Heart Starter (Rebels of Rushmore Book 3) by Michelle Hercules

My plans were simple. Graduate from college, get a job, and not worry anymore if I can make next month’s rent.

It turns out I might have a shot at getting drafted to play in the NFL, and nothing will distract me from that goal.

I didn’t count on Sadie Clarkson wrecking my plans. Our first meeting was explosive, to say the least. Now I can’t stop thinking about her sassy attitude or sexy mouth.

On top of being a distraction I don’t need, she’s also the coach’s daughter and off-limits.

But forbidden fruit always tastes better. She might cost me everything I’ve worked for, and yet, I’m willing to risk it all. My sanity. My heart. My soul.

the lesson by TL Mayhew

Money, those who have it, are considered the elite. Socialites who want for nothing and expect everything. Those who don’t have it, they’re prepared to surpass everything in their power to achieve it, even if it involves jeopardizing the lives of the ones they love.

I’m Francis Harlyn Aldridge, and I’m one of the elites. All I wanted was a normal life, one full of love and family, but what I got was jet-setting parents, a jealous boyfriend, and a best friend who is dealing with her own problems.

Then, something I never expected happened: Winston Asher Harrington III.

He’s the hot English teacher that, as of late, has taken an interest in me. He claims it’s to help with my grades, but the way the energy crackles between us, it’s clear there’s something more.

We both know our families will never approve, so we’ve been keeping our relationship under wraps. Or that’s what we thought. One misstep, and suddenly, our lives fall apart, setting up a chain reaction of heartache, revenge and murder.

Bitten by Deception (True Immortality #4) by S. Young

English rockstar Elijah Webb is more than meets the eye. Being different might have made his childhood hell, but as an adult it’s opened doors to fame and fortune … and the supernatural underworld. Now that he knows all about the creatures that go bump in the night, Elijah’s pretty sure he’s a warlock. Powerful than most, but a warlock, nonetheless.
What else could he be, right?
Vampire Echo Payne is more than happy to infiltrate Elijah’s life to uncover whether the rockstar is one of the seven fae-borne prophesied to open the gate to Faerie. Having encountered one of his kind before, she knows he’s fae as soon as they meet. Her adoptive father, William, might want her to kill Elijah, but Echo has other plans now that she knows William is the monster who destroyed her family. She plans to end William Payne’s reign of terror and save her sister from the same fate she herself endured. But Echo needs Elijah’s help. Who cares about the blazing attraction that flares between them? Not Echo. She needs his fae gifts, not his addictive kisses.
When Elijah discovers Echo’s deception and the truth about what he is, he wants nothing but to protect his human parents. To do that, he has to trust the sexy vampire he can’t help but wish wanted him as much as she wanted revenge. Together they will travel across continents to help the other protect those they hold dearest and in doing so discover how deeply entwined their destinies really are…
For a peaceful future together might just be in the cards if Echo can let go of the past. But to win it, they will have to join forces with the other fae and their mates. It will take all of them to bring down their enemies. And if they fail, no one can save the human world from the darkness of Faerie.

Unspoken by Sandi Lynn

Her name was Ellie Scott, and she was the most beautiful woman I’d ever seen.

Our worlds collided one day in the produce section of the grocery store when I accidentally hit the corner of the display of apples, and they started fall. I was speechless the moment she looked at me and her beautiful emerald eyes met mine. It felt like time had stopped and suddenly all was right in my disheveled life.

We lived in different worlds. Mine was a world of hearing, and hers was a world of silence. Despite her being deaf, the chemistry between us was undeniable.

But I faced two problems: the secret I held and my family. I was born a Walker and came from a family of wealth and status. My parents would never approve or accept her, and my mother would stop at nothing to keep us apart.

They threatened my career and my future. What they didn’t understand was that I would give up everything to be with her.

Then everything went to hell the day my ex-fiancée showed up with some news that threatened to tear us apart.

My life was finally right, and I wasn’t going to let anyone, or anything destroy it.

Knockout (Tapped Out Book 4) by Cari Quinn & Taryn Elliott

She’s forbidden to me…and so is he. Too bad I want them both.
MMA fighters are supposed to leave it all in the ring. But I have a secret. Two secrets, actually.

Secret #1: I can’t deny the simmering attraction I feel toward Lily, the sweetly innocent daughter of an overprotective cop who is like a second father to me. And Lily’s friend JC? Freaking A, he’s hot. He also just happens to be renovating the gym I train at and is always walking around shirtless and sweaty.

Secret #2: I love women. I love men just as much. Once I get an unforgettable taste of both Lily and JC, I’m addicted. One night turns into more, and soon I’m ready to walk away from everything just so I don’t have to give up either of them.

Now with all of my secrets coming to a head, the only question left is how much I’m willing to lose.

Author’s note: Lots of boy-on-boy—and boy-on-girl—touching ahead. Knockout is book 4 in the Tapped Out MMA series and is a short novel with a happily ever after ending and no cliffhanger. Previously released by Cari Quinn in the Hunks, Hammers and HEAs anthology in 2015.

When Heroes Fall (Anti-Heroes in Love Duet Book 1) by Giana Darling

From Wall Street Journal bestselling author Giana Darling comes an enemies to lovers, forbidden romance between an ice cold lawyer and her infamous mafioso client who is on trial for murder…

I am the villain of my own story…

Jilted by my fiancé.
A disappointment to my family.
Haunted by my childhood traumas.
I felt so much all my life that I resolved to feeling nothing at all.
Until I met my match.
As the most infamous mafioso of the 21st century, Dante Salvatore was madly passionate, unequivocally bad, and entirely too dangerous to know. He was everything I abhorred, yet I found myself representing him in the biggest criminal trial of the decade.
I was so focused on winning and achieving the success I deserved that I didn’t notice the gorgeous black-eyed man’s effect on me until it was too late. My icy heart had been held too close to his flame and now I wouldn’t let Dante go down without fighting with everything I had in me. Even if the cost of a new life with him meant the loss of my old life and everything I thought I held dear.

*Book One in the Anti-Heroes in Love Duet.*

Excerpt When Heroes Fall by Giana Darling

Crack.
The bullet shattered the glass, but I felt none of those sharp edges nor the impact of that metal projectile lodging itself in my flesh.
Instead, I gasped because the air compressed from my lungs by the weight of a large, incredibly heavy Italian man caging me against the seat.
I tipped my face up, mouth open, eyes dry and prickling with shock. Dante caught my gaze, his own burning coal black and just as hot.
For an instant, just one, I felt his wrath move through me like a tangible thing, something heady and drugging like the finest whiskey or the best Italian wine.
Then he was yelling, “Cazzo, drive, man! NOW!”
With a squeal of tires, Mr. Janko revved the engine and gunned us forward into the intersection despite the red light.
Another shot was fired from behind us, this time wedging itself with a clunk into the trunk of the car.
Dante curled even tighter around Yara and me, protecting us with his massive frame. Surrounded by his warm citrus and pepper scent, pressed tight to his unyielding chest, I almost felt safe despite the madman shooting at us.
He remained there for a few moments until we were long gone from the scene, racing through the streets like a northeasterly storm.
When he finally pulled away, he checked Yara quickly then turned his eyes to me. One large hand went for my face, and I flinched despite myself.
I’d never seen hands like that, hands that large, that rough, that undeniably cloaked in metaphorical red.
Something in his eyes flickered at my reaction, but still, he reached out to pluck a small shard of glass from my cheekbone. I didn’t notice the pain until he pulled it out, making me hiss at the little burst of hurt.
“It’ll heal,” he assured, swiping his thumb over the droplet of blood there then, shockingly, disgustingly, he brought it to his lush mouth and sucked it off.
My stomach roiled, but my thighs tingled even as my mind rebelled against the unwanted intimacy of his touch.
