A sexy, passionate, utterly addictive standalone MM romance from #1 NYT Bestseller Lauren Blakely! Every bartender should follow one simple rule—don't go home with the customers. That’s been easy for me to stick to, until the night a cocky, confident, and sinfully charming hockey star walks into my bar. This sexy athlete is too hard to resist, especially when he makes it clear how much he wants the “sarcastic, witty, hot AF” guy behind the bar—also known as me. Still, I’m not keen on breaking my own rules since I know where that can lead—no place good. But when that man makes his case with one bone-searing kiss on the streets of London, I throw resistance out the window. What could go wrong with a hot, dirty, no-strings-attached fling before he leaves town in five days? Trouble is, soon our nights together lead to days, to long conversations, to getting to know each other, and to something I never expected—falling ridiculously hard for a man who’s getting on a plane to America when I live a world away. My life is here. His is there. And no amount of falling or feeling will change that one big problem. Warning: contains hot hotel nights, loads of dirty talk, PDA all over London, and two sexy, witty, charming alpha heroes…

And while she didn’t see herself as ‘classically beautiful’, she had no shortage of options in the boyfriend department. She just hadn’t found one who held her interest. Until she laid eyes on Eric Larsson, and then it was lust at first sight. He packed the perfect mix of smoldering sexy and unapologetic cool into his blond-haired, blue-eyed, ridiculously hot six-foot-four frame. One smile from him was enough to twist her insides. But it wasn’t just his looks, he was smart and funny—charming in the most a-dork-able way. The only problem was...Tia had never actually met him. Every Dark Nights tale is breathtakingly sexy and magically romantic.
Il y a trois mots que la plupart des mecs ne veulent pas entendre au premier rendez-vous. Non, pas ceux-là… Je veux parler de : « Mets-moi enceinte. » La célibataire que je suis en a assez de jouer, des faux plans et de devoir flirter encore et encore. Je sais ce que je veux le plus, et ce n’est pas le grand amour. C’est un polichinelle dans le tiroir, et je n’ai pas peur de draguer mon collègue chaud bouillant pour qu’il fasse le travail. Ryder est magnifique, vif d’esprit et torride – et il est également connu pour avoir la phobie de l’engagement. Ce qui fait de lui le candidat idéal pour un petit dépôt à la banque… ma banque. Je ne tomberai pas amoureuse de lui, il ne tombera pas amoureux de moi, et il n’y a aucune chance que ce bébé nous rapproche. Pas vrai ? **** Il y a certains mots que tous les mecs veulent entendre au premier rendez-vous. « Chez toi ou chez moi ? » Quand ma séduisante collègue de travail me fait une offre qui ne m’engage à rien et implique son appartement, le mien, ou n’importe quel lieu – ainsi que n’importe quelle position – je ne peux pas refuser. Après tout, mon travail ressemble à celui d’un coach et ma dernière mission pour le bien de l’humanité a consisté à créer un manuel sûr et éprouvé de ce qu’il faut faire ou dire pour mettre une femme dans son lit – je veux dire, pour la faire tomber amoureuse de vous. Alors, quand Nicole me dit qu’elle est prête à expérimenter ma liste, j’accepte sa proposition malgré son ÉNORME condition. Pouvoir tester n’importe quelle position, n’importe où, n’importe quand. Aucun risque que je recherche autre chose chez une femme... Et si j’avais tort ?
Let me just say -- none of this was supposed to happen. I didn't expect the letter to go viral. I didn't think anyone would figure out who Dear Sexy Ex was. And I especially never thought he would find out about it. Yeah, bit of a miscalculation there. But see, I need the money to fund my brand new venture. And Dear Sexy Ex, well, it turns out he needs me to save his business. By becoming his fake fiancee. Yup, that's the pickle I find myself in -- pretending to be madly in love with the charming, brilliant, and utterly infuriating man known as Dear Sexy Ex. Only, it's not an act. And he can never know.
