Bad Pucking Timing, by Michele Lenard

The ice is my happy place. My sanctuary. The source of my happiest memories, and the promise of my future. It’s also the reason I’m living a lie.

As a kid you don’t think about the sacrifices you’ll have to make for your dreams. After all, dreams are supposed to be happy, so all you see is the finish line, not what you’ll have to give up to get there.

I surrendered a carefree childhood to hours upon hours of grueling practices. Abandoned life with my family in favor of a boarding school that would hone my skills to perfection. But my biggest sacrifice, the one I couldn’t predict I’d have to make as a little boy, is denying who I am.

To the world I’m the top rookie in this year’s NHL draft. The most promising defender the league has seen in years. For years that’s all I wanted to be, and now that I’m here…

I knew my career would intersect with my personal life at some point, I just didn’t expect it to happen before I played my first pro game.

That’s why he is so dangerous. My lifelong dream is within reach, and now there’s another I want to pursue. If only it weren’t such bad pucking timing.

Surrender, by R. Phoenix & Adara Wolf


When I was hired to kill Cristiano Fiore, I thought I’d get in, take the shot, and get out. I didn’t count on the explosion. I didn’t count on him rescuing me.

I didn’t count on him taking care of me, dominating me, and giving me the best sex of my life. I didn’t expect the word “Daddy” to make me feel so safe. He’s making it harder and harder for me to go back to my old life.

I know this can’t last. I know he doesn’t mean it. But every minute together makes me hope for the one thing I haven’t dared dream of: a place to belong.


Mafia life is full of danger, so it’s no surprise when I find myself the target of an assassin… but the subsequent explosion seems like overkill.

When it becomes clear that someone is trying to take out both of us, the only choice is to work together. I’ve never been a caregiver, or a Daddy, before, but there’s something about Fox that makes me want to take care of him in every way imaginable — including the bedroom.

But when the dust settles and we solve this puzzle, can I really trust someone who tried to kill me not to try again?

Surrender is part of the Ruthless Daddies multi-author collab and a complete standalone. Want more deliciously morally gray Daddies and boys? Grab the whole series!

In My Dreams, by Caz May

When the guy I’ve been in love with for years-my best friend Jebediah-gets married, I stupidly fall down the rabbit hole of getting it on with a random hot as hades stranger after the wedding. Logan blamed our hookup on his being drunk, telling me he’s straight, and no one can know we kissed and hooked up. But even if he was drunk Logan was into me, and I’m definitely into him. He admitted things to me, in the throes of passion, feelings that he swore he’d never told anyone about feeling, and told me to never tell anyone. He’s practically ghosting me now, admitting he can’t be with me because he can’t let anyone know the secrets he’s hiding. I’ve got no one to tell Logan’s secrets to anyway, and I’m never going to see him again in reality. The only place I can be with Logan now is in my dreams.

Seeing my best friend Aidan all loved up and happy at a wedding of our mutual friends from high school, when I’m still harbouring feelings for him and my girlfriend of four years has just broken up with me is the pits. She blames me for my wandering eye, but I’ve been hiding my secret feelings and desires for years and she’s only just started to notice because we’re at the point in our lives that our friends are getting married and having babies. And I honestly can’t think of anything I’d rather not do than marry someone I don’t love. All I wanted to do at this wedding was get drunk, and hookup with a hot, willing stranger, that I didn’t have to care about in the light of day. But when hiding in the shadows, and not facing reality becomes too much after hooking up I’m forced to face a situation I never dreamed of and I have to focus on growing up and only being my true self in my dreams.
