Sidelined, by Becca Steele

From USA Today and Wall Street Journal bestselling author Becca Steele comes a new standalone M/M college romance.

I’ve been in love with my best friend, Ander, for as long as I can remember. I’ve always kept my feelings to myself, knowing that I’d never have a chance because he’s straight.
Until the day he does me a favour by pretending to be my boyfriend.

After that, things change. He’s suddenly interested in experimenting with guys…just not with me.
It’s time for me to move on, and accept that nothing between us will ever change. He only sees me as his best friend.

Except…now he’s looking at me in a different way.
Does he feel something more than friendship for me, or am I just deluding myself?
I guess it’s time to find out.

Sidelined is an M/M new adult college romance with best friends to lovers and bi awakening themes. It is the second book in the LSU series. Each book can be read as a standalone.

An Unexpected Gift, by Harper Robson

Matt
Discovering you’re not as straight as you thought when you’re in your mid-forties is… well… interesting. But a one-night stand over a year ago turned my world upside down, and now I’m ready to explore that side of myself. But no matter who I date, no one compares to him.

Case
I’m the party guy, always down for a good time with only one rule: I don’t do repeats. I knew right away, though, that one night with Matt would never be enough. But when I woke up, he was gone, and I can’t get him out of my head.

When we somehow end up trapped together during the blizzard of the century, over Christmas, I’m not sure if it’s a gift or a curse. Should I hold tight to the rule that’s kept my heart safe for years? Or does it mean something that we’ve found each other again after a night neither one of us could forget?

An Unexpected Gift is a steamy, second-chance, bi-awakening romance featuring an unforgettable one-night-stand, A middle-aged tech CEO still figuring out who he is, and a good-time-guy who doesn’t know what to do when he finds someone he wants more than one night with.

Star of the Game, by Amy Aislin

Felix only wants two things:

But he’s not willing to risk two decades of friendship for something more. Besides, a bout of writer’s block is preventing him from creating new material, and he’s got deadlines to meet. He doesn’t need any distractions—and Emery is the biggest distraction of all.

Emery only wants two things:
1. To play hockey.
2. His best friend, Felix.

He’s ready to risk it all for a shot at being together. While he should be concentrating on playing his best hockey so his team will grant him a contract extension, there’s no reason he can’t multitask.

With their careers at a crossroads, the timing for romance couldn’t be worse—but when Felix is forced to move in with Emery, will Emery finally convince him to take a chance at becoming the stars of their own game?

Champagne Charade, by Leighton Greene

It was supposed to be fun – but things are getting too real, too fast.

After I got dumped, I never got around to telling my best friend. Why relive the pain? But his New Year’s Eve wedding is coming up soon, and I also never got around to removing my ex from the guest list.

Cue my current hookup and Dom-on-demand, Damon, joking that he could stand in as my ex. A fake name, a fake relationship…

It’s a terrible idea. Of course I’m not going to do it.

But when I run into my best friend unexpectedly, I can’t bring myself to interrupt his dream wedding, and the little white lie just…

Slips out.

It’s only for the wedding. Only for New Year’s Eve. One little charade…

I know Damon isn’t interested in anything real. I know all those kisses and hugs are just for show. But I still can’t help falling under his spell.

I have to remember: after the wedding – and the year – is over, so is our fake relationship.

The clock is ticking down…

But what if our charade isn’t just an act?

***

Champagne Charade is a 31,000-word novella wrapping up the kinky Friends of Friends series with humor, heart, and a whole lot of heat. Say goodbye to the old year and hello to the new with this fake relationship romance, including hookups pining for more, a winter wedding for old friends, and a fresh start for everyone at the stroke of midnight.

Can’t Help Falling in Love with an Alien, by Chloe Archer

Working for the Alliance is a sci-fi nerd’s dream–aka mine–come true. I’ve even won the heart of my grumpy-sexy alien boyfriend. Nothing can bring me down, baby. I’m walking on freaking sunshine! Except now one of Kai’s douchey AF exes decides to turn up like a bad case of crabs that he can’t get rid of. I don’t trust him one bit. But I’ve got even bigger problems to worry about. Like helping some awesome aliens in trouble, and maybe moving in with Kai, who’s totally going to propose any day now—right? Oh, and my shady relatives might be hiring an assassin to take me out. So, you know, a day in the life of River Sullivan. I’m sure everything’s going to be fine. Won’t it?

KAI

Just when we think we have a new lead on the drug dealer targeting extraterrestrials on Earth, we run into a major roadblock. And the longer this mess of an investigation drags on without answers, the less I like it. Outside of work though, things are going amazingly well with my adorable mate–dear galactic gods, how did that happen? But with an ex back in my life wanting to be friends again, and the threat of a potential assassin looming, things are getting a little complicated. I love River with both my hearts—and all five tentacles—but even I’m worried I might not be able to protect him from the dangers ahead. Also, I need to figure out how the heck I’m going to propose to him. River deserves something “epic,” and I don’t want to let him down. Am I going to be able to deliver?

And possibly an epic proposal? This book has an HFN ending and no cheating. Never fear—there is a guaranteed HEA by the end of the series!

The Resort, by Ana Ashley

A hotel room. Three men. One unforgettable encounter.

Jake
I had a plan. Graduate from my MA and work for my uncle’s resort.

After the most incredible experience of my life, I ran.
But you know, as they say, life has a way of catching up with you.

Now, Mal is my boss at the resort, and fighting my attraction to him and Griff becomes harder and harder…pun very much intended.

As we give in to the attraction between us, navigate the conflict of interest, and our growing feelings for each other, all that’s left to figure out is…will there be room for three?

The Resort is a standalone contemporary MMM romance that features an age gap, cute bunnies, and three men who can’t help falling in love.

The Rogue, by Silvia Violet

Rogue can charm the pants off anyone, but can he catch a man who might as well be a ghost?

Eight seconds on a bull was never as scary as falling for a man who might disappear any second. I might have left the rodeo to work my brother’s ranch, but I never lost my taste for danger… and I’ve never met anyone more dangerous than Special Agent Ghost.

My overprotective brothers warned me away from him, but I’ve never been one to take good advice. When Ghost and I came together, it was explosive… and also healing.

We both have secrets, and neither of us ever thought we’d find comfort like we have in each other’s arms, but he doesn’t know how to stick around, and I’ve never learned how to let someone love me.Unsure how long the fire between us will burn, we keep our relationship hidden until the day when an enemy’s bullet shatters the hidden world we’ve created. Now we’ll both have to make a choice: to keep hiding our true selves or put our cards on the table and fight for the future we want… together.

Saving West, by Denver Shaw

How far would you go to save someone?

I can’t afford distractions.
I’ve been put on academic probation and I’m one mistake away from being expelled and losing everything I’ve worked so hard for.
All I want is to make my mother proud and honor her memory by getting my degree.
My plan this semester is to keep my head down, focus on my studies, and stay out of trouble.
But fate is fickle, and it seems like she has other plans when she suddenly dumps him at my feet.
Weston Perkins, the university’s star football player.
He’s the worst kind of distraction — beautiful and vicious, arrogant and hot as sin, troubled and vulnerable.
I can’t bear to be around him, and yet, I can’t seem to stay away.
But the more time I spend with him, the more I realize that there is something very wrong with West.
He’s harboring a dark secret and desperately needs a friend.
I’m going to help him, even if he doesn’t want it, and even if it means putting my future on the line.
Because some things in life are worth getting in trouble for.

Saving West is a slow-burn, emotional, hurt/comfort MM romance with moderate angst and a hard-earned HEA.
