The Office Nemesis Calamity, by Hayden Hall

I hate his pretty lips. I hate how good they taste.

Theo

He’s the most infuriating, immature frat brat I’ve ever had the misfortune of coming across. Again.

He’s also the guy I dumped in high-school when I realized I was straight after all. And he just so happens to be the intern at his dad’s company; the very same one I work for.

A terrible misunderstanding puts Justin Lewis into my care. I’m supposed to teach him how his father’s business works. But he’s determined to do it the hard way.

Four years ago, after breaking his heart, I experienced what Justin’s hatred could do. He ruined the final weeks of high-school for me. He scared me into skipping my prom night.

No more.

I’m not that frightened kid anymore. I’ve come far without anyone’s help and I’m not letting one begrudging ex ruin all that I’ve achieved.

If only he wasn’t so irresistible when he pouted.

If only I could stop leaning in to catch his scent.

If only I wasn’t about to make the same mistake all over again.

Justin

It was supposed to be simple; do the internship, make Dad happy, and go away to lick my wounds. I’m sick of the way I live, but a terrible breakup from four years ago still haunts me.

Until I start my internship and discover there’s Theo Wright in my office. Or am I in his office? Depends on who you ask.
The guy hates me and I know why. But I hate him just as much. He wrecked me for good when he turned suddenly straight after one encounter and I never trusted another guy since.

If I’m going to earn my ticket out, I need to do this boring internship. And Theo just so happens to be the only thing to help me pass the time. Annoying him is my new, favorite hobby.

Until I take it a step too far.

And he blushes like a maiden.

And my heart nearly explodes.

Maybe there’s more to him than I let myself believe. The way he looks at me while we work is almost enough to give me a glimmer of hope. If I was foolish enough, I might try something that could burn down in flames again.

Oh, who am I kidding? I’ve always been foolish enough.

The Office Nemesis Calamity is the seventh novel in the Frat Brats of Santa Barbara series, but it can be read on its own. Expect hundreds of pages of grumpy-versus-grumpy banter, through-the-roof steam, two sworn enemies giving each other a second chance, and a sweet farewell to the Highgate Academy.

Forever With Hardin, by Sophia Nixs

Finding the One was just a dating app, right?

It was meant to be one blind date.

To stop me from acting out and doing something stupid when I was on a business trip.

I never expected for fate to intervene and to set me up with the guy I’d lusted over for years.

He was my best friend; my business partner.

Could I finally admit my true feelings or risk losing everything I’d ever worked for in the process?

Double Up, by Courtney W. Dixon

Noah and I were like a double-up wave. Together we were stronger and more powerful.

Zayden

It didn’t matter if I was well-behaved or a good son. My parents refused to accept that I wasn’t a sinner when I kissed a boy at fifteen years old. I soon found myself without parents and a home. But fate had other plans for me when desperation had me stealing a surfboard. The owners of the surf shop I stole from took me under their wing and fostered me. It was then that I met the blond boy, so full of love and sunshine, who would become the love of my life.


Noah

I tried hard to be a good son, taking care of my mom whenever she was on one of her drunken binges, which was all the time. But it was exhausting. I needed a break and a job. That was when I met the feral and angry boy with golden eyes. He was desperate for a friend and I wanted to be that person. His surfing club hired me so that I could finally find my way out from my mother’s suffocation. It was also there that I found someone who would love me without conditions.

Zayden and Noah had been together for five years, loving and supporting each other, through ups and downs. Will they survive the next trial life just tossed at them?

Old School Discipline, by Misha Horne

A slacker with a record and a bad attitude. A possessive bully with a very firm hand. A dorm room that can barely contain the heat.

I never planned on continuing my pointless education. But then I got arrested. Again. Hey, if those laptops weren’t meant to be stolen, they should have been locked up better.

Somehow, my latest stunt and lousy attitude landed me in Redwood Academy. An exclusive university where they’re supposed to turn screw ups like me into upstanding citizens. Or some crap like that. But, okay, fine, whatever. Still sounded better than jail.

So, what’s the problem?

Well, let me name a few. The dean’s got it out for me, because I might have broken a fairly big rule on day one. Gotta make an impression, right?

The troublemaking twink across the hall is obsessed with me, and his overprotective boyfriend doesn’t like that very much. What can I say? It’s hard looking this damn good.

And then there’s Bax.

My obnoxious new roommate has a vicious sneer and massive biceps, and a past no one will talk about. I hate him like hell. Except when I don’t. When he uses those strong hands to punish me in ways I’ve never dreamed of, hate is the last thing on my mind.

Oh, did I forget to mention the spanking?

See, Redwood’s all about the old school discipline. And, apparently, so am I. Because getting bent over and spanked by my roommate is pushing buttons I never knew I had. 

Any normal person would be planning a jailbreak, I guess. Believe me, I’m tempted. But I’m starting to think I might actually belong here. Even worse, I think I might want to belong. 

To Bax. 

And that’s definitely a problem.

———-

Old School Discipline is an enemies-to-lovers college romance with lots of steam, lots of kink discovery, and lots of spanking. This book includes angry, annoyed action between roommates who can’t stand each other and absolutely refuse to believe they could be perfect for each other. No matter how much they like fooling around.

Hero, by Kiki Burrelli

Mercenaries. Outcasts. Alphas.

Knox knows all the five of them have left now is each other. That, and the driving desire to find who had slaughtered their pack and make that person pay.

But investigating a tragedy with only rubble as evidence requires money and time. Knox can find one and use it to buy the other. They may be the last remaining members of a once thriving pack, but they are no strangers to taking the types of jobs that would keep lesser men awake at night.

Finding and returning some young punk to his rich, asshole father shouldn’t be all that difficult.

Jazz Whitten lives as he likes, always. Since leaving home when he was young, he’s operated under a single rule, never stay where you aren’t wanted. Using his unique ability and the sleight of hand he’s perfected over the years, life as a fugitive isn’t that bad. It’s lonely at times, but freedom is more important than companionship.

But when Jazz comes head to head with the latest team hired by his father, he forgets his own rule. He knows it is money, not affection that keeps the team on his tail. Their leader, Knox, is merciless and focused, but there’s something else about the man. It isn’t his kindness—Knox is a brute and unfortunately for Jazz, he’s smart too—but Knox radiates a type of pain that Jazz is all too familiar with.

Jazz is as slippery as he is sexy and it takes every trick Knox has to catch up with him. But when he does, how will the stone-cold mercenary ever give him up?

Spark, by Susan Scott Shelley

The intensity of their immediate connection outweighs Finlay’s hesitation over dating someone who plays a dangerous sport, and makes Mateo determined to fit their relationship into his life without dropping any balls. When their worlds turn upside down, Finlay’s fears and Mateo’s worst nightmare collide. With their differences and doubts laid bare, can their burgeoning relationship survive the strain or will their bond be severed?

D!ckhead, by K.A. Merikan

“He says I’m the dumbest hostage he’s ever had. But I’m also the hottest.”

Hammer. Enforcer for the Demon Brethren MC. Sociopath. Butcher. Weapon of choice: Sledgehammer

Dex. Shameless. Perpetually horny. No impulse control. Weapon of choice: Dumb jokes


From the moment Dex saw Hammer smash a man’s head open like it was a watermelon, he was obsessed. No, really, obsessed.

He is thrilled when life offers him the opportunity to introduce himself to the bloodthirsty biker god. So maybe it’s not so perfect that Hammer is his prisoner, but beggars can’t be choosers.

Standing guard at a secret junkyard prison is serious business, but Dex’s horny brain still gets the best of him. One thing leads to another and—oops—now he’s Hammer’s hostage, they’re going God knows where, and Dex lands in a cage next to a… tiger?

Oh well, he’s here for a good time, not a long time.

Hammer isn’t letting anyone jail him. Not even his club brothers. He’s not a traitor, and he will prove it if it kills him.

His ticket out of captivity appears in the form of a gay, tattooed, blond ball of chaos who seems to have a crush on him. Hammer might be straight but seduction isn’t beneath him if it gets him what he wants.

To Hammer’s bewilderment, even as a hostage, Dex doesn’t stop hitting on him. Strangely, the brat’s silly smiles and motormouth begin to chip Hammer’s armor, awakening feelings he never thought himself capable of.

Add to that Dex’s surprising talent for dismembering bodies, and it turns out Hammer might be the one in over his head.

Demon, by Joel Abernathy

Falling in love with an obsessive serial killer was the last thing on my to-do list.

I was born into a world of villains, so it came as no great surprise when my brothers fell for the most twisted monsters of all. A sociopathic fixer. A psycho sadistic cop whose name belongs in the dictionary next to corruption.

Maybe I’m the one who’s crazy, thinking I could have any semblance of a normal life. The worst part is, I can’t even blame them for my not-so-perfect marriage crashing and burning, or my struggles as a single father. When my young son goes missing and a ransom note turns up demanding a trade for the serial killer my brothers-in-law keep locked in a basement, though?

Yeah, I’m blaming them for that. And I’ll tear the world apart to get my kid back–even if it means keeping Demon leashed at my side.

James is something far more dangerous than Silas and Malcolm. He’s an unhinged, self-righteous killer who’s on a mission to punish the sinners who broke him in the first place.

He’s also my only hope of ever seeing my son again. When you embark on a journey through hell, you want a demon on your team.

It’s when he ends up in my bed that it’s a whole different problem.



Author’s Note: Demon is an intense, high-heat, high-angst MM Mafia Romance brimming with violence and mayhem. This book is significantly darker than the previous two. Please check the author’s website for a full list of story elements that may be unsettling for some readers. While each book in the series features a different couple and is technically a standalone, it is recommended to read them in order.

Sleight of Hand, by Charlie Cochet

Former Special Forces Green Beret, Sacha “Joker” Wilder, is well-versed on the subject of demolitions. As a silent partner of Four Kings Security, Joker spends his days working alongside his brothers-in-arms and his best boy, Chip—a bomb-sniffing Belgian Malinois with sass. Years of military and private security experience have prepared Joker for almost anything, except the explosive attraction between him and Giovanni Galanos.

When Gio returns from his travels abroad, everyone is charmed by the handsome billionaire philanthropist, but in Joker’s experience, anyone who’s too good to be true usually is. Gio is hiding something, but the more time Joker spends around Gio, the more his walls start crumbling, leaving him exposed and at risk of losing his heart, something he swore he would never do.

Danger lurks in the shadows as someone sets their sights on Gio, and secrets are forced into the light. If Gio and Joker are to have any kind of future together, they’ll have to face difficult truths, because where love is concerned, it’ll take more than sleight of hand to make things work.
