Everyone I know is married.
It doesn't bother me. I like my life the way it is. Since I'm single though, when my best friend and her husband finally decide to go on their dream honeymoon, she asks me to watch their three-year-old son.
Of course, I say yes.
What my best friend neglects to tell me is that I won't be babysitting alone.
Feeling Max might be too much for me to handle, her husband asks his only single friend to help.
Nick Carrington and I have met a couple of dozen times. I've never really given him a second thought--other than to say he's kind of a jerk. Out loud. So he can hear. Sure, he's tall, dark, and handsome. And yes, he has the best ass I've ever seen, and I mean ever seen quite literally. You see he mooned me at last year's Fourth of July barbecue because, like I said, he's a jerk.
He always has to be the life of the party.
He's also arrogant.
And a playboy.
I'd even go as far as to say he's a manwhore.
And now I'm stuck with him...for two weeks!
Don't look at me like that!
It wasn't like I had a choice.
Besides...what could possibly happen? It's not like we're going to fall in love or anything like that!
*** Look for BIG SHOT, HOT STUFF, and Uptown Girl to complete the Sexy Jerk World. All four books are standalones with overlapping characters. ***
The whole stethoscope-and-white coat thing isn't my cup of tea.
I prefer a man with an artistic vein in his body. 9 - 5 hours. And I can definitely do without the half-lidded, sleepy bedroom eyes. (Okay, so those are kind of sexy.)
Tall, dark, and handsome doesn't change the fact that he's arrogant, cocky, and rude.
Not that I care, but he's made it clear he wants nothing to do with a quirky girl like me, which is why he said no.
Turns out no isn't an option.
I have a quickie wedding to plan, and Dr. Jake Kissinger doesn't have a choice. He looks at our situation like he's stuck with me, but in reality, I'm stuck with him. Stuck with his pouty mouth. His long, lean body. And stuck with those loose, low riding scrub pants. (Okay, so the doctor thing is growing on me.)
When spending time together turns into more than it should, I know I'm in trouble.
He isn't supposed to make my heart pound.
I'm not supposed to make him look twice.
And we aren't supposed to spend the night together. (Okay, so he has more than one artistic vein in his body, and other places.)
Falling for him is definitely a mistake.
Here's the thing...
Jake is unavailable, and I know it.
Just not in the way you might think.
I guess you can't have your cake and eat it too.

When rock star River Wilde comes back into Dahlia’s life, their super-charged connection runs deeper than either of them ever expected. The more time they spend together, the more intense their relationship becomes, and Dahlia believes at last she has found her soul mate.
But as old bonds fade and Dahlia’s grief begins to lift, her guilt and confusion remain. River desperately wants to be the one who mends what’s been broken—but with a past that refuses to stay buried, is it possible for their future to begin?
The danger isn’t over.
It’s only just begun.
Circumstances brought them together and their undeniable connection won’t let them part. But when the past and the present collide, emotions run high—things are said, lines are crossed, and rules are broken. Both focused on crushing the enemy, the retribution is almost too much to bear. Still, there’s no undoing what has already been done, and every action has a consequence.

Sometimes your only choice is the one you’d rather not make. Pushed to the limit, the tainted love of Logan and Elle is in jeopardy. With outside forces driving a wedge between them, they have to dig deep within their souls to release the ghosts of their pasts, and fight even harder for what neither knew they needed—each other.

Xander knows he should keep his distance. But once they’re on the road, he can’t resist pursuing her for a second chance. Yet a jealous Damon can’t let her go—and he’s keeping dangerous secrets that could destroy them all.

But I need a fake girlfriend…fast.
I’m about to lose everything.

Getting over her wasn’t easy.
But convincing her to help should be.
She owes me.
First I have to suck it up and pretend she didn’t rip my heart from my chest.
Easier said than done.
I can’t forgive or forget.
Then again, this is just business.
Turns out my ‘girlfriend’ is as sweet and delicious as ever.
Temptation and chaos wrapped in a nice little package.
She’s my heaven and hell.
When resisting her proves impossible, I tell myself it’s only sex.
That a hate f-ck is just that.
I can’t possibly be falling.
No way. Not for her. Never again.
Famous last words.
