Knockout by Tracey Ward

Kellen Coulter has a way with women. A boxer from the wrong side of town, he worked his way through the wealthy daughters at Weston High with a brilliant smile, sweet words and vacant eyes. No one gets close. No one gets through. No one knows the secrets hiding inside.

No one but me. I’m the only girl he’s ever let in. The only one who has ever truly seen him. When we met I was just a kid, an old soul with an open ear and a full understanding of what it was to be misunderstood by everyone around you. But even I didn’t know the demons sleeping inside him. Not until now.

Not until it might be too late.

This is not a cookie cutter romance.
It is a knockdown, heartbreaking journey through friendship, love, and loss – all to find the one person who can see you clear as day, even when you’ve lost all sight of yourself.

*Due to language and sexual content, this book is not recommended for readers under 18.

Consumed (Consumed Series Book 1) by Skyla Madi

**Mature Content Warning** Recommended for ages 17+ due to language and sexual content.

Olivia James has never been one to walk on the wild side, at least not until she meets Seth Marc—a cocky, sexy fighter at her father’s gym.

He’s infuriating, nauseatingly addictive and she just can’t seem to shake him. He’s only been in town a short while and his name is already on everyone’s lips. He’s the kind of guy moms’ warn their daughters about—the kind that leaves a trail of shattered hearts behind him and he has Olivia in his sights.

Olivia has never met anyone as confusing as Seth and his hot and cold attitude constantly sends her reeling. She’s never wanted anyone’s touch so badly in her life, but having recently come out of a long term relationship diving into another is something she’d prefer to avoid.

Determined for his touch, but not to let him under her skin, Olivia embarks on the most thrilling ride of her life.

My Best Friend’s Brother: A Love Story (A Bashir Family Romance Book 1) by Kennedy Claire

Fire, meet Gasoline.

Attractive, young and equally strong-headed, they are a match never meant to be made. But when they get too close, they cannot deny what ignites between them.

It’s explosive…and more than Scarlett ever hoped for.

Growing up poor and motherless, smart and ambitious Scarlett Sommerfield never thought she would find someone to belong to.

Until now.

In her best friend’s palatial home on the right side of the tracks, she finds security and kindness—with the exception of her best friend’s brooding and arrogant older brother, Dev, who struggles with his own demons.

But when she moves in with his family for her senior year of high school, she learns he is more than he has revealed over the years…

…And a forbidden love sparks between them reaching an explosive climax during a night of unbridled and breathtaking passion.

It is the best night of Scarlett’s young life and she foolishly believes nothing could ruin it.

Until his parents return and everything goes to hell.

Steeped in outdated rules and traditions about love and marriage, the Bashir Family makes no secret that Scarlett simply doesn’t measure up as a match for their eldest son. And the very people who made her feel part of the family now want nothing more than to see her gone for good.

Including her former best friend.

Will Scarlett and Dev’s love survive against his intolerant family, her personal misfortunes and a dark life-changing secret he’s kept simmering just under the surface? Or will Scarlett end up back where she started: facing her future utterly alone.

“A fast paced, beautifully written young love story with intrigue, passion and smart witty dialogue.” – Adrienne Chism

Chase Kenzington loves two things: fast cars and women. At twenty-two, he has the entire world at his feet.

When he and his friends decide to spend the summer at his father’s beach house in Myrtle Beach, he expects to spend it throwing parties on the beach and finding hot girls to hook up with. The last thing on his mind is finding a girl who’ll make him re-think everything.

Ashlynn Myers, along with a few sorority sisters, is heading to Myrtle Beach for four weeks of fun in the sun. The last thing she expects is to meet a guy while on vacation who will make her fall fast and hard before she even knows what hit her. When she meets Chase the chemistry between them is undeniable. The thing about summer and summer romances is that they both come with expiration dates. After summer ends you have to part ways and go back to your everyday lives.

What do you do when you think you’ve found your soulmate but you’re separated by hundreds of miles? Will Ashlynn and Chase be able to walk away from their summer fling and never look back, pretending that what they had for one month over the summer was nothing more than a hot summer hook-up?

Excerpt:

Just as we’re making our way down the tall deck stairs that lead down to the driveway, we spot a group of guys climbing out of a speedboat that is now parked at a dock in front of the house next door.
“Damn. Why am I not single?” I hear Nikki mumble as we all gawk at the three guys, who are wearing nothing but board shorts and flip-flops. They all have sunglasses on and beers inside koozies in their hands as they make their way up the beach towards the two-story house to the right of ours.
I glance at their driveway and notice a yellow Suzuki crotch rocket and two other vehicles, a jacked up red Silverado, and a black Mustang convertible.
“Well, we’re single and definitely ready to mingle, right, Ashlynn?” Becca hints, elbowing me and giving me a cheeky grin. I just shake my head and let out a soft chuckle.
They are definitely easy on the eyes. All three of them are very nicely toned and tan. If I had to guess, I’d say they’re all around our age. The idea of partying with them makes this summer getaway look even better.
“They’re all hot. Do you think they had some type of interview process, ‘Only good-looking dudes allowed in this bromance’? I definitely wouldn’t kick any of them out of my bed,” I say, laughing as I press the button on my keys, unlocking the doors of my Explorer.
Just as we get about halfway down the stairs, the group of guys, who are laughing at something tall, tanned, and extremely good-looking just said, spot us four dorks staring at them. I think we all need a bib to catch the drool that’s dribbling down our chins right now.
They all flash us mega-watt smiles that sparkle in the slowly setting sunlight. This time of year, it stays daylight out until almost nine-thirty at night, so we have one more hour until the sky turns dark and the board walk of Myrtle Beach lights up.
We all squeal and scurry down the stairs to my car just as the guys raise their hands and give us a small wave. “Welcome to Myrtle Beach, ladies!” the guy with shorter dark hair shouts across to us. The other two just wave and keep smiling. Just that alone has short circuited our brains.

*****
Cassie Forrest isn’t surprised to learn that the day she’s decided to get her life together is also the day the world ends. After all, she’s been on a self-imposed losing streak since her survivalist parents died: she’s stopped painting, broken off her engagement to Adrian and dated a real jerk. Rectifying her mistakes has to wait, however, because Cassie and her friends have just enough time to escape Brooklyn for her parents’ cabin before Bornavirus LX turns them into zombies, too.

This is difficult enough, but Cassie’s tag along ex-boyfriend and her friend’s bratty sister have a knack for making everything, even the apocalypse, more unpleasant. When the two attract a threat as deadly as the undead to their safe haven, Cassie’s forced to see how far she’ll go to protect those she loves. And it’s a lot farther than she’d anticipated. This, coupled with Adrian’s distant voice on Safe Zone Radio and, of course, the living dead, threaten to put Cassie right back into the funk she just dragged herself out of.

Survival’s great and all, especially when you have leather armor, good friends and home-brewed beer, but there’s something Cassie must do besides survive: tell Adrian she still loves him. And to do that, Cassie has to find faith that she’s stronger than she thinks, she’s still a crack shot and true love never dies.
