LOSING US by Jen McLaughlin
When it all comes crashing down…
Everything I thought I had with Austin Murphy—safety, stability, the normalcy I crave but my celebrity lifestyle rarely allows—was ripped away in one night. I wanted to surprise him, but the joke was on me. Now I don’t know if I ever really knew him at all.
Someone has to pick up the pieces…
Mackenzie Forbes was everything I ever wanted and the one person I didn’t deserve. When a past mistake costs me the girl I love, I’ll do everything I can to get her back. We both have demanding careers and family secrets darkening our pasts, but I need Mackenzie in my future.
Sometimes everything you have to give just isn’t enough…

He closed the distance between us, his mouth touching mine again, and I finally let go of all the pain and fear. Shutting my eyes, I slipped my tongue in between his lips. He tasted as good as I remembered, like man and that unique flavor of Austin. My fingers tightened on his face, and I straddled him, groaning when his hard erection pressed against my core right where I needed him most.
“Shit, Mac, I missed you so damn much,” he breathed against my lips.
I nodded, not trusting myself to speak. Kissing him was making me feel better, but it was also making it harder in so many ways. Tears stung my eyes for what had to be the millionth time tonight, but I forced them back. Refused to let them out.
Austin’s lips hesitated under mine, as if he knew how much this was hurting me, but I deepened the kiss. His hands lowered to hold my thighs, and he dug his fingers in as he arched his hips up. Pleasure rocked through me—the kind of pleasure only he had given me—and I moaned. With trembling hands, he grabbed my shirt and hauled it over my head. I lifted my arms and broke off the kiss long enough for him to tug it over my head, and then I did the same to his.
When I grabbed his waistband and undid the button, he caught my hands with his own. “Are you sure?” he asked, those bright blue eyes of his pinning me down.
I nodded, not speaking again.
He let go of me, and I undid them, rolling them off his legs and tossing them on the floor. Standing up, I shimmied out of my pants and underwear, not wasting any time. I shrugged off my bra and stood there naked in front of him.
His dark blue eyes flashed with heat. “Come to me. Now.”
CHASING ME by Jennifer Probst
Quinn and James’ Story Continues in Chasing Me…
It was supposed to be a love story….
I knew she was out of my league but I didn’t care. Looking back, I wonder if I hadn’t pursued her, would things have turned out differently? Is it Fate that determines our choices in life? God? Free will? Or just plain old innate selfishness?
I got her, of course. There hadn’t been a girl I wasn’t able to seduce. Problem was she seduced me right back, body, mind, and soul. She possessed me, tormented me, and showed me a world that was so bright and pure I was almost blinded.
Didn’t she know after such a drug I could never settle for less? Didn’t she realize no matter how many times I screwed up, or broke her heart, or bent her to my will, I’d never be able to let her go?
If I hadn’t known such intensity existed, would it have been better for both of us?
True love, the real kind, isn’t nice and sweet and pure. No, it’s dirty, and sinful, and messy. It’s like ripping a chunk of flesh from your body and watching yourself bleed out in slow, helpless intervals until you thankfully pass out.
This isn’t a love story. But it’s the only story I got.
FINDING YOU by Jenna Bennett
Sex on the Beach, the do-over.
I had a simple plan for what to do in Key West the second time around.
Testify at the trial of the rapist I helped catch last year.
Make sure he gets locked away for the rest of his natural life, so he can never, ever hurt another girl.
Wait for my BFFs to get to town, so we can celebrate.
And stay far away from Ty Connor, because three months after breaking up with him, I still don’t know whether being with him is worse than being without him.
Spring Break, take two.
All of the above? Out the window.
Turns out testifying is a lot harder than I thought it would be.
Not only is the rapist I helped catch last year not locked away for the rest of his life, he’s on the loose and looking for me.
Oh yeah, and it’s definitely harder being without Ty than being with him, especially when I have to watch him with someone else.
Welcome to my world.
