I'm good in a boardroom, but I’m better in the bedroom. Much better. I can charm the skirt off any woman in one encounter. I'll even give her an orgasm before I put her in a cab. Or three. No more or she’ll start making plans for the future and I'm not into that.
Or I wasn’t until Genevive Fasbender. She's the first woman in five years that I want to spend the whole night with. And she's the first woman who’s told me I'm not what she wants in a lover, even after multiple O’s. She’s brash and bold and stubborn as hell, and she doesn’t believe it’s possible to satisfy her.
But I’m up for the challenge.
And after an incident in my brother’s office closet—a downright dirty incident—I think I’m just the guy to deliver.
Genevive Fasbender will never know what’s coming.
Cabrina Barnes has had to fight to survive. From as far back as she can remember her father and brother have been abusive and cruel. When her mother died, she fled the home where she grew up. She learned self-defense and carries a weapon for protection. While she won't let a man get too close, she dreams of something more. A real family feels like an impossible dream. Then she meets Jamie.
Jamie Westgate feels a little jealous of his best friend. Keon has found love and a family, but Jamie is still alone. He's got money and success, but it means nothing without someone to share it with. From the first day he meets Cabrina, Jamie loves her.
Everyone thinks Jamie's crazy, especially because Cabrina is clumsy, ignorant, and blunt as hell. The day they meet, Cabrina pulls a gun on him. He doesn't know if she's manipulating him or if she's truly as vulnerable as she seems. Regardless of Cabrina's motives, once Jamie rescues her from danger, he won't let her go—even if she fights him all the way to the altar.
A sexy standalone novel from New York Times and international bestselling author Elle Kennedy!
Everyone says opposites attract. And they must be right, because there's no logical reason why I'm so drawn to Colin Fitzgerald. I don't usually go for tattoo-covered, video-gaming, hockey-playing nerd-jocks who think I'm flighty and superficial. His narrow view of me is the first strike against him. It doesn't help that he's buddy-buddy with my brother.
And that his best friend has a crush on me.
And that I just moved in with them.
Oh, did I not mention we're roommates?
I suppose it doesn't matter. Fitzy has made it clear he's not interested in me, even though the sparks between us are liable to burn our house down. I'm not the kind of girl who chases after a man, though, and I'm not about to start. I've got my hands full dealing with a new school, a sleazy professor, and an uncertain future. So if my sexy brooding roomie wises up and realizes what he's missing?
He knows where to find me.
I'm working off my buttons.
But I'm also giving them away.
The more I fall for Crow, the more I want him to do the things that I want. Dinners, dates, and evenings at the beach.
Everything comes at a price, and quickly the hoard of buttons I worked hard to earn are depleted.
Will this go back and forth forever? Or will someone run out of their buttons first?
Emily Peters was starting her life over with a great career in a place she'd always dreamed about. The last thing she was looking for was a man after the abuse she received from her husband.
Greyson McKenzie never thought he'd find another woman after his wife left and didn't necessarily care. He had his ranch and was surrounded by people he cared about.
Until Emily strolled into his life.
Can people find their true soulmates later in life? And can Emily get over the damage her husband had done to her self-esteem to allow Grey into her heart?
Conway Barsetti doesn't want me to be a model anymore.
He wants to keep me all to himself.
I inspire him in ways no one else does.
Now I'm living with him in his beautiful mansion, and I don't feel like a prisoner anymore. I'm free to do what I want, with some limitations. But he treats me so coldly, seeing me as an object rather than a person.
His family comes by for lunch and he tells me to stay in my room so they won't see me.
But I have a better idea. I'll make them believe I'm his girlfriend, that we live together and we're in love. Unless he treats me better, I'll tell his parents and sister what our arrangement really is.
And humiliate him.
I've decided to keep her.
I paid for her, after all.
I should feel guilty for the decision I've made, but why should I? She prefers me to her previous master anyway.
And it's not like my father didn't do the same thing when he was my age.
I'm rich, powerful, and untouchable.
I'm a Barsetti, and I can do whatever I please.
