Garrett: They call me the King of Dynex, architect of the company’s crown jewel: the world’s largest scientific website. Half the company loves me, the other can’t stand me—when you’ve got your sights set on bigger things, it comes with the territory. Bonus: My ice-cold reputation hides my broken heart. If Dynex pulls off its upcoming public offering, my best friend and I will be swimming in corporate stock, free to launch our own company. Now more than ever, I need to be focused. I don’t need a distraction like Jasmine Carmichael, a gorgeous consultant with honey-almond skin and a killer smile.
Jasmine: Ever had any luck with dating apps? No? Girl, same. I don’t play games. One, my travel schedule as a consultant doesn’t allow it. And two, at the first hint I’m an old-fashioned girl in search of romance, I’m ghosted. I shouldn’t be attracted to six-three of citrine-eyed, muscular, urban sophistication like Garrett Hamilton. He’s a client, and clients are definitely out of my dating pool. But something about him makes me want to ignore the rules and roll the dice. I should have remembered corporate games never end well—especially when you gamble with your heart.
Five years ago, I was the poor kid at the St. Thomas Academy, thanks to a scholarship. Sabine was the rich kid at Bessemer Bay High. I never fit in anywhere. She fit in everywhere. She gave me a chance to be something more and I blew it. Like a woman scorned, she pinned the condoms meant for us on my bulletin board. Like an idiot, my kid brother took them down so my mother wouldn’t see them. Me…I was blissfully unaware of either of their actions and after graduation at the dunes, passed out the condoms I no longer needed like they were party favors. The result? Two accidental pregnancies, that I knew about. One soured relationship. And I nearly had my ass beat. Sounds about right. Now, I was home, trying to make something of myself since nothing in my life had gone as planned, not college, not my career, and not Sabine. I didn’t mind so much about the career change, or not finishing college, but through the years my biggest regret was losing Sabine. Then the unexpected happened. Sabine and I crossed paths again. And if I had my way, we’d be walking the same path forever. I was smarter, stronger, and more confident now. I could handle whatever came my way, even if the next accidental pregnancy was on me.
Mika and Robert have an intense rivalry whenever they’re in the same room. Yet they heat up the sheets in the bedroom! Can a desire they can’t deny lead to a lasting romance?
Who’s playing to win in this game of love!
Their best friends may be married, but no law said they have to like each other.
Mika lives the saying “carefree black girl” to the fullest. She has a solid interesting career, good friends, and money to do whatever she wants! What she doesn’t have is a man of her own. Even so, she’s not so desperate that she’ll fall for Robert Lorde. While he may be tall, dark, and handsome, he’s way too arrogant and boring to be her type.
Robert likes his life to be predictable. While others see that as boring, he counts his blessings for the stability. As a financial investor, the last thing he needs is whirlwind Mika Harrison tearing through his life. Yet even his practical mind can’t deny the chemistry they have. Will a little fun with her leave him with a headache…or heartache? (Read the full blurb on Amazon)
I only showed up to crash my best friend’s sister’s wedding. So how did I become the groom?! Oops! When I charged up those courthouse steps to stop Sera’s wedding, I didn’t exactly have a plan. But there’s no way I was letting my best friend’s little sister marry some no-good tool who doesn’t deserve her. Let’s just say things got out of control. Fast. Now, the wedding is off. And Sera is crushed. And I’m just trying to be a good friend. “Come stay at my place. Until you’re back on your feet.” “Have some tequila. It’ll ease the pain.” “And what’s a few much-needed orgasms between friends?” Well, maybe I crossed the line with that last one. Oh, but it gets worse… Because we just woke up naked and hungover. And Sera’s wearing a big, ugly diamond ring. On second thought, “oops!” might be an understatement. I mean–I’m Jason Bellino. Confirmed bachelor. Pro football’s ultimate playboy…I don’t do relationships. And she’s my complete opposite. A good girl. A rule-follower. The Sweetheart of Sin Valley…She doesn’t do no-strings-attached flings. Talk about ‘opposites attract’. Now, we’ve got this whole accidental marriage situation going on. Hot damn. I’m completely in over my head. But married life isn’t half-bad, I guess. I could get used to the wall-shaking orgasms, the laughing and bantering together over our breakfast cereal, her cheering me on at my football games. I should be trying to get rid of her. But more and more, I just want her to stay. So how do I convince my oopsie-wife to play house with me…forever?
