My brother's best friend...And I want him to be my lover. From the first time I meet Leo Montgomery, I know that I'm in trouble. His dark, heated gaze skittering down my body sets my skin on fire. A rare sighting of his elusive, heart-stopping smile and—dear lord—I think I just ovulated. But then, he hires me to babysit his adorable little troublemaker after school and now my maternal instincts are working overtime. It was never supposed to be more than a harmless crush on my older brother's best friend. But (accidentally) showing him my enormous, red granny panties was probably my first mistake. (Apparently, he's into that sort of thing.) BOOK 2: PLAY BOY He's my best friend. He's a player...And now, he wants me in his bed Charlie Hartley is the thing that addictions are made of. Brash and unapologetic, tattooed and insanely handsome. I've become really good at keeping him in the friend zone, though. But when he offers to escort me to my 83-year-old grandmother's wedding, I start seeing him in a new light. Maybe there's more to him than that smoking hot body and those playful, flirtatious eyes. Now, we're growing closer, crossing lines, shattering boundaries. I've strutted out of the friend zone and straight into his bed. One drunken night of hot sex won't change our friendship...Will it? BOOK 3: BAD BOY A good girl. A bad boy. Business and pleasure collide. I can't stand Clinton Alvarez. My life was impeccably organized...until he rolled into town with his bad manners, his short temper and his cocky smirk. Now, he's opened up his grungy barbershop right next door to my pristine cupcake shop, bringing along his clientele of leather-loving motorcycle guys with broken noses. He's infuriating. Having him around brings out the worst in me. Except now, the only thing I hate more than Clinton himself is the fact that I'm starting to fall head over heels for him. BOOK 4: HOT BOY Save a fire truck. Ride a firefighter. Isn't that what they say? Ben Riggs says he loves me. He says he hasn't stopped thinking about me since he broke my heart and chased me out of town all those years ago... I say liar liar pants on fire. And boy, do those bright yellow, flame-resistant fireman pants look good on him. But I'm fighting like hell against the inferno of lust and nostalgia closing in on us. And it's a fight I can't afford to lose... BOOK 5: RICH BOY He's too suave. He has too much swagger. And an ego of royal proportions. I probably didn’t make a great first impression. Rushing through his apartment door--practically naked aside from the plastic shower cap on my head--and charging for his bathroom as if my skin was on fire. Yes, that's the story of how I met my new landlord… But Xavier George Andrew Henry Cambridge is more than just the guy who swings by on the 1st of the month to collect the rent. He's a real-life prince. Second in line to the throne of a country no one's ever heard of. Hiding out in this middle-of-nowhere small town to avoid his princely duties. And I can't help myself. I'm falling for him. BOOK 6: DREAM BOY A jilted bride.
