Undone (Vino & Veritas #18) by Leslie McAdam My new roommate has the worst taste in men. I mean, Murph’s special. He’s funny and flamboyant and full of life. While I’m straight, even I can tell these guys aren’t good enough for him. I had to yell at one date, toss another one out the door, and throw a beer in another’s face. Kind of embarrassing, really. I don’t know what’s gotten into me. I ask my sister what’s wrong with me and she says I’m jealous. Jealous? Please. Me? Come on. Only thing is, I hate the thought of Murph kissing any guy. Ever. Except, maybe ... me? Goodreads Amazon
Clusterf*@k (Life Sucks Book 4) by Elise Faber clusterf*@k (noun) 1.A mismanaged and chaotic situation 2.A complexly muddled mess 3.A disordered and hectic condition 4.Misty Hansen’s life Lonely. Alone. By herself. The top three ways Misty had to describe herself—and it was no coincidence they all meant the same thing. She was single, almost pathetically so. It had been so long since she’d been with a man, she wasn’t sure she could even remember what it was like. Hell, dust might float out if she took off her pants in the presence of the opposite sex. She was also well aware that she was lucky to have a place to live, a great brother, and awesome friends. She should just be content. But then she crashed into Chance—literally crashed—into the gorgeous man’s SUV, totaling it, and managing to cause damage to her brother’s house, all in one fell swoop. It was a total clusterf*@k. Because then the man ended up totaling her heart. Goodreads Amazon
Off-Season by Jami Davenport Andy:
I just ended my rookie year with the Seattle Sockeyes in a win-or-go-home game, and we went home. I played a big part in that loss thanks in part to my lack of team play. It's time to lick my wounds, re-examine my role, and come to terms with demons I've been avoiding for too long. I buy an RV and take to the wilderness for a little solitude and lot of soul-searching. Just me, my dog Bones, and nature. There's one problem. My campsite neighbor is a too-cheerful, busy-body camp host. She brings out the worst in me, but I can't stop thinking about sharing a sleeping bag with her.
As a brand ambassador for a large RV manufacturer, it's my job to make sure everyone is enjoying their camping experience. Usually I'm quite good at fixing problems and assisting campers until I meet the hot, grumpy hockey player next door. He claims he wants to be left alone; but after one look at his lost expression, I'm certain that's the last thing he needs. To complicate things, we have chemistry, the kind which blazes past all misgivings and singes everyone in sight. Goodreads Amazon
Boldly (Breakers Hockey #2) by Elise Faber One second, he had everything. The next, it was torn away. Oliver James was at the peak of his career, captain of the Baltimore Breakers, minutes away from winning another Cup. Then one hit had derailed all that. All he’d ever known was hockey, and he didn’t know where he fit in a world where playing was no longer a possibility. But then he was offered a chance to bring hockey back into his life. A shot at starting over. The only condition of that second chance was required meetings with the team psychologist, Hazel. She was exactly the kind of woman he might have once lusted after—beautiful, kind, a body that screamed sex. She made him feel whole, like a man again. Except, she wasn’t interested in him outside of being a patient. Well then, Oliver would just have to convince her otherwise. Goodreads Amazon
Hard Gamble (Caldwell Brothers) by Colleen Charles She may be a modern day Cinderella – but I’m no Prince Charming. As the golden boy of Vegas, every woman wants me, and every man envies me.

But like all good stories, this one has an evil villain who wants what’s mine. If he can't steal her, he vows to turn her against me. Underestimating me is his fatal mistake.
