Roughing the Passer by Alison Hendricks
Garrett Barnes is no stranger to overcoming the odds. Forced to walk away from a Division I scholarship to take care of his family, Garrett was sure he’d never play football again. When an offer comes in from the ESC Mavericks–a school near his hometown–it seems like a dream come true. There’s only one catch: he’s expected to single-handedly save the worst team in the state.
Diego Ruiz has known his whole life that the deck is stacked against him. The harder he tries to fight it, the more it hurts when it knocks him back down. With a lifetime of disappointment to back him up, he’s stopped trying for anything more than mediocrity, both on and off the football field. If not for a promise he’d made years ago, he’d probably just be some nobody in a nowhere job.
So when Coach Ladner brings in some D1 “hero” to save the team, Diego is determined to show him exactly where hard work and perseverance get you–absolutely nowhere. Despite his best efforts, Garrett’s unwavering optimism starts to get under Diego’s skin. Caught on the verge of giving in, he relies on the one thing that’s never failed him: his ability to get curious straight boys into bed.
As the friction between them gives way to passion, the stakes of their former rivalry increase tenfold. With both men’s hearts–and a state title–on the line, there’s no time for playing games. But when Diego’s past comes back to remind him that everything eventually goes to hell, Garrett will have to convince him that some things are worth fighting for.

Out of this World by Shea Malloy
My name is Rosie Fry and I don’t believe in true love. In fact, anyone who believes in it oughta get a laser shot to the groin.

I don’t give a damn if he’s as hot as the sun’s core, or that his amber eyes of liquid fire makes me melt every time he looks my way, or even that his sizzling touch rockets me outta this world.
I may be trapped on an alien planet with him as my only companion but I will not give in.
I will not fall in love with him.

Wrecked by Sierra Riley
Roger “Beck” Beckworth grew up with a strict, homophobic father who was always changing the rules just to keep Beck on his toes, but now he’s made a well-ordered, predictable life for himself that he’s perfectly happy with.
When he finds himself waiting to take his place as a groomsman at a friend’s wedding, the last thing he expects is that the final attendant, the one who’s running late—a sure sign that the two of them will be like oil and water—will turn out to be the first man he ever loved.
“Surprises are some of my favorite things.”
Liam Hart lives on his boat, free to go wherever the wind blows him. He’s almost allergic to the idea of being tied down to any one place… or any one person. That had been different, once, but loving Roger Beckworth was half a lifetime ago, and the pain of losing him taught Liam a valuable lesson about the risk of trying to hold onto something after its time has passed.
Finding him again might just teach Liam something else altogether, though.
“You have to believe. Love will never let you down.”
When fate brings them together again, their differences seem destined to pull them apart… unless Beck can finally learn to let go, and Liam figures out that love really is worth holding onto, no matter what the cost.

Say You Want Me by Corinne Michaels
There’s no way I’ll fall for Wyatt Hennington.
He can keep his Southern drawl, irresistible smile, and those pick-up lines all to himself. I made the mistake of sleeping with him not once, but twice. I’m not stupid enough to give him round three, especially after he left me in the middle of the night so I could see myself out. I vow to return to Philadelphia and forget him.
It proves easier said than done.
When the doctor informs me I’m the winner of door prize number two, I put my life on hold and head back to Bell Buckle. Three months and if we can’t make this work, I’m gone.
The problem is—when the cards are stacked against us, and I can’t bring myself to leave him, I’ll finally know if he truly loves me or if all my fears were real . . .

Torch by Roxie Noir
Playing with fire gets you hot, but playing with a fireman gets you wet.
Fighting wildfires is dangerous as hell. If I f*ck it up I get a hundred-foot wall of flame coming at me with nowhere to run, no escape, and no rescue – but it’s still the best damn job in the world.
And women? They practically line up to slide down my pole. I never did like repeating myself.
Not since she broke my heart into a thousand pieces, anyway.
Clementine’s that ex. The one I haven’t seen in eight years. The one I thought I was going to marry until she dumped my ass while I was on active duty in Afghanistan.
The one who’s suddenly next door when my crew has a few days off in her tiny town, and who’s impossible to ignore.
She’s still hotter than any fire I’ve ever fought, still the same feisty, whip-smart, headstrong girl I fell for all those years ago.
We already went down in flames once, but I’ve never wanted anyone like I want Clementine. Not even close.
F*ck it. I need to have her again, even if it’s just one more time, and to hell with the consequences.
