Give your heart to the town’s biggest player. Just don’t be surprised when he breaks it.

When I first met Maddox Renner, he was a pint-sized trailer park kid who barely noticed my existence. If I were smarter, I would have kept it that way.

Almost a decade later, and the king of Claremont High does more than just see me—he gets his kicks playing games with my head, while I lie to myself I don’t live for it.

The guy’s a player. Claremont’s resident bad boy, complete with the arrogant smirk, ripped body and brooding good looks that render smart girls stupid.

I vow to myself I’ll never be one of them.

I shouldn’t want his eyes on me. Shouldn’t crave his touch. And the last thing I should ever do is fool myself into thinking I could tame his heart.

But when the pull between us becomes impossible to resist and I find myself skirting closer and closer to the edge of insanity… it takes just one reckless kiss to tip me over.

I knew the moment I looked into those wounded brown eyes all those years ago that if I ever let myself fall for Reno it would end in disaster.

Too bad I already did.



Guys like Leon Bradshaw can’t be trusted—a fact I’m not about to let myself forget. Blonde hair, blue eyes, packed body, Claremont High royalty… you know the type. There’s never been any love lost between Leon and I—Pretty Boy with no substance isn’t my type. And between the horde of cheerleaders and his obsession with my best friend, I’m certain I’m not his either. But when fate delivers a crushing blow, and my world falls out from underneath me, Leon’s there acting like he gives a damn, holding my broken pieces together, and forcing me to look at him in a different light. It’s all an act, I know it is. I just need to make sure it’s one I don’t fall for.

Nothing about Alissa Bedford is ever easy. That might be what I like most about her. Picture a Victoria’s Secret Angel with a sleek halo of white blonde hair. Then replace her heart with a slab of stone cold ice, and you’ll have our resident Snow Queen. The girl despises me—snap off my balls and feed them to me through a straw type hate. But what if that frosty exterior is only surface deep? When she lets me close enough, I can almost make out the vulnerable girl beneath the wafer-thin veneer. What if Lissa wants to keep everyone out because her heart isn’t quite as indestructible as she makes out? And what if I want more than just to make the ice princess melt? What if I want to make her mine?


Moving in with my mom’s new boyfriend? Not my decision. Starting senior year as the new girl? Not my choice. Falling headfirst in lust with the first guy I set eyes on in Claremont? Not even an option. Why? Because the first time we meet, he’s walking out of the bedroom opposite mine…

My life back in Florida was perfect; steady boyfriend, lifelong friends, and a future mapped out with military precision. Then fate stepped in and took a sledgehammer to it.

Jason Connolly saunters through the wreckage of my life in all his bone-melting-smiled, ripped-bodied glory, full of misplaced resentment and riling me like no one else ever has.

He’s determined to hate me; I’m determined to act like I don’t care. But buried somewhere beneath all that animosity is an attraction neither one of us can deny.

A relationship between us is forbidden, and I’ve spent my entire life following the rules. But when it comes to my stepbrother—his heated looks and lingering touches—is it only a matter of time before I break them?


A no-strings hookup with a sexy stranger in a bar. Every guy’s fantasy, right? Or, it was…

Two months into my sophomore year at Lakeview U and my only real worry is getting my lazy ass to class on time.

Knocking someone up five minutes after we met was not part of the college experience I had in mind. But thanks to a pair of sad amber eyes and a shoddy piece of latex, I just became another statistic.

With two words, Nova Daniels throws a big-ass wrench in my carefree student existence. With one follow-up sentence, she offers me an out I’d be an idiot to refuse. In theory, it’s a no brainer: don’t walk goddammit… run.

But the reality of abandoning my unborn kid is far from the cake walk I expected. And staying away from the woman carrying it? Damn near impossible.

Planned or not, I’m going to be a dad.

The only question now… can I figure out how?


One drink. One night. One ex-boyfriend… and then we go our separate ways. Simple, right?
Not if fate has anything to do with it.

Matthew Davidson stole my heart long before it occurred to me it was something I could lose. I loved him with a passion that consumed me, terrified me… destroyed me.

Believing I was over him was my first mistake. Agreeing to his offer of an innocent drink six years after our relationship crashed and burned was my second.

But how much could one night hurt?

Well, a lot more than I’d bargained for.

When Matt shows up at my sister’s wedding a few months later, I’m faced with the prospect of telling him our one-night reunion had lifelong consequences. And then I need to figure out how to let him back into my life without allowing him into my heart.
