The Games We Play by Alexandra Warren*
Chance Washington only has a few things on his mind when he embarks on a trip back to his hometown. Completing the assignment for work that’s sending him there in the first place, helping his mom make progress on her fixer-upper home, and catching up with some of his best friends who he doesn’t get to see often enough. What is not a part of those plans is hooking up with one of his best friend’s little sister. But it doesn’t take long for him to realize that just because you walk into a game with a strategy, doesn’t always mean things are going to go as planned.
Londyn Miller isn’t looking for a relationship; a casual fling more her thing after blowing through the limited dating options in her hometown. But when a handsome – familiar – face returns to town for an extended stay, the decision to pursue him for a little fun is an easy one; as long as she’s sure not to let that fun turn into real feelings while also managing to keep it all from her overprotective big brother.
Just like Chance, Londyn quickly learns that plans and strategy can only get you so far before you’re forced to make in-game adjustments. And when those in-game adjustments evolve into something neither expected, it becomes a race for the finish line that Chance nor Londyn saw coming…
In Due Time by B. Love*
“You and these lies. I’ve never known you to be a liar until you started fighting your feelings for me. You’ll be mine in due time, Mackenzie. In due time.” – Rahim Frank
They met ten years earlier, and she was approached by someone else. Out of a need to keep her close, Rahim settled for friendship with Mackenzie even though he’s always wanted more. After a New Year’s Eve kiss takes things to a deeper level, Rahim is determined to claim Mackenzie… even if she’s his biggest obstacle to overcome.
Broken Clocks by Danielle Allen*
According to my grandma, a broken clock being right twice a day meant that in any given situation, perfect timing only happens twice.
I fell for William Grayson in a matter of minutes. The connection between us was undeniable, but our timing was off. I was dating someone and by the time I was single again, he was taken. And a year later, when we finally got together, it was clear that we were soulmates. But circumstances out of our control cut our time short.
We were a little older, a little wiser, when our paths crossed again. I was entering a new phase of independence in both my career and my life. He was growing professionally and moving to a new city. And even though our timing was off, it was still clear that we were soulmates. But for the second time, circumstances out of our control cut our time short.
My grandma was a wise woman, but my love life taught me that there’s no such thing as perfect timing.
There’s just timing… Because nothing is perfect.
There’s just right now… Because tomorrow isn’t promised.
For as long as we’d known each other, William and I just wanted to be together. It was as simple and as complicated as that.

All I Need Is Patience (Harris Family Values Book 1) by Kyra Gates
Justin’s mind was made up and he was sick and tired of his father trying to live out his life through him. He’d had it and wanted out! He had his own goals and dreams and only wanted his father’s respect and approval. Justin’s dream was to take over his cousins’ record label, it was what he’d dreamt of since he was a teenager. Dear ole dad had other plans, none of which included music. He never cared that music was Justin’s passion and spent years letting him know as such.
If he couldn’t have the approval of his father he’d out him for the type of man he was; a selfish, uncaring, bastard that wanted things his way or else.
But one look at the gorgeous waitress in a small town in Ohio had derailed those plans. She was none like any other woman he’d ever met and knew that she was special if even in an annoying, pestering kind of way. She wasn’t a socialite and had no idea of his family status or even that he was his own self-made millionaire. She wasn’t looking for the next meal ticket but would his status keep them apart?
Patience was simple small-town girl who wanted three things out of life, to see her mother happy, her brother to get his life together, and her own little piece of happiness. She didn’t ask for much, didn’t believe in fairy-tales and certainly didn’t expect to fall in love with the mysterious gorgeous new guy at work. But she was falling hard and fast. The electric current sweeping through her had her mind short-circuiting whenever they came within ten feet of each other. Would his secrets tear them apart? Or would she be strong and confident enough to live life right by his side.

Man of Her Dreams: A Standalone, Happily Ever After Romance by Tina Martin
A Standalone, Happily Ever After Romance
I’m one of those shy, introverted types, but my dream man is the exact opposite. He’s outgoing. Straightforward. A businessman. But he’s just a ‘dream man’ because I know he’s not attainable. Not real. Just a product of thoughts on my pillow at night. But that all changes when I lay eyes on the exact man I want.
Trevor Myerson is the man of my dreams.
He’s one of those guys who has the whole package. One that you’d be shocked to learn is SINGLE. His interest in me is surprising since, in the words of my bestie, Priscilla, I’m boring and drab (yeah, she really said I was ‘drab’, whatever the freak that means…). But Trevor likes me. Don’t know why, but he does. He says we’re friends and he wants to ‘draw me out’. Have me try new things. I’m cool with it, but it would be nice if he was more than just a friend. I wanted the man of my dreams to actually be ‘my’ man.
When I finally get my chance, it all comes dwindling down just as easily as dreams end when you wake up. But I can’t deny my need for him. I long for him. And dreaming about him just will no longer suffice.
