Found Love in a Rider by Monica Walters
Malachi Henderson isn’t a stranger to hard work or the country. However, trying to get his life on track from his self-destructive past has taken time. Finally embarking upon what he really wants in the rodeo arena while receiving help from the best to do it, he realizes some things in his love life have to change as well. In the midst of those changes, he meets the woman that he feels he’s supposed to do life with. Before even getting to know her, he believes they are meant to be. Convincing Danica of that seems to be a slight task, though. With the help of a loving family, his career is on track, but what will it mean without someone to share it with?

However, when she meets Malachi Henderson, despite the initial attraction to him, she wonders if getting to know him would be worth her time. Wasted energy is something she has no patience to endure anymore and she wants to be sure that a relationship with him is something she can handle.
Doubt is the enemy when it comes to going for what you want. This proves to be true for Danica and Malachi when moving forward. Can Danica accept all of Malachi and his country quirks? Can Malachi stomach what he has to endure to make Danica his?

“I’m not patient with a lot of things. But for you? I’ll wait a lifetime.”
With his entire career ahead of him as the starting point guard for the Tennessee Trojans, Kage Steele is feeling on top of his game. He’s got the talent, he’s getting the attention, and most importantly, he’s raking in more than enough money to have the entire world at his fingertips. But after a Summer spent enjoying the fruits of his labor, basketball isn’t the only thing on his mind coming into his second season since he can’t seem to forget about the gorgeous sports reporter he shared a moment with back in Sin City.
Bleu Taylor is living out her childhood dreams. As the offspring of a radio personality and a professional football player, using her voice to talk sports was practically what she was born to do. But naturally, that also means coming into contact with a lot of athletes, including the slightly younger, sinfully sexy point guard out of Nashville who she’d tried to forget about after breaking her own rule of not fraternizing with active players.
From the moment they locked eyes, Kage knew Bleu was something special. From the moment they kissed, Bleu knew Kage was a problem. But when they both find themselves on separate downward spirals regarding their lives and careers, the ability to rebound from those individual events becomes a lot easier once they finally decide to stop relying on self and instead choose to turn to each other.

GREED (The Love Is Cure, Vol 1. Vices & Virtues Series Book 3) by Brookelyn Mosley
He’s a greedy genteel gentleman, and she’s a charming creative with a charitable heart. She’s forever willing to give the shirt off her back while he’s always thinking of ways to get more than he already has. They met by accident, literally, but after an unlikely agreement influences a series of events, a love they never saw coming blindsides them both.
“She was not the plan, nor was how we met. I was grateful she entered my life when she did, even if it was with a bang. At the time, the goal was simple, but the more I got to know Zoe, the more the goal became blurry. Unfortunately for us both, my plans were already in motion when we crossed paths and she was only to be a pawn in it all. In a short time, her position changed, though, and she became the queen I wanted to protect in my game. Zoe changed everything. Every single thing… including me.”
“He was not the plan. Even how we met was random as hell, but I’d be a fool to believe a higher power didn’t have a hand in it all. Our deal should’ve lasted only a day, a couple of hours actually, but you can’t stop what’s in God’s plans. Unfortunately for us both, I thought Bryant was one way, but he only ended up being a fraud. He treated me like a queen, but I was only a pawn in his greedy game. To wish I never met him would be to wish away everything that happened between us. And despite everything, I’m not sure I would change a thing… not even a little.”
Greed is a sin of desire, an inordinate want to have more than one may need. This vice deals with the obsessive pursuit of material possessions driven by the fear of scarcity. Much like pride, greed can be a gateway to other evils if the desire for excess leads to making earthly things one’s God. Can an altruist with a charitable heart shift the desires of the greedy one who has everything except for the one thing they don’t believe they need at all… love?
*This book contains sexually explicit content. GREED is a standalone and book three in the Love is Cure, Vol. 1 – Vices & Virtues series. Seven books make up this series. ENVY is next…
