The Only One by A.C. Taylor
“No matter how much distance you try to put between us, I’ll always want you. That’s never going to change.” –Jayce
Falling for Jayce Savoy was never a part of Keesa’s plan. But after living in the same apartment building, becoming friends, and slipping into each other’s beds, there wasn’t much that could be done to stop it. From day one, he was for her, and she was for him. Well…until he wasn’t.
Jayce knew he never should’ve let Keesa walk out of his life without putting up a fight. Before she left town, she poured her heart out to him, and she wanted him to do the same. But instead of him telling her how he truly felt, he played it cool and made her believe that she wasn’t the one for him. From that moment on, everything between them changed. The bond they once shared was broken, and the division within their friend group became clear.
Three years later, Keesa’s back in town, and she’s living right across the hall. Jayce can’t help but believe that fate is giving them a second chance. But past hurts aren’t easy to get over. Especially when old habits return, and new habits are determined to keep making an appearance. Can Jayce convince Keesa to finally forgive him for stomping on her heart? Or will she decide that the pain still stings, and she can’t risk making the same mistake twice?
Lyric (The Eisenberg Effect Book 2) by Grey Huffington
She’s a gem.
And on an entirely different level than the women I’m accustomed to.
She’s loyal and about her paper. That’s why I’d sacrifice the only friendships I’d ever known, wait for however long it took her to be ready, and happily sever ties with anyone who didn’t agree with or was against our union. Because the little spoiled brat that I once considered off-limits had given me a taste of her forbidden fruit and there was nothing I’d stop at to maintain the privilege of burying my seeds in her garden.
He’s a friend.
And doesn’t mind risking it all for me.
The truth is, I just can’t get enough of him. From his jet-black skin to his uncompromisingly addictive smile, he has me in a chokehold. However, our union isn’t as simple as we wish it was. That’s why I can’t see myself breaking my brothers’ hearts, destroying our family’s dynamic, or disappointing the man that means the most to me to be with him. I’d already cost him enough pain and suffering for the sake of love. I couldn’t bring myself to do it again.
Sinful Desire: A Sensual Dark Mafia Romance (Mafia Misfits Book 4) by Asia Monique

She was the type of woman you stayed away from, the kind meant to wed the head of a family.
I wanted her.
I wanted to possess her.
Most of all, I wanted to love her.
Cian O’Sullivan reminded me of everything I am—possessive and needy.
He was the type of man you wrapped your arms around and never let go of, the kind meant to dominate you inside and out.
I wanted him.
I wanted to be possessed by him.
Controlled by him.
Most of all, I wanted to love him.
