Will the mistakes of the past ruin their future?

As public relations coordinator for the Manhattan Marauders pro football team, Victoria “V” Price has the wealth, prestige, and glamour she only dreamed of growing up. All she’s missing is a man to share it with. V thought she gave up her shot at love when she left her childhood sweetheart in the dust of her rural Texas town, along with the painful secrets of her family life. But the past comes roaring back when Sam Fitzpatrick, the only man she ever loved, is hired as the Marauders’ new offensive coordinator.

Despite Sam’s reluctance to work alongside V, his distrust of the woman who broke his young heart is no match for their swiftly rekindling passion. Yet even as V’s tough PR persona gives way to her softer side, Sam wonders if their chemistry is enough to overcome the wounds left unhealed between them. But when the devastating truth of V’s past is exposed, threatening both her career and their second chance, Sam finds himself asking a different question: does he have what it takes to win back her love?

Another great book in Mackenzie Crowne’s Player series!  We’ve seen V be the hard-nosed sports agent previously and even seen her be a loyal friend, but we haven’t seen the softer side of her that comes out when we finally get the story of her past and what made her who she is today.  Her turmoil really touches your heart!

Victoria Price is loving her new job as the PR Coordinator for the Manhattan Marauders football team, but her newest assignment just might be end of it when it’s barely begun!

Sam Fitzpatrick is super stoked at being offered the Offensive Coordinator position for an NFL team, but the fact that the woman that cruelly broke his heart all those years ago is the one there offering it is pretty off-putting!  Can he actually bring himself to accept a job for the same team she works for?

V had her reasons for walking away from Sam all those years ago, but she never shared them with him, so he and everyone around him assumed the worst.  When she finds the strength to share her secret, will she finally be free to go for that love of her life once and for all or will it be too late to matter?

There’s no such thing as a little in love . . .

Elle Wheaton’s priorities: friends, career, and kick-ass shoes. Then there’s the muscular wall of stubbornness that’s security expert Archer Hunt—who comes before everything else. No point in telling Mr. “Feels-Free Zone” that, though. Elle will just see other men until she gets over Archer . . . which should only take a lifetime . . .

There’s no such thing as a little in lust . . .

Archer’s wanted the best for Elle ever since he sacrificed his law-enforcement career to save her. Their chemistry could start the next San Francisco earthquake and he craves her 24/7, but Archer doesn’t want to be responsible for the damage. The alternative? Watch her go out with guys who aren’t him . . .

There is such a thing as . . .

As far as Archer’s concerned, nobody is good enough for Elle. But when he sets out to prove it by sabotaging her dates, she gets mad—and things get hot as hell. Now Archer has a new mission: prove to Elle that her perfect man has been here all along . . .

With another match up of the Heartbreaker Bay gang, Jill Shalvis brings us Elle’s story!  The connection between her and Archer is not only sexy as sin, but it’s also sweet and comforting.  I really enjoy this group of friends.  They are always there for one another, and are always good for a few laughs as we see their interactions.

Elle Wheaten owes Archer Hunt a lot.  She came from a hard life, and when he chose to give up so much in order to rescue her from it, she took on the additional burden of knowing how much she had cost him.  It doesn’t stop her from constantly wanting him, but it makes her understand why he can’t possibly want her back.

Considering the circumstances when they met, Archer feels like his desire for Elle is wrong.  He’s worked hard to show indifference to her all of these years, but when he sees her starting to want more in her life, it drives him crazy to see her possibly reach for it with someone else!

Will these two stubborn people be able to put aside their pride long enough to see that the other loves them too?

The Poseidon team are hard-bodied, fiercely competitive navy SEALs. But when a sensitive mission goes disastrously wrong, three of the team's finest will have to trust their hearts and instincts to uncover the truth…

"No man left behind" is inscribed in the DNA of every SEAL and Lieutenant Diego Torres is no exception. But with a team member killed—and the body missing—Diego's honor is sorely tested. Now his career and reputation are on the line, and a traitor is hiding among them. Diego wants answers…and only one woman has them.

Single mom Harper Maclean has two priorities—raising her son Nathan and starting a new life. Her mysterious new neighbor may be impossibly charming, but Diego asks too many questions about her past—and about the father of her child. Questions she fears will reveal her burning attraction for Diego, and ultimately put them all in danger's path.

With a story filled with intrigue and passion, Tawny Weber brings us the start of a new SEAL series!  Team Poseidon is the best of the best and make for an interesting bunch of guys.  First off we are getting Diego’s story … looking forward to more!

Diego Torres has given his life to his Navy SEAL career.  He lives for his job and his teammates, so when a mission goes awry and someone is left behind, that doesn’t sit well with him!  He’s settling into a boatload of guilt when intel comes in that leads them to think there is some shady business going down.  He’s sent in to try to get some information from the only source they have.

Harper Maclean has worked hard to overcome her past and give her son a great life.  She has done it all on her own, since his so called father walked out before he was born.  When a new sexy man shows up as their new neighbor, she can’t help but be intrigued.  Can she really throw caution to the wind and actually live for herself for once?

Will Diego blow his cover when he gets too close to Harper and her son?  And when information starts to surface, will he be able to keep them safe?
