She wasn’t a white dress type of girl…
Hellen Moynihan didn’t have dreams. She had goals. She knew who she was and what she wanted. She also knew what she didn’t. So when her long-term boyfriend didn’t make the grade, she moved on. And when her best friend’s boyfriend showed signs of being a scam artist, Hellen was on the case.
And he wasn’t a white hat type of guy…
Dustin “Hardcore” Cutler didn’t have dreams or goals. A troubled past led Core to do something irredeemable. The only thing he and the men of the Resurrection MC could do was vow to live their lives making up for an unforgiveable act.

At first, Core finds this dynamo of a woman intriguing, but he’s decided she’s off-limits.

He’s a hot football star and a sexy-as-sin single dad. Zac Ledger is everything I never knew I wanted.
A prince on a white horse swooping in to save the day…
Isn’t that every girl’s dream? Maybe for some, but I’ve never expected to find my own happily ever after.
I’ve made one bad dating choice after another, and it doesn’t help that my only example of marriage is my dad leaving my mother before I was even born.
I’ll never be a believer in fairy tales.
So, imagine my surprise when I meet Zac Ledger at my sister’s wedding.
He is the total opposite of my usual type: gorgeous, confident, and genuine.
He’s also athletic, and I am so not.
They call him the GOAT in the NFL…and I didn’t even know what either acronym meant until my sister told me.
But there’s something about him.
And I’m ready to believe that there are actually good guys out there.
That is, until I overhear him on the phone and I realize he’s just like every other jerk I’ve dated.
When he hires me as his interior designer to come work on his new house, I resist, but he’s persistent.
My goal is to finish the job and keep him at a distance.
But I’m not prepared for the real Zac Ledger or the way he dotes on his adorable little girl.
And when the renovation dust begins to settle, I realize there is more to Zac than his NFL accolades, and maybe, just maybe, he will prove to be the one man in my life that chooses to stick around.

Sterling is the perfect guy—handsome, with a heart of gold and a protective streak. I know he’ll do anything for me… except maybe admit he feels the same way I do.

From the New York Times bestselling author of the Loving on the Edge and the Say Everything series comes a new steamy standalone MMF romance that proves good girls can have fun too…especially when she’s their good girl.
O’Neal Lory has been taught that one mistake can undo an entire life of right decisions. That it doesn’t matter if a person has been good ninety-nine percent of the time. One misstep, one snap judgment, can derail everything. So, she’s taken a lot of right steps on the straight and narrow path. Eighteen years of them, in fact. Perfect grades. No rules broken. And definitely no boys.
Until she kisses him.
Auden Blake knows he shouldn’t touch his little sister’s best friend, knows that innocent girls like her should stay far, far away from him and his roommate Lennox—especially when she could reveal their behind-closed-doors activities to his family. But when sheltered O’Neal goes rogue, ditching her scholarship to a conservative all-girls college and showing up at Bennette State—his school—instead, it’s going to take everything Auden has to keep his and Lennox’s hands off the curious good girl whose teach me vibes could unravel them both.
Good Girl Fail is a full-length standalone MMF romance with lots of steam, two heroes who like to share and get a little bossy, and a good girl heroine who’s about to break every rule that’s ever been placed upon her.
