Synopsis

Adam, Hunter, and Free have a lot in common, like geeky passions and not exactly great track records when it comes to dating. But a New Year's Eve bash will bring everything they've ever wanted--and so much more . . .

His Work Of Art

Adam Hayes has never met a girl like Reese. She's sassy, smart, and loves talking comics, although he can't see why she'd choose DC over Marvel. He's thrilled to finally put his artistic chops to use in their upcoming comic project. But when the two combine forces, they churn out magic in more ways than they had planned . . .

His New Jam

There's something unusual about the sarcastic percussionist Hunter Reed hired for his band. For one thing, she's impervious to his advances. But when Hunter sees how passionate Sydney is behind the drums, he orchestrates a plan to find out if she kisses like she plays. What he doesn't anticipate is falling so hard . . .

His Dream Role

Free Mitchell loves the theater. When he's masquerading as Dr. Who or Sherlock Holmes, he feels he can escape his shy, dorky persona. But nothing's prepared him to play boyfriend to a gorgeous girl like Samantha Wolf. The more time they spend together, the more they seem to be going off the script, and the hotter everything gets . . .

Teaser: Excerpt

From Epilogue


     Reese didn’t wait for him to reach her. She ran and jumped into his arms, yelling, “Guesswhatguesswhatguesswhat?”
     Adam held her close and for a split second she almost forgot her original excitement. He tended to have that effect on her.
     “What?”
     “An editor stopped by our table and picked up a copy. He stood right in front of me and read it. Then he started asking all kinds of questions about how many copies had been distributed and stuff. Thank God Julie had all of that written down for me. Then he said he’s interested in publishing it!” She squeezed Adam and whispered in his ear, “Can you believe it?”
     “Wow.”
     That was his response? Adam was always a little stoic and reserved, but really? She released him and took a step back. She caught him looking at Hunter. She turned and faced Hunter.
     He shrugged. “Congrats!” He hugged her quickly and grabbed Sydney’s hand. “We’re gonna take a look around.”
     With a tip of his Indiana Jones hat, they were gone in the sea of people.
     “What’s going on?” Reese asked.
     “Nothing. I mean, it’s a lot to take in.”
     Reese studied his eyes. She loved his face, but his eyes told his story. Always. Something was wrong, and in usual Adam fashion, he wasn’t talking. She took another step back and thought maybe he was freaking out about her extreme display of affection in a crowd. Although he’d gotten better over the months, sometimes he still shied away from touching her in public.
     She felt her shoulders droop. If there was ever a place they would be accepted as a couple it would be here among all the freaks and geeks. “No one is looking at us.” She glanced around and then added, “Okay, maybe the Klingon over there was a little interested.”
     He smiled, which was what she’d been going for. “I don’t care if people stare.”
     “Liar.”
     “I don’t care if they stare because they think we need a room. I care if they stare because they don’t think we belong together. But I’m not afraid to be seen with you.”
     As if to prove his point, he tugged her close and lowered his mouth to hers. She loved it when he made the first move, finally sure of himself. With an arm wrapped around her waist, his tongue slid into her mouth, tickling and teasing.
     He made it clear to everyone in the aisle that he loved her and they were together. Just when she thought she couldn’t love him more. But then . . .
     Her heart sped up and it was no longer from the kiss they’d shared. She jerked back. “If you’re not worried about how people look at us and you’re willing to lay a kiss on me like that, then what’s wrong?”
     “Nothing.”
     “God, Adam, please don’t lie to me. You suck at it.”
     He blew out a deep breath and looked around. At the table. At the wall. At the cosplayers walking by. Anywhere but at her face.
     “Seriously?” The word came out almost as a yell. She was going to lose her temper, and she didn’t want that to happen here. “Fine.” She grabbed a stack of booklets and walked away.

Her Best Shot [1]

With college graduation looming, three childhood friends vow to make spring break their last blast of pure fun. But at least one of them didn't count on such incredible heat...

Layla Sharpe is definitely more math ninja than bikini babe, and her future has been calculated with razor precision. Convinced to let loose over spring break, Layla is finally ready to party--until her car breaks down halfway to her destination, leaving her stranded in Georgia with a mouthwateringly hot pool shark. She knows more than enough about angles to learn the game, but this week she wants him to appreciate her curves...

Phin Marks has never met a girl like Layla. She's more Star Wars geek than seductress, and when he offers her a place to stay while her car is in the shop, he's counting on the attraction between them to set the nights ablaze, no strings attached. But every moment he spends with Layla makes it harder to let her go. Can he persuade her to gamble in the most dangerous way possible...on forever?

Her Perfect Game [2]

Spring break is supposed to be a week of fun in the sun for three childhood friends about to graduate from college. But one of them is ready to get her game on somewhere else. . .

Charlie Castle is an expert archer and a fierce warrior--in her favorite video game, anyway. But college life was a program she couldn't quite master. To land a cybertech job without a degree, she's entering a "hackfest" over spring break--where she also hopes to meet the sweet gamer who's been flirting with her online. Instead, she runs into the hot guy who walked away years ago, and can't fight the desire that comes rushing back.

Jonah Best has never gotten over Charlie, whose kisses were always as deliciously creative as her coding. But now that they're face to face again, he doesn't know how to admit that her online admirer is really him--or how to convince her that he's offering her a job for her incredible skills, not her sex appeal. Can Jonah cut through their communication glitches and persuade Charlie that the next level up for them should be forever?

Her Winning Formula [3]

Spring break was supposed to be a last blast of fun for three friends before the reality of adulthood set in. But for the trio's science whiz, it's an education in instant attraction. . .

Chemistry major Felicity Stone can tell you everything about the way chemicals interact, but when it comes to social interaction, she needs schooling. Abandoned by her friends, Felicity is faced with spending spring break alone--unless she accepts a gorgeous stranger's invitation to pose as his girlfriend at a family wedding. Not one to turn down a research opportunity, Felicity never expected it to produce such breathtaking results. . .

Teacher and baseball coach Lucas Tanner is fascinated by Felicity's potent mix of spirit and scientist, not to mention her delicious curves. When Felicity asks him to return the favor by teaching her how to pick up guys, he can't refuse--but he's not at all happy with the idea of her using a formula for flirting on anyone but him. Can he convince her that together they have the perfect chemistry?

His New Jam [5]

Sydney Peters can’t wait to finally drop the cymbals in marching band and devote time to her true love: drums.

But when Hunter offers her a paid gig as a drummer in his band, Sydney quickly changes her tune. The two favor different styles, but they make beautiful music together…in more ways than one.

Hunter is fascinated by Sydney’s distant allure. He might be a ladies’ man on campus, but the sarcastic cymbalist is impervious to his advances. When Hunter sees how passionate Sydney is behind the drums, he orchestrates a plan to find out if she kisses like she plays. What he doesn’t anticipate, however, is falling so hard. But will the repercussions of his past crash down on his chance at something real?

His Dream Role [6]


Free Mitchell loves the theater. In his dreams he's the one taking the spotlight. But so far he's played against character by following in his father's footsteps as an investment banker. When he's masquerading as Dr. Who or Sherlock Holmes to help his brother, he feels he can escape his shy, dorky persona. But nothing's prepared him to play boyfriend to a gorgeous girl like Samantha Wolf.

Samantha isn't quite sure what to think of Free. He's cute, sweet, and quirky, but his outlandish costumes make him seem crazy. However, it turns out Sam has a soft spot for theater nerds. And the more time they spend together, the more their steamy romance begins to take center stage. Only problem is, there doesn't seem to be a script. And it's anyone's guess how this one will end.
