Title: Kissing My Crush
A Kissing Games Series Standalone
Author: C.A. Harms
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Tropes: Friends to Lovers/Accidental Pregnancy
Release Date: June 29, 2023



Tyler Collins has always been the object of my affection. He just doesn’t know it.
I’ve spent years admiring him, fantasizing about him, but never once making a move.
That is until I see him across the room, already a few beers in and drunkenly decide to press my lips to his. One minute I’m sharing a drink with a friend, and the next, I’m Kissing My Crush.

Now I’m trapped at a beautiful resort with the man I so desperately want to avoid, to celebrate the nuptials of our dear friends.

I can feel his eyes on me. He’s watching. Waiting for what I’m not sure. The fear of rejection is too strong for me to mention the kiss. That night is on constant replay in my mind. I often wonder how he would react if I could confess that to me, our kiss was not a drunken mistake.


Quiet, sweet Amara, the one woman I never expected to crave and the one I can’t seem to shake. One unexpected kiss, and now all I can think about is her lips pressed to mine.

I’ve managed to avoid attachments, keeping things casual and enjoying one day at a time. Yet, a timid blonde marches across a hazy bar and grabs hold of my hair, giving me the kiss that changes it all. Changes me.

She wants to pretend it never happened, but I never was much for playing games. She might want me to believe the kiss was forgettable, but we both know better. Hands down the hottest kiss of my life.

That moment with her wasn’t nothing. It was everything.
It was the turning point and the start of something I know without a doubt will be more than we both ever could have expected.

The Issue with Bad Boy Roommates by Piper Rayne is now live!



I was only looking for a roommate…

I’m the town widow.

Not the only one, but the youngest by far.

My husband died one year after our wedding, casting me as the charity case in my small Alaskan town.

Since then, everyone—including my big family—try to keep me busy as if that will stop the haunting memories from resurfacing.

Do I know it’s time to move on? Of course, but that’s easier said than done.

Then Van Adler rides into town. His bad boy vibe complete with his motorcycle and tattoos causes my body to fill with need for the first time since my husband’s death.

To make matters worse, he’s the one who answered my ad for a roommate. Sharing the close quarters of our two-bedroom apartment means I have to set some ground rules like keeping his rippled abs covered. Soon we become friends, he’s making me dinners, and we’re binge-watching television shows all night.

The more our lives intertwine, the more I start to fall for him. Leaving me wondering, can you find the love of your life twice in one lifetime?

About the Book

Normally when you say, “I have a stalker,” you think bad thoughts. That wasn’t the kind of stalker Folsom was when it came to Kobe Sano. Folsom liked to call herself a “guardian angel in disguise.”


The first time he catches her attention, he’s been assigned to hunt her down and throw away the key. All she did was steal someone else’s child. Well, embryo, that is. What Kobe doesn’t know, though, is the man that hired him is up to no good, and she has no other choice but to run without looking back.


From that moment on, she spends the rest of her spare time running away from him while also digging into every nook and cranny of his personal life, finding every weakness he has and utilizing it any way she needs to keep herself one step ahead of him.


Only one day, when she goes to do her usual snooping, she finds out that not only is her favorite person in trouble, but he’s also in need of her help.


Too bad it takes her years to find that help.


Her next step is to break him out of the pokey prison-break style.


If she knew he’d go without question, she very well might have.




It didn’t take a genius to know when someone was stalking you. The signs were all there, and they eventually pointed right at Folsom.


When he figures it out, he plans to confront her and maybe address the silent sexual tension that’s been brewing between them for the last few years.


However, right when he’s ready to admit to himself that she might be the one—daughter who intimidates the hell out of him or not—she up and disappears for a year.


In that year, he spends every waking moment searching for her.


And eventually he finds her, confronts her, and is hit in the face with the secrets she’s kept from him for years.


One of which is a big one.


The daughter that she protects with everything she has—the one that he’s come to love with all his heart, just like her mom—is the very abducted child from his one and only unsolved case.

𝒞𝒪𝐿𝐿𝐼𝒟𝐸𝒟 (𝐿𝒮𝒰 𝐵𝑜𝑜𝓀 .𝟧) by Wall Street Journal and USA Today bestselling author Becca Steele releases on July 10th! We are so excited to share these gorgeous covers with you!!! 


by Becca Steele

Release Date: July 10th 



Photographer: Michelle Lancaster, @lanefotograf


From USA Today and Wall Street Journal bestselling author Becca Steele comes a new standalone M/M college romance.


When my mother told me she was getting married, I had no idea just how much my life would change.


Her new husband does his best to make me feel welcome, but his son is a different story. Huxley Granger is rude and aggressive, and from the moment we collide, he makes it clear that he loathes me.


Then, something happens. An event that alters everything between us.


I find myself looking at him in a different way.


A way I shouldn’t be looking at the person who has been so hostile to me from the beginning. A way I shouldn’t be looking at the one person I’m not allowed to have.


Even though I tell myself to forget him, I can’t get him out of my head. And I could be wrong, but I think he might have the same problem.


I know I should stay away.


I should


But I won’t.

Collided first appeared in the Anti-Valentine anthology. This edition has been expanded and extended.

It's been a minute since I read the last book in this series, so I only vaguely remember the characters. But I did grab this on KU the second I put the other one down, I just don't know why it took me so long to pick up this one. I think my mood changed and I went looking for over the top alpha vibes and steered away from college sports for a bit.


Which after reading this book feels crazy. This did not at all feel like a college sports romance. Despite East literally having his whole world wrapped up in it, he was so completely all about Wren I forgot he was a player. And I mean that in both sense of the word. This book was hot AF, and I was blown away. First east can dirty talk, damn. Second the chemistry between them was so hot I actually had to put this down around the kids.


Wren was a great character and I loved that she didn't fall for East easily. But I love more that once she saw who East really was, she was all in and loud and proud about it. Because East gave awesome boyfriend and everything about these two together was just perfect.


Now I'm going to one click Ben's book and probably wait forever to actually read it. Toodles.




Gah this book is just further proof that my brain hates me. I pre-ordered this book as soon as I could, but then countless other books were read while I waited and when this landed on my kindle, I put off reading it. I'd forgotten the characters and the previous books, and I just kept getting distracted by other books.


Then finally I decided to read this book and I was right back with the guys and their WAGs. I remember thinking that Jade was an idiot for her plan to marry Sam and then bam in swoops Declan. And I really didn't expect that much swoon from Declan. Getting his point of view and learning about his past, he just might be my favourite wildcat.


Jade and Declan were super-hot together. But the story had so much more depth and emotion that I was expecting from a fake marriage story. Both Jade and Declan were so relatable and the fact that Declan could understand where Jade was coming from and go beyond to help made him even better. Because Jade was so used to being the independent bad bitch she has always been, and Declan managed to support that perfectly.


The book was awesome, and I am kicking myself I didn't read it a month ago when it landed. But now hopefully the next one will be that much quicker to wait for.

My biggest mistake is the best thing that ever happened to me.

She takes nothing seriously, especially not me, yet I can’t stop thinking about her. It doesn’t matter how I crave her smile or burn for her touch. D is family. He trusted me with his sister.
