My brother’s teammates know not to touch me—but that doesn’t stop me from daring Jaxson Brittain to be the first to break the rule.

After one steamy night in Austin, I’m all too aware of the hot, broody defenseman with icy blue eyes and ink sprawling his muscular arms. He was the one my brother assigned to keep me safe—and I had far too much fun tempting him to be the one to put me in danger.

It was just one night of tip-toeing the line, of teasing and flirting and messing around knowing nothing would ever come of it.

But when the universe throws me back into his lap two weeks later and we end up on a secret road trip together, all bets are off.

I can’t help but touch him. I can’t help but pray for him to touch me. And I can’t resist the temptation to test him at every turn.

Jaxson is smart and doesn’t have a death wish. So, like a gentleman, he keeps his hands to himself… the jerk.

But the closer we get on the road and the farther we get from reality, the less those warning signs from my brother seem to deter him.

When we started this road trip, we set a boundary. We promised to keep all arms and legs safely in the friend zone.

Now, miles and miles away from all the reasons we shouldn’t, all I can hear is my heart thumping out the resounding reason we should.

And the way those heated blue eyes watch me, I know I’m not the only one.

Meet Kandi

Kandi Steiner is an Amazon Top 5 bestselling author and whiskey connoisseur living in Tampa, FL. Best known for writing “emotional rollercoaster” stories, she loves bringing flawed characters to life and writing about real, raw romance — in all its forms. No two Kandi Steiner books are the same, and if you’re a lover of angsty, emotional, and inspirational reads, she’s your gal.


An alumna of the University of Central Florida, Kandi graduated with a double major in Creative Writing and Advertising/PR with a minor in Women’s Studies. She started writing back in the 4th grade after reading the first Harry Potter installment. In 6th grade, she wrote and edited her own newspaper and distributed to her classmates. Eventually, the principal caught on and the newspaper was quickly halted, though Kandi tried fighting for her “freedom of press.” 


She took particular interest in writing romance after college, as she has always been a die hard hopeless romantic, and likes to highlight all the challenges of love as well as the triumphs.


When Kandi isn’t writing, you can find her reading books of all kinds, planning her next adventure, or pole dancing (yes, you read that right). She enjoys live music, traveling, playing with her fur babies and soaking up the sweetness of life.

Avery Keelan has revealed the gorgeous cover for Playmaker!


Releasing: December 4, 2023

Cover Designer: Andra M Designs



I know better than to fall for Gabriel Carter, notorious NHL playboy. Not only has he broken innumerable hearts during his 7 years in LA, he's my boss--even if he does have a smile that leaves me weak in the knees, a body built for sin, and enough charm to melt my sundress clean off.

So what if I swoon a little over the way he sings Everly to sleep every night he's not on the road? So what if he's deliciously protective and alpha-male over me whenever the paparazzi get too close? It doesn't mean anything... or does it?

I try to tell myself it's just a job, but between the stolen kisses and blurry lines, playing house with him is starting to feel a little too real.


Summer Crawford loves nothing more than putting me in my place. She's five feet, five inches of sweet southern sass-- and temptation sleeping in the bedroom next to mine.

When all the rules go out the window one night, everything changes. After knowing how explosive our chemistry is together, there's no way I can go back to pretending we're just friends.

There's one small catch: Summer is my employee. My daughter Everly's nanny. Ev needs her, which means she's completely off-limits. Or at least, she should be... but I've never been good at following the rules.

Turns out, I need Summer too. Now I'm playing for keeps--and I always win.

Something like Hate by Piper Rayne is now live! 



I love him.

I loathe him.


It’s like plucking daisy petals in my head, but he’ll never know.


When Miles Cavanaugh, the best safety in the league, was traded to the Chicago Grizzlies football team last year, I could finally breathe. Temptation was miles away.


How na├»ve to think it would end there because when the opportunity to write for a national magazine based in Chicago lands in my lap months later, I can’t turn it down. Sure, it’s a big city, but the sexual energy feels like a beacon between us the minute my plane lands. 


To make matters worse, I end up having to take over the job of reporting exclusively on the Chicago Grizzlies. Which means traveling with the team, interviewing players, and pretty much having an all-access pass to their lives during the season. 


Miles and I put up a great front, quickly hating on one another, but we both know it’s a lie. We also know the rules are simple. For me, don’t sleep with the subject of your articles. For him, don’t sleep with the journalist who can make or break your career.


I thought straight-laced Miles Cavanaugh followed all the rules… oh how wrong I was.

I was so excited for the release of this book. But I waited so patiently and then grabbed it on KU and then couldn't read it. Because I'm an idiot, obviously. I love Devney Perry’s writing and characters, but I have a thing against second chance romance. So, every time I thought about reading this, I figured I needed the right moment to be able to enjoy it without the constant “Mum” distractions. It also wasn’t an end of day read before bed book, because I knew I would end up sitting up all night to read one more chapter.


Millie and Ford were awesome and while I understood Ford’s initial choices and actions, I can’t understand why he let it go so long. And I was kind of furious with the way he went after what he wanted without any consideration for how Millie might feel about things. But then I would love how all in he was and how much he regretted the way everything happened. 


The story flowed so easily, and I really enjoyed the whole thing. There were a few moments I wanted to be annoyed with one thing or another but before I could manage it, they changed point of view, and I was looking at the other side of it. I could have done with a lot more of them together, the epilogue was cute, but it just wasn’t enough. I’m really happy that Devney decided to turn this from a stand-alone to a series and I am hoping we get Rush next but I also don’t care as long as we get it sooner than later.




I was absolutely obsessed with the Forbidden Men series. I think most of them were 5 star reads for me and I still smile like a loon whenever I remember them. But I think it's been about 10 years since I've read them, and I had no idea there were books for the next generation. And then I was in this one and it hit me like a stack of bricks. I'll be honest, I've had this on my TBR forever, but the blurb made me hesitate. I like a man who's all in and does the chasing.


Luckily for me I decided to read this anyway because that blurb feels like it's for a different book despite it being right. From the second I picked this up I was lost to my family; I couldn't put it down. I honestly forgot how completely amazing Linda Kage is. Her words, her ability to make me obsess over the characters and just be swept into this world with them.


Luke was not at all what I was expecting. Holy sweetness and perfection batman. Even though I was completely team Chloe, and I knew exactly where she was coming from, I loved Luke. And every single time he opened his mouth something stupid came out, but it was so firmly wrapped in love and care for his family. 


Luke and Chloe together were such a massive amount of emotions and I just strapped in and went along with the ride. Some of the twists and turns were predictable, others had me gasping and clutching my chest. The emotions in the last 10ish percent were actually hard for me to read. I had to keep putting the book down to clear my eyes but then I needed to keep reading so I had to pick it back up.


I finished reading this in the middle of the night and immediately went to stalk who else has a book. I love being back with these characters even if I'm a little vague on who everyone is after all this time. I just gotta hope Linda keeps on with these guys now that I've found them.

I saw her. Liked her instantly. May have slept with her twice only to… well, never mind. It gets confusing after that point.
You see, there are two of them. Identical twins.

All I wanted was a vacation from the bullshit but what I got was evil twin number one and innocent twin number two.
They say things come in threes, so help me God, if there’s another.

I’m healing from past trauma but may have created more for my future.
Anyone got any sage?
A candle?
At this point, I’d take Barney.

Send help.

Love, Quinn

Being the most talented football

player came with benefits.



Adoration of all

Women flocked to him

People wanted to be like him

So why would he have any interest

in an innocent, book nerd like me?

I owed him a favor.

“Be my girl,” he said.

“Let’s have fun,” he said.

And when the fun was over,

we would go our separate ways.

Harmless, right?

But what if it wasn’t?

Because I realized…

Axel did nothing in half measures

And whatever he wanted,

he would do everything in

his power to have it.

I just didn’t realize

he would break me in the process.

Author Bio:
Rose Croft is a wannabe poet and a writer in her own mind. She’s a wife and mom to a beautiful daughter and lives her own happily ever after.
