Sexy, charming football players and the feisty and fantastic women they fall for!


(Ballers and Babes Book 1)

When the hot young quarterback desperately needs a fake girlfriend he turns to his best friend’s sister in this addictive revamp of #1 NYT Bestseller Lauren Blakely’s first sports romance!

Sometimes the woman for you is the one who’s been by your side all along…

When I enter the Most Valuable Playboy charity auction, my goal is simple – be the player who goes for the most dough. But when trouble shows up at the auction, I need a whole new play.

Enter Violet – she’s my best friend’s sister and she’s my close friend too. With a smile as sweet as cherry pie and a mind that runs quicker than the 40-yard-dash, Violet saves the day with the highest bid. I don’t even give her a two-minute warning before I kiss her in front of the whole crowd and then announce that she’s my girlfriend.

Which would be fine except my agent tells me we’ve got to keep up the act while he’s negotiating my contract. Violet takes one for the team and pretends to be mine, and soon our boyfriend-girlfriend scrimmage quickly turns into a full contact sport.

But falling for her wasn’t in the playbook…

When the star receiver needs to rehab his rep, he turns to the only woman who can help… but fighting their desires is the toughest play of all. An addictive revamp of #1 NYT Bestseller Lauren Blakely’s popular sports romance!

I’ve been daydreaming about the off-limits player for years, and resisting him just got harder… 

As the team’s publicist, I desperately need a football player to be the face of our charity calendar. Turns out our one-time party boy receiver Jones Beckett needs a savvy PR woman to manage his new good guy rep.

Sounds like a simple give and take, even though I’ll be traveling around the country, snapping pictures of the sexy athlete holding rescue kittens and puppies. Still, I’m dedicated to my job, so I’ll stick to my iron-clad rule — don’t date a player. And never ever fall for one. No matter how charming, big-hearted and devilishly clever the man is.

Once I start spending my off-season days and nights with Jones, I’m following a brand new playbook, one that has me falling hard for the incorrigible flirt — heart, body and mind.

But my job is at stake, and I can’t afford to lose that as well as my heart.


(Ballers and Babes Book 3)

A sexy standalone second chance romance between a single dad athlete and the woman who got away!

Things that suck on my wedding day — walking in on my groom kissing another woman twenty minutes before the ceremony.

Things that suck worse? The woman he’s kissing is my mom.

I head straight for the bowling alley bar down the street and ask for a double. And in walks a deliciously charming local football hero — Harlan Taylor.

Yes, I’ll take another drink in the form of a one-night stand with this hunk of a man. In the morning, he asks if I want to get together again. More rebound nookie? Yes please!

But then I learn his football team just hired my yoga studio to teach downward facing dog to their star player, making my O-delivering hottie officially off limits.

Trouble is, the more time I spend working with the sexy single dad who dotes on his daughter, the more I’m feeling all the things far too soon.

There’s no way this can end well, but tell that to my runaway heart…

A Wild Card Kiss is a sexy, flirty sports romance featuring a charming, pie-baking, single dad who’s never forgotten the red-hot kiss he planted on the feisty, sassy blonde one night years ago and a jilted bride heroine determined to move on from heartbreak. This story contains sexy times that can cure getting-left-at-the-altar blues, and heart-tugging swoony romance that’ll melt the most jaded hearts.


(Ballers and Babes Book 4)

What I should do as the new quarterback in Los Angeles: Win games.

What I shouldn’t do: Try to win over the sexy, sassy, fiery woman who works in the VP suite for the team.

I don’t always follow the good guy rules though, especially when I want to take her home. Then up against the wall. Then, out to breakfast the next morning.

Maybe I can get away with a secret tryst for a few late-night plays.

But when the team management discovers what we’re up to, I can’t believe what they ask us to do.

Contents include: sex hacks, text snafus, bedroom dares, major league dirty talking, and twists you won’t see coming in this sexy sports romance.


(Ballers and Babes Book 5)

I’m not the type of guy to fake date so when my engagement blows up spectacularly, I have no choice but to un-date my best friend’s sister. For real.

Sounds nutty, right?

But a deal’s a deal, and I signed on to be the face of a dating app – the pro football player who found true love with a swipe. Then my former fiancée ran away to join the circus with the trapeze artist, leaving me holding the bag on this contract – go on five super romantic dates and share them online.

I’d like to take a timeout right now, but my corporate sponsor demands five hangout sessions with a gal pal to showcase the friend zone feature of the app.

Gee, that sounds like so much fun for my wounded heart and pride.

I turn to my best friend’s little sister. The sassy, smart and–fine–a little awkward, Audrey, is game to help. But after a few days of our very public display of un-dating, the most captivating woman I’ve ever known hits me up for a return favor.

One week of lessons in seduction. No strings attached.

I should say no, given our history, given our friendship, given her brother, but what’s the harm as long as no one catches feels?

And I swear it won’t be me.

It really better not be me.

Oh hell, it’s me.
