A Guy Walks Into My Bar


A sexy, passionate, utterly addictive standalone MM romance from #1 NYT Bestseller Lauren Blakely!

Every bartender should follow one simple rule—don’t go home with the customers.
That’s been easy for me to stick to, until the night a cocky, confident, and sinfully charming hockey star walks into my bar. This sexy athlete is too hard to resist, especially when he makes it clear how much he wants the “sarcastic, witty, hot AF” guy behind the bar—also known as me.
Still, I’m not keen on breaking my own rules since I know where that can lead—no place good. But when that man makes his case with one bone-searing kiss on the streets of London, I throw resistance out the window.
What could go wrong with a hot, no-strings-attached fling before he leaves town in five days? Trouble is, soon our nights together lead to days, to long conversations, to getting to know each other, and to something I never expected—falling ridiculously hard for a man who’s getting on a plane to America when I live a world away.
My life is here. His is there. And no amount of falling or feeling will change that one big problem.

Warning: contains hot hotel nights, loads of dirty talk, PDA all over London, and two sexy, witty, charming heroes…

Maybe This Time


From #1 NYT Bestseller Lauren Blakely comes a sexy, forbidden MM romance novella about a rock star and a bodyguard!

There’s one thing I need in my life right now and one thing only — a new job.
So I’m stoked when I land a dream gig as a bodyguard for a rock star.
But there’s definitely one thing I do not need at all — a complication.
Like being wildly attracted to the guy who just hired me.
So I vow to do everything I can to deny the intense attraction for the man I’m sworn to protect.
All I have to do is ignore it. Eventually it’ll go away, right?
But that’s not what happens one night after a concert…

MAYBE THIS TIME is a 14,000-word prequel novella about how Stone and Jackson meet and it leads into their full-length novel ONE TIME ONLY. You don’t have to read MAYBE THIS TIME to enjoy ONE TIME ONLY, but you’ll likely enjoy this story before the story!

One Time Only


A fiery, passionate forbidden standalone MM romance from #1 New York Times Bestselling author Lauren Blakely…

Ever hear the story about the bodyguard who falls for the rock star?
Yeah, it never ends well.
Each day I remind myself that it’s my job to protect Stone. And nowhere in the job description does it say I should lust after the charismatic, charming man.
Especially since we’re opposites.
But every night I spend with him the dangerous, off-limits attraction grows more intense.
Until one night in a limo when we combust.
One time only will have to be enough. One scorching, forbidden night.
Because the mistakes from the past are chasing me. And if I give in again, I’ll lose everything.
But sometimes you grab hold of the desire. And other times, the desire takes hold of you.
No matter the cost.

ONE TIME ONLY is a standalone MM romance! Devour this MM rocker/bodyguard forbidden romance!

Scoring With Him


As a pro athlete, I’ve spent my life playing by rules, on and off the field. Especially this one — Don’t date another baseball player.

Following that ironclad rule has been as easy for me as hitting a lazy pop fly on a summer afternoon.

Especially since I’ve got far too much trouble in my past to want to bring any into my present.

Until the day a hotshot rookie walks into my locker room. Outgoing, affable, and sexy-as-sin, Grant has confidence and talent for miles.

Doesn’t help that he’s easy to talk to, that he seems to get me, and that we each have our fair share of secrets and scars — ones we’ll both fight to protect.

All the more reason to resist the kind of trouble his lips and eyes promise.

Even after I plant a scorching, hot kiss on the rising star one night after a game.

Even after he sends me the world’s sexiest selfie.

But when Grant reveals his biggest secret, and asks for my help, I’m so damn ready to rip up the rulebook.

Turns out he’s a virgin and he wants me to help him get around all the bases.

As long as I don’t fall in love with him as we go.

Scoring with Him is book one in a two-book duet. This romance between two professional athletes spans five epic years and continues in Winning With Him.

Winning With Him


Grant and Declan’s romance continues in this MM forbidden sports romance from #1 NYT Bestseller Lauren Blakely! Winning With Him is the second and final book in the two-book Men of Summer duet – a passionate, angsty, sexy sports romance that spans five epic years!

Would You Rather


If I’ve said it once, I’ve said it a thousand times. Friends don’t bang friends.

I want my friends to stay in my life, especially that flirty, clever, outgoing best friend of mine. The one I can talk about anything with. The guy I hang out with on weekends.

It’s a damn good thing we made a pact in college to never ever sleep together, or else I’d be tempted.

Since I’ve been wondering lately what his kisses taste like. And I’ve been curious too if our chemistry would extend into the bedroom.

But…all I have to do is avoid the bedroom with him, and I won’t break that hard-as-steel rule.

Until the night we take off for a road trip and the snow has other plans…

Would You Rather is a sexy, flirty, friends-to-lovers, snowed-in MM romance you won’t want to miss!

One wedding, two best men, three nights to sneak into his hotel room…
