(A MM standalone in The Guys Who Got Away World)

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, dirty, 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 alpha heroes…

A Guy Walks Into My Bar is a sexy MM standalone romance in The Guys Who Got Away world! The other standalone romances in The Guys Who Got Away series include the MF romances The What If Guy, The Dream Guy Next Door, and Thanks For Last Night.


(A MM standalone)

A fiery, passionate MM forbidden romance novel 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.


(Men of Summer Book 1)

An emotional, sexy, forbidden romance! Scoring with Him is the first novel in the utterly addictive Men of Summer Series!

Falling for the rookie wasn’t part of the plan.

As a pro athlete, I have one unbreakable rule when it comes to men — Don’t date another baseball player.

Good thing I haven’t been tempted once in four years in the majors.

Until the day a rising star walks into my locker room. Outgoing, affable, and sexy-as-sin, Grant has confidence and talent for miles. He seems to get me too, maybe because we each have our fair share of secrets and scars — ones we’ll both fight to protect.

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

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

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

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

But when Grant reveals his biggest secret, 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.

The only rule? Don’t fall in love with him as we go.

Scoring with Him is book one in the utterly addictive Men of Summer series. This romance between two professional athletes spans five epic years and continues in Winning With Him.


(Men of Summer Book 2)

Grant and Declan’s romance continues in this MM forbidden sports romance from #1 NYT Bestseller Lauren Blakely!

Resisting the shortstop has never been my strong suit. I failed at it during my first spring training. It sure as hell looks like I’m about to fail at it again.

The sport I love playing with my very soul hangs in the balance. But everything my heart craves lies with the guy I’ve got to resist.

A guy who’s asking me to make the toughest choice ever.

But how do I become the man I want to be…with him or without him?

Trouble is, I can’t seem to get Declan out of my head, even if I stand to lose everything I’ve worked for my entire life…

Winning with Him is book two in the utterly addictive Men of Summer series, and should be read following Scoring With Him. This romance between two professional athletes spans five epic years.


(Men of Summer Book 3)

Once upon a time all I needed was baseball, friends and extracurricular activities. Then everything changed when Declan Steele stormed into my life and upended all my priorities with his heart, his love, his passion.

So my next five-year plan will include this new ground rule—Love big.

Only, that’s easier said than done when my man and I come face to face with hard truths and new troubles about what it means to be all in.

That’s when I learn that finding love isn’t the hardest part.

Keeping it is.

All In with Him is the final novel in the Men of Summer series, and should be read following Winning With Him.


(An MM standalone)


Two great friends. One road trip. And eight inches…

…of snow that night at the cabin.

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.

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

Trouble is, eight years later I’ve been wondering what his kisses taste like. And I’ve been curious if our chemistry would extend into the bedroom. If he might feel the same risky pull.

But I don’t want to lose Owen, and history says there’s no way a tryst between friends can end well.

So as long as I avoid the bedroom with him, I won’t break that hard-as-steel rule.

Except the snow has other plans…

The Bromance Zone is a deliciously flirty, red-hot sexy, friends-to-lovers MM romance about the charming guy next door who’s sworn to never date a friend, the flirty hot nerd who’s been secretly crushing on that friend forever, and one night snowed in in a cabin. This book comes fully equipped for your reading pleasure with sexy banter, a super awkward dinner party, and a scene in front of a fireplace that proves just how dangerous the friend zone is.


(A standalone MM romance)

Bestselling authors Sarina Bowen and Lauren Blakely team up for the first time in an enemies-to-lovers, opposites-attract, irresistibly sexy standalone romance between the best man and the other best man!

In my defense, I was left alone with a bottle of single-malt and a life-long penchant for protecting my baby sister. Still, that’s no excuse to send ten drunk-texts on why her hasty marriage would be a mistake.

If only I had just texted my sister. But nope. I accidentally sent the message to her, her groom, and his super hot wingman.

I also used the phrase “super hot wingman,” so I’d like to die now.

Instead, I have to plan a wedding with the aforementioned hottie and share a too-small guesthouse in steamy Miami.

Three days in the sun with the cocky, charming former athlete who likes to push my buttons? Fine, two can play at that let’s-infuriate-each-other game.

Until Asher ups the stakes with one wildly sexy suggestion. A no-strings fling, then I go back to my single dad life in New York, and he returns to his star-studded one.

Sign me up.

But the more nights I spend with the other best man, the more I want days too, and that just can’t happen. Especially when I find out the real reason why…

Contents Include: First times, a secret to-do list, champion-level flirting, fast cars, #eggplants, and two men who look good in formal wear.


(The Hopelessly Bromantic Duet Book 1)

Banging your roomie is a bad idea…especially when the bed’s not the only thing that can break.

My first day in London feels ripped from the pages of a rom com when I meet a charming, witty guy in a quaint book shop. We vibe like crazy, and our chemistry is almost too good to be true because…guess what?

It is.

Turns out the English hottie is my new roommate.

For the next year, we’ll be living in close quarters in a tiny one-bedroom flat that’s barely big enough for a mattress, let alone two libidos that need to be locked up.

Instead, I spend my nights working on my first novel and he spends his auditioning, and we steal time in between to visit music bars and cool shops, wander the city, and share our hopes and dreams.

But all this falling into friendship does nothing to douse the flames in my pants.

Until we find a loophole in the roomies code where we promise we won’t get our hearts involved.

Except, it might already be too late for me.

Then, I learn sharing a flat and hiding my true feelings are the least of my worries.

Contents Include: Incendiary flirting, opposites attracting, flat-sharing antics, a broken shower that needs fixing, and the first novel in a scorching, emotional, hilarious two-book epic romance that’ll take you from London to New York, from Paris to Los Angeles, and back!


(The Hopelessly Bromantic Duet Book 2)

A red-hot, enemies-to-lovers, fake boyfriend, second chance romance!

Let me just say this — fake dating the cocky movie star was not my idea. Especially since he’s my former roomie and, gulp, my secret ex.

But my agent tells me I have no choice since I’m ridiculously overdue with turning in the next big blockbuster love story to my publisher.

Not to mention, ahem, writing it.

Hooking up with the smooth-talking English hottie once upon a time — fine, twice — were huge mistakes that I shouldn’t repeat, but pretending to like the guy who drives me crazy is my only chance at saving my job.

That is, as long as no one finds out that every date we go on, every smile we flash each other for the cameras, and every hot, desperate kiss on the streets of Manhattan is absolutely fake.

Except…it’s not. At least for me.

And he can never know…

Contents Include: Snarky banter, sexy dates, hate s-e-x, seduction by a wordsmith, and two strong, stubborn, clever men determined to resist each other at all costs.


(An MM standalone)

A sexy, emotionally-charged rivals-to-lovers sports romance…

Some men are just off-limits.

Like, say, your rival.

Double the forbidden factor if he’s the other pro quarterback in the same city.

When I first hear the news that my one-time college fling has been traded to San Francisco, I figure it’ll be no big deal. Just like he told me our hookup was when he left in the middle of the night.

Fine by me. What are the chances I’ll even see him that much now?

Except my team’s PR department has us playing nice together. Which means I’m doing TV appearances and charity events with the broody, sexy, enigmatic athlete who stares at me both like he hates me and like I’m his last meal.
I’m doing a winning job ignoring those looks. Until the night he shows up at my door after a game and confesses why he walked away that night years ago…


(An MM standalone)

A red-hot and witty, feel-good, fake boyfriend standalone sports romance between a swoony American athlete and a charming Brit!

After falling too fast too many times, I’ve got a new game plan—play it cool. When a hunky Brit hurls a pie my way at a charity event, I stick to my new Mister Casual strategy. Dessert on my face and chest is no biggie. It’s the perfect opportunity to invite the English hottie to come home with me.
As luck would have it, he’s been burned by love too. And since I need a date for an event in Vegas, I make the wild suggestion that we jet off to the city of sin for a rebound fling. He ups the ante with: “how about boyfriend lessons while we’re at it?” We’ll spend the weekend pretending we’re together and sharing tips on how to be the best boyfriend ever. When we’re done, we’ll walk away, armed with new skills in and out of the bedroom.
But, somewhere amid the bets and the blackjack tables, our lessons turn into more than either one of us bargained for.
And there’s nothing in my fake or real relationship playbook to tell me what to do when we say goodbye.

Contents include: A swoony, sweet American football player, a charming, British businessman, puns galore, all the sexy times you could want, and a double serving of sexy men.
