Once upon a time, I was meant to be one of the three leaders of The Order.

Both cost me the one person that made life worth living.
Losing her made me become The Ghost.
I watched the consequences of my former world unravel, fighting from the shadows against the person who took everything from me.

Eloise
I was the firstborn Cartwright, destined by my family’s legacy to run the Institute.
If you didn’t follow The Order, we would find a way to make you.

Unbeknownst to everyone, I’ve been waiting in the dark to take back what is mine.

And Carson Taylor is one of them.

She’s my best friend’s little sister, Grace Prescott.

We’re in agreement to keep our affair a secret, especially since neither one of us do relationships.

You’ve probably figured it out already, but things didn’t go as planned.

I had no intention of breaking the one rule given to me on my first day on the job: no sleeping with the players.

And if I had, I never dreamed that player would be Johnny Maverick.

Falling in Reverse by Julia Wolf

Ronan Walsh.

Delicious Irish accent. Built like a slab of marble. Infuriatingly controlling.

My new bodyguard…

All I want is to rock hard with my band, The Seasons Change, and finally live my life exactly how I please. No one telling me what to do, no constraints, total freedom.

Too bad I’ve managed to piss someone off.

Crazed fan or bitter ex, it doesn’t really matter, since the result is the same. My wings are clipped and I’m strapped to a bodyguard with steamrolling tendencies and a disdain for celebrities.

Everyday I spend with Ronan is a battle. For control. For independence. And most unexpectedly, with my own willpower.

Because Ronan doesn’t just want to protect me. He wants me in his bed too, and ceding my control to Ronan is more tempting than I ever imagined.

But I’m Iris Adler, a fierce-to-my-bones rocker. If Ronan Walsh really wants all of me, he’d better be prepared for the fall.

 

Heart Starter by Michelle Hercules

My plans were simple. Graduate from college, get a job, and not worry anymore if I can make next month’s rent.

It turns out I might have a shot at getting drafted to play in the NFL, and nothing will distract me from that goal.

I didn’t count on Sadie Clarkson wrecking my plans. Our first meeting was explosive, to say the least. Now I can’t stop thinking about her sassy attitude or sexy mouth.

On top of being a distraction I don’t need, she’s also the coach’s daughter and off-limits.

But forbidden fruit always tastes better. She might cost me everything I’ve worked for, and yet, I’m willing to risk it all. My sanity. My heart. My soul.

 

Horizon by Aria Wyatt

When hemispheres collide…

It started out innocent.

He was my older brother’s best friend. The teen who built sandcastles and splashed in the waves with me when I was a little girl. We’d collect seashells and build moats around our castles to protect the imaginary princess within. He was my Jake. I was his princess.

His summer visits to Australia became less frequent after scoring his first record deal, but I never forgot him. While the multiplatinum singer-songwriter traveled the world, melting hearts and panties with his lyrics, I filled a notebook with his name.

Everything changed when Jake flew in for my brother’s thirtieth birthday party. At eighteen, I’d come a long way from the girl he remembered. One lingering touch was all it took to ignite us. I kissed him, but he walked away. He was still on tour, I was about to start college, and let’s not forget my hotheaded brother.

But after graduation, when a New York internship opportunity lands me in the Brooklyn brownstone across from his, the ocean between us is replaced with a street.

Jake thinks he can’t have me—we’re different as earth and sky—but I’ll prove him wrong. Those five years of distance only deepened my ache. His demons don’t scare me. He’s everything I’ve ever wanted, and I know I can make him happy if he’ll let me.
I’m determined to try. After all, his old sweatshirt is not the only thing I’ve held on to for him…

When earth meets sky on the horizon, Jake Bennett, the King of Ballads, will be mine.

It’s to stop an unidentified threat from taking her – or die trying.
