Before I was a pro hockey player, I was an Eagle Scout. I can tie knots, build shelters and fish like nobody’s business, making me the perfect choice to represent my team on a reality show set on a primitive tropical island. I can endure scorching heat, tough competitions and torrential rainfall—no problem. But when I find out who my partner is, I’m not so sure I’ll survive being stranded on an island with her.
Archer Holt broke my heart eight years ago. Now he’s rich and famous, and I’m a high school English teacher in our hometown. When I’m offered the chance to compete for half a million dollars by outlasting fifteen other teams on an island with my selfish jerk of an ex, I jump at it, because that money can change not just my life, but my family’s. Besides, I’m long over Archer.
Or so I thought.
From Contemporary Romance Author Avery Samson comes a brand new romantic comedy full of unexpected laughs and the forever kind of love.
Karlie is a star volleyball player at a small college in New England. Moving into the last available apartment on campus, she has high hopes until she finds its state less than stellar. Deciding to make the best out of a sketchy situation, she soldiers on. Until she locks herself out the first night. No one else has moved in, so she’s left with only one option. Call the university police to help.
Max is just settling into his new, temporary assignment as a police officer on one of the many college campuses in town. Heading home after patrolling the first day of move-in by the fall athletes, he agrees to take one last call. Little does he know what awaits him on the other side of the line. He just has to survive flaming appliances, nipple rings, rabid squirrels, and a basement dwelling chupacabra to win the girl of his dreams.
Ever meant to text your ex, but accidentally messaged a stranger instead? I did, and that mistake started a friendship that became important to me as I navigated a move and a new job with the St. Louis Mavericks. I’m crushing life as a strong, single woman until I discover the truth. That stranger I’m crushing on? He’s actually not a stranger at all.
Giving a fake name to the woman who accidentally texted me seemed like a good idea at the time. As a pro hockey player, my real name tends to draw out puck bunnies and fame seekers. But when the woman who thinks I’m “Rob” starts working for the Mavericks, I find myself in a jam. How do I tell her the man she thinks she’s falling for is actually the somewhat arrogant (though charming) hockey player she can’t stand?
I had two plans after graduation:
Get the hell out of this shit town and find my missing father.
Until then, comfortably invisible is how I preferred to spend my time.
That was, until I turned the corner, smacking into the chest of a jade-eyed stranger.
He makes me question my sanity.
The secrets he’s keeping make me question my safety.
The way he looks at me makes me question everything.
One thing is for sure, Dominic Pope will change my life.
Good or bad…
I’m just not sure which yet.
Revenge is a promise you make to yourself;
A pact to repay someone who has wronged you.
My sole focus for the past year has been to infiltrate and extinguish.
Get close, gain the Devil’s trust, then knock him off his shiny pedestal.
I didn’t plan on her, though.
My Night Sky.
The girl with a sharp tongue, flickering stars in her eyes, and cinnamon-brown hair.
I didn’t prepare for my need for her outweighing my plan.
Straying from the blueprints of my revenge is getting easier and easier,
but is it possible to keep her safe and call her mine?
Because one thing is for sure:
I’m not letting her go.
One word can hold tremendous power. One word can change everything.
I never imagined it would come to this. That I would fall for Micah Reed.
That I would open my heart once more. And get it crushed. Again.
The moment I let him in, the second our relationship evolved, fate threw an epic curve ball.
One we can’t ignore. One I don’t know I can endure.
But call me a glutton for punishment.
One word stole my breath. One word had my knees ready to buckle.
I refuse to believe anything without proof. Refuse to let someone ruin my life.
Call me a d-bag, I don’t care. Deep down, I know the truth.
Now, if only Peyton would believe it, too.
My relationship with Peyton is headed in the right direction. Her fire is no longer fueled by hate.
Now, I know the taste of her lips. The softness of her skin. The warmth of her touch.
And no one will steal her from me. No one.
I fell for Micah Reed.
I fell for Peyton Alexander.
Was it all for nothing?
Will she abandon me when I need her most?
I learned the hard way that actions have consequences. One misguided night has left me with both physical and emotional scars. I’d hoped transferring colleges would help me heal, but I never expected 𝘩𝘪𝘮 to be my remedy.
Hudson Wright looks at me like I’m another trophy to win. A challenge. 𝘈 𝘨𝘢𝘮𝘦. I should hate him and I definitely shouldn’t trust him.
The truth is, I’m caught up in his storm.
For the first time in almost a year, I feel alive. When he’s near, sparks ignite under my skin. They’re addictive and make me ignore all warning signs and doubts.
The star quarterback may be used to winning, but I can play games too.

Peyton Alexander makes me question my sanity. Yet, I refuse to stop antagonizing her.
Since her first day at work, she has given me the death glare. Lipped off and verbally slapped me.
And every night, I go back for another round.
Not sure what I did to deserve her animosity, but I plan to find out. Plan to fix whatever mistake I made.

Call me presumptuous, but Peyton Alexander will be mine.
Micah wants me because I don’t fall for his charms.
Peyton resists to deny herself the truth.
Will he figure out who I am?
Will she ever let me in?

Wilder’s on another level, and you’re not allowed. He’s out to expose every conspiracy from Area 51’s alien relocation program to the trackers implanted in our brains. The man doesn’t kiss a woman without patting her down twice, but if you need to get your hands on an arsenal, his is unmatched.
My growling, snapping Cato escaped his last mental institution. Now he has a new obsession: ripping out the throat of anyone who looks at me sideways. Don’t worry, he can’t bite you through the muzzle.
Then, of course, there’s their leader, Rafael. The son of a hitman dances his way around campus, and only takes his headphones off to hear the obscene amount you’ll pay him to take care of your problems. Otherwise, stay out of his blissful world, or he’ll blow it up with you inside.
These four are as determined to make up for not protecting my sister as they are to protect… and keep… me.
They’re freaks. Weirdos. Psychos. But damned if they’re not taking my heart like they do everything else—without mercy or permission.

A College Romance...
For years, I’ve dreamt of what college life could bring and while some things changed, there was always one constant.
It didn’t matter how wild I allowed my imagination to run, it always led me to the same place in the end.
It led me to him.
My future was clear, and he was it.
Until suddenly ... he wasn’t.
Now I’m a shell of who I was, on a path too blurry to follow, and I see no way out.
No way up.
They say first loves last forever.
That’s exactly what I’m afraid of.
The dark didn't end with the light. He lost his future. She fights to survive. More secrets, more betrayal, and a love that was meant to fail before it even began.
My name is Weston, but my friends call me Wes.
Though, I don't have many left.
Two years ago, I lost my dream. My future.
My best friend's sister stumbled across a secret she had no idea existed—her secret.
Friendships were betrayed. Unexpected alliances were formed.
My loyalty was tested, but I blindly stood by their side.
What I didn't realize was that following them into the dark would cost me everything. My friends. My scholarship.
I was driven by anger and resentment toward the people I had once trusted with my life.
Until I met her: King.
My name is Kingsley Monroe.
At least, that's the name I go by these days.
I didn't plan this. I wasn't supposed to stay. Keep moving, he ordered.
Then, one fateful afternoon changed the course of my future. I ran into him: Weston Sheats—literally.
I stayed in the shadows for over a year. Eventually, my need for him to notice made me step out of the dark. I wanted him to see me once. I swore I wouldn't let him get close, I would not get attached. I failed.
An unexpected turn of events was the wake-up call I needed. I had to tell him, come clean. But would he accept my past? Who I am?
Realizing there was no future, I did what I was supposed to do months ago…and I took the one thing with me that could've made a difference for both of us.
