Rowdy (Marked Men #5) by Jay crownover

rowdy

After the only girl he ever loved told him that he would never be enough, Rowdy St. James knocked the Texas dust off his  boots and set out to live up to his nickname. A good ol’ boy looking for good times and good friends, Rowdy refuses to  take anything too seriously, especially when it comes to the opposite sex. Burned by love once, he isn’t going to let himself  trust a woman again. But that’s before his new co-worker arrives, a ghost from the past who’s suddenly making him  question every lesson he ever learned.

Salem Cruz grew up in house with too many rules and too little fun—a world of unhappiness she couldn’t wait to forget.  But one nice thing from childhood has stayed with her; the memory of the sweet, blue-eyed boy next door who’d been  head over heels in love with her little sister.

Now, fate and an old friend have brought her and Rowdy together, and Salem is determined to show him that once upon  a time he picked the wrong sister. A mission that is working perfectly—until the one person that ties them together  appears, threatening to tear them apart for good.

Asa (Marked Men #6) by Jay Crownover

Asa

 Starting over in Denver with a whole new circle of friends and family, Asa Cross struggles with being the man he knows  everyone wants him to be and the man he knows he really is. A leopard doesn’t it change its spots and Asa has always  been a predator. He doesn’t want to hurt those who love and rely on him, especially one luscious arresting cop who  suddenly seems to be interested in him for far more than his penchant for breaking the law. But letting go of old habits is  hard, and it’s easy to hit bottom when it’s the place you know best.

Royal Hastings is quickly learning what the bottom looks like after a tragic situation at work threatens not only her career  but her partner’s life. As a woman who has only ever had a few real friends she’s trying to muddle through her confusion  and devastation all alone. Except she can’t stop thinking about the sexy southern bartender she locked up. Crushing on  Asa is the last thing she needs but his allure is too strong to resist. His long criminal record can only hurt her already  shaky career and chasing after a guy who has no respect for the law or himself can only end in heartbreak.

A longtime criminal and a cop together just seems so wrong . . . but for Asa and Royal, being wrong together is the only right choice to make.

Fall With Me (Wait for you #4) by Jennifer L Armentrout

fwm

Eleven months ago, bartender and weird-shirt-wearing extraordinaire Roxy and Officer Reece Anders had a one night stand. Well, kind of. She’s been in love with him since she was fifteen, and he wishes that night they shared never happened. She’s sworn him off forever, but the past and future collide, forcing her to rely on the one man who broke her heart not once, but twice.

Her best friend since birth has been in a long-term care facility since he became a victim of a hate crime years ago, and the person who put him in there is out of prison and wanting to make amends with him and Roxy. She’s not sure she has room for forgiveness in her and when she begins to receive frightening messages and is on the receiving end of escalating violence, she thinks she knows who is to blame. The man who already destroyed one life already.

But Reece isn’t convinced. The threats are too personal, and even if Roxy doesn’t believe him, he’s not willing to let anyone hurt her. Including himself. He’s already messed up more than once when it comes to Roxy and he’s not going to let history repeat itself. (

The Australian (Crime Royalty Romance #2) by Lesley Young

australian

Imagine leaving behind all that you know and starting over halfway around the world. Imagine you’ve got no gut instinct to rely on, no natural-born ability to read people or sort out lies from truth. Imagine your heart goes haywire every time you stare into a certain pair of deeply mesmerizing dark eyes. Now you’re in Charlie Sykes’ (highly sensible) shoes . . .

Charlie Sykes takes everything and everyone at face value, and believes life would be a lot easier if everyone else did, too. Jace Knight, international Aussie hotelier and purported playboy, has never met anyone like the absurdly literal and obliviously beautiful American who applies to his personal assistant position.

The trouble is, how do you seduce a woman whose definition of flirting comes straight out of the Merriam-Webster Dictionary? That, and he’s not the only one after Charlie. Seems Mr. Knight may not be a reformed criminal after all.

Charlie soon finds herself caught up in a whirlwind of dangerous international espionage that takes her from the hip streets of Sydney to the majestic Great Barrier Reef and the wild, desolate outback. A terrible trap’s being laid, but how will Charlie protect herself and prevent a devastating betrayal when she can’t even sort out what her heart’s telling her?
