Can you know what you want before you have it?

Or do you have to lose it know for sure?


Mild-mannered Matt Coxwell has finally found something worth fighting for. In fact, it's only after he's left his marriage that he realizes he hasn't fought this hard for anything since he fell like a ton of bricks for his wife Leslie. How did their marriage shift from idyllic into idle? And is there any way back?

Leslie Coxwell, long rumored to be the most organized working mother alive, is suddenly having a tough time coping. Her job's in jeopardy, her teenage daughter has attitude to spare (well, that's not new), and her formidable mother-in-law has moved in unexpectedlyÉwith two very large poodles

She could juggle it all with the right motivation. Unfortunately, her husband, MattÑthe motivation for everything Leslie has ever doneÑturned into a sexy enigmatic stranger right before he walked out the door. Even better, he's gone to stay with his free-spirited ex-fiancŽ, the one woman who makes Leslie feel as sexy as dirty dishwater.

The only good news is that Leslie still has the greatest lingerie collection known to womankind and she's prepared to use it. After all, to give her marriage one more chance, to take the chance on falling in love one more time, she'll need all the support she can get...Ê

Cassie has everything she wants...

Cassie Wilson's life is pretty much perfect, with a dream job, great partners—and the freedom to do as she pleases. The last thing she wants is to go back to Montrose River, the town she couldn't wait to leave, and revisit the past. But when her oldest friend asks her to be a godmother, Cassie sees an opportunity to make a difference in Emily's life. Maybe teaching Emily to dream big will be her legacy. Besides, one weekend in the Midwest won't kill her. She'll be back in Manhattan so quickly that they won't have time to miss her at Flatiron Five Fitness.

Reid knows what he wants...

Reid Jackson is convinced that luck has to be made. Keeping his eyes open has been the secret to his triumph over his past, along with a lot of hard work. He might have come from the wrong side of the tracks, and he might have the reputation of being bad to the bone, but he's built his own brand of success. When Cassie Wilson comes breezing back into town, Reid is ready to find out if she really is different from everyone else. Cassie turns his expectations inside out, fulfilling his dreams and shaking up his routine. But when Cassie decides she wants more than a fling, Reid knows he's not the man she wants him to be—can Cassie convince him to hope for more?


An earlier version of this story was published under the title Some Guys Have All the Luck.

Straight out of college, five friends with a dream joined forces to build success. Ten years later, their exclusive fitness club, Flatiron Five Fitness, is the hottest destination in Manhattan. People flock to F5F to get fit, to get lucky, and even, to fall in love. The founding partners have been immune to F5F's romantic spell—at least, so far...

The Flatiron Five Fitness series of contemporary romances and romantic comedies are set in New York City, and feature the partners in a successful gym. The books should be read in order.

4. Just One Hometown Hero (Cassie and Reid)

8. Just One Silver Fox (Jacquie and Pierce)


In Just One Night Together, the partners add a tattoo shop to F5's services for members. A legendary tattoo artist, Chynna, runs the shop and gives away a tattoo on each full moon. The rumor is that the tattoo will bring true love to the recipient. Cassie gets the first one.

Damon has a secret...

Every Friday night, the F5F partner who is the quiet powerhouse leaves on the dot of five without explanation. Where does Damon go? What does he do? His partners want to know, but Damon can't bring himself to share the truth about his mom's battle with cancer. She's the anchor in his life and he doesn't know how he'll go on without her. In the middle of the night, when he's most alone, he wants to control all the variables for someone, to prove he's not completely powerless. He doesn't expect to find such a willing, or seductive, volunteer...

Haley loves solving mysteries...

Especially ones like the gorgeous guy who visits her favorite patient every Friday night. He must be Natasha's son, but is he also the model on the billboard for that fitness club downtown? Where did he learn therapeutic massage? Even though she's a nurse, Haley's interest in him and his skill isn't just professional. She wants to feel those hands on her own skin, for as long as possible. One night, she takes a chance and asks for a lesson from him, only to discover that she has a hunger for the sensation only Damon can satisfy.
