Free sample

What would you do if the hottest new female country music singer, asked you to come up to her place?

Nat Owen, formerly nobody from nowhere, now World Series MVP, followed his instincts. The star first baseman fell under the spell of the singer the minute she batted her eyelashes at him.

What about Nicki? Were they only friends, or about to become more? The female pro softball catcher and the first baseman had chemistry. Just as Nat made his move on Nicki, Lucy strutted into his life, offering stardom, glitter, and a lifestyle he could only dream about.

What’s a man to do? With his head in one place and his heart in another, Nat bounced from one to the other, trying to make up his mind. When an offer he couldn’t refuse was dangled in front of him, he went for it. Little did he know, he had a lot more to lose than his heart.

USA TODAY BESTSELLER • The offseason is heating up for one Carolina Cold Fury heartbreaker who’s eager to make nice with the girl next door.

No one plays like Reed Olson, whether it’s hockey season or not. After back-to-back NHL championships, he’s craving a little R&R. Reed leans to a specific type—blond, busty, and interested—and fortunately he has a little black book full of options. So why is it he can’t stop dreaming about the new girl who just moved in next door? A certified brainiac, she seems to want nothing to do with the hard-bodied athlete.

Josie Ives desperately needs something her celebrity neighbor obviously doesn’t: solitude. Reed is everything she imagined—a little too good-looking, with a body that puts Greek gods to shame. But she didn’t expect he would also be funny and charming. Josie knows she’s the opposite of his type, and that’s fine with her. Still, the chemistry between them is undeniable. Their newfound friendship certainly has its benefits, but she’s starting to wonder if opposites really do attract.

Praise for Reed

“Sawyer Bennett is my go-to author for all things sexy. And Reed certainly blew my skates right off!”—USA Today bestselling author Stacey Kennedy

“Reed has quickly become one of my favorite books in the series. If you are a longtime lover of the Cold Fury boys like me, then you don’t want to miss this one. I guarantee that if you are grabbing this one as a standalone, it will make you want to jump in feet first to the entire series.”—Red Cheeks Reads

“So much fun . . . a lovely romance between an off-season hockey star and his ER doctor neighbor that made me laugh and then swoon and then laugh again.”—Becky on Books . . . and Quilts

Includes an excerpt from another Loveswept title.
Due persone, due tragedie, due segreti devastanti.
Griff Montgomery è il plurititolato quarterback e rubacuori dei Kings. È un donnaiolo alto un metro e novantacinque, di trentatré anni.
Lauren Farraday è una bellissima arredatrice d’interni, amaramente segnata dal divorzio, la cui vita sta cadendo a pezzi.
Anche se con violenza si scontrano uno contro l’altro in tribunale per amore di un carlino – lei pensa che lui sia arrogante e presuntuoso, lui pensa che lei sia una puttana su ruote – succede qualcosa…
Ecco le premesse di questo romanzo frizzante, pieno di passione, il primo di una nuova serie che saprà stuzzicare tutte le amanti del football americano, e che rimarranno incollate fino all’ultima pagina.
Griff sembra un supereroe con i suoi capelli mogano arruffati, il suo sorriso abbagliante, gli occhi scuri e sexy e un corpo che in un paio di jeans stretti è qualcosa di indescrivibile.
Anche se Lauren ha giurato di rinunciare per sempre agli uomini, un solo sguardo verso quell’uomo le fa scendere brividi lungo la schiena, facendola sentire più sola che mai.
I suoi lunghi capelli, quegli occhi verdi brillanti e le curve mozzafiato, faranno formicolare le dita al quarterback, al solo pensiero di poterla toccare.
Come faranno ad affrontare la loro crescente attrazione? Saranno in grado di abbandonare le loro facciate, quella di Griff per camuffare il dolore per la partenza della sorella e dei nipoti, ai quali ha fatto da padre negli ultimi dieci anni… e quella di Lauren dovuta alla separazione dal marito e alla perdita di un bambino?
Per Griff l’idea di innamorarsi è una cosa nuova, talmente strana che per lui sarebbe come indossare le ballerine e un tutù. Per Lauren sarebbe come mettersi le scarpe con i tacchetti e un casco, e correre le cinquanta yarde.
Riusciranno? Ci proveranno? Rischieranno? Non vi resta che scoprirlo.
