This boyfriend business is about to get a whole lot more personal...
Event planner Lexi Mannis has a busy life in Chicago - too busy to have a boyfriend. For special occasions, she has her Stand-In Boyfriend, Mac Northrop. Mac offers (almost) all the perks of a real boyfriend - furniture assembly, a date to big events, and someone to cook for. But they've never been "with benefits"...until one wickedly hot night crosses the line.
Mac's been in love with Lexi for ages. He knows he should probably end it, but dammit, he just can't. When things get deliciously down and dirty, Mac is certain that he's made the leap out of the friend zone...until Lexi decides she wants to remain friends. With benefits.
What Lexi doesn't know is that she's running out of time. And if she won't promote Mac to Real Boyfriend, she might just lose her Stand-In Boyfriend to someone else...
She's hands off...but he really wants to be hands on.
Pro hockey player Tag Heller is back in his home city of Winnipeg after a crappy season that culminated in the team being sold and moved. As the “home town hero”, he's feeling the heat to promote the team and make this a positive move for the other players, the fans, the entire National Hockey League. A break for a week at the lake sounds like heaven.
Kyla MacIntosh was always like a little sister to Tag growing up. She followed Tag and his hockey players everywhere, trying to be one of the guys, and now she’s killing herself trying to make partner at her old-boys-club law firm. But she's not little anymore and Tag’s feelings aren't sisterly at all. Will a hot week at the lake be enough to show them that they were meant to be forever?
Air Force Pararescuer Ryan Flannery avoids his hometown at all costs. He's not thrilled about the date until he's shocked silent by the prickly little librarian's sweet curves and kissable lips...and her smart mouth. But then an argument leads to a kiss that spirals out of control. How can two people have so little chemistry outside the bedroom when they fit together so perfectly in it?
When their friends strand them in a cabin to "work things out," Bri's not sure whether to kill him or put the industrial-sized box of condoms they find to use. Bottom line—Ryan's career military and hates the tiny town she loves. He'll leave, just like everyone else in her life. And if she's foolish enough to give him her heart, he'll take it with him.

I was poised to become partner at my law firm even before I became secretly engaged to my boss. After being humiliated by him on my wedding day, I can’t face working for him any longer. So I quit, waving my middle finger on my way out.
Now the only things I’m poised for are unemployment and loneliness.
When an opportunity with Cole Security arises, it seems like the perfect way to run, all the way to Virginia Beach. I wasn’t expecting my childhood sweetheart to be there. I definitely wasn’t prepared that when we saw each other again, Benjamin Pryce would be so grown-up. So gorgeous. So Navy SEAL-ish.
And still the same guy who broke my heart when I was fifteen--and could do it again.
They say if you’re fooled once, shame on them. The second time, it’s on you. The third time, it’s going to be me that runs… unless he can convince me to stay forevermore.
