Things I don’t need while up for a promotion to police sergeant—a roomie who makes me think criminal thoughts.
Can I arrest him for being too good-looking?
But I soon learn Derek is is strong, caring, generous, good with kids, and kind to puppies… and might be able to help me with my promotion, which gives me an idea...
A no-strings-attached fling with the fiery redhead who revs my engine? Why, yes, that does sound like a delicious perk of my new job in this new town.
Except, it turns out Perri’s my sexy, sassy landlord.
When she comes to me with a out-of-left-field proposition, resisting her is going to take more than handcuffs

Following rules shot me to the top of my game as an all-star baseball player, and the golden rule is this -- don’t hookup with your teammate’s sister.
But ask her to be your fake date when you desperately need one for a family wedding?
Nothing in the guy code against that. Plus, the flirty, feisty Sierra’s my friend too, so why the hell not pretend we’re madly in lust for two days in Hawaii? No hardship in a make believe kiss here, a fake smooch there, as long as we don’t cross any dangerous lines.
Then, the hotel books us into the same suite. Which means she’s showering near me, putting on itty bitty bikinis in the same room, sliding into that king-size bed wearing only a black lace cami.
But I resist...until the night she tells me she’s been waiting for me to be her first.
And there’s nothing fake about my desire to say yes, even though that’s definitely against the code. But, maybe only if someone catches feelings?
And neither one of us will.
Until I do…
I’ve got a problem. After a dozen failed dates - but who’s counting - I’m done hunting for Mr. Right.
I’m more than ready to cash in my V-card, and at this point I’ll gladly hand it over to Mr. Right Now.
When I go out with my friends for a night on the town, I bump into the perfect candidate.
A guy from my past who kissed like a dream but took off before we could say goodbye.
The swoony, charming pro athlete is back in the city and he’s as ready to help me with my project as he is to win baseball games.
The next morning, I’m deliciously satisfied and I know I’ve chosen wisely.
But when he leaves again, I can’t stop wondering -- what if Mr. Right Now is actually Mr. Right?
And how do I get him back?
Mr. Right Now is one of three novellas in the Virgin Scorecard -- a collection of sexy, swoony romances between virgins and athletes that completes the bestselling RULES OF LOVE series. This collection also includes a short story in the baseball world.
