"He was everything I wanted, but the one I couldn't have."

Shane Ventana was hot, popular, mysterious, the ultimate bad boy back in high school and I loved him. But he didn’t know I existed. Then one day the impossible happened and he moved in. Sounds perfect, right?

Wrong! He took it out on me, but I fell in love with him anyway. He was right in the next room; I couldn’t help myself. And just when I thought things were perfect between us, he left.

But life likes to screw with me. It took me years to get over him, then one day I heard the words that made my heart start beating all over again--“Shane is coming”.

 "I'm face-down in forty glorious inches of well-endowed cake, seriously reassessing my life choices, when suddenly I hear it. The voice that launched a thousand teenage boy-band dreams. My #1 crush, Drew Delaney himself."

Ten years ago, Drew was boy-band royalty: the subject of a million teenage fantasies - and the guy next door. He was so far out of my league, I couldn't see him for stars, but now I'm back in town for our high-school reunion, guess who I run into but Mr. Right-Now himself...

Older. Hotter. And still sexy enough to make me forget about the glittery white frosting currently smeared across my chest.

Sparks are flying, and so are my panties, and soon, our trip down memory lane has taken a detour to 'oh my god, don't stop!'. Population: me.

But can I turn Mr. Right-Now into Mr. Forever? Or will crazed fans, vicious yoga moms, and three dozen flesh-toned popsicles (don't ask) doom our romance to the 'Where are they now?' section of MTV's greatest hits?

You'll be begging for a taste of Lila Monroe's new sexy, laugh-out-loud summer romance!

Last call! At the end of the night, a clean-cut hunk and a rebellious bartender act on their unlikely chemistry in this frisky standalone novel from the author of Eye Candy.

Davis: I’ve had my eye on Grace Buchanan for a while now. Unlike the bubbly blondes I usually date, the feisty, flame-haired bartender both intrigues and bewilders me. Something about Grace—the tattoos? the nose ring?—makes every part of me sit up and beg. There’s only one problem: She hates me. Trading insults and one-liners has become our M.O. But when Grace bets me that I can’t get a date with a non-blonde if my life depends on it, I’m determined to prove her wrong by landing the ultimate non-blonde: her.

Grace: I’m used to regulars hitting on me, and I’ve turned them all down, except for one: Davis Price. I like giving him a hard time, and he’s kind of cute in his suit and tie—if you’re into that kind of thing. Anyway, I don’t care how many blondes he takes home . . . until one of them sidles up to him in my bar. Nuh-uh. But after my little bet with Davis backfires, our first date lands us in the sack. So does the second. And the third. Neither of us wants more than the best sex of our lives. The trouble is, it’s not a question of what I want. It’s what I need. And what I need is Davis.
