Itâs true. Iâm not what most people would call âprettyâ and, well, high school was rough. Fast forward ten years and life is good.... Until a bunch of jerks think itâs hilarious to put the âbutterfaceâ (AKA me) on a wedding Kiss Cam with the hottest guy ever - and that old humiliation hits hard. I recognize him immediately. The hottest cop in Waterbury and totally out of my league. But then he kisses me. And we totally forget the room, the crowd, everything. Then he tells everyone weâve been dating for months. Soon everything starts to feel too real, from adorable fights over ânecessaryâ tools to fix my broken porch to surviving a free-for-all dinner with his six siblings to picking up where our last kiss left off. But thereâs something heâs not telling me about why heâs really hanging around, and Iâm pretty sure it has to do with my mob-connected brothers. Because this is not a make-over story, and Cinderella is only a fairy tale....

One night and my life completely jumped the tracks. Actually, a pack of expired condoms did that - the rest of the night was pretty amazing. Open bar at a friend's wedding. Bad dancing all around. Stupid trivia bets with my fellow Ice Knights hockey teammates. And Tess Gardner. The factoid-blurting, fandom-T-shirt-wearing, no-I-donât-want-a-relationship-with-you woman makes me forget for one night that Iâm a man with a routine and my future all mapped out. Still, it sucked she left our room without giving me her number.Â Fast-forward to when she tracks me down and tells me I'm going to be a daddy. Jaw, meet floor. Now I've insisted that she and our little peach pit move in with me after her apartment floods. She agrees as long as thereâs no funny business, no shotgun weddings, and no more nights spent naked together. Sounds easy enough. I was prepared for the late-night runs for more pickles and peanut butter, but I wasnât prepared for Tess. Sheâs like a glitter rainbow sparkling in the middle of my all-neutrals house, messing up my rigid schedule and turning my world upside down. What the hell do we do next?

The only thing about me thatâs a size zero is the filter on my mouth. Iâve got a big personality, a big rack, and a big number on the scale. And Iâm perfectly fine with that. But when some random guy suggests I might not be eating alone if Iâd ordered a salad instead of a hamburger Iâm shocked silent, which is a feat, trust me. That brings us to one sexy fireman named Frankie Hartigan. Heâs hot. Heâs funny.... And heâs just apologized for being late for our âdateâ then glared at the fat-shaming jerk. Next thing I know, heâs sitting down and ordering himself dinner. I have no problem telling him I donât need a pity date...unless of course itâs to my high school reunion next week. Oops where did that last bit come from? And what do I do now that heâs said yes?!Â Because this is no make-over story, and I think Frankie is using me for something. I just have to figure out what.... Each book in the Hartigans series is STAND-ALONE: Butterface Muffin Top

Best-selling author Avery Flynn will have you laughing out loud with this fun, steamy take on the wedding genre!Â I canât believe I have to go home to Nebraska for my sisterâs wedding. Iâm gonna need a wingman and a whole lot of vodka for this level of family interaction. At least my bestie agreed heâd man up and help. Too bad he had to catch a different flight than me. Then, his plane got delayed. And finally - because bad things always happen in threes - instead of my best friend, his evil twin walks out of the airport.Â If you looked up doesnât-deserve-to-be-that-confident, way-too-hot-for-his-own-good billionaire in the dictionary, youâd find a picture of Grady Holt. Heâs awful. Horrible. The worst - even if his butt looks phenomenal in those jeans. Ten times worse? I told my family I was bringing myÂ boyfriendÂ with me.... Now I have to spend the week pretending to be madly in love with the big jerk. Ugh, and share a bedroom. Itâs only gonna be a week. I can last that long without killing him or blowing my cover. Maybe. A whisper of a prayer. Oh God, this week just might kill me or I might kill him - either way, this is not going to end well.

I never meant to say a word, not one single word. But I did. And now, because of my blog, everyone knows that Ice Knights hockey star Ian Petrov's best friend and fellow player is actually his half brother - hello, hockey Hall of Famer dad who couldn't keep his jeans zipped. That wouldn't be such a big deal if Ian knew. He didn't, and boy howdy is he pissed. And who is he most mad at? Oh sure, he's upset with his dad and former best friend/brother from another mother, but most of his ire is with me. It's definitely a case of hating the messenger. And what could make it worse? How about the two of us being trapped together in a remote cabin after a massive blizzard. Neither of us can leave. Just us, the snow, his resentment, and OMG sexual tension so thick it would take a snowplow to break through it. I've got to get out of here before I do something even dumber than I've already done and kiss the sexy snarly grump with his misplaced anger and perfect pecs. That would be the worst, the absolute worst. That's why I'm not going to do it. Nope. Really. So why can't I stop imagining what it would be like?

Workaholic billionaire Sawyer Carlyle may have joked he needed a buffer from their marriage-obsessed mom, but he didn't need a waiting room filled with candidates to further distract him. (Thanks, bro.) But when a sexy job applicant shoos his mom and the socialite in tow out of his office, Sawyer sees the genius of the plan. And the woman. In fact, Miss Clover Lee might just get the fastest promotion in history, from buffer to fake fiancÃ©.... This free spirit might look like hot sunshine and lickable rainbows, but she negotiates like a pit bull. Before Sawyer knows what hit him, he's agreed to give up Friday nights for reality TV, his Saturdays for flea markets (why people buy junk still baffles him), his Tuesdays and Thursdays for date nights (AKA panty-losing opportunities if he plays his cards right). And now she wants lavender bath salts and tulips delivered every Monday? Yup, she's just screwing with him. Good thing she's got this non-negotiable six-weeks-and-she's-gone rule, or Sawyer may have just met his match.... Contains mature themes.
