Guitarist of the worldfamous rock band The Devil’s Share, no one would
expect Jackson Cole to have a best friend who’s a girl, but his relationship with Bryan
Lawson is too special to endanger with sex…until a different girl—the waifish nine
yearold who claims he’s her father—makes Jacks realize all that truly
WILD. RECKLESS. IRRESPONSIBLE. A
hell. But one thing he’s never been called is “Dad”—until Child
Services shows up on his doorstep with a waifish nineyearold claiming he’s the father.
What’s a rock star to do? Call your best friend, who just happens to be super hot, funny,
and even more commitmentphobic than you, and beg her to help. Of course, now that his friend
is living in the same house, Jacks is finding it harder and harder to keep his hands to
breathtakingly handsome rock star, but after they met backstage at one of Jacks’s
concerts, she couldn’t stop texting him. He’s just the sort of person she could
imagine being with forever, except that, try as she might, she’s never managed to stay
interested in a relationship for more than three months. Now that Jacks is a dad, the stakes are
much higher. A breakup wouldn’t just ruin their friendship, it would destroy a little girl
who’s just learning to love. But maybe also the game has changed.

I’d booked it out of that club. As I reached the top of the stairs I heard Bryan’s
voice and Landry’s giggles. I glanced down at my watch; it was after midnight at
this point. I poked my head into her room. “Hello my beautiful girls. What are y’all

Play Nice (The Devil’s Share,
Rock a stadium. Bang a chick. Repeat. As lead singer of The
Devil’s Share, Dash Conner could get anything or anyone he wanted—until he
met Lexi Grant.
MONEY. FAME. WHISKEY. SEX.
For Dash Conner, lead singer of The Devil’s Share, everything he wanted was
his for the asking. Whiskey. Drugs. Money. Sex. But not Lexi Grant. For the first time since he
picked up a guitar, a girl was actually demanding he woo her. For a chance with her, Dash
would do that and more.
Lexi Grant was no groupie. Just because the
biggest rock star in the world smiled at her didn’t mean she had to fall into bed with
him—but it was going to be awfully hard to resist that impish smile and those tatted abs.
Surely one night of fun wouldn’t hurt anyone.
Unless that night
ends with a broken condom.
For Lexi and Dash, that’s just the
beginning. Add an overly affectionate pit bull, a missing guitarist, a house full of sorority girls, a
junkie exbandmate and an extreme aversion to Jäger, and it’s either a recipe for
disaster or true love.
Play Dirty (The Devil’s Share,
As bassist of the Devil’s Share, Smith James revels
in being the ultimate bad boy, until he meets a good girl…who likes it dirty.
PILLS. PAIN. LOSS. LOVE.
doesn’t need drugs. He just likes them a whole lot. And as bassist for the Devil’s
Share, they are easy to come by. So are the women. With a steady supply of both he
doesn’t have to think too hard about his past. But when a beautiful physician’s
assistant joins the tour, Smith can’t help but want…more.
After watching her high school boyfriend OD, there is no way Dylan Lawson is going to
fall for a rock star with a tenuous hold on sobriety, no matter how sexy his New Orleans drawl.
She’s been hired to do one job: monitor the health of the lead singer’s girlfriend
and her unborn baby. But once Smith flashes that sweet, vulnerable smile, Dylan can’t
help but want…more.
And more is what they’ll get. Love on
tour is never simple, and with a music festival in Smith’s hometown, a place he’s
avoided for years, near his illiterate, abusive, methaddled father, Smith is one bad night away
from a relapse. But with her heart already lost, Dylan is willing to do whatever is necessary to
save him—even play a little dirty.
