‘Savor’ by Kate Evangelista (P185)
Dakota Collins is a tough talking, eye-patch wearing, workaholic photography student. Why is she important? Well, maybe because she gets to spend an entire month with Vicious, only the sickest indie rock band out there.
She needed a subject for her Spring Showcase introspective in order to graduate. During a chance encounter at a club she’d been sent to cover for the Daily Gossip, their ironically named college paper, the features writer she usually teamed up with introduced her to the band—by accident. It involved a run in with a scary, bald bodyguard. Anyway, long story short, she signed a contract to take pictures of Vicious.
‘The Boyfriend Backtrack’ by Dawn Lanuza (P185)
"In movies, they call this bit a "montage': a series of shots edited into a sequence. In my case, it is a series of all the men I dated before I land in this very table, staring at a blue velvet box."
If they say that life flashes right before your eyes when you die, do you also get a flashback of your exes when your perfect boyfriend is proposing to you? At least that's the case for Regina Cortes. There's her dramatic high school boyfriend, her first college crush, the irresistible heartbreaker, and the ever-elusive one. By backtracking to her past, will Regina make it to "I Do"? Or will she just keep running away?
‘Once Upon a Player’ by Agay Llanera (P185)
Gorgeous college senior Val Fabian is a player in every sense of the word. She's the star spiker of her university's volleyball team, and she never runs out of dates. But it seems that this year, she has finally been bitten by the commitment bug. She sets her sights on an unexpected target—the unassuming yet ultra-cute Jake Clementia. Val is used to getting what she wants and is sure she'll snag him before graduation. But in the process of winning his heart, she is sideswiped by a surprise move that sends her tumbling from her pedestal.
‘Tame the Kitten’ by Bianca Mori (P185)
Kit Torres can't believe her awful luck when she is assigned to babysit a motorcycling superstar for her boss. But sexy sparks fly when he teaches her all about the finer aspects of control. Can Kit keep her cool when the race starts to heat up?
Fab Magnani lives on the edge of disaster—he makes a good living out of it as a pro racer. Will his instincts for squeezing out of danger serve him when he comes face to face with a Puerto Rican spitfire who takes an instant dislike to him?
‘The Kitchen When It Sizzles by’ Chrissie Peria (P185)
Olivia Nadal is an almost perfect girl with an almost perfect life. She has stunning good looks, an exciting job that pays well, men lining up to date her, and a homey little condo she calls her own. The only thing keeping her from perfection is her utter inability to cook.
Enter Nate Olivarez, a hotshot chef who's filling in for Olivia's cooking instructor. Sparks fly when they meet, but a fling with the visiting hottie is the last thing Olivia needs. But as things keep heating up in the kitchen, she can't help but wonder: Can things work out between her and Nate? Or is the sizzle all set fizzle?
‘Submission Moves by Camilla Sisco (P185)
Well-educated, opinionated, and liberal Rose Shannon has nothing in common with the rough-hewn and uber-macho Niccolo Rossi. Nothing, dammit! Except maybe for that one ill-advised and insanely hot night in Vegas she can't seem to forget.
Handsome and he knows it, prized MMA fighter Nick Rossi works hard for what he wants. But he never had to work hard for a woman before until a snarky feminist with a huge chip on her shoulder came along. The baffingly infuriating and irresistible Rose spurns him at every turn but he's not backing down. He knows that sooner or later she will have to submit because the attraction between them is too strong to withstand.
Nick may be undefeated in the cage but, in a battle of wills, he will find that Rose can more than hold her own.
