Falling For The Cowboy By: Kennedy Fox

Falling For The Cowboy (Bedtime Reads #3)
Author: Kennedy Fox
Publisher: Kennedy Fox
Published: January 2019
Format: Paperback
Pages: 260
Rating: 4/5
Never trust a man who wears nothing more than a cowboy hat and ripped jeans who asks if you’d like to save a horse and ride a . . . well, you get the picture. 

That should’ve been enough for me to walk away. 

I’ve been warned on several occasions about southern men—with their sexy accents, charming manners, and the ability to easily get any woman in bed—which is something I’ll be avoiding. 

Being a professional photographer has many perks—traveling around the world, calling all the shots, and working with subject matter that isn’t bad to look at—but Colton Langston with his washboard abs and baby blue eyes, could care less about my current project. He’s trouble, I know it, and he’s determined to make me work for every single photo. When I’m forced into riding lessons, I get way more than I ever bargained for, and by the time my trip is over, I’m in too deep.

Being with him was thrilling, but falling for him was unpredictable. 
And ignoring him will be impossible.

**This is a complete STANDALONE novel — filled with plenty of humor, steam, & romance! 18 & up only due to explicit sexual content, language, and adult content.**

Falling For The Playboy By: Kennedy Fox

Falling For The Playboy (Bedtime Reads #2)
Author: Kennedy Fox
Publisher: Createspace
Published: November 2018
Format: Paperback
Pages: 256
Rating: 4/5
Never trust a man who gets paid to take off his clothes for a living and then uses it as a pick-up line to get girls in bed with him.  

That should’ve been enough for me to call in sick that day. 

I’ve worked with male cover models like him before and they’re all the same—smooth-talking, sexy as sin, egotistical know-it-alls who think they’re God’s gift to women—all traits I know to steer clear of.  

Assisting authors comes with many perks—reading on the job, using my organizing skills on a daily basis, drinking coffee by the gallons—but Maverick Kingston barges into my life and demands more than I can handle.  

When we’re forced to road trip across the country together, he pushes every boundary I have and rearranges my thoughts on playing it safe. And when he “accidentally” drops his towel, he makes it very clear what he’s offering and proves he’s packing more than abs of steel under his clothes. 

Working with him was brutal, but falling for him was unexpected. 

And playing by the rules will be impossible. 

This is a complete STANDALONE novel — filled with plenty of humor, steam, & romance! 18 & up only due to explicit sexual content, language, and adult content.

Falling For The Bad Boy By: Kennedy Fox

Falling For The Bad Boy(Bedtime Reads #1)
Author: Kennedy Fox
Publisher: Createspace
Published: November 2017
Format: Paperback
Pages: 244
Rating: 4/5
Never trust a man who answers the door wearing nothing more than a pair of low-cut jeans and a panty-melting smirk.

That should've been my first sign.

I write about guys like him for a living — sexy and charming, yet reluctant to get into a serious relationship. His body screams sex appeal, but his condescending personality makes him a classic f*ckboy.

And I want nothing to do with that.

Writing romance novels comes with its perks — traveling, meeting new people, creating characters from the voices in my head — but Ethan Rochester enters my life and rearranges my preconceived notions about writing what inspires you.

Meeting him was fate, but falling for him was inevitable.
And forgetting him will be impossible.

**This is a complete STANDALONE novel — filled with plenty of humor, steam, & romance! 18 & up only due to explicit sexual content, language, and adult content. Previously published as My Week with the Bad Boy by Brooke Cumberland & Lyra Parish.**

Every. Single. Day. 

Enter Grey, the injured star quarterback with amazing hair and a foolproof plan: if Liv joins the football team as his temporary replacement, he'll make sure she gets a spot on the softball team in the Spring.
