He’s the grumpy hockey captain with a bad boy reputation, and now I’ve been assigned as his tutor for the rest of the semester.


The pressure is on in my senior year to wow hockey recruiters no matter what. My only outlet was casual dating until the latest fling makes a scene in the middle of my team’s locker room, and gets me in trouble with the coach. And that’s without him even knowing I’m about to flunk an elective.

So I have a Step one, swear off girls for the rest of the season. Step two, do some overtime school work with the help of a tutor.

Except said tutor is about to ruin the whole plan.


Just a few months left of college and I’ll officially start my career as an author. But before that, I’m in desperate need of more income to move away from my fatphobic roommates. So I ramp up my tutoring gig, and start working on a hockey romance idea that I can self-publish quickly. There’s only one I know nothing about hockey—or real life romance.

Insert Aran. Not only I’ll get paid for tutoring him, but maybe he can also teach me about the sport. All I have to do is remember that a real-life romance is off the table.

The overtime tutoring sessions start getting less academic, but can we beat the ticking clock?

Overtime is a dual POV, closed door hockey college romance with mild language, and heat without spice. It’s the second book in the St. Cloud Hockey trilogy, set six years after book one, and can also be read as a standalone.

Summer nights can be full of surprises.

As a single, unemployed, and unapologetic twenty-five year old mess, I came to the Hamptons this summer for one reason—to focus on myself and work out my quarter-life crisis. I didn’t come here planning to sneak into a private party and meet a handsome stranger.

I definitely didn’t come here expecting for that stranger to be Preston Rhodes—billionaire and superstar quarterback for the Manhattan Mambas.

And that’s not even the crazy part.

He asked me to be his pretend girlfriend for a week while his family is in town. He needed a date for his sister’s wedding, and I’d never turn down the opportunity to be spoiled by a rich man.

The only thing is, Preston’s not very good at pretending.

Now instead of discovering myself, I’m spending the week discovering what life would be like with him. Instead of focusing on me, I’m focusing on how he looks at me, how he touches me, how he wants me.

But now that neither one of us is faking it, I only hope that we can hold on to what we have through the bright lights and summer nights.

Dad never told me I couldn’t fall for one of his hockey players.
But he never said I could, either…

I’ve followed the Aspenridge College hockey team for years, even when I wasn’t a student. Now that I’ve transferred here, I have up close and personal access to the team, including their parties.

Intending to shed my wallflower status, it’s only natural to attend the first party of the season. Reputed playboy Cody McGuire takes me under his wing, and when he finds out I genuinely love his favorite sport, his interest is piqued.

I don’t mean to keep running into him on campus, but it happens. And when he tells me to prove I’m not like the usual women he has in his bed, what comes out of my mouth is asking him to teach me things. Sexual things. He thinks I’m kidding at first, but I’m not. What better way to learn more skills in the bedroom than from the king of the player’s club?

So long as he doesn’t find out my dad is his new coach….

The first time Ryder James broke my heart, I was fifteen and sad.
An angsty, opposites attract, forced proximity standalone romance from bestselling author C.W. Farnsworth.

The second time he broke my heart, I was eighteen and jaded.

Both times, I fell for him effortlessly. Falling is easy.

Our landings are just hard. Painful.

We were a sad song with a slow melody. Wildflowers with paper petals. Hidden letters with visible tears. A beautiful tragedy.

Except tragedies have endings. Our story just…stopped.

Seven years later, I still have more questions than answers. Questions I’m too proud to ask after almost a decade of silence. Answers he refuses to share, no matter how much time we’re forced to spend together.

Everything’s changed…except how I feel about him. And the recurring moments when I’m certain Ryder hasn’t forgotten our past either.

Can you forget your first?

Or are they destined to keep breaking your heart…over and over again?
