Jasmine Taveras is the reason Sarge Purcell grabbed his six-string and bailed the hell out of New Jersey four years ago. She's the fuel for every song he's ever written-each one laced with bitter, hard-edged, hungry lust. Now, with his hugely successful band on temporary hiatus, Sarge is determined to prove to Jasmine that he's turned into every inch the man she's always needed... Men are slim pickings for a single factory girl in Hook, New Jersey...until tall, broad-shouldered hotness walks—or rather storms—into Jasmine's life. Sarge's return shouldn't affect her this way. He's her best friend's much younger brother, and the kind of rough, gritty, sexiness Jasmine has no right to taste for herself. Even if he lets her. But lust is a blinding, insatiable force. And when it crashes, it will take both Sarge and Jasmine down with it... Each book in the Made in Jersey series is STANDALONE: * Crashed Out * Thrown Down * Worked Up * Wound Tight

Contains bonus novella Crashing the Boards. Jealous boyfriends and glitzy parties can be a recipe for disaster. When the gorgeous yet controlling Cooper interrupts a party Izzy was paid to crash and almost ruins her career as a professional party crasher, Izzy kicks him to the curb. She learned early in life not to count on anyone, and she will not relinquish her independence, not even to a sexy-as-sin pro athlete who can melt her heart with one wink. As the Sockeyes hockey team opens their inaugural season in Seattle, Cooper finds himself minus a girlfriend and plus a surly teenaged nephew. Cooper doesn’t want to be a surrogate dad, he doesn’t want to play in Seattle, and he doesn’t want to be alone. He misses Izzy, but seeing her with other men at parties turns him every shade of green. Regardless, he wants her back, and he’s willing to change, if only she’ll give him a second chance. Aware of her precarious finances, Cooper makes an offer she can’t refuse by hiring her to be responsible for his nephew when he’s traveling with the team. Fearing Cooper isn’t capable of changing his control-freak ways, Izzy resists his efforts to turn their financial arrangement into a personal relationship. He needs a sweet, docile girlfriend, and Izzy cannot be that woman. Yet, when tragedy strikes, Izzy is there when Cooper needs her the most, and love has a way of getting what it wants, no matter the circumstances.

This is the boxed set of the first three books in the Samantha Wayland’s Crashing Series. This is a very sexy and slightly kinky romance series with no cheating, no cliffhangers, and all the HEA anyone could want. Crashing the Net Dumping gallons of lube on the new kid is just another day at the office for Alexei. He knows exactly who he is: a goalie on the ice, a prankster in the locker room, and a man who knows better than to share his private life with anyone. He’s let people in before and it’s taught him that if he can’t have what he really wants, it’s better to be alone. Mike is broke, bruised, and covered from head to toe in cheap lube. All he wants is to keep to himself and play for the Ice Cats. What he needs, though, is another matter entirely. Checking It Twice After four years with Alexei, there things Mike knows with absolute certainty: he loves Alexei, Alexei loves him, and Alexei gives the very best gifts. This Christmas is no exception, though Mike is having a hell of a time figuring out what, exactly, Alexei’s gift is. Alexei knows his gift this year is going to blow Mike’s mind, but in the meantime, it’s pretty hilarious watching Mike try to figure out what it is. Granted, Alexei does have a lot of surprises in store for Mike this week, and it sure as hell isn’t frankincense and myrrh. Changing the Rules Alexei and Mike have been together a long time. They’re getting married. They can go a few nights not sleeping next to each other, right? For the sake of the team, Alexei is going to try. Mike can’t stand not sleeping next to Alexei, and it turns out sleep deprivation makes him overthink things he wasn’t planning to think about at all until the off-season—like the fact they’ve been engaged for over a year and haven’t set a date.

Breaking barriers on the ice is just the start for a woman who craves so much more. Ranger Deacon can't believe his team's bad luck. First their season falls into a steep slump, then their number one goalie goes down with a knee injury. Morale is in the pits and the coach springs one outrageous development on them—a woman will be joining the team to finish out the remainder of the games. He's skeptical until he sees her play and loses a piece of his jaded heart in the process. Piper Darrow is a hockey prodigy, a goalie at the top of her game in the women's league. She's just finished a stellar year when the opportunity of a lifetime presents itself—becoming the first woman to play in the men's professional league. Plenty of obstacles stand in Piper's way, including acceptance from the fans, the players and even her own teammates. That, along with some hard hits from opponents, she can handle. It's the fierce desire she feels for Ranger that throws her for a loop. Playing a male-dominated sport is difficult enough without the additional challenge of falling for the captain of the team. Piper knows the score, is determined to get the job done, but can't help but wonder if there's more to Ranger than excellence on the ice.
