Meet Me in the Middle by Kelly Collins
Everyone knows sinfully sexy Miles Stevenson’s face. He’s the most famous movie star in the world… and every woman’s dream. When he unexpectedly pulls perfect stranger and grade schoolteacher Rachel Parks in for a passion-filled kiss, he ends up doing more than fooling the press.
Rachel is used to the opposite sex throwing themselves at her. What she isn’t used to are handsome strangers pulling her aside and covering her mouth with burning hot lips. But she decides to play along with Miles’s little game.
Incompatibility screams at every turn, but passion paves the way. Sometimes the road to each other is far too long, but the path is shorter if you meet in the middle. Will Miles’s worldwide fame get in the way of Rachel’s under-the-radar life, or will they find what they didn’t know they were looking for… each other?

She’ll be perfect—easy to control and no chance she’ll demand things I can’t give. It’s the perfect solution. All I have to do is keep myself from developing feelings for my new bride. I can’t afford it. The business demands my full attention. However, there’s just something about her…

Almost Home by Kimmie Easley
When you know you’re in love with the right person, and you know why, and you know it’s for all the right reasons, and you know they’re all good…
Well, you just know.
Or at least you think you do.
That’s not me.
I don’t recognize good. It’s too few and far between. It’s been that way my whole, entire life.
And, unfortunately for him, it’s also become Avette’s new version of normal, thanks to his unyielding love for me. My husband’s blinded to all of the yuck and disgust that fucks me up from the inside out.
It’s a talent or a gift. Maybe a curse. Whatever it is, it’s not one I possess.
But the worst part is I see what he wants.
He wants me to feel the same. To see him in the same light. But that’s not how my heart was created. I can’t feel or love the same way that he does.
Life doesn’t mean the same to me as it does to him.
No, not until my entire world changed.
Hi, I’m Trini Baker, and I’m an addict.
