Six years later, they’re still best friends, sharing an apartment in Portland’s trendy Northwest District as they happily settle into adult life. But when Parker’s boyfriend dumps her out of the blue, she starts to wonder about Ben’s no-strings-attached approach to dating.

The sex is mind-blowing, and their friendship remains as solid as ever, without any of the usual messy romantic entanglements.

Loves steamy first dates, sizzling first kisses, and every now and then, that first sexy romp between the sheets. Comfy pants, sleepy Sundays, movie nights on the couch? Shudder. But when Julie gets assigned the hardest story of her career—a first-person account of that magical shift between dating and “I do”—she’ll need a man brave enough to give a total commitment-phobe a chance at more.<br /><br /> Normally, Mitchell Forbes would be exactly that man. A devastatingly hot workaholic who tends to stay in relationships for far too long, he should be the perfect subject for Julie’s “research.” But what Julie doesn’t know is that Mitchell is looking to cut loose for once in his life. And the leggy journalist notorious for avoiding love is exactly the type of no-strings fling he’s looking for. In other words, Mitchell is the polar opposite of what Julie needs right now.

That is, until he sets eyes on the gorgeous new waitress at The Darby Diner and suddenly Anthony's morning coffee is leaving him a whole lot more hot and bothered than usual. <br /><br />Though waitressing at The Darby isn't exactly Maggie Walker's dream job, it pays the bills and gives her time to work on her novel. Now if only she could stop fantasizing about gorgeous Anthony Moretti every time he sits down at her table, she'd really be in great shape. But when he needs her help identifying a criminal threatening The Darby-and Maggie recognizes her ex-husband-she fears her fresh start might be a pipe dream. Faster than a New York minute, Maggie and Anthony find themselves in one perilous pursuit that only gets hotter with each and every rule-breaking kiss.

Now all four novels—<i>After the Kiss, Love the One You’re With, Just One Night, </i>and <i>The Trouble with Love</i>—are together in one eBook bundle.<br /><br /> <b>AFTER THE KISS<br /></b><br /><b>“<i>After the Kiss</i> is a knock-your-stilettos-off, total page-turning treat that had me fan-girling up within the first chapter.”—<i>USA Today</i> bestselling author Mira Lyn Kelly</b><br /><br /> Julie Greene loves flings: first dates, first kisses, that first sexy romp between the sheets. But when Julie has to write an article about the magical shift between dating and “I do,” she’ll need a man brave enough to reform a total commitment-phobe. Normally, that man would be Mitchell Forbes, a devastatingly handsome workaholic who stays in relationships far too long. But Mitchell is looking to cut loose for once, and Julie’s exactly the type of no-strings fling he’s looking for. In other words, he’s the polar opposite of what she needs—and exactly what she <i>wants</i>.<br /><br /> <b>LOVE THE ONE YOU’RE WITH<br /></b><br /><b>“Spunky, flirty, and full of sass, <i>Love the One You’re With</i> is everything a romance should be!

She makes an exception for a joint article on dating with a gorgeous counterpart from the men’s magazine <i>Oxford</i>—and tries to tell herself she’s not instantly smitten. Jake Malone only agreed to this fluffy assignment because his playboy reputation makes his new editor nervous. But after just one date with snooty, sumptuous, sensational Grace, Jake starts taking this assignment a whole lot more seriously.<br /><br /> <b>JUST ONE NIGHT<br /></b><br /><b>“Sexy, sassy, and surprisingly sweet,&#xa0;<i>Just One Night</i> is a total page-turner!”—<i>New York Times </i>bestselling author Donna Alward</b><br /><br /> As <i>Stiletto</i>’s resident “sexpert,” Riley McKenna writes articles that are the magazine’s most read. But when Riley is forced to confront a long-hidden secret—that her own sexual experience is limited to one awkward college encounter—she calls in the favor of a lifetime. Sam Compton knows two things about his best friend’s little sister: She’s the woman for him, and she’s completely off-limits. Sam shouldn’t even consider Riley’s proposition. But after a one-night stand in the name of research, they learn firsthand that, with each other, there’s no such thing as just one night.<br /><br /> <b>THE TROUBLE WITH LOVE<br /></b><br /><b>“<i>The Trouble with Love</i> is a heartwarming read I devoured in one sitting and haven’t been able to stop smiling over since.”—<i>New York Times</i> bestselling author Violet Duke</b><br /><br /> Five years ago, Emma Sinclair was a blushing bride-to-be. Now she’s the ice queen of the Manhattan dating scene—and her latest article forces her to face the devilishly sexy guy who ditched her at the altar. After giving up everything for a pro soccer career, Alex Cassidy is hanging up his cleats and taking a shot at journalism . . . in the same city as his former fiancée. But Emma isn’t the innocent girl he remembers. She’s chic, sophisticated, and assertive—and she wants absolutely nothing to do with him. The trouble is, Alex has never wanted her more.

Doch als Olivia in dem abgelegenen Küstenstädtchen in Maine ankommt, muss sie feststellen, dass Paul Langdon kein bisschen so ist, wie sie sich ihn vorgestellt hat - sondern jung, attraktiv (trotz seiner Narben) und alles andere als erfreut, sie in seinem Haus zu haben. Paul hat nicht vor, Olivia mehr als nötig an sich heranzulassen. Doch sein Vater hat ihm ein Ultimatum gesetzt: Die neue Haushaltshilfe muss es drei Monate in seiner Gegenwart aushalten - oder Paul verliert sein Erbe. Und je mehr Zeit Paul und Olivia miteinander verbringen, desto schwerer fällt es ihm, die Mauern der Unnahbarkeit, die er um sich herum errichtet hat, aufrechtzuerhalten -<br/>

Purtroppo il suo compagno di corso è un ragazzo ricco e viziato. Ma del resto con i suoi piercing, gli occhi truccati di nero e l'abbigliamento goth neanche Stephanie è esattamente il tipo di Ethan Price. Probabilmente corre dietro a qualche biondina con le gambe lunghe e un fondo fiduciario.<br /> Mentre negli Hamptons inizia la stagione estiva, Ethan cerca disperatamente di far dimenticare a sua madre l'altolocata ragazza che gli ha spezzato il cuore. È un po' azzardato pensare a Stephanie come diversivo, ma con il giusto restyling e un maglioncino color pastello potrebbe andare. A lei l'idea di di recitare la parte della fidanzatina Barbie di Ethan non fa impazzire, ma l'alloggio gratuito e il lusso sono una bella tentazione.

I baci e le carezze inscenati per prendere in giro il popolo degli Hamptons finiscono per coglierli di sorpresa.

Description :  Redemption Series<br /><br /> Dall'autrice del bestseller&#xa0;L'unico sbaglio che rifarei mille volte<br /><br /> Quando Olivia Middleton abbandona il glamour di Park Avenue per una remota città costiera del Maine, tutti danno per scontato che l’abbia fatto per seguire il suo istinto altruista. Ma Olivia nasconde un segreto: lavorare in un’associazione che si occupa del recupero di veterani di guerra non è esattamente un atto di generosità, ma una penitenza. Il problema è che la persona che le viene affidata non è l’anziano triste e riconoscente che si aspettava di incontrare, ma un ventiquattrenne scostante che non ha alcuna intenzione di diventare lo strumento per la redenzione di Olivia. E soprattutto ha uno sguardo che paralizza.<br /> Paul Langdon non ha bisogno che uno specchio gli riveli di non essere più il quarterback che era prima della guerra. Sa che è diventato brutto dentro e fuori e ha deciso che farà di tutto per mantenere la forma di esilio che si è auto-imposto, anche a costo di perdere la sua eredità. Ma Paul non aveva fatto i conti con la splendida ventiduenne a cui è stato affidato, e che gli ricorda fin troppo tutto quello che ha perso e che non potrà mai più avere indietro. Più lei cerca di convincerlo ad abbassare le difese che si è costruito intorno, più è difficile riuscire a tenerla a distanza…<br /> Ora Paul e Olivia devono decidere: saranno in grado di aiutarsi a vicenda o sono perduti per sempre?<br /><br /> «Una storia ben costruita e che si legge velocissimamente.
