    Never play a game
    you can’t win.

    For Cain Kent, that rule is golden. Losing is not in his vocabulary, and up until
    now, everything has come easy. Football, school, girls … his charm-laced ego
    may just be bigger than Texas itself.

    The competition he started freshman year with his friends, to make ten notches
    each in their bedposts by graduation day, is practically in the bag. One more
    to go, and then it’s off to college fame and eventually, the big time.
    Attachments aren’t something he wants to form, but when the quiet new girl
    challenges him in front of his classmates, his curiosity is peaked. She would
    be the perfect final score, and what fun to break her in the process.

    Too bad Harper Posy has no intention of being just another warm body,
    especially to the bad boy quarterback. Even if he does quote Forster and Huxley
    when no one is listening. An aspiring author herself, Cain and his hidden soft
    side are dangerous to her heart. She’s seen men ruin her mother’s dreams time
    and again, and she’s determined to fly far away as soon as she has that diploma
    in her fist.

    But as the school year’s end looms closer, both realize they didn’t quite
    understand the rules to begin with. Is winning a dirty bet worth the gamble
    when the stakes, or the other’s heart in this case, are so high?

    Harper is the one girl who isn’t up for playing games. And she just might make
    Cain lose. Everything.

    He’s the bad boy … but I’m the one breaking all the
    rules.
    I’ve always been the quintessential good girl. I don’t just follow the
    rules — I write them. As an advice columnist, I’m always telling people how
    to not screw up their lives.
    So you’d think I’d know better than to bang some random guy in a bar
    bathroom.
    Nope. Apparently not.
    Now I’ve got even bigger problems, though. Because it turns out that
    wasn’t just some random guy. It was Tyler Grant. Rich. Playboy.
    Devastatingly gorgeous. Oh, and the publisher of my new dating advice
    book.
    All my instincts are telling me to run like hell. It’s what I’d advise
    anyone else to do.
    Nope. I’ve had a taste, and I’m hooked.
    Now I’m calling him at ungodly hours and showing up at his house drunk
    and begging for sex and tacos. In other words, breaking every rule in my own
    damn book.
    Of course, you don’t have to be an advice columnist to know a bad boy
    and a good girl are never going to work out. Someone’s going to get their heart
    broken.
    And my guess? It isn’t going to be him.

    Happy Cover Reveal Casey Diam! Keeping Her Close

    Title: Keeping Her Close
    Author: Casey Diam
    Genre: Romantic Comedy
    Cover Design: Jersey Girl Design
    Release Date: August 14, 2018

    When a heart is broken, it withdraws, shielding itself
    from further pain, but also from further life.
    Brandon Kuvat gave up on love ten years ago—the year he was set to
    become a dad. A wealthy playboy pilot, he still sees plenty of action, but he’s
    not the man he once was. Or the man he wishes he could be. The first time he
    encounters Jordan, he knows immediately she is different. He also knows hurting
    her is inevitable. Still, he can’t stay away, even if it means he’ll have to
    settle for a friendship—but only for as long as that can last.

    Wounded by a disastrous relationship, Jordan Artesian has put
    her whole focus on work, nurturing her dreams of owning her own fashion line.
    But though her creativity blooms, the rest of her is still frozen, that is,
    until Brandon charms his way into her life. He’s irritating, but
    somehow…intriguing. She hates that she finds his charming and challenging
    ways attractive. He isn’t supposed to make her feel things she’s given up on
    feeling.

    For these two, friendship will never be enough—not when she’s what he needs to
    heal, and he’s what she needs to feel again. But can they find their way down
    the path of friendship to truly love and trust one another, or will they only
    destroy each other’s hearts all over again?

    Excerpt
    He handed her a glass and clicked his to hers. “To happiness and beautiful people.”
    “And official first dates,” she added.
    When she finished her glass before him, he poured her another.
    “Is there a drinking contest I don’t know about?” he asked.
    “No. I need it. I just remembered where we’re going, and I need to relax.” She frowned as she remembered her dates with Todd. They were always awkward. She was always the outsider with his smart lawyer friends, and tonight would be the same with Brandon. She wouldn’t know anyone. This was Brandon’s lifestyle and friends, and she was just an accessory.
    “You shouldn’t be nervous. You’re with me,” he soothed, taking her free hand in his. His touch warmed her body. “It’ll be fun. I promise.” He kissed the back of her hand, causing her lower abdomen to flutter at the softness of his lips. No, don’t do that, a small voice in her head squeaked. Tension spread out from his hand still connected with hers.
    She swallowed champagne until a nice buzz settled over her. To letting go
    and starting over,
     she mentally toasted. Taking a deep breath, she
    relaxed into her seat and closed her eyes. “I feel it now. You need to get on
    my level.”
    He chuckled. “Oh, really? And which level are you on?”
    “Mmm, about level three and a half. Maybe four.”
    He laughed.
    “I’ll be there with you in a few.” He released her hand, picked up the bottle
    of champagne, and started to chug it. But then he stopped. “On a second
    thought, I shouldn’t.”
    “Why not?”
    “Because I can’t be tipsy and alone with you in that dress in here. I’m already too tempted as it is.”
