Excerpt of DEAREST CLEMENTINE, copyright 2014 Lex Martin
Gavin's grip is firm on either side of me as he ducks down to look into my eyes. Even though I lean back, I can feel his minty breath on my face.
"Clementine, I want to warn you." His voice is husky and deep. "I'm going to kiss you, and you're going to like it. A lot. But I want to be clear that I'm not going to sleep with you because I want you to respect me in the morning." His mouth lifts up in a wry smile. "This is simply one friend helping out another. Okay?"
Wait. Is he serious?
He must sense my apprehension because he rubs his thumb softly across my cheek. "It's just an exercise, to get you into your story. I promise."
I laugh, embarrassed, intrigued, and a whole lot turned on by the idea. He smiles again, but this time it's different. His eyes darken as his hands glide over my hips. My breath catches in my chest.
"Gavin, I don't think—"
He rests a finger over my lips. "I'm doing this in the name of academics. You need inspiration? You're looking at it. Now shut up and let me kiss you."
★A USA TODAY BESTSELLER★ I’ll just ignore Rider and those soul-searing looks he gives me every time I reach for the baby. He broke my heart three years ago… he won’t get a second chance.What’s worse than having Rider Kingston, the hotshot quarterback on your college football team, give you the big brushoff because he doesn’t want to get serious? You’d probably think living across the street from him, where you get a first-hand view of his hookups, right? That’s what I thought, until someone drops off a surprise baby, with a note pinned to her blanket that says one of those jocks—either Rider or one of his numbskull roommates—is the father.
I wouldn’t care one bit about their paternity problems--except my brother lives there, too… which means that adorable squawking bundle might be my niece, and there’s no way I’m leaving her unattended with those bumbling football players.
They need my help, even if they don’t know it yet. Once we solve this dilemma and figure out who the daddy is, I’m out.

★ USA Today bestselling author Lex Martin delivers a swoony, hot single dad romance about a college football player and the fake girlfriend he knows he should resist.
Football is the sole focus of my life—until a squawking baby girl, with a temper to rival my own, lands in my lap and flips my life upside down. I’ll never be Dad of the Year. Anyone will tell you that—except maybe Sienna, my sister’s beautiful former roommate, who somehow manages to make my broody ass laugh and sees something in me no one else does.
When Sienna offers to let me and my little princess move in with her, I’m not sure if it’s to help or because she wants revenge on my teammate and long-time rival, who broke her heart. Either way, I’m game, because I need to get my ex off my back, and Sienna doesn’t mind pretending to be my girlfriend.
Only neither of us is ready for the sexual tension that builds and the sparks that fly between us… or the consequences when they do.

I haven't always hated my brother's best friend, but Michael Oliver gets under my skin and brings out the worst in me. He knows how to push my buttons, and I relish pushing all of his. He betrayed my trust years ago, and I've made it my mission in life to aggravate him until he admits he was wrong.

What the hell do I know about raising a baby? Nothing. Not a goddamn thing.
Yet here I am, the sole guardian of my niece. I’d be lost if it weren’t for Katherine, the beautiful girl who seems to have all the answers. Katherine, who’s slowly finding her way into my cynical heart.
I keep reminding myself that I can’t fall for someone when we don’t have a future. But telling myself this lie and believing it are two different things.
When Brady shows up on a Harley, looking like an avenging angel—six feet, three inches of chiseled muscle, eyes the color of wild sage, and sun-kissed skin emblazoned with tattoos—I’m not sure if I should fall at his feet or run like hell. Because if I tell him what happened the night his family died, he might hate me.
What I don’t count on are the nights we spend together trying to forget the heartache that brought us here. I promise him it won’t mean anything, that I won’t fall in love.
I shouldn’t make promises I can’t keep.
Joey... I didn't exactly run away. I'd call it self-preservation. My escape plan almost worked. Except I left one thing behind. Logan Carter hijacked my heart, and now it's time to get it back. This time for good.
Logan... I'm not lying exactly… not about everything. Not about how much I miss my best friend Joey, and definitely not about how pissed I am that she left with hardly a goodbye. She's the last person I ever expected to ghost me, and her absence left a gaping hole in my chest.
When Joey Grayson steps off that bus, I know I'll do anything to keep her home, and that means being honest. But I'm not sure how to tell her my truths, when I'm living so many lies.

For the record, I’m not going to hook up with my boss.
I'm a lot of things—a screwup, a basket case, a flunky. But when I take a nanny job to be near my pregnant sister, I swear to myself I’ll walk the straight and narrow, which means I cannot fall for my insanely hot boss.
I don't want to be tempted by that rugged rancher. By his chiseled muscles or southern charm or the way he snuggles his kids at bedtime. Ethan Carter won't get the key to my heart, no matter how much I want him.
Between us, she's the last thing I need as I finalize my hellish divorce.
What sane man trying to rebuild his life wants a hot nanny with long, sexy hair, curves for miles, and a smart mouth? A perfectly kissable, pouty mouth that I shouldn't notice.
My focus is on my kids and my ranch, not the insufferable siren who sleeps in the room next to mine. It doesn't matter that she wins over my kids in a heartbeat or runs my life better than I do. Tori Duran is the one woman I can't have and shouldn't want, no matter how much I crave her.
I don’t care that Drew Merritt spent the last year transforming himself from grungy slob to sexy playboy. With messy, dirty blond hair and gorgeous eyes, his looks aren’t the problem.
His mouth is.
And the stupid things that come out of it.
But after an emergency strands us together, and he does his damnedest to take care of me…
Let’s just say there’s one thing we don’t clash on.
And it doesn’t involve talking.
I’ve despised Drew since I met him years ago. One weekend can’t change us that much, can it?
Spoiler alert: It doesn’t.
Except he left me a little keepsake.
And in nine months, I’ll have a surprise for Portland’s most notorious player.
Gabby è decisa a stargli alla larga, ma un giorno – durante una festa a cui si presenta solo per chiedere di abbassare la musica – una bambina viene ritrovata sul pianerottolo della casa di Rider, dove vive insieme ai compagni di squadra. Nessuno sa chi sia il padre, e nemmeno la madre, che però ha lasciato un biglietto in cui implica che la bambina è figlia di qualcuno di loro. Gabby sa cosa significa essere spedita da una famiglia affidataria all’altra, perciò – dato che in quella casa vive anche suo fratello e la bambina potrebbe essere sua nipote – decide di prende in mano la situazione e aiutare i giocatori di football a risolvere il dilemma.
Gabby e Rider passeranno sempre più tempo insieme e avranno modo di parlare del passato.
Non direi che sono proprio scappata: a ventidue anni sono troppo vecchia per farlo.
La chiamerei autoconservazione.
Ho un obiettivo: proteggere il mio cuore dal ragazzo della porta accanto. Lui non ha la più pallida idea che lo amo da tutta la vita, anche se ho sempre avuto un posto in prima fila davanti alla porta girevole della sua camera da letto.
Il mio piano di fuga ha quasi funzionato.
Eccetto per la cosa che non ho portato con me.
Logan Carter mi ha rubato il cuore e ora è il momento di andare a riprendermelo. Questa volta per sempre.
Non direi di aver mentito per tutto questo tempo, non su tutto.
Non su quanto mi manchi la mia migliore amica, e sicuramente non su quanto sono incazzato che lei se ne sia andata senza quasi dirmi addio.
Non avrei mai pensato di essere ignorato da lei, e la sua assenza mi ha lasciato un buco nel petto.
Quando Joey Grayson scende dall’autobus, so che farò di tutto per convincerla a restare, e questo significa scoprire la verità.
Ma non sono sicuro di come raccontarle le mie verità quando vivo con così tante bugie.
Per la cronaca, non uscirò con il mio capo.
Sono un sacco di cose: incasinata, una fallita e forse un caso umano, ma quando accetto un lavoro di babysitter per stare vicina a mia sorella, incinta, giuro a me stessa che righerò dritto, il che significa che non mi innamorerò del mio capo, sebbene sia sexy da impazzire.
Non voglio farmi tentare da un ruvido cowboy. Dai suoi muscoli cesellati, dal suo fascino del sud o dal modo in cui coccola i suoi figli quando è ora di metterli a letto. Ethan Carter non avrà la chiave del mio cuore, per quanto io possa desiderarlo.
Detto tra noi, non avrei bisogno di distrazioni, soprattutto mentre sto portando a termine una terribile trattativa di divorzio.
Quale uomo sano di mente, mentre sta cercando di riprendere il controllo della sua vita, potrebbe volere una tata attraente, incantevole e con la battuta pronta? Con labbra che pregano di essere baciate, anche se non lo dovrei notare.
Devo restare concentrato sui bambini e sul ranch, e non su quella bisbetica sirena che dorme nella stanza accanto alla mia. Non importa che abbia conquistato i bambini in un batter d’occhio o che riesca a gestire la mia vita meglio di me. Tori Duran è la donna che non posso avere, o che non dovrei desiderare, per quanto disperatamente io la brami.
