One Night Pass

THEY SAY REVENGE SEX IS SO MUCH MORE FUN… The love of my life just asked me to marry him. I should be the happiest woman in the world. Except. I can’t forget that he cheated on me. How does he get to have me as a prize when he took my love for granted? My mama says I should let it go and just be happy because men will be men. Using that logic, women should be women and act on our carnal desires and impulses. Even if we hurt the men who love us. That’s what men have been doing for ages. While women are expected to forgive and continue to love them no matter what. Maybe I don’t want to just forgive. Maybe I want to get even. Today I met NFL star, Michael Carson, this sinfully delicious man who only wants one night with me. And maybe it’s time for a little poetic justice before I get to my happily ever after… Recently engaged, Monica Charles still reeling from her man’s betrayal is hired to cater NFL star Michael Carson’s party for the weekend. Excited and ready for the biggest job of her career, what she isn’t prepared for is to be tantalizingly tempted by the sexy athlete, who only wants one night with her. **THIS IS A PREQUEL OF SORTS TO THE ENDGAME TRILOGY**

The Other Side of the Game

ALL HE KNOWS IS THE GAME, SHE TAUGHT HIM THERE’S MORE. Zeke Powers, the best catcher in the Major Leagues, has been reckless too many times and is in danger of losing his baseball contract without the help of his sexy publicist, Jade Maxwell. The woman he can’t (and doesn’t try to) resist. Jade believes she has what it takes to change Zeke’s bad-boy reputation if she can just get him to be more open and believe that his personal triumphs are bigger than the game. Recently divorced from an unfaithful husband, Jade is also wary of their alluring, soulful chemistry that Zeke is temptingly insistent on exploring. Always straightforward, Jade makes it clear to Zeke she doesn’t mix business and pleasure, especially with a handsome and charismatic athlete who has never been seen with the same woman twice. Undeterred by Jade’s reticence, he knows it’s only a matter of time before she succumbs to their magnetic attraction. After all, Zeke didn’t beat all odds to have a dream career as a professional ballplayer without persistence and patience. And Jade Maxwell is so worth the wait.

One Night Pass

THEY SAY REVENGE SEX IS SO MUCH MORE FUN… The love of my life just asked me to marry him. I should be the happiest woman in the world. Except. I can’t forget that he cheated on me. How does he get to have me as a prize when he took my love for granted? My mama says I should let it go and just be happy because men will be men. Using that logic, women should be women and act on our carnal desires and impulses. Even if we hurt the men who love us. That’s what men have been doing for ages. While women are expected to forgive and continue to love them no matter what. Maybe I don’t want to just forgive. Maybe I want to get even. Today I met NFL star, Michael Carson, this sinfully delicious man who only wants one night with me. And maybe it’s time for a little poetic justice before I get to my happily ever after… Recently engaged, Monica Charles still reeling from her man’s betrayal is hired to cater NFL star Michael Carson’s party for the weekend. Excited and ready for the biggest job of her career, what she isn’t prepared for is to be tantalizingly tempted by the sexy athlete, who only wants one night with her. **THIS IS A PREQUEL OF SORTS TO THE ENDGAME TRILOGY**

The Other Side of the Game

ALL HE KNOWS IS THE GAME, SHE TAUGHT HIM THERE’S MORE. Zeke Powers, the best catcher in the Major Leagues, has been reckless too many times and is in danger of losing his baseball contract without the help of his sexy publicist, Jade Maxwell. The woman he can’t (and doesn’t try to) resist. Jade believes she has what it takes to change Zeke’s bad-boy reputation if she can just get him to be more open and believe that his personal triumphs are bigger than the game. Recently divorced from an unfaithful husband, Jade is also wary of their alluring, soulful chemistry that Zeke is temptingly insistent on exploring. Always straightforward, Jade makes it clear to Zeke she doesn’t mix business and pleasure, especially with a handsome and charismatic athlete who has never been seen with the same woman twice. Undeterred by Jade’s reticence, he knows it’s only a matter of time before she succumbs to their magnetic attraction. After all, Zeke didn’t beat all odds to have a dream career as a professional ballplayer without persistence and patience. And Jade Maxwell is so worth the wait. Check out the other book in this series of sexy baseball players and the women who love them: Caught In The Game by Cassie Verano **Both stories are standalone and don’t have to be read in any particular order.**
