RELEASE BLITZ: Cocky Player By Stacey Lynn

Cocky Player, an all-new standalone sports romance from Stacey Lynn is now live!

Like most guys I have a type— she wasn’t mine. Not at all.

The angelic beauty on the dance floor has innocence written all over her. But I can’t

stay away. And when she runs from me, leaving me wanting more, I can’t get her out

of my head.

Turns out finding her won’t be too hard. My mystery virgin is the new marketing

assistant for the Rough Riders Football team. And the owner’s daughter.

She wants to lose her virginity and she’s come to me for one thing, and one thing

only. I’ll gladly help her out, but we have to be careful no one discovers us.

The last thing I need is for my boss to find out I’ve been teaching his baby girl all my

dirtiest plays.

But I didn’t get to be MVP by playing by the rules.

When Rivals Love by J.L. Beck & C. Hallman is releasing soon!! Preorder today!



I thought I knew the truth, but I didn’t.=

Secrets surround me, every aspect of my life was a lie.

The Bishop brothers are the only beacon of light in my dark world. They’re the only ones that can protect me, the only ones that truly care.

Finally I have the leverage I need to escape my father’s clutches, to fight back, but when the truth comes out, and the puzzle pieces of our pasts start to come together…

I’m left wondering if there will ever be a future for the Bishop’s and me?


We couldn’t watch her marry a man she doesn’t love.

We had to do something, even if it was drastic and completely reckless.

Loving a Lockwood is forbidden, taboo, wrong in so many ways, but we don’t care about what our father or anyone else thinks.

All we care about is Harlow.

She belongs with us and we’ll do everything in our power to keep her safe… everything to free her from the hold her family has on her.

To us she’s not just a Lockwood, and we’re not Bishops stuck in the same vicious cycle of hate and love.

We’ll get our happily ever after no matter the price.

**This is book three in the series and cannot be read as a standalone. You MUST read the first two books in the series to read this one**

“I have an idea.” Oliver is the first to break the silence. 

“Well, what is it?” Banks asks impatiently. 

“We could bring you to our father…” His voice trails off, and I wonder if he’s being serious or not. 

“Your father would let you bring me to your house?” I ask, trying to hide the surprise from my voice. 

Sullivan shrugs, “What’s the worst he could do? Tell us to leave? We can’t let you near your father right now, so the next best thing would be our father.” 

“Maybe he can piece the missing pieces of your puzzle together?” Oliver adds. 

“Or he could be a huge prick and make things ten times worse,” Banks mutters under his breath. Oliver and Sullivan look at him, their features hardening. 

“You aren’t helping.” 

Banks lifts his hands as if to say he’s innocent. “Look I’m not trying to be a negative nelly here. I want Harlow to get all the answers she needs just as much as you both do, but dad isn’t going to take well to us bringing a Lockwood home.” Our gazes meet as he says the next words, “Last names don’t mean shit to us, but dad still sees her as the enemy and I don’t want her caught in his crosshairs.” 

To many I might be weak, but I am mighty, and if I want answers I may have to cross bridges that shouldn’t be crossed. I may have to do things that I shouldn’t do, but I’ll do what I need to do. No one is going to dictate what happens in my life anymore. 

“Let’s do it.” 

“Seriously?” Banks runs a hand through his hair as if he’s agitated. Was he not expecting me to go along with this? 

“Yes, I want answers. Your dad has some. Let’s do it. What’s the worst that could happen?” 

“Kay, I’ll make arrangements and tomorrow we’ll visit our parents,” Oliver announces as if it’s final to his brothers. 

Banks leaves the room a moment later and Sullivan walks over to the bed and crawls into the vacant spot left beside me. 

“Is he going to be okay? I ask. I kind of want to chase after him but know he needs the space. 

“He’ll be fine. He’s just worried what our dad will say or try to do to you.” 

I nod, understanding completely. 

“Our father won’t touch you. Not if he wants to live.” Oliver’s words have a cold edge to them, and I shiver wondering if he really means that. Would he, and his brothers go against their parents for me? Would they risk it all for me? 

I guess we’ll find out. 



J.L. Beck & C. Hallman are an author duo who love reading, writing, and coffee. After meeting by happenstance they decided to write a book together, which later turned into many, many more. When they aren’t writing or plotting their next book, they’re playing mom and wife. They both share a love for dark romance, and enjoy a happily ever after as much as the next reader.

He’s happy to playact being a couple to save her from a pushy admirer. Fay’s beautiful, successful and smart, and if he’s being honest, Oliver has always had a bit of a thing for her.

Maybe more than a bit.

Geeking out over architectural details is Oliver and Fay’s shared love language, and soon they’re touring pricey real estate across Upper Manhattan as the terribly faux but terribly charming couple Darling and Olly.

In all their years as wary mutual acquaintances, Oliver Huang never expected Fay Liu to be so happy to see him. But here she was, in this showcase home on the Mount Morris Park historic house tour, flashing Oliver a huge, almost desperate smile. She stepped right up to kiss him heartily on the lips, and in the process knocked his glasses askew, smudging them.
Then as he reached up to adjust them, she commandeered his arm and linked hers through his.
Fay was a fellow urban planner and, most importantly, she was a partner at Milieu. They had mutual friends. He’d even sent her firm a CV, and had finally received a follow-up from one of her partners expressing interest just that morning. For a fuzzy moment, he wondered if she was here, had sought him out directly, to arrange the interview. Still, he hadn’t expected Fay to be quite so warm and, well, handsy? lipsy?—was that a word?—about greeting a potential employee.
And wasn’t she married?
But she gripped him more tightly and snuggled into his side. She felt good tucked into him. So, he allowed himself to relax, to enjoy touching another human body again, to almost hug someone, to feel needed, and wanted, and seen.
It was such a fleeting, wonderful connection. Fleeting, because in less than a minute, he understood what this was.
A man clomped up to them and scowled at the picture Oliver and Fay presented, standing in the upper hallway of the brownstone, looking for all the world like a pair of proud new homeowners.
Such a lovely illusion.
