Where can I get my own version of Cash?? This man is the best!!

Not only is he sweet, caring, made for LT relationships, but he’s dirty talking and can I talk for a minute about his in the bedroom skills…YES!?! Is there a one-click option for this man because I need him yesterday.

Player and the Single Mom is not only an adorable book full of children, but it is also full of a hot, sweet man and a very overworked and tired mom. Who else can relate? Well, the overworked and tired mom part, yes.

Cash Young has always dreamed of a family and settling down with the perfect woman. When he meets Sera, even though she comes with three children of her own, he still sees the perfect woman. He convinces her to a vacation away from all of her stress and while he was always hoping for more after their brief affair, even he wasn’t prepared for the news that comes weeks later, but he was excited about it.

If Sera could pick a man to fall for it would be Cash, but her life isn’t easy. Her life comes with three children, a business that is barely hanging on by a thread, and lots of emotional baggage. While she would love to jump into things with Cash she isn’t sure she’s quite ready.

A story full of love, steamy moments, lots of family, and with a hero I want to one click right into my life.

When friends-with-benefits turns into friends-with-a-baby-on-the-way…

It’s supposed to be just a no-strings attached sex-fest with big, brooding, football player Cash Young. He is going to whisk me away for a week in the sunshine while my three kids spend time with their grandparents.

No one screaming, “Mom!” No tears. No absurd homework assignments or problems at the struggling bakery I own, Sugar Lips.

Nothing but cocktails and orgasms for days with a man I’ll never fall in love with.

It’s not that Cash isn’t a great guy, because he totally is. But he’s way too young for me, and way too country boy calm, with that slow drawl, and his insistence on calling me “ma’am.” He thinks it’s respectful, which it’s not. It’s infuriating. And while we’re friends, we’ll never be anything more than that, with a little hot, headboard-banging sex on the side.

Until two pink lines change everything and Cash wants me to go from single mom to Mrs. Sera Young.

But the biggest surprise of all may be that the unexpected idea has a certain, sexy ring to it…
