Hate the Game (Love Games #1) by Winter Renshaw Date Released: September 25, 2019
About Hate the Game Talon Gold is a lot of things: good at football, bad at love. Obsessed with scoring, refuses to play by the rules. Cruel. Relentless. Brilliant. Intoxicatingly attractive. 
Despite his demanding reputation and propensity for being the most arrogant a-hole ever to strut Pacific Valley University’s picturesque campus, everyone wants a piece of him: coaches, scouts, and pretty little campus fangirls with pouty lips and perfect top knots. 
But Talon … he only wants a piece of me. 
And four straight years of infuriating rejection means I’m almost positive he’d take a night with me over a national championship trophy. 
But I’m no fool—he only wants me because he can’t have me. And with graduation approaching, time is running out. He’s more desperate than ever, pulling out all the stops and doing everything in his power to get in my good graces. 
They say, “Don’t hate the player, hate the game.”…

Note: An advanced reader copy (ARC) was provided by the author via Ardent PRose.
Winter Renshaw’s latest novel, Hate the Game, is a standalone college sports romance, the sport of choice being American football. Readers are introduced to college seniors Talon Gold and Irie Davenport; he’s the school’s star quarterback who’s been chasing her since they were freshmen and she’s the interior design major who refuses to be caught. Talon could have any girl on campus and he knows it, but he’s had his sights set on Irie from the moment he saw her. He’s tried time and time again and failed every single time to get her to agree to go out with him. She knows how guys like him are, and she refuses to be nothing more than another notch on his bedpost. She thinks he sees her as nothing more than a challenge, and once he’s done with her, she’ll be dumped just like every other girl he’s been with. When they end up not only being in the same class together but as study partners, Talon sees it as his …

Bossy Brothers: Johnny (Bossy Brothers #3) by JA Huss Release Date: September 26, 2019
About Bossy Brothers: Johnny She wasn’t supposed to be the princess I wasn’t looking for.

When my father ‘died’ five years ago I took over the ‘family business’. But when I say business, I really mean secret society. Or cult. Or militia. Hell, let’s keep it simple and call it the mob.

It’s just not that mob.

It’s much darker, much dirtier, and much more dangerous than any old everyday mob.

And I was perfectly fine with my role in life for a long time. But now my brothers are involved and I need to get them out.

Enter Megan Machette.

When I found her helpless, nearly-naked, and chained to a wall on an island prison I had no intention of being her Prince Charming. But then I found out she had a dirty, dark, dangerous secret that could solve all my family problems.

I was just going to use her. Play her. Tell her everything she wanted to hear.

I never planned on baring my secrets to her in a midnight confess…

Coast to Coast
(Arizona Raptors #1) by RJ Scott & V.L. Locey Release Date: September 29, 2019
About Coast to Coast When opposites attract, it’s not just the team that’s in for a shake-up.

When a stipulation in his father’s will throws Mark back into a family that disowned him, he has only two things on his mind; buying his way out of contractual obligations and running in the opposite direction as fast as he can. When neither option pans out, he finds he is now a one third owner of the struggling Arizona Raptors hockey team, and that is just about the worst thing he could have happened to him. Not only does he hate hockey, but the Raptors are a bottom-of-the-league team, rife with jealousies and anger in a locker room that only knows self-pity. How is he supposed to help turn things around when the only way to start fixing things is to form an alliance with the estranged siblings he’d run from fifteen years earlier?

Then there’s Rowen Carmichael, a stubborn, opinionated, irritating man…
