River Bend Series
by Molly McLain
Genre: Contemporary/Military Romance
Can't Shake You is the first book in the steamy, small town contemporary romance series, River Bend, by USA Today Bestselling Author Molly McLain.
Lovers to friends to lovers...could it get any more complicated?
One thing Carissa Brandt knows: spontaneity always gets her in trouble. Still, she's gone and jumped head first into an impulsive summer renovation project with her fingers crossed. When her contractor turns out to be a cheat, it seems her only lifeline is the proffered hand of Josh Hudson--the sexy Marine who left her aching for more than their single night together three years ago.
Josh has two hard and fast rules: never mix business with pleasure and don't look twice at women his friends have dated, much less loved. It makes life in a small town simple--or it would, if he wasn't harboring a secret with the potential to destroy his good name and the reputation of a woman he can't get out of his head.
When Carissa finds herself in a bind, Josh's integrity--both personal and professional--won't let her fail. Will working together finally extinguish the attraction lingering between them? Or will the smoldering embers of their passionate rendezvous ignite all over again and set aflame the friendships they cherish the most?
Warning: This book contains a hella-sexy, inked up hero, a spunky heroine who isn't afraid to speak her mind, smokin' hot sex, and enough swearing to make your momma blush. For readers 18+.
When life gives you lemons, find a neighbor with sexy abs to lick the lemonade from...
Tony Dunn's panty-snatching bachelor life has been turned upside down--he now has custody of a daughter he didn't even know he fathered. With his focus solely on doing right by his little girl, the last thing he needs is a sexy, totally distracting blonde showing up in his doorstep.
Nicole Hodges is in River Bend temporarily, to handle her grandmother's estate and get the heck out of Dodge before her past catches up with her. Only problem is...she likes the quiet little town more than she expects, and she can't resist overextending herself to help her built-like-a-bad-boy neighbor get his life back on track.
Tony and Nicole have different goals in mind, none of which include a relationship. But what harm could come from a little fun--the naked kind--if they both know the rules up front?
Warning: This book contains a sex-deprived single dad with a wicked tongue. Enough said.
A convenient, casual, and completely orgasmic fling. What more could a girl want?
For the past year, barista Ally Barrett has been content to spend her weekends distracting River Bend’s hottest commodity—the sexy, too-serious sheriff. Their casual arrangement suits her independent nature just fine…until it doesn’t.
Sheriff and Army Guardsman Mark Dunn lives to serve the people of his community and his country. Ally is the only woman who’s never asked for more than his nights—and the only one he’s ever considered giving his days, as well. Too bad duty says otherwise.
When an unexpected pregnancy flips their no-strings understanding on its head—and tarnishes both of their reputations—Mark has a tough time proving he wants a real relationship and not just reelection. But if this sheriff knows anything, it's how to fight for what he believes in—Ally’s heart.
Warning: This book contains a hero who’s all business and no play…unless there’s a dress and a hot redhead involved.
Sometimes what you want and what you need are two very different things.
Always relegated to the "friends with benefits" corner of small town River Bend, Jenny Riley is done giving the milk for free. Falling hard for a bad boy? Not in the plan, either.
Sexy, emotionally-wounded Marine Reservist Brody Nelson just needs someone to lend an ear. A friend. Friends to lovers? That's more than he bargained for.
Neither wants a relationship. A long distance friendship should be enough.
Warning: This books contains a tattooed, pierced hero with a few surprises up his sleeve...and a hella sexy one down his pants.
Everyone has a secret…
Reed Fletcher has spent years perfecting his reputation as River Bend’s most shameless player. Don’t confuse him with a heartless asshole—he’s just honest about what he wants and he’ll do anything to get it. Being born under less than perfect circumstances has given him no other choice.
Everyone has a story…
Mia Carderas has used her sweet and sexy demeanor to get everything she could possibly want out of life. Or so she lets everyone believe. When her father falls ill back home, that carefully constructed façade begins to crack. The only way to keep it together is to accept help from a former friend…and more recent lover. A man who knows more than he should—a man who could ruin it all if she isn’t careful.
Everyone has a weakness…
Finding a balance between what Reed wants and what Mia needs proves harder than he expected. With every slow blink and every shared moment, he loses more of himself to her…willingly. Maybe neither of them is who they've pretended to be. But where exactly does that leave them when it all comes crashing down?
