Cort van Breda has won 35 death matches as a fighter in an MMA circuit so deep underground there are no rules and only the winner gets out alive.
They call him the Sick Heart.
They say he's a shameless monster.
They say he's a ruthless killer.
They say he's as twisted as the man who owns him.
They say a lot of things about Cort van Breda.
But in our world violence is money, and money is winning, and winning is life, and life is the only thing that matters.
Except... he wasn't meant to win that last fight.
And I wasn't meant to be his prize.
But he did.
And I am.
And now his sick heart owns me.
WARNING: This is a sweet love story adrift in an ocean of evil. It is about two survivors dealing with their darkest secrets while they fight to change their lives. It is for mature readers only and has descriptions of deeply disturbing situations. There will be pearl clutching.
After suffering a horrific injury that threatens to end his career, Baden Oulett is about to learn that sometimes a fresh start is just what the doctor ordered.
I worked my whole life to achieve one goal—play professional hockey. As part of the defending Cup champion Arizona Vengeance, I was living my dream until one split second decision destroyed it all. Instead of lacing up my skates and hitting the ice, I’ve spent my days in rehab and physical therapy just so I could walk again. When a coaching opportunity with the Pittsburgh Titans is presented to me, I find myself with a career I had never considered but which allows me to continue being part of the sport that I love.
While my injuries are physical, the same can’t be said for the woman I rescued. Suffering from wounds that can’t be seen, Sophie Winters has withdrawn from the world in fear and guilt. I didn’t know Sophie before that fateful night and have only met her once since, but I refuse to let her face her demons alone. Determined to be a friend, I support Sophie in the only way I know how… by simply being there.
Through our shared trauma, Sophie and I begin to find peace within one another. As we grow closer, what started as friendship becomes more intimate until our broken pieces become one. But can a love born of anguish endure, or will the pain of our past prove too much to overcome?
Jilted. Living in a glorified closet. The world's worst bar waitress. I just need to keep a roof over my head and make tuition payments until I can finish graduate school. Then my real life will start. But right now, long nights at the Speakeasy have me burning the candle at both ends and the wax melting all over my fingers.
When a bar manager offers me a job taking care of his adorable five-year-old daughter, it seems like the perfect solution. I get a quiet place to study. Matteo gets a reliable sitter.
There should be no complications. Except that I like my new boss a little too much. His gorgeous dark eyes humble me, and the long talks we share fill me up inside. I can't possibly fall for him.
But the undeniable pull between us leads to a scorching kiss I can't ignore or forget, and suddenly I've fallen for them both, father and daughter.
And now three hearts are at stake.
Amber, CEO of the leading cosmetics company, agrees to speak out about pulling her product from the shelves of her largest retailer. She’s just getting started exposing corporate giants capitalizing on forced labor. Her actions turn into consequences when the news anchor is shot immediately after her interview. Luckily, the very competent, very sexy Dr. Conner Ross is on the scene and demands that she join him in sneaking this man to safety and saving his life.
Grateful and curious, she’s pleasantly surprised at the power, resources, and talent Conner contributes as a member of the Pride. He’s offering protection, which she knows better than to accept. The retailer she took down belonged to her ex. This fight is personal, and when her ex is finished with her reputation, Amber will brush herself off and go after the next shady company.
Considering Conner’s family bought the business she took down, she needs him, and his spotless reputation, at a distance. When her ex brings on the fight, she realizes there’s no distance safe enough for her.
West Golden - fierce protector. The one.
The cocky jock I once wanted to kill with my bare hands is now the only one I trust with my heart.
In a city full of corruption and dark secrets, knowing who’s on your side gets harder to determine every day. Especially now that Vin’s on the warpath, passing out threats he fully intends to see through to the end. His power here in Cypress Pointe seems limitless, and I don’t have time to see if that’s true. I’m prepared to make sacrifices to keep my family safe.
Even if what’s sacrificed is my own happiness.
As our circle of loyal friends becomes clear, we cling to it, because it’s all any of us has. And if there’s one thing Vin didn’t count on, it’s that blood isn’t always thicker than water.
He might just find out firsthand why it’s never wise to cross the king’s queen.
Forever Golden is the highly anticipated conclusion to this portion of the saga, and a lead-in to the Kings of Cypress spinoff. This book is the final installment of a trilogy and should only be listened to after completing books one and two, The Golden Boys and Never His Girl.
This series contains strong bully themes. So, if you’re not into romances where hate turns into love (...eventually), and if you don’t like your heroes of the unapologetically alpha variety, this might not be the series for you. There is no rape or dubious consent whatsoever. However, due to adult themes and sexual situations, this one’s only for the 18+ crowd.
This series is sure to give you GOssip Girl and One Tree Hill vibes, and the angst will have you resisting to pause to find out what happens next. Get lost in this series today!

Moving in with a billionaire playboy is supposed to be some sort of Cinderella story, right? I'm supposed to be having the time of my life while living the dream.
When the bank took our home, it didn't come as a surprise. The bomb was when mom told me we were moving out of Breakers Flats, away from my crew, and to a place that only existed in fairy tales-Bellevue Springs. Home of the insanely beautiful, rich, and famous.
Only, Bellevue Springs is far from a fairy tale. It's a nightmare full of secrets, horrors, and the ugly reality of the one-percenters, but without this move, mom and I are up sh*t creek without a paddle.
We don't belong here-not even as the help.
I should have been prepared. I should have done my homework so at least that way I wasn't blindsided by Charles Carrington's son; my new housemate.
Colton F*cking Carrington.
He's the definition of an arrogant, entitled prick and he's determined to make my life a living hell. Guess what, Colton? Where I'm from, you don't start a war unless you intend to finish it, and that's exactly what I plan to do.
You can't take down a girl who has nothing left to lose.
We may be on your territory, but this is my game.

Do I have it in me?
I’ve watched the people I love commit the worst kinds of crimes and within the blink of an eye, I could be just like them. I feel the jagged glass beneath my fingers, but do I have the strength to follow this through? How much of my soul am I willing to sacrifice to make this right?
Nic was supposed to be my rock. He was supposed to be my world until he showed me a side of himself that terrified me. He’s not the boy I once loved, he’s a man who’s quickly becoming the monster in my nightmare.
Colton saved me. Colton keeps saving me, but I don’t know if he can pull me back this time. He has secrets of his own, but they leave me wondering just who it is that I’m falling for.
He lied to me.
With Momma Carrington and the b*tch twins back, Jude Carter hostage in the wine cellar, a killer on the loose, and a secret I never saw coming, my life is seconds away from spiralling out of control.
The question is: Who will be there when I come out the other end?
West Golden - football star. Playboy. Dead to me.
Nothing puts the final bullet in a girl’s rep like a leaked sex tape. Especially one starring her and the cocky quarterback who’s had it out for her since day one. Yep, you guessed it. That girl is me.
At Cypress Prep, West is king, but all I see when I look at him is the wicked prick who gets off on trying to break me.
Go ahead. Give him a round of applause for winning that last round, but know this - hell hath no fury like a girl from the south side with a baseball bat.
Hurt me once, shame on you. Hurt me twice...over my dead body.
Never His Girl is the highly anticipated continuation of the Kings of Cypress Prep series. This is book two in a trilogy and should only be listened to after completing book one, The Golden Boys.

When Shy steps into the face of danger, she exposes her boss for what he really is-a hero.
Shy has escaped poverty and the addictions of her family and has buried it all in the past to land her dream job at Curtis Black and Associates. Ready for her first case as lead researcher, she's forced to recuse herself when her half brother, whom she has successfully avoided her whole life, is the primary suspect in the case. As if revealing her relation in front of the senior partners isn't damaging enough, she's demoted to being an assistant for Atlanta's most charming bachelor, Kyler Ross. The man is lethally handsome and sinfully smooth, with a serious phobia of office romance. Determined to prove her estrangement from her brother and return to her rightful position, Shy faces the brother she's never known, only to find herself wanting to help him. Surprisingly, her new boss is more than charm and good looks. He's willing to help, and lucky for her, he never loses.
Kyler Ross doesn't need another Candice in his life. All it takes is one accusation for an assistant to ruin a boss's reputation. When Curtis Black asks him to take on his star employee as a temporary assistant, believing she may need protection, he's less than thrilled to have the babysitting job-until he comes face-to-face with Shy Santino. Professional, witty, and even more full of herself than he is, she's the sexiest woman he's ever met. What's the risk of having her? When she's snatched from the street right in front of him, he gets his answer. He'll risk his life to have the rest of his life with her.
Rape. Death. Injustice.
Bellevue Springs is not the place I thought it was going to be.
Meeting Colton Carrington has changed my life, but the jury is still out on how he changed it. Good...bad? I guess I’ll find out. I live in a dark world, but he was a darkness that was welcomed, a darkness that I certainly wasn’t prepared for.
Missing people. A dead billionaire. Gang war. Sexism.
When does it end?
Nic is bearing down on me. He wants me back in Breakers Flats where he can protect me, but I can’t walk away, not now that the secrets are finally starting to spill. People aren’t who they say they are, and being careful in a rich man’s world becomes more important than ever before.
Will I survive this, or am I destined to fail?
All I know is that death has never come so close, and for the first time in my life...I’m f--king terrified.
