Travis Maddox

Travis is lean, cut, covered in tattoos, and spends his nights winning money in a floating fight ring and his days as the ultimate college campus charmer. He is exactly what Abby wants—and needs—to avoid. Abby Abernathy is a good girl. She doesn’t drink or swear, and she has the appropriate number of cardigans in her wardrobe. Abby believes she has enough distance from the darkness of her past, but when she arrives at college with her best friend, her path to a new beginning is quickly challenged by Eastern University’s Walking One-Night Stand. Intrigued by Abby’s resistance to his appeal, Travis tricks her into his daily life with a simple bet. If he loses, he must remain abstinent for a month. If Abby loses, she must live in Travis’s apartment for the same amount of time. Either way, Travis has no idea that he has met his match.

The Vincent Boys

by Abbi Glines

Beau Vincent

Beau is the sexiest guy Ashton has ever seen, and even though he’s dangerous, she’s drawn to him. Tired of being good, of impressing her parents and playing ideal girlfriend to Sawyer Vincent, Ashton begins rekindling her childhood friendship with Beau, who also happens to be Sawyer’s cousin.

Beau loves his cousin like a brother, so the last thing he wants to do is make a move on Sawyer’s girl. Ashton is off-limits, absolutely. That’s why he does his best to keep his distance, even though he’s been in love with her forever. Ashton and Beau don’t want to hurt Sawyer. But the more they try to stay away from each other, the more intense their urges become. It’s getting way too hard to resist.
