Fast rising MMA superstar Max Thomas seems to have it all for a college student – the beautiful girlfriend, the loyal best friend, the supportive parents and every agent in the area pounding down his door.

And is a life in mixed martial arts what he really wants?
When Max suffers a devastating injury in the octagon, will those in his life stay by his side as he recovers? Or how fast will his perfect world unravel?

Let’s all take a moment and appreciate the smokin’ hot cover for NEVER KISS A STRANGER by Logan Chance! This hilarious enemies-to-lovers Rom/Com, featuring a quirky heroine (she’s a dog wedding planner) and a sexy, mysterious hero, releases April 7.
Ellis Atwood is the devil. Ok, maybe that’s too harsh. Ellis Atwood is ruining my life.
First, he demolishes a perfectly good wedding trellis.
Second, he destroys a gorgeous doggie wedding that I spent ages planning. (I kid you not.)
Third, he makes me feel all warm and fuzzy, and that is not ok. I prefer the cold and harsh way my fiancé makes me feel so much better. (wait, that didn’t come out right.)
Fourth, and there is a fourth, he gets me all wound up and flustered.
And last, when he unexpectedly kissed me it made me forget my own name, or the fact that I’m getting married…in a month.
Please someone help me out. I’m a mess.
Worst part is, Ellis isn’t the bad guy I first thought he was.
And being forced to spend time with him is making me realize that he needs my help more than anything.
So what’s a girl like me to do?
I’m only in town long enough to figure out a plan with my brother on how to save our brewery from the awfulness that is my father. Oh and be in a wedding.
Where I may or may not be crushing a little too hard on the bride-to-be. (spoiler alert, I’m crushing hard.)
She’s really cute. Like seriously.
And she has the cutest job, she’s a dog wedding planner. (I kid you not.)
I can see why Henry loves her.
I can see why everyone loves her.
I can see why I’m falling for her.
I’m usually not a relationship-type guy. Call it picky or whatnot, but usually I get bored easily. So, my plan is simple. Spend as much time with Kiki (soon to be Faniki, I know) and hopefully get bored with her adorkable smile and sexy legs that go on for miles.
Then, I can save the brewery, be the best man of the wedding, and get my butt back to Chicago and away from the happy couple.
She was innocent. Passionate. Fierce. After Luna Stone and I went from friends to lovers, my only purpose was showing her how worthy I was. But how could I convince her when I didn’t believe it myself? I craved her touch and her smiles but most of all, her heart. I vowed to protect her and show her father that I could be the man for his daughter. I pushed. She pulled. And when all was said and done, I’d have to go through an even higher power to prove that I deserved her… Myself.
He was quiet. Withdrawn. Intense. Zach Porter and I had been friends since we were kids, but it had never amounted to anything more than that. Until now. But as close as we were getting, he was still closed off. He protected his heart and put up walls, even though he had no reason to. He shoved. I grabbed hold and never let go. If I didn’t fight for what was ours, he’d succumb to his demons and believe their vicious words telling him that he’s not good enough. To give up. On us.

Chelsea finds living in Red Canyon rather dull. The guys who come into the bar she works at ask the same questions and order the same kind of beer. She could do with something different, and a mysterious customer wearing bright suspenders does just that.
The traveling carnival is in town, and she can’t wait to go. The attractions and food are nice, but the dark-haired man working one of the booths catches her eye more. All she has to do is knock down the wooden pins to get a stuffed animal, although the prize she really has in mind is more substantial.
But when Nate’s time in Red Canyon is up, she has a decision to make. That, and making the throwing game fair is making him unpopular with the carnival boss, bringing everything to a head. Life isn’t always bright lights and games, and Chelsea wants something more permanent after the group packs up and moves on.
