Ever-hopeful Lia thinks she’ll be with handsome, brooding Jake forever. Until one day he completely blindsides her and makes her question everything she knows… Lia Townsend is expecting a ring and a trip to Hawaii for her fifth wedding anniversary. Instead, her husband, Jake, walks out on her. Out of the blue. Devastated, Lia vows to win back Jake and the perfect life they shared.

Because it was perfect, wasn’t it?

But as Lia searches for the truth behind Jake’s departure, the cracks in the shiny varnish begin to show. And once she uncovers his secret, all that she once knew and believed in crumbles.

Lia’s eccentric mother, her best friend, and two vastly different men each pull her in new directions, and Lia attempts to push past the pain and start anew.

But Jake isn’t gone for good. When an accident rocks the lives of their best friends, Lia and Jake are thrown together. Will Lia choose to salvage her old life with the man who broke her heart – or was everything they shared an illusion?

The Whole Man by CF Rose, a steamy sports romance, is on sale today through Oct. 7 for only $0.99. Deal available in the U.S. and the U.K.

A second chance with my first love, sexy baseball player Jesse Walsh?

That’s not happening.

We made so many promises to each other over that one passionate weekend ten years ago. I was in college, and he was about to be called up to the Major Leagues. And then he walked out on me. Just like that.

I told myself: If I ever see him again – which I won’t – I’ll tell him off. I won’t settle for anything less than the whole man this time.

And now here he is, standing in front of me at the worst possible moment. Of course the memories come flooding back when I see those rock-hard abs, the brooding blue-green eyes… What’s he doing here in Orange County?

I should read him the riot act, but my body has something else in mind. It remembers his all too well. And by the way he’s looking at me, his remembers mine.

I slip away this time, but there’s a next. And a next. Suddenly he’s everywhere, undressing me with those penetrating eyes. When I give in, he leaves me wanting more after a steamy encounter on his living room floor.

The timing of this isn’t exactly ideal. I’m dealing with a new job and a bad situation with my creep of an ex-boyfriend. But Jesse seems serious this time, like he knows what he wants. Me.

And then I uncover a secret. A secret that could tear us apart forever…

Letters for Scarlet by best-selling author Julie C. Gardner is on sale for only $0.99 through Sept. 29th! This offer is available in the U.S. and the U.K.

If you've already read this compelling novel of friendship, secrets and love, consider recommending it to a friend.

What would you do if you received a letter from your past self? 

Sweet Corie and fiery Scarlet were best friends. Inseparable. Sisters of the heart. Until that one life-changing night they both wish they could take back…

Twenty-eight-year old Corie Harper embarks on an emotional journey after receiving a graduation letter she forgot she wrote. Although she spent a decade hiding her secrets, each page reminds her of the friendship she lost with her best friend, Scarlet, when her now-husband, Tucker, got between them.

Scarlet, who hasn’t seen Corie since, blazed her own path and left the past far behind. Or so she thinks. Pregnant with a baby she’s scared to have, Scarlet must decide if she wants to continue alone or find the courage to mend her broken friendship.

Can these former best friends overcome the betrayal that changed their lives?
