Sasha Black was a quiet, typical twenty year- old finishing her nursing degree at the local college. Then the world as she knew it ended on the night of her twenty-first birthday. She was left alone in the world, and then she met Dr. Adam Connors. Soon she discovered that monsters in nightmares were her reality. It was up to the Connors brothers to keep her safe without her walking away and taking Adam's heart with her.
It took only one day at college for life to throw a wrench in Alyssa’s plans. When she walks into the quirky used bookstore just off campus she expects to find a few old paperbacks, not to lose her head over the store’s sexy owner—and Kyle is way out of her league, the kind of sex-on-a-stick bad boy who would never give a girl like her a second thought. Or would he? There’s nothing Alyssa loves more than a good challenge, and this one promises to be a lot more exciting than running for class president. She just wants to make Kyle notice her, that’s all—to see her as a woman. How hard can that be? She’ll stop before she gets in over her head. But she can’t get those smoldering brown eyes and sinful smile out of her mind, and she keeps imagining his full, soft lips hovering a breath away from her own. Would kissing him really be so dangerous? Kyle doesn’t do sweet and innocent. He certainly doesn’t mess with the kind of college girls who will still be getting carded when they’re forty. But one look at Alyssa’s smile is enough to shake him, and he can’t seem to make himself push her away. It’s a mistake and he knows it—he’s too old for her, she’s not remotely his type, and he’s not into relationships—but she’s under his skin like no other woman has ever managed before. He knows he can’t have her, but maybe he can have just a little taste? He can always stop, any time he wants to, before he gets in too deep with her. What can it hurt? Just one kiss, and then he can stop. Can’t he? Would kissing her really be so dangerous?

When his friend Allen Harrington's death is ruled a suicide, boy-next-door-cute Kevin Connor - a hustler by trade, sleuth by default - sets out to prove a case of murder. It doesn't help that the victim's grown children, who disapproved of their father's gay lifestyle, are only concerned about their inheritance. But they are not Kevin's only problem. Despite the lack of anything even resembling an invitation, his mother has moved in with him, and Tony Rinaldi, the ex-lover who broke his heart back in high school, has reappeared years later as the lead investigator in Allen's death. Luckily, Kevin has his handsome best friend, Freddy, on hand to help him try to uncover what really happened to Allen. But Kevin's on his own in figuring out how to get his mother out of his hair and the now-married Tony back into his bed. There's also a small chance that Kevin just might actually be in love with Freddy. Not to mention the demands of his clients, like the stirrups-wielding gynecologist and The World's Nicest Sadist. And, did Kevin remember to take his attention deficit medication today?
