Breaking His Serve Cover

Blurb

Chase is controlled. River is anything but. The two together, on and off the court, are a force to reckon with.

When Chase Rossi steps onto the tennis court for the first time in his senior year at college, he thinks his position at first singles is secure. Then River Adams shows up, with his boisterous attitude, bad-boy good looks and a quest to unseat him. Though Chase considers River an enemy, he can’t ignore a growing attraction to him.

River Adams has to make an abrupt change in his tennis career after his mother is diagnosed with cancer. Now the coach is pitting him against Chase, the hottest guy he’s ever seen, and the best part? The easy way he gets under Chase’s skin and rips him apart, on and off the court, in more ways than one.

As tempers flare and secrets are revealed, the two find their opposite personalities might be a perfect match. Chase is attracted to all the things he should hate about River—his ridiculous antics, his carefree attitude, and his competitive nature—and he knows falling for River could be the thing that does him in. River doesn’t think twice about jumping in with Chase.

He knows Chase is a man who could become his rock if he plays his cards right, just when he needs one. As they realize they compliment each other in every way, can they both figure out how to give their hearts fully and find the love they deserve?

Excerpt

Coach Jim stood in the middle of a court by the net with a clipboard in his hand, all dressed in white, his brown hair thinning, standing in front of ten or so other young men. “You’re late, Chase Rossi, our number one singles, and Nick Jones, our number three singles.” He smirked at them, his brown eyes twinkling.

“Yeah, yeah.” Chase joined the other young men along with Nick and looked them all over. Pretty much everyone was back from last year, except for the seniors that had graduated. He counted five new ones, probably all freshmen by the look of them. He ticked his head to the ones he recognized, including the only other senior besides himself and Nick, Hunter Williams, a tall young man with brown wavy hair, cut to frame his face and his brown eyes.

Coach Jim tapped his clipboard with his index finger, his gaze following something beyond the courts.

Chase peered out. What was Coach looking at?

A young man, shorter than Chase with stark white hair flopping over the side of his head and black brows hovering over stunning blue eyes, came running toward them, a tan shirt pulling tight across his strong shoulders and skinny jeans hugging his narrow hips. He stopped next to Chase and smiled at him, his thick silver hooped earrings glinting in the sun.

Chase widened his eyes. His breath caught. Holy shit, it’s River. When did he bleach his hair? As his heart skipped, he took a hard swallow. “What the fuck are you doing here?”

“Nice to see you, too, Rossi.” River smirked, his upper lip the tiniest bit larger than the lower. He scanned the other young men.

Coach Jim smiled and shifted his stance. “I see you two know each other.”

“Yeah, I beat the shit out of him a few months ago at a tournament.” River snickered, then set his hand on Chase’s shoulder.

Chase flung his hand off, snarling. “Get off me.” Of course, the asshole had to tell everyone about the most embarrassing match of his life.

River’s smile waned and he took a step back.

Hunter came to River’s side, giving him a quick grin. “Hey, man. Glad you decided to come.”

“Thanks.” River lifted his chin to Chase. “At least someone is happy that there is now a great player on this team.”

Chase scowled. “Two words. Fuck. Off.”

“Now, boys…” Coach Jim took deliberate steps toward them, chuckling. “You see, this is very interesting. You want to know why?” He grinned at them both.

Chase pursed his lips. This was where Coach was going to do something that unnerved him. He knew it. “Uh, why?”

“You two are going to play doubles together this year.”

“What? You can’t be serious.” Chase flicked his gaze to River, his chest tightening. Fuck no.

River hung his head, shaking it, then laughed. “Oh, this’ll be good.”

About the Author

christie-gordon-photo

Christie Gordon started writing gay and M/M romance fiction after becoming preoccupied with anime and in particular, the boys love and yaoi genres. She’s always had stories in her head and always enjoyed writing, so she took up fiction writing classes at a local community college and published her first book with eXtasy Books back in 2009.

Christie likes to write complicated characters with painful pasts that refuse to be ignored until the characters are forced to face them head on. Angst? Yes. Happily ever after? Always. It’s the struggle to get there that counts.

Christie’s day job is in the high-tech industry with a Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering and a Master’s in Business Administration. She currently lives in the Phoenix, Arizona metro area and enjoyed eight years in the Bay Area of California but grew up in Minnesota.

She shares a home with her partner of twelve years, a musician by night and a coder by day, who is currently in three bands, giving her plenty of time to keep writing. She is also a mother of two sons, one currently in college for engineering and the other preparing for nursing college. Her one-eyed, rescue pug is always by her side, snoring the day away.

Inbetweeners

Blurb

An angel and a demon walk into a bar…

It should be the start of a joke, except Emmett and Phoenix loathe each other the moment they meet. Reluctant and mismatched partners they may be, but they’ve been given a job to do on Earth: persuade the newly dead to move on to wherever they’re destined to go.

A friendly word here, a nudge there, all the dead should need is a push in the right direction—but dark forces are working against the pair, and the mission takes a dangerous turn.

From hate at first sight, to toleration, to something more… Except time is running out, and soon Emmett and Phoenix will be torn apart and returned to the worlds from which they came. That’s not what they want, and neither is willing to go back without a fight…

…. Because even though they’re dead, they’ve never felt more alive.

This is book three in the Lost and Found series but all the books can be read as standalones. They are linked by PR – Paranormal Resolutions, which is an agency policing supernaturals. The books have some overlapping characters.

About The Author

Barbara-Elsborg

Barbara Elsborg lives in Kent in the south of England. She always wanted to be a spy, but having confessed to everyone without them even resorting to torture, she decided it was not for her. Volcanology scorched her feet. A morbid fear of sharks put paid to marine biology. So instead, she spent several years successfully selling cyanide.

After dragging up two rotten, ungrateful children and frustrating her sexy, devoted, wonderful husband (who can now stop twisting her arm) she finally has time to conduct an affair with an electrifying plugged-in male, her laptop.

She writes stories about two guys, two guys and one woman, and one guy and one woman in most genres—contemporary, paranormal, sci fi, suspense, urban fantasy. Her books feature bad boys and quirky heroines, and she hopes they are as much fun to read as they are to write.

She loves hearing from readers and can be contacted at bjelsborg@gmail.com If you’d like to hear about future releases please ask to be put on her mailing list.

READ MY REVIEW

Final-High-Rez-eBook-PSD-the-bestmen

Blurb

In my defense, I was left alone with a bottle of single-malt and a life-long penchant for protecting my baby sister. Still, that’s no excuse to send ten drunk-texts on why her hasty marriage would be a mistake.

If only I had just texted my sister. But nope. I accidentally sent the message to her, her groom, and his super hot wingman.

I also used the phrase “super hot wingman,” so I’d like to die now.

Instead, I have to plan a wedding with the aforementioned hottie and share a too-small guesthouse in steamy Miami.

Three days in the sun with the cocky, charming former athlete who likes to push my buttons? Fine, two can play at that let’s-infuriate-each-other game.

Until Asher ups the stakes with one wildly sexy suggestion. A no-strings fling, then I go back to my single dad life in New York, and he returns to his star-studded one.

Sign me up.

But the more nights I spend with the other best man, the more I want days too, and that just can’t happen. Especially when I find out the real reason why…

Contents Include: First times, a secret to-do list, champion-level flirting, fast cars, #eggplants, and two men who look good in formal wear.

Bestselling authors Sarina Bowen and Lauren Blakely team up for the first time in an enemies-to-lovers, opposites-attract, irresistibly sexy standalone romance between the best man and the other best man!
