Genre: Contemporary Romance
Publication Date: 3/1/12
Veronica Cruz has been through hell and back. After disconnecting with the world two years ago to be at the side of her dying mother, sheâs left alone, unemployed, overweight, and feeling a decade older than her twenty-eight years. When her best friend coaxes her into joining the local gym to ditch her depression and rejuvenate her life, she meets Noah. Assigned to help Veronica lose weight, Noah is everything she expected a young trainer to beâperfectly chiseled, supportive and motivating. Add to that, heâs incredibly sexy. Heâs everything sheâs ever looked for in a man. What she least expected was for him to fall for her, but he has. There's just one glaring problem: Noah is eight years younger.
Noah Quintanilla has his eye on a boxing titleâsomeday. Down for a few months with an injury, his maintenance-boy pay at 5th Street Gym won't cut it. Heâs finally given the opportunity to train. The catch? His trainee is an out-of-shape woman with a free week pass. Taking on the challenge, Noah stumbles into one of the closest friendships heâs ever known, and before he knows it, heâs in love. But Veronicaâs not having itâthe age difference is too much. Their platonic relationship means having to watch her date other menâsomething that would make him crazy. Believing he's the man for her, Noah sets out to prove that age is but an illusion, and there's more to him than just a number.
Teaser from Noah
Gio tapped his gloves. âYouâre good,â he said then jumped out of the ring as the ref gave them a one-minute warning.
Abel finished up with the Vaseline then looked at him very seriously. âKeep your head in the fight. You hear me? Iâve never seen you fight with this kind of distraction out there.â His head gestured in Roniâs direction, but he never took his eyes off Noah. âYou need to focus, or itâs gonna cost you. Just use that left jab of yours, and you should be good. Only thing this guy has is speed.â
The warning bell rang, and Abel jumped out of the ring. Noah stood up, glancing in Roniâs direction. She was facing the ring now, but the guy was still leaning forward, talking to her from behind. Focus, damn it.

When tragedy strikes in the ring, Giovanni Bravo falls into a deep depression, walking away from his dream of boxing to train instead. He agrees to a two month get-away, helping train Felix Sanchez, his high school best friend and now welterweight champ of the world. Once at Felixâs lavish boxing complex, heâs reunited with Bianca Rubio, someone he remembers only as the girl with the innocent doe eyes back in high school. Her refreshing, cheerful demeanor not only takes Gioâs mind off his troubled conscience, he finds himself falling for her fast and hard. The problemâBianca is Felixâs girlfriend.
Having a sexy, famous boyfriend has its perks, but they come with a price. Bianca not only has to deal with the ongoing tabloid rumors about her boyfriend hooking with other women, but also his constant absence when he is on the road. So now that Felix will be in town for two whole months to train for his next big bout, Bianca is thrilled. Heâs even asked her to move into his cabin while he's there. But when he leaves for days at a time to promote his fight, Bianca spends time getting to know Felixâs gorgeous new trainer and good friend, Gio. Increasingly drawn to his sweet smile and smoldering green eyes, she finds herself saying and doing things she normally wouldnât.
As it becomes more and more difficult for each to resist the other, Gio crosses the line between them. He hopes that one kiss will alleviate the overwhelming temptation and clear both their systems, but it does just the opposite. Their temptation suddenly becomes an obsession--an obsession that quickly forces Gio to realize this is more than just lust. He's fallen hard and to his delight so has she. Now he's forced to make the hardest decision of his life. Risk losing his long time friend or walk away from the only girl he's ever loved.
Teaser from Gio
âI was serious, you know,â she said casually.
He glanced at her, his eyebrows pulled together. âAbout what?â
âYouâre gonna be sore tomorrow.â
He chuckled now, really reminding her of Felix and how cocky heâd been about it his first time out. âDid you forget I work out every day?â
âI knew youâd say that because itâs exactly what Felix said. This is a different work out, Gio. Youâre gonna feel it tomorrowâeverywhere. I promise.â He smiled, obviously not worried about it. âI mean it. You might even consider soaking in the hot tub tonight. Felix was so sore the next day, and he didnât even go as long or as hard as you did.â
A sudden evil smile spread across his face, and his eyes just about sparkled with humor. âIs that right, Bianca? So youâre saying I went longer and harder than your boyfriend?

Teaser from Hector
Nestor smiled at Hector. âLooks like Iâll be getting laid tonight.â
âYou think so?â Hector asked ready to slam Nestor against the wall.
âOh yeah,â Nestor continued, smiling big.
Nestor almost walked past him, but Hector stepped in front of him. âAnd what makes you think that?â
Nestor backed up a step, pinching his brows. âBecause I just invited some chicks to a keg party tonight, and they said theyâd be there.â What had turned into a somewhat defensive expression eased into a smirk and Nestor added. âHell, I may even have me a twofer.â
âReally?â Hector did his best to sound as calm as he could. âThe redhead you were talking to out there?â
Nestorâs smiled. âYeah, Charlee.â
Just hearing him say her name made Hector want to punch him in the fucking throat. âCharlee ismy friend which means sheâs off limits to you.â He turned to the other guys who were listening also and raised his voice a notch. âTo all of you.â Nestor began to frown, pushing Hectorâs agitation to another level. Speaking louder and more demanding, he took a step closer to the idiot. âYou have a problem with that, Nestor?â

Teaser from Abel
And finally Abel.
Feeling crazed with anticipation, Abelâs eyes searched for the ice/vending machine room like the one on his floor. The moment he saw it, he pulled her in it.
He answered her confused expression with a kiss as he closed the door and pushed her against it. âI need to refuel.â
All right, he needed to get laid more often. This was ridiculous. Obviously heâd been spending too much time training and not enough socializing, because heâd never felt this kind of urgency. Duly notedâheâd move a few things around in his schedule. She lifted her leg, bringing it around him.
âCareful,â he warned, biting her lower lip, âor I may just finish you up right here.â
âDo it,â was her only response, and he froze.
Pulling back to look in her eyes, he could see she was serious. âRight here?â He asked, his hand already traveling down under her dress.
She nodded as his fingers felt the dampness between her legs and how hot she already was, pushing his heart into overdrive. He squeezed his eyes shut as he leaned his forehead against hers.
âSweetheart, donât play with me.â
âIâm not,â she assured him breathlessly.
