The finale to The Ex Games, The Private Club & The Love Trials<br /><br />There are three things I’ve done in my life that I’m not proud of. There are three things I’ve done that I would change if I could. One of them is falling in love. I wish I’d never done it. She doesn’t know that of course. She doesn’t know that for every second I love being with her, I hate being with her. She doesn’t know the fear I feel every day when I wake up. The fear that she’ll be gone. The fear that she’ll leave me. For she will leave me. If she finds out about the other two things I regret. That’s why I regret falling in love. Falling in love with her made me realize that I had had nothing to lose before I met her. Falling in love made me realize that life would have no meaning without her. And that’s why she must never know the truth about anything else. If she knows the truth, she’ll never forgive me. Never. And knowing that is even harder than knowing I will never forgive myself. But the storm that’s a coming. It’s not coming from the ocean or the sea. It’s coming from me. It’s stirring and whirring inside of me. It’s a hurricane wanting to break out. A tornado about to come to life. And that’s why I’m afraid. That’s why I want to run, but I have no way to hide. I have it all. But I’m about to lose it. Just like that. And there’s nothing I can do to stop it. The lights will all burn out. In three, two, one. And then there will be darkness.<br />

<p><b>From Elizabeth LaBan, the acclaimed author of <i>The Restaurant Critic’s Wife</i>, comes a captivating and very funny novel about a wife and mother’s fall from grace, and why keeping up appearances is <i>not</i> her biggest secret.</b></p><p>Tabitha Brewer wakes up one morning to find her husband gone, leaving her no way to support herself and their two children, never mind their upscale Philadelphia lifestyle. She’d confess her situation to her friends—if it wasn’t for those dreadful words of warning in his goodbye note: <i>“I’ll tell them what you did.”</i></p><p>Instead, she does her best to keep up appearances, even as months pass and she can barely put food on the table—much less replace a light bulb. While she looks for a job, she lives in fear that someone will see her stuffing toilet paper into her handbag or pinching basil from a neighbor’s window box.</p><p>Soon, blindsided by catastrophe, surprised by romance, and stunned by the kindness of a stranger, Tabitha realizes she can’t keep her secrets forever. Sooner or later, someone is bound to figure out that her life is far from perfect.</p>

<div><b>NOW A <i>NEW YORK TIMES</i>, <i>USA TODAY</i> and <i>WALL STREET JOURNAL</i> BESTSELLER!</b></div><div><b></b></div><div></div><br /> From <b>#1 <i>New York Times</i></b> Bestseller Vi Keeland, comes a new, sexy <b>standalone</b> novel.<br /><br />My relationship with Hunter Delucia started backwards.<br /><br />We met at a wedding--him sitting on the groom's side, me sitting on the bride's. Stealing glances at each other throughout the night, there was no denying an intense, mutual attraction.<br /><br />I caught the bouquet; he caught the garter. Hunter held me tightly while we danced and suggested we explore the chemistry sparking between us. His blunt, dirty mouth should've turned me off. But for some crazy reason, it had the opposite effect on me.<br /><br />We ended up back in my hotel room. The next morning, I headed home to New York leaving him behind in California with the wrong number.<br /><br />I thought about him often, but after my last relationship, I'd sworn off of charming, cocky, gorgeous-as-sin men. A year later, Hunter and I met again at the birth of our friends' baby. Our attraction hadn't dulled one bit. After a whirlwind trip, he demanded a real phone number this time. So I left him with my mother's--she could scare away any man with her talks of babies and marriage--and flew back home.<br /><br />I'd thought it was funny, until the following week when he rang the bell at Mom's house for Sunday night dinner. The crazy, gorgeous man had won over my mother and taken an eight-week assignment in my city. He proposed we spend that time screwing each other out of our systems.<br /><br />Eight weeks of mind-blowing sex with no strings attached? What did I have to lose?<br /><br />Nothing, I thought.<br />It's just sex, not love.<br />But you know what they say about the best <i>laid </i>plans...
