Her body began doing things she didn't want it to do. Like rubbing against him, arching into his erection, cradling it with her heat.

HARD CRUSH is a sizzling standalone romance from USA TODAY Bestselling author Mira Lyn Kelly. A jaded billionaire. The girl who got away. A second chance has never been so sexy. ABBY Technology has it out for me. And I'm not talking about my ever-ailing phone or the temperamental Smart Board in my classroom. I'm talking about the internationally hailed "Tech Genius" formerly known as the boy I used to love. It was bad enough seeing that cocky smile staring back at me from my newsfeeds, the gossip sites, and-fine-the scorchingly hot men's fitness magazine I bought in a moment of weakness. But now he's back home, teasing me with the memories I've tried to leave behind, crowding into my space and taunting me with the kiss I can't resist. I know it's only a matter of time before I lose him again. He's already told me he isn't staying, warned me he's changed. I know better than to let him get too close, so why can't I push him away? HANK They call me a visionary. An innovator. Hell, last week a headline touted me as the billion-dollar geek keeping Silicon Valley's panties wet. Try living that down. Strip away the media BS, and I'm just a tech-minded guy with my eyes on the future and no time for a past I can't change. So what am I doing following the sweet sound of its laugh back to the woman who passed on our chance at forever? I tell myself all I want is to say hello. To see her smile. Just a few minutes to pretend we're still the "us" I thought would never end. But once I've had a taste of the too tempting woman she's become, a few minutes isn't enough. The man I am today is used to getting what he wants, and I want her. The problem? She wants the guy I used to be. Ten years later, all that's changed is... everything.

From Barbara Delinsky, the New York Times bestselling author of Blueprints and Sweet Salt Air, a brand-new novel about a woman in hiding finding the courage to face the world again. Mackenzie Cooper took her eyes off the road for just a moment but the resulting collision was enough to rob her not only of her beloved daughter but ultimately of her marriage, family, and friends—and thanks to the nonstop media coverage, even her privacy. Now she lives in Vermont under the name Maggie Reid, in a small house with her cats and dog. She’s thankful for the new friends she’s made—though she can’t risk telling them too much. And she takes satisfaction in working as a makeup artist at the luxurious local spa, helping clients hide the visible outward signs of their weariness, illnesses, and injuries. Covering up scars is a skill she has mastered. Her only goal is to stay under the radar and make it through her remaining probation. But she isn’t the only one in this peaceful town with secrets. When a friend’s teenage son is thrust into the national spotlight, accused of hacking a powerful man’s Twitter account, Maggie is torn between pulling away and protecting herself—or stepping into the glare to be at their side. As the stunning truth behind their case is slowly revealed, Maggie’s own carefully constructed story begins to unravel as well. She knows all too well that what we need from each other in this difficult world is comfort. But to provide it, sometimes we need to travel far outside our comfort zones. From a multimillion-selling master of women’s fiction, Before and Again is a story of the relationships we find ourselves in—mothers and daughters, spouses and siblings, true companions and fair-weather friends—and what kind of sacrifices we are or aren’t willing to make to sustain them through good times and bad.
