Sleeping with your roommate is a bad idea, right?

Megan Davidson is scrambling to find a new place after Abby, her roommate and best friend, decides to move in with her boyfriend Lance.  With just a week until classes start, the open spot left in Lance’s old house looks like her best option.  She moves in with Matt and Chris, hot football players who are shameless flirts and notorious players.

Chris Watkins is playing his final season of college football before life as he knows it is over.  He’d dreamed of going pro, but the NFL never scouted him and now he’s in self-destruct mode—not bothering to go to classes or even try to graduate.  With everything falling apart, he can’t even lose himself in the jersey chasers that are always hanging around.  Megan caught his attention over the summer, and with her constantly under his nose, he can’t get her out of his head.

Sparks fly when these two finally give in to their attraction.  Will these roommates turned lovers manage to keep things light and easy like they planned?  Or will their flame burn hotter than anyone is ready for?

If you love steamy college romance full of hot athletes, fiery heroines, and chemistry that melts the pages, get Convenient Fall now!

Excerpt

Sullivan waited until his girl got a good grip on Megan’s arms and stepped backward as fast as he could in the water. It was enough that Megan lost her balance and Chris couldn’t keep her upright with the other chick dragging Megan down by her arms.

She came up laughing, pushing her hair out of her face and wiping the water out of her eyes. She splashed water at his chest. “You let me fall off!”

He grinned down at her. “I couldn’t help it! You got taken out.”

She poked out her lower lip in a fake pout that only lasted a second before she smiled again. “We’re supposed to be a team. That means we go down together. Aren’t football players supposed to understand the importance of teamwork?”

“Are you questioning my loyalty?” She laughed at him, and he grinned back, his eyes on her mouth. Her lips were plump and red, begging to be kissed. He loved the way she looked, her hair wet and slicked back, her face lit up with a smile.

“It looks like they’re going again. Do you want to keep playing?”

Megan’s voice pulled his attention back from his wandering thoughts. Giving in to his lust with her was probably a bad idea. Unless maybe she was interested too …

“Chris?”

“Hmm?”

She gestured at the others. “Are we going to play again?”

Man, she was distracting. He nodded once and grinned. “Let’s go.”

He dropped down again and she climbed back on. He suppressed a sigh as he realized this was the closest he was going to get to feeling her thighs around his head, and it wasn’t from the direction he wanted. But she was his roommate. He needed to remember that.

They played two more rounds of chicken fight. They lost the next round early but won the one after that. Megan sat on his shoulders with her arms raised. “Whoo! We won!”

He laughed, then maneuvered her so she turned and slid down his front. They were pressed together for a moment, her breasts squished against his torso, the bare skin of her belly against his lower abdomen. Megan looked up into his face, and he saw her brown eyes get darker. He dropped his eyes to her lips. They were parted on an indrawn breath and he wanted to kiss them so bad.

She broke the spell of the moment, stepping back, breaking the contact between them, and he immediately missed the feel of her body pressed against his. “Thanks. I had fun.” She glanced over her shoulder toward the shallow end, then looked back at him. “I’m, um. I’m going to go get a drink.”

One summer is all they have …

Abby comes from a world where men don’t stick around.  Lance’s interest does nothing but put her on guard, especially when she finds out he’ll be leaving in less than two months.  With two years left of college and a mom who relies on her for everything, Abby doesn’t have the patience for relationships that are doomed from the start.  But Lance’s persistence wears down her defenses.  Abby convinces herself they’ll just have a summer fling, and she’ll be able to come through unscathed.

Will Abby be able to maintain her distance?  Or will they both be heartbroken when the summer ends?

Excerpt

Chris held the restaurant door open for Megan. It was after two on a Sunday and the usual lunch crowd had cleared, so they got a table right away. He’d opted for Fire, the fancy pizza place. He didn’t know what was expected for a date on a Sunday afternoon. Megan was in jeans and he wore shorts, so a really upscale place didn’t seem like a good choice. He’d been here a couple of times and the food was good.
 
Once they’d ordered their pizza and the waitress had gone, Chris fidgeted a little, tapping his fingers on the table.
 
Megan studied him over the top of her glass. “Nervous?”
 
He stopped his hands through sheer force of will. “Nope. Why?” He managed to keep his voice casual. Good.
 
A grin spread across Megan’s face. “You’re bouncing your leg like crazy.”
 
Shit. He stopped that too. “I don’t know what you’re talking about.” That casual tone he’d managed before? Nope, gone now. He was such a bad liar sometimes. Megan just laughed at him and he smiled. “Fine. I don’t take girls out very often.”
 
“How often is not very often?” Megan’s tone was dry, and her lips twitched with suppressed laughter.  He appreciated that she was trying not to laugh in his face, even though part of him was kind of annoyed that she found it so amusing that he was flustered. He didn’t get flustered with girls, dammit. But he didn’t date girls either.
 
He screwed up his face like he was deep in thought. “Hmm. About never.”
 
Megan lost her fight with her laughter and let it out. She didn’t hold back when she laughed—no simpering giggles like so many girls used when they flirted with him.
 
Her laughter died down and she studied him again, the humor now gone from her face. “So, this is a date.”
 
He nodded and took a drink of his soda, wondering where she was going with this. Hadn’t they established this morning that this was a date?
 
“Does that mean we’re dating?”
 
He shrugged. “What would that mean, exactly?”
 
“Don’t worry, you don’t have to take me out to eat all the time or anything.” She flashed him a big grin and he smiled back. “But no fucking anyone else while we’re together. If you want to end it, have the balls to end it with me before you hook up with another chick.”
 
It was his turn to study her face. The waitress showed up then with their food. What impeccable timing. He waited for her to leave before he returned his attention to Megan. “Sounds fair. And it goes both ways.”
 
“Of course.” She maintained eye contact, her brown eyes holding his like she was trying to see inside him without giving anything away. Finally she flashed her smile again and got a slice of pizza.
 
Their conversation relaxed after that. She seemed satisfied with his answers about their relationship, such as it was. Relationship. That was a loaded word. Their … shit. He couldn’t come up with anything better than relationship. In any case, he was happy she didn’t push for more than he was able to give. Exclusivity didn’t seem like too big of a deal. Especially since he hadn’t wanted anyone else since he’d met her.

Excerpt

She started struggling again. With the way he held her, her breasts were pushed against his chest and they rubbed back and forth with her movements. He could feel his body start to react. “Matt told me to back off and leave you alone, so I did.” He spit out the words through gritted teeth.

Megan stopped struggling and looked up at him, eyes wide. “Why would he do that?”

He thrust his now hard cock against her belly. “You really don’t know the answer to that question?”

Megan’s eyes grew even wider, and he couldn’t be sure in the dim light, but he thought her cheeks went a little pink. Who knew Megan could be made to blush? Her tongue darted out to wet her lips, and it was all Chris could do not to groan. “Why would …? What …? I don’t understand.”

In answer to her inarticulate questions, Chris pulled her closer and crushed his mouth to hers. She stiffened at first, but relaxed into him, opening for him when he began questing with his tongue. Her lips were soft, and he could taste the beer from the party. He wondered a little how much she’d had. She didn’t seem drunk.

When he pulled back, she was staring up at him, looking a little dazed. He released her, letting her step back. She brought a hand to her mouth, never taking her eyes from his. Her pupils were dilated, her eyes hooded. He felt smug that he’d managed to take her from pissed off to aroused with one kiss. Or maybe, like him, she’d already been aroused from their fighting. He reached for her free hand. “Let’s get out of here.”
