Graham is my brother's best friend. He’s always been my

protector and my confidant because he accepts me the way I am—and not

many do. I can’t imagine not having him in my life.

Our weekend

together was supposed to be a celebration. I graduated from college,

Graham got engaged and signed with a pro football team, and my brother

landed his dream job. It should have been the best time of our lives.

Except that the weekend started with me walking in on Graham's fiancée going down on my brother.


complicated the situation by having sex with Graham after that, but I

wanted to comfort him and, damn, when I saw desire in his eyes—for me—I

couldn’t say no. I’ve wanted him for so long.

Now he doesn’t want to see me. He says he has a darker side he needs to protect me from.

Where do we go from here? Do I try to pretend to be his friend again or push him to open up to me and possibly lose him forever?



with one of my best friends was not exactly a brilliant idea. It made

things complicated, and I didn't do anything that threw my life into

chaos.  The fiancée her brother Jack, had stolen had been part of my

life plan, one more step I was taking to be somebody.  Granted, I hadn't

been in love with my intended bride, but I didn't really know how to

love anybody.

I survived.

I pushed to achieve more.

I battled my way to the top of the heap in my pro football career..

I'm a total dick, and I don't want Lauren to see the side of me that would trample over anybody to work my way up in the world.


sees me as a hero, a title I'd never gain with anybody else in my life,

so I wanted to keep her sheltered from the hard realities of my life.  I

wanted her to continue to think I was a nice guy when I was really just

the opposite.     

We never should have crossed the line of going from friends to lovers.   


too much Lauren doesn't know about me, and I care enough about her that

I don't want her to share my pain and the darkness that never sees

daylight inside me.   

I want her, but she's a woman I can never have.  She's too smart, too sweet, and way too good for a guy like me.  

Unfortunately, pushing her away becomes much more difficult than I'd planned...

A brand new series set in a whole new world. 


Women are a perk of my lifestyle. I work hard. I deserve to play

harder. But I didn’t get on the Forbes List of Rising Entrepreneurs by

getting lost in the baggage and disruption that comes with dating. I’ve

seen dozens of men fail when they fall in love. Pathetic.


why I chose the Bachelor Tower. It was designed by a genius, my hero:

the late, Garry F. Sinclair. He created an all-male haven for ambitious

men who want to live like kings and play by their own rules. Casino

nights, a fully equipped gym and lap pool, cigar and Scotch bar, and a

media room with screens the size of the average movie theater. The list

is endless. I easily network with men trying to launch their careers or

those at the top who want to stay hungry. The best part: the tower

attracts women, beautiful women who hang out in the lobby bar and vie

for an invite upstairs. Easy, like fishing in a barrel.

Until Sinclair dies and Penny Fuller moves into the apartment next to me because the new owner doesn't share his vision.


agrees Penny can't stay. I don't want to get involved, but she doesn't

understand the lengths my fellow building mates will go to to get her

out. She's not only irresistibly sexy and painfully optimistic, she's

also in real danger.

Siding with her would be career suicide.

Betraying her was never my intention.













J.S. "Jan" Scott is a New York Times, Wall Street Journal and USA

Today bestselling author of steamy romance. She's an avid reader of all

types of books and literature. Writing what she loves to read, J.S.

Scott writes both contemporary steamy romance stories and paranormal

romance. They almost always feature an Alpha Male and have a happily

ever after because she just can't seem to write them any other way! She

lives in the beautiful Rocky Mountains with her husband and two very

spoiled German Shepherds.  









Ruth Cardello hit the New York Times and USA Today Bestsellers

Lists for the first time back in 2012.  Millions of sales are evidence

that her her books are akin to potato chips, addictive from the first

one. She has created a multi-series billionaire world with a combination

of escapism and realism that has gained her a faithful following of


What Kindle Reviewers write about her:

"Wow hot at every page. Heart stopping, fear raging, mind blowing wonderful."


a true fan of Ms. Cardello. I ran on to her first book a few years back

and have been hooked ever since. I could go on and on about the story

like of this book, but I'm not. All of her books are total page turners,

unique, heart wrenching, and I love them all. There isn't two alike in

the bunch and I feel like i know the characters personally. I personally

read 97 authors books. And I buy every book they put out. This author

is in my top 10. Great job and keep them coming."

"Love this

series. Got me to start reading again. I look forward to the next book.

Thank you for giving me the love of reading back."

Ruth Cardello

was born the youngest of 11 children in a small city in northern Rhode

Island. She spent her young adult years moving as far away as she could

from her large extended family. She lived in Boston, Paris, Orlando, New

York--then came full circle and moved back to New England. She now

happily lives one town over from the one she was born in. For her,

family trumped the warmer weather and international scene. She

was an educator for 20 years, the last 11 as a kindergarten teacher.

When her school district began cutting jobs, Ruth turned a serious eye

toward her second love- writing and has never been happier. When she's

not writing, you can find her chasing her children around her small farm

or connecting with her readers online.
