Description
01
Lars Anderson is an undercover cop investigating the dirty deeds of a powerful crime lord. Complicating matters is Lars’s innocent new neighbor, who may as well have a target on her back in this seedy neighborhood. Whether she wants it or not, she’s under his protection now.

Wendy Wilson is a poor college student who’s been on her own for some time. When she takes out an online ad looking for babysitting work, she finds herself in a dangerous predicament. But the one person who shows up to help her might be even more dangerous to her virtue than being held captive by an evil kingpin.
02
Sunny, eccentric Kindergarten teacher Jewel knows how to charm the typical private school parent. Vince, however, is the only one whose outward stubbornness provokes in her a nearly uncontrollable desire to stroke his beard, squeeze his dad bod and stare at him while he watches Burt Reynolds movies. Hey, whatever works to get more help for the PTA bake sale ...

Vince really wishes people would leave him alone. For the most part, they oblige. So why does a gorgeous, relentlessly upbeat Kindergarten teacher keep trying to include him in all this bougie PTA rigmarole? But ... if all this nonsense will help five-year-old Max fit in at this fancy school, fine. Just this once, he'll help; and then everybody'd better leave him alone.
03
Kickboxing instructor Grizz has been hiding his new hobby from his best friend Dylan because he knows she won't approve. After getting pummeled one night, he's forced to fess up the truth to her. When she comes over to patch him up, more emotional confessions tumble out and pretty soon these two are tangled up together in a spontaneous mattress-style wresting match.

Dylan can no longer deny her fantasy of getting pinned down by her best friend Grizz, the gentle giant who was there to teach her self defense when she ended a toxic relationship. She doesn't understand much about the world of mixed martial arts, and because of her family history, she's not sure if she can handle the stress of being the girlfriend of an MMA fighter. But Grizz will do whatever it takes to fight for their love.
