The Endgame

A Brother’s Best Friend Sports Romance


By Bianca Borell

Hosted by DS Book Promotions






Available on Kindle Unlimited


Every girl with a brother grows up with one fundamental rule: his best friend is off limits. That’s one rule she longs to break when he crashes into her life. 


Amelie Weston has been taking the safe path for as long as she can remember. Not disappointing her parents by pursuing the career she wants. And not pursuing the guy she’s been crushing on.


But she’s tired of being the good girl.


Her brother’s best friend is pushing her to stop being a people pleaser and open the bakery of her dreams. Little does he know he’s also at the top of the list of her heart’s greatest desires… and he’s making himself impossible to resist.


Levi Kingston fully intends to become a legend on the field as one of the best players ever. He must stay focused and work relentlessly toward his goal. He doesn’t have time for distractions… until he meets his best friend’s sister, and his well-laid plan is challenged. 


Bad timing, responsibilities, and loyalty to her brother keep them apart. But the connection between them only grows stronger. Their feelings become impossible to ignore, and the fight against them is pointless.


Will they take a chance on love? Or waste an opportunity for long-awaited happiness?

Waking up in Vegas, not remembering what happened the night before, is probably a standard thing that happens in this town. A town filled with flowing alcohol and unmitigated debauchery is bound to lead to some memory loss.

It’s never happened to me. Until today.

Today I woke up in a hotel room in Vegas—the place that’s supposed to be my sanctuary after finding out that my boyfriend of a year was cheating on me—with a man in my bed. An incredibly sexy man with a muscular back that women would swoon for.

Until I realize . . . this hot, gorgeous man is my ex’s brother.

Oh and there’s a wedding ring on my finger.

This trip is definitely not going as expected, and this relationship will drop grenades into both of our lives.

Yet I’m starting to believe that I don’t care about the destruction, because this is the brother I’d wanted all along.

Waking up Married in Las Vegas is part of the Hot Vegas Nights series. About Hot Vegas Nights:
The Vegas Strip is the gateway to your wildest fantasies. Where debauchery rules and depravity runs rampant. Elusive billionaires, celebrity bad boys, tantalizing dancers, master mixologists, and sexy tattoo artists are all within reach.

Waitressing part-time at a small town bar and crashing in my older brother’s guest room isn’t where I pictured myself at twenty-five. Yet, that’s where I end up after finding my fiancé buried seven inches deep in my best friend on our kitchen counter.
Needing a break from my disaster of a life, I let my brother convince me to join him in Las Vegas for a friend’s wedding. Being Sin City has me discovering things about myself that I never knew—like my apparent inability to turn down a dare.
That’s how I end up in a chair on the main stage of a strip club getting a panty-melting lapdance meant for the bride. It’s like a scene straight out of my filthiest fantasies. The dancer is sexy as sin, but being the sole focus of a man whose intense gaze burns down to the deepest parts of me has me feeling more than a little out of depth.
As an entertainer at one of the hottest male-only revue clubs on The Vegas Strip, it’s my job to fuel women’s fantasies. Despite the stereotypes about men in my profession—I’m no playboy. I don’t have a different woman in my bed every night, and I never mess around with women from the club.
It’s a night like any other when a routine dance for a bachelorette party has me locking eyes with a gorgeous woman who makes the rest of the world fall away. I’ve never felt such an intense attraction. Something about her has me wanting to break all my rules. So, when the night is over and I’m unable to get her out of my head, I promise myself I’ll shoot my shot if I ever see her again.
As if the universe is giving me a sign, an impromptu favor for a friend puts me at the wedding she’s attending the very next night. She’s only in Vegas for a short time and getting involved might end in heartbreak, but for her—I’m ready and willing to take the risk.

Claudette Langdon

Is recently divorced and sole owner to a five star hotel on the strip. She’s not looking for love, especially with the young valet half her age. She knows he played a part in her ex-husband’s double life and now, she wants revenge.

Noah Masterson

Could have his pick of any woman who crosses his path, and he has, but he’s not interested in settling down. Not when his sights are set on a career of becoming a professional poker player. One dumb mistake leads to a debt owed and soon he’s doing whatever it takes to stay alive.

The Vegas Strip is the gateway to your wildest fantasies. Where debauchery rules and depravity runs rampant. Ellusive billionaires, celebrity bad boys, tantalizing dancers, master mixologists, and sexy tattoo artists are all within reach.

During these 18 Hot Vegas Nights, you’ll take a chance on love, lose yourself in entertainment, and gamble your heart away!
Seventeen books are all written with your pleasure in mind.

The son of Hollywood elite, Jagger Crawford was content to live off his parents’ fame while spending his days and nights participating in one drunken orgy after another. When it came to salacious publicity, he was a walking, talking headline. Jagger was a lost cause, or so the gossip mongers said.

Image consultant Amelia “Lia” Franks believed otherwise. Even after finding out that her first client is Hollywood’s most notorious bad boy, she is determined to do what no other has been able to do: redeem the so-called “unredeemable”.

Lia accompanies him to Las Vegas for what Jagger thinks will be a week of debauchery. Once there, though, she begins to realize there is more to Jagger Crawford than meets the eye. His larger-than-life personality is only a small part of him. There is so much more beneath the surface.

Good girls like bad boys, but that isn’t true for her. Jagger is simply a client and nothing more. Or is he? Is that half-truth as fake as the relationship they have to maintain around his friends? Or is it entirely possible that when seeking redemption, they have found something more…

Spend a couple of hot Vegas nights with Jagger and Lia to find out….

*Book ends on a cliff hanger*

“I fell in love with these two and I can’t get enough of them. The ending ripped my heart out and stomped on it. I was hooked from page 1. This was so good!”- Goodreads Review

“I love you.” Make those words make this right.

“I love you!” Aly’s words are fierce as she demands me to hear them. “I’ve always loved you. Because despite all the betrayal and lies, I know it isn’t your fault, it’s mine. And maybe pity looks better on me than you. But I loved you way more than I ever knew I could. And I never want to love anyone else the way I allowed you to destroy me. How pathetic did it make me look?” Her face is in torment, and my air is choking for fresh starts.

“Don’t say that. Don’t ever say that, please.” There is evidence in my eyes, and I don’t want to release the pain yet. It is mine to be punished with.

“Okay, Lad, I think we’ve said enough.” Alyeska wipes her face and hands, but I can’t be done. She starts to walk away, and I follow her. Rush tries to stop me but it is impossible to let the woman I love more than swimming leave my life.

“It was real.” I bend my head down to the grass.

“Maybe to you, but to me, I didn’t know the difference.” Aly doesn’t look back as she walks away. I don’t blame her. I don’t blame anyone, except myself.

What do a grumpy sheriff and a perky midwife have in common? Absolutely nothing…other than an undeniable attraction to one another.

Sheriff Chase Calhoun is a driven man and as loyal as they come. Even though he admits to being a grumpy small-town sheriff, he loves his job and protecting the people in it. When it comes to his heart, though, he keeps a wall around it. The only people he lets in are his family members.

After putting a halt to the corruption in Missoula, things have just started to settle down, leaving him with too much time to think about his past. But then, a damsel in distress with an inexplicable, alluring personality sets her sights on him.

Atley Eastyn uprooted her ten-year-old spunky daughter and mother from Louisiana and hired on to be the new midwife in a place worlds away from the Bayou. When her Land Rover breaks down on a one-way bridge between two towns, she’s left in a position she doesn’t like. Atley has always been a self-sufficient woman, but now she finds herself in a situation where she needs help.

When the gorgeous, larger-than-life sheriff arrives to help her, she’s instantly smitten…until he opens his mouth to speak. He’s a tall, hunky cowboy with a grumpy personality, but Atley is determined to peel away all his protective layers to see the man underneath it all.

Can she get past his grumpiness? Will he open his heart and let her in? A simple, slow kiss from this alluring woman just might have him breaking all his rules.

Kiss Her Slow is the suspenseful fourth book in the Whiskey River West romantic western series. If you like gallant heroes, tender moments, and swoon-worthy steam, then you’ll love Kelly Moore’s passionate tale.

A trip to Vegas to celebrate my best friend’s wedding?
Yes, please!
I’m ready for warm weather, a little gambling, an epic bachelorette party, and, of course, being a bridesmaid for one of my oldest and best friends.
What I’m not ready for is how hot her younger brother has become. The last time I saw Corey, he was a shy, scrawny kid in high school. Now, he’s neither shy nor scrawny, he’s a successful business owner, and he’s mastered the art of flirting … mainly with me!
Don’t get me wrong––I like having a good time and I’m not opposed to having a weekend fling. But this is my best friend’s brother, not a stranger I’ll never see again. Should I give into temptation, or play it cool while we’re in Vegas?


When your one-night stand is your new boss…

I wasn’t much of a gambler, but on my first night in Vegas I rolled the dice with a sexy stranger. What did I have to lose? Everyone knows what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas. I lived out an erotic fantasy most women only dreamed about. It was a souvenir you couldn’t buy in any gift shop. My own dirty little secret.
It was a harmless one-night affair until Mr. Tall, Dark, and Handsome wasn’t so anonymous anymore. He was my new boss. Outside of the bedroom he was a complete jerk and determined to see me fail. I desperately needed this job and so I pretended I didn’t know about the tattoos on his arms or the monster hiding in his pants. Professional was the name of the game, but… the man was hot as hell and dangerous as the devil himself.


My self-control was marginal at best, and beautiful women were my weakness. So, when my father threatened to fire me if I had one more office fling, I committed to keeping my libido at bay. Vegas was full of lovely ladies who didn’t work at Mystique. I wasn’t about to throw away my destiny of becoming CEO of one of the biggest hotels in Vegas.
My resolve was firm until she walked into my office. I never thought I’d see the fiery redhead again, but there she was looking all tempting and desirable in her pencil skirt and silk blouse. I knew what was hiding under those clothes and it set my blood on fire. The memory of our night together played over and over like a movie I couldn’t hit pause on. There was only one solution… she had to go.


This pitch could make or break my career.

Not only will it set a personal record for the biggest account I’ve ever landed, but it could set my newfound company three years ahead of schedule for expansion.
Thank god I’ve got Nate Bellinger on my team.
Even though I had my reservations hiring the sexiest man I’ve ever laid eyes on – he more than meets my expectations with his hard work and determination. Together, we’ve formed a solid team and play off each other perfectly.
As we wait for the final verdict, I begrudgingly take Nate up on his offer for a night on the town. After all, this is Vegas and I need to let the chips fall where they may.
Imagine my surprise when I wake up the next morning to find we’ve not only won the campaign, but I’m apparently married to the man I’ve only ever let myself fantasize about.
The kicker of it all – he has no intentions of letting me go.
But what will it mean once we leave Vegas?
