More Than Luck by Casey Cameron
It’s never too late to play for keeps.
Drey Harper isn’t looking for love; he had more than enough heartbreak after a betrayal cost him everything five years ago. Now at 40, he’s the art director for the hit collectible card game Legendary Pairs. Between long hours at work and countless anonymous hookups, Drey’s life seems pretty full…until the day he meets Lucas Cho.
In the world of Legendary Pairs, 24-year-old Lucas Cho is a superstar. He plays for big money and parties like a rock star, and his arrogant swagger gets him what he wants, at the gaming table or in bed. But when a chance encounter with Drey in a crowded bar leaves him wanting more, all his fortune and skills count for nothing.
The company thinks Lucas’s glamorous playboy lifestyle is good for business, but it’s going too far–Lucas is spinning out of control, and Drey has been sent to clean up the mess and save Lucas’s sponsorship. With a major tournament coming up and Lucas’s contract with Legendary Pairs on the line, it’s up to Drey to keep him out of the bottle and walking that line.
For Lucas, the stakes have never been higher, but the game he’s playing has nothing to do with cards and everything to do with the stoic older man who’s captured his attention. Drey knows a relationship between them is out of the question–Lucas is too young, too reckless, too broken–but the more time he spends in Lucas’s company, the more he wants the beautiful disaster he knows he shouldn’t have.
More Than Luck is a 78,000 word stand-alone May/December romance with an enemies-to-lovers story, plenty of heat, and a happily-ever-after ending. It is the second book in the Legendary Pairs series, which can be read in any order.
Sliding Into Home by Aubrey Cullens
Oscar wants to play it safe —
Oscar Rosales Ortega is the first openly gay player in Major League Baseball. The fans call him “Oro” — both for his initials and for his golden touch with a bat — and say he’s destined for the Hall of Fame.
Oscar knows that the men in his life are more interested in the baseball star than in the man, and he’s learned to enjoy the perks of his celebrity while protecting his heart.
Danny won’t ask for more —
Buried by his late mother’s medical expenses, Danny Sawyer foregoes college and takes every job he can get just to keep his head above water. When he opens his home to friends in need, the makeshift family they create gives him everything he could ask for: people to love.
Danny is determined to give the people he cares about what they need. Taking care of others makes him happy. It’s never occurred to him to want something for himself.
Some things are meant to be —
From the moment they meet, Oscar and Danny are pulled toward each other. Oscar has been hurt, and his feelings scare him. Danny has never looked at a man, and his attraction surprises him.
They each have their reasons for not believing, but in the aftermath of violence, if they can learn to trust — and are brave enough to risk their hearts — these two men who aren’t looking will find the very thing they need… love.
