Showstopper (Vino and Veritas) by Regina Kyle
I swore I wouldn’t do this again. Mix sports, school, and sex. But right now the only thing standing between me and the NHL is six feet of frenemy packed into a pair of form-fitting jeans that have me thinking all kinds of things I shouldn’t. Mostly how to get him out of them.
I don’t just want Kolby. I need him. Because I’ve got to pass this theater class–yeah, I said theater–if I’m going to keep my spot on the team. When tutoring sessions turn into dates-not-dates over Shipley Cider at Vino and Veritas, I realize it’s going to be harder than I thought to keep my hands on my stick and off of Kolby. Worse, I think I might be falling for him. But I’m not ready for that. I want to keep this thing between us on the down-low for now.
But Kolby hates secrets.

Six months ago I was searching for a PA. Blake showed up at my door with everything he owned and never left. Since then, Blake has become my best friend. I trust him completely because Blake never lies to me.
We didn’t expect a rendezvous for sex through an app would turn into a nightmare. I don’t know how I’ll ever recover, but I know I can’t do it without Blake.
When Forrest asks me to put a hook-up in his schedule, I take care of it. I don’t think twice. I’ve never had any problem with any dating app, why would I expect one now?
I should have been more careful. I should have vetted his hook-up before I let him go by himself. I don’t know how Forrest can stand the sight of me, but he needs me now, and I won’t let myself fail him again.
Trigger warning: on-page descriptive (non-erotic) rape, and stalking.

He’ll die without touch.
Shae loses a little more of himself every time he uses his necromancy. Always cold, always touch-starved, the only thing that helps is human contact. But that’s hard to come by when those same dark powers scare everyone away. Nobody likes a necromancer.
Especially a paladin of the Radiant Order.
Arthur’s still bitter and broken after his last lover stabbed him in the back, and the last thing he needs is another brush with evil. When he agrees to escort the wandering necromancer north, he’s just doing a public service.
But he never expected Shae to be so clingy. Or distractingly attractive.
Shae has never felt an aura as warm and safe as Arthur’s. He craves the man’s touch—and more. But everyone always leaves him, and it’s just a matter of time before Arthur leaves him too.
Assuming the soul-stealing monsters don’t kill them first.
