What happens when you call your rival opponent Daddy?
Erik’s whole life is indoor volleyball. He wasn’t born a talented player, but through hard work he has honed himself into a great one. With a competitive streak a mile wide, he’ll go to any length to win—even flirt with his opponents to rile them up.
After losing the chance to compete in nationals, Erik enters college with a stronger drive, throwing himself into his passion for the sport. Head back in the game, he will follow his dreams all the way. He trains harder than he ever has before, pushes himself to the limit, and spares no time for distractions.
But summer break from college brings a surprise run-in with his old rival, Sam. Seeing him forces every bitter feeling about losing to Sam’s team to the surface and Erik can’t resist the opportunity to get some revenge. It’s only meant to be a joke, something to get under Sam’s skin and fluster him. Erik doesn’t expect interest to reflect in his rival’s eyes, or for the flirtatious prank to stir a serious need inside of him. It would be one thing if it happened once, but Erik and Sam’s paths keep crossing, making it impossible for Erik to ignore these urges.
Erik has no idea they are both playing with fire and if he isn’t careful, it may get him burned.

A broken engagement.
Alyssa Carlisle arrives at her parent’s house in Florida nursing an unexpected heartbreak. She jumps at the chance for a no-strings-attached fling with the neighbors’ ridiculously sexy college-dropout-turned-real-estate-investor son. Marc’s hot—and every woman in Florida knows it. Half of them firsthand. Alyssa’s not immune; she just knows better than to expect anything beyond a hook-up. Once she set her sights on New York, she never looked back. Maybe once or twice, just to get a better glimpse of Marc’s butt. No harm in looking…
An ill-advised fling.
Marc’s wanted his aloof, ambitious neighbor for years, but she’s been thousands of miles away chasing her dream. He almost gave up the fantasy when she brought home a rich fiancé. Now their engagement’s off, and Marc’s not about to pass up his chance. But how can he convince her to take him seriously—when Alyssa’s on the rebound and leaving in a week?
A reality-TV-inspired dating contest.
An unexpected visit from Alyssa’s ex gives Marc the opportunity he needs—if he doesn’t mess it up. But Marc has a dream, too, one he’s worked toward for years. One of them will have to give. Blindsided by unexpected feelings, Marc and Alyssa fight for a future neither could have imagined.
