This billionaire playboy has finally met his match.
Hard and Fast, an all new steamy friends-to-lovers, billionaire boss romance from New York Times bestselling author Mari Carr, is out now!
Penny is tired of being seen as the gamer, the crazy cat lady, the mom-jeans-wearing, YouTube-bingeing, quirky IT girl. She’s barreling toward 29 and ready to make some changes . . . in her appearance and her nonexistent love life. But she’s smart enough to know she needs help—and who she needs it from. Her billionaire playboy boss, Gage Russo.
Bachelor Gage’s life is typically full of excitement, on the work front and in the bedroom. He’s never lacking for female company and he rarely sleeps alone. Regardless, lately, he can’t shake feeling bored. That is, until Penny challenges him to a friendly wager . . . one he promptly loses. Her prize? Lessons in seduction—from him.
Lines get blurred as Gage pushes harder . . . moves faster . . . teaching Penny things she’s only ever fantasized about. But the playboy with all the smooth moves makes one big mistake when he fails to tell his sexy student that the lessons are no longer fake, and what he wants from her is very, very real.
Keep reading for a look inside Hard and Fast!
“Come here,” he said in that deep, sexy voice.
“What?” She was already sitting next to him, so she wasn’t entirely sure—
Gage removed all free will when he reached out, pulling her toward him until her face was only an inch away from his. Sitting this close, she could see the flecks of green in his light brown eyes. And before she could stop herself, she reached up to brush back the lock of brown hair that fell over his forehead.
He blinked a couple of times, her affectionate, familiar action obviously catching him off-guard.
“We’re going to pick up where we left off.”
“Where we left off?” she asked stupidly, his close proximity causing a complete system failure as far as her brain was concerned.
“The lessons, Penny.”
Again, he said her first name. A million people in her life had called her Penny, but when Gage said it…she melted inside.
“The kissing lesson?” she whispered.
“Among other things.”
He closed the scant distance between them, true to his word.
Penny had spent the last nine days trying to convince herself that Gage’s kiss wasn’t as amazing as she remembered.
She was right.
Because that first mind-blowing kiss paled in comparison to this one.
She loved the roughness of his beard against her face. His fingers found their way to her hair, his hands closing around two fistfuls, using it to hold her close, to tilt her head to the left so he could kiss her more deeply. She recalled his comment about men liking long hair.
When Gage released her hair, he lowered his hands to her waist and lifted, never breaking the union of their lips as he pulled her over his lap. She straddled his thighs and draped her hands around his neck.
And that was when she felt it. Evidence of Gage’s attraction.
She pressed her pussy closer, the hard ridge of his erection right there beneath his pants.
He was hard. For her!
He’d come straight to her apartment from work, so while he’d taken off his suit jacket, he was still wearing his dress shirt, though he’d loosened his tie. She toyed with the knot.
Gage broke the kiss. “Take it off.”
She looked at him.
“My tie,” he added. “Take it off.”
She slid the silk knot free, then pulled it from the collar with one long, slow glide.
“Unbutton my shirt,” he commanded.
Penny was helpless to resist that sexy tone, and she’d spent a little too much—okay, a lot too much—time imagining him shirtless.
She unbuttoned his shirt, her gaze locked on the progress of her fingers. She bit her lower lip nervously, then opened the shirt completely. Gage took over, untucking the shirt and shrugging it over his broad, muscular shoulders.

“I wanted to surprise you.”
“I am surprised,” I said, laughing nervously.
I motioned toward our balcony. “Why don’t we sit outside? The weather’s still nice.”
Clifford glanced at Santino then nodded. “Sounds like a good idea.”
Just like Clifford, I was eager to get away from Santino who looked ready to kill my fiancé. And not just that, I felt strangely guilty toward Santino. As if I were cheating on him by talking to Clifford when it should be the other way around.
“You don’t look happy. Am I interrupting anything?” Clifford asked with a glance toward Santino as we sank down on the chairs outside. Because it was getting dark and only March, the temperature had dropped considerably from my stroll with Santino earlier. I shivered but rather freeze to death than bear the strained atmosphere with Santino and Clifford in one room.
“Of course not. I’m just busy with fashion school, that’s all.” I wasn’t even that busy yet. Most of my courses so far were introductory because the Spring semester was only about to begin.
Clifford gave me a boyish smile. Maybe it was because I spent so much time with Santino but Clifford seemed too young. “That’s why I came on a weekend. I thought surprising your fiancée like that was a good start to a marriage.”
It probably was for a love marriage, which ours decidedly was not. The man I was close to falling in love with watched us from the sidelines and would never be my husband. And I feared that the man who’d become my husband and I was supposed to love, would never own my heart, not in the way Santino already did. It wasn’t love because I wouldn’t allow myself to feel that way, but my heart was definitely beating for Santino in a way that wasn’t healthy considering my planned future.
Cora Reilly is the author of the Born in Blood Mafia Series, The Camorra Chronicles and many other books, most of them featuring dangerously sexy bad boys. Before she found her passion in romance books, she was a traditionally published author of young adult literature.
Cora lives in Germany with a cute but crazy Bearded Collie, as well as the cute but crazy man at her side. When she doesn't spend her days dreaming up sexy books, she plans her next travel adventure or cooks too spicy dishes from all over the world.
Despite her law degree, Cora prefers to talk books to laws any day.

For 48 hours, they were married. But that was a long time ago.
Seventeen years ago, Maggie Christopher told one little white lie, and it has been wreaking havoc on her life ever since. At the time, the lie was worth it—it meant she got to marry the man she loved, however brief a marriage it was—but now she’s ready to finally move on. But in order to do that, she needs to find the man whose heart she broke all those years ago and finally apologize.
Knox Channing has everything he could have asked for in life—after a career in the Navy SEALs, he’s now running a thriving security firm with his two best friends. The only thing that would make it better is if he wasn’t the lone single guy in his friend group. But after having had his heart broken once, he’s not looking to go back there. Or at least that’s what he thought before Maddie showed up in his office.
He swore that he would never let himself fall for anyone again, much less for the woman who once broke his heart. But sometimes you fall in love with the most unexpected person at the most unexpected time. Twice.

I take his hostility personally, only to discover he doesn’t like anyone. Little does he realize that my stubborn streak rivals his. As it turns out, Nash is the tortured hero my love story is missing. Too bad he’s very reluctant to fill that role. Thanks to a little luck—or a strike of lightning—he’s forced to face me. I’ll break down his walls as if this soul searching depends on it. Or maybe I’ll end up getting lost in him instead. About the Author: Harloe Rae is a USA Today & Amazon Top 5 best-selling author.
