He’s the man she loves to hate . . .

Olivia Kane’s wedding day has just imploded spectacularly. Shots lined up at the bar? Bring it. Hot stranger on the hook? Come on down. What this party does not need is six feet and change of home-grown Texas cockiness in the form of her brother’s best friend, the man who broke her heart seven years ago.

She’s the woman he has to have . . .

Flynn Cross won’t stand by while Liv finds sensual solace in the arms of a stranger, not when his own hard-for-her body is more than up for the task. For one week, he’ll make her honeymoon-for-one a sizzling party for two.

Breaking the rules, one steamy night at a time . . .

But the taboo they’re breaking is only the beginning . . . and Flynn’s part in Liv’s wedding debacle could bring about their end.


EVEN THE SCORE (Tall, Dark, and Texan, #1)


He’ll make her an offer she can’t refuse…

Actress Tess McKenzie is performing in the Tenth Circle of Showbiz Hell—dinner theater. All she really wants is to start a theater of her own. Then Tess receives an offer she can’t refuse. She’ll get her funding…if she pretends to be the fiancée to her nemesis, Texan property tycoon Hunter Dade. If she’s going to pull this off, she’ll need all the luck she can get. Break a leg, indeed.

On the verge of a big business deal, Hunter needs to hire a fiancée. He hasn’t quite forgiven Tess for ruining his wedding, but when their chemistry goes from combative to straight-up lust, the “no sex” clause in their mutually beneficial arrangement is tested. Which is a serious problem, because if Tess isn’t careful, she’ll go from breaking a leg to breaking her heart…

TAKING THE SCORE (Tall, Dark, and Texan, #2)


His office temptation is now his full-blown fantasy…

Paying down her sister’s debts has left Emma Strickland with little more than the thrift store suit on her back. And as if the suckfest couldn’t get worse, she’s forced to moonlight as a waitress to support herself and her cat. At a strip club. Her uptight, sexy-as-hell boss Brody Kane can never find out.

Texas property tycoon Brody Kane hired Emma for her spreadsheet skills, but her prim and proper demeanor sealed the deal. There’s no room in his life for a sexy distraction … and yet, he can’t stop lusting after the delicious Ms. Strickland. And then he takes an important client to a Chicago strip club and gets the worst lap dance in adult entertainment history. From Emma.

Now that he knows his office good girl has a naughty streak, Brody makes it his mission to uncover her secrets, one steamy, illicit, over-the-desk encounter at a time. But Emma is hiding more than her side job, and her final secret could end up destroying them both.

Book Synopsis: Olivia Kane’s wedding day has just imploded spectacularly. What her pity party does not need is six feet and change of home-grown Texas cockiness in the form of her brother’s best friend. But Flynn Cross won’t stand by while Liv finds sensual solace in the arms of a stranger. Not when his own hard-for-her body is more than up for the task…

Here's a Sneak Peek At One Week To Score...

When he didn’t hand over the towel as requested, just stood there gamely holding Liv’s gaze instead of dipping it over her nakedness like any other man with a pulse, she growled her frustration. Goddamn him, she was just a jumble of body parts in this man’s glittering blue eyes. It was all a game to Flynn—well, she was tired of playing every man’s fool.

“Just forget it.” She moved forward, ready to grasp the towel from his hands when he unfolded it and wrapped it around her shoulders. Still, he held her gaze. Not even a peek below her neck.

“What now, Livvie?” The teasing had gone from his voice, replaced by an unexpected huskiness. Mere inches of warm Mexican air separated their chests—his unfortunately covered, hers indisputably naked. Yet again, he had her on the back foot.

“I’ll call the airline. Reschedule my flight back to Houston.”

There was nothing for her here.

Flynn still held onto the edges of the towel and, instinctively, she inclined toward all that masculine heat. This involuntary action was soon followed by other wonders of the human body—her mouth went desert-dry, then watered, then dried up again.

Make up your minds, saliva glands!

He jerked the towel until they were chest to chest, hip to hip, core to…oh, Flynn. And then he bent his head and took control of lips that did not belong to him.

You’re a jerk, her brain was screaming. An unscrupulous, goat-fucking asswipe. But then something happened. Something incredible.

Her body surrendered. It knew what she needed, and she let herself off the hook because she’d had a rotten couple of days and deserved a moment’s bliss.

The kiss deepened, its velvet invasion obliterating her last shred of, albeit token, resistance. He swept his tongue inside, not sloppily, not stabbing, but with the perfect amount of heated pressure. Drowning in the feel and taste of him, she clutched at his broad shoulders, anxious for an anchor through this typhoon of sensation engulfing her.

He stopped, his breath fanning her lips with hot pants, and he licked his own lips, savoring her. There was something menacing in the action.

“Am I still the last guy on earth you’d open those pretty little thighs for, Liv?”

And we’re back. “You’re going to need more than an average kissing game to get with me, Cross.”

“Nothin’ average about that kiss.”

She sighed. “Don’t beg. It’s so unTexan.”

“Before the night’s through, sweets, I’ll be hearing your fuck-me-Flynn moans.”

“In your Liv-filled dreams.”

Still holding the towel, he finally let his gaze rove over her naked breasts. They perked up under his thorough examination.

“Not so far from the truth, that. But then you’ve never been out of my dreams for long.”

Here is My Review Of One Week To Score...

Olivia Kane has dreamed of her wedding day since she was a little girl, and now it's finally here, everything is in it's place, and she's ready to walk down the aisle and get to the good stuff... but before she can she finds her fiance getting to the "good stuff" with one of her bridesmaids. In that moment all she wants is to get as far away as she can, find a bar, get a little tipsy, and pick up guy that's willing to help her forget it all. So, she wanders into the hotel bar, starts downing the drinks, and is just about ready to attempt the third part of her mission when her brothers best friend and her arch nemesis intervenes, and he has a plan... A plan that involves them getting busy instead of her taking home a perfect stranger, she however, isn't willing to go along with his little plan, he hurt her and she isn't ready for forgiveness. Every other time he's walked away when things got tough between them, but this time he isn't going anywhere or taking no for a answer... question is, is she strong enough to resist him??

The minute Flynn Cross sees woman he loves drowning her sorrows in alcohol and trying to pick-up another man in a hotel bar, he possessive side kicks in and he knows that it's time to stop hiding from the truth, and tell her how he feels. The idea of her turning to someone else for comfort is almost more than he can bare, for so long he's wanted to fix what he broke between them, and make his feelings for her known, but deep down he knows he's no good for her, and so he puts it off. But standing there now watching her hurt, is something he just can't ignore, she wants to bury her hurt in a night between the sheets with another man, so he devises a plan, one that has him as the other man... and one he hopes will get him one step closer to making her finally his..

The minute I started this seductive little story I was hooked, and knew immediately that there was no way I was walking away until I had devoured every last page! If there is one thing I know for certain about Ms. Meader, it's that she knows how to turn up the heat and give her readers a truly blissful, OH SO SATISFYING literary escape!! This series has been one of my absolute favorite's to discover, each title is equipped with undeniably sexy alpha that knows what he wants, how to get it, and isn't afraid to turn on his Texas charm to make it happen!! I have been looking forward to meeting Mr. Cross on a more personal level for some time now, and boy oh boy he did not disappoint!!! The minute he waltzed onto the page my interest was peaked, and I knew it was only matter of minutes before he completely lured me into his world, cast his sexy spell over me, and had me handing over my heart!! Between his smoldering good looks, dirty one liners, domineering personality, and complete dedication to the woman he loved there was no denying him... the man was pure literary heaven!!! 

If you like your fairy tales a little on the naughty side, and equipped with an alpha that is dedicated to giving you everything you could possibly want or desire...then you MUST meet the men of the Tall, Dark, and Texan series!!
