Boss Without Benefits- A Bad Dog Novel (The McGuire Brothers Book 1)

Last night, I met the funniest, sexiest single dad on the planet.

I also managed to get into the kind of co-ed naked trouble with him that involved a nurse, a shotgun, a feral turkey, and a pair of pliers. But all’s well that ends well, and we already have plans to meet up again.

It’s early days, but I’m already thinking Drew might be The One.

Then I show up to my new nanny gig and who steps out on the front porch, holding the cutest little redhead in the world?

Yep, that’s right. Drew is Andrew McGuire, my new boss, and he’s not about to date the nanny. His daughter’s happiness and stability are his top priority.

Considering I just fell in love with this precious, motherless girl at first sight, I would be inclined to agree with him. If it weren’t for one thing—my heart already has a Drew-shaped hole in it.

I’m pretty sure I would miss him, even if we’d never met.

But how to convince this amazing man that his heart—and his family—are safe with me? And that he should be my bosswith benefits? Forever.

Not Today Bossman- A Bad Dog Novel (The McGuire Brothers Book 2)

Barrett McGuire is the grumpiest, growliest, most frustrating man on the planet.
He’s also my boss, my first crush, and—three months ago—my one and only one-night-stand.

I’m pretty sure I’m already addicted to his body, but that doesn’t matter. After an empowering solo trip to the other side of the world—during which Barrett made no attempt to contact me or discuss said one night stand—I’ve realized I have to let go of this crush and move on. I’ve wasted enough time pining for a man who doesn’t feel the way I do.

Now that I’m home, I’m determined to keep the walls around my heart high and impenetrable.

Then Barrett adopts the world’s ugliest dog because he knows how much I love animals. He also texts to say how much he missed me, then shows up at my house simply to devour my lady parts (while saying naughty things that give me a new appreciation for his bossy side).

He tells me he wants to change, to be what I need, then proves it with the most romantic “just one bed” weekend ever.

But can Barrett and I make it work in the real world?
Or will the scars on his heart ruin our second chance the way it did our first?

Totally Booked UK Review: Wren fell in love with Barrett when she was 12 years old, but as a friend to one of his younger sisters, he has never seen her as anything more than that. Working alongside him in the OB-GYN office in Bad Dog they share a cup of tea at the end of the day and chat. A late-night rescue from the local honky-tonk with Tatum has a slightly drunken Wren and Barrett sparring as he attempts to get her home safely – without Kyle (the turkey) attacking her on the porch. But finally crossing the line seems perfect until he sneaks out whilst she is in the bathroom and has her fleeing to Thailand for three months.

As the oldest McGuire sibling, Barrett has always had people around him but somehow feels as though he is standing on the sidelines looking in. His divorce knocked him for six, even though he is on good terms with his ex and even planning on attending her upcoming wedding. He has spent the last three months analysing and learning all there is to know about Wren after their night together. Pleased to have her home after her impromptu sabbatical but still unable to openly communicate his feelings for her.

They regain their friendship even though Wren is not the same person who left Bad Dog. They find their lives interconnecting as they deal with patients, accept wedding invitations, and a conference and decide to take a risk on love but the path of true love never runs smoothly and when Barrett overhears some gossip will he choose to take it to heart and lose the woman he loves?

Boss Me Around- A Bad Dog Novel (The McGuire Brothers Book 3)

Christian McGuire is the last person I should be asking to boss me around in bed. Sure, he’s a bonafide Sex God, but he’s also my co-worker AND my shiny new brother-in-law.

But after a few too many tequila shots one night, I shoot him a text, asking him to be my smut mentor.

As soon as I sober up, I’m MORTIFIED, of course. I try to steal his cell phone and destroy the evidence, only to find I’m too late. Christian has already read my message.

Even worse? He wants no part in helping me ditch my ancient virginity.

That is, unless I agree to a few rules…
1. We never talk about Sex Club.
2. We never get caught by our friends or family.
3. We commit to fulfilling each other’s wildest fantasies for one steamy month until he leaves town. No holds barred, no shame, no limits.

I agree without hesitation, confident that I can have a month of earth-shattering nookie and walk away without a broken heart.

But the more time I spend in the sack with this wild, funny, secretly tender man, the more I fear I’ll break the biggest rule of all–Never Fall for Mr. Off Limits.

Kind of a Sexy Jerk- A Bad Dog Novel (The McGuire Brothers Book 4)

So let me get this straight… For the next few days I’ve got myself a grumpy fake husband who’s also kind of my…bodyguard?

I guess that’s a better way to spend the weekend than binge-watching reality television, especially since it’s kind of my fault we’re on the run from the mob and I need a protector.


But why does the man watching my back have to be my lifelong crush? I’ve known Matty McGuire since we were kids and crushed on this stubborn, bossy, secretive, but loyal and heroic man nearly as long.

I’m determined to keep that part to myself, of course. But once we’re fake Mr. and Mrs., soon we’re not only sharing a hotel room but a hot kiss and an even hotter night between the sheets.

I’m over the moon, but when Matty’s secrets turn out to be the kind that could get a girl tossed into the Witness Protection Program, I realize I’m also in over my head.

Can we find a way to make love work in the real world? Or will this one, red-hot weekend on the run from the mob be our first…and our last?
