Bad Boy Ballers series finale! Includes an epic novella

length epilogue for Rafe and Peyton, Brooklyn and Delaney, and Calder and


The dark horse of the NFL. A superstar showgirl on the

Vegas strip. Their desire is taboo in ways you can’t even begin to imagine.

Calder Malone. Black sheep. Bad boy. Kicked off the Reno

Ravens and almost suspended from the NFL. The sexy center remains a fan

favorite now that he’s playing for Carolina Crush. And what Calder wants more

than anything is to prove his worth to the team that’s his last chance, the

family he disgraced, and the one woman he fell in love with years ago.

Unfortunately the comeback kid isn’t a boy anymore, and the

babe he wants was never his for the taking—for reasons that make him question

his sanity.

Reggie isn’t just a Vegas showgirl, a pretty face. She’s an

Air Force widow, a strong woman who’s piecing her life back together . . . And

maybe the man she always thought was out of her league and completely

off-limits just became fair game.

Off the field and offstage, what happens when Calder and

Reggie don’t stay in Vegas?

I was in a

bastard of a mood when the doorbell rang after I’d dropped the two

hundred-pound weight onto the rest. My chest burning, my ribs wracked with

agony, I curled up to my feet. Thought about a shirt. Thought, fuck it. It was probably just Brooks.

He’d become

my watchdog, checking in regularly, inviting me to his place for dinner with

him and Delaney, keeping the door open in case I needed to talk to someone

other than my sponsor.

towel I held.

this precise moment when Reggie lifted a bag in her hand and a smile on her

lips when I was pretty sure I’d never looked more threatening.

“I’ve got

some time off. Recuperation.” She angled a leg in tight faded jeans toward me.

“Sore tendon. Figured you’d know how to put me back together right as rain with

your PT background.”


Hooking the end of the towel into the waistband of my shorts, I rasped my hands

across the dark shade of stubble on my jaw, and she watched every goddamn

stroke. “You don’t look injured.”

“You do.”

Her gaze—challenging—dropped to the bruise on my ribs.


“You came

to check up on me.”

“So what if

I did?” She shrugged one shoulder.

“You don’t

have to worry about me anymore.”

“I can’t

just turn it off, Calder.”

“I don’t
