Package Deal (Ruled Out Romances Book 2) by [Stastny, Charissa]

Angels come in different packages. 

Single mom Spring has no desire to date again, so she's pleasantly surprised at her best friend’s wedding when a handsome man’s flirtations charm, instead of annoy her. But when her toddler runs up and calls her Mommy, she can tell by his disgruntled reaction that her daughter is a deal-breaker. He can’t escape fast enough. 

Hudson Sandel is proud of his bachelor status even as he attends his little brother’s wedding as best man. Too bad the only woman who tempts him has a daughter that rules her out. Instant fatherhood isn’t on his agenda. But when the kid throws a tantrum, he swoops in to help keep her from ruining the special night. When he leaves though, he can’t stop thinking about the gorgeous blonde’s expression when he played hero to her child. It made him feel uncomfortably good. 

As fate, grocery shopping, and toddler tantrums keep throwing the angelic duo into Hudson's path, will he risk his heart and dreams on the package deal, or stick to the sure road leading to corporate success and glory?


In this new series of stand-alone romances, star-crossed lovers meet, but rule each other out. Yet life, with its quirky twists and tangled turns, brings each of the unlikely duos together until they discover their unique happily-ever-afters.

The littlest member of the package deal steals the show in this charming romance about finding out that three is not always a crowd—and that our hearts can always make room for one more person to love. Seriously, I loved Spring and eventually Hudson. (He's really a softie. You just don't know it at first.) I loved their slow-growing romance. But, little Emma really wrapped herself around my little finger. Don't get me wrong, this is totally a romance novel--but the scenes with the sweet little daughter will warm your heart. An excellent addition to the Ruled Out Romances series.

Game Changer (Ruled Out Romances Book 1) by [Stastny, Charissa]

Meridee Mansford wants nothing to do with the popular crowd. She’s comfortable being invisible. But that doesn’t stop her from dreaming about the hunky football player who visits the campus ice cream shop where she works. Still, she’s smart enough to know he’d never notice a girl like her, and she’d never want him even if he did. Too much unwelcome attention. 

Parker Harrington basks in the glory that’s been his since the game-changing passes he caught pre-season that pushed his team into the national spotlight. Sticky Fingers is his media moniker now, and the cheerleaders who used to ignore him when he sat the bench have become his most devoted fans. But when he accidentally crashes into a quiet coed in the student union building, it throws off his offensive game.

As fate, ice cream, and orange chicken throw the opposites together, will Parker continue keeping company with women he knows are only using him for his fame, or will he change up the game and risk his heart on a genuine girl who despises the attention he craves?



Opposites attract when the overlooked sweet girl lands herself the popular football star in this quasi Cinderella story. It’s the perfect read to keep you up way past your bedtime—and leave a smile on your face when your head finally hits the pillow.

Parker Harrington quite literally runs into Meridee Mansford, creating quite the aftermath. He can’t forget his run-in with the unassuming beauty—even though his life trajectory is already headed straight toward perfection with a promising sports career and the attention of the girl he has always desired. So, why can’t he shake his wandering thoughts? Why is he drawn to a princess when he has the queen? The answer challenges Parker as he discovers that skin deep magnificence can never compare with the true beauty that lies deep within a soul. Game Changer will entertain the reader with witty dialogue and a fast paced plot. But the reader will also walk away knowing that true love wins every time. This is a well-written, feel-good book that will stick with you for days on end. Sit back, relax, and enjoy the journey!
