If Itโ€™s Only Love, a sexy new standalone contemporary romance by New York Times bestselling author Lexi Ryan.

Meet single dad Easton Connor as he leaves the NFL and returns to Jackson Harbor to fight for another chance with the love of his life.


I donโ€™t regret much.

Not my decision to enter the NFL draft before finishing college.

Not fighting custody of my daughterโ€”even if, biologically speaking, it turns out sheโ€™s not mine.

And certainly not seducing my buddyโ€™s little sister ten years ago.

But when it comes to Shayleigh Jackson, my no-regrets attitude stops there. I screwed up royally where sheโ€™s concerned. Then I made another mistake when I let her shut me out of her life.

Now after more than a decade living in different time zones, Iโ€™m coming home to Jackson Harbor. My first priority is getting my daughter away from the media circus in LA, but the moment I see Shay, I know Iโ€™ll stop at nothing to win her back.

So what if she wonโ€™t speak to me? So what if sheโ€™s changed? So what if sheโ€™s fallen for some douchebag professor? Iโ€™ve never gotten over her and I know she feels the same about me. Iโ€™ve let her go twice. I wonโ€™t make that mistake again.

โ€œWe need to figure this out.โ€ She spins back to me, her eyes blazing. โ€œDo it yourself.โ€ I huff out a laugh and prowl toward her. โ€œWhat did you say?โ€ Those defiant eyes brim with tears and her bottom lip trembles. โ€œI said do it yourself. I have nothing to say, but youโ€™re the one so determined that we have this conversation.โ€ I come closer. She backs against the wall, and I keep coming until there are only inches between us. โ€œThatโ€™s real mature, Shay.โ€ I cup her jaw and stroke her bottom lip with my thumb as I study her face. โ€œThis is what you want?โ€ I dip my head and bring my mouth a breath from hers. โ€œYou want me to corner you and make you talk? Maybe I need to remind you how good we are together.โ€ I cock my head to the side, touching the bridge of my nose to hers. โ€œYou try to keep hating me, but you lose your grip on it when I get close, so I wonder what would happen if I got closer.โ€ Her breath is sweet against my lips, and she grabs my arms and curls her fingers into my biceps. โ€œIs that how it has to be, then? You want me to press you against this wall and kiss you until you canโ€™t remember your name and canโ€™t blame yourself for letting your guard down?โ€ Her pulse quickens beneath my fingers and her back bows as she arches into me. โ€œWe have nothing to talk about.โ€ โ€œBullshit. But maybe first you want me to track down that fucker youโ€™re sleeping withโ€”the one who youโ€™re fine to let โ€˜see other peopleโ€™? I could throw my weight around a little. Heโ€™d probably leave you alone just so he doesnโ€™t have to deal with me.โ€ I drag my nose along her cheek until my mouth is at her ear. โ€œThen you wouldnโ€™t have to tell him that you donโ€™t want him. You wouldnโ€™t ever have to admit that even after all these years, even after all the shit fate threw at us and all the mistakes I made, you still want me more than youโ€™ll ever want him.โ€ She swallows, and when she draws in a breath, I think sheโ€™s going to deny it. But she doesnโ€™t say a word. Her only response is sliding a hand up to cup the back of my neck. Fuck yes. โ€œIโ€™m not going to do that for you.โ€ It takes every drop of my will to force myself to step back. โ€œI want you to talk to me. I want you to scream at me for every shitty decision I ever made. Then I want you to kiss me and tell me I get another chance. I want you to break it off with that douchebag completely and be with me, but Iโ€™m not going to do it for you.โ€ I take another step toward the door. โ€œYouโ€™re going to have to make the choice yourself.โ€
