Touch Me Not (Manwhore, #1) by Apryl Baker
A past tragedy has left Lily Holmes burdened with a devastating secret…
Since the death of her twin sister, Lily can’t bear to be touched. Not accidentally, not casually…and certainly not intimately. This makes it impossible for her to confess to her best friend Adam Roberts that she’s in love with him. She can’t give him the sort of relationship he needs, so she watches in silence while he plans his wedding with someone else.
Enter Nikoli Kinkaid, the campus manwhore…
Nikoli is a self-proclaimed connoisseur of women, and he wants to add Lily to his list of conquests, but she wants nothing to do with him—until he makes her an offer she can’t refuse. He’ll teach her to enjoy human contact again, giving her a chance to win over Adam, while Nikoli uses all his considerable charm to seduce her.
The Score (#3) by Elle Kennedy
The Mistake (#2) by Elle Kennedy
The Deal (#1) by Elle Kennedy
New Adult series set in the college hockey world. Each can be read as a standalone but together, they tell the stories of a group of friends. Listen to it on audiobook - it's narrated well.
Another series by a go-to author...

Never Tear Us Apart (Never Tear Us Apart, #1) by Monica Murphy
The darkly sexy contemporary series complete with an emotionally powerful tale of forbidden love.
A long time ago, when I was fifteen and a completely different person, I saved a girl’s life. I spent only a handful of hours with her, but somehow, we connected—and I’ve never been the same. No one understands what we went through. No one knows what it’s like to be us. We survived, yet I don’t feel like I’m really living—until now. Eight years later, I find her. I want to make her mine. I need to make her mine. But she’ll hate me forever when she finds out who I really am.
