Do not crush on your dad’s sexy friend. Do not flirt with him every chance you get. And do not, under any circumstances, ask him to take your V-card while grinding on him in an office chair. Whoops. I’ve spent years wanting Drew Harrington, dreaming of every dirty thing I want him to do to me. He’s all hard ridges, sharp edges, and just being in a room with him leaves me aching to be owned by him. And I know he wants me too. I see him watching, his gaze dipping lower than it should, the heat in his eyes whenever he thinks no one’s looking. Only I’m looking, and I want him to do all the filthy things I know he’s thought about doing to me. There’s only one problem—one very big problem. He’s my dad’s best friend. Drew’s always been careful to never let his look linger too long, and he keeps his distance as much as he can. But this is the summer everything changes. This summer, I’m eighteen. This summer, he’s staying at my family’s resort. This summer...he’s making me his. He just doesn’t know it yet. Each book in the Haven Cove series is a complete standalone with no cliffhangers, no cheating, and a guaranteed HEA.

Integrity - Sean Feucht Preview:

What would radical integrity look like? We, as a generation, have lost our integrity. We struggle to be true to our countries, our families, our friends, and even ourselves. Many in the church have abandoned integrity and been swept downward into a spiral of hypocrisy and finger-pointing. How can we be full of the character of the kingdom? For the answer, internationally-known worship leaders Sean Feucht and Andy Byrd asked their “mothers and fathers in the faith” to explain what integrity really means. The result is a compilation full of insight and vulnerability on how to walk with integrity in communication, ministry, marriage, family relationships, leadership, personal finances, and times of trial..

Brazen - Leeana Tankersley Preview:

There are so many moments in life when we choose to silence our intuition, abandon our own voice, and play small because we wonder, deep down: "Do I know who I really am? Is who I really am enough?" It's courageous work to learn to live from our essential identity--loved, worthy, whole. But what if God is calling us to shamelessly recover the woman he created us to be? What if God is urging us to be--for the first time in our lives--brazen? The word brazen means without shame. Leeana Tankersley wants women to be just that--to unapologetically move from shame- and fear-based living toward lives that are based on love and belonging. With moving personal stories and spot-on observations of the longings we all experience--to know we are loved, to feel comfortable in our own skin, to be heard--Tankersley calls women to honor that voice deep down inside of them rather than bowing to outside influences that push them to become someone they're not. Gritty and overflowing with grace, Brazen will set women free to be truly themselves in a world bent on molding them in its image..

The Comedy and Legacy of Music-Hall Women 1880-1920 - Sam Beale Preview:

This book explores the comedy and legacy of women working as performers on the music-hall stage from 1880–1920, and examines the significance of their previously overlooked contributions to British comic traditions. Focusing on the under-researched female ‘serio-comic’, the study includes six micro-histories detailing the acts of Ada Lundberg, Bessie Bellwood, Maidie Scott, Vesta Victoria, Marie Lloyd and Nellie Wallace. Uniquely for women in the late-nineteenth and early-twentieth centuries, these pioneering performers had public voices. The extent to which their comedy challenged Victorian and Edwardian perceptions of women is revealed through explorations of how they connected with popular audiences while also avoiding censorship. Their use of techniques such as comic irony and stereotyping, self-deprecation, and comic innuendo are considered alongside the work of contemporary stand-up comedians and performance artists including Bridget Christie, Bryony Kimmings, Sara Pascoe, Shazia Mirza and Sarah Silverman..

Brazen: Big Banks, Swap Mania And The Fallout - A Rashad Abdel-khalik Preview:

For nearly two decades, countless non-profits in the U.S. were forced to pay big banks enormous sums of money to settle or terminate bilateral contracts known as Interest Rate Swaps (IRSs). Officials at non-profits had entered into these costly contracts unaware that each contract has only one winner, and that big banks did not intend to be the losers.The effects of such monetary transfers have been catastrophic. Money-strapped non-profits had to dismiss schoolteachers, shut off water supply to thousands of poor households, and downsize many other essential public services. Local and state governments, public school districts, universities, hospitals and transit authorities from New York to Los Angeles have been among the largest hit.This book presents selected cases and highlights the lack of evidence that decision makers at non-profits had fully understood the terms and complexities of IRSs. The evident unequal bargaining power thus gives rise to the high likelihood of unconscionable contracting. Additionally, for terminating these contracts, big banks collected huge sums of money for services that had not been, and will never be, rendered. Accordingly, questions arise as to whether these termination payments are tantamount to unjust enrichment.Related Link(s).
