Evander Lennox doesn't do anything he doesn't want to do. At least, that is, until he's sent to prison. The four years he's incarcerated, he's had no choice but to do the things he's asked to do, when he's asked to do them. And now, if he doesn't, it will mean a one-way ticket straight back to hell. Once he's free, it takes him twenty-four hours to get his old job back, his dog at home where he belongs, and an understanding that people aren't as forgiving as he once thought them to be. He's just about given up hope of ever integrating back into society when a woman slams into his heart, literally and figuratively. *** Kennedy Swallow just wants to belong somewhere. When she was younger, her parents divorced, and chose to separate her from her twin. Fast forward fifteen years, and she's finally getting to meet the family she's always wanted to be a part of. To make that happen, she uproots her life and moves to the tiny town of Hostel, Texas-giving her almost everything she's ever wanted. Just when she thinks she's making progress in winning her family over, she finds out that her twin is ill, and the only reason her family tolerates her is due to the convenience of having a free caretaker whenever they might be in need of one. After a few eye-opening experiences, she quickly realizes that she's being used. Vowing to herself that she'll make the best of the situation, she begins to steel her heart. What she doesn't prepare for is a man named Evander who sees that barrier as a challenge. *** It takes Evander all of ten seconds while watching the woman on the floor, bleeding from her jaw, to realize that maybe life isn't as bad as it could be. This woman with her thrill for life, a crazy obsession with chickens, and a desire to be wanted, changes everything he thinks he knows. But it doesn't take long for him to realize that just by being around her, the people of the town have judged her guilty by association. Her business suffers, and soon after, she realizes what it will mean to have him by her side-the loss of everything she's worked so hard for. Kennedy knows that Evander is worth it. Evander, however, decides that he's not letting another person get hurt because he was stupid enough to care.

Get out! He yelled those words at the love of his life twelve years ago, and to this day, Reed Hail regrets them. He's always been the type of person to speak before he thinks, and apologies have never come easy. It's been over a decade since she was his, and he stubbornly thinks that he can keep on living without her. He couldn't be more wrong. The last thing he needs is her vagina anywhere near his exam table. But nobody ever asks him what he wants. Maybe he should've gone into the auto-recovery business after all. I hate you. Krisney Shaw would take those words back in a heartbeat if she could. In fact, she would take back everything. Never meeting him would be the perfect place to start. The memory of Reed Hail haunts her-morning, noon, and night. Then, to add insult to injury, she has to see him being happy while she's breaking a little more inside every single day. Reed Hail is her worst nightmare because she's constantly reminded of exactly what she's missing-the other half of her soul. Just when she thinks things can't get worse, she's sees his sexy, bearded face over the top of her paper gown, and she's lost all over again. Don't ever let me go. Both Reed and Krisney are determined to avoid each other. They do a great job of it, too...not. One ill-timed gynecological exam changes everything. One single second in time shows Reed what he's missing-literally and figuratively-and suddenly he's back at square one. The only problem with being back at square one? He won't be able to leave her a second time. Especially since the first time around he didn't have a child with her to consider.
An Open Letter to the Women Who Will Run the World

Publisher: Grand Central Publishing
Category: Biography & Autobiography
Redefine the expectations for women in leadership roles with this #1 New York Times bestselling volume of inspiring advice by the former communications director for Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton. Framed as an empowering letter from former Hillary Clinton Communications Director Jennifer Palmieri to the first woman president, and by extension, to all women working to succeed in any field, Dear Madam President is filled with forward-thinking, practical advice for all women who are determined to seize control of their lives-from boardroom to living room. As a country, we haven't wrapped our heads around what it should look like for a woman to be in the job of President. Our only models are men. While wildly disappointed by the outcome of the 2016 election, Palmieri argues that our feelings-confusion, love, hate, acceptance-can now open the country up to reimagining women in leadership roles. And that is what Palmieri takes on in this book-redefining expectations for women looking to lead and creating a blueprint for women candidates and leaders to follow. Dear Madam President will turn the results of the 2016 election into something incredibly empowering for graduates, future female leaders, and independent thinkers everywhere.

Nobody would know by looking at him that he used to play professional football. Not with the Bear Bottom MC cut covering his back, and definitely not with his friendly smile completely obliterated. No longer is there charm in each smooth word that comes out of his mouth. What’s left is an angry, bitter, scared man that’s terrified one day he’s going to wake up and his entire world is going to be gone. Nobody knows what drove him to leave the game he loved—nobody but her. She’s the one person that has helped him make it through the dark days and even darker nights.

Until one day he has to choose—the love of his life, or the life he brought into this world. Two impossible situations. One decision that would change him forever.

In the era of Donald J. Trump, 45th president of the United States, a modern-day civil war rages. Led by elitists from Hollywood to New York, the Establishment has launched an unprecedented onslaught of hate and hypocrisy—single-minded of purpose: to destroy President Trump’s efforts to make America great again. We see it every day! From riots and faux outrage, to attacks on conservative voices, to condescending Hollywood awards show speeches, to sports broadcasts pushing Establishment propaganda, to college campuses—where free speech is violently shut down by anti-freedom activists, professors indoctrinate instead of educate, and safe spaces coddle the entitled—to the peddling of “fake news.” With searing wit, The Case Against the Establishment reveals the hypocrisy of the Establishment and how it has infiltrated every facet of life—pop culture, schools, the news media, social media, even public bathrooms—as it seeks to mold America into a bastion of socialism, annihilate the Trump agenda, and crush everything that makes America great.
