Horse's Bride Book Review:

HorseYears ago I lost the one woman who's ever been able to rock my world. When she disappeared into thin air I stopped caring, fucking whoever, whenever. The one thing I didn't plan for was seeing her face in all of these women.No one could ever compare to her and here she is, her ghost haunting me every day. I thought that relocating with the club to start our new charter would be the change I needed to move on, but what happens when I see her again. Only this time, she isn't a ghost.She's real.

Dex's Devotion Book Review:

I have the opportunity of a lifetime, but I never thought trouble would be here too. Dex Going to college was something I always dreamed of, but I never thought I'd be able to afford it. So, when I got a full ride to Stonewall University, I reluctantly took the offer. Why? Because my uncle is the Dean of the college. It's like I knew something was shady, but I still wanted to take this opportunity. I thought shit would hit the fan first thing, but instead I had my eyes on a gorgeous blonde. She wore leather and had a good bit of sass, and the way she filled out jeans had me getting a good look at her every time I could. Slowly but surely, my story with Ember started, but it was far from over.

VenomVenom runs through my veins the same way ice freezes to the midst of winter. I'm not a man to be crossed, nor one to be played with.Danger comes swirling around the club and I do what it takes to keep the targets off my brother's backs. I've killed in war and I have no problem doing it again, whenever the day might come. When a blast from the past lands on my doorstep, I'm not sure what to say, or what to do. I have two options right now-- bring her in, or show her the door. That is, until she steps aside to show me my prize. Either way, the prize will always be mine.

RyderI live for the adrenaline rush. Never once have I not. All my life, it's been one adventure after another. Now I find myself on the most dangerous one yet.Finding her the way I did; I knew without a doubt I'd claim her as mine. Didn't matter if she agreed or not. She'd come to my way of thinking sooner or later.Only when the worse kind of rush rears its head, do I find myself conflicted of whether or not to keep my beauty. She is nothing like she seems and I'm not sure she can handle the life I lead. It's only a matter of time before the fires catch us in their grasps.Will she cave to my demands or will I let her go?The rush of a lifetime is ahead of the both of us.

Where the Heart Beats Book Review:

A “heroic” and “fascinating” biography of John Cage showing how his work, and that of countless American artists, was transformed by Zen Buddhism (The New York Times) Where the Heart Beats is the story of the tremendous changes sweeping through American culture following the Second World War, a time when the arts in America broke away from centuries of tradition and reinvented themselves. Painters converted their canvases into arenas for action and gesture, dancers embraced pure movement over narrative, performance artists staged “happenings” in which anything could happen, poets wrote words determined by chance. In this tumultuous period, a composer of experimental music began a spiritual quest to know himself better. His earnest inquiry touched thousands of lives and created controversies that are ongoing. He devised unique concerts—consisting of notes chosen by chance, randomly tuned radios, and silence—in the service of his absolute conviction that art and life are one inseparable truth, a seamless web of creation divided only by illusory thoughts. What empowered John Cage to compose his incredible music—and what allowed him to inspire tremendous transformations in the lives of his fellow artists—was Cage’s improbable conversion to Zen Buddhism. This is the story of how Zen saved Cage from himself. Where the Heart Beats is the first book to address the phenomenal importance of Zen Buddhism to John Cage’s life and to the artistic avant-garde of the 1950s and 1960s. Zen’s power to transform Cage’s troubled mind—by showing him his own enlightened nature—liberated Cage from an acute personal crisis that threatened everything he most deeply cared abouthis life, his music, and his relationship with his life partner, Merce Cunningham. Caught in a society that rejected his art, his politics, and his sexual orientation, Cage was transformed by Zen from an overlooked and marginal musician into the absolute epicenter of the avant-garde. Using Cage’s life as a starting point, Where the Heart Beats looks beyond to the individuals Cage influenced and the art he inspired. His creative genius touched Robert Rauschenberg, Jasper Johns, Andy Warhol, Yoko Ono, Alan Kaprow, Morton Feldman, and Leo Castelli, who all went on to revolutionize their respective disciplines. As Cage’s story progresses, as his collaborators’ trajectories unfurl, Where the Heart Beats shows the blossoming of Zen in the very heart of American culture.

Kinetic Book Review:

I can't run from my past, no matter how hard I try. Charlee I knew the second I'd arrived back in Portland he'd know I was here within days, so it wasn't a shock to me that he came knocking on my door, literally. Kaden was my first love, but he isn't the same man anymore. These days he goes by another name, Kinetic, one he was given when he went overseas. Now he's in a biker club and living a totally different life. Hell, I roll my eyes thinking about it. I came back here to take care of my elderly mother because she just had a full hip replacement, but I didn't come alone. So much has changed over the last decade and as soon as I saw him, everything came rushing back. Will I be able to get out of Portland unscathed, or is Kinetic going to weasel his way into my heart like Kaden did? Kinetic Years ago, I enlisted in the Marines and thought my life was going just the way I planned. Had the girl and the career I always wanted. We were kids, just starting our lives and had so much to look forward to. I had it all figured out, but the kicker is it never happened. I've lived the last twelve years mainly overseas working alongside my brothers. Men who I'd laid down my life for. Coming home we started the Deathstalkers MC and I never looked back. Now I'm standing on the front porch of Charlee's mom's house, glaring down at her as she holds onto the one thing she knew I always wanted. My kid. Decisions have to be made and something's going to give. Either way she'll be mine again.

Racial Folly Book Review:

Briscoe's grandmother remembered stories about the first white men coming to the Northern Territory. This extraordinary memoir shows us the history of an Aboriginal family who lived under the race laws, practices and policies of Australia in the twentieth century. It tells the story of a people trapped in ideological folly spawned to solve 'the half-caste problem'. It gives life to those generations of Aboriginal people assumed to have no history and whose past labels them only as shadowy figures. Briscoe's enthralling narrative combines his, and his contemporaries, institutional and family life with a high-level career at the heart of the Aboriginal political movement at its most dynamic time. It also documents the road he travelled as a seventeen year old fireman on the South Australia Railways to becoming the first Aboriginal person to achieve a PhD in history.

The Boat of a Million Years Book Review:

A New York Times Notable Book and Hugo and Nebula Award Finalist: This epic chronicle of ten immortals over the course of history “succeeds admirably” (The New York Times). The immortals are ten individuals born in antiquity from various cultures. Immune to disease, able to heal themselves from injuries, they will never die of old age—although they can fall victim to catastrophic wounds. They have walked among mortals for millennia, traveling across the world, trying to understand their special gifts while searching for one another in the hope of finding some meaning in a life that may go on forever. Following their individual stories over the course of human history and beyond into a richly imagined future, “one of science fiction’s most revered writers” (USA Today) weaves a broad tapestry that is “ambitious in scope, meticulous in detail, polished in style” (Library Journal).
