Virtually Screwed Book Review:

Blake At 43 I'm supposed to have everything figured out, and if you'd asked me six months ago I'd have said I did: head of my own tech company, beautiful fiancée, amazing future all planned out...life was perfect. Or, at least, I thought it was... So now I'm in New York after selling my company and fleeing San Jose, and for the first time in as long as I can remember I have nothing to fill my day--no meetings, no reports, no tests, no launch parties--and that's how I manage to get hooked on Warpath 4 and somehow find myself sexting with a guy almost twenty years younger than me. Say what? Okay, here's the thing: it didn't start out dirty. It was all completely tame. Mild. Conversational. But then conversation turned to flirting, and flirting turned to dirty talk. And, well...let's just say things escalated from there... But it's just a bit of fun. Right? It's not like anything would ever work in real life. I'm too old, he's still closeted. And let's not get started on how I'm supposedly straight. It's just way too messy. Definitely best if we never actually meet each other... But what if we already have? Turns out my virtual f*ck buddy is actually Owen Kelly, my best friend's kid brother. Which leaves me pretty much screwed... Warning: This book is not appropriate for anyone who doesn't like laughing, anyone who doesn't like the word 'daddy', or anyone who doesn't like when hot older guys and gorgeous younger guys have a hella lot of super-steamy sex. *Happily Ever After included

Unconventional Warfare (Special Forces, Book 1) Book Review:

Discover the secret missions behind America's greatest conflicts. Danny Manion has been fighting his entire life. Sometimes with his fists. Sometimes with his words. But when his actions finally land him in real trouble, he can't fight the judge who offers him a choice: jail... or the army. Turns out there's a perfect place for him in the US military: the Studies and Observation Group (SOG), an elite volunteer-only task force comprised of US Air Force Commandos, Army Green Berets, Navy SEALS, and even a CIA agent or two. With the SOG's focus on covert action and psychological warfare, Danny is guaranteed an unusual tour of duty, and a hugely dangerous one. Fortunately, the very same qualities that got him in trouble at home make him a natural-born commando in a secret war. Even if almost nobody knows he's there. National Book Award finalist Chris Lynch begins a new, explosive fiction series based on the real-life, top-secret history of US black ops.

Strengthening Forensic Science in the United States Book Review:

Scores of talented and dedicated people serve the forensic science community, performing vitally important work. However, they are often constrained by lack of adequate resources, sound policies, and national support. It is clear that change and advancements, both systematic and scientific, are needed in a number of forensic science disciplines to ensure the reliability of work, establish enforceable standards, and promote best practices with consistent application. Strengthening Forensic Science in the United States: A Path Forward provides a detailed plan for addressing these needs and suggests the creation of a new government entity, the National Institute of Forensic Science, to establish and enforce standards within the forensic science community. The benefits of improving and regulating the forensic science disciplines are clear: assisting law enforcement officials, enhancing homeland security, and reducing the risk of wrongful conviction and exoneration. Strengthening Forensic Science in the United States gives a full account of what is needed to advance the forensic science disciplines, including upgrading of systems and organizational structures, better training, widespread adoption of uniform and enforceable best practices, and mandatory certification and accreditation programs. While this book provides an essential call-to-action for congress and policy makers, it also serves as a vital tool for law enforcement agencies, criminal prosecutors and attorneys, and forensic science educators.

Princely Submission Book Review:

Who says love has to be gentle? A spoiled prince on his first overseas tour is torn between resenting his hot bodyguard-and yearning for him. Prince Jordan is twenty years old, rich, and finally seeing the world. The last thing he needs is a babysitter. Especially one as rigid as Stuart Whitmore, an older, muscular man who makes it clear from their first meeting that there will be consequences if Jordan misbehaves. No one has ever laid a hand on Jordan his whole life, but for the first time he's contemplating the possibility-and trying to figure out which buttons to push to achieve his goal. Because there's something behind Stuart's eyes that tells him he feels the same magnetic pull that Jordan does. Stuart doesn't give a damn that Jordan is a prince-he's still the most entitled brat he's ever laid eyes on. He's also a temptation, igniting desires Stuart had thought long since extinguished. The prince needs a firm hand and Stuart is just the man to provide it, but there's a vulnerability to Jordan that calls to him. A call that proves too difficult to ignore. What happens when discipline crosses the line into intense heat? And what are the ramifications when the connection becomes so much more than just physical... For both of them?

Fake it 'til You Make Out Book Review:

Heath It's a classic story: Boy meets girl, girl breaks boy's heart, boy pretends to be gay to get back at girl, girl outs boy to everyone on Facebook... Okay, maybe it's not that classic. But it's what happened to me. When I bump into my cheating ex and catch sight of the moon-sized rock on her finger, there's only one option to save face: pretend to be dating my gay best friend, Declan. And when she outs me on Facebook and everyone I know sees it, there's still only one option: keep pretending to be dating Declan. And when Declan and I have to kiss to keep up the ruse and it turns out there's actually a spark between us (more like a blazing inferno, if truth be told) there's once again only one option... Warning: this book is not appropriate for anyone who doesn't like laughing, anyone who doesn't like dogs, or anyone who doesn't like hot men having a lot of sex...with each other. *Happily Ever After included

Reckless OGN Book Review:

Sex, drugs, and murder in 1980s Los Angeles, and the best new twist on paperback pulp heroes since The Punisher or Jack Reacher. ED BRUBAKER and SEAN PHILLIPS, the modern masters of crime noir, bring us the last thing anyone expected from them—a good guy. A bold new series of original graphic novels, with three books releasing over the next year, each a full-length story that stands on its own. Meet Ethan Reckless: Your trouble is his business, for the right price. But when a fugitive from his radical student days reaches out for help, Ethan must face the only thing he fears…his own past. “Oh man this book pushed EVERY crime fiction button for me. Working class setting covering up for a deeper societal rot, a battered, damaged (literally) protagonist against the beast, and all of it squirming and lunging through an over-lit early 80s L.A. Noir bleached to bleakness. Bliss." —Patton Oswalt “Imagine Redford at his peak, ambling through sun-drenched, eighties L.A. in a serpentine plot that is equal parts Long Goodbye and Point Break. No one does crime fic like BRUBAKER and PHILLIPS and their collaboration has never felt more new. Explosive. Vital. And yes...reckless. I love this book.” —Damon Lindelof (Lost, HBO’s Watchmen) "RECKLESS is an absolute rush: on the same level as golden age Travis McGee novels and the hardest-hitting Richard Stark stories. This one comes at you as fast as Steve McQueen in a souped-up Mustang and as hard as Charles Bronson with a baseball bat. You gotta have it." —Joe Hill (Locke and Key, N0S4A2) Look for Book Two in the RECKLESS series in April 2021!

The Wild Rose Book Review:

The third book in the sweeping, multi-generational saga that began with The Tea Rose, The Wild Rose is a "lush story of epic proportions" (Romantic Times Book Review). The Wild Rose is a part of the sweeping, multi-generational saga that began with The Tea Rose and continued with The Winter Rose. It is London, 1914. World War I looms on the horizon, women are fighting for the right to vote, and explorers are pushing the limits ofendurance in the most forbidding corners of the earth. Into this volatile time, Jennifer Donnelly places her vivid and memorable characters: Willa Alden, a passionate mountain climber who lost her leg while summiting Kilimanjaro with Seamus Finnegan, and who will never forgive him for saving her life; Seamus Finnegan, a polar explorer who tries to forget Willa as he marries a beautiful young schoolteacher back home in England; Max von Brandt, a handsome German sophisticate who courts high society women, but has a secret agenda in wartime London. Many other beloved characters from The Winter Rose continue their adventures in The Wild Rose as well. With myriad twists and turns, thrilling cliffhangers, and fabulous period detail and atmosphere, The Wild Rose provides a highly satisfying conclusion to an unforgettable trilogy.

Crazy Little Fling Book Review:

Jamie It's not exactly what I'd call the ideal situation--being introduced to your bio-dad's best mate only to realize he's the sexy older guy you hooked up with a couple of weeks ago--but it's also not the worst thing to ever happen in history. The way I see it, this is fate. The universe is throwing Shay Kelly in my path again because it knows how much I've been dying for another shag with him. I have four weeks before I need to go back to London, and I know exactly how I'd like to spend that time. And fortunately for me, Shay's just as keen for a repeat or ten as I am. All we need is a few ground rules to keep this little fling in check... Rule One: It's temporary Makes sense--neither of us do the long-term bit. And it's not like we can continue with this once I move back to London. Rule Two: No dates, just sex Easy peasy--sex is the best part of dating anyway. Rule Three: We keep it between us Perfect--sneaking around and concocting elaborate lies is a right turn on. Rule Four: No falling in love Love? Me? In four weeks? There's a better chance of me inventing the solution to climate change. Warning: this book is not appropriate for anyone who doesn't like laughing, anyone who doesn't like British slang, and anyone who doesn't like smokin' hot older guys and sexy red-haired twinks having lots of sex and trying not to fall in love. *Happily Ever After included

The Prince of Wales meets his match in the first novel in an enchanting male/male romantic duology from the author of Asking for More and Begging for It... James, the handsome, cosmopolitan Prince of Wales, is used to being in the public eye. But he's keeping a king-sized secret...James, next in line for the throne, is gay. He’s been able to hide his sexual orientation with the help of his best friend and beard, Lady Cassandra. Sometimes he feels like a coward for not coming out, but he daren’t risk losing the crown. If he did, the succession would fall on his deeply troubled younger sister, Princess Amelia. To protect her, James is willing to live a lie. While on holiday, he meets Benjamin Dahan—a rugged international reporter with a globe-trotting, unattached life—who catches far more than James's eye. And when Ben is transferred to London, it seems fate may finally be smiling on James. But what began as a torrid fling grows into something far more intimate and powerful. Soon James will have to decide who he is, what he wants from life and love, and what he’s willing to sacrifice for the truth...

The Tea-Planter's Daughter Book Review:

Today is Julia Clockhouse's twenty-fifth birthday. Her long-suffering Hindu servants are frantically trying to organise a party for her, but it's hard to do so amid the havoc wreaked by her wild spirit. They think she is possessed. Daughters of colonial tea-planters shouldn't have souls that escape their bodies, move objects with their minds, hear tongueless yogis speak. Julia Clockhouse does. As the day passes and the chaos mounts in the kitchen, Julia listens desperately for the return of her husband. Ben may have married her on the orders of her domineering father, but he had come to love her; together they had found the happiness they missed in childhood. But by the time the party guests are tumbling in from the rising fury of the monsoon Ben has still not come. Sara Banerji narrates the events of an extraordinary birthday with deft humour and haunting eloquence, weaving into Julia's story a picture of an isolated tea-plantation and all those who live there. The Tea-Planter's Daughter is a captivating flight of the imagination firmly rooted in the reality of the South Indian hills.

Kingsblood Royal Book Review:

A neglected tour de force by the first American to win the Nobel Prize in literature, Kingsblood Royal is a stirring and wickedly funny portrait of a man who resigns from the white race. When Neil Kingsblood a typical middle-American banker with a comfortable life makes the shocking discovery that he has African-American blood, the odyssey that ensues creates an unforgettable portrayal of two Americas, one black, one white. As timely as when it was first published in 1947, one need only open today's newspaper to see the same issues passionately being discussed between blacks and whites that we find in Kingsblood Royal, says Charles Johnson. Perhaps only now can we fully appreciate Sinclair Lewis's astonishing achievement.
