Wildcard Book Review:

Not all girls need a hero. But do all heroes need a damsel? Evelyn "Smalls" Kincaid is the first of a brand new generation of fighters. Being the oldest in the family has never weighed on her in the past. In fact, blazing trails and trying new and daring things is what she lives for.For every wild adventure Evie goes on, for every broken rule and stretched law, her best friend, Benny "Sasquatch" Conner, studiously follows close behind, cleaning up the mess that would otherwise end with a rap sheet or loss of life. Ben would never allow such an end for the girl he's loved since the moment she flattened him in her family's gym. For a decade, the pair who are equally matched inside the octagon and out, have enjoyed a friendship of explosive highs, and icy lows...The operative word, and the biggest tragedy of them all, is 'FRIENDship'. That dreaded zone every man fears, and every woman loathes. Once children, then teens, now young adults on the cusp of new and exciting adventures, feelings change, hormones rage, and finally , Ben takes a freakin' hint and kisses Evie back. From enemies, to best friends, to lovers, "Wildcard" is a story of bravery, lost innocence, and the deepest kinds of love. It's a story of forgiveness, distance, desperation, and trust. From the author of the best selling Rollin On Series , comes this beautiful coming of age story that proves that if it's meant to be, it'll be. And if not... then maybe Evie's true love is waiting in a different gym, and his name might not be Ben Conner.

Fair Play Book Review:

A REESE'S BOOK CLUB PICK "A hands-on, real talk guide for navigating the hot-button issues that so many families struggle with."--Reese Witherspoon Tired, stressed, and in need of more help from your partner? Imagine running your household (and life!) in a new way... It started with the Sh*t I Do List. Tired of being the "shefault" parent responsible for all aspects of her busy household, Eve Rodsky counted up all the unpaid, invisible work she was doing for her family -- and then sent that list to her husband, asking for things to change. His response was... underwhelming. Rodsky realized that simply identifying the issue of unequal labor on the home front wasn't enough: She needed a solution to this universal problem. Her sanity, identity, career, and marriage depended on it. The result is Fair Play: a time- and anxiety-saving system that offers couples a completely new way to divvy up chores and responsibilities. Rodsky interviewed more than five hundred men and women from all walks of life to figure out what the invisible work in a family actually entails and how to get it all done efficiently. With four easy-to-follow rules, 100 household tasks, and a series of conversation starters for you and your partner, Fair Play helps you prioritize what's important to your family and who should take the lead on every chore from laundry to homework to dinner. "Winning" this game means rebalancing your home life, reigniting your relationship with your significant other, and reclaiming your Unicorn Space -- as in, the time to develop the skills and passions that keep you interested and interesting. Stop drowning in to-dos and lose some of that invisible workload that's pulling you down. Are you ready to try Fair Play? Let's deal you in.

Wild Card Book Review:

Kaci Dillon is a man-eater. She's grown up on the fringes of shifter society, hearing the whispers. One desperate act as a starving, terrified child has made her the first tabby in history with no romantic prospects. But whatever. Eighteen is too young to get married anyway. Still, when she stumbles upon an opportunity to get away for a few days, who could blame her for seizing it? Justus Alexander is screwed. Confined to the South-Central territory, awaiting trial for crimes he committed as a traumatized, newly infected stray, Justus has discovered that the tribunal already intends to vote for the death penalty. He has no choice but to run. Too young to touch the trust fund that could finance his escape, he's betting on a big win at the poker tables-until Kaci, his secret crush, catches him sneaking out and demands that he take her with him to Las Vegas... After a wild night she can't remember, Kaci wakes up with a ring on her finger, next to a young billionaire who can't access his fortune until he turns twenty-five-or ties the knot. If she can keep her hands off her hot, charismatic new groom, she can have their unconsummated marriage annulled. But can she really abandon Justus to his death sentence, just to undo her own mistake?

Beginning C++ Programming Book Review:

Modern C++ at your fingertips! About This Book This book gets you started with the exciting world of C++ programming It will enable you to write C++ code that uses the standard library, has a level of object orientation, and uses memory in a safe and effective way It forms the basis of programming and covers concepts such as data structures and the core programming language Who This Book Is For A computer, an internet connection, and the desire to learn how to code in C++ is all you need to get started with this book. What You Will Learn Get familiar with the structure of C++ projects Identify the main structures in the language: functions and classes Feel confident about being able to identify the execution flow through the code Be aware of the facilities of the standard library Gain insights into the basic concepts of object orientation Know how to debug your programs Get acquainted with the standard C++ library In Detail C++ has come a long way and is now adopted in several contexts. Its key strengths are its software infrastructure and resource-constrained applications, including desktop applications, servers, and performance-critical applications, not to forget its importance in game programming. Despite its strengths in these areas, beginners usually tend to shy away from learning the language because of its steep learning curve. The main mission of this book is to make you familiar and comfortable with C++. You will finish the book not only being able to write your own code, but more importantly, you will be able to read other projects. It is only by being able to read others' code that you will progress from a beginner to an advanced programmer. This book is the first step in that progression. The first task is to familiarize you with the structure of C++ projects so you will know how to start reading a project. Next, you will be able to identify the main structures in the language, functions, and classes, and feel confident being able to identify the execution flow through the code. You will then become aware of the facilities of the standard library and be able to determine whether you need to write a routine yourself, or use an existing routine in the standard library. Throughout the book, there is a big emphasis on memory and pointers. You will understand memory usage, allocation, and access, and be able to write code that does not leak memory. Finally, you will learn about C++ classes and get an introduction to object orientation and polymorphism. Style and approach This straightforward tutorial will help you build strong skills in C++ programming, be it for enterprise software or for low-latency applications such as games or embedded programming. Filled with examples, this book will take you gradually up the steep learning curve of C++.
