Book Excerpt :

He's addicted to booze. She's addicted to sex...staying sober is only half the battle. No. More. Sex. Those are the three words Lily Calloway fears the most. But Loren Hale is determined to be with Lily without enabling her dangerous compulsions. With their new living situation—sleeping in the same bed, for real, together—Lily has new battles. Like not jumping Lo’s bones every night. Not being consumed by sex and his body. Loren plans to stay sober, to right all of his wrongs. So when someone threatens to expose Lily’s secret to her family and the public, he promises that he’ll do anything to protect her. But with old enemies surfacing, Lo has more at stake than his sobriety. They will torment Lily until Lo breaks. And his worst fear isn’t relapsing. He hears the end. He sees it. The one thing that could change everything. Just three words. No. More. Us.

Book Short Summary:

​Don’t date your bodyguard. ​It was the one rule he had to break. Maximoff Hale is a force of nature. A ship unwilling to be steered. Headstrong, resilient, and wholly responsible — the twenty-two-year-old alpha billionaire can handle his unconventional life. By noon, lunch can turn into a mob of screaming fans. By two, his face is all over the internet. Born into one of the most famous families in the country, his celebrity status began at birth. He is certified American royalty. When he’s assigned a new 24/7 bodyguard, he comes face-to-face with the worst case scenario: being attached to the tattooed, MMA-trained, Yale graduate who’s known for “going rogue” in the security team — and who fills 1/3 of Maximoff's sexual fantasies. Twenty-seven-year-old Farrow Keene has one job: protect Maximoff Hale. Flirting, dating, and hot sex falls far, far out of the boundary of his bodyguard duties and into “termination” territory. But when feelings surface, protecting the sexy-as-sin, stubborn celebrity becomes increasingly complicated. ​ Together, boundaries blur, and being exposed could mean catastrophic consequences for both.

Book Short Summary:

A former firearms executive pulls back the curtain on America's multibillion-dollar gun industry, exposing how it fostered extremism and racism, radicalizing the nation and bringing cultural division to a boiling point. As an avid hunter, outdoorsman, and conservationist–all things that the firearms industry was built on–Ryan Busse chased a childhood dream and built a successful career selling millions of firearms for one of America’s most popular gun companies. But blinded by the promise of massive profits, the gun industry abandoned its self-imposed decency in favor of hardline conservatism and McCarthyesque internal policing, sowing irreparable division in our politics and society. That drove Busse to do something few other gun executives have done: he's ending his 30-year career in the industry to show us how and why we got here. Gunfight is an insider’s call-out of a wild, secretive, and critically important industry. It shows us how America's gun industry shifted from prioritizing safety and ethics to one that is addicted to fear, conspiracy, intolerance, and secrecy. It recounts Busse's personal transformation and shows how authoritarianism spreads in the guise of freedom, how voicing one's conscience becomes an act of treason in a culture that demands sameness and loyalty. Gunfight offers a valuable perspective as the nation struggles to choose between armed violence or healing.

Book Short Summary:

Tommy Watson grew up in the Five Points area of Denver, Colorado, a crime-ridden neighborhood with gang violence, drugs, and poverty. Living in this type of neighborhood creates numerous obstacles and challenges for young African-Americans; however, Tommy’s biggest challenges were confronted behind closed doors. Many negative influences insidiously crept into his home. Throughout his childhood, both of his parents were addicted to heroin, shoplifted, and neither had a legal means of employment. As a result, family life for Tommy and his siblings was quite chaotic, and the children often found themselves unsupervised and uncared for. They often lived in foster homes, shelters, motel rooms, and with family and friends. In part due to the help of others and in part through his own personal drive, Tommy was able to avoid the traps of drug addiction and gang affiliation that eventually consumed the lives of some of his siblings. In spite of some negative classroom experiences, he persevered, graduated from high school, and earned an athletic scholarship to play Big Ten football for the University of Minnesota. Watson is now a principal in the Minnesota school system, a motivational/keynote speaker and a consultant. “Tommy Watson is a guy who lifts your spirit...” Jim Zorn- Head Coach of Washington Redskins Football Team & Former Seattle Seahawk Great “Tommy Watson’s story is both gutsy and inspiring.” KARE 11 -News (MN) “Watson is proof that no matter how much emotional sludge and misery life hurls at you, you can dust yourself off and keep on going. You can persevere.” Bob Sansevere- St. Paul Pioneer Press (MN) “It’s like a television story. Tommy has come from below nothing.” Pete Levine- Watson’s former High School Coach “...he’ll [Watson] be one of the all-time success stories in the history of Minnesota, given his background and all of his hardships.” Bob DeBesse- Watson’s former Collegiate Coach “When Tommy Watson was sharing his story I felt like crying tears of joy.” Parent “Mr. Watson’s message penetrates to the core of people’s soul.” Teacher Tommy Watson has a bachelor of science, a master of educational administration, and an advanced graduate degree in K–12 administration. He is working on his Doctor of Education and works as a school principal in Minnesota. He is married (Akesha) and has four children (Martice, Darien, Torri, and Avery).

Book Short Summary:

In this revelatory and original book, award-winning author of the acclaimed surf memoir On a Wave illuminates the connection between waves, addiction, and recovery, exploring what surfing can teach us about the powerful undertow of addictive behaviors and the ways to swim free of them. Addiction is arguably the dominant feature of contemporary life: sex, gambling, exercise, eating, shopping, Internet use—there's virtually no pleasurable activity that can't morph into a destructive obsession. For Americans under the age of fifty-five, the leading cause of death is drug overdose. But there is another side of addiction. In some instances, the very activities that can lead to addiction can also lead out of it. As neurologists have recently discovered, surfing is a kind of study in the mechanism of addiction, delivering dopamine to the "pleasure" center of the brain and reshaping priorities and desire in a feedback loop of narrowing focus. Thad Ziolkowski knows this dynamic intimately. A lifelong surfer, he has been surrounded by addiction since his boyhood. In this unique, groundbreaking book, part addiction memoir, part sociological study, part spiritual odyssey, Ziolkowski dismantles the myth of surfing as a radiantly wholesome lifestyle immune to the darker temptations of the culture and discovers among the rubble a new way to understand and ultimately overcome addiction. Combining his own story with insights from scientists, progressive thinkers and the experiences of top surfers and addicts from around the world, Ziolkowski shows how getting on a board and catching a wave is a unique and deeply instructive means of riding out of the darkness and back into the light. Yet while surfing is his salvation, its lessons can applied to other activities that can pull us free from the lethal undertow of addiction and save lives.

Book Short Summary:

In Honey's debut novel, a man must learn how to cope with his wife's heroine addiction while raising two daughters and being the mayor of Atlanta. Atlanta's mayor, The Honorable Josiah J. Bishop, has an addiction to his wife, Mink, that is just as powerful as her toxic love affair with heroin. As her life spirals out of control due to her obsession with the needle, his love and devotion to her is slowly shredding his soul into tiny pieces. But he just can't let her go. The brotha's loyalty to the love of his life and the mother of his two young, adorable daughters is deeper than any ocean. No matter how far Mink drags Josiah down into the murkiness of drugs, booze, and danger on the streets of the ATL, he's determined to love, cherish, and honor her until death. He's hooked on her. It's just that simple. The only thing Mink is faithful to is her next fix. She'll cop it wherever she can and by any means, trying desperately to escape from the secret demons of her past that haunt her daily. Mink's troubled soul remains a prisoner of addiction, twirling violently like a tornado and destroying everything in its path. Not even the love of a good man can set her free from emotional bondage. As Election Day approaches, Josiah's bid to serve a second term in City Hall is jeopardized when Mink commits her most heinous act. The media is going wild to cover the tragic murder and robbery of one of Mink's fellow addicts, a wealthy and prominent Hollywood filmmaker who was more than generous to her after she left yet another treatment facility. She's on the run from justice, ignoring Josiah's pleas to turn herself in. Mink realizes that she's at the end of her rope, but Josiah isn't sure if he has any more forgiveness in his heart for his wife. He will always love her, but finally, he desires love in return. His addiction to Mink has blinded him of that one basic need all this time. Now Josiah has a decision to make. Will he stay in the clutches of addiction to the drug called Mink? Or will he kick the habit once and for all and free himself forever?
