Deal Takers: A Friends To Lovers Romance (Dealing With Love Book 2)

by Laura Lee

MY DICK CAN BE A REAL BASTARD SOMETIMES. 

When he takes charge, I’ve been known to do a lot of stupid shit, despite the fact that I have a genius IQ. Case in point: How I met the woman of my dreams. 

Now, I’m going to let you in on a little secret: I don’t regret that moment of idiocy one bit. It may have been one of the most embarrassing moments of my life, but you know what they say about first impressions, right? Well, I can guarantee that I made quite the impression that evening. (Don’t worry; I’ll tell you all the gory details later.) 

Most days, she acts like she hates meâ??probably because I behave like an assâ?? but we both know the truth: Rainey O’Neil wants me just as much as I want herâ??she just doesn’t want to admit it. 

Good thing I’ve never been one to back down from a challenge.

*Deal Takers is the second installment in the Dealing with Love world but can be read as a standalone.



A Book That Ends With Me

by H. C. Turk

The world is coming to an end. Predictions are sent to every nation in e-mail messages. But this time, instead of fraud or some misinterpretation of ancient history, the events are coming true.

*Revised December 2017*

Stan Powers, an average guy in Florida, finds himself living events predicted in the messages, from a picnic on a planetoid to a baseball game played by Greek gods, and finally to Darkday, where demons go door to door and steal the souls of people whose lives are epic failures. These alternative realities are taking over Stan’s life, and soon will take over the world. Verification is provided by scientists who learn that after each prediction is lived out by Stan and his friends, gravitational time stops in the Solar System. Cults of Earth Enders form across the world, their members willing to kill anyone to save the planet. Stan, who is soon in their sights, must learn if he is just a pawn, a player, or the predictor himself.

Told in an amiable style, this cross-genre novel seamlessly combines urban fantasy, magic realism, and SF. Often humorous, always intelligent, and completely compelling, A Book That Ends With Me is an alternative to common entertainment.



Soaked

by Courtney Elliott

I met him in the middle of a thunderstorm on my thirteenth birthday. Over the years, the rain would continue to be a part of our story. Sometimes, I would run for cover, and others, I would stand with my arms open wide as I got completely soaked.

Lennon Cooper and Weston Blake met when they were only kids. She was the new girl in town, and he was her best friend’s older brother. They aren’t supposed to have feelings for each other, but eventually, neither can deny what’s happening between them. They begin as a secret, but evolve into something so much more. They can’t be together, but they refuse to stay away. It’s only a matter of time before the storm washes over them both.

This is a complete standalone novel without a cliffhanger.
There is some sexual content that is not recommended for younger readers.
There is also cheating, and some choice language, but it is necessary to the story.



The Langdon Codex

by R. P. Poe

Two friends, one white, the other black, discover a solid silver lock box hidden in an antique desk and, on impulse, decide to steal it. Inside is a sheaf of papers bound with twine. Assuming the papers to be nothing more than a worthless diary, they toss them aside but soon discover their mistake. The manuscript is in fact a previously unknown novel by a famous American author. When the box is stolen, the men set out to find it and redeem themselves, encountering prejudice and bigotry along the way that parallels the novel’s story and leads them to a shocking truth about their own shared past.

O Cortiço (Prazer de Ler) (Portuguese Edition)

by Aluísio Azevedo

A série Prazer de Ler apresenta em seu novo volume a principal referência da estética realista-naturalista na literatura brasileira, a obra-prima de Aluísio Azevedo, O Cortiço. Ambição e exploração se misturam nessa envolvente e sombria história de uma habitação coletiva da capital do Segundo império. De um lado, a burguesia gananciosa e interesseira, disposta a tudo para enriquecer e subir na vida. De outro, personagens estereotipados, cheios de vícios e patologias, comparados a animais e movidos pelo instinto e pela fome. Todas as existências entrelaçadas e cruzadas em torno do cortiço de São Romão. Pela espetacular representação da vida cotidiana da cidade do Rio de Janeiro, esboçada com um colorido e com uma objetividade quase fotográficos, esta obra continua como um dos mais poderosos retratos da realidade brasileira. Um clássico da literatura nacional que, passado mais de um século de sua publicação, ainda tem o poder de emocionar e inquietar.
