Kendra can't stand Wade. The feeling is mutual. Until someone changes the rules. This has been an epic trashy week. I’m studying to write the bar exam, and my best friend is getting married soon. As much as I hate it, my friends and I take her out for a bachelorette party. There’s a live band playing, and the lead singer just drips cocky attitude. The guy literally crashes into me in the bathroom hallway and he acts like it’s my fault. With his rudeness and course language, it takes everything in me not to clock him the way that my father taught me when I was a little girl. And then, when I don’t think that my week could get any worse, he shows up at the law firm the next day…and he’s my new client. *** What a horrible night. Normally, every chick in this place gives me bedroom eyes, but this one redhead, if looks could kill, I’d be dead. She’s like a disgruntled librarian with a bun in her hair so tight it’s like a facelift. We all but duke it out after she ploughs into me. Then this other chick shows up later, none-too-pleased, claiming that I fathered her unborn child! I should wear a sign that says, ‘Newsflash: I’m the only Ford kid that doesn’t have an inheritance, so back off!’. That should do it. But the message never gets across. I mean, what can you take away from a man to hurt him, when he already has nothing? Truth is, there’s plenty, especially after tonight… HEA (Happily Ever After) Hate to love romance Rock star romance Military romance Medium heat Course language Mild cliffhanger ending Second book in a complete 5 book standalone series "Music with fireworks! Voracious readers only helped me get to review this book. Now I couldn’t put this book down." - 5 Stars from Voracious Readers only reviewer "Wade & Kendra walk that fine line between love and hate.

A wholly original presentation of Jesus' good news message, logically laid out in everyday language, from the point of view of an engineer who is all too aware that in today's faith debates, opponents wield the stick of logic with devastating effectiveness. While showing evidence for clashes between popular biblical understanding and the biblical texts themselves, the author proposes that taking the texts at face value yields a coherent picture that should earn the intellectual assent (if not the belief) of the most hardened of skeptics.

Today there is a renewed interest in the Biblical book of Revelation-which naturally brings to mind the word "apocalypse." Because Revelation is best known for its wild symbolic imagery, some people will naturally assume this title to imply the same approach. This isn't the case; the word can also mean simply "prophetic," and that certainly describes the Bible. We are daily presented with the bad news of the world. In contrast, the Bible is the Good News-the rain that cleanses our soul, the amazing grace assuring us that God is still in control regardless of the situation. Through studying his Word we are programming our conscience for right or wrong in thought and action. That is the reason we need not only to read but to "study" the Bible daily. "The Good News of the Apocalypse" offers assistance with that study with a brief, comprehensible discussion of every book in the bible, arising from Sedinger's experience with a study group for teenagers. Everything in life is under God's control, and so Pastor Sedinger refers to life as God's Dance. The Good News is that Jesus came to teach us how to dance with God.

Nothing is "Beyond Belief" Imagination is the key to creating a new reality! Whatever you can imagine, you can implement. Whatever you believe to be actually creates the world you see. Life doesn't just happen to you. It "responds" to you and the thoughts that you are creating on a continuing basis. Although thoughts are not tangible, they are programmable and powerful. Thoughts can transform the abstract into the absolute. This book is about creative visualization or "wishcraft" which is a way of thinking that can change your life. The principles proposed in this book can propel you from poverty to prosperity and jumpstart your JOY as you learn how to transform your thoughts into reality. The process starts with a dream, a desire, or even just a wish. Wishes come in all sizes. One can wish small or one can wish "big or tall." One can even choose not to wish at all, but wishing is really the key to creating a new reality. Everything that you can conceive of already exists or you couldn't even conceive of it. Creative visualization simply makes the invisible visible! Your beliefs are the key to making the invisible materialize. Predicting the future actually becomes possible once you realize that you can create your own future by propelling your dreams into reality. The world can be yours to have and to hold once you take control of your own destiny. That doesn't mean that you can control the events that will happen in your life, but you can control how you envision those events. Those visualizations can either empower you to excel or cripple you in crisis. If you want your life to change, try doing something strange. If you want your life to be different, do different, think different. Sometimes all that you need to change is your mind and your beliefs! Stop setting limits on your life! Become part of the cycle of life which is to Dream, desire, create and inspire.........

The current model of parental discipline is as outdated as a rotary phone. Why don't our kids do what we want them to do? Parents often take the blame for misbehavior, but this obscures a broader trend: in our modern, highly connected age, children have less self-control than ever. About half of the current generation of children will develop a mood or behavioral disorder or a substance addiction by age eighteen. Contemporary kids need to learn independence and responsibility, yet our old ideas of punishments and rewards are preventing this from happening. To stem this growing crisis of self-regulation, journalist and parenting expert Katherine Reynolds Lewis articulates what she calls The Apprenticeship Model, a new theory of discipline that centers on learning the art of self-control. Blending new scientific research and powerful individual stories of change, Lewis shows that, if we trust our children to face consequences, they will learn to adapt and moderate their own behavior. She watches as chaotic homes become peaceful, bewildered teachers see progress, and her own family grows and evolves in light of these new ideas. You'll recognize your own family in Lewis's sensitive, realistic stories, and you'll find a path to making everyone in your home more capable, kinder, and happier -- including yourself.

The latest information about estrogen, the body's enlivening powerhouse hormone. Why is estrogen crucial—and so misunderstood? How do I know if my estrogen level is “normal”? What is the best treatment for a hormonal imbalance? How does estrogen impact my reproductive cycle? Is hormone replacement therapy right for me? Is it only useful at menopause? How can I be my best, healthiest self now and in the future? Understanding estrogen—its function and interplay with all your other hormones and body systems—is key to a healthy, vibrant life. But far too many women remain unaware of the benefits of estrogen, and how it can be supplemented in natural, bioidentical form. This book, written by an expert in the field of OB-GYN and integrative medicine, offers an authoritative yet accessible approach to hormonal health. In The Good News About Estrogen, Dr. Uzzi Reiss draws upon the most up-to-date scientific research, as well as women’s stories from his decades of practice, to explain: - How hormones—and your levels of estrogen—change over time, and what you can do to achieve balance naturally or with hormone replacement therapy (HRT). - The good news about estrogen—how it can enhance energy, sexuality, and memory; alleviate premenstrual syndrome (PMS) or the side effects of menopause; help fight weight gain, anxiety, depression, and more. - Bioidentical hormones—why they are safe and crucial to your well-being at any age or stage, and how to choose which treatment plan is right for you. - How your everyday habits—what you eat, drink, wear, and breathe—can affect hormonal health, and which small lifestyle changes can make a big difference. - Nutrition and exercise—learn how each works hand-in-hand with hormones and can help you to achieve maximum physical and emotional fitness, promote bone health, prevent cardiovascular disease, and boost brain power.
