If you think you had it rough as a kid, just read/listen to this autobiography in love and survival. It will grab you by the balls and not let go. Even if you do not have balls, you will be glad of it because you will still feel that special pain from the squeeze. Maybe even from the kicks with steel toes.

This book makes you feel there as a street kid with nothing but hope, and not be afraid to fight for it. You can feel the punches hit best with Audiobook, but the book is painful, too.

The description is real by someone who was there and felt the punches and kicks as either giver or receiver. It hurts either way. The language is more polite than what was probably said, but it is real enough and more understandable without accents to murder the words.

The sex and language are not minor characters, but are not as explicit as reality. Your dirty imagination will translate just fine. Remember, these were kids out of control on drugs and alcohol, not Disney characters trying to be perfect.

If you can finish it, then your next book will be the sequel. Spoiler alert! The author lived to read what he wrote for both books. if that's not enough, seek some of the band's music out to remember a different time and a distant place that still exists in drugged memory of those few who survived.

Perfect voice for Charlie

This book is a year in the life of a 15 - 16 year old as he struggles with life, family, friends, school, sexuality, maturity, future planning, and psychology.

Charlie is a wallflower who observes, analyzed, reacts, and internalizes the changing world around him without becoming fully involved in the process of the outcome.

He is able to fit in without being absorbed by events, almost like the catalyst in a chemical process, causing changes but not changing.

He is accepted as he is and respected for his ability to flow with the events that disrupt his friends' lives while helping them to heal in the process of learning about life and love.

He is what everyone should have as a friend, but most people do not. He is very smart most of the time, but very vulnerable all the time, quickly switching as needed for his friends and family.

As he sorts thru the confusion and secrets, he is a rock solid support even as he struggles with early in life challenges that keep him in distress as the past protrudes into the present with conflict and confusion.

Charlie has a lot in common with my early life and my fixation with age 15 as the ideal age for me. But he has move on in his education and experience to approaching adulthood as adolescence vanishes into the shadows.

Good thing successful men do, too.

Sometimes the timing is not quite right.
Sometimes the communication is missed.
Sometimes distractions are confused.
Often fears produce worries.
Often silence is heard wrong.
Often separation is enduring.
Usually time grows the chasm
That separates the hearts.
But time can bring together
The melting pot for hearts.

Watch out for feathers in the soup if you marry an angel for cherubs.

Covered with wings but not necessarily good.

When you are dating a known criminal up to nefarious purposes, do not fall in love.

When you are dating a spy, you work under the covers and try to hide your true identity.

When you are a spy dating an angel, you need to avoid commitment.

When you are a Cherub, you come between angels and crooks.

Some bets you have to work for and fight to win. Some bets make for mutual winners. Some bets you get screwed.

What if it is all the above? With love thrown in for good pleasure.

Maybe broken, but we'll rewarded in the end.

Catnaps, cat nappers, cat treats, cat fights, and stolen cats. Twice. No condoms. No morning after pill, stalkers, broken phones, broken promises, broken angels, good friends, good fathers, good grief. This was to be a short story. A really good story.

Instead it is great! Be careful, Kieran. Run!

Heaven's turns boys into angels with wings.

And virgins into parents with amazing lovers as fate makes things perfect. This is a great start to a series that is too hot to miss. Dancers and prancers without reindeer, but enough gifts to make the antlers perk up in the crowd anyway.

Somehow tragedy and love can make men out of boys and boys out of men. Differences can become uniting forces and understanding can bridge floods of tears. Listening to the needs of adults and kids can guide healing and produce true friendship and fellowship as hope blossoms in hearts awaiting the next book in the series.

If you are going to get plugged, enjoy it.

Nico wants to be a lawyer to save his uncle that raised him as a father. But his uncle is in jail as a falsely convicted murderer. The arresting officer on the case is Case, Landon Case. Nico wants his uncle released back into his life and will do anything to keep Case on the case.

As the two search for and follow up on clues, holes in the case keep appearing. Vital evidence was ignored. Testimony from witnesses was not taken. Nico tries to get Case interested, but not just in the case. Tracking down witnesses involves shared hotel rooms and bed. Interviewing witnesses at a sex club implants more ideas as lust longs for satisfaction and love links the case in their hearts.

But before the shot rings out, Nico is stupid, scaring Case. Case is already regretting denying Nico his promise to help with the case when he realizes his promise to protect and to serve.

Too bad Noah and Quinn did not find each other yet. Maybe next in the series of events.

When things go bad, go to bed with an old friend.

The same thing works for when things go good, but when you are homeless without money or a job and also have a horse, even a barn might smell good.

Bankruptcy or long lost boyfriend, both can be trouble, but the horse can provide the glue to get them back together better than the glue factory.

Was there special meaning in the saddle he gave to Jacob for his 12th birthday? Was the crippling injury worse than the memories of trail rides on Butterscotch for Jacob? Why was Thomas doubtful then dumbfounded as partnerships and relationships ring up a new development without houses? Can Jack get off the hook after kicking out his son and watching him fail? Can Momma figure out who is wearing the saddle now?

Who cares? It's happily ever after on the ranch for the loving couple! Just read it to find out which couple gets the ranch house and if the horse can keep the barn.
