Determined to remove herself from the rules and regulations of her overbearing religious parents, Avery escapes to college and is determined to make it on her own. Working as a bartender, and mere weeks before her college graduation, she finds herself face to face with 30 members of an outlaw motorcycle club. She had no idea when the president of the club walked in she'd go weak in the knees for the gorgeous tattooed biker.

Probably better off as fanfic and not nearly as good. Nothing useful about this story line or "character development".

For over 20 years, a select group of Yale undergraduates has been admitted into the year-long "Grand Strategy" seminar team-taught by John Lewis Gaddis and Paul Kennedy. Its purpose: to provide a grounding in strategic decision-making in the face of crisis to prepare future American leaders for important work. Now, John Lewis Gaddis has transposed the experience of that course into a wonderfully succinct, lucid and inspirational book, a view from the commanding heights of statesmanship across the landscape of world history from the ancient Greeks to Lincoln, and beyond.

Sixteen-year-old Sasha Lawson has only ever known one small, ordinary life. When she was young, she loved her grandfather's stories of parallel worlds, inhabited by girls who looked like her but led totally different lives. Sasha never believed such worlds were real - until now, when she finds herself thrust into one against her will. To prevent imminent war, Sasha must slip into the life of an alternate version of herself, a princess who has vanished on the eve of her arranged marriage. If Sasha succeeds in fooling everyone, she will be returned home; if she fails, she'll be trapped in another girl's life forever.

In the aftermath of his terrible war, Ender Wiggin disappeared, and a powerful voice arose: the Speaker for the Dead, who told the true story of the Bugger War. Now, long years later, a second alien race has been discovered by Portuguese colonists on the planet Lusitania. But again the aliens' ways are strange and frightening...again, humans die. And it is only the Speaker for the Dead, who is also Ender Wiggin the Xenocide, who has the courage to confront the mystery...and the truth.

O.S.C. has an incredible ability to delve deep to the heart of society and place his hand directly against the pulse. He, like Ender, forces one to find the answer to questions you didn't even realize you were asking yourself. By the end of the book just the dialogue alone calls for the reader to be instrospective, to weigh the rights and wrongs against your own. I cannot wait to read the rest of the series. I'm so upset that it took me this long to get to it.

There was no doubt about it Helen Thompson loved her husband deeply. She had from the first moment she had met him nearly 15 years ago. He was a kind and gentle giant of a man, a good man. But oh my was he boring! All this was about to change when Helen saw a dangerously curious advert on Craigslist that seemed to promise a release from the monotony, the taste of excitement she craved so much.

It was certainly interesting, and well written. My two problems are 1) the odd and abrupt ending 2) the poor display of the BDSM life.
The 'BDSM' that is illustrated in this book is 100% abuse, not bdsm. Please do not assume this is how your bdsm sex life should be. Consent and communication are the most important thing.
