Meet Rochelle “Elle” Evans: pretty, popular - and never been kissed. Meet Noah Flynn: badass, volatile - and a total player. When Elle decides to run a kissing booth at her school's Spring Carnival, she locks lips with Noah and her life is turned upside down. Her head says to keep away, but her heart wants to draw closer. This romance seems far from a fairy tale. Is Elle headed for heartbreak or will she get her happily ever after?

I loved the movie but hated the language. After reading the book, I was really upset that the script was changed into so many ugly words.

Environmental issues, civil rights, education - you name it, she's probably been involved in a protest. When her latest cause lands her in jail for a few hours, she meets Silas Moore. He's in for a different kind of fighting. And though he's arrogant and not at all her type, she can't help being fascinated with him. Yet another lost cause.

When struggling novelist James Hernandez meets poet Louisa "Lou" Bell, he's sure he's just found the love of his life. There's just one problem: she's engaged to his oldest friend, Rob. So James toasts their union and swallows his desire. As the years pass, James's dreams always seem just out of reach - he can't finish that novel, can't mend his relationship with his father, can't fully commit to a romantic relationship. He just can't move on.

I read about half of this book and found it uninteresting. It felt like the same old thing, over & over. The love triangle was always changing. Lou getting pregnant was predictable & Jim offering to help her if she moved in was also predictable. Then Jim falls in love with a former student. Now she is a part of their lives. Lou takes it in stride. Here is where I didn’t want to put it down. Jim developed ALS & they all learn to live together & cope with this horrid disease.

The next time he wakes, two years have passed and Jeremy is now a spectator of his own life.

Because they know if they have totally satisfied their woman, then they’ll both be satisfied in the end. Cowboys aren’t left out either. Not only do they get to enjoy their women’s entire body as for-play, but in return they also get some really great for-play. when a Cowboy makes love to you, he uses all those wonderful, tan, muscles to move in all the right places.
So, you better hold on tight to your saddles ladies, because this is one book you don’t want to miss!!!!

When Darby meets Torin as a fellow counselor at the survival camp she impulsively applies to, she’s certain his main goal is to turn her world upside down, with his disheveled curly hair, irresistible dimples, and endearingly quirky habit of reciting quotes from classic movies and ancient thinkers. Darby’s not sure she can adapt to Torin’s way of viewing his past and the tragedies he's faced. Because she’s had her own share of heartache too, and as much as she wants to believe that it’s all been for a purpose, she hasn’t been able to move on.

"The Rules of Regret" is centered around the philosophy of 2 young adults (age 19/20). They come from 2 different worlds. They meet at summer camp. They are 2 of the counselors at
an intense program for troubled teens. Darby will be a Junior at Stanford University in the fall. She applies for the job to earn money. Torin, is the son of the Camp Directors/Owners & has grown up living in the mountains. I loved these characters & their intense interaction with each other. I would be careful about recommending
