Boomer's Bucket List
When her cuddly canine companion Boomer is diagnosed with a rare heart condition, Jennifer Westbrook decides to take Boomer on the greatest road trip of his life. But when she tries to sneak Boomer into a NASCAR press box - disguised as her seeing-eye dog - Jennifer's cover is blown by a curious, but very cute reporter named Nathan Koslow. Boomer takes an instant shine to Nathan, unlike the other men in Jennifer's life. When the charming journalist asks to join them on their journey, she can't say no. But when she learns that someone has created a website called Boomer's Bucket List - and it's gone totally viral - the trip takes a wildly unexpected turn for Jennifer, Nathan, and the dog who brought them together.
Should the Tent Be Burning Like That?
Maybe the best way to explain Bill Heavey's writing is to note that both Ted Nugent and the Wall Street Journal - two entities rarely seen in the same sentence - like it. For more than 20 years, Heavey has staked a claim as one of America's best sportsmen writers. In feature stories and his Field & Stream column A Sportsman's Life, he has taken audiences across the country and beyond to experience his triumphs and failures as a suburban dad who happens to love hunting and fishing.
This new collection gathers together a wide range of his best work - tales that are odes to the notion that enthusiasm is more important than skill and testaments to the enduring power of the natural world. Whether he's hunting mule deer in Montana, draining cash on an overpriced pistol, or ruminating on the joys and agonies of outdoor gear, Heavey always entertains and enlightens with honesty and wit.
The Roommate Agreement
Let your homeless best friend stay with you, he said. Being roommates will be fun, he said. It's only temporary, he said.
He never said I'd fall for him.
You know what isn't temporary? The endless stream of dirty socks in my bathroom and empty food packets under the sofa - and don't even get me started on the hot guys who take over my living room every Sunday to watch sports.
I can't take anymore.
So I propose a roommate agreement. One that will bring peace and order back to my life, complete with rules that might just stop my newfound crush on my best friend in its tracks.
When a hockey player with a major PR problem finds himself on a bad date with a redhead, he has to tough it out for five dates without flaking - or falling in love.
Player: A Fake Relationship Romantic Comedy
He plays the bass with expert fingers. He plays women with intoxicating charm. And he'll play me with the ease of a virtuoso. Who better to teach me to play than the master himself? I'm his model student, front row, pencil sharp. Pick-up lines? I've got them. Free drinks? By the dozen. Kissing? Let me grab my chapstick. But the most valuable lesson I've learned is that there's so much I don't know-like why his touch sets off a chain reaction straight to my nethers…or how I'm certain each kiss is the best I'll ever have…until the moment his lips take mine again. There's so much I don't know…like the fact that I'm only a bet. But we are what we are, and he's a player through and through.
Cinderella Screwed Me Over
Darby Quinn has a bone to pick with Cinderella. Burned one too many times by ex-boyfriends, Darby has lost all belief in the happily-ever-after that the fairy-tale princess promised her. She's sworn off love, Prince Charmings, and happy endings and she's happy about it. Really. Or at least she was…until she met Jake, her gorgeous neighbor and the manager of her favorite restaurant. But Darby has rules about dating, ones she's culled from her years spent with so-called "princes," and starting something with Jake would break all of them.
Charming, fun, and unwilling to give up on her, Jake doesn't fit any of the profiles Darby has created from her case studies of ex-princes-gone-bad. Finally presented with her own Prince Charming, can Darby take a chance on a happily-ever-after?
