Seventeen-year-old Bianca Piper is cynical and loyal, and she doesn’t think she’s the prettiest of her friends by a long shot. She’s also way too smart to fall for the charms of man-slut and slimy school hottie Wesley Rush. In fact, Bianca hates him. And when he nicknames her “Duffy,” she throws her Coke in his face.
But things aren’t so great at home right now. Desperate for a distraction, Bianca ends up kissing Wesley. And likes it. Eager for escape, she throws herself into a closeted enemies-with-benefits relationship with Wesley.

But the glittering winter landscape and the posh Idaho resort only provide the illusion of safety. When three students run …
As a photographer I tend to look at things from a slightly different eye than most people – I don’t have my pricing set up like a “typical” studio, I don’t “make” clients pick certain photo’s, I do my best and THEY get to pick which photo’s they like best out of maybe 15-20 of the best shots…
The reason? What I would pick, is almost 100% NOT what the parent likes best…
One shining example I got just today…I worked with little beautiful little boy, and today his parents ordered the photo’s they wanted from our session – me, I would have picked this one as my favorite…
Last week the wonderful author Jennifer Rardin passed away. We, here at Book Lovers Inc, were devastated and still can’t believe it. Jennifer was a wonderful funny and witty author and an even better person.
She was one of nicest authors I ever contacted and she welcomed me with so much warmth.
Her Jaz Parks series is one of the funniest urban fantasy series out there and know one should miss to get to know this wonderful unique heroine. Believe me you will laugh so much and don’t be able to stop.
Once Bitten, Twice Shy – Jaz Parks #1
I’m Jaz Parks. My boss is Vayl, born in Romania in 1744. Died there too, at the hand of his vampire wife, Liliana. But that’s ancient history. …

Bayou Moon by Ilona Andrews
Cerise Mar and her unruly clan are cash poor but land rich, claiming a large swathe of the Mire, the Edge swamplands between the state of Louisiana and the Weird. When her parents vanish, her clan’s long-time rivals are suspect number one.
But all is not as it seems. Two nations of the Weird are waging a cold war fought by feint and espionage, and their conflict is about to spill over into the Edge—and Cerise’s life. William, a changeling soldier who left behind the politics of the Weird, has been forced back into service to track down a rival nation’s spymaster.
When William’s and Cerise’s missions lead them to cross paths, sparks fly—but they’ll have to work together if they want to succeed … and survive.
Like we decided a few weeks ago we will now choose our favorite covers in a genre for the next few editions of “The Good, the Bad and the Are-You-Kidding-Me?” and tell you why we chose them. It would be awesome if you could tell us which cover in this genre is your favorite and perhaps we will all find some new to us cover candies we can obsess about.
This week we chose Contemporary Erotica covers for our fight … ahem .. discussion. This week we discovered something: we seem to read not nearly enough books in this genre. The only covers we could come up with were the one below and Susi had to work really hard to NOT only choose Megan Hart covers. But we have to say these ladies just write sooooo fantastic books …
