Modern Lovers

Review
College friends and one-time band mates are now adults living in Brooklyn. Their past is still with them as they deal with divorce, sex, personal fulfillment, middle age and the deceased star singer. The author brings her characters to life so that the reader knows and is interested in each one. It's a little slice of today. Liked the ending in the form of where-are-they-now? news articles.

The One Got Away
Author
Leigh Himes
Review
A love story in which the title mis leads us to think the one other might have been the one. An interesting read that captures you until the very end. A woman with family in tow, happy? until a turn of events that catapults her into a harried life, one she does not expect.
I liked it very much.

Intent
Author

Review
Intent is a beautiful story. We meet Layne Elliott, NYC lawyer who has her life mapped out or so she thought when she catches her boyfriend of seven years in bed with her friend, who to add insult to injury is also pregnant. Her boss and mentor, Marcia Bettis, offers her a sabbatical at her vacation home in Oak Grove, Georgia. On her first day in town she saves a precocious four year old named River from being hit by a pickup truck backing out from a parking spot when she runs away from her sitter, Rose. Layne returns to Marcia's house and goes for a walk and to think how her life has gotten to this point when all of the sudden a horse interrupts her thoughts. All seems well as she strokes the horse until this very arrogant man starts laying into her about trespassing. After a less than stellar first impression imagine her surprise to find out that the arrogant man is River's dad, Ace Sharp. His demeanor changes when he finds out how she saved his precious child and a friendship begins to happen. To watch these two fall for each other was beautiful. Now things are not smooth sailing and them falling in love does not make everyone in this small town happy. This is a great read for a sunny afternoon. They are genuinely good people who deserve to be happy. They found their barn owl. I am curious to see a second book regarding Ace's sister, Lily and his business partner, Justin. More barn owls?

Crush
Author
Cathy Alter & Dave Singleton
Review
This book is about celebrities' crushes on other celebrities. In it are some well known celebrities and many I am not so familiar with like Stephen King, James Franco, Roxane Gay & Kermit Moyer to name a few. I enjoyed reading many of the admitted angsts, loves, embarrassing thoughts and yearns for famous actors and actresses - some I admit I also had for like Don Adams from Get Smart to Tarzan of the Apes - not my favorite, but how these writers wished they could be a part of their crushes' lives in either a small way to becoming a girlfriend of Brian Austin Green. I enjoyed reading these stories because it's interesting to learn that I was not alone in fantasizing about Jason Stathom, Jonn Hamm and the List goes on.
