Last week former downhill skier Bill Johnson passed away at the age of 55. In 1984 he became the first American man to win an Olympic gold medal in the downhill ski event. Because of a severe head injury from a skiing crash in 2001. Johnson after his victory in 1984, got married, and they had three children. He won two World Cup events, but then everything started going downhill. Not in just skiing with injuries, but with fighting with coaches, a son passing away drowning in a hot tube. Then a divorce. Losing money and the people around him he decided to go back into competitive skiing when the crash happened and his life went, no pun intended, downhill with a brain injury. He was the first American that I remember going balls to the wall in the downhill and beating not only the world but also Phil and Steve Mahre, who also won medals in 84. So sad that he passed at a young age and lived his life like his skiing all out.
Guess Who Will Be Here On Friday?
Toni J. Strawn
It’s not that Abby Harkness’s ex cheated. Hell, it’s not even that he did the dirty with her own sister. The worst part? Everyone—even her own mother—knew about it before she did.
These days, Abby’s nomadic job makes it easy to stick to the rules that protect her heart. Rule number one: Never stay in any man’s bed more than one night. But when a carefully planned tryst falls through, she finds herself stranded in a boardroom—naked—with the one man who makes her body scream danger.
Three hours of mind-blowing sex later, Marcus Brookhein walks out of the boardroom feeling like he just lost. That doesn’t sit with someone who lives and breathes competition. Next time, he’s making the rules. Starting by getting her assigned to work side by side with him.
Abby is desperate not to repeat a night of pleasure that left cracks in her carefully constructed defenses. But four long weeks of close proximity loom before her. And Marcus has a lot to teach her about playing dirty…
After her Prince Charming turns out to be Prince Cheating, Madison indulges in a no-holds-barred, one-night stand with a sexy stranger. It’s hot. And sensual. And so real, she’s not sure she can return to her superficial life. Except her manipulative mother has everything planned and letting Madison go isn’t part of it.
Cole has been too busy building his own business—and battling his rich family—to indulge his former hobby of seducing rich socialites. But with Madison, Cole can’t resist one tiny bite. And going back for seconds has disaster written all over it.
