JAGGER: (Caldwell Brothers #3)

Image
JAGGERMJ FIELD, CHELSEA CAMARON

Full of swagger and sensuality, the Caldwell Brothers series—perfect for fans of Katy Evans and Emma Chase—packs an emotional punch as the last bachelor standing fights for a woman who’s worth every ounce of trouble.

Jagger Caldwell is no one’s hero. With a reputation busting heads and breaking hearts on the underground MMA circuit, he lives for easy cash and easier women. But when he stumbles upon an all-too-familiar scene, painful memories awaken Jagger’s sensitive side and compel him to act. As a kid, he stood by helplessly as his old man beat his mom. Now, Jagger won’t let seventeen-year-old Tatiana Rand suffer the same fate. Nothing matters except saving her.

Tatiana is a prisoner in her own home, at the mercy of her violent father—until an unlikely savior bursts through her door and into her life. Six-feet-plus of tattooed muscle and raw power, Jagger is no prince charming—but Tatiana stopped believing in fairy tales long ago. Despite their differenc…

JORDAN'S RETURN

JORDAN'S RETURNSAMANTHA CHASE

A Time of Healing...near-fatal accident at the hands of her abusive ex-husband. Wanting only to spend time bonding with her two sons and come up with a direction for their future, Jordan's perfectly crafted plan is turned upside down when she runs in to Rob Tyler, the first man who ever broker her heart.

A Second Chance...

He was content with his life; at least that's what Rob had been telling himself until seeing Jordan again. Spending time with her and her boys has Rob re-evaluating his life. Making up for his past mistakes won't be easy, but the chance of having Jordan back in his life makes him want to try.

Will a summer together be enough to heal old wounds? 

MY REVIEW:
     Jordan Manning was 16 when she fell madly in love with Rob Tyler.  For two years they had the best high school romance even talking about their future together and dreams of a family.  That was all shattered when they were at a party separately and Jordan caught him mak…

BLACK SABBATH

BLACK SABBATHMICK WALL

Decades before reality television was invented, Ozzy Osbourne was subversive and dark. Ozzy was the singer in the heavy metal band Black Sabbath, and they meant business. In an era when rock bands were measured by how 'heavy' they were, no one was weightier than Black Sabbath. All four founding members of the original Black Sabbath grew up within half-a-mile of each other in a tiny Birmingham suburb. Though all shared a deep love of music--The Beatles for Ozzy, the Mothers of Invention for Geezer, the Shadows and Chet Atkins for Iommi, and Gene Kruppa for Ward— they formed their group "as the quickest way out of the slums." This is the story of how they made that dream come true--and how it then turned into a nightmare for all of them. At the height of their fame, Sabbath discovered they'd been so badly ripped off by their managers they didn't even own their own songs. They looked for salvation from Don Arden—an even more notorious gangs…

THE OVERTAXED INVESTOR

THE OVERTAXED INVESTORPHIL DE MUTH

Taxes Come First

Every year, Congress used to paste together a mismash of temporary tax rules. Then the so-called American Taxpayer Relief Act of 2012 rocked this world, making long-range tax planning possible for the first time in a decade. Because tax rates skyrocketed, it also became necessary.

Being tax-smart is now more important than ever. In our low-return environment, high taxes on investments gnaw like rats on your profits. Taxes need to be the first thing an investor considers, not an afterthought. Today you have to start with taxes. Nationally recognized investment advisor Phil DeMuth decrypts the 73,954 pages of tax code to show you where the trip-wires lie. He offers simple rules of thumb to navigate the minefield, all in sparkling English.

If you aren't playing the long game with your taxes now, you are sending a valentine to the U.S. Treasury every April 15 with a needlessly fat check attached. DeMuth shows how to safely pare your inve…
