Book Short Summary:

The S.I.N. series continues with the seductive follow-up to the Stark International Novel Dirtiest Secret, from the New York Times bestselling author of “red-hot and angsty” fiction that “keeps readers guessing” (Publishers Weekly, on Under My Skin). No one can know about our love—and hiding only makes it hotter. Dallas Sykes has a reputation. He is known for his parties, his money, and the countless women on his arm. Yet the Dallas I know is a different man—darker, smarter, and unbearably sexy. Just one look from him can leave me breathless; the anticipation of his touch can make me lose control. Inextricably bound by our past, we keep each other’s secrets. And while there are people who have the power to hurt us, it’s the truth that threatens us most of all. Dallas can be mine only behind closed doors, our passion as searing as it is forbidden. Yet nothing in this world has ever felt so desperately, deliciously right. Praise for Hottest Mess “J. Kenner has done an amazing job writing about this delicate subject. . . . Be prepared for a roller coaster filled with twists and turns, ups and downs, hope, heartbreak and cliffhangers.”—Book Boyfriend Blog “The heat practically radiates from the page. . . . This book is sexy, romantic, steamy and thrilling all wrapped into one extremely well written package.”—Books & Boys Book Blog “Kenner continued to push the boundaries with this edgy, passionate story. Forbidden love has never felt quite so right as it did between the perfect, combustible pairing of Dallas and Jane.”—Harlequin Junkie “Gripping and consuming . . . Hottest Mess reveals the heartbreak and pain of betrayal, [and] the need for revenge.”—The Reading Cafe “Kenner has created a fascinating world with raw and intriguing characters that you want to root for. . . . This is a series not to be missed!”—About That Story Praise for J. Kenner’s Dirtiest Secret “[A] high-octane contemporary, the first in [Kenner’s] new Stark International Novel (S.I.N.) trilogy . . . Kenner skillfully builds a top-notch thriller.”—Publishers Weekly “Fans of Kenner’s steamy, decadent and daring plotlines will feel right at home in her new S.I.N. series and revel in the escapades of her tortured characters and their forbidden passion. As always, Kenner delivers a sensual and heady physical relationship, fraught with danger, forbidden love and high-stakes complications.”—RT Book Reviews “Strong writing propels an exciting tale of longing, danger, and forbidden desire. The ending’s twist will leave readers eager for the next installment.”—Library Journal Hottest Mess is intended for mature audiences.

Book Short Summary:

Sweet & Savory saved me. For years, I've been going through immense waves of depression, since I could even remember. I wanted this book to be as a guide, to show others and myself that their feelings are valid. Through life, we're taught how to make and use money, how to save, and that one day, you'd be able to afford that dream car or that ideal house. But no one goes into depth about the emotional state you have to constantly be in to live this life--to feel as though nothing will change and the vicious cycle you're in will continue to repeat itself from generation to generation. Through these words I've written, I've poured out my heart. I've written my truth over and over to engrave it in my mind. I learned to use my hurt as fuel, to ignite my dreams with my own self-doubt. Starting my journey of self-discovery, I listened to podcasts, read different books, and followed different influencers; but I still didn't feel fulfilled. I kept getting this nagging feeling that it just wasn't enough--that I need more. The raw truth hurts sometimes, which is one reason not so many people can truly deal with it or have it present in their lives. I've lost many people on my path, and I could never wrap my head around it. I am constantly looking for the "why?" and forever needing a reason to keep on striving. One day, I realized that I was the only reason that mattered. I was indeed the only person keeping me going. This power I continued to search for outside of myself has always been within me. If you ask a person if they're happy, they'll proceed to tell you all of the external reasons why, if they happen to say yes--never touching on the intimate reasons, what they have to tell themselves to keep going. Self-love is so far from the truth that society is custom too. It would shock most to know the way I healed these deep wounds was by love, listening to my own needs, and listening to music that my spirit was calling me to that day. As shocking as it may be, to know that crying is one of the best antibiotics there is--to release pain, confusion, jealousy, egotistical habits, and the need to self-sabotage; to be free of the old life you were stuck in; to know you had the key all along--is something you'd never forget. I hope one day, I'm able to continue showering this world with love and gems of knowledge that I've learned on my way. We as a collective deserve better. We deserve to heal. I see so many people repeating the same patterns, thinking they can't escape or that it's the only way. We were meant to love on the next and spread fruits of wisdom to nourish our loved ones. I understand it's a big responsibility to say I have something that can help change the world, but with how I see it is, I can start with one book at a time.

Book Short Summary:

The genesis of Real Men Wear PINK evolved at the end of a five-year estrangement from my brother Pink McCaskell Jr. After serving time at Mason County Jail in Michigan, Pink returned home with hopes of leaving his past behind to embark on uncharted territory. Pink's journey would begin with unconventional access to college. Ironically, two brothers'--"the thug" and "the scholar"--paths crossed on a college campus. Though I was the scholar, he became my professor and unveiled the mysteries of machismo behavior in the context of racial, gender, and economic oppression. Machismo is the professor of Black men. He proliferates the luxuries of sex, aggression, power, deviance, and aloofness. Real Men Wear PINK uses the creativity of storytelling to unveil how machismo manifests in four Black male collegians from diverse backgrounds--Avery Johnson, Jaleen Gonzalez, Julius Simba-Simbi, and Pink McCaskell Jr. At the crossroads, each is challenged with accepting their past and forging a promising future. The book uniquely captures the struggles of being Black, male, and a collegian by using parables rooted in theory and practice to reimagine Black males' purpose, integrity, nurture, and knowledge--PINK.

Book Short Summary:

An incisive, intersectional essay anthology that celebrates and examines romance and romantic media through the lens of Black readers, writers, and cultural commentators, edited by Book Riot columnist and librarian Jessica Pryde. Romantic love has been one of the most essential elements of storytelling for centuries. But for Black people in the United States and across the diaspora, it hasn't often been easy to find Black romance joyfully showcased in entertainment media. In this collection, revered authors and sparkling newcomers, librarians and academicians, and avid readers and reviewers consider the mirrors and windows into Black love as it is depicted in the novels, television shows, and films that have shaped their own stories. Whether personal reflection or cultural commentary, these essays delve into Black love now and in the past, including topics from the history of Black romance to social justice and the Black community to the meaning of desire and desirability. Exploring the multifaceted ways love is seen—and the ways it isn't—this diverse array of Black voices collectively shines a light on the power of crafting happy endings for Black lovers. Jessica Pryde is joined by Carole V. Bell, Sarah Hannah Gomez, Jasmine Guillory, Da’Shaun Harrison, Margo Hendricks, Adriana Herrera, Piper Huguley, Kosoko Jackson, Nicole M. Jackson, Beverly Jenkins, Christina C. Jones, Julie Moody-Freeman, and Allie Parker in this collection.

Studies of sexuality in Caribbean culture are on the rise, focusing mainly on homosexuality and homophobia or on regional manifestations of normative and nonnormative sexualities. The Cross-Dressed Caribbean extends this exploration by using the trope of transvestism not only to analyze texts and contexts from anglophone, francophone, Spanish, Dutch, and diasporic Caribbean literature and film but also to highlight reinventions of sexuality and resistance to different forms of exploitation and oppression.

Book Short Summary:

The musical adventure of a lifetime. The most exciting book on music in years. A book of treasure, a book of discovery, a book to open your ears to new worlds of pleasure. Doing for music what Patricia Schultz—author of the phenomenal 1,000 Places to See Before You Die—does for travel, Tom Moon recommends 1,000 recordings guaranteed to give listeners the joy, the mystery, the revelation, the sheer fun of great music. This is a book both broad and deep, drawing from the diverse worlds of classical, jazz, rock, pop, blues, country, folk, musicals, hip-hop, world, opera, soundtracks, and more. It's arranged alphabetically by artist to create the kind of unexpected juxtapositions that break down genre bias and broaden listeners’ horizons— it makes every listener a seeker, actively pursuing new artists and new sounds, and reconfirming the greatness of the classics. Flanking J. S. Bach and his six entries, for example, are the little-known R&B singer Baby Huey and the '80s Rastafarian hard-core punk band Bad Brains. Farther down the list: The Band, Samuel Barber, Cecelia Bartoli, Count Basie, and Afropop star Waldemer Bastos. Each entry is passionately written, with expert listening notes, fascinating anecdotes, and the occasional perfect quote—"Your collection could be filled with nothing but music from Ray Charles," said Tom Waits, "and you'd have a completely balanced diet." Every entry identifies key tracks, additional works by the artist, and where to go next. And in the back, indexes and playlists for different moods and occasions.

Book Short Summary:

From the bestselling Bridget Jones's Diary that started the trend to the television sensation Sex and the City that captured it on screen, "chick lit" has become a major pop culture phenomenon. Banking on female audiences' identification with single, urban characters who struggle with the same life challenges, publishers have earned millions and even created separate imprints dedicated to the genre. Not surprisingly, some highbrow critics have dismissed chick lit as trashy fiction, but fans have argued that it is as empowering as it is entertaining. This is the first volume of its kind to examine the chick lit phenomenon from a variety of angles, accounting for both its popularity and the intense reactions-positive and negative-it has provoked. The contributors explore the characteristics that cause readers to attach the moniker "chick" to a particular book and what, if anything, distinguishes the category of chick lit from the works of Jane Austen on one end and Harlequin romance novels on the other. They critique the genre from a range of critical perspectives, considering its conflicted relationship with feminism and postfeminism, heterosexual romance, body image, and consumerism. The fourteen original essays gathered here also explore such trends and subgenres as "Sistah Lit," "Mommy Lit," and "Chick Lit Jr.," as well as regional variations. As the first book to consider the genre seriously, Chick Lit offers real insight into a new generation of women's fiction.

Book Short Summary:

The Magisterium of the Roman Catholic Church condemns in vitro fertilization (IVF) as a morally unacceptable method of human reproduction. But when Father Cletus Nicholas McCarthy is outed in court as the first IVF-conceived Catholic priest, Pope Benedict XVI must make a difficult choiceannul McCarthys ordination without any relevant canon to back his action and risk a backlash from the people, the press, and the general public, or allow McCarthy to continue to exercise his priesthood, thereby indirectly endorsing IVF as morally acceptable. The Mirror Apocalypse follows the popes and McCarthys stories as it speaks to the numerous ethical issues that arise every day in the world of medical science, religion, and health care. While most of the new technologies invented in the medical field are meant to solve lifes problems, often their use can go against the religious dictates of a people and what they hold dear in their faith. The Mirror Apocalypse is a tale of just the kind of moral impasse that can affect such peoplefor better or for worse. Will Father McCarthys situation help lead the church forward, or will the pope have to make a no-win decision about the future? Or will the throes and turmoil of it all, coupled with the demands of all the other problems facing the church, force this aging pope to resign his papacy? Join Father McCarthy and Pope Benedict XVI as they stand at the intersection of science, morality, and faith.
