New Release + Review Tour + 4.5-Star Review: Torrid Little Affair by Kendall Ryan

 

 

TLA Amazon

The best way to get over someone is to get under someone else. And I have the perfect candidate all picked out.

My new assistant is tempting beyond belief with her curvy body and take-no-shit attitude. All those luscious curves, and a juicy ass I’m already in love with. God, the things that I would do to that ass…

But it’s the haunted look in her eyes that speaks to me. Like she’s taken just as much shit in her past as I have—maybe more. We both deserve a little fun.

Love can’t fix everything. Mind-blowing sex and a few killer orgasms, on the other hand?

I have a feeling those might do the trick.

Tracey’s Review

It’s funny how invested we become in the lives and characters of the books that we read. When Cooper Kingsley had his heart broken in DIRTY LITTLE PROMISE, my heart hurt right along with his. I mean, Cooper is the sweetest, the most approachable, the most, well, normal of the Kingsley brothers. But, now, in TORRID LITTLE AFFAIR, well, we’re seeing a completely different side of him.

Kendall Ryan just keeps the hot reads coming, and I fell in love with Cooper all over again in this, his story. He and Corinne are on fire, but there’s still the Cooper that I know and love hiding behind all of the hurt that he’s been harboring. These two are absolutely perfect for each other, and I enjoyed every single thing about their story.

Kendall has scored another hit with TORRID LITTLE AFFAIR, completely on point with the picture that she paints of two broken pieces coming together to make the perfect whole. Another 4.5 read, this book is, by turn, scandalous, scorching, and sweet, and is a must-read for Kendall’s fans, and anyone looking for a white-hot romance that will leave you smiling. Now, to see what Kendall has up her sleeve for Quinn Kingsley…

 

A New York Times, Wall Street Journal, and USA Today bestselling author of more than two dozen titles, Kendall Ryan has sold over 1.5 million books and her books have been translated into several languages in countries around the world.

About Back Home at Firefly Lake (Firefly Lake #3):

 

Title: Back Home at Firefly Lake

Author: Jen Gilroy

Genre: Contemporary Romance / Women’s Fiction

Release Date: December 5, 2017

Publisher: Forever – Grand Central Publishing

Series: Firefly Lake

 

She has a million reasons to leave. Can he give her the one she needs to stay?

Cat McGuire’s return to Firefly Lake is turning into much more than she bargained for. Sure, she missed the crisp pine-scented air and the comfort of having her family around her. But being home makes her feel less like the successful single mom she is–and more like the awkward teen who never fit in. It doesn’t help that hockey-pro Luc Simard is back in town, too. Luc was her childhood crush, the hometown hero who never noticed her, and yet somehow he still makes her heart skip a beat.

Luc’s homecoming has been bittersweet. He’s lost his wife and his career, but there’s no better place to start over than Firefly Lake. Coaching the local kids’ hockey team makes him feel alive again, and he thinks his life is complete–until Cat arrives. The shy girl he always wanted to protect is now the gorgeous woman who’s stealing his heart and making him believe in second chances. But how can he convince Cat that Firefly Lake is where she truly belongs?

Excerpt:

Luc’s heart squeezed. [Cat] was embarrassed to ask her family for help, like he’d have been embarrassed asking his. Except, that would never be an issue because he had more money than he could spend in one lifetime. Money to finance the creamery expansion his dad had talked about for years, and to send his folks on that cruise they’d hankered after but could never afford because of the cost of raising four kids and putting most of them through college. Money for everything except what mattered most—taking care of his wife and their child like he’d planned.

“Pay for the hockey registration when your grant comes through.” He tried to smile. “I know you’re good for it.”

“Thanks.” Cat’s voice cracked and she took one hand away from her bag to rub it across her face. “Hockey means everything to Amy. I want her to be able to play, but she’s growing so fast right now.”

“Hockey’s an expensive sport.” He slid an arm around her shoulders and gave her a little squeeze. The same kind of friendly squeeze he’d given her all those times back in high school when she’d saved his butt in chemistry. Before today, however, his fingers had never tingled when he’d touched Cat. His body had never heated, either.

Cat started and pulled away at the same instant he did. “Hockey can be a dangerous sport too, and now Amy will be playing with boys. She hasn’t played with boys since she was seven. She could get hurt.

Like he had, hurt so bad it had ended his career. “Amy’s playing minor hockey. At her age, there is a rule about no body checking.” He tried to make his tone reassuring. “I promise I’ll keep a close eye on her.” It was his job as her coach, and he’d do the same for any kid. It had nothing to do with the strange and unexpected attraction he all of a sudden had for this woman he’d known his whole life, who he’d never really looked at until today.

A woman who wasn’t Maggie. Luc’s stomach clenched in a tangled lump of guilt and grief, tied tight with a slippery ribbon of disloyalty. Maggie was never coming back, but that didn’t mean Luc could forget her. Or that he wanted to.

Tracey’s Review

Cat McGuire has mixed feelings about returning to her hometown of Firefly Lake, Vermont. She never quite fit in, preferring to spend time with her studies and her books to joining in with the other kids, and being back is enough to make her forget all of the successes she’s had since leaving. Luc Simard, hometown hero, was good at everything, but never made Cat feel anything less than accepted. Now that both are back in town, the feelings of friendship that they’d always shared are growing into something that neither one expected, and they’re not quite sure what to do about it.

Cat and Luc are both somewhat shut down in matters of the heart. While Cat has put her all into raising her daughter on her own, she hasn’t found a place in her heart to trust men. Both her father and the father of her child haven’t given her any good reason to open herself up, and it isn’t until seeing how much love has changed her brother, and reconnecting with her friend Luc, that Cat’s heart begins to make room for love.

Since the death of his wife, Luc has closed himself off emotionally. The guilt that he feels for choices that he made, and the way that things played out, has made him unable to even entertain the idea of another chance at love. Until Cat, that is. Because he’s seeing her in a completely different light, and it isn’t long before he can’t but give in to the feelings that he has.

When I reviewed SUMMER AT FIREFLY LAKE, the previous book in this heartwarming and feel-good series by author Jen Gilroy, I commented that sometimes going back home, to a place, and a group of people, is not only possible, but necessary. Jen cements this sentiment beautifully in BACK HOME AT FIREFLY LAKE, the third book in this series, and her most recent release. Full of redemption, passion, and second chances, BACK HOME AT FIREFLY LAKE is an emotional read that makes is easy to believe in the power of love. This small town, peopled with strong families and friends, is a pleasure to spend time in, and I thoroughly enjoyed seeing Cat and Luc get their chance at love. It is an easy 4 stars for me, and perfect for readers that enjoy a small town setting, supportive, if interfering, family and friends, and a sense of rightness that comes with finding out that you’ve ended up exactly where you’re supposed to be.

Tracey’s Reviews

RECKLESS BEAT

Alana Shelton and Mitchell Davies couldn’t be more different. She’s spent her life sheltered by her mother and closed off from the outside world, while he is lead guitarist of Reckless Beat, surrounded by fans and living (and loving) the rock star life. One night, one twist of fate, and their lives will be changed in ways that neither could have imagined.

Books about rockers are some of my favorites, so when I had the opportunity to read the Reckless Beat series by author Eden Summers, I jumped at the chance. I knew from the first scene that Blind Attraction would go right on my list of favorites. Alana has been sheltered for her whole life, but is no shrinking violet. Because she hasn’t had all the usual experiences of the typical 20-something woman, she is eager to get out and live, to see what life has to offer. And, although meeting up with a famous rocker wasn’t exactly what she had in mind, once she meets Mitch, she can’t help but see what the night has to offer. Although Mitch and the rest of Reckless Beat are wildly successful and living the life that goes with fame, he’s ready for something else. Alana’s innocence draws him in, making him determined to get to know her. A freak accident leaves her dependent on Mitch and the rest of the band, and starts them on the road to an attraction that can’t be extinguished.

This was a quick read for me because, once I picked it up, I did not want to put it down. Eden Summers has a gift with characters and dialogue, and I absolutely love every single member of Reckless Beat already. I am already looking forward to getting to know them better as their stories roll out. And Mitchell and Alana, well, they are super-hot and sweet and tender at the same time. Watching them learn to rely on each other, and the changes that they undergo as they spend more time together, is swoon-worthy, and makes their story the perfect introduction to this series. Blind Attraction is an easy 4.5 ‘smoking hot, super-dreamy, can’t wait for the next one’ read for me, and should be on your TBR. Grab this one, and enjoy.

RECKLESS ADDICTION

Gabi Smith means more to Blake Kennedy than she can imagine. She was there for him in his darkest hour, a friend when he needed one most. And now he’s about to rock her world…

Passionate Addiction is the second book in the Reckless Beat series by author Eden Summers. I will tell you, I am in love with the guys of Reckless Beat, and Blake is one of my favorites. The newest member of the band, he’s overcome the darkness of addiction, and has Gabi to thank for helping him. And, although they’ve been best friends for years, they’ve never met, and Gabi’s birthday provides just the opportunity for Blake to surprise her with a visit and show her how much he cares. But even finally coming face to face doesn’t mean a happy ending when the ghosts of Blake’s past come back to haunt him and Gabi.

This series is entertaining, but still has the angsty moments that make the happy moments even better. And, yes, there’s plenty hotness and humor, making this one lovely read. I am loving these books more and more with each subsequent installment, and really enjoying seeing how Eden is developing each of the guys as the stories unfold. 4.5 enthusiastic stars for Passionate Addiction; add this series to your TBRs, you won’t be sorry.

RECKLESS WEEKEND

What do you get when the members of Reckless Beat and their ladies head to Sin City for a little friendly fun and games? Mayhem, madness, and more good times than should be legal…

Oh, my gosh, I cannot say enough how much I loved Reckless Weekend, book 2.5 in the Reckless Beat series by Eden Summers. One word: shenanigans. And LOTS of them. When the guys and their women hit Las Vegas for a getaway weekend, they are all over the place. Competition between the guys and the girls is fierce, and perhaps a little bit unequal (may I just say, GO LADIES!), and it isn’t long before chaos ensues, but in the best possible way.

This is a shorter read, but nonetheless as sexy and entertaining as the rest of the series. And, although the books are standalones, they do build on each other, so there would be some major spoilers going on here if you haven’t read the first two books. Reckless Weekend is so much fun, and an easy 4.5 stars, so if you’re looking for a good-time read, and are a fan of hot rockers and the women that love them, grab this one.

UNDESIRED LUST

The men of Reckless Beat seem to have it all. At the top of their game, and fresh from winning a major industry award, things couldn’t look brighter. Until a very private moment goes public, giving two of their own and the woman that they both want the sort of publicity that no one seeks.

Eden Summers keeps upping her game with each new book in the Reckless Beat series. Undesired Lust, the third book in the series, brings Eden’s signature rockstar hotness, but the angst in this one is ratcheted up a notch, and I could not have enjoyed it more.

In a moment, Sidney Higgins, collaborator on the band’s prize-winning song, went from being one of the most sought-after songwriters in the business to a virtual pariah. Giving in to her passion for not one, but two, of the band members brought her lower than she could have ever imagined. And as far as she can tell, she’s alone in her misery.

Mason Lynch, lead singer for Reckless Beat, has hit an artistic slump, and nothing seems to be snapping him out of it. When the label and the band’s manager suggest that he and Sidney work together again, he’s less than enthusiastic, knowing that she holds him responsible for her very public humiliation. Convincing her to forget her anger enough to help him and the band will be a major feat, and one that he’s not sure that he can pull off.

I really enjoyed this book, and appreciated seeing Mason from a different perspective. Up to this point, he’s come across as a self-absorbed groupie-chasing sort of egomaniac, but seeing how he feels about Sidney, and finding out more of his backstory painted him in a very different light. And Sean. Oh, Sean. Sean Taiden, the drummer for Reckless Beat, is the third piece of this conflicted puzzle, and I could not help falling more and more for him. I’m really looking forward to his story in the upcoming books.

As with each of the books in the series, Undesired Lust was a quick read for me because I was so engrossed and did not want to put it down. Another easy 4.5 stars for this one, and a recommendation to add the whole set to your TBR.

EXCERPT

Singer

Slipping off my shoes, I dim the lights on the wall panel. I take my clothes off and hang them on a hook near the door before returning to the tub.

   The tub, warm and inviting as I step in, eases my aching feet from my high heels and the tension in my shoulders. I pour some of the bubble suds and giggle. That was so cute and showed me a whole new side to Ethan—the at-home Texan who relates to his roots—instead of the strong, quieter, broodier man I see sometimes.

   While the suds foam and the tub fills, I look out the window. The sky is clear up here. The buildings are far enough apart to avoid spying on neighbors. It’s like floating in heaven.

   I hear his knock on the door, so I call, “Come in,” while making sure the bubbles cover all the important parts.

   Ethan walks in with two glasses of champagne in one hand and the bottle in the other.

   “You came prepared,” I note, leaning back on one side of the tub.

   “I thought I might join you.” He waggles his eyebrows.

   I giggle and reach for a glass. “Come on in,” I reply and wonder if he will really take me up on my dare.

   He sets the bottle and his glass down on the side of the tub. His tie was removed before he came in and I notice his shoes are long gone, along with his jacket. When he starts on the buttons of his shirt, I sit up, scooping suds over me. “Wait, for real?”

   “Yep. I think that tub’s big enough for the two of us.”

   “But you said you don’t take baths.”

   “I also said I’ve never used this one. Seems like an opportune time.”

   “But I’m naked,” I say, worried about everything—his body naked next to mine, not shaving my legs before I went out tonight. My mind flickers through my flaws. Ugh. No. Just no. Not like that. That stuff should be shared in the dark of a bedroom under the influence of alcohol and desperate sex. We’re too sober for this. I’m too sober for this. What does he possibly see in me when he has women like Nicolina waiting?

   He’s more than I’ve imagined, and in some senses, it scares me. He’s the sort of man women like Nicolina land. For once though, it was as if she saw me as competition. The feeling is exhilarating.

   “Like I said, seems like an opportune time.”

   His shirt is dropped, his undershirt following quickly behind. Good God Almighty. What does a guy who looks like that see in me? “I see you like to work out.” I clear my throat and want to bonk my head on the side of the tub for saying it out loud.

   Chuckling, he says, “I have a gym down the hall. It’s how I relieve stress.”

   “I thought that’s what sex was for.” I gasp and cover my mouth, wishing I could keep my crazy thoughts in my head where they belong instead of on my tongue. His eyes are heavy, a smirky smirk restraining a laugh. “God, you cannot let me talk when I’m nervous.”

   “If this is what happens when you’re nervous, I’ll make you nervous more often.” His pants come down and my curiosity is answered. Tonight he’s in boxers. When he catches my eyes on his package, I’m thankful I’m wearing waterproof mascara because I immediately go underwater. Screw my makeup. It’s really the only way to keep my mouth in check at this point. I count to five and then pop back up. With my hands covering my boobs, I ask, “You’re really coming in?”

   “Yes, scoot over.”

   Good God Almighty.

 

 

Tracey’s Review

Okay, Suzie Scott, I am in love. As a long-time fan, I was pretty sure that no one could even come close to the place that Jack Dalton (he of The Resistance fame) holds in my heart. But you’ve gone and done it. You’ve written a character, one Ethan Everest, that stormed right in and took up residence, and I couldn’t have enjoyed it more.

So, EVEREST. This is a big book, but I flew through it like it was not. There was no putting this one aside for me, no going back to it at a later time. Once I started, I had to keep going, because Ethan and Singer, well, their story grabbed me and would not let go.

One of the things that I love about Suzie, and that I’m always so interested in, is how very varied her books are, her characters, her storylines, and how each of the different tracks are so very well done. We’ve had rockers, and bartenders (both some of my favorites), and, now, Ethan. Ethan is larger than life, but his story is extremely resonant these days. He’s a self-made man, but he’s made some decisions that have left his life in a holding pattern. When Singer Davis enters his orbit the first time, the world is his oyster. The second time, timing couldn’t be worse, but Ethan isn’t one to hold back, and this is one of the things that I love best about him. He’s an all-in sort of guy, and, this time, he’s leading with his heart.

Singer Davis is a treat. She’s following her dream, staying the course even though the going is tough. Love isn’t even on her radar, and then, Ethan happens. He encourages her, lifts her up, and takes care of her, all while urging her to be the person that she wants to be. And, soon, she’s his.

I loved absolutely everything about this book. The pages flew, and the story is, by turn, intriguing, suspenseful, playful, and passionate. I could not get enough of Ethan and his entourage, and Singer and Mel were the perfect foils for them and for each other.

I have the opportunity to read a lot of books in a year, and I like plenty of them, love several, and adore a few. EVEREST is on my Favorites of 2017 list, because it truly just hit all of the marks for me. Fans of Suzie’s books should definitely be reading it, as well as fans of sweeping epic romance, and romantic suspense. Ethan and Singer will win your heart, of this I am sure.

RELEASE BLIZ.jpg

The British Knight, an all-new contemporary romance by Louise Bay is LIVE!!!

TheBritishKnight.Ebook.jpg

The British Knight by Louise Bay
Release Date: December 5th
Genre: Contemporary Romance

 

When I’m offered the chance to leave New York to live in London for three months, I can’t pack my suitcase fast enough.

As soon as I touch down I’m obsessing over red telephone boxes, palaces and all the black cabs.

But my favorite place is the tube. It’s wall-to-wall hot British men in suits.

When I’m offered a temporary job working for a barrister, I say, sign me up.

On my first commute into work, it’s a total accident when I lose my balance and fall against the most handsome Brit alive. He’s as charming as James Bond and as suave as Mr. Darcy. I want to lick tea from his hard abs and listen to his accent all night long.

Turns out Mr. Handsome is my new boss. And his attitude isn’t as hot as his gorgeous face, broad shoulders and tight ass. He’s brooding, short-tempered and the most arrogant man I’ve ever met.

As we’re fighting, out of nowhere he kisses me. And I’m pretty sure I see fireworks over Big Ben and hear God Save the Queen.

I wasn’t looking for the fairytale but I might have found my knight in shining armor. The problem is he lives an ocean away.

Tracey’s Review

From HOPEFUL, my first Louise Bay book, to THE BRITISH KNIGHT, her most recent, I have loved every single book that she’s written. Louise writes books that just grab me, pull me in and under, and keep me turning pages until THE END. Her characters, her stories, everything, make reading one of her books an absolute pleasure, every time.

Of course I know Violet King. Sister of Max and Scarlett King, we met her in both of their books. Especially in DUKE OF MANHATTAN, Scarlett’s story, it became very clear that Violet had her own story to tell, and that it was going to be fabulous.

Alexander Knightley is the perfect foil for Violet. He has no idea that the lovely girl on the train is about to rock his world in ways that he’d never, in all of his tightly-wound, buttoned-up mind, imagined.

These two. I loved the absolute heck out of them and their story. At first look, they couldn’t be less well-matched, but each of them really needs what the other has to offer. Seeing Violet take back her sense of self, of regaining the strength and the capability that she lost way back when, is lovely. She really comes into her own, and she is fierce. For his part, Alex couldn’t stop the tidal wave that is Violet if he wanted to. And, he does want to, or so he tells himself. But he has some changing to do, too, and Violet is absolutely the key.

Louise continues to delight and engage, and I look forward to each of her books. I’ve loved every book in this set of standalones and THE BRITISH KNIGHT does not disappoint. Fans of Louise will adore it, and new readers will become instant fans, I’d wager. Grab this book, and, while you’re at it, all the others, as well. 4.5 easy and well-earned stars for Violet and her British Knight.

Release Day Launch + Excerpt + Giveaway + Review: No Reservations by Kristen Proby

 

From New York Times bestselling author Kristen Proby, comes a sexy, new contemporary romance novella in her Fusion Series, NO RESERVATIONS, brought to you by 1001 Dark Nights! Grab your copy of this amazing novella today!

 

About NO RESERVATIONS:

New York Times Bestselling author Kristen Proby takes us back to her highly acclaimed Fusion series.

Chase MacKenzie is not the man for Maura Jenkins. A self-proclaimed life-long bachelor, and unapologetic about his distaste for monogamy, a woman would have to be a masochist to want to fall into Chase’s bed.

And Maura is no masochist.

Chase has one strict rule: no strings attached. Which is fine with Maura because she doesn’t even really like Chase. He’s arrogant, cocky, and let’s not forget bossy. But when he aims that crooked grin at her, she goes weak in the knees. Not that she has any intentions of falling for his charms.

Definitely not.

Well, maybe just once…

Excerpt:

“I don’t love blind dates,” I remind my friend Kat for the fourth time since she picked me up at my place twenty minutes ago. “You really didn’t have to set me up with anyone.”

“I think you’ll like him,” she says with a shrug.

“Why are we meeting them there?”

“Because Mac just finished up with work, and having him come home to get me and then go back downtown seemed unproductive.”

I nod and take a deep breath. It’s not that men as a species make me nervous. In fact, I don’t think I’ve ever met a man that gave me butterflies, which I guess is a sad commentary on the state of my love life.

“You do like men, don’t you?” she asks with a raised brow and glances over at me. Kat is one of the most colorful women I know. She has deep red hair, a full sleeve of beautiful tattoos, and the outfits she wears should land her on the cover of a pin-up girl calendar. She’s super pretty.

“Yes,” I reply with a laugh. “I’m into men.”

“Perfect.” Kat smiles and pulls into a parking space at a trendy sushi restaurant near the waterfront. “And there’s no pressure. If you don’t like him, no harm done.”

“True.” I nod and exit the car, meeting her on the sidewalk. “If nothing else, I get to spend some fun time out with you and Mac.”

“Atta girl,” she says with a wink and opens the door for me, following me into the restaurant. I immediately see Kat’s husband, Mac, sitting at a table in the back of the restaurant. His friend’s back is to me, but it looks familiar.

When Mac stands with a smile to kiss his wife like he hasn’t seen her in a month, his companion stands and turns around with a smile, and all I can think is, f*ck.

Tracey’s Review

So, we know that I adore everything written by Kristen Proby. And, her Fusion series? Just, yes. Strong, take no prisoner women with their own kick-butt business, the men that love every single thing about them, a series setting in the Pacific Northwest, how could I not love these books? And, when you pair all of this with the amazing 1001 Dark Nights, how could it be anything short of all kinds of steamy, sexy, and alluring?

While NO RESERVATIONS doesn’t focus on one of the Fusion ladies, per se, both Maura and Chase are just one step removed from the action. Maura is friends with Kat, the genius behind the killer bar at Seduction, Portland’s hottest, most sensual restaurant. Chase is the brother of Mac, Kat’s husband, and wine expert. See how things are going here? Yeah, so when Kat and Mac decide that Maura and Chase need to be introduced, there really is no point in trying to resist. Except that, well, these two already know each other, have sniped/flirted/ignored each other, so that Kat and Mac have their work cut out for them.

Neither Chase nor Maura is looking for a relationship. No, with histories like theirs, they’re happy to keep it short, sweet, and very, very physical. But, it’s Kristen Proby, y’all, so there is no way that this isn’t going to lead to more. And, despite their reservations (see what I did there?), their resistance, their denial, it doesn’t take very long at all for both Maura and Chase to get in deeper than they’d thought possible.

NO RESERVATION has all of the witty repartee, the sass, the steam, of the other Fusion books. But, here, as part of 1001 Dark Nights, Kristen has brought even more of the sizzle, of the spark, of the ‘um, excuse me, has anyone seen my fan?!’ Yep, to say that this little read is anything short of hot and heavy is an understatement.

A must-read for fans of the Fusion series, or, really, anythingthat Kristen has written, or anyone looking for a short, hot, sexy read, NO RESERVATIONS should be on your TBR. And, hey, bring a big glass of something cold, and maybe a fan, because you’re going to need it…

Tracey’s Review

When Samantha Young released HERO waaay back in 2015, I fell in love. This book was one of my favorite reads that year, and I just absolutely adored it. So, when I saw that Sam was going to give us more from that world, that we were finallygoing to get the story for Henry Lexington, Caine Carraway’s bestie, I was over the moon. Y’all, I love this book. This shorter, sweet book and its characters stole my heart, and I couldn’t put it down.

Samantha continue to writes characters that are engaging, witty, sexy, and that find a place in my heart immediately. I’d met Henry in HERO, and he was already one of my favorites. Seeing more of him, the man behind the quick smile and witty repartee, was wonderful, and he really might be one of my favorite bbfs to date.

Nadia’s backstory is absorbing. There’s this allusion to a past (we all have them, don’t we?) throughout, and finding out more about it as the story unfolds makes clear why she is the way that she is. I actually really enjoy her, because she’s got all of the sass and spunk that I’ve come to expect in one of Samantha’s heroines.

You don’t have to have read HERO to enjoy VILLAIN, but it’s nice to have the background. It was a treat getting to spend more time with Caine and Alexa from the first book, and the other supporting characters, even Henry’s mother, were a the perfect mix for the story. An easy 4.5 stars for VILLAIN. I’d be more than happy to see even more of these folks, and couldn’t be happier to recommend both this book and the first.
