Publisher: Addictive Publishing
Enemies or lovers? Liam, a successful young lawyer, is allergic to love. Heâs always between business trips and, devastated by a dark secret, he has put a lock on his heart. Thatâs the way he likes it. But when he crosses paths with Zoe, all his principles fly out the window. Zoe is the opposite of his usual conquests: natural, funny, impetuous... and she has no plans to make room in her life for a man. *** I watch her delicate hands work over my torso, becoming intoxicated by her scent rising to meet me from her neck. âIâm so sorry,â she insists, now scrubbing the fabric with concentration, taking breaks to dab her forehead with her arm. Sheâs damaging my designer shirt. Instead of pointing that out to her, I observe her every movement. I surprise her a few times as she nibbles her thumb. A habit that reveals how nervous she actually is. âIâll pay for the dry cleaning, of course. And free coffee for a week.â I don't reply. I resist the temptation to run my hand through her long, silky hair. I find her beautiful: her fragility, embarrassment, simplicity. âA month?â she offers, obviously worried by my silence. âItâs fine for the coffee. A week and weâre even,â I reassure her. "For the dry cleaning, I'll take care of it. Donât worry about the clothes. It could happen to anyone.â She stops and looks at me, smiling, relieved by my pacifist reaction. âI think your shirt is ruined,â she announces, nibbling her lower lip. âYeah, I think youâre right about that!â I agree, laughing. Iâm speechless when she starts working on my pants, kneeling down between my legs. Is this a joke? I thought this kind of thing only happened in movies!
Except thereâs nothing funny about the position. On the contrary. The pressure sheâs putting on my crotch awakens sensations in my entire body. My imagination becomes quickly uncontrollable. I want her. Forbidden thoughts start to creep into my mind. To touch her. Caress her. Kiss her. She suddenly stops, as if she had heard my inappropriate thoughts. Time stands still for a second, and the noise of the cafĂ© customers dies down. Here we are, the two of us, completely isolated from the rest of the world. *** After the success of Challenge Me, Avril Rose is back with a funny and touching romance told by two distinct voices.

Those are the very best kind and FURIOUS RUSH was that for me."--Southern Belle Book Blog "I WAS FLOATING IN FEELS THE WHOLE STORY.

Life and a Half
Author: Sony Lab'Ou Tansi, Alison Dundy
Publisher: Indiana University Press
Listed as one of the 100 best books on Africa, Life and a Half was Sony Labou Tansi's response to the death of close friends during a bloody military and political crackdown in Congo. The novel takes place in an imaginary African country run by the latest in a series of cannibalistic dictators who has captured Martial, the leader of the opposition, and his family. Though shot, knifed, butchered, and bled, Martial's spirit lives on to guide his followers in their fight against the dictators. Facing censorship, Tansi insisted that his book was a fable and that if he were ever given the opportunity to write about real events, he would be much more direct rather than follow the torturous paths of a novel. This crisp translation by Alison Dundy maintains the fast-paced action and bitingly satiric tone of the original.
