Lots of romance books are about people desiring one another but not actually being together. Can I choose a television couple? I'd take Boyd and Ava Crowder from Justified. Not only they're tremendous together, but there's a tragic, Shakespearean edge to their romance.(less)

Complete Review of Don DeLillo's Underworld

"What you discover throughout Underworld is that the meek and mild-mannered executive has a violent, passionate nature he learned to control for his own survival. Nick Shay feels estranged from himself like many of us adults do. That interests beyond his control have taken possession of his personality in exchange for financial comfort and a vague sense of patriotic purpose."

Brittany McCann I would like to extend an invitation to you to join my goodreads group. My goal is to find an enjoyable place to visit to find all of the things you want in a group. We have a lot of group and buddy read options and are constantly adding more read & review opportunities, if you enjoy challenges and posting of free ebooks, as well as author participated discussions, then come on over to For Love of A Book, where every group matter has the power to help shape the group into the best it can be.

Hey, thanks for dropping in. To be honest, I would be the last person to give you a good recommendation of MMA fiction. I've got way too deep in the sport, so I find all the fictions I read extremely corny. There's some good boxing stories though. The best MMA book I've ever read, I think is GOT FIGHT? by Forrest Griffin. It's kind of a memoir. Gives you a good sense of what high level mma fighters are like.

Emma Stocker Thanks for the recommendation looks great, strangely enough i was going to ask if you could recommend any particular books on mma(i saw it listed in your interests).I have just started watching it the last two months and am really getting into it(ended up watching all of ufc 190 including the prelims,it was a long night : )I have a few on my fight shelf on my profile.Thanks again.
