Fortunately, Evan meets Sammy -- someone whose legendary disasters with females eclipse even his own. To reverse their fortunes, they recruit their friends -- Trevor, Yi, and Carlos -- to form a group of five guys who take on Manhattan in pursuit of dates, sex, and adventure.

When Evan, a closet writer, falls desperately in love with a Hollywood starlet, he schemes to meet her by writing a novel that will sweep her off her feet. Sammy knows nothing about publishing but is confident of one thing: Evan's book should have the word "sex" in the title.

With musings about life, relationships, and human psychology, this quintessential New York story about the search for happiness follows five men on their comical paths to trouble, self-discovery, and love.

What is this about?At 17 years old, Lorelei Starke was America's hope for gymnastic gold. A car crash cost her full use of her leg, a damaged voice and years of surgeries and physical therapy. Because of the hounding of the media, pity and sympathy of friends and family, she retreated to the country and her aunt's house to recover, to build a new life for herself. Financially secure, challenged by her career in computer game design, she was content. If she longed for more, no one but she knew.
Alex Kane, Atlanta computer software executive, had pursued personal success with single minded determination. He had taken on all comers in a highly competitive field and won. He was at the top of his game and he wasn't ready to even take a vacation until a physical exam highlighted what he was doing to his body. This was one battle he couldn't afford to lose and it was the only battle he wanted to deny.
A wrong turn, a rundown house, and a lost dog brought the woman out of the fog, a woman who didn't speak. Her daily ride, a ritual that was as necessary as breathing was interrupted by curses and a man.
Alex didn't fit in her world. Lorelei couldn't live in his. Was living for the moment all that was possible?

What is this about?� Two weeks ago, fifteen-year old Torey Kilroy’s only cares in life were surfing and fitting in with the cool kids. All that changed one morning while sitting on his shortboard fifty yards off the California coastline in unnaturally foggy and flat surf. It was there where he befriended a mysterious surfer named Donovan who has the uncanny ability to manipulate water and create waves at will. He quickly proposes a remarkable deal that in exchange for teaching him how to create his own killer waves using an elemental magic called dynamism, Torey must help him find and capture a mermaid who now lives on land in human form, a mermaid that betrayed Donovan’s love and tricked him into serving her term in an underwater hell. Torey shook on the deal knowing full well that mermaids don’t exist so he had nothing to lose, right?
Lesson #1: Never kiss a stinking mermaid.

ISBN 10: 1781322833
ISBN 13: 9781781322833
What kind of resource: Contemporary Fiction, Romance, Women's Fiction.
What is it about? It is a love story and a quest for romance, with the story of the making of a writer running alongside:
"Johari's Window" is a love letter, a game and a fictional romance. Suzy sets her sights on the erudite, mercurial Dr Raven, who has other plans.
Their encounter is a turning point - her journey a Dantesque passage, through trials and tribulations. She discovers herself on this journey.
As we enter Suzy's memories, directly created from the fragments of "herstory," myths, legends and pop culture, we share her soul-searching voyage of discovery.
Suzy transports us to an exotic country, and the "undiscovered" emergent landscape of a writer in the making, who finds the love and romance she seeks, in unexpected, fulfilling ways.
