I don’t do boyfriends. Or dating. Or random hookups.<br /><br />Not when fictional men do it so much better, and not when my heart has been through the wringer. So when retired MMA fighter Matt Haywood crashes into my life, I’m not impressed. Quite the opposite actually. I avoid him at all costs.<br /><br />At least, I try. <br /><br />His persistence wears me down and it’s me who ends up wandering into his gym looking for more. I have to admit he’s nothing like I assumed. He’s witty and smart. His physical condition could win awards. Problem is, somewhere between rolling around on the mats together, I let down my guard.<br /><br />I thought I was over relationships. That I’d never risk my heart again. But he’s out to prove it’s never too late for a comeback.

<b>A fascinating behind-the-scenes look at <i>Friends</i>, published for the twenty-fifth anniversary of the show's premiere. <i>Howyoudoin’?</i></b><br /><br /> In September 1994, six friends sat down in their favorite coffee shop and began bantering about sex, relationships, jobs, and just about everything else. A quarter of a century later, new fans are still finding their way into the lives of Rachel, Ross, Joey, Chandler, Monica, and Phoebe, and thanks to the show’s immensely talented creators, its intimate understanding of its youthful audience, and its reign during network television’s last moment of dominance, <i>Friends</i> has become the most influential and beloved show of its era. <i>Friends</i> has never gone on a break, and this is the story of how it all happened.<br /><br /> Noted pop culture historian Saul Austerlitz utilizes exclusive interviews with creators David Crane and Marta Kauffman, executive producer Kevin Bright, director James Burrows, and many other producers, writers, and cast members to tell the story of <i>Friends</i>’ creation, its remarkable decade-long run, and its astonishing Netflix-fueled afterlife. Readers will go behind the scenes to hear from the people who were present as the show was developed and cast, written and filmed. There will be talk of trivia contests, prom videos, trips to London, Super Bowls, lesbian weddings, wildly popular hairstyles, superstar cameos, mad dashes to the airport, and million-dollar contracts. They’ll also discover surprising details—that Monica and Joey were the show’s original romantic couple, how Danielle Steel probably saved Jennifer Aniston’s career, and why <i>Friends</i> is still so popular that if it was a new show, its over-the-air broadcast reruns would be the ninth-highest-rated program on TV.  <br />  <br /> The show that defined the 1990s has a legacy that has endured beyond wildest expectations. And in this hilarious, informative, and entertaining book, readers will now understand why.

Solid State: The Story of "Abbey Road" and the End of the Beatles

<p>Acclaimed Beatles historian Kenneth Womack offers the most definitive account yet of the writing, recording, mixing, and reception of<i> Abbey Road.</i></p><p>In February 1969, the Beatles began working on what became their final album together. Abbey Road introduced a number of new techniques and technologies to the Beatles' sound, and included "Come Together," "Something," and "Here Comes the Sun," which all emerged as classics. </p><p>Womack's colorful retelling of how this landmark album was written and recorded is a treat for fans of the Beatles. <i>Solid State</i> takes readers back to 1969 and into EMI's Abbey Road Studio, which boasted an advanced solid state transistor mixing desk. Womack focuses on the dynamics between John, Paul, George, Ringo, and producer George Martin and his team of engineers, who set aside (for the most part) the tensions and conflicts that had arisen on previous albums to create a work with an innovative (and, among some fans and critics, controversial) studio-bound sound that prominently included the new Moog synthesizer, among other novelties. </p><p>As Womack shows, <i>Abbey Road </i>was the culmination of the instrumental skills, recording equipment, and artistic vision that the band and George Martin had developed since their early days in the same studio seven years earlier. A testament to the group's creativity and their producer's ingenuity, <i>Solid</i> <i>State is required reading for all fans of the Beatles and the history of rock 'n' roll.</i></p>

In honor of the ten-year anniversary of<i> The Heroin Diaries</i>, Nikki Sixx’s definitive and bestselling memoir on drug addiction is reissued with exclusive new content. This shocking, gripping, and at times darkly hilarious memoir explores Nikki’s yearlong war with a vicious heroin addiction. Now more than ever, with opioid addiction ravaging our country and rising by twenty percent in the past year alone, Nikki’s story of both his descent into drug-addled decay and subsequent recovery and transition into a rehabilitation advocate are now more relevant than ever.<br /><br />When Mötley Crüe was at the height of its fame, there wasn’t any drug Nikki Sixx wouldn’t do. He spent days—sometimes alone, sometimes with other addicts, friends, and lovers—in a coke- and heroin-fueled daze.<br /> <br />The highs were high, and Nikki’s journal entries reveal some euphoria and joy. But the lows were lower, often ending with Nikki in his closet, surrounded by drug paraphernalia and wrapped in paranoid delusions.<br /> <br />Here, Nikki shares the diary entries—some poetic, some scatterbrained, some bizarre—of those dark times. Joining him are Tommy Lee, Vince Neil, Mick Mars, Slash, Rick Nielsen, Bob Rock, and a host of ex-managers, ex-lovers, and more.<br /> <br />Brutally honest, utterly riveting, and surprisingly moving,<i> The Heroin Diaries </i>follows Nikki during the year he plunged to rock bottom—and his courageous decision to pick himself up and start living again.

But with his rejection of every guy Sophie meets, she begins to wonder if he's got an ulterior motive. And anyway, why does she always have so much more fun with Jason than with the guys she's actually trying to date?<br /><br /><b>While desperately seeking her "happy for now," could Sophie stumble into her "happily ever after?"</b><br /><br /><i>No More Bad Dates</i> is a fun, heart-warming enemies to lovers rom com for fans of Sophie Kinsella, Helen Fielding, Lindsey Kelk, and TV shows like <i>Jane the Virgin</i>. <br /><i>High Tea</i> is a spin-off of Kate O'Keeffe's bestselling <i>Cozy Cottage Café</i> series.
