Zack Hayes was taught that hard work pays off. He lives by that adage, working a part-time job, playing football and taking a full load of courses in the hope that his parents can stop working themselves to the bone. <br /><br />However, when things start to go wrong, Zack begins to believe that when you come from nothing, working hard doesn’t get you anywhere. <br /><br />Emma Wilson has spent her whole life hiding in the shadows because she isn’t who her parents wanted her to be—who her father wanted her to be. <br /><br />She loses herself in her studies and in the piles of romance books she devours. It isn’t until her roommate begins dating a football player that the worlds she’s worked so hard to separate inevitably collide.

At the end of Luck, we saw Jules and Pete settling into a new life at Alachua Eventing Co-op, where Jules will be the manager and head riding instructor. It’s not exactly what she expected out of her career, but things are going fine, and it’s better than living in a horse trailer, right?<br /><br />The cracks begin to show as the eventing season winds up and summer sets in across Florida. Pete’s new horse has an overbearing owner who is pressuring him into pushing the horse too fast. Dynamo suddenly seems to be showing his age on the cross-country course. And how on earth is Jules supposed to manage a barn, a dozen kids, and her own competition schedule?<br /><br />She’ll need some help from old friends — and maybe some old enemies, too — but Jules is going to keep moving forward, no matter what. From the pine plantations of north Florida to the skyscraper shadows of the Central Park Horse Show, Forward is all about chasing dreams, wherever they may lead.

Customer Reviews
Along with Sun Tzu's The Art of War, The Book of Five Rings is considered to be one of the most insightful texts on the subtle arts of confrontation and victory to emerge from Asia. Composed in 1643 by the famed duelist and undefeated samurai Miyamoto Musashi, The Book of Five Rings analyzes the process of struggle and mastery over conflict that underlies every level of human interaction. For Musashi, the way of the martial arts was a mastery of the mind rather than simply technical prowess—and it is this path to mastery that is the core teaching in The Book of Five Rings. This brilliant manifesto is written not only for martial artists but for anyone who wants to apply the timeless principles of this text to their life.

<h2>She's a key witness in hiding. He's a hockey player in the room next door. Falling in love would be a dangerous move...but once he learns the truth, how can they resist?</h2><br /><br />Christiana's friend is dead…and she knows who did it. Now a key witness in a murder trial, she’s been hidden away in the one place no one will think to look for her: Eton Preparatory School for Boys.<br /><br />It’s a stupid move. Insane. But she doesn’t have a choice.<br />Instead of completing her senior year with the popular crowd, she’s being forced to hide in a school with exactly zero XX chromosomes. Even worse, she’s somehow supposed to act like the Neanderthals walking the halls.<br /><br />But then she meets the guys next door—the smoking-hot ones. And it doesn’t help that one in particular could unravel her in a heartbeat…and potentially blow her cover. How’s she supposed to resist Trey Calloway, the star hockey player who never backs down from a fight…and who never takes no for an answer?<br /><br />She’s supposed to be focused on staying safe, not on the guy who’s getting under her skin. <br />Her chilling past isn’t going to suddenly disappear.<br />In fact, it might just be catching up with her.<br /><br /><br /><b><i>If you're looking for a fast-paced thrill ride packed with drama, suspense, romance and unexpected twists, then See No Evil is just the book for you.</i></b> <br /><br /><b><u>Purchase your copy and escape into a forbidden romance like no other.</b></u> <br /><br /><br /><i>ALSO AVAILABLE: <br />Speak No Evil<br />Hear No Evil<br />
