I've experienced a lot the last few years and I have a lot to share. So I hope that you'll take a moment to sit back, relax and enjoy the words I've put together for you in this book. I think you'll find I've left no stone unturned, no door unopened, no window unbroken, no rug unvacuumed, no ivories untickled. What I'm saying is, let us begin, shall we?

Swoon-worthy guys; twisting story; crackling sexual tension. CAGE With NFL scouts watching my every move, the last thing I should be thinking about is Quinton Toro, my awkwardly sexy, genius tutor who makes me think naughty thoughts. I might fantasize about everything about him at night, but I’ve worked too hard for too long to slip up now. But if it came down to having him or a career in the NFL, which would I choose? The answer should be obvious, right? Then why can’t I get the way he looks at me out of my mind? I might be in trouble. QUINTON The problem with falling in love for the first time is that it makes you do crazy things like think you have a shot with the drop-dead gorgeous quarterback, who is not only focused on going pro, but has a girlfriend. He is the one who insists we spend time together. That’s got to mean he likes me, doesn’t it? Why can’t I figure this out? And, how is he going to feel when he learns how much trouble comes with being with me? The only thing I can hope is that we can figure out a way to be together. But could love overcome all of that? Note: This book is a part of the author's 'Love is Love Collection', meaning that it is available as a Male/Male romance in 'Serious Trouble', a spicy Male/Female romance in 'My Tutor', and a wholesome Male/Female romance in 'Going Long'.

Last year, Wyatt Palmer was the hero of middle school, having foiled a plot against the president of the United States. But now he and his friends are in Coral Cove High School -- home of the Fighting Conchs -- and Wyatt is no longer a hero: He's just another undersized freshman, hoping to fit in, or at least not be unpopular. Things start to go wrong when Matt Diaz, who is Wyatt's best friend but also unfortunately an idiot, decides to bring his pet ferret, Frank, to school. Through an unfortunate series of events Frank ends up in the hands of the Bevin brothers, who are the most popular boys at Coral Cove High, but are also, as Matt soon discovers, the nastiest. When Wyatt and Matt try to get Frank back, they concoct a plan to attend a party for the cool clique at the Bevin's waterfront mansion and stumble onto the Bevin family's dark and deadly secret. That's when Wyatt learns that some things are worse than being unpopular in high school. MUCH worse.

“I would be rather amused if I ended up on the back of a book, that’s for sure.” —Rhys Davis Just Kidding does double-duty as a joke book and an art book with illustrations that can be brought to life with colour, much like an adult colouring book. Full of lame puns and dad jokes, alongside surprisingly beautiful cartoons, this book is the result of the author’s efforts to curate humour for others’ enjoyment, collected from strangers he met through his travels. From millennials and new dads to depressed people and old dads, Just Kidding will interest anyone with an appreciation for a sterling pirate joke or inappropriate bursts of sarcasm. The main point of tension? Why the chicken crossed the road.
