This bad boy is about to get played…
After getting her heart broken by a player again, Whitney Porter is done with men. She's focusing on her future career and her first assignment at the college newspaper: Posing as a sports writer for an exposé on the extra perks jocks receive. But Hudson Decker, the bad boy of the hockey team, is about to test her resolve. To keep herself from breaking her no-sex rule with the temptingly tattooed athlete, she decides to use him for a side project: Anatomy of a Player, to help Whitney—and women everywhere—spot a player, learn what makes him tick, and how to avoid falling for one.

With his life spiraling out of control, Hudson Decker's looking for a distraction. When his teammates bet him that he can't land the gorgeous but prickly new reporter, he accepts the challenge, boasting he'll have her in bed by the end of the semester. But Whitney is so much more than Hudson expected, and soon enough, he's in too deep. The last thing he needs is another complication, but staying away isn't an option. One thing's for certain: this girl totally throws him off his game.


With a sigh, I gave in.  As soon as we were in the middle of the floor, he drew me close, so close I could feel the muscles in his torso, and I knew I should've fought harder.  But the way he wrapped his arms around me, his hands a mere inch away from too low on my back, made it even harder to fight--hard to do anything but sway with him.

I loved Hudson!

The Healing Power of Sugar (The Ghost Bird, #9)From USA TODAY Bestselling Author, C. L. Stone, read The Healing Power of Sugar, the ninth book in The Academy Ghost Bird Series.

It’s been a week since Sang has attended any classes at Ashley Waters, and since then, everything has changed. Her school schedule has been turned upside down, and now, thanks to her absences, the school counselor, Ms. Wright, has suspended her. The fear of school officials getting further involved and looking to contact her parents has Sang and the boys forced into their best behavior. It seems that the once perfect student, Sang Sorenson, is now one of the school’s worst, and without explanation, because she needs to keep her lips tightly sealed. Academy secrets are becoming hazardous to keep.

The more that Kota, Victor, Silas, Nathan, Gabriel, Luke and North try to protect her, the more inevitable her downfall seems to be. They do their best to make sure Sang stays in school and when she returns to classes, try to help her get back on the straight and narrow—she can’t afford to screw up anymore.

But then fate deals out a setback that cripples the whole team, and they need to make a move, it turns into a risky one. There’s no way to predict the outcome. If they fail, the boys may lose the job they were sent to do, and worse, they may even lose Sang.

Everything gets more difficult when it’s revealed there might be a traitor amidst the group. Desperate to fix things, Sang needs to stop the group from spilling secrets and find out the truth.

And why all fingers seem to be pointing to Luke.

The Academy, Magnanimous


I tilted my head and shrugged, pretending I was better than I really felt. "New people and a new place," I said. "There's been a few surprises today already. I'm sorry if I'm acting weird." 
"You're acting like Sang Sorenson, which is exactly how you're supposed to be." He winked at me and squeezed my fingers between his. "I like you the way you are. An introvert. A bit shy. But once we're by ourselves, you open up. I like that. You're a little flower, pookie. You bloom when I'm around, which makes me want to be around you more."

I FINALLY finished reading this book! I was totally stalling because I knew after I reached the end, there'd be nothing more but to wait for the tenth book to release. But then I was in the mood for some Ghost Bird, and... well, here we are. With some Dr. Sean Green love. He's one of my favorites. (That is such a trick statement. I have more than one favorite. Like, Mr. Blackbourne. And North. And...) Love him, and this book!
