Becky Jordan has had it with relationships. From now on her time and dedication won't be lavished on her latest Mr. Wrong-or, worse, Mr. Hell-"No "-just the dream travel job which has unexpectedly leapt into her lap. Finally, life is looking great. Unfortunately, not as great as her sizzling-hot, take-charge new boss. Matt Frobisher is everything she doesn't want him to be, but if anyone thinks she'll risk her career on a workplace fling they can think again. No amount of Superman behaviour from him will make her roll over and play Lois. At least, that's what her head says. Her heart, however, doesn't do logical. In desperation she finds herself a Mr. Distraction, one with no strings and plenty of appeal. But Mr. Distraction also comes with unforeseen complications. Kryptonite complications, like Becky's sister. And when "she" shows up there's only one sure thing: not even Superman can prevent the Disaster Fest that's about to blow Becky's life apart. (Contains one guy determined to win the girl, one girl determined not to be won, and plenty of heat in the middle.)

In the first book of Lauren Barnholdt's captivating The Moment of Truth series, Lyla discovers that trusting her head might be easy but trusting her heart is a whole other matter. Lyla McAfee had all but forgotten the email that she wrote to herself freshman year and scheduled to be delivered right before graduation—the one promising that she'd learn to trust by the end of senior year. But when she receives it the first morning of her senior trip to Florida, her life is sent into a tailspin. Soon she's questioning her seemingly perfect relationship with her boyfriend, Derrick, her attraction to the school player, Beckett, and whether ending her friendship with Aven and Quinn, her former BFFs, was one of the biggest mistakes of her life. Each book in this trilogy is told from the perspective of a different girl—Lyla, Aven, and Quinn—former best friends who, back in freshman year, wrote emails to their future selves about the one thing they hope to accomplish before they graduate. Over the course of the series, each girl will learn about life, love, and the truth about the fight that ended their perfect friendship.

How to warm up to the clients that stop you cold. Have you experienced the anger, fear, doubt, and frustration that most clinicians feel but rarely put words to? Have you ever overreacted to a client in session or found yourself overwhelmed by the work with that client in your caseload? Are you looking for tools to manage your most “difficult” clients? Chances are, you’re like all other clinicians: At times you play “tug-of-war” with those in your care. The Heat of the Moment in Treatment is for clinicians looking to explore, reassess, and transform the way they treat their most difficult clients. With carefully designed mindfulness-based exercises, self-assessments, and skill development activities, this workbook helps clinicians understand their own role in therapeutic interactions, as well as how to proactively respond to tough client behavior in ways that improve the prospects for successful treatment. Author Mitch Abblett acts as a sensitive, expert guide, laying out a roadmap for the toughest of clinical encounters that almost all therapists face, whether seasoned or just starting out. His use of relatable metaphors, rhetorical questions, and stories from his own experience allows readers to reflect upon their own psychotherapy practice without feeling like there is one right way to deal with challenging clients. The Heat of the Moment in Treatment will help clinicians move beyond assumptions and reactive impulses to their “difficult” clients. Readers will gain proactive clinical leadership skills, while learning how to expand mindful awareness of self and others to access compassion and empathy for any client—even when the “heat” of moment-to-moment interaction in session is hard to tolerate.

What's a lie among friends? It's murder--in this riveting thriller by Viveca Sten, bestselling author of Tonight You're Dead... It's Midsummer's Eve, the celebration of the longest day of the year, and on Sandhamn it's the longest party of the year. But the fun comes to a dead halt when a young reveler is murdered, a teenage girl is found drugged and dazed on the beach, and other young women vanish. So far, what links the victims is a mystery. For Nora Linde and her new boyfriend, Jonas Sköld, the crimes are personal: one of the missing girls is Wilma, Jonas's daughter. And her disappearance could test Nora and Jonas's relationship in ways they never expected. Thrust into the investigation, they soon discover that it's more than a case of bad blood between friends. But the truth, which has receded into a haze of carousing, drugs, and liquor, is getting harder to see. If Nora and Jonas are going to find out what happened to Wilma, they'd better do it fast--before the ebbing tides sweep away all the terrible secrets of that night on Sandhamn Island.

Shawn's not a submissive and he doesn't need to be rescued from doing exactly what he wants. Now all he has to do is find a way to make Brett believe it. Twenty-one, naturally submissive and absolutely stunning, Shawn is obviously out of his depth at a hotel catering to serious dominants. As Shawn's boss, Brett knows it's his duty to step in and rescue the younger man - especially since he's been keeping his eye on Shawn for months, waiting for just the right moment to make the younger man aware of his latent submissive desires. He's not about to let Shawn fall into the hands of another dominant. Shawn might have a huge crush on his boss, but that doesn't mean the guy has a right to "rescue" him from doing exactly what he wants, or to warn every interested dominant away from him. Shawn might enjoy rough sex with dominant men, but he's no submissive, and he can look after himself. He's not about to forget that, just because Brett makes him wonder if submitting to him could be different to submitting to any other man he's ever met.
