Release Day - Riggs

 

Riggs

(Arizona Vengeance, Book #11)

Sawyer Bennett

Release Date: October 26, 2021

 

 

 

 

Synopsis:

 

 Known as the team loner, Riggs Nadeau gives his all on the ice, but nothing extra off it. A beautiful stranger is about to cause chaos in his very structured world.

 

As a professional hockey player, people think I live a charmed life. On the surface, I do. But they don’t know the horrors of my childhood, or the real reason that I have custody of my seventeen - year - old sister, Janelle. And that’s exactly the way I like it. They may think I’m a prick because I don’t like to share, but that’s fine. They don’t know me, and they don’t need to.

 

In an effort to help Janelle get settled in Phoenix and stay out of trouble at school, I set her up with a job at Clarke’s Corner, the local bookstore owned by the girlfriend of a teammate. It’s there that she makes friends with Veronica Woodley, the extremely annoying, arrogant, money - hungry divorcee who I don’t want anywhere near my sister. Janelle insists I’m completely wrong about Veronica, but I refuse to accept that. I have to keep reminding mysel f that that the gorgeous blond with legs for days is off limits.

 

Through a series of events, I start to see Veronica for what she really is — an amazing woman who has survived her own hell to come out even stronger. I have to admit, we’re more alik e than not and the attraction between us burns hot.

 

Maybe I was all wrong about my ability to love and commit, but when the past comes back to haunt me, can I be the man that Veronica, and Janelle, deserve?

Riggs (Arizona Vengeance #11)Riggs by Sawyer Bennett
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This is book #11 in the Arizona Vengeance series. This book can be read as a standalone novel. For reader understanding, and to avoid spoilers, I recommend reading this series in order.

Riggs is just trying to right by his kid sister. The situation is rocky, as she is adjusting to living with him and a new location. Only with his career, he is not often home. Add to this his burning attraction to the woman so generous with her time and he is slowly going crazy.

Veronica has enjoyed training the new hire to work at her best friend's bookstore. What she did not count on was being attracted to her older brother. He is such a typical hot jock. Well a hot jock who sets her on fire.

This story was such a delight to read. While I absorbed the book almost whole, I found the characters were exciting and had so much depth to them. The pace moved along well, and the heat between the main characters was off the charts. This is a great addition to the series. Cannot wait for the next installment to come out!

Out
If This Gets Out - Cale Dietrich,Sophie Gonzales

Ruben is part of a boy band that is hotter than ever.  They are on tour and headed to Europe.  He likes his life, well most of it.  He just wishes he could say what he wants to say.

 

Zach is enjoying the life the bet he can.  So what if they keep turning him down for the most important thing he wants? He is on top of the world.  Or is he?

 

These close friends have to navigate falling for one another amid the crazy life of the music biz.  Being best friends is great, but sometimes you want more. When they reach for each other it seems to soothe the aches. But sometimes.... you have to rock the boat.  These boys are turning to men and it is a wild ride!  I give this a 4/5 Kitty's Paws UP!

In an interview with Sunday Times : "A Beautiful Mind", Nataša explains her unusual use of the word "mindfulness", she calls it "#European #mindfulness".

Q. You explore the Age of Enlightenment, and ‘Western’ ancient Greek philosophers. Can you talk about your use of the Eastern concept of ‘mindfulness’ in this context? A: "There are a number of ‘instant happiness’ gurus out there, I do not believe in a ‘get rich in a day’ message, but I do believe that if we learn how to listen to our soul, we will be able to live our highest potential. We live in a rapidly changing world. When I was born in Belgrade in 1968, at the time of no TV or internet, the population on the planet was three billion. Now they say it is seven billion. The changes I have seen during my lifetime are huge. Emotionally, mentally and physically, we have to adopt different behavior patterns, not just to survive, but to thrive without abusing other social groups or animals or endangering planet Earth. The next stage, the stage of cultural life, is beyond the knowledge of more than 90 per cent of the population. Having a percentage of the population that neither collects objects nor watches TV, nor reads newspapers, that is still capable of thinking, un-hypnotized, to appreciate art, or dance or sing, and is able to think creatively, is a part of my research fascination."

The growing breach between the rich and poor countries has not been met with the response of an equivalent flow of international solidarity. Global ecological and economic interdependence requires effective international cooperation for appropriate management. The inadequate cooperation of all countries is responsible for the continuing rivalries and inequities in the global economic and social system. Using AoL Mindfulness as a process, a philosophy and a methodological framework for the realization of collaborative and sustainable projects, we facilitate diversity, creativity and team-work around the Globe. The idea is to enlighten collective intelligence and unleash our creative genius working with many transformative projects and organisations across the world...

 

Why European Mindfulness?

"Variety of religious and spiritual movements, such as Yoga, or the New Thought use “mindfulness” for spiritual growth and development. Such an ancient concept in Europe, an innate quality known in Ancient Greece as “Pure Reason” or with Egyptians as “heart-mind” or “Intelligence of the Heart” going back to Ancient Egyptian Babylon’s philosophy, or Ancient Greek Plato’s Soul’s Eye that is purified “for it is by it alone that we contemplate the truth.”, the naming of God’s idea of Pythagoras Music of the Spheres., the mystical practices of Balkan’s Slavs, or Ancient Maltese or Cyprus, or Olimp temple worshipping rituals."

 

In her NET TV Interview Nataša Pantović explains how from the point of view of psychology, meditation induces altered states of consciousness.

Zapowiedź: PocketBook Touch HD 3 jako pierwszy otrzyma obsługę PILOTA do zmiany stron

PocketBook testuje obecnie w swoich czytnikach oprogramowanie wewnętrzne oznaczone numerem 6.5 w wersji beta. Według mojego rozeznania, trwają zaawansowane testy w przypadku m.in. InkPada 3 Pro. Jednak przedstawiciel firmy PocketBook przekazał ostatnio na jednym z forów ciekawą informację na temat tego, czego się możemy spodziewać wraz ze spodziewaną aktualizacją dla PocketBooka Touch HD 3. Otóż pochwalił się, że „Blootooth-Fernbedienung wird ab der Version 6.5 zuerst bei Touch HD 3, dann auf weiteren Geräten unterstützt”. W wolnym tłumaczeniu oznacza to wprowadzenie obsługi zdalnego pilota łączącego się z czytnikiem przez Bluetooth i służącego do zmiany stron. Tego typu funkcjonalność otrzyma najpierw ten właśnie model, a później także inne, zapewne raczej nowsze PocketBooki. Na razie nic nie wiadomo na temat wprowadzenia na rynek firmowego pilota zmiany stron.

Tego typu rozwiązania nie są czymś niezwykłym w świecie czytników, choć wciąż to bardzo rzadko spotykane udogodnienie. Sam kiedyś szukałem podobnego pilota dla osoby mającej problem z utrzymaniem czytnika w ręku. Niewielki pilot, który umożliwia zdalną zmianę stron może być ciekawym dodatkiem, szczególnie dla takich właśnie osób. Dwa lata temu pisałem nawet o koreańskich czytnikach Crema, gdzie od kilku lat pilot jest standardowym akcesorium (więcej w tekście „Crema Carta G – nowy KOREAŃSKI czytnik z fizycznymi przyciskami i PILOTEM”). Podobny dodatek ma w ofercie także Onyx Books (w cenie ok. 26 USD). Koreańskie czytniki są u nas nieosiągalne, ale PocketBooki i owszem. Moim zdaniem taki pilot to fajny pomysł! Czekam więc z niecierpliwością na pojawienie się możliwości zdalnej zmiany stron. Ciekaw jestem, czy w praktyce mi się to sprawdzi.

 

P.S.

Czytniki marki można kupić np. w Amazonie. Więcej szczegółów we wpisie "Czytniki PocketBook trochę TANIEJ w Amazonie niż u konkurencji".
