People always say things like that and you never really believe them, but it’s the truth. One day, you think you have your life all figured out and then a single event starts a chain reaction you can’t seem to stop… Zane Tishler and Lili Cortez fit in perfectly with the party crowd of Sin City locals. They’ve spent two years honing a finely tuned system to bag and tag tourists with no strings attached. Sex is just sex, after all. But when dangerous shadows from the past start to reappear, things get complicated. Best friends and roommates, they never expected to find what they’d both been searching for in each other, but sometimes those who know us best forgive our sins the easiest. Through shootings, fires, and a multitude of secrets and lies, can they both survive? Even if they do, can their love? Add to your TBR List: Goodreads Pre-Order Your Copy Now for $0.99 Today! Amazon | Barnes and Noble | Kobo | iTunes Excerpt: I stared as Lili moved with almost mechanical motions, making it seem like she was pausing for small fractions of a second between movements. When she pulled this off perfectly, the sound of the crowd around us surged. I was completely entranced as she continued dancing and her eyes landed on mine. She moved to me and pulled me to her before spinning to press her ass against me again. I wrapped my arms around her waist, resting both my palms flat along her stomach and abdomen as I bent my knees to lower myself while we swayed together. She was so close I could see the beads of sweat running down her neck, the tiny hairs curling along her hairline in an unruly fashion. I felt the bare skin of her stomach when her shirt rose and my fingers slid underneath, tugging her even closer. She threw her head back and I gripped her hips. Turning her to face me, I lifted her up, my fingers on her backside as she used the position to move against me. Wrapping her legs around my waist, she grabbed the back of my hair with both hands, her nails grazing my scalp. I groaned and pressed my lips to hers again without another coherent thought. The crowd went crazy when the song ended and Lili blinked, seeming stunned as she looked around. I glanced up from her to a sea of camera phones that no doubt captured Lizzie's embarrassing ass stomping by Lili. I grinned at her and let her slide slowly down my body but she looked past me. "And it's EX-wife, you… repulsive tramp!" Lili stuttered as she spat the words. With an irritated huff, she moved quickly through the crowd. I could barely see the top of her head as she passed through the door toward the street. I glanced at the table to see Tish and Kas were already moving that way so I turned to follow Lili. "Zane!" Lizzie whined, grabbing my arm. Half an hour ago, I would've fought myself not to fall About Maegan Abel: Maegan despises writing about herself in the third person. She also hates touting her accomplishments like she thinks she’s really done all this amazing stuff… Now that we’ve gotten that out of the way, I’ll tell you what you need to know. I was born and raised in Tulsa, Oklahoma. I went to college in my late twenties and studied Stage Production Technology. I now work full-time in an alterations shop of a major department store and part-time backstage in the various theaters around the area. I’ve been an avid reader from a very young age and the top goal on my list of things to accomplish in my life was to write and publish a book. During the summer of 2013, while working backstage on The Lion King, I read eleven books in four weeks. It was during that time that the character of Lili was born and after the show left Tulsa, I sat down and began writing my first published book, Perfectly Broken.

This inspiring short book will appeal to those who want to write, but have not yet begun, beginner writers, and any writers who wish to improve their craft. Author Holtenson breaks down ten types of mistakes, and then carefully addresses each, providing not criticism, but positive praise with every sentence. You will go through this book realising that you, too, can and should write, to follow your desires. I especially appreciated the author's emphasis on the importance of reading much as well as writing much. Polish your craft and work toward excellence!

MOTIVATION: 8 Simple Secrets to Motivation: Find Inspiration, Shift Mindset & Create Success (Motivational, Self-Help, Productivity, Happiness)MOTIVATION: 8 Simple Secrets to Motivation: Find Inspiration, Shift Mindset & Create Success by K. I. Cobarrubias


The author offers 8 steps to increasing one's motivation, pointing out throughout that happiness and success are neither the same, nor exclusive of each other. A simple lifestyle can be abundant in joy and generosity while a wealthy lifestyle can be lonely. Instead, each of us needs to recover the wonder and ability to imagine and create that we possessed in childhood, then use that to intuit, feel, and proceed.

This short book can be read in one sitting, but will provide food for further thought and examination.
