A sexy, sizzling, and deliciously fun standalone romance from the #1 New York Times Bestselling author of Big Rock and Full Package! Once upon a time in New York City, there was a down-on-his-luck actor named Reeve, who was talented and gorgeous in that dreamy, broody sort of way that makes all the women swoon. But show biz is a rough biz - he lost out on a part in a big film, and now his day job hours have been cut too. What's a handsome young thing in need of a role to do? Sign up to be the fake fiancé of the sexy and shrewd casting director Sutton Brenner, who must appear temporarily attached if she's to land a coveted gig casting a red-hot film. So Sutton strikes a pact with Reeve to play the role of her fiancé until she closes the deal. The trouble is - she's sexy-as-hell and damn near irresistible to him. And he's not only a great guy, but also the best dirty talker she's ever met. It doesn't take long for their pretend love affair to heat up, especially after that toe-curling night in the balcony of the Broadway theater. And that scorching afternoon in the stacks of the New York Public Library. A red-hot love affair. An intense connection. But as the lines between make-believe and matters of the heart blur, can two people working in the world of acting fake it til they make it? PRETENDING HE'S MINE is part of the New York Times & USA Today Bestselling CAUGHT UP IN LOVE series and each book can be read as a standalone.**

Book Summary :

Discover the thrillingly romantic New York Times and USA Today Bestselling Caught Up in Love series by #1 NYT Bestseller Lauren Blakely, author of BIG ROCK & FULL PACKAGE! A sweet romance so perfect it could have been scripted by Hollywood. But can a first love survive past the first summer?... I'm not going to say it was love at first sight when I met her. I don't believe in that. Because love isn't about falling for someone's looks. Though she was beautiful in every single way, from her dark, wavy hair to her gorgeous brown eyes, to the soft curves of her body. But that's not why I fell so hard for her that summer. She took my breath away for reasons that had nothing to do with her looks. It was the the movies, the conversations, the walks through the small town, the nights on the beach with the waves rolling in, the way I could hold her hand and feel as if the world had simply melted away and we were all that was left. So, there was no love-at-first-sight. That would come later, and if it happened first it would take away all the reasons that stayed with me for the next five years. Even though you're not supposed to fall for your best friend's little sister. But that didn't stop me... Caught Up in Her is a prequel novella in the New York Times and USA Today Bestselling Caught Up in Love series.

Вот только сразу предупреждаем, что книга эта никак не предназначена для детей девятилетнего возраста, напротив, это очень взрослая книга, обращенная к людям, которые знают, что такое колючая проволока. Именно колючая проволока вырастет на вашем с Бруно пути. Такого рода ограждения достаточно распространены в нашем мире. И нам остается только надеяться, что вы лично в реальной жизни не столкнетесь ни с чем подобным. Книга же наверняка захватит вас и вряд ли скоро отпустит.

Can one girl take on so many identities without losing her own? Find out in this riveting companion to The Program and the New York Times bestselling The Treatment. In a world before The Program… Quinlan McKee is a closer. Since the age of seven, Quinn has held the responsibility of providing closure to grieving families with a special skill—she can “become” anyone. Recommended by grief counselors, Quinn is hired by families to take on the short-term role of a deceased loved one between the ages of fifteen and twenty. She’s not an exact copy, of course, but she wears their clothes and changes her hair, studies them through pictures and videos, and soon, Quinn can act like them, smell like them, and be them for all intents and purposes. But to do her job successfully, she can’t get attached. Now seventeen, Quinn is deft at recreating herself, sometimes confusing her own past with those of the people she’s portrayed. When she’s given her longest assignment, playing the role of Catalina Barnes, Quinn begins to bond with the deceased girl’s boyfriend. But that’s only the beginning of the complications, especially when Quinn finds out the truth about Catalina’s death. And the epidemic it could start.

Book Summary :

Северная Корея начала ХХI века. В стране, где правит культ личности Ким Чен Ира, процветают нищета, коррупция и жестокость власти по отношению к собственному народу, лишенному элементарных человеческих прав. Публичные казни, концлагеря и тюремные шахты, рабство, похищения японцев и южнокорейцев, круглосуточная пропаганда и запрет на все иностранное – такова реальность существования людей, которых государственная машина превращает в зомби.Главный герой романа, мальчик из сиротского приюта, в 14 лет становится солдатом, которого учат сражаться в темных туннелях, прорытых в демилитаризованной зоне, а через несколько лет – безжалостным похитителем людей. В награду за «успехи» его отправляют радистом на рыболовное судно, которое в действительности шпионит за иностранными кораблями. Впоследствии, после жестокой «проверки», он попадает в Америку как переводчик дипломатической делегации, где его по воле случая принимают за Министра тюремных шахт.Захватывающая история его невероятных, на грани абсурда, приключений полна трагизма и жертвенной любви, слепого подчинения идеологии Чучхе и чувства долга по отношению к близким. Автор намеренно сгущает краски, что делает этот роман сродни «бомбе, разорвавшейся среди ясного неба» в цивилизованном обществе.Некоторые критики сравнивают роман Джонсона, написанный в популярном жанре магического реализма, с произведениями Джорджа Оруэла, автора всемирно известных сатирических произведений, обличающих тоталитаризм – «1984» и «Скотный двор» и Олдоса Хаксли, автора антиутопического сатирического романа «О дивный новый мир».Роман получил Пулитцеровскую премию, которая считается одной из наиболее престижных наград США в области художественной литературы и журналистики. Он входит в топ-листы таких изданий как Wall Street Journal, Washington Post, Entertainment Weekly, New York Times, Los Angeles Times, San Francisco Chronicle, Financial Times, Newsweek/The Daily Beast, The Plain Dealer, St. Louis Post-Dispatch, Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, USA Today, Vogue, Elle, GQ, Time Out, Playboy. Является лидером продаж ряда независимых книжных сетей в США.

Book Summary :

While every new TV series has to face some problems, no show had to overcome greater obstacles than Gilligan's Island. In spite of that, no series has achieved greater success, as measured by the fact that Gilligan's Island has given rise to three TV movies, two animated series, and is the most rerun program in the entire history of television. Now, Sherwood Schwartz, creator, writer, and producer of Gilligan's Island, tells the life story of the show: from the labor pains of scripting, casting, and production to its golden years of afternoon reruns. Fascinating history that could be known only by the show's creator is enhanced by wonderful photos, sketches, and other illustrations from the author's personal collection, as well as the guest forewords by all seven "Castaways." An appendix lists plots, writers and directors for every episode. All this behind-the-scenes information makes the book a special treat, not only for fans, but for anyone interested in an inside look at the television industry.

Book Summary :

Джулиан Барнс — пожалуй, самый яркий и оригинальный прозаик современной Британии. А его роман «Предчувствие конца» получил Букеровскую премию — одну из наиболее престижных литературных наград в мире. Возможно, основной талант Барнса — умение легко и естественно играть в своих произведениях стилями и направлениями. Тонкая стилизация и едкая ирония, утонченный лиризм и доходящий до цинизма сарказм, агрессивная жесткость и веселое озорство — Барнсу подвластно все это и многое другое. В класс элитной школы, где учатся Тони Уэбстер и его друзья Колин и Алекс, приходит новенький — Адриан Финн. Неразлучная троица быстро становится четверкой, но Адриан держится наособицу: «Мы вечно прикалывались и очень редко говорили всерьез. А наш новый одноклассник вечно говорил всерьез и очень редко прикалывался». После школы четверо клянутся в вечной дружбе — и надолго расходятся в разные стороны; виной тому романтические переживания и взрослые заботы, неожиданная трагедия и желание поскорее выбросить ее из головы... И вот постаревший на сорок лет Тони получает неожиданное письмо от адвоката и, начиная раскручивать хитросплетенный клубок причин и следствий, понимает, что прошлое, казавшееся таким простым и ясным, таит немало шокирующих сюрпризов... В 2017 году в мировой прокат выходит киноверсия этого романа. Главные роли в фильме исполнили Шарлотта Рэмплинг, Джим Бродбент, Мишель Докери, Эмили Мортимер, Джо Элвин.
