Is It Possible to Love and Hate a Job at the Same Time? In these hilariously frank essays, high school English instructor and popular parenting blogger Stephanie Jankowski throws open the classroom door to share the victories, challenges and WTF moments that make up being a teacher today—picture way fewer apples and way more confiscated cell phones. Anyone in education or who deals with kids for a living will laugh and commiserate with Steph’s no-holds-barred commentary on lighthearted subjects such as being mistaken for a high schooler as a first-year teacher, accidentally saying the “C-word” in front of an assembly and navigating tricky student questions like “Are Trojan condoms named after those soldiers in the Odyssey?” You’ll also nod along as she tackles more serious topics like race and education, the death of a student and teaching with empathy. Required reading for every passionate, dedicated educator who’s felt like banging their head against the blackboard, Schooled shouts: “I see you, fellow teacher . . . and you’re not alone.”

Colin Valerio has been performing practically all his life. From national team figure skating, to underwear modeling, and now posting (shirtless) selfies daily for his adoring audience. Many don’t know though that at 29, he’s quietly earning his MBA degree—that is, if he can fix his final paper. It’s got too much heart, not enough business. National hockey team medalist, outstanding young professional, MBA prof on leave...Lexa Lorenzo is determined and driven, and did all that by age 32. She should be her family corp’s next CEO. But she’s all business, not enough heart, and her mentor/boss/aunt wants her to be more accessible, approachable, “charming.” As luck would have it, Lexa’s alma mater calls her in to help a graduating MBA student—and it’s Colin Valerio, fellow winter sports athlete, walking/talking ball of charm. She has the sports and business background he needs. He is a natural at all the things she’s told to improve on, and may be able to teach her a thing or two. Let the lessons begin. [Part of the Six 32 Central series, but can be read as a standalone.]

A sexy new brother's best friend romance from New York Times bestselling author Kendall Ryan. There are a few things you should know about my brother’s roommate. Wolfie Cox is . . . complicated. And incredibly sexy. Unfortunately, he has an impressive stick lodged so far up his ass, he’s about as emotionally available as a chinchilla. Actually, that might be an insult to the chinchilla community. So, naturally, I want to ride him like a bicycle. He thinks I hate him. Mostly because I’ve led him to believe this. It’s easier than admitting the truth. And while Wolfie is about as soft and cuddly as a fork, I’m the opposite. A good girl. Reliable. Conscientious. Oh, and completely panicked about an upcoming work conference. Wolfie’s usually allergic to altruism, so when my brother convinces him to help me out by escorting me to said conference where everyone else will have a plus-one . . . I say thanks, but no thanks. Surprisingly, Wolfie is unflinching about this. And that’s the story about how I got stuck in a hotel room with my brother’s hot (grouchy) roommate. Thank you for coming to my TED talk. In all seriousness, this isn’t a game to me, and hormones aside, I need to impress my boss this week so the promotion I’ve worked hard for doesn’t get handed to his worthless nephew. But with Wolfie and me sharing a hotel bed, things get confusing quickly. This is book two in the Frisky Business series, but each book can be read as a complete standalone.

The Liar's Club meets Fried Green Tomatoes in The Second Coming Of Curly Red, a heartwarming, feisty novel about the transformative power of love. Seventy-year-old Texan, Jimmy Heron, shattered by the tragic death of his wife, takes to the road as he tries to outrun his pain. When he is befriended by Cory Miller and Leigh O'Brien, a lesbian couple living in Reliance, Oregon, the possibilities for a renewed life -- for trust and commitment -- open up. The two women have become the target of a vicious harassment campaign fueled by the bigotry of the Christian Right. Spreading lies and fear couched as "family values, " the fire and brimstone of the Mt. Goshen Church of the Righteous spills over, igniting an all-too-real conflagration. In its heat, a community is forged and a town remembers how it got its name. The Second Coming of Curly Red is a story about what hatred can destroy and love rebuild, a story that will grab you by the heart and not let go.

Born in 1888 in Oklahoma Territory, Jim Thorpe was a Sac and Fox Indian. After attending the Sac and Fox agency school and Haskell Indian Junior College in Lawrence, Kansas, he transferred to Carlisle Indian School in Pennsylvania. At Carlisle he led the football team to victories over some of the nation’s best college teams-Army, Navy, Pittsburgh, Syracuse, Pennsylvania, and Nebraska. In 1912 he participated in the Olympic Games in Stockholm, winning both the decathlon and pentathlon. It was then that King Gustav V of Sweden dubbed him "the world’s greatest athlete." Between 1913 and 1919, Thorpe played professional baseball for the New York Giants, the Cincinnati Reds, and the Boston Braves. In 1915 he began playing professional football with the Canton (Ohio) Bulldogs. When the top teams were organized into the American Professional Football Association in 1920, Thorpe was named the first president of the league, which was renamed the National Football League in 1922. Throughout his career he excelled in every sport he played, earning King Gustav’s accolade many times over.
