Their love had the power of a runaway freight train, and the potential to be just as destructive. The tempestuous sequel to Bad Things picks up where the first book left off. Reeling from a profound loss, Tristan and Danika struggle to pick up the pieces and build a life together, but the hard habits of a lifetime are not so easy to escape. Rock Bottom takes us on a dual point of view journey through addiction and desire, through love and agony, and answers the question we´ve been asking since these characters were introduced in Grounded: What happened between Tristan and Danika? Dankia: Even love couldn´t cushion a fall like ours. My love for Tristan was so big that I felt consumed by it, and even so, it was not enough to overpower our combined demons. I struggled. I yelled and screamed. I scratched and kicked. I fought like hell, but even the most determined fighters have to stop before they break. No one could say I didn´t fight for him. ´´I love you,´´ I spoke softly into his ear. He gripped me harder. ´´I can´t ever lose you, Danika. I´m not sure I´d survive it.´´ ´´You´ve got me. And I´m not going anywhere. Not ever.´´ I meant the words when I said them, but life had other plans for us. I´d have given my life for that fight. In fact, I very nearly did. Tristan: She was the one. If I´d ever had a doubt, I didn´t now. She was the one I´d be thinking about, longing for, until I took my last breath. If I lost her tomorrow, I´d pine for her like a lovesick fool. This was the kind of love that only hit you once in your life. This book is intended for readers 18 and up. 1. Language: English.

James She was my sin and my temple. I both worshipped and defiled there. Gloried and desecrated. Revered and debased. I´ve been remade four times in my life. It is a distinct feeling. Impossible to mistake. The very marked sensation of being unraveled and reknit into a new thing, a new person. It can be good or bad, helpful or harmful, but above all, it is unstoppable. I was remade when my parents died, went from a happy childhood into navigating a very dark world, with endless responsibilities, surrounded by enemies, and despairingly alone. It happened again at the hands of a cowardly predator. I´d become angrier with that one, more cynical, and it undoubtedly turned me into the kinky f**k I was today. The third happened swiftly. One day I looked up into a pair of pale blue eyes and saw the other half of my soul. Checkmate. I went from a completely controlled existence, a life where I made every decision with cold calculation, to a man overcome with feelings and emotions that were foreign but somehow wonderful. And all too soon after that cataclysmic change was this fourth one, this one where I begged a God I´d never entertained to spare the life of a woman that I could not live without. Mr. Beautiful is a continuation of the Up in the Air series, told from the male point of view, with POVs from James, Stephan, Tristan, Frankie, and Akira. This book is intended for readers 18 and up. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Jason Clarke. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/acx0/029529/bk_acx0_029529_sample.mp3. Digital audiobook in aax.

All of us long to know what life after death will be like. Best-selling author John Burke is no exception. In Imagine Heaven, Burke compares over 100 gripping stories of near-death experiences (NDEs) to what Scripture says about our biggest questions of heaven: Will I be myself? Will I see friends and loved ones? What will heaven look like? What is God like? What will we do forever? What about children and pets? For decades, Burke has been studying accounts of survivors brought back from near death who lived to tell of both heavenly and hellish experiences. While not every detail of individual NDEs correlate with Scripture, Burke shows how the common experiences shared by thousands of survivors - including doctors, college professors, bank presidents, people of all ages and cultures, and even blind people - point to the exhilarating picture of heaven promised in the Bible. This thrilling journey into the afterlife will make you feel like you´ve been there. It will forever change the way you view the life to come and the way you live your life today. You´ll discover heaven is even more amazing than you´ve ever imagined. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Tristan Wright.
