Jennifer E. Smith - The Comeback Season
The last place Ryan Walsh should be this afternoon is on a train heading to Wrigley Field. She should be in class, enduring yet another miserable day of her first year of high school. But for once, Ryan isn't thinking about what she should be doing. She's not worried about her lack of friends, or her suffering math grade, or how it's been five whole years since the last time she was really and truly happy. Because she's finally returning to the place that her father loved, where the two of them spent so many afternoons cheering on their team. And on this -- the fifth anniversary of his death -- it feels like there's nowhere else in the world she should be. Ryan is once again filled with hope as she makes her way to the game. Good luck is often hard to come by at a place like Wrigley Field, but it's on this day that she meets Nick, the new kid from her school, who seems to love the Cubs nearly as much as she does. But Nick carries with him a secret that makes Ryan wonder if anyone can ever really escape their past, or believe in the promise of those reassuring words: "Wait till next year." Is it too much for Ryan to hope that this year, this season, might be her comeback season?

Paul "Coach" Wade - Fegyencedzés 2.
A Fegyencedzés első kötetének megjelenése óta az olvasók számtalan olyan kérdést tettek fel Paul Wade-nek, amelyek az első kötetben ismertetett alapokon messze túlmutatnak. A Fegyencedzés 2. a következő, valamint hozzájuk hasonló kérdésekre ad választ: • Mi a helyzet a végtagokkal? A nyakkal, az alkarral, a vádlival? • Hogyan érdemes dolgozni a test oldalán lévő izmokkal? • Hogyan erősíthetjük ízületeinket? A Fegyencedzés teljes egészében az erő alaprendszeréről szólt: a Mesterhatos mozdulatai, fokozatai, kiegészítve a gyakorlatok különböző, hasznos variációival. A második kötetben a magasabb szintű erőgyakorlatokat gyűjtötte össze a szerző. A rendszer haladó szintű gyakorlatainak nem az a célja, hogy a Mesterhatos helyébe lépjenek, hanem inkább abból nőnek ki. A valódi, egész testre kiterjedő fejlődés a Fegyencedzésből megtanult – egész testet megdolgoztató – alapgyakorlatok következetes, fegyelmezett és progresszív gyakorlásával érhető Ebben a könyvben bárki egy életre elegendő hasznos edzésprogramot talál! Az edzésmódszereken kívül azonban rengeteg tényezőtől függ az, hogy valakiből rendkívüli sportoló válik-e. A kötetben olvashatunk még: • a börtönbeli étrendről, • a napirend jelentőségéről az életben („a berregő szerint élni”), • a minőségi alvás és pihenés fontosságáról, • a mentális kontrollról (megküzdés a démonokkal), • a „straight edge” („tiszta élet”) előnyeiről sportolók esetében, • a gyógyulási képességekről (minimális orvosi/egészségügyi segítséggel). „Paul Wade könyve, a Fegyencedzés 2. briliáns ötleteket ad a test oldalsó izmainak felerősítéséhez. Kőkemény!” – Pavel Tsatsouline, a The Naked Warrior (A meztelen harcos) című kötet szerzője „A Fegyencedzés 2. alapelve a „látványos eredmény – kevés eszközzel”. A dobóatléták vagy a küzdősportot űzők egyedülálló és meglepő technikákat találhatnak a ferde hasizmok, valamint a törzs többi oldalsó izmának erősítéséhez Az oldalsó lánc edzése – Tartsd ki a zászlót! című fejezetben. Wade megközelítése jócskán felülmúlja a törzshajlításon és a bőröndemelgetésen alapuló gyakorlatokat, és ez a fejezet olyannyira úttörő jellegű, hogy valóban megéri rászánnunk az időt, és követnünk a szerző tanácsait. – Dan John, a Don’t Let Go című könyv szerzője és az Easy Strength című kötet társszerzője „A könyvek közül, amelyeket eddig olvastam, a Fegyencedzés gyakorolta rám az egyik legnagyobb hatást. A Fegyencedzés 2. sokkal magasabb szintre emelte az edzésemet, valamint a testsúllyal történő erősítés hatékonyságához való hozzáállásomat – onnantól kezdve, hogy a legkisebb izmokat is maximálisan, testsúllyal végzett gyakorlatokkal kell fejleszteni, egészen odáig, hogy ugyanez a módszer a több mint 22 éven át űzött agresszív emeléstől felhalmozódott sérülések gyógyítására is alkalmas… A Fegyencedzés 2. kétségkívül lehengerel, ösztönöz, és ugyanakkor megtanít arra, hogy a testsúllyal végzett edzésedet teljesen új, magasabb szintre emeld.” – Zach Even-Esh, Underground Strength-edző

Greyson King… My boyfriend. My friend. My protector.

There’s zero trace of him, he has zero past, and now I know that with him, I will have zero future. He may leave no trace of him anywhere, but his imprint is in me, in my very soul—and I hate that a mere look at him commands the beat of my heart. The temperature of my body. I’ve looked for love my entire life. I’ve waited for the butterflies, the rainbows… Instead I’m in a free fall of emotions and there’s no one to catch me but the one man I should be running away from. The one man I thought was my prince charming. Except this prince charming went rogue. Greyson will stop at nothing to make me be with him. He'll let no one stand in our way, will allow no one to threaten me, and maybe this is what scares me most of all... What will my rogue do to keep me?
