Dawn Doyle - The Full Experience
Raven Valiente was glad to be in her senior year at Gable College. It meant the last year she would have to put up getting frustrated by the dirty-minded, foul-mouthed ‘man-tramp’. Beck Traynor, upon first sight, looked like a walking wet dream. His dark hair, silver-gray eyes, model good looks, and muscular build, were what made the girls go crazy. Not Raven, though. He’d tried to charm her from the day they started college, but she wouldn’t give in, no matter how much he tried. It didn’t matter that he had her weak at the knees, had her heart fluttering in her chest, or even that just his presence gave her goosebumps. He wasn’t going to get in her pants and claim her as a statistic on the ever growing chart on his bed post. Every now and again, Raven caught glimpses into a different Beck. There was more him than what he let people see. Maybe there was an underlying reason to his behavior. What that was, she didn’t know, but he frustrated the hell out of her regardless. If you don’t like bad language or over-use of the F-bomb, this book isn’t for you. If you don’t like detailed sex scenes between characters, this book isn’t for you. The main characters in this book are NOT teenagers. The book starts in senior year of college, with flash backs of the previous years.

Richard Stark - The Score
You probably haven’t ever noticed them. But they’ve noticed you. They notice everything. That’s their job. Sitting quietly in a nondescript car outside a bank making note of the tellers’ work habits, the positions of the security guards. Lagging a few car lengths behind the Brinks truck on its daily rounds. Surreptitiously jiggling the handle of an unmarked service door at the racetrack. They’re thieves. Heisters, to be precise. They’re pros, and Parker is far and away the best of them. If you’re planning a job, you want him in. Tough, smart, hardworking, and relentlessly focused on his trade, he is the heister’s heister, the robber’s robber, the heavy’s heavy. You don’t want to cross him, and you don’t want to get in his way, because he’ll stop at nothing to get what he’s after. Parker, the ruthless antihero of Richard Stark’s eponymous mystery novels, is one of the most unforgettable characters in hardboiled noir. Lauded by critics for his taut realism, unapologetic amorality, and razor-sharp prose-style—and adored by fans who turn each intoxicating page with increasing urgency—Stark is a master of crime writing; his books as influential as any in the genre. The University of Chicago Press has embarked on a project to return the early volumes of this series to print for a new generation of readers to discover—and become addicted to. Parker works with a group of professional con men in The Score on his biggest job yet—robbing an entire town in North Dakota.
