Whenever a new Maya Banks book comes out, I have to instantly rush out to the store and buy it. While Letting Go didn’t ignite omg, this is the best book ever emotions, I still really loved it.

Fast-paced, with intense sex scenes and an intriguing jumble of the sports and fashion worlds, this steamy novel will satisfy those who like a little heat in their love stories.

A unique guide.

These depictions of Roger Ailes as something other than a frothing, ratings-mad showman-provocateur may be cases of damning with faint praise. But it’s about as a fair and balanced an account as one could hope to read about someone who has so weightily tipped the scales of American political life to the right.
