Has posed a really good question .  I am finishing up Damaged by Alex Kava  I am giving away 2 copies

Corner of Bitter and Sweet by Jamie Ford (Boyfriend got a gift I swear)
I just finished "Here's the Deal Dont Touch Me" by Howie Mendell
I am going to brutally honest here .  I had no intention on reading this book at all
I saw Mr. Mendell promoting this book on Good Morning America and I thought
to myself thougt it wasn't for me .  I mean aren't alot of actors,althletes trying

Our story begins in New Orleans in the 1950's on the night that the two main
characters lives will be radically changed.   Ivory "Bones" Arcineaux meets Hampton
Bynote at an illegal gambling house.  Things get hot for our scoundrels until Hampton
meets Magnolia Holiday  she appears to be everything  he is looking for except
he doesn't know it yet.  While she definitely makes a difference in Hampton's liefe will
