In this sequel to the award-winning FIGHTING RUBEN WOLFE, Cameron explores the ecstasy, the danger, and the cost of love. Cameron Wolfe is a loser. He knows it. He's the quiet one, not a soccer star like his brother Steve or a charming fighter with a new girl every week like his brother Rube. Cam would give anything to be near one of those girls, to love her and treat her right. He especially likes Rube's latest, Octavia, with her brilliant ideas and bright green eyes. But what woman like that would want a loser like him? Maybe Octavia would, Cam discovers. Maybe he'd even have something to say. And those maybes change everything: winning, loving, losing, the Wolfe brothers, and Cameron himself.

Sunglasses. Check. Binoculars. Check. Notepad. Check. Mom's pink bike. Check. Check? Meet Sherman Mack. Short. Nerdy. Amateur P.I. and prepared to do anything for Dini Trioli. Nobody knows who began it or when it became a tradition, but every girl at Harewood Tech fears being D-listed, a ritual that wipes her off the social map forever. When Sherman believes Dini is in danger of being D-listed, he snatches up his surveillance gear and launches a full-scale investigation to uncover who is responsible. Could it be the captain of the lacrosse team? The hottest girls in school, the Trophy Wives? Or maybe their boyfriends? One thing is for sure: Sherman Mack is on the case. And he's not giving up. Part comedy, part mystery, and with all of Juby's trademark tongue-in-cheek humor, Getting the Girl takes on one of the cruelest aspects of high school: how easy it is for an entire school to turn on someone, and how hard it can be to be the only one willing to fight back.

It's for every man who has spotted a beautiful girl across a crowded room at a party, in the office—even walking down the street—but has lacked the confidence to approach her. The book is not just about finding and seducing the woman you want; it's also about satisfying her in and out of bed, so that a brief fling can become a long-term relationship.

As Hollywood's hottest actor, getting a woman in my bed is never a challenge. Then I spotted her at a bar-she wanted a man for the night, and I jumped at the chance to fill the role. I gave her Joel Kline's best, and she smacked my pretty face. But don't worry, that's not the end of our story. Her brand of crazy inspired me, and I had to see her again, no matter the cost. Now, Alessandra Rose is my lead makeup artist for the next four months. Literally, her job is to touch me every day for the duration of filming. Sounds like a win, right? Nope, she stops me at every hint of a flirt. I'm in uncharted waters for once. Joel Kline's famous techniques to get the girl are failing me. It's no longer about those sexy Brazilian lips, or her fiery spirit that gives me a hard-on. It's about making her banana pancakes after she spends the night in my home. It's about knocking down those walls around her, claiming her as mine. She's going to fight me, of course, unwilling to accept that it's not all an act. But I'm not going anywhere; that's how you get the girl.

Our mindsets drive the emotions we have, the decisions we make, and the women we attract into our lives. This book outlines the very best dating mindsets I've tested, experienced, and found most successful. Getting the girl isn't just a Hollywood fantasy; attracting beautiful women isn't the sole domain of the super rich, the super hunk, or the outrageously gifted. Attracting and dating beautiful women isn't about magic and pickup lines, it's about your mindsets, basic human insights, and a little female psychology. This book outlines the FOUR FOUNDATIONS of successful dating: Attraction, Rapport, Leading, and Escalation. ATTRACTION is about tension and her emotional response to you. RAPPORT is about intimacy and her emotional connection with you. LEADING is about challenging your fears and taking action while communicating sincerity through your actions. ESCALATION is about consistently increasing the intensity of your relationship via attraction and rapport so that it goes where ever you want it to go. When you learn how to inspire ATTRACTION and RAPPORT in a woman through your actions of LEADING and ESCALATION, you'll create a compelling chemistry between you and her that most men will NEVER achieve. QUESTIONS THIS BOOK ANSWERS: - What's the best way to avoid the "friend zone"? - Why do some women resist guys they're REALLY into? And how can you tell the difference? - How can you remove the fear of rejection when approaching a woman? - What are 5 easy ways to make a woman feel at ease and comfortable with you? - What are 6 powerful ways to prevent yourself from feeling jealous? - What are 14 ways she is trying to tell you she's into you that most guys miss? - When is the right time to kiss her? - What are 5 things you should do or say when in bed with a woman?! - Etc, etc, etc...

About the Book The information provided is for men (and maybe women) who need just a little help getting and/or keeping a girlfriend or just to entertain people.

No one should be too ashamed or too proud to read this book.
