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.

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...

From the bestselling author of THE BOOK THIEF Before THE BOOK THIEF, Markus Zusak wrote a trilogy of novels about the Wolfe Brothers: THE UNDERDOG, FIGHTING RUBEN WOLFE, and GETTING THE GIRL. Cameron and Ruben Wolfe are champions at getting into fights, coming up with half-baked schemes, and generally disappointing girls, their parents, and their much more motivated older siblings. They're intensely loyal to each other, brothers at their best and at their very worst. But when Cameron falls head over heels for Ruben's girlfriend, the strength of their bond is tested to its breaking point. We're proud to present these novels together for the first time, and to be introducing American readers to THE UNDERDOG, never before published in the United States. Fans of THE BOOK THIEF won't want to miss reading the novels that launched Markus Zusak's stellar career.

A gritty tale of how far we’ll go to protect the ones we love for fans of Daniel Woodrell’s Winter’s Bone from Gale Massey, a talented new name in crime fiction. Everyone says the Elders family are nothing but cheats, thieves, and convicts—a fact nineteen-year old Jamie Elders has been trying desperately to escape. She may have the natural talent of a poker savant, but her dreams of going pro and getting the hell out of the tiny town of Blind River, New York are going nowhere fast. Especially once she lands in a huge pile of debt to her uncle Loyal. At Loyal’s beck and call until her debt is repaid, Jamie can’t easily walk away—not with her younger brother Toby left at his mercy. So when Loyal demands Jamie’s help cleaning up a mess late one night, she has no choice but to agree. But disposing of a dead man and covering up his connection to the town’s most powerful judge goes beyond family duty. When it comes out that the victim was a beloved athlete and Loyal pins the murder on Toby, only Jamie can save him. But with a dogged detective on her trail and her own future at stake, she’ll have to decide: embrace her inner criminal, or defy it—and face the consequences.

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.

* Costa Book Award for First Novel finalist * Dagger Award finalist "Kate Hamer's gripping debut novel immediately recalls the explosion of similarly titled books and movies, from Stieg Larsson's The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo and its sequels, to The Girl on the Train to Gone Girl ... "--Michiko Kakutani, The New York Times "Keeps the reader turning pages at a frantic clip... What's most powerful here is not whodunnit, or even why, but how this mother and daughter bear their separation, and the stories they tell themselves to help endure it." --Celeste Ng (Everything I Never Told You) "Compulsively readable...Beautifully written and unpredictable, I had to stop myself racing to the end to find out what happened." --Rosamund Lupton (Sister) "Both gripping and sensitive -- beautifully written, it is a compulsive, aching story full of loss and redemption." --Lisa Ballantyne (The Guilty One) "Hamer's dark tale of the lost and found is nearly impossible to put down." --Booklist Newly single mom Beth has one constant, gnawing worry: that her dreamy eight-year-old daughter, Carmel, who has a tendency to wander off, will one day go missing. And then one day, it happens: On a Saturday morning thick with fog, Beth takes Carmel to a local outdoor festival, they get separated in the crowd, and Carmel is gone. Shattered, Beth sets herself on the grim and lonely mission to find her daughter, keeping on relentlessly even as the authorities tell her that Carmel may be gone for good. Carmel, meanwhile, is on a strange and harrowing journey of her own--to a totally unexpected place that requires her to live by her wits, while trying desperately to keep in her head, at all times, a vision of her mother ... Alternating between Beth's story and Carmel's, and written in gripping prose that won't let go, The Girl in the Red Coat--like Emma Donoghue's Room and M. L. Stedman's The Light Between Oceans--is an utterly immersive story that's impossible to put down . . . and impossible to forget.
