Girls & Sex: Navigating the Complicated New Landscape - Peggy Orenstein

In Peggy Orenstein’s book, aptly titled Girls and Sex, she examines the hyper-sexualized lives of American girls aged 15-20. The book investigates how these teenagers navigate a world that places a premium on their sexualization - and makes them complicit in the scheme. From campus hook up culture and rape to purity balls and sex ed classes, Orenstein examines their lives from every angle, basing her observations on in-depth interviews with girls across the country. The patterns and habits she notes are alarming, but there are also noteworthy points of hope.

Destiny's Embrace - Beverly Jenkins

As one of the queens of historical romance, Beverly Jenkins has a terrific track record—over thirty novels to her name, all of which feature dynamic African-American characters living in the 19th century. In Destiny's Embrace, the first book in her Destiny Trilogy, we follow seamstress Mariah Cooper as she leaves her domineering mother and spineless ex-fiance behind in Philadelphia to take a job as housekeeper for California rancher Logan Yates. The tension between the two crackles as the equally stubborn characters first deny, then eventually give in to, their mutual attraction.

Anything for You - Kristan Higgins

Anything for You, the latest from Kristan Higgins, is a sweet, contemporary romance set against the ultra-romantic backdrop of New York's Finger Lakes region. This novel isn't quite as steamy as traditional romances, which makes it ideal for someone looking to ease into the genre. The book opens with Connor O'Rourke proposing to his long time, on-again, off-again love, Jessica Dunn- who turns him down. Flash back to the couple’s past; then, after a little back story, the book moves forward again. Will the two give it one more shot, or call it quits once and for all? Read and find out...
