Never kiss your boss. That's a lesson Kylie Rossi isn't going to forget, not after losing her job. Now she's back home with her parents, mopping floors at a taco shop, and trying to figure out exactly where everything went wrong. Was Chris Stevens just not that into her? Well, that seems plenty obvious. His complete lack of interest when he delivered the news didn't leave much room for misinterpretation. When Sergio Reyes shows up at Tio's Tacos, he's just what Kylie's grandma says she needs to order: handsome, charming, and maybe even interested in her. He seems like exactly what she needs to get over her heartbreak, but even so, she can't seem to get that boss out of her head. Her grandma's recipe for love gets a new ingredient when Chris gets back in touch. He is definitely still interested. Kylie has to figure out what she really wants - a fling with the man who fired her or love with a side of chips. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Traci Tyne Hilton.

The Electric Woman is Tessa Fontaine's astonishing audiobook memoir about a life-affirming journey of loss and self-discovery. Narrated by the author, this audiobook recounts Tessa's life on the road with the last traveling American sideshow and her relationship with an adventurous, spirited mother. Turns out, one lesson applies to living through illness, keeping the show on the road, letting go of the person you love most, and eating fire: The trick is there is no trick. You eat fire by eating fire. Two journeys - a daughter’s and a mother’s - bear witness to this lesson in The Electric Woman. For three years Tessa Fontaine lived in a constant state of emergency as her mother battled stroke after stroke. But hospitals, wheelchairs, and loss of language couldn’t hold her mother back; she and her husband would see Italy together, come what may. Thus Fontaine became free to follow her own piper, a literal giant inviting her to “come play” in the World of Wonders, America’s last traveling sideshow. How could she resist? Transformed into an escape artist, a snake charmer, and a high-voltage Electra, Fontaine witnessed the marvels of carnival life: intense camaraderie and heartbreak, the guilty thrill of hard-earned cash exchanged for a peek into the impossible, and, most marvelous of all, the stories carnival folks tell about themselves. Through these, Fontaine trained her body to ignore fear and learned how to keep her heart open in the face of loss. A story for anyone who has ever imagined running away with the circus, wanted to be someone else, or wanted a loved one to live forever, The Electric Woman is ultimately about death-defying acts of all kinds, especially that ever constant: good old-fashioned unconditional love. 1.

Go into any checkout line, look on the cover of the women's magazines, and you are guaranteed to find the subject of 'beauty;' it's not so distant relative 'weight loss;' or its kissing cousin 'aging.'

We are raising a generation of desperate wives: desperate to be considered beautiful, desperate to look thin, desperate to stay young, desperate to be happy, desperate to be loved. Our greatest heartbreak quite often is not at the hands of men, but from stepping on the toes of other women, including ourselves.

She receives an afterschool lesson that goes beyond goals of glamour and delves deeper than dyed roots.
