Breakfast Anytime: Family-Friendly Edition
"This collection of poems runs the gamut from passion between a couple, a parent grieving their child growing up too fast, scorned lovers and more. My favorites included the title poem "Breakfast Anytime", an acrostic which tells an interesting story; "Amazement", a sweet poem told from an ill child's perspective, and "The Cure for a Broken Heart", a cute piece about a young woman seeking a doctor's advice on how to get past a break up.
I recommend this collection for poetry enthusiasts, as well as those that enjoy lyrical imagery. Very well done." - Bex A.
He wanted to pick the lock to her heart...
Kyle was a guy in love with a girl who was different from the rest. she lived in a world of make-believe where knights and dragons abounded, castles awaited storming, and treasure lay in dark dungeons beyond dangers the likes of which only the bravest of the brave did dare to face.
Cameron, Jessie, Shai, Dawn, and Cryss belonged to a growing minority: self-professed 'geek girls' whose passion was tabletop role-playing games. For some of them, it seemed that dating was beyond their reach and that, in the deepest parts of their hearts, love remained the greatest treasure yet to be found.
...but he forgot to check for traps.
Can Kyle make it past their swords and shields to enter their world in his attempt to rescue his fair maiden from her tower prison or, when he gets there, will he find that the one he is after has no desire to be rescued?
Genre: Fantasy / Romance / Comedy
"I SO want to watch this movie!" ... (on her favorite part) "I think the climax when the whole plot came together. You really know how to tie all the elements together." - Alison T.
