Why Men And Women Can't Be Friends: Honest Relationship Advice for Women (Educated Rants and Wild Guesses Book 1)
With candid honesty Oliver Markus Malloy explores the age-old question: "Can men and women ever really be just friends?" Women think so. But every man knows that it's impossible. Read this book and find out what really goes on in a man's mind. You will never look at opposite-sex friendships the same way again.

EXCERPT:

One in two marriages end in divorce. Often because a couple doesn't notice how they slowly drift apart, because we have more in common with someone else and develop emotional intimacy with that someone else. We find some other shoulder to cry on, or  we can't wait to tell that someone else about our day. And then eventually people cheat with these co-workers or friends of the opposite sex.

Your marriage has a 50% chance of falling apart. So when you feel insecure and jealous about your significant other's close opposite-sex friend, you're not being paranoid, you're being realistic. And if you have a close opposite-sex friend, you can't blame your partner for worrying that sooner or later it will break up your relationship somehow.

Divorce statistics don't take into account all your other relationships that fell apart. If you dated nine men before you got married, that means your relationships so far had a 90% failure rate. And most likely meeting someone of the opposite sex (maybe when you went to college, or started a new job) and getting close with him had something to do with that. Do you really need a close intimate friend of the opposite sex that increases the odds even further that your current relationship will break apart too?

We men know that most of you women want to have an emotional connection with someone before you  sleep with him. We men know that a lot of you women think it's romantic to be friends first, and then the friendship blossoms into a relationship. Men know that we have to jump through all these hoops first, before we can get laid. And that's really all romance and courtship is to a man: hoops we have to jump through to get laid.

We men pretend to be "just a friend" at first, even though we want to sleep with you from day one. Otherwise we wouldn't be spending any time, money or attention on you, because these are limited resources and we need these resources to attract a mate. We can't afford to squander them. So we apply these resources to the female that looks to be our best bet to get laid. But we also know that we can't tell you on day one that we want to sleep with you, because you'll think it's creepy. So we play along with the illusion that it's "just a friendship" that "suddenly" developed into more, when you finally feel inclined to sleep with us "because we have a deep connection." But that was really our goal from day one.

You can do a simple test: Next time you talk to your best male friend, tell him that you feel very close to him and that you have been thinking about what it would be like to sleep with him, because you two have this deep connection. Ask him if he would be open to that. Of course he will say yes. Because that was the whole reason why he was courting and wooing you in a slow process that you mistook for "just being friends."

Pride and Prejudice (Wisehouse Classics - with Illustrations by H.M. Brock)
PRIDE AND PREJUDICE is a novel of manners by Jane Austen, first published in 1813. The story follows the main character, Elizabeth Bennet, as she deals with issues of manners, upbringing, morality, education, and marriage in the society of the landed gentry of the British Regency. Elizabeth is the second of five daughters of a country gentleman, Mr. Bennet living in Longbourn.


Set in England in the early 19th century, Pride and Prejudice tells the story of Mr. and Mrs. Bennet's five unmarried daughters after the rich and eligible Mr. Bingley and his status-conscious friend, Mr. Darcy, have moved into their neighborhood. While Bingley takes an immediate liking to the eldest Bennet daughter, Jane, Darcy has difficulty adapting to local society and repeatedly clashes with the second-eldest Bennet daughter, Elizabeth.


Pride and Prejudice retains a fascination for modern readers, continuing near the top of lists of "most loved books". It has become one of the most popular novels in English literature, selling over 20 million copies, and receives considerable attention from literary scholars. Modern interest in the book has resulted in a number of dramatic adaptations and an abundance of novels and stories imitating Austen's memorable characters or themes.

Murder on The Mind (The Jeff Resnick Mystery Series Book 1)
Jeff Resnick hardly knew his well-heeled half-brother. But after suffering a fractured skull in a vicious mugging, he reluctantly accepts the fact that he has a long and brutal recovery to face—and his closest of kin can provide him with the time and place to do it.

Now, Jeff is haunted by unexplained visions of a heinous crime—a banker, stalked, killed, and eviscerated like a ten-point buck. When Matt Sumner’s murder is discovered, a still-recovering Jeff realizes this was what he had seen. Jeff must not only convince himself of his new-found psychic ability, but also his skeptical brother Richard Alpert. Since Sumner was Richard’s banker, both brothers have a stake in finding out what happened. With Richard’s reluctant help, Jeff’s investigation leads him to Sumner’s belligerent family and hard-nosed business associates, none of whom want him snooping around.

When Jeff discovers a second victim, he knows he must relentlessly chase his quarry even if it means risking his brother’s life.


“This fine paranormal amateur sleuth will send readers shuffling off to Buffalo to accompany Jeff on his investigation.”
--Midwest Book Review

“Nicely written and quite twisty.”
--The Book Bitch

“Murder on the Mind was a very compelling read, the plot tight and well-paced, and the relationships among the three principals (Jeff, Richard and Brenda) fascinating and cozy. I found it difficult to put down.”
--The Cozy Library

“This book was a great ride that I didn’t want to get off. I fell in love with the characters and I love the tone of this story. This is a good read and I highly recommend it.”
Dru’s Book Musings

“Murder On The Mind catches your interest from page one.”
--BestSellersWorld.com


When Jeff Resnick begins to recover from a severe brain injury, he discovers he has the ability to sense past events --including a murder -- but nobody believes him. Resnick is a fine character, with a strong sense of right and wrong. This is a page-turner.
-- Barbara D’Amato, award-winning author of FOOLPROOF

"Put yourself in Jeff Resnick's shoes: You've suffered brain damage from a vicious mugging, and now you 'see' allegorical visions of murder in troubled nightmares and in even more troubling, conscious hallucinations. L. L. Bartlett does a wonderful job of showing us how difficult such a life can be as Jeff tries to overcome his own tragedy by using his new gift to investigate others. Beautifully written in a stark, spare style, MURDER ON THE MIND is a perfect choice for anyone open to a paranormal thread in a lovingly woven crime novel."
-- Jeremiah Healy, author of TURNABOUT and THE ONLY GOOD LAWYER:

L.L. Bartlett is a New York Times bestselling author.

Murder On The Mind was originally published in hardcover by Five Star/Cengage. Published in paperback by Worldwide Mystery Library.
