Free and bargain Kindle books! (Friday July 26)

Here's a Kindle book available for free today!

Getting Some, by Kiki Terrell. (Still free?)

"Therapy through the pages! On the surface this book is full to the brim of attitude and sexy scenarios, but once you get into it you are met with a richly woven narrative about friendship, marriage and striving to live the life you always wanted to. `Getting Some' focuses on the lives of three women who have been friends for years, as they struggle to help each other while their marriages (future and present) collapse around them. The tone is upbeat and exciting, but the content tackles some serious issues that we all have to deal with in our lives." -- Amazon reviewer

'Three girlfriends across the pond navigate the roller coaster of sex, love and life in this entertaining chick-lit debut!' - Kirkus Reviews

'...witty, naughty and engaging!' - Sweet Georgia Press

What do you do when getting what you want in life and love requires giving up everything you thought you owned? Chama, Tasha and Coco are three friends pursuing their dreams in London. Tasha’s newly-minted, new-age world view makes her current life peaceful and her gangster past something of a distant memory - until her man’s self-imposed celibacy ban is broken just long enough for him to impregnate her – and propose to someone else. Coco’s just about managing to keep her life, her staff and her husband firmly in the palm of her hand, until one wild indiscretion sends her into a tailspin and causes everything she knows to crumble. Chama’s Christian values – and her belief in happily ever after - are challenged by her husband’s impotence. Does a founding member and head of the women’s ministry of the Blessed Family Church leave her husband for his inability to have sex? Things come to a head when the secret that two of them have allowed to remain buried erupts in one life-changing afternoon and it seems like things can never be the same again.

This book is a funny, sexy romp through the relationship terrain of three modern thirty-something women.

Jack and Yani Love Harry Potter, by Mary Twomey. (Still 3.99?)

"A sweet romantic comedy! I loved this book! I am a fan of Ms. Twomey's other books, but I wasn't sure how I would feel about this book, seeing as I haven't read the Harry Potter series, but you don't have to be a fan of Harry Potter, Twilight, or others such books to enjoy this fantastic read. It was a sweet love story filled with hilarious and memorable characters and fun adventures. I highly recommend this book!" -- Amazon reviewer

Best friends Jack and Yani do everything together. After Yani’s thirtieth birthday party, however, she decides to leave town on a spontaneous vacation to visit all the sites of the young adult fiction novels she loves, hoping that when she returns, she’ll have buried the secret flame she has for Jack.
Forced by his friends to go on a road trip to track down Yani, Jack learns a lot about his best friend by reading the novels she’s been obsessed with. From vampire hunting in Forks to searching for wizards in Florida, Jack confronts his greatest fears –that he just might love Harry Potter…and perhaps, Yani.

Starfish: A Mother's Journey Through a Hard-Core Drug Rehab, by Donna George. (Still 2.99?)

"This is a book of courage, hope and faith and I would recommend it to anyone. As a therapist working in the field of addiction recovery, I'm especially pleased to have such an honest, hopeful account to recommend to my clients. For anyone who doubts that there's a place for "hard core" recovery programs, this book shows, that while flawed and antiquated in some ways, Sunflower House was a life saver for Donna. Her gratitude for this kind of second chance becomes crystal clear. I was embarrassed and dismayed by some of the highly unethical actions taken by some of the staff - I'd like to think we've come a long way in terms of assuring accountability and professionalism in the field. That being said, fighting this disease that untreated leads to institutions and death, can call for extreme measures, extreme courage, and extreme faith. These truths combined makes for a fascinating read. Thanks for giving back by sharing your story of hope!" -- Amazon reviewer

She lived by the ocean in Santa Cruz, California in the 1980s with her beautiful daughters. She enjoyed life as a free spirit until the partying got out of hand, and she became a heroin & opiate addict. As her life spiraled out of control she sank ever lower, abandoning one daughter in Hawaii and barely mothering the other. Hating herself, unable to look in a mirror, every day became a haze of hustling to ward off the withdrawals. At 32 she knew her life would end soon, and didn't care. Nothing mattered but drugs and getting well for one more day.

Fate intervened when she was busted for prescription forgery and entered a long-term, hard-core program called Sunflower House. None of the other programs had worked, but this one was different. She would be confronted and humiliated, forced to face herself and see the truth. She was the hopeless kind of addict that everyone had given up on, and couldn't possibly make it through such a difficult program.

In STARFISH, Donna George writes unflinchingly of her journey to recovery. She reveals how she abandoned her children in the pursuit of drugs, and shows how tough love broke through her denial. An intimate, gritty, and inspiring story.
