He isn't supposed to even talk to a human, much less fall in love with one… Sixteen-year-old Ryann Carroll has just run into the guy who saved her life ten years ago. You might think she'd be happy to see him again. Not exactly. She's a bit underdressed (as in skinny-dipping,) and he's not supposed to exist. After her father's affair, all Ryann wants is to escape the family implosion fallout and find a little peace. She also wouldn't mind a first date that didn't suck, but she's determined not to end up like her mom: vulnerable, betrayed, destroyed. Ryann's just moved into her grandma's house in rural Mississippi, the same place where ten years earlier she became lost in the woods overnight and nearly died. She's still irresistibly drawn to those woods. There she encounters the boy who kept her from freezing to death that long ago winter night and was nowhere to be seen when rescuers arrived. He's still mysterious, but now all grown-up and gorgeous, too. And the more she's with him, the greater the threat he poses to Ryann's strict policy– never want someone more than he wants you.  Seventeen-year-old Lad knows the law of his people all too well: Don't get careless and Don't get caught. It's allowed his race to live undetected in this world for thousands of years, mentioned only in flawed and fading folklore. Lad's never been able to forget about Ryann since that night ten years ago. When he sees her again, his fascination re-ignites and becomes a growing desire that tempts him to break all the rules. He's not supposed to even talk to a human, much less fall in love with one. And the timing is atrocious. The Assemblage is coming, the rift between the Light and Dark is widening. Lad may have to trade his own chance at happiness to keep the humans, especially Ryann, blissfully ignorant and safe.

REVIEWS: "I was immediately drawn to the cool, quiet tranquility of the woods. The details jumped off the page in deep green leaves and cold clear water. Then Lad and Ryann swept me right off my feet… I was glad that I started Hidden Deep on a Friday so that I could read straight through the night into the breaking hours of dawn. It ended way too quickly. I hope the continuation will be out soon. I will be making plans for another Friday night lost in the world of Lad and Ryann." – AJ- Bitten by Books  "I love it when I fall deeper into the story as I move from one chapter to the next. That's what I got here. … as a whole, this book is a delicious read. I actually went back to the first chapter immediately after finishing the epilogue which is HEART-STOPPING by the way. The cliffhanger left me with my mouth open and ready to reread the whole thing (which I kinda did).

Daddy’s Bareback Hidden Cam

"When you first meet these guys, they are usually like ‘I don’t do this,’ or ‘I don’t do that.’ ‘I’m a top only,’ or ‘I’m straight so i will only let you suck my dick.’ Well, to tell you the truth, these fucking whores will do anything you want, because they need money bad, and they are too lazy to go out and earn a decent living. Once you get past their bullshit, it’s easy peasy. The other thing I like to do is negotiate the price down. I know for a fact that 9 out of 10 of these hookers will let you stick it in for a hundred bucks. I tell them upfront, too, that they’re gonna let me fuck them until I nut, or it’s a no-go. So whether it’s five minutes or fifteen minutes, they’re gonna take my raw cock, whether their poor straight-boy asses are sore or not. The virgins are the most fun, because they are typically straight and used to being in charge when it comes to sex. I treat them just like they treat their bitches, and they always play the part well. Why? Because they’re just hustlers, and I’ve got the one thing they actually want."

In Your Face: The Hidden History of Plastic Surgery and Why Looks Matter

2014-05-19-inyourface.png

“Beauty is in the eye of the beholder.” This well-worn phrase implies subjectivity in the assessment of facial features deemed aesthetically appealing. At the same time, we know that there are some specific attributes that most objectively “attractive” faces have in common.

These attributes are most recently described in In Your Face, a new book by Australian plastic surgeon Dr. Bryan Mendelson. He lists averageness, symmetry and sexual dimorphism as attributes common to the attractive face. Recognizing these elements give us an objective way to analyze attractiveness.

Averageness
Craniofacial surgeons have long used averaged measurements drawn from large databases of facial dimensions for various population groups. These measurements guide their reconstructive procedures to normalize their patients’ features and to look more attractive.

Many studies, more recently using computer imaging techniques, have averaged the faces of various population groups. When responding to these “averaged” images, most observers deem these more attractive than the separate individuals within the pool that created the composite.

Symmetry
No face is perfectly symmetric. Most often, minor differences remain unnoticed both by the patient and the casual observer. More significant differences in the two sides of the face are, at the very least, distracting, and can be detracting.

Make-up artists and plastic surgeons have long recognized the importance of camouflaging or correcting facial asymmetries in their attempts to improve facial appearance.

Sexual dimorphism
Sexual dimorphism relates to the differences in facial features between men and women. On average, all facial measurements are greater in men than in women. In addition, the relations between those measurements differ in men and women–the ratios of how certain facial features relate to each other are a key difference between the sexes.

For example, women’s faces tend to be narrower than men’s. As a result, a strong wide chin and jaw in a man is considered masculine and attractive. A small lower jaw for a man may therefore less desirable, and may be an appropriate target for surgical enhancement.

Since the underlying facial skeleton is the fundamental determinant of facial appearance, the differences between men’s and women’s faces are obvious when male and female skulls are compared.

2014-05-19-skulls.bmp

Balance
Balance refers to the pleasing relation of parts. It includes averageness, symmetry and sexual dimorphism. It also recognizes that one feature may fall out of the bell shaped curve of what is average, or what might be thought most typical of one’s sex and still be attractive – if it is balanced by other facial features. Think of the prominent, almost masculine, lower jaws of many fashion models that are deemed attractive and desirable because they are balanced by prominent cheek bones.

In plastic surgery, a typical counterpoise for a prominent nose is to surgically enhance a weak chin, along with a less aggressive rhinoplasty or even skipping the nasal surgery altogether.

Of course, none of these objective attributes can serve as a substitute for feeling comfortable with your own appearance. But if you do want to make a change, understanding how all of these factors work together will help you achieve the best result–whether at the makeup counter or the plastic surgeon’s office.
