Hayden has no idea about being a dad, he barely knows how to take care of himself. When Hollywood Mannies sends James to help, he thinks things will fall into place immediately. What he doesn't expect is that while things with Violet get better, his personal feelings for his manny only grow complicated.James Everett is the complete opposite of Hayden. He's sweet, geeky, down to earth and his love for children has made him one of the most sought-after nannies in Los Angeles.

She's also troubled by the sudden death of her mother and being thrown into a whole new world she never knew about. She warms to James quickly but doesn't seem to want to know her father.

When a man from Violet's past threatens to destroy the world Hayden and James have created for her, questions are raised. Hayden must navigate his newfound fatherhood and do what he can to protect the little girl he'd do anything for. Even if that means breaking his heart in the process. Can Hayden really have his career, his daughter and a man to love by his side? And can James really put his heart on the line for a man who's afraid to love him in public?

Mit kleinen Diebstählen und viel Liebe versucht Skeetah, die neugeborenen Welpen seiner Pitbull-Hündin China durchzubringen. Randall will Basketballprofi werden, aber zugleich müssen er und Esch sich um Junior, den Jüngsten, kümmern, dem wie allen die Mutter fehlt, die bei seiner Geburt gestorben ist. Da merkt die Fünfzehnjährige, dass sie schwanger ist – von Randalls bestem Freund, der mit einer anderen zusammenlebt. Wem kann man sich anvertrauen, wenn kaum einer für sich selbst sorgen kann? Und doch stehen die Geschwister, wortlos und mit kleinen Gesten, unverbrüchlich füreinander ein. Versuchen, ohne Geld Vorräte anzulegen, mit Treibholz das Haus sturmfest zu machen.

To truly know God, this must become our life’s driving desire as well… our Soul Obsession. And when we fall obediently in step with God, we’ll see Him perform miracles through us to rescue people and give them new life. In his powerful new book, internationally known author Nicky Cruz shares powerful personal stories of faithful obedience, even in the midst of difficult circumstances–including the amazing story of his mother’s deathbed conversion and healing. You, too, can move past doubts, understand both the natural and supernatural worlds, and develop a faith that can move any mountain, no matter how high or wide or difficult. “Do we truly understand the power we have at our fingertips? Do we grasp the significance of the message that we bring to a lost world? Do we comprehend how easily evil can be beaten and revoked by simply opening ourselves up to the moving of the Holy Spirit among us? Do we know what God is capable of doing among us? “If you want to change the world, begin by letting God change you. By letting the passion of Jesus become your passion. By letting the Holy Spirit be your only guide and mentor, every step, every minute of the day. By allowing God to set your heart on fire with a Soul Obsession!”–Nicky Cruz From the Trade Paperback edition.
