Reality TV. Celebutantes. YouTube. Sex Tapes. Gossip Blogs. Drunk Driving. Tabloids. Drug Overdoses. Is this entertainment? Why do we keep watching? What does it mean for our kids? In the last decade, the face of entertainment has changed radically - and dangerously, as addiction specialist Dr. Drew Pinsky and business and entertainment expert Dr. S. Mark Young argue in this eye-opening new book. The host of VH1´s Celebrity Rehab with Dr. Drew and of the long-running radio show Loveline, Pinsky recently teamed with Young to conduct the first-ever study of narcissism among celebrities. In the process, they discovered that a high proportion of stars suffer from traits associated with clinical narcissism - including vanity, exhibitionism, entitlement, exploitativeness, self-sufficiency, authority, and superiority. Now, in The Mirror Effect, they explore how these stars, and the media, are modeling such behavior for public consumption - and how the rest of us, especially young people, are mirroring these dangerous traits in our own behavior. And it explores how YouTube, online social networks, and personal blogs offer the temptations and dangers of instant celebrity to the most vulnerable among us. Informed and provocative, with the warm and empathetic perspective that has won Dr. Drew Pinsky legions of fans, The Mirror Effect raises important questions about our changing culture - and provides insights for parents, young people, and anyone who wonders what celebrity culture is doing to America. 1.

When I caught my girlfriend having sex with another woman, I was so damned angry. We´d been together for so long and she always paraded me around like her lipstick lesbian trophy wife because I´d never slept with a guy. As far as I was concerned there was only one way to get revenge and that meant I wouldn´t be cheating on her with another lesbian. Instead, I was going to have a man and I was going to record a sex tape just to make it worse. It didn´t quite work out that way, though. Instead, I had three guys at once! It was my first sex and my first anal sex all rolled up in one. Warning: This audiobook contains very explicit descriptions of sexual activity and includes rough sex, first sex, rough deepthroat, reluctant semen swallowing, first anal sex, ass to mouth, and more. Only mature adults who won´t find that offensive should listen to this story. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Concha di Pastoro.

Note: This title is best enjoyed after Strength (Mark of Nexus #1) and Courage (Mark of Nexus #2). Cole Blake is more than just a roguish ladies´ man. He´s also a dedicated worker - so dedicated, in fact, that he´s willing to blackmail his boss with a falsified sex tape in order to keep his job. And his proactive efforts don´t end there. After hours, he uses his Dynari abilities to moonlight as a vigilante, keeping his neighborhood safe from drunks, dealers, and would-be thieves. Until a mistake stops him dead in his super-accelerated tracks. Now burdened with the closest thing he´s ever had to a conscience, Cole struggles to justify his once-reckless actions. It´d be all too easy to give in to his darker impulses, especially with ERA making dangerous advances toward their goal of revolution, but embracing that hatred could jeopardize the few relationships he actually cares about - including his pursuit of the saintly Rachel Ranford. No, in order to keep everyone safe, he´ll have to come clean about his warring compulsions and ask for help...before his dark side takes over. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Bryant Sullivan.

Amid the river of metal and glass, a shocking event occurs, leaving those who witnessed it desperately looking for answers, most notably one man and his son, Jake, who captured the event and uploaded it to the Internet for all the world to experience.

As word of the tape leaks out, making her an instant pariah, Sara needs to escape the small town´s persecution of her careless action.
