I'm a city-fied suburban hockey mom who owns more books than I will probably ever manage to read in my lifetime, but I'm determined to try.

<p><a href=" ;amp;qid=1467918718&amp;sr=8-5&amp;keywords=Hawk"><strong>Hawk: Burnout Book 3</strong> </a>by Dahlia West</p>

<p>All time favorite - as in, the one book I would take on a deserted island - simply has to be <a href="" ;><strong>Pride and Prejudice</strong></a> by Jane Austen</p>
<p>But so many others...</p>
<p>Pretty much all of Suzanne Brockmann's <a href=" ;amp;ie=UTF8&amp;qid=1466636330&amp;sr=1-4&amp;keywords=Suzanne+Brockmann">SEAL</a> <a href=" ;amp;ie=UTF8&amp;qid=1466636500&amp;sr=1-1&amp;keywords=suzanne+brockmann+tall+dark+and+dangerous+in+order">books</a> are favs, but specifically <a href="" ;><strong>Out of Control</strong>,</a> <a href="" ;><strong>The Admiral's Bride</strong></a>, and<strong> <a href="" ;>Over the Edge</a></strong>. And <a href="" ;><strong>Flashpoint</strong></a>. And <a href="" ;><strong>Get Lucky.</strong></a></p>
<p>The first four books of the Black Dagger Brotherhood, most notably, <strong><a href="" ;>Lover Awakened</a>&nbsp;</strong>by J.R. Ward.</p>
<p><strong><a href="" ;>Mackenzie's Mountain</a></strong>&nbsp;by Linda Howard</p>
<p><a href="" ;><strong>The Best Man</strong></a> by Kristan Higgins</p>
<p><strong><a href="" ;>Fortune's Pawn</a></strong>&nbsp;by Rachel Bach</p>
<p><strong><a href="" ;>The Turncoat: Renegades of the Revolution </a></strong>by Donna Thorland</p>

<p><strong><a href=" ;amp;ie=UTF8&amp;qid=1466633787&amp;sr=1-1&amp;keywords=The+Outsiders">The Outsiders</a></strong> by S.E. Hinton</p>
<p><a href="" ;><strong>Eleanor and Park</strong></a> and <strong><a href="" ;>Fangirl</a></strong> by Rainbow Rowell. This writer can do no wrong.</p>
<p><a href=" ;amp;ie=UTF8&amp;qid=1466637676&amp;sr=1-1&amp;keywords=Code+Name+Verity"><strong>Code Name Verity</strong> </a>by Elizabeth Wein</p>
<p><strong>The Harry Potter</strong> series by J.K. Rowling</p>
<p><strong>The Little House</strong> books by Laura Ingalls Wilder</p>

<p>Protective heroes, strong heroines, rescue stories, bad boys with hearts of gold, unresolved sexual tension, good writing and snappy, realistic dialogue.</p>

<p>Dirty talk and overly-descriptive sex scenes, too-stupid-to-live heroines, Big Misunderstandings, babies and kids, orgasmic virgins, and body piercings.</p>

<p>Every summer, I enjoy back-to-back all-nighter binge viewings of <em><strong>The Lord of the Rings</strong></em> trilogy (extended diretcor's cut) and the BBC miniseries <em><strong>Pride and Prejudice</strong></em>. I believe that Collin Firth is THE quintessential Mr. Darcy, but I didn't hate Matthew MacFadyen. I've been on the Oprah show. I hoard books and yarn and my dear husband, bless his soul, has never once complained about that. I love the Chicago Blackhawks and find all sports other than ice hockey to be painfully slow and boring. I might agree with Dabney Grinnan that there's never been a better show than Buffy, but I might argue for The West Wing as a hard choice for Desert Isle viewing. After saving my children and pets, I'd probably grab my iPad on the way out of a burning house.</p>
