"Drive Me Crazy" by Eric Jerome Dickey.
Dutton Books, fiction hardcover, 355 pp. $25.00.
After his blockbuster holiday novel, "Naughty or Nice," New York Times best-selling author Eric Jerome Dickey is serving up his new novel with style, sexiness, and a bit of grit. "Driver" is an ex-con trying to make his life right but who shares an expensive secret and a past affair with his boss' wife — a woman who is nothing but trouble. Dickey's rich characters jump off the page, making readers feel as if they are present in the hustle-filled pool hall, the bedroom, and the Lincoln Town Car that Driver chauffeurs his wealthy and notorious clients around in. Dickey's millions of readers will be happy to see the reappearance of a femme fatale from "Thieves' Paradise," who adds spice and surprises every time she turns up. This is Dickey writing at his best — a fast-paced novel of raw emotions, softened as always with his incomparable humor and characters you will always remember.
"He-Motions: Even Strong Men Struggle" by T.D. Jakes.
Putnam Publishing Group, nonfiction hardcover, 323 pp. $19.95.
T. D. Jakes has helped millions of women discover the glorious truth of who they are. His bestseller "The Lady, Her Lover and Her Lord" was a groundbreaking look at a woman's most important relationships — with God, with the man in her life, and with herself — and was the first step toward hope and healing for women across the nation.
Now Bishop Jakes brings his unique perspective to this revealing look into the heart and mind of a man. Men feel the pressure of fulfilling many roles in life: husband, father, son, businessman, and leader. Now Bishop Jakes comes to their aid with this guidebook to help every man understand his own emotional inner workings, and to offer biblically inspired direction toward being the man God wants him to be.
Practical, inspirational, and refreshingly honest, "He-Motions" is also the ultimate source for women who seek to comprehend and care for the men in their lives. It will help them decode men's often-baffling behavior and will offer eye-opening insights that will bring greater intimacy and healing to their relationships.
"He-Motions" will bring clarity and hope to men and help them strengthen their relationships with themselves, with the women in their lives, and ultimately, with their God. It is the book that millions of men and women have been waiting for.
