    Summary

    “I’m looking at these numbers and I just can’t in good conscience recommend keeping the skating rink open. In fact, it would actually be preferable to demolish it. Its operating costs are high—far higher than any of your other facilities—and you’re not even breaking even on it. And your report concludes with a request for funds to refurbish it? Frankly, the land would be far more valuable to the city if it were to sell it to a developer. I can put you in touch with—”

    “Over my dead body,” Eric interrupts.

    “Excuse me?”

    “You heard me. You can’t sell my rink.”

    Eric Bittle is the director of the City of Samwell's Parks and Recreation department. He loves everything about his job, including overseeing the city's municipal ice rink, where generations of kids have learned to skate. Unfortunately, a citywide budget crisis has put Eric's proposed rink renovations on hold, and out-of-town auditor Jack Zimmermann is insistent that the best course of action would be to shut it down entirely. Too bad Eric isn't willing to give up his rink without a fight. He's got a plan. And he may just melt the heart of Samwell's iciest auditor along the way.

    Summary

    "The most puzzling addition to their entourage, worse than his ex-girlfriend and the guy she ditched him for, weirder than a child star fresh out of rehab with a brand-new social security number, and more frustrating than a bus-full of teen pop sensations, is Eddie Munson."

    It's the summer of 1988 and Steve is sweating his way through the boys' third (and biggest) national tour, all the while dealing with Robin's new career, Max's creative heel-turn, and also, inexplicably, Eddie Munson.

    Summary

    And the fact was, it had been since before Andi that he and CJ had last slept together. It had been years. Maybe you didn’t ever lose that awareness of your ex-lovers, maybe you always worried at the edges of those relationships even if everything else lay flat and smooth between you.
