He's not giving up his family without a fight
James Calhoun has never been able to resist Mara Tyler, or her knack for mischief. Her reputation as a reckless teenager drove Mara from their hometown. So Slippery Rock is the last place James ever expected to see her, and Mara's timing couldn't be worse. With the upcoming election for sheriff, she threatens the squeaky-clean image James needs to win. Because Mara has brought with her the result of their steamy affair: his two-year-old son, Zeke. After the initial shock, James is determined to have both his family and career. He just needs to convince Mara that her home is where it's always been. With him.
Top 5 Rebel Songs
5. Pink Floyd, Another Brick in the Wall: I think my love of this song comes directly from my dad’s disdain for it. He was a school teacher, and took great offense to a chorus of ‘we don’t need no education’…which, of course, meant I just had to love it. It helped that one of my older brother’s friends (who I thought was quite cute) used to play it while he was working on his old beater car. Sans shirt.
4. The Who, My Generation: Although some people say this one is too pop-y to be a real ‘rebel’ song…The Who’s song is very much about rebellion, about standing up for your beliefs, and about being open to change.
3. Bob Marley, Buffalo Soldier: Some would say Get Up, Stand Up is his best rebel song but I disagree. Although that is a fab song. My favorite, though, is Buffalo Soldier. It’s a little more angry, to me, but so very direct, and to the point that sometimes you have to rebel. Sometimes, you have to fight for yourself.
2. Twisted Sister, We’re Not Gonna Take It: Seriously, this song was on repeat (at least in my head) during my pre-teen years. I didn’t have much to rebel against, but it sure felt nice to scream along with the music…and, you know, take some 80s-style make-up tips from Dee Snider.
1. Billy Joel, We Didn’t Start the Fire: It’s a little pop-y, sure, but I like how Billy Joel runs down the list of so many horrible things that happened in the 20th century..and then goes into the ‘but it’s not our fault’ hook of ‘we didn’t start the fire, it was always burnin’ since the world’s been turnin’”.
