L Histoire des Sous V tements Masculins
Si à une certaine époque la mode masculine, et celle des sous-vêtements en particulier, était réservée à une élite, elle tend aujourd’hui à se démocratiser, preuve manifeste de l’évolution de notre société. L’esthétisme du corps tant prisé par les Grecs semble retrouver une place prépondérante dans l’univers masculin. Miroir de l’évolution des moeurs, l’histoire des sousvêtements souligne également le ballet incessant d’emprunts qui existe entre la mode féminine et la mode masculine. Les dessous se camouflent, s’exhibent, s’allongent et se raccourcissent, instaurant un jeu entre l’interdit d’alors et la mode d’aujourd’hui, et dénoncent de fait l’aveu que pouvait trahir, autrefois, un simple vêtement.

He’s exacting, blunt, inconsiderate—and completely irresistible. A Beautiful Bastard. Bennett has returned to Chicago from France to take a vital role in his family’s massive media business.

With a famous NHL player for a stepbrother, Violet Hall is well acquainted with the playboy reputation of many a hockey star. She isn't interested in legendary team captain Alex Waters or his pretty, beat-up face and rock-hard six-pack abs. When Alex inadvertently obliterates Violet's misapprehension regarding the inferior intellect of hockey players, he becomes much more than just a hot body with the face to match. Suffering from a complete lapse in judgment, Violet discovers just how good Alex is with the hockey stick in his pants. Violet believes her night of orgasmic magic with Alex is just that: one night. But Alex starts to call. And text. And email and send extravagant-and quirky-gifts. Suddenly, he's too difficult to ignore, and nearly impossible not to like. The problem is, the media portrays Alex as a total player, and Violet doesn't want to be part of the game.

I hate my life. Actually, I hate pretty much everything. That's until I meet the kid next door. Indi-freakin'-ana. My dislike for her is instant. From the moment I lay eyes on her, she ignites something within me. She makes me feel things I thought I was incapable of feeling. I don't like it, not one bit. When she looks at me with her big, beautiful, haunting green eyes, it's like she can see into the depths of my soul. It freaks me the hell out. She's like sunshine and rainbows in my world of gloom and doom. I hate sunshine and rainbows. **** I'm Indiana Montgomery. My friends call me Indi. Despite losing my mum at the age of six, I have a wonderful life and great friends. My dad more than makes up for the fact that I only have one parent. I'm his little girl, the centre of his world.

Help him find the light that I know is buried somewhere within his darkness, but he won't have a bar of it. He's warned me time and time again to stay away, but I can't. I'm drawn to him for some reason. He's always referring to himself as a bastard. That may be true, but to me, he's more like a beautifully misunderstood bastard.
