For some the game of love and college seems rigged. After a few tough losses they resort to doing things they thought they would never do to turn their challenges into championships…

Ciara and Xander each came to Aurbor Grove University (AGU) with the perfect game plan. She would score another chance at finally living up to her college dreams and the high academic expectations set by her mother. He would become the star quarterback and hometown hero he was groomed to be. Yet they find themselves entangled in drama—from the exes who refuse to live without them to the financial struggles that make it seem like college is meant only for the elite to win.

Their friendship has a rocky start, but as the semester passes along they find that their most peaceful moments are spent with each other. Will the pains of the past and pressures on the fields of love and learning squash all hope for their future?

Exes and O’s is a drama-filled, romantic follow-up to Don’t Let Me Fall.

“…the author creates a richly believable atmosphere of college life—the parties, the academic pressures, the swings between tedium and debauchery, the struggles of students to forge their own identities as they move into adulthood, the emotional baggage of ex-lovers and new attachments, etc. (Poole also refreshingly works in an element of real-world, old-fashioned financial concerns, an aspect usually left out of campus fiction.) The action of the book takes place independently from its predecessor, although the two novels are best read in sequence; together, they present a warmly convincing tale of 21st-century university life…” ~KIRKUS REVIEWS

Faith Beats Fear blends short fiction stories with a 21-day devotional to help you fight fear with power, love, and a sound mind. An economic recession’s impact on a small community serves as the backdrop for this story collection that explores love, family, and the pursuit of happiness.  Whether fighting for unfulfilled dreams, a successful business, or a chance at true romance, the formula for victory remains the same: ACT IN FAITH. This unique compilation of inspirational tales, scripture, and tips is a quick read, but will stick with you beyond the last page, encouraging you to choose faith instead of fear.

I absolutely love this book. I was going through a tough time when I found it really hard to believe. Similar to the author, my family always asks “where is your faith?” However, my faith slips sometimes and it can be tough to get back on track. This book suggested a strategy for getting back to my faith that was so simple, yet profound. I found this book relatable, honest and encouraging. I have recommended it to my Bible study group. ~Amazon Review
