Summary

“Bear Grylls is a veritable superhero….The former UK Special Forces paratrooper has braved the world’s harshest environments.” —Hampton Sides, Outside Magazine 
“Bear Grylls is one tough, crazy dude.” —Washington Post 
THE THRILLING #1-BESTSELLING MEMOIR BY THE ADVENTURE LEGEND AND STAR OF NBC'S RUNNING WILD WITH BEAR GRYLLS  
Bear Grylls has always sought the ultimate in adventure. Growing up on a remote island off of Britain's windswept coast, he was taught by his father to sail and climb at an early age. Inevitably, it wasn't long before the young explorer was sneaking out to lead all-night climbing expeditions. 
As a teenager at Eton College, Bear found his identity and purpose through both mountaineering and martial arts. These passions led him into the foothills of the mighty Himalayas and to a karate grandmaster's remote training camp in Japan, an experience that soon helped him earn a second-degree black belt. Returning home, he embarked upon the notoriously grueling selection course for the British Special Forces to join the elite Special Air Service unit 21 SAS—a journey that would push him to the very limits of physical and mental endurance. 
Then, disaster. Bear broke his back in three places in a horrific free-fall parachuting accident in Africa. It was touch and go whether he would walk again, according to doctors. However, only eighteen months later, a twenty-three-year-old Bear became one of the youngest climbers to scale Mount Everest, the world's highest summit. But this was just the beginning of his many extraordinary adventures. . . . 
Known and admired by millions as the star of Man vs. Wild, Bear Grylls has survived where few would dare to go. Now, for the first time, Bear tells the story of his action-packed life. Gripping, moving, and wildly exhilarating, Mud, Sweat, and Tears is a must-read for adrenaline junkies and armchair explorers alike.

    Playmaker, a 36,000-word novella, was previously released as part of the Seduced by the Game Cancer Charity Collection in 2016..  
     
    Derek Caulton is well-known for his exceptional speed and skill on the ice. His natural ability to read the game and create scoring chances has made him a valuable playmaker for the Baltimore Banners, but his skill off the ice is a little different. Coming from a world of privilege with a devilish charm and fun-loving spirit, responsibility isn't something Derek's ever had to worry about. And he's not accustomed to working for what he wants. That all changes after a single encounter with Bridget Lloyd. 
      
    Fiercely independent and entirely too outspoken, Bridget learned early in life how to work--and fight--for what she wants. After struggling with the loss of her mother at an early age, she's worked her way through college with the goal of becoming a social worker who specializes in working with children. As a member of the Banner's Ice Crew, she's familiar with Derek's play on and off the ice and wants nothing to do with the irresponsible, fun-loving player--until a minor accident throws them together. 
      
    Can a one-night encounter really change the course of two lives? And when the tables are turned, can one stubborn woman teach the fun-loving playmaker that responsibility isn't a four-letter-word and sometimes it's what happens behind the scenes that matters most?

    For Dillon Frayser, a rising star for The Baltimore Banners hockey team, life has come easy. A solid childhood, a happy family, a natural talent for playing the game he loves. The only thing missing is the degree he promised his parents he would get soon after he was drafted. If he could just force himself to focus on carbon atoms and organic chemistry, he wouldn't have to worry about squeezing in embarrassing tutoring sessions between a busy schedule filled with practices and games. 
    Maggie Andersen dreads meeting her new student but she needs the money that tutoring will provide. That doesn't mean she's willing to put up with the anticipated antics of an arrogant brainless jock. When she finally meets Dillon, he turns out to be the exact opposite of what she expected: smart, funny, driven, and humble. Maggie soon finds herself letting her guard down and discovering a different kind of chemistry. 
    Will the tutoring sessions lead to something more for the mismatched pair? Or is this nothing more than a one-timer for the sexy hockey player?
