Can a middle-aged, married woman find happiness with a younger man?
When a married woman in her mid-thirties, and a younger man who is engaged to be married become infatuated with each other, they have to do something about it. Was it Cookie's need to find the love she wasn't getting from her husband that initially interested her in Gene? Was it his girlfriend's indifferent attitude toward sex that caused him to become obsessed with the need to make love to his exceptionally attractive neighbor?
It doesn't take long for Cookie and Gene to turn their mutual desires into the most explosive sex either has ever known. And although Cookie is willing to leave her husband for him, Gene is faced with a dilemma. Not only does he not want to break up her family, but he feels obligated to marry Lorraine because he took her virginity. Nevertheless, that doesn't stop them from sneaking off to express their promised undying love for the other as often as they can. But can they stay together? How long can they keep getting away with what they have been doing?

From their first kiss, through the obstacles that must be climbed, and the heartaches that plague them, this story tells of a love that shouldn't have begun. So why did it begin? Can Cookie carry out her threat never to talk to him again if he gets married? Can Gene stop loving her after he is married to an unfaithful wife?

Some Music Is Inherently Bad—But People Can Be Convinced Otherwise

Artistic appreciation is a deeply subjective process, perhaps the most essentially personal thing that humans do. But are there some explanations for why we like what we do? Why, for instance, does a particular song get popular? Some of it has to do with the quality of the music—and by quality, I mean that there’s something about the music itself the resonates with people and makes them want to listen to it.  One thing that people seem to like in music is when it addresses themes we care about—particularly songs that involve romance. There is a debate over what kind of meaning is conveyed by

Love Can Make You Smarter

Love is supposed to make you stupid. We’re used to seeing the lover as a mooning fool, blind to his lover’s faults and the goings-on of the outside world, or even as a person who has lost all sense of rationality or propriety, driven to a kind of madness. There’s science to back this up: Love has been shown to decrease brain activity in areas associated with memory, long-term planning, learning, and abstract thought, and psychologists have found a correlation between love and irrational and obsessive behaviors. However, as with most human emotions, there are two sides to this love story. Bein
