With one in four teenagers now using e-cigarettes, underage vaping is universally condemned, and the federal government considers it an epidemic. The St. Helena City Council is renewing its push to ban the sale of flavored tobacco products that critics say are causing a public health crisis among kids and producing a new generation of smokers. In January the council told staff to gather information on an ordinance banning the sale of flavored tobacco and investigate a buy-back program to reduce the number of vaping devices in circulation among local youth.
On Tuesday they told staff to take the next steps toward drafting an ordinance. To aid enforcement, the city would establish a tobacco retailer licensing program, with penalties for license-holders who sell flavored tobacco. Helena, opposed an outright ban, arguing that smoking rates among St. Helena eighth-graders are low and local retailers are diligent about not selling to underage customers.
Helena resident Nancy Dervin urged the city to take a strong stance against flavored tobacco products, which she said appeal to kids with fruity flavors and colorful packaging. E-cigarettes contain nicotine, toxic chemicals, heavy metals and fine particulate material, and have been associated with a potentially deadly lung condition called EVALI.
Three St. Helena businesses sell flavored tobacco products like the kind used in e-cigarettes, according to city staff.
A bill that would ban the sale of flavored tobacco products, including menthol-flavored cigarettes, throughout California has passed the State Senate and is working its way through the Assembly.
California already bans the sale of those products to people under the age of In June the Napa City Council held a first reading of an ordinance banning the sale of flavored tobacco in Napa, but before adopting the ordinance the council decided to retool it and bring it back at a future meeting.

Full of themselves, deceiving, back stabbing. Luke was perfect to me. I can't imagine a teenager or woman in her early 20s to agree. He wasn't b I loved certain aspects of this book. He wasn't bossy or dramatic or verbally abusive. He was everything Elle needed. He was the balm to her stormy soul.
I hate indecisive heroines. Top thing to dislike in a book. Surprisingly the "love triangle" didn't bother me. Because I could see what Elle couldn't see all along. As Luke so truthfully stated, she just wanted to live in her memories and guilt. It was a save for me! View 2 comments. Jun 25, Bridger Bitches rated it really liked it Shelves: sophie , arc.
I fell absolutely head over heels in love with this book. I am a sucker for a Hollywood romance and this one was delicious. Elle is such a complex women and I love the fact that she is 35! It is so refreshing to read about characters closer to my own age.
Elle carries some serious baggage from her past relationship with Troy and Luke is just a breath of fresh air. This is a love triangle, but it was done very well. All parties involved knew about the other parties involved.
It was real. I will a I fell absolutely head over heels in love with this book. I will admit that I had my heart set on one gentleman the entire time and I was never swayed to the other side but in all honesty I never knew who she would choose. I loved that about this book.
It was well written, honest and so easy to connect with. Plus it takes place in Hollywood so you know there will be some behind the scenes drama you just cant resist. I loved the supporting characters and would love to see a spin off with a couple of them.

There were times I was hoping Elle would choose one way and than I would be completely swayed another.

I am one who hopes that love from the past can shine through but a new love can put you somewhere completely different.
Troy is such a different character than Luke. I found some great qualities with both Troy and Luke. There was also some qualities I didn't care for in both men. In the end I can see why Elle choice won her heart! I love the story between all the characters. Melissa Brown book had me hooked all the way to end! Jun 06, Cara Nicole rated it really liked it. Elle has herself in quite the dilemma, two men, who should she choose? The one that got away from her past, or the young new "it" star from her show.
The ups and downs made my head spin a few times in this book, but overall it was an adorable read. The ending was awesome, it just took awhile to get there.
I loved the storyline, it was a novel read and the characters were fantastic. I hope there will be a spinoff with some of the characters, I want them all to have their own happy ending.

May 30, Karen rated it really liked it Shelves: favorites , strong-female-lead , hunky-actor-mc. ARC from NetGalley for honest review. The story of a strong MC , Elle, and her interesting dilemma was relatable to me. I love the way it played out as the capacity to love two men when only one is your soul mate but working through your own issues which Elle did realize at a point where I wanted to stand up and applaud. I say" great times " reading all the angles and complexities of the story and the rich characters.
I hope Whitney gets her own story as she was truly fun and a true friend. Jun 29, Three Chicks rated it it was amazing.
There is always the perfect amounts of enough. There is just enough insta-love, just enough sexy time, just enough love and emotion.
I love that it is just the right amount. Too much insta-love and it makes me cringe, too much sexy time and I want to roll my eyes, and too much love and emotion and it makes it seem unrealistic- and vice versa with not enough. I want to believe that this world exists, and Melissa did a great job! Eleanor Riley is on top of the world, she has written a series of bestselling books- that have been made into a drama series on television.
And it should seem like enough, television and work family- she has in spades, but what she really wants is her own family. I sound like her best friend Whit- who I loved by the way! He is such a fantastic character in this story- Melissa really does some great characterization with him. At first you feel like he may just be into Elle because he wants the role- or he would do anything to get his way to the top.
He was the love of her life and vice versa- or so she thought. And there goes Melissa again, making me fall in love with Troy too. And that is the power of writing, you get so wrapped up in the story you forget that one of the guys is her past, one is her present- and both could be her future.
So who does Elle choose- guess you will have to read and find out. They never make me freak out, or wonder where she is going with it- because I ultimately figure it out, and swoon the whole way through.
