Rezension zu "Black Lies" von Alessandra Torre

Black Lies.
Lonechastesoulvor 9 Monaten

"True love makes a person reckless, makes them take risks and make sacrifices. True love tests the boundaries of our person, makes us yearn to be better and fight for the ground we stand on. I will fight for this love. Lie for it. Steal for it. It’s worthy of that."

Black Lies is a story of lies, secrets and betrayals, of unwavering love, loyalty and selflessness. A complete contradiction- but once you read, you’ll get it. As much as it may not seem like it, it’s an beautiful and intense love story above all else. This love story was different than anything I’ve ever read before.

This is the story of heiress, Layana Fairmont, Lana aka Lucky raised in privilege by wealthy parents to become a trophy wife. But instead she cashed in her inheritance and made her own version of the good life by living well and working part time at the charity, Homeless Youth of America, HYA.
At a fundraiser for her charity she meets inventor and CEO of BSX, Brant Sharp and is stricken by his beauty, intelligence and down-to-earth personality. They immediately hit it off feeling an insane attraction and connection. Once they overcome some hurdles they begin dating.
Life is on track moving towards marriage when their world come crashing down. What follows is a story of deceit, trust issues, selfishness, altruism, secrets, pain, and… LIES pushing their lives into a tailspin.

I'm going to be honest. I knew the twist before I started reading the book. I'm not a very trusting reader and with a story set up like this, I just had to know that this was actually a story I'd be okay with. So I found out first. Personally, I felt like knowing in advance made me appreciate the story even more because I knew what to look for and I was able to enjoy the journey rather than worry about the outcome.

The suspense was good, but it did get overwhelming. The romance was cute, but not always sigh-worthy. The writing fantastic, the atmosphere noticeable and rightly adding some complementary effect to the story. The plot did get repetitive from time to time, but was overall well-done.
It is worth reading, which is something I have to admit. There though effectively were scenes I would change to make this whole story more addictive and, really, there should have been more clues or twists as for what Brant’s secret is.

Rezension zu "Hollywood Dirt" von Alessandra Torre

Schön, lustig und prickelnd ...
Svenja-Janevor einem Jahr

Schön, lustig und prickelnd geschrieben, auch wenn ich kein Muttersprachler in englisch bin, war es gut zu lesen.
Eine nette Story, auf die ich durch eine Empfehlung gekommen bin.
Wechselnde Perspektive, auch wenn man nicht immer sofort weiß, aus wessen Sicht man liest, da die Autorin dies nicht (vorher/Kapitelinfo etc.) erwähnt, aber man findet das oft schnell heraus.
Auch wenn ich es mit Unterbrechungen gelesen habe, wollte ich wissen, wie es weitergeht, was ein gutes Zeichen für ein Buch und die Story ist.


*** ACHTUNG - Ab hier können SPOILER enthalten sein.***
Es wurden Fakten zusammengerafft präsentiert, obwohl es kurz vorher hieß, es wäre noch ein Monat Filmzeit. Darüber und über die weitere Entwicklung der Beziehung wurde kein echtes Wort verloren, daher wirkte das etwas lieblos, so als hätte die Autorin nicht mehr genug Zeit oder Lust zum Schreiben eben dieser Zeitspanne gehabt.
*** SPOILER ENDE ***


Aufgrund des zu kurz gehaltenen Endes 1 Stern Abzug, für ein sonst sehr schönes Buch.

Rezension zu "Hollywood Dirt" von Alessandra Torre

City Boy and Country Girl.
Lonechastesoulvor einem Jahr



”This was not a rebound, this was not infatuation, this was the end of this life as he knew it, and the realization hit that even if she didn’t want him, he would never ever find another woman like her, he would never ever get other her.”

Hollywood Dirt is a feel good romance about two people who started off hating each other and ended up falling hard for one another.

Alessandra Torre skillfully tells the story of a small town girl falling for Hollywood’s top hottie. The story is interestingly based on the very real Coca-Cola millionaires. Hollywood’s heartthrob Cole Masten is bringing this Coca-Cola story to the big screen. The filming of this movie will take place in the small, southern town of Quincy, Georgia. Summer Jenkins, our heroine, house sits on an estate with her mother, and has been ignored and politely shunned for the past three years by the whole town.

The mix of city meeting country as Cole falls for Summer and their back and forth, love-hate attraction, is pretty entertaining and so very sexy.

Hollywood Dirt, told from alternating POVs is a hilarious, feel-good read about second chances, about working the cards you were dealt and grasping opportunities when they arise. But ultimately it’s about forgiveness and making peace with one’s past and how, in life, some of the best moments don’t come with a huge price tag, yet have blockbuster written all over.
