The Valentine: The Wedding Pact #4

Denise Grover Swank
E-Buch Text: 77 Seiten
Erschienen bei DGS, 06.02.2016
ISBN 9781939996428
Genre: Sonstiges

Rezension:

“I’m yours, Blair,” he said with a ragged breath. “I’m always yours.”

The Valentine is book number 2.5 in The Wedding Pact series by Denise Grover Swank. This is a very short story checking in on Blair and Garrett to see how they a re doing in married life on their first Valentine’s Day together. If you haven’t read book two of this series, The Player, then this one might not mean as much to you as it is a continuation of the characters featured in that book.


This short book (53 pages) is full of emotion and lets us glimpse into the fears and insecurities a lot of women face as we watch Blair examine hers as she begins to wonder if love is really enough.
You will love the emotional outcome as near tragedy makes Blair finally let down her defenses and grab hold of what she realizes is most important.

Although short, The Valentine is packed with emotion. I loved catching up on Blair and Garrett's relationship. This was such a great treat from Denise Grover Swank! It was a quick read yet fast paced like the full length books. Visiting Blair, Garrett and a few other familiar characters reminded me how much I loved The Wedding Pact series. I thoroughly enjoyed this.

Every Day

David Levithan
Fester Einband: 304 Seiten
Erschienen bei Random House Childrens Books, 28.08.2012
ISBN 9780307931887
Genre: Jugendbuch

Rezension:

“I want love to conquer all. But love can't conquer anything. It can't do anything on it's own. It relies on us to do the conquering on its behalf.”

Every Day by David Levithan is a unique, emotional, and thought-provoking book. It explores what it means to be genderless, without a body, and without a family, and that it is an evocative love story.

The story is about "A" - someone who wakes up in a different person's body and life every single morning. They have always been this way and have come to accept it. Until, that is, they end up inside the body of a boy called Justin and fall for Justin's girlfriend, Rhiannon. Suddenly, A's many lives revolve around locating Rhiannon and spending time with her. Hoping they can be together, and knowing that they can't.

Our main character in this book is never described as male or female. "A" is a being who wakes up every day in a different body. This person is the very definition of "walking a mile in someone else's shoes." Mainly it's because A has never had shoes of his/her own.

The first thing you should know before deciding whether to read this book is that it is wangsty contemporary romance masquerading as paranormal and/or science fiction. You cannot go into the book expecting an explanation of any of the paranormal elements in the book because you won't find any.

When it comes down to it, this book just didn't work for me. I love the idea of it, and Levithan's writing style wasn't the problem. My issues were with the plot and the characters. But I loved how it explored so many aspects of humanity, how we look at others and what makes us who we are.

Beautiful Bitch (The Beautiful Series Book 3)

Christina Lauren
E-Buch Text: 161 Seiten
Erschienen bei Gallery Books, 09.07.2013
ISBN 9781476751726
Genre: Erotische Literatur

Rezension:

"I can function without you. But I don't like being away from you. It feels like you take my home with you when you go."

The novella follows Chloe and Bennett's story after they reconciled in Beautiful Bastard. In this novella we get to see the couple finally picking up the pieces and working on their relationship whilst giving their effort to the company they're working.

This little novella had me from page one. I enjoyed every single minute reading it. Never did I once skim through it.

We get to see where Bennett & Chloe are at a year into their relationship. But we also get all that happened within that year as well, from the time they reunited at the end of book one till present day. They're both still very much in love and so passionate, the steam was super charged!!
Bennett and Chloe are truly equals in their relationship. They're both dedicated to their careers, but are realizing that their love is the most important thing in their lives now. It was so sweet seeing Bennett so enamored with Chloe, that he couldn't take being away from her for even a few hours.

Bennett reaches his breaking point and comes up with a crazy plan but one that he knows will work. Not surprisingly, Chloe is on board. The only problem is not everything wants to cooperate. I love how they both think the same things and come up with similar plans. And I loved how it all worked out.

I definitely will continue reading the series but I'm a little sad it won't be just about them. I can't say this enough. If you haven't read this series yet, you should definitely pick it up!!

Captivated by You (Crossfire) by Sylvia Day (2014-11-18)

Sylvia Day
Sonstige Buchform
Erschienen bei Turtleback Books
ISBN B01K92KTB8
Genre: Sonstiges

Rezension:

"Despite all he'd been though, he had such an amazing capacity to feel and to love. He'd saved me, in so many ways. I was going to do whatever needed to be done to save him, too."

This is the fourth book in this series and continues Gideon and Eva's story than began in Bared To You. Captivated by You proved to be an underwhelming reading experience for me.

Gideon and Eva are back on...then off...then on again. For most of this book I felt like they were just going in circles, rehashing the same old, tired arguments and not getting anywhere. I just feel like this book was stagnant. I was hoping that I'd see some big leaps and bounds in Gideon and Eva's relationship, but there weren't any meaningful developments until the very end. While we do see Ava and Gideon making progress in regards to their relationship, there was no substantial anything that occurred in this book. It just felt flat and redundant throughout. Gideon and Eva's relationship was in a constant loop of insecurities and basically rehashing the same old shit over and over and over again. How is it even possible that NOTHING substantial happened in 368 pages? This could have easily been Entwined with You 2.0, where basically it was all filler and no progression.

Also, I really, really dislike Cary, the extremely dependent BFF, he is constantly whining and complaining ‘bout Eva ignoring him, like a 12-year-old. I don’t like Cary —never have, never will . What a selfish pr*ck he is! Buried deep into his own problems, he doesn’t get that Eva has a life apart from him.

Despite this book's short-comings, I will probably continue this series at some point. This series has lost much of it's luster for me. However, after reading four books, I feel too invested in this series to hang it up now. Much like I can't DNF a book, I have this compulsive need to finish a series if I've read past the first book or two.

Not wonderful, yet, not horrible either. This book is BASICALLY A REPEAT OF BOOK#3.

Entwined With You

Sylvia Day
E-Buch Text: 368 Seiten
Erschienen bei Penguin, 04.06.2013
ISBN 9781405910286
Genre: Romane

Rezension:

“Day One of my life was the day I met you.”

Entwined With You started off right where book #2 ended throwing us right back in the story.

The third book in the Crossfire series, Entwined with You continues the often tumultuous relationship between Gideon Cross, the twenty-eight year-old billionaire and one of the top twenty-five richest people in the world, and Eva Tramell. In this book, Gideon and Eva’s journey continues as they fight their inner demons and nightmares and work together at maintaining and building a functional relationship filled with intense desire, love and commitment.

Entwined with you, just like book 1 and 2, is very much a rollercoaster; Suspensefully told it’s filled with villains, surprises and shockers, but also beautifully depicting an against-all-odds love and of course in true Sylvia Day fashion plenty of sinfully steamy sex scenes. I like the direction she took in book 3. Ms. Day is a master at spinning a story and she has succeeded with artfully tying in events from previous books without making it feel like a synopsis. Though it did not end with the cliff-hanger of all cliff-hangers it had an abrupt ending. But had I known beforehand I would still have read it! And considering everything that has happened it makes sense to have another two books to wrap it all up.

There's a lot to be covered in the next two books and I can't wait!

Holidays with the Walker Brothers (Alluring Indulgence Book 4)

Nicole Edwards
E-Buch Text: 278 Seiten
Erschienen bei Pocket Star, 16.05.2014
ISBN 9781476789217
Genre: Romane

Rezension:

"Just remember, when you're tired of the games, I'll still be here. Because no matter what you think, there is something here. And you won't be able to stop thinking about it anymore than I will."

Holidays with the Walker Brothers was the fourth book in the Alluring Indulgence series by Nicole Edwards.

The book opens with Thanksgiving and moves the reader through the Holiday season with the Walker Family.

1 book, 7 brothers, 2 parents, 1 cousin, 4 significant others, 3 holidays. ALL FEATURED in no particular order, but the whole gang's here!

The sole purpose of the book seemed to be to update us on the couples to date as well as set the stage for the remaining books in the series. I loved getting everyone's perspective for the holidays and their current state of life. It was a great way to refresh my memory on the previous books, prep me for the future and to provide a bridge leading straight to the next book, Ethan.

This was exactly what you would expect from a story about the Walker brothers. It featured everyone, and they all had their point of view throughout the story. Even Mum and Dad had a turn. I really enjoyed the parts that featured Ethan, as he has had me intrigued from the beginning.

This is a must read for fans of this series, but it isn't the place to start. To enjoy this, you need to have read the previous three books.

Bared to You

Sylvia Day
E-Buch Text: 341 Seiten
Erschienen bei Penguin, 28.05.2012
ISBN 9781405910248
Genre: Erotische Literatur

Rezension:

"I want to keep feeling the way I feel when I'm with you. Just tell me what I have to do. And give me some room to screw up. I've never done this before. There's a learning curve."

So much better than that Fifty Shades of Grey. I do get the comparison, but truly this is a MUCH better read. Simply put, this book had the polish that FSoG grossly lacked. (I read FSoG and hated it. I also found it disturbing and only gave it 1 star).

Gideon isn’t a predator. Unlike Grey, Gideon never tries to coerce and manipulate Eva into doing anything that is for his sole pleasure alone. He doesn’t try to coerce and manipulate her into believing his desires should be the only desires that matter.
Eva has about 100+ IQ points on Ana, and can actually converse in an intelligent conversation without all of the “Whoa!”, “Oh, My!” and “Gasp!”                              The writing is great. Tight, edited and well plotted. It is also quite refreshing when compared to the comic book tone of FSoG. So, if I had to choose between the two…Bared to You...without a doubt is my pick!! Why? Because it's 50.0000000000 times BETTER!

This is a sophisticated, provocative, titillating, highly erotic, sexually driven read and is extremely well done. The title fits the book in more ways than one. It not only applies to the sexual nature of the book, but how Eva and Gideon give of themselves to one each other in body, mind, heart and soul. Eva is a smart, self-assured woman who finds herself drawn to the charismatic, enigmatic Gideon. Their relationship is initially based solely on sex, but their connection is so powerful, that they are overwhelmed with the need to be with one another. Most times their dates, rendezvous, encounters…whatever, result in some very primal raw sex.

So, as the book came to its conclusion the story of Eva and Gideon did not. I was satisfied enough that I could leave them for a while, but I need to know how this all plays out.

I can't recommend this book enough, you will run the gambit of emotions while you join Eva and Gideon on their quest to find themselves and each other.

Beautiful Bastard

Christina Lauren
Flexibler Einband: 320 Seiten
Erschienen bei Simon & Schuster, 28.03.2013
ISBN 9781476730097
Genre: Erotische Literatur

Rezension:

“I was starting to see that this wasn't just sex, and it wasn't something just working out of my system. Sex was just the fastest route to the deeper possession that I needed. I was falling in love with her, and falling to fast and hard to easily find any footing.”

Chloe, is Bennett's personal assistant they have a weird relationship. They basically hate each other but when it comes to business they work like a well oiled machine. Until one day... Bennett snaps he's been hiding his lust for Chloe since he first me her, but when she reciprocates they attraction rises to dangerous heights and the sex is positively electric!
And so begins a relationship full of sexual gratification. Heated looks, stolen kisses, and some very delicious groping! These two will have sex wherever they can, if they opportunity makes itself known, then trust me they'll use it!

Mr Bennett Ryan, ruthless business man known for his straight forward ways and as the book title suggests, he has been given the label of 'beautiful bastard'. Cleverly through the dual POV the reader is able to see that there is more than meets the eye with this gorgeous hero, and I enjoyed his character thoroughly.

Chloe Mills, what a welcome surprise, sassy, witty and with one liners that put a smile on my face, she is definitely a female heroine that I greatly enjoyed.

I know there have been some mixed feelings on this book and that the reviews are all over the place. Some people hate it, some love it. I personally was able to connect with the characters within the first thirty percent of the book and I was able to experience them falling in love with each other which in-turn let me fall in love with them and the plot line. The writing in my opinion was stellar.

Overall I think this is a great read if you’re looking for something very steamy and light hearted. There’s no denying that the pages ooze sex, sizzle and steam and the characters in my opinion are funny, sweet and very sexy. This is a page turner and I highly recommend it to those looking for a fast, fun and scorching read.

I'm quite impressed with this series so I will definitely continue the rest!

Forgotten

Cat Patrick
Flexibler Einband: 288 Seiten
Erschienen bei Egmont Childrens Books, 06.06.2011
ISBN 9781405253611
Genre: Sonstiges

Rezension:

“Funny how possibility can lift you. Funny how reality can slam you down.”

London Lane remembers her future the same way we remember our past. And while the average person doesn't 'remember' their future, London doesn't remember her past. Her memories are of the future, but the moment they become the past, they're forgotten. At precisely 4:33am every morning she forgets the day she's just lived and awakens with only what she sees of the future and her daily notes on what's happened in her life. She has to remind herself of the clothes she wore yesterday, the conversations she had, what she needs to do for school, why she's angry at certain people and to remind herself to stay angry at certain people.

But she knows her future. She remembers events that will happen, and people that she’ll meet. But then she meets a boy that she can’t remember, he’s not in her future. Each new day, London meets Luke for the first time, and though her notes tell her how gorgeous he is, she’s never prepared for it. Luke was great. He stayed by London’s side no matter what, and in the end, he was an integral part of London starting to remember her past.

There are several subplots, involving London’s best friend, her father, and a funeral. As London tries to unravel her past, and find out what her mother is keeping from her, the puzzle pieces come together in a rather startlingly, intriguing, brilliant way. Patrick holds all the pieces, giving them away at just the right time to keep the reader on their toes, and slowly let them see the ever brightening picture alongside London.

The premise is actually quite similar to the movie 50 First Dates with Drew Barrymore. I wonder if Cat Patrick got her inspiration or seed for the novel from that movie. In any case, Cat Patrick’s novel is original and amazing and I loved it.

Forgotten is a stirring and extraordinary debut novella that will haunt your dreams and leave you yearning for more. It's a romance that will set your heart aflutter, a mystery that will leave you clutching the pages for answers and a chain of events and emotions that will force you to question your own past and future. It will burrow it's way into your heart and leave you feeling such an emotional attachment to the amazing characters and uniquely sad, yet beautiful, thought-provoking story-line.
