Tot ce vrea ea este prezentul.
Însă viitorul îi rezervă o surpriză... 

New York Times bestseller
Jocelyn Butler a fugit ani întregi de trecutul său. Însă bărbatul seducător pe care îl cunoaşte o va dezbrăca de toate... secretele.
 
Acum patru ani, Jocelyn Butler şi-a lăsat în urmă trecutul dureros şi a plecat din Statele Unite în Scoţia, pentru a lua totul de la capăt. 

S-a hotărât să-şi îngroape suferinţa şi să meargă înainte fără a se mai implica în nicio relaţie.

Recenzie:

"Pe Strada Dublin" este un roman emoţionant care te învaţă că nu trebuie să te temi să iubeşti din nou. O altă lectie importantă pe care o primim este aceea că, uneori, prietenii pot deveni familia ta atât timp cât ai inima deschisă şi sufletul pregătit pentru o nouă şansă...

"Pe Stradă Dublin" a fost una dintre cele mai bune lecturi ale anului 2013 şi trebuie să felicit Editura Trei pentru achiziţionarea şi publicarea acestui titlu pe piaţă românească. În opininia mea, Joss, eroina romanului, reprezintă una dintre cele mai puternice reprezentate ale sexului frumos, dar care are coloană vertebrală şi nu se teme să-şi exprime opinia în orice privinţă. Sincer, această caracteristică a devenit atât de rară în noile apariţii din ultima vreme...

Nu am nimic cu "Twilight" sau "Fifty Shades", am citit ambele serii, de fapt "Twilight" mi-a deschis apetitul pentru fantasy şi astfel, am descoperit noi orizonturi în lumea lecturii, dar sincer, se pare că deja a apărut un tipar general ca personajul central feminin să fie timidă şi inocenta, mai mult sau mai puţin, iar eroul- problematic şi distant.

Deşi se păstrează o parte dintre aceste caracteristici- prin prezenţa unui erou foarte protector, obsedat după control- eroina nu este doar o floricică lipsită de apărare, care se îmbujorează uşor, dimpotrivă este o femeie sigură pe ea, care este conştientă că este atractivă şi nu se teme de nimeni.

În incipit, cunoaştem o adolescenţă inocentă şi plină de viaţă care studiază împreună cu cea mai bună prietenă, Drew, şi încearcă să nu ia în condiderare atenţia pe care o primeşte de la băiatul de care este atrasă prietenă ei. În acel moment, îşi face simţită apariţia conducerea şcolii însoţită de poliţie şi asistenţă socială, care îi dezvăluie un adevăr cutremurător legat de părinţii şi surioară ei- aceştia au murit într-un accident de maşină...

Astfel ajungem la ipoteza, construită din faptul că Joss se mută într-o nouă locuinţa, pe stradă Dublin, sau cel puţin îşi doreşte să se mute, acest fapt fiind condiţionat de reuşita să se înţelegă cu chiriaşa acelui apartament, Ellie Carmichael. În timp ce se pregătea să ocupe un taxi, cunoaşte un bărbat atractiv,deşi la pprima vedere, el nu constituie genul de bărbat care ar atrage-o din ăunct de vedere fizic , sigur pe el, de fapt chiar puţin arogant şi care adoră să flirteze, ea constiuind ţintă principală. Deşi face faţă cu brio atacurilor lui şi reuşeşte să se descurce excelent cu Ellie, Joss va fi pusă curând în faţa unei mari provocări: fratele atractiv, foarte protector şi aflat într-o relaţie este nimeni altul decât Costumul din taxi, mai exact Braden... Carmichael, iar prima întâlnire, cu prilejul căruia fac cunoştinţă şi află întreagă situaţie, este destul de... interesantă... şi hazlie pentru cititori.

Atracţia dintre cei doi eroi este de necontestat, totuşi cei doi încearcă să-i reziste şi metodele prin care se opun au fost destul de diverse şi amuzante, cel puţin din perspectiva mea ca cititoare. Una dintre aceste metode ar fi momentul în care Braden le prezintă pe 'partenerele lui', precum şi momentul în care încearcă să o facă geloasă pe Joss, folosindu-se de soţia unuia dintre partenerii lui de afaceri, dar, bineînţeles că şi Joss ripostează şi, astfel ajungem la situaţiile haioase, tensionate şi pasionale, pentru că atunci când cei doi se întâlnesc ies, întotdeauna, scântei.

O altă situaţie încurcată şi încărcată de tensiune, comic de situaţie este aceea dintre Ellie şi Adam, prietenul cel mai bun al lui Braden, o situaţia ce se aseamănă destul de mult cu cea a lui Braden şi Joss, dar de data această, cel care se opune existenţei unui viitor al acelei relaţii este Adam.

Oricum, laitmotivul prezent în ambele situaţii pare să fie iubirea imposibilă datorită demonilor din trecut, încercarea de a ascunde sub preş traumele psihologice şi dreptul la o a două şansă.

Niciodată nu trebuie să ne ascundem problemele şi să ne prefacem că totul este în regulă atunci când, în mod evident nu suntem, iar acest fapt îl va constata Joss şi, împreună cu psihologul ei, dar mai ales cu ajutorul lui Braden şi Ellie, ea va reuşi să-şi vindece rănile sufleteşti şi să găsească puterea de a merge mai departe, în ciuda trecutului aventuros şi drumul către auto-distrugere pe care se află anterior, iar teama şi obsesia completă pentru control a lui Braden va fi impulsul de care avea nevoie pentru a lua decizia corectă.

Da, dragii mei! Braden are şi el proprii lui demoni, datorită unei trădări din trecut, precum şi a abandonului părinţilor săi, abandon nu fizic, căci atât tatăl lui cât şi mama lui s-au jucat de-a părinţii în diferite momente ale vieţii lui Braden, dar niciunul nu a fost capabil să-i ofere căldură părintească şi un cuvânt de consolare atunci când acesta a avut cea mai mare nevoie. Singura lui salvare a constituit-o familia Nichols, care a fost mereu alături de el.

Naraţiunea se realizează la persoană întâi din perspectiva lui Joss, iar autoarea reuşeşte să exprime într-un mod unic, inegalabil, lupta interioară între dorinţa de a merge mai departe şi de a fugi, lupta interioară datorată instinctului de auto-conservare, precum şi a tuturor anilor de suferinţă în tăcere...

Caracterizarea personajelor:

Joss- personajul principal feminin al acestei poveşti, precum şi naratoarea acţiunii- este faţă distanţă, care reuşeşte cu precizie şi experienţă îndelungată să-şi ascundă sentimentele şi trăirile sufleteşti, uneori chiar de ea însăşi. Datorită anilor zbuciumaţi din adolescenţă, ea are experientă şi maturitate de partea ei, chiar dacă vârstă ei nu o arată- având doar douăzeci şi trei de ani-, ea este genul de faţă care nu suportă să trăiască din banii altei persoane, lucru dovedit prin refuzul repetat de a se atinge de banii părinţilor ei, deşi ar fi putut să o ajute în diferite situaţii de criză de-a lungul timpului.

Este atractivă, deşi nu este perfect conştientă de atracţia pe care o exercită asupra bărbaţilor din jurul ei, fapt remarcat atât de Braden cât şi de Ellie. Deşi nu pare a fi genul de femeie care l-ar atrage pe Braden Carmichael, temperamentul ei, precum şi frumuseţea ei exotică reuşeşte să-l cucerească irevocabil, astfel încât cei doi pornesc o relaţie pasională, bazată pe atracţie şi sex, nicidecum pe sentimente, desigur lucrurile se complică în acest timp....

Braden Carmichael- scoţian- dap, am de gând să folosesc doar acest cuvânt pentru a-l descrie. Totuşi, va pot dezvălui că este un bărbat intens, pasional, uneori arogant, alteori pur şi simplu încrezător. Desigur, având în vedere toate fetele care s-au aruncat la picioarele lui şi au acceptat fiecare regulă impusă de acesta, fără a protesta, este de la sine înţeles că nu acceptă cu uşurinţă un refuz, dar nu spun acest lucru în sensul negativ, doar că este mult mai încrezător şi mai tenace decât ceilalţi eroi al altor romane de acest gen. Pe de altă parte, ceilalţi eroi nu s-au confruntat cu o partenera precum Joss...

Adam şi Ellie se confruntă cu multe obstacole dar iubirea lor nu cedează nici datorită timpului, nici datorită distanţei, nici datorită personalităţii lor...

Este genul acela de cuplu, care într-un fel sau altul reuşesc să-şi găsească drumul unul către celălalt. De asemenea, povestea lor este dezvăluită mai pe larg în nuvela 'Until Fountain Bridge', în care descoperim cât de strâns legată este relaţia lor, strânsă printr-o prietenie şi relaţie de loialitate reciprocă.

Verdict Final- un român despre peietenie, loialitate, iubire, dar şi traume, pierderi şi dreptul de a merge mai departe. O poveste despre viaţă şi moarte, în care primim o lecţie importantă: viată este scurtă, bucură-te de fiecare clipă ca şi cum ar fi ultima.


Nota mea: 10/5.

“I know you love me, Jocelyn, because there’s no fucking way I can be this much in love with you, and not have you feel the same way. It’s not possible.”



“Babe, nice lingerie is for seducing a man. I’m already fucking seduced.”



“You’re good with the words, I’ll give you that.”
“I’m good with my hands. Will you let me give you that?”



“I feel like I'm missing something really important when you're gone. So important I don't feel like myself. I've never felt like someone was mine before. But you're mine, Jocelyn. I've known that from the moment we met. And I'm yours. I don't want to be anyone else's, babe.”

Unbearable Guilt
Breathe Again #2
By: Emma Grayson

Releasing Feb 24th, 2014



Blurb

Kane Archer hasn’t always been full of rage or torment, he hasn’t always hated life or himself, and he hasn’t always lived in a world riddled with so much guilt that it consumed him. There was a time when his life was complete, when he smiled and laughed, made electrifyingly passionate love, and breathed happiness.

Until the unthinkable took it all away from him.

Now, still reeling from his fiancée’s death two and a half years later, and with the promise he made to find the men who killed her and bring them to justice –regardless of the cost– Kane returns to Camden, the one place he swore he’d never go back to.

Numb, afflicted by guilt, and haunted by the events that led to Aimee’s death, the last thing Kane wanted was to meet someone he felt connected to; who made him feel again.

As Kane gets closer to the ones responsible for Aimee’s death, he’s thrown a curve ball when he discovers a secret so devastating it not only rocks his world, but threatens to destroy any chance at happiness.

Whitney Jareau packed up her life and left everything behind when tragedy struck her family. Finally able to get away from her persistent and domineering family who wanted her to do the one thing she couldn’t, she found her solitude in Camden.

Now, two years later, her family wants her home and will go to any lengths to get her there. With her heart on her sleeve for Kane Archer, a man so gorgeous it hurts to see the pain he carries, Whitney fights her family and refuses to return home to carry out their wishes.

Can Whitney stand strong without succumbing to the demands of her family Can Kane let Aimee and the past go in order to move forward with the woman who brought him back to life?
Or will he walk away from her and only ever feel the burden of UNBEARABLE GUILT

Review: The Plan by Qwen Salsbury

Review: The Plan by Qwen Salsbury

Synopsis:

Day of Employment: 359
11:05 a.m
Location: Cubicles outside Canon's office.
Co-workers: Betting on how long Canon's new PA will last.
Me: No doubts. Ms. Gum-smacker won't last the day. I need to place my bet.
Manolo Blahnik's New Fall Shoes: Mine. As soon as Madeline hands over my winnings.

Emma Baker has never spoken a word to Alaric Canon, nor has he to her. But she's studied him every day across the office tundra for almost a year. Canon is hard and fierce, terrifying and beautiful. He's also the most stern, unforgiving person Emma has ever seen. Emma's co-workers run abetting pool for Personal Assistant terminations. There's a

separate pot for the day one leaves without crying. Not likely... Canon made a former Navy SEAL cry.

He has high standards and low tolerance. Everyone knows it. Everyone stays away. Everyone who can, that is. Except Emma. She can't look away. Alaric Canon is the single most attractive man she's ever seen.

Canon has never noticed her. Not once in almost a year. She's not even a blip on his radar. But she will be. His radar will be blipless no more.
It is a goal. Emma has a plan.



Review (Roxana's Thoughts):



Yes Sir! I'm still riding the Qwen Salsbury wave...

How can I start this review... hmm, let me think... oh, how about I start gushing on and on about the her's name- Alaric Canon...isn't he special, but you don't know that yet... eh, let me tell how special he really is... he's controlling (like pants down controlling), he's loyal (even if the others don't know that about him... yet), he's demanding ( like making a former Navy SEAL  cry), he's... perfect...

In the start of the book, we have Emma and her collegues-they have a betting pool and make. money from the bets they place on how long the new PA will last. Will you refuse this opportunity to make some money and so you can sustain your little hobby -like boying shoes?
Well, I would boy books from the bucks, but Emma loves her shoes, but do you know what she loves more than that?
I tell you what, or maybe I should say who... it's Alaric.

Emma is law student and she's working while preparing her exams and on her first day working there she's crushing hard on Alaric, another lawyer who works there, but he's a control freak and he's not so shy that he can't let the others see his disdain for incompetence, but that's where the real funny moments begins...

Alaric, even through he's complicated and doesn't seem to notice Emma, he's her dirty little secret because she's crushing hard on him when all the others are terrified of him and they're laughing behind his back on how long his new PA will last. I'll admit that I find this part of the story very amusing and deliciosly relaxing. So from the start of the story we have a betting going on about a cute but stupid PA and even though Emma should stay away from PA's problem, she's trying to help her, but that girl doesn't even let her because she's thinking that she's the God's Gift to men's kind and, obviously, she's fired.

So, it begins Emma's chance to be a blip on Alaric's radar and she isn't afraid to put him in his place... but it's a long journey, one that implies to travel together for a signing of a important contract and the appearence of old 'friends', but Emma is stuborn and she doesn't give so easily on Alaric, even though he's trying to stay as far away from her....

One of the original aspects is how the story is written- because we know all the inconsecvential but also the most important details of the story- the story being related on how every hour or day has been going on, without making a scene very descriptive... just simple, like in the synopsis.

Characters:

Emma-she's stuborn, smart and she knows everything is possible if she really want it-she's also the story teller. She had a normal life until Alaric, from that moment all she can think about is him, but she knows that he isn't going to ask her to marry him or at least to ask her out and so it begins the Plan...

Alaric-he's a troubled soul, with more secrets, even though Emma has been studying his every move this past year- so, I'm not going to say more about him and I will leave him reveal himself in front of you when you'll be reading this story...

Final Verdict- a beautiful story about love developing between two employees of a company, a story that has drama, fighting, passion, tears, but more than anything else has many funny moments and you'll be laughing so hard that you'll seriously think you'll pee yourself.



Rating: 5/5


So... what do you say? Will you be reading this beautiful story?

Blurb:


He left to travel the world for fame and glory, but only after spurning Gabby Ward and crushing her young heart. Now Hunter Markham has come back home to the sand and salty breeze of the North Carolina Outer Banks so he can open up Last Call, a beach bar nestled among the dunes of the Atlantic.




Gabby Ward is not happy that Hunter has returned. Bitter over his rebuff years before, she’s content to stay far away from him and his dangerously charming ways.




Gabby’s well-schemed plans to ignore Hunter go up in flames when he presents an offer to her that she simply can’t refuse, throwing them together in a common quest to each reach their goals. Working together day in and day out proves to be problematic for Gabby, who soon realizes that the feelings she had for him are still very much alive. Hunter struggles to reach through to Gabby’s cold heart, all while starting a new career away from his life as a top ranked, professional surfer.


What starts out as a mutual business arrangement soon turns into a passion that neither of them can continue to deny.


Hard choices lay ahead for both of them when Hunter is offered a once in a lifetime opportunity to return to the pro surfing tour.



Choices that could destroy what they have built or take them further than they ever had dared to hope.

In my library...

M-am gandit si in cele din urma mi-am spus ca poate a sosit momentul sa va prezint ce am adunat prin biblioteca, deci...









Din prima serie, 'Forth Grave...' si ' Third Grave...' le-am achizitionat cu ocazia unor reduceri atractive de la libraria online Libris, celelalte titluri sunt cumparate de mine ca un cadou de Craciun (pentru mine), cu un an in urma, de la Books Express.

In urmatoarea serie de fotografii, titlurile in limba engleza sunt achizitionate de la libraria Libris- daca va amintiti in luna februarie a devenit prima librarie din Romania care au adus pe piata carti in limba engleza. Ei bine, pentru ca nu am reusit sa rezist mi-am luat prima carte din viata mea in limba engleza, desigur, o carte care nu facea parte din programa mea scolara.
Iar celelalte titluri sunt cele aparute cu revista Bravo, cu exceptia romanului 'Chimie Perfecta' pe care l-am cumparat tot de la libraria online Libris.


Mai urmeaza saptamanile urmatoare sa mai postez in cadrul acestei rubrici, dar mi-ar placea sa aflu ce aveti si voi prin biblioteca si, desigur ce parere aveti...

Contemporary Fiction

Cine şi-ar fi închipuit că patru minute ar putea schimba totul?

Pentru tânăra de şaptesprezece ani, Hadley Sullivan, această zi pare să fie una dintre cele mai rele de până acum…
Tocmai a pierdut avionul, este blocată în aeroportul JFK din New York şi e pe cale să întârzie la nunta propriului ei tată, care se căsătoreşte, pentru a doua oară, la Londra, cu o femeie pe care n-a văzut-o în viaţa ei.
Apoi, aşteptând să se îmbarce în următorul avion, îl întâlneşte pe Oliver. E britanic. Şi e foarte drăguţ. Şi o va însoţi în noul ei zbor.
Călătoria de-o noapte trece cât ai clipi, iar Hadley şi Oliver se pierd unul de altul în aglomeraţia din aeroport, la sosire.
Îi va aduce oare soarta din nou împreună?

Desfăşurată pe parcursul a douăzeci şi patru de ore, povestea lui Hadley şi a lui Oliver ne vorbeşte despre relaţiile de familie, despre a doua şansă şi despre dragostea la prima vedere.

O carte de pe lista NEW YORK TIMES Editors’ Choice

“Un roman dinamic şi antrenant, cu o minunată idee romantică drept premisă. Cititorii vor fi absorbiţi, odată cu Hadley, de profunzimile emoţionale
pe care le străbate.”

— PUBLISHERS WEEKLY

“Vă veţi îndrăgosti de această carte — este o certitudine statistică!”

— Margaret Stohl, autoare a seriei bestseller Cronicile Casterilor

“Romantic şi inteligent, acest roman este un must-read. Imediat ce vei face cunoştinţă cu Oliver, o să te rogi să pierzi şi tu următorul zbor.”

— Sarah Mlynowski, autoarea bestsellerului Zece lucruri pe care le-am făcut (şi probabil
n-ar fi trebuit)

Acest titlu a apărut la Editura Epica şi poate fi achiziţionat aici.

Recenzie

Acest roman începe astfel:

     "Şi, o, există în viaţa asta
Zile pentru care merită să trăieşti,
Şi zile pentru care merită să mori"

               Charles Dickens
PRIETENUL NOSTRU COMUN

Cred că această mică frază ilustrează perfect conţinutul acestui roman, dar, totodată şi viaţa aşa cum este: bună şi rea...

În Prolog, Hadley Sullivan se grăbeşte să ajungă la aeroport, dar, din nefericire, are parte o serie de întâmplări ghinioniste- îşi uită cartea, probleme cu rochia, pierde monedele pentru taxă, rotiţele valizei sunt descentrate- şi astfel reuşeşte să piardă cursa spre Londra, o cursă ce ar fi trebui să o ajute cu prezenţa la unul dintre cele mai importante (şi fericite) momente din viaţa tatălui ei : căsătoria cu viitoarea ei mamă vitregă, o mamă vitregă pe care încă nu a cunoscut-o, deşi a auzit despre ea...

Ar trebui să fie un moment fericit, nu-i aşa? Poate veţi răspunde cu da sau nu. dar, pentru Hadley, această căsătorie este unul dintre cele mai îngrozitoare momente din viaţa ei. Cu toate că familia ei nu mai era fericită de mult timp, Hadley nu a reuşit să se împace cu gândul căsătoriei tatălui ei, dar, având în vedere circumstanţele, pot să o înţeleg şi chiar să-i justific, parţial, acţiunile. Dar, deşi era nemulţumită şi urăşte acest moment, nu ar fi vrut să lipsească, în special, datorită unei discuţii destul de aprige pe care a avut-o cu mama ei. Aceasta din urma, nefiind de acord cu refuzul lui Hadley de a participa la nunta tatălui ei, o îndeamnă şi încearcă să-i arate că dacă va lipsi de la acest moment, peste mai mulţi ani va regreta şi îşi va dori să dea timpul înapoi pentru a avea acele amintiri pe care acum nu şi le doreşte. Sincer, înţeleg punctul de vedere al ambelor personaje- al lui Hadley care nu se poate resemna cu ideea că tatăl ei şi-a distrus propria căsnicie, având aceea relaţie adulteră cu o altă femeie, dar şi al mamei ei, deşi nefericită de modul în care a 'evoluat' căsnicia ei, îşi sacrifică sentimentele pentru fericirea fiicei ei...

Dar, în cele din urmă, Hadley reuşeşte să reprogrameze şi astfel ajunge să-l cunoască pe Olive, un băiat britanic, serios, atractiv şi amuzant, care, încă din primul moment al întâlnirii lor, încearcă să o ajute pe Hadley cu bagajele ei. Totodată, acesta reuşeşte să o distragă suficient de mult încât ea să nu mai fie înspăimântată (datorită claustrofobiei ei), dar şi a situaţiei neplăcute în ceea ce-l priveşte pe tatăl ei...

Şi astfel în decursul unui singur zbor, Oliver reuşeşte să afle despre necunoscuta viitoare mamă vitregă, furia îndreptată spre tatăl ei, teama de ceea ce urmează să se întâmple la nuntă, 'relaţia' ei cu domnul Elefant, o jucărie ponosită primită cadou, în urmă cu mulţi ani, de la tatăl ei, iubirea faţă de lectură şi Dickens, primită tot de la tatăl ei. Cu alte cuvinte, între ei s-a petrecut totul şi nimic, dar s-a format o legăură puternică de prietenie, care, în cu totul alte circumstanţe, probabil nu s-ar fi întâmplat...

Dar, nu doar Oliver este cel care află mai multe despre Hadley, ci şi ea despre el, despre aventurile tatălui său şi nefericirea unei căsnicii (a unei familii) eşuate şi subjugate de 'secrete' la vedere. Astfel Hadley, dar şi cititorul, primeşte mai multe lecţii de viaţă, despre cum uneori este mai bine să afli adevărul dureros, decât să trăieşti în minciună...

Desigur, odată, cu terminarea zborului, cei doi se despart cu un sărut dureros, iar Hadley este convinsă că nu-l va mai vedea niciodată pe băiatul care a cucerit-o doar cu prezenţa lui şi, nu doar atât, acum trebuie să înfrunte o situaţie, faţă de care se simte complet nepregătită, iar după discuţia din avion, se simte mai confuză ca niciodată...

Naraţiunea se realizează la persoana întâi, din perspectiva lui Hadley, care are o 'voce' foarte puternică şi exprimă în mod clar şi concis sentimentele şi emoţiile ei în privinţa evenimentelor ce apar în roman. Desigur, dialogul şi naraţiunea predomină, dar avem parte şi de monologul interior al personajului principal, care ne ajută să ne conectăm cu uşurinţă la desfăşurarea acţiunii.

Personaje

Hadley- din multe puncte de vedere este încă imatură, dar având în vedere circumstanţele, se poate înţelege situaţia ei, precum şi sentimentele ei. Am privit situaţia în felul următor- ea este o fată fericită şi ocrotită de părinţii ei până când tatăl ei primeşte o slujbă importantă în cadrul Universităţii Oxford, iar astfel, departe de casă, se va îndrăgosti de o altă femeie şi va depune actele de divorţ, luând hotărârea să-şi stabilească domiciliul şi să-şi refacă viaţa alături de Charlotte. Din acest moment, întreaga lume s-a prăbuşit peste Hadley, iar de la o fată iubită şi protejată de ambii părinţi, a ajuns o fată doi părinţi divorţaţi, ambii încercând să-şi refacă viaţa alături de altcineva, iar ea... ea a rămas încă la stagiul de familie fericită...

Nu este uşor să accepţi toate acestea, iar Hadley, încă o adolescentă în curs de maturizare încearcă să-şi găsească drumul şi să treacă peste furia ei, dar cum ar putea să facă asta când lucrurile evoluează atât de repede?

Din fericire, îl cunoaşte pe Oliver, mult mai matur şi astfel, reuşeşte să-i arate tot ce s-a străduit să-i explice mama ei în ultimul an şi astfel, ea reuşeşte să se apropie de tatăl ei şi să renunţe la furia ei.

Oliver- aş vrea să vă spun mai multe despre el, dar cititorul reuşeşte să-l cunoască şi să-l înţeleagă pe deplin abia la sfârşitul romanului. Dar, până în acel moment rămâne un mister, deşi putem vedea frânturi din băiatul greu încercat şi rănit de proprii lui părinţi. Totuşi, ceea ce pot să vă spun este faptul că viaţa lui, precum şi modul în care abordează situaţia este un adevărat exemplu şi o lecţie foarte importantă pentru Hadley...

Andrew Sullivan- am înţeles că s-a îndrăgostit de o altă femeie, am înţeles că nu mai putea să continue aceea căsnicie eşuată, am înţeles până şi mutarea la Londra, pentru a-şi urmări visele. Deşi a fost egoist, în cea mai mare parte a timpului, cel puţin a fost sincer cu toţi cei implicaţi încă de la bun început, ceea ce nu se poate spune despre tatăl lui Oliver. Totuşi ceea ce m-a deranjat cel mai mult la acest personaj şi m-a determinat să nu-l pot suporta nici în acest moment este relaţia lui cu Hadley. De ce nu a încercat să se apropie mai mult de ea? De ce s-a grăbit cu logodna, dar nu a reuşit să găsească puţin timp pentru Hadley sau măcar să încerce să le apropie pe cele două, decât în acest moment?

Părerea mea este că i-a fost mult prea teamă să-şi înfrunte fiica şi s-a concentrat mai mult pe noua lui relaţie, de aceea pentru destul de mult m-a dezamăgit această lectură, dar după ce am recitit-o, în urmă cu câteva zile, am înţeles ce mă deranja cu adevărat, dar şi de ce mi-a plăcut foarte mult în acelaşi timp.

Nota mea 4,5/5

Citate:

"-Te-ai hotărât ce ai vrea?
Dar oare ştiu ce aş vrea? se întrebă Hadley, în gând.
Ar vrea să plece acasă.
Ar vrea ca şi acum acasă să fie cum era altădată.
Ar vrea să meargă oriunde, numai la nunta propriului tată, nu.
Ar vrea să se afle oriunde, numai în aeroportul acesta, nu.
Ar vrea să-i ştie numele.
După câteva clipe de tăcere, îşi ridică privirea spre el.
-Încă nu, îi răspunde. Încă mă gândesc."

"E preferabil să ai un lucru bun şi să-l pierzi, sau să nu-l fi avut niciodată?"

"Foarte bine, răspunde Hadley. Atunci, care e animalul tău preferat?
-Vulturul pleşuv american.
Ea izbucneşte în răs.
-Nu te cred.
Pe mine? Se miră el, ducăndu-şi o mână la piept. E ceva greşit în a iubi vietatea care, din întâmplare, este şi un simbol al libertăţii?
-Acum nu faci decât să râzi de mine.
Poate, un pic, recunoaşte el, cu un zâmbet. Dar reuşesc?
-Ce, să mă faci să fiu la un pas de a-ţi pune botniţă?
-Nu, răspunde el încet. Să te distrag.
-De la ce?
-De la claustrofobia ta.
Ea îi oferă un zâmbet recunoscător.
-Un pic, îi zice. Cu toate că nu e atât de rău, până nu ne înălţăm în aer.
-Cum aşa? se miră el. Acolo e spaţiu deschis din plin.
-Dar nicio cale de scăpare.
-A, zice el. Aşadar, tu cauţi o cale de scăpare.
-Totdeauna, încuviiţează Hadley.
-Ca să vezi, remarcă el, oftând teatral. Cu asta mă aleg mereu din partea fetelor."

"-Uite, azi? Săptămâna asta? Totul a fost prefăcut. Tu crezi că tatăl tău e un om îngrozitor pentru ce a făcut el? Cel puţin tatăl tău a fost cinstit. Tatăl tău a avut curajul de a rămâne prin preajmă. Şi ştiu că e o porcărie, dar după cum pare, el e fericit, şi mama ta e fericită, aşa că pentru toţi a ieşit mai bine, până la urmă.
 Pentru toţi, în afara mea, îl corectează Hadley în gând, dar păstrează tăcerea.
-Pe când tatăl meu? A înşelat-o pe mama ani de-a rândul! Tatăl tău a avut o relaţie, şi aia s-a transformat în dragoste, este? S-a transformat în căsătorie. A fost totul la lumina zilei, şi v-a eliberat pe toţi.Al meu a avut câte o duzină de relaţii, poate şi mai multe, şi cel mai rău lucru e că am ştiut cu toţii. Şi nimeni n-a vorbit despre asta."

This is the book you've been waiting to read since "Fifty Shades of Grey and "Easy"

 

Some things are worth to wait for ... 


Going thousands of miles from home to enroll in college is the only way how nineteen year old, Avery Morgansten can escape what has happened five years ago at a Halloween party, which changed her life forever. All she has to do is arrive on time to classes, to ensure that the bracelet on the left wrist is in place, to not attract attention to herrself and never can - God forbid! - make some friends, because without doubt this wouldn't be a welcome change. The only thing that does not need and she didn't thought is to arouse the interest only guy that could shake her fragile future which it builds for herself.


Some things are worth trying for...


Cameron Hamilton -1.90 inch of  male,that can make you pass out, complete with a pair of shockingly blue eyes. And with a remarkable ability to make Avery to want things that she had thought to be been abducted irrevocably. She knows that she should stay away from him, but Cam's maddeningly presence in every place, with his charm with his clever banter and that crazy dimple in his cheek, that make you want to ... eat it. To mess with him is dangerous, but you could no longer think that's possible to ignore the seething tension that sparks off whenever they are around each other, he makes it come out of her hiding side, about she had no idea that it exists.


Some things should never be silenced ...


But when Avery begins to receive threatening emails and calls they compel her to confront a past she wanted it buried, she has no choice but to acknowledge that there is someone who is not allowed to forget that night when everything changed. When the devastating truth will come out,this time one that you can't just escape it with only a scar? And, will Cam be there to help her out of the woods, or be dragged into the depths with her?


And for some things, it's worth fighting for ...


Review: 


Another brilliant title,and frankly, I had read many spectacular books (at least the last month) - I have not been annoyed (too much), I have not argued with the characters (not too much) and I enjoyed the imagination of writers (oh, yeah-all the worlds that I've visited were fascinating!)
But back to the topic-I really wanted to post this review before the book will appear on the Romanian market (from 5 February you can have it in your library!). Why?


Well, because it is a formidable title, whom I adored and which I wholeheartedly recommend it...
In the start of the novel, we meet Morgansten Avery, a cute girl, but very sad,because she had many experiences that were ... terrible - I do not want to go into this controversy, because I would destroy the charm of mystery in this novel ...


So ... we have Avery-a shy, but a determined girl that want's to take the reins of her destiny and to no longer let the ghosts of past run her life-easier said than done - but I have a girl determined to start a new life and so we come rushing on the steps of the plot. Avery moved from Texas (although she was born in Ohio) in the town, something more cooler, West Virginia (Lux series and Cursed, remember anyone?) - In this place, she is preparing to go to the astronomy class, but she delays and thus is how she hits a wall, just not a real ... wall-yep, you guessed it's a boy "1.90 of male inch that could make you pass out, complete with a pair of shockingly blue eyes", Cameron Hamilton, who manages to intimidate, and to 'awaken' her sexually (do not think bad things, ladies!) so that our girl, for the first time, she's facing the attraction for a stranger, but Avery has more pressing issues,like if she could risk and appear before the entire class, along with an unknown, but attractive stranger or flee from the crime scene? - unfortunately, it is not time that she could face whispers and rumors, more or less innocent about her late presence, so she decides to run ...


But a few days later, Avery meets, by chance, the tortoise, Raphael, which, the poor thing was abandoned in uncharted territory, because of 'Senor Fucktard', Ollie, one of Cam's friends and so Avery discovers that it is not so easy to escape Cameron Hamilton (this time, it's the showcasing plot in my opinion) ....


Since they're colleagues in the same class (and a they become partners in the same  class's project), Avery is slowly approaching Cam, or rather vice versa, because Cam never-never gives up! Although Avery refuses continuously when he invites her to go out on a date with him, he never gives up and, every time, he never fails to bring a smile on her lips (or mine!) of how Cam randomly invites her when you least expects it, in fact, practically, it becomes a sort of game between those two to see if he can get her on the wrong foot and thus to,( finally!) accept his invitation, but Avery is careful and does not accept so easily, especially since, it seems that she's not only one in the love life of Cam,because Stephanie, a former 'fucking buddy', that doesn't resign so easily with her former title, especially because it becomes clear that Cam is not gives her any attention, at least not the attention before Avery appears on stage. And this is how they start a game of passion, and none of them, Cam and Avery, doesn't want to give up, but they both feel a strong attraction to each other. In addition, during this whole time, it seems that the past does not want to stop haunting Avery and I say this because she receives many messages and calls offensive and shocking, if we consider the behavior of Avery ...


I admit, there were many scenes that I was impressed... like the breakfast scene with the two of them, in Avery's apartment, or in the tower scene where she confesses to never have dated a boy, or the scene at the Halloween Eve's party when a stranger boy shouldn't have been grabbing her and than she reacts violently, which causes Cam to react violently at the scene and that's how we discover that both of them have dangerous secrets ....


Another strong point of the novel was how the author balanced romance with friendship, fun and romantic drama, because you feel like you're in a roller coaster, in a moment you felt the adrenaline flowing through your veins and, in the same time, causing your mind to find a way of telling the characters to stop doing stupid things, and in the next moment, you're laughing with tears because of their sarcasm and wickedly mind games. A brilliant mixture, so typical, but unique fact to expect from.... Jennifer L. Armentrout.


What bothered me was that her secret was not so 'secret'-I mean I suspected what happened on Halloween's night, five years ago, BUT, what I suspect is how had that tragedy affects them and Cam's secret that was almost as terrible as that of Avery- I must admit that I didn't have the slight idea of who's calling Avery and terrifying her ...


The narration is done in first person, from Avery's perspective and the reader lives with such an impact the emotions of the main character's agony in the manner so characteristic of Jennifer L. Armentrout- I have to warn you, this book contains some events- not PG rated, so read at your own risk ...


Characters:


Avery-a shy, cute, smart, funny, she is one of the main characters of this novel, but also the narrator's story. Avery lived a terrible drama several years ago, but before that time, she was the popular girl, the one who spent time with friends, at parties, but it was also one of the best dancers of her class. What scandalized me most was that drama she went through, that would not have happened if her parents would've been more concerned about her happiness than their own social position. For instance, on the night that changed her existence, Avery's mother chose her 'outfit' and encouraged her to attend, although Avery didn't have the slightest idea of what to expect. Another reason for my disgust of her parents was that when the hell broke loose, and the consequences that followed, her parents were horrified by what their 'friends' will believe than their daughter's safety and tranquility. They did not want to interfere with a psychologist, even when the situation was serious, but did they do that? No! They, actually tried to manipulate their daughter to keep her silence about the truth-simply put out, these characters do not deserve the title of 'parents'. ..


However, Avery, becomes stronger and finds a way to escape the prison named 'home' and meets Cam who slowly manages to convince her to get out of her 'shell' so that she learns that life and the people are not just black and white ...


Cam is a cute, handsome, attentive, kind of boy who is adorable, funny and attractive at the same time-he's one of the main characters of this novel. Cam has had a turbulent past, that changed and turned him into the boy that he is today. What many of you do not know is that Cam was a rich boy, used to get any girl he wanted when he wanted, but an important event changed him completely, and despite flirting with every that moves, he is not only a Casanova and meeting Avery reinforces this maturing process ...


Jacob and Brittany, Ollie and Jase-Well, I can tell you about them that they are the best friends of Avery and Cam and in drama's times of the couple, their friends are the only ones who can help them move forward. In addition, many moments of fun and chaos was provided by their friends, as you can see if you read the quotes ...


Final Verdict - "Wait for you" is a novel that teaches us that we change permanent, but the essence remains the same whatever-  the soul- doesn't changes and remains the same even though the challenges a person has to pass. A novel that teaches us that we all have the right to a second chance, a chance that should not be wasted so easily. A novel about friendship, loyalty and love first. A novel about life and growing up ...


My Rating: 5/5

Quotes:

“I'm beginning to think cookies is a code word for something else."

"Maybe it is." He tugged on my bag again as he took a confident step back, forcing me down another step. "And just think about it. If cookie was a code word, whatever it symbolizes, it's been in your mouth, sweetheart.”
“Leaning back against Cam's chest, I tipped my head back and I reached up, cupping his cheek. I drew his mouth to mine and kissed him softly. "Thank you."

His lips curved up on one side. "For what?"

"For waiting for me.”
“You've been checking me out, haven't you? In between your flaming insults? I feel like man candy.”
“As long as the sun’s shining, shit can’t be that bad.”
“And this must be Avery?"

"Oh, God, no," Cam said. "This is Candy, Mom."

His mother's eyes widened and a bit of color infused her cheeks. "Uh, I'm..."

"I'm Avery," I said, shooting Cam a look. "You had it right."

She spun around, smacking Cam across the arm. Hard, too. "Cameron! Oh my God. I thought..." She smacked him again and he laughed. "You're terrible.”
“I didn't know what to say, but my heart was racing as he slid his hands down to mine. He placed them on his chest, right above his heart. "I have hope," he said, his gaze never leaving mine. "I have hope because I love you-I've been in love with you, Avery. Probably before I even realized that I was."

"You loved me?"

Cam dropped his forehead to mine and his chest rose sharply under my hands. "I love you."

My heart stuttered. "You love me?"

"Yes, sweetheart.”
“The moment we stepped out into the hall, Cam's apartment door flung open. Ollie appeared, a cellphone in one hand and Raphael wiggling in the other. "Smile!" he shouted as he snapped a picture on his phone. "It's like my two kids are going to prom.”
“My brain was telling me this was a bad idea and I told my brain to shut the fuck up, because it rarely told me anything helpful.”
“Fuck, Avery. You think I don't want you? There's not a single part of you that I don't want, you understand? I want to be on you and inside of you. I want you against the wall, on the couch, in your bed, in my bed, and every fucking place I can possibly think of, and trust me, I have a vast imagination when it comes to these kinds of things. Don't ever doubt that I want you. That is not what this is about.”

“I want to be here with you, Avery. You don't have to worry about impressing me or wowing me. You've already done that.”
“We are your friends. It is the law of friendship that you tell us things you don’t want to tell us.”
“People got out of the way for Cam. He was like a hot Moses, parting a sea of drunk college students.”
“I’m a shallow, shallow boy. Hey, it helps that you’re pretty. It brings out the nice guy in me. Makes me what to share my cookies with you.”
“I’m confident enough in my masculinity and sexuality that I can say that Ryan Gosling is just dreamy in this movie.”
“Guess what, Avery?"

"What?" I wondered if he could see how fast my heart was beating beneath my shirt.

"Remember how you just said you were having a good time?" Cam lowered his head so that our mouths were scant inches apart. "It's about to get better."

"Is it?"

He shifted his head and his nose grazed mine. "Oh, yeah."

"Are you not going to kiss me again?"

His lips tipped up. "That's exactly what I'm going to do.”
“Cam was already on his feet, waiting for me. I arched my brow at him. "Following me?" "Like a true serial killer," he replied.”
“Whoa," Brit breathed, handing my drink back to me. "That was..."

"Really hot," Jacob finished. "I thought you two were going to rip off each other's clothes and start making babies right here on the dirty, beer covered floor. Like I was going to have to start charging admission for what was about to go down.”
“You’re a good guy, Cam.”
“No, I’m not.” He exhaled deeply and his breath was warm against my cheek. “I’m only good with you.”
“Everything okay?" Cam asked, placing his hand on my lower back. Concern pinched his brows.

"Yes." I dropped my cell back into my bag.

Everything was okay. Maybe not perfect, but life wasn't meant to be perfect. It was messy and sometimes it was a disaster, but there was beauty in the messiness and there could be peace in the disaster.”
“You are really…”
“Amazing? Awesome?” He paused, brows raised. “Astonishing?”
“I was going to go with bizarre.”
“Well, hell, if I had feelings that might actually hurt.”
“I'm skipping, but Cam doesn't have a class until this afternoon, so he's a good boy."
"And your a bad boy?"
"Oh, I'm a bad, bad boy."
"Yeah, as in bad at spelling, math, english, cleaning up after yourself, talking to people, and I could go on.”
“So I was thinking we should skip tomorrow, stay right here and watch shitty movies all day."

My first response was to say I couldn't skip a whole day's worth of classes, but as I met Cam's mischievous gaze, I said screw it. "That's a brilliant idea."

"I know, right?" He tapped his head. "I'm full of great shit."

"Yeah, you're definitely full of it..."

"Ha.”
“He raised his brows. "You're drunk." "Am not!" He gave me a bland look. "A drunk's famous last words before they fall flat on their face.”
“We have to stop meeting like this."

And that was the truest thing ever spoke. I needed to stop staring at his bicep... and chest... and tattoo. Never thought the sun could be so... sexy. Wow. This was awkward.

"You running over me, me almost running over you?" Cam elaborated. "It's like we're a catastrophe waiting to happen.”
“Within a few short hours, he nearly had me agreeing to try deer jerky for the first time. Almost. If it weren't for Cam continuously whispering "Bambi" in my ear every couple of minutes, I would've caved.”
“I want you, Cam.”
“You have me,” he groaned. “You so fucking have me.”
“Avery."
"Cam?"
"What are you up to?"
"Nothing. Everything."
"Those are two opposite things."
"I know. Kiss me?”
“She jerked her hand back and shot me what could only be described as a 'bitch' look. Frankly, it was a fucking work of art and I was sort of jealous of that level of mastery.”
“Did last night really happen?" One side of his lips tipped up, and my chest swelled. I'd missed that smile. "Depends on what you think happend." "I took my shirt off for you?" His eyes deepened. "Yes. Lovely moment.”
“Warmth slid through my veins as my body tensed in a welcomed, delicious way.

My eyes fluttered shut as his lips brushed mine once and then twice, as if he was getting reacquainted with the feel of them. The slight, barely there touch was nerve racking.

Cam shifted his weight onto his left arm and with his other hand, he spread his fingers along my cheek. He placed a kiss to the corner of my lips and the other side before sliding his hand back around the nape of my neck. His lips moved along my jaw, trailing a fiery path to my ear. A shiver danced along my skin, eliciting a deep, husky chuckle from him. His lips pressed against the sensitive spot under my ear, and a moan crawled up my throat.

“Goodnight, Avery.”

And then he kissed me—kissed me like he’d had right before he’d left the night of our date. Kissed me like he was a man starving for oxygen and I was the only air he needed to breathe. The hand around my neck held me there, raised up on my elbows as his mouth devoured mine. And that was the only word I could use to accurately explained how he kissed me.

Cam devoured me.”
