Review | Meg Collett - Fakers




Kyra Aberdeen is a Youtube sensation. Her bubbling personality and fresh beauty capture the hearts of millions each week through her videos. But she’s just faking it. Because beneath the surface is a simmering darkness that threatens to pull Kyra under some days. She masks her depression with a sunny smile and bright laugh.

When Kyra moves to Canaan Island and buys her deceased mother’s childhood home, she is hoping to confront the lurking darkness that haunts her every step. But life never goes according to plan, and when Kyra meets her grumpy contractor, Hale Cooper, it seems he’s not going to make things any easier for her. Yet Kyra is drawn to him, to a man whose every emotion plays across his face as he feels it. But she’s never let herself get too close to anyone before, and she finds herself in uncharted waters.

If she lowers her guard and allows herself to love Hale, will the darkness creep in too?

Wanted | New (e)books in December

Weihnachten kommt mit großen Schritten näher und es befinden sich sogar ein paar festliche Geschichten auf meiner Dezember-Wunschleseliste. Ich freu mich also besonders auf folgende Titel.

Review | Louise Bay - Faithful

Leah Thompson’s life in London is everything she's supposed to want: a successful career, the best girlfriends a bottle of sauvignon blanc can buy, and a wealthy boyfriend who has just proposed. But something doesn't feel right. Is it simply a case of ‘be careful what you wish for’?

Uncertain about her future, Leah looks to her past, where she finds her high school crush, Daniel Armitage, online. Daniel is one of London's most eligible bachelors. He knows what and who he wants, and he wants Leah. Leah resists Daniel’s advances as she concentrates on being the perfect fiancé.

She soon finds that she should have trusted her instincts when she realises she's been betrayed by the men and women in her life.

Leah's heart has been crushed. Will ever be able to trust again? And will Daniel be there when she is?

Review | Kate Roth - Last Resort & Best Laid Plans



Danielle Ward hasn’t had sex in six years. Sure, she’s been on dates. She even has a boyfriend, but it seems something is always getting in the way when it comes to doing the deed. After her boyfriend finally loses his patience and leaves her to drown her sorrows, her best friend Georgia comes up with a plan that becomes more and more brilliant with each shot of tequila: Book a non-refundable solo trip to an adults-only resort with the intention of getting laid.

The beach is picturesque, her room is luxurious, the alcohol is included … and Danielle can’t wait to get the hell out of there the second she checks in. That is, until an uninvited kiss from drunken hotel guest and Hollywood hottie Evan Weston. Once Evan discovers the reason for Danielle’s vacation, he won’t let up in his pursuit to be the one to solve her problem. Caught between her desire for a fresh start and the preposterous idea of having a fling with her celebrity crush, Danielle decides it’s time to throw caution to the wind and her panties to the floor. But it’s never just sex, is it? And Evan Weston isn’t just any man. He isn’t just a movie star.

Gossip | Autogramme



Ich nehme mir heute mal Sonjas Post  als Anlass für meinen Beitrag. Sie hat letzten Freitag über Autogramme von Lieblingsautoren gequatscht und da habe ich mich mal daran erinnert, welche Schätze ich so alles horte.

Ich bin niemand, der jetzt fanatisch Jagd auf Autogramme oder Fotos macht, aber wenn sich die Möglichkeit ergibt, sage ich natürlich nicht Nein, weil es doch ein schönes Andenken sein kann. 

Gossip | Neuzugänge November

Endlich sind mal wieder ein paar physische Bücher bei mir eingezogen. Leider bin ich ja momentan platzbedingt mehr und mehr auf EBooks angewiesen, deshalb liegen hier dann Freude und Leid nah beieinander - ersteres, meine Lieblingsbücher in gebundener Form in der Hand halten zu können;  - zweiteres, weil dann gleich die Frage aufkommt, wohin damit? :)

Review | Christina Lauren - Dirty Rowdy Thing

Despite their rowdy hookups, Harlow and Finn don’t even like each other... which would explain why their marriage lasted only twelve hours. He needs to be in charge and takes whatever he wants. She lives by the Want-something-done? Do-it-yourself mantra. Maybe she’s too similar to the rugged fisherman - or just what he needs.

Review | R.S. Grey - The Duet




When 27-year-old pop sensation Brooklyn Heart steps in front of a microphone, her love songs enchant audiences worldwide. But when it comes to her own love life, the only spell she’s under is a dry one.

So when her label slots her for a Grammy performance with the sexy and soulful Jason Monroe, she can’t help but entertain certain fantasies... those in which her G-string gets more play than her guitars'.

Only one problem. Jason is a lyrical lone wolf that isn’t happy about sharing the stage—nor his ranch — with the sassy singer. But while it may seem like a song entitled ‘Jason Monroe Is an Arrogant Ho’ basically writes itself, their label and their millions of fans are expecting recording gold…

They’re expecting The Duet.

Review | Tracey Alvarez - Christmas with You




She’s a Holiday Grinch…
Carly Gatlin doesn’t want to spend another Christmas alone. With her beloved father gone, she’s desperate to be part of a family—so she’s spending the holidays with her step-brothers on Stewart Island. But even with sand, sun, and not a snowflake in sight, everything reminds her of what she’s lost. So no tree trimming, cookie baking, or kisses under the mistletoe for her, thanks. Especially not from Due South’s sexy bartender, Kip.

He’s a too-hot-for-his-Santa-suit killjoy...
Kip Sullivan’s moved hundreds of miles away from his family who’d like to see him married off before his next birthday - on Christmas Eve. Then ten days before the big event, his meddling relatives arrive en masse, and dear God, they’re planning to stay. With match-makers breathing down his neck, it’s becoming harder to ignore the temptation to unwrap Carly like a present under the tree.

Kip agrees to help make Carly’s first New Zealand Christmas special. He’s got five holiday missions to complete - one involving a frisky fake reindeer - before he hopes to claim a mistletoe kiss… and maybe even Carly’s heart.

Review | M. Pierce - Last Light




Matt Sky is missing. After a solo ascent of Longs Peak that left only a large blood stain, tatters of climbing clothing, and the tracks of an animal in the snow, he is presumed dead…

Hannah Catalano is guarding a secret…

Follow Friday | Habt ihr in der letzten Zeit ein Buch vorbestellt, auf das ihr euch riesig freut? Wenn ja welches?

 




Habt ihr in der letzten Zeit ein Buch vorbestellt, auf das ihr euch riesig freut? Wenn ja welches? möchte Sonja diese Woche wissen. 

Generell bestelle ich eigentlich wenig vor, aber momentan befindet sich eines auf der Warteliste und das ist Sandra Browns neuester Thriller „Kalter Kuss“. Er erscheint Anfang Dezember, also dauert es nicht mehr lange :) Ich bin schon neugierig darauf, denn Sandra Brown war eine meiner ersten Lieblingsautorinnen und ich lese eigentlich alles was sie in dem Genre schreibt. 

Bestellt ihr viel vor? Bzw. worauf freut ihr euch schon am meisten? 

Liebe Grüße
Doris
 


Montagsfrage | Hab ihr euch schon mal vor einem Buch gedrückt, obwohl ihr es eigentlich lesen wolltet?


Es geht mir tatsächlich auch manchmal so wie Nina. Bei mir sind es dann meist Bücher, die Freundinnen total gut gefallen haben und die ich auch unbedingt lesen will, die ich aber aufschiebe, weil ich befürchte, dass sie meinen Erwartungen nicht gerecht werden. Oder es handelt sich um Fortsetzungen, deren erster Band super war, bei denen es nun aber mit demselben Pärchen weitergeht. Da will ich (meist nach einem Cliffhanger) zwar gerne wissen, wie die beiden ihr Schicksal meistern; wieder zusammenfinden etc., drück mich aber darum herum, weil ich mir sicher bin, dass ich mich dann leider doch rasch langweile. Manchmal ist es aber so wie bei Nina auch ein schwieriges Thema, das mich zögern lässt. Aber irgendwann ist bestimmt der richtige Zeitpunkt da, um auch solche zu lesen. 


Habt ihr auch Bücher, die ihr ewig vor euch her schiebt?

Liebe Grüße
Doris
