Rezension: Behind the Bars von Brittainy C. Cherry

Inhaltsangabe:
When I first met Jasmine Greene, she came in as raindrops.
I was the awkward musician, and she was the high school queen.
The only things we had in common were our music and our loneliness.
Something in her eyes told me her smile wasn’t always the truth.
Something in her voice gave me a hope I always wished to find.
And in a flash, she was gone.
Years later, she was standing in front of me on a street in New Orleans.
She was different, but so was I. Life made us colder. Harder. Isolated.
Caged.
Even though we were different, the broken pieces of me recognized the sadness in her.
Now she was back, and I wouldn’t make the mistake of letting her go again.
When I first met Jasmine Greene, she came in as raindrops.
When we met again, she was the darkest storm.

Meine Einschätzung:
Als ich 2016 zufällig auf "The Silent Waters" von Brittainy C. Cherry gestoßen bin erwartete ich nicht eine neue LieblingsAutorin gefunden zu haben.
Doch wie heißt es so schön: Unverhofft kommt oft.
Und inzwischen - nach 5 gelesenen Büchern von ihr - bekomme ich nicht genug von ihr und ihrer Art des Schreibens.
Obwohl der Cover Reveal schon etwas länger her ist komme ich erst jetzt dazu meine Rezension zu diesem wieder einmal ganz besonderen Buch zu schreiben. Neue Arbeit und gesundheitliche Probleme haben mich bisher davon abgehalten meine Meinung zu diesem Buch kund zu tun.

Jetzt aber zurück zum Buch. Ja, was soll ich sagen? Sicherlich wollt ihr hören wie fesselnd und überaus gut geschrieben das Buch ist. Das ich es nicht aus der Hand legen konnte, geschweige denn wollte. Wahrscheinlich wollt ihr lesen, dass ich nicht eher aufhören konnte bis ich durch war, oder? All das und noch viel mehr könnte ich euch zu diesem Buch sagen, doch wisst ihr welches Wort oder welcher Begriff mir in den Sinn kommt, wenn ich an "Behind the Bars" denke?
MAGISCH!
Das Buch war vom ersten Moment an magisch und einfach wunderschön zu lesen. Es war anders, als ihre Elemental Reihe, aber ebenso gut.
Sie setzt einfache Worte hintereinander, dass sie sich zu einer kraftvollen Geschichte verbinden und einen fesseln bis zum letzten Punkt.
Hier stimmte von den sympathischen Charakteren, die man sofort ins Herz schloss bis zu der interessanten und herzzerreißenden Handlung einfach alles.


Alles in Allem ist Brittainy hier wieder ein Meisterwerk gelungen und ich kann es kaum erwarten den nächsten Band in dieser neuen Reihe zu lesen.

Mein Fazit:

Absolute Leseempfehlung und 5 magische Sterne!

Hotter than Hell in July and a firm believer that my place is on reception, taking phone calls and looking pretty. Not getting dirty under the hood of a car. Determined to prove each other wrong, we make a deal. I have three weeks to prove my worth as a mechanic. If I don’t, I’m on telephone duty. If I do, he’ll accept defeat and make my job permanent.

Rezension: "The Outpost" by Devney Perry

Inhaltsangabe: 
Trapped in his tiny mountain cabin, she didn't expect to fall for his big heart.

Exposing a prominent criminal family with an investigative news report didn’t exactly work out the way Sabrina had hoped. Instead of basking in the glory of her article’s success, she’s on the run from a powerful man who wants her dead. To stay safe, she’s forced to trade one bad situation for another. Stuck in the Montana wilderness, she’s secluded from anything resembling civilization or the modern-day world. The only good thing about her situation is the gorgeous mountain man assigned to protect her. Too bad he isn’t the slightest bit interested in a city girl like her.

Beau likes his life quiet and simple. Give him a peaceful day hiking in the woods with his dog, and he’s a happy man. He has no use for large crowds, noisy cities or dramatic women. So when a hotshot reporter rolls into town, dragging her big-time problems with her, he should have run for the hills. Instead, he volunteered to keep her safe. Bringing her into his world won’t be easy, but if he can convince her that Montana isn’t as terrifying as she believes, they might just be the perfect match.

Meine Einschätzung:
Seit im Frühjahr diese Autorin entdeckt habe fiebere ich jeder ihrer Neuerscheinungen entgegen. Doch ich muss auch sagen, dass mich Bd. 3 zuletzt nicht wirklich vom Hocker gerissen hat, da ich einfach nicht warm mit der Protagonistin wurde und immer dachte, dass Silas eine viel besserer Partnerin finden könnte, wenn er denn wollte.
Nevertheless, hier geht es ja um Bd. 4 - The Outpost, die die Geschichte von Beau und Sabrina erzählt und ich muss sagen hier hat mich die Autorin wirklich überrascht.
Denn schon Anfang an hatte dieses Buch eine ganz andere Atmosphäre als die Vorgänger und auch das Feeling war ein völlig anderes.
Der Schreibstil war wieder fesselnd und wunderbar leicht und flüssig zu lesen. Sie brachte die Isolation von Sabrina sehr gut rüber und auch die sich langsam entwicjelnde Beziehung zwischen den beiden Protagonisten. Einmal angefangen kam ich einfach nicht los von Beau und Sabrina. Ich fieberte dem Ende entgegen und war überrascht, denn mit diesem Twist hätte ich nie im Leben gerechnet.

Die Handlung selbst war detailiert und fesselnd geschrieben. Man wollte einfach wissen wie sich alles zwischen den Beiden entwickelt und ob sich die Bösewichte noch mucksen, wobei ich das Kleinstadtfeeling hier etwas vermisst habe, dass man in den vorangegangenen Büchern erleben durfte.

Die Charaktere waren mir wieder wie in allen Büchern (mit Ausnahme von Felicity in Bd. 3) wieder sehr sympathisch und ich habe mit Sabrina und Beau mitgefühlt, denn es schien wirklich unmöglich für die Beiden einen gemeinsamen Nenner zu finden. Wobei beide bereit waren und am liebsten hätte man ihnen eine Ohrfeige verpasst.

Alles in Allem ein starker 4. Teil der Jamison Valley Reihe und ich kann es jetzt schon kaum erwarten den finalen Band der Reihe in Händen zu halten.

Mein Fazit:
5 Sterne - für einen soliden 4. Teil und eine klare Leseempfehlung!

Exclusive Excerpts:

“Bryce,” the producer called from behind the row of cameras. “We’re all set.”

“Thanks.” She waved over the hair and makeup team. My blond hair got fluffed and placed while her skin was dusted and blushed. With both of our lips recolored, we settled in for the interview. The cameraman gave us his countdown and then Bryce did her introduction before turning to me.

“You’ve had quite the year, Sabrina. Just a little over one year ago, you wrote an article for The Seattle Times that shut down the biggest gun-smuggling operation on the upper West Coast. Then you disappeared for six months, only to reemerge as a best-selling romance novelist. You’ve just won a Pulitzer Prize for investigative reporting and I’ve heard that there are talks of making your book into a blockbuster. How does it feel to have reached such success in your career?”

“Thank you. It’s been wonderful, albeit very busy.” I smiled and glanced at my lap to hide the flash of pain that crashed through my heart. Nothing about my successes gave me joy. Talking about my accomplishments just reminded me of how much I had lost.

“You’ve made some major achievements since you came back to Seattle,” Bryce said. “Most journalists, including this one, would kill to be in your position. How does it feel?”

I gave her my rehearsed answer. “It’s been incredible. Surreal, really. I’m still in shock at how much has happened over the last year.”

“I can imagine.” She flipped to a new note card. “Let’s talk more about the article.”

My cheerful face belied my true feelings. I was miserable on this television set. I was exhausted from talking about that damn article. I was done having people fuss over its success.

Everyone thought it was the article that had changed my life.

It wasn’t.

It had been the six months I’d spent in Montana.

It had been the six months I’d spent with him.

Love on the edge of time by Julie Richman

SBPRBanner-LOTEOT-ER

Love on the Edge of Time, an all-new stand-alone story about a love too great to be bound by time, from Julie A. Richman is coming November 13th!

LOTEOT_Print_Web.jpg

Love on the Edge of Time by Julie A. Richman

Publishing Date: November 13th, 2017

He likes whiskey and wild women
She likes Ben & Jerry’s
He’s about to get kicked out of his own band
She ate her way off the Miss America pageant circuit
What could these two possibly have in common?
A psychiatrist
A lot of unresolved issues
A whole bunch of shared lifetimes
And a love that is never-ending
As bad boy rocker, Jesse Winslow, and former pageant queen, Kylie Martin, each fight the demons screwing up their lives, the one person who holds the key to healing their ills and reuniting two souls that have searched for one another, lifetime after lifetime, is the only one who knows the whole truth.
And keeping that truth from them may just be in preeminent psychiatrist Dr. Claire Stoddard’s best interests.
Claire has committed the ultimate sin in the medical world. She’s fallen for the one man she’s forbidden to love.
Her patient, Jesse Winslow.
And she’s not about to lose him to Kylie Martin... Again.

Excerpt:

I’m at a table in the back-right corner, he texted. In a cab a few blocks away. See you in 5. Kylie was running a few minutes late, not rudely late, just fashionably late. She had pulled nearly everything she owned out of her closet, trying to find something that was flattering, yet rock-star cool and ‘Yeah, I know his ex is a top model’. ‘So What’ chic was the look she was trying to pull off. It wasn’t easy. With the recent weight loss, she was between sizes. Her big girl clothes, as she was now referring to them, looked like misshapen potato sacks on her and her pageant days’ wardrobe were nowhere near an option yet, and might not ever be. She made the decision. It’s New York, seriously, just pick something black. And so black it was. Black legging jeans, black high boots, a thin, black, cashmere V-neck sweater, all topped with a black leather jacket. Twisting her hair, she clipped it up, then pulled a few strands out to frame her face and a few at the base of her neckline. It was messy and sexy. Standing in front of the mirror, she wondered for whom she was dressing. Jesse? Well, yeah, you don’t want to be seen with a rock star looking like a beast on parade. The paparazzi? Same logic applied as for Jesse. The skinny model ex-girlfriend? Well, not really for her, but for everyone who would make a comparison. For herself? C’mon, he’s Jesse Fucking Winslow. Get real. As she made her way to the back of the darkened restaurant, Kylie could feel her spine straighten, shoulders fall back, chin up. The only thing missing was the sash as she gracefully floated past tables, the male occupants covertly attempting to sneak an appreciative look without alerting their female companions. I’ve still got it. And her confidence soared as she sat down in the chair next to one of the sexiest, most recognizable men on the planet, and he had watched every man in the restaurant check her out. “You look gorgeous, Toots.” “Thank you.” It was still surreal that she was sitting here with her new buddy. “I’m going to have to fight half the guys in the restaurant off you.” Laughing, “I doubt that.” Kylie rolled her eyes.

About the Author:

jarheadshot.jpgI must've been 5 or 6 when I started writing "stories". I would write them and hide them. Not wanting anyone to see my "secret" thoughts. I needed to write - even back then. Now I'm just not hiding them anymore. Is that a sign of maturity? Nah... Writer, photographer, insatiable wanderluster, edge-player, foodie, music addict, pop culture fanatic, animal lover, warrior for the rights of people and planet, and avid cusser (am a Native New Yorker, so very little offends me...and if I am offended, it must be pretty freaking bad..like bad grammar!) I am a big believer in signs and if we keep ourselves open, there are guideposts all along the way. Stay humble. Be true. Be you. Life is not a dress rehearsal...
