Kopf Aus, Herz An by Jo Watson

Saturday, August 19, 2017
A nice cover that caught my attention in the literally last minute. When I placed my application for it, I never thought that I would get lucky.

Lilly's worst nightmare becomes true when her fiancé leaves her in front of the wedding ceremony. But instead of putting her head in the sand, she decides to pursue the honeymoon to Thailand anyway - alone. Still in the plane, she meets the attractive Damien, who with his tattoos and the spontaneous nature is actually exactly the kind man, around Lilly would otherwise make a large bow. But now that there's nothing she holds back, she lets her take her on a journey - a journey that shows her what it means to listen to his heart and not to his head.

My Review

As much as I like the cover of the German edition, but the novel itself turned out to be a nice story with an annoying main character.

Silver Linings by Debbie Macomber

Debbie Macomber simply knows how to entertain her readers. This novel is beautiful, emotional and still not kitschy or in any way too much.

As Katie hopes for a second chance, Coco discovers that people can change – and both look to the exciting possibilities ahead.

My Review

I am still in some sort of shock. There is so much heart, drama, and love in this novel and you can find on every page something you haven´t discovered yet.

Bad Romeo by Leisa Rayven

Thursday, August 17, 2017
This was the first book I read by the author. And it was worth every second I spend with it! Never had so much fun while reading an old story about love. Now, while waiting for the third one to come out (later this year) I am posting my review for the first Bad Romeo book *smile*

While performing the greatest love story of all time, they discover one of their own… Cassie Taylor was just another acting student with big dreams at her prestigious performing arts college... then she met Ethan Holt. She was the good girl actress. He was the bad boy on campus. But one fated casting choice for Romeo and Juliet changed it all. Like the characters they were playing on stage, Cassie and Ethan´s epic romance seemed destined. Until it ended in tragedy when he shattered her heart. Now they´ve made it to Broadway where they´re reunited as romantic leads once again – and their passionate scenes force them to confront the heartbreaking lows and pulse-pounding highs of their intense college affair. For Ethan, losing Cassie was his biggest regret – and he´s determined to redeem himself. But for Cassie, even though Ethan was her first and only great love, he hurt her too much to ever be trusted again. The trouble is, working with him again reminds her that people who rub each other the wrong way often make the best sparks. And when it comes to love, sometimes it´s the things that aren´t good for us that are the most irresistible. 

My Review

Allowedly I read this book some time ago. Some looong time ago. But my enthusiasm hasn´t changed.

Sting by Sandra Brown

Sandra Brown is a guarantor for great thrillers. At least that´s the genre where I love her writing the most. Sting is no exception. From the start, you are in a game where you´ll can only guess who´s the good guy and who´s the bad.

When Jordie Bennet and Shaw Kinnard lock eyes across a disreputable backwater bar, something definitely sparks. Shaw gives off a dangerous vibe that makes men wary and inspires women to sit up and take notice. None feel that undercurrent more strongly than savvy businesswoman Jordie, who doesn´t belong in a seedy dive on the banks of a bayou. But here she is … and Shaw Kinnard is here to kill her. As Shaw and his partner take aim, Jordie is certain her time has come. But Shaw has other plans and abducts Jordie, hoping to get his hands on the $ 30 million her brother has stolen and, presumably, hidden. However, Shaw is not the only one looking for the fortune. Her brother´s ruthless boss and the FBI are after it as well. Now on the run from the feds and a notorious criminal, Jordie and Shaw must rely on their wits – and each other – to stay alive. Miles away from civilization and surrounded by swampland, the two play each other against their common enemies. Jordie´s only chance of survival is to outwit Shaw, but it soon becomes clear to Shaw that Jordie isn´t entirely trustworthy, either. Was she in on her brother´s scam, or is she an innocent pawn in a deadly vendetta? And just how valuable is her life to Shaw, her remorseless and manipulative captor? Burning for answers – and for each other – this unlikely pair ultimately makes a desperate move that could be their last.

My Review

This thriller I enjoyed as an audio book. And the narrator did a (mostly) great job.

Ein Sommergarten In Manhattan by Sarah Morgan

Tuesday, August 15, 2017
Another wonderful book by the author. This time the tone is a bit different, the theme another and yet you will find a lot of love, passion, desire and that it is worth to risk it all if true love is what you will get out of it on the other end.

Love has never been a priority for garden designer Frankie Cole. After witnessing the fallout of her parents´ divorce, she´s seen the devastation an overload of emotion can cause. The only man she feels comfortable with is her friend Matt – but that´s strictly platonic. If only she found it easier to ignore the way he makes her heart race … Matt Walker has loved Frankie for years but, sensing how fragile she is beneath her feisty exterior, has always played it cool. But then he uncovers new depths to the girl he´s known forever and doesn´t want to wait a moment longer. He knows Frankie has secrets and has buried them deep, but can Matt persuade her to trust him with her heart and kiss him under the Manhattan sunset?

My Review

A disastrous divorce, a mother who is embarrassing her daughter every time they meet and a man who is patient as hell, what more do you want as basis for a beautiful novel?
