Just Human by Kerry Heavens (review on English and Croatian)

About the book:

Meet Liv and Danny...

Liv loves Danny. She knows she loves him more than he loves her, so she lets him go without a fight when his parents make him move back to America. She knows she will never love anyone like she loved him, but she has to move on.

Danny loves Liv. He knows he loves her more than she loves him, because she does nothing to get him to stay, so he goes quietly when his parents leave the UK. He knows he will never love anyone like he loved her, but he has to move on.


Twelve years on, they have made a good job of pretending, they may have almost forgotten. But when they get in touch via Facebook, it seems that it is all still there. 


They quickly find that they are intensely compatible in ways they hadn’t even begun to explore before they were forced apart. 


Can they put aside their fears and give it a go? Or will deep rooted doubts and insecurities tear them apart?





Rating 4/5

First of all, the cover of the book is to die for! It’s simple and beautiful.

Liv is twenty nine year old bar owner and great girl but it seems that her soon-to-be-ex-boyfriend dos not get that.  After that she just wants to relax and enjoy.

But her phone rings. She has new message on Facebook.
It’s Danny.

Her long lost love.

Her first and ONLY real love.

I like that conversation started via Facebook and then face to face. We can’t ignore the fact that social networks are big part of our lives. They can start things and destroy things... other authors ignore that teenagers and older generations chat on Facebook and don’t write about it but we all know that as soon as kids learn how to use Internet they immediately have profiles on FB. So it was realistic to start whit that because Danny is in US and Liv in UK.

I like every second of Liv thoughts and fears and how she reacts on everything. I wish I could be like her. And have tattoo like her ;)

As soon as they get together action starts. There is a lot of sex in book and it was good. Not Cherise-Sinclair-great or Selena-Kitt-fantastic but it was okay. That is why my rating is 4.

Book is very easy to read and it’s fun and exciting. Danny is great guy and they are destined to be together but...  There is always but in every story... I’ll have to find out what happens next in sequel Still human. Can’t wait to start!!

“You left, but it wasn't your fault. So you've stayed perfect in my memory. I guess my fear is, if I let myself love you, you might turn out to be just human. And if you're just human, you could easily hurt me too. I couldn't survive being hurt by you Danny.” 
  
“I’ve tried very hard since then, not to hold everything up against what we had, but it’s impossible. There has been something missing in my life ever since that day and last week, for the first time in twelve years, something changed. The missing piece came into view and I had to come see if I could put myself back together.” 



O knjizi:

Upoznajte Liv i Dannyja.

Liv voli Dannyja. Zna da ga voli više no što on voli nju pa ga pusti bez borbe kada se njegovi roditelji odluče preseliti u Ameriku. Zna da nikada neće voljeti nikoga kao što je voljela njega, ali mora krenuti dalje.

Danny voli Liv. Zna da ju voli više no što ona voli njega, zato što ne napravi ništa kako bi ga zadržala od odlaska te na kraju bez rasprave odlazi iz Ujedinjenog Kraljevstva s roditeljima. Zna da nikada neće voljeti nikoga kao što je volio nju, ali mora krenuti dalje.

Nakon dvanaest godina skoro su zaboravili. No kada dođu u kontakt preko Facebooka čini se kao da su osjećaji još uvijek tu.

Brzo otkriju da si odgovaraju i više no što su znali jer nisu imali vremena istraživati prije no što su bili razdvojeni.

Mogu li zaboraviti svoje strahove i prepustiti se? Ili će ih duboko ukorenjene sumnje i nesigurnost razdvojiti?

Ocjena 4/5

Prije svega, naslovnica knjige je za fenomenalna. Jednostavna je i lijepa.

Liv je dvadeset devetogodišnja  vlasnica bara i odlična cura no čini se da njen uskoro bivši dečko to ne kuži. Nakon toga samo se želi opustiti i uživati.

Ali njen mobitel zazvoni. Ima novu poruku na Fejsu.

Danny je.

Njena davno izgubljena ljubav.

Njena prva i JEDINA prava ljubav.

Sviđa mi se to što je razgovor počeo preko Facebooka, a onda lice u lice. Ne možemo ignorirati činjenicu da su društvene stranice veliki dio našeg života (nekima više, nekima manje, ali sveprisutne su). One mogu pokrenuti ili uništiti stvari . . . drugi autori ignoriraju činjenicu da tinejđeri i starije generacije razgovaraju na Fejsu i ne pišu o tome, ali svi znamo da čim se klinci nauče koristiti Internetom odmah prave profile na FB. Na kraju je bilo realno da razgovor tako započne pošto je Danny u SAD-u a Liv u UK-u.

Sviđa mi se svaka sekunda Livinih misli i strahova i kako reagira na sve.  Da bar mogu biti kao ona. I da barem imam tetovažu kakvu ima ona ;)

Čim završe zajedno akcija počinje. U knjizi ima puno sexa koji je dobar. Ne Cherise Sinclair odličan ili Selena Kitt fantastičan ali bio je uredu. Zato je moja ocjena 4.

Knjigu je vrlo lako čitati, zabavna je i uzbudljiva. Danny je super tip i zaslužuju jedan drugoga ali. . .  uvijek postoji neki ali u priči. . . morat ću otkriti što se dalje događa u nastavku Still human. Jedva čekam da počnem sa čitanjem.

Evo nekoliko citata iz knjige:

“You left, but it wasn't your fault. So you've stayed perfect in my memory. I guess my fear is, if I let myself love you, you might turn out to be just human. And if you're just human, you could easily hurt me too. I couldn't survive being hurt by you Danny.” 

“I’ve tried very hard since then, not to hold everything up against what we had, but it’s impossible. There has been something missing in my life ever since that day and last week, for the first time in twelve years, something changed. The missing piece came into view and I had to come see if I could put myself back together.”

    1. Ja sam samo prvo poglavlje za početak i slažem se s tobom, sviđa mi se... Njene su knjige uvijek dobre pa se nadam da me ni ova neće razočarati

    2. I ja se nadam. Nisu tipični ljubavni romani, zato mi i jesu zanimljive.
