Recenzija: Ljubav je sve što nam treba (Green Mountain #1) by Marie Force

Gradska cura poslom dolazi u idiličnu provinciju zametenu snijegom… I tamo nabasa na muškarca svojih snova.

Obiteljsku trgovinicu u Vermontu, u vlasništvu Abbottovih, mještani vole kao podsjetnik na jednostavnija vremena. Vlasnikova djeca su je naumila takvom i sačuvati – ali njihov otac ima drukčije planove… I zapošljava Njujorčanku Cameron Murphy kako bi izvukla posao iz pretpotopnog doba u kojemu je zapeo. Može li ljubav spojiti njihove u svemu suprotne živote?

Kad Cameron krene u Vermont da bi izradila web stranicu za novog klijenta, zamišlja opušten izlet u bezbrižnu planinsku provinciju. No, pošto uništi auto udarivši u gradskog losa, upoznaje najzgodnijeg junaka kojega je ikada vidjela. Nažalost, njezin spasitelj, Will Abbott, je i sin njezina klijenta – i ne želi imati posla ni s novom web stranicom ni s gradskom curom koja stoji iza nje…

When she accepts a ride from the first car to come by she meets Gabriel. He’s her age, hot, and the closest thing she has to a savior. Problem is, he is a total jerk. With nowhere to go, Caden convinces Gabriel to let her stay with him for one night. He reluctantly lends a couch.
That night Caden wakes up to strange noises. Concerned, she rushes into Gabriel’s room, already anticipating his bad temper. Instead, he’s kind, sweet, and suspiciously harmless—nothing like the man who gave her a ride. He seems like a different person altogether, and claims he is. By night he is Tom, and by day he is Gabriel. Caden finds herself drawn to the mysteries hidden in his eyes.

Oko mene se nalazila livada prepuna poljskog cvijeća. Prelijevale su se crvene, žute i bijele boje. Oko mene letjeli su prekrasni šareni leptirići. Osjećaj je bio tako spokojan oko moga srca da sam poželjela da zauvijek ostanem ovdje. Kao neki osobni raj ili tako nešto. Čula sam svoje ime kako ga netko doziva, no bilo je to prigušeni zvuk, kao neko tiho zvonce što čujem u daljini. Nije mi se dalo odazvati na taj zvuk. Ovdje mi je bilo lijepo. No odjednom moje prekrasno cvijeće počelo je venuti, leptirići su odletjeli, a oko mene je postojalo sve tamnije i tamnije dok na kraju nije postalo crno.

Osjećala sam ogromni pritisak. Taj osjećaj nikad neću zaboraviti. Disala sam ravnomjerno i vrlo duboko. Sjedila sam na fotelji koja je u zadnje vrijeme postala vrlo popularna. On je često sjedio na njoj, a sada sam i ja stekla tu naviku. Sjedila sam u mraku (navukla sam sve zastore, a počela se spuštati i noć). Željela sam da svaki put kada otvorim oči vidim samo crnu boju, kao da ni nisam otvorila oči. Niz obraze su mi tekle tihe suze. Slijevale su se u potocima, no ipak su bile tihe, bez ijednog jecaja.

Recenzija ~ Samo Budi Tu S.J. Abbo

Kada Tara Martin na pragu svog osamnaestog rođendana upozna svoju; ko zna koju po redu hraniteljsku porodicu; odjednom, budućnost više ne izgleda tako tmurno. Divna porodica i fantastični prijatelji su sve što joj je nedostajalo proteklih godina. Kada je dolazila, nije očekivala da će ovde, napokon, posle dugo vremena ponovo pronaći dom i sreću. 

Nije očekivala ni njega...

Pored upoznavanja sa novom porodicom, privikavanja na novu sredinu i ljude, rešavanja tuđih ljubavnih problema, škole, posla, nasilnika i ruske mafije ko još ima vremena razmišljati o određenoj „horizontalnoj zabavi" pitate se??? 
Čekajte dok upoznate Alekseia Volkova i sve će vam biti jasno.

Or so she thinks.
Capable, strong and patient, Hugo prides himself on being able to fix anything. Trouble is, he’s never tried repairing a chasm in someone’s soul before.

Only 99¢ until May 9th!
Book Trailer:
Q&A with Alix:
Tell me about your latest book.
Like the rest of the books in the Bistro La Bohème series, “The Devil’s Own Chloe” is a contemporary romance set in Paris. Albeit not as “light” as some of my other stories, it will still keep you turning the pages and make you laugh out loud every now and then.

The heroine, Chloe, is an up-and-coming French architect who’s great at her job, but not so good with people. An adoptee who’s seen too much loss in her childhood, Chloe is convinced she’s toxic to everyone who loves her, and so she must push them away to keep them from harm.
Are any of the characters based on specific people?
The characters in this book aren’t based on any one person but rather some of the people I know, and some of the issues they’ve had to grapple with.

What inspires you to write?
Quite a few things, actually. My first novel, What If It’s Love?, was inspired by a friend’s story and Marina Tsvetaeva’s love poems. Under My Skin was inspired by Sting’s 1991 ballad Mad About You. The hero of Falling for Emma—recently blinded rock star Cyril—was influenced by Al Pacino’s Lt. Col. Frank Slade in Scent of a Woman.

The name of the bistro where all the BLB books except Winter’s Gift are set is a tribute to French chansonnier Charles Aznavour’s signature song La Bohème.
Oh, and let’s not forget the incomparable, forever-young-in-my-eyes Colin Firth a.k.a. the best and truest Mr Darcy, and my official muse.
Paris plays an important part in this book, and the entire series. Do you see it as one of your recurrent characters?
In many ways, yes. I adore this city, and I hope my books convey some of its magic. A few years ago, when I visited San Francisco for the first time, I had an impression I was returning to a familiar place thanks to Armistead Maupin’s Tales of the City. My ambition is that when my readers set foot in Paris for the first time, they feel the same warm glow of recognition I experienced when I walked the streets of San Francisco, looking for 28 Barbary Lane.

What do you love about writing? How about a down side?
The best part of writing a book is when your characters begin to prompt their lines, and when things you didn’t even realize you knew jump into your story straight from some secret corner of your brain.

One of the down sides is when you wake up in the morning, reread a scene you were quite pleased with last night, and you realize it’s crap.
Hemingway once said, “There is nothing to writing. All you do is sit down at a typewriter and bleed.” Every writer knows what he meant.

Author Bio:
Alix Nichols is an unapologetic caffeine addict and a longtime fan of Mr. Darcy, especially in his Colin Firth incarnation. She is a Kindle Scout and Dante Rossetti Award winning author of critically acclaimed romantic comedies.
At the age of six, she released her first rom com. It featured highly creative spelling on a dozen pages stitched together and bound in velvet paper.
Decades later, she still loves the romance genre. Her spelling has improved (somewhat), and her books have made Amazon bestseller lists, climbing as high as #1. She lives in France with her family and their almost-human dog.

            Pekle su me oči, a bila sam i umorna. Nisam baš bila sigurna u čemu je fora. Spavala sam cijelu noć bez da sam se ijednom probudila, nisam imala nikakve posebne brige na pameti. Nedjelju sam provela sretno. A sada sam bila nekako umorna i pomalo beživotna. Imala sam osjećaj kao da će se dogoditi nešto što nije dobro. Ne loše, ali ne i dobro. Da, čudno je to bilo, zar ne? Kako nešto može biti ne dobro, ali ne i loše? Tu nije bilo logike, ali taj osjećaj je bio baš takav, sam po sebi užasno čudan. Nisam bila čak ni sigurna od kud mi taj predosjećaj jer sam samo ponekad u potpunosti uspjela prepoznati one prave osjećaje, ali sada me moji osjećaji nisu varali. Čak nisam imala pojma od kud mi sve to. Od sve te sigurnosti u to postala sam zbunjena. Što se, pobogu, događa?!
