review SPOILER ALERT! 2017-05-19 10:02
Schöne Geschichte - aber mir fehlt etwas
Kiro's Emily - Für immer: Eine Rosemary Beach Novella - Lene Kubis,Abbi Glines,Heidi Lichtblau

Ich muss ehrlich sagen, dass ich etwas hin und hergerissen bin. Zum einen liebe ich die Bücher von Abbi Glines und habe mich sehr auf diese Geschichte gefreut. Anderseits fehlt mir da einfach was.

 

Mir persönlich ging das nämlich erst mal alles zu schnell. Kiro ist der Rockgott und kann jede haben. Als Emily dann mit ihrer Cousine hinterher reist, die irgendwann bei den Stars im Hotel landet, trifft Emily schließlich auf Kiro. Er sieht sie und weiß sofort: Das ist mein Engel und nun die eine! Emily ist noch etwas unsicher, lässt sich aber letztendlich (zu) schnell darauf ein und zieht bei ihm ein. Um für ihn zu arbeiten ... Kiro führt sich meiner Meinung nach viel zu besitzergreifend auf. Er will nur noch mit ihr schlafen, sie in seinem Zimmer halten und am besten guckt sie auch keiner mehr an. Dass Emily das so alles mitgemacht hat, fand ich schon merkwürdig, aber nun ja ... manchmal macht die Liebe mit uns komische Dinge.
Zum Schluss ging das alles ratzfatz. Schwanger, Hochzeit, Unfall und mir kam das vor, als würde das nur mal eben erwähnt werden.


Meiner Meinung nach wären hier noch gute 50 - 100 Seiten gegangen. Dann wäre vielleicht auch ein Taschenbuch gegangen, denn das fehlt ja nun im Regal. :)

Was mir auch ein bisschen fehlte, war dieser typische "Kitsch" (wie ich es immer gerne nenne), denn irgendwie gehört das zu dieser Reihe dazu. Aber das war nun nichts weltbewegendes.


Schön fand ich auf jeden Fall die Idee der Geschichte und natürlich wie immer den Schreibstil von Abbi Glines.
Das Cover ist ebenfalls schön und gefällt mir gut.

 

Mein Fazit: Kurzweilig, schön, aber da wie gesagt - da wäre noch was gegangen.

You were Mine - Unvergessen: Roman (Rosemary Beach, Band 9) - Abbi Glines,Heidi Lichtblau

Ich habe bisher alle Vorgänger der Rosemary Beach Reihe gelesen und wurde bisher immer gut unterhalten. Hier findet man immer die perfekte Mischung aus tiefen Gefühlen, Drama, Erotik und auch ein bisschen Kitsch.

 

Auf den Teil mit Bethy und Tripp habe ich mich besonders gefreut, denn bereits in einem der Vorgänger begann ihre dramatische Geschichte ... Wir lesen nicht nur im Wechsel von Bethy und Tripp, sondern bekommen auch ab und zu einen Einblick in die Vergangenheit. Bethy und Tripp hatten eine wunderschöne Zeit, aber leider gab es auch etwas, das Bethys Herz "zerstörte" und gerade deswegen fällt es ihr so schwer, Tripp eine zweite Chance zu geben. Natürlich gibt Tripp nicht auf und kämpft um seine große Liebe.

Bethy geht es anfangs wirklich schlecht und sie trauert immer noch aufgrund des tragischen Unfall.

Nebenbei wird ein großes Missverständnis aufgeklärt und Bethy wird klar, was sie wirklich will.

 

Wahrscheinlich hätte ich der Geschichte auch 5 Sterne gegeben, denn sie war wirklich toll. Allerdings bekam ich irgendwann den Eindruck, dass sich das Ganze etwas zieht und irgendwas fehlte mir hier drin. Aber ansonsten kann ich absolut nichts bemängeln und wie immer freue ich mich auf dem nächsten Teil.

 

Ich empfehle unbedingt die Vorgänger zu lesen, da man sonst evtl. nicht ganz aufgeklärt sein könnte.

Von mir gibt es trotz allem eine ganz klare Leseempfehlung!

Fallen Too Far
Fallen Too Far - Abbi Glines There is barely any plot in this novel, but it went from 0 to 100 real quick. Are people really like this in real life? Who enjoys being called "baby"? Also, Nan is a bit of an odd name for a girl considering people refer to their grandmothers as "Nan". Any, plotwise, this book was ridiculous, and curse it for being the first in a series because my curiosity about what could possibly happen next is making me want to read the next one.

Under the Lights (The Field Party #2) by Abbi Glines Review
Under the Lights (Field Party) - Abbi Glines

Goodreads Synopsis: In the follow-up to Abbi Glines’s #1 New York Times bestseller Until Friday Night—three teens from a small southern town are stuck in a dramatic love triangle.

Willa can’t erase the bad decisions of her past that led her down the path she’s on now. But she can fight for forgiveness from her family. And she can protect herself by refusing to let anyone else get close to her.

High school quarterback and town golden boy Brady used to be the best of friends with Willa—she even had a crush on him when they were kids. But that’s all changed now: her life choices have made her a different person from the girl he used to know.

Gunner used to be friends with Willa and Brady, too. He too is larger than life and a high school football star—not to mention that his family basically owns the town of Lawton. He loves his life, and doesn’t care about anyone except himself. But Willa is the exception—and he understands the girl she’s become in a way no one else can.

As secrets come to light and hearts are broken, these former childhood friends must face the truth about growing up and falling in love…even if it means losing each other forever.

 

 

Review:

 

I was really disappointed in this book. I loved the first book in the series and was so excited to read the next instalment. Unfortunately it just did not live up to my expectations.

 

I struggled to find redeeming qualities of this story as all the storylines were too far fetched and overly dramatic. Firstly, I thought through being in all 3 (Willa, Brady and Gunner) of their heads it would provide a greater insight into their dynamic but instead all we got were the two boys internally fighting for Willa and both thinking they know whats best for her….boring! Their internal monologue was so back and forth, first Brady couldn’t have Willa because he could never understand pain like hers but then Gunner couldn’t have her either because his life was too messed up and he would end up hurting her, neither of them were capable of another thought that didn’t revolve around Willa!! The 3 of them were best friends when they were younger yet we didn’t get a single scene of the 3 of them hanging out together. Gunner and Willa would shut Brady out because he has “a perfect home life and can’t handle darkness” since when does your home life determine whether you can be a good friend! This was just too ridiculous.

 

Then there’s Gunners family, just wow! Talk about drama overload. So his dad wasn’t his dad and it was bad enough who his real dad was but what really annoyed me was we never got an explanation from his mom. I know she explained things to Gunner behind the scenes but I would have really liked to have heard the explanation for why she was the way she was and didn’t care for Gunner. I feel it would have made a better story if his mom had loved him and it could have been the two of them against the rest of the family. I suppose that wouldn’t have fit with his “I’ve never felt loved” thing but I just couldn’t buy both of his parents not caring and his whole family being a dramatic mess.

 

Willa’s grandmother was also being way overprotective. Yes she made a mistake and it had horrible consequences but her grandmother needed to let her spend time with her friends and trust that she wasn’t going to get knocked up like her mom (which had nothing to do with the mistake she made). Keeping her from socialising was not going to help her move on with her life. I also felt that Willa never actually dealt with what happened to her. She went through something very traumatic yet it was just something else that took a backseat to the love triangle.

 

We had all this drama throughout the book and then voila last chapter everything gets worked out...how convenient. It ended quite abruptly and left us with so many unanswered questions! Brady never even found out about Willa and Gunner, some friends they were.

 

I hate to do this but I had to give it 2.5 stars as there was absolutely no character development, it was way too whiney and too focused on the love triangle that everything else was sort of brushed to the side. I’m really hoping the next book will be more in line with the first and doesn’t leave me down like this one did.

Until Friday Night Book Review
Until Friday Night (A Field Party) - Abbi Glines

Eh, the characters are okay in this one but I really felt like the plot was wayyy too over dramatic to enjoy. I partially think its because I'm not a teen any more so I had more qualms with how the characters reacted to situations then I may have ten years ago.

 

Maggie doesn't speak anymore, not since she watched her mother die. Now she's living with her cousin Brady and her aunt and uncle. West is the star of the football team and Brady's best friend. But no one knows he's watching his father die at home. When Maggie and West meet there's an immediate connection. Problem is, Brady has warned the entire football team to stay away from his cousin....

 

This isn't really anything new in contemporary YA, jock is a jerk, girl is a bit of a Mary Sue. The two fall in love almost at first sight...yada yada.

 

It's definitely more for mature teens as it deals with death in the family and there are some sexual scenes throughout.
