Niby thriller, ale jednak nie, czyli Guillame Musso po raz kolejny
Central Park - Guillaume Musso

Znany raczej z powieści należących do gatunku realizmu magicznego  Guillame Musso czasem jednak robi skok w bok. Tak było w „Telefonie od anioła”, i tak też jest w przypadku „Central Parku”. Ponownie staniemy się świadkami rodzącego się uczucia między dwojgiem ludzi, i ponownie nastąpi to w bardzo nietypowych, interesujących okolicznościach.

 

Bohaterów poznajemy na ławce w parku. Budzą się nie dość, że obok siebie, obcy, i nie dość, że spięci kajdankami (w sensie: ze sobą spięci), to jeszcze ani ona, ani on nie potrafią sobie przypomnieć końcówki poprzedniego wieczoru. Normalnie bym się takim początkiem niespecjalnie zainteresował – brzmi jak rozpoczęcie kolejnej powieści sensacyjno-kryminalnej z gatunku zabili go i uciekł, ale to jest Musso. Znając już jego kilka książek wiem, że można się spodziewać czegoś nieprzewidzianego, zaskakującego. A przy tym lektury lekkiej i niewymagającej. Super na lato.

 

I tak też jest; początkowy thriller wydaje się iść utartą ścieżką, podczas lektury po głowie chodzą nazwiska żyjących z tego gatunku rzemieślników, Tess Gerritsen, Alex Kava itp. Aż tu nagle przychodzi to, na co fan Musso czeka i od tego momentu trudno być niezadowolonym czytelnikiem. Książka faktycznie zbacza z drogi w kierunku zupełnie innych, nieprzewidzianych tematów, i pozostając lekturą lekką dostarcza jednak coś więcej, niż po prostu kolejny thriller z happy endem.

 

Czasem tak jest, że czytelnik robi sobie przerwę od literatury. Bo jakaś powieść go zmęczyła, bo zaczął kilka różnych, a żadna nie chce wciągnąć. I tu z pomocą przychodzi Guillame Musso – mój wybór numer jeden w takich literacko-kacowych sytuacjach. Przy jego książkach się odpoczywa wciąż jednak czytając, czyli można uciec od innego rodzaju kaca: wywołanego odstawieniem książek. Doskonały na chwile z cyklu chcę czytać ale sam nie wiem czego chcę, polecam, sprawdzone.

good story and characters
Full Force (Central Florida Pack) (Volume 2) - Chudney Thomas

Selena held a tranquilizer gun on the drugged alpha werewolf . Her other teammate Wallace bolted the door and said he didn’t understand why the council want an enraged alpha across the country was a good idea and Selena replied neutral territory. Thomas and Selena had been together for awhile until she realized Thomas didn’t feel like she did. Thomas was a cold person but was still protective of Selena hurt even if he didn’t want her.the werewolf had went to swipe at her but Thomas stepped in the way and took the swipe. Thomas didn’t see the danger of him treating her as a woman instead of a guard soldier was doing to the team, The Council was the governing body of werewolf kind. And their purpose was to protect them and nd keep order. Thomas on the Ria Marlett  detail as far as Selena was concerned it was a babysitting job. James and Drake did not like the idea of so many alpha wolves gathered in one hotel. But the Council wanted them all in the same place. So they could keep an eye on all the alphas coming and goings could be tracked. They wanted the Guard to keep the peace and gather intelligence. Drake would go to war for his mate and James would be right there with him. James was also Drake’s second. Ria was his alpha, best friend’s mate, and his friend. The Central  Florida Wolf Pack was home and he would do anything to protect it. James was lonely. Neither James nor his wolf liked Selena putting herself at risk. But he appreciated the show of strength and the political savvy she displayed in doing so. Over the past two days. James had held Selena’s attention  Selena felt protective toward Ria. James smelt like salt water and clean breeze to Selena. Drake will face Angel because he was the Arizona Alpha who was responsible for an attempt made on Ria’s life Selena is off limits to James as she is a guard and forbidden to mate.James can’t get Selena  out of his head. Selena fights her attraction to James and investigates the threats to Ria.  James realizes Selena is his mate.

I like this book a lot.i like d the plot a lot. This was a quick and easy read. I liked the forbidden aspect of Selena’s and James feelings. I didn’t like Selena wasn’t suppose to be able to be with her mate. This just was a good story. I liked this story had a strong female and as a guard. I loved Selena and James together and rooted for them to find  a way to be together as mates are suppose to be. I loved the characters and the ins and outs of this book and I recommend.

Primrose Lane (Harmony Harbor #3)Primrose Lane by Debbie Mason
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is book #3 in the Harmony Harbor series. This book can be read as a standalone novel. For reader enjoyment and understanding, I recommend reading this fun series in order.

Dana AKA Olivia has hidden her identity to protect more than her money. She has taken hit after hit emotionally over the last bit. Just trying to survive takes it toll most days. Then this man, who reminds her too much of her former husband is so infuriating!

Finn is getting picked on by the whole family to stay. Like working with Doctors Without Borders is not good enough. Then there is the matchmaking. The woman they want him with is not his type. Or maybe too much his type.

This series is full of fun and humor. Such interesting and quirky characters. Just overall a fun read. There were times I wanted to reach into the book and smack the leading man, but hey, that just makes it an interactive book. I cannot wait to see what this author will give us next!

Sunset in Central Park By Sarah Morgan 99 cents
Sunset in Central Park (Hqn) - Sarah Morgan

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?

Navel Gazing Novel: “Central Station” by Lavie Tidhar
Central Station - Lavie Tidhar

"The Shambleau called Carmel came to Central Station in spring, when the smell in the air truly is intoxicating. It is a smell of the sea, and of the sweat of so many bodies, their heat and their warmth, and it is the smell of humanity’s spices and the cool scent of its many machines."

 

In “Central Station” by Lavie Tidhar

 

This is a navel gazing novel; a friend of mine would say it's a novel about the human condition. Back in the day, this was the stuff that interested me less. But they say SF at its best is allegorical and because contemporary versions are all about we live in navel gazing times, this one was much up my alley. Quoting from “Blade Runner”, in one of the most wonderful Roy Batty lines, just so you know how geeky I am: "I've felt wind in my hair, riding test boats off the black galaxies and seen an attack fleet burn like a match and disappear. I've seen it...felt it!", one can sense what makes us human even in a SF milieu. This existential part is what makes the genre so appealing to me. I wonder when they will do a film based on Kim Stanley Robinson's Mars stuff? It has to be high-quality to do justice, casting & special effects both, so it’s going cost a bunch, also there are some themes they might not want to show the masses at this stage, perhaps that is some factor why, surprisingly, they haven't tried a film yet... big bucks to be made though if they do it well! How will you cram, what, 1500 pages of well-crafted prose into 90 minutes of Hollywood glitz? We all remember what happened to e.g. "Dune" when they tried that.

 

 

If you're into SF, read on.
