Pretend
Fake Out - Eden Finley

Maddox is in a pickle.  He wants to keep from upsetting his ex-girlfriend.  So he asks his best friend if he can borrow her brother to play his boyfriend.

 

Damon wonders how he has not met Maddox before.  They do not have a lot in common on the surface, but they actually get along really well.  Is there a future for him with a man who has come out but didn't mean to?

 

This story was such a great read!  I could not put it down.  I love these characters and hope to see them again in future books.  Such heat and sizzle.  I loved the banter and was really invested in them getting their HEA.  I give this book a 4/5 Kitty's Paws UP!

great book and great characters
Fake Wife - Stacey Lynn

Dylan was feeling restless. He hadn’t been out of rehab very long. His excessive drinking had put him there after he had an accident. After touring in his band Shaughnessy for years and then taking their time off to join other bands on their gigs it seemed odd to have nothing to do. He could look back on the last ten years of his life and realize while he loved playing the bass- loved the music- the lifestyle had almost killed him. Too many years drinking and partying too hard and he had paid the price. Dylan was at loose ends and he didn’t know what to do with himself. Dylan knew he wasn’t meant to live a quiet and tranquil life. Dylan knew he couldn’t keep living in isolation but he also couldn’t go back to his old haunts. Dylan looked at the Literacy campaign information Mick- the bands manager had brought over. From the look of the schedule Mick had included the entire thing would take about three months between the organization and planning phase and the actual campaign itself. There would be speaking engagements, commercial shoots, print ads it would fill his time and get him positively in the public eye- hopefully. Dylan read through all twelve pages and on the bottom of the last page was the contact person- Paige Walters. Paige was going to make a presentation on the status of the literacy campaign. It was her brainchild. Reading was Paige’s passion. Public relations,marketing, and promoting were in Paige’s blood. Her father owned a very successful PR firm and Paige worked for him-PRW- and Paige had been wondering i the office halls since she was a toddler. Now as one of the senior account managers and could pitch her brainchild campaign. Dylan went to Paige’s office as she was getting ready to leave. Her assistant Daisy was completely awed at seeing Dylan. Dylan found Paige in the garage. She had forgot to charge her car and had a flat tire Paige had left her office early to go to the grocery store then go home and relax and think about her campaign. Dylan took her to the grocery store she was gonna stop at since it would take two hours for AAA to get there to fix her tire Paige found Dylan attractive. Then Monday her dad said he called Literacy Now and they were all for Dylan but Paige had to more or less had to babysit him. Paige deeply resented that and thought about quitting now again she was just the member of the team and everything she had wanted would more or less be bypassed. Paige’s assistant Daisy handed her a revisal that her sister Ariel had doe on the people invited to the campaign. But Paige had already done the hard work - the research, booking photographers,and banquet spaces but Ariel was stepping in and taking the spotlight. Paige’s dad had always been blind to Ariel’s doings and was even worse now since Ariel’s announcement of being pregnant. Then Dylan came in angry but Paige explained how things were out of her hands now. Dylan was very attracted to Paige and several nights he had erotic dreams and Paige was the star. I absolutely loved this book and loved the plot and pace of this book. This was a great easy romance to read. At times I choked up and at others I chuckled while reading this book. I absolutely loved Paige and Dylan together. I loved how both Dylan and Paige grew over the course of this book. I also loved how Dylan’s bandmates were like brothers to him and they as well as Mick Had Dylan’s back. I couldn’t find anything to criticize and that made me very happy. I loved the characters and the ins and outs of this book and I highly recommend.

great book and great characters
Fake Wife - Stacey Lynn

Drake was Teagan’s boyfriend and had been working fifteen hour shifts as he was a resident at Portland General. Drake was the first long term boyfriend Teagan had and they had met her Jr year of college and had now been together for seven years. Teagan had followed Drake all over the country- she had dropped out of college her Jr yr- while he completed medical school and now his internal medicine residency. Teagan had thought they would be married by now. Teagan wanted a husband, family, and a equine therapy farm for special needs children. Teagan began to doubt Drake still loved her, it had been months since they had been intimate. Teagan now worked at a library. But Teagan went to work and found out funding had been cut and she no longer had a job. Teagan goes home early and finds Drake having sex in their bedroom with another woman. Teagan had probably suspected it but had been too naive to name it for at least six months. Corbin’s grandmother had just died and she was the only woman he had loved in his life for as long as he can remember. Corbin had parents but they were either depressed, drunk, or buttholes. His grandmother had left him her mansion and land but he must be married within six months and be married for at least two years. Corbin thought Lane men aren’t built for faithfulness or families. Teagan had rear ended Corbin in his Mercedes Instead of yelling at her Teagan Corbin took her to a high end restaurant and teagan’s honesty and bluntness was refreshing to Corbin after the women he had known all his life. Then Teagan agrees to Corbins plan for her to be his fake wife and then they headed out to his grandmother’s mansion to have some time to get to know each other. What Corbin doesn’t know is he is the man who starred in Teagan’s sexual fantasies. But Teagan can’t act on them or let Corbin know. It was to be strictly a business arrangement Nothing in Teagan’s life would be real for the next two years and she had to remember that. Trey is Corbin’s best friend and he doesn’t really want to lie to him but one little slip and Corbin could lose his grandmother's home. But there is a strong attraction between Corbin and Teagan. I loved this book. I am not sure I believe in love at first sight but this book made me want to. This was a well written great romance. I love Teagan and Corbin together I love how Caitlyn accepted Tegan and quickly became her friend and how she defended Teagan against Corbin when his father had stopped at the house when Corbin was at work. I also loved how Corbin is a man who has everything he could want supposedly but he needed Teagan. I couldn’t find anything to complain about in this book which is great. I loved the characters and the ins and outs of this book and I highly recommend.

Meine Besten Bücher 2017
Eine allgemeine Theorie des Vergessens: Roman - José Eduardo Agualusa,Michael Kegler
28 Tage lang - David Safier
Die Vegetarierin: Roman - Han Kang,Dr. Ki-Hyang Lee
Der Report der Magd: Roman - Margaret Atwood,Helga Pfetsch
Damals in Nagasaki (Broschiert) - Kazuo Ishiguro
Das merkwürdige Verhalten von Schimpansen in Kinderkleidung: und andere sozialpsychologische Experimente - Felicitas Auersperg
Wirklich wahr!: Die Welt zwischen Fakt und Fake - Simon Hadler,Stefan Rauter
Falco: Die Legende lebt. Die Graphic Novel - Reinhard Trinkler
Der Bankert vom Naschmarkt: Ein Kriminalfall aus dem alten Wien (Graphic Novel) - Gerhard Loibelsberger,Reinhard Trinkler

Das Buchjahr 2017 war wirklich sehr erfolgreich, noch nie habe ich so viele gute Bücher zusammenbekommen, insofern war meine Auswahl der Best of 5 sehr schwer. Im Bereich Belletristik, konnte ich mich aber letztendlich doch entscheiden.

 

Eine allgmeine Theorie des VergessensJosé Eduardo Agualusa
Mein absoluter Favorit im Jahr 2017. Eine wundervolles ironisches Märchen im Stile des lateinamerikanischen magischen Realismus über den Bürgerkrieg in Angola, Schuld und Sühne, Überlebenskampf, Revolution und Einsamkeit, das mich regelrecht vom Hocker gerissen hat.

 

28 Tage lang David Saffier
Meine positive Buchüberraschung in diesem Jahr. Nie hätte ich David Saffier eine derartig leise, wundervolle Geschichte über junge Leute im Warschauer Ghetto zugetraut. Großartig!

 

Die VegetarierinHan Kang
Durch meine A-Z Autorinnenchallenge lese ich vermehrt Bücher von Schriftstellerinnen. Dieses Werk über Unterdrückung und Selbstbestimmung einer Frau im asiatischen Kulturraum hat mich restlos begeistert.

 

Der Report der Magd Margaret Atwood
Mein Lieblingsklassiker 2017. Da heuer die Fernsehserie rauskam, hatte ich nun endlich die Möglichkeit, auf dieses grandiose Werk aufmerksam zu werden, das ich bei seinem Erscheinen 1985 offensichtlich überhaupt nicht bemerkt habe. Eine furchtbare, brilliante feministische Dystopie.

 

Damals in Nagasaki Kazuo Ishiguro
Anlässlich der Verleihung des Literaturnobelpreises habe ich ein paar Ishiguros gelesen, und dieser Roman muss unbedingt auch auf die Liste der High-Fives. Eine asiatische mysteriöse Geschichte, die fast ein bisschen an Murakami erinnert, mit einem sehr intelligenten Twist zum Ende, der reichlich Interpretationsspielraum für den Leser offen lässt.

 

Im Bereich Sachbuch möchte ich Euch zwei geniale Werke ans Herz legen, die mich 2017 sehr begeistert haben

 

Wirklich Wahr! - Simon Hader
Eines der besten Sachbücher, das unter anderem auch in praktischen Beispielen zeigt, wie man in der heutigen Medienlandschaft mit Fakten und Fakenews umgehen sollte. Gut recherchiert, humorvoll aufbereitet und grafisch wundervoll illustriert.

 

Das merkwürdige Verhalten von Schimpansen in Kinderkleidung - Felicitas Auersperg  
Mein Sachbuchhighlight des Jahres 2017! Felicitas Auersperg zeigt durch die Sammlung von spannenden sozialpsychologischen Experimenten genau auf, wie der Mensch wirklich tickt.

 

Seit ein paar Jahren habe ich auch das Genre der Graphic Novel für mich entdeckt und in diesem Bereich möchte ich auch zwei Empfehlungen aussprechen, die 2017 herausgekommen sind

 

Falco - Reinhard Trinkler
Text: Zum Geburtstag des Sängers Falco eine Biografie als Graphic Novel. Eine Innovative und großartige Idee und mein Highlight 2017 in diesem Genre!

 

Der Bankert vom Naschmarkt - Gerhard Loibelsberger und Reinhard Trinkler
Eine sehr gut gezeichnete Geschichte in Form eines Wien-Krimis um die Jahrhundertwende. Ein exzellentes realistisches Sittenbild dieser Zeit und zudem ein spannender Kriminalfall.
