Review:Protect Me (Rivers Edge #4) by Lacey Black
Protect Me - Lacey Black

 

Nate Stevens loves three things: Work, Family, Women. In that order. Having absolutely no desire to follow in three of his siblings’ footsteps by settling down, Nate lives for his work as a firefighter. That’s why his chance meeting with Lia leaves him unsettled like never before. There’s just something about the beautifully shy and reserved woman that he can’t walk away from.

Run. Hide. Keep moving. That’s exactly what Lia Walker has done for the last nine months. Escaping from her past, Lia continues to move from place to place before finding herself in the small town of Rivers Edge, Missouri. Following a chance encounter with her new boss’ brother, Nate, which leaves Lia feeling confused and vulnerable for the first time in months, Lia has to make a decision: to run or to stay.

When pasts are finally exposed, Nate and Lia find themselves at a crossroads. Nate will do anything to protect Lia from her past, but the question remains: Will Lia let him? When Lia’s past finally catches up with her, will running be the only way to protect the ones they love most in this world?

Another great book in the Rivers Edge series. This book was a bit different and darker than the previous books.

Lia is trying to escape her dark past. But that is easier said than done, even when things are in the past she still relives them in her nightmares. She also is still on a run and in constant fear.

It doesn’t make it any easier when she is starting to fall for Nate and also really enjoys the family that comes with him, something she never had.  As mentioned because of her past the book is a bit darker and a bit more suspenseful as the previous books but just as good. I really enjoyed it.

I liked Lia she is strong and never really gave up, even when it seemed like she had. She is also really funny and smart. She was a perfect fit not only for Nate but also for the Stevens Family.

Nate of course had also some issues form his past he had to deal with and I was really kind of surprised to learn what it was. I would have never guessed l knowing him from previous books.  I also really enjoyed him, also very funny and smart and protective over not only Lia but everyone he cares about. There was just one moment in the book I wanted to smack him, that he could not figure out what is going on, especially knowing her backstory and everything that was going on.  But luckily it past fast.

Again I loved the role the entire Family played in this book. I just can’t get enough of this Family. They are the prefect funny all around great family from next door.

Overall, really loved this book and I can’t wait to read Will’s story in the final full length Rivers Edge book.

I rate it 4 ½ ★

Review: Expect Me (Rivers Edge #3) by Lacey Black
Expect Me (Rivers Edge Book 3) - Lacey Black

 

Travis Stevens struggles to move on and forget about the one amazing night he spent tangled up in the sheets with a beautiful woman who disappeared just before dawn. Now she’s just a memory that he can’t ignore. But what do you do when the woman invades your thoughts day and night?

Josselyn McCray spent one perfect night wrapped up in the strong arms of a handsome stranger before running out in the early morning light. Now she’s out of money and luck and forced to make some life-altering decisions about her future. A future that is going to involve the man she hasn’t been able to forget.

Brought together by one night of passion, Travis and Josselyn are now linked forever. Will Travis and Josselyn be torn apart by demanding responsibilities and the stresses of getting to know each other? Or will they overcome the odds and find their way to happily ever after?

One thing is certain: life isn’t always what you expect.

 

 

 

 

I’m so glad that I stumbled upon Lacey Black. She has become one of my favorite authors and one of my go to authors when I’m in a reading slump. And her books always pull me out. This book is part of the series, but can be read as a standalone but it helps to have read the precious books. Which are also really great by the way. I just love the world and characters of Rivers Edge that Lacey Black hands created. Fun, loving .sexy and above all family. I loved the Family dynamics of the Stevens family , they are so much fun to read and to follow, and rather realistic. What I also love about these books is that the side characters are just as important as the main couple. They play and equal role in each book. Now to our main couple for this book. We have Travis Stevens this book and his one night stand Josselyn form the end of last book at his sister’s wedding. I really enjoyed those two …… and how they handled the pregnancy. In fact Travis after the shock of the news was great. He did everything he could to make sure she and the baby are taking care of. He actually was really happy. He worked hard to make everything perfect. He ever worked a little too hard at times. But I could understand where he was coming from a little. And I really never doubted him, his feelings toward Joss or the baby. While I really liked and enjoyed Joss, I also thought she could have been a little more interdependent. Even pregnant and in a new town I thought she could have done a little bit more for herself and maybe even for the baby and Travis. Yes, she fit perfectly into the family and they took her in as one of their own but I thought she was just a little to depended on them and Travis at times. But overall it all fit into the story line and just fit. Travis and Joss of course have some wicked chemistry and know how to set the sheets in fire, pregnant or not. I thought they were the perfect match for each other and balanced each other out nicely. The ending was while predictable absolutely prefect and I really could not see a better ending to their story. Overall, great book and I look forward to see more of the Stevens family in the next couple books.

I rate it 4 ★

Niemand verschwindet einfach so
Niemand verschwindet einfach so: Roman -... Niemand verschwindet einfach so: Roman - Catherine Lacey,Bettina Abarbanell

Niemand verschwindet einfach so

Catherine Lacey

Übersetzt von Bettina Abarbanell

 

Gebunden mit Schutzumschlag, 256 Seiten

Aufbau Verlag

 

22,00 €  *)

Inkl. 7% MwSt.


Zum Buch: http://www.aufbau-verlag.de/index.php/niemand-verschwindet-einfach-so.html

 

 

»Da ist ein wildes Biest im Herzen dieses Romans, und Sie werden es treffen.« The New Yorker  

 

 

International gefeiert als eines der eindrücklichsten Debüts der letzten Jahre: Niemand verschwindet einfach so beschreibt den gewagten Versuch einer Frau, ihr bisheriges Leben hinter sich zu lassen. Elyria begibt sich in die Ferne, nur um festzustellen, dass man vor sich selbst niemals flüchten kann. Ein intimes Abenteuer – und die Geschichte einer Selbstfindung. 

 

»Als wir an jenem Abend nach Hause gingen, beide nach dem Bourbon riechend, der uns auf die Knie getröpfelt war, wusste ich, dass mein Mann ein Song war, dessen Text ich vergessen hatte, und ich ein verwackeltes Foto von jemandem, den er mal geliebt hatte.« Elyria löst ein One-Way-Ticket nach Neuseeland und verlässt ihren Mann, ohne eine Nachricht zu hinterlassen. In Neuseeland angekommen, setzt sie sich immer riskanteren und surrealer werdenden Begegnungen mit den Einwohnern und der Tierwelt aus. Doch ihre eigentliche Reise ist die Reise in ihr eigenes Herz der Finsternis. Verfolgt vom Tod der Schwester, ausgestoßen von der Mutter, zermürbt von der Eintönigkeit ihrer Ehe, droht Elyria an ihren eigenen Gedanken verlorenzugehen. Auf fast hypnotische Weise beschreibt Catherine Lacey eine Frau, die verrückt wird, allein durch sich selbst. Doch niemand verschwindet einfach so, egal wie sehr er es versucht. 

 

 

Meine Meinung:

 

Ich bin durch das sehr interessant gemachte Cover auf das Buch aufmerksam geworden und wollte erfahren, was hinter diesem Cover und dem Titel steckt. 

 

Leider muss ich aber sagen, dass ich einfach nicht in das Buch rein gekommen bin. Ich kam mit dem Schreibstil nicht so gut zurecht und die Protagonistin war mir einfach zu suspekt. 

 

Man kann hierzu eigentlich sagen, dass man von Anfang bis Ende in die Gedankenwelt der Hauptprotagonistin eingetaucht ist und genau das war mir einfach zu viel. 

 

Die Autorin hat hier ein sehr anspruchvolles Buch geschrieben, das sehr einzigartig ist und die düstere Stimmung sehr gut rüber bringen konnte. Es waren auch viele Zitate enthalten. 

 

Ich muss aber sagen, dass ich von Anfang bis Ende mit der Protagonistin nicht warm geworden bin, auch mit der Art der Geschichte leider nicht, es war einfach nichts für mich. 

 

Es ist jetzt wirklich schwer zu bewerten. Ich habe etwas völlig anderes erwartet, auch das Ende konnte mich leider gar nicht begeistern. Andererseits kann ich mir aber vorstellen, dass es für einige Leser eine tolle Lektüre ist, für mich aber leider nicht. Von mir bekommt das Buch 3 Sterne.

A Fun Ethnography of British People at the Turn of the First Century
The Year 1000: What Life Was Like at the Turn of the First Millennium, An Englishman's World - Robert Lacey,Danny Danziger

As I said above, this book was quite fun to read. It was an interesting angle to use archaeological evidence and historic documentation to extrapolate an ethnography of the early English people. The division of the chapters to reflect aspect of culture based on what the common man of the day would have relied on, the Julian work calendar, was quite excellent, and aided in driving the point home. Due to the main focus of archaeology on elites, this work's focus on the common man was that much more impressive. The dearth of information that is sadly given to the common person invariably made the research that much more arduous, yet the sheer wealth of information covered betrays this dearth, and makes the information displayed that much more impressive.

 

My only complaint is that, in a couple of chapters, it dragged a little bit, disrupting the overall flow of the book. Had that not occurred, it would easily have been a five star work.

Reading progress update: I've read 151 out of 432 pages.
My Sweet Angel: The True Story of Lacey Spears, the Seemingly Perfect Mother Who Murdered Her Son in Cold Blood - John Glatt

It's amazing how hot the lit fire of "This book is due in 5 days" is. Super motivating. The goal is to chew out at least 50 pages a day, which so far I've been keeping to. It's hard though. This case makes my stomach turn.
