Er weiß, wie man gewinnt. Aber weiß er auch, wie man das Herz einer Frau gewinnt?

Allie Hayes steckt in einer Krise. Sie hat keinen Plan für die Zukunft und außerdem ein gebrochenes Herz. Zügelloser Sex ist sicher nicht die Lösung ihrer Probleme, aber dem unglaublichen Hockeystar Dean Di Laurentis kann sie – zumindest in dieser Nacht – nicht widerstehen. Dean dagegen bekommt immer, was er will. Deshalb kann er es auch nicht fassen, dass Allie nach ihrer gemeinsamen Nacht nichts mehr von ihm wissen will. Dean findet, Allie muss um jeden Preis erobert werden. Aber weiß er wirklich, worauf er sich da einlässt?

 

Meine Meinung:

Ich habe die anderen beiden Teile der Reihe ja auch schon mit Begeisterung gelesen. Daher habe ich mich sehr gefreut, dass mir der Verlag auch den 3. Teil der Reihe zu Rezensionszwecken zur Verfügung gestellt hat. 


Der Einstieg in das Buch ist mir wieder sehr gut gelungen, der Schreibstil ist sehr flüssig und ich war gleich in der Geschichte drin. 


Es fing auch direkt schon sehr humorvoll an, was mir sehr gut gefallen hat. Die Charaktere fand ich total toll, vor allem Dean. Aber auch das Wiedersehen mit den Charakteren aus den anderen Bänden war sehr schön. 


Sehr schön und realistisch beschrieben fand ich Deans Weiterentwicklung, vom absoluten Frauenheld mit kurzen Abenteuern bis hin zu einem Mann, der merkt, dass ihm eine Frau ausnahmsweise nicht mehr aus dem Kopf geht und sie öfters treffen möchte. Das fand ich sehr treffend beschrieben. Daher hat mir Dean als Charakter auch so gut gefallen. 


Der Erotikanteil war schon sehr groß, was mich dann teilweise ein wenig gestört hat, weil es die Liebesgeschichte ein wenig in den Hintergrund gedrängt hat, aber das war auch absolut der einzigste Kritikpunkt an diesem Buch. 


Alles in allem kann ich hier eine klare Kauf- und Leseempfehlung für alle New Adult Fans aussprechen. Mir hat es total Spaß gemacht, dieses Buch zu lesen und habe es als tollen Abschluss dieser Reihe empfunden. Von mir bekommt das Buch sehr gute 4,5 Sterne.

The Perils of Typos

Every time I type "cross-posted at BookLikes" on a review, I get a bit worried that I'm going to miss the second "k." Anyone else ever worry about that?

Half-Off Ragnarok (InCryptid #3) by Seanan McGuire
Half-Off Ragnarok - Seanan McGuire
Alex Price is following his family tradition of Cryptizoology. He is living with his non-human grandparents (he has a complicated family tree), working as a zoo keeper in the reptile house and continuing his research

Of course, the zoo authorities don’t know that his research is into the breeding habits of basilisk and tracking whether the local fricken population is changing. All the while trying to juggle a relationship with the big cat keeper, Shelby while keeping all his secrets
 
Then people start dying - turned to stone. With his basilisks, a local gorgon population and a cockatrice running around, there are several possible culprits.
 
 
Hail! Hail the God of Scales and Silence!
 
Yes, every book review in this series is going to start with a homage to the Aislinn Mice who are made of utter awesome. And my main complaint about this book is there wasn’t nearly enough Aislinn mice. More of the mice!
 
I have to admit I went into this book with an immense amount of hostility - because the protagonist was changed from Verity to her brother Alex. And it is Change and I liked Verity so I opened this fully prepared to say how wrong and unjust and awful this is and, in the name of the mice, we must bring Verity back.
 
Thankfully I was wrong - or, rather I was overreacting. I liked Alex as much as I liked Verity - even though they are very different people - and I like that, that they were clearly different people with very different approaches to their family legacy (while Verity is conflicted, Alex embraces it despite the frustrations). His focus on science, breeding and studying crytpids in the wild with a focus on reptiles and amphibians is very different from Verity and her urban focus. But he was still so interesting, utterly invested, scholarly (same as Verity with a different focus) and a whole lot of fun. I am happy with Verity and Alex
 
I also really like how we explore their unconventional childhood and how that has affected their relations with others and the constant
 
But even better is Shelby the Designated Love Interest who is so many more times more interesting than Dominic. It would have been easy to make her less scholarly or educated or science based than Alex, especially since he’s the geek and she is blonde and attractive - but I love how that is definitely challenged and she is more than happy to stand toe-to-toe with him intellectually or action-wise. They work really well together, are great fun and she has a nice developed history and a clear personality. I liked her a lot.
 

Of course, the star of all this is the world building. The way cryptids work alongside natural world - both the non-sentient and the fully intelligent. I love the little nuggets like why cockatrice and basilisk petrify. I love the careful world building - like how a gorgon community cannot have livestock because they’ll petrify the animals. It’s little details like that that really make the world
 
As well as bigger elements that point to a really well detailed and carefully designed world: like the fact the Covenant, which hates all things Cryptid, basically declared war on all Australian wildlife- because Australian wildlife. Which again is an insight on Cryptozoology in different parts of the world (like the Australian concern for invasive species). It’s these details and development that make this world truly special
 
On top of that I love how the cryptozoology meets standard zoology and Alex’s concern that the Fricken - a feathery frog - is going to be discovered. I like that there are concerns around cryptids that doesn’t just concern how dangerous they are or people they’re killing - it adds an extra level of Cryptic management to the Price family’s mission

Boystown - Season 7
BOYSTOWN Season Seven - Jake Biondi

Oh this was once again...tasty!

 

 

There are not many who can pull off this level of soap opera drama and do it so well but Jake Biondi has a knack that just can't be matched.  This was every bit as enjoyable as the other seasons and the backstabbing, cheating and crazy antics being had here are so damn enjoyable I swear we could hardly keep a straight face. Marco and I had a blast!

 

 

Once again, trust no one...

 

 

because you never know what will come next...

 

 

or who is telling the truth...

 

 

or who is sleeping with who...

 

 

or who wants to strangle who.

 

 

I only just wish there had been some scenes in the hospital...

 

 

Bwahahahaha!!!  Because I swear at one point there may have been not 1...

 

 

but 9 cast members in a hospital bed.  Gawd I love it.  

 

At this point, I honestly could handle a few being killed off...

 

 

Because...quite frankly the number of characters is overwhelming and keeping track of all the details can get to be a lot.  And yet, I am completely consumed.  

 

I only hope Camille remains...because there are very few like her around.

 

 

Once again the number of cliffhangers left our minds racing! And with 2 funerals in store, who will be in the caskets...actually dead??  We shall see.

 

Can't wait for this crazy train to continue!!
