Review: Her Wish by Sophie H. Morgan
Her Wish: A Playboy Genie Romance - Sophie H. Morgan

http://witandsin.blogspot.com/2017/07/review-her-wish-by-sophie-h-morgan.html

 

Forget Powerball – I totally want a ticket to win a wish from one of Sophie H. Morgan’s Genies!Her Wish is a fresh and fun paranormal romance. I loved Ms. Morgan’s whole concept of celebrity Genies, the corporation that employs them, and wishes being granted to weekly lottery winners.

Charlie believes in hard work, not wishes. And when her best friend buys her a lottery ticket and Charlie wins, Charlie would rather chew glass than make a wish. Unfortunately for her, Jax Michaels – the Genie who is supposed to grant Charlie her wish – can’t let her just skip out on her wish. On the surface, the stunningly gorgeous, oh-so-charming Jax who has women throwing themselves at his feet is everything Charlie despises. But when he keeps popping in, the two actually start to get to know one another and the real fun begins. I loved that Charlie threw Jax for a loop by being unimpressed with his looks, charm, magic, and celebrity.

Charlie has her reasons for not wanting a wish, and though it took a while to learn her reasons, I understood why it was too personal for her to immediately open up and share with Jax. As for Jax, I – like Charlie – wasn’t immediately bowled over by him because he was arrogant as could be. This actually worked really well for the story, because it gave me a chance to start liking Jax alongside Charlie. There’s more to Jax than most people see. Most people don’t look past his looks or charm, just like most people don’t look past Charlie’s “plain Jane” looks and acerbic wit. Both of them are smart, flawed people who come into their own over the course of the story and their personal journeys had me as engaged as their romance. Charlie and Jax make an excellent couple and I found it difficult to put Her Wish down because the chemistry they had was so appealing. Even when they’re fighting, sparks fly and they’re equally matched. Jax and Charlie simply work on every level. They don’t instantly fall in love. Heck, they don’t even instantly fall in lust. Their love story is a natural progression as they come to know each other and I just loved that. It’s not smooth sailing for these two. Their strong personalities, differing views, and Charlie’s old wounds and insecurities mean that it’s a bumpy road to happily ever after, but it’s a road well worth travelling.

Her Wish is the first book in Ms. Morgan’s Playboy Genie series and I’m can’t wait to delve further into the world of the Genies. I was fascinated by the bits and pieces of WFY that we got to see and the Genies who worked there. I’m definitely hoping future books show us more of how WFY works. There are also a couple of supporting characters, both magical and mortal, who I’m really hoping get books of their own one day. Jax’s Handler, Luka, Jax’s assistant, Josh, and Charlie’s roommate, Kate, added extra humor and heart to the story and helped make the world come alive.

Her Wish is unique, fun, and as charming as Jax himself. I adored Jax and Charlie’s romance and I can’t wait to read the next Playboy Genie story, His Command.

Book Review For: THE SCANDAL OF IT ALL by Sophie Jordan
The Scandal of It All: The Rogue Files - Sophie Jordan

THE SCANDAL OF IT ALL by Sophie Jordan is book Two in "The Rogue Files".
The heroine is Graciela, the Duchess of Autenberry who is a mother to her own child and has Stepchildren, in addition she is going to be 36 soon. So, she is a different type of heroine instead of the young virgin one. But she was a neglected wife and with the lost of a dear friend around her age as put her in a mood to have an exciting affair.
Colin, Lord Strickland is younger and even her stepsons friend but that doesn't stop him from wanting her nor from Graciela desiring him.
I love Ms. Jordan's book and this was such a nice change from the regular romance book you see.
Overall Loved this book!
"My honest review is for a special copy I voluntarily read."

Une géniale petite recette bien agencée d'émotions, de rires et de légères lectures de plage. Un parfait YA à glisser entre de plus lourdes lectures. Une plume pour vos moments de relaxation.

Gefährliche Freunde
Verzaubert, Band 2: Gefährliche Freunde - Anna-Sophie Caspar

Titel: Verzaubert - Gefährliche Freunde

Autor: Anna-Sophie Caspar

Verlag: impress

 

Meine Meinung: Da ich den ersten Band der Reihe bereits gelesen habe, wurden meine Erwartungen von den Erfahrungen aus diesem geprägt. Daher waren meine Erwartungen an diesen Band, dass es sich um eine spannende Fantasygeschichte handelt, die in Romantik eingepackt wurde.
Genau das war es auch tatsächlich. Die Spannung war immer präsent. Das lag vor allem daran, dass es ziemlich schnelle Wendungen gab und es lag auch daran, dass man als Leser ebenfalls die Charakteren nicht ganz einschätzen konnte und man dadurch im Dunkeln darüber war, wem Effie trauen kann und wem nicht. In einem Fall ist es allerdings vorhersehbar gewesen. Die Liebe von Effie und Eden ist eigentlich immer anwesend, aber niemals zu aufdringlich. Es ist eher ein stiller Begleiter, der einen durch das Buch leitet.

Die Geschichte folgt mit den Erzählungen dem Hauptcharakter Effie. Das ist eine wirklich gute Wahl, denn Effie ist noch sehr fremd in der Elementare-Welt. Genauso geht es dem Leser schließlich auch (selbst wenn man im ersten Band der Reihe schon mal Elementare-Luft schnuppern durfte.) Außerdem ist der Charakter sehr gut ausgearbeitet. Sie hat eine Vergangenheit und Motivation, die auch für den Leser gut nachvollziehbar sind. Durch all diese Punkte kann man sich sehr gut mit Effie identifizieren und erlebt die Geschichte aus erster Hand mit.

Die Idee der Geschichte finde ich nach wie vor gut. Die Sache mit den Elementaren habe ich zuvor auch noch nie gelesen.
Den Schreibstil der Autorin finde ich wunderbar. Er ist angenehm zu lesen und ist ausgeglichen, was die Gewichtung von Dialog und Erzählungen angeht.

Dem zweiten Band der Verzaubert-Reihe gebe ich 5 von 5 Sternen. Eine tolle Umsetzung der Idee und ein Hauptcharakter, mit dem man sich gut identifizieren kann, haben da definitiv geholfen.
