review SPOILER ALERT! 2019-10-01 20:58
Süße Liebesgeschichte für Jugendliche, welche sich in einer Kleinstadt abspielt
Fünf Mal Vielleicht - Sara Pepe
Wie planbar ist die Liebe?


Genre: New Adult, Romance
Das Cover ist sehr minimalistisch gestalten. Die Augen stechen hervor und sind sehr detailliert gestalten. Insgesamt sehr gelungen, auch wenn es für einen Jugendroman vermutlich zu wenig bunt ist.
Zur Geschichte:
Die Handlung beginnt mit dem Abschlussfest, welches von Melinda organisiert wird. Auf diesem treffen Sam und Melinda das erste Mal aufeinander. Als sich Sam für sie interessiert, ist Melinda irritiert. Was er wohl von ihr will? 
Melindas trockene Art regt zum Lachen an, auch wenn so mancher die feinen Nuancen ihres Humores nicht verstehen wird. Ich persönlich finde ihren Humor einfach super!
Auch Sams locker-flapsige Art ist urkomisch. Auf der einen Seite kann man nicht anders als die Augen zu verdrehen, wenn er mit einem flapsigen Spruch kontert, während man ihn auf der einen Seite mega süß findet.

Melindas Meinung über Sam wird Stück für Stück revidiert, bis er sich (Achtung: Spoiler!) einen Platz in ihren Herzen erschleicht.  Ich finde es sehr gelungen, wie die Autorin mit den Vorurteilen gespielt und diese dann widerlegt hat. Man bildet sich auch im wahren Leben eine Meinung und ist erstaunt, wenn eine Person dann anders ist, als man gedacht hat. 
Sams Offenbarung bringt eine neue - unerwartete - Wendung in die Geschicht. Auch hier spielt das Leben manchmal anders als erwartet.
+ Fünf Mal Vielleicht ist eine süße Liebesgeschichte für junge Erwachsene. Sam und Melinda sind einfach top zusammen und man kann die Gefühle hautnah miterleben. Soll ich oder soll ich nicht? Wer ein Kopfmensch wie Melinda ist, kann ihre Zweifel sehr gut nachvollziehen. 
+ Es gibt einen Buchtrailer.
- Das Ende. Wie kann die Autorin einfach einen CUT machen? Jaja Fortsetzung, doch wann erscheint diese? Gerne würde ich wissen, wie es weitergeht...

The Bachelor Auction by Rachel Van Dyken
The Bachelor Auction (The Bachelors of Arizona) - Rachel Van Dyken

This was an adorable spin on a Cinderella romance. Jane was the perfect mix of Cinderalla and modern woman. She was introverted enough that I could easily relate to her hatred of going out on the town, but not so shy that she didn't stand up for herself when push came to shove. She even owns a cleaning company - a great modern twist on the theme - and loses a shoe along the way. The downside was Brock (I think). The hero was great. I loved him and his family, although they got a bit over the to towards the end. It was the names that did this book in for me. Even by the end I couldn't keep the brothers apart. All with similar names that start with B, and we meet them within pages of each other. The similar names just sort of merged into one giant Wellington son instead of one older brother and two younger twins. I made a cheat sheet half way through so I could keep them straight. I didn't like it. The story was a lot of fun. There were some sad moments as both Brock and Jane deal with their past and how it has changed the way they cope with the present. There are happy and laughing moments that I didn't want to see end. But the whole brother name thing just hung over it all. I'm hoping that book two helps to separate the brothers a little more for me because they were all a lot of fun and I really want to see how their separate lives all intertwine as they find their love. *This book was received in exchange for an honest review*

Sassy and a Little Bad-Assy by Jessie Lane
Sassy Ever After: Sassy and a little Bad-Assy (Kindle Worlds Novella) - Jessie Lane

I loved this book! Perhaps it was because of my soft spot for vikings and all things Norse. Perhaps her sense of humor was just perfect. Perhaps her couple was so hot together I couldn't let them go. It was a little bit of all of this. It seems like every time I turned a page, I was finding something new to love.

This is a short novella with a lot of kick. It starts with a bang and just keeps on going. Nikki's crazy family had me cracking up, but also understanding her frustration at being so consumed with them that she no longer had her own self. Their interactions were a double-edged sword in her life. On one side showing exactly how needed and loved she was, on the other, not letting her live her own life or follow her own dreams and desires.

But Cruz seems to be the perfect solution, once she forgives him for throwing her grandfather out of the bar. He's quite the dark brooding type, but doesn't get so caught up in it all that he becomes one sided. He's got quite the sense of humor, even if it's a little different than most. He's also one of the sweetest guys I've read about in a long time without losing that Alpha quality I know we all love.

Nights in the Fast Lane
Nights in the Fast Lane: A Contemporary Romantic Comedy - Grace Risata

Another great romantic comedy with a good dose of suspense and hotness from Grace Risata. I adored Izzy - I want to be her friend. She has a way with words that I have not seen in other characters that makes you want to hug her and shake your head at her at the same time. This one has no filter.

Dane is a gentleman - but he doesn't look like one. He wasn't looking for love or friends when he ran from a bad situation, but he isn't afraid to take what life hand him either. There were a few times he was just a little too much of one thing or another, but he was very hard to resist.

At times this seems to run a little long, almost too much story between high points - which you won't hear me say very often. This could have easily been 5 stars with just a little bit of trimming. The end of the story was a great action scene that was very exciting - but also a bit confusing trying to keep track of who was doing what.

Making Spirits Bright Anthology
Making Spirits Bright - Fern Michaels,Rosalind Noonan,Nan Parson Rossiter,Elizabeth Bass

Making Spirits Bright:
This was a very cute story, but I wish she had done more research on the cat, it just wasn't very realistic at times. But while the animals were cute, they weren't part of the actual romance. Melanie really steals the show in this one in her quest to adopt a child. Her determination was amazing and was something she wanted with all her heart. Bryce was a great guy. He was fun and all, but a bit too much of "whatever you want I want". There really wasn't a conflict there. I don't need much, but a little would have been nice.

Runaway Christmas:
This was my favorite of the bunch! Heidi's world is really turned upside down this Christmas as everything seems to go wrong! Even the weather has it in for her and her dreams of a quiet, peaceful Christmas by herself are shattered. Her niece was just the right touch, but I'm not entirely sure how necessary she was to the story. It's almost as if she was added just to give another potential complication. There's a couple romances, and both are really sweet.

Home for Christmas:
This one had a back story and a lot going on for a novella. Very well layered, with a great small town versus big corporation running through it as well. Sam is a great hero - with lots of depth and a lot of development as we move along. Jo was a tad too sweet for my taste. Just a little to goodie.

Christmas on Cape Cod:
This one was my least favorite. A very sugary couple with a very sugary Christmas story. It just wasn't my style at all.

Overall, this was a great mix of Christmas tales. Some were better than others, but it was a great addition to my Christmas reading for the year.
