Dramatische Liebesgeschichte, die trotz kleiner Unstimmigkeiten Spaß macht
Cole & Autumn – A San Francisco College Romance (College-WG-Reihe 2) - Christiane Bößel

A San Francisco College Romance ist eine Buchreihe, die bisher 4 Teile umfasst. Cole & Autumn ist der zweite Teil. Die Bücher sind in sich abgeschlossen, die weiteren Teile erzählen Geschichten der Nebencharaktere. 

Worum geht es: 
Cole sieht richtig gut aus, hat Erfolg bei den Frauen und einen großen Traum: Er will Profi-Footballplayer werden. Dank seines Stipendiums trainiert er dafür jeden Tag an der San Francisco State University mit seinen Kumpels. Natürlich haben die Jungs in ihrem Alter auch viel für Partys und Bars übrig und so lernt er eines Tages Autumn, die Schwester seines Teamkollegen Gavin, kennen. Doch Autumn hat mit Sportlern bisher nur schlechte Erfahrungen gemacht und will sich, auch aufgrund ihrer eigenen Probleme lieber verschanzen.

Meine Meinung: 
Ich habe ein wenig gebraucht, um in die Geschichte rein zu kommen, doch die Charaktere wurden mir von Seite zu Seite sympathischer. Die einzelnen Figuren sind gut auseinander zu halten und handeln größtenteils schlüssig. Es gab zwei bis drei Situationen, die ich nicht wirklich gut gelöst fand und die charakterlich auch nicht ganz passten. Trotzdem mochte ich die Geschichte und die Charaktere darin sehr gern. Das Buch ist interessant, romantisch, tragisch und teilweise höchst dramatisch. Der Schreibstil war locker und leicht verständlich, so, dass ich das Buch an einem Tag lesen konnte. Die Wortvielfalt bei den erotischen Szenen hielt sich jedoch eher in Grenzen. Das Buch ist abwechselnd aus den Perspektiven von Cole und Autumn geschrieben, so, dass man sich in beide Charaktere gut hineinversetzen kann. 

Das Cover wirkt nicht zu überladen, ist farblich ansprechend und passt zum Genre. Es ist ein wenig 0815, aber das stört mich hier ganz und gar nicht. 

Auch wenn hier zum ersten Band der Reihe ein wenig gespoilert wurde, würde ich die Geschichte von Ethan & Claire gerne noch lesen, da ich die beiden Charaktere mochte. Der dritte Band interessiert mich ebenfalls sehr. Die Figuren aus dem vierten Band sind mir noch nicht bekannt. 

Fazit: 
Eine teils schöne Liebesgeschichte, die aufgrund der Thematik ein wenig tiefer geht, jedoch leider nicht ihr ganzes Potential ausschöpfen kann. Trotzdem empfehlenswert.

The Crush Collision 

by Danielle Ellison

(Southern Charmed #2)

Publication Date: February 18, 2019

Publisher: Entangled Teen: Crush



Haley Howell has had a hopeless crush on her brother’s best friend, Jake Lexington, for as long as she can remember. Too bad to him, she’ll forever be off-limits. But with senior year and acceptance to a college outside their tiny southern town of Culler, South Carolina, comes new confidence. Haley’s ready to get Jake to notice her—whatever it takes.

No one in Culler notices the real Jake anymore—to them, he’s nothing more than the star football player or the kid with the family tragedy. When one mistake lands him in community service, he’s shocked to find his best friend’s little sister there, too, looking cute as hell and threatening all his no-friends-with-benefits rules. But Jake isn’t ready to take a chance, no matter how crafty Haley’s willing to get to prove him otherwise…

The Crush Collision (Southern Charmed, #2)The Crush Collision by Danielle Ellison
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is #2, in the Southern Charmed series. This can be read as a standalone novel. For reader enjoyment, and to avoid spoilers, I recommend reading this series in order.

Haley has been in love with her brother's best friend for years. When they have more in common during the school year - they end up spending time together. Can she keep it a secret from her own BFF who thinks she is in love with Jake?

Jake is finding this the worst year of his life. The only thing he looks forward to right now is spending time with his best friend's little sister. He wants to tell everyone but knows it will cut their time together short. Will he get the guts to tell all?

This series is so good. I love the couples and friendships. This is my favorite trope - no secret there - but I especially love when its done right. I loved the characters and how rich and deep they were. Considering all the touchy subjects touched on in the book this was a terrific way to read about them.

Cover Reveal - The Wedding Deal

 

 

Cover Reveal – THE WEDDING DEAL by Cindi Madsen – 2/14/19

 

 

 

About the Book:

 

The rules are about to change…

 

Former quarterback Lance Quaid just inherited the most losing team in the NFL. He’s got only a few weeks until draft day to turn things around, and after firing more than half his staff, he can’t do it alone. Thankfully, his HR manager is more than capable, if only she’d stop focusing on “due diligence” and stop looking so sexy while she’s yelling at him.

 

Charlotte James has made a life out of following the rules. But nothing could have prepared her for Lance Quaid––he’s a human resources nightmare. The man is brash, has no filter, and, as her new boss, is constantly relying on her to cover his ass. Which is admittedly quite nice.

 

When Lance begs her to join him on a trip down the coast for his brother’s wedding so they can finalize details––on a strictly business basis––she agrees...after they fill out the necessary forms, of course. Away from the office, though, sparks start flying as the team starts coming together. But both of them know anything more than the weekend would be a colossally bad idea––after all, the extra paperwork would be a nightmare.

About Cindi Madsen:

 

Cindi Madsen is a USA Today Bestselling author of contemporary romance and young adult novels. She sits at her computer every chance she gets, plotting revising, and falling in love with her characters. Sometimes it makes her a crazy person. Without it, she’d be even crazier. She has way too many shoes, but can always find a reason to buy a new pretty pair, especially if they’re sparkly, colorful, or super tall. She loves music, dancing, and wishes summer lasted all year long. She lives in Colorado (where summer is most definitely NOT all year long) with her husband and three children.
