The Wedding Project - Ehe auf den ersten Blick - Johanna Danninger,Greta Milán

Claire macht  bei der Reality Show "The Wedding Project" mit. Vor laufender Kamera wird sie einen völlig Fremden heiraten und das Leben mit ihm bestreiten. Dem Gewinnerpärchen winkt ein fetter Gewinn und nur deswegen macht Clarie dabei mit. Ihr Ehemann John macht wegen einer Wette mit. Beide wollen die Show gewinnen. Obwohl sie sich nicht ausstehen können, geben sie ihr bestes vor der Kamera das perfekte Paar zu mimen. Doch unter all der Schauspielerei kommen sich die beiden langsam näher.

Das Cover ist so toll. Die Farben passen hervorragend zusammen und sie fallen auf. In einem Buchladen würde ich nach dem Buch greifen und es mir genauer angucken.

Obwohl Clarie noch jung ist, hat sie einiges schon hinter sich. Am Anfang fand ich sie ein wenig anstrengend, aber im Laufe des Buches lernt man die wahre Clarie kennen und lieben. genauso geht es einem bei ihrem Mann John. Auch er ist am Anfang sehr oberflächlich beschrieben und ich mochte ihn nicht. Bis er dann seine Geschichte erzählte und sich so liebenswert macht.

Die Idee mit der Ehe auf den ersten Blick ist zwar nicht neu, aber drüber etwas gelesen habe ich persönlich noch nie. Die Autoren schaffen es das Experiment, Ehe ohne sich zu kennen, realistisch beschrieben. Sie beschreiben die guten wie die schlechten Seiten.

Mir gefällt das Buch sehr. 

Obwohl ich nichts an diesem Buch auszusetzen habe, gebe ich ihm nur 4 von 5 Punkten, denn dieses Buch bleibt nicht im Gedächtnis und gerade das mag ich an Büchern so gerne.

 

Ich habe das Buch von NetGalley bereitgestellt bekommen und bedanke mich herzlich dafür.

Beautiful Tempest - Johanna Lindsey

I had some trepidation from the start - the H had already kidnapped the h once. So that, coupled with the h's behavior (at times, v. TSTL intermingled with being decidedly improper) affected my enjoyment. Granted, the author's heroines often do seem to not fit the mold so to speak. They never seem to suffer the consequences. Jack, regardless of whether anything happened the first time, by society's standards, is already ruined. Yet she's hitting balls and fighting off suitors, which doesn't really make sense.

 

And then there's the H who has the balls to go up to her and ask her to dance while she's standing next to her father, but refuses to try to talk to him. I'd guess he's a bit on the stupid side too seeing as how he knows exactly who her father is - and was - yet never tried to get word to him. Instead, the dumbass tried to capture him, and failing that, went after Jack - again.

 

Jack, having recognized the handwriting of his notes, goes after him with a small army. Instead of, you know, telling someone like say, her uncle and letting him and whatever passes for law enforcement at the time handle things.

 

That everything seemingly worked out in the end... the last third of the book isn't bad really. It's just that the whole overprotective father who'll never accept anyone sniffing around his daughter theme is a bit much.

That Perfect Someone - Johanna Lindsey

I think...having the H/h meet as children, and exposing their non-relationship backfired in this one. I saw the H as an abusive bully in the making, and since he apparently didn't leave home until he was nearly an adult, and since when he shared his prior experiences of the h with his friends, he left out his part, I have a hard time accepting that he really is changed. It doesn't help that once he figures out who the h is, he drops his charming persona and starts verbally abusing her again. His friends never saw them together until after she'd helped them rescue him so didn't see what he was doing.

 

The h...yes; she was a spoiled brat in a way, but I never got the feeling she was an overbearing witch. More like that when confronted with unpleasantness, she reacted violently. Still, she was just 5 when he first verbally assaulted her (he was 10), and for the next what - 6 years or so? Got to listen to him making unpleasant remarks to her, then when she reacted badly, doing some really awful things. Like, you know, locking her in the attic and leaving her all day (that her parents didn't notice her missing and freak out is surprising).

 

So I have a hard time believing the relationship, because I have a hard time believing he's truly changed.

 

I also raised an eyebrow about the h's circumstance. She's 21, and her father has mostly been in a stupor for 5 years. He's in trade, and she's been running the company...for 5 years. Since she was what - 16? Really? And how did she manage to escape the H's dad assuming guardianship over her? Is her cousin her only relative? Things there don't really add up.

Jo was born in Colchester, Essex, in 1974 and since an early age has always been accused of having a wild imagination. This didnt stop her from studying for an honours degree in Cell and Molecular Biology, training as a science teacher, then go on to train as a Biomedical Scientist. She eventually took a post in Clinical Chemistry at Jersey General Hospital in the Channel Islands.

Whilst holding down a full time job, and working 28 hour emergency on call shifts, she has managed to find the time to share that wild imagination with the world by writing online fan fiction stories about the CW series Supernatural.

She enjoyed it so much that, with a lot of encouragement from her husband, she decided to write her own stories. Not an easy task for somone dogged by anxiety and depression, and since her diagnosis in 2013 she has also been battling with Ulcerative Colitis.

In spite of her struggles, Tales from the Forest, a series of short stories set in a magical realm, began to take physical form on her laptop screen, and her black labrador Nelson is a valiant hero in some of the stories. As an avid animal lover, she has vowed that all proceeds from the sale of this book series will help to set up a forever home sanctuary for stray, elderly and abandoned dogs.

Although still working full time at the hospital, she has turned her thoughts to the future, and now holds a Diploma in Dog Training from the Centre of Excellence, and is currently studying towards a Diploma in Canine Communication in order to prepare for a life of working with rescue dogs.
