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.

♪♫My Pick For Book Theme Song♫♪

Wonderwall by Oasis  --Actually the Author picked it, because It's mentioned in the book…sometimes they pick the perfect songs...♫

 

 

 

⇝Ratings Breakdown⇜

 

Plot:  5/5

Will I continue this series?  Possibly…I'm torn…maybe I'll try a different book by her.

 

 

 

My Thoughts⇜ 

 

I would like to thank the Author for writing a story with the perfect blend of sexy stuff, angsty love, humor and some olympic inspired drama.  Everything about this clicked with me.  I loved it.  That's why I'm so bummed, that the second book in the series, has so many reviews that are two stars or less...

 

Narration is excellently done by Amanda Dolan, she has a great voice for this genre of book…and she did an excellent English accent as well (at least from this American girls pov).  Shaun Grindell did the male pov and he was good too, but I think I would of liked a more masculine voice for Freddie.

⇝Sex Factor⇜  Just the right amount of well written sexy scenes…

January Reads
Man on the Run - Carl Weber
The Score - Kiki Swinson
The Mark (The Score Series) - Kiki Swinson
Copycat - Kimberla Lawson Roby
A Note Yet Unsung (A Belmont Mansion Novel) - Tamera Alexander
Luxury and Larceny: Part 1 - Ty Marshall
Breathless - Beverly Jenkins

I read 7 books in January. I'm so proud of myself that I stayed focused and tried to read everyday. There were a couple books that I did have to put down, but I'm happy I did. Leaving books that aren't working for me is something I promised to do in 2017 and obviously with 7 books read it's working. 

 

I read;

 

Breathless by Beverly Jenkins                    4 stars

 

Man on the Run by Carl Weber                   4 stars

 

The Score by Kiki Swanson                         3 stars

 

The Mark by Kiki Swanson                          3 stars

 

Copycat by Kimberly Lawson Roby             3 stars

 

A Note Yet Unsung by Tamera Alexander   3 stars

 

Luxury & Larceny by Ty Marshall                2 stars

 

 

It was a good month and in February I'm expecting to read more and hopefully read more 5 and 4 star reads.

Settling the Score
Settling the Score - Eden Winters Settling the Score - Eden Winters
I love when I can't put a book down once I have started and, with "Settling the Score", it happened. I have been awake till 4 AM last night because I needed to finish it.

This is a beautiful love story between a man who has written 28 books and a guy who never has finished one. The contrast between them seems huge but, as you go along with the story, you realize both are very similar and they complete each other perfectly and, above everything, both are good men who just want to be happy and to be loved.

This is a slow burn MM romance with a southern naïve guy and an educated man who knows betrayal and disappointment first hand. Both main characters are very likable and not perfect at all but, at the same time, I can not say anything bad about them or their behavior, because I loved each one separately and I loved them together.

Is impossible not to feel sorry for Joey since the very beginning. Dumped and outed on national television in front of all his family in a small (and homophobic) southern town. But this is the perfect presentation for him because even in this moment, with all his dreams shattered, he managed to be kind, sweet and honest. Adjectives that characterize him till the end of the book.

I think the thing I loved the most is the inner evolution in Joey. How the shy guy becomes the confident man who wins the cynical writer's heart.

This is a great book. You are gonna smile (a lot). You're gonna feel sympathetic with both characters. Probably you're gonna cry (Oh yeah, I did it a couple of times) and you are gonna enjoy the journey these two started the day they met.
But I have to warn you: If you are expecting a lot of rough sex scenes and dirty talk (things that I absolutely love in a book, don't misunderstand me) this one is not for you. This is a sweet, beautiful story, that leaves you smiling and thinking good people deserves happiness in their lives.

Congratulations Eden Winters! You have a new fan in me!
