Bler Holden - Njegova devojka


Izdavač - LAGUNA

Njegova devojka, ne bilo čija već NJEGOVA.
Za naslov ovakve knjige ovo je i više nego dovoljno i baš ono što treba na korici knjige da stoji.
On i ona njegova. Njegova do srži, do najskrivenijeg kutka duše.
Da li je neko rekao leptirići u stomalu, glavi, oko glave??? Nema ovde leptirića, sve je ovo zmaj do zmaja od miline.
Prelepa ljubavna priča dvoje mladih i verujte na reč ova "new adult" romansa je savršena. Dok se čita osećaš se lepo, kad se završi u glavi smišljaš kako je dalje teklo. Puštaš mašti na volju i sve ono lepo što treba da usledi nakon priče. Proživiš priču čitajući je a razviješ zaključak u glavi onako kako ti duša ište.

Priča o Tesi, devojci sa kompleksima, devojci iz svakodnevnog života koja misli da je ljubav njenog života jedan frajer a ustvari život i srce utkaju drugačiju mrežu koja nju zarobi. Ona se jednostavno prepusti. Neko koga se plašila i od koga je zazirala u život joj donese veru, samopouzdanje, kontrolu nad sobom i to je ono što je sjajno u svemu. Upoznaš i spoznaš sebe i ono što stvarno misliš i osećaš uz osobu koja se i sama pronalazi uz tebe.
Kada si mlad i imaš snove i svoje oblake iz kojih te baci spoznaja realnog i shvatiš da ljudi i nisu toliko sjajni kako misliš. Rasprše se snovi u tili čas i skontaš da "savršenstvo završi sa savršenstvom, čak i kad je to pomenuto savršenstvo pokvareno do srži". Kroz knjigu shvata koliko je zapravo srećna što su se njeni lažni oblaci razbežali i pokazali ko je ko zapravo i da je onaj pravi ustvari neko ko je uvek bio tu a koga je stavila na crnu listu. 

On, Kol, neko ko je "posebno dizajniran" za to da je muči. Savršenstvo svake mlade devojke, mangup kome savršeno stoje rupice na obrazima i koji je čudovište, seksi čudovište doduše.
Otelotvorenje Boga - manekena pojavivši se okrenulo je njen žvot naglavačke. Mi devojke nikad ne priznamo da je to u pozitivnom smeru sve dok ne skontamo da nemamo izlaz iz sve one miline koja proizilazi iz pogleda tog savršenstva. A tada ...tada smo već na kolenima.

Humor koji se proteže kroz svaku njihovu čarku, reč, kroz svaki red u ovoj knjizi je sjajan i mami osmeh do poslednje stranice knjige. Njihovi dijalozi, u početku puni prepucavanja, čupkanja za kikice i štipkanja su savršeni i bude leptiriće čitaoca. Njeno volim ga, mrzim ga, volim ga ali trenutno mrzim ima u knjizi poentu i čitajući knjigu zaronimo u problematiku te mladalačke ljubavi.


"Koliko ti je potrebno da pustiš nekog u svoj život i vidiš pravu sebe?"
Taman pokušavam da rastumačim njegove reči, kad osetim kako mi se par snažnih ruku zavlači ispod kolena i podie me.
"Šta radiš?" Pre nego što mogu da ga zaustavim, uhvati me oko struka i slobodnom rukom mi otkopča pojas.
"Puštam sebe unutra", odlučno kaže dok me drži u vazduhu i gleda u oči.
"Spusti me, kad ti kažem", istovremeno je prekinuo tišinu i kontakt pogledima. Nešto mu zatreperi u očima, neko njemu strano osećanje, ali onda ga prikrije vragolastim smeškom.
"A ja još mislio da ćemo ovaj romantični trenutak završiti vrelim strasnim poljubcem." 
Namigne ali me još ne spušta.
"Ma daj, ne bih dotakla te usne ni da si na samrti i da ti treba veštačko disanje."
"Čuvene poslednje reči, Tesi", smeška se a ja ga munem laktom u bok. " Opusti se Tes. Šalim se. Ali zar bi bilo toliko loše kad bi želela ovo?" U šali pokazuje na svoje telo. Na trenutak se zbunim jer dođavola čovek je zgodan i zna to.
"Želim? Naravno da te želim!" a zatim napravim grimasu na kraju rečenice."

Bockanje, naizgled bezazleno, učnilo je svoje. Ona slatka "mržnja" prerasla je u nesto više i raščistila put za nešto prelepo što je povezalo njih dvoje. Sjajan prikaz te ljubavi i zaljubljenosti u knjizi me je ganjala da knjigu prosto progutam i uživam u nadmetanju dve osobe koje se bore da pobede taj humor univerzuma koji ih je spojio.

"Stvarno, sudbo prevrtljiva? Zar sam ja meta svakog vica koji tamo gore smisle? "

Ljubav ne možete prisiliti, ona se desi, neko je toga svestan čim ga pogled prostreli a nekom treba malo više. Kada se osetiš bespomoćan pored njega, a on nakon tvog "trebaš mi" doleti padaju svi zidovi koje si gradio oko sebe. Tako je i sa Tesom i Kolom. On je pored nje bio bezbrižan, srećan i pomalo lud, ona pored njega, njegova Puslica. Jednostavno ljubav!!! Pogledaš ga i jednostavno ga voliš 😊

Između ove dve korice je savršeno rađanje jedne ljubavi, savršeno priznanje najkomplikovanijih osećaja koje imaju jedno prema drugom. Oni su rekli doviđenja zaljubljenosti, dobrodošla ljubavi i pustili je da ih opije.

I jos nešto da dodam, knjiga je možda malkice razvučena ali je opet želiš još i još, ali i mimo toga hvala nebesima na delove iz "njegovog ugla". Bilo je prelepo čitati sve ono što je on kao mačo men osećao, proživljavao, što je kao opasan frajer osećao i na kraju njoj poklonio.
Sve preporuke za NJEGOVU devojku od mene 😊

Bler Holden - Njegova devojka


Izdavač - LAGUNA
The Bad Boy's Girl (The Bad Boy's Girl #1) by Blair Holden

“Ta nasledna ljubav prema snu objašnjava količinu mržnje koju osetim prema svakom ko me probudi pre nego što stvarno moram da se probudim. Svi koji me dovoljno poznaju, znaju da ne treba da mi remete san. Zlostavljajte me koliko vam je volja, vređajte me koliko god želite, a možete i svirepo da mi oduzmete ljubav mog života, ali jednostavno ne smete da me probudite kad ne želim da budem probuđena.” 

Tes je tinejdžerka sa običnim tinejdžerskim životom. Završava srednju školu i nakon gubitka kilograma ima samo jednu želju - da je njena simpatija Džej konačno primeti onako kako ona to želi.

“Ne želim da se upuštam u nešto sa čim ne mogu da se nosim.”

Ali, stvari uglavnom nisu tako jednostavne u životu, pa ni u ljubavi.
Džej je sada u vezi sa Tesinom nekada najboljom drugaricom koja je sada redovno teroriše, a u grad se vratio i Kol, Džejev brat.
Tesa i Kol imaju komplikovanu prošlost jer je Kol uvek smišljao raznorazne načine da Tesi uništi dane.

“Zagrlim i ja njega i ne znam zašto je, od svih ljudi koji bi sada mogli da me uteše, baš Kol taj pored koga se osećam bolje.”

Nakon povratka u grad, Kol se menja prema njoj, štiti je, podstiče je da bude bolja, snažnija i da pronađe sebe. I tako počinje jedna ljubavna priča.

“To što zapravo uživam u njegovim grubim pokušajima da mi se nabacuje dovoljan je dokaz da nisam pri čistoj svesti.”

Da sam ovu knjigu čitala pre nekoliko godina, verovatno bih je obožavala i hvalila... sad mi je samo simpatična. Likovi me nisu preterano zanimali, knjiga je mogla biti dosta kraća (zbog toga nisam baš veliki fan knjiga sa wattpad-a) i prosto mi je sve nekako bilo mlako.

“Dobar je on momak ali ima i mane. Mane koje ti ne želiš da vidiš.”

Tesa je nesigurna i u dosta momenata ni sama ne zna šta bi htela.
Džej je “nit’ smrdim nit’ mirišem” tip.
A Kol je... pa klasičan zlostavljač iz škole koji maltretira čak i devojku u koju je zaljubljen dok se jednog dana nekim čudom ne promeni. On mi je možda bio i jedini simpatičan nakon te promene.

“Svaki delić mene svestan je njegove blizine, to je to. Nešto što će se ovog trenutka dogoditi, zauvek će mi promeniti život.”

Ali moram priznati da mi se svideo jedan momenat, gde maske padaju koji je zapravo realan... mirnih se plašite, mirni i fini imaju najpokvarenije umove... Buntovnici su glasni, i kad ih jednom razumete, ugledaćete dušu ispod čitave te galame i zbrke misli.

“Dušo, ja jesam đubre, ali nikad te ne bih ostavio.”

Od mene 4 zvezdice jer je priča simpatična, samo mislim da sam prerasla ove obične YA knjige, bez strasti i odraslog ludila.

“Nije važno šta smo jedno drugom postali, najbitnije u našem odnosu jeste to što je u stanju da me izluđuje. I sjajno mu ide.
Ali, priznajem, kad otrgnem ruku da on može da vozi, istog trena mi nedostaje toplina njegove kože.”

“Ti znaš da bih brisao i podove ako je to način da provedem vreme s tobom?”

COVER REVEAL: The Son & His Hope by Pepper Winters


The Son & His Hope
(Spin-off with Jacob Wild (Ren & Della’s son) and can be read with or separately).
Genre: Coming of Age Romance

“Things you should know about me from the very beginning:
I was born to true love, witnessed the destruction it causes, and vowed never to let such agony happen to me. I am not a story-teller like my father. I am not a writer like my mother. I am just a son—their son.
I am happy being alone.
And that is all I ever want to be.”

JACOB
The day he was born, Jacob learned his hardest and longest lesson.
It wasn’t a lesson a boy should learn so young, but from his earliest memories he knew where happiness lives, so does tragedy. Where love exists, so does heartbreak. And where hope resides, so does sorrow.
That lesson carved him from the kid to the teen to the man.
And nothing and no one could change his mind.

HOPE
I first met him when he was fourteen at a movie premiere of all places. A movie based on his parent’s life.
He was stoic, strong, suspicious, and secretive.
I was only ten, but I felt something for him. A strange kind of sorrow that made me want to hug and heal him.
I was the daughter of the actor hired to play his father.
We shared similarities.
I recognised parts of him because they were parts of me.
But no matter how many times we met. No matter how many times I tried.
He stayed true to his vow to never fall.

BLURB:
They say one action doesn’t define you.
I killed a man. Stabbed him in the neck and licked the blood off my lips after I did it.
Still, one action doesn’t define you.
I could have called anyone. My father, the Prez of The Fallen MC, our family lawyer, my best friend, Lila, or my brother, King.
I didn’t.
Instead, I called Lionel Danner, the police officer renowned for taking down the Nightstalkers MC. The man who had been my father’s arch nemesis for decades. The man who hated everything I stood for. A man who had disappeared from my life without explanation three years ago.
I called him.
And maybe one action doesn’t define you, but killing a bad man and calling in the good changed my life and it sure as hell changed his.

COVER REVEAL: Ren & Della: The Ribbon Duet Boxed Set by Pepper Winters


REN & DELLA: The Ribbon Duet Boxed Set
Genre: Coming of Age Romance

From New York Times Bestseller, Pepper Winters, comes her most poignant tale yet.
This edition contains both books: THE BOY & HIS RIBBON and THE GIRL & HER REN.
The complete RIBBON DUET.
“What do you do when you meet your soul mate? No wait…that’s too easy. What do you do when you meet your soul mate and have to spend a lifetime loving him in secret?
I’ll tell you what you do.
You lie.”

REN
Ren was eight when he learned that love doesn’t exist—that the one person who was supposed to adore him only cared how much he was worth.
His mother sold him and for two years, he lived in terror.
But then…he ran.
He thought he’d run on his own. Turned out, he took something of theirs by accident and it became the one thing he never wanted and the only thing he ever needed.

DELLA
I was young when I fell in love with him, when he switched from my world to my everything.
My parents bought him for cheap labour, just like they had with many other kids, and he had the scars to prove it.
At the start, he hated me, and I could understand why.
For years he was my worst enemy, fiercest protector, and dearest friend.
But by the end…he loved me.
The only problem was, he loved me in an entirely different way to the way I loved him.
And slowly, my secret drove us apart.
