The main characters:

Cassi: broken, kind, sad

Sam: wonderfully broken

Addy: frankly, good-natured

Mason: smart, funny, fun

 

 

 

Synopsis:

Sixteen months ago, Cassidy Porter lost the love of her life.

Every day since has been a battle to carry on, but despite what her mother and sister say, she’s making progress—or is she?

When she receives an invitation to attend a banquet in honor of the organ donors and their recipients, she has every reason to guard what remains of her shattered heart.

Maybe this will be the closure she needs to finally mend its pieces.

For the last twenty-eight years, Samuel Copeland has been afraid to live.

Diagnosed with a genetic heart condition, he knows better than anyone that second chances don’t come along often. Since his transplant, he spends his days in the local coffee shop, watching and observing, trying to make sense of all he’s been given.

Grateful doesn’t begin to describe it.

When the opportunity to meet the person who was closest to his selfless donor presents itself—a chance to say thank you for saving him—he takes it.

What’s the worst that can happen?

Brought together by fate—or perhaps, something else entirely—the two form an unexpected bond, one that has them both asking: can two hearts be destined only to beat for each other?

 

 

 

 

My thoughts:

This is a book that takes your breath away. A book that gives you hope that two hearts can meant to beat just for one another.

Cass lost the love of her life. He was an organs donor. And when she gets an invitation to meet with the organ recipients, she is very afraid. What is waiting for her when she meets a person who carries a part of her boyfriend? Who is he or she? What to expect?

She was confused and she did not know what to do. Can she love aain?

Sam waited his entire life. Waiting for what's going to happen. Death? New life?

But when he gets a new chance, he does not know how to proceed. He sits in a coffee shop every day, observing. Analyzing. Waiting. But he still doesn't know what or who is he waiting for.

Until he receives an invitation to a meeting of donors and recipients. Then his heart tells him who was he waiting for.

But when they meet and know each other, sparks skip between them. But, will sparks and understanding be enough to stay together or will Adam's shadow split them? Who loves who?

I'm not sorry that I read that story. It's very emotional and definitely full of hope. I liked the course of the story and, of course, I will still pay attention to this writer. It was my first book from her and definitely left a great impression.

The main characters:

Simon: sad, dominant, passionate, reserved

Willow: fun, direct, emotional

 

 

 

Synopsis:

Willow Taylor lives in a castle with large walls and iron fences. But this is no ordinary castle. It’s called Heartstone Psychiatric hospital and it houses forty other patients. It has nurses with mean faces and techs with permanent frowns.

It has a man, as well. A man who is cold and distant. Whose voice drips with authority. And whose piercing gray eyes hide secrets, and maybe linger on her face a second too long. 

Willow isn’t supposed to look deep into those eyes. She isn’t supposed to try to read his tightly leashed emotions. And neither is she supposed to touch herself at night, imagining his powerful voice and that cold but beautiful face.

No, Willow Taylor shouldn’t be attracted to Simon Blackwood, at all. 

Because she’s a patient and he’s her doctor. Her psychiatrist. 

The medicine man. 

 

 

 

My thoughts:

I really needed some time to somehow form an opinion on this interesting, tense and emotional story. In any case, I think i still will not write down everything that i want to write.

The story in this book puts us in a psychiatric clinic. Young but very hearty and friendly Willow has experienced her crisis, which she is now facing. Lies, half-truths in evading their emotions don't bring to her any good. Especially not with him, Simon.

Willow is aware that she has disappointed many people, both inside and outside the hospital. It is difficult to open up and trust, but when most of her life held her emotions for herself. When the new doctor, Simon, comes in, her walls begin to collapse.

So there were moments when I actually wanted to be there, in the book. To experience all those feelings, passion, search for myself, mystery, friendship, laughter and trust. A wonderful book that gave me something to think about and which also showed me the other side of the walls. Where you can, even if you're broken, you can put your self together. That you can still find the right friends, which would stand by each of them sides in and out of hospital.

Certainly a book worth reading, and also a writer is one of those who would deliver better and better books each time and with each new release.

The main characters:

AJ: unconcerned, conscientious, friendly, working

Evan: persistent, athlete, witty

 

 

 

Synopsis:

Atomic number: 33 
Name of chemical element: Arsenic 
Symbol: As 

Every solution has a poisonous flaw …

even between best friends. 

The agreement: Fall break together. 
The struggle: A road trip from North Carolina to Massachusetts. 
The reason: To find a way back into each other’s lives. 
The issue: AJ’s not ready to let Evan reclaim the parts of her he made his. 
The hindrance: Connecticut. 

 

 

 

My thoughts:

It was hard to wait for this book to release, because I really wanted to know what happened between Evan and AJ. But what can a car ride home bring between them? Can save their friendship? Or will there become something more?

Evan and AJ are friends since childhood, but can they overcome all obstacles from the first book? Can they find the way to each other and become best friends again?

Their drive back home for holidays drives them on the path of truth, too. Where they say everything that is on their mind and talked about what went wrong between them. True emotions will be revealed, but is it too late?

AJ has found new opportunities in the new environment and the new school. She found that she did not make the wrong decision and that she really liked it at this school. Find out that, despite the fact that she still has strong feelings for Evan, she can nevertheless start again, somehow.

The drive home is definitely not easy. AJ is struggling with herself and her emotions. Can she trust Evan again, tell him the truth, or will she be leting everything go and start again.

Evan just wants AJ back. Tell her how he is feeling and to start a new chapter in their life.

What will this ride home bring for them?

A story full of memories, difficult choices, laughter and definitely a little tense.

The main characters:

Ryder: dancer, teacher, broken, angry, hurting, good

Piper: persistent, dancer, determined, fierce, relentless

 

 

 

Synopsis:

I was fourteen when I met him, danced with him, and fell for him. 
I was sixteen when Ryder left me with a forbidden promise. 
Now I’m twenty, and he’s back, but he has a secret. 

I walked out as the boy Piper had loved for far too long. 
Now I’m back as a man who’s broken, angry, and flawed. 
Yet, each time she looks at me, it’s as if I’m perfect.

Can we have a second chance at love?
Or will our next dance be our last?

 

 

 

My thoughts:

A tense and emotional story that talks about a girl who falls in love with a boy. They are brought together by dance, but separate them more than just dance. Ryders secrets are the one that separate them.

She knowns him since her childhood. She was dancing ballet, but when she saw her brother and him dance, she knew that this was what she was looking for. What will make her happy and in what she will enjoy.

Her parents think that she will not come far from doing what she does. She should stick to the rules, but how should she do that when her heart is somewhere else.

Now Ryder is back and she doesn't know what to do. She doesn't want to see him, but they work together, and certainly there is no way to avoid him. Of course, the sparke is still between them even after so many years, and love, love she still feels, for her is overwhelming and she doesn't know what to do.

Ryder tries to establish a friendly relationship with Piper again, hides his emotions and does not know what he actually feels. He knows that she means a lot to him, but if he wants something with her, he must definitely tell her his secret.

In any case, it does not end with one secret, one complication. The book is full of secrets that leave you in anticipation of new discoveries. Definitely an interesting book. I am pleasantly surprised by this author and I certainly recommend it if you are looking for some new, tense and excellent reading.

The main characters:

Eva: sassy, kind, working, mysterious, rebellious, protective

Gleb: dominant, self-confident, protective, hardworking, inexcusable

Yuri: inexpressible, serious

 

 

Synopsis:

I’ve been sold by my own father to a beast.

Gleb Sokolov is the definition of a savage. 
He’s an animal in bed and everywhere else. 
A ruthless Russian Mafia boss, badass personified.

And my father just sold me to him, to pay off a debt.

But there’s something Gleb doesn’t know… we have a son,
and I’ll do anything to keep him from finding out. 

Eva Petrenko
Sassy, secretive, trouble with a capital T.
She drives me damn insane.
Except, when her father offers her to me, I find I can’t resist.
She belongs with me, even if she refuses to believe it.
Eva hates me, but I’ll go to the ends of the earth to protect her.
Problem is, Eva’s father isn’t the only one with debts
and mine are the kind I’ll need to pay with my own blood.

 

 

 

My thoughts:

What can one night with complete stranger brings to you?

A lot of trouble, baby, and the fact that your own family would sold you.

Eva is lost at the party. But in any case, she took more than she expected. Severe sex with a complete stranger, who prepared her to do things she didn't think she liked, at all. And a child he doesn't know about and she hopes he will never know.

Gleb comes from Russia, but he has been living in America since he was very young. He suffered a lot and work hard to be here where he is now. Even though his business is not the cleanest.

In any case, he did not expect Eve to shake his world. After that one night he cann't stop thinking about her, but he doesn't look for her, because he thinks that she is who she told him she is.

But, of course, an interesting, intense and beautiful story awaits them. With the ups and downs and mysteries that are still waiting to come out. But will the secrets extinguish this spark that they have? Will all end up happy or there would be victims and broken hearts in the end?

My first book of this writer and already the title has attracted me, let alone a summary. In any case, this is a great story and definitely the author whose books I want to read. Her writing has definitely attracted my attention and I think you will not regret reading this story.

I like this passion between them, the tension, the pride they have and each of them are protective to the people they love. It's definitely worth reading.

And i'we learned one Russian word that i would not forget that easy.
