Recension - The Best Goodbye av Abbi Glines

Del 12. The look on Rose’s face had screamed that she was hiding something. Hell, she’d practically run away from me. There was something to that. I knew there was...

After ten years in the employ of a mysterious crime boss, River “Captain” Kipling is ready to leave his sordid past—and his cover occupation as an upscale restaurateur—behind him. The only thing standing in the way of his “retirement” is his commitment to launch a new restaurant in the resort town of Rosemary Beach. With his sister, Blaire, nearby, Captain can delay his dream of running a humble bar on the waterfront, but the unwanted attentions of his head server, Elle, have him itching to get out.
 
Until he notices Rose Henderson, the new server at the restaurant. All he knows about the pretty redhead with the cute glasses is that she’s a hardworking single mom from Oklahoma. But there’s something overly familiar about her laugh...something strange about the way she looks at Captain...
 
Omdöme: Well, hej hej! En ny recension. Jag gled in på Goodreads och hittade den här boken i en serie där jag läst de första böckerna. Lättläst. Enkel. Romantisk. Och snabbläst. Det är inte så mycket oförutsedda delar i den här boken. Den är vad den säger att den är - New Adult. Romantisk med lite smådrama. Ett lyckligt slut med lite sockertoppar och glitter på all romantik. En bok som snabbt går att bläddra igenom.  
 
Jag skriver mest en recension på den här boken för att jag saknat det så mycket. Saknat att skriva och skriva om böcker! Vilken lycka det är och så avkopplande. Ibland gör det nästan också att man uppmärksammar saker i böcker medans man läser, på grund av att man sedan ska sitta och kritisera boken. Men nog om denna bok. Nu ska ni få lite andra recensioner, på bättre böcker! 

Fallen Too Far

av Abbi Glines
 
Part 1 of 2. To want what you’re not supposed to have... She is only nineteen. She is his new stepfather’s daughter. She is still naïve and innocent due to spending the last three years taking care of her sick mother. But for twenty-four year old Rush Finlay, she is the only thing that has ever been off limits. His famous father’s guilt money, his mother’s desperation to win his love, and his charm are the reasons he has never been told no.
 
Blaire Wynn left her small farmhouse in Alabama, after her mother passed away, to move in with her father and his new wife in their sprawling beach house along the Florida gulf coast. She isn’t prepared for the lifestyle change and she knows she’ll never fit into this world. Then there is her sexy stepbrother who her father leaves her with for the summer while he runs off to Paris with his wife. Rush is as spoiled as he is gorgeous. He is also getting under her skin. She knows he is anything but good for her and that he’ll never be faithful to anyone. He is jaded and has secrets Blaire knows she may never uncover but even knowing all of that…
 
Jag läste den här boken inatt, och trors att jag har många andra bra böcker att recensera som jag har läst, så måste jag tipsa om den här! Jag gillade inte direkt beskrivningen av boken. Den får den att låta ytlig och gulligullgullig, men så var den inte. Absolut inte. Den här är nog en av mina favoriter i år, inom genren New Adult i alla fall. 
 
Boken var bra, för man kom direkt in i handlingen. Jag hatar böcker som drar ut på inledningen och man vet vad som kommer att hända, men författaren drar ut på det till halva boken. Jag måste ändå säga att jag blev väldigt chokad när jag fick reda på den stora hemligheten. Jag vet inte vad jag hade förväntat mig, men INTE det. Jag kan ju också säga att man kanske ska vänta med att läsa den här boken tills tvåan kommer ut. Den här boken slutar på ett sätt som gör att man vill sträckläsa nästa bok också...
 
Det är väldigt spännande att följa hur olika Blaires och Rushs liv är. Hon går runt med en pistol i bilen och han går runt med kondomer, typ. Bokens egentliga syfte är inte så starkt och hjärtskärande, det handlar om kärlek och hur den inte övervinner allt. Ännu. Men genom Abbi Glines otroliga författarteknik och underbara beskrivningar, så kan man inte bli annat än förälskad i boken. Det var genom Goodreads (som vanligt) som jag hittade boken. Många av mina vänner tipsade om boken och jag såg väldigt många som hade gett den högsta betyg och hyllat den. Så i gårkväll när jag ville läsa något nytt (trots att jag just nu läser ca 5 böcker...) så blev jag väldigt sugen på denna bok. 
 
Jag har tidigare recenserat Abbi Glines bok Breathe och älskade också den! Annars rekommenderar jag också Losing it, Beautiful Disaster, Easy och The Sea of Tranquility

Breathe

av Abbi Glines
 
Sadie White's summer job isn't going to be on the beach life-guarding or working at rental booths like most kids her age. With her single mother's increasing pregnancy and refusal to work, Sadie has to take over her mother's job as a domestic servant for one of the wealthy summer families on a nearby island. When the family arrives at their summer getaway, Sadie is surprised to learn that the owner of the house is Jax Stone, one of the hottest teen rockers in the world. If Sadie hadn't spent her life raising her mother and taking care of the house she might have been normal enough to be excited about working for a rock star. - Goodreads
 
Jag läste ut den här boken för ett par veckor sedan och har tänkt på om den har påverkat mig. Tyvärr måste jag säga nej. Den är jättebra och välskriven, men jag saknar något som får mig att tänka efteråt. Den här boken ingår också i en serie (Sea Breeze, #1), men de andra böckerna fokuserar alla på olika karaktärer med olika liv. 
 
Själva storylinen var inte heller så unik. Boken är väldigt förutspående, men det är kanske det som är charmen med den. Just när jag läste boken kunde jag inte lägga ner den, så det måste vara något som är bra med den. Men annars alltså, nej, jag gillar den inte speciellt mycket, fast ändå har den något som gör att jag vill läsa den. Som ni märker är jag väldigt splittrad. Jag trodde att jag gillade den, men sen tänkte jag efter och det är egentligen inget jag gillar med den. Ingenting. 
 
Jag önskar att det var en annan titel på boken, eller att titeln inte associeras till en viss del av boken. Har ni läst den vet ni vad jag pratar om. Här har ni det: 
 
He stole my breathe away the moment we first spoke. He's my air.” - Sadie White
 
Det är lite klichéigt, och krystat.. Jag har inte mycket mer att säga. Vill ni ha något mer underhållande men romantiskt kan ni läsa några av dessa eller dessa böcker!
