Crystal Cove Justine Hoffman Se Ha Labrado Una Vida C Moda En La Peque A Isla De Friday Harbor, En La Costa Noroeste Del Pac Fico Es Propietaria De Un Hotel Y Disfruta De La Existencia Segura Y Predecible Que Siempre Hab A Deseado.Sin Embargo, Un Maleficio Le Impide Encontrar A Su Alma Gemela Cuando Conoce Al Misterioso Jason Black, Desata Accidentalmente Una Tormenta De Deseo Y Peligro Que Amenazar A Quienes M S Quiere Pues Jason Tambi N Guarda Sus Propios Secretos Y Desea M S De Ella De Lo Que El Destino Est Dispuesto A Concederle. DisappointingI haven t been this letdown in a Lisa Kleypas story since I read Where Passion Leads At least the excuse there, it was her debut.Justine Hoffman despairs of never falling in love, especially since she s seen her best friend and cousin, Zo fall in love with Alex Nolan, in book 3 Dream Lake Owner of the bed and breakfast, Justine s been raised as a pagan and is a hereditary witch.Jason Black has produced the most successful fantasy video game series ever Staying at Justine s BB, the handsome, rich game developer has come to Friday Harbor to view land owned by Alex But Jason has another reason to be on the island.Let me just start off with this qualifier I m a huge fan of Lisa Kleypas, both her historicals and contemporaries And I ve read every book she s ever written But this whole Friday Harbor series I ve found less than impressive and the magical realism supernatural elements awkward and not particularly enjoyable But overall books 1 3 have been okay, but definitely not Lisa Kleypas s best in my opinion.Some problems I hadThere wa
Lisa Kleypas has a special place at the top of my list of favourite authors I love, love her historicals but I understand her reasons for wanting to extend herself as an author by writing contemporary novels The Travis series is one of my favourites and I have enjoyed the first three books in the Friday Harbor series So I was looking forward to Justine s story but Crystal Cove was so disappointing What didn t work for me There was so much emphasis on the witchcraft that, at times, it seemed like a paranormal book with romantic elements It didn t even feel like part of the Friday Harbor series Apart from a very brief appearance by Zo and Alex, none of the other characters from the previous books made an appearance I missed those delightful and often funny family moments There was no slow build up of the relationship between Justine and Jason and I never felt that all important chemistry that spark between them It seemed very superficial and about lust at first sight than love at first sight Because love is there not just in the big romantic moments, but in all the little things The way he touches your face, or covers you with a blanket when you re taking a nap, or puts a Post it note on the fridge to remind you about your dentist appointment
The fantasy elements in this series have gotten blatant with each book, from the delicate suggestion of magic in the first to actual witches performing actual spells in this, the fourth I had no major issues with it in the previous books, but I felt that Kleypas bit off than she could chew in this one The fantasy and reality mix just didn t gel I was also disappointed with the hero, who starts off mysterious and intriguing and then quickly morphs into every
I NEED HELP I m done with these series For real I LOVED the first book, so sweet and romantic I loved the hot, sexy scenes and the way the characters connected This Instalove Instalust.Jason was a controlling, self absorbed, super rich ass and I couldn t stand him There was some BDSM elements in the stor
Images of Friday Harbor, Washington. image error 2 1 2 starsThis review is a painful one to write I love this author and will ALWAYS love this author She has penned some of my very favorite books Dreaming of You, Smooth Talking Stranger, Again the Magic, Devil in Winter, and the entire Hathaway series These are books that have become comfort reads They have helped me through difficult personal times, and are books that continue to beckon me for re reads time and time again For this I will always be grateful With all that being said, Crystal Cove was a very difficult book for me to read and the first L.K book that I have no desire to ever read again Please understand that this is just my opinion and my own personal feeling after reading this book I know many others will love this book and be excited with the new avenues that Lisa is exploring.Crystal Cove s plot centers around pagan religion Witchcraft, Wiccan beliefs, spells, and magic ect I am usually able to read and enjoy paranormal books because I am whisked away to another world a fictional world Pagan religion is real, practiced today, and is something that goes against my own personal spiritual beliefs Because of this, I never felt at ease while reading this book.I absolutely loved the character of Jason Black He alone gets all the stars that I
I ll tell you a little secret This is my first Lisa Kleypas book I generally don t read contemporary romance, but the description on this felt a little PNR ish and I have long heard positive things about this author So I figured this was a great opportunity to give her a try Take a look at the blurb Frankly, she had me at Man Without A Soul Unfortunately, when I actually started reading, I was sorely disappointed I think the description of the story is accurate, but let me tell you about some of the things it leaves out.This is not PNR Maybe everyone else already familiar with Lisa Kleypas knew that This is a contemporary romance with paranormal elements That may sound nitpicky, but for lack of a better explanation, the two genres have a very different feel And I m not sure who the audience is supposed to be Readers looking for PNR are going to unsatisfied, and I am not sure that anyone looking for a contemporary will love the magic woven in It s an uncomfortable blend.The hero is a conceited, self absorbed ass He is heavy handed He lies to Justine He makes choices that satisfy his own needs, and she is expected to just get over it and accept it Then she does which goes on to frustrate me even Yeah
Esta historia es bastante diferente al resto de las historias de la serie, y en mi opini n, prescindible.Me gust , pero no logr emocionarme como las anteriores. Check out this review and others at badassbookreviews.comLisa Kleypas has been one of my favorite authors for a long, long time I don t think she walks on air and I ve certainly not loved everything she s written but I can t remember the last time I was so disappointed by one of her books While reading Crystal Cove, I was in disbelief that a writer known for her romantic love stories and great character plot development would write a book with an insta love trope and plot holes the size of tanks I ended up rating it 3 stars barely because the denouement was surprising, even if it was a tad convenient.At the beginning of Crystal Cove, Justine finds out she s been cursed against heartbreak and as such, she can t fall in love As a natural born witch, she decides to break the curse, even though she hasn t had any training and has been warned not to even look at a particular spell in the book she owns Because warning people not do something is a sure fire way to make sure they don t do it Jason shows up in Friday Harbor with the apparent purpose to close a business deal However, he has other nefarious plans in mind, involving Justine She has something he wants and he will stop at nothing to get it.After Justine bre
2 1 2 stars, rounded upJustine Hoffman is successful on the surface of her life she owns an inn on the Pacific Coast, and is healthy and materially comfortable But everyone around her seems to be finding their soulmates, while she s alone, and lonely, longing for her own true love Sure she s had boyfriends, but they never stick around they always get scared and run away Because Justine isn t just a businesswoman She s also a natural born witch, with powers she can t always control This review contains mild spoilers This book was a little weird And a little awkward, bordering on clumsy It set high ambitions for itself, but couldn t quite achieve any of them It wasn t a bad book I did read the whole thing , but neither was it very good, or very satisfactory This was published in 2013, and seems to be a sort of response to Fifty Shades of Grey via a re visioning of the paranormal elements from FSoG s original inspiration, Twilight Justine is mousy and quiet like Bella and Ana, and doesn t have much personality Designated Love Object Jason Black is super rich, aloof and distant, and cold He s also domineering, unable to respect boundaries, and used to getting his way as so many romance novel blurbs state about the hero Oh, and surprise surprise, he
