Between the Notes
Release Date: 06/16/15
Harper Teen
382 pages

Summary from Goodreads:
When Ivy Emerson’s family loses their house—complete with her beloved piano—the fear of what’s to come seizes her like a bad case of stage fright. Only this isn’t one of her single, terrifying performances. It’s her life.

And it isn’t pretty.

Ivy is forced to move with her family out of their affluent neighborhood to Lakeside, also known as “the wrong side of the tracks.” Hiding the truth from her friends—and the cute new guy in school, who may have secrets of his own—seems like a good idea at first. But when a bad boy next door threatens to ruin everything, Ivy’s carefully crafted lies begin to unravel . . . and there is no way to stop them.

As things get to the breaking point, Ivy turns to her music, some unlikely new friends, and the trusting heart of her disabled little brother. She may be surprised that not everyone is who she thought they were . . . including herself.

Debut author Sharon Huss Roat crafts a charming and timely story of what happens when life as you know it flips completely upside down.

Kadence Sparrow wasn’t born a devil’s child—she was turned into one. Now, she’s hiding from the truth, and running for her life.
For years, Kade’s true nature has lurked behind an illusion, so when her dad gets another job transfer, she knows the drill: no close friends, no boyfriends, and most importantly: don’t expose what she is. Ever. Keeping secrets is easy. Lies are second nature. So is the loneliness—and the fear, but when the Shadows attack, and Kade meets Cole Spires, she could expose everything she’s trying to hide.

Recenzija: Zakon Privlačnosti ~ Julie James

KADA POČNE DJELOVATI ZAKON PRIVLAČNOSTI…

Payton Kendall i J. D. Jameson uspješni su mladi odvjetnici. Payton, feministkinja od glave do pete, naporno radi kako bi se dokazala u svijetu u kojem dominiraju muškarci. J. D. Jameson, sin bogataša, povlašten i drzak, trudi se iz petnih žila ignorirati Payton. Kad se sretnu, savršeno su uljudni jedno prema drugome. I moraju biti. Osam godina oni se drže na pristojnoj udaljenosti i međusobno su tolerantni samo iz jednog razloga: oboje žele postati partneri u tvrtki.

… PRESTAJU VAŽITI SVA PRAVILA.
No sve se mijenja kada zajedno preuzimaju najvažniji slučaj za tvrtku. Počinju se međusobno uvažavati, a iskrice koje frcaju između njih prerastaju u neodoljivu privlačnost. Međutim, njihova se burna veza brzo ugasne kad doznaju da će tvrtka odabrati za partnera samo jednog od njih. Započinje beskompromisan rat u kojem se ne biraju sredstva da se dođe do cilja. Ispod skupocjenih odvjetničkih odijela kulja neutaživa strast…

Recenzija: Najseksi frajer na svijetu ~ Julie James

Hladnokrvna, smirena, pribrana…
Odvjetnicu Taylor Donovan teško da išta može zbuniti. Protivnicima u sudnici ne dopušta da opaze njezinu zabrinutost. U osobnom životu ne dopušta da je ijedan muškarac izbezumi – čak ni nevjerni bivši zaručnik. Stoga, kad joj dodijele zadatak da za novu ulogu u odvjetničkom trileru priprema najzgodnijeg glumca Hollywooda, ona odbija pasti na njegov šarm. Pa makar on bio Jason Andrews.

Samouvjeren, slavan, neodoljiv…
Jason Andrews navikao je da pred njime žene padaju na koljena. Zato ga zainteresira ravnodušnost Taylor Donovan. Ona nije nalik nijednoj ženi koju je ikad upoznao: ne zanima je njegova slava, naizgled je imuna na njegovo udvaranje te šokantno sposobna da mu kaže „ne“. Ona je savršen izazov. A što ga više odbija, on više počinje shvaćati da bi mogla biti ona „prava“.

Recenzija ~ Iznenada jednog ljeta (FBI/US Attorney #6) Julie James

STVARI ĆE SE S VREMENOM UŽARITI …

Odvjetnica za razvode Victoria Slade nagledala se toliko nesretnih brakova da se zaklela da se nikada neće udavati. To ne znači da je protiv neobaveznog vezivanja s nekim – samo ne sa svojim zgodnim novim susjedom, koji je istodobno neodoljivo privlačan i iritantno otresit. Ali nakon što ona preuzme pravni slučaj njegove sestre, bit će, kao i uvijek, odlučna u želji da pobijedi – čak i ako to znači da mora surađivati s Fordom.

.. KAD SE ONA USELI U SUSJEDNI STAN U KOJEMU ĆE PROVESTI LETO.

Istraživački novinar Ford Dixon odlučio je pomoći svojoj sestri da pronađe muškarca koji joj je napravio dijete i potom nestao. Spreman je surađivati s Victorijom, unatoč tome što ga lijepa brineta istodobno nervira i privlači kao nijedna druga žena. Premda je on muškarac koji se ne želi skrasiti, između njih postoji nevjerojatna privlačnost. Ipak, što više vremena provodi s Victorijom, shvaća da je upravo žena koja je jednako skeptična prema ljubavi kao i on možda jedina osoba u koju bi se doista mogao zaljubiti . . .

Suddenly, Cadence is back in New York City, but something’s different about her. The light in her eyes, the music in her laughter, the warmth in her smile—all of those things have entirely vanished.

Review ~ The Heartless City by Andrea Berthot @AndreaBerthot


Henry Jekyll was a brilliant doctor, a passionate idealist who aimed to free mankind of selfishness and vice. He’s also the man who carelessly created a race of monsters.

Once shared secretly among the good doctor's inner circle, the Hyde drug was smuggled into mass-production - but in pill form, it corrupted its users at the genetic level, leaving them liable to transform without warning. A quarter of the population are now clandestine killers – ticking bombs that could detonate at any given moment.

It's 1903, and London has been quarantined for thirteen years.

Son of the city's most prominent physician and cure-seeker, seventeen-year-old Elliot Morrissey has had his own devastating brush with science, downing a potion meant to remove his human weaknesses and strengthen him against the Hydes - and finding instead he's become an empath, leveled by the emotions of a dying city.
