Two boys. One love. Ten summers. 
Are you okay?
The first words Zed says to Caspian, and the first time someone has cared about the answer. On a hot summer’s day, the lives of two boys are changed forever. A rebel and a risk taker, Caspian doesn’t give a damn for the consequences. Studious and obedient, Zed is the good boy who is never good enough.
The two couldn’t be more different, but there’s one thing they share, a need to belong to someone who understands them, someone who cares. Their friendship goes deeper than either can possibly imagine. They’re young, in love, and planning their future when an act of betrayal tears them apart. 
Fate deals its hand. Seasons pass. Zed’s words follow Caspian through pain, fear and into the darkest of places. Friendships can last a lifetime, even when the world conspires to crush them. But this is more than friendship. This is love and they’re not going to let it slip through their fingers. 
The Story of Us is a tale of love and survival, and the triumph of good over evil against the odds.
The Story of Us is a new adult contemporary romance. It deals with family and social issues, violence and cruelty to children but not sexual assault, sexual situations, and has dark elements and suspense. The events and locations are a mixture of real and fictional. The characters are fictional.

In the spring of 1995, Nate Cartwright has lost everything: his parents are dead, his older brother wants nothing to do with him, and he’s been fired from his job as a journalist in Washington DC. With nothing left to lose, he returns to his family’s summer cabin outside the small mountain town of Roseland, Oregon to try and find some sense of direction. 
The cabin should be empty. 
It’s not. 
Inside is a man named Alex. And with him is an extraordinary little girl who calls herself Artemis Darth Vader. 
Artemis, who isn’t exactly as she appears. 
Soon it becomes clear that Nate must make a choice: let himself drown in the memories of his past, or fight for a future he never thought possible. 
Because the girl is special. And forces are descending upon them who want nothing more than to control her.

Some bonds, no matter how strong, were made to be broken.

I love TJ Klune, I think he really does write magic! Gerelateerde afbeelding 

“Wolfsong” was my nr. 1 book for 2016 and I am sure that “Ravensong” will end up being my best read of 2018. It was raw, emotional, heartbreaking and funny. In short, it was wonderful…

Flight paramedic Rhys Foster is hooked on adrenaline. By day it’s blood and guts, by night it’s the thrill of the club. With a different face in his bed most nights, he doesn’t have time to be lonely…right? 
Entertainer Jevon Campbell is a play therapist like no other—dancer, magician, acrobat, he brings it all to his global mission to help children in need laugh again. He’s on a rare home visit when he encounters enigmatic Rhys in a London bar. 
Their connection is instant, but Rhys fast realises Jevon’s easy confidence doesn’t stretch as far as the bedroom. He has no idea how mesmerising he is—how beautiful—and Rhys resolves to show him. 
They grow closer, but time isn’t on their side. Rhys seems unable to articulate how he feels, and with Jevon’s imminent departure from the UK hanging over them, their separate commitments could tear them apart forever. 
As the days slip by, Rhys must learn to believe he’s worth the happiness Jevon is offering.

~Synopsis~

From the author who brought you A Thousand Boy Kisses comes the new emotional novel, A Wish For Us.
A story of music. A story of healing. A story of love conquering all.
Nineteen-year-old Cromwell Dean is the rising star of electronic dance music. Thousands of people adore him. But no one knows him. No one sees the color of his heart.
Until the girl in the purple dress. She sees through the walls he has built to the empty darkness within.
When Cromwell leaves behind the gray skies of England to study music in the South Carolina heat, the last thing he expects is to see her again. And he certainly doesn’t expect that she’ll stay in his head like a song on repeat.
Bonnie Farraday lives for music. She lets every note into her heart, and she doesn’t understand how someone as talented as Cromwell can avoid doing the same. He’s hiding from his past, and she knows it. She tries to stay away from him, but something keeps calling her back.
Bonnie is the burst of color in Cromwell’s darkness. He’s the beat that makes her heart skip.
But when a shadow falls over Bonnie, it’s up to Cromwell to be her light, in the only way he knows how. He must help her find the lost song in her fragile heart. He must keep her strong with a symphony only he can compose.
A symphony of hope.
A symphony of love.
A symphony of them.
—Standalone Mature YA/ New Adult Novel. Suitable for ages 15 and up.—

A wish for me, for you, for us.

I really love this author and I have read many of her books. The “Hades Hangmen” is one of my favorite series. This book is nothing like those books though. You see, one of the reasons I love her writing/books so much is because she doesn’t stick to just one type of genre. You never know what you are gonna get, but so far I have loved them all!!

Mark is done with flings. He is looking for something real, and he knows just where to find it. Years ago, he fell in love with Charlotte Elswood, but after saving her life, he made the difficult choice to stay in a cartel for the sake of his family.
Now, free of the bloodstained work, he’s ready to rekindle what he’s lost.
But in England, he meets someone who is also blond, blue-eyed, and irresistible. Problem is, Griffith Elswood is Charlotte’s brother. Should Mark even consider putting his hands all over an innocent who would push him away if he knew what kind of monster Mark is?
After years of homeschooling, Griffith wants nothing more than to finally spread his wings at university. Secretly, he dreams of meeting a man he can fall madly in love with. A man he would have all the firsts with. But it’s hard to trust anyone after witnessing his sister’s heartbreak.
When Mark moves in next door, Griffith reaches out despite his sister’s warnings. Mark is mysterious, experienced, cocky, and just oh-so-dreamy. Alternating between hot and cold, Mark’s presence sends Griffith into a frenzy of passion like he’s never known before. So hot in fact, it might just burn him if he isn’t careful.

I feel as though I’m being a bit unfaithful to Dom and Seth here because this is definitely one of my favorite books in this series. The Mark in this book was not what I was expecting at all and he completely charmed me. 

Mark is done with casual sex, he wants to settle down and find the one. The only person he’s been in love with is Charlotte Elswood, a girl he met years ago in less than perfect circumstances. He travels to England hoping to reconnect with her, what he wasn’t expecting was a temptation to be put in his way in the form of her brother…

~Synopsis~

Finnegan O’Shea 
The Sons of Munster have been living this life for generations. We have our own protocol, our own traditions, dating back to when two families merged and created our syndicate in Ireland. Now, we have our strongholds in Philly and Chicago, and the wrong man holds the highest position. The day my uncle decided to betray us, he signed his own death warrant, and after a five-year hitch in the can, I’m ready to take everything from him. In order to ensure the demise of his management, I have to get close to him. I need to earn his trust and that of his closest associates. I’ll be the top earner he wants me to be. I’ll be the very image of a conventional family man. 
For that to happen, this Irish bastard has to find himself a wife. Someone sweet and compliant who will stand by my side and make me look like I have too much to lose to screw over the head of the family. 
Emilia Porter 
When it rains, it pours, so I guess it’s been pouring for eighteen years now. Being from an old mining town that’s full of drunk cautionary tales, I spend my days juggling—and failing—school, work, and paying the bills so my dad can drink himself into a stupor. Then this freaking guy rolls into town in his expensive sports car and thinks I should marry him. This isn’t the fifties, and there isn’t a snowball’s chance in hell I’ll marry a well-known mobster. No matter how much money he promises me. No matter how intensely the chemistry sizzles between us. 
He asks for three years of marriage. Then I’d be set for life, independent and free to start fresh on my own. Free to walk away. Who the hell does he think he is?

I was very skeptical about this book because the cover looks too sweet for my kind of books I like to read…But I was so wrong…OMG, I loved everything about this book.

Finnegan or Finn is an Irish mobster. He is sexy as hell, rich and very faithful in his traditions and family. He wants to become the Head, the Boss like he was supposed to, after his grandfather retired, only his uncle had other plans. To gain trust from his uncle, he has to get married. So now he is in search of a wife.

If she could suspect that something wrong was happening to Stephan at the beginning of Season 5, why should not be capable of detecting Damon is somewhere around and could be rescued? Description from delenabacktoeachother.blogspot.com. I searched for this on bing.com/images

This is the last book in the “Destiny F@@k Yeah! trilogy” and it’s a bit bitter-sweet for me. I know T.J. might do us all a great, great pleasure, and write Justin’s story, but nothing is set in stone, so I still feel a tad bit sad…Goodbyes are never easy…

https://www.google.com/search?biw=1366

Now, just like with the previous books, I am going to keep my review pretty vague and spoiler-free, because I know that’s how T.J. likes it, and I aim to please only him. 😛
