Synopsis

Before Hannah was a 9-5 working, dinner making, homebody, she was Ashton James: a paparazzi-stalked pop star with more enemies than friends.

These days she has one priority: keeping her sister safe and away from the public eye.

Hannah was doing a great job, until the pesky little brother of an ex-fling discovers where she is, and wants her help launching his career.

Now she has to trust Johnny—whom she betrayed in more ways than one—to protect her whereabouts. Johnny may have an infuriating moral compass and the timing of a storybook hero, but is he immune to the temptation of revenge?

Johnny’s focus has always been his music business, and a bad influence like Hannah is the last thing he needs at work, or around his brother.

But some things are too powerful to be stopped. For someone like Hannah, second chances—in life and in true love—don’t exist. She didn’t think so, at least.

Johnny is about to prove her wrong, and being wrong has never felt so right.

‘Key Change’ is a full-length contemporary romance, can be read as a standalone, and is book #3 in the Common Threads series, Seduction in the City World, Penny Reid Book Universe.

Key Change by Heidi Hutchinson

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


So… I finished this book earlier today and I was in total love with the story.
I wanted more Johnny ( Johnny is literally too good to be true).



But, I wanted more of Hannah!

Hannah is possibly one of my favourite characters ever written because she speaks of her past mistakes (we all have them).
Her regrets (ditto).
And, how she was in the “time before”.
The time when she’d had enough of trusting the wrong people, giving in to her addiction to cope, and being a selfish bitch.
She was a person who was mean, cold, and used whatever she needed and whoever she needed to get what she wanted at (that time).

Now, after literally walking away from her (then) life, she’s trying so hard to be a better person, to make better decisions.
But, she second-guesses her decisions, she lives in self-loathing, and regret.
She can’t see that she deserves to be happy and that she’s a good person.

She’s now living in the “who she’s wants to be” period.
Her honesty is humbling.
Her reactions to situations are true.
Her self-doubt and questioning if she’s doing the right thing are honest and raw.

Of course, as a part of her personal growth and healing period in the present time, she would have to run into possibly “the one that got away” and who she also kinda destroyed at the same time because he was so good and pure.

Seeing Johnny after so many years, and their journey of discovery of “their new relationship” together was a wonderful, and engaging experience.

I will tell you that this book is not erotica, but the authors build up in Johnny and Hannah’s chemistry before they found “their moment” in the library is something that poets have written about.

It was


NIIIIICE!

johnny and Hannah’s journey after their moment is wonderful, terrifying, and absolutely beautiful.

I loved this book, and I highly recommend reading it.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This book.
So Good!

I loved this story, and read it in one sitting yesterday on my day off.
Loved Aurora (Oro, Roro)!
She was smart, brave, kind, compassionate, and I loved watching her grow in this book to be confident, stronger, independent woman.
Rhodes and Amos were just…Amazing!
I loved the whole family dynamic between Sara, Billy, Rhodes, and Amos.

Wonderful story with amazing new characters, and of course, Mariana makes reference to a couple of things/people from previous books.

Read this book!

Review of Kulti by Mariana Zapata

Synopsis

“Trust me, I’ve wanted to punch you in the face a time or five.”

When the man you worshipped as a kid becomes your coach, it’s supposed to be the greatest thing in the world. Keywords: supposed to.

It didn’t take a week for 27-year-old Sal Casillas to wonder what she’d seen in the international soccer icon – why she’d ever had his posters on her wall or ever envisioned marrying him and having super-playing soccer babies.

Sal had long ago gotten over the worst non-break-up in the history of imaginary relationships with a man who hadn’t known she’d existed. So she isn’t prepared for this version of Reiner Kulti who shows up to her team’s season: a quiet, reclusive shadow of the explosive, passionate man he’d once been

5 fantastic stars!

Let me start off by saying that I’ve read this book three times, and each and every time I read it, I’ve enjoyed it more than the previous time I’ve read it.

When I initially read this story a couple of years ago, these there the thoughts that were going through my head.

1) Wow, what an AMAZING story!
2) Why is this author not more well known?
3) Why the hell haven’t I read her work before now?

This story was so well written, and the character development was SO good that you could have sworn that these characters were real.

I loved Sal and Reiner’s characters!

Reiner is a retired soccer legend who has been hired to be the assistant coach for Sal’s women’s professional soccer team.

Sal knows who exactly Reiner is because she’s idolized him since she was a small girl. He was her favourite player. She knows ‘everything’ about his life and career, and he was her inspiration while she was training. She gives him credit for making her one of the best players in the league (possibly the world) because he motivated her to have the discipline to train and stick to a vigorous routine.
… and she’s also had a huge crush on him since she was as a child.

When Reiner finally shows up to coach, he is nothing like the man she’s put on a pedestal.
He’s crude and rude. He has no manners, and instead of sharing his wealth of experience and knowledge, he’s just indifferent with the team… which seems to be worse than anything.

When a situation arises and Sal has to help Reiner, she decides to give this incredibly pompous ass a chance.

Their relationship starts out as a very shaky friendship with lots of trials and tribulations.
It is these trials that they go through together that make this incredible journey from friendship to something more precious, and what makes this story such an amazing read.

What I loved the most about this story was that their relationship slowly built.
It was by far not easy, but then again anything worth fighting for is never easy.
.. and even though there is a 13 year age difference between the two, they are so well matched that the reader doesn’t even notice it until it is mentioned in the story.

This story is not so much about the sport of soccer, but that of two people who have a lot in common. Who find one another, like one another, and start a friendship that is solid and strong, and in the end a beautiful love for one another.

This is probably one of the best stories I’ve read.
I will definitely re-read it.

Kudos Ms Zapata for your amazing story-telling, characters, and writing of this story!
