UNLIKELY ALLIES 
Author: CC Koen
Genre: Romance
- SYNOPSIS -
What happens when a single mom’s four-year-old daughter falls in love with Mr. Right and she doesn’t?

Maggie Tyson’s rule: no bad boys. Her incarcerated ex-husband broke her of that attraction. Needing to escape his threats and the scrutiny of the people in her hometown, Maggie relocates to New York City. Determined to not make the same mistakes, she has a mile-long list of dos and don’ts. Unfortunately, her daughter, Cecily, doesn’t like to follow them. When Cecily wanders away from her and right into Rick Stone’s office, Maggie knows he’s the exact type she’s been trying to avoid. Can she resist him or will she succumb to his willful charm?

Rick Stone’s rule: bed them don’t wed them. Running a multibillion dollar business doesn’t leave him with much time to do anything else, particularly with an overbearing grandfather breathing down his neck. But when a man works hard, he needs to play even harder. Voted America’s most eligible bachelor, Rick doesn’t have any problems getting women into his bed—except one.
Two auburn beauties stumble into his life.
One will break his heart.
The other—heal it.
Will he love or leave them?

Contains mature content and language. Not recommended for readers under the age of eighteen due to sexual situations and subject matter.

- EXCERPT -
Rick waved to Paul, the evening security guard, and exited the office building. Another midnight departure. It wasn’t that Rick noticed the time anymore; a fifteen-hour work day was common for him. Tonight though, he left with each task on his to-do list accomplished.

Dead tired, he focused on the parking garage across the street. At the walking signal, he jogged to the other side. Two huddled bodies in the bus stop enclosure captured his attention. “What are you doing?” He rushed toward them, stopping at the edge of the bench.

Maggie jolted and glowered at him. “You scared me half to death. I’m waiting for the bus.”

Was she out of her mind? “It’s not safe. You can’t even defend yourself. Not with a sleeping girl in your arms.”

Maggie rested her cheek on top of Cece’s. “I don’t have a choice.”

“You could have caught a cab.”

She tilted her chin up, shot him an agitated brow, and buried her face against Cece’s. “It’s far. It would’ve been too expensive.”

“I’ll drive you. Where do you live?”

“No,” she whispered.

“It wasn’t a choice, Maggie.” He leaned down to scoop Cece into his arms, but Maggie put her hand up, stopping him.

“Don’t.” She stared, unrelenting, and her back scooted into the corner of the booth. Her tight, squared shoulders were on full alert. “How do I know you aren’t some lunatic?”

He wanted to laugh, he really did, but her honest reaction shouldn’t have surprised him. Used to getting his way, he hadn’t thought twice or considered she’d protest the offer. His mouth pulled into a frown as he considered his intimidating stance towering over her. He backed up a few steps, raising his hands. Unwilling to relent, he scrolled through his cell, pressed a few buttons, and when he got an answer, he kept his focus on her. “I need you to vouch for me.” His best friend’s laughter on the other end ticked him off, but he wouldn’t rest until he had his way. “Mention I’m a good guy.” Then he eased closer to Maggie, his hand extended, urging her to accept a concession he wasn’t used to making.

Her eyes flicked from him to the phone and back a few times. He wasn’t sure if the blank look on her face meant she believed him or she’d scream for help. Several tense seconds later, she plucked the cell from his hands, her fingertips clipped to the top and nowhere near close to touching him. “Hello.” Her quiet, reserved whisper revealed hesitancy, but her intense observation demonstrated she wouldn’t surrender easily. “Maggie Tyson.” After a brief pause she answered with a relieved and happy bounce in her voice, “Oh, Matt, hey.” She listened and nodded, her lips curled into a quirky smile and disappeared before he could appreciate it. “Yeah. Uh, huh. Will do, bye.”

After he tucked the phone in his suit pocket, his hand clenched it over and over, waiting for her to say something, anything. Tired of the long silence and her scrutinizing inspection of his eyes, nose, mouth, and grinding jaw, he rocked back and forth on his heels for the second time. “Well?”

A doua parte din trilogia DELIRIUM

Incerc sa alung amintirea cosmarului meu, gandurile la Alex, gandurile la Hana si la fosta mea scoala, sa le alung, sa le alung, cum m-a invatat Raven.

Vechea mea viata nu mai exista. 
Dar si vechea Lena e moarta. 
Am ingropat-o. Am lasat-o dincolo de gard, in spatele unui zid de fum si flacari.

Iubirile miraculoase care aduc speranța și bucurie în viața ta.

Cu totii avem de infruntat adversitati din cand in cand. Cu totii suntem uneori tristi. Cu totii suntem cateodata prea ocupati, prea multumiti de noi insine sau prea apasati de povara propriilor probleme ca sa mai apreciem lucrurile pozitive din vietile noastre. Colectia „Povesti adevarate“iti aduce cazuri reale, intamplari din viata unor oameni obisnuiti, ce ne vorbesc despre curaj si bunatate, despre binecuvantarile si miracolele vietii, amintindu-ne ca nu suntem singuri, ca putem razbate chiar si in cele mai intunecate zile, ca inca exista bunatate in lume.

O casnicie de 50 de ani, intre cei mai neverosimili parteneri. Un neasteptat dar de Craciun, de la sotul pana de curand lipsit de romantism. O relatie pe care divortul o face, paradoxal, mai puternica. Atunci cand isi impartasesc povestile de iubire, femeile gasesc una la cealalta alinare, incurajare si bucurie. Dar, mai ales, isi confirma ca dragostea este cel mai important lucru din viata lor. Pentru ca niciodata o femeie nu este mai frumoasa, mai fermecatoare si mai interesanta decat atunci cand este indragostita.
Kenna is tired of being "normal". The only thing special about her is that she isn't special at all. Which is frustrating in a world of absolutes. Villains, like the one who killed her father, are bad. Heroes, like her mother and best friend, are good. And Kenna, unlike everyone else around her, is completely ordinary— which she hates.

She’s secretly working on an experiment that will land her a place among the Heroes, but when a Villain saves her life during a break-in at her lab, Kenna discovers there’s a whole lot of gray area when it comes to good and evil and who she can trust.. After all…not all strength comes from superpowers.
RO:

Kenna s-a săturat să fie "normală". Singurul lucru special la ea , este ca nu e specială deloc. Acest lucru este frustrant într-o lume absolută. Bandiții, ca cei care i-au ucis tatăl, sunt răi. Eroii, ca mama și cea mai bună prietenă a ei, sunt buni. Și Kenna, spre deosebire de toți ceilalți din jurul ei, e absolut normală, ceea ce ea urăște.

Ea, în secret lucrează la un experiment îi va da un loc printre Eroi, dar când un Bandit îi salvează viața în timpul unei spargeri în laboratorul ei, Kenna descoperă că este și o mare zonă gri când vine vorba de bine și rău, și în cine poate avea încredere. Până la urmă...nu toată puterea vine de la superputeri.

Patimă... Vrajă... Fascinaţie... O relaţie care atinge noi culmi şi abisuri cu fiecare zi.

"Gideon mă numește Îngerașul lui, însă el este cel care reprezintă un miracol pentru viața mea. El este războinicul meu minunat și rănit, atât de hotărât să se lupte cu demonii mei, în vreme ce refuză să și-i înfrunte pe ai lui. Jurămintele pe care le-am schimbat ar fi trebuit să fie legătura care să ne apropie tot mai mult, dar în schimb au deschis răni vechi, au expus dureri și incertitudini adânc îngropate și au atras dușmani aprigi care pândeau din umbră. Am început să simt cum se îndepărtează de mine, și astfel cea mai mare teamă a mea se transformă în realitate; acum dragostea îmi este pusă la încercare în feluri pe care nu sunt sigură că am suficientă putere să le îndur. Când credeam că trăim cele mai luminoase momente ale vieții noastre, întunericul din trecutul lui a început să înconjoare și să amenințe tot ceea ce am construit cu atâta efort. Iar acum, în fața noastră se află o alegere teribil de dificilă: să ne refugiem în siguranța familiară a vieților pe care le avea fiecare înainte sau să luptăm pentru un viitor care brusc a început să pară un vis imposibil și lipsit de speranț."

Descriere:

Sylvia „Vee“ Bell sufera de narcolepsie; cel putin, asa sustin medicii. Boala ii ofera lui Vee un talent uimitor: se poate „strecura“ in pielea celor din jurul sau. Tanara percepe, in acest fel, realitatea prin alti ochi, iar simpla atingere a unui obiect poate declansa un astfel de „episod“. 

Folosindu-si extraordinara abilitate, Vee va incerca sa rezolve o crima, strecurandu-se... in mintea ucigasului. 

Primul volum al seriei este captivant, de la prima pagina.


RECENZIE:

Stiam de aceasta serie/duologie dinainte sa apara la noi si chiar imi doream s-o citesc, pentru ca ideea e originala si suna bine, coperta e frumoasa si parea fix genul meu de carte.

Sincer am citit-o in mai putin de doua ore si am devorat-o fara sa iau vreun pic de pauza, pentru ca n-am putut. E scrisa intr-un asa fel, incat te prinde imediat si chiar vrei sa stii ce urmeaza.

Nu o sa va expun plotul, insa pot sa zic ca romanul asta a fost si mai bun decat credeam eu si chiar m-a dat pe spate. A avut actiune cu duiumul, suspans, si in unele momente mai ca uiti sa respiri,  si niste personaje foarte bine conturate. N-am vazut deloc ce avea sa se intample, iar finalul si cum totul s-a rezolvat iarasi m-a luat prin surprindere. 

Autoarea a reusit, din punctul meu de vedere, sa creeze romanul thriller perfect, pentru ca are actiune multa si bine scrisa, are suspans dozat cum trebuie, are personaje solide si chit ca sunt multe, fiecare este bine individualizat. Exista si o legatura de iubire, insa este foarte, foarte, FOARTE putin scoasa in evidenta si mai mult ea joaca rol de altceva. Daca cititi cartea atunci o sa intelegeti ce vreau sa spun. Plus ca sincer, cand vezi romanul asta cat e de subtire, adica ce putine pagini are, iti imaginezi ca nu e mare lucru, insa gresesti. Pentru ca in acele putine pagini e bagat atat de mult, cat unele carti de sute de pagini nu au.

Scriitura simplista, dar colorata, actiunea, suspansul, intorsaturile de situatie, faptul ca Vee are acea calitate si felul in care o foloseste, intorsatura pe care o iau lucrurile, cine e vinovatul, totul creeaza un roman genial, pe care-l citesti imediat si la final o sa-ti para rau! O sa-ti para rau ca si mie, pentru ca s-a terminat asa repede!

Vi-l recomand cu toate cuvintele pe care le am si sincer cred ca oricine, la orice varsta, indiferent ca esti adolescent sau nu, se poate bucura de el. Lectura placuta si va rog, VA ROG, cititi-l! Nu veti regreta! Mai ales daca aveti gusturi asemanatoare cu ale mele si sunteti nebuni dupa actiune, suspans si rollercoastere.
