New Release: Hausfrau by Jill Alexander Essbaum

Hausfrau

 

 

 

 

 

Synopsis:

Anna Benz, an American in her late thirties, lives with her Swiss husband, Bruno—a banker—and their three young children in a postcard-perfect suburb of Zürich. Though she leads a comfortable, well-appointed life, Anna is falling apart inside. Adrift and increasingly unable to connect with the emotionally unavailable Bruno or even with her own thoughts and feelings, Anna tries to rouse herself with new experiences: German language classes, Jungian analysis, and a series of sexual affairs she enters with an ease that surprises even her.

But Anna can’t easily extract herself from these affairs. When she wants to end them, she finds it’s difficult. Tensions escalate, and her lies start to spin out of control. Having crossed a moral threshold, Anna will discover where a woman goes when there is no going back.

Intimate, intense, and written with the precision of a Swiss Army knife, Jill Alexander Essbaum’s debut novel is an unforgettable story of marriage, fidelity, sex, morality, and most especially self. Navigating the lines between lust and love, guilt and shame, excuses and reasons, Anna Benz is an electrifying heroine whose passions and choices readers will debate with recognition and fury. Her story reveals, with honesty and great beauty, how we create ourselves and how we lose ourselves and the sometimes disastrous choices we make to find ourselves.

Blaine Wesley

Chelsey Ford
Liar. That’s what I called him when he walked out of my life. Losing your first love will turn you into someone bitter. Hateful. Angry. But now he’s back, and he’s determined to torture me.

Synopsis: 

I don’t know what makes a great love story. Is it that instant attraction when boy meets girl? The passionate kisses and the fairy-tale ending? Or is it a lifetime of tragedy, paid in advance, for a few stolen moments of pure bliss? The pain and the suffering that, in the end, you can say are worth it for having found the missing piece of your soul?

The answer is: I don’t know. I don’t know what makes a great love story. I only know what makes my love story. I only know that finding Cole when I did, when Emmy and I were running from a nightmare, was the only thing that saved me. That saved us. He was more broken than I was, but somehow we took each other’s shattered pieces and made a whole. If that is what makes a great love story, if that is what makes an epic romance, then mine…ours is the greatest of them all.

Review: The Girl on the Train by Paula Hawkins

The Girl on the Train

 

 

 

 

 

 

Synopsis:

Rachel takes the same commuter train every morning. Every day she rattles down the track, flashes past a stretch of cozy suburban homes, and stops at the signal that allows her to daily watch the same couple breakfasting on their deck. She’s even started to feel like she knows them. “Jess and Jason,” she calls them. Their life—as she sees it—is perfect. Not unlike the life she recently lost.

And then she sees something shocking. It’s only a minute until the train moves on, but it’s enough. Now everything’s changed. Unable to keep it to herself, Rachel offers what she knows to the police, and becomes inextricably entwined in what happens next, as well as in the lives of everyone involved. Has she done more harm than good?

My Review:

Many reviews have named The Girl on the Train the next “Gone Girl” but honestly, I don’t understand why! Besides the fact that both have the word “girl” in it’s title and that they both are in the same genre which is psychological thriller, that couldn’t be farther from the truth. To me that’s almost like saying all psychological thrillers are just like Gone Girl and we all know that’s the furthest thing from the truth! Amy Elliott Dunne in Gone Girl thoroughly plotted out her crime until she couldn’t anymore. The crime that happened in The Girl on the Train happened due to inconvenience and wasn’t planned in the least bit!

The Girl on the Train was a good read (yes, even through it’s not the next “Gone Girl“). I listened to the audible, and I have to say, that in the beginning, I did find it difficult to figure out who was who, since the book was told in many POV’s. I did have to jot down who everyone was at first, so I wouldn’t get confused but after that hurdle, I found it smoother to listen to.

As many may think from the title, that the book all took place on the train that’s simply not true. After reading the first couple of chapters you quickly figure out it’s more like what was seen on the train and by who and can that memory be trusted? Mistrust in this book goes beyond that of one’s tainted memory but to all the characters who all at one point or another do not trust each other.

Like many people, Rachel Watson intently observes life around her. Mainly through the vision of a lonely, angry, and bitter ex-wife, but also through the eyes of an alcoholic. Through the haze of her curiosity which blurs into downright nosiness that actually goes beyond the normalcy of just watching life’s surroundings. She meddles, she pokes her nose where it doesn’t belong, and she has a hard time grasping what’s really happened during the crime she partially witnessed. Sometimes grief and pain cloud peoples’ judgments and they act out in ways you least expect, the author did an excellent job of portraying these characteristics in Rachel.

This book did leave me on the edge of my seat often. Once I thought, I knew what was going to happen the chapter changed and it was on to the next person’s point of view that had nothing to do with the last persons’. When I did figured out who did it, I still found myself intrigued and wondered what was going to happen next! Overall, I found it a good read.

Synopsis:

He’s a sexual dominant. She’s sworn off sex. There’s no way they can make a relationship work—or can they?

After surviving a traumatic event at age fifteen and the ensuing estrangement from her family, Natalie Bryant has worked for years to reinvent herself into the woman she is today—a happy teacher fresh out of college and enjoying her first winter in New York City with her faithful dog, Fluff, by her side. Natalie isn’t expecting her life to change completely during a routine stroll through Greenwich Village on a blustery January day. But when Fluff breaks loose and charges into a park, Natalie gives chase and crashes into her destiny. Only after Fluff bites and draws blood from the man who accidentally knocked Natalie down does she realize Fluff has bitten the biggest movie star in the world.

He has no business being enthralled by the gorgeous, young, innocent teacher…
Natalie captivates Flynn Godfrey from the first moment their eyes meet while she is lying on the ground and he’s fighting off her ferocious little beast of a dog. The only thing Flynn knows for certain is if he lets Natalie get away, he’ll regret it for the rest of his life. After only a short time in her presence, Flynn is prepared to change who he is to be what she needs. He knows he’s in big trouble when she says she won’t sleep with him and he doesn’t care if it means he gets to keep her in his life. But can he turn his back on the lifestyle that has defined him? Can he deny the desires that drive him to give Natalie the introduction to love and romance she so deserves? And most of all, can he keep his truth hidden from her long enough to have forever with her?

Join Flynn and Natalie as their story unfolds in three full-length books released three weeks in a row: VIRTUOUS, VALOROUS and VICTORIOUS. From New York to Los Angeles, from Hollywood to Las Vegas, Flynn and Natalie’s whirlwind love affair has it all—romance, passion, steamy hot sex, relentless paparazzi and a murder that could be their undoing.

If you hate dirty-talking heroes who put it all on the line for the women they love, who leave no desire unfulfilled, who will do anything it takes to protect what’s theirs…If elements of BDSM make you queasy, if smoking hot sex isn’t your thing, if cliffhangers make you rage, if you hate first-person points of view from the heroine AND the hero… this trilogy is NOT for you! You’ve been warned…

 

WOWZA…I can’t wait to give this book a try!
