J'ai adoré ce thriller !
Un rythme palpitant, des personnages bien accrochés et qui ne se lamentent pas sur leur sort, une belle plume et des scènes de course poursuites bien imaginées : personnellement je suis fan !
Au-delà d'un nouveau côté du hacking dévoilé, Michelle Gagnon nous parle d'une vérité bien triste que peu de gens croient et qui pourtant persiste : les jeunes à la rue dont personne ne se soucie et qui sont souvent utilisés à des fins malhonnêtes... Et cela existe partout dans le monde !
Je trouve que le choix des personnages est vraiment bien pensé : deux jeunes de deux horizons totalement différents qui pourtant se retrouvent dans la même galère et à devoir se débrouiller dans un monde où la corruption est présente à chaque coin de rue.
Ils sont d'ailleurs très attachants et leur histoires également... Ce sera un plaisir pour moi de les retrouver bientôt !
Une romance comme on les aime, qui se lit vite avec des personnages sympas. L'écriture est fluide, il y a peu de rebondissement comme on pouvait s'y attendre mais ce n'est pas dérangeant. J'ai beaucoup aimé l'univers rock avec la tournée. Un livre recommandé si vous avez envie d'une romance mignonne sans prise de tête.
Un bon tome.
Le couple Quinn/Elise m'a bien fait rire avec ces petites vengeances personnelles.
Une lecture simple mais plaisante.
Le seul défaut et que comme dans le 1er tome, le passé difficile des personnages n'est pas assez exploité.
C'est très court !
Les personnages ne sont donc vraiment pas développés, d'ailleurs le personnage principal change de personnalité en 3 pages, c'est pour dire !
Je suis pas vraiment fan de comment l'auteure a traité la "romance" entre eux parce-que clairement, à la fin ils adoptent un comportement de couple épanoui, alors qu'ils ne se connaissent que depuis 2 jours et que la seule chose qu'ils ont partagé, c'est du sexe !
Ah si ! Il y a une scène de combat sortie de nulle part [spoiler] au court de laquelle on se demande s'ils sont vraiment les alphas les plus puissants (ils n'expriment pas du tout leurs intérêts pour le bien commun on dirait des gens sans responsabilités) alors qu'ils galèrent pour tuer deux alphas beaucoup moins puissants qu'eux[/spoiler]
Une dernière chose, ici, les métamorphes sont comme atténués sous la forme d'un gros nounours : ils acceptent les provocations, se laissent faire facilement....
Bref, une bonne idée bâclée !
Ugh. Gabriella Wickham thought turning thirty was bad enough, but now she’s been invited (ordered) to attend this year’s Gathering (werewolf speed dating). Having a Mark on her arm means that she’s one of the few human women destined to mate with not one, but two Alpha werewolves. Thank goodness werewolves don’t come in “ugly.” After her sister Scarlet mates the Ruling Alphas, things really start to get interesting. Gabby runs into not one, but two hotter than hot werewolves who make her tingle in all the right places. Yum. Of course, “yum” comes with baggage of both the mental and female kind. Lovely. Luckily it’s nothing a few punches and a good talking to can’t cure. Maybe…-ish.
Berke Davis and Jack Wright know that lush, curvaceous Gabriella is their mate. Who cares that they’re currently not part of an Alpha pair? Details, details. Burke has been half bound to his best friend Jack since they were four, but the past keeps them from solidifying their pairing and taking up the mantle of Alpha. Berke understands his friend’s feelings, but Jack is about to get a lesson on living and loving. Berke just hopes the lessons are learned before they both lose Gabriella. Especially when she is Challenged by a rival to first blood…a Challenge that could end in very permanent, and deadly, consequences…for Gabriella.
Thirty and single? Well, getcha ass to the Gathering!
Whitney Wickham is at the darned annual werewolf Gathering all right. Only there's one problem: she doesn't belong there. Her sisters carry the Mark indicating they'll mate an Alpha Pair of wolves, while Whitney does not have that lovely, swirling scar. She's been hauled half way around the world to be stared at, and not-so-covertly sniffed, for no reason. Unfortunately the gorgeous, drool worthy, magic-mojo-wielding Wardens don't know why she's been summoned to the Gathering any more than she does. Which sucks. But at least they're hot.
Emmett Greene and Levy Walters are Wardens--keepers of the law and embodiment of the magic of the werewolves. They can never mate, never marry, and never form a lasting romantic relationship. It's a hard and fast law that keeps their powers pure of outside influence.
Rules are going to be broken.
One look at Whitney, one hint of her scent, and they realize their immovable laws might have to jiggle. She's got luscious curves, a wicked smile, and a mouth that would make a thousand men weep. No matter the rules, their inner wolves will claim her. The only things standing in their way are the Elder Wardens who will do anything... anything... to keep Emmett and Levy from discovering the truth: the laws are wrong. And being with Whitney Wickham is so very, very right.
Thirty and single? Well, getcha ass to the Gathering! Wait… what?
Rebecca Twynham hates nature, loves a juicy steak, is not Marked, and thinks wolves come in one form: on four feet and with fur. So when she’s hauled to the annual werewolf Gathering by this scary as hell magical vortex, she’s pretty surprised to find out werewolves are real. With that new knowledge, she finds she still hates nature, she’d love a juicy steak, and maybe—she might be—Marked. Well, she doesn’t see a Mark, but she also has heavy scarring from a childhood accident—or was it intentional? Plus, she really wants to climb the gorgeous Alpha Pair, Aidan and Carson, like a tree. Luckily the two hot werewolves wanna sink their roots into her flower and… The nature analogies have gone too far.
Aidan and Carson have been a strong Alpha Pair for fourteen years. They’re tied together by their bond, and ache to claim a woman as their own. But while Carson has always been the GQ ladies’ man, Aidan has been the afterthought—the heavily scarred and frightening werewolf who’s caused more than one woman to faint.
When they find Rebecca hiding in the Bad Doggie ballroom, they rejoice that they’ve finally found the one for them. Except with curvaceous, delicious Rebecca, their roles are reversed. Instead of rushing into the arms of sleek and sexy Carson, Rebecca clings to Aidan. Carson should rejoice in her acceptance of Aidan, but jealousy rears its ugly head, destroying their triad before it has a moment to form.
Then things go from jealousy-driven bad to worse when the five families decide there won’t be any more Wickhams joining the wolfy family trees.
Oh, right, she forgot that part. Apparently her Wickham cousins are kind of a big deal in werewolf land. Big.
Thirty and single? Well, getcha ass to the Gathering! Wait… what?
Lorelei is a hint over thirty—nobody better ask how much of a hint—and isn’t sure why the hell she’s been magically hauled to the land of werewolves. But she has. Which sucks. At least they stole her while she was at the gun range. Go Pink Pistol of Doom! So, they stole her, she stole a cell phone in return, and all is crazy in her new werewolf-laced world. It gets even crazier when, 1—she discovers her sisters have been kidnapped, too, and 2—werewolves are sexy as all get out. Lorelei is determined to come to her sisters’ rescue and well, see what Dylan and Zeke have to offer.
Dylan and Zeke can’t believe they’ve found their mate. Even though word was passed around that Wardens can have mates, they never thought they’d find theirs. And yet, here she is. Lorelei—gorgeous, lush, and curved in all the right places—calls to their magic and heats up their wolves. They want to lick her from head to toe… together. And they will, once they get that little gun out of her hands. Hell, maybe she could keep it. She is sexy even when she threatens their lives.
They found her and now they’re gonna mate her… as soon as they take care of the powerful five families threatening to take Lorelei from them. Blood may be involved. Sucks to be those guys.
Thirty and single? Well, getcha butt to the Gathering! Wait… what?
Paisley Twynham is over the whole werewolf thing. It’d been a shock to be magically kidnapped and plopped in the middle of a werewolf gathering. Then she got kidnapped a second time, had the crap beat out of her, escaped, and then met two men who are supposed to be her mates. Yup, all kinds of “over” the Gathering. Her only salvations are her sisters and… the two men she can’t help but drool over. Tall, muscular, sexy as hell, and for some reason, they want her fluffy ass. Maybe she doesn’t hate werewolves as much as she thought…
Chance and Hawkins don’t quite have a solid Warden bond. Hawkins is holding back while Chance is slowly reaching the end of his patience after ten years of partnership. The only woman who might save them is Paisley. Seductive, curvaceous, vivacious Paisley Twynham. She’s their Warden Born mate and Chance refuses to let Hawkins’ past stand in the way of their future.
But something else hides in their path that threatens to end their mating before it begins. Or rather, someone.
