Review- Clarity by Lorreta Lost

Title: Clarity (Clarity #1)
Author: Loretta Lost



My review:
Helen just wants to have a normal life, even though she has a disease that caused her blindness. Despite everything, she keeps going on, being the strong tough girl she's always been. But the death of her mother puts a lot of pressure on her, so she breaks.
 Lying in the dark, crying and despairing while trying to find her psychology class, Helen makes the mistake of her life, mistake that oblige her into dropping off college and running away.


Three years later, Helen, now Winter Rose, one of the most appreciated blind author, gets a visit from two doctors. Liam and Owen come to convince Helen, or to say Winter, to accept a new drug that would make her see. But Helen made sure no one would bother her again, that being the reason she moved in the middle of nowhere, surrounded by woods and quiet, living all alone. Helen kicks the doctors out, but Liam cames back, because he can't give up on the blind author he is a fan of. Helen is not naive, she is tough, stubborn, smart and independent, but listening to the young doctor, she starts wondering what it might be to be able to look in the mirror, to see the sunset, the moon, the sky.

Helen accepts the offer on one condition. The doctors can run tests on her, only if they take her to New York, to attend her sisters's wedding first. So they do, and being in her home, feels odd, yet good, the big imposant house brings Helen back tons of memories, and her father's welcome is really touching. But it takes just a few hours before the storm beggins, before the past comes back and messes everything up. It's happening. That bad feeling Helen had had finally reaches out and turns from a nightmare into a living hell.

For the first time, Helen sees. She sees the colour of her anger, the madness that installs in her mind. For the first time, Helen loses it.


My opinion:

I actually liked it. It's an interesting, though quite short story about a blind girl and her struggle to deal with well, everything. It is an easy reading, the descriptions are nicely done, but I would've wanted more. More words from Helen, from whose point of view the story is told. More words, as in more feelings, more sensations, more of what every blind person has to deal with. It's sad at the beggining, and I thought I chose the wrong book to lighten up my mood, but it gets really funny afterwards, untill the final point, when I wanted to smash something! Dear lord! That author knows how to drive her reader insane.


I recommend  this book because it's an easy read, it's short and the story runs smoothly, that you realise you have come to the final and can't believe your eyes. I think you will enjoy it.

I only posted black and white pictures because I thought it would make sens, due to the main character's disability.

Blurb

Marry me.  Two words Kalli Montgomery never expected to say out loud to Xavier Cruz, even though she's been in love with the sexy, single father for as long as she can remember. Unfortunately, she hasn't just been friend-zoned for the past ten years. No, even worse, he's treated her like a little sister, no matter how hard she tried to prove she could be so much more. When she agrees to spend the summer as the caregiver for his daughter, Lily, she knows it's her last chance to finally make him take notice.  As unexpected circumstances threaten to disrupt his home life, Xavier's desperate to keep his family together. He'll do whatever it takes, even if it means marrying a woman he doesn't love. For Xavier and Lily, Kalli will do just about anything, even at the risk of getting her heart broken in the process.  Little does she know, sometimes love isn't quite as unrequited as one may think. Xavier sees her-he always has. And the vow he made all those years ago never to go there with his best friend's little sister is wavering, and it's wavering fast. When they come up with a plan that leads to wedding bells, it's a no brainer.  This marriage of convenience has one rule: absolutely no falling in love.  Easier said than done. Throw together a girl who believes rules are meant to be broken, and a man whose whole career revolves around following orders and you get a recipe for disaster. What could possibly go wrong?

Excerpt

Shooting a glare at him, I throw my hands up in exasperation. “Are you telling me that this whole anticipation thing is one-sided? Is it that easy for you to resist? I really need to step up my game.” Xavier’s eyes fall to my lips for a quick moment before he looks back up at me. I see the desire in his expression, and without him even saying a word, I know he wants this, too. So why is he making me wait? “You have no idea how much I want to kiss you right now. How many times I’ve thought of doing just that. Every time you were curled up against me on the couch, I wanted to kiss you. Every morning when you showed up, I wanted to kiss you. Every time you said goodnight to Lily and then slipped out my door? I wanted to kiss you before you left. It’s not a new development. The first time I ever saw you, Kalli, I wanted to kiss you. And I’ve wanted to ever since.” His admission floors me. He’s told me before that he “saw” me, but I had no clue it was from the very beginning. I’m not really sure how to process it. In fact, he beats me to the punch. “So now you know. This will be just as hard for me, but it will be so damn worth it. Because when you’ve wanted something for as long as I’ve wanted you? It’ll be the best feeling in the world when I finally get it.” “Our first kiss will be that epic?” “A first kiss to rival them all,” he quips, grinning at me. He holds his arms out wide. “Now, we’ll start with a hug and work our way up.” “I feel like I’m sixteen again,” I tell him as I wrap my arms around his waist. His hands come down to my back and he gives me a big squeeze, my head pressing against his firm chest. I love this feeling of being in his arms, him holding me close. There’s nowhere on the planet I’d rather be than right here with him. As much as I want him, I know he’s right. I don’t care when it comes. Because when it does, our first kiss will be unforgettable. His chest rumbles as he chuckles. He squeezes me tight one last time before letting me go. “And it’s only just the beginning,” he tells me. “Have a good night, crazy girl.” EXPLOSIVE - series

Covers from all over the world

Deoarece această carte m-a marcat destul de mult, m-am decis să vă prezint în cadrul acestei rubrici coperta cărții Slam, de celebra autoare Coleen Hoover. După cum știți, editura Epica a publicat atât primul volum al autoarei, Fără speranță, cât și Slam, din dragoste pentru Layken. Este o carte pe care apropo, o recomand tuturor iubitorilor de romane de dragoste și tuturor celor atrași de poezie și nu numai.  O recomand tuturor, punct.

După cum bine știți, coperta aleasă de către editura Epica (de fapt, de fani, în urma voturilor de pe pagină) este una foarte frumoasă, inspirațională și care face legătura cu o anumită parte din carte.
 Coperta americană sub care a apărut inițial cartea, reprezintă o scenă și este foarte emoționant, întrucât știm cu toții ce semnificație are aceasta. 
Dacă până acum am avut doar cuvinte de laudă, nu pot spune același lucru și despre alegerea editurii nemțești. Coperta nu simbolizează absolut nimic, din punctul meu de vedere, e doar o pată de culoare roz, pe un fundal alb.

În Marea Britanie au optat pentru o ediție destul de interesantă, simplă, dar totuși semnificativă (deși nu știu exact ce semnifică acea cheie, forma ei este un referent la ideea de iubire). 




Coperta italiană pare o reclamă la un produs de Valentine's Day. E simpatică, dar nu pe gustul meu.
Coperta din Indonezia, deși nu are cea mai bună cromatică, exprimă ideea de hârtie, de scris și poezie, lucru de apreciat.

Coperta cehă îmi place destul de mult, însumează emoții de care avem parte în poveste, face referire la personjul principal, Lake, iar Will este blurat. Nu știu, are ceva care mă atrage :)

Coperta turcească seamănă puțin cu cea din Cehia, dar parcă nu e atât de drăguță:
De obicei, editurile rusești, fără nicio idee preconcepută, au coperte urâțele. Fără supărare. Însă aceasta mi se pare destul de simpatică:

Îmi place că sunt multe ediții ale acestei cărți cu un microfon pe copertă. Unul din citatele care m-au impresionat era: „Folosește-ți cuvintele, Lake!”, iar microfonul exact asta exprimă :)

Așadar, ce părere aveți? Ați citit cartea? Care dintre coperți vă inspiră cel mai mult?

Synopsis

Playboy billionaire Braydon Decker changes women more often than designer ties. Scarred and humiliated as a teenager, he pledged long ago to never trust a beautiful woman again. But then he never imagined meeting one quite like Jain Parker. Jain, a dedicated medical research scientist, learned early in college that her good looks were a hindrance and she’d have to tone down her beauty to be taken seriously, thus, Plain Jain was born, and men were no longer an issue. Of course, she didn’t count on running into Braydon Decker. A successful venture capitalist, Braydon holds the key to whether Jain’s research company sinks or swims. When the two are forced to work together on a fundraising campaign, they’re instantly drawn to one another, despite their individual vows to remain unattached. As they navigate unchartered waters, their inability to trust wages war with their desire to love. Hearts are broken and trust is shattered when betrayal and lies are revealed. Will the truth bring them healing and forgiveness, or will it be too late? Breaking Braydon offers readers an emotional, compelling story filled with heartwarming humor, romance, heartbreak and love.

Iubirea dintre Anna şi Bennett este mai mult decât o relaţie la distanţă: ea trăieşte în Chicago în anul 1995, iar el este un călător în timp şi vine din San Francisco, din 2012, aşa că cei doi nu ar fi trebuit să se întâlnească niciodată.
Totuşi se întâlnesc şi se îndrăgostesc… Şi, înfruntându-şi soarta, găsesc o cale de a fi împreună.
Nu este însă un aranjament perfect, căci Bennett nu poate rămâne în trecut decât pentru perioade scurte şi ratând intervale mari din propriul prezent pentru a fi cu Anna. Amândoi sunt totuşi optimişti că vor reuşi să rezolve problemele…, asta până când Bennett este martorul unui eveniment la care, în mod sigur, nu s-a aşteptat.
Deciziile pe care le va lua începând din acest moment vor conduce oare spre un viitor pe care nici el şi nici Anna nu şi-l doresc?
Cititorii familiarizaţi cu povestea Annei şi a lui Bennett din Iubire dincolo de timp vor fi captivaţi de al doilea volum al seriei. De data aceasta, evenimentele sunt relatate – în acelaşi ritm alert – din punctul de vedere al lui Bennett. O lectură ce nu trebuie ratată de pasionaţii cărţilor de dragos aventură.

Synopsis

The truth is in the evidence. Follow your nose, keep an ear to the ground and don’t believe everything you hear. Tyson Cartwright has always known who he was and becoming the Adirondack Pack’s Enforcer was the goal from the very start. He loves his job, but not today. Someone in the pack isn’t who they say they are. It isn’t the first time and it won’t be the last that Tyson has to rid the pack of a spy. These are the people he calls his friends and family and one of them is lying to him. His gut has an idea but is it just because he doesn’t like the man his sister has taken up with or is there something more to Jack Naughton? For Jenny’s sake he better know for sure it’s Jack before dispensing justice because once a wolf goes over the line, there is no coming back.
