Apr 07, Seena Seena rated it really liked it. I just finished Dream Lake and I want this installment.
I love that we readers are truly the luckiest people out there in our crazy world that we get to read these magical stories! I think I was more disappointed in this book than any other LK one. And Christmas Eve at Friday Harbor set quite a high or low as it were bar on that one. Let's just make two thing clear: I'm a girl who loves magic. I love it in my books, movies, you name it. I've waited and am still waiting for that late Hogwarts letter and have watched Charmed like a thing possessed.
The second thing is: I love Lisa Kleypas. I love the Travises and the Wallflowers and I think she's an amazing wr 2. I love the Travises and the Wallflowers and I think she's an amazing writer. Um, no, sorry. When magic is done I want the whole thing.
I want the complex world and its history, I want various beings and cultures, or in the case of some steamy PNR, I want a hot werewolf. I don't like this magical realism or whatever this is called. This whole series was skewed for me. Dream Lake and Rainshadow Road managed to somehow work, if not thrill, but here maybe because the magic level was so ambitious it simply failed.
Let me explain the story. She's alone, she's lonely, she has mommy issues. She does the forbidden thing with the grimoire that reverses the curse and, naturally, falls in love with the first guy she meets.
Which happens to be Jason Black. But you see, there's an ancient something which makes sure all men a witch loves die pretty quickly.
Really, there's not much more to say. He was abused, is ambitious and happens to be lacking the ingredient which would lead him to the afterlife. And he, by chance, runs into a powerful witch. Yeah, right. In any case, a few days, a boom, a bang and a few spells later, they are in love, getting married and problem free.
Let's just say all that didn't work for me. The Magic I know I already said it, but it needs repeating. The inclusion of magic felt awkward, forced and weird.
Its rules, limitations and place in our world were barely skimmed. I won't even get into the soulless thing. Plus, I think it played too much of a rule here. It was used to bring our couple together, explained them falling in love, served to drive them apart and then save their lives and whatever.
All that kept other things blurry. Such as: The Relationship I would've said the characters, since I'm not a big fan of how they turned out either, but they were relatively okay, so All their failings could be seen through their relationship. First of all, I totally understand the desire to pin everything on "Love at first sight" and "Soulmates". Why bother agonizing to make love believable in pages when we can just say it was "meant to be" and pay attention to other stuff?
Like spells. Not to say there's nothing between Justine and Jason. There is. There were some really good scenes, BUT far less attention was payed to them than they deserved. Than we are used to with LK.
I think what makes her unique as a writer is creating really strong, believable characters, pairing them off and having them build something real, despite the troubles and doubts they face.
Here, everything was too fast, they go from not knowing one another to love so quickly. Again, yes, there were conversations, but I ended up not buying it And Jason's behaviour sometimes? I admit I have a weakness for Fictional Men of Ice, but c'mon, he was inconsistent. He, the man of ambition, had an ultimate game plan, and then just Fell in love, but decided to be an ass for her, and not for his end goal.
I just have no words. Too unstructured and strange. Speaking of uncharacteristic: This wasn't quite it. Nor, again, did it feel right for the characters and their situation and personalities. Lyricism and Humor Reading LK always makes me feel good.
Some books are lighter, some pretty dark, but there's still a certain beauty and fluency of writing which is so easy to read. Also, the banter and witty dialogue in her books is so fun. Here I caught glimpses of both, but not enough for me.
For instance, I loved the Truth and Dare scene. It felt infused with heat and secrets. Love appeared when you didn't want it and refused to go. It was like an invasive species that entered your garden without warning, and proceeded to grow wildly out of control, resistant to every method employed to kill it.
Basically, love was pigweed. THAT, I'm looking forward to. View all 7 comments.
Laughter, tears, and an intensely hot love affair contained within a mere pages? Why yes, I am reading a Lisa Kleypas book and loving every second of it!
Lisa gives to us Crystal Cove, a place where magic literally does happen. A place where a cursed witch fated to never love, dares to break a horribly dangerous curse all in the hopes that she will just feel love for once in her life Justine Hoffman, a hereditary witch who struggles to f Laughter, tears, and an intensely hot love affair contained within a mere pages?
Justine Hoffman, a hereditary witch who struggles to find love, discovers that there's a reason why and soon works to rectify the situation. What she uncovers though may put everything she holds dear in jeopardy.
Justine has a long way to go to learn what true love is. Her mother will never win a mother of the year award, and she finds her trust tested time and time again. We get to go on a wonderful journey with her as she discovers love, submits to love, and finally fully embraces love. Jason Black is classic Kelypas 'magic'.
He sort of starts off standoffish, closed, selfish and a little cold. Once he meets Justine however, everything, absolutely everything changes. He unfolds as one of those heroes you will melt over again and again and again. Jason will do anything for the woman he loves. His love for Justine is so very precious and beautiful to watch unfold.
He's a man who has everything anyone can imagine and finds himself desperately searching for a way to move heaven and earth to keep Justine in his life.
The possibility that he may not be able to control the single most important thing in his life is incomprehensible. But his love for Justine has changed him completely and he finally learns what it means to really live.
One of my favorite parts: You've given me the best days of my life. And it was enough. Those three well worn, everyday words got the job done. Lisa Kleypas really outdid herself with this one. Jason Black is her typical alpha male, but with a little bit of Dom thrown in. He likes control. He likes a little bit of bondage play, and he likes his woman submissive. Its uber spicy and toe curling yumminess. His focus is completely centered on Justine, and Justine only.
Christmas Eve at Friday Harbor, Rainshadow Road, Dream Lake, and Crystal Cove
You will find yourself wishing for a moment you could trade places with her. The steamy scenes in this book will keep you nice and toasty in the frigid nights of this very cold winter. Find my reviews at page Dec 06, Miriam Stern rated it liked it.
And I'm done with Crystal Cove It was okay. I'm giving it four stars because it has witchcraft and because it also has a gamer as a main character although Jason is a bit unrealistic as a gamer Things I really liked: Jason and Justine are sweet and loving and it's a nice chemistry. Things I didn't like: You can see part of the ending miles away and where are the other Nolans!?!
In itself, the book is good, and it's certainly entertaining, it's just not the big deal. Had it not possessed the element of magic then I'd given it 3 stars. This is far from her best.
I mean Where are the St. Vincent, Hardy Cates, Cameron Rohan kick ass stories? But you tell me. I definitely miss the historical romances. She should get back to those.
Magical realism romance readers, Contemporary romance with paranormal elements readers. We started this on audio, but I finished it on kindle. I liked this one a lot more than many of Kleypas fans.
In fact, I liked it quite a bit. I probably helped that I didn't have high expectations. I liked Justine from the other books, but I wasn't particularly attached to her character. She seemed a bit shallow but kind in the other books. I have the feeling that Kleypas didn't have Justine's character fleshed out initially. She must have spent some time with Justine in between Dream Lake and We started this on audio, but I finished it on kindle.
She must have spent some time with Justine in between Dream Lake and this book and came up with who we see in Crystal Cove. As Kleypas continues the magical realism theme in this series, this one is very much "Practical Magic.
Justine is a hereditary witch. She's not heavily into it, although she does at times do some minor spellwork. Justine realizes that the reason why she's hasn't had luck with love is because her mother cursed her to never fall in love. Justine does a spell of her own to remove the geas.
This backfires. In the meantime, she meets Jason Black, a billionaire badboy tech genius who buys up Alex Nolan's land to build a retreat for his business. Jason stays at her inn and there is an instant attraction between them. Jason is the kind of man who is dangerous to a woman. He has no concept of love or commitment. And he has a good reason. He has no soul. I can't say that all of Jason's issues arise out of his souless status.
It's moreso due to his abusive father and how he treated his mother. I liked that Jason is part Japanese and this culture is part of who he is. They both share some family trauma. Justine's mother is a horrible person.
Jason's dad is a horrible person. Both have been shaped by their horrible parents. What an interesting combination. I didnt' really get the whole no soul thing. It was pretty darn real. It doesn't make sense for my own spiritual perspective. But okay, I just went along with it. The witchcraft thing is something that you can idea ignore or embrace, but if it's a hard limit, this isn't the book for that reader. Since Kleypas is going with "Practical Magic", it's hard to not have it in this book.
Like always, Kleypas' writing is beautiful and immersive. Jason has a bit of a kinky thing going on with the bedroom, but it's not out of my personal comfort zone.
He has some control issues, and that thing he's into delves into this aspect of his personality. Out of the books in Friday Harbor series, this book is the most sexually explicit, but it makes sense with the characters in the book.
I have to admit, I really believed in the love that developed between Jason and Justine. They are both cynical about love, so it's so beautiful the way it develops between them, and it's a sacrificial love. The conclusion is both strange but also very beautiful. I liked this book a lot more than I expected. I ended up falling for Justine and Jason. While witchy romance isn't my favorite kind of paranormal romance, I think that Kleypas served up a lovely one here.
I definitely preferred this to Rainshadow Road. The character of Jason has so much more substance than Sam, in my opinion. I think I prefer Justine to Lucy as well. My Friday Harbor Book Preference: Dream Lake 2.
Crystal Cove 3. Christmas at Friday Harbor 4. Rainshadow Road View 1 comment. Sep 23, Jess rated it really liked it Shelves: Review posted: Happily Ever After - Reads Blog rating: The bad feelings between the two get even worse when Justine figures out that her mom cast a spell on her as a young girl so that she would never find love.
He still wants her spellbook but now for a very different reason. Take or leave all the spells and outside influence, I loved seeing their romance blossom, even over the course of just a few short days. His head bent until his mouth was near her ear.
This happens once in a lifetime. Even without knowing everything about her, you get her. You know who she is, and it works for you on every level. With as open as they were with their feelings, there was one instance that left a bad taste for me.
After Justine felt so horribly deceived when she found out that a spell was put on her when she was young and she had no say in the matter, she goes and tries to do the same thing to Jason. It was easy to keep sole focus on the leads and I like that they took over and had that big of a presence. Lisa Kleypas has put a magical spin on the town and people in Friday Harbor and I enjoyed getting to know Jason and Justine.
They have a sweet, sexy story and I looked forward to every scene they were together in on page. Crystal Cove is a book filled with romance and is a nice addition to this enjoyable series.
I got this paperback from my public library book sale. I tried to read a different book in this series a long time ago, but wasn't able to get into it, so I set it aside. I dismissed the series ever since, but after seeing this paperback I decided to try again on impulse because Kleypas is one of my all time favorite authors. This book was like nothing I've ever read from her before, and I'm sad to say, not in a good way.
The blurb intrigued me. A heroine who has been cursed to never find her so I got this paperback from my public library book sale. A heroine who has been cursed to never find her soulmate?
Sign me up. However, I found her "natural born witch powers" to be hokey and unbelievable. In fact, the entire plot and conflict was strange. The central conflict was the fact that view spoiler [ the hero was born without a soul and would not live a long life as a result.
You see, souls in this book are not doled out to everyone. And when people born without them die, they don't have any afterlife, they become nothing more than a pile of bones. So poor Jason's is living on borrowed time, and in addition to that? All witches are destined to lose the man they love early.
No fear for the characters, or flutters over their romance. And around halfway through I easily guessed the resolution to their problem, so when I got to the end there was no surprise for me at all. I'm honestly not sure how I got all the way through this. The beautifully romantic and lyrical writing Kleypas is known for seemed to be completely missing as well.
I didn't feel an ounce of anything for this couple because their feelings evolved over about a two day period and the romance was non-existent. I love so many of her historicals and her Travis family.Dados do eBook St.
What Justine doesn't know is that her mother placed a spell on her that prevents her from falling in love. Justine Hoffman, a hereditary witch who struggles to find love, discovers that there's a reason why and soon works to rectify the situation. Has he finally crossed over the threshold to insanity? Lisa Kleypas. I just couldn't reconcile this So I keep first book for to be read after published book 2. Not in United States?
