Gabe: The Alvarez Security Series (English Edition) Reviews
Grundsätzlich war dieses Buch eine recht putzige Romanze mit ein bisschen Suspense obendrauf. Aber ich kann mir nicht helfen, irgend was stört mich an dieser Geschichte.Ich versuch mal, es ein wenig aufzudröseln, ohne zu viel zu spoilern...Zunächst mal sind mir eine ganze Menge Schreib- und Grammatikfehler aufgefallen. Und als nicht "Native Speaker" will das schon was heißen!Dann hat Haupt-Prota "Gabe" mal blaue und mal grüne Augen, Namen der Neben-Charaktere werden verwechselt usw. usf! Okay, okay... Das Buch ist kostenlos, allerdings ist das IMHO kein Grund, nicht wenigstens einen Beta-Leser drüber schauen zu lassen.Desweiteren beschreibt die Autorin die Beziehungsentwicklung der beiden Haupt-Protas über mehrere Monate hinweg, was ich als etwas langatmig empfand. Der Sinn dahinter ist vermutlich, "Gabes" Entwicklung vom Salonlöwen zum Pantoffelhelden glaubhaft darzustellen. Nun ja ... Mir war das insgesamt etwas too much.Auch hätte ich zum Schluß noch gerne erlebt, wie die Bösewichte ihr Fett weg kriegen ... doch leider Fehlanzeige! Das fand ich schon sehr enttäuschend. Und obwohl die Story eine FSK 18 Empfehlung der Autorin hat, erschien mir das Buch doch eher auf die New Adult-Leserschaft zugeschnitten.Aber egal...Drei Sterne ist mir das Ganze auf jeden Fall wert. ;-)
Für mich hat dieses Geschichte die richtige Mischung aus Lovestory, Gangstergeschichte und Special Forces. Von keinem zu wenig und von keinem davon zu viel.Habe mit Gabe gezittert, mit Jenny gefiebert und um Ross gebangt.
This story is actually a very good one. There were just a couple of things I couldn't overcome on the quest for 5 stars.First, I know and appreciate the fact that the author warns readers that this story contains harsh language and explicit scenes but the hot instant orgasm scene at the very beginning between Gabe and Jennifer and before they even know anything more than each other's names is a bit ridiculous. Seriously! "Hi, I'm Gabe and I think you're special" kiss, oral sex, orgasm, "oh, I'm not usually that kind of girl, I don't even know you." Gah! Sphht, blech!!! Might just be personal preference but that's a believability chasm I just can't jump - especially set against the type of character we are supposed to believe Jennifer is.The ending, also left a huge thread hanging by not allowing us to learn whatever happened to the bad guys.. Especially those that we thought were good. We need closure in the story, not just in the romance.But, those bumps aside, the rest of the story is top-notch romance with a taste of suspense at its best.
Overall Rating: 4.5 Rockin’ StarsIf you are in the market for a phenomenal romance that includes giant size alpha males with some really incredible skills (physical and mental), then this is the book for you! In Maryann Jordan’s first book in the Alvarez Security Agency series, she introduces us to an amazing group of men and women that form an unusual family. The base for this family is a group of brothers that served together in the military, where they formed a close knit brotherhood. This is Gabe and Jennifer’s story. A story that tells of their fight to keep and protect the love they have found within each other’s arms.War changes a man! You become a member of a brotherhood, always protecting your brothers’ back and watching out for one another. It also haunts those men that see the unthinkable happen. Women and children used as pawns in a war they had no place to be in. Gabe Malloy is such a man, a man that loves his county and honors his fellow warriors. When he leaves the military he becomes part of a security agency formed by his team leader and friend in Richland, Virginia. Gabe finds himself wanting more than the one night stands and party lifestyle he has been living. Something is missing in his life, but what? When he stumbles across a fairy princess in an alley, he realizes she is what is missing in his life!A giant was blocking her path! The man was not only huge but beautiful as well. He was also a player, not someone that would give a girl like her a second look. Jennifer cannot believe it when her giant begins to stalk her, telling her he wants to get to know her! She has never been one for one night stands and has too many things on her plate right now to get involved with a man. Even if the man is everything a girl dreams of! Her parents were killed in a car accident a year ago and she became the guardian of her eight year old brother. With her job as an advocate for the elderly and caring for her brother, there really was no time left for a man. But will she be able to convince Gabe of that?When unexplained things begin to happen, Gabe and his brothers pitch in to find out what is going on. Someone wants to get Jennifer out of the way and they are willing to do anything necessary to accomplish their goals!Hero: Gabe Mallory 4.5 starsHeroine: Jennifer Lambert 4.5 starsSteam: 4.5 starsPlot: 4.5 starsCliffhanger: NoWould I recommend this book: Yes! Hunk-o-licious giant sized alpha males and petite gutsy women burn up the pages of this scorching sexy read!Would I recommend this author: Yes! Ms. Jordan not only touches the heart of her readers with her stories, but also salutes our men and women in the armed services. She is an artist that paints pictures with her words and her work is worthy of time spent reading!
If you like romance, suspense, intrigue, and downright hot alpha males then this book is for you! Maryann Jordan has combined her story telling abilities with a knack for character development and written a book that is full of interesting people, some good and some really not good, but all combine to make this a hard one to put down. Gabe and Jennifer heat up the pages from their first couple of meetings, even if Gabe doesn't"t shine in them. Their chemistry is inexplicable as he is a very big man and she is almost elvish but they make it work. (Boy do they!) She is legal guardian to her brother Ross and the bond that develops between him and Gabe is wonderful. Add to the mix all the big alpha men at Alvarez security and the entire book becomes a read that you will truly enjoy. As the suspense builds and things get stickier, Ms. Jordan brings us all along for the ride. I enjoyed the way Ms. Jordan brought out the depth of emotion these tough veterans had inside them. They aren't the rough, tough, insensitive brutes one might assume at first. That's not to say they aren't hot and Ms. Jordan writes some very steamy scenes that don't leave a lot to the imagination! I look forward to reading more of the books about these interesting men!
Going back and re-reading is one of my favorite things to do. In doing so I am going to review those that aren't already done. This is one from 2015, and I love it!Gabe gets the surprise of his life while on a break from his bodyguard duties to actress Alicia Morgenstern. What he thought was a dumpster diving child was instead a beautiful young woman.Jennifer is looking for a box to put the leftover unused bread and food from the kitchen of the hotel in. The manager donates to her center for the elderly. She never expected to meet a blond haired giant who suddenly has a movie star hanging all over him.Star-struck and not by Alicia, Gabe makes it his personal mission to find the lovely young woman he startled in the alley. What he finds pleases him and he knows he has finally met the woman he is meant to be with, but he has to convince her of it.Jennifer is a social worker whose focus is on the elderly. She lives with her little brother at the center she obtained the grants for. Grants that included a 5 year lease. She isn't looking for love but she may have found it anyway.This is a favorite scene after Gabe has almost made her acquaintance twice, and finally succeeds behind the restaurant again. Well sort of anyway.Now getting to know Jennifer isn't an easy thing and Gabe experiences plenty of frustration.I love these two together and unbeknownst to either of them the Center has caught the eye of a real estate mogul who doesn't like to fail and the excitement begins.Lots of sizzling scenes, family fun and older veterans make this a wonderful read.
