AaaaAAAAaaaa! Po napornem dnevu me je tole ful lepo presenetlo in mi polepšalo dan... čeprav izgleda.. Edina beseda, ki mi pade na pamet je "ominous". Oh, in še creepy. Že kr vidim, da bom histerična po tem ko jo bom prebrala. Oziroma še pred izidom knjige :D .

Pa še en snippet:

“Do you remember a man named Antonio de la Vega?” Liam asked, his eyes narrowing.

Antonio de la Vega je bil omenjen že v Cut & Run - to je bil nek kriminalec, ki ga je Ty lovil in mu je pobegnil (na začetku knjige), in na koncu mu Burns reče, da je Antonio doživel letalsko nesreče in ga pošlje v Baltimore z Zaneom.

In še flashback snippet iz preteklosti, ko sta bila Ty in Nick vojaka:

Nick’s knees went weak and he fell to the ground. Rocks tore into his shins and hands, but the pain barely registered. The horizon wavered, the landscape mocking him. He lowered his head to shut it out. He just had to shut it all out. His body was giving up on him, and neither he nor Ty would make it far enough to get help.

This was it. They’d gone as far as they could go.

He felt Ty collapse beside him. It took them several minutes, but they finally shifted and turned so they sat with their backs together, propping each other up, keeping watch in opposite directions. Always watching each other’s six.

Nick rested his head against Ty’s and closed his eyes against the brilliant blue of the sky. He was dizzy, like he could feel the world tilting. His body was relaxing into Ty’s, absorbing the warmth.

“We’re going to die here, aren’t we?” he asked. He was shocked by the rasp of his own voice. It was the voice of a man who’d died days ago but didn’t realize it.

Ty turned his head. His breaths were harsh in Nick’s ear. “We’re not dying here. This is not the way it happens.”

Nick tried to swallow, but his mouth was too dry. He turned his head as well, pressing his cheek to Ty’s. Ty’s shoulders had a tremor to them. They were both caked in blood and dirt. After all the battles, the guns, the knives, the kicks to the gut. After all that, exposure and exhaustion were going to kill them. Ty didn’t deserve to die like this. Fuck it, neither did Nick. He was a good Marine. He was a good man. He deserved to go out fighting, to go out meaning something.

They didn’t deserve to die lost in the desert, with only their dog tags to tell their story. They didn’t deserve to be forgotten.

The world had become a waking nightmare, and the hope that had pushed them forward was fading into nothing. Even Nick’s training was failing him. There was nothing that could prepare a man for hopelessness, that could prepare his body to push beyond the idea of death.

The only thing that had gotten him this far was the man with him.

“I can’t think of a better man to die with.”

He felt Ty shake his head and begin to move. “Not today. Not here.”

“Ty.”

“Get up.”

Nick fell to his back as Ty moved, the support from behind suddenly gone. Nick stared at the blue sky and shook his head.

Ty crawled to his side and grabbed him by the shoulders, tugging at him. “Get up, Marine.”

Nick stared into his eyes. His entire body trembled as Ty pulled him up to sit. There was nothing left, but he desperately wanted to be strong at the end. He desperately wanted to be the kind of Marine his friend was. He lowered his head.

Ty pressed his forehead to Nick’s cheek, his hand curling around the back of his neck. “Come on, Irish,” he pleaded. “Get up.”

“It’s over, Ty. We’re done.”

“I don’t believe that. And if you don’t get up, you’re killing me just as dead as you.”

Nick ground his teeth together and glared at Ty. “Bastard.”

Ty held out his hand.

Nick reached out to grip his forearm, and they pulled each other to their feet.

AAAAaaaaaAAAAaaa! Datum izida je znan: 8. april 2013.

Slika

In blurb:

After having their faces plastered across the news during a high-profile case, FBI Special Agents Ty Grady and Zane Garrett have become more useful to the Bureau posing for photo ops than working undercover. Just as Zane is beginning to consider retirement a viable option, Ty receives a distress call from a friend, leading them to a city rife with echoes from the past.

New Orleans wears its history on its streets, and it’s the one place Ty’s face could get him killed. Surrounded by trouble as soon as they land, Ty and Zane are swiftly confronted with a past from which Ty can’t hide—one with a surprising connection to Zane’s.

As threats close in from all directions, both men must come to terms with the lives they’ve led and the lies they’ve told. They soon discover that not all their secrets are out yet, and nothing lasts forever.

Kaj sem še včeraj spregledala:

Na strani od založbe imajo še warnings glede knjige: drug use in explicit violence in additional details:
Erotic frequency: 2 - Not many
Heat Wave: 4 - On-screen, mildly explicit love scenes
Genre: action / thriller, contemporary, mystery / suspense, romance
Pairing: gay
Ending: ambiguous
Tone: gritty, humorous
Theme: addiction, angst
Kinks: barebacking, hate-sex/angry sex, orgasm denial
Era: contemporary
Settings: America, New Orleans
Careers: law enforcement

Zdej me je včerajšna evforija, da imamo znan datum in blurb že malo minila in me je začelo skrbet, ker res zgleda, da bosta šla narazen.. :108: Pa tudi "drug use", "addiction" - menda ne bo Zane spet zapadel v odvisnost? :025: In vse kar je napisano pod kinks namiguje na to, da bo en varal, ker barebacking imata že od tretje knjige, tak da ne vem zakaj bi bilo tu omenjeno in hate/angry sex.. To, da sta njuni preteklosti povezani se že nekaj časa govori med fani - najprej glede Liama, zdaj pa tudi zaradi Antonia. Pa pomislila sem tudi na to, da bi lahko bil razlog za to, da sta sploh pristala skupaj pri prvem caseu, ki sta ga imela pomemben.

ja, vse kaže na to, da bo neki ornk poknalo med njima... :108: :108: :108:

In to bo ful nasprotno od te zadnje knjige, kjer sta oba padla v sweet romantičn vzdušje... Po moje je avtorca mal brala review-je pa je vidla, da je večino folka to motlo, da sta oba postala taka sweet zaljubljenca, pa je to naslednjo bukvo naredla hard varjanto... Čeprav mene je mal to strah, ker Ty je tak, da ko se njemu edn zamer do konca (kar čist možn da se mu Zane bo), ni šanse da kej za nazaj pr njem popravljaš... Ful ne vem kaj točn pričakovat od te knjige, sam vedn bolj se mi zdi, da bo kaka solzica prtekla pr meni...

Mislim, da je to knjigo načrtovala odkar je sama prevzela pisanje. Ker je še pred izidom S&S2 na blogu pisala o tem, da nam bo sedma knjiga "blow our brains out", oziroma nekaj v tem smislu. Meni je všeč, da je bila šesta knjiga takšna romantična, ker če bi že tam bilo med njima polno problemov bi začela zbirka spominjat na špansko limonado, kjer imajo polno problemov vse do zadnje epizode. Ali pa sta se že prej obe dogovorili o tem, da bosta mogla prebrodit večje probleme, kot do zdaj, ker drugače ne vem kak bi lahko načrtovali devet knjig.

Mene je mal bolj strah kakšno skrivnost skriva Ty, ker je Abi skoz namigovala na to. Čeprav lahko da nas je zavajala in da v bistvu je Zaneova skrivnost bolj huda. Mam občutek, da bo Zane padel v odvisnost nazaj, če (/ko :cry: ) bosta šla narazen. In da mu bo to Ty zameru. On pa bo jezen nanj, ker mu je nekaj velikega prekrival.
sam vedn bolj se mi zdi, da bo kaka solzica prtekla pr meni...
Pri meni bo tekel potok in bom v depresiji še kakšen teden po tem, ko bom prebrala knjigo :108: . Če ne bom postala histerična še preden bo knjiga sploh izšla, ker do aprila je še dolga :015: .
