❮PDF❯ ✐ Letters to Kelly Author Suzanne Brockmann – Agedanna.info
I read this one, long ago it s still enchanting Cinta Lama Bersemi Kembali.Kelly dan T Jackson Winchester the Second yg akrab dipanggil Jax atau T sudah saling suka sejak Kelly berumur 16 thn Jax adalah teman sekamar kakak Kelly, Kevin Sbg kakak yg protektif, Kevin tidak mau Jax memacari adiknya, jadilah hubungan mereka penuh kesalahpahaman dan salah tempuh.Plot cerita sebenarnya unik, gabungan epistolary surat menyurat dan krn profesi Jax adalah pengarang novel, Jax punya kebiasaan aneh yaitu mengajak ngobrol ngobrol tokoh tokoh utamanya di novel Yg mengganggu saya adalah seringnya flashback, langsung alur di masa sekarang, alias mirip bubur ayam yg diaduk FYI, saya tim bubur ayam gak diaduk.Dan karakter Kelly juga gak banget bagi saya Super plin plan dan jelas gak paham mau kemana tujuan hidupnya Sisi bagusnya novel ini adalah mengumbar sensualitas hubungan antara Kelly dan Jax yg super hot Udah itu aja dah. HERO Tyrone Jackson Winchester II HEROINE Kelly O Brien LOCATION Boston And Cape Cod, Massachusetts Either Way He Was A Condemned Man So Here I Sit, Writing Letters That Have No Hope Of Reaching You Until I Am Free To Deliver Them Myself With Luck, That Will Be Soon For Your Eighteenth Birthday Is Coming, And I Intend To Be There, Like I PromisedFor Years, A Trumped Up Charge And A Central American Prison Cell Kept Jax Winchester From Claiming The Girl He Loved Now He Was A Free Man Or Was He For Only The Memory Of Kelly O Brien And The Letters He D Composed To Her Had Kept Him Going But Once He Was Released, He Knew He Was Still A Prisoner In A Jail Of His Own Making The Way Out This Time Keep That Promise He D Made To Kelly All Those Years Ago And Claim Her For His Own I selected this book thinking it would just be a nice, light, romantic read and I always enjoy Suzanne Brockmann s books It was so much better than I anticipated The novel completely revolves around the two main characters, T and Kelly but there are four stories going on Story one is when they first met and the history of their relationship until they were separated, story two is T s letters to Kelly he writes in his mind while he is imprisoned in Central America, story three is what is happening presently as T tries to win back Kelly s love, and story four is the book T is writing which is really biographical of his relationship with Kelly I loved how T has conversations with the romantic hero of his novel, Jared, and how Jared argues with him about how the story should go I have heard authors say their characters tell them how the story should go but it was fun to read in a novel. Listened to this as an unabridged audio This was a little different Brockmann story, but still very enjoyable Narrator made it even better Lawlor didn t disappoint, never does Makes a casual story riveting His delivery is always spectacular Just wish I could have Patrick Lawlor do ALL my audiobooks He does such a wonderful job he should get an academy award every time. I ve got mitigated feelings regarding this book.First thing to know the story starts when Kelly is 12 and Jax 18 they both realize they re in love with each other at 16 22 Nothing happens then but kisses However I m never really quite comfortable with this kind of setting and anyway do not usually appreciate so much stories of teen love ever lasting.I really liked Jax and getting to know him, his past, why he did not fulfill the promises he gave to Kelly, how he tried to sway her once it became possible again, the letters he wrote before, those he wrote in the beach house they share He s really a good hero.Kelly, on the other side, is a disappointment I understood she turned to someone else a few months after being 18 and feeling turned down by Jax who did not show It seemed so hasty that she should marry her new boyfriend after not than a few months and move with him to California Then after her divorce, she always assumed the worst, without asking for explanations or trying to see the differences Well she really did not impress me and I thought a few times times Jax would be better off moving on and trying to find out someone else. Kinda squirmy with the hero out of college going to prom with high schooler Didn t mind the age gap after she grew up Didn t really see what made the hero fall for the heroine and stay devoted to her Not that there was anything wrong with the heroine but felt the author told than showed the love development. Wonderful book I cried and cried and cried This is a great book 3 starsI would ve loved this one a lot if the heroine wasn t so annoying and, IMO, unreasonable I loved T and the letters Even T s romance novel was fun even though it had a secret baby plot, lol Here s one letter Dear Kelly,Another day dawns and I am still here in this damned miserable cell But then you come, if only in my dreams.You come after sunset Tonight you are sixteen, and when you smile, I suddenly realize you are wearing your prom dress You are so beautiful, my heart nearly stops beating.You lean forward to kiss me, and I can feel your soft lips, smell your perfume You take me with you, back in time, and for a while I am out of here I sit with you in my sports car, wearing my tuxedo, and we kiss.You are still so young, and I still don t know any better I can t stop myself.I love you.Love, T. 2.75A few things I struggled with The author waited till the very end of the story for the hero to tell the heroine about his time in prison Why Why why WHY It s a big thing to keep a secret and was one of the reasons that kept them apart for years and she didn t know about it and kept thinking he abandoned her Drove me nuts Jax was in prison for 2 years in Central America He was beaten, whipped and punished severely So where the hell are all his scars You can not tell me he didn t walk away from that without a few physical scars I was waiting for Kelly to see one and ask him about it butnope It was very conveniently missing Contrived and totally disregarded detail of the hero s past history It was such a contrived loophole to keep the secret going The hero is a total sweetheart, he s romantic, affectionate, sexy and leads with his heart and just wants the woman he loves Nothing wrong with that But I felt he was a little too emotional at times and his reactions were a bit much in some cases I guess I wouldn t have minded it as much if the heroine didn t keep pushing him away and coming off so cold and detached I honestly didn t see what was sooooo wonderful about Kelly that had Jax jumping through hoops to get her to give him a chance shrugs Hated the hero s name Tyrone Jackson Winchester III Blech It s a mouthful and the countless nicknames were no better He likes to go by Jax which is lovely but for some inane reason the heroine prefers calling him Tyrone or T Jackson cause that sounds so much better RME , or just T in some cases What the hell kind of name is T Jackson anyways Hated it So there s Tyrone, T Jackson, Jax, and T The author kept flip flopping with all the different nicknames in the dialogue It s very inconsistent And why Kelly couldn t stick to calling him by one name irritated me The dialogue and plot were a little too corny for me I would have loved the love letters if they weren t in present tense and summarizing everything in 1st person narration Meh.
