Confessions of a Werewolf Supermodel By Ronda Thompson

    READ Õ E-book, or Kindle E-pub Æ Ronda Thompson


    Yazarının öldüğünü öğrendiğim bir seri. Asla nasıl bittiğini öğrenemeyeceğim. Bu seriler konusundaki en büyük endişem bu,bencilce biliyorum ama aklıma gelmeden de edemiyorum.

    Lou Kipinski, bir supermodel kurtadam; arada sırada tüyleniyor. Birisi ona benzeyen kadınları öldürmeye başlayınca Teddy adlı bir polis ile aralarında ilişki başlıyor. 7 yıllık bir Stefan platonik aşkından sonra ilk defa düzgün bir ilişkiye adım atıyor.

    Lou mezuniyet balosunda Tom adlı, ona tecavüz etmek isteyen bir çocuğu kurda dönüşerek öldürüyor ve kaçıyor. Evlatlık olduğunu bildiği ailesini aramıyor. Şimdi ise hem kim olduğunu öğrenmek, hemde onu öldürmek isteyen katili durdurmak zorunda.

    Modellerin dünyasına bakış attığımız bu kitap çok eğlenceli olmasa da orta derecede sürükleyiciydi. Serinin diğer kitapları olsaydı okuyacağımı biliyorum. En yakın kız arkadaşının lezbiyen olması da değişik bir karakter çeşitliliği sağlıyordu.

    Kitap ilk başta saçma görünse de kesinlikle öyle değil. Kan, ölüm, polis gibi ciddi meselelerin yanında kızımızın bazen gerçekten yavaş algılaması ve kozmetik ürünlerine saplantılı olması kurguya heyecan katıyordu. Güçlü bir erkek gelsin de beni kurtarsın türü bir bayan olmaması da artı puandı. Polisiye- gizem türü de olması sıkıcı olmasını engellemişti.

    Kitap boyunca Lou kendi kimliğini bilmiyor. Vampirlerle konuşup sentetik bir kurt adam olduğunu öğreniyor, aynı Tom gibi. Katilin de o olduğunu öğreniyor. Kitabın sonunda her şey hem çok farklı hemde aynı. Aşk hayatı dersek, başka bir adamla çıkmazda. Kimligi desek, hala bilinmiyor. Cindy kendine model bir sevgili yapıyor ve Lou'nun evinde kan bankasından çaldığı kanları buzdolabında saklayan bir vampir var.

    En sevdiğim özellik:
    Lou'nun tek bir erkeğe saplantılı olmaması.3 kişi arasında gidip gelmesi. Kedini idare edebilecek güçleri olması. Yer yer kendine güvensizliği ve biraz boşboğazlığı ile potlar kırması. Paperback I really enjoyed this. Nice light read. Wanted to thump the lead upside the head a couple of times though. *laughing* It's really too bad there won't be more due to the author's passing since she was obviously setting things up for a series. Many questions left unanswered. But don't let that stop you from giving this a try. No cliffhanger here, just unresolved question about her past. Paperback Lou is a supermodel with a secret...she is a werewolf. Why, when, how...she doesn't know. but it isn't easy to grow facial hair and fangs just before a photo shooting.

    I liked Lou a lot! She was funny, girly, sexy and sarcastic; and I think it is the exact formula for a chick lit protagonist. She is also strong and fierce. As a bonus, I liked all of the characters. They didn't seem to me like stereotyped. Besides, there isn't just one hot male character...there are three! and you can choose the one you would like to dream with at nights.

    In this book there is a lot going on at the same time. Mystery, love, sex, friendship plus the paranormal stuff, I thought maybe it wasn't going to work but it does. I don't know how, but it isn't every day when I can find a chick lit / urban fantasy book that works so great without being excessive.

    I also enjoyed the writing style. I was fun, light and fast. Maybe if you are looking for something more paranormal you will feel this book doesn't have enough. I think it's because it was intended to be the first book of a series and Lou is just beginning to discover about the underworld.

    It's a shame that the author, Ronda Thompson, died. It happened the same year this book was published. I am not sure if this is the right thing to say, but it would have been a great series. Many questions are left unanswered, and I really wanted to read the sequel.

    Posted at OH MY BOOKS! http://oh-my-books.blogspot.com/2010/... Paperback I'm honestly suprised...this book is not that bad so far. I stood forever in front of Targets book shelves debating on a book to get, not wanting to spend the 15 dollars so grabbed the cheaper one that caught my attention, not really having much faith it would pan into something worth writing about...but based on being halfway through already, I would read the next should one come out.

    The idea of synthetic werewolves, and the mystery surrounding the main character is enough to keep me reading. Not a bad way to spend an afternoon. Paperback Confessions of a Werewolf Supermodel is a light and fun read. The characters are entertaining and the suspense continues at a gradual climb until the final few chapters where it sky rockets. At times, the story seems to put too much emphasis on Lou's possible bedmates, but the plot picks right up a few pages later. Along with many others, I am sad that there will not be other installments in the series. I would have thoroughly enjoyed uncovering Lou's past with her.

    If you are looking for a fun, humor filled page turner concerning supermodels, werewolves, hot men, and a sprinkling of vamps for good measure, spend a few afternoons with Ronda Thompson.

    Confessions

    Funny murder mystery with lots of paranormal and a little romance. Quick fun read. Paperback Totally enjoyable! Not your average werewolf story. I loved Ronda's writing style...it's fun,not dark like others Ive read. I recommend this ,100%! Paperback Lou is a top model, earning the big bucks and setting her own schedule. If only those dang patches of fur and the occasional fang outbreak weren't getting in the way. Ever since prom night, Lou has known she was a werewolf but never showed any signs of her...uh, condition. But Lou's got a dark past, one that's much darker than she knows. And hiring a private investigator to find her birth parents might be stirring up a big, furry mess of problems. But Lou has other distractions, like the one wearing a badge and asking her about two women who both bear a striking resemblance to Lou and who have both been brutally murdered. That's when Lou realizes those nightmares she's been having exist outside her dreams.

    I liked this book more than I thought I would. But actually, I would have rated it at 3 1/2 stars. The big climax was over too quickly and it wasn't like I didn't see it coming ever since that scene in Central Park. There are far too many unanswered questions, most of them seemingly intentionally left hanging as fodder for a sequel but there doesn't seem to be one.

    Still, I love a good werewolf book. Paperback I can't read this. I kept trying but it's just not clicking. It's like a bad date I wanted to end before it even began. I couldn't even get through chapter one without finding SO MANY PROBLEMS. From what I read, the writing seems okay. Granted, I only made it in a few pages. But I couldn't seem to get past the style. First person present tense. This format of writing is difficult to follow. And what's worse? Since I don't just read for enjoyment (don't know how to, really), I'm struggling to keep up and gauge how often the writer sticks to present tense, or if there's times the writer perhaps screwed something up.

    I can't. I just can't. I wanted to. Hell, I've owned the book for YEARS before I finally found the time to tackle it's secrets. But now that I'm here, I'm finding that those secrets aren't something I can handle.

    Sorry if you enjoy this book. I hope you do. I hope I can find someone who'll want my crisp, brand-new (old yet never touched) copy, cause I certainly won't be sticking around for it.

    Sorry luv'. It's just not going to work out for us. I can see it now, so I hope you'll find someone else.

    Tossing. Paperback Review to come :) Paperback

    Supermodel Lou Kipinski seems to have it all. But beauty is only skin deep--and sometimes Lou's porcelain complexion can get a bit hairy. The only thing worse than a furry fashion faux-pas? Fangs in her million-dollar smile. That's what happened six months ago, when Lou had her first outbreak. But now that she's at the height of her career she absolutely must find a cure…So what's a single werewolf gotta do?

    Then a sexy detective comes knocking on her door. Two women who bear an eerie resemblance to Lou have been killed--something with teeth and claws tore them apart. Is it a coincidence that the grisly murders have taken place during the same time as Lou's own outbreaks? With a killer at her heels and another outbreak just a concealer-wand's distance away, Lou is soon in a race to discover truths about her own murky past. And before it's all over she may be forced to show the world that her bark is nothing compared to her bite… Confessions of a Werewolf Supermodel
