Review/recenzija: Kristen Ashley: Raid


Recenzija na hrvatskom nalazi se ispod recenzije na engleskom ❤


I'm starting to sound like a broken record, but this series keeps getting better and better. After Knight and Creed, ladies, meet Raid. We're now on novel number three in Unfinished Hero series by Kristen Ashley.



Hanna Boudreaux has been in love with Raiden Ulsyssen Miller since she was a little girl. She's a nice, polite young woman that still has a crush on a man who doesn't even remember ever speaking to her. She loves him and he doesn't even know she exists.
Until he does. Raid takes one look at her amazing legs and funny bike and he's done. She possesses that kind of true beauty, he wants for himself.
She's his prize, for the things he's been through, wor the deaths he still hasn't come to peace with.
This funny wild girl is everything he has ever wanted.
The only thing he has to do to live his happily ever after is survive his nightmares, his fear and the enemy that's coming after him.
And it's all worth it. Because in the end, there she awaits, his prize.


Here they are, my two favorite characters thus far. 
I've talked about Raid with some people already and we've all agreed that this book is far better than the first two, which is actually great, because it promises more with every book in this series  we have ahead of us. The main characters in this novel, Hanna add Raid, seem more realistic, the plot is more convincing and the scenes more natural and believable.

Hanna has grown to my heart for being so simple but so inventive. The simplicity of her life and the way she makes for living is such an opposite to the complexity of Raid's past and his personality alone. 
Hanna's grandmother is the very best. Her humor and kindness make perfect balance for all the silent and frowning characters, and it makes her more than memorable. And the cat? I was under his spell in less than a second. He had me at his first meow.



I love Raid for multiple reasons. In this novel I've found the most interesting dialogues, a casually flowing plot and it also seemed to me that, unlike Knight and Creed, the whole novel was brighter, full of hope, but still it hasn't lost the serious note the entire series is based on.

The whole crew of unfinished heroes, Knight, Creed, Raid (and the two we haven't met yet) live by their own code of honor and walk a thin line between tle law and chaos. But Raid seems like the only one who does the thing he does and feel actually good about it. And it's not just because he claim it, it's actually visible in the way he is, funny and playful. That differs him from his friends and that is what makes him my favorite.

The next two novels in this series belong to Deacon an Sebring. I'm intrigued by the way Deacon is portrayed in this novel so I'm curious about his book. An then there's Nick, a wildchild...interesting...

So, ladies. Trust me. You want Read.

Ako ste s užitkom čitale Viteza i Creeda, dame moje, Raid je frajer koji će vas osvojiti.
Ako pak vam je malo škripilo uz Viteza i Creeda, ne bojte se, ponavljam, Raid je the one! Treća knjiga po redu iz serijala Nesavršeni muškarci, Raid, dolazi iz Mozaik knjige i za nju imam samo riječi pohvale.


Hanna Boudreaux od malih nogu zaljubljena je u Raidena Ulsyssena Millera. Ona je mirna, pristojna djevojka koja i s dvadeset osam godina pati za ljubavlju iz djetinjstva, gleda u Raida iz prikrajka i nada se na će je on zamijetiti.
A onda ju zamijeti. Raid odmjeri njene savršene noge i komični bicikl i jednostavno ne može odoljeti toj istinskoj iskrenoj ljepoti.
Nagradi za grozote koje je preživio, za smrti koje još nije prebolio...
To je to, Hanna je njegova.
Ta vrckava, divlja, smiješna, a ujedno dobrodušna djevojka upravo je ono što je Raid cijelog života želio. 
Jedino što mora učiniti, da bi doživio svoj sretan završetak,  naučiti je nositi se s noćnim morama, vlastitim strahom i jednim gorkim neprijateljem.
Sve to vrijedno je borbe zato što ga na cilju ga čeka najbolja nagrada.


Evo dosad mojih najdražih likova u ovom serijalu. ❤
 Puno ljudi s kojima sam do sada prokomentirala Raida i ostale nesavršene muškarce, tvrdilo je da je Raid najbolji Ashleyn roman dosad. Ja se slažem. Likovi Hanne i Raida  vještije su razrađeni, radnja je uvjerljivija, a scene maštovitije. Cijeli autoričin izričaj u ovom romanu dobrodošla je promjena, a mislim da će čitatelji to zamijetiti. Roman djeluje uvjerljivije, opuštenije, a opet ne gubi na ozbiljnosti.

Hanna mi je prirasla srcu otkad sam pročitala na koji način zarađuje za život. Toliko je jednostavna, a opet tako snalažljiva, da se već tu ističe kao jedinstveni lik. Njezina baka je ideal, u svojoj toplini divna je suprotnost i ravnoteža likovima koji su predstavljeni kao hladni i proračunati. A mačak je apsolutni rekorder. Za medalju. Osvojio me dok kažeš mijau.


Raida obožavam iz više razloga, a najveći je taj da se u ovom romanu najvjerojatnije poklopila ta ravnoteža između upečatljivih dijaloga, zanimljive radnje i najvjerodostojnijih likova. Nekako imam osjećaj da se, za razliku od likova Viteza i Creeda, autorica nije razderala od muke da ga prikaže na određeni način, već joj je njegov lik došao prirodno. 
I Vitez i Creed, cijela ta nesavršena ekipa, žive po kodu časti, vlastitim zakonima i moralnim smjernicama koje provociraju i izazivaju. Od svih dosadašnjih muškaraca, Raid se doima kao jedini koji se osjeća zaista zadovoljno u svojoj koži. On je zaista siguran u svoje poslanje, a mi ga zbog toga vidimo u drugačijem svjetlu.


Sljedeći na redu iz ovog su serijala Deacon i Sebring. Oboje su me zaintrigirali, makar moram priznati, Deacon malo više. Volim kad se pošteno koprcaju prije nego što ih strefi Kupidova strelica 😆

Drage dame, vjerujte mi, želite Raida. Želite ga.
