Looking for Adventure (Inglés) Tapa blanda – 30 ene 2012
Descripción del producto
Reseña del editor
After being diagnosed with a brain tumor, Jonathan looks back on his career-focused life and sees nothing but empty years behind him. His desire for success has left him without a single happy memory, and completely alone.
While shocked by the news, he stumbles into Nino: a man without a steady job, without a permanent home, and as happy as a person can be. On the spur of the moment they set off on an adventure by the sea, with good food, loads of sun, and rising attraction. Only both hide secrets from each other as they fight against the sparks that keep lighting the flames.
They set out for some fun, but found the adventure of both of their lives...

It takes a terminal illness to make Jonathan loose all his inhibitions. and if anyone could turn a man gay it would be Nino.
When Jonathan finally admits his love and lust for Nino he gives himself 100%. I really like how committed he is, he never wavers.Nino is just the guy to give Bee his happily ever after.
Bee and Nino have a wonderful summer by the sea,and are nice enough to take us along for the ride!
I felt I had a few things in common with Jonathan because I've been work driven for such a long time and I suffer from chronic headaches, so I admit I was also a bit scared and sometimes I felt the story was a bit too close to me to make me feel really comfortable. Jonathan is a character that is not opposed to changes, but they have to happen to him. Like me. He is not the one who makes the first move or dives into things, but once he's there, he embraces them and gives himself to the flow with a surprising generosity. I'd like to add: like me. How much does it depend on the fact that he is been diagnosed with an inoperable brain tumor? I like to think that Nino would have rocked his world by proximity nonetheless.
Nino is one of those blessed people who try to make the best from the most difficult situations. He is not careless, because he gave me the impression that he always knows where he stands, especially when he is in a difficult spot, but he is not easily defeated and his enthusiasm and spontaneity are irresistible. So irresistible that even a guy in a suit like Jonathan can't help surrendering to him.
Jonathan and Nino are probably, for each other, the thought that they would have never considered and it was exciting to see how attraction turned to lust and then to love, especially how Jonathan learned to love Nino, and how the surprise became urgency in their rough love making. It was a bit sad that for Jonathan the intensity of it depended on the fact that he was on borrowed time, while for Nino it was the real thing since the beginning. But for Nino it was also his own very first real thing, because up until Jonathan he never had anything for himself.
I spent some time heartbroken and angsted (I know it's not a word, bear with me), but thank God, this is romance, so I believed the unbelievable and embraced the improbable and now I'm relaxed and almost happy, thinking about small heavenly islands in the Mediterranean sea and without a headache. Sex and a good story make it bearable, you know...
Anyway, I really enjoyed this book. It's the kind of book you want to read when you want a little bit of angst with a dying character but know for sure there's going to be a miracle at the end. It's a sweet read that had me shedding a few tears but had me smiling by the end of the story.
I loved Nino and Jonathan and how they just seemed to be the complete opposite of each other. Nino is adventurous and spontaneous; he doesn't much care whether he has a job one moment and none the next, he's optimistic. Jonathan is a workaholic, a hermit that has never done anything adventurous in his life.
When Jonathan learns of his terminal brain tumor, his life is flipped upside down. He's not sure what to do but running into Nino (literally) makes him realize he doesn't want to spend his last days just working. He wants to relax and does the first spontaneous thing in his life by hiring Nino as his chef/guide and takes off for the island, unwittingly falling in love with Nino in the process.
It's a light-hearted read that'll give you a few laughs while you watch how Jonathan lets loose and learns to actually live and gives both Jonathan and Nino the home they've been looking for. Definitely recommended.
While I enjoyed the premise of the book, sort of a post-ghosts visit Scrooge and Jonathan is changed as he realizes the things in his life have not made him happy and he decides to change his life, there were some niggles I had with portions of the plot. First, Jonathan allows Nico to fall in love with him, but doesn't tell him he's sick. This sort of betrayal seemed to me to be something even a character in a romance novel would have a hard time forgiving. Second, the medical issues stretched credibility and were extremely unrealistic from my perspective.
But despite these concerns, "Looking for Adventure" is an appealing book about one man's realization that finding and keeping love should be the most important element of his life, not work. So, if you are incurable romantic that believes love can conquer anything - then this is the book for you. 3 stars.
