This book had really good character development and is an excellent example of how romance novels don't have to be explicit to be enjoyable. I am disappointed that the second book in the series is abridged, because I would much rather listen to the full story. I think I will check out the book from the library so that I don't miss anything. This is a very good series!
This was a nice follow-up to Catch of the Day. This is actually the third book in the series, but the second is not available in audio format. Good story that draws you in and makes you feel part of the town of Misty Harbor. A very relaxing read.
This book is really good! It has nice plot, and the characters are funny and endearing. It's true, there is not a lot of controversy in the storyline, but sometimes you just want a nice, relaxing read. This fit the bill in spades! I will definitely be looking for more form this author.
“I love all genres of books, however when I listen to audio books as I clean, garden, drive they are better with a lot of heat!
I loved this book by Julia London and the real romance she develops between Jake and Robin, as well as the real problems the two must face and overcome in their quest to be together and try for their own happily ever after. I am so glad I read this book. It was a contemporary romance that depended on developing real relationships and just the right amount of sex to add some spice to the listen. If you want a real, feel good romance this is the book for you.
Robin Lear has it all, or so it seems. She has money at her disposal and a cushy job. She can take one of the family jets to Paris on a moment's notice or shop frivolously for designer shoes. But she's still seeking the approval of her father, who's now dying of cancer. When he decides she must make it on her own, she has no direction except that of ex-lover Evan who dogs her every step. Both humorous and poignant, it's fun to watch her growth into a mature woman.
She's hired Jake Manning to renovate her mansion and has ridiculed him from the beginning. She's unaware of his struggles with his nephew or that he's close to his degree in architecture. She does recognize his virility, and there's a strong attraction. Jake is aware of their different places in society although he refuses to take a back seat to her status. He fears her relationship with Evan but plows ahead despite it. He uncovers a real person beneath the veneer.
I enjoyed this book from beginning to end. I laughed, then shed a tear at the unexpected conclusion. Pick up this book if you want to read about people that are flawed but become more aware of themselves as the book progresses. A good contemporary romance.
Natalie Ross was outstanding with the delivery of the story.
