©1987 Nora Roberts; (P)2002 Books on Tape, Inc.
This book saved my sister and I on a car trip from San Jose, CA to Nowhere, TX. We were laughing out loud at the dialogue between Whitney and Doug. The reader did Doug horribly, totally unsexy, but the book was good and you can ignore it.
Well thought out with excelent dialogue. This book is a keeper. Fun, entertaining and sexy, Nora Roberts can be a little slow at times, but this was by far one of her best novels. A+
I love Nora Roberts and had read this book (but quite some time ago) so listening to it again brought it all back. She is a great storyteller and this one had a great adventure. I hope you give it a try you'll enjoy.
just the right amount of thrills, romance and humor - I agree that the ending was a bit too... abrupt? tidy? I don't know - I'm no writer! but it didn't seem to live up to the potential she had developed. Overall, though, I really enjoyed the story very much. Loved that "bad guy/good guy" hero thing. Irresistible!
The dialog was so contrived I could barely listen to it. The characters were luke warm and there was no believable build up of their going on an adventure together. without giving it away - they literally stumble on each other and the next thing you know off they go! the reader was awful at the male voices - it actually sounded as if she was making fun of their roles. If her other books are like this then I just read the last one. in a nutshell - yuck!
I just finished this book and thought that it was wonderful. The interplay between the characters was unique and yet classic. The adventures that they got into was great and the tension between them lasted to the end.
I enjoy Noras books so much. I needed some easy listening, not wanting to keep track of a lot of characters. It fit the bill, it was easy, fun, interesting and I am sorry to say I think now have all her books. I enjoyed it, wish I could find more that weren't just four or five hours. I don't like short books. She just can't write them fast enough for me. Good book, worth the credit.
A waste of time but I perservered because I really enjoy Nora Roberts books. Don't make the same mistake I did. Trite and predictable.
