This Story Is Seductive

Publisher's Summary

B. J. Clark despised him. As the manager of the Lakeside Inn, she could only feel contempt for Taylor Reynolds, the man who had bought the hotel. His reputation for transforming lovely hotels into modern resorts preceded him.

But when Taylor arrives, B. J.'s loyalties become divided between the hotel and staff and the hot, torrid kisses that she and Taylor share.

NR fan

I enjoyed most of NR's books, some I consider great love stories. This one didn't have much meat on the bones.

Classic Romance!

Where does From This Day rank among all the audiobooks you???ve listened to so far?

This falls right in with my favorites! The humor and sexual tension compliments the characters and just leaves you with a smile on your face.

What other book might you compare From This Day to and why?

Seduction by Design by Sandra Brown read by Jenna Stern

Which character ??? as performed by Therese Plummer ??? was your favorite?

Both main characters are great, but Ms Plummer did such an excellent job with inflections, I loved her voice changes from the southern accent of the cook, to the seductive tones of Taylor Reynolds.

So disappointed

I love Nora Roberts but this story is so full of sexism and sexual harassment. The characters are so removed from the strong women and enlightened male characters I am used to

Sexual Harassment

The manager BJ is unprofessional from beginning to end. She's great with the staff and guest but with the owner Taylor she's a hot headed fool who should've been fired. Taylor is sexually harassing BJ from nearly the moment he met her. This is book is old from Nora's 1983 catalog. If this is what people were writing and reading in the 80's then I'm glad I wasn't old enough to read them. The narration was done by the fabulous Therese Plummer but no one could save this book.

Ok story but unbelievable

This story scream of a womanizer and cry’s out sexual harassment. Until the end do you not understand this mans intentions. Made me angry as no woman is that stupid in the workplace.

I first read this story many many years ago. Now I have heard it on Audible. Therese Plummer narrates. While she has pleasant voices for the characters I didn't appreciate her interpretation for BJ or at times others. I know NJ looks very young and is naive but Me Plummer made her sound like she was too young. She didn't have the air of authority needed to manage anything let alone a inn.

It is a fairly simple story all in all and somewhat predictable. I was not overly invested but entertained nonetheless.

Narrator was engaging but story was off

I love a good romance but I’m there’s always a little twist when writing about relationships when people work together. Several moments where there’s room for question - “Ummm... this could very easily be sexual harassment...”

“Me too”!

I kept waiting for BJ to report Taylor for harassment!! The characters were not well developed and the plot was week.
Big disappointment! Nora Roberts is one of my favorite authors but this book missed the mark.
