Publisher's Summary

A summer spent traveling across America with cynical, brooding photojournalist Shade Colby was not Celebrity photographer Bryan Mitchell's idea of a dream assignment. But Bryan will have to manage for an entire summer if she wants the fabulous cross-country photo shoot for a book, which they're both salivating over. However, Bryan and Shade disagree about everything...everything, that is, except the fierce attraction they have for each other.

Entertaining

This is the story of Bryn (if you read/listened to Second Nature by Nora Roberts this is Lee's friend at Celebrity.) This story wasn't quite as good as Second Nature, however, it is still easy listening. The ending was anticlimactic but sweet. Shade wasn't all that appealing so it was hard to see the attraction (for either.) I love Nora Roberts so it is hard for me to not recommend her or this book.

What a great summer!

I love Nora Roberts’ work and this book did not fail me. I felt as if I were on the road with Shade and Brian. With Ms. Roberts’ descriptive writing skills, I could actually visualize the book that the photographers were hired to shoot.

If you’re looking for an easy listening book and one that prompts you to visualize what the characters are doing, then this one is for you.

No story line.

No story line. Just cheap, boring, lustful sex. Doesn't even deserve to be called a romance.

I didn't love it or hate it..

What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

My main issue with the book was the ending.. It felt extremely rushed and wrapped up very suddenly. Even the epilogue felt lacking.

Any additional comments?

I really enjoyed this story and the narrator. I loved the cross-country photo journey and the characters themselves.

It was a very cute story.

What did you like best about this story?

It flowed well with some suprises along the way

What does Jill Apple bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

She was good. I would have liked more inflection in voice when speaking for the charcaters

Terrible for Nora Roberts

Many of Nora Roberts' newer novels are great. This one is as corn ball as they come. I had a hard time finishing it, despite it's short length.The narrator was bad.

As always in Nora Roberts style she creates interesting characters with a great plot. I would definitely recommend.

Ok

Was a very early book for Nora Roberts. Good but definitely not one of her best.
