Second Nature (Celebrity Magazine #1)
This book was just like its hero. Frustrating.
I didn’t know what to think about the hero – he was alternating between being a jerk, tenderness, creepiness, anger etc. I never read about a more mercurial personality.
The heroine mostly got on my nerves, because she thought one thing and did the other. Her actions around the hero are perf...more
Second Nature revolves around a reclusive horror author and the reporter determined to get him to talk. They are both serious contenders in the game of cat and mouse. Eventually, romance becomes the new name of the game.
Neither of the protagonists are particularly likable, to me at least. But Roberts is skilled at he...more

Logo ao inicio, a coisa que me ocorreu perguntar à Nora foi: no meio de tantos nomes femininos, porque foste escolher Lee e Bryan para o nome de duas mulheres? É que ao entrar na históri...more
I'm not opposed to romance novels. Rebecca is a long-time favorite, A Room with a View is full of longing, and for a more modern pick, The Night Circus is brilliant.
But this. THIS. Is crap. Sorry, Nora Roberts fans, but you can do better. Loaded down with excessive...more
Lee Radcliffe was determined to meet and question Hunter Brown and work was paying for her to go to the writers conference in Flagstaff, AZ. He's an award winning writer and she can't understand how others can read whathe writes and keep going for more of his thrillers. She hopes to meet up with him there.
Hunter is there to pick her up and very attracted to her upon sight. Love the talk of the area, the nature, mountains, dessert, canyons, sun/moon sets.
There are stipulations when...more

Over de beroemde bestsellerschrijver Hunter Brown doen de wildste geruchten de ronde, maar nog nooit is het een journalist gelukt hem te spreken te krijgen. Hij is even ongrijpbaar als de gevaren die in zijn thrillers op de loer liggen, concludeert Lee Radcliffe. Als dat geen uitdaging is voor iemand voor wie het onmogelijke maar nét interessant genoeg is! Uiteindelijk slaagt ze er inderdaad in de man te strikken voor een interview. Alleen stelt hij wel zijn eigen voorwaarden. Ze beweerde toch...more
Really like Hunter's character. Thought Lee was a bit too much of a pushy 80's woman, but still likeable.
A well-written book, but nothing path-breaking or great. I read it as part of the anthology, Summer Pleasures, and it was as the name suggested a light summer read.

"É mais acertado dizer que não acredito em nada. Só nas possibilidades. Não há limites para as possibilidades."

Um romance fofinho. Gostei muito de Hunter e achei que a forma como o romance evoluiu foi muito boa e querida.
