On Sunday, The Readventurer challenged us to read a book (or three) as part of their She Made Me Do It feature. Now, you know how I feel about a challenge. If you don't, here's a video that sums it up:
Basically, it's on like Donkey Kong. So yup, by later Sunday, I was done with one of the books of the CHALLENGE. Flannery picked a Nora Roberts book for me because whenever she would talk about Nora Roberts as one of her favorite romance authors, my reaction, never having read one of her books,

Once again, the head of the MacGregor clan is at it again, this time with his grandsons. As hilarious as the granddaughter one, this too is a good, funny, easy read. Makes you believe in true love after all. :)

RE-READ July 19th, 2008..New review below:

I am SOOOOOOOOOO behind for this month. I have had my mother here for 3 weeks and the book I am reading is just a LOT slower than the first two in the series. I read this Nora Roberts book just to get another book in. I needed some fluff in the mid
I am not going to review every Nora Roberts book that I have read in the past because she is quite prolific and it would get redundant and I honestly cannot remember all the plots. I think someone finds someone else attractive but at least one cannot admit it so there is sexual tension, then lots of sex, and then they live happily ever after? Sometimes there is some magic , a family legacy, or a mystery. Certainly not great works of literature (however still 100% better than “the grapes of wrath ...more

This was my second visit with the MacGregor clan after just finishing NR's MacGregor Brides and I've got to say spending time reading about how Daniel MacGregor meddles in the lives of three more of his grandchildren (D.C., Duncan, and Ian) was more fun this time around.

Like MacGregor Brides, we get three stories in one of three MacGregor males this time, however the stories were not written chocolate box style with great focus on the holidays in this book. This is probably the reason I liked t
Liked the male leads but the women were dull as dishwater. Not sure what the heck was wrong with the first two female leads but they were just plain stupid and unbelievable. They had absolutely no sense of humour and no true reason that I could discern for walking around with a stick up their ass.
The last story with Ian was the best of the three. But even so, it did not make up for the other two. Wish it had been the first story before I lost my patience.

Another success for Daniel MacGregor paring off his grandchildren and starting them off with their families.

Let me be clear and straight-forward here. I hated this book. I hated it so much that I didn't make it even to page 100 and I tried really hard. I did. (I love books and I believe that you should give them a chance but I'm not a masochist.)

1. It was not imaginative. It was borderline offensive.
--So the grandpa decides to meddle in his grandson's lovelife and his main argument is that he needs to get married and settle down. Such a banal and stupid argument. Really? If there was some other motiva

Apparently today is abandon-the-crappy-book-you-are-reading-day but hopefully given the genre, people will not blame me for giving up on this book. This was my first (and last) Nora Roberts read. It was incredibly boring. No character development. Lame dialogue. Lame descriptions of sex scenes. Lame problems. Just really lame. Would not recommend this author.
Juliana Philippa
I debated between 2.5 and 3 stars --- I liked two of the stories and the last one really had potential, but in my opinion there is just NO WAY that you can present two characters, have them meet and get to know one another, and watch them believably fall in love in only ~100 pages!! At least, that's my take.

I loved these stores in the series. We find that Daniel is still trying to meddle and has moved onto his grandsons. The book is divided into three for D.J, Duncan and Ian. I found each one the stories really good and funny reads. Finding myself laughing out loud at times especially as each grandson didnt realise they had been set up till they had fallen in love. Great stories, I especially loved Duncan's story and how their story was similar to Justin and Serenas. Cannot wait to continue in the ...more

In this three-in-one, Daniel MacGregor is at it again. This time he's set his sights on three of his grandsons. It's high time they were married and Daniel has the women all picked out.

First there's DC. The moody artist that has recently returned to Washington. It's there that his family is and it's there where he's decided to settle. When the MacGregor calls him up for a favor, DC figures that Daniel is up to his old tricks of matchmaking, but the MacGregor has changed his strategy. He's decide

New York Times bestselling author Nora Roberts is probably best known for her series books. Usually written in trilogies, Roberts has created one large, sprawling family headed by Daniel MacGregor (known as "The MacGregor") who not only has a story of his own, but also plays matchmaker for his children and grandchildren. The MacGregor Grooms tells the story of three such matches that The MacGregor makes for three of his grandsons.

Cinta Daniel Macgregor kepada keluarganya sangat besar. Dan setelah cucu2nya dewasa, keinginannya yang paling utama adalah melihat mereka semua menikah dan memiliki anak2 disekeliling kaki mereka, termasuk 3 cucu laki2 favoritenya (bukankah dia selalu mengatakan kepada setiap cucunya, mereka adalah cucu favoritenya hah!)
Dalam buku ini, Daniel dengan cerdik menjodohkan 3 cucu laki2nya, DC putra tertua Alan dan Shelby, Duncan putra kedua Serena dan Justin, dan Ian putra bungsu Caine dan Diana.

La vecchia volpe MacGregor colpisce ancora! XD Probabilmente se fossi uno dei suoi nipoti o dei suoi figli l'avrei già soffocato con il cuscino nottetempo ma da osservatrice esterna quale sono trovo alquanto spassose le sue macchinazioni oltre che incredibilmente intuitive visto che si concludono sempre in un sicuro successo! XD Il primo obiettivo è il suo

Excellent book.

I enjoyed this look. The entire series has been great. I love the way the entire family is described in there sharing and close relationships. There is so much warmth and caring among all of them. The siblings in many families have had that wonderfulness chance. Thanks for such a great read.

Még sose olvastam Nora Roberts könyvet. De nem bántam meg. :) Mondjuk egy sorozat közepébe léptem bele, de nekem így is nagyon tetszett.
Kedvencem nekem is a nagy MacGregor lett. Nagyon agyafúrtan szervezkedett, és végül mindig igaza lett.
Kíváncsi vagyok a többi részre.

This is a great novel. I laughed, I cried, and I giggled some more. Reading this novel made me wish my family was the MacGregors. I long to meet my own Ian, and that was definitely my favourite story out of the three in this book. I'm glad his was the last to read (despite the fact that it made me stay up an hour later than I should have so I could finish the story). If you want a great romantic read, this is def on the top of my suggestion list :D

I'm so tired of tropes like "I'll never fall in love" or "it's so sexy when you didn't listen while I said no but now I'm enjoying this unwanted kiss SO MUCH."

Some amusing parts though. Some steamy trashy sex would've bumped the rating up a notch, I tell you what.

A great quick easy re-read about the wonderful family The MacGregor's and the crazy old Daniel who is back to his matchmaking ways. This was similar to the granddaughter book with three stories, three grandson's. I loved all three of the stories: D.C who is set up with Layla a goddaughter of a family friend. Duncan who is set up with Cat in a very similar way to his parents, which I loved. Then finally Ian who is set up with insecure Naomi.

I loved each of the stories, especially as each grandso

Great classic

I read this once when I was in high school. I was drawn to it again. And again I enjoyed it. I only gave it 4 stars because I did not really like the middle story. The ending story made me cry a little though.

I did not care for this series. I felt that there was more romance than story which did not interest me. I did finish the series to see if it gets any better and also felt obligated to finish series at that time in my life.

Story: Old favorite comfort read. I do love it when The MacGregor matchmakes. 4.5 stars

Narration: Great basic narrative. Good to great accents, distinct voices from acceptable to good to great. 4-4.5 stars

All three Grandsons got hoodwinked by Grandpa.

Like I have said before I love the MacGregor family. Grandpa Daniel MacGregor wants his grandchildren married and babies. Good stories.
Short romances featuring the male grandchildren of the MacGregor Family. I liked Ian's story the best. I think I would have preferred longer stories where you got to see the couple more.

Another light-hearted romantic read. The Macgregor grandsons this time are the targets of their grandfather's scheming to find them the perfect spouse. Very enjoyable.

Three stories of 3 MacGregor grandsons all who are of marriageable age. The MacGregor finds each the ideal girl, sets the stage and watches what happens. Fun.

Love the MacGregor's!! I want the stories to never end! Daniel MacGregor's ghost has to be a thing setting up the great grandkids!
Ok. Not as good as the Brides series. The Grooms weren't very interesting: an artist, a gambler, and a lawyer.
