Definitely, No Ordinary Love

I thoroughly enjoyed this book! I thought the suspense and romance blended quite nicely. Alex was an amazing woman and incredibly strong both physically and mentally. I loved the fact that she could take care of herself. I also thought the author really captured the human side of her by making her vulnerable to emotion this kept her from being Superwoman. Xian seemed to be such a powerful, yet sensitive person. Xian has a calm and patient role in this story. His growi...more

This is an exciting and fast-paced book that combines romance and suspense fairly harmoniously. However, as a BW/AM book I'm afraid it's not nearly as good as my favorite, Gold Mountain. There's just too much stuff that beggars belief. Alex's past in the Special Forces is just so over the top that I kept rolling my eyes. The part that had me almost throwing my Kobo was that she takes down a drug dealing opium growing warlord in Columbia. Yes, Columbia with a U. Most of the Chinese people in this...more

Okay, couldn't stand losing any more braincells. The romance is more of the chemistry-less insta-lust that romance characters indulge in, and it is cringe-worthy. Characters are sort of thrown in one after another with little development, so I while I might know their role, they are throw-away characters not worth remembering. The writing style of the author is fluffy romance, which doesn't at all convince me when she writes her heroine getting angsty about her harsh, tough, covert-ops, deat...more
Many of my Gfriends advised me that I would prefer this novel over another of the author's novels, "Frost on my Window." While I like the that Ms. Weaver melded a love story with action/adventure in "No Ordinary Love," I feel the writing in this book is "choppy" in the way scenes do not seem to connect and the way the characters relate to one another. The story does not unfold in a way that makes me feel for the characters or understand them particularly. They all just seem to be "there" popping...more
I am going to start this book in a little while. I am going to keep an open mind because I have gotten good and bad reviews of this book. I am not sure how I feel about some of the bad reviews from some of my associates though. They're a little too...stereotypical (is that a word? it is today lol). So I'm not sure how if I can really take their reviews into account. BUT like I said I will keep an open mind about the book. :)

So I read this in a day or so. Not long after I fin...more
Book Description:

Surrounded by children, she planned to start anew. However, when she meets Chinese businessman Xian Liu, she quickly finds herself drawn into a web of murder and industrial espionage that threatens to destroy her fragile new life before it’s even begun.

This was the first book I read were the main...more
No Ordinary Love was a good, fast read. Alex's chemistry with Xian was perfect. And I felt that she really cared about his son, Chou. Some of my favorite scenes were those featuring Alex and her students. Despite portions of it being cliche (Xian also knows some karate...), I thoroughly enjoyed this book. I hope to see more IR romances featuring BWAM pairings. This is only one of a handful.
An okay interracial romance novel. Not the best written romance novel; similar to a novel length version of what one would find on some romance story websites: characters are brought in without it being made clear exactly how they relate to the main character, subplots are introduced and then dropped without much detail, etc.

Like this one. The action in it was great and I thought of how well the plot and characters work. However I felt like the romance was just not working. There was too much talk about the attraction and no real action to go with it.

I did not like the way the players in the story were, it started out like it was going to be a good book but it fell short.
I loved the suspense of the story. I also enjoyed the relationship between the heroine, hero and child.
great book. if you are into romance novels with interracial couples, this is a must-read!!!!!
