LOVE, LOVE, LOVED this book!!!!

Just a few quick words, since there are so many fabulous reviews on this already.

I've had this book on my shelf for almost a year. I wasn't sure about the futuristic concept, so I kept putting it off.I could kick myself for waiting so long!!

The characters...PERFECT!!! The Story...AWESOME!!!
I totally get the Roarke attraction, and let me add, that it was a refreshing change to see this alpha male that exudes such power, and dominance, actually embrace his self questioning attraction to Eve instead or running away.

Eve Dallas is an excellent heroine, and lovable too. In fact she has earned her spot in my top favorite heroines ever, She makes me smile just as much as Roarke. Eve has a lot of baggage, stemming from her childhood. She is clever, funny, caring and compassionate when it comes to her job. However resistant to the chemistry building between her and Roarke in the beginning, when she gave in, it was such a great thing for her. And she could care less that Roarke has more money than anyone....heck, he owns 25% of the world.

Robb kept me guessing who the perp was, there are several possibilities as the story goes, and I couldn't pin one down for sure. And the futuristic concept isn't overdone at all. Characterization was fantastic!! This is definitely a series I'm looking forward to visiting again, and again!! I mean, there are only like 31 or so books, and I'm looking forward to each one.



EXCELLENT READ. Copyright 1995....yes...1995!!

Crazy4more Hey Rhonda, just finished Betrayal in Death (In Death, #12) by J.D. Robb (5 stars) and want you to know, it's still so good! I was like the series has 30 something books, how can one maintain the excellence? one couple...Roarke & Eve!

Take your time, so worth every read.


Rhonda I'm looking forward to all 31!
Thanks !


Crazy4more We're in for a good long ride! I was at Costco and saw the latest book. My most concern was seeing Roarke's name....check! it's all good and the read continues.
