Two short stories, both with a good dose of passion and interesting plot lines.

Did not like all the details about playing tennis. But Partners (part 2) kept me interested.

Two shorter romances re-released between two covers with unequal levels of enjoyment for me. The second one, Partners", was alright; features a rich virgin and a dishy cynic, both chasing a murder story for their paper - the murder plot added some interest as background and the setting was suitably atmospheric. It was quite entertaining. The first one (Opposites Attract) was a struggle, though - unless you love country club yuppies and tennis pros, avoid. In all fairness, the second one almost s ...more

This book, is the kind of book that wouldn't let me put it down. I would always be eager-ed to keep on reading and reading. The love on this book is amazing, its the kind of love that you always want to happen to you, and the kind that gives you hope that maybe one day you will experience love that way, just as the books you read.

Ik kwam niet door Gemengd dubbel (zelfs beststellerauteurs schrijven niet altijd even geweldig), Nevels in de nacht was OK. Wel grappig dat de schuldige hetzelfde type was als in het boek dat ik daarvoor las: Aurora Teagarden Mysteries, Real Murders. En nee, in beide boeken had ik het niet zien aankomen. Hoewel, wel een beetje in dit boek.

I'm kind of embarrassed to say that this was my first Nora Roberts book. I know - I'm so late to the party! I really enjoyed this and I look forward to reading more from her. I only picked this up because I thought the cover was so stunning but I’m glad I did.

I liked the idea of having two separate stories in one book. The first story I thought it was kind of weak with no strong twist or events it was just the struggle between the two lovers. The second story was perfect it had all the elements of suspense and love. It kept me on my toes.
