I thought this book was fun and lovely. We have Jackie MacNamara of the famous MacNamaras from other Nora books. She is a terrific character. Jackie is spirited, energetic and kind. Throughout her life she has tried many different interests. Even though she was successful at them, they weren't quite right. Now she has decided to write a novel and her tricky cousin lets her sublet a gorgeous house in Florida he is housesitting so she can concentrate on her novel.
Enter the dashing owner of the h

A nice and sweet story, nothing too exciting, one of Roberts earlier works. What I like about her writing is that she almost always writes about strong heroines and although this time it was the heroine that fought for her man and pursued hi,, she still managed to stay classy and strong.
The push and pull hero wasn‘t really to my liking and as always with such short stories character development or plot are almost non existant. I was entertained nevertheless and got what I expected from this boo

"Loving Jack" is the story of Jackie "Jack" MacNamara and Nathan Powell.
When Jackie rents a house out of the city to find peace and write her book, she never expects her cousin would scam her and give her a house who's owner was to return very soon!
Nathan is shocked when he finds his house having an intrude/unwanted guest in the form of flighty Jackie. Soon she persuades him to let her stay and thus begins the story.
The couple is polar opposites. While Jackie is eccentric, impulsive and vivaciou

A very pleasant, easy to read story from Nora Roberts. Not even much angst in this one!
Carla *Jen7waters*
Este é um livrinho muito pequeno, daqueles que requerem quase zero de concentração e que se lê de uma assentada, bom para aquelas alturas em que não apetece pensar no que se está a ler e só se quer algo para distrair o cérebro e relaxar. Não digo isto em tom pejorativo porque eu gosto bastante da Nora Roberts, e os plots dela ainda que sempre virados para o romance, têm sempre uma dose de um drama qualquer capaz de comer a cabeça do leitor durante um bom bocado, o que não acontece com O Homem do ...more

Author: Nora Roberts
First published: 1989
Length: 315 pages
Setting: Contemporary. Fort Lauderdale.
Sex: Infrequent. Not explicit.
Hero: Architect.
Heroine: Flighty but settling down to write romances.

Well, it was readable and it came to an end. There’s not much more to say about it than that.

It was written well enough. The characters were interesting enough. The plot (completely relationship driven with very little drama) was fine.

But the book, overall, was nothing remarkable.

Flighty Jack MacNamara wants to be a writer and with the help of her cousin, she's found the perfect place to start that career. A wonderful house in Florida that she's rented for three months. Stuffy Nathan Powell, just wants time alone in his own house but he gets the surprise of his life when he finds Jack in his bed. It seems Jack's cousin pulled a fast one and told Nathan the house was empty and ready for him while telling Jack the same thing. Jack makes Nathan a deal to cook for him if he ...more

Novela corta. Lo cierto es que la usé para despejarme un poco del principal que estoy leyendo (que no logro agregar acá porque no parece estar registrado).
No le tenía mucha fe, lo cierto es que simplemente buscaba algo muy light para paliar la lectura de "Voces para ver".
Entretenida lectura para pasar el rato. Simpático que para ser una novela romántica se cambien los roles y la persona que dude de lo que quiera sea el hombre y no la mujer; y que quien tenga todo clarísimo sea ella...

Jaquelyn "Jackie" MacNamara sublets the house she fell in love with from her cousin only to discover the owner isn't using the house just as a vacation home and that the lease money she paid to her cousin is gone along with the man.

I didn't like this one. It was cheesy and slightly creepy thanks to the Fatal Attraction behavioral tendencies of the heroine.
She was also a flighty air-head who fell head over heels in love with the hero after just a couple of kisses and then pushed and prodded until

Well that was certainly a lovely read for a Sunday Afternoon. A lovely romantic story as I've heard is typical Nora Roberts, great read. Just what my Doctor Ordered a nice bit of Romance.

This is my 3rd Nora Roberts book the previous 2 were McKade brother novels which I Loved too. I'll certainly be reading More novels by Nora in the Future.

What made this story so enjoyable was Jack's (short for Jacqueline) personality. I think the story might have been just your average romance novel without her. She was a delight; I couldn't wait to see what she was going to say next!
Cute little love story!

Sweet romantic love story .

Absolutely loved this book. Very well written and leaves you wanting more.
It was ok, but I have enjoyed many of Nora Roberts books more.
Kristina Bogataj
Very interesting story, a light reading for the hot summer days, but similar to so many others. Otherwise very good and funny written, you just cannot stop reading till the end.
Angela Jenkins
The main character Jack kind of bugged me. It was basically a super cheesy romance novel. But it was entertaining enough to finish.
Rushed and cheesy like all of these shorter romances, but a light, enjoyable read. The connection to "Lawless" made it even better.

Loved the characters in this book. She was so free loving and hilarious. Could you imagine knowing someone like her? I do have a friend that is pretty similar.
