The very first few pages of this had me firmly in dislike for the lead character. Admiration grew slowly, then all at once. With Nora Roberts’ ability to quickly and efficiently realize her characters, all the while maintaining intrigue and wonder. Introduce the male counterpart to the lead character, and you have a bold baseballer with an intensity often unmatched in other romance novellas. Intertwining two worlds I’m very interested in, marketing and major league baseball – and for me, you have a hit. An independent woman with an outright resistance to sharing her life with someone else; no matter the story, Nora Roberts seems adept at drawing me in and making me empathetic.
In the background is this simmering and sweet little romance developing. As you’re being led away on this riptide with Parks & Brooke – you sorely want more information regarding Claire…
The only true let down to this book is that I wanted more. More of their story, more of their tenacity, and more of the wave it kept me on.
