My favorite couple was Sunny’s and J.T.’s, the temperamental ones, spending their time arguing or literally fighting. The other two were likable enough too (though what kind of name is Liberty Stone) but they were a bit too mellow for my taste. All day they did nothing but avoiding each other (until they got together of course), and it kinda got a bit boring after a while. I also liked the girls’ parents, who interestingly enough were going to be both household names into the future (she was a rug weaver whose work was going to get in museums and his herbal tea company was going to grow to be huge and famous even after three centuries).
When I was young I really liked Nora Roberts books, but it seems like my opinion is changing. Most of the time lately I find them almost too boring to go on. You usually get two characters in the beginning, and you know they are going to get together (sometimes they are the only two characters, what else could happen). Most times these characters, though they are madly attracted to each other and they have no actual reason why they shouldn’t be together, keep finding various reasons to postpone it *yawn*. Avoiding to touch each other, stuff like that. A bit boring when nothing else happens, to keep your mind occupied. And parts of this book are very much like that. Luckily there are a few interesting scenes too, when characters stop avoiding each other and stuff happens, but my general state was ‘unexcited’.
As a conclusion, it probably is an OK book if you want a simple, plain romance. Two (four) people madly loving each other and making passionate love to each other. If you want something more than that I wouldn’t quite recommend it.
