Review: Daring to dream

Nora Roberts is a pro. When I picked up this book, I knew it’d be good but I also knew I was in the hands of one of the best writers of romance. Ever. So I paid attention.

Nora Robert’s good. For a lot of reasons.

One, her heroine Margo is outspoken, opinionated and makes a terrible mess of her life. Where I would probably create a woman that no one would like, Nora Roberts makes Margo appealing. She cares about her family, sacrifices herself for them and keeps her dignity by not throwing herself at the hero’s feet.

Josh is the hero and he too, could be disliked in someone else’s hands. He’s born in luxury, is gorgeous, flawless and a lawyer to boot. Again, Nora Roberts waves her magic with Josh and I loved him. He was quietly in love with Margo for years, never once letting her know or sharing his feelings out of respect for where she was at. And he helps her, when she’s stuck, without letting her know he did it. He’s charming, witty and still very much an alpha man.

Nora Roberts has a knack with families and relationships and this book was no exception. Margo has a chance to reconcile with her mother and make amends with her life. Things work out but there are mistakes along the way and realistic challenges that make this story not only realistic but a wonderful tale of fiction.

I particularly loved that the main plot in the story was the love relationship between Margo and Josh. The Templetons were easy to like and so realistic I could hear them talking.

If you’re a fan of contemporary romance, I’d highly recommend this one. Personally, I can’t wait to get to the rest of this series.

Monday Morsel: Daring to Dream

Monday Morsel is a little twist I put on the bookish meme Teaser Tuesdays hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. It works just like Teaser Tuesdays…except it’s on Monday. 🙂

Just do the following:

• Grab your current read
• Open to a random page
• Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
• BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
• Share the title & author, too, so that other Monday Morsel participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

“Josh watched her go, hating himself for being annoyed that she hadn’t been teary and wrecked. Hating himself more, much more, for the undeniable fact that he was, and always had been, in love with her.” Pg. 70 from Daring to Dream by Nora Roberts.
