Nora Roberts Reading Challenge Update

I've read six books towards this challenge this year; three new books (Celebrity in Death, The Witness, and The Last Boyfriend), and three old books (The Art of Deception, Impulse, and Temptation).

I just recently finished Impulse and Temptation in a 2-in-1 book called Windfall.

Windfall: Impulse\TemptationWindfall: Impulse\Temptation by Nora Roberts
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Impulse had the feel of a Harlequin romance novel.  It should be titled something like The Greek Billionaire's Summer Fling. I don't know, it just felt like that kind of story.  I liked Rebecca and Stephen but at a few different points I wanted to hit Rebecca.  I felt like if she was so smart she should have been able to put a few more things together and realize that Stephen was more than what she believed him to be, but *shrug* such is the case with romances.

I liked Temptation a little bit more.  Eden and Chase were really great.  These two felt more like the Nora Robert's characters that I love.  They fight each other and themselves before finally admitting they care for each other. I prefer a battle to the female running away. I really like that Eden goes full steam ahead in her new life and embraces the challenges of working/running a summer camp.
