Shelves: fiction-for-women , romance , fiction , christmas I love Nora Roberts. The first story is classic Roberts. Flawed characters, a sense of betrayal, Alpha male, unassuming female, family conflict, plot twist, love at first sight, and an eventual happy ending. She does it well. Her characters are the only things that really set the stories apart and you know what?
She sells books for a reason. Now enough about Roberts. The first story "First Impressions" is about Vance and Shane to complete opposites. Vance is running from his life and his past mistakes and trying to lay low - why? So in the little town that he settles in, he hopes for anonymity and just pure honest work.
Meet Shane. Transparent, trusting but not naive , stubborn, fiery and determined to make her dreams come true. She loves Vance almost immediately and while it takes a little while for Vance to hop on the love boat, we can see why.
There is arguing, short tempers, a shove or two not in a scary domestic violence way and sweet patience. Of course there were a few unbelievable phrases, but come on people, this is a romance novel! Dangerous in all the right ways. Plus, did I mention, handsome and rich? I say skip this one if you can unless you want to be amused along with the Alpha Male strong-arming.
