    Alicia (is beyond tired of your *ish)

    Risky Business This was a decent story. While the plot was predictable and easily resolved (with a little feel-good twist up at the end), it allowed for complex characters with complex motivations. Jonas fancied himself 'not a nice guy' but really he was. His behavior at the beginning wasn't all that bad (standoffish, cold, willing to do whatever is necessary–including using Liz–to find his brother's killer) and really all came from his profound grief. Liz was a good, strong character. I think sh Risky Business This was a decent story.

Jonas fancied himself 'not a nice guy' but really he was. His behavior at the beginning wasn't all that bad (standoffish, cold, willing to do whatever is necessary–including using Liz–to find his brother's killer) and really all came from his profound grief. Liz was a good, strong character. I think she let what happened to her at 18 control too much of her life (and kind of had an overreaction in the first place) but I like the determination it gave her. I also really liked when she'd shoot down things Jonas was telling her to do with good points. They had some sweet, romantic scenes together that were nice to read. Though, of course, they fall in insta-love. I also like how sweetly protective Jonas became of Liz (not psycho overprotective). 3 stars. Storm Warning This story had a lot of potential when it started. I really liked the fast friendship between the Heroine, Autumn, and movie-star Julia Bond. It was sweet. The pacing of this story was slow and kind of off. It took forever to really get anywhere and then kind of tumbled together. The Hero, Lucas, started off as a jerk for what he did to Autumn three years prior. However, she'd hold her own (mostly) when she went up against him. Even getting in some good, and well deserved digs. Then, because she keeps rebuffing him pretty nicely, he quite clearly threatens to rape her if she keeps pushing him. She runs from him but doesn't think of it that way, she's more afraid of her feelings. But then literally two freaking pages later someone destroys her camera and she says, "The mutilation was rape." The first time that word is used and THAT'S why? Are you kidding me? RAGE. Cut to later on in the book and she does, in fact, (view spoiler)[push him too far and so he makes good on his threat. He throws her down on the bed, forcibly kissing and pawing at her and while she's fighting tells her that it's happening no matter how much she kicks and bites. I'm ready to throw the book across the room and then set it the fuck on fire because it was looking like nothing was going to stop it. However, she starts crying. NOT because she's about to be raped but because if they have sex she won't be able to hide how much she still loves him. I...are you...what in the fuck?? He sees her tears and assumes it's because of what he's doing to her. He stops and promises he won't touch her like that again. His excuse later is so fucking stupid I wanted to stab him in the head (he has missed her so much since he threw her out of his life that he has been a wreck and now being so close to her he couldn't control himself and was constantly doing the wrong thing). The only shred of a positive I have to say for his character is at the end of the book when he explains himself he does admit very clearly and with the actual word that he "nearly raped [her]". At least he actually understands what he did and the severity of it, even if she doesn't and doesn't call him on it. The worst is maybe only a page after he says those words he askes and she agrees to marry him. MARRY HIM. I CANNOT. (hide spoiler)] What in the bloody hell '80s Romance Novels? Honestly what some people find acceptable just blows my mind. Autumn proved to be even more stupid though. It took her forever (I mean like the entire book) for her to realize that he was at the inn in the first place because of her. (That's not a spoiler, it seriously only takes like two seconds of deductive reasoning to figure it out.) She couldn't tell when she was in danger, when to keep her mouth shut, or really any basic sense of self-preservation ((view spoiler)[She almost gets killed at the end because she pulls stupid move after stupid move. (hide spoiler)] ). Then she decides, even with everything Lucas done and said to (view spoiler)[help him get away with the murder she thinks he's committed because she's just so in love with him still (hide spoiler)] . IDIOT. The premise of the mystery was pretty ridiculous. Not particularly worth suffering through all that other B.S. to get to the end. 1 star. *The "male-lead-who-needs-a-junk-punch" and "pathetic-and-or-stupid-female-lead" tags were for this book only. The Welcoming I really enjoyed this one. It was a great palate cleanser after the second book. I really liked the characters. Roman DeWinter was the sweetest man. Contrary to what he thought of himself there wasn't an ounce of roughness, cruelty, or anything horrible about him. He was an alpha male that treated the people around him and his love interest with care and respect. The only times he got controlling/demanding with Charity I actually thought were nice because she was overworking herself and being blasé with her health. Charity Ford was smart and very strong. She was a sweet woman, it's no wonder everyone loved her. But she wouldn't take anyone's shit either. She could be ridiculous about doing what she needed to do if it meant slowing down or relinquishing control, but that was by virtue of the fact that she was dedicated to the inn and her grandfather's legacy. Roman didn't think he could be romantic but once he got going he seemed to have a lot of it in him. They had such loving, romantic scenes. It was like a big puffy heart over them. I really only have two complaints. First, even though there are small clues it took forever to lay out the story – the exact reason for Roman being at the inn. Meanwhile, their attraction to each other was almost a constant in the first part of the narrative. Second, insta-everything. She was in love in something like two days, he followed soon after. Then, (view spoiler)[once he was off it was like a bullet leaving the gun. Suddenly they were engaged and getting married in two weeks. This was all after a week! (hide spoiler)] It was really difficult to buy into. Once Roman's purpose was laid out there wasn't a mystery, but the end had decent suspense. I liked the way it all played out. Even though Charity did pull a boneheaded move, even if it was with a pure heart of concern for someone else. 3.5 stars.

    Risky Business was a 2 stars, Storm Warning was a -1 and The Welcoming was a 1 so the average rating was 1. I will probably never read another Nora Roberts.

    I love the way Nora Roberts creates her heroes in that feel like you know them. Her books however seem to follow the same pace, same formula, same out there heroines. It's like she has a database of heroines and she simply changes their occupations and it's always something off the wall, like a trapeze artist or boat company owner or yep Wedding cake maker. The romance is always delicious, the chemistry always divine, but three books of Nora later and I'm sated. Won't be reading anymore.

There is almost a rape/forced submission scene, which I wouldn't have even noticed except for reading "Beyond Heaving Bosoms". The Welcoming: My favourite of the three. Set in San Juan Islands, mystery involves smuggling Canadian conterfeit money into states. Really like the hero in this one...reluctant to love, but once does, makes a good job of it.

    Finally was able to finish these stories. I read others reviews before reading, which is something I don't usually do. I enjoyed all three of these. They were more short stories, rather than the normal stories. But still enjoyed. Finally was able to finish these stories. I read others reviews before reading, which is something I don't usually do.

Compared to some of her other early works this was very readable. The suspense was pretty good, as the Hero and the heroine try to work out who killed the Hero's twin brother, Jerry.

Compared to some of her other early works this was very readable. The suspense was pretty good, as the Hero and the heroine try to work out who killed the Hero's twin brother, Jerry. I didn't suspect the bad guy until right before the reveal. The Hero was not my favorite - Jonas was something of a selfish ass coming in planning to use the heroine however he had to in order to get his revenge for his brother's murder. He just inserts himself into her life, bosses her around, demands she take him places (for her own safety supposedly) and he comes across for much of the book as cold and unfeeling. So imagine my surprise when after days of the hero being an ass the heroine realizes she's falling in love with him. Why? Later in the book he kinda becomes a different character... And yes, even I think he's too pushy/creepy there at the end. (view spoiler)[ He leaves per the heroine's request but goes off to woo the heroine's 10 year old daughter, admitting that the way to get to the heroine is through her daughter. What kind of grandparents let a strange man take their granddaughter to the zoo? Then he brooks no argument when he says they will marry, puts the ring onto her finger and tells her to get used to the idea. Not very romantic. (hide spoiler)] The heroine was even more annoying. Set aside by her daughter's father and left to have her baby alone, Liz is basically an emotional coward who hides and runs from her feelings and stubbornly insists on being independent in everything - despite times when it would make sense to ask for help. She frustrated me more than she earned my sympathy. And Nora Roberts sucks at writing kids. Faith, who we meet briefly at the end of the book is supposed to be nearly 11 years old. Yet when we meet her, she's just lost two teeth in an obvious location revealed by her smile (at her age she should be losing molars..). But that's kind of nitpicky. It's when they get around to her dialogue - she speaks in simple baby sentences, talks about how she tried to run really fast in her new sneakers, fell down and skinned her knee and didn't cry. She leaps into Jonas's arms when he comes to visit. I'm telling you, I know kids this age and they're a touch more mature. She's written like a six-year-old...not a girl on the verge of adolescence. Other than the characters, the book was pretty good. Storm Warning - 3/5 - So normally I get really frustrated at Nora Roberts early stuff where she has only the heroine's POV and the hero is a complete asshole - but let me tell you that it worked so well here! And not because it made a better romance. But it absolutely made the mystery! Because we don't get to see any other POV we have absolutely no idea who the villain might be. And because the hero is an absolute jackass, we are actually tempted to believe that it's him! Awesome! Where this story loses its stars is in the romance. Years ago, Lucas, the hero, tossed aside the heroine like she was some cheap trash or something. He destroyed her. And he doesn't seem to be much nicer of a guy...calling her malleable and what not. Not once in this whole book does he kiss her in tenderness - only in anger. He very nearly rapes her and only stops when she's in tears. This guy is so not romantic. And I'll tell you what really made me mad... (view spoiler)[ He admits how much he loves her and always has, even though he hasn't once shown her any real kindness so far. He tells her that he hurt her so much and rejected her because of how much he was coming to love her. What? That makes no sense! If you're afraid of your feelings you say, "let's take a break" you don't say "Get the F**k out of my life forever!" Then of course, he realizes what he just threw away and thinks it'll be a piece of cake to get her back. This guy is seriously deluded and doing relationships wrong. (hide spoiler)] So yeah, this really flops as a romance because I wanted the heroine to end up alone...confident, healed and alone. The Welcoming - 3/5 - This is a pretty decent little book - nothing earth shattering or spectacular but it kept me entertained and I enjoyed reading it. The story focuses on FBI Agent Roman DeWinter who has come to Charity's inn on the Orcas Islands to investigate something...only he's undercover, since Charity is also under suspicion. So he poses as a handyman and as surly as Roman is, Charity starts falling in love with him. What I enjoyed about Roman though is that, despite his gruff and sometimes rude behavior, once he realizes he's in love, he embraces it. There was a great deal of foreshadowing regarding the angst potential in this relationship. Charity ended up having to fire one of her employees for calling in sick when she wasn't, and Charity kept crying about how upset she was that her employee LIED to her. Well, that says it right there. Charity is going to have a pisser of a conniption when she finds out Roman is lying...I'm surprised he didn't see it coming to that degree. And she was really frustrating about it, refusing to use any logic or common sense when looking at it. (view spoiler)[ She was angry because he supposedly played her for a fool and pretended to fall in love with her when he really didn't - what reason would he have to lie to her that way? He could have just pretended to be her friend...he didn't have to take it all the way to a marriage proposal. By that time he already had her trust and cooperation. (hide spoiler)] So she was beyond irrational and it frustrated me. There were other times when her behavior was somewhat aggravating too, but it by no means ruined the story for me. Overall, it was a fun read.

    These are 3 different stories combined into one book. Risky Business is pretty good; the underwater scenes are rather nifty. The middle story (Storm Warning) was very reminiscent of a book I'd read, Wildfire at Midnight, by Mary Stewart, so it was sort of funny to read it and see where the two stories were the same and see where they were vastly different.

    I think the reason I most enjoyed reading this is that it pointed out the evolution in Nora Roberts writing career. This is an early work and even if I hadn't known that, I would think so anyway because the writing is ....... just not as full-bodied as I'm used to getting from Nora. Still an excellent read but more, well...PG rather that R rating. Maybe that's the best way to describe it. But I'll read anything Nora Roberts/JD Robb writes, absolutely!

Also, the romance in "Risky Business" and especially "Storm Warning" was just really off, with two thoroughly unsatisfying male leads. Lucas in "Storm Warning" is just an absolute jerk and comes close to raping Autumn at one point, and I didn't find that romantic at all. Roberts slightly redeems herself with the last story, "The Welcoming," which had just a really sweet cast of characters and a touch of humor in it that the others were lacking. However, it still was just too short to be really fulfilling and do the storyline justice; I don't know why Roberts does these little short vignettes when they have enough storyline and meat to be full tales. Borrow it for "The Welcoming," but certainly don't spend money on this one--not up to Roberts' usual standards. I recommend Blue Smoke or the O'Hurley series (Born O'Hurley) and O'Hurley's Return) for the best of Nora Roberts.

    Risky Business- I had trouble getting into this story at first and overall, I was not impressed with it. It could just be that I am not interested in reading stories involving drugs. However, the romance Roberts created was very nice and heart warming. The passion between Liz and Jonas was enjoyable to read while it unfolded and Jonas's determination and persistence to show Liz he was genuine was lovely.

The way he behaved scared me- he was very violent, rough, and demanding. I don't know what type of woman would be attracted by this behavior. It seemed that at any moment he could snap and hurt Autumn. The Welcoming- I enjoyed this story and the romance between Roman and Charity. This was probably the best story out of the three. With all the stories in this compilation, I feel Nora Roberts ended them all so abruptly. Overall, I did not enjoy this book. I think reading three similar stories by the same author was just too much.

    Another three books from the 1980's, these deal with murder and suspense. Nora Roberts crafts a good story in each. The first, Risky Business, is set with scuba diving in the background. It's the third book I've read where she uses it, but the first where it rings true. The equipment checks, the shark baton, the description of underwater wildlife, all bring back past underwater adventures in my own life.

If I were Autumn, I would never have anything to do with Lucas again. The last book, The Welcoming, is set in the San Juans on Orcas Island, somewhere I have also been, although I can't say I recognized it as well. It is not the Orcas I have seen, but the setting was not the main thrust of the book, so that seems reasonable. The story line was good, and the main characters, Roman and Charity, if not loveable, are easy to get involved with.

    These are a few of her older stories and it shows. The first story, Risky Business, was ok, but far-fetched on the romantic and crime aspect. The second story, Storm Warning, was kind of confusing and annoying. I liked the lead female character but the romance (or lust) between all of the characters was odd an off-putting. It was easy to figure out the bad guy early on. I liked the setting and it had potential to be good, but it was like a bad production of the game Clue.

I liked the setting and the supporting characters, but again, a little far-fetched on the romance.

    Dangerous contains three of Roberts earlier novels: Risky Buisness, Storm Warning, and The Welcoming. Although Risky Buisness was good, I could not get into the other two stories; therefore the low rating. Normally a Roberts fan, I was suprised to find I did not like the other stories in this collection. I don't mean to imply that they were bad (Roberts can not write anything bad in my opinion), I just could not get into them. Perhaps it was the suspense aspect and/or the setting of the stories. Dangerous contains three of Roberts earlier novels: Risky Buisness, Storm Warning, and The Welcoming. Although Risky Buisness was good, I could not get into the other two stories; therefore the low rating.

    This is actually a trio of Nora Roberts' books in one volume. The three stories are good for casual reading that doesn't make you work hard. I read it while sick in bed, so it served my purpose. If I were giving each story a rating I would give Risky Business and Storm Warning three stars and The Welcoming would get four stars. The Welcoming had well developed and memorable characters. Not only were the main characters fleshed out well, but the other minor characters were also interesting. This is actually a trio of Nora Roberts' books in one volume.

    I give the first story 1 star...I just did not like anything about the story. Now I give both Storm Warning and The Welcoming 3.5 stars. I loved those stories. The characters were very likable and the plots were perfect for a nice quick read. I also really loved the homey inn feeling that the last two stories evoked.

    I lost myself in the first story and am currently reading the second. I will update my rating when I'm finished with the book. With that said, I love this book. I read the first story in a day. I couldn't put it down. I lost myself in the first story and am currently reading the second. I will update my rating when I'm finished with the book. With that said, I love this book.

    I like when they started publishing these 3 in 1. I don't have to wait for the short little books. This trilogy was a fast read. Classic Ms. Roberts with good dialog and lovely romance. I like her characters. They are such likeable people. I like when they started publishing these 3 in 1. I don't have to wait for the short little books. This trilogy was a fast read.
