Broody silent types are usually right up my alley and for the most part I liked this one all the way up until Nick pulls that dick move and pushes Freddie away. I applauded her comeback, I admired that she didn't let him have the last word, that she stood up for herself. Everything she said about settling for crumbs was true, and I needed to have a huge grovel scene from Nick to redeem him. Unfortunately he is forgive way too easily. That break up scene was so emotionally charged and the make up scene was just so tame that the ending felt muted. It does end with a HEA. In the beginning Nick is casually dating OW, they never sleep together and she's only in one scene and doesn't cause too much drama. Freddie also goes out on a date with OM but as friends. I would consider this safe. Considering Kate 3 ~ "Adorable and Safe" ~ Stars Kate is Freddie's younger sister. She falls for single dad Brody. Brody is father to six year old Jake and has been widowed for the last four years. Although normally I don't like the dead spouse trope, aside from some comments Brody makes about his past (all concerning the happiness and well being of his child) I didn't find this bothered me too much. Jake really stole the show for me. I don't know any six years this articulate but he was adorable and I was charmed by him. Kate follows in her sister's footsteps by setting out to seduce a man who doesn't willing want to be seduced. She is the pursuer in the relationship but Brody, although hesitant to start anything because of his past and because of Jake, didn't become that cliche H. Yes, he was cautious but in the end he and Kate worked it out. I liked this one much more. Although it wasn't as emotionally intense as WfN, their romance was much more believable and I loved that it was minus that humiliating scene/misunderstanding. That first proposal was the sweetest thing! Ends with a wedding scene that was also really sweet. Definitely safe. No OM/OW drama at all.

In Waiting for Nick, Freddie Kimball is a lady with a mission. Her mission is to become a composer with Nick LeBeck and to have him fall as madly in love with her as she has been since she was thirteen. She is moving into an apartment near Lower the Boom bar where Nick lives upstairs. Nick’s step-brother Zach Muldoon owns the bar. Freddie knows she has a battle on her hands as far as Nick falling in love with her. However, she has no doubts they can compose beautiful music together. Nick LeBeck is a loner. He lives above the bar so he can be close enough to close for his brother and not have to walk very far to get home. He sleeps until at least noon and then writes music during the afternoon and into the night unless he has to work. He is known for the many women he dates; but keeps them all at one or two dates and doesn’t let anyone get too close to him. Can he resist Freddie? Can he keep her at a distance? He knows very well she has had a crush on him but he has avoided her. Why is he avoiding her?

She has come home to a small town in West Virginia to set up a dance studio. She has given twenty years to dance and has made a name for herself. However, she thinks it is time she came home and fulfilled another dream- owning a dance studio. She hopes her family understands how she feels and is as proud of her as they have been. She has purchased a rundown building and plans to renovate the upstairs for her apartment and downstairs for her studio. At her Mother’s suggestion, she hires Brody O’Connell to do the renovation. Can she keep him at arm’s length? Brody O’Connell is a good contractor and taking on Kate’s job will keep his crew working during the generally slow season. He moved to this small town to raise his son, Jack after his wife’s death. He is definitely attracted to Kate but intends to keep his distance. Can he?

    Yes, I admit I like a good cheesy romance novel every once in while, especially after I read something serious and heavy. Particularly since I can usually whip through these in a day which gives me a true sense of accomplishment. But maybe this was too big a transition from serious to fluffy...or maybe I am completely unable to relate to cute, wealthy (but not the least bit snobby) 24 year olds who move to New York city and can afford antique persian rugs and one bedroom apartments, whose father Yes, I admit I like a good cheesy romance novel every once in while, especially after I read something serious and heavy.

But maybe this was too big a transition from serious to fluffy...or maybe I am completely unable to relate to cute, wealthy (but not the least bit snobby) 24 year olds who move to New York city and can afford antique persian rugs and one bedroom apartments, whose father sends over a brand new steinway grand piano which fits perfectly in that nook with the big bay window, and while she has no apparent formal education or previous job experience, is so talented as a lyricist that she is immediately tapped to work on the score for the next Broadway hit, starring the biggest Broadway star of the day, who just happens to be friends of the family...and oh yeah, her composer partner is the guy she's been in love with since she was a kid, only he doesn't realize it. And of course, he has a checkered past, which he can't possibly subject her to, Sigh, yeah. I was looking for candy, but this hurts my teeth. I did finish it in a day though, so there is that.

    2020 Two very cute, very sweet stories featuring ladies from the Stanislaski clan and their future husbands. I particularly love that Freddie and Nick end up getting together. It was great seeing her grow up from a young girl with a crush to a young woman who knew that Nick was still the man that she wanted. And I really enjoyed watching Kate fall in love with Brody and his little boy, Jack. It was all very precious and very sweet.

Nick really did need a kick in the pants. His still feeling inferior after ten years building his life from the crap of being in a gang, to upstanding and talented adult is semi understandable. I have to say I enjoyed how this all played out and though a bit cheesy, still enjoyable. Nice having the original adults playing parts. CONSIDERING KATE A wonderfully sweet read. Kate is doing most of the pursuing in this book but I loved the slow fall into love and how Brody’s son Jack stole the show with his proposal.

    After I got past the very privileged life of Frederica (staying at the Waldorf, shopping at Bergdorf's, etc.), it was a nice little beach read. Same for the second story. Sometimes you just need a happy ending--in this case, two!

    I truly enjoyed reading this novel that contained both WAITING FOR NICK and CONSIDERING KATE in one cover. Being a very methodical, detail-oriented reader, I have included my review of each novel separately below. I hope that those who will read this will enjoy them both, and they will be helpful for any Nora Roberts fans who might be considering the possibility of reading these novels in the future. WAITING FOR NICK: (3.5 stars) - For the most part I did enjoy reading this novel by Nora Roberts.

I hope that those who will read this will enjoy them both, and they will be helpful for any Nora Roberts fans who might be considering the possibility of reading these novels in the future. WAITING FOR NICK: (3.5 stars) - For the most part I did enjoy reading this novel by Nora Roberts. Because I have so thoroughly enjoyed reading The Stanislaskis: Those Wild Ukrainians series over the last month, I was very much looking forward to reading WAITING FOR NICK, the fifth novel included in this edgy, unique series. Each novel included in The Stanislaskis: Those Wild Ukrainians series; thus, I had high expectations for WAITING FOR NICK. I fully expected this novel to be quite phenomenal, indeed, since it was the novel in which Miss Frederica Kimball and Mr. Nicolas LeBeck were finally paired together, as adults. Because Nora Roberts had hinted at the adolescent crush that Freddie had felt for Nick within several of the previous novels in The Stanislaskis: The Wild Ukrainians series, I could not wait to see how their love story unfolded. But...I must confess that the expectations that I had built up for WAITING FOR NICK were not met. I was desperately underwhelmed and disappointed with so many details throughout the entire plot. First, the premise of WAITING FOR NICK neither captured my attention from the beginning nor held it until the end. Second, I was sorely unmotivated to read this novel at the same pace as I had the others, so it took me a lot longer to read WAITING FOR NICK than I would have liked. Third, the various twists and turns that Nora Roberts created for Nick and Freddie to take throughout the plot caused this novel to seem typical, expected, and terribly unimaginative. Fourth, the young man and woman that Nick and Freddie had become in WAITING FOR NICK both appeared to be flat and one-dimensional. Even though I am still very much a fan of Nora Roberts' romance novels -- and will remain so in the future -- I was saddened that WAITING FOR NICK truly lacked any beauty, excitement, or romance. I started this book and finished this book simply because it was part of a series; however, I was not pleased with it. It was mediocre, but I would not enthusiastically recommend WAITING FOR NICK to other readers. CONSIDERING KATE: (4.5 stars) - Thankfully, I thoroughly enjoyed reading this novel by Nora Roberts. Because I have also thoroughly enjoyed reading the entire series entitled The Stanislaskis: Those Wild Ukrainians, I was thrilled that CONSIDERING KATE, the sixth -- and final -- novel in this series ended well and happily. Most of all, though, I was absolutely thrilled about the fact that the premise and plot of CONSIDERING KATE was so much better and more entertaining than WAITING FOR NICK was. I wanted so terribly to enjoy that aforementioned novel since sweet Freddie Kimball was all grown up and pursing her own dreams; however, I was disappointed that WAITING FOR NICK did not reach the same caliber that the other novels included in the series had set and passed. Thankfully, Nora Roberts artfully designed the plot line of CONSIDERING KATE to skillfully mirror the the premise, details, and plot line of TAMING NATASHA, which was the novel in which the saga of the Stanislaski family began to unfold. I think that Nora Roberts was wise to end this bold, exciting, and passionate series very similarly to the way that she started it. ;-) First, the setting of TAMIMG NATASHA and CONSIDERING KATE was the same, Kate had decided to leave her dance career and the spotlight of New York behind in order to move back to her hometown, Shepardstown, West Virginia, and start her own business. Second, Miss Kate Stanislaski Kimball reminded me very much of her mother, and Mr. Body O'Connell seemed a good deal like her father. Third, the way in which Kate and Brody met for the first time -- in her mother's quaint toy store -- sentimentally reminded me of the endearing way that her parents had met each other years before. Forth, and most importantly of all, the role that little Jack O'Connell played through CONSIDERING KATE was the same role that Freddie Kimball played in TAMING NATASHA in order to bring Spencer Kimball and Natasha Stanislaski together as a couple and family. Based on these circumstances, CONSIDERING KATE was a sweet, charming, and heartwarming novel from beginning to end.

    More like a 3.5, but enjoyed enough to round up. I will be reviewing the stories separately. Chasing Nick This Story as a whole surprised me. Normally when I read romances I cringe. I don't find them adorable at all. This one however surprised me on different levels. A man wasn't actively chasing a woman to the point where I found it dangerous or abusive.

Yes, Nick found Kate attractive but tried to stay away from her because he thought he was a bad influence. And yes, I found his overprotective streak a bit much if not actually okay. Instead I found the girl chasing the guy. Brutally. But she knew when to back down and when to come swinging. Funny how when the girl chases how a guy normally would I find it cute instead of icky otherwise... And the two of them together??? My overly sentimental side is oozing with how much I adored them, okay? Okay (not a reference to TFIOS). So yeah, this one won me over and easily earned those lovely stars that I rarely give to the romances. Considering Kate This story is a whole other story from the first one. Immediately flirtatious. Automatic grabby hands because, as the characters pointed out "the other one's hot." But it really on my bad side when The main chick was all "I know that I want to do him, and that's healthy. But we connect on the important levels that matter. I love him" Girl, you barely know the dude, and unless parts were missing from my copy, you'd barely had five interactions with him. Don't sell lust as insta love. Please don't. I didn't buy it. Then it felt like something else was missing as Kate just slid so easily into his life, and his in hers. Because, wait? Did he ever get over the fact that he thought she was too good for him? That he wasn't good enough? Alone, this story would probably rate a one star. But dang it, that first story was just stinking cute. *Read what you will and hopefully enjoy*

    I'm giving these books (collectively) 3 stars because they were solidly written, but a little typical. I am a fan of Nora Roberts, but her novels often follow similar story arcs. This isn't necessarily bad, because her characters are often very well-written and you just get attached. These books just seemed overly typical. I would give "Waiting for Nick" two stars and "Considering Kate" 3 stars individually. "Waiting for Nick" was a pleasant story, but there wasn't anything special about it.

I knew from page one what was going to happen...and it was exactly as I expected. I also thought the relationship between Freddie and Nick was odd because of the family relationship (although I know they were not technically related). It was basically a couple hundred pages of them both being stubborn. "Considering Kate" was much more enjoyable to me because the characters were more dynamic and unique. The fact that the male lead, Brody, had a son added an extra element, and his son was an adorable and fun character. Similarly, though, the characters were overly stubborn, but it actually made more sense in this novel than in the previous one.

    Waiting for Nick gets a solid 3 stars only. Maybe I expected too much since Freddie's love was so obvious from the moment Nick was introduced in Rachel's story and I had to wait for it but I think it was more the execution. It didnt even gel right. The story was too easy and there should have been some serious struggles here. I dunno, I just wasnt happy with execution.

"Considering Kate" is a story about Kate returning to West Virginia as a successful ballerina setting up her own dance company and she falls in love with her carpenter Brody and his son Jack. I think Roberts made the character Kate a bit aggressive and maybe that was a popular theme in 90's romance genre- to show a woman's sexual equality to men?

    The first story, "Waiting for Nick", was another great story from Nora Roberts... "Considering Kate" went above and beyond my expectations! This easily could have been made into a 400+ page book, instead of a shorter story. The characters were easily lovable and the emotion that came through the pages was staggering in some parts. You'll want to read this if you're a fan of Nora Roberts, or like heartfelt stories. The first story, "Waiting for Nick", was another great story from Nora Roberts...

    Two sweet stories. Freddie's loved Nick forever, and as adults they bond over love of music. Kate leaves her life as a dancer to settled down and start a dance school of her own. Single dad Brody protects his heart as much as his son. Kate and Brody bond over the construction of her dance school. Two sweet stories.

    I didn't care for "Waiting for Nick" too much, but I really enjoyed "Considering Kate"--I loved Jack and the ballet/carpentry side was a new and interesting twist. Still not as good as The Stanislaskis: Rachel & Alex though.

    I love how different characters are linked from different stories (in this case, the O'Hurleys and Davidov). However, these didn't entirely feel like Nora Roberts, and didn't entirely feel like a Stanislaskis story, but they were so wonderful anyways. I was always cheering for Freddie and Kate, and also half in love with Nick and Jack and Brody.

    i know Nora Roberts can be slightly simple to read at times but i did like these two stories. simple yet i actually liked the people and cared about them. while it wasn't a earth shatteringly great book it was enjoyable! i know Nora Roberts can be slightly simple to read at times but i did like these two stories. simple yet i actually liked the people and cared about them. while it wasn't a earth shatteringly great book it was enjoyable!

    Even though I was really looking forward to the first story to see what happened between Freddie and Nick, I enjoyed the second story more. The characters were stronger and better developed, I thought and Jack was a joy.

    Well this was a quick and fun read. I'm just addicted to a well written romance. It's a part of a series and it's been sitting on my shelf for an age. Now I want to go back and find the other books in the series and read more about this family. Well this was a quick and fun read. I'm just addicted to a well written romance.
