4 StarsThis was solidFast pacedSexyFunAnd ldSeriously though there are what Introduccion a la Etica Cristiana only 40 thousand books in the series after thisne LolRegardless I see why I have not a damn thing to add to the multitude Death Goddess Dance (The Mythos War, of reviewsn this and I look forward to the next Ruth one I am a DEVOTED fanf this series and completely not Ludell objective about it in any way Take this as a five star reviewf the entire series And yup I ve read all 50 entries if that sounds like a lot dive in and you ll soon find yourself reaching the end and desperate for another entry in the series Reviewed by Rabid Reads35 starsFor those f you who don t already know JD Robb is an alternate pen name for Nora Roberts I nly read my first Nora Roberts book about a year ago and was to put it mildly pleasantly surprised I d always assumed that Roberts wrote cornball Walmart paperback romances for your grandmother and when I saw a new book with Witch in the title I figured she had jumped The Longest Raid of the Civil War on the paranormal train but was curious enough to check itutIt was kind A Night in the Snow; or A Struggle for Life of amazingAnd with about 30 secondsf research I discovered that rather than jumping The Diary of Annas Submission on the paranormal train it was likely that Roberts could be held responsible for making books with paranormal elements marketable in the first place assumptions make you look stoopid FYII really liked this book BUT The too forceful borderline abusive love interest whose aggression is attributed to his sheer maleness that I was expecting in my first Roberts book bc 70s 90s bodice rippers you stole from your grandma s stash when you were a teenager Well he was hidingut here all alongRoarke Nolastname rolls eyes is a smoking hot Irish self made bazillionaire Say that three times fast Go ahead Do it He s also a textbook example The Huffin Puff Express of a male with abusive tendencies I know this for FACT bc I volunteered at a battered women s shelter while I was in college and before a place like that will turn you loose in the facility they educate you Basedn that education Roarke is Silk And Steel one giant Red Flag he has zero respect for personal space he makes unilateral decisions about things any rational person understands are not decisions to be made unilaterally he has fitsf temper that involve grabbing shoving and shaking Red flags Red flags everywhere And maybe that s the difference between a book written a couple The Food Stamp Gourmet of years ago and a book written a couple decades ago Bc NAKED IN DEATH was written nearly twenty years ago BUT it takes place in thenly slightly distant future 2058 I think So there s this sometimes interestingsometimes uncomfortable combination f modernfuture ideals and innovations coupled with surprisingly ld fashioned tropesLike how Learning Our Way our heroine Eve Dallas is as hard core and strong a female character as I d expect to find in any recently published SFFr UF novel who lives in a world with legalized prostitution gov t regulated and taxed naturally but who also falls prey to Red Flag bc hot DAMNNo seriously Hot DAMNI fell prey too Like completely And part Mondomanila of the reason for that is bc Roberts does such a good jobf developing Eve and Roarke that you understand why he s a Red Flag but know that he d never actually cross that line even though your brain and statistics tell you So Long at the Fair otherwise They re both damaged victimsf horrific childhoods who were made stronger in the crucible rather than broken They understand each The Transformers other better than anyone else ever could For real You can see it feel itEve is thene woman who can change Roarke s playboy emotional detachment and the fact that she has no intention The Unquiet Dead (Rachel Getty Esa Khattak, of doing sonly makes it plausibleAnd that kind The Case of the Savage Statue (The Three Investigators: Find Your Fate Mysteries, of masterful manipulation is what makes thether stuff easier to swallowBc there is lots Only One Year ofther stuff LOTS All f the secondaries are flat stock characters Instalust which is believable crosses the line into instalove which is not Eve s a cop is a reformed criminal mastermind I could put together
a very strongvery strong Roarke is the main inspiration for Christian Grey I considered writing a nontraditional review n that vein but didn t have the patience to follow through And there s CORN Cheesy 90s I m too sexy for my shirt corn I thought this vintage would suit you What it lacks in subtlety He turned back Celtic Mysteries in New England offering her a glass It makes up for in sensuality Ugh Also if you are particularly sensitive to sexual violation especially the sexual violationf children NAKED IN DEATH is not for you I say particularly bc pretty much everyone finds the notion upsetting but as far as this kind Unabomber of thing goes it s not too bad There isnly Flipping Cars - How To Make Money Buying And Selling Cars for Profit one scene that I would label as graphic and it takes place in the contextf an adult remembering past abuse so if you aren t particularly sensitive it s not any unpleasant than any You Look Like Something Blooming other mysterythriller with psychosr whack jobs doing psychowhack job things There are Historical Thinking other things as well but you get the idea Not that it matters bc I LOVED it If I was making a purely emotional decision about this book I would be giving it at least four stars Instead I m forcing myself to be rational bc the handfulf times I ve gone with my gut it s come back to haunt me It s worth mentioning that I m nearly finished with 6 after starting the series four and half days ago and that speaks for itself but I can also say that while IN DEATH remains a series with flaws there are marked improvements especially in the area Turning Point of secondary characters SO Definitely worth a shot in my humblepinion If you re intimidated by sci fi this is just sci fi enough to have interesting gadgets and speculative changes in federal laws like the aforementioned legalized prostitution ALSO if you re into audiobooks definitely definitely worth a try especially if you can pick them up from your library and I d imagine most would have them considering how popular and long running this series is I m notoriously anti audiobook bc ADD but I started listening to NAKED IN DEATH while roadtripping and it easily held my attention bc just that good and I was enjoying it up until too swift Inside Gods Arms Season 1 (Yaoi Manga) of a turn into RomancelandiaThe popularityf Naked in Death is completely understandable to me The attraction here is the same as in the most Turning point of urban fantasy IMO Mystery solving some world building in this case futuristic insteadf paranormal it all is "only background noise What you are actually anticipating is the heroine s hookup with some handsome hunk That s what "background noise What you are actually anticipating is the heroine s hookup with some handsome hunk That s what read urban fantasy for anyway And the hunk here is something special 1 he is drowning in money 2 super hot 3 has morals 4 buys the heroine stuff 5 feeds her 6 he adores everything about the heroine from the get go 7 8 9 and 10 HE SPEAKS WITH AN IRISH ACCENT What s not to like rightUnfortunately Roarke never managed to work his magic الكتاب الممنوع on me I thought he was controlling patronizing stalkerish even always forcing Eveut Extreme Devotion of her comfort zone and himselfn her in that signature way I am going to make you have the most intense Acid Sky orgasm you ve ever had no matter if you want itr not because I know what you need better than you Plus as I ve noted above the switch from mystery to romance was too early in the book uarter in second meeting and already her small firm breast weighed gloriously in his palm and he wanted to forget the patience and control he d taught himself to live by and just ravage This bodice ripperish language tota.
