Rising Tides. Nora Roberts.

Rising Tides
Nora Roberts.

Felt I had to read this due to Roberts’ tremendous popularity. After consultation with Diana, I’ve learned that this follows the basic pattern of romances: two people feel undeniable and irresistable attraction, but against the better judgment of at least one of them. Fate throws them together and they’re quite happy for a while, but then break up. Of course, in the end they get married.

This one involves a guy who was sexually molested (sold to men by his prostitute mother) and now doesn’t want to have kids of his own: he does not want to pass on his evil mother’s genes. The rest is pretty boring, though there’s nothing actually bad about the book. It’s inoffensive, but by no means am I inspired to read everything she’s written.
