    Great 1st time Novel

    Since I now own a nook, I tend to purchase my e-books based on the rating and other customer reviews. What intriged me about this this novel was the arthurs' name "Kenneth" I said to myself what does a guy know about romance novels. Well Mr. Rosenberg I really enjoyed this story about Nick and Katherine. There were some errors but this book kept me turning the pages and I look forward to reading future books from you

    Don't miss this one!

    My thoughts:
    This book is wonderfully written! Insightful and refreshing! A story of self discovery and the search for what is most important in life!
    This is the first true romance that I can remember reading that the author was a man, where I opened the book knowing that the writer was a man and I wondered about perspective and voice. I was impressed. He has shown a fantastic grasp of the intricacies of the emotions of both men and women. Kenneth Rosenberg has created characters that you can believe in. He has cast them into a world where money is power (sound familiar?) and the wants and desires of some are disregarded.
    The characters are realistic and easy to invest yourself into. The relationships portrayed are lifelike for the characters both when they are young and as they grow older.
    The story comes down to the choices between what you really want and what you are willing to fight for versus what is expected or desired by those in positions of power and wealth.
    The characters drive the story and keep you turning the pages, but the story itself keeps you holding your breath and hoping.
    Of all the supporting characters, Byron stands out the most for me. I think the friendship that he and Kate build is wonderful. I was thrilled when he throws away "the napkin" (you'll have to read it for details!). This action is him making what I believe to be one of the most powerful statements in the book; that he is no sell out and that honor and principles come before money!
    I loved Kate, the beautiful and successful architect making it on her own. Nick, what can you say about Nick...spoiled, rich, entitled, gorgeous, expecting. Of course these are what you see on the outside. On the inside they are both sad, unfulfilled, still hoping, still searching, still waiting. Truly worth a read! Don't miss out.

    No Cure

    (from Murphy's Library - 3 and a half rating)

    Katherine Spencer is an architect living her prime in New York City. She lives for work, and she has no problem at all with that-although Amanda, her best friend, keeps trying to drag her out to meet new guys. Katherine has never got over her first love, though, a guy she met when she was 16.

    Nick, 17, is the son of billionaires, and meets Katherine when she is spending summer vacations in a small town in Connecticut with her parents and working at an ice cream place. He goes every single day to the buy ice cream, just to see Katherine. However, once summer is over, both of them have to go back to their lives in New York. He promises he's going to write her-every day, he says, despite his mother's attempts to separate them-, but his letters has never came.

    Twelve years later, Nick shows up at Katherine's office with a professional offer: he wants her to design his new house, no one else. She is intrigued-and freaking out. Why is he back? Why now? She doesn't design houses-she's more into commercial buildings-, but he's persuasive and she knows she's going to regret herself for the rest of her life if she says no. Through the chapters, we get to see how Katherine and Nick met, how their relationship developed, and how that affected Katherine's life-and, well, later on the book, how it did affect Nick.

    Who have never had a love in your life that took you a while to get over? Let me tell you this, I saw myself on Katherine-on a scary way, because I lived something pretty similar of what she lives in No Cure for the Broken Hearted. My first love came back to my life years later-not 12, but a number close to this-, and I had no idea what he wanted. Let's just say our story did not end up like Katherine's and Nick's. However, I probably wouldn't fall in love with Nick. I missed something about him-a spark, something that would make me want to know more about him, more than is on the book, more than the stereotypical son of wealthy and reckless parents. And, oh, I'd beat the crap out of Nick's mom if I were Katherine LOL

    When Rosenberg contacted us asking if we would be interested on reviewing his book, I had to take a deep breath and challenge myself to read it-because of my own story. I'm glad I did accept reading it, though! No Cure for the Broken Hearted is a well written book and it's about love-but more than that, it's about personal growth.

    Curl up by the fire!

    This is the perfect book to curl up with on a cold evening, or to take along on your next beach vacation.

    It's highly entertaining, has a great plot and the author keeps the pages turning. I was impressed by Kenneth Rosenberg's first novel, and hope to see more from him.

    It's a book to carry you away on a romp of fantasy and romance.

    Watch your back, Nicholas Sparks!

    4.5/5.0 but considering this is a debut in romance, totally worth the bump!

    This story catches the reader from the first page. A successful woman who never completely got over her first (teenage) love is relatable to almost every woman on the planet. The question of "what would I do if that crush suddenly appeared at my door?" is not only intriguing but just plain fun to contemplate as one follows Katherine, the heroine, down that road. Given the fact that her summer crush was also a billionaire's son just makes it that much juicier! As the couple wind their way through all the hurt, insecurities and obstacles and sort out what that long lost love means, we get to participate in a truly enjoyable ride!

    My only hesitations were in the believability of a highly successful architect who had worked her way up the corporate ladder to the point of wide recognition being so wishy-washy and the somewhat cliche ending. Otherwise, 5 star all the way.

    *And, it's CLEAN!!!*
