You know you've read a 5 star book when you can't stop thinking about the characters and their story days after you've read the book. Excellent read.

This is my second favorite NR book (Honest Illusions is first!). It is a touching story and an easy read. I like how the story feels real, it's not one of those love stories where the couple fall madly in love on day one and get engaged on day two. I was hooked right from the start. For some reason the story made me think of the movie Fool's Gold with Kate Hundson, so if you like that movie you will like this book. The main character Matthew, is truly amazing -- I wish he was real!

I could not get enough of this book. It took me two days and I was done. Sadly I wish I could know more of Tate and Matthew's story. Reading a Nora Roberts book doesn't keep you on the outside of the pages. Somehow you get drawn into each and everything that happens. You feel like you are apart of the story. You can feel every touch, hear every word, and even smell the air around you. Nora Roberts is an author like no other.

One of my all time favoite books! It's a story that I go back to read over and over again. I first read it in my early 20's and still love it in my now late 30's.

I have just began reading Nora Roberts again. I started with Three Fates and didn't like but all of the rest of her books I have read have been excellant. They keep you interested and don't want to put down.

a great book to dive into on a rainy day or night. A quick read, rather predictable, but fun with the diving, treasure hunt, crazed billionaire, and the unexplainable psychic forces

I enjoy Nora Roberts very much. This book was very suspenseful and romantic. It had a great plot and was a great book to read. Any book that Nora Roberts writes is good.

This was an exceptional story. I'm totally a Nora fan, and to date, this was the best book i've read. Each character has the same desire and it brings them together to the ultimate ending. The ending of this book was by far the best of any book i've ever read, because the bad guy gets what he deserves.

I always love a story when the characters have a history rather than meet each other one day then the very next day are swearing their undying love.

i'm a senior in highschool and i have been reading nora roberts for about 3 years now, and i have ALOT of her books. it only took me a day to read since i couldnt put it down! This book and Honest Illusions are my top favorites. i probably read this book more than 10 times. and everytime i read it its still good! i would recommend this book to anybody!

I really enjoyed the story of the quest to find Angelique's Curse. I felt like I really got to know each character in the story and I liked them all. I absolutely fell in love with Matthew. He did very well despite all of the struggles in his life. There were a couple of twists that I didn't see coming, which kept it interesting. I was a little disappointed in the ending though. Just when it seemed like everything was settled and Matthew and Tate would live happily ever after, there was another twist. I thought it was a little unrealistic and would have preferred that it ended a different way. I don't want to say any more as not to ruin it for those who have not read it. Overall I did enjoy it and definately recommend it.

Reef is my absolute FAVORITE book of all! I've been reading Nora Roberts novels since freshman year of high school. I'm starting my junior year in college next month, and out of all the books I've read from Nora Roberts, this one takes the cake. It hooks you in from the first page all the way until the last. I could not put this book down. The first time i read 'Reef' I finished the entire book in 2 days because it was so good and so addicting.
