Another book in the beloved Stanislaskis series from #1 New York Times bestselling author Nora Roberts.

Frederica Kimball has three goals now that she’s moved to New York City: find her own place, become a Broadway lyricist and get Nick LeBeck to fall desperately in love with her. Though Nick has always treated Freddie like a little sister, he can't help but notice the strong, passionate and head—to—toe—gorgeous woman now standing in her place. Perhaps everything he's ever wanted is closer than he could have imagined…

This is an old book, with a new cover and re-released. I hate it when they do that! You get a few pages in and realize that you've read it already--money down the drain. Irritating.

This author will have the "NR" logo on the front cover if it is a new publishing (usually located on the upper right hand corner). Without this logo, you can know it is a re-issue!

Always wonderful,what more can I say. I really enjoyed it. Nick from Falling for Rachel, from book 3 in the Stanislaskis series, is now all grown up and seeing him and Freddi Kimball coming together was all delightful. If you love Nora Robertrs you will like this book.

This was a very good book. I enjoyed the plot - it held my interest all the way through. I am a fan of Nora Roberts and this was right up there within the realm of her style of writing. Good Characters, and heart twisting moments. I loved it. Five Stars! I also purchased THE CHATEAU by CD SWANSON...I discovered this book through friend's recommendations, and in order to get free shipping. I was NOT DISAPPOINTED! I LOVED IT!!!!!!! It was fast moving, an easy enjoyable read. The characters were likeable, and there were the usual villians...But overall, twists and turns and surprises galore. Great moments of suspense and heart pulling moments. FIVE STARS!!!! Highly recommentd both books!

This is a romance novel and very well done. Nora Roberts is one of my favorite authors and she always is good reading. I would recommend her books to any one who likes romance, suspence, and some history intwined in the plot .

The premise for this book looked very interesting, but the delivery failed. I guess I expected something different, another approach by Fred maybe. My vision of Nick after seeing the book cover along with the short summary was way off his character. There were a lot of family members involved in the story; they provided a few laughs and made the story interesting. I wanted the novel about the family instead of the romance between Nick and Freddie. I didn't get caught up in the romantic tension and frustration, maybe because the reasons why Freddie fell in love with Nick were never fully developed. It was mentioned as a childhood crush that didn't go away, his good qualities listed but never expanded on, nor no memories that built up to their relationship currently. So, Freddie came on too strong without a fully developed background which didn't make me care for her. Nick's lack of action was repetitive, which didn't engage me in his character neither. I ended up not caring whether or not the characters got together or how; the only thing that kept me going was the family interaction. This was definitely disappointing and not one of Roberts' best in the romance sector.

I will be the first to admit that I am a little in love with Nora Roberts. There's little of her work that I've read that I didn't fall in love with.But the Stanislaskis have a special place in my heart. I come back to them, again and again, whenever I want something cozy to keep me warm at night, or to lift my spirits. Roberts is a good writer in general, but she excels at exploring the relationships that exist within a family. This novel explores the connections within the Stanislaski family deeper than others, simply because both of the main characters are in the Stanislaski family (no, they're not related). Freddie has been waiting for Nick since the moment she met him at a young age, and she's finally decided to go after him. Though there are some bumps along the way, they end up together, as the readers always knew they would.Particularly with reading the previous books and seeing the two of them when they were younger, this book is just a wonderful book to read and experience. While this might not be Roberts' best writing, the story never fails to make me believe in the power of enduring love by showing the examples of all the marriages in the Stanislaski family.It's nothing earth-shattering or unique, but it's one of my favorite stories by Roberts.

This is the 5th book in the Stanislaski series, and my favorite of that series.Freddie Kimball is the daughter of Spence Kimball from Taming Natasha. Nick LeBeck is the brother of Zack Muldoon from Falling for Rachel. They met back in Falling for Rachel, when Freddie was 13 and Nick was 19.Back then, Nick was trouble, but becoming part of the Stanislaski family straightened him out, and he's now a respected composer. In fact, he's been asked to write the songs for a new musical for Maddie O'Hurley (Dance to the Piper). Unfortunately, his usual lyricist can't work with him.Which is fortunate for Freddie, who offers her services, and after quite a bit of arguing, she convinces him to work with her.What Nick doesn't know is that writing lyrics is just the tip of the iceberg of Freddie's plans. She's been in love with him for years, and has decided that it's time to do something about it.Nick has trouble initially thinking of Freddie as someone other than a young girl, a sort-of-cousin. He's also troubled by his past, feeling that a former gang member is definitely not good enough for Freddie. And then there's the whole family looking over their shoulders. But Freddie's nothing if not determined.There were the expected appearances of other family members from the series, as well as the O'Hurleys from another of Nora's series, but in this case, it didn't seem remotely forced. Freddie and Nick were members of the same extended family, so it would have seemed odd if the family hadn't shown up. And the O'Hurleys were a nice bonus, but also logical.I always like the books where the h/h have known each other a long time. Something about them knowing each other so well & falling in love with the whole person. Odd, because I was married within 6 months of meeting Carl, and I wouldn't have it any other way. Maybe it's the contrast with real life that appeals to me.Surprise, surprise, I don't have any complaints with this one. It's just a sweet, feel-good book that leaves me smiling: * I smiled when Freddie came to New York with her 3-fold plan. * I smiled through all their bickering about the songs. * I smiled at Nick's reaction to meeting Chantal O'Hurley (Skin Deep). * I smiled when Nick wanted to get her some brandy or a glass of water "for the shock" after the first time they made love (well, okay, I laughed). * I smiled when the family discussed Freddie & Nick's budding romance after the anniversary party. * I smiled when Spence gave Nick a hard time & said it was his duty as a father.etc., etc.

166 pages of Nora Roberts is way-better than 400 pages of a lot of others! Excellent read!
