Présentation de l'éditeur

When you wish upon a star ...

Alec Kincaid has never met the obstacle he couldn't overcome--or the woman who could resist him. And it's not going to happen now, not with his star shining more brightly than ever in the high-stakes arena of San Francisco's software industry.

Desiree Harlin doesn't believe in fairy tales, and she doesn't waste time wishing. She's learned the hard way that dreams don't come true. And with her reputation and hard-won security on the line, succumbing to temptation isn't an option.

But things aren't always what they seem. And even stars sometimes fall.

Note: Despite the fog, San Francisco does get hot at times. If you prefer your romance without steam, you may want to visit a different city ... er, book

I love novels like this, because in the world as I see it, character determines fate, and dialogue reveals character. And James does the kind of dialogue that just draws you inexorably into her characters' lives. Yes, software-industry titan Alec Kincaid has a well-earned playboy reputation and the ripped physique that goes with it, and yes, he's a world-class software brainiac, but what he mainly is, when he finally meets the right woman, is a foundationally classy guy -- somebody who's always had great strength of character but is now learning to take life and love seriously, and getting rapidly good at it. Unfortunately for him, it's out of the question that he could do more than fantasize about onetime-wallflower-turned-powerhouse-executive-troubleshooter Desiree Harlin; and it's even more true for her that she can't permit herself to even THINK about actually getting involved with Alec because ... ah, well, you don't really want spoilers, do you? Let's just say I can't imagine anybody with even a slightly romantic soul being disappointed by this book. I loved it, including the whole thriller/mystery angle. I suppose some people might want more sex in the first half of the book, or think it's too steamy in the latter half, but isn't that how it works in real life? I have to know these people and care about them before I can get maximum enjoyment out of the sex scenes. But I think that's exactly what makes those scenes work so well, once you get to them: The projector in my head was more than ready to play that particular movie, lol. (I also liked the fact that some characters from James' previous novel, "Welcome To Paradise", put in return appearances here. But they're freshly introduced, so if you haven't read "W To P", it's no barrier to enjoying this story.)

If you like zipless-f, straight-to-the-mattress type erotica or werewolf-on-vampire paranormal angst-and-fiddlin'-around, "Nothing Personal" is probably not going to be your cup of San Francisco java. But if you incline toward emotionally involving romances with realistic characters, some pretty torrid sex (by my lights), and a satisfying Silicon Valley-type mystery, all wrapped up with a heart-tugging denouement, this is pretty much just what the systems analyst ordered.

I honestly didn't think that Rosalind James' book could get any better, but I was WRONG. Nothing Personal is definately one of my favorites, right behind Just Good Friends (an absolute must read, if you haven't done so already).

You can't go wrong, if you decide to purchase Nothing Personal. Both the male and female characters (Alec and Rae) are extremely likable, and Alec is one of the most romantic male characters that James has written...I wish men were that romantic in real life, but alas it's only in our fantasies.

In addition, the character have depth and their relationship is a very believable one, as James doesn't have them jumping into bed together on page 5. They get to know one another, and like many of her other books, this one also contains the 'slow burn'...which, in my opinion, makes the sex scenes all the better when they finally occur.

There is also an interesting secondary story woven throughout the book, which will keep you on your toes and stop you from getting bored with all of the romance and love scene (insert sarcasm here - there has never been a boring moment in a Rosalind James book after all).

As I said before, Nothing Personal has to be one of my favorites - intelligently written, packed with emotion. You can't go wrong. Buy this one, and all of her other books today!!

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Another smart female lead, smartly written by a go-to author for smart romance readers 10 novembre 2013

(not so much a review, more an impression)

I am just so happy Rosalind James writes. I've now read many books by her (the two [thus far] in her Kincaid series and the five in her Escape to New Zealand series) and I am always left with the same takeaway: she writes modern romance with smart, strong, independent, scared, imperfect, dependent women -- *real* women. As a smart, strong, independent, scared, imperfect, dependent woman myself, I like that. No, I *love* that. I love that the women in her stories aren't unable to tie their own shoelaces, that none of them play the "damsel in distress" card, that none of them make the reader roll their eyes and think "idiot." I love that none of the women in her stories need to be rescued or saved by a man. The men may help, the men may love, the men may caretake, but even without the men the women will ultimately be okay. I love that the women in her stories have hurts and fears which may color some of their behaviors. I love that the women in her stories work hard at being honest with themselves as well as with their male paramours -- they are neither manipulative nor deceptive.

I love that Rosalind James doesn't pander to her readers. I love that she writes (mostly) coherently (I do have a nit with how she incorrectly uses quotation marks [she uses an end quote even though the next paragraph starts with the same character still speaking -- every time it takes me a moment to realize "ah, same person *still* speaking" which would've been indicated to the reader by using quotation marks correctly] but that is *so* minor compared to what else is being self-published these days!), using appropriate language but never feeling the need to show off how smart she is (you know how some authors get a bit precious about their linguistic prowess ...). I enjoy how thoroughly we are enmeshed in the subject matter -- the author clearly does her research but it never reads as dry or like an educational tome.

So when she releases a new book I gladly purchase and read it.

Now about "Nothing Personal": while it wasn't my favorite of her books I still quite liked it. I happened to prefer the first in this series (Welcome to Paradise (The Kincaids)) but that may have had more to do with the setting and how captivated I was by "Welcome to Paradise"'s historical mission and its quirky cast of characters.

Rae (nee Desiree) Harlin is a thirty-one year-old MBA, terrific with logistics, a real self-starter and self-made in every sense of the word. Alec Kincaid, thirty-three, is a tech wunderkind working on his next (hopefully successful) start-up; he and his long-time tech partner, Joe, appeal to a VC for funding. They'll receive the funding with the caveat that the VC will choose the CFO, and their choice is Rae. And so it goes.

We know nothing about Rae's previous love life, but we do learn she comes from very humble beginnings and put herself through undergrad and grad school by a lot of hard work, as in waitressing jobs. We know that Alec is a twin (his brother, Gabe, is the male lead in "Welcome to Paradise") and very successful with women, as in sex partners but no dating, no relationships. Even though Rae might not be traditionally gorgeous or sexy, she is uber-smart and capable, and for Alec, those add greatly to Rae's sex appeal.

This is a dialogue-heavy book (another thing I adore!), so through both professional and personal conversations we learn about the characters as well as watch their attraction develop and grow. We also were given interesting insight into Rae and Alec by the author's detailed descriptions of their respective homes' interiors and their reactions to the other's home -- I thought it was a subtle and unique way for us to learn more about Rae and Alec. I liked that.

It feels to this reader that the Escape to New Zealand series is steamier, sexier than this series; this series (the Kincaids) seems more romance-driven than sex. There's some fun sex but it didn't feel like as much as in the New Zealand books. Or maybe I'm getting sex-jaded ... ha ha.

And, because there always has to be majuscule-t Tension, there was a subplot involving corporate espionage (which made me think of Elisabeth Naughton's wonderful Wait For Me -- if you enjoyed "Nothing Personal" definitely check Wait For Me out!). But I was so happy that the Tension was not about a miscommunication between Rae and Alec -- you know the kind that has you pulling out your hair in other stories, thinking "this is so immature and unrealistic!" Again, I loved that Rae and Alec were a team, felt confident in one another's affections, and worked together both at work and at home.

So even though this wasn't my favorite story (in all fairness, earlier this century I was a VC and my husband had a start-up in Silicon Valley, so maybe it was too close to home for me?), I did still really enjoy it. I loved the characters, how adult and real they are, I loved all the dialogue, and I just love the author's imagination, research, writing. I've written it before and I'll write it again: Rosalind James writes romances for smart, interested, interesting, strong, real readers. Yea!

This is part 2 of the "kincaids" story. I really liked the characters and the story. However, sometimes I think the author went in a different direction to create suspense. All in all it's good. There were some steamy love scenes. I think my favorite was book 1 of the series, but I will read book 3 when it comes out.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 quite enjoyable 27 novembre 2013
Par Pure Jonel - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle
This is an intricately written novel by an adult for adults. James melds the workforce with the world outside the workplace to create a masterpiece you won’t be able to put down. That said, at the beginning the story flitted around so much between the different aspects of everyday life for the two main characters that it was a bit hard to get into. This straightened out quickly and then I could barely put it down.

The chapter titles instead of numbers actually add to the story. They add a sense of foreboding without giving anything major away. James references things that many may not recognize but that definitely add to the storyline if you do. I mean, really, anyone who can reference Star Wars is a star in my books. Allusion and metaphor definitely make their play in this novel, drawing you further and further into the mural that James paints for her audience.

The characters in this novel are quite well developed. At the same time, they aren’t over developed. You get to know everyone as real people. You also get to know them as you would if you were in the same situation.

This charismatic novel will keep you captivated from cover to cover, you’ll enjoy it at the beginning and love it at the ending. It is a life changing story that really makes you think. I’d definitely read more by this intriguing author.

Please note that I received this novel free of charge from the author in exchange for an honest review.
