Présentation de l'éditeur

A little distraction can be a wonderful thing.
Nate Torrance has a job to do, and the biggest rugby boots in the world to fill. He can’t afford to lose his focus, especially not to a brown-eyed Canadian who pushes all his buttons and looks much too good in a climbing harness.

Allison Villiers may not know what she wants to do with her life, but she’s clear about one thing. She’s not impressed by the new captain of the All Blacks, however big a deal he is to the rest of New Zealand. If only her unfortunate taste for adventure didn’t keep leading her astray ...

Note: This STAND-ALONE romance, like New Zealand, contains a bit of steam. If that isn’t your cuppa, you may want to visit some other country ... er, book.

Biographie de l'auteur

5.0 étoiles sur 5 An Outstanding `Escape' 13 juillet 2013
Par R. Pryor - Publié sur Amazon.com

I've come to realize I read Rosalind James's books for basically the same reason I read thriller novels: I'm an escapism junkie. I'll basically read anything I can get emotionally caught up in, whether it's somebody racing to find a 20-megaton terrorist nuke or the kind of heart-swelling, oh-damn-I'm getting-tears-in-my-eyes climaxes James specializes in. She does villains and creeps very well (see also her set-in-America book "Welcome to Paradise"), but her principal characters, while far from flawless, are always the kind of smart, likeable, resilient people who DESERVE to be happy, which is what I like in my romances. And the cool thing about this one is that there are two storylines with two different couples, and you find yourself pulling hard for both of them to have that happy ending. Do they, ultimately? Ah, I can't tell you that! But man, I enjoyed this book. And as usual, I learned some fascinating stuff about New Zealand. As for the bedroom scenes, they're, um, entirely effective (They were for me, anyway. I like realistic sex, like I like realistic plots & characters. If it's not believable, what's the point?). Anyway, to summarize: An excellent read, one I'll be keeping among my Kindle "re-readables."

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Two Romances in One Novel (Annoying Sister Alert) 5 juillet 2015
Par Connie - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
First of all, it is very important to your reading pleasure and understanding of the characters that you read these books in order. (Save Prequel Book 0.5 until you've read several installments.

We were introduced to the heroines in this novel earlier in the series. Kristen is the flighty younger sister (think Lydia in Pride and Prejudice) of Hannah who is married to the All Blacks captain. While I loved Liam, Kristen's suitor, she is a bit of a pill. Her looks seem to be the most significant part of her character. She is SO beautiful that she is constantly approached by men if she is left on her own and SO beautiful that she has to be careful how she dresses to go to a wedding so as not to upstage the bride. GAK!

Liam has had his share of demons (alcohol and skirt - chasing) and is determined to be a better person. Other than the fact that Kristen decides to be celibate for almost a year, I'm not sure she's really a better person or good enough for Liam. I suppose we are supposed to be impressed that she is now dating Liam who is not much in the looks department. Would he have been as attractive to her without his status as an All Black or his willingness to wine & dine her and buy her fancy shoes? He REALLY goes out of his way to cater to her. She even tells him that she is good enough looking for the both of them when they talk about having kids.

I liked Ally a lot. She was spunky, athletic, and competitive. She was not willing to put up with less than she wanted from Nate. I had some sympathy for Nate, who has the toughest job in New Zealand, but he was not written in an overly likeable way. I thought the ending was a little far - fetched, but this was still a good read.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 I liked it a lot; just wish it had been 2 books 14 mars 2015

I love Rosalind James’s writing. She is quick, witty and her characters are all so different. They are flawed yet relatable. I also love the New Zealand/rugby angel, both of which I now have a big interest in, just because of her books. I LOVE this about the series. I get to travel to New Zealand without the long plane ride. Just my Luck had so much story it could have been 2 books. In fact, I wish it had been.
One story follows Allison and new captain of the all Blacks Nate (Toro) and the other Kristen and Liam (Mako).
Allison and Nate- She moved to EnZed after 6 years with a man who just let her go. She is now working in a male dominated climbing gym. Nate is the new captain of the All Blacks and is feeling the pressure. They hike and do other outdoorsy things and they spar with each other and make hot, steamy love. Really they have sex because he won’t commit to loving her (Rugby is his focus) which, even though she denies it, is a huge problem for her. There are other sleazy men in the story and you really hate one of them and Allison isn’t smart bout him, but one thing for Ms. James’s books no one is an angel. Quick wit,
Kristen is taking a year of celibacy and Liam is a recovering alcoholic. I wanted to know more about them and they are there but not enough. Kristen is the beautiful sister of Hannah from Book 1 but she has panic attacks that we only hear about once. I feel like Liam, who was my favorite of the book, was left out in the cold a bit. His back story is given, by him, but I wanted to know more! He is kind, wise and really the best character of the book.
I found it a bit tougher to switch between the 4 characters in audiobook especially because Nate and Liam both had nicknames. I think I retain the nicknames better when I read than when I am listening. Ms. Booking did a great job of creating the different voices; I just found that I had to listen carefully at the beginning of the chapter to see which character we were following.
These books are well worth the time and I am a huge fan. I am so glad I found this author!

I highly recommend Just My Luck by Rosalind James to anyone looking for a good romance novel with realistic characters and situations or anyone looking for a story about people going through challenging transitional periods in a fun way in New Zealand in all its lively and culturally rich glory.

This book features two plots developing side by side and revolving around roommates Ally and Kristen. The two women are very different and likeable. Ally is figuring out her life and what she wants to do with it. She is spontaneous, passionate, and dedicated person. She meets Nate who is by the books and very driven. I really enjoyed reading about their relationship and the challenges they faced. It seemed very realistic. Also, I found the character developments and challenges revolving around her career to be equally engaging. Her roommate Kristen is recently divorced and facing different issues trusting herself and romantic partners. Her romantic counterpart Liam himself has been through personal issues as well and is perfect for great character developments and dialogue between the two. He really is the most steadying character in the entire book, and it feels that way for the reader too.

Just My Luck, like several of the books in this series, is about physically active women. The way James writes about physical activity, particularly in this book, is empowering and is really encouraging to the reader/listener to go out there and exercise or to get outside. It would make a great audio companion for exercise that permits listening to an mp3 player. I don't mean to suggest that reading this book is like reading a romance book by Jillian Michaels though, its just an aspect of the book that is thoughtfully and very well done, and one I appreciate as I try to keep working out as a regular part of my schedule.

More than any other of Rosalind James's Escape to New Zealand books, I have thought about the best way to read this book. Like the rest of the series, you can read this book easily as a stand alone and enjoy it without worrying about getting lost. Ideally, of course, in a series you read them in order in order to understand additional background and appreciate the cameos of characters from previous books. Its not really a spoiler to say that in this book Nate takes over the All Blacks captaincy for the retiring Drew. Even as a reader, and even with Drew and Nate being fictional characters, I found I did have some loyalties to the retired captain when I first read this book when it came out. Listening to it some time later, I found it easier to enjoy the story and to get into Nate's character and to appreciate the story for the great book it is. If you are someone that like me, gets attached to characters, I would recommend putting some time between starting this book and finishing books 1 and 2 (the ones with the most Drew). You have all the background of why Nate has big shoes to fill, but it is (at least for me) much easier to like Nate as a character.

I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. I was not compensated for my review, and I was not required to write a positive review. The opinion expressed here is my own.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Book 5 in a series (While each is a standalone, you must read them all - really great books!) 6 décembre 2013
Par Allenfarm - Publié sur Amazon.com

I have really enjoyed the Rosalind James series Escape to New Zealand. There are 5 books in all, and each one tells a unique story of a relationship blossoming from first introduction on. The first book is Hannah and Drew’s story. It is arguably the slowest of the 5, providing the New Zealand setting and the Rugby football instruction. While the slowest of the 5, it is in no ways a negative on the book itself. In book one, Hard working Hanna meets hard working Drew, and together they learn that sometimes it is ok to relax a little bit and to have someone to share the down time with. Book 2 is the story of Koti and Kate. They have a bet that he can’t be friends with a girl without sex getting in the way. They can barely stand each other, her strong Italian personality a unique experience for him, as well as the fact that she is completely unimpressed with his celebrity status. They have a rocky start, and only begin to like each other when they begin to leave the preconceived notions on the wayside, and take each other at face value. It was refreshing that this couple were together for over 6 weeks before anything happened, and in the end they both end up losing the bet. Book 3 tells of Jenna and Finn. She is a nanny to his children. His love evolves from watching her with his kids, watching her maternal instincts, her strong character. They bond over failed marriages and feelings of unworthy, to learn that it was only because they needed each other to heal. Again, a relationship that develops first as friends over the course of several months before it becomes anything more. Book 4 is about Nic and Emma. One week six years ago was the best of their lives, but when they split apart to go their separate ways, something was left behind, something neither one ever forgot – for him it was a week of his life where he felt unconditional love for who he was, not what he could do on the field. For her it was a son, a son she is unable to let Nic know about even though she tries several times over the years. Chance brings them together again, and while Nic is getting to know his son, Emma and Nic are getting to know each other, too. Emma has to learn how to trust Nic again, even as outside forces try to make her doubt him. This review is about the last book of the series (though I hope not!!!), which is Book 5. This novel tells a dual love story with Nate and Allie, and Kristen and Liam. Kristen and Liam are secondary characters - though their story only gets slightly less development than Nate and Allie's. Kristen is a woman who has been used and hurt and is recovering from past failed relationships and he a recovering alcoholic recovering from a past failed marriage, learning to be strong on their own, and strong together, as this recovery takes place. Nate and Allie’s relationship takes center stage with Nate doing everything he can to ruin the relationship before it ever starts, and Allie a strong independent woman hoping he can learn to get it right.

I came across this series with book 1, a free kindle download. I did not expect to like it, especially when I realized it had a foreign setting. I expected the book to be step 1. Meet at the beach. Step 2. Have wild passionate relationship for 2 weeks. Step 3. Realize you can’t live without each other and get married. End of story. I was so pleasantly surprised that that wasn't the case with book 1, or with any of the books in the series actually. The relationships evolved. The couples courted. You got to see the relationships develop over realistic conversations and realistic events. The books that Rosalind James writes for this series all have this formula. It is refreshing to read a book that doesn't have a couple falling madly in love after 4 days together and living happily ever after. Some of these couples have real problems they have to overcome. Each of these characters stick with you long after the story is over, and it was such a pleasant surprise to have past characters pop up in each new book I read. Rosalind James made believe characters, with believable lives, in a memorable setting that made me want to learn about New Zealand and the world of Rugby Football. And as a nice little bonus, each book comes with a dictionary of common New Zealand terms so that you can see just what it is that these handsome Rugby players are saying. Try the books and you won’t be disappointed. I’m only disappointed that book 5 seems to be the last one.
