Review: Naked in Death by J.D Robb

by 8/25/2015 0 comments

I've had heard wonderful things about this series for a few years now. Those who are fans of this series are very serious fans, and I've been told over and over to read this series, that it's a wonderful series and that I would absolutely love it.

Series: In Death, #1
My Rating: 
Genre: Romantic Suspense

And I wanted to read it, but the series is thirty plus books in and well...that's a daunting amount of books to read in one series. So I kinda put it off. After all, I had my retirement years to read this series, right?

But I finally decided I ought at least read the first book in the series and see if I'd even be interested in reading this series. And, wow, am I ever. This was so not what I was expecting. I thought it was paranormal romance, but I didn't know what to expect. And the serial killer suspense romance I got set in the future, a future that had a lot of techy gadgets we would have imagined in the 80s or early 90s, just sucked me in. The first chapter blew my mind in a big way.
Alternate cover 
Eve is a character that has some serious trauma in her past. And you can feel it there at times, but I couldn't help but admire how she could delve into the mind of the killer and figure out his MO. I was impressed by how she handled each situation and character in the novel. Her job was paramount, and no one was getting in the way of that. Even Roarke.

I have no idea what to say about Roarke. He's mysterious, but there's this element about him that really intrigued me. He was compelled by Eve, to comfort her, to help her, even while he tested and challenged her. I liked them together as a couple, but I'm unsure about both of their characters as well. There's layers to them that have yet to be peeled away. Where will this series, these characters go?  I can't wait to find out.

Happy Reading
