The Perfect Hope
The Perfect Hope - Nora Roberts

Ehhh not too much to say. I loved Hope and loathed Ryder. I am glad for the most part that Roberts latest contemporary romances do not have the whole alpha male who is an asshole, but secretly has a heart of gold thing. Most of the crap Ryder did to Hope was "negging" in the first two books (he refuses to use her name and calls her innkeeper) and I thought too many people kept giving him passes. The only reason why I gave this three stars was that Hope was great, that the trilogy seems to take place over a two year period, and it was nice to read a romance that didn't take place in New York. I think Roberts skipped past some really good sub-plots in order to get back to the "investigation" into Lizzy which I still didn't care about.


"The Perfect Hope" finds the Inn Boonsboro ready for the summer. Clare is married and expecting, Avery is engaged to get married the following year, and now Hope feels a bit lost. She was left hurt by the end of her last relationship and realizing that the man she was with, didn't love her, and his family really didn't care about her at all. When her friends propose Ryder (why you guys? Are there no other men) Hope considers it and then proposes a "situation with no strings" with Ryder. 


I just have to say this, Hope was too good for Ryder. I really wish that Roberts had some tension develop with her realizing that Ryder was set in his ways and wasn't opening himself up to her. The way he talked to her in this book and the last two books really set my teeth on edge. And I hated that Hope's supposed friends made it seem like well maybe he has a thing for you. Nope. Nope. Nope. 


Ryder doesn't change at all (IMHO) he just stays the same and then goes around and does the He-Man crap when a situation comes up involving Hope. I just wasn't feeling him at all since it didn't seem to me he was in love with Hope at all. The story put them together, but I wasn't seeing true love through the ages. 

The resolution to the whole ghost thing was eyeroll inducing. I went really a few times and just didn't care. I think for me that the series was just a platform to showcase Roberts new business and I wish that there had been more development of the last two romances in the series. I loved Clare and Beckett, loved Avery and felt meh about Owen, and then loved Hope and loathed Ryder.

Review: Hope/Less
Hope/Less (Perfect Partners, Incorporated Book 6) - Ann Christy

I don't know where to start... This story is so sad but yet it's wonderful at the same time.

Ella is a PePr, a synthetic being who become sentient. After working for a ten years for a private investigator, she learns that her owner is planning to have her traded in for a newer model. It's ironic that her last assignment is to track down and dismantle an underground network that works to free PePrs.

Ella wants to be free, but she wants to be free legally, not just on the run. She has hopes that someday PePrs will be manumitted, but she's afraid that it won't be soon enough for her.

I feel horrible for Ella. She's worked hard and done her best, and now she finds herself torn between running to survive, or risking being wiped clean, losing who she is.

This was a deeply emotional story for me... One of the best in the author's PePr series.


NOTE: This story takes place prior to "Posthumous" in the PePr timeline of events.

Review: The Perfect Hope by Nora Roberts
The Perfect Hope - Nora Roberts

Hope and Ryder spend most of this book acting more like friends with benefits (although they weren’t really friends to begin with) then a couple.  The drama comes mostly from Jonathan, Hope’s ex.  He wants her back even though he’s married now.  We learn a lot more about their relationship, one that she believed was exclusive until he told her he was marrying another woman. There are some misunderstandings between Ryder and Hope, but they are short lived  and they get a HEA (no surprise there!)

This final book in the trilogy also resolved the Inn’s ghost “issue”.  Lizzy has been part of this series from the first book and even helps save Clare when her stalker goes too far.  We learn a little more about her as each book progresses.  The end result is Lizzy being reunited with her lover.
