    Margo, the housekeepers daughter, has always been in Josh Templeton s life And he s always loved her He has helped her out of a few scrapes, but this last one has almost broken her This is a beautiful romance with wonderful characters Nora has the gift of keeping her main hero and heroine in the foreground while setting up the story for the next book and the one after that She s amazing

    I liked Daring To Dream , 1996 and nearly all the charactersthan any novel receiving two stars However, I will not overlook the deluge of plot clich s, cookie cutter scenarios, dialogue, and the creep that Margo a model who was embezzled to bankruptcy, loves If romances are like this, I am glad I seldom read them I was thrice appalled at what Nora Roberts thought was acceptable behaviour, in her late 1990s and early 2000s novels In this novel too, the man she penned is bossy, expels I liked Daring To Dream , 1996 and nearly all the charactersthan any novel receiving two stars However, I will not overlook the deluge of plot clich s, cookie cutter scenarios, dialogue, and the creep that Margo a model who was embezzled to bankruptcy, loves If romances are like this, I am glad I seldom read them I was thrice appalled at what Nora Roberts thought was acceptable behaviour, in her late 1990s and early 2000s novels In this novel too, the man she penned is bossy, expels anger that becomes preposterously cold, is proprietary, and physically aggressive Even if he does not harm a lady and it is out of playfulness nobody should hold anyone s wrists and not let them go.Just because someone eventually agrees to copulate, does not mean she should be cajoled into it I wish Nora had attempted originality not choosing the one to whom you were attracted since childhood It is so muchrealistic to realize she wanted and deserved better In real life we seldom settle for a first potential partner Too few novelists understand that I was astounded and impressed with Juliet Blackwell in her witch series that her protagonist outgrows her series initial love interest Nora created men in three other books I could not possibly respect They are preferable to this one, Josh Josh and Laura are wealthy siblings with loving parents They adopted their niece, Kate and regard Margo and her Irish immigrant Mother, as family She is their trusted, live in house manager I love best friends supporting each other no matter where they are However, unique personalities have commonalities Nora was silly about forcing each to be so different, they were caricatures logical Kate, loyal Laura, celebrity Margo I will read the others because I own them

    If you like Nora Roberts s books then you will enjoy this one It is pretty much her standard fare with three beautiful and talented female friends about to meet the loves of their lives, one at a time of course, in each of the three titles of a trilogy I quite enjoyed this one but the two lead characters were actually not very nice and probably deserved each other I do not feel compelled to seek out the next book in the trilogy although I would probably be happy to read it on a beach some day If you like Nora Roberts s books then you will enjoy this one It is pretty much her standard fare with three beautiful and talented female friends about to meet the loves of their lives, one at a time of course, in each of the three titles of a trilogy I quite enjoyed this one but the two lead characters were actually not very nice and probably deserved each other I do not feel compelled to seek out the next book in the trilogy although I would probably be happy to read it on a beach some day if I happened to come across it Not the best of her books by far


  4. Jonetta Jonetta says:

    This is a good story and introduction of the characters for the trilogy I just didn t like Margo, the main character in the story She was just too superficial and self absorbed I enjoyed the relationship between the friends, which was the high point of the story It s worth it to read this book just to get to their stories And maybe Margo won t annoy others as she did me.

    i always hate getting stuck with a main character like this she s all concerned with fame and fortune,has apparently slept with everyone sometimes just to boost her career and had an affair with a married man.what started out like a good book ended quickly.really quickly the prologue was the only interesting thing in the whole book.and nora never really went anywhere with it.the characters aren t likeable,which is typical in a nora roberts book.there s a lot of short sentences like.this that i always hate getting stuck with a main character like this she s all concerned with fame and fortune,has apparently slept with everyone sometimes just to boost her career and had an affair with a married man.what started out like a good book ended quickly.really quickly the prologue was the only interesting thing in the whole book.and nora never really went anywhere with it.the characters aren t likeable,which is typical in a nora roberts book.there s a lot of short sentences like.this that are.annoying to read Appearances were important in business.Were important to Peter nora spends so much time writing about decorations in the house or views from the window or plants outside and all this fancy stuff and doesn t focus on much else.at times she would go on and on about it and you couldn t ever really get a great mental image of it because half of what she s talking about you ve never heard of,and all i wanted was to her to just get on with the story.i was never sure why laura would automatically smile when she saw her husband or go up and kiss him after she knows he cheated on her.while we re on that,why did it take her so long to dump him i don t like reading about characters like these or the situations they re in at all sure,its situations real people are in,but it shouldn t be in a romance book there was nothin romantic about any of that at all.the main character was impossible to like.not sure why she slept with a man who s divorce hadn t been finalized.she didn t deserve a happy ending at all.she was broke and yet didn t wanna sell her stuff.her really expensive stuff that you d have to be an idiot to buy in the first place then she would say she wouldn t let anyone give her money or pay for stuff and yet when someone offered the thought of denying didn t even cross her mind.she would always say something and then do the complete opposite.she s a materialistic self centered arrogant person with no morals everyone kept complimenting her and pumping up her already inflated ego.all the cussing in here was unnessary every other sentence was GD this and F that.the whole relationship between the friends and brothers was weird.like them watching him do it with that girl years ago.kate kissing margo on the lips some of the stuff in here was straight perverted 1st its animals and now its family.i tell ya,nora roberts has some very sick fetishes.usually its the guy whos been around the block a thousand times and not the girl,so it was weird to have that reversed in here.i just love and i mean hate when these guys love the girl for years but all throughout this they re getting with other women i mean is it just impossible for ppl to be dedicated to one person as always in a nora roberts book,the guy would do something outrageous like say she would stay with him and she gets mad but suddenly fogets how to refuse or just leave.then all of a sudden she d get over it.margo was a smokeaholic and an alcoholic,while kate was a Tums popper.characters in noras books are always drinkin wine.Kate turned into a real a hole when they got older.their friendship was terrible.susan better watch her husband,because i swear margo was after him which was gross.but hey that s just how margo rolls.there were some funny comments in here and the whole locker thing was funny.everyone who had a hand in the shop were cons if you ask me.talking people into buying things,saying people looked good in stuff even when they didnt basically,its the kind of shopkeepers you don t wanna run into.the prices at the stoor were outrageous.you d have to be insanely rich to buy that stuff how is the store gunna survive when you run out of stuff you can t keep buying off people s hand me downs.who the heck kisses someone out of gratitude and friendship on the lips i know margo was upset when she said she wished she had slept with claudio,but idk if she was serious or not.given her personality, im not entirely sure she wasnt serious all nora s girl characters say crap like this i select the time, the place, and my playmates talking about sex.its annoyingi have to wonder who actually talks like that margo wanted wanted wanted and kept wanting and everyone always gave her everything she never dealt with the consequences or felt bad about anything.margo had basically hit rock bottom,and had gotten a lot of money back because everything works out for margo but she kept forking out money,using her credit card, spendingandmoney then has the gall to make josh buy a house.so basically she learned that even if you screw up ad wind up broke,you can always make your friends pay for everything.nora roberts characters always braid their hair.how many grown women do you see doing that i mean french braid,pigtails,whatever,grown women dont do that alot.the whole if you walk talk meaning josh leaving the relationship was stupid.one minute margo was saying she didn t wanna marry or have kids and the next she s saying she wants to start a family with him.i didn t buy it margo isnt a sincere, faithful, loyal person at all and she doesn t deserve josh at all.i dont see them having a happily ever after.also,nora roberts put seraphina in there then never went anywhere with it.we didn t learnabout the story.we didn t find out if the gold dabloon was even real or how much it was worth or if there wasgold out there.of course,all that might be in the other 2 books in the series,so i ll let this one slide

    The Dream Trilogy is about three woman who will have to face turmoils and changes in their lives Each woman are different and deal differently with challenges, but they can always count on each other to tackled the problems Margo Sullivan is the daughter of the Templeton s housekeeper but grew up with them as if she was family Margo has always had high aspirations She wanted to travel and see the world and become famous So that what she did when she left her home at eighteen to become a mod The Dream Trilogy is about three woman who will have to face turmoils and changes in their lives Each woman are different and deal differently with challenges, but they can always count on each other to tackled the problems Margo Sullivan is the daughter of the Templeton s housekeeper but grew up with them as if she was family Margo has always had high aspirations She wanted to travel and see the world and become famous So that what she did when she left her home at eighteen to become a model A decade later, Margo come back at Templeton House after wasting her fortune and a scandal Harvard graduate and lawyer Josh Templeton is not happy to learn about Margo s misfortunes but he s happy to see her forthan a brief visit In love with the woman he likes to call Duchess since they were teenager, he never let his feelings showed, considering it preferable to wait for the right time Josh and Margo were like some kind of frenemy, always bickering but in a friendly way But Josh has always been a man who gets what he want and this time he ll make it clear that she s want he wants and the once friendly squabble will turn into passionated banters This novel is one of the oldest book I own the pages even began to turn yellow and after rereading it for the third time, I still see why the Dream Trilogy is my favorite Nora Robert s series It s so sad that her latest work doesn t give me the same feelings of contentment but at least I ll always have these ones and it makes me happy It s interesting to realize Margo was not a perfect heroine She s pretty stubborn and also a little selfish at the beginning but her pride is what helped her hold on and find new purpose in life instead of feeling sorry for herself Seeing a main character growth is one of the thing that makes a story better, after all And despite her shortcomings, she was a loyal friend and a dreamer who work for what she wants An other thing I really liked was the not always easy but beautiful relationship between the heroine and her mother Josh was a nice guy with just a little bit of an edge to make things spicy and the romance between him and Margo had different layers that were so fun to discover

t likeable,which is typical in a nora roberts book.there s a lot of short sentences like.this that i always hate getting stuck with a main character like this she s all concerned with fame and

only interesting thing in the whole book.and nora never really went anywhere with it.the characters aren t likeable,which is typical in a nora roberts book.there s a lot of short sentences like.this that are.annoying to read Appearances were important in business.Were important to Peter nora spends so much time writing about decorations in the house or views from the window or plants outside and all this fancy stuff and doesn t focus on much else.at times she would go on and on about it and you couldn t ever really get a great mental image of it because half of what she s talking about you ve never heard of,and all i wanted was to her to just get on with the story.i was never sure why laura would automatically smile when she saw her husband or go up and kiss him after she knows he cheated on her.while we re on that,why did it take her so long to dump him i don t like reading about characters like these or the situations they re in at all sure,its situations real people are in,but it shouldn t be in a romance book there was nothin romantic about any of that at all.the main character was impossible to like.not sure why she slept with a man who s divorce hadn t been finalized.she didn t deserve a happy ending at all.she was broke and yet didn t wanna sell her stuff.her really expensive stuff that you d have to be an idiot to buy in the first place then she would say she wouldn t let anyone give her money or pay for stuff and yet when someone offered the thought of denying didn t even cross her mind.she would always say something and then do the complete opposite.she s a materialistic self centered arrogant person with no morals everyone kept complimenting her and pumping up her already inflated ego.all the cussing in here was unnessary every other sentence was GD this and F that.the whole relationship between the friends and brothers was weird.like them watching him do it with that girl years ago.kate kissing margo on the lips some of the stuff in here was straight perverted 1st its animals and now its family.i tell ya,nora roberts has some very sick fetishes.usually its the guy whos been around the block a thousand times and not the girl,so it was weird to have that reversed in here.i just love and i mean hate when these guys love the girl for years but all throughout this they re getting with other women i mean is it just impossible for ppl to be dedicated to one person as always in a nora roberts book,the guy would do something outrageous like say she would stay with him and she gets mad but suddenly fogets how to refuse or just leave.then all of a sudden she d get over it.margo was a smokeaholic and an alcoholic,while kate was a Tums popper.characters in noras books are always drinkin wine.Kate turned into a real a hole when they got older.their friendship was terrible.susan better watch her husband,because i swear margo was after him which was gross.but hey that s just how margo rolls.there were some funny comments in here and the whole locker thing was funny.everyone who had a hand in the shop were cons if you ask me.talking people into buying things,saying people looked good in stuff even when they didnt basically,its the kind of shopkeepers you don t wanna run into.the prices at the stoor were outrageous.you d have to be insanely rich to buy that stuff how is the store gunna survive when you run out of stuff you can t keep buying off people s hand me downs.who the heck kisses someone out of gratitude and friendship on the lips i know margo was upset when she said she wished she had slept with claudio,but idk if she was serious or not.given her personality, im not entirely sure she wasnt serious all nora s girl characters say crap like this i select the time, the place, and my playmates talking about sex.its annoyingi have to wonder who actually talks like that margo wanted wanted wanted and kept wanting and everyone always gave her everything she never dealt with the consequences or felt bad about anything.margo had basically hit rock bottom,and had gotten a lot of money back because everything works out for margo but she kept forking out money,using her credit card, spendingandmoney then has the gall to make josh buy a house.so basically she learned that even if you screw up ad wind up broke,you can always make your friends pay for everything.nora roberts characters always braid their hair.how many grown women do you see doing that i mean french braid,pigtails,whatever,grown women dont do that alot.the whole if you walk talk meaning josh leaving the relationship was stupid.one minute margo was saying she didn t wanna marry or have kids and the next she s saying she wants to start a family with him.i didn t buy it margo isnt a sincere, faithful, loyal person at all and she doesn t deserve josh at all.i dont see them having a happily ever after.also,nora roberts put seraphina in there then never went anywhere with it.we didn t learnabout the story.we didn t find out if the gold dabloon was even real or how much it was worth or if there wasgold out there.of course,all that might be in the other 2 books in the series,so i ll let this one slide

    The Dream Trilogy is about three woman who will have to face turmoils and changes in their lives Each woman are different and deal differently with challenges, but they can always count on each other to tackled the problems Margo Sullivan is the daughter of the Templeton s housekeeper but grew up with them as if she was family Margo has always had high aspirations She wanted to travel and see the world and become famous So that what she did when she left her home at eighteen to become a mod The Dream Trilogy is about three woman who will have to face turmoils and changes in their lives Each woman are different and deal differently with challenges, but they can always count on each other to tackled the problems Margo Sullivan is the daughter of the Templeton s housekeeper but grew up with them as if she was family Margo has always had high aspirations She wanted to travel and see the world and become famous So that what she did when she left her home at eighteen to become a model A decade later, Margo come back at Templeton House after wasting her fortune and a scandal Harvard graduate and lawyer Josh Templeton is not happy to learn about Margo s misfortunes but he s happy to see her forthan a brief visit In love with the woman he likes to call Duchess since they were teenager, he never let his feelings showed, considering it preferable to wait for the right time Josh and Margo were like some kind of frenemy, always bickering but in a friendly way But Josh has always been a man who gets what he want and this time he ll make it clear that she s want he wants and the once friendly squabble will turn into passionated banters This novel is one of the oldest book I own the pages even began to turn yellow and after rereading it for the third time, I still see why the Dream Trilogy is my favorite Nora Robert s series It s so sad that her latest work doesn t give me the same feelings of contentment but at least I ll always have these ones and it makes me happy It s interesting to realize Margo was not a perfect heroine She s pretty stubborn and also a little selfish at the beginning but her pride is what helped her hold on and find new purpose in life instead of feeling sorry for herself Seeing a main character growth is one of the thing that makes a story better, after all And despite her shortcomings, she was a loyal friend and a dreamer who work for what she wants An other thing I really liked was the not always easy but beautiful relationship between the heroine and her mother Josh was a nice guy with just a little bit of an edge to make things spicy and the romance between him and Margo had different layers that were so fun to discover
