    1. This is one of the worst books I have ever read! I was about halfway through and couldn't take it anymore. I think then the character said "so what did you think about my body" I was done. :( Don't waste your time.

    2. This book was originally released as "A Single Rose". It was not my favorite even though I tried to remember that it was written in the 80's and romance novels were very different back then.Victoria Lesser guilts her niece into traveling with her on a treasure hunt, arranged for her by the two couples she had successfully matched. Instead of finding treasure both she and her niece Shay find romance with Samson and Noah.It was a fast read. The storyline was interesting but the two younger main ch [...]

    3. Victoria was known for her matchmaking and her friends while at dinner with her decided they wanted to show her how happy they were. So they decided they would give her an adventure with on of the professors at the univeristy. He was going on treasure hunt in Costa Ricca. Victoria decided to call her niece with talking and more talking Shaye decided to go. Victoria called to let the professor know her niece would be coming. When they got to the ship there was a surprise there would be no other p [...]

    4. Shades of Congressman Akin in this novel.I must preface by saying this book was written in 1987. That dates the work.I had to laugh about the discussion in the book. Basically, "I didn't use any protection." "That's okay, I just finished my period so it's not a good time."At least I'll give Ms. Delinsky props for having this mentioned even though it's wrong. Granted it wouldn't be a "good time" but anything can happen.Maybe because we think differently these days but I wasn't impressed with this [...]

    5. I only finished this book because it was in the bathroom and I kept forgetting to replace it with something readable. A very dated book (no condoms needed for people who've just met) with a ridiculous premisermer wild child (she has an "embarassing" rose tattoo on her chest) goes straight and won't date any but the most boring men. Gets stuck on a boat with the naughty boy of her dreams. You know the rest.

    6. I picked this up in the new releases section of the public library the other day and only discovered later that it is a re-release of a 1987 novel. I was intrigued by a quote on the cover describing a touching and heartbreaking novel that is highly recommended. I later realized this quote concerned another one of this author's books! All that being said I read this quickly and did enjoy it even if it wasn't what I had expected!

    7. Really quick ready one day. I had to read about three chapters or so to get hooked. But once Shaye and Noah met I could not stop reading. The chemistry between the two characters was amazing. I do feel that this could have been extended and added on to make it longer which I would have enjoyed.

    8. I might have rated this a two star but if was my fault that I didn't see this was one her early straight romance novels. I downloaded a bunch of Delinsky from the library so this was just a basic romance. I can't fault her for writing something I normally wouldn't bother to read. Quick, fluff and predictable.

    9. I have read several books by this author that I enjoyed. This was not one of them. Trite, formulaic, dated, insipid, poor plotyou get the picture. Looks like one of her early pulp romance efforts palmed off on a later audience. I'm glad her writing improved, but this has soured me on her books. Pity.

    10. This was a book that was easy to listen to while doing housework. It wasn't very long so I didn't need to invest a lot of time in it. As romance novels go it was ok, whilst I do love this genre I find that I prefer historical romance much more. The characters where all too typical and so was the plot. If I'd been reading this rather than listening to it, I'm not sure I'd have finished it.

    11. I thought the book had a predictable, but interesting premise. However, I felt that the author didn't spend enough time developing Shay and Noah's character. In addition, the ending was really rushed. Long story short, this book felt like the old boat in the story; smooth sailing at first, but then you realize that you shouldn't have sailed it in the first place.

    12. I didn't know Barbara Delinsky was a romance writer. I wasn't expecting a novel full of sexual tension and bickering only to be thrown together at the end in a quickie ending.If this is the way all of her books are, I'll pass.

    13. I was looking for something to read and saw this on my library's website. After reading the synopsis, I realized I had read this years ago. It is one of the author's simpler, earlier books, but was quite enjoyable.

    15. Not a great novel, but better than some.A typical romance novel they hate each other, they love each otherc.A good one to read between heavier books.

    16. Not what I expected but I liked the matchmaking and chemistry of the characters. I normally read murder mystery or characters who've hid life long secrets. This book was a light change of pace.

    17. Cute story about treasure hunting, and falling in love with someone you didn't like when you met him.

    21. Very entertaing, would be a perfect beach read or a cold night in front of the fire. Since this is one of her older books, it is a different style than the more recent.

    22. This is a silly book lacking believeable characters and dialogue. A waste of time.
