In a world of danger and deception, she walks the line--between seductive passion and scandalous murder... Eve Dallas is a New York police lieutenant hunting for a ruthless killer. In over ten years on the force, she's seen it all--and knows her survival depends on her instincts. And she's going against every warning telling her not to get involved with Roarke, an Irish billionaire--and a suspect in Eve's murder investigation. But passion and seduction have rules of their own, and it's up to Eve to take a chance in the arms of a man she knows nothing about--except the addictive hunger of needing his touch.
This is actually the third time I've read Naked In Death. The first time was in 2011 and I just had my first born son. Since at the time it was hard for me to read hard copy books I was mainly reading from ebooks. Unfortunately I didn't continue the series, and to my bafflement I'm not 100% sure why not.
It wasn't until 2013 when I decided to start again and continue with the series. I only read up to book nine (there are at least over 30 books in the series). Again, why I didn't continue is still a mystery.
So now we are in 2015 and I've decided once again to start from the beginning and work my way through the series. This time I will be continuing on. Also coincidence that I have a new baby?
Even though this was my third time reading Naked In Death so I knew what was going to happen, I basically knew who the killer was, I still found myself unable to put this down. I had to know what was going to happen next even though I knew what it was. There is just something about J.D. Robb (aka Nora Roberts) that you are instantly trapped in her books no matter how many times you read it.
Eve Dallas is a strong independent woman, which was the first thing I loved about her. She spoke her mind and wasn't taking any bullshit from anyone.
What intrigued me most about her was her battle with her past. If you haven't read this series then I'm not going to tell you what that was, it's a big twist in the life of Eve Dallas.
As a mother when I first read this about Eve I only had a boy so it didn't hit too close to home. But now that I have a girl I felt extremely emotional. No child for that matter should have to experience what Eve did.
If you have read any Nora Roberts books you would know her strong points, and they are romance, friendship and family. She just knows what to write when it comes to this that when you're reading it, you can't help but feel warm inside. Okay I know that sounds a bit strange, but have you ever read a beautiful book that just makes you smile out of nowhere just thinking about it? Well Nora Roberts always has that effect with me.
Even though she adds a bit of darkness to her novels, there is always a bright sunshine at the end of the tunnel.
Naked In Death is a great crime/mystery novel mainly in the point of view of lieutenant Eve Dallas, so you are with her completely while she tries to solve a murder. And just like all great crime novels, you will be shocked to find out who did it. I know I was.
Can not wait to read the next book in the series, so stay tuned for another book review soon.
