Quote-Tastic(15): "Celebrity in Death" by J.D. Robb

I forgot last week to post, but I'm making a comeback :D I chose the last audiobook that I've been reading to, and it's amazing! Let me show you an excerpt from "Celebrity in Death" by J.D. Robb:

Nadine carried in her own coffee and a plate of cookies. She plopped the cookies on the table. “Now, look—”
“No, you sit, and you now look.” Eve grabbed a cookie, just in case Nadine got pissy and snatched them away. “You’re a witness to a suspicious death. I’m required to interview you, get a statement.”
“I’ll give you a statement,” Nadine said darkly. “I want my goddamn ’link, my PPC. You’ve got no right to—”
“Oh, knock it off.” Eve bit into the cookie—not bad. “You’re not getting either until I clear it because you’re damn well not contacting your producer or editor or whatever the hell so Channel 75 can throw up a big special bulletin that K.T. Harris was found facedown in Mason Roundtree’s lap pool—details to fucking follow.”
“I’m a reporter, and it’s my job to do exactly what you just laid out. I’m on the scene. I had dinner with the corpse.”
Tossing back her streaky hair, Nadine narrowed her cat’s eyes to slits.
“If you think for one hot minute I’m letting another reporter, another channel, another anything or anybody scoop me on this, then think a-fucking-gain. What are you smiling at?” she snapped at Roarke.
“I’m a man, and I’m sitting here having coffee and cookies while two beautiful women snarl at each other. Being a man I’m required to wonder—perhaps imagine—whether there will soon be physical contact. Clothing may be ripped away. Why wouldn’t I smile?”
“Not perfect,” Eve muttered. “Shut up for five seconds,” she ordered Nadine, “before we’re in his head naked, oiled up, and rolling around on the floor.”
“And my smile grows wider.”

You can find JD Robb/Nora Roberts on one of her websites or facebook

  2. I tried one of her NR series but wasn't impressed, so when someone[forgot who] said I HAD to read this one I was prepared to hate it. OMG I am so happy that I read it! It's SO good, seriously. Listen to the audiobooks the narrator is amazing and she made me love the series at first, after that the characters just... grew on me.

  3. OMG I need this one!! I'm behind and haven't gotten to it yet but dammit I want it bad. I freaking love Roarke. He's so pretty. lol

    And yeah the Nora Roberts ones. I can't read those. I've tried like 6 and nope can't do them. But the Robb books? All time favorite series. No question.

  4. I want to try 2 of her NR books, but I don;t know when :D
    OMG It's one of mine as well, this series is amazing! I'm not bored of the same characters even in the 40 something book!

  5. I know! Isnt that amazing?? People look at me like I'm crazy when I say that but really it's Roarke and Eve! And Peabody. And McNab! And...
