Robynn Carr Has A New Fan


This is a wonderful book but it had a lot of material and people either in relationships or finding new relationships with the opposite sex. The book is really focused on Shelby (25 years old) and Luke (38 years old) it was absolutely wonderful.

Each couple or potential couple have their issues with their other half. As I said, the focus is mostly on Shelby & Luke's relationship. He is a former Black Hawk pilot and she is a "20 something" who has always been a caregiver for her mother. She never had an opportunity to do things that high school and college girls got to do.

Now that her mother has passed, she decides to take a little bit of time to focus on herself and re-creating who she is. One night at the local bar she notices Luke...with all his experience. She sets her eyes on him.

This is a great book, I tried to read another one by Robynn Carr, but I could just not get into it. I'm glad that I gave her a second chance with Temptation Ridge, because I think I might be turning into a bit of a fan!

Performance: I listen to my books on a faster speed most of the time, so I didn't notice the complaints of others. I thought the performance was very good.

If you enjoy contemporary romance you'll definitely like this. There are a few risqué moments but they are few and far between.

Great listen, I believe I got this one on sale. There's plenty of content, filled with enough detail & performed well. I will be spending more credits for this series.

temptation Ridge

I love these Virgin River books by Robyn Carr. I think the narrator is wonderful and with each one of these books I feel like I'm with family. She always includes characters from the other books and ties them together. The men love their women and cherish them as well as their children and always look out for their community. I so wish that Ms. Carr would write about a few more of Jacks service friends and maybe some of Mels friends. These books have some spicey romance but within the context of the story line not just sex for sex sake. These books are always a good use of your time.

The best!!

Robyn Carr does it again with another excellent story in the Virgin River series. If you love Robyn Carr's other VR books you will love this one. The story of Luke and Shelby is excellent. Several other side love stories and catching up on favorite characters from previous books too. I would pay 2 credits for these books. The narrator is excellent too. Don't miss these!!

Yes, I know this is fiction...but

Therese plumber was good as always. The storyline weak. Too many sex scenes and most repetitve. There were a few dramatic scenes that were worth the read. Many of the scenes between the virgin and the older man were just silly. She stared at him because at the age of 25, she had never seen a naked man for real? What, they didn't have HBO in Bodega Bay? Carr's obsession with "tiny" women who eat so little, "his hands fit entirely around her waist", is starting to get boring. I know this is fiction, but what is this telling women? As the real wife of a real Navy diver who served over 20 years, we Navy wives were not all gorgeous sprites. As I recall, only one of the wives at the special forces base I spent years at, was tiny and thin, and she ate like a horse! Most of the men were not giant, muscle-bound hunks. Yes, they were fit with many hours working out, swimming, and running miles per day, but most of the men were in the five foot ten range and very few gorgeous. Maybe they started growing bigger more handsome men after the 90s. Yes, I know, this is fiction. :)

Another great Virgin River installment!

After reading Virgin River, I couldn't wait to start Shelter Mountain, and now I am totally hooked on the series. They keep getting better, and I feel like the characters are old friends and I'm growing with them. But what I am most impressed with, is Therese Plummer's performances. Her ability to alter her voice to very distinct female and male characters is amazing. But not only that...she puts so much emotion into her characters that I have found myself reaching for tissues to dab up the tears! The series is great, and so is the narrator.

A complete Guilty Pleasure.

These books are not high literature. They aren't even lightweight literature. But they are enjoyable books, that satisfy the need for a little junk-food-for-the-brain, and the desire for some sweet, simple, heartwarming stories. They go a bit like this. Big, strong man with a big heart meets sweet, small, sassy woman with an even bigger heart. They meet and it is love at first sight (although it takes them a little while to realize it.) And it is happily ever after. Total guilty pleasure. Therese Plummer is quite amazing with her voices. I am surprised at how well she voices men.

A good read!

Title: Temptation Ridge (A Virgin River Novel)
Author: Robyn Carr
Publisher: Mira Books
Series: Virgin River #6
Reviewed By: Arlena Dean
Rating: 5
Reviewed:

"Temptation Ridge" by Robyn Carr was a beautiful contemporary novel of the Virgin River #6 that featured three romances. The main storyline was of Shelby McIntyre and Luke Riordan...then it moves on to Walt Booth and Muriel and lastly Abby MacCall and Cameron Michaels. Be prepared for a read of not only romances that are going on in this small California town but where you will find the people will come together in sadness, in rescue times, along with plenty of babies being born, pregnancies, town near disaster, abuse, a homeless man with 'Down's Syndrome,' and a town drunk.

The characters were all well developed, believable and colorful bring out a well written read of suspense, humorous, tearful and even some sexy scenes that will keep you interested turning the pages to see what will happen nest.

I found "Temptation Ridge"a well written romance novel that I would definitely recommend to you as very good read.

Another excellent story!

This series is by far one of the best I've read, and this installment is no exception. I recommend starting at the beginning with Virgin River so that you can become familiar with all the characters and reading the books in chronological order. Top notch character development and plot lines. Every book in this series, including this one, is well worth the credit!

Absolutely Love..............

Any additional comments?

I have really enjoyed listening to this series. The narrator, Theresa Plummer, is the best narrator. Each character has there own voice and you can tell a difference between each character. I love the fact that each book keeps telling you about the past characters along with introducing new characters. I could listen to these books over and over again!!

Cute story

My first title by the author was Virgin River and I frankly liked that story better. Temptation Ridge is also a good story, but there are too many different stories put together in one book. There are several different side stories developed at the same time and for that reason the relationship between the main couple stays a bit superficial. All the stories are good, but I personally do not like the story to be fractured, I prefer to follow mostly one couple throughout the book.

At some points the story also tended to be just too cute and all the characters a bit too good and nice.

Overall I plan to buy more books by this author just because the stories are simple and relaxing. They make me feel good.

Would you consider the audio edition of Temptation Ridge to be better than the print version?
