Mmmmm, soooo tasty. I heart this series. Born is the 25th book in J.D. Robb's Death Series. I effin highly recommend these books. Robb is the pseudonym for Nora Roberts. I can't tell you why she writes under a well known pen-name for this series and puts a silly pic of herself trying to look like a BA on the back, but I don't even care. This is fluff to the ult, and very satisfying. If you want to check out the series check here, but beware for spoilers!
So I'll give you a brief: Eve Dallas is a super hardcore cop in the future. She happens to be married to the most beautiful, rich and powerful man in the world Roarke. Yep, I know it's ridiculous, and yes, he only has one name. Deal with it. Anywho, her best friend is this popsinger (obviously, that makes perfect sense) and she's super knocked-up and about to have a baby and to top it all off there's this double murder case to solve. Throw in another missing pregnant broad and that's pretty much the book.
New readers would be able to jump in with this one and go with the flow. But why would you want to when you could start at the beginning and have 25 more books of a delicious calorie-free treat. Plus, it's worth it to read how Roarke and Eve met.
These books are full of plenty of good jokes, excellent cop work, futuristic gizmos and graphic sex fun. Did I mention it totally gets the Bee seal of approval? Because it totally does. That's what the Bee symbol in the top left corner means, highly approvicized by me. I will add this icon to those book that really rock my socks.
