Naked in Death by J.D. Robb
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
This book is pretty much entirely these two things:
A stereotypical boilerplate mystery featuring the now cliché female detective solving murders.
A romance with a rich, sensitive, perfectly loyal billionaire who is a person of interest.
Nothing much more than that, except... it's grounded in a near-future world with social advances, altered nation-states, and advanced computers, robots, etc.
Hmm. It kinda sounds like it's kinda... tame... right?
But that's just it. It IS extremely comfortable. A popcorn read. Fast-paced, pushing all the right buttons including those of dark histories and working through the issues, vicarious hot sex scenes, and the requisite near-holy homage to coffee.
I had a delightfully good time with this. Like sitting down to an old favorite meal I've had two thousand times already. But it just TASTES SO GOOD. I'm very likely to continue this. It's absolutely a fun piece of fluff.
