    One Reply to “Naked in Death”

    1. This is the first J.D. Robb/Nora Roberts book I have read. I have read glowing reviews about the series, but I was a bit hesistant to start a commitment to it (which, looking it up on , will be really darn long!). But then, I have come upon a verse from one of the books:"Oh, but it is you, darling Eve. Just as that taste is you, the smell, the look, the sound. You've undone me."- Glory in Death.I think it was devastatingly beautiful! The object of Eve's undoing piqued my interest, so I went on a [...]

    2. and I was enjoying it up until too swift of a turn into Romancelandia.The popularity of Naked in Death is completely understandable to me. The attraction here is the same as in the most of urban fantasy IMO. Mystery-solving, some world-building (in this case, futuristic instead of paranormal) - it all is only background noise. What you are actually anticipating is the heroine's hookup with some handsome hunk. (That's what I read urban fantasy for anyway.) And the hunk here is something special - [...]

    3. 4 StarsThis was solid.Fast paced.Sexy.Fun.And old.Seriously though, there are, what, only 40 thousand books in the series after this one? LolRegardless, I see why - I have not a damn thing to add to the multitude of reviews on this - and I look forward to the next one.

    4. 4 STARSI’d been postponing reading this series for a long time and I’m so glad I finally caved because it was right up my alley. The thing is, I love murder mysteries and crime-solving books with a touch of romance but the futuristic aspect? Sorry, not my jam. I don’t like anything futuristic/sci-fi/fantasy related. I never connect to such stories. I don’t know why. Maybe I’m unimaginative and dull. Maybe they scare me.It’s stupid, I know, but look at it this way. How much older am I [...]

    5. 5+ stars – Romantic SuspenseYes! I've finally read the first book in J.D. Robb's, aka Nora Roberts', vastly popular In Death series, and now I understand why there's 30 books and counting'cause it's an awesome romantic suspense/futuristic mystery thriller and very addictive. In fact, it's a good thing that I brought the first three books with me on my trip since I wanted to immediately jump into the second book after finishing this. I loved it! And all the flattering Roarke talk is totally jus [...]

    6. I started this series with a bit of trepidation back in 2015. I knew that JD Robb also wrote as Nora Roberts and I had read another book by Ms Roberts and hated it so I was a bit wary about starting the In Death books. But I had heard great things about Roarke. Another reason that put me off reading this series is because he is Irish and, being Irish, if it is not done right, it drives me nuts. But she pulled it off. He is perfection. I am already up to book 19 but decided to head back to book [...]

    7. 4 Stars - Also reviewed at: Lady Jayne's Reading DenOkay, here’s the quick and dirty well, sort of. Naked In Death is the first book in the daunting (almost 40 books!! and still growing) “In Death” series by Nora Roberts, writing as J.D. Robb. I kept putting off reading it, for that very reason. Though, after recent reviews by friends who have joined the growing legion of “Roarke Groupies”, I was most curious to read this book to find out for myself what the fuss is over Roarke. While [...]

    8. Reviewed by: Rabid Reads3.5 starsFor those of you who don't already know, J.D. Robb is an alternate pen name for Nora Roberts. I only read my first Nora Roberts' book about a year ago, and was--to put it mildly--pleasantly surprised. I'd always assumed that Roberts wrote cornball Walmart-paperback-romances for-your-grandmother, and when I saw a new book with "Witch" in the title, I figured she had jumped on the paranormal train, but was curious enough to check it out.It was kind of amazing.And w [...]

    9. I finally get to cross this one off my TBR shelf - and I quite enjoyed it!! :)For being written in the 90s, this holds up pretty darn well. In a way, there may not be a whole lot of uniqueness going on - it's a cop murder mystery - but it flows quite well and kept my interest. I grew to like Eve, the police lieutenant, and Roarke, the roguish millionaire (billionaire?) who is more complicated and interesting than he first appears.I am definitely interested in continuing the series. It's only a t [...]

    10. 5 I Should Have Read This Sooner StarsSo, I started this book 4 days ago and now I'm already reading book 4 so you can guess that I loved this, the book and the series so far.The first book was great. It had everything, a kick-ass heroine with a bad past, a powerful, slightly shady and richer than Midas hero, a great mystery and a serial killer, all that set in a futuristic world which was surprisingly well thought and realistic for a book written 20 years ago when even cell phones were a rarity [...]

    11. I see why Nora Roberts wrote under a different name for this mystery series because, even though there is a romantic element, this book is so much more than that. If they all follow a similar pattern, then I can also see the In Death series fast becoming a favourite. It was an interesting, disturbing, thought-provoking read with a very sweet and sexy romantic subplot.There are three key elements that make up this novel and make it the triumph that it is: a psychological murder mystery, a slowly [...]

    12. Spectacular!!!5 stars! No, wait! 5+++++ Amazing, Thrilling, Provocative Stars!The Story - Naked in Death is the first book in J.D. Robb’s insanely popular In Death series. It’s a fantastic mystery thriller and once I started, I couldn't put it downrrturn it off! It is the year 2058, and technology now completely rules the world. But New York City Detective Eve Dallas knows that the irresistible impulses of the human heart are still ruled by just one thing-passion. When a senator's daughter i [...]

    13. This is a book that was written over 20 years ago, but is set in the future. And, you can tell. I don't know why, but it just feels like it was written a while backeat prediction, Jetsons. It's called a "roomba" and doesn't wear an apronBut, I still liked all of the futuristic stuff in the story - it was fun! There was the "AutoChef" that made you food, a floating mattress - I'm thinking that would be soft and comfy, flying cars - I've been waiting forever for one of these!, tubes of Pepsi - I d [...]

    14. OMG I'm melting in here ROARKE!!! Ladies, don't you ever forget this name!!! You have to meet this guy. Yeah, seriously. :D He's hot, he's smart, he's funny but the most important thing is he's so freaking HOT! Loved him a lot. :D And Eve Dallas Damn, what a strong lady. I loved her too :)I will definitely continue to read their story:)Whenever I read Roarke's words This is exactly me. :D------------------“I can't tell you how aroused it makes me when you quote codes, lieutenant.” "I don't l [...]

    15. I liked this as a mystery just as much as I liked it as a romance. Love a good mystery that keeps me guessing. I had my ideas about who the culprit was, and I was more or less right, although I had that kernel of doubt. I liked how this was a very well-plotted mystery. I think that it helped that the underlying aspects were so dark that I didn't think the story would go there. Eve is a great protagonist. She's tough, intelligent, but vulnerable in some ways. She's a very good cop, and she goes a [...]

    16. ★★★★★ 5 Suspense-Filled stars ★★★★★Its true in all my reading time,I've never really picked up a Nora Robertso far.Its true in this case I did judge the book by its cover.Every time I passed a book store to pick up my reads I always tended to shy away from the Pure Romance section,and chose Mystery-Romance Or Erotica-Romance or another combination over Chic-lite or Angst.After all there was always next month.And when I heard J.D Robb was an Alias of Nora Robert.I was quite ex [...]

    17. I had never read a single book in this series. Fans know there are a great many of them now. I read the synopis on the back of the book and was instantly put off by the futuristic setting. I really don't like Science fiction and anything set in the future. History is my big thing. But, I kept hearing how good these books were, so I picked up a used copy of the first one and could not put it down. Now, if you have read Nora Roberts and think this is some extension of her other stuff, think again. [...]

    18. 2 stars Unfortunately this book just wasn't for me. It started out strong, but by the last 100 pages I no longer cared what happened to the characters. I've never been a huge Nora Robert's fan, I find her romance too cheesy/formulaic for my taste. But I wanted to give this series a chance.I happen to be in a reading/reviewing slump, it's hard for me to review book that were just "meh" for me. So I'm going to break this down.What didn't work:-the plot: it was all over the place, half romance half [...]

    19. Suspense – 5 stars / Romance – 3 starsWhat could I say about this book to sound fancy?Nothing. You said it all.Why did I wait so long to start this series? -> How original?I can’t believe this book was written more than 20 years ago! -> Never heard it before?Blah blah blahI liked it. Crime and suspense were written brilliantly. I cracked the secret/suspense at approx 60% *pat myself on the back* As to the romance part – I’m not sure. I expected the heroine being bigger badass, an [...]

    20. I feel slightly embarrassed to admit I absolutely loved this. A great combination of romance and crime. I really liked the fact that Roarke was completely into Eve from the first time he met her. I really enjoyed the slight sci fi elements too. So pleased to see there are many in the series as they are perfect as a light read. I just hope they don't become too formulaic.Recommended.

    21. *Originally read 12/10/10 - 12/11/10*I've known about this series for quite a while, and I'm a big Nora Roberts fan, but I hadn't really wanted to pick this series up. There's about a billion books out in the series. What if I ended up loving it? Then I have to commit myself to buying those billion books just to catch up! But after hearing such glowing things about this series from most of my friends--especially about Roarke--I had to finally bight the bullet and get the first book. Now that I' [...]

    22. I loved Naked in Death which is book #1 in the In Death Series by J.D. Robb. As I write this I can say I loved book #2 as well (I’ll be writing a short review soon). And I am on to book #3 and loving it already. A lot of love going on here but rightfully so. I sure hope it continues through the 40 or so books within this series. YES I said 40!! I am anxious to see how J.D. Robb will pull off keeping her readers engaged. I will say the writing is fantastic. The characters are intriguing and fas [...]

    23. This is a reread for me but the last time I read it was probably 1998 or thereabouts. It was such a delight to read it again. When J.D. Robb wrote this first book in what was then going to be just a trilogy I wonder if she had any idea of what she had created. 40 or so books later we all feel we own a little bit of Eve and Roarke and their amazing world and we are always waiting for more!I love Naked in Death. It introduces us to our two most important characters, begins their delightful relatio [...]

    24. I am addicted to this series, I absolutely love it, and it gets better as it goes along (I'm on book 5 now).It's romance/mystery, so if you like a splash of sex with your serial killers, this is the series for you!!

    25. 4.5 starsI’ve done with this series something I’ve never done before, jumped right in with the latest installment and skipped everything that came before. I soon realized my mistake, though. While each book can easily function as a standalone, missing even a word of this enchanting series is a crime. So here I am, going back to the beginning, meeting Eve and Roarke in their early days and sharing their journey from the start. Naked in Death was first released in 1995, but it’s still fresh [...]

    26. There are a lot of great reviews for this book so I'll be short. Considering the year it was written, the futuristic aspects were good. Murder mystery was okay. What I didn't like was the romance part. I am very easy to sell on couples and love stories. Just gimme some steam and sappy thoughts, and put the couple together in an okay way and I'm rooting for them. Here, I just couldn't root for the romance. Heroine was too robotic or too indistinct in that setting. Still, I enjoyed the book and wi [...]

    27. Lieutenant Eve Dallas had been on the force for ten years and in that time had seen it all – or so she thought. But when she was called into a Code Five – highly sensitive, no media output – the disgust had her stomach clenching. But find the killer she wouldHigh on her list of suspects was a man she hadn’t come across before – Roarke, a handsome Irish billionaire – and she was drawn to him; him to her. But it went against everything Eve was to succumb to his charms; especially in th [...]

    28. This book was awesome! It's my first Roberts/Robb book and I have to say, it won't be my last. This series has everything I was looking for: action, mystery, bad ass female protagonist, a ridiculously sexi guy (AKA Roarke) and a unique setting.I loved Eve and Roarke together. I love how they are both strongminded and yet find a way to work through that, I love how Roarke isn't willing to take Eve's crap and how she got to grow and accept her past through her relationship with him. This book was [...]

    29. Let’s try again…You’ve got to love a prolific writer. If you’re fortunate enough, you might even find a good prolific writer. Nora Roberts/J.D. Robb is one of the best. There is one problem though…it’s expensive to become a fan. It can be intimidating to find an author that is already established. In the case of J.D. Robb, we’re talking about a series that is heading towards 45 books ALREADY. That is a lot of moola, and when you’re at #1 it can even put you off starting the serie [...]

    30. Bütün yıldızlarım Roarke için, puan verirken çok taraflı davrandım, uyarayım.İlk kez polisiye okurken, gözümden kalpler çıkardım 😍😍 Tabii ki tek sebebi Roarke aşkım ♥️♥️ Gözüm ne katil gördü, ne cinayet. Adam konuya girdiği anda oturduğum odada rüzgar esti resmen. Onun olduğu diyalogları büyülenmiş gibi sırıtarak okuduğumu fark ettim bir süre sonra. Uzun zamandır (sanırım Gideon Cross’tan beri) böyle bir karakter okumamıştım. Kadın ya da [...]
