VISION IN WHITE by Nora Roberts
Now this is a romance novel! VISION IN WHITE is the perfect mix of romance, both sweet and sexy. The characters are amazing. Mac and Carter and the sweetest couple; Carter being an adorable, clumsy, nerdy teacher, while Mac is a successful pulled together, yet relationship shy, wedding photographer. This book flows perfect from Mac's job to her personal life, and both sides are just as entertaining. VISION IN WHITE is both funny and sweet, with a bit of sexy, tender, classy, and warm all thrown in. The friendship of the "quartet" is a nice bonus to this book and I love the interaction between the 4 of them, but this story really makes you want to keep reading to get to the next encounter between Mac and Carter, which is always what you're wanting it to be, and more. This is a real romance novel, pure and wonderful, without any crap. It's what all romance novels should strive to be. A beautifully perfect story with amazing characters that make you want to read more and more. I loved this book, it's definitely a keeper, and I can't wait to read the others in this series. :)
