Review

Nobody's Business is a compelling tale addressing modern day themes - war, injury, death, and recovery.  The reader will root for Doug in his quest to romance the reluctant Lyn, and Lyn's gradual awakening from grief and isolation is well told, with emotion and nuance.  Doug's conflict over his feelings for Lyn versus his mining her for information about her life adds to the story's depth.  Readers will thoroughly enjoy a tale about two individuals who are so different from each other, yet their life trajectories bring them together with an unforgettable impact.  Another 5 star read from Gina Ardito! -- InD'Tale Magazine (For full review, go to indtale.com/reviews/nobody's-business)

I really liked the simplicity of this installment in the Nobody Romances. Even though the romance within the last few chapters seems a little rushed, it is a good read nonetheless. I like how the story captures highlights of its predecessor while taking on an attitude of its own. I wish that there was more detail given to some of the characters listed in this book. I think it would have added some more value to the intensity and strength of this novel. Yet, as I stated previously, simplicity is really nice and makes this story unique. The chronicles of a woman scorned by vulnerability to only find it again for good is quite intriguing. Can't wait to dig into the next installment!

This was a good read, really good at the start but then I felt it was way too short, not detailing the characters or the story enough. There were several relationships developing during the course of the book but none of them were really explored like I wish they had been. Especially the main one. A great build up and then boom! they were in love (kind of like after one short date and a walk in town). Would have loved to explore them more and also the snowboarder and the daughter.

I'm no fan of romance novels, but this title caught my attention because of the veteran amputees angle. Lyn, a former Olympic skier whose husband died of cancer has retired from public life. To honor her late husband, also a champion skier, she opens a B&B in a ski area and, with the help of an amputee, opens a skiing rehab center for amputee vets called Ski-Hab.

Enter Mr. Uh-Oh. Doug is a sports reporter who went to Iraq for a story. The humvee he was in blew up and he was the only survivor, minus his right/dominant arm. He is the first non-vet to enter the Ski-Hab program.

The tension comes from Doug wanting a "where is she now" story about the former Olympian, and her horror of any publicity. They're hiding these major secrets from one another while falling in love (in one week!). The secrets were a stretch for me; I would have blurted them out. But if you're a romance fan, there is a decent amount of tension build-up before they manage to fall into each other's arms/arm.

The author is a solid writer, not much corny stuff or overused cliches. I was confused as to whether Lyn had one sister or two -- ultimately, two. I would recommend this book to romance readers who like a clean read with little over-sentimentality.

What a heartwarming tale. Ms Ardito weaves this love story with an expert hand. While the hero is an injured war hero, we quickly see him as more than just someone to feel sorry for. He's determined to rebuild his life like any other normal person. The heroine also has her scars, but hers are on the inside and Doug patiently uncovers them, until Lyn is free of her pain. A truly satisfying read that leaves the reader feeling good.

Just as wonderful as the first novel in the series: Nobody's Darling! I could not put the book down. I didn't even turn the television on until after the last page was read. I've already purchased and will be reading the next book of the series (Nobody's Perfect) tomorrow! Job well done Gina!

I really liked this book except for one thing. The heroine, Brooklyn Raine, a former ski champion is described as being tiny, while the hero, Doug is well over six feet tall. Brooklyn herself even mentions that Doug is about fourteen inches taller than she is. My husband of many years is about eight inches taller than I am, and that's about the height difference I am comfortable with. But that's just me. Now back to Nobody's Business. I got this book at my local library and it was an enjoyable read. Brooklyn is keeping secrets because of the pain she suffered at the death of her husband, also a ski champion. She has made a new life for herself and she shuns the spotlight. Doug Sawyer has his own secrets - he is a former sports writer and once he finds out who Brooklyn is he wants to shine the spotlight on her and her work with the Ski-Hab program. Doug sees a chance to revive his career with the story. Brooklyn wants to keep her part in the Ski-Hab program a secret. Both of them pass up the opportunity to tell the other who they are and lay their cards on the table, leading to a mix-up that could end things for them. Ms. Ardito weaves a satisfying story and ties everything up nicely. I look forward to the final book in the series and to further books by this author.

I read the first "Nobody's" story in the series and enjoyed it very much. So I figured why not continue? I'm glad I did! A completely heartwarming story, that made me tear up near the end. The only thing I would have liked would have been a small epilogue to wrap up the story a bit.

Yes, I liked this book, as well as the other two in the series, so far. What I DIDN'T like is the abrupt ending with very few loose ends tied off. Usually, a writer in this genre will include an Epilogue that sorts out any leftover issues. I've read quite a few by the author and she doesn't usually stop so abruptly. Good read, way too short but good for a quick fix of romance.
