RULES OF THE GAME is a great story and features Brooke Gordon and Parks Jones, both strong willed and sure of themselves. Parks is a major league baseball player who is cast in a series of men's clothing commercials, which will be directed by Brook. Sparks fly between these two from the first moment their eyes meet. Their entire courtship (it's a romance, you knew there would be one!) is composed of battles between these two dynamic people. The story line will make you laugh and sigh -- it's filled with romance, humor and a few stressful situations that will get your blood pumping.
Some of the sub-plots are predictable as seen with many of Nora Roberts's earlier books, but that doesn't lessen the overall impact RULES OF THE GAME has on the reader. The tale has a storybook / fairy tale theme with a few twists and turns along the way. Not only does Roberts give the reader a peek into the commercial business, but also that of major league sports. But more importantly, Nora Roberts shows that a career woman can have it all without giving anything up -- she can have a great job and a fantastic love life. And a strong willed man can have the love of his life in a person who keeps him on his toes and doesn't cow-tail to his every whim.
This is definitely an enjoyable way to spend a few hours.
