  3. When I read Judith McNaught I feel like I m transferred to some other dimension So you have this huge 500 pages long book with pitiful title and a truly awful cover and yet I very much think about when it s the right time to start reading it, because her books consummate my time completely I sincerely cannot think about anything else It s drastic and extreme and I tell myself that during my weekends when I have enough time to go for a walk or for a swim because the sea is still very warm or to s [...]

  5. I adored Jordan Townsend and Alexandra Lawrence Something Wonderful was a perfect blend of angst and romance It is truly a beautiful love story I loved it

  6. Ahhhhhh Loved this one This was definitely better than Once and Always I liked Alex better and Jordan was definitely romantic than Jason As per usual, Alexandra is the typical McNaught special snowflake heroine I m not complaining though because I personally liked her character Jordanghhe s definitely a typical emotionally scarred McNaught hero but he isn t cruel or abusive Loved the humor, the chemistry between the main characters and the secondary characters Definitely worth the re read.

  7. 5 STARS image error Let me just start out by saying that no book has had a appropriate title And I must add that every single Judith McNaught book that I ve read could have been titled the same I absolutely loved this These two characters, Jordan Townsend and Alexandra Lawrence are the perfect blending of angst and love And the old adage that opposites attract could not be represented in a better way image error Jordan Addison Matthew Townsend was an only child, and heir to his father s title a [...]

  10. Why oh why have I not read historical romance novels Being only my second HR Something Wonderful was just that, something wonderful This story had me captivated right from the beginning I quickly found myself submerged into the world of the characters and experiencing something different.I truly loved Jordan and Alexandra s story I guess you could say it was love at first sight for Alexandra It may have been because she was na ve but I would like to believe it was because her heart was pure Jor [...]

  12. The memorable parts You lost the fish That was not a fish, Jordan retorted, looking up at her That was a whale with large teeth Only because it got away, she retorted, laughing.Her laughter was as infectious as her enthusiasm, and Jordan couldn t stop himself from grinning even though he tried to sound stern Kindly stop belittling my whale and let s open those baskets I m starved Goaded by her insinuation that he possessed no imagination, Jordan narrowed his eyes and stared hard and then he fina [...]

  15. Listen to me, Jordan begged urgently, somehow convinced that she would stay alive if she understood how much she meant to him Listen to what my life was like before you hurtled into it wearing that suit of armor Life was empty Colorless And then you happened to me, and suddenly I felt feelings I never believed existed, and I saw things I d never seen before You don t believe that, do you, darling But it s true, and I can prove it His deep voice ragged with unshed tears, Jordan recited his proof [...]

  16. I read almost all of Judith McNaught s novels but Something Wonderful is definitely my favorite I ve read this book for, like, 10 times and every time I read it, it always feels like it s my first time I totally fell in love with the story and the characters.There s this one scene when Alexandra got shot and Jordan thought she would die, the words Jordan uttered just give me pinches in my heart every time I m not a cry baby but I was picturing this scene in my head, and I felt a lump in my throa [...]

  17. Recommended by a friend, I think these stories are funny Meandering and lacking any real oomph, it is amusing to read about 18th century life I m not a feminist, so the carry on doesn t bother me, but these stories are extremely light I was a little bored throughout, and I have to say the heroine is that what they are called in this genre is always childlike at first, and always blooms beautifully by the end The Duke, endlessly handsome and oh so gruff Even his handsomeness didn t really want me [...]

  18. My review contains spoilers and they re mostly my thoughts as I went with the book This one s got 3 parts.After my 2nd reading of the bookI remember being annoyed by a few things when I first read this book, hence the 4 stars rating But this reading is proving to be quite different and no matter what, I m liking it so far.Jordan is a duke and living a duke s lifestyle But, his teenage life show us a life full of debauchery by his parents numerous affairs and stuffs which turned him into a cynica [...]

  19. This Was Wonderful I read this for the first time over a decade ago, and I have to say I feel like a fangirl right now Squee and all I actually jumped up and cheered when something was revealed at the end I had thought I remembered correctly about that certain somethingbut when I was almost to page 400 and it still hadn t happenedI began to doubt myself and can t tell you how relieved I was that my memory didn t completely fail me Saved my 5 review Dang McNaught knows her stuff She gives you pie [...]

  21. Isn t it funny how you feel for a romance novel when you first start reading romance and then three years later, when you read it again My Reactions First Time sigh He grovelled Oh how he grovelled So beautiful.Three years Later What on earth did I ever see in a sort of but not bipolar hero who cannot make up his mind and thinks it is alright to sleep around and pull your wife s hair

  22. This book was an epic story of two very different personalities who by circumstances find that they must marry MILD SPOILERS AHEAD The hero has very little to redeem himself here as he is your basic entitled gentleman who does nothing but sleep around and party Along come a waif with big blue eyes to save his miserable life no once but 3 times throughout the book She is just about the most loving forgiving person ever She needed and deserved a better hero and only at the very end does she get th [...]

  23. Every once in a while, a 5 star book comes along that makes me want to go through all my other 5 star ratings and demote them, because they weren t as perfect, as beautiful, as heart warming as this one Something Wonderful is one such story, and I m so glad I own a physical copy of it because I m sure I ll be rereading it for many years to come.

  24. Escapism at its best Fans of Judith McNaught will be glad to meet a new cast of her wonderfully developed characters, her disarming humor, and of course all the melodrama As usual, we have the cynical, wealthy, uber alpha, devastatingly handsome rake who meets the idealistic, penniless, beautiful, witty young country girl And unfortunately, the author returns to her favorite plot device of the Big Huge Misunderstanding although in this book, there is an element of suspense added so that we get [...]

  25. Oh my goodness Some books are great because of the plot, the suspense, the characters We who wallow in Romancelandia and HarleyLand can love, hate or despair of any of the above A strong 3.5.The something wonderful in SW is definitely the heroine Sweet and whimsical, Alexandra could fall into Mary Sue territory all too easily, but no She s charming and adorable without being cutesy Was it saving the hero dressed as a knight, staring down the H s Dowager Duchess grandmother, or almost beating the [...]

  28. Overall rating 4.5 Princess stars Triggers Cheating view spoiler No view spoiler I will tell you that you are led to believe in the beginning of this story that the hero visits his mistress and assumptions are made at that point that Jordan did, in fact, sleep with his mistress after marrying Alexandra, but at the end after he finds out that she thinks this he tells her that he did not sleep with her You actually don t see him with any other woman in this whole book and the mistress mentioned ag [...]
