The Girl He Wants
Category : Reviews
It’s tempting to ignore your heart . . .
Boutique owner Jayne Grandberry may be great at getting customers to treat themselves, but she’s even better at resisting her own desires. For her, love is like a sinfully rich dessert—a fleeting pleasure that will just make her crash in the long run. She has no time for such distractions, especially since she’s trying to open up a second shop in Atlanta. But she finds herself tempted like never before when her friends set her up with Stacy Cunningham.
A financial wizard, Stacy gives off a definite nerdy vibe, but he has skills that a businesswoman like Jayne can appreciate—and an indulgent one-night stand shows her a wildly different side of him. There’s nowhere for them to go from there, since Stacy, a single father, has complicated written all over him. But he’s not willing to settle for second best. And he’ll have to wait for Jayne to discover what he’s known all along: that when you open your heart to love, there will be room in your life for anything . . .
Genre: Romance – Contemporary, Comedy
Part of a Series: Yes – Book 3 of the No Strings Attached Series
Steam level: Warm – nothing explicit, just implied
I’m on the fence about this book. On the one hand it has a great message of overcoming your fears and opening yourself to love. On the other hand, it took a REALLY long time to get there. A huge plus for this book is that it’s funny. I found myself giggling about the play on Jayne’s name and the early learn-to-read Jane books and the fortunes were hilarious. The humor was both understated and outright silly and completely made this book for me. I’d love to see more of these characters in books to come and am definitely interested in reading the first two books in this series.
I received an Advance copy of this book for free from the author/publisher via NetGalley. I’m voluntarily leaving an honest review.
