Book Review: "What She Wants" by Sheila Roberts
What do women want? — Jonathan Templar and his poker buddies can't figure it out. Take Jonathan, for instance. He's been in love with Lissa Castle since they were kids but, geek that he is, she's never seen him as her Mr. Perfect. He has one last shot -- their high school reunion. Kyle Long is equally discouraged. The pretty reception... more »ist at his office keeps passing him over for other guys who may be taller but are definitely not superior. And Adam Edwards might be the most successful of Jonathan's friends, but he isn't having any success on the home front. His wife's kicked him out.
When Jonathan stumbles on a romance novel at the Icicle Falls library sale, he knows he's found the love expert he's been seeking -- Vanessa Valentine, top-selling romance author. At first his buddies laugh at him for reading romance novels, but soon they, too, realize that these stories are the world's best textbooks on love. Poker night becomes book club night…and when all is read and done, they're going to be the kind of men women want!
This is the third book in the "Icicle Falls" series. The other books are: "Better Than Chocolate" and "Merry X-Mas". This one could very well be my favorite in the series. I think it could probably be a stand alone book as well. There are a couple of mentions about the past main characters, but it still works as a series book as well.
I loved the 'guys'. And Adam - he was my favorite I think... The things he was doing to get a back with his wife... OY! Made me laugh! Jonathan was another favorite. I was rooting for him. Wasn't sure if it would work out or not.. But I won't spoil anything for you.
If you are looking for a nice light book/series - give this a try. I love Sheila Roberts' book. They are quick to read because you don't want to put them down!!!
I am proud to say I received this because I am a "Sheila Girl."
