Unexpected – An RNAA Recommended Read

 

 

 

 

Romance Novel Addicts Anonymous Book Recommendation by: Linda Fausnet

Genre: Contemporary, Rock Star, Single Parent Romance

My Thoughts on the Book:

Books like these are a dying breed these days. Like many readers, I’ve started to become accustomed to (resigned to..?) the “churn and burn” of  Amazon where authors are financially rewarded for writing as fast as humanly possible. This book doesn’t read like somebody just slapped it together. This author took her time, actually taking you through the emotions and situations of the characters while artfully describing sights, smells, and FEELS like authors used to do. The heroine, Ava, has been through tremendous hardship, including several deaths in her family as well as dealing with extreme poverty bordering on homelessness. Whit is a rich rock star who isn’t able to live a real rock star life due to his being a devoted single parent. We aren’t simply told these things by the author, we are shown them. The author also paints a realistic portrait of poverty without glossing over the “Cinderella” nature of this tale. I highly recommend this steamy, emotional, romantic tale with a HEA!

Draikana’s Fire – An RNAA Recommended Read

 

 

 

 

Romance Novel Addicts Anonymous Book Recommendation by:  Linda Fausnet

Genre: Paranormal Shifter Romance

My Thoughts on the Book:

This is the story of dragon-shifter Daphne Drak who finally finds her mate after thousands of years, and she and Everett must fight to save Daphne’s sister who has been kidnapped by the arch-nemesis of the Drakaina. This was an entirely new author to me.  I don’t read many shifter books, but I did enjoy this one. The worldbuilding was well-done and not complicated, which I liked. I don’t know anything about how the military works, but it felt like the author did because the scenes with the military officers seemed authentic, which was nice. Overall a well-written story and a quick, enjoyable read.

Chasing After Forever – An RNAA Recommended Read


Romance Novel Addicts Anonymous Book Recommendation by: Linda Fausnet

Genre: Small town, Contemporary, Billionaire Romance

My Thoughts on the Book:

I’m a sucker for a good “good guy” romance, and this certainly is one! This was the first book I’ve read in this series, and it works perfectly well as a standalone. Liam is a wonderfully dreamy hero (I can’t stand cocky alphas, alphaholes, or bad boys, so I was all about this guy…) Macy is a strong, independent heroine, which I also love. She’s been hurt in the past, which makes it hard for her to trust anyone. I’ve seen the “afraid to love because I’ve been hurt/abandoned” done before, but rarely is it done as well as this book. With other similar stories, I’ve found myself rolling my eyes as the heroine contemplates leaving the perfect guy for no real reason. Here, we feel Macy’s pain and understand her struggles. I also appreciated the way this book didn’t promote the “all small town folk are great and big city people are evil” stereotype. This book was a refreshing read all over. Low on angst, high on heart, I highly recommend Chasing After Forever!

Rocked – An RNAA Recommended Read

Romance Novel Addicts Anonymous Book Recommendation by: Linda Fausnet

Romance Genre and /or Romance Subgenre: Romantic Comedy, Friends-to-Lovers, Brother’s Best Friend

My Thoughts on This Book:

This is the second book (but works as a standalone, too) in a series revolving around Woody O’Flanagan’s pub….and male strip club. Rocked is a terrific, cute, funny, and sexy friends to lovers story as well as a forbidden, best friend’s brother romance. It even had a cute surprise twist involving the hero’s family history there toward the end. Seth is sweet and sexy and impossible not to love. I especially liked the way he was a heterosexual stripper but had no problem stripping for the fellas on the pub’s men’s night. The stripper scenes were particularly vivid and entertaining. Looking forward to more in the series!

What’s Italian for Yummy? An RNAA Recommended Read

Romance Novel Addicts Anonymous Book Recommendation by: Linda Fausnet

Genre: Contemporary Romance

My Thoughts on the Book:

This was a highly entertaining, sexy book containing sensual descriptions of both food and sex. The main conflict revolves around a woman who hates rugby (and comes by her distaste honestly, given her personal experiences) and a hero who plays…guess what? It was cleverly written with lots of witty banter between the romantic leads. I’ve read so many books lately that seemed like they were written in an awful hurry, and it was refreshing to read a book from an author who clearly took her time and actually thought about what she was writing. She clearly knows what she’s talking about, both with the heroine’s expertise in baking and with the locations in Rome. The book is definitely on the longer side, but it didn’t really drag. It’s not a book that you might finish quickly, but one that’s meant to be savored.

Whiskey Home – An RNAA Recommended Read

 

Romance Novel Addicts Anonymous Book Recommendation by: Linda Fausnet

Genre: Romantic Suspense

My Thoughts on the Book:

This was a terrific read from beginning to end! It’s filled with suspense, steamy romance, protective heroes, and imparts an emotionally satisfying message about the true meaning of family. There were several times I teared up – in a good way!   Whiskey Home is a wonderful beginning to a new series. No cliffhangers, but plenty of hints as to what’s to come in future books. Highly recommended!

Whisper – An RNAA Recommended Read

Romance Novel Addicts Anonymous Book Recommendation by: Maxine Keith

Genre: Dark Romance

My Thoughts on the Book:

This book is not for the weak.

If you need a trigger warning, do not read this book.

But for those of you brave warriors who look evil in the face, and love with your whole heart, this book is a journey.

I’ve been a fan of R.C.Christiansen for a while. I’ve read every book. And I always felt she held back just a little…. Until now.

Whisper is the story I knew she could write. The dark and painful story of three forgotten souls looking for a home. You will hope for them, you will cry for them. You’ll become as angry as Ken, as silent as Cliffy, and as broken as Verna. You’ll hide in the basement with them and dance on the clouds. It’s a story that will leave a scar. But it is the most honest and real book I’ve read.

Ties That Bind Us – An RNAA Recommended Read

Romance Novel Addicts Anonymous Book Recommendation by: Maxine Keith

Genre: Contemporary Romance

My Thoughts on the Book:

An unexpected story of accepting your flaws and learning to love. None of us is perfect but when you’re taught that your existence doesn’t matter, it’s hard to learn that you can be loved. But that’s what Jaxon tries to teach Cam. While both characters are broken, their shattered pieces fit together well. It’s a wonderful romance with a few steamy scenes and a ton of melt your heart moments. I only had two issues. 1) it’s a cliffhanger. 2) it’s written in dual single POV. But the story is sound and wonderful. A great read! Highly recommend it.

The Sandman – An RNAA Recommended Read

 

Romance Novel Addicts Anonymous Book Recommendation by: Maxine Keith

Genre: Paranormal Romance

My Thoughts on the Book:

While I’m not a fan of duel, single POV, the concept of this book gripped me quickly. I loved the slow burn and build up of their relationship. I was intoxicated by the sacrifice. I’d love to have a reaper of my own.

Antidote – An RNAA Recommended Read

Romance Novel Addicts Anonymous Book Recommendation by: Maxine Keith

Genre: Dark Romance

My Thoughts on the Book:

If you’ve ever dreamed of being an outlaw, of living on the dark side, this book is for you. Strong characters, badass chicks, a family closer than just blood. Reading Antidote took me to places I hadn’t thought about in years. Siblings that fight for each other as much as they fight with each other. A family no one wants to mess with. A love that even the most screwed up mind can understand. Trigger warnings abound and an ending that leaves you breathless, but a roller coaster ride into a world without limits and laws. It’s not a Hallmark story, but it’s as raw and pure a love  story as I’ve ever read.
