Dream a Little Dream – An RNAA Recommended Read

Romance Novel Addicts Anonymous Book Recommendation by: Lila Dawes


Genre: Contemporary Romance

My Thoughts on the Book:

This is one of my favourite books that I reread over and over again! It’s so beautifully written and has some fantastic emotional scenes that help you identify with the damaged characters and champion their development and relationship. The heroine, Rachel, is a young, widowed mother with nothing left to lose and in desperate need of a job when she stumbles across our hero, Gabe, who’s painful past has left him cold and broken. The last thing he needs is this beautiful, defensive, sassy mouthed woman and her child invading his life but he needs help renovating the drive-in. Plenty of verbal sparring and heated romance ensues along with an equally intriguing secondary love story which the author does brilliantly. If you love your characters being put through hell and fighting love every step of the way then this is for you! This is part of the Chicago Stars series but can be read as a stand-alone.

Pursued – An RNAA Recommended Read

Romance Novel Addicts Anonymous Book Recommendation by: Tiffany Winters


Genre: Paranormal Romance / Vampire Romance


My Thoughts on the Book: It’s the first in her new series of vampire mafia romances about Gabriel, the heir to the Vampire Syndicate mafia and his love Mila, who ran away from him years ago under mysterious circumstances. When she returns he has every reason not to trust her. Thus begins an intriguing reaquaintance that kept me up late reading for more than one night. The story is thrilling and unexpected and the characters have great chemistry. If you aren’t into steamy romance then this isn’t for you. I loved how well written it was and the fact that the story moves along quickly. Just like Gabriel and Mila, the reader won’t really know who to trust. I thought it was awesome!

Share My World – An RNAA Recommended Read

Romance Novel Addicts Anonymous Book Recommendation by: Linda Fausnet


Genre: Second Chance Romance

My Thoughts on the Book: This is a second chance romance for a couple who met as teenagers at the beach and then reconnected years later. The book deals well with issues like grief and how cheating has a painful effect on family dynamics (no cheating by the hero or heroine though!). Both the hero and heroine had relationships fall through, losing stepchildren-to-be in the process. It’s a sweet story with some quick, steamy scenes. Lovely book about love and life and second chance romance.

Accidental Love – An RNAA Recommended Read

Romance Novel Addicts Anonymous Book Recommendation by: Linda Fausnet

Genre: Contemporary Romance, Fake Marriage Romance

My Thoughts on the Book: As an author myself, I am currently trying to read as many “popular” and “tropy” books right now as I can. I’m still trying to figure out that balance between writing what I love and writing to actually turn a decent profit. As part of that, I’m currently reading a bunch of “fake fiancee” books. I get frustrated with books that seem to be “paint-by-numbers” books that take a popular trope, stick some basic characters in there, and it’s a license to print money.  As much as I might hate it, that tactic WORKS. Fake fiancé books seem to always be successful, no matter the quality of the writing. I picked up Accidental Love and was prepared to dislike it. Then I read the preface and was prepared to hate it. In the first page, it became clear that this book wasn’t just going to capitialize on ONE trope. I counted four. On the FIRST PAGE. Fake fiancé, brother’s best friend, second chance, and secret baby.  I promised myself that I could just skim the pages if I got too annoyed, taking what I learned from the book, and then move on. That proved completely unecessary, as the book sucked me in immediately. Wyatt and Sinclair were utterly engaging characters from the start, and I found myself rooting for them straight away. They were very young when they first fell in love, and then Wyatt went away for ten years to join the military and to escape his abusive family. Sinclair was pregnant but he didn’t know it. Ten years later, he comes back and fake marries Sinclair in order to save the family farm. I give credit to the author for coming up with a more plausible reason for the fake marriage than many others I’ve read. The stipulations were written in the 1800s when it made sense for you to have to be a family to run a family farm. Overall, this was a charming, quite steamy, and engaging read that took me by surprise. It goes to show you that it is possible to use a common trope and create a well-written and entertaining novel. I have no hesitation in recommending this novel as an excellent, romantic read!

Fake Fiancee – An RNAA Recommended Read

Romance Novel Addicts Anonymous Book Recommendation by: Linda Fausnet

Genre: Contemporary Romance

My Thoughts on the Book: I picked up this book because I know the fake fiancee trope is very popular so I was curious to try one. This was an enjoyable story with a sexy college football player and a strong yet wounded heroine. I was pleased to see this book had a good plot that kept me interested beyond just the familiar fake fiancee trope. Sexy, sweet, engaging (pun sorta intended) read.

The Best Man Wins – An RNAA Recommended Read

Romance Novel Addicts Anonymous Book Recommendation by:  Linda Fausnet

Genre: Romantic Comedy

My thoughts on this book: This was an enjoyable romantic comedy about a gruff, alpha yet not too obnoxiously alpha, guy and a wedding planner who was left at the altar at her own wedding. Though of course there is an HEA, there were some cool twists and turns in the story to keep you guessing. Great book for when you’re in the mood for a light romantic read.

Bed Head – An RNAA Recommended Read

Romance Novel Addicts Anonymous Book Recommendation by: Linda Fausnet

Genre: Romantic Comedy/ Friends to Lovers

My Thoughts on the Book: A sweet and steamy friends-to-lovers romance between Kate and Brody, who have been friends since childhood. This was one of those books that sucks you in right away with characters you feel connected to and who you really want to see get their HEA. A quick, fairly light read, light on angst, and definitely recommended for fans of the friends to lovers trope!

Red, White, & Royal Blue – An RNAA Recommended Read

Romance Novel Addicts Anonymous Book Recommendation by:  Linda Fausnet

Genre: LGBT Romantic Comedy

My Thoughts on the Book: When I first picked up this book, I had absolutely no idea what the book was about. All I knew was that it was a romance novel and that there was a ton of hype surrounding it. I was surprised to find it was a male/male romance. This was a pleasant surprise, as it was heartwarming to see an LGBT book like this one enjoy so much success. This was an utterly charming tale of a sweeping love affair between the First Son of the United States (the son of the first female president) and the Prince of England. This was such a clever idea, and it was executed beautifully. Featuring beautiful flowery love letters between the two absolutely swoon-worthy heroes, it was funny, sweet, charming, and certainly tugs at your heart strings. The book dealt with homophobia in a fairly idealistic and unrealistic way, and I was completely fine with that. There is so much ugliness and hate going on in the world and I relished reading about the world the way it could be, not the way it really is. Highly recommend this inspiring, heartwarming, uplifting read.

Saddled – An RNAA Recommended Read

Romance Novel Addicts Anonymous Book Recommendation by: Linda Fausnet

Genre: Romantic Comedy

My Thoughts on the Book: This book was just a lot of fun to read. I loved the premise – female worker at a condom company falls for the new, sexy temp who happens to moonlight as a male stripper. An added complication is the company’s no-dating policy between coworkers that was implemented by the heroine herself! A highly enjoyable read with quirky, gossipy, and sometimes bitchy coworkers, it was fun to watch the hero and heroine get their HEA. Bonus – the male stripper routines were absolutely delicious!

Survive the Night – An RNAA Recommended Read

Romance Novel Addicts Anonymous Book Recommendation by: Linda Fausnet

Genre: Romantic Suspense

My Thoughts on This Book: This was a terrific suspense story with a heroic, swoon-worthy hero and a smart and sexy heroine. Trapped in a mall overnight with hostages taken during a bank robbery, Connall and Bailey have to work together to survive. Con is used to situations like this as he is a member of a SWAT team, but Bailey is more out of her element. This was a thoroughly enjoyable story and an excellent start to a romance suspense series.
