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!

Moon Shot – An RNAA Recommended Read

Romance Novel Addicts Anonymous Book Recommendation by:  Linda Fausnet

Genre: Baseball Romance, Contemporary Romance

My Thoughts on the Book: This was a steamy, engaging enemies to lovers book. The tension between the “Frenemies to lovers” was sensual and hot without either of them being overly obnoxious which is sometimes the case with the enemies trope. Aerin was somewhat of a bitchy ice queen, but I still found her likable because she had her reasons for being that way. Javi was super hot, likable, and is a doting father. Interestingly, both the hero and heroine were in their forties which was refreshing. This book held my interest from beginning to end and I can recommend it without reservation. Though this is book four in a series, it works perfectly fine as a standalone.

Swinging Strike – An RNAA Recommended Read

Romance Novel Addicts Anonymous Book Recommendation by:  Linda Fausnet

Genre: Contemporary Sports Baseball Romance

My Thoughts on the Book: Swinging Strike is a sports romance with a kind of an Enemies to Lovers vibe. Braxton is a cocky athlete and Cara is in school to be a veterinarian. Full disclosure: I hate hate hate arrogant cocky alphas in the “I’m going to throw my Kindle into ongoing traffic” kind of way. However, that is my personal preference, and I know there are lots of readers who adore a cocky jerk and the give-and-take tension they provide between the hero and heroine. In the beginning, Cara walked into a pole and Braxton kept calling her Pole Girl despite her repeatedly telling him not to. As for me, I’d have been done with the guy after that. But! I did read on and Braxton eventually chilled out and was not a bad guy overall. This book had a good love story and an engaging plot, plus I like the fact that the heroine was in school to be a veterinarian and the author seemed to have done some actual research on the classes and labs one needs for that, which was refreshing. Bottom line, if you love cocky arrogant jerks, you will enjoy this start to finish. If you hate them, stick it out, don’t throw your Kindle, and you’ll probably have a good time anyway. I had no problem rating this book five stars because the author executed the book perfectly – like I said, my hatred of cocky alphas is a personal preference, and the writing was quite good.

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!
