You Don’t Have to Say You Love Me – An RNAA Recommended Read

Romance Novel Addicts Anonymous Book Recommendation by:  Lila Dawes

Genre: Contemporary Romance, Curvy Romance


My Thoughts on the Book:

This book is one of the very first contemporary romances I read and I picked it because the “curvy girl” trope was calling to me, finally a book about someone like me! Neve has been in love with William for years, but he moved away to L.A and hasn’t seen her since she lost a lot of weight. Now he’s coming back and this is her chance to nab her dream man except for one thing, she has no relationship experience. Enter sexy, womanising Max who is the answer to Neve’s problems, he can show her the relationship ropes without her getting attached…right?The book is well written, sweet, funny, sexy and sad, the characters likeable and well developed. The chemistry is delightfully slow burning between our two heroes, none of that insta-love here, thank you! What I love about this book is it’s painful in places seeing what Neve goes through and her internal view of herself but it makes you champion her more. This book tackles body image issues and fat shaming and ultimately self-love and acceptance. A hugely uplifting read đź™‚

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.

Of Demon Kind – An RNAA Recommended Read

Romance Novel Addicts Anonymous Book Recommendation by: Julia Walker


Genre: Fantasy Romance


My Thoughts on the Book:

From the first page of the book I was hooked!  I literally could not put it down.  I have never read a romance novel that pulled me into the world the writer created as this one did.  All of my senses were awakened to every aspect of Prince Lorn.  I could feel the air move as he spread his wings to take flight and his breathe as he moved in closer to care for his love.  Wow!  

Anderson writes beautifully, with vivid imagery and flowing sensuous scenes of great love and passion. Her settings are descriptively remarkable, allowing the reader to capture each scene in all of its beauty and glory. I use the word glory because every time  Prince Lorn opens his wings one can not help but feel an amazing presence.  

A damsel in distress, a magnificent man that can fly, a castle, unforbidden love, and passion that could light the world on fire are all included in Anderson’s first novel.  There should be a warning on the book:  if you read this book, you will want to read the entire series.

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 fiancĂ© 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 fiancĂ©, 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.
