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!

Title: Tell Me What You Want
Author: Susan Sheehey
Genre: Small Town Romance
The Cardinal rule for Knights is never fall for a client. But in a business were rules are meant to be broken, how can he resist…
Book One – Renner
Showing a woman her worth is his specialty.
Renner Shaw’s priority as a Knight—a luxury escort with Knights of Texas—is making clients feel safe and secure.
Intimacy is a perk, and one of his fortes. A position he was surprised to be well suited for with his charm and unrivaled focus. But he never expected the likes of Cassie Summer to come calling.
Cassie never expected to call an escort for the sole purpose of helping her sleep after a sudden tragedy. She certainly never anticipated the sizzling Renner Shaw would be the light that helps guide her out of grief. Only, it may be too late to salvage her splintered heart.
Making his client feel safe and secure is harder than Renner ever imagined, but he’s determined to fulfill his role to perfection. To change her gray and dreary world into one of colorful pleasure.
Knights of Texas novella series
These noble protectors of pleasure bring their expertise and determination to showing a woman her true worth.
Revealing a woman’s value is their devoted mission, and these southern charmers can all but guarantee kindling a woman’s heart.
What I Loved About this Book:
This book portrays grief realistically and doesn’t pull punches when it comes to showing what it’s like to have your husband taken from you suddenly. The hero, Renner, is sexy, as well as being physically and emotionally protective. He works for an escort service, specializing in clients who desire military men. A former marine and bodyguard, protecting others is in his nature. I liked Renner and enjoyed reading about him, and I liked the premise of this book.
What Could Have Been Better:
The book is quite short. To be fair, it is billed as a novella, so I suppose I shouldn’t complain. Even so, the writing was terrific and I felt there was plenty of room to expand on the characters. I would have loved to have gotten to know the heroine, Cassie, a bit better. All we really know about her is that she was a devoted wife and a wonderful mother. We don’t get much insight into her other than her grief. We don’t get to explore her hopes and dreams, her career, her past, or anything like that so it makes it a little harder to lose yourself in the romance. Renner loves her for her devotion to her family, but what else? Even though it is part of a series, the book does not end on a cliffhanger, which is good.
Sexual Content: Just a little, and it was relatively mild.
Overall: A well-written, bittersweet story with a sexy hero that can be read in one sitting.

This was a thoroughly enjoyable read. Sweet and with a bit of spice, it was a terrific small town romance with well-developed characters and an engaging plot. The author truly captures the flavor of a small town and even includes a brownie recipe at the end. What’s not to love?
