Review: What Janie Wants by Rhenna Morgan
What Janie Wants
by Rhenna Morgan
Janie McAlister should have known better than to trust her quirky sister’s taste in resorts. Instead of thatched-roof huts and designer pools overlooking the ocean, she’s landed at the one seventies throwback in the Riviera Maya with an open door nudity policy. No way is she going à la natural in public. And she’s sure not entertaining the advances of the bold young man with the delicious body daring her to do exactly that…and so much more.
Well, hello, Ms. McAlister…
Zade Painel’s a man on a mission—grab some much needed R&R at Gypsy Cove, and figure out how to reclaim his boudoir photography business. He never thought the answer would come in the form of a curvy, forty-year-old redhead and an accidental knee to the ‘nads, but Janie proves to be a force of nature with a penchant for fixing things. She’s also sexy as hell. One way or another, he’s going to help her see just that. And if he plays his cards right, it’ll be a heavenly hands-on approach that lasts way past seven days in paradise.
I will let you in on a little secret, I really wasn't sure I'd like What Janie Wants. I don't mind a more sexy read, I just get tired of so many authors jumping on the bandwagon. But since I read Morgan's Unexpected Eden (a very good book by the way) I was happy to give What Janie Wants a try.
I'm glad I did. I found that I really liked it. The story had more humor then what I thought it would. Which is a plus for me. I have to have some humor in the books I read. I also liked the characters, another plus on my list. You can have a bad story line, (not that this book did) but good characters can still make you enjoy the story.
You can really feel for Janie, turning forty, getting divorced. What a great time (not) but better then being with the cheating ex-husband. I also enjoyed the older woman, younger man (26 years old) part of the story. Why not, it happens the other way around all the time.
Even though Zade is younger, I don't feel like they are silly together. In fact, I really liked them together. As a couple they worked. Janie deserves a little fun in her life and Zade brings that to her. It also doesn't hurt that Zade isn't a bum. He's had a very successful business, or at least he had one. (read the book to find out what happened with it) Evil, I know!
What Janie Wants is a short story that packs a whole hell of a lot of story into it. I think you'll really enjoy it. Who doesn't want to read a fun, sexy good time story?
I'd love to hear your thoughts on it if you've read it, Happy reading!
