Title: What She Wants

Review by: Mary
What do women want? Jonathan Templar and his poker buddies can't figure it out. Take Jonathan, for instance. He's been in love with Lissa Castle since they were kids but, geek that he is, she's never seen him as her Mr. Perfect. He has one last shot—their high school reunion. Kyle Long is equally discouraged. The pretty receptionist at his office keeps passing him over for other guys who may be taller but are definitely notsuperior. And Adam Edwards might be the most successful of Jonathan's friends, but he isn't having any success on the home front. His wife's kicked him out.
When Jonathan stumbles on a romance novel at the Icicle Falls library sale, he knows he's found the love expert he's been seeking—Vanessa Valentine, top-selling romance author. At first his buddies laugh at him for reading romance novels, but soon they, too, realize that these stories are the world's best textbooks on love. Poker night becomes book club night
and when all is read and done, they're going to be the kind of men women want!
What a fun book! Totally unrealistic....but fun. This book is told through the men's point of view--which I love. I love getting inside a guys head. Even if it is fiction. The main character is a bit of a geek. A little nerdy. It is about time we get a character like this! I'm all about the nerds. It is their time to shine. All of the male character's have a little something quirky about them. They are real. You can find your boyfriend/husband/friend in any one of them. That is what makes this story something you can connect with.
It's romance. From a guy's perspective. How romance novels are just brain candy. You can learn something from them. I'm tempted to slip one to my husband to read! See if he'll learn a thing or two.
