Review ~ What Janie Wants by Rhenna Morgan

~ Categories ~ Adult Contemporary, Romance

Clothing optional…

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 au naturale 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.

Rhenna Morgan does a spectacular compassionate job in this sensual story about Janie, an older recently divorced women and Zade, a mature before his time younger man. Janie is someone I can relate to.  Some of us have been in the same situation as her at one point of our life. The author does a believable job showing her current feelings, insecurities about her body and the obstacles of dating a younger man.

This story deals with finding someone who completes you in all ways and how one puts up walls in relationships based on other peoples opinions. The author presents both sides of the story in a manner that has you thinking about things differently. Less judgmental. More honest. You will come away from this book having more compassion and understanding that age difference should be considered and based on the maturity of the person not the number of their age.

This book impacted me greatly and I hope that readers 18+ will enjoy it as much as I have.

I give it 4 STARS

An ARC was received for an honest opinion by Netgalley.

Rhenna Morgan writes for the same reason she reads—to escape reality.

Yes, her life rocks—two beautiful little girls, a great husband, a steady job, and the kind of friends that would take you out back if you hurt her. But, like most women, she’s got obligations stacked tight from dusk to dawn. So, when the world gets her down, she slips into something…less realistic.

Romance is a must. So is a steamy romp (or four). Nothing thrills her more than the fantasy of new, exciting worlds, strong, intuitive men, and the sigh of, “Oh if only that could happen to me.”

So, if you’re picking up one of her books, expect portals into alternate realms and men who’ll fight to keep the women they want. Romantic escape for the women who need it.
