Review: The Girl He Wants (No strings Attached) by Kristi Rose

It’s tempting to ignore your heart . . .
Boutique owner Jayne Grandberry may be great at getting customers to treat themselves, but she’s even better at resisting her own desires. For her, love is like a sinfully rich dessert—a fleeting pleasure that will just make her crash in the long run. She has no time for such distractions, especially since she’s trying to open up a second shop in Atlanta. But she finds herself tempted like never before when her friends set her up with Stacy Cunningham.

A financial wizard, Stacy gives off a definite nerdy vibe, but he has skills that a businesswoman like Jayne can appreciate—and an indulgent one-night stand shows her a wildly different side of him. There’s nowhere for them to go from there, since Stacy, a single father, has complicated written all over him. But he’s not willing to settle for second best. And he’ll have to wait for Jayne to discover what he’s known all along: that when you open your heart to love, there will be room in your life for anything . . .

Terri's Thoughts

I received a copy of this book from the publisher via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.  Thank you!  It was just released on February 14th.

This is the third instalment in the No Strings Attached series.  No worries if you have not read the first two, this can be read as a stand alone if need be. Although if you want my two cents, I recommend reading the whole series as it is entertaining.  I read the second story The girl He Needs however have not read the first one.  Each story has enough strength on its own.

I will not go in to too much detail about the plot as I feel the synopsis does a pretty good job of it.  I also feel that the story stays pretty true to the formula that is most common with this genre.  Add in a little bit of humor, particularly with Jayne, and this ends up being a pretty good read.  I wish I could hire Jayne to fill my closet for me!

At the end of the day, what makes this story stand out from others in the genre is the humor and how the story was written.  Jayne was not the picture perfect female by today's societies standards (yes they still exist).  This made her more real to me.  The fact that she couldn't/didn't cook appealed to my rebellion of everything domestic.  This story does not take itself too seriously.

I recommend this one!
