What She Wants by Sheila Roberts


What she wants is funny,quirky,romantic novel. It is a plot I have not ever read one like it before. The characters are well written and made me root for them all to find the love they want. This book is the guys looking for love.

Jonathan is a computer geek. He owns his own company that fixes computers problems. He has his own house. He still wants his dream girl from high school who never looked at him only as a friend. Now his 15 year reunion will be here soon. He wants Lissa to see him in a different light.
He hears his sister and friend talking about romance books and their heroes. What they think is the perfect guy. They especially like one author Vanessa. So Jonathan decides to do research on romance novels see if he can figure out what women want.

One of Jonathan's poker buddies is Kyle. Kyle has a crush on a beautful woman at work Jillian. He does not notice him. He is short.
He tries to get Jillian to like him. He complains about woman a lot at poker games. He does not pay much attention to Mindy the girl who works next to him when she tries to be friendly.

Adam has a sales job and makes good money. He is married to Chelsea. He decides after one trip to stay a few extra days to fish and when he gets back the locks are changed. He shows up at Jonathan's late at night and sleeps on the couch.

Vance is the newest guy at the poker game. He owns a bookstore in a bigger town and is semi-retired. He is the oldest guy at the poker game and is single and not looking for anyone.

Bernardo is happily married man at the poker games.

Adam notices all the romance books in Jonathan's house and he finally gets Jonathan to answer that he is doing research and shows him the list of things he has made of the heroes in the books. Adam tells everyone at the poker games about his research he is doing and Kyle is interested in what Jonathan has compiled.

Soon all the guys are talking and betting books at the poker game except Vance. He tries and tells them its a waste of time. Especially Vanessa's books. They are even betting romance books as part of the poker games.

I really enjoyed What She Wants. Look forward to reading more Icicle Falls books.

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 not superior. 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!
