I picked this up because it's been ages since I've actually read a contemporary romance and I wanted to remind myself what they were like, so this is probably an unfair review judging a single book for the character of its genre. (Melanie Schuster pls don't read).

That said it wasn't bad! The heroine was bland, the hero was improbably great in every way imaginable, the romance went from zero to eighty in two pages and then stopped building entirely until it suddenly zoomed to 200% in the last cha

A CASE FOR ROMANCE

ANNYA AND JOHNNY'S STORY WAS WHAT I WOULD CALL STORYBOOK ROMANCE BECAUSE ANNYA REMINDS US THAT EVEN WHEN YOU DON'T THINK YOUR WORTHY OF LOVE. IT FINDS IT'S WAY TO YOU. JOHNNY IS THE TYPE OF MAN ANY WOMAN WOULD BE LUCKY TO HAVE AS A LIFE PARTNER.

Johnny has never had a real relationship with a woman, but he wants one with Ayanna. Ayanna is a single mother of two teenage boys and can't believe that Johnny is interested in more than an affair. They embark upon a steamy romance. Johnny knows Ayanna is the one he wants to spend the rest of his life with. His feelings get hurt when he thinks that Ayanna is only interested in him for sex. Johnny leaves to lick his wounds, but a crisis brings them back together again. I love this story as alway ...more

This was an awesome read with an awesome storyline. The "Playa"...Johnny Phillips had to turn in his cards when single mother, Ayanna Walker, his sister Billie's best friend wooed him over. I love how she was able to overcome some serious self-esteem problem in order to be able to experience and share in a love that she deserved. This is a must read...I thoroughly enjoyed this love story and Ms. Schuster never disappoints her readers.

I liked this book a lot. It wasn't hot and steamy like some of the others I'm used to reading but the story and characters were well-developed and very romantic. I laughed out loud at times and teared up a little too.

I thoroughly enjoyed this novella. I'm looking forward to reading more of Schuster's work. I recommend this one.
