Big Huge Reader Contest - Day 24!

What a Girl Wants by Selena Robins
Buy eBook from Samhain PublishingKindle
Contemporary Romance / Comedy

Readers who enjoy their romance spicy and filled with witty repartee mixed together with a heavy dose of comedy and a splash of mystery, will enjoy WHAT A GIRL WANTS.

Warning
Side effects may include spontaneous, uncontrollable laughter, hot flashes and dangerous chocolate cravings. Contents include, one kick-ass heroine and a sex-on-legs hero whose kiss could singe the eyebrows off a mannequin. Can be read in bed with someone special or a BOB (battery operated boyfriend). Please note: Batteries not included.

Blurb
“Life’s a beach. Then you have sex on it.”

Maddie Saunders has new attitude and two wishes. Turn her triple-X fantasies into reality with Mr. Sex-On-Legs—Alex Donovan. And, find her biological father. Fulfilling both wishes will take her life down a drastically different path.

For Alex, Maddie falls under the platonic heading of “Look, but don’t touch”. Trouble is, she excels at giving him a hard time—in more ways than one.

He manages to fend off her guerilla seduction tactics—for a few days. Complicated? Absolutely. Especially when Alex discovers the real reason they were sent to Hawaii.

Review
Selena Robins has an excellent voice that makes Maddie such a wonderfully hilarious woman. There are more twists and turns in What a Girl Wants to keep the reader on their toes. The emotions between Alex and Maddie are poetically conveyed while providing the extra spice to make it beautifully erotic. What A Girl Wants is one that should be near the top of any TBR list.

Sex on legs? HAHA, I admit to having read very few comidies, but how can one resist a sex-on-legs hero? And why should one?

Tilly Greene said...

I'm with Kristabel, sex on legs is too enticing to pass by, and the warning sucks me in further - thank you, Selena :-)

Hey Selena -

What a Girl Wants sounds great and I've added it on my TBR pile. I like the warnings especially "BOB" and the note that batteries are not included. Hope everyone has a great day!

Jean P said...

sex on legs hero, that right there makes me want to read this book. Enjoy a book that has a bit of comedy in it

Selena Robins said...

Hey, Deb and Jean, welcome to the blog today.

Jean, I love comedic relief as well, even when writing suspense (which I'm working on right now). I've read it takes less energy to smile and laugh, and conserving energy is what "Green" is all about, right? :)

Cheers,
Selena

Selena good buddy! I am totally prejudice, but I love this book to pieces. I had the honor of critiquing it, too. :)

Selena Robins said...

Romance readers rock! That's why I made sure to acknowledge each and every one of you in my book. Without you, romance authors wouldn't be having fun writing about sex-on-legs hero's and heroine's who use guerrilla seduction tactics.

Love reading all your comments and so happy to see you like the warning, and other descriptive phrases I've used, which were all fun to write. :)

Thank you all for making this a fun day.

Selena

I love romance books with comedy and humor. I read one last year and chuckled throughout the entire book. At the end, I said, "Oh, this book was so sweet.. and funny."

I look forward in reading What a Girl Wants.

Thanks,

oh i love comedies. sex on legs is awesome! thanks for the blurb!

fcammer2 said...

I have this book in my huge TBR pile. Hoping to read it soon.

Anonymous said...

I appreciate all the support and feedback you have provided for the blurb, warning and descriptive phrases such as "sex on legs." :) Which is one of Maddie's isms...she has many, and also a few plans to get what SHE WANTS.

As Alex the hero says, "sometimes, he can get inside her head and know what she's thinking. Boy is that a scary concept."

Happy Reading! Feel free to drop me a line anytime, love to hear from readers.

Selena

Selena Robins said...

The hand is quicker than the eye. LOL I hit the post comment button before I could fill out my information, so it came out as anonymous above.

I'm having one of those weeks, I tell you. I called "videos" "moving pictures" because I couldn't think of the word video at the time.

See what happens to writers, we have so many characters in our heads, we sometimes have no room for words. LOL

Cheers!
Selena

Selena Robins said...

I'm so sorry for your loss, Starryann and know what a rough time this is for you. We lost our precious fur baby (retriever) before Christmas, and I miss her everyday.

I hope they find each other over the rainbow bridge and chase squirrels together.

Glad we were all able to brighten your day a little.

Take care, hugs
Selena

starryann said...

side affects don't sound bad,well except maybe the hot flashes lol
sounds like a good read very interesting. How did you come up with story, and what story was your very favorite to write or read and why?

Selena Robins said...

Thanks for the positive comments, regarding the snippets posted.

Starryann, those kind of hot flashes are fun. :) Great questions too.

I came up with the story, the same way I come up with all my stories...the characters. I imagine characters and then put them in situations, conflicts, and have them fight for their happy ever after.

What a Girl Wants is a favorite of mine, because the heroine is quirky, outgoing, fun and has a zest for life that brought a smile to my face when I was writing her journey. She also has a serious side and a lot of faults, which I hope my readers can connect.

Of course, the hero, Alex is another favorite, he was a lot of fun to hang around with, while writing.

I am now on to a new book, a suspense, so the hero and heroine of this book will become my favorite soon. :)

Great chatting with you.

Hugs
Selena
