What She Wants
For my first review, I have chosen What She Wants, by Sheila Roberts.
What she wants is the story of Jonathan Templar and his poker buddies as they navigate their love lives, each man at a different point in their lives. Yes, this is a romance, but with a twist: the entire novel is told from the guys' points of view! That's right, you're not left wondering, "What was this guy thinking?" because you know exactly what motivates each and everyone of the male characters. This as a great light read from a different perspective.
Because I am also writer, I always read with the intent to learn something from the book I read. With this book, writers can learn about taking a chance with POV. Most romance novels are told from the perspective of the heroine. This entire novel is told from the male characters points of view. Writers, don't be afraid to try something new and write your story from a different perspective than what is expected for your genre.
