Accept This Dandelion by Brooke Williams
Release Date - January 2015
Book Review by Tracy Farnsworth
If you're looking for a quick, passionate romance, Accept This Dandelion is a good choice. Renee Lockhart really wants the position that's opened up for a morning show co-host, but she needs to get her name out there if she's going to get noticed by the show's host. With that in mind, she signs up for a local dating show, but she doesn't expect she'll actually be chosen. When she is, she's stunned, but happy that her plan may work out.
Ben McConnell is ready to show the world he's more than the playboy people think he is. This local dating show is his chance to show he's ready to fall in love and settle down. He's not just a man whose only goal is to find another woman for a one night stand. When he spies Renee's audition, he's instantly charmed by her no-nonsense, down-to-earth attitude.
As the show gets underway, both Renee and Ben begin realizing they may have found the person that completes them, but neither has been completely truthful. Can two complete strangers, opposites at that, really stand a chance at true love?
Accept This Dandelion is a lot like the short Harlequin romances I've always enjoyed for moments when I want a quick read. The passion between Renee and Ben is well-developed and only gets better. The other women competing in the dating show are less developed, but that's okay, I wanted them out of the picture anyway.
There's a bit of humor, plenty of sizzle, and a romance that you quickly root for. I can't say this is a story I'd read over and over again, but for a bitter cold afternoon, it definitely satisfied my need for a good book I could curl up with in front of the fire and enjoy in one sitting.
