I received an ARC of this book from the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
It’s not very common to have a commitment-phobe heroine in romance novels. The trope is always the hero who’s never into commitment and relationships. Tell Me You Need Me has a heroine who’s determined not to fall in love and fall into a relationship. Of course, there is a reason for that, a reason that stems from the lack of a role model, one where the heroine can believe in love and stability. The hero in this book is sincere and very easy to root for.
For a book as short as this, it does pack a lot of sexy and sweet moments. I really enjoyed every page. While this story has been used many times over, it still never gets old. You can’t go wrong with this book. Joya Ryan is a very good romance novelist, and while I will also say that she’s written deeper and better books, Tell Me You Need Me gives readers just what they look for in a love story – an undeniable chemistry, a love that’s hard to fight, and a hero that demands for you to swoon over. With those elements in, there’s no way any romantic person wouldn’t have a great time.
