Rating 4 stars
Janiyah Henderson may be an adult, but her dad doesn’t see it that way. Granted, she’s enjoying her post-college life of little-to-no responsibility, but when her dad announces at a family meeting that she can’t handle working a “real job”, there’s only one thing to do: land a desk job and prove him wrong. When her brother’s best friend, Fredrick Jenkins, needs a new assistant, she knows she’s the perfect candidate. So what if she’s had a crush on the conservative accountant since she was nine? She’s the last woman Freddy would fall for.
But Fredrick is far from impervious to Janiyah’s charms. Though he can’t help but be attracted to her, he knows Janiyah is more interested in eating his cereal and teasing him than viewing him as more than the good guy next door. When he offers her the job, he can’t imagine her giving up her late mornings and colorful outfits for 8:00 a.m. meetings and pantyhose for too long. But as Janiyah excels as his employee, he fears he’s in danger of falling hard for a woman he shouldn’t care for.
Pretty soon the attraction they’ve tried to ignore boils to the surface. And after Fredrick shows Janiyah the man behind the numbers, she’s ready to show him that she’s just the type of woman he needs.
This book is not winning any cover awards. It look like one of those cheesy romance covers. So don't let the cover keep you from reading this.
Janiyah has had a crush on Fredrick for years. As a teenager she acted on those feelings only to be shot down. Since then, she has been dating one guy after another. Each still hold a flame but neither acts on their feelings. Fredrick thinks that Janiyah has the potential to hold him down financially like his father is with his mother. Janiyah thinks that Fredrick only see her as a type of little sister. When they both can no longer hold up the facade of friendship the story really heats up.
Just My Type is a feel good romance. It keeps you engage the entire time. All characters are likable. There are no bad guys in this book. It is all about Janiyah and Fredrick aka Freddy. If you are a crier there may be a scene that bring a tear to your eye. If you are a laugher then you will enjoy their elderly sex toy selling next door neighbor name Mrs. Driggers. And all I can say is the way he made her say Fredrick instead of Freddy...oh my LAWD!
Should you read it? Yes. Who should read it? Fans of romance. Who shouldn't read it? Those looking for a clean read. It is not bad but the sex is descriptive and steamy.
Synithia Williams has loved romance novels since reading her first one at the age of 13. It was only natural that she would begin penning her own romances soon after. When she isn't writing, this local government gal balances the needs of her husband and two sons.
