    I loved this story and so will you.

    If you want to read a story that will ensnare you, one that you can't wait to know what happens next. One that will make you feel good when it ends, yet make you sorry there wasn't more. Than you will be wanting to read WANTING. It will touch you as it deals with a modern problem often swept into the back pages of a newspaper, but needs attention. You will love the characters and their struggles to deal with an unwanted past and you will root for them to accept the unexpected love that they want to receive and want to give. I was pleasantly surprise how much I enjoyed this story and its feel good message while dealing with tragic events. If nothing else you will enjoy the antics of Natalie, Amanda's little sister. I wasn't expecting this story to be so absorbing. I truly couldn't put it down and wound up reading it in one sitting as I was drawn in to this unusual Romance novel. Ms. Ayers has a deft touch with her characters and the events behind the story. I cannot endorse this book in strong enough terms.

    Wanting is a mainstream romance novel featuring Mac McGuire and Mandy (Amanda) in an emotional charged and engaging novel about building a loving relationship, and second chances.

    While Mac is eating at a greasy spoon café, he sees Mandy, and he’s intrigued by her beauty, and wanting to know more about her. Mandy has secrets and in the beginning afraid of her own shadow, with low self-esteem.

    Mac tries to strike up a conversation with Mandy, but Mandy wants no part of Mac or anyone else.

    Amanda quit school to keep her family together; she is busing tables to care for her siblings and herself. Because of her life situation and her mother, she wants nothing to do with men. Mac is a man and someone with money.

    Mac is enthralled with Mandy, he sees a beautiful woman. Although, Mac has been a bachelor; and has many women friends, there is something special about Mandy that has Mac thinking about her becoming a part of his life in River City.

    Mac wants to learn more about Mandy, and wants to take her out; Mandy is reluctant to go out with any man, especially one that comes to a restaurant where she is busing tables.

    Will these two get together?
