From New York Times bestselling author, J. Daniels, comes a sexy new STANDALONE novel.
Riley Tennyson has made a huge mistake.
At least, that’s what she keeps telling herself.
Showing up to her brother’s wedding pissed off and newly single, Riley seeks comfort in solitude and an open bar, until the gorgeous and irresistibly charming CJ Tully makes her a better offer―a wild night with the master of smooth-talking where nothing is off limits.
Riley does what any single woman would do, and a connection is made. One neither one of them can ignore. But when she comes home to the boyfriend she no longer thought she had, Riley buries her secret and begs CJ to do the same.
Forget about each other. It was a mistake. That’s all it was… right?
Desires are hidden. Distance is kept. Until one night CJ makes the ultimate sacrifice, and Riley can no longer avoid the man she can’t stop thinking about.
Not with him sleeping down the hall…
This was clearly one of my favorites. Definitely second after the first in this series. Ben and Mia will always have my heart forever. It just hits home. But Riley and CJ do it for me too.
What I Need starts off with Reed, Riley's brother, wedding. (Couple from book 3.) Riley is the maid of honor and CJ is the best man. They hit it off. And of course they end up doing the dirty, multiple times. What Riley didn't expect though, going home and realizing she's still in a relationship!
Drama galore. Of course this means CJ and Riley can't be together. Friendzone for the pair of them. But you know what happens when you're in the friendzone? Problems. There is more drama that forces these two together in a way they didn't anticipate.
There are a lot of secrets going on with these two and makes you want to punch them in the face. Or be like "Grow the fuck up!" but you understand. Somehow they both just work. Even with a huge age difference, 8 years!, it still works.
Well done! The banter was great and again, one of my favorites from J.Daniels for sure.
She would rather bake than cook, she listens to music entirely too loud, and loves writing stories her children will never read. Her husband and children are her greatest loves, with cupcakes coming in at a close second.
J grew up in Baltimore and resides in Maryland with her family.
