"Admit it. You're finding me irresistible right now."
From the moment CJ and Riley met, their chemistry leapt right off the page, crackling and pulsing around me. From the moment they met. It was practically palpable, and they were so perfect together -- easy, passionate, playful -- that I honestly had no idea how on earth Riley was able to deny or hide it for even a second. CJ was a mountain of muscled alpha male who hid a tender side and a romantic soul beneath all that bulk. But it was the way he was with Riley, so gentle, kind, loving and wise, that did me in. He was so patient and understanding with her when that was what she needed from him most. His deliciously dirty mouth, though? Yeah, my knees went weak reading the some of things he said, so it's a good thing I was sitting down or I may have melted into a steaming puddle on my floor.
"I'm waiting to wake up from the best dream of my life."
I loved Riley. She was adorable, naturally curious and endearingly naive just sweetly sassy enough that she never came off as sarcastic. She was also very funny, sometimes unintentionally so, and I couldn't stop myself from laughing out loud at some of the things that ran through her head or came out of her mouth. I think her biggest flaw was that she was just a titch too amiable, wanting so much to please everyone else in her life - from her dirtbag ex, Richard, to her brother, Reed - with little thought to what she wanted or needed. Riley was almost delicate, though, with just a bit of innocence and some genuine wide-eyed wonder in her, and that was exactly what CJ needed in a woman. He needed someone he could protect and have fun with and love passionately. He did all of that with her spectacularly as I sat here in my seat swooning and devouring every single word of it.
"We're lovers who became friends who became...everything."
J Daniels has never failed to rock my world with her brilliant books, and What I Need now crowns the top of an already fabulous list of top personal favorites. My heart melted, my cheeks burned and my soul sang right along with CJ and Riley's as they fell in love. This book made my heart so very happy, and What I Need by J Daniels is exactly the kind of love story I hope for when I want to read something sexy, sweet and romantic.
After a horrible fight with her boyfriend Richard (Dick), Riley makes her way to her brother Reed's wedding. It gives her time to get away from the monotony of nursing school and her failed relationship. What Riley doesn't anticipate is being paired up with one of Reed's friends.
"My breath catches the tiniest bit as I instantly recognize CJ Tully, another member of the Ruxton Police Department. We've never met. Not officially, anyway."
CJ is the bachelor of the group. He's a little bit older, not much wiser, but definitely just as hot as our favorite guys Ben, Luke and Reed. He's a fun loving guy but has the sweetest side to him. It was fantastic to get to know him and his #TullyCharm.
"Come on, darlin'. Go somewhere with me."
After a series of events, Riley comes to be CJ's roommate and they're officially in the friend-zone. Things may have happened at the wedding, but their attraction is off-limits...until they both come to their senses and realize that it's inevitable. Riley and CJ belong together and nothing stands in their way...except a few little white lies here and there.
Once again, J. Daniels gets it right with What I Need. Super hot in the beginning with awesome build-up and banter throughout the story. You can't help but fall in love with our friends in Ruxton. This series may not be super heavy or emotional, but J. knows how to write on all levels and you find yourself laughing out loud on one page, almost tearing up on the next and swooning throughout.
"I am not forgetting you. I got a taste of something I want more of and a taste like that, babe, there's no forgetting."
We've waited almost two years for new characters from our beloved Alabama Summer Series and let me tell you, the wait was worth it. It's like coming home after being away for a while, everyone is the same but a little different, maybe more mature, but your friendship is still there to stand the test of time. Instead of a typical "years later" epilogue, J. set us up for Jake's (CJ's little brother) story. I can already tell this is going to be angsty and emotional and I cannot wait!
I found myself putting this down frequently because I was honestly bored. It started out promising, but once the first chapter was over it became long winded and lacking in enough action to maintain my attention.
Don't get me wrong, I loved CJ! He was great. A big burly guy with a heart of gold.
I did not like Riley. She was incredibly young, and that could of been overlooked if she was more mature. But, she showed her immaturity in every way. And, her overreaction at the end was slightly ridiculous.
I will read Jake's story.
