Book Review- What I Need (Alabama Summer Series #5) by J. Daniels

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…

What I Need, Is More CJ & Riley! 

Riley Tennyson is looking to blow off some steam before her brothers wedding and drown her frustrations, with her brother and her ex, with the help of some Tequila. When the ever sexy, officer CJ Tully decides to keep her company, Riley's not prepared for the burning attraction she experiences with every one of CJ's cocky smiles, and his charming words. 

After a weekend forming a sexy, deep connection, both CJ & Riley are excited to see how things could progress once back home. But misunderstandings, guilt, and being torn, halt all of that. Now both Riley & CJ will have to dance around the bond they have, hide what formed between them, and hope they can convince themselves, each other, and everyone around them that they can be friends. 

But the more Riley denies how she really feels for this unbelievable man, with his sweet & sexy words, his strong body and his amazing friendship, the harder time she has hiding her want, her need for him. CJ doesn't make it easy for Riley to run from the smoking hot chemistry they share. He knows what he wants, and that's Riley. And he'll not stop showing this beautiful, kind, amazing women, how great they could be together, how great he would treat her.

OMG! I never want to get off the "Tully Train". HE'S MINE! CJ TULLY is mine! ;) Oh man I never thought another Bama Boy could take Ben Kelly's spot as my favorite, but CJ totally owns my heart and the number one Bama Boy spot. I mean everything about him is just SWOON! I need, I want, a man like CJ Tully!

Hot Damn, I'm pretty sure CJ is "THE" top book boyfriend. This funny, sexy, protective, country boy is the BEST. I seriously could not get enough of him. He is such a swoon-worthy, give you butterflies, make you blush, I want to climb allllll over him, can he be real please, kind of character. ;) And what makes him even better, Riley Girl! She is soooo awesome. I LOVED Riley. Silly, sweet, big hearted, loving, just all around kick***! I loved Riley & CJ's friendship, how their attraction developed into something so beautiful. I loved that they could go from laughing and being silly to super sexy times, to deep moments. My favorite Alabama Summer Series Couple for sure! 

I just LOVE this series. I can't get enough of these books. Amazing job J. Daniels! What I Need was everything, and so much more. So worth the wait.
