Review Blitz: What I Need - J. Daniels

win banner 4   WIN

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…    




Move over Officer Kelly there’s a new top cop in Ruxton, AL.  Oh me, oh my, hello Officer Tully.  I fell in love with J. Daniels’ writing when from the first book I read of hers and I have stayed hooked throughout the years.  She has a way of writing these sexy, alpha Southern men that just keep me drooling.  It’s almost enough to tempt me to move down south, humidity and all.  What I Need was no different.  I absolutely adored this book.  It was sexy, flirty and just kept me smiling from the get go. 

Riley Tennyson is spunky, cute and caring but has some insecurity issues.  And she’s definitely a worry wart, especially when it comes to her brother and his opinions about the men she dates.  She comes across as young, which works considering her age.  Even if it had me wanting to shake sense into her sometimes.  CJ Tully is honest, romantic and a bit of a dirty talker.  He’s the epitome of protective Southern alpha.  And when the two of them get together, FIREWORKS.  Oh man, the sparks start flying.  I’m surprised they didn’t alert the whole town as to what they were up to with how much tension there was between them.  Both characters are decently developed.  They aren’t overly complex but I don’t think it’s needed here.  They each have their own strengths and weakness and you can see them both grow and work through some of them.

I loved seeing the rest of the Ruxton group.  I was just confused that we didn’t see more of them.  With how close knit this bunch is, I was expecting more drop ins, the girls bringing CJ food, Reed checking in on his sister, etc.  That didn’t happen and it left CJ and Riley a lot of alone time.  That just seemed odd to me.  But hey, it left plenty of time for him to work his Tully charm so works for me.

It was definitely low on the drama scale and had no angst at all.  It’s the perfect read if you need a little swoon-worthy loving in your life.  CJ has definitely stolen the favorite cop spot in my book boyfriend list.  I cannot wait to see what happens next in Ruxton.  

I highly recommend everyone pick this up.  There should be no hesitation in your one-click finger, CJ will melt your heart (and your panties).  -Peace and Love, Buxom J
