Release Day: March 5, 2017

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 offera 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


ARC received for an honest review

I am late to the J. Daniels party, and have only read a couple of her earlier books.  What I Need was my first I have read of the Alabama Summer series, but this has not affected my reading or enjoyment at all. 

In fact it has made me eager to go back and read them all now

What I Need ... what I need is to find a hot cop like CJ Tully, as that man is all kinds of swoon worthy Southern goodness. If that "darlin'" sliding off his lips doesn't do something to you, I don't know if we can be friends any more!

Riley is just... well I feel for her, but at the same time I want to shake some sense into her.  I adore her (most of the time) but sometimes she frustrated me. 
There was a character that I wanted to... let's put it nicely and say wish harm on. I liked that.  It gave the characters and story depth.

Not saying the story didn't already have that, but it just added that little bit more.

I loved the characters, the banter between them all.  Heck, I wish I was part of their squad #squadgoals

From the gorgeous cover (I am not a person who really worries about the covers, but this one really stands out) to the last page, I was completely and totally engrossed.  CJ and Riley complemented each other perfectly, and I needed to know where their story headed.

Now I am kicking myself for not reading this series earlier.  Can't wait to see what J. Daniels brings us next.

J. Daniels is the New York Times and USA Today bestselling author of the Sweet Addiction series, the Alabama Summer series, and the Dirty Deeds series.

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.
