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…
*I received a copy from the author in exchange for an honest review*
The thing about first love is that you never know any different. Plenty of times there is no problem with that, if you get treated right. Though when you have a boyfriend like Richard, Riley needs a wake up call. After a huge fight, she believes them broken up, so hooking up with C.J. at her brother’s wedding seems like an excellent idea.
To be honest he treats her very well, inside and outside of the bedroom, so consider me already charmed. Back home from the bliss, things turn a lot more complicated. Apparently not broken of with Richard, Riley is a bit in a pickle, so pretending like nothing ever happened always ends so well. (Note the sarcasm.)
Even as a friend C.J. is hard to ignore, and I love how he puts on thick when it comes to Riley. He’s constantly flirting with her, pushing her buttons, so much fun. Meanwhile Riley almost doesn’t know what to with his attention, and seeing her flustered, and flailing all over the place, it’s hilarious.
Due time things definitely heat up more and more, ’till you just know it’s going to explode, in a good way. What I Need by J.Daniels was a fun, and fast read. Riley and C.J.’s interactions go from sweet, and adorable to hilarious and extremely hot. All very entertaining to read, and for fans of the series, the rest of the couples show up at multiple times. Definitely read if you’re in need of a relaxing time.
