What You Need

The Need You Series, #1

This book was not what I was expecting. I love Lorelei James’s work and this book was no exception but don’t expect cowboys. This book is definitely urban. It’s also not really in the west but more the Midwest. It’s nice to see Ms. James expanding her work. Forget the bad boy making good. This is the bad girl making good. The guy, Brady, is from a well to do family and he works for the family business. Lennox works there too but as a lowly floater (typing pool). With a past she wants to forget, Lennox isn’t sharing where she came from. The characters are well thought out and even the secondary characters will keep you interested. Ms. James really knows how to write outstanding characters that you want to know more about. And, while I did thoroughly and completely enjoy this book, it felt a bit generic. The spark that is Ms. James seemed to not shine as bright as usual. However, I would love to know more about Brady’s siblings and cousins. So, while I don’t think this book is the best Ms. James has ever written, it is well written and will keep your interest. And, as Ms. James writes exceptionally well, even though I don’t think this book is up to her normal standard, it is still much better than many books out there and well worth reading.

Lennox left home at 16 and ran wild. Now, she’s trying to make something of herself. She dresses conservatively and studies hard. Currently she works at Lund Industries as a floating secretary. Brady works hard, sometimes putting in 80 hours a week. He’s the youngest CFO in the company’s history. Brady’s contemporaries within the family think he’s working too hard. Can they get Brady to remember to play? And, Lennox’s past comes to pay a visit. This can’t be good.


Book Blurb for What You Need

From the New York Times bestselling author of the Mastered Series and the Blacktop Cowboys® Series, the first in a brand new contemporary romance series . . .

The Lund name is synonymous with wealth and power in Minneapolis–St. Paul.  But the four Lund siblings will each discover true love takes a course of its own. . . .

As the CFO of Lund Industries, Brady Lund is the poster child for responsibility. But eighty-hour work weeks leave him little time for a life. His brothers stage an intervention and drag him to a seedy nightclub . . . where he sees her: the buttoned-up blonde from the office who’s starred in his fantasies for months.

Lennox Greene is a woman with a rebellious past, which she conceals beneath her conservative clothes. She knows flirting with her boss during working hours is a bad idea. So when Brady shows up at her favorite dive bar and catches her cutting loose, she throws caution aside and dares him to do the same.

After sparks fly, Brady finds that keeping his hands off Lennox during office hours is harder than expected. Though she makes him feel alive for the first time in years, a part of him wonders if she’s just using him to get ahead. And Lennox must figure out whether Brady wants her for the accomplished woman she is—or the bad girl she was.
