What You Need (Need You #1) by Lorelei James
New York Times bestseller Lorelei James introduces a new family for readers to fall in love with in the Need You 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 outside his corner office. His brothers stage an intervention and drag him to a seedy night club...where he sees her, the buttoned up blonde from the secretarial pool who's starred in his fantasies for months.
Lennox Greene is a woman with a rebellious past—which she carefully conceals beneath her conservative clothes. She knows flirting with her sexy, but aloof boss during working hours is a bad idea. So when Brady shows up at her favorite dive bar, sans his usual snappy suit, and catches her cutting loose, she throws caution aside and dares him to do the same.
After sparks fly, Brady finds keeping his hands off Lennox during office hours is harder than expected. While 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 if Brady wants her for the accomplished woman she is—or the bad girl she was.
4 out of 5 stars
Such a fun read, playful, and flirty. Loved it!
Great intro that pulled me in. I really liked both Lennox and Brady. They have totally different backgrounds and I enjoyed learning their stories. They had great interactions, a bit of verbal sparring and animosity happening (which I am a big fan of!). It was just so fun and entertaining to watch and that animosity grew into more. Great development as they get to know each other and things move forward.
Brady is the sweetest guy ever! He could also be a bit commanding and dirty. It was awesome! I liked the bit of edge Lennox had as well, I thought she was a touch chick. Together they had great chemistry together, there was so much passion between the two. I had so much anticipation for these two to physically connect, the build was killing me. It was totally worth the wait!
There are some ups and downs throughout but nothing too heavy. I thought there was a really good pace, I thoroughly enjoyed the overall story line and the characters. Really great writing. I really liked the secondary characters as well. Brady's family was great and I liked getting to know them and love how close they all are. I am really hoping each of the siblings get a story, I want more of them.
The ending was really sweet and I like how all the loose ends wrapped up. This was my first Lorelei James book and I will definitely read more.
