Review: When I Need You (Need You #4) by Lorelei James

This one had me at the fun synopsis, throw in the fact that there was a kid involved (I’m a sucker for a single parent story!) and I was all in. This series just keeps getting better and better!



When I Need You 

When I Need You (Need You #4) by Lorelei James 


Rules are tossed aside when a pro football player join forces with a spitfire cheerleading coach in New York Times bestselling author Lorelei James’s brand-new romance…

Heir to Lund Enterprises and ladies’ man Jensen “The Rocket” Lund has three conditions when it comes to dating:
1) No single mothers
2) No cheerleaders
3) No medical personnel

So it makes no sense that he’s wildly attracted to Rowan Michaels, who breaks all three.

Rowan Michaels didn’t pass the rigorous requirements to become an athletic trainer and Vikings cheerleader in the hopes of landing a pro athlete: been there, done that, and she has a young son as proof that football players and fidelity don’t go hand in hand. When Rowan learns her new neighbor is Jensen Lund, the smoking-hot tight end who takes being neighborly to a whole new level, she’s grateful for the team’s strict “no fraternization” policy because the sexy man defines temptation.

But Jensen is intent on rushing straight to the goal line to prove to Rowan he’s much more than just a player…on and off the field.


5 out of 5 stars

This series just gets better and better! Jensen and Rowan were awesome. This was such an entertaining, sweet, sexy read! I loved it!

Right from the beginning I was smiling because heck of a way to meet a kid and kick of the book. I loved Jensen and Rowan's connection, her stubbornness, and really getting to know Jensen since he was so much more than he seemed. I liked him but he really grew on me and by the end I was loving him and totally swooning. Rowan and Jensen’s relationship is fun and flirty and I loved the build and the playfulness between the two. And the puns! The sports puns were the best. I enjoyed them coming together and Rowan's fight since she was so scared to move forward. Jensen was so patient and caring. I adored his persistence.

I loved the updates with the other Lund couples and some side stories that seem to be happening over the course of the series. I'd really love to see those couples get their own books, fingers crossed! I am just excited with all that is happening with the family. I love Mama Lund. She's so protective of her kids but she's quirky and tough as well and I love her moments of wisdom, for some reason they always make me choke up.

The writing was awesome. Great details and development. Love the progression and build. This was so entertaining with a nice mix of heat. It pretty light in the drama department which I was thankful for. I just loved the sweetness and the romance and the reality of life with a kid in the mix and how that came into play in their relationship.

This is one of those stories that falls into the prefect beach read category for me. It's charming and light but filled with humor, love, and sexiness and it just entertained the heck out of me with great characters and a solid story. Loved it!
