What I Need (Alabama Summer #4) by J. Daniels
I really love the “Alabama Summer” series and I love all the “Bama” boys. C.J. has been a favorite of mine ever since he was introduced in the other books, so I have been anxiously waiting for his story.
As expected…he was awesome…what a man…sigh.
CJ, all around sweet guy, cop and best friend of the “Bama” guys and girls.
Him and Riley share a hot passionate weekend together at Reed and Beth’s wedding. Things don’t turn out as planned, though. Even though CJ is all in….it seems that Riley is not.
Riley is Reed’s 22-year-old sister. She is still in school studying to be a nurse.
She is living with her douchebag boyfriend, whom she broke up right before the infamous weekend. She is really attracted to CJ and she really enjoyed the time she and CJ spend together. However, when she gets back home…turns out that she and her ex are not as broken up as she thought. She figures that after all the time they have been together and how much she loves him, she needs to give their relationship another chance. So she asks CJ to keep his mouth shut about what happened but she also still wants to be his friend…
...so this is what they will be from now on…just friends.
However awesome CJ was…I just didn’t feel the same about Riley.
She got on my nerves more than once. She pissed me off right off the bat, by going back to her douchebag boyfriend who treats her like shit. Also, her even asking to be friends with CJ after what happened and telling him not to let their secret slip…..
Anyways….turns out her douche boyfriend is even more of a douche than everyone thought (well everyone except for Riley) and an accident happens, which leaves CJ hurt and in need of care.After setting said douchebag aside (like she should have done in the first place), Riley agrees with CJ, when he offers her a new place to stay if she will help him, while he is healing.
They start with their new friendship, which soon leads to more. How could it not…
….with all that sexual tension floating around the two of them.
It isn’t long before these two are burning up the sheets. They are both committed to one another this time and their feelings keep growing and growing. Problem is…Riley is not ready to come clean with her brother yet…
I really wanted to jump into my Ipad shake her ass !!
To be fair though….CJ is keeping a little secret of his own.
I will be totally honest and say that this heroine is definitely not my favorite in this series. The hero, however, is awesome and for me CJ totally rocked. I could understand Riley having some insecurities because of her age and lack of experience, but come on…grow a spine already.
The steam was great though…these two really rocked the bed…and other surfaces.
CJ also had quite a mouth on him 😉
It’s not my favorite in this series…that spot still belongs to Reed and Beth…
…but I still enjoyed this story very much. I can’t wait to read about Jake’s story, which is next. Now he sounds like a very interesting character.
