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

32887898When I Need You by Lorelei James
(Need You #4)
Publisher: Berkley Books
Release Date: July 25, 2017

Rating: 5 Stars


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.




Morgan’s Review

I would like to thank the publisher for providing me with an early copy of When I Need You for an honest review.

When I Need You has got heart, passion and everything I love in a sports romance. I have read all 4 books in this series and they keep getting better and better. They can be read as a part of the series or as a standalone. It is told in duo POV. It is smart, mature, steamy and will have you hooked right from the first chapter.

Always try to live your life by a set of rules and stick to them. Those rules seem to have always served both Jensen and Rowan for the best. Jensen has had 3 rules: No Cheerleaders, Mothers, and Medical Professionals. Rowan’s rule is simple: No Athletes. They both break every rule on each others lists and know that it is best to just remain friends. As neighbors they know it could get complicated and I mean they have those rules for a reason.

Jensen has seen how his buddies who didn’t follow those rules fared and Rowan broke her rule a long time ago and she will not make that mistake again. They both agree friends is it.  They start hanging out in each other apartments, and getting closer. It starts getting harder to remember why they were staying just friends. With a no fraternization rule they both have a lot to lose.

Will Jensen take a risk and break his rules? Who will have the most to lose by them having a relationship? You have to read to find out!

When I Need You is romantic and full of tension, it had me wanting to just keep flipping the pages. I loved the whole book and when it was done I wanted more. I hope this is not the end for the series and that we will get a few more books to come. I would definitely recommend this book and I am giving it 5 out of 5 stars.
