From New York Times bestselling author, J. Daniels, comes a sexy new STANDALONE novel.

Riley Tennyson has made a huge mistake.

At least, that’s what she keeps telling herself.

Showing up to her brother’s wedding pissed off and newly single, Riley seeks comfort in solitude and an open bar, until the gorgeous and irresistibly charming CJ Tully makes her a better offer―a wild night with the master of smooth-talking where nothing is off limits.

Riley does what any single woman would do, and a connection is made. One neither one of them can ignore. But when she comes home to the boyfriend she no longer thought she had, Riley buries her secret and begs CJ to do the same.

Forget about each other. It was a mistake. That’s all it was… right?

Desires are hidden. Distance is kept. Until one night CJ makes the ultimate sacrifice, and Riley can no longer avoid the man she can’t stop thinking about.

Not with him sleeping down the hall…


What I Need is book #5 on the Alabama Summer Series by J. Daniels. It’s a standalone, but I really recommend you to read the whole series. It’s one of my favorites!

J. Daniels is like wine. She gets better and better with each book she writes. And it’s not subtle. You can see how each story is better than the other. She creates heroes like no one. Her books are a SURE THING, darlin’.

Let me start by saying that Reed is my favorite BAMA BOY. I loved his story and I wish I was #BethDavisFromMcGills.

But then I met CJ.

Sorry, Reed. It was lovely our time together, I still love you very much, but Mr. Tully stole my heart. – Blame Jessica, Reed!

CJ Tully is funny, sexy, romantic, a gentleman and GORGEOUS! (Hello, Chris Pratt!) The way this guy loves, how he puts Riley first, how he cares for her. . . it’s heartwarming.

Riley’s POV is hilarious! They way she thinks is crazy funny, and that makes her so real and likable. She is full of insecurities and CJ is the perfect man to show her just how special she is.

The first impression we get from CJ in ‘When I Fall’ and ‘Where we Belong’ is that he is a goofy, funny dude. But in ‘What I Need’ we find out that he is a MEN. And a great one. Seriously, I’m in love.

I LOVED THIS BOOK. If you have never read the Alabama Summer Series, start now! You won’t regret!

P.S.: I’m so ready for Jake! Come to mama, book #6!

P.P.S.: Thank you, Jessica. Your writing makes me happy. 💜
