Publisher's Summary

Lennox Greene is a woman with a rebellious past, which she conceals beneath her conservative clothes. She knows that flirting with her boss, Brady Lund, during working hours is a bad idea. So when the handsome CFO of Lund Industries shows up at her favorite dive bar and catches her cutting loose, she throws caution aside and dares him to do the same.

After sparks fly, Brady finds that keeping his hands off Lennox during office hours is harder than expected. Though 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 whether Brady wants her for the accomplished woman she is or the bad girl she was.

Contains mature themes.

✫✫ 4 Stars ✫✫

I really enjoyed this sweet love story! It was fun and snarky. Brady and Lennox are pretty opposite. Brady is 32 and still trying to figure out who his is. Lennox had already lived the exciting life and is over it. I love that when they come together they don't really change but just have more confidence in who they are. The steamy scenes were definitely a little light for this author but still hot. I enjoyed the narration too!

Engrossing Drama

What You Need is an engrossing romantic drama about Brady (32) and Lennox (28). While Brady is the CFO of his family's industrial empire, he is not the typical millionaire playboy so popular lately. No, he is kind, sometimes insecure, and not a man whore. Yea!

Lennox's strong and sassy character is also different from the vapid, easily manipulated wimps that have become equally popular since FSOG. Lennox survived an abusive and neglectful childhood, but doesn't wallow in the past or self-pity.

The author takes her time having them get to know each; there is instant attraction but not instant love or sexual relationship. There are normal bumps as they become closer, with the conflicts inherent in working at the same company and having opposite income levels.

I would have given this book a 5 star rating if there hadn't been talk about sexual control and Brady needing to be "in charge in the bedroom". I was relieved that Brady wasn't actually violent or degrading to Lennox, but it ruined the sensual scenes for me.

Any additional comments?

pretty good. Romance package. This is a test to see if my review win stay after I delete book from library. When I just rate with stars rating disappears when I return, then I have no way of knowing if I've read it before. My memory isn't what it used to be.

Snore

This was totally predictable and offered nothing new at all. Sex fluff sex fluff. At one point when the characters were talking in chapter 14, Brady was describing the warehouse and area he lived. He actually said, " I'm sorry. I'm probably boring you to sleep". Hint- if the characters are boring each other then it's probably safe to assume the readers are bored. I also had a hard time seeing these two people together. While I might have liked the two individually, I think it was a stretch. Can't finish.

1st series: love between a poor woman & rich man

Very sweet romance -Brady, a Lund family heir with confidence issues falls for a bright, hard working young woman with a poor, difficult childhood. Some drama, some hot scenes, and an introduction to several siblings and cousins for future books. A fairly pleasant romance. Good narration and a good choice for the Escape Package.

Fun & Flirty

What You Need was a fun and flirty read filled with sweet and sexy moments. There was insta-chemistry and kinda a slow build but not a great burn. This was as hot and heavy as you may be used to for LJ but just as good. The narration was spot on and was perfect to my ears. It was an enjoyable listen while working.

Bkah...

I just couldn't finish it. The narrators are great but the story line drags. The male character is believable but the female is so annoying. I'm not into self torture so I stopped at 4 hours in. See? I tried!
