Non-Spoiler Book Review |”What I Need” by J. Daniels.

Okay, I’ve been waiting for this particular book to come out for a while now. It was a gr29328328eat book, a nice romance before I jump back out to my normal fluffy teen reads. This book follows the story of CJ and Riley. We know CJ from the previous book as one of the guy’s partners. Riley is Reed’s baby sister. In this story, CJ gets injured and Riley agrees to help him.
The only problem I had with this book was how disgustingly sweet it was. Between CJ or Riley, I don’t know which one was more cheesy. OMG, there was so much cheesiness in this book to drive me crazy–how many eye rolls I did while reading the book. But besides that, I feel like it was a great story. Riley frustrated me at some point because of her efforts of trying to keep their relationship a secret, which I understand because I had to keep secrets like this from my family before, but she was committed to her belief–I felt bad for CJ. J. Daniels writing style is amazing, I love her writing, 5 stars for that. I gave this whole book 4.5 stars and the only reason is because of too much sweetness between the characters. Don’t get me wrong, they were so cute, but it got overwhelming at some point.
I mean, I wish you could see their “ultimate fight,” I was like, “wait? that was it?” and it happened in the end, and she gave us such a prompt end too, I feel like she could’ve prolonged the conclusion a little bit more, or include an epilogue. But oh well, until the next one Daniels.
xoxo, Martinez.
