Life is hard. Life leaves you beaten, broken…alone. Then one day, a stranger touches your hand and you feel something intense, unforgettable, but yet, you want to forget. You need to forget. It’s safer than believing in things you’ve decided don’t exist. You know all about shattered promises and lost hope. You know them so much better than you know this excited, warm, wonderful feeling, and it scares you. He scares you, but he also makes you feel alive again. He makes you realize you haven’t really been living. You’re surviving and you fear he’s the one who’ll make you forget how to keep doing it. But what if he’s the one who changes everything?
Trust Lisa Renee Jones to always embed some sort of intrigue to her story regardless if it's full length or a nooner like NEED YOU NOW. The trope of this 80-paged Naughty Nooner is an office romance although this office isn't your typical love story developed inside a cubicle.
One drunken night Danny found herself a sexy stranger who she ended up fooling around with only to discover that the handsome guy is the boss' nephew, Jensen. The following day, Danny's called to the office and was told that she's been handpicked to help Jensen sort out some corporate crisis. But the attraction between them is proving to be too distracting and powerful to ignore and eventually the lines between work and personal is blurred. Question is, can they keep things separate and can Danny stop Jensen's passion from devouring her?
NEED YOU NOW is another short, sexy, entertaining tale, and clever story by LRJones. And for the purpose of comparisons, it's more Inside Out than Amy Bensen (I think), in case you're wondering which is a good thing IMO as I'm not a big fan of the latter. Though I have yet to get invested in the characters I do love how LRJones laid out the premise of NEED YOU NOW. She'll tease and seduce you the same time Jensen is seducing Danny so there's this simultaneous thing going on that will make you pant and sweat for at least an hour. The rush of sexiness is swift and will have you begging for more.
