When I Need You

(Need You #4)


Published July 25th 2017

Genre: Contemporary Romance



Rules are tossed aside when a pro football player join forces with a spitfire cheerleading coach in New York Timesbestselling 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.





If you love second chance romance novels this it the book for you.

If you adore hunky and swoony football players – you must read this book!!!

If you love super sweet and heart-warming love-stories this book is a MUST!


When I Need You (Need You #4) by Lorelei James had all of the points mentioned above . The author delivered a solid performance, that was masterfully written, plotted and executed. In addition to a fantastic and thoroughly enjoyable cast, the novel delivered a heartfelt, and deeply affecting storyline that pulled me in until the last word.

Rowan and Jensen were both down-to-earth, mature and responsible individuals. Their interactions were a joy and deeply gratifying. The author eased them from friendship to relationship in a wonderfully slow paced fashion which worked for this couple and story perfectly. Add to it the sweetest little boy and you got a WINNER!!!

Jensen had lists/conditions of who to date – I was cracking up every time one of his rules were broken. It’s almost as if Rowan was put on this world just for Jensen to break ALL of his rules. HILARIOUS!!!

I think what I loved the most was how drama free When I Need You was. There was a good amount of sexual tension, some conflict which was solved in a very mature way, and lots of interaction and cameos from family members of the Lund clan.

Jensen was pretty swoon-worthy. Especially for a jock, he was a very dependable and grounded athlete, and not at all what I expected. He was focused on his career but never doubted his feelings and always knew his priorities in life – it was rather refreshing if I may say so.

All in all this book was so much more than I expected. And I can only recommend it to anyone that loves swoony jocks, strong single moms, and cute kids that steal the show.




Our winner is Evelyn Diaz. Congrats and enjoy reading!!!!
