Before getting to the review, can we pause a moment to look at this cover? Am I the only one who thinks Matt Damon posed as Axl here?
Welcome back Lund family! Annika gets her HEA in the latest book in the Need You series from Lorelei James. Annika Lund is asked to help translate for hockey bad boy Axl Hammerquist and then is manipulated into becoming his fake girlfriend as a PR stunt thanks to her mom and Axl’s publicist.
I love all the hilarious nicknames Annika and Axl have for one another. The romance is as good as it always is in any Lorelei James book, but I will say the build up and culmination of the romance is slower and a little more subdued than in her Rough Rider books. We also meet and get to know some awesome secondary characters that I can only hope leads to future books.
Lorelei James never disappoints and I can’t wait for her next book!
Many thanks to the author for an advanced review copy.
