When I Need You (Need You, #4)When I Need You by Lorelei James

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


This series is getting better and better with each book!

When I Need You follows the story of Jensen “The Rocketman” Lund, tight-end for the Minnesota Vikings. In the last, Jensen suffered a potentially career ending injury…(view spoiler)[he made a full recovery and was able to play football again. (hide spoiler)] He also moved into the Axl’s former apartment where he meets the heroine. She breaks all of his rules and yet he’s drawn to her.

Rowan Michaels is a single mom who just wants to do right by her son and that means staying away from Jensen who has the power to destroy not only her heart but also her career as a cheerleader/coach.

Just like the previous books in this series, When I Need You is full of wicked humor and fun family interactions of the Lund family. This is one of the stronger aspects in the book which is fortunate since we get to see more Lunds in this book. I was especially intrigued by Jaxon and Lucy. Their drama has been playing out since the last book and we see more of it here. I’m definitely looking forward to reading their story soon.

I also enjoyed how the heroine was written. She had a lot of flaws and owns it. She’s the perfect foil for Jensen. Throw in a precocious kid to the mix and you have a winning combination.
