My Just What I Needed Review . . .

If you haven't met the Lunds before then you need to.  I love them! All of them.  The first book in this series was based on Brady Lund and this time around we get Walker's story.

As of late, I seem to be on a quirky romance kick and I love it.  Walker and Trinity have quite the quirky, cute love story.   Walker Lund is the dependable Lund whom everyone of the family takes advantage of.  They take so much advantage as of late they haven't really noticed Walker and what he needs.   To the rest of the Lunds, Walker will always be there and will always try to fix everything, including the people he dates.

Trinity Amelia Carson's a talented artist but she's a bit broken.  Not from her art but from her family.  For her, Art is everything but most don't completely understand her or her art.   After a long day she finds herself at a bar wallowing in her pity but the minute Walker comes through the door her world changes.

"How about we have a drink and you can tell me the real reason you used your tongue to introduce yourself instead of a handshake."
The moment Trinity sees Walker she literally walks up to him and kisses him.  And after that sparks flew for these two.  The Lunds believe in fate, so when at first Walker didn't think he would see his mystery woman again, fate had a different plan bringing these two together.

"It was like I was in a lusttrance."
I liked Trinity and her idiosyncrasies but at times she almost pushed me to my brink.  Thankfully she was able to clear her head, that she could see the gift that was in front of her, which was Walker Lund.   When we first met Walker in What You need I didn't know about his quirky side but I absolutely adored it here.  These two couldn't be any more perfect for one another.  And don't even get me started on Buttons.  :)

"I specialize in hello kisses.  Good-bye kisses are  your deal.  So next time . . . I expect one that'll blow my hair back."

 Since these two are from fairly different worlds, we knew it would not be smooth sailing for these two.  And what a bumpy ride it was, but I loved it.  There is just something charming and sweet about this series that I can't seem to put the books down once I picked them up.

I first found Lorelei James when I was in the cowboy romance genre phase than she blew me out of the water with her bdsm erotica with the mastered series.  At first I wasn't sure how she was going to fare with the contemporary genre but so far both of these books from this series I have adored.

I absolutely love the Lund family and I can't wait for more.  This series has so much potential with all the Lund children.  Whom will be the next one to fall? Can't wait to find out. 

4 I have a huge crush on all things Walker Lund thumbs up!
