She’s the Girl Next Door
Maci Price isn’t really into relationships. Having four very protective older brothers has always made having a boyfriend very difficult, anyway. But her friend is set on finding her the perfect guy – and thinks the mysterious Connor Green is the perfect pick.
He’s Her Brother’s Best Friend
Connor Green is trying to find himself again. He loved then lost and it’s time for him to pick up the pieces. His brooding is making his friends crazy, but, Maci Price, who has grown up into a gorgeous and incredibly sexy woman, is about to break the spell.
They’re Made for Each Other
When Maci starts up old pranks to get Connor out of his slump, an all out war leads to a night that will break all their rules, and a relationship they must keep hidden. Together they’re electric. Apart they’re safe. And soon they’ll find they’re exactly what the other needs.
A fabulous, fun, and sexy, New Adult novella from New York Times bestselling author Molly McAdams. If you loved Connor in From Ashes, this is the story for you.
Needing Her is a short novella. I liked it. It wasn’t fantabulous, but it was enjoyable. I found the plot to be interesting and I couldn’t wait to get started reading this one. Even though this is a short read, it did take me a bit to get through it.
My thoughts on the characters:
Maci. I liked her. I felt bad for her considering how her brothers threatened to take down any potential boyfriends she might have. She lives next door to Connor who is a police detective, and also her brothers best friend.
Speaking of her brothers. Did I like them? No. They were annoying as hell. Not so much the older two, but the twins. They were all over protective. Very over protective. The way they all spoke to Maci was harsh. It wasn’t playful banter. It was f* you or some other cuss word. I was sort of put off by that.
I liked Connor. Even though he dated… err I guess taking a willing female home for sex often isn’t really dating… He was a likable guy. He treated Maci like a little sister in the beginning though. In fact it seemed to me that he didn’t think of her in any other way until one day a spark ignited.
Maci & Connor liked to play pranks on each other. I thought they were hilarious. I laughed so hard at times. All I can say is that the shower and green kool-aid prank is epic.
Together I thought they made a good couple. They both had issues, but I think they were good together.
I really liked Maci’s friend Amber. Now she’s a secondary character I would like to see get her own book. She does have a boyfriend in this book, but the twins, well, they were definitely interested in her.
The sexual content is a bit hotter then adult mainstream. I had to fan myself quite a few times. It’s well written and plentiful.
Overall, I found Needing Her to be enjoyable. I like Ms McAdams writing style and I looking forward to reading more of her work in the future.

It's Wait for You as you've never seen it. Trust in Me lets you in on Cam's side of the #1 New York Times bestselling story.
Cameron Hamilton is used to getting what he wants, especially when it comes to women. But when Avery Morgansten comes crashing into his life—literally—he finally meets the one person who can resist his soulful baby blues. But Cam's not ready to give up. He can't get the feisty and intriguing girl out of his head.
Avery has secrets, secrets that keep her from admitting the feelings Cam knows she has for him. Will persistence (and some delicious homemade cookies) help him break down her barriers and gain her trust? Or will he be shut out of Avery's life, losing his first real shot at the kind of love that lasts forever?
I absolutely loved Wait for You (book one) and Cameron. So when Trust in Me was announced I couldn’t wait to read it and get Cam’s POV on how things played out between both him and Avery. Some readers aren’t a fan of authors writing subsequent books or novellas from the heroes POV. I happen to enjoy it. It’s interesting to experience things from the heroes perspective.
Cameron. He is perfect. Well, at first he’s described as a ladies man, but I didn’t really get that vibe from him. It was hinted at, but there just wasn’t anything there to back it up. Not only is he hot, but he also bakes. *swoon*
There were a couple times tears came to my eyes. Even though I read the first book I still wanted to cry when things looked bleak.
The sexual scenes. There weren’t many of them. I can understand why. The fact that they were limited didn’t take away from the story at all.
Overall, I think Ms Lynn did a great job writing this novella. Next up is Teresa & Jase’s book. I cannot wait to read it. It’s going to be so good. If you’re a fan of new adult contemporary romance I highly suggest this series.
