Bestselling author Lorelei James introduces a brand new contemporary romance series with What You Need. This sexy office romance is about what happens when two people learn to let go of their pasts and begin rethinking the roles they should play.

Lennox Greene has been there, done that when it comes to living in the moment. She’s toured with a band, decorated her body with ink and played the part of a rebellious teen. But that’s all behind her, and she’s ready to fully embrace the buttoned-up atmosphere of her new job. What she didn’t account for was the company’s CFO feeling the need to get in touch with his wild side, preferably with her help.

Brady Lund is used to having all of the responsibilities. As the first-born and an important member in his family’s business, he’s burdened with both 80-hour workweeks and the pressure to settle down with a worthy girl. His life has been privileged and regimented for as long as he can remember, though after catching Lennox out at a bar one night, he finds that he wants a taste of the freedom and fun that seems to exude from her tattooed skin.

 Could the rumors circulating around the water cooler be true?

Lennox and Brady are complete opposites in every way, from their upbringing to their family dynamics. However, Brady hopes that Lennox can teach him how to live a little, and, in the process, Lennox will learn that there’s a happy medium between the life she lived and the one she's living. But as Brady and Lennox spend more time together and their romance becomes public, they have to wonder if the rumors circulating around the water cooler are true: Could Brady just be interested in a flavor of the week to break up the monotony, and could Lennox just be looking for a way to get ahead at work?

Though this isn’t a book about cowboys or martial arts experts like previous James novels, fans of her writing will recognize the way Lennox and Brady’s attraction sizzles off the page—their chemistry is unmistakable, even when they’re too stubborn to admit it. What You Need is a fantastic start to a new series and one that James fans will be clamoring to read.
