Review...The Hierarchy Of Needs by: Rebecca Grace Allen
Jamie Matthews is stuck in a rut. After hitting a wall with her dream career, she’s back in her hometown, living a life as monotonous as swimming laps in the neighborhood pool.
Being surrounded by her perfect brothers is a painful reminder of her failure to launch. The last bonfire of the summer is an ideal way to let off steam, especially when she runs into Dean Trescott, the playboy friend she had one hot-as-hell night with back in high school.
Since the day Dean met Jamie, he’s loved her beauty, talent, and smile that lit up the whole damn block. But dating isn’t an option. She has a bright future ahead of her, and he refuses to chain her to his—helping run the family business that’s barely staying afloat.
A “what-happens-in-Vegas” weekend was supposed to get their craving for each other out of their systems. But neither counted on the past repeating itself, drawing them together in even hotter and dirtier ways and dangling the possibility they might both be able to get exactly what they need…
Warning: A friends-to-lovers twice over story that contains some hot ’n’ heavy kissing in the waves, hair pulling, and a man who knows how to use his hands. It may also feature a few practical jokes—only the fun kind, of course.
My Review: Review copy provided
Another super cute read by Rebecca Grace Allen! There are characters in this book that were in her first book...
Duality Principle<<< my review
It's a standalone though so you don't have to read the first...but you should. ;)
Jamie (h) is unhappy with the way her life has turned out. She isn't doing what she wants and she feels like the black sheep of the family. All her siblings are successful but she hasn't really found her path yet. She uses her pranks and silliness to hide that she feels like an underdog in her house.
Dean (H) the known player and also one of Jamie's great friends has always loved the animated and beautiful person Jamie is but he knows he could never live up to her or her families expectations. His business with his father is barely making it and he would never want to bring Jamie down with him.
They both have an undeniable attraction to each other so they decide to have one weekend to get it out of their system. WOW what a weekend!
Will they be able to move on after and remain friends? Or will this destroy everything?
I really enjoyed this book, it's a quick read, (one sitting for me) and doesn't have a ton of angst. Both the H and h are very likable characters and Jamie is pretty funny. I got a few laughs out of it too. Great for a beach/summer read!
