She’s my employee.
I want him.
I can’t resist her.
It’s been a while since I’ve gotten my hands on a Kaylee Ryan novel, so when I heard about I Just Want You, I couldn’t wait to dive in.
Told from dual points of view, I Just Want You follows the story of Crew and Berklee. Once upon a time, Crew was living the easy life. He worked construction during the day and partied all night. All that was about change when a relative he never knew about left him a significant inheritance. Now, Crew is taking the business world by storm and is getting ready to open one of the hottest clubs around. But, who knew that getting a morning cup of coffee was about to change his world again…Berklee is no where near the life she thought she’d be living. She has a business degree, but has had no luck putting it to use. She doesn’t want to spend the rest of her life working in a coffee shop, but what’s a girl to do?
I Just Want You was a quick and fun read. I fell in love with both Crew and Berklee the moment I meant them. Berklee turned Crew’s world totally upside down and made him want things he never dreamed up. Crew was a great book boyfriend. He was devoted to Berklee. I found his alpha tendencies to be very entertaining and couldn’t wait to see how he would behave next. I adored Berklee. Not only was she smart, but she was also very careful with her heart. She tried to not let herself get too caught up in Crew without knowing where they stood. Together, I think Crew and Berklee made a fun pair. They were both very smart and had an amazing connection. Berklee may have brought out Crew’s alpha side, but she also knew how to calm him. Overall, I just thought they were an entertaining couple and really enjoyed watching them fall.
II Just Want You was everything that I was looking for in a Kaylee Ryan novel. The romance was sexy and sweet at the same time. The characters were a lot of fun and there are definitely a few side characters that I’d love to know more about, so here’s hoping. I Just Want You had just the right amount of drama, angst, romance and steam. If I had to make one complaint, it would be that I felt a certain moment towards the end was a little rushed. I just needed a little bit more from this particular part, maybe a little more groveling and slower ease back into things–I know I’m being super vague here, but I don’t want to spoil anything.
Despite the one little issue I had with this story, I think this book was a really great read and a fun story to spend the afternoon getting lost in.
