“Go to college,” they said. “Get a good job,” they said. “It will be a piece of cake.” Well, whoever they are, they lied. Sure, college was a blast, but after college, not so much. The finding a job to go with my expensive education, that part was not so easy. At least not until I was offered a position at the new club in town.
Life is defined by the little moments that have the power to change it completely. I never thought getting a cup of coffee would change mine, but it did. She did. She’s one of those moments.
He’s my boss. She’s my employee. I want him. I can’t resist her.
3 1/2 out of 5 stars
I loved Kaylee Ryan’s Southern Pleasure, so I was excited to see she had a new book out. I Just Want You is the story of Crew Ledger, a man who is opening a club in his town. In the mornings, he goes into the local coffee shop where he is greeted by Berklee, and he’s instantly attracted to her.
Berklee is a recent college graduate, with a degree in business, who is having a hard time finding a job due to her lack of experience. Crew’s best friend, Zane, has been hired as the head of security for the club, and he hires Berklee to be the administrator of the club, to handle all the office stuff.
Berklee and Crew have off the charts chemistry, but they both feel that pursuing a relationship would be hard since they work together. After a while (a long while), they finally succumb to their wants.
I know that both characters are young, and at times, I forgot how old they were, because they acted mature. Then there were other times they acted like petulant children. Crew was extremely possessive and jealous and overbearing. But, Berklee was pretty immature and insecure at times too.
This was an entertaining read, and I would love for Zane or Maggie (the best friends) to have their own book.
