Summary

From New York Times best-selling author J. Daniels comes a sexy new stand-alone novel.

Riley Tennyson has made a huge mistake.

At least that's what she keeps telling herself.

Showing up to her brother's wedding pissed off and newly single, Riley seeks comfort in solitude and an open bar...until the gorgeous and irresistibly charming CJ Tully makes her a better offer - a wild night with the master of smooth-talking where nothing is off limits.

Riley does what any single woman would do, and a connection is made. One neither one of them can ignore. But when she comes home to the boyfriend she no longer thought she had, Riley buries her secret and begs CJ to do the same.

Forget about each other. It was a mistake. That's all it was...right?

Desires are hidden. Distance is kept. Until one night CJ makes the ultimate sacrifice, and Riley can no longer avoid the man she can't stop thinking about.

Not with him sleeping down the hall.

Great Sexy, Feel Good Romance!

Great feel good sexy book! I really enjoyed this book. The characters were realistic, funny and the sex scenes were very hot! I love a good guy in my romance books so CJ had me from the beginning. I really liked the relationship between these too, it was new and exciting, they were sweet, cute and they couldn't keep their hands off each other. The drama was very low which was another huge plus for me.

The narration was perfect! Stella Bloom was perfect with the southern accent!
Highly recommend if your looking for your next sexy feel good romance!!

Secret romance. 1POV. HEA. Standalone.

This is a “hot damn” romance with angst. It’s a somewhat easy listen. The narration is great. The HEA is short but sweet. This can be listened as a standalone but there are several books previous to this.

Tully Train

I loved everything about this story. J.Daniels is amazing like always. Without giving much away. CJ will always be my favorite book boyfriend ever. We see the story between him and Riley as she struggles with her situation.

Absolutely loved this book!

God, I love this book! CJ is so amazing. Those "Darlin's" are so hot and extremely dangerous. The book was so well written that Riley got on my last damn nerve! I spent the whole book yelling at Riley to "MAN UP!!! Reed is your brother, not your father!!!" The performance of the actors are so incredible. I could sleep listening to Eric Micheal Summerer's voice... and do.

Excellent addition to the series

J. Daniels has added another great book to this series. The characters, especially CJ or hero, is a great guy. He's pretty much the all around man of the year. Riley the heroine can be a bit naive and for me that is an unattractive trait. I mean, there is being uninformed and then there is being a real dits.
The banter between Riley and CJ is fun and frisky. Daniels also includes the cast from the other books which keeps them all tied together.
Worth the purchase.

CJ is the man!

★¸¸.•*¨*•★Minor spoilers alert★•*¨*•.¸¸★

Writing style: Dual POVs

Cover and chapter design: I like this cover, but I especially love the chapter POV design graphic that matches it.

Dual format read – Yes or No?: Yes! Audiobook was my primary format, but I bookmarked and highlighted a few scenes in my e-book copy as well.

Performances rating: ★★★★★
Stella and Eric make a very dynamic narrating duo. I’m still loving their voice acting choices especially Eric’s for little Noah.

Story rating: ★★★1/2
My favorite thing about this 5th installment in the Alabama Summers series is CJ’s views on how a man treats a woman he’s dating. Nolan stole the show again. I couldn’t help but grin anytime he popped up in a scene. The fact that he already has a little girlfriend was too cute.

One of my favorite scenes was when Reed threatens CJ after CJ confessed how he really felt about Riley. I loved that Reed could laughingly concede he’d at least throw something at those big muscles of CJ’s in Riley’s honor if CJ broke her heart. I’m sure that won’t be necessary luckily for them both, ha!

•*¨*•
Coming up next text:
CJ’s brother Jake is apparently getting his own story in Say I'm Yours (Alabama Summer, #6). The release date is still to be confirmed, but I would definitely want to read it in dual formats (primarily via audiobook format) again. My ears will be super happy if audiobook narrators Stella Bloom and Eric Michael Summerer return with their consistently fantastic voice acting.
