WTF?!?! What I Need by J. Daniels


⭐️⭐️💫2.5 CJ STARS💫⭐️⭐️

I’m not going to say it was a horrible book because it wasn’t.

I’m not going to say it was a good book because it wasn’t.

I’m leaning more on the side of pointless. Yeah, definitely pointless.

This one is going to get pretty messy, fair warning. I can’t help but be truthful here.

What I Need by J. Daniels should have been so much better than it was but I’m thinking she may need to take a break from writing. She is seriously fucking up her good name. In the past I would hear that she was coming out with a new book and be crazy excited – that is not happening anymore. Now, when I hear she has a new book coming out I’m just praying she got her skills back.

Let’s start with a quick word from the author…


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…


Before I get started, I want to state a fact… this is not personal, this is just me reading and reviewing. If you are an avid J. Daniels lover, I highly suggest you stop here and don’t read any further because you’re not going to like me too much after this.

When I read books I normally make really cute graphics and all that jazz. The characters I use are what I see in my head when I’m reading. Let me introduce  Riley and CJ.

I just couldn’t picture Riley, it was like she wasn’t even there. 🤷🏾‍♀️ I could see CJ, no problem. He’s the only reason this book got any kind of stars from me. I feel like his character was wasted in this book. He deserved to be in a good book, with a good story line.

I don’t know what the hell CJ saw in Riley. This book is proof that all you need is a pretty face and a tight pussy for someone to have a connection with you. The story kinds of revolves around the idea the two of them meeting and with 2.6 minutes they find out how deep their connection is. What-the-fuck-ever! 🤦🏾‍♀️

Here’s the thing, after Riley finally had good sex she became what I like to call dickmatized. 🤣😂🤣😂 You’ve heard of that before, right. If not, I will share the definition.

Dickmatize: To mesmerize or enchant a woman with you sexual prowess. Impressed by or obsessed with a penis.

She had a someone break her off a little something, something and forgot she had a man at home. Riley acted like a damn child in this book. They only real conflict in this book between Riley and CJ was the fact that she didn’t want to tell her brother Reed that they were fucking. Seriously, that is it!

J. Daniels, you couldn’t do better than that? We all know you can. Do you need someone to talk to? Do you need someone to bounce ideas off of? I’m here for you, love.

I’m all about motivation.

CJ? Perfection!

Riley? Childish!

While Riley was busy trying to keep her brother from finding out that her and CJ weren’t together, I was busy trying to figure out how it wasn’t obvious. I mean come on! Your sister moves in with this guy because he broke his ankle and needs a live in nurse. Seriously? Am I the only one who sees how ridiculous that is. For starters, she wasn’t even a nurse – she was a nursing student. Trust me there is a major difference between a nurse and a nursing student. He broke his ankle not his leg! He didn’t need no damn live in nurse.

Riley’s ex boyfriend is the reason why CJ broke his ankle and she says sorry like a million and one times. We get it. You feel bad. But let’s talk about how her ex was in jail for months over this shit. How in the hell did he never post bond? That was just another unrealistic thing that bothered me when I was reading.

What the fuck did I do in a previous life to deserve this kind of torture? – CJ

I felt the same way while reading this damn book. I felt like the author was trying to prove her point so much in the book she just started repeating everything. Whenever CJ would say something nice and sweet, I guarantee it was repeated over and over and over and over and over again.

We all got the picture as far as CJ being a great guy. He says the sweetest things and treats Riley how a female should be treated. But if J. Daniels reminded me one more time about how awesome he was I was going to kill myself. Not really – I love me some me too much for that shit but you get the point.

I can’t even tell you how many times I put this book down because I got so bored. It just wasn’t very interesting. I didn’t expect it be some noble peace prize type of shit but I at least wanted to be entertained. A good 78% of the book was repetitive. It was a good thing I had Jax from Sons of Anarchy to occupy my time.

As much as I loved CJ, I did wish he had a little more alpha male in him. But it wasn’t a big deal that he wasn’t. I still loved him just the same. I just couldn’t stand his girl.

Because I’m good friend I wouldn’t recommend any of my girls to read this book. But if you are like me and had to read about the other Bama Boy from the series, than sure. We would have to make a deal that you can’t buy this book and just borrow mine. I would feel terrible is my homegirl wasted her money. Hahahahahaha!!!! JK!!! The book was cheap was fuck so it’s no skin off anyone’s back.

Before I get all pretty and dolled up again, there’s just one more mess I have to share. I have to share a link to my IG post on this book. J. Daniels stans were going crazy because I called one of her books shit. If they thought that was bad then they have never actually read my blog. They would really be pissed. I found this quite entertaining too. Just remember that I can’t spell for shit, my grammar is shit and my jokes fall on deaf eyes.



Follow all my messy moments…



Hey there! I'm Danielle! I just a girl who loves books. I love books so much that I talk about the stories like they are real. Who knows? Maybe, they are real to me. I do love the book world, it's way better than reality. . .sometimes. . .because. . .I'm also a proud mama bear, wife, and mother!

  1. Hilarious review as always babe. Can’t. Stop. Laughing. I’ve never read her, not sure I’m gonna start now🙈

    1. Thanks love! ❤😘❤😘 The bad thing is she’s not a bad writer. Her recent books just suck. I’m hoping she will get back to her old self again. But I have noticed that after some authors get a bit of fame or notoriety, their writing begins to suck.
