Rules are tossed aside when a pro football player join forces with a spitfire cheerleading coach in New York Times bestselling author Lorelei James’s brand-new romance…

Heir to Lund Enterprises and ladies’ man Jensen “The Rocket” Lund has three conditions when it comes to dating: 1) No single mothers2) No cheerleaders3) No medical personnelSo it makes no sense that he’s wildly attracted to Rowan Michaels, who breaks all three.

Rowan Michaels didn’t pass the rigorous requirements to become an athletic trainer and Vikings cheerleader in the hopes of landing a pro athlete: been there, done that, and she has a young son as proof that football players and fidelity don’t go hand in hand. When Rowan learns her new neighbor is Jensen Lund, the smoking-hot tight end who takes being neighborly to a whole new level, she’s grateful for the team’s strict “no fraternization” policy because the sexy man defines temptation.

But Jensen is intent on rushing straight to the goal line to prove to Rowan he’s much more than just a player…on and off the field.


Lorelei James delivers a sexy and engaging sports romance with When I Need You, and it is one of my favorite reads of the summer. Jensen Lund and Rowan Michaels are two extremely likable characters, and their romance is heart-warming.

Jensen is a star professional football player, who is not interested in single mothers, cheerleaders, or medical practitioners. Rowan checks all three of these boxes; therefore, it seems unlikely that Jensen would ever be interested in her. Wrong. Jensen might have rules for dating, but he’s immediately intrigued and drawn to Rowan even though she’s everything he claimed he never wanted.

Rowan is attracted to Jensen, but she has no interest in getting involved with a football player. But when Jenson lays on the charm, he is irresistible. Their relationship develops at the perfect place as the sexual tension builds, and readers will be captivated by their love story. I adore Jensen, and I love this charming and passionate romance.
