Alexa Riley Author. BB Easton Author. I kept wanting to cry every time she fucking spoke. She so delicate with a dirty mind and I want to be her. I felt like I was watching porn in some of the scenes. Ben will always own my lips not the ones on my face and Luke, my bean but Reed can so have the nipples!
View all 6 comments. Reed is an impossible flirt. Have you watched that show, Heart of Dixie? You know Wade, the bartender? Reed reminds me of him. Until he meets Beth Beth is the new girl in town. She has issues and is loo LIVE! She has issues and is looking for a fresh start. He sees a pretty girl and wants into her pants.
As they get to know each other a. Beth feels sorry for Reed and pretends to be his girlfriend and accepts the invite. I like that Beth is so sweet towards Reed. I loved that she felt his emotions and wanted to help him out. Beth really likes Reed. She tries very hard to help him move past his issues by being supportive, yet not clingy. It was a bit difficult for me to connect with Reed.
I thought he was hot, sexy and very manly, but his guarded heart was hard for me to push through. I understand his issues. I feel for him. Okay, Beth has her faults too. She does push back too and I did enjoy those parts. I thought the steam between Beth and Reed was major hot. Daniels super hit the mark on this one. I was blushing like a little girl. You also get the gang from the previous books so yay! So if you love the series, this will make you happy. View all 8 comments. I absolutely can't get enough of J. Daniels' writing!! This is without a doubt my favorite of the Alabama Summer series!
Reed only does one night with a girl and never speaks to her again. That's all he needs. In All I Want, we were given a little insight to what made Reed the way he is. He won't let that happen again. Beth is new in town. After her mother suddenly dies from drug I absolutely can't get enough of J. After her mother suddenly dies from drug overdose, she moves to Ruxton to stay with her aunt and uncle who she never knew existed, until now.
Reed and Beth meet at McGill's Pub, which happens to be owned by her aunt and uncle. Beth isn't like the other girls in town and Reed needs to get his fill of her. But just one kiss will knock Reed on his ass and everything he thought he wanted goes right out the window. I loved these two from their very first interaction. It was smooth, fun, and natural. They have amazing chemistry! Their text messages had me laughing my ass off!
And I can't begin to explain the perfection that is Reed!! He is a dirty, dirty boy. Just the way I like them. I love his filthy mouth and his bedroom adventures. Mmm mmm. This book was everything I wanted it to be! It was sexy, hilarious, and even sad at times. I don't think there's another author out there who makes me laugh and swoon quite like J.
Daniels can. I've been hooked on her writing since Sweet Addiction. But look out Reese, Reed is my new book boyfriend!! I urge everyone who loves a good laugh, sexiness, and fun, memorable characters, to pick up her books. View 2 comments. I was going to get fancy and fill this with images and quotes, but honestly sometimes a good book with good writing by a great author just doesn't need it! So quickly, this is book 3 and it is no less than stellar than the first 2. Reed Tennyson was always the cool cat. The mysterious, sexy king of the one-nighters, but he is amazingly loyal and fun all around.
HE just doesn't believe in love and relationships. Reed is no different Enter Beth With a hard life and no comfort to embrace her, she comes to Alabama for a chance for family. Her hard life never dulls the smile that fills her face. Lucky for Reed, she just cant help falling for his sexy act, especially when his "I don't date" persona looks suddenly wrecked when his ex strolls back in town!
I cannot say this wasn't predictable, but damn if it still wasn't fabulous. Great friends to lovers. Great building of emotions and laying of strong foundations. Great sexual chemistry and explosive against the wall intimacy. Reed many not know how to be in love, but damn if the man cant make love! Good thing for him that Beth can give as good as she gets!!!!
Never met a gal in a book that was so perfectly matched for a bad boy! Kudos to J. Daniels for a fun, hot and perfectly ended read in this series! View all 12 comments. Wow, so dirty, so hot, but so freaking sweet too!! I love these Alabama boys! Full review to come. View all 4 comments. Daniels Fans, Dirty talk, Romance.

A little wiser but hopefully not too bitter and willing to be open for the next possible chance coming our way. Guys, though They first are not to show their emotions; to get them to admitting they care for you So, when you have a fella who put himself out there and discovered the girl he was willing to wait for and marry Reed was destroyed by his high school girlfriend It was so bad, Reed decided then and there to Never, repeat Never to feel for a woman, let alone love one Nope, the game plan was to stick his dick He keep his mind busy with his family, friends and construction work.
He got laid regularly on his schedule. Things became difficult when he heard his ex was back in this small town Beth is another person just trying to get by. She had a hard life for a young person; mother- a drug addict, no father and then the mother's untimely death. She had to figure out survival; slept in her car and tried to go it alone until she couldn't. All she had of her mother was a shoebox full of old photos She finally took a look in that box one day She packed up what little she had and left the man who took her in when she was at her lowest He told her she would be back as she left him Beth drives to her new Aunt and Uncle.
She is excited to have a chance at a life different then the one she has lived and was recently living.

Beth takes this one step further and proclaims she and Reed as a couple. Ex informs of her engagement party as a top that Beth does by saying they will be there to wish her well causing ex to stomp away. What the Hell just happened Beth explains to Reed she just wanted to help with putting that bitch in her place.
He can either go to the party or not This was an amazing read. There were characters from the other books, fully formed and with their own stories. It was not difficult to see what was what with them There was humor and care between all of them and we felt that. Reed was love-smacked. He was done. The Stick-a-fork-in-me -I-am-done He was so smitten with Beth These two characters belonged together She had the understanding of it sooner than him. He was scared shitless And let the romance begin I only had one little,tiny complaint; Beth was so perceptive and able to see all of Reed's needs.
She was not a silly girl and an action she did frustrated me causing me to deduct a quarter star I know It was a wonderful read and I hear from my friends who have read the other books in the series So go Daniels; enjoy and be prepared to fall for Reed I did.

We'll just call it a day at 3. I don't have it in me to do a full-length review. I've been so disappointed with some of the recent new releases that I think I'm totally going to change how I select my next reads I guess it's another case of, it's not you, it's m 3. I guess it's another case of, it's not you, it's me because this one definitely seemed to be a crowd pleaser. Here's the thing, I'm finding that a lot of the recent releases are written according to a recipe: hot sex, dirty talking "alpha" male, some laughs, some angst, and a whole lotta drama Where's the depth?
Where's the intimacy? It's like eating a meal with no flavor. I enjoyed her writing style and, don't get me wrong, I laughed my ass of a few times here. But once again, I think this is another book that had the potential to be soooo much better. Well, until the very end I loved the secondary characters. I loved the premise of the book.
I loved the witty writing style. I loved the humor. Some of the text exchanges were damn hilarious! If I were evaluating it as one of those, I would've given it 4. But, why can't we have all that PLUS some depth, emos, feels, and intimacy??

If you tell me Contemporary Romance, that is exactly what I am going to expect Reed was a frustrating hero and I didn't find him to be "alpha" at all. The author didn't sell me on why his past with Molly was still effecting him to such an extent, 9 years later. As a result, at times he came through like a whiny little bitch to me. I also really didn't like view spoiler [ how he acted after the first time that they hooked up at the engagement party.
His response was, "let's go get a drink. That's being an ass, not a swoony, sexy, alpha male hero.
American Ballet Theatre
The book needed A LOT more intimacy and depth between the two main characters. I think this is the main area where the author missed her mark here. There was more depth and range of emotion in the secondary storyline btwn Mia and Ben than there was in the whole rest of the book btwn Beth and Reed, IMO. The conflict at the end? Drama llama So I am supposed to believe that view spoiler [ Beth would run right back to Rocco, a man who she admitted verbally and emotionally abused her on the daily, just because Reed, who told her he sucks at relationships, didn't return her "I love you" proclamation on the first time she said it?
So she is going to leave the safe environment of her aunt and uncle's house to willingly put herself back in an abusive environment? I'm sorry Totally OTT and unbelievable to me. If this was the case, that she would do something like that, then her character was not fleshed out nearly enough, therefore making these actions come out of total left field to me. She would have had to have a lot of low self-esteem and self-loathing issues going on in order for me to believe this, neither of which I got from her character.
The epilogue I have trouble believing that this would ever happen in real life. Again, I did really like a few components of the story and take my review lightly because I am in the vast minority here. This was my first read by this author. I understand from reading other reviews that a lot feel that her writing has improved with each book. For that reason, I would be willing to read her again because I did see some major potential here. I just thought this book desperately needed some balance All in all, if you're looking for a quick, simple, sexy read that will make you laugh, you'll probably love this book!!
But if you're looking for a full, in depth, emotional read, with some deep character development View all 18 comments. I don't think anyone is more shocked than me that I'm giving this book 5 stars after the last book in this series. It was so good though! Reed is a man whore. Usually that makes me run far away After my informant told me it was safe though, I dived right in. I really loved Beth.
She was funny and strong. Reed was dirty. My favorite kind of dirty though. They were by far my fav couple this author has written. I loved little Nolan and his little tool belt. The bathroom scene in the club? Reed got I don't think anyone is more shocked than me that I'm giving this book 5 stars after the last book in this series. Reed got my stamp of approval!
This one is a must read. Why; you spell it Alabama Summer series by J. Daniels of course. We fell in love with everything. The writing is superb across the series; sexy, passionate, beautiful and incredibly emotional and raw at times. Everyone feels like close friends of ours now and they have stolen our hearts. Daniels to our automatic 1Click list of Authors. Even when you think you have none, it refuses to lie down quietly.
Reed has taunted and teased us with his exploits and to say we thought his story was going to sizzle was an understatement to what actually transpired. This man….. He does not hold back. And…guess what? How amazingly HOT! But with Reed, his confidence only adds to what makes him appealing. However, not only that, he was an incredible friend. A loyal compassionate man with a heart of pure gold. That is until Beth.
And both times have been with you. Beth hugs her kindle — we hug our kindles — ergo this is LOVE. Sleep evaded me. Their intense want and need. The overwhelming desire and inability to take a breath without the presence of the other. We felt every step of their path; we laughed with them and at them — at their antics. We cried big fat tears at the emotional parts and we felt the feverish moments of animalistic passion that had us desperate for some freezer time to cool ourselves for a bit of a time-out.
This Author brought it all to us as she highlighted once again the beauty of friendships and love, through new eyes, whilst bringing back the loves and perfection from those past. View all 5 comments. I am in love with J Daniels' Alabama Series. If you have not read this series yet you are seriously missing out.
When I Fall is Reed and Beth's story an the third book in this series. Reed is one of Tessa's best friends and the local manwhore of Ruxton. And of course I love a good manwhore. Reed's heart has been closed off for the last nine years after he found his girlfriend in bed 5 You and Me Stars! Reed's heart has been closed off for the last nine years after he found his girlfriend in bed with another.
He doesn't ever want to feel that way again so he's made sure not to let anyone get close. If he never lets anyone in he can keep his heart safe. Beth comes from a difficult background. Her mother is an alcoholic who passes away and leaves her all alone. When Beth finds out she has family that lives in Alabama she quickly picks up and moves to Alabama to live with her Aunt and Uncle. It's her chance to actually have a real family, people she can depend on.
When Reed sees Beth in his local bar, he walks up to her with his usual game plan in mind.. But little did he know that just one kiss would be all it would take to turn his world upside down. The chemistry between these two could be FELT while reading. I enjoyed watching their relationship grow. Beth was just so genuine, you couldn't help but love her. She did everything she could to help Reed face his ex-girlfriend when she came back to town.
And Reed's dirty talking completely took away any chance Beth had of resisting him. I absolutely loved Ben from the beginning and the way he made it clear to everyone how much he loved Mia. While Reed made my book boyfriend list, watching Ben go through the situation with Mia in this book immediately moved him onto my book husband list. I love J Daniels for bringing these amazing Bama Boys to us. She quickly became one of my favorite authors after reading her Sweet Addiction series.
I would highly recommend both series. I'm really looking forward to the next book which is CJ and Riley's story. View all 20 comments. Apr 04, Alba and Her Secrets.. My God. These Alabama boys are making my heart and my panties flip! This series keeps getting better and better with each book. Every now and then, when I am in the mood to get back to a series, I always get back to the ones that I loved.
The Alabama Summer series by J. Daniels is one of those. When I Fall is the third installment in this series and it tells the love story between the playboy in the Alabama crew, Reed Tennyson, and the young woman looking for a new life after living a bad past, Beth Davis. Reed has sworn off love, he was hurt in the past by a woman and he is not having it. He surely is a one-night-stand type of guy. At least he is until he meets his one true love: Beth. Beth is starting a new life, she is enjoying being with her aunt and uncle and she loves the sparks she feels when she is near Reed.
Prepare because this ride will become sweet, sexy and emotional especially when feelings get involved! You see that I had to come over here. Daniels stole my heart with her Sweet Addition series but I do confess that The Bama boys and the women in their lives are also taking a piece of my heart! I loved the interations with all these characters loved seeing Ben, Mia, Luke and Tessa again!
I really enjoyed the start with the "fake relationship" they have, the sexual tension and all those feels! Gah, J. Daniels kills it everytime! Every inch, Beth. All of you.
All I Want
You and me. Of course, as you can imagine if you have read anything by this author before , Reed is one hell of a dirty talker. Oh yeah, the sex is off-the-charts and you'll definitely enjoy all that yummyness. But what I also love about this books is that they can also get very heartfelt. The past of both main characters is not as easy as the present they are living especially Beth's but these two are so strong together and they fight for what they feel. I loved how sentimental it got towards the end and I am so happy this couple ended up together and happy!
No one else. Daniels delivered another stunning love story and another outstanding couple. The series keeps getting better and better for me and this story was gold: I loved Reed and his brave girl! Highly recommend reading this one. Beth Davis. Oh lord BETH! This woman by far is my favorite heroine from any of J's books. In all honesty, every one of her heroines are fierce, independent, badass women!
But Beth, ugh she has this sweetness to her yet she's still sassy, and she's a total minx, just as filthy as Reed lol. This book will have your feels pulled in different directions. One moment you'll be laughing and the next crying. I must give it to J , for she knows how to use the secondary characters perfectly in a story making sure that they intertwine. And she does it in a way where you will never be able to forget them Nolan!!! I was taken on a journey of self discovery and I loved every moment of it. J , thank you for the Bama Boys ; for my heart loves them all but Reed is on a whole other level.
He's a rare breed A mystical creature. I really enjoyed When I Fall and as my first read from the series, it made me wish I'd read the other 2 books first. Both characters were very likeable, the side characters too, the romance was hot, fun, and interesting. I liked Reed's obsessiveness when it came to Beth, his inner-monologue was sharp and witty. And Beth, well, she had a heart of gold. There were funny situations, a touch of drama and a little bit of hot sex.
All in all, it was a solid read that I couldn't fault, or put down. May 16, J. One time too many. Now LIVE on all platforms! I need this tonight. I need somethin 'I was in love once. I need something to break up my routine of getting off work and then getting off at home. Maybe I can convince Mia to have game night tomorrow too. I love my dick. I push the door open without bothering to knock. We can get this much needed distraction started. I step into the kitchen and set my beers on the table. Standing at the end of the counter, he lowers the beer in his hand as his lips pinch together in a thin line.
Tessa and Mia are talking behind him, not having noticed me yet. Ben nudges Luke with his elbow, and the two of them share a look before heading in my direction. I grab one of my beers and pop the top. Ben speaks first. Or put it down and get the hell out of here.
What the fuck? Have Reed try and guess what the hell you two idiots are getting at? Just say it, already. I suck at charades. I open my mouth to ask them what the hell is going on, but it all becomes clear when my eyes are drawn to Beth, standing next to CJ. Standing with CJ. Looking all comfortable and shit.
Beth fucking Davis. The same fucking boots on her feet. Making my chest tight. My dick hard. My mind a fucking scrambled mess. What the fuck is she doing here? A hand slaps me on the back of my head. Ben mumbles something about me being an asshole. I pull my attention off Beth and see the agitated glares being directed at me by everyone else in the room.
Tessa is looking particularly murderous. I said that out loud? I look at Beth, her big, brown eyes expanding and pinning me to the wall. Her lips pinched together in distress.
Fuck, I need to explain. I look at him, ready to throw his ass out the nearest window. He looks at me, lifting his chin into a friendly nod. You know Beth? Do I know Beth? Yeah, motherfucker. I know her more than you ever will. I could kiss that woman. Always having my back. Beth looks at me briefly, then shakes her head as Mia pulls a chair out for her. Mia smiles. CJ can show you. CJ claims one of the chairs next to Beth. Mia takes the other. Fuck it. I take the last remaining seat at the table, putting me directly across from Beth. As Ben stands and deals out the cards, Tessa leans closer to me, chin resting on her hand, looking guilty as shit as the grin spreads across her face.
Ben sits in his chair. Beth, you know how to play now? As if mine is the only one that matters to her. Is it? Is it the only one that matters? Lowering my beer, I keep her gaze and slowly shake my head. She blinks several times, then looks back down at her cards. I chug half my beer. CJ laughs, slips his arm behind her, and rests it on the back of her chair. The room goes quiet. Or is the word Beth too difficult for you to remember? I grit my teeth, looking around at the six pairs of eyes on me. I then toss the two of clubs out in the center of the table, starting the game.
Ben takes his turn, then CJ. She tosses a five of hearts on the stack. Right, yeah, I knew that. Her eyes slowly lift to mine. He sets his cards down. Until you get the hang of it. Her chin trembles. A hand covers her mouth. I reach out to stop her, but a sharp sting cracks against my shin. I think you hurt her feelings. Why the fuck is she even here? Fuck that. I get up in his face.
He leans back and takes a swig of his beer, then frowns at Tessa. I look over at Tessa. How is this helping me? I fucking hate game night. View all 3 comments. This book. I'm so in love with it, and with Reed, that I'm kind of at a loss for words. Except I'm not. Because When I Fall was spectacular, heartfelt, sweet, dirty, kinky and amazing, and the book I wanted from the minute Reed appeared in Where I Belong.
Reed Tennyson is a man-whore. To protect his stupid heart from getting him hurt, he follows his cock. And that works for him. Until her. She's new in town, and has a heart-stopping smile that makes him want to agree to anything. And This book. And when Reed's ex saunters back into the picture and throws him off his game even more, he finds himself in an awkward situation. With her. Suddenly, his cock isn't the only one calling the shots. His heart wants back in the game. But what if it leads him back into heartbreak? I just love him.
Talks to his dick? Tips obscene amounts of money? So generous. Wants to tie you to a bed and f--ck five ways to Sunday? He can dirty talk me anytime. Or sweet talk me, that works too. As a very lucky and proud beta reader, I got to see this book in many forms, and this final version was spot-on, book perfection. It was laugh-out-loud funny.
It was sexy And it was more. It was about friendship, about being there for someone no matter what. It was about facing your choices, and trying to make the right ones. It was about believing in yourself, in your heart and in your ability to trust. And it was about love. When I Fall was unbelievably real; from the friendly, teasing banter that friends who love each other share, to the deep connection between two people that just know , even when they don't know, that's it's right and true and strong. Every one wants that love.
I have it with this book and this author.
