Daniels’s Alabama Summer series just keeps getting better and better! When I Fall is Reed and Beth’s story, and to say I enjoyed it would be an understatement. In fact, it just became my new favorite J. Daniels book, edging out my long-time favorite, Sweet Addiction.

All I Want is the second book in the Alabama Summer series and my favorite so far. The story picks up a year after Tessa broke up with Luke at the end of Where I Belong. Luke still hasn’t forgiven Tessa for breaking his heart and keeping an important secret from him. Rather than admit he still has feelings for Tessa, he tries to erase her from his memory by turning into a manwhore and flaunting his sexcapades in Tessa’s face.
I’m a huge fan of Emma Chase’s Tangled series. There’s no love quite like your first love though so I approached Overruled with a combination of excitement and trepidation. I’m pleased to say I read it in one sitting so Emma Chase FTW! If you’re sensitive to themes of infidelity however, this might not be the book for you since cheating is involved – only not really. Let me break it down for you.
Sweet Addiction was my very first taste of erotica. The combination of baking and sex, sugar and spice made it the perfect introduction to the genre, and I jokingly blame J. Daniels for corrupting my sweet, innocent mind. I quickly gobbled up the second book, Sweet Possession, and I was sad to say goodbye to the quirky cast of characters I’d grown so fond of. So when I found out that man crazy Brooke was getting her very own book, I was beyond excited. J. Daniels crossing over characters from her Alabama Summer series? It was just icing on the cake.
So I’ve got this thing for cake batter. I know it has no nutritional value whatsoever. Whenever I’m baking a cake, I tell myself I’m going to leave just a little batter on the spoon to lick after I put the cake in the oven. Next thing I know I’m scraping the beaters and licking the bowl, my entire face covered with batter. Am I proud of this? No. What was my point? Oh yes. This isn’t an enlightening work of fiction. This isn’t an innocent little love story. This is no Pride and Prejudice. This is a graphically sexy, foul-mouthed, laugh-out-loud novel and I loved it.
