Need You Now is a novella from the 1,001 Dark Nights Series. It is an exciting introduction to Ms. Jones new upcoming series called Shattered Promise. I can honestly say that this novella was a pleasant surprise.

Danny and Jensen had an amazing attraction with each other after meeting at a bar. Not quite a one night stand, but something between them that cannot be left unexplored. Unfortunately, they find out the next day that not only they both are in the hotel business, they will also have to

You know I've said it time and time again....I'm simply not a fan of novellas.. and time and time again Lisa Renee Jones is ALWAYS the exception to the rule. Need You Now is a Prequel that leaves me in NEED OF MORE NOW! Wow she always manages to pack so much into so little with out it feeling rushed or forced. Jensen (Oh how I love his name) meets Danny at a bar on her best friends birthday... one thing leads to another and new heights could be reached. But was this meeting fate? or something pl ...more

How many complications can one night bring? Mixed with heat and a mysterious stranger, just enough to make this another amazing story from Lisa Renee Jones.

There was something about this one that I didn't care for right away. Not sure if it was the scene at the bar or the way that Danny seems like a doormat, or if it's how Jensen seems like an ass from the start. Whatever it is, in the end this one just wasn't for me.

Can you imagine bumping into someone and the pull is so strong that you somehow feel connected? This connection will change you and your life completely, making you throw caution to the wind and just finally live. Life for Danny changed just like that. A touch, a simple kiss awakened things inside of this good girl that she never gave anyone the chance to possess….

What a fantastic novella. I have never been a fan of Novella's, but Lisa Renee Jones is quickly changing my view on them.

Jensen and Danny are electric, their attraction is instant and deep, but when they find out exactly who the other is, things become complicated. Then, Danny's boss (Jensens Aunt) makes things even more complicated to these two. As they try to keep things professional, sexual tension builds until it finally explodes.

I so hope we get to find out more about this couple, I feel i

I received an ARC of this book and was a little hesitant. I love everything I've read by this author, but I was afraid she couldn't possibly come up with new intriguing characters or a new storyline. I am very pleased to say I was wrong. very wrong.

Lisa does a great job of creating strong yet vulnerable characters that find what they need in each other in spite of not knowing they need it.

well done, Lisa!!

This is a prelude book to a new series called Shattered Promises. I have to say this was a very short but entertaining read.

The book follows Danielle/ Danny Woods and the opening Danny is out with her friend Katie who is having a birthday. Danny meets Jensen and has an almost one night stand at the hotel where she works. The next morning Danny finds out that Jensen is more than he let on. The two must wo

I really enjoyed it! Danny is biding her time at her job until she can attend med school. Danny doesn’t step outside the lines until Jenson tempts her. She's immediately drawn to this sexy stranger and she's tempted to follow her hormones instead of her head. Jenson is an intelligent, powerful man and after she learns who he really is, Danny doesn't know how much she can really trust him even though they have explosive chemistry. I'm left wanting more of Danny and Jenson!

A sexy, seductive start to a new series…

This novella is the prelude to the Shattered Promises series. It is an intriguing start, two strangers meet and there is an instant connection that throws them off kilter and cannot be denied. Upon a second meeting soon after, they act on that connection without thought of the consequences and in so doing set off a chain of events for fate has decided that this is not to be a one night encounter.

She has a chance encounter and immediate over the top sexual attraction with Jenson. The chemistry is explosive. Danny becomes nervous of yet again being heartbroken and runs out on Jensen only to find out the next day that he is the nephew of her boss and they will now be working together. Can Danny ...more

Danny and Jensen make a great, hot couple. Danny works for a struggling hotel chain while Jensen is trying to decide whether to save or destroy it. They have a hot night together before either knows who the other is but once they do, they have a hard time staying apart from each other. Can they enjoy great sex with no strings or are they already in too deep?

This is a really fun story. The sex scenes are great and I found myself rooting for both of them and even for the hotel chain and its emplo

A while ago I was asked, “Whose books would you buy blindly?” That means with no blurbs, teasers, book covers, or genre. Without hesitation, I said LISA RENEE JONES of course! This woman’s talent for putting words to paper is beyond reproach. No matter the genre, storyline, or characters, Ms. Jones constantly impresses and leaves us wanting more. NEED YOU NOW is the beginning of yet another spectacular series from an incredibly talented author. Book 1 of the Shattered Promises Series is sure to ...more

I received an ARC of Need You Now in exchange for an honest review and I must say, Lisa Renee Jones has written another captivating and intriguing story with a twist.

Wow, this is awesome short story, and I fell in love with Jensen at the very end when he said that he couldn't stay away. I am so happy that it ended that way. I may have been devastated if it didn't...Lisa sure know how to tell a story, that is why I love all of her books so much...
