“Go to college,” they said. “Get a good job,” they said. “It will be a piece of cake.” Well, whoever they are, they lied. Sure, college was a blast, but after college, not so much. The finding a job to go with my expensive education, that part was not so easy. At least not until I was offered a position at the new club in town.

Life is defined by the little moments that ha

I loved this!! The hero is awesome, he is absolutely crazy for the h. The h is great. It's completely safe. And a sweet epilogue! Now I will say this has a OTT jealous hero but I loved it and thought it was funny. The only thing I didn't care for was the misunderstanding, talk things out people!! Other than that is was great. ...more

I'm going to start this review by saying I devoured I Just Want You in half a day.

I'm also going to say, I think this is Kaylee’s best book yet!

I also must say that I absolutely LOVED IT.

I Just Want You is a sexy, steamy romance full of sweetness and swoon.

One thing Kaylee nails in all of her books are her hero's. Kaylee writes ALPHA so, so well. Alphas that know what they want, go after it and don't care who knows. Alphas that make their claim from the start and see it through. Alphas that

3.5 Stars

There were parts of this I really liked and others that didn't totally work for me.

Berklee and Crew were young, and I knew that going into the story. But at times, they were a little too young and naive. It was great that he inherited money, but some of the time Crew was portrayed as he had no idea what he was doing, and others he was capable enough to handle overseeing the construction and opening of a club.

There were snippets where the

I had the privilege of BETA reading I Just Want You, and let me start by saying how SEXY Crew is! He's closed off, demanding, sexy, and Lord that dirty mouth of his. This book has a nice combination of sexy, swoon, and sweet. You can FEEL the passion, the drama, and the angst. I highly recommend this book! ...more

“Every minute of my forever I want you.”

A dominating, always in control, swoon worthy alpha-male meets a sweet, smart, and understanding woman that he never knew he needed.

One glance was all it took for these two to know they wanted each other, but can a boss/employee relationship work?

*fans self*

I Just Want You is by far Kaylee Ryan’s steamiest novel to date! The angsty slow burn between Crew and Berklee was additive and consuming! I simply could not put it down! Seriously, I only stopped for

I voluntarily read an advanced reader copy of this book.

Sighhhhh..... I NEVER get tired of reading a Kaylee Ryan book and this one obviously didn't disappoint.

Crew met Berklee when she worked at the coffee shop close to the club he was preparing to open. He thought she was the most gorgeous woman he's ever met and vice versa for her. Little did he know that his best friend who also happens to be Berklee's friend hired her to administrate the bar.

They fought very hard trying to stay professional

One of the very few books I DNF. I didn't even make it half way. The basic framework of the story was too hard for me to swallow to even care about the H/h.

Being a business woman myself and the Director of Admin for my family business, everything about this made me twitch. The idea of a guy, who knows nothing about opening or running a bar, hiring his friend to run security who knows nothing about security (and they talk often about having no idea about most things) and then hiring someone stra

This was another great read by Kaylee Ryan. A couple things that kept it from being 5 stars is that it was a bit slow in the beginning. There just wasn't much happening. The other is that I felt like Crew was constantly pouring his heart out to Berklee and while we as readers know she felt the same, she still always kept him at arms length and tried to keep distance between them. I just didn't really understand where it was coming from. I really liked Berklee but Crew made this story for me. He ...more

I'm going to start by saying that I devoured this book in only a few short hours. I've been a fan of Kaylee Ryan's for quite some time and this story blew beyond every expectation I had going into it. This amazingly sensational read is told in alternating POVs and I adored every moment of this story! The fact that we got the chance to see both sides of the story from both of the main characters was perhaps the best part of the whole book since yo

Rating: 4/5

This was a sweet, sexy romance with a healthy dose of steam that certainly had me hot under the collar. The storyline just flowed along effortlessly the author's style of writing was right up my street I prefer the books I read to be written where there's dual point of view nothing beats hearing a his and hers version of events.

Yet another book that I just couldn't put down! I absolutely love being a part of Kaylee Ryan's world. Her books always leave me with the right amount of angst with a whole lot of HEAs to help keep me giddy.

Crew and Berklee will have you fanning yourself. Their story is a little bit of taboo mixed with a whole lot of romance. So so good!

Another great one from Kaylee Ryan! I Just Want You was a consuming read. I started it one night after my kids went to bed and I didn’t put it down until I was finished. The story was 38 chapters long, plus an epilogue, but I found that the chapters were rather short so it’s still a quick read.

This workplace romance is hot! You can feel the fire burning between the main characters, Crew and Berklee, from the moment they meet. Crew is a hero that is sure to be added to many readers’ list of “book

Super ridiculous ... almost flounced at the 50% mark
I don't understand how this book has such great reviews. The first few chapters had me intrigued but after that I was left dumbfounded. I almost dumped it on the DNF shelf but since most of the book was dialogue between characters, I skimmed through till the end. I was hoping for something more substantial but it never happened.

I liked Berklee at first. But then I didn't. I couldn't stand Crew - the jealousy was over the top and unbelievable . I seriously wanted to slap him several times becaus

Crew just inherited a bit of money and decides to open a bar/club but having no idea what he's doing or how to run it he's decides he needs an administrator.

Berklee having recently graduated from college with a business degree finds herself in limbo looking for a job to no avail, currently working in a coffee shop she meets a man who sets her heart thumping.

Received ARC in exchange for honest review

If you have read any of Kaylee Ryan’s books you may see a patterned of familiarity with her male characters. Majority of her men are jealous, possessive, and domineering. Now I am not talking Christian Grey type of domineering, more just wants to make sure they wear the pants in the relationship kind of guy. Now, I will say not all her male characters are like that; however, Crew falls perfe

****3.5 ‘Boss Me Anytime’ STARS****

I can always count on Kaylee Ryan for something light-hearted, sexy, fun and flirty.  This tale of a somewhat taboo attraction, boss and employee, is all that but somehow didn’t leave the impression I anticipated.  Nevertheless, this was a swoony, sexy way to pass the afternoon leaving me with sweet, warm-fuzzies.

I Just Want You deserves all the stars in the galaxy! I was completely consumed. I started reading this novel at three in the morning…horrible mistake on my part…I could not put this book down! Chalk this up to another sleepless night. but it was well worth it!

Let me tell you a few reasons why I loved ‘I Just Want You’ so much.

I have no words to describe this book-It literally left me breathless and loving every word I had just read. I didn't want the book to end...this was such a fantastic story .Kaylee Ryan never disappoints me and she ALWAYS writes touching romance novels and " I Just Want You" is no different.

This is a story of a man who didn't expect to run into his destiny in a woman who became his everything. Crew Ledger came into an inheritance from a grandmother he didn't know and he decided it was time to op

Quick, easy to read, low drama story between a club owner and his newly hired manager.

I liked the storyline- and I loved the friends and family of both characters.

Crew was a hotheaded, jealous, possessive man- who was too quick to judge. Which was his down fall for a little bit of drama towards the end. Though- he possesses these qualities and shows them frequently through out the book.

And then there’s Berklee, with her a horrible plan she came up with, which was doomed to fail as well. It also
