Publication date: September 14th 2016
Genres: Contemporary, New Adult, Romance

Jonte Williamson has a dream: become Nashville’s next big star. Finding herself unexpectedly homeless hot off the plane wasn’t part of her grand plan.

Cash Bellini is a simple man: he loves his twin sister, Dolly, hates country music, and stays far away from anything more complicated than that.

When Jonte stumbles into Cash’s bar, helping out the homeless country music wannabe is the last thing on his agenda. Pity someone forgot to send the memo to his too-big heart and meddling twin. Throw in a pair of baby blue cowboy boots, a pool table and a splash of tequila, and these two are set to ignite in a hot sexy mess! Will either of their hearts survive the tug-o-war between what they want and what they need?

Goodreads / Amazon

Something I Need is a brilliant debut novel from Lena Lowe. There was so much to like about this book. Jonte leaves her home in Australia to move to Nashville to pursue a country music career. There she meets Cash who hates country music but is very interested in Jonte. Not only were these main characters great but the secondary characters were brilliant as well.
The thing I loved the most is that unlike most romance novels, where boy meets girl, they fall in love, something happens and a big romantic gesture gets them a hea, this book had more of a “are they gonna get a hea” feel to it. Jonte makes Cash really work for it. To be honest, I like that a whole better since it takes out some of the predictability.
Overall, I can’t wait to see what Ms. Lowe has in store for the rest of this series.
Rating: 4 stars
