Overview

All You Need (Need You Series #3) by Lorelei James

A pro hockey player and a PR powerhouse burn up the ice in the third sexy Need You novel from the New York Times bestselling author of the Mastered Series and the Blacktop Cowboys® Series.
 
PR agent Annika Lund can spin any disaster into a win. But revamping the reputation of a notorious Swedish hockey player will take every trick in her arsenal, especially when his agent insists that convincing everyone he’s no longer a playboy is top priority. And that it requires a sham relationship—with Annika playing the part of the loving girlfriend.
 
On fire in the rink and in the bedroom, Axl Hammerquist couldn’t care less about being anyone’s golden boy. So when his agent forces him to play nice with a new publicist, he takes satisfaction in being as much of a pain as possible. But the more time he spends getting to know Annika, the more Axl starts to think that being Mr. Nice Guy might be worth it if it gets him the girl...

Loved it!!! Amazing addition to this awesome series! I hope Lorelei is going to write about each of the Lund kids and not just about the Ward & Selka kids!! I love this family and the way that Lorelei writes about the dynamics of the family. The interactions between them are funny, heart-warming and ernest. Cant wait to see what she does next!!!

Annika and Axl have a love, hate relationship. Her PR firm is hired to revamp his playboy image, but the hockey player enjoys one on one time with puck bunnies....will the two get past their differences to see what's right in front of them? My favorite book in the series....a must read!!!

I am totally swooning! I loved this so much. It was really entertaining to read but oh my goodness, getting to know these two characters and watching them fall in love was so sweet. And Axl? Omg! Thud! That man. Oh my! Axel and Annika had this perfect, bickering, animosity, verbal sparring thing happening that totally made me smile. Mixed in with that was this flirtiness and I was just so excited for them to get together. I love how all their details were learned over the course of the story, I thought there was great character development and an excellent build throughout. This was told from dual POVs, I loved their voices and getting inside their heads. Annika is such a strong woman and I love her fight in going after what she wants. It was so nice getting to see a softer side of her after reading the previous two books. Axl, I swear this man made me melt. He came across as such a jerk but the more you get to know him and he opens up, I was seriously done for. I just loved him so much. The two of them together had so many fun playful moments, I was smiling big time. The ease they have with each other and how things progress just made me happy. It was entertaining. In the beginning they had so much sexual tension and I was literally thinking, now! Do it now! Get together now! I was just so excited for them to connect. They had awesome chemistry... my belly literally flipped on several occasions thanks to these two. There is a nice amount of emotion mixed in as well as bits of drama. There were just so many scenes throughout where I would literally stop and and think, this is so fanatic. And that ending? Holy wow talk about romantic! Again with me swooning for Axl. Throw in all these great secondary characters and I was loving it even more. The Lund family, the cousins and brothers, Axl's friends and teammates. I felt they all really added something to the story. There were a few updates for previous couples and some things hinted on with others and I'm excited to see how it will play out in the series. It was all so great. Storyline, development, build, pace. Characters. The sexy times. It was all awesome. I love story's like this that are filled with humor but are also sweet and sexy with really great characters. They leave me feeling so happy and content. This was definitely a winner!

This review was written by Marie for a guest review post on Ever After Book Reviews blog: I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE Lorelei James! She’s one of my absolute favorite authors, and she doesn’t disappoint with All You Need. Annika and Axl are a perfect match for one another. They have amazing chemistry, they’re both extremely hard-headed, and they both have a desire for one another that eventually leads them to give in to their inevitable romance. Ms. James does a masterful job of writing this story, unfolding a cute, sexy and sweet romance set to a hockey player theme. *cue the swooning* She makes it easy to fall in love with the bad boy, Axl, and to cheer on the alpha female in Annika. I just can’t get enough of these books! This book works as a standalone, but I would highly recommend reading the first books of the series, simply because they’re so well written. ***I voluntarily read a copy of the book in exchange for an honest review. All thoughts and feelings are my own***

If I had wanted to read a G-rated book then I would have bought a Kristan Higgins or an YA novel.

James scores again with her third entry in the Need You series. The sex level is higher here than in the other two books in the series, but the relationship is delightful and hearty. Although it is not necessary to read books one and two before reading ALL YOU NEED, it would be a welcome treat. There is a modicum of information about hockey. It’s not a sports book. The Lund conglomerate is a multi-billion dollar institution where all positions of power are held by family members. Although a member of that illustrious group, Annika Lund is one of the top publicity representatives in the States. Her reputation is known in other countries as well. Her agent has the cockamamie idea to turn Swedish hockey player Axl Hammerquist into her ideal boyfriend. His image is not the best, so his agent, who also represents Annika, wants to boost that image. She is the golden girl of the Lund family having achieved her status on her own. Playing girlfriend to Axl is not her idea of a good time. He’s not keen on the idea either. Until they get up close and personal, that is. After they become involved with each other physically and emotionally, everyone else gets entangled in their affairs. A big blowup causes everyone to make major errors and the publicity is decimating. The couple just wants to be left alone. Axl fears it will destroy the peace of hockey and his relationship with Annika.

Annika and Axl are a feisty couple you'll fall in love with. Their whole relationship begins as a farce and you'll determine you despise Axl. But don't stop there, they are only getting started. As with all great couples they have a few bumps in the road to their happy-ever-after. After all a tough hockey player who gives up the keys to his heart and his favorite ride to the woman he loves is definitely worth a few icy patches along the way. So sit back, relax, and enjoy the ride.

Awesome! All You Need is the third book in The Need You Series and by far my favorite. Annika and Axl’s story is a hysterical example of how 1st impressions and stereotypes aren’t always the true character of a person. Take a fake PR relationship, add Annika’s quick-wit and sharp tough, mix with Axl’s sweet thoughtful side and you have a recipe for an entertaining, happily ever-after romance. You also get to see more of the Lund family. The introduction of an ex family member that gives a different side to what the family has been lead to believe. Updates from other couples in the family. Plus, hints at upcoming story possibilities. Just my opinion but these little extras make for a well rounded series that sucks you in. Making you feel like part of the Lund family.

What kind of man can bring Annika "the ice princess" Lund to her knees? Well I didn't invision Axl Hammerquist. What starts out as an innocent PR stunt ends up changing everything. You need to read this book! This couple will melt your hearts.

When the Annika AKA the Iron Princess of Lund Industries meets NHL troublemaker Axl Hammerquist, she has plenty to say about his obnoxious party boy ways-none of it positive. Axl needs to clean up his reputation, and Annika is pulled in to pretend to be his girlfriend as a PR move. Everyone knows good girls love a bad boy right? As obnoxious as "The Hammer" is, Annika can't deny she's drawn to the handsome swede. As the 2 begin pretend dating the sparks fly. This "pretend couple" have very real chemistry. It becomes very clear there's more to the hockey player and he falls quickly for the softer vulnerable side of Annika. It becomes clear that there is much more to the hockey player as well as the complex Annika. I love the family dynamic of the Lund family and there is a lot of family fun in this story. Lots of interesting secondary characters and build up to the next installment in the series. I was really looking forward to Annika's story, and Ms James NEVER disappoints! Great fun read, and I can't wait for the next story!

All You Need is Book 3 of the Need You series by Lorelei James. I haven't had a chance to read the first 2 books yet so it's certainly not necessary to read them in order. I do plan however to remedy that in the very near future. This book was superb. I loved the connection between Axl and Annika and the chemistry between these two, oh my! I swear you could see the steam rolling off the pages. Ms. James also set the scene for future books involving the Lund family and I cannot wait. I thoroughly enjoyed this story and would definitely recommend it.

Atilla and Ax-hell are my new favorite characters…this book is hot, funny, witty, sexy, and well written. So very glad that the strong woman that Annika is didn’t get lost along the way. If you like a great story and humor with your romance this book is for you. It is still on my re-read list and I’ve read it three times already! An honest review from an ARC recipient.

Jag älskade det! LOVED All You Need! Annika and Axl are now my favorite characters in the “Need You” series. Lorelei James rolls angst, sexy and funny all together. She never fails to create a great story that pulls you in and I was sad when it came to an end because I was so invested in it. I honestly need a full-length epilogue for this one! Quite tempted to leave my SoCal life and move to Minnesota, become a winter sport athlete, or at least a hockey fan!

April 1, 2017 – Started Reading Review Annika Lund is in charge of the PR department at Lund Industries. She's known as an Ice Queen. Her mother is Swedish, so Annika also speaks it. Axl is a hockey player, also known as a playboy and continues to get in trouble. He's from Sweden (see where this is going?) and lets everyone think he speaks no English, so therefore, needs an interpreter. Because of his "playa" tendencies, he was traded from the Chicago Blackhawks to the Minnesota Wild. Annika's mom and her brother's agent team up together to get Axl on the right road to clean up his reputation. The best way to help him...she'll pretend to be his girlfriend. What neither counted on was the fireworks and major chemistry between them! Will this pretend relationship turn into a real one? I loved Annika and her names for Axl (pucktard was my favorite)! He's such a jerk, but I did fall in love with him! This was a long story and I glazed over at the hockey parts (I'm not a sports fan) but overall it was an enjoyable book!

I LOVE this series and the Lund family. "All You Need" is the 3rd book in the Need You series. I can't get enough of the series, each book follows a member of the Lund family as the find and conquer love. This book is about Annika Lund and Axl "The Hammer" Hammerquist, the sexy Swedish hockey player. I really enjoyed reading about these characters and learning about what makes them laugh and cry. This book is really well written and I cannot wait for the next book in the series.

5 Stars ***** I think Axl and Annika are my favorite so far. Both of them had amazing back stories that made them perfect for each other. While I love this entire series this book is just amazing! When Axl is having trouble staying in the media good gracious, Annika gets brought in to babysit but after pulling him out of the fire again, rumors get started that they are a couple. They decide that for right now they will not set the record straight but then, feelings start to come into play that are not faked… I highly suggest that you get started on this book now to enjoy this amazing ride! So many feel goods that I bet you go back and start at the beginning of the series! Well done Lorelei James!

Some authors fizzle as they write more books or expand from their original genre. This novel proves this is not the case with Lorelei James. This may be one of my all time favorite books of hers. Not since we were introduced to Keely in the Rough Rider series have I enjoyed a female character as much as I did Annika. Or her mama because Mama Lund steals the scene whenever she appears. If you're concerned about the turn from Western or Erotic genre, don't be. The heat is turned up on and off the ice with Annika and Axl. You'll love it, I promise!

Can I just say OMG!! I literally could not put this story down! Annika and Axl have the chemistry and more to burn a place down. There were Sparks from the start. If you want a story that pulls you in and doesn't let go, get this story now!!!

When the story begins with the hero being called Ax-Hole and the heroine being called Attila, you know there are going to be fireworks!!! And if you’ve read the previous books in the series, you know there’s going to be steam!!! Lorelei did not disappoint! Axl is just a guy trying to do his job. Annika is just a girl trying to prove herself to her family. But they need each other for either of them to succeed. There’s the setup!! Throw in an interfering agent,a crazy mom, several protective brothers, a little bit of a translation issue and an apartment building full of nosy neighbors and you have the love story of Axl and Annika. I loved this book! This is not your typical love story or sports story but it’s a great combination of them. You aren’t overwhelmed with sports details and it isn’t all about sweetness. Axl has his issues with trust and Annika has some as well so they both have to be willing to make some uncomfortable adjustments. I especially enjoyed the banter between the brothers who we met in the earlier books. It’s funny to know where they were and see how they’ve changed with their relationships. I can’t wait to read Jensen’s story next, maybe????

After a slow beginning for me....I couldn't get into the story line at first.. I was locked in when Annika and Axl finally gave up their "Let's pretend" games. At first, I found it hard to believe that a strong businesswoman such as Annika would be used as a puppet for any man or any business deal - least of all a professional sports athlete. But once they gave up and admitted they were really interested in each other I was hooked. I enjoyed their banter and it was nice seeing them interact without the pressure of the press, the public, and family. I am a die-hard Lorelei James fan and her Need You series has been a great showcase of her ability to showcase characters. I love her use of family dynamics especially. Can't wait til the next installment!

All You Need is book #3 in the Need You series and it was another amazing book in the series. Annika Lund is a PR agent that can spin any disaster into a win but it seems that revamping the reputation of a notorious Swedish hockey player, Axl Hammerquist will take every trick in her arsenal and the fact that she finds him very attractive and at the same time think he's a playboy will only make it harder for her to do her job. When Axl's agent tells him and Annika that they need to pretant to be dating in order to improve Axl public image things heat up and soon what started as a fake relationship becomes real. I have to say that I wasn't sure how much I'll love Axl as a hero after reading about him in book #2 in the series but I should have knowen that Lorelei James will make me full in love with him and make me understand why he acted they way he did when he first met Annika. I really enjoyed reading about Annika and Axl, I loved the fact that Annika was willing to give Axl a second chance and she wanted him to trust her and open up about his past. Lorelei James has a way of writing characters with depth and makes it easy for her readers to be invested in the story. Axl was a great hero, he's an Alpha male without being a jerk and Annika is a strong woman that isn't afraid to speak her mind and be honest in her personal life and at work . I loved the fact there wasn't unnecessary drama between Axl and Annika. All You Need was a great book, full of emotions, suer sexy and a great love story between Axl and Annika. I can't wait to read book #4 in the series!!
