ABOUT THE BOOK: Release Date April 4, 2017
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 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.
All You Need begins with Axl’s reputation in trouble.. Annika’s reputation in the PR world is legendary due to her Ice Queen veneer and lots of hard work. When Axl’s agent works a little magic behind the scenes with Annika’s mother, Annika is basically roped into helping revamp his star hockey player’s reputation. Annika finds herself disgusted with Axl’s behavior, but also finds herself intrigued, which is the last thing she wants. Axl is sure Annika is just a poor little rich girl but agrees, along with Annika, to work together. Once their mission, for lack of a better term, is underway, it doesn’t take either long to see that neither are what the other thought. What follows is a wonderfully written story that will have you turning the pages faster and faster until the very end.
I LOVE THIS SERIES. The characters are well written and leave you wanting more information about them. Annika is not your typical socialite. She’s compassionate, smart and very loyal to everyone she loves. She is also a very hard worker. Axl started out as a typical off-the-rails and out of control pro athlete. As I read his antics in the beginning, I thought there was no way that James could redeem him. Oh, was I wrong. His and Annika’s chemistry leaps off the page and pulls you right into the story. Yes, there are bumps along the way, misunderstandings and all the trappings of romance angst, but the support they have for each other and from the Lund family itself makes this one a tad different for me. Each and every one of them are very well written, and begging for their stories to be told. This is only the third book in the series, and you can read as a stand along, but I’d suggest going back and reading the first two as well. They are awesome as well. If you’re a romance fan, you will definitely NOT go wrong with this series. Well done, Lorelei James!!!! Very, very well done!

From Lorelei: “Why do I have a particular fondness for all things western? Well, I’m a fourth generation South Dakotan, living in the Black Hills, which is chock-full of interesting characters, including cowboys, Indians, ranchers, and bikers. The geographical diversity of the surrounding area showcases mountains, plains, and badlands. Living in and writing about rural settings gives me a unique perspective, especially since I’m not writing historical westerns. Through my fictional world, I can show the ideals and the cowboy way of life are still very much alive.”
