Peek Inside Tell Me You Need Me

Chloe Franklin wouldn’t call herself a commitment-phobe, so much as she’s allergic to “long term.” She loves the sexy, sweaty and intensely hot hours of the night, though—especially when those nights are spent with Search-and-Rescuer Gage McGraw. Every time he steps foot in the sleepy town of Beaufort, he hooks up with Chloe. But he’s tired of hooks-ups. He wants more. Hot, bothered, and finally naked, Chloe’s ready for their night to start. But before he takes her, he whispers what his intentions really are...and then the games really begin.

Chloe Franklin wouldn’t call herself a commitment-phobe, so much as she’s allergic to anything long term. She loves the sexy, sweaty and intensely hot hours of the night that come before the sun rises, though. Especially when those nights are spent with Search-and-Rescuer Gage McGraw…

Gage loves his job, but there is one thing he’s starting to like more than the rush of a mission—a stacked blonde with a mouth that haunts his dreams. Every time he steps foot in the sleepy town of Beaufort, he hooks up with Chloe. But he’s tired of hooks-ups. He wants more.

Just the sight of Gage gets Chloe’s blood going. Hot, bothered, and finally naked, she’s ready for their night to start. But before he takes her, he whispers what his intentions really are…and then the games really begin.


"I really enjoyed reading this story, it was funny and romantic. The characters had a lot of personality and that kept me interested in the book. It is evident that the characters have a past that they haven't worked out, but as the two start to get to know each other they help one another move on. The writing was great and the story had a good flow that was easy and enjoyable to read. Overall if you are looking for a story about second chances, then I highly recommend reading this book it is worth the read. :)"- Jackie's Book World

3.5 - Time for the sex. Not the reality. Stars!

I am a fan Joya Ryan’s writing, Tell Me You Need Me falls somewhere in the middle of the spectrum if we were listing my favorites.

I am not going to lie and say that there is anything new and unusual about the story-line, but Chloe and Gage were a likeab ...more

3.75 "indecision is a bitch" stars

Hmmm, interestingly enough, i actually liked this, semi-long story, about two people desiring the same thing yet wanting the opposite on the long run, then realizing that there can't be one without the other and that they can work.

Gage McGraw is a lead member of the ...more

Over the past twelve months or so, I have become a fan of Joya Ryan’s writing. And, whilst fairly predictable, Tell Me You Need Me continues her trend of delivering a quick, easy-read steamy romance with a likeable couple.


Having inherited her mother’s restaurant, Chloe is focused on making it a suc ...more

***Review can also be found at Jackie's Book World. :)***

Tell Me You Need Me is a playful romantic story that is full of steamy scenes and is also about second chances at love.

Right at the very beginning of the book we get introduced to Search-and-Rescuer, Gage McGraw, who has come to Beaufort to ta ...more

Tell Me You Need Me is the first book in Joya Ryan's new Search and Rescue series. This book can very obviously be read as a standalone, and I'm going to bet the others in the series can as well. It told from a third person POV between the hero and heroine. There is an HEA, and no cliffhanger!

See more of my reviews on my blog Thoughts At One In The Morning.

My Thoughts:

I've read two of Joya Ryan's books, Chasing Mr. Wrong and Rules of Seduction, both Entangled Brazen books, and I adored them both so much. It's reached the point where I want to read every last one of her books all at once. ...more

By Caro November 16, 2015

I really enjoyed this one.

We have Gage and Chloe, two people who hook up whenever Gage is in town for a weekend. That works perfectly ok for both of them… until Gage wants more. Then it’s about trying to convince Chloe to get on board with the plan. And that proves to be tricky, lol.

I actually liked ...more

Friends with benefits. You know the deal, you know how things work.
Sex, no strings.
Lust minus the love.

Until one of them wants more. How do you take a friends with benefits relationship and build it into something more? Especially one of them sees commitment like a lovers plague.

Chloe and Gage are ...more

I have always been a Joya Ryan Fan. The book caught my interest immediately. I was caught off guard by the opening scene and spent the rest of the book catching my breath.

This book was so great! I totally loved Chloe and Gage! These two characters have serious chemistry, evident from the very first page of the novel, where they’re playing a little game of cat and mouse that ends in the most seductive way possible.

First of all, I found Chloe to be the most refreshing ...more
