"It's just a job, how hard can it be?”

I was hired by his father to become his live-in caregiver. It sounded like an easy job. But the day I arrived at his broken-down Scottish castle I started to realize it might not be as easy as I thought.

I was not told that I'd be looking after a dark, brooding, rich man mired in a world of pain.
I was not told that this man would push all my buttons and test even my strongest limits.
I was not told that he was devastatingly gorgeous with a wickedly, sinful mouth.
I was definitely not told that what I'd end up feeling and what he would propose would drive me wild.

But I'm Annie and this is my new job. And damn it, I'm not going to let anything, even him, that gorgeous, sinful, delicious man, stand in my way.

You believe me? Don't you?

MY REVIEW

Everyone who's anyone knows that Callie Harper is a fave of mine. A trusted go-to author if you will. She writes fun, steamy and romantic contemporary books that have me fanning myself and swooning in equal measure. All I Need was filled with a bit more angst than what I've come to expect from her and I believe she did an awesome job with it. Yes! She can do something serious and dramatic!!

If you've read any of the books of the series (or not), you may (or not) know about the four young boys who took a boat out for a joyride when a storm hit and tragedy struck. One boy had a burning mast fall on top of him that not only burned him but also broke his back, leaving him paralyzed. Each boy was left traumatized by the accident, but Ian still bore the physical reminders. This is his story.

Annie was hired to be Ian's caretaker. Having isolated himself for the last 15 years, he's brooding, dark, morose, depressed, drunk, belligerent, rude, and in a lot of pain. Understandable. Annie slowly but surely draws him out and these two unknowingly serve as the driving force and motivation for the other. Through their relationship they found companionship, strength, understanding, compassion, and ultimately love.

The chemistry was electric. The plot was different but handled delicately, honestly and with respect. I felt Ian's pain and I cheered him on with his hard-won triumphs. And as always, those steamy scenes get a HUGE thumbs up from me!
