Need You Now by Mika Jolie Review

Elementary school teacher Liliana Serrano has never been one to let others determine her future. Whether it’s her pack of three overly protective brothers or her Puerto-Rican, American heritage, she stands on her own. Which is exactly how she entered her arrangement with Adam Aquilani. The hot formula one driver is aloof, detached and not interested in relationship. After a cheating fiancĂ©, no strings attached sex was just what she needed.

Except one year later, they’re still hooking up and things aren’t so clear cut anymore. Especially when a surprise pregnancy enters the picture.

Adam is determined to marry Lily and raise their child as a family. But Lily refuses to settle for anything less than love.

As the two go on a journey of discovering, secrets are revealed, testing the strength of their connection. Can they learn not to give the past the power to define their future?

So after reading The Scale by Mika Jolie, I was eager to read another of her books. She recently released the second book in her Martha’s Way series called; Need You Now. I can honestly say it was a joy and a pleasure to read.
So we start the story with Lily; she was cheated on by her fiancĂ©, and now it would appear her “f**k buddy” has also been unfaithful. So after ignoring his calls and text messages, she was very surprised to see him asleep on her sofa.
Adam is not just any man, he is a F1 racing driver, who travels all over Europe, and even though this relationship was just supposed to be physical and casual, the thought of walking away from Lily has his stomach in knots.
But then something BIG happens that changes everything! Lily want’s to finish with Adam, but Adam wants to keep things as they are; until the truth comes out and his head is spinning…I am going to stop the story there, as I don’t want to spoil the story.
This story is truly amazing and I LOVED every second of it. I loved both Lily and Adam’s characters, but I truly loved Lily’s brother Rafa!
Mika’s writing simply flows off the page and at times it feels like all this is happening right in front of your eyes. I couldn’t find one plot hole. This book could be read as a stand-alone, but I think it would be much better if you read it in the series order.
Need You Now is such a fabulous book; you really need to read it. I give it 10 out of 10!
