Need You Now

Need You Now by Mika Jolie

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?**

Lily and Adam had sparks from the beginning. Now it wasn't good sparks from the outside looking in but sparks none the less.  Lily is in a quasi relationship with Adam now. While they're arrangement is on going the only people they see is each other. They're not boyfriend and girlfriend but friends with benefits. When antibiotics lessen her birth control and a pregnancy enters the equation, Lily realizes that she can't continue to just be his sex buddy.

Adam doesn't do relationships because of his past. He just doesn't want to mess someone up with all of the issues from the past. Things people don't know that he doesn't share.  He is convinced he's no good for anyone. Liliana makes him happy but he can't be with her long term, then he finds out shes having his baby and he knows no matter what he wants that life with her. He'll be selfish and make a life with her even if he can't give her 100% of himself because he wants to be with her. Now I didn't say he loved her.. But could he?

I enjoyed getting to see a different side to Adam and to know more about Lily. They had a lot of ups and downs, a lot of passion makes it difficult to be on the same page all of the time. I did enjoy the fact that it wasn't just BAM they're in love and he's committed to Lily and all of the past doesn't matter. That's not real life and while I read fiction to escape I'd like it to be some what believable. I liked Lily and Adam. I loved seeing the others from the series and getting the set up for the next couple. Have you read this series? If you have what did you think of all that went on? What about Adam's secret? Let me know! Leave a review, its the best way to show an author you care!!
