Needing Him by Kennedy Fox Review



Introducing book 2 in the Bishop Brothers series! A steamy new southern romance series by USA Today Bestselling author duo, Kennedy Fox!

Evan Bishop is your typical hotshot doctor.
Hardass, brooding, and all business.

Instead of working on the family ranch, Evan broke the mold and became an ER doctor.
He’s good with his hands—in more ways than one—smart as a whip and is the definition of God’s gift to women. Being a gentleman is in his Southern roots, but that doesn’t mean he isn’t flawed. Exclusive dating has never been a top priority and his tragic past makes him stay at arm’s length. Deciding to let loose for a wild night, he takes a page from the Bishop brother’s relationship book and hooks up with a mysterious girl he’ll never have to see again, which is perfect for this self-proclaimed bachelor.

Emily Bell is a city girl through and through but is determined to get away from her family and past. All she wants is a fresh start and to make a name for herself in the medical field. No random hookups and no dating coworkers—that’s her new motto after being burned time and again. When she agrees to attend a wedding as a plus-one, she’s soon ditched and left to drink solo—but not for long. Mr. Suit is the ultimate temptation with his Southern charm, messy blond hair, and irresistible sex appeal. Everything about him screams bad news, but he makes her reconsider her rules just for one night.

After all, some rules are made to be broken.

They want the same thing—one night of passion then they’ll go their separate ways. No cuddling afterward. No next day phone calls. No awkward goodbyes. Too bad the universe has other plans—one that’ll be obvious when they report to work on Monday morning.

*A contemporary romance with a little Southern drama. This is book 2 in the Bishop Brothers series. Each book features a different brother and can be read as a complete standalone. HEA guaranteed!*
Not suitable for readers under 18 due to adult language and sexual content.


Evan and Emily are both after the same things in life. They love their jobs and want to focus on that: Evan doesn’t have time for a relationship and Emily is fed up with love after once again being burned. However neither can deny an immediate attraction at a wedding and decide to have one hot and sexy night together….harmless right? That’s what they think until they both report to work the following week!

“I don’t know what’s come over me, but my entire body buzzes with anticipation. This man has my blood rushing, and I don’t want it to stop anytime soon. My core throbs from his words—his promise.”

A hot, sizzling, fun and flirty romance with chemistry that leaped off the pages. Laughter and drama also come together in this story to make this just a great all round romance read, perfect for the summer holidays.

“It’s a kiss filled with want and desire, and the heat shoots straight to my dick the moment she grabs my shirt and pulls my body against hers.”

I really liked both Evan and Emily. I liked how focused and determined they both were. Although Evan was a bit of an idiot initially he soon came around and from then on you couldn’t help but like him. Although he loved his job and family he was a bit closed off to begin with but we soon see his caring and loving side and he ended up being so sweet. From the start I liked how strong Emily was; she wasn’t going to take being walked over or made a fool of. She knew what she was worth. She was also kind, caring and the perfect, feisty match for Evan!

“There’s something about her that drives me wild and makes me walk toward her to give her exactly what she’s asking for. “I want more than one night with you, Emily,” I tell her, brushing my lips against hers. “For the first time in a long time I want… more.”

So yes this was a seriously hot read and you won’t be able to take your eyes off the pages when you are reading the sexy scenes between Emily and Evan. But it was also laugh out loud funny, so much banter between all the characters that it just left me in a happy and great mood; exactly what I was looking for when I dived into this story. It’s not all plain sailing and this is some tension and drama which just added another element to an already good read!
