Jamie Matthews is stuck in a rut. After hitting a wall with her dream career, she’s back in her hometown, living a life as monotonous as swimming laps in the neighborhood pool.
Being surrounded by her perfect brothers is a painful reminder of her failure to launch. The last bonfire of the summer is an ideal way to let off steam, especially when she runs into Dean Trescott, the playboy friend she had one hot-as-hell night with back in high school.
Since the day Dean met Jamie, he’s loved her beauty, talent, and smile that lit up the whole damn block. But dating isn’t an option. She has a bright future ahead of her, and he refuses to chain her to his—helping run the family business that’s barely staying afloat.
A “what-happens-in-Vegas” weekend was supposed to get their craving for each other out of their systems. But neither counted on the past repeating itself, drawing them together in even hotter and dirtier ways and dangling the possibility they might both be able to get exactly what they need…
Warning: A friends-to-lovers twice over story that contains some hot ’n’ heavy kissing in the waves, hair pulling, and a man who knows how to use his hands. It may also feature a few practical jokes—only the fun kind, of course.
This was a nice quick read. I enjoyed Rebecca’s writing style. Hierarchy of Needs had a nice flow and didn’t seem rushed or predictable. The characters were developed really well. It is written in Jamie and Dean’s POV which I liked though I was caught a bit off guard when it switched to Dean’s. I had to read the first few lines of a couple chapters a couple times to figure out whose POV it was in.
Jamie feels out of place in a family full of doctors. She wanted to pursue Fashion but ended up going to college on a swimming scholarship. Now that she’s back home she is faced with trying to figure out what she wants to do with the rest of her life as well as her “friendship” with her best friend Dean. Dean is fighting inner battles. He doesn’t think he deserves true happiness so he always pushes the one person he cares about the most away. I really liked how Jamie and Dean interacted with one another, but most of all, I loved how they fought for one another in the end.
