Review: The Hierarchy of Needs by Rebecca Grace Allen

The Hierarchy of Needs by Rebecca Grace Allen

Story Rating: 4


Once you figure out what you want, it’s impossible to ignore what you need.

Portland Rebels, Book 2

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.


I thoroughly enjoyed this short story. It is a light hearted romance with hot steamy sex and a happy ending which is one of my favorite formulas. The chemistry between Jamie and Dean is undeniable and no matter how hard they fight it their passion ignites every time they meet. To have that one lover who does it for you every time is a dream come true. But following their dreams seems to come hard for both of them. I like how everything is intertwined along with the solution to their situation. This is a story one can truly relate to.
