“I know what flips your switch, Jamie. And I’m gonna trip it over and over again. I’m gonna make you forget your own goddamn name.”

The Hierarchy of Needs

The Hierarchy of Needs

She’s sure they’re just friends. He’s sure he’ll taint her world for good.

Jamie Matthews is stuck in a rut, both with her dream career, and with Dean Trescott, the playboy friend she had one hot-as-hell night with back in high school.

Dean has wanted Jamie since the day they met. But she has a bright future ahead of her, and he won’t chain her to his—helping run the family business that’s barely staying afloat.

Giving into their attraction could end in another rejection, and Jamie has had enough of that, thank you very much. But they can’t get their craving for each other out of their systems. Will a weekend away destroy their friendship forever? Or could it be exactly what they need…

If you want a second chance romance with SIZZLING HOT CHEMISTRY, a sweet storyline, and characters you’ll fall for, grab The Hierarchy of Needs now!

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.


With sizzling hot chemistry, a sweet storyline, and characters that you’ll fall for, The Hierarchy of Needs by Rebecca Grace Allen is a fast, fun read.
