From New York Times bestselling author, J. Daniels.
Luke Evans is a heartbreaker. I didn’t want to give mine to him. Not when he kept me out. He gave me enough, just enough to make me fall in love with him. I say this to convince myself. But I know the truth. I would’ve fallen in love with him at a distance. Handing my heart over to Luke was the easiest thing I’ve ever done. I was naive when I wished for more, when I hoped he wanted the same things I did. I try to hate him. I try to forget him. But it’s not that easy. Love is a ruthless bitch, and I’m her latest victim.
Tessa Kelly is a man-eater. When she sets her sights on you, she doesn’t just consume your heart, she goes for your soul. What we had was perfect, real, and all I would ever want. But she destroyed it. She destroyed us. I try to hate her. I try to forget her. But it’s not that easy. Love is for people who have hope, and I have none.
Warning: this book contains adult themes. 18+. All I Want is a standalone novel, but to fully appreciate the f****ed-up mess that is Luke & Tessa, pick up Where I Belong first.
“It’s possible to hate someone, to look at them and wish you weren’t aware of their every move, and to want them more than you’ve ever wanted anything in your life.”
Man I love J Daniels! She brings on the sexy swoon like nobody else! I was eager to get to Tessa and Luke’s story after reading a couple of other books in the Alabama Summer series! I loved them in the other books and I loved them again in this one!
Tessa is one tough cookie! She is a girl who knows what she wants and goes after it no matter what. She is also a girl who speaks her mind and calls it like she sees it! I have a lot of respect for that! I absolutely loved her!
I know that the typical closed off male with a tortured past can be cliche, but J Daniels does it right and OH MAN did it work for Luke! He was sexy and brooding and I loved it!
The chemistry between these two was OFF THE CHARTS! They were trying to hide how they felt for each other and ignoring the pull between them and it led to some very intense and HOT moments that I loved!
“I know I love him. I feel it every day, even when I don’t want to. Even when he keeps me out. Even when he breaks my heart, it’s there, and it scares me.”
I loved joining in with this group of friends once again and they are quickly becoming one of my favorite gangs! I cannot wait to read the rest of the books in this series and get to know them all better!
Some things I love about Contemporary reads is that they are sexy, entertaining and give me just what I need in the moment! I like to switch back and forth between the fantasy and contemporary genres. J Daniels provides just what I need when I take the plunge back into contemporary! I am a fan for life!
“Because when you fall in love with someone exactly the way they are, how do you convince yourself they aren’t enough for you?”
