From the New York Times bestselling author of Archer's Voice, Mia Sheridan delivers a heartwrenching new stand-alone contemporary romance.


A broken woman . . .

Crystal learned long ago that love brings only pain. Feeling nothing at all is far better than being hurt again. She guards her wounded heart behind a hard exterior and carries within her a deep mistrust of men, who, in her experience, have only ever used and taken.


A man in need of help . . .

Then Gabriel Dalton walks into her life. Despite the terrible darkness of his past, there's an undeniable goodness in him. And even though she knows the cost, Crystal finds herself drawn to Gabriel. His quiet strength is wearing down her defenses and his gentle patience is causing her to question everything she thought she knew.


Only love can mend a shattered heart . . .

Crystal and Gabriel never imagined that the world, which had stolen everything from them, would bring them a deep love like this. Except fate will only take them so far, and now the choice is theirs: Harden their hearts once again or find the courage to shed their painful pasts.

The first book I read by Mia Sheridan was Archer’s Voice, and I fell madly in love with it. I’ve read many of her books since then, always chasing the same rush I felt that first time. I found a close contender with Most of All You.

It’s a simply gorgeous story about a woman who is hardened by her painful past and a man who is incredibly hopeful despite his traumatic history.

Most of All You teaser

Ellie is not an easy character to love initially. She’s cold and sometimes cruel, but it’s clear that it’s a defense mechanism. It gives the character an opportunity for growth, and that transformation is highly enjoyable.

I admired Gabriel’s vulnerability and honesty while desperately trying to build a connection with Ellie. He could easily be one of those characters who drowns in his demons. Instead, his optimism and innate kindness warmed my heart. His gentle care and patience with Ellie stokes the slow burn between them quite nicely.

There’s a side plot that I found to be somewhat confusing and unnecessary, but it didn’t make their love affair any less enjoyable. I’m a sucker for stories where love can eclipse pain, and this uplifting romance offers just that.

Review & Excerpt ♥ Stud Finder by Lauren Blakely

Review & Excerpt ♥ Stud Finder by Lauren Blakely

If you follow my reviews, you know that I’ve read more than my fair share of mediocre novellas. Stud Finder proves that yes, Virginia, there are excellent ones out there. This is the second novella I’ve read and enjoyed by Lauren Blakely, and I think she should give a master class in the art of writing novellas. This book may be short, but it packs one heck of a lively punch.
