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 about 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 that 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.
Most of All You is a heartbreaking but incredibly uplifting story of finding love and forging ahead. Gabe & Ellie gave each other so many firsts in life and my eyes tear up thinking of those.
Chapter 23 simply shattered me, when we learn fully of Gambit, Racer, Shadow, Lemon Fair, Lady Eloise – talk about arrow straight through my heart. I could not breathe once I realised the full significance of these pieces of Gabe’s puzzle. As I remember this moment I have tears in my eyes.
Gabe and Ellie both tell us their stories which entwine amongst each others recovery to be open to love. Both had stories of their youth being taken from them and losing family.
The first 30% of this book is incredibly hard to read. It is depressing to watch Ellie and how she accepts her life. My favourite part of this whole journey was Gabe showing her she is capable and entitled to a better life.
“The man who’d loved me enough to wait for me to love myself”
The last 30% is my favourite, so much repair and new love and life. The way Ellie on her own starts to rebuild her life is amazing and gave me pure joy.
So many wonderful moments in this story where I would highlight paragraphs of beautiful words.
I wanted to scream, cry, yell, curse but then I laughed, held hope and ultimately fell in love with this dynamic couple.
Chloe at first I did not like, I was like a protective shield wanting Ellie to have it all. The turn of events for Chloe was surprising for me. Dominic who is Gabe’s brother well at the start I understood his reservations and I loved how his character grew over the story and how his shell also opened from his guilt.
The passionate and emotional scenes and slow build up for Gabe and Ellie was just perfect for me, it was believable.
Gabe and his sculpting, it was like we were watching not only him sculpt William, he was cracking away at not only his shell but Ellie’s too. Gabe and Ellie gave each other so many firsts in life and my eyes tear up thinking of those, it gives me joy and reminds me why I read romance books.
“I don’t create beauty, Eloise, I just reveal what’s already there”
