I was excited to start this one because the cover looked so adorable and the synopsis sounded cute, I did like it but it didn't live up to my exceptions.
Told in alternating POV's between Skye and Seth. 
Skye and Seth meet one summer at a beach party and instantly fall head over heels in love. They part ways after spending just two days together and can't seem to get each other out of their heads for the next few years.
 When they bump into each other things resume as if they didn't go anywhere. 
The characters were a little bit flat. Skye was whiny and annoying.
It was boring in some parts, maybe not boring but slow, it came to a standstill in the middle of the book. Along with the break, a three year time break, that made things a little confusing.
This was the second Susane Colasanti book I have read, the first being Keep Holding On, and while they were very different stories, I could definitely tell they were from the same author. 
I think All I Need is a quick, fun, sweet summer read. Perfect beach read that's for sure! 
Thank Penguin and NetGalley for this e-arc in exchange for an honest review.

    This book falls right in the middle of what I like and what I do

    This book falls right in the middle of what I like and what I don't. On the one hand, it is super sweet and focuses on real love and developing lasting relationships. In the other hand, there is a lot of sex talk and high school drama.

    I like the way the relationship between the characters develops. They know they have something real and they take things pretty slow. They give themselves time to get to know each other before getting too serious. Both characters are likable, which is a must with a romance heavy story.

    Although I prefer sex free books, I appreciate the way the author focuses on true love. It is not some lusty novel that will make you blush. The sex is non-descriptive and they wait until after she is an adult. I also like how at that point, it is more of an expression of their love for each other rather than a need to fill their own desires. I feel like there is so much pressure on teens to get involved intimately with their boyfriend or girlfriend and it is refreshing to see a book that focuses on developing a good relationship before getting so serious. There is quite a bit of sex talk from Skye and her friends, but again, the author used it to explain that intimacy complicates things, rather than fixes them.

    The writing was simple, and you could easily read the book in one sitting. This book is sugary sweet and super fluffy. It is full of declarations of undying love. It's a cute story that would be great for an afternoon at the beach.

    Content: Non-descriptive sex, innuendo

    Cover: This cover is super cute and it reflects the book well. It's what initially drew me to the book and it almost makes me want to read it again!

    All I Need was a story that I liked, not loved. It was kind of a double ended sword situation, because I loved that the romance and lives of these characters stuck to how it is in the real world, but at the same time when you read about real world romance it's not a fantasy relationship. There are bumps in the road which made the book a bit of a downer. I did love that it was in both Seth and Skye's point of view, because it made the story richer, and I love that we learned about other things going on in their lives, like friends and parents, besides the romance, because again it made it all more believable as if you were just reading someones real life story. I recommend this book for contemporary readers, and definitely to those who like a dose of reality every now and then.
