Overview

Some people will do anything for true love -- even if they have to fake it.

Jen Maitland had no use for handsome guys with easy charm -- until she met Zach. He's the perfect fake date to end her mother's matchmaking scheme before it starts. Besides, he'd probably just use her and leave her like her ex-fiancé did. At least that's what Jen tells herself. The only problem is that Zach isn't as predictable as he appears...

Zach Coxwell hates commitment, but loves a challenge. Like the pretty bar waitress who turned him down flat for a date -- only to invite him to her family's Thanksgiving dinner. Zach knows he can make Jen smile -- and he's betting that he can unravel her mysteries -- even if he has to do it over candied yams.

A tofu turkey, a sister who threatens to have Zach's love-child, the untimely appearance of a knitted avocado -- and Zach's discovery of her real motive -- combine to turn Thanksgiving dinner into Jen's worst nightmare. Zach, on the other hand, has the time of his life. And when he makes Jen smile, he finally finds a commitment he's willing to make...but persuading Jen to believe him will take everything he's got.

Great romance and story of personal growth. Very interesting and real characters complete with flaws. Liked the updates on family members featured in the other books in this series which complimented the main story line perfectly without overpowering it. Would love to see books about some of the new characters in this book, especially Jen's family.

All or Nothing is book four of the Coxwell series. It is Zach's story, the self described black sheep of the family. Every action was designed to get his father's attention which was always negative. Dad was a judge so Zach popped in and out of jail knowing one of his older brothers would be sent to rescue him. Until the last time and his brother visited him in jail to tell him he is on his own. Once he is out of jail he is just drifting. Enter Jen Maitland who has her own weird family issues. Wanting to help each other with their family problems they agree to "fake date". This book talks about the "big C" openly and well as one of Jen's issues is that she is two years post treatment for breast cancer. These stories have some overlap so it is a good idea to read them in order. The Father, the main driving force for the siblings, is a strong influence through out all the books however only the first book has the full picture of the rigid uncompromising man that effects the siblings lives and interactions with the everyone. The books are wonderful and can stand alone but much better when read in order. Copy gifted by publisher in exchange for an honest review.

I thought "All or Nothing" was a great book. The characters were interesting and fun to read about. I liked the way that Zach grew and learned how to be an adult and develop healthy relationships with family and also with Jen. Jen was interesting in the fact that she had to teach herself how to not be afraid to live after bad life experiences. The writing was great and the character growth and development was interesting.

Every time I read the next book in one of Ms. Cooke's series I find myself thinking, "This is even better than the last one!" This has never been more true than with All or Nothing, a story which deals with the difficult subject of the "big C" in a young woman. As a result of her life threatening and life altering experience Jen has a hard time planning more than a tiny bit ahead, never certain of her long term survival. This is illustrated charmingly by her knitting projects: first a cherry, then a strawberry, a half orange—two bananas were a stretch for her as she hated the possibility that she would die and leave the project unfinished. In a poorly thought out ploy to stop her well meaning mother from setting her up on dates, Jen invites a fake date to her crazy family's Thanksgiving dinner, certain that her freewheeling carefree family will hate the trust fund man she brought home. When the unwitting patsy to her scheme, Zach Coxwell, overhears her plan, he decides to not only go along with her crazy idea, but to expand on it to the point where they are planning a fake Valentine's Day wedding. Along the way Zach, the self proclaimed Black Sheep of his family who comes with his own emotional baggage (and a large dog), makes Jen want to take the chance to fully live again. This can certainly be read as a standalone, but trust me, you will want to read all 4 of the Coxwell books. Each is better than the other! And we get a chance in this story to catch up with all the other family members who we met and fell in love with in the previous books. Copy gifted by the Publisher in exchange for an honest review.

When we landed on a fire island. Twilight kept kissing Blazin until she ran out of breath. I saw a manticore coming. I got out my sword. BlueSpark got out his nunchucks. The others got ready for battle. I ran as the speed of light to use my sword in the manticore's neck. BlueSpark kept whacking the manticore until it fell asleep. When the manticore woke up it took Twilight. Blazin save me. Twilight! Blazin ran until he made a sonic boom. Blazin got his sword out. Somehow Blazin's sword was gold. Sweet Death started turning gold. The others started to turn gold. I looked like a golden knight. We summon the power of the golden rule. TEAMWORK! Everybody started shooting the manticore with golden orbs. I waited and waited. Then I used a golden slash to defeat the manticore. Twilight started falling down. I flew to save her. Then Twilight opened the golden mask and kissing Blazin again. My hero.
