I'll give you a hint. It isn't what you think.

All I Ask is the story of second chances. Not at love, but at life. Devan's never had it easy, and Ian? He's been trying to get away from his past, but it's never far from him. So what happens when the Dark and the Light meet in the middle? Well I'm not saying, you'll have to read this epic romance to find out. With Characters you'll to Characters you'll hate, this book has it all. I absolutely LOVED every second of this book. If there was an option above 5 stars, Elizabeth York will get it every time.
I always get the chills when I start a new book and if that book is from a new author I can get a little nervous to. The thing that made get this chance was the blurb but sometimes that might not be enough because if I can't identify myself with the writing I might close the book and move on. But this wasn't the case at all. Elizabeth York is a new author to me and I'm so happy for this chance. She has a simple writing full of meaning and love. She managed to put her heart behind each word. All I Ask explores the lifes of Devan and Ian. Devan is a photographer that had a ruff start in life. Because she spent her childhood fighting to get better she is used to keep people away from her heart and doing so she can't suffer when they leave her. She's stubborn as hell but behind that facade hides someone who cares. She needs to prove herself in order to be successful in her career so... Ian is a Pediatric Oncologist that is used to see kids suffering but also seeing them win their battles. He's funny and his goal is to keep his patients happy to be able to forget their pains. Their paths will cross but what will happen? Can they change? Can they find what they are looking for? Beautiful, simply beautiful and intense. There is always a feeling of happiness and empathy when there are kids involved and this book had managed to capture me completely. The way the story progressed left me happy, sad and scared at the same time. The interaction between the characters were simply beautiful and the way they fight their battles left me speechless. I'm in love, I'm happy, I'm sad and I'm overwhelmed at the same time. And guess what? We have some pretty hot stuff into this mix. Thank you Elizabeth for this amazing story. Thank you for the chance to meet these amazing and wonderful characters, their lifes and struggles. And since I'm a greedy girl All I Ask is: What's next?
When I started this book, I was like WHY AM I READING THIS???? It has some rough content in it because it is about a child cancer survivor (as an adult) and a pediatrician oncologist. Devan had cancer as a child and ended up surviving. She basically lives her life like she is going to die at any moment. She does not let people in and is planning for her legacy. She ends up falling for the kids in the hospital and eventually Ian. I love that she was not taking no as answer from Ian to start her project. She is very tenacious and driven. Ian is a doctor and truly cares about the kids in his care. He basically lives at the hospital and goes home to sleep for a little bit, sometimes. He has given his whole life to helping the children and does not want Devan to use them for personal gain. As they get to know each other, Ian realizes that Devan is honest about her intentions and can give the kids things that he can't. I fell in love with several of the characters in this book. There is some mystery in this story and it was really surprising at the end. There were times when I hated both characters and wanted to slap each of them. There were some very funny parts too. I am giving this book 4.5 stars out of 5. Be prepared for some rough patches but the story is pretty good. Go get it!!
