All I Want Is You by Candace Havens

Hawke Vance will do whatever it takes to protect the family business, even if it means protecting it from his own father, a man who’s just gotten hitched in Vegas to wife number nine. Growing up seeing how much chaos wedded bliss creates, Hawke’s sworn never to fall into the matrimony trap. But to get the all-important controlling shares of the company, he does need a wife.

Being caught skinny dipping is not the way ballerina Amy Powell planned to start her vacation. When the hot biker who catches her turns out to be the owner of the house she’s staying in, she’s mortified. But embarrassment soon turns to confusion and a good dose of lust when Mr. Sex on a Stick offers her the money she needs to save her brother if she’ll agree to marry him and play pretend for two months.

Only this game of make-believe quickly starts feeling too real…

All I Want is You By: Candace Havens ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️.5 Star Review by Kristie K A fun and flirty fake marriage romance, with a hot biker, a prima ballerina, and a whole lot of unexpected assumptions… This book captured my attention from the synopsis…and the crazy sexy cover! A ballerina caught skinny dipping by a hot as Hades biker?! My kind of literary gold right there! Let me elaborate a bit. Amy Powell is a prima ballerina on hiatus from her tour due to an injury, and is lucky enough to have a place to stay thanks to arrangements her mother was able to make. Staying in a gorgeous home, that she seems to have all to herself, Amy makes herself comfortable. One day, while taking an impromptu dip in the pool…naked…Amy receives an unexpected visit from arguably one of the hottest men she’s ever laid eyes on. As if that awkward moment isn’t enough, she comes to find out he’s the owner of the house…and he wasn’t fully aware she was the guest he was told would be staying there. What an introduction! Hawke Vance is the hot as Hades biker, and homeowner, that stumbles upon the very naked Amy as she swims in his pool. With his father’s constantly changing love life, Hawke is somewhat accustomed to unexpected surprises. Before stumbling upon his new houseguest, Hawke was trying to work out a way to protect the family business from his father’s most recent walk down the aisle. His only viable solution? A trip down the aisle himself… Could it be that his new houseguest is the answer to his prayers? Tension reaches an all time high when Hawke makes an “indecent proposal” all his own… This is the first book I have read by Candace Havens, and I thoroughly enjoyed the experience! From the sexy cover to the attention grabbing blurb, Ms. Havens had me at hello! Even in a genre as popular and “done” as this one, Ms. Havens has managed to bring a fresh spin to the plot and storyline that give it just the right amount of different. The characters were amazing. Each one had their own personality, heart, soul, and mind. Amy was such a sweet soul. So much goodness inside her it couldn’t help but touch those around her. In addition to that, though, she was strong…so very strong. Her wit and humor highlighted her beautiful heart, and her forgiveness divine. Hawke was so frustratingly male! (I mean that in the best possible way!) Stubborn, determined, and driven, this beautiful man could be his own worst enemy. A beautiful heart and soul beat beneath that hard exterior, and his sense of family is by far one of the most amazing things about him. I truly enjoyed every moment of this book, it’s story, and it’s characters. This will not be the last I see of Candace Havens. Kristie K

First time reading this author. Was a great read! There were only 126 pages, but you quickly forgot that with the depth this story was written in. Lots of heat and great characters. This story captivates you from beginning to end & it's hard to step away from.

Marriage of InstaLove This was a good and quick romance read for me. It’s a romance of convenience type storyline which has some moments of hot chemistry between the Main Characters and some awesome humor and witty banter between them. Hawke and Amy are mismatched couple- Take a millionaire biker and one innocent yet sassy ballerina who end up being step siblings. A marriage of convenience ensues between them. Reasons are: Hawke needs a wife in order to get the shares of the family company & Amy needs money to help her brother so Hawke meets Amy at his father’s wedding to Amy’s mother (note : Amy's mom is wife number 9 ) Hawke needs marriage to get the shares so he can run the business . I normally love marriage of convenience love stories but at times Hawke came off like this super jerk. That was at times too much. He needed to learn to ask more questions or just go with trust. I adored Amy. She was sweet and sassy. She had this heart of gold. She took but when she got tired of taking Hawke’s verbal jabs, look out. I would have loved to see Hawke have his come to Jesus moment a lot sooner than the end so that way he and Amy could have more time learning about each other and have more romance but that’s me. I did like Hawke’s alpha ways and his caveman behavior. There was some taboo moments which took this rating from a 3.5 up to a 4 stars in my book and I will definitely give this author another look for future reads. My rating: 4.0 stars **** "I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book in exchange for an honest review***

4+ “Walking in biker hunk Heaven” Stars Lately, I’m getting super lucky with my choice in hot biker dude heroes. In All I Want Is You, we get hunky Hawk falling head over heels for a tiny ballet dancer who rocks his world. Hawk’s dad has been married more times that he can remember. After seeing one woman after another going for his family’s money, he’s not only sworn to protect his gazillion’s of siblings and step-siblings futures, but also to never marry. One more nuptial of his Dad’s send him into panic mode and the only way to gain majority control over the company is to have a nuptial of his own. Cue in the hot chick skinny dipping in his pool, who turns out to be his new step-sister –his really sexy, super-hot step-sister. Amy has not been having the best of luck lately. She hurt her ankle pretty bad, got caught naked in the pool by her mom’s new husband’s son and now her brother needs more money than she can come up with. When hottie Hawk offers her what she needs in exchange for marrying him and playing pretend for two months she is all in… and if she can get crazy hot monkey sex out of the deal, well who could blame her? The guy is drool-worthy. When the lines between pretend and real start to blur, both Hawk and Amy will have to get over their issues or their end will come much sooner than two months. I really loved both of them. Amy was one tough cookie, she had a steel backbone, she was funny and charming and I really felt for her when Hawk acted like a jerk. Hawk in kind was absolutely dreamy (except for the aforementioned jerkwad moments) he was sexy and bossy and really, really good with his hands. He was incredibly sweet and the way he took care of all of his family was wonderful. “For a hot motorcycle dude, you’re so romantic” With crazy hot shenanigans, fantastic banter, a bunch of siblings I want to know more about and really amazing chemistry I enjoyed the crap out of All I Want Is You. Now can we get the stories for all the other Vance’s, pretty please? *I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this book*

I really love the name Hawke and it totally suits the main man in this story perfectly. He watches over everyone and takes care of those important to him. I loved his fierce protection that he genuinely and without hesitation gave to his family. He was smoking hot and completely control freak alpha male - major swooning! And then there is Amy. I completely enjoyed every facet of her personality. She was strong and the words that would fly out of her mouth was priceless. She definitely kept Hawke entertained and on his toes. Her interactions with Hawke and his family were hilarious. She fit right in. And I love that she took him to town when it really counted. But when he made up for it, hold onto your heartstrings. Definitely a great and entertaining read that flowed so smoothly. I received this book in exchange for an honest review from the publisher through Netgalley.

hawke vance and amy powell know about step-siblings. between the two of them their parents have so many marriages you need more than two hands to count them all. when hawke comes across amy skinny-dipping at the family compound, he's horrified to realize that she's his latest stepsister. especially since there is nothing brotherly about his reaction to her. amy only took her new stepfather up on his offer to stay at the family home because 1) he assured her it was empty and 2) the physical therapist who could help her rehabilitate her knee injury was based in the area. when she meets her new stepbrother, she is aghast to discover that he thinks she is an opportunist. she would leave except she has another stepbrother who needs her help. when hawke realizes she needs $50,000 in cash he offers to help out out, in exchange he needs her to marry him. he doesn't explain that the marriage will give him control over the family business, something his father has continued to endanger with each of his many marriages. given his track record he's not too keen on risking his and his siblings' livelihood on this latest marriage working out. all i want is you is a novella, and the short format doesn't really do the story any favors. it would have been nice to see amy and hawke's relationship more fully realized, it would have also been better to see more of their relationship with their respective parents and their families. because everything has to happen so quickly i felt like we missed out on some real opportunities to show us how amy and hawke felt about one another than just having the author tell us that they were so in love and so confused by misunderstanding and miscommunication. but i'm always game for a fake relationship turns into real feelings story, so even though all i want is you isn't perfect, it still hits my sweet spot for romance tropes. and really i think my biggest quibbles with the story would have been avoided had this been a full-length novel, rather than a novella. **all i want is you will publish on april 17, 2017. i received an advance reader copy courtesy of netgalley/entangled publishing (brazen) in exchange for my honest review.

Like the summer heat in Texas this is one sexy and fun read. Hawke is the oldest son who's watched his father marry woman after woman, and from his standpoint only after his money. Determined to preserve the business his father built and he now runs after his father marries wife number 5 or 6... the God's smile down on him and his plan to take over the business is set in motion by his latest step sibling Amy. Returning home, Hawke finds Amy swimming naked in the pool, she's a ballerina who is recuperating from a two fold injury and has come to Austin to get the best physical therapy she can. Operating under the assumption no one would be there, she's skinny dipping. When Hawke arrives home and sees this trespasser he verbally accosts her and is a total a@@ to her. He calms when he sees her injury but he's still angry at his father for remarrying yet again and is still concocting a scheme to take over the business. Amy, not feeling welcome after his unholy reception, tells him she'll leave. He then overhears her on the phone talking to someone who needs money and by golly he's got his plan. His mother's will states he has to marry and stay married for 24 months to inherit her shares of the business. Mind you he's not doing this out of greed, he's doing it to protect the family assets and finish putting his other step siblings through college. These two might be like oil and water. Amy gives as good as she gets, but the chemistry here is smoking hot. Candace really steamed this story up. After some consideration, they marry and no one knows it's a business deal as Hawke puts it. But the feelings develop and well...... Hawke is hot, a little gruff but the man has a sweet spot for his ballerina. Amy is just awesome, on her own since she was 14 she takes no crap from anyone, especially him. She's a scraper. I loved her. The story flows along nicely until the bottom drops out and well damn.... I thought what just happened? What kind of fool??? Read the book. It's a keeper. Great story Candace, it was perfect!! 4.5 stars **arc from NetGalley and Entangled in exchange for a fair review**

All I Want Is You by Candace Havens is a quick but complete read as well as sweet and sexy. This was my first time reading this author and I enjoyed it. All I Want is You has a very nice start and good pace, however about halfway through the story things became rushed and hurried, and this continued through to the end of the book. Ms. Havens did a wonderful job of putting together a solid storyline, defined world and great characters that engage you and suck you into the story. Had the story continued forward with the same momentum as it started and not become rushed then this would have been a hands down 5* read. Definitely a story worth reading because honestly 4 stars is still pretty damn snazzy :p Please note that an ARC was generously provided in exchange for an honest review of which this is both honest and completely voluntary.

I really enjoyed this one! Loved the first meeting of Hawke and Amy. He's a rough Harley riding guy and she's a rehabbing ballerina and they truly are opposites but the one thing they have in common is their parents seem to fall in and out of love with ease. To protect and get controlling interest in the family business Hawke needs a wife. Meeting Amy has him coming up with a plan that could benefit both of them. This is a light, sexy, quick read that will keep you completely entertained. Nothing to deep but definitely enjoyable. Recommended read.

This is a quick, light and sexy read. Hawke and Amy are a mismatched pair who find common ground and an instant attraction to each other. A marriage of convenience ensues, Amy needing money to help her brother (at first, we aren't sure if he's involved in something shady but it all gets explained in the end) and Hawke needs a wife in order to get the shares of the family company left to him when his mother died. His father's propensity to meet, marry and divorce women only after his money means that the family business is constantly in danger of being sold out from under Hawke and his step-siblings and if he has controlling interest, he can make sure everyone is cared for. He's a big bear of a man, but quite the sweetheart and even though at first he tries to scare off the diminutive and perky Amy, she doesn't buy it. There are several steamy scenes, some misunderstandings that get cleared up pretty quickly and a sweet happy ending. No deep POV, no angst, just a fun sexy story. 3.5 stars.

Loved this book! This is a fast read that tells the sexy tale of Hawke, who owns (mostly) a string of motorcycle shops that are threatened by his father's marriage. He encounters Amy, a lovely but injured ballerina, skinny dipping in his pool. Amy needs a place to stay while she heals and her newest step-dad offers up his house, but never tells her that Hawke actually owns it. What follows is a yummy romance with plenty of sexy sparks. Turns out they'll both get something from a marriage of convenience, but neither gets what they're expecting. This is a sassy and sexy book that I just loved. Fans of the genre will want to snag this one and put it at the top of their list. It's the first book I've read by this author, but it won't be the last - I'm adding her to my must read authors' list.
