Overview

There's no place like home, and no love like his...

Lilly Vasquez has returned home to Compass Cove after making her way in Hollywood as a hair stylist to the stars. With such a successful career, why she moved back to Long Island to open her own salon is a mystery, and Lilly's not talking. That is until a movie shoot nearby drops the trouble she thought she left in California right into her backyard.

FBI Special Agent Jack Miller has floated in and out of Compass Cove for the last fifteen years, rarely staying in town for more than a few days because he's so wrapped up in his work. But when a complaint about a potentially dangerous situation in town lands in his lap, Jack is gobsmacked to see the name of the woman who has occupied his thoughts for more years than he can remember, Lilly Vasquez.

With the excitement of a big family wedding, Jack has an excuse to stick close, but Lilly doesn't appreciate the attention, especially since it stirs up a bee's nest of long-buried feelings. Likewise, Jack is dealing with his own attraction to the fiery brunette, and it's making him crazy. He needs to stay objective to keep Lilly safe, but his heart isn't listening to reason. Will the long-time friends succumb to the small town magic and take the biggest risk of their lives? Or will they play it safe, and miss their happily ever after?

Return to Compass Cove and all the fun and interesting characters that inhabit the town. After a successful career in Hollywood, Lilly Vasquez returned home and opened her own salon, but she has never told anyone why she returned, so when a movie starts shooting scenes at the local college, she has to come to terms with her past. Jack Miller returns to town for his brother’s wedding and attaches himself to Lilly’s side to “help” with the wedding plans. He has an ulterior motive: Lilly’s complaint has caught the FBI’s attention and Jack knows there is more to the story than is in the reports. Lilly can’t believe that her first love is back, and just won’t leave her be. Moon weaves a tale of first love turning into adult love with the realities of recovering from physical and emotional abuse. Moon writes with a deft hand to balance humor and the seriousness of abuse. I absolutely love the “Grannies” and their antics. This was a quick, enjoyable read that had me alternating between laughter and a few tears. #CompassCove #AllofMe #JeannieMoon

All of Me by Jeannie Moon Compass Cover #3 Compass Cove has a shop with a precious historical compass that legend says will point to your true soul mate. It is a wonderful small town community where more than one couple in the series has proved the infallibility of the compass. In this book we find that once again the compass will do its job for Jack Miller and Lilly Vasquez. Jack and Lilly have known one another for years. They spent time together as children and though Jack is older than Lilly they have always been aware of one another. When at eighteen Lilly tried to tell Jack how much she cared for him...he was not ready. Fourteen years later they are given a second chance to be together in the weeks leading up to the wedding of Jack’s brother and the woman he fell for in the delightful first book of this series, Then You Came. Lilly, hairdresser to Hollywood stars, returned home after a rough relationship. She just wanted to get away. When the man she had trouble with comes to Compass Cover to make a movie she is on edge. When Jack’s FBI boss gives him a case to follow up on while he is home and he realizes Lilly may be at risk he is more than willing to put his all into keeping Lilly safe and solving the case. We find out that Lilly has a lot to work through and there is nobody better able to help her than Jack. Returning to Compass Cover was a delight. I enjoyed seeing the couples from the previous two books AND finding out that perhaps Jack’s brother Doug and one of Lilly’s friends may end up together in a future book. I also enjoyed seeing other people in town interacting and LOVED the relationship that developed between Lilly and Jack. Jack was definitely one FINE man and even though it took him a long to realize Lilly was the woman for him...reading how that came about was a treat to read today. Did I like this book? Yes Do I want to read more in this series? Yes 4 Stars

I really enjoyed this book, my first by Jeannie Moon. She's been on my TBR pile for a while now and I should have got around to reading more of her books before now as I loved this one, it reminded me of the style of Jill Shalvis, one of my favourite authors, and I'm definitely going back for a return visit to Compass Cove to read the two previous books in this series now. Lilly is a hairdresser who owns her own successful salon in Compass Cove. She used to be a hairdresser on movie sets but after a bad-break up with a nasty film-star she was dating she fled home to Compass Cove and put the Hollywood lifestyle behind her. She didn't tell any of her friends the extent of his abuse as she wanted to put it behind her and felt as if people would blame her for not leaving sooner. But then a movie starts filming nearby and Gio, the nasty ex is the star and in Lilly's town. So Lilly lodges her concerns with the local police, as she had a restraining order on him before, just in case he tried anything. Then Jack (FBI Agent), an old crush of Lilly's, returns home for his brother's wedding, but is also checking out Lilly's concerns as it crosses police boundaries, and so finds out the whole file on what happened. Lilly has loved Jack forever, but he rejected her when she was 18 and they've always circled each other since then. Their friends and family are very close though so they've bumped into each other over the years at various gatherings. There are some great characters in this book (loved the grannies!) and although there are two previous books in the series it doesn't really detract from this story, it just makes me want to go back and find out Adam & Mia and Nick & Jordan's stories. I really enjoyed the style of writing, very easy-reading, I read most of it in one day sitting in the garden! Very enjoyable and highly recommended.

This is a serious look at the after effects of physical and mental abuse that tempers the life of Lilly Vasquez. She was a well sought after movie stylist who abruptly left that life after an ugly break up with star Gio Graham. She returned to her home in Compass Cove to start over but the trauma lingers on. Unfortunately, her abusive ex is in town filming and Lilly is terrified to see him. Jack Miller, FBI agent is also in town for a family wedding. He and Lilly always connected when they were teens and he is there to watch over her and protect her from Gio. Jack is gentle, non-demanding and falling for Lilly. He begins to crack her defenses and the wall around her. I voluntarily read and reviewed an advanced copy of this book. All thoughts and opinions are my own.

I loved Lilly and Jack's story. I cried a few times, laughed and cheered. Hopefully there will be more to come soon.

I loved returning to Compass Cove and seeing Lilly come back home. She left home years earlier, after confessing her feelings to Jack & being turned down. She became a hair stylist to the stars in Hollywood but after some trouble with an ex she decided to open a salon in Compass Cove. She thought she was doing well until trouble, in the form of her ex showed up. Jack now works as an FBI agent & realizes he has feelings for Lilly so he decides to stick close to her for protection. He has to work hard to show her how he feels about her as well as seeing to her safety.

4.5 Stars! Author Jeannie Moon has another winner with her latest release, All of Me. This is the third book from the Compass Cove series and it can be enjoyed as a standalone. This is a wonderful group of books that you should definitely add to your TBR list. Lilly Vasquez loved being a Hollywood hairstylist. She was well-liked and her talent was recognized by the big filmmakers. Her romantic relationship with a major movie star was all over tabloids, and she felt everything was perfect, until it all went horribly wrong. Lilly moved back home to Compass Cove, a small coastal town on Long Island. Opening her own salon while being near her family and friends brought a slice of peace back into her life. Then her teenage crush, FBI agent Jack Miller, roars back into her life, and helps her cope with the past. The kiss they shared 15 years ago seems like it was just yesterday. Jack is a workaholic and has witnessed many horrors as a public servant. He plans on being in town for only a short time to attend his brother's wedding. Then he runs into Lilly, and she turns his life upside down. Jack has read Lilly's file and knows that her ex was a complete sociopath. As a result, he sticks to her like glue. Their time together rekindles old feelings and evolves into much more. All of Me is a quick-paced read with well-defined and interesting characters. I loved the way Ms. Moon evolved Lilly and Jack's relationship, with discovery, understanding, and tons of heat. Their respective grandmothers add a lot of fun to the seriousness of the plot. If you are looking for a contemporary romance with some surprising moments, an engaging plot, and a happily ever after that will leave a smile on your face, get yourself a copy of this book. Complimentary copy provided by the publisher via NetGalley.

I discovered and fell in love with this author’s work when I read book one in the series. Each story has been wonderful and this one was no exception. We are back in Compass Cove, where the legend promises that the Jenning’s compass will stop spinning when it points to your true love. This story belongs to another Miller sibling, FBI agent Jack Miller and Lilly Vazquez. No one knows why Lilly returned home and opened a hair salon, when she was doing so well in LA as a hair stylist for the stars. She’s kept a secret that changed her forever and it’s effect might never be overcome. Jack is back in town for his brother’s wedding and he still has feelings for the young girl he turned away fourteen years ago. As secrets are revealed and feelings between the two develop, Lilly’s world is once again shaken up. Will she be able to deal with her “enemy” and fears? Will Jack and Lilly miss their chance of love because of words spoken in anger? At times heartbreaking and at others heartwarming , it’s also a story about domestic abuse and the long term effects it has on the victim. Feelings of worthlessness , terror and shame are hard to overcome, especially when dealing with them alone. But family, friends and that special person that loves and support you, can conquer all. Another wonderful book in the series. Hoping that future stories revolve around Natalie, Doug and Luca. I was entrusted a copy of this book by Netgalley and Tule Publishing. The opinions expressed are solely my own.

I really liked All Of Me! I love the “older brother’s friend” story line a lot and Jack was such an incredible hero! I was so glad that the past characters make appearances. The location of this series is awesome; it’s almost a character of its own! A super fun addition to the series, and a great read.

Lilly and Jack gave me all the feels! Lilly is a strong woman, overcoming something traumatizing. Coming back home and leaving her life to rebuild a new one. Never did she expect Jack to come back home for his brother's wedding and all of her fantasies to come true. Not knowing the strength she had inside, Jack helps her see herself in a new light. Jack is a protector by nature. And when he learns someone has hurt Lilly, that he will be in their town, he vows nothing will ever hurt her again. Memories from years ago plague him. Why did her ever turn her away? Too young to know what was standing right in front of him. But with them spending all their time together, passions flair and there is no doubt she has always been his woman. In his mind, in his heart. Now just to make her believe. Can these two find their way to one another like the compass has said, or will past hurts and present trials keep them apart?? 2 likes

WOW!! I loved, loved, loved revisiting Compass Cove with Lilly and Jack in All of You by Jeannie Moon, book three in her Compass Cove series. Once again she made me fall in love with her hero and heroine, Jack and Lilly, not that it was difficult to do. Lilly’s return to Compass Cove has an air of mystery as why she left California and her successful career as hair stylist to the stars. Jack is an FBI special agent who is rarely in Compass Cove because of his dedication to his job. While he has returned for Best Man duties for his brother’s wedding he was also tasked with one more case; a case that involves Lilly. There is definitely magic in the town of Compass Cove, magic that helps Lilly and Jack rediscover the love they once hid from each other. The magic and love would also help Lilly heal her heart and regain trust in men. There is also the love and support of family, reminding Lilly and Jack of promises they made to marry when they were children. Lilly was the yin to Jack’s yang, sun to his moon, and sail for his boat. They would not be able to outrun fate, no matter how many mistakes they make. Ms. Moon wrote a wonderful and emotional story that is not to be missed. She provided a tale rich with sexual chemistry, amusing banter, and endearing characters giving Lilly and Jack a chance at true love and having a future together. I highly recommend All of Me to other readers. I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this book.

All of Me is the third book in Jeannie Moon’s Compass Cove series. I enjoyed watching Lily and Jack reconnect after a lengthy time apart. Both have had experiences that have altered their lives through the years. Jack was in the military and now is a member of the FBI while Lily became a hairdresser and lived amongst the royals of Hollywood. When they reconnect, we discover that Lily has run away from an abusive relationship that has changed her. When her past comes back to haunt her, Jack steps in and protects her from her evil past. I loved watching them grow and find themselves. It was a refreshing read that I recommend. I received an advance copy of All of Me and chose to read and review it. This is my honest review.

Friends to lovers story that takes place in one of my favorite fictional towns, Compass Cove. Lilly has always had a secret crush on Jack, she even offered her virginity to him when she was eighteen, but he turned her down. Now Lilly has returned home to open her own beauty shop and Jack has returned home for his brother's wedding and a special assignment with the FBI, protecting Lilly. Soon they can't deny their feelings but is Lilly able to trust another man? Love this small town that gives you a real sense of community. Lilly and Jack have great chemistry, very likeable characters. It was great to catch up with previous characters. This book is part of series but can be read as a stand alone. I highly recommend.

Old friends, Lilly Vasquez and Jack Miller, are reunited when Lilly returns to her hometown of Compass Cove and Jack takes on the job of protecting Lilly from her abusive ex. Eighteen years ago, Lilly confessed her love for Jack, but Jack turned her away. Lilly never got over the rejection. She moved to LA where she became a stylist to the stars and eventually ended up in a relationship with a well-known actor. When the relationship turned abusive and Lilly couldn't take it anymore, she went back home. FBI agent, Jack didn’t plan on settling down. With a job that had him traveling all the time, a wife and family didn’t fit that lifestyle. But when he takes on the job of protecting Lilly, everything changes. He has finally fallen in love and will do anything to keep Lilly safe and start a new life with her. I really liked the previous Compass Cove books, so I couldn’t wait to read this book. Lilly is a character that I could easily relate to. She got taken advantage of and in a situation that got out of control. She found the strength to leave and take her life back. With the help of her friends and family, Lilly was able to feel safe again and start her life over. It was fun seeing her and Jack finally get together. The story flowed easily. The plot was well written and all of the characters fit well within the story.
