There is so much story packed into this novella. This is such a different twist on anything I have ever read by Lindsay Detwiler. It deals with a couple heavier topics like addiction and suicide. Marley seems like such an addictingly care free person. I love her personality. How corky she is yet sweet and giving at the same time. Henry’s little appearance is just perfect!! I loved every second of it!! Alex was raised in the complete opposite environment that Marley was. Everything was precise and done for a reason. He is going to become a doctor, and move back to California to work with his father at the facility his father wants him too. For some reason this odd couple is the perfect fit for each other it seems. However they both have their demons they need to fight. In such a little book this author managed to evolve these characters so well it floored me. Did I want more??? Of course! I always want more when I fall in love with the characters. How did she fit a slow burn romance into a Novella?? How?? I really don’t want to spoil this book for anyone. So I really just suggest you go and buy it and read it for yourself!!
All of You by Lindsay Detwiler is a remarkable story of an ever-changing life for Marley, a twenty one year old girl with a tragic past. Both great things and never forgotten sadness took place on Cedar Bend Bridge. The Bridge is the place where Dr. Alex and Marley’s paths met. Alex and Marley were both up for a well needed adjustment to their lives. Great details of their ever changing attitudes toward life. As an animal lover, I love the reference of Henry the Mastiff in her books. Great story line. I’m looking forward to many more books by this author.
Favorite Quotes: You know, not all men are the devil. Look at me. I’m not half bad. He’s everything I’d never imagine my heart fluttering for… I’m more of a Wednesday Adams person, while he seems to be more like a Ward Cleaver. A very sexy, tempting Ward Cleaver, at that. Not that I’m judging. Okay, I’m judging This black-haired, Converse sneakers girl has snagged the sexy, supersmart doctor. I don’t know how the hell it happened, but I think he’s under my super odd, not-so-charming spell. I’m usually pretty low-maintenance because, well, when you live in a town with about five eligible bachelors, all of whom you’ve already slept with at one point and decided against, looking like a cover girl isn’t exactly a priority. My Review: All Of You was a quick, easy to follow, emotive, and heart squeezing story with a sweet and transformative romance between admirable and endearing characters. Written from a dual POV the premise straddled several genres and could be considered part New Adult, women’s fiction, small-town, contemporary romance, and family drama; although all that doesn’t really matter to me as I mainly consider it a well written, entertaining, and engaging read. The storylines were realistic, well constructed, and held my interest and attention throughout. I enjoyed and cared about the characters and wanted to know all about them. Marley was a bit offbeat for her small-town. She was tattooed, converse clad, clever, and partially broken yet sweet and easily lovable. I was quickly drawn to her and remained quite curious throughout while the wily writer gradually revealed their tragic family secrets at a tantalizing pace, which kept me intrigued and eager for each new tidbit. Alex was the perfect book boyfriend although both characters produced a new and improved version of each other by the book’s satisfying conclusion. Sigh, they have inspired me today, I seem to be looking forward to the next rainstorm and am even considering pulling out my long mothballed kayak. Miraculous!
