❤❤ All I Want by J Daniels- 4.5 star review ❤❤

From NY Times and USA Today Bestselling author, J. Daniels, the second book in the Alabama Summer series. 

***Author’s Note*** All I Want is a standalone novel, but to fully appreciate the f****ed-up mess that is Luke & Tessa, pick up Where I Belong first. 

Luke Evans is a heartbreaker. 
I didn’t want to give mine to him. Not when he kept me out. 
He gave me enough, just enough to make me fall in love with him. I say this to convince myself. But I know the truth. 
I would’ve fallen in love with him at a distance. 
Handing my heart over to Luke was the easiest thing I’ve ever done. I was naive when I wished for more, when I hoped he wanted the same things I did. 
I try to hate him. I try to forget him. 
But it’s not that easy. 
Love is a ruthless bitch, and I’m her latest victim. 

Tessa Kelly is a man-eater. 
When she sets her sights on you, she doesn’t just consume your heart, she goes for your soul. 
What we had was perfect, real, and all I would ever want. 
But she destroyed it. 
She destroyed us. 
I try to hate her. I try to forget her. 
But it’s not that easy. 
Love is for people who have hope, and I have none. 

**Warning: This book contains adult themes. 18+

Check out my review of book one, Where I belong, HERE

Jess. What. Are. You. Doing. To. Me. 

Luke is just. . . Heartbreaking. Seriously heartbreaking. Tessa and Luke. .  They're so freaking explosive when they're together. The chemistry and the steam and the emotions.

 Everything is flying high and running on full speed when they are together. And there's no stopping them, no stopping the Tessa and Luke freight train. 

I will tell you that this book was so emotional for me, I think this may have been the most emotional read I've had by J Daniels. I literally cried. Someone walks away and I cried. The reasoning , the heart break, the phone calls. I cried. J Daniels has pulled that raw heart break right out of me. That utter despair you feel when someone walks away and no matter what you do, they won't come back. I felt like she literally ripped my heart out. 

Okay maybe not that bad but it cracked and pierced and was left trampled on the ground. But then J Daniels takes the trampled heart and lets this broken man bring it back and revitalize it. Maybe you and I are not so broken hearted after all. The walls have come down, for our characters of course, and it's amazing. It's one of those beautiful broken love stories. It's like you can let out that breath you were holding waiting for everything to happen. 

Tessa and Luke are sure to steam up your scream and also leave you wanting to start a fight with someone just to have the angry make up part. J Daniels has been on my authors to watch list, and on this one she surely doesn't disappoint. Another super strong story delivered by an amazing author. 

I give this book 4.5 stars
