All of You by Christina Lee
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
4.25 Letting your heart in Stars
I really liked All of You. It was intense, sweet and very romantic.
Avery doesn’t have the best childhood. Her mother is loose, she doesn’t have a father figure and she’s trying to become a nurse so she can be able to take care of baby brother. Because of all of this, she doesn’t have relationships and she’s a fan of one-night-stands.
Bennett is your tattooed boy next door. Bennett lives in the same apartment complex as Avery. Avery thinks Bennett is hot and wants him, but Bennett isn’t looking for a friends-with-benefits kind of relationship. Both have issues and both aren’t willing to compromise.
Avery and Bennett
I’ve never been fond of loose heroines, but I liked Avery. I got her. She has a tough home situation and she copes by using guys for sex, so when Bennett comes into the picture, it kind of throws her off. Bennett is not your typical Hero.
I really liked Bennett because he is so different! As much as I love the bad boys, I have a soft heart for the good ones too. He’s sweet, loyal and very suborn. He values Avery and doesn’t want to cheapen her to a relationship based on sex. It was a refreshing change for me to have the Hero turned down the Heroine so much.
Of course there’s plenty of tension and sexual tension. Avery wants a no strings attached relationship and Bennett is looking for more. What I enjoyed the most is watching the two characters form a friendship and work out their issues.
The book is very fast pace and I wished it was a touch longer, but overall, it was a very pleasant read and I will be sticking to the series.
