All I Want (Alabama Summer, #2) by J. Daniels

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

4 Luke and Tessa Stars

I love Jessica Daniel’s reads, they are fun, light and very romantic. I’m also starting to love the Alabama series.

We got a tiny glimpse of Luke and Tessa’s story from the previous book, but you do not need to read the first book to understand this one.  We know Luke and Tessa dated briefly.  Tessa got a pregnancy scare and instead of confronting Luke about it, she simply asked him what he thought about having a baby. Luke said he wasn’t ready for a baby. This prompted Tessa to leave Luke, thinking he would never have a family with Tessa.  It’s a silly break-up, but it’s the start of the book.

I like the banter between Luke and Tessa. I’m a big fan of when the hero and heroine fight with each other. It adds so much tension and cuteness.  Luke and Tessa have been separated for a year but with Mia’s pregnancy and Mia’s baby coming, Luke and Tessa are interacting more.

Tessa doesn’t want to be single and she’s ready for a serious relationship. She goes on-line and tries to find someone. Luke isn’t happy with that idea Tessa meeting strangers from on-line. This creates a lot of friction and juicy scenes.

A good part of the issues between Luke and Tessa is because of the pregnancy scare, but it’s not a focal point. Luke is very guarded and it makes it difficult for Tessa to take him seriously.

The flow of All I Want is great and it’s an easy read. I like how Tessa tries really hard to move past Luke by dating other people and I like how jealous Luke gets. Of course we still get a little bit of Ben, Mia and Reed. Oh let me say, I can’t wait for Reed’s story, which is next.

Overall, if you are a fan of the series and loved Mia and Ben’s story, then you will not be disappointed with Luke and Tessa.
