If I had to describe All of You in five words, I’d choose honest, emotional, sexy, gripping, and rewarding. Christina Lee’s first Between Breaths story is simply fantastic and I practically devoured it in one sitting, thanks to the book’s captivating main characters.
Avery is a tough, independent heroine who’d like to think she has all the answers but truly doesn’t. She’s a compelling mix of strength and vulnerability, and a lot of that is a result of her upbringing. Avery’s mother is a mess (to put it kindly), and her horrible taste in men has left Avery scarred. Avery’s a survivor, but though she has no problem with casual flings, she’s scared of giving up control, of opening her heart to others. Because of this, she doesn’t know what to do when she meets Bennett, a man who’s nothing like anyone she’s ever met. Bennett is a to-die-for hero. He’s a gorgeous, tattooed virgin who has sensual appeal in spades, but what really captured me is his generous heart. Like Avery, Bennett didn’t have the best experience growing up and he’s had to be both brother and parent to his siblings for much of his life. He gives all of himself to those he cares about, but he doesn’t let anyone walk all over him. He’s the perfect match for Avery – strong and sexy, but also patient and kind.
The chemistry Avery and Bennett have is electric, making the pages of All of You fly by. The road to happiness is not only filled with ups and downs, but sexual tension that is just plain hot. Bennett may be attracted to Avery, but that doesn’t mean he’s going to fall into bed with her. He wants more than just sex, he wants…well…all of Avery. He’s the catalyst for Avery coming into her own and it was truly beautiful to watch how each of them grows over the course of All of You. Their journey was a mix of sensuality and raw emotion, and I enjoyed every minute of it.
All of You is a wonderfully addictive story that will keep you reading late into the night. Christina Lee has a unique voice and a talent for penning honest, endearing characters. I loved All of You and I can’t wait to read the next Between Breaths book, Before You Break.
