All I Want (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.

I’ve started reading this series last month, and while I really enjoyed Where I Belong, I liked All I Want even more.

I liked the writing a lot better in this book, I felt this book was a lot more balanced than the first one. The premise was also great! We have Tessa and Luke, who broke up during the course of the first book, but are clearly very much still in love with each other, but they’re both trying to fight their feelings for different reasons.

I loved both Tessa and Luke, and I understood their actions most of the time, though at a certain point there, I just wanted to smack Tessa on the head… come on girl! But I loved how determined and strong she was, and I loved how deeply Luke loved, even if he didn’t know how to express his feelings correctly.

I also really liked the plot, and the reasons behind what happens. Luke and Tessa were perfect for each other, it’s really hard for me to even try to imagine them with anyone else but each other. So, J. Daniels did a great job writing these 2 characters 🙂 .

I’m really enjoying this series, and I’ll sure keep reading it.

Have you read it? What are your thoughts on Luke and Tessa’s story?
