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.

My Review

EEEEPPP! SQUEE! And a big friggin’ YES!!!

I have been soooooooo excited to get my greedy little fingers on this book, I feel like I have been waiting so long to get Tessa and Luke’s story, simply because I knew it was going to be amazing!

And of course it was! 

I abso-fucken-lu-tely LOVED IT!

I swear J. Daniels books just keep getting better and better, from the witty dialogue, to these feisty as fuck characters I’m always completely consumed and addicted when reading her books. 

I read All I Want in one sitting, and was soooooooo upset when I finished.

All I want is one of those books that I just didn’t want to end! I swear I was pissed off at myself for reading it so fast, I even went through skimming certain parts again a few times, just to make myself feel better.

This book has it ALL; we get to connect with Mia, Ben, and Nolan, which I LOVED!!! 
All the while getting Luke and Tessa’s all over the spectrum of emotions story. 
God, its soooooooo good!

This book was crazy everywhere with emotions, in true Daniels fashion I laughed, smiled, 
clenched my nether regions, had nose twitches, tummy flutters, a lot of eye stings followed by tears and of course a big ass smile by book end! Jesus, it was FANTASTIC!

Being an emotional reader, I love books that consume me, making me feel a real connection to the characters, so much so that’s its like I have tunnel vision and cannot see my life beyond the book. 
For me All I Want gave me that.  I like ignored my life and just read and read. Loving every second I spent being in my tunnel trance while I read this book.

Bhahahahaha! What an epically amazingly witty prologue to start us off right!! 
Tessa has set the stage for her story and I knew my little firecracker would start us off with a bang, but that was just awesome!

Poor Tessa Kelly twelve long months after breaking up with Luke she’s gone without sex, with no prospects in sight, but she finally decides that she needs to get laid, enough of pinning over Luke Evans. So as a woman with needs, she does what woman today do when they need a good fuck, taking matters into her own hands she says …hello to internet dating!

Oh god, what follows is hilarious, all the while I feel so much sympathy for Tessa, I can’t help but be soooooo consumed with the hilarity of her date match ups. Gerbil guy killed me!!!

I just love Tessa, she is such an awesomely complex character, she’s strong willed, funny, sassy and best of all loves soooo very hard, god my heart just melted for her at points in the book, 
I had tears for this girl. Simply put, I needed shit to work out for her.

Then there's the real reason for Tessa's misery, and need to get laid by a virtual stranger...
Luke Evans.

Ohhh Luke! I simply fell soooo much into a lusty swooning haze over this man! From the issues with his father to reading his POV about his feelings for Tessa I was caught, hook line and sinker. 
I simply adored him. 
He did however piss me off at times let me tell you!

Reading Luke's POV at times ANGERED me! I found myself getting frustrated with his doubting just how strong Tessa's love for him just might be and his not wanting her to witness the imperfect parts. Damn stubborn man.
I just wanted to yell at him trust her to help...JUST FUCKING LET HER IN!!!!!

Luke is soooo guarded about his feelings for her, his past and letting her in beyond the erected walls, allowing her to fully infiltrate more than his mind, but his heart and everything that comes along with loving him. His struggle to let Tesssa into his whole life was stressing me out! wanted to shake some sense into this infuriating sex on a stick of a man. Geesh!

 But OMG!!! The things he says about Tessa, then to Tessa (finally) had me swooning, smiling and completely smitten., forgiving him completely for stressing me out. 
This man is just such a clenchingly good character, when not making me want to give him a good throat punch for being an ass!

Luke and Tessa both had me in tears hearing the longing and raw emotions they felt for each other, fuck it was killing me them not being together!  There were times where I found my self worrying I wasn’t going to get my ending, which would have meant I would have been cyber stalking Ms. Daniels until she made that shit right! 

But thank god, a text message and a baby help to get this couple to where I needed them to be! 
Thank fuck for that!

Overall, I loved loved loved it! It’s a read so full of raw emotion, humour, scortchingly hot sex, starring two amazingly loveable characters that will have you swooning and cheering them on HARD to finally be the couple we know they are meant to be!
