A kickass home décor boutique – tick
A sassy mouth and absolutely no filter – tick
A wall so strong no man could ever tear it down – tick, tick, tick!
Or so I thought.
Until I meet Detective Ben Hunt, the owner of exquisite blue eyes, a god-like physique and a seductive smirk that makes me weak at the knees. He charges into my life like a force of nature. No matter how hard I try to keep the walls up around my heart, he’s made it his mission to shatter them. I have no chance of resisting him, but I would make sure I won this tug of war.
Which was what I wanted.
Right? When did the idea of losing myself to him start to sound so good?
I wish Ben was the only battle I faced. There’s a reason this small town needs a good detective. One way or another I’m going to have to brace for impact, because no wall I build can stop the new threat thundering toward Monroe.
After all, secrets only stay a secret for so long around here.
Rachel Brookes always holds a special place in my heart. Ever since I read Be My December was introduced to her words and characters. I said then , that was a superb book and nothing will change that fact. All That I Am is a different sort of book and deserves its own praise for its beautiful story and the fact we get a tale that is full of twists and turns that leaves you wanting more by the end. Even so it is completed and that Ben finally got his story.
Ben Hunt was introduced along side with his partner Austin Hart in Be My Temptation which told the story of Austin’s sister Ashlyn. However my brain didn’t click until half through when the memories came flooding back to me. We were introduced to those two gorgeous males in that novel where they had smaller roles, they were memorable . So I was more then ready for Ben to get a starring role.
However I wasn’t ready for Sasha Hamilton. A woman who was broken yet rose from the ashes and become the woman she is today. Sassy and kind heart with a mouth that won’t hold back need be. Born into a family that is a institution around the town of Monoroe thanks to their family bar. Sasha has carved her own place as a business owner of her own little home décor store . Now it maybe just her brother Drew and her, but Sasha isn’t with out friends or adopted family. However there is one thing missing from her life. A man, Sasha isn’t too picky but she is looking for something special and the men of Monroe aren’t just cutting for it her. They can’t get pass the wall she put up and she thinks she is destined to stay single
Until the perfect man walks through the doors of Missy’s dinner and changes things for Sasha in a instance. As it no other then Ben Hunt who more then fits what Sasha is after but this detective isn’t going to let Sasha get away with out a fight. He is ready to break those walls down and shatter them. He is a force that she can’t get enough of. Even if she isn’t willing to admit it with out a battle. Something Ben is more then prepared for as there more to this story then first meets the eye.
Especially with what is around the corner. Something that this feisty sassy woman can’t handle on her own as much she wants to . She needs a man like Ben Hunt in her corner. Not just for his physical appearance but his skills as a detective. As secrets are about to come out and shake this town and family……
All that I Am is her finest book to date and was worth the wait. It was a complex thrilling book that cdidnt’ disappoint. Sasha Hamilton and Ben Hunt for all the teasing that was done about them, was everthing I thought the would be . I didn’t think Brookes had this kind of story in her . I didn’t expect a contemporary romance with a strong suspense in from Brookes in a million years. This isn’t lip service, this a blogger who is a reader first rediscovering and falling in love with the words of an author that she adores. Brookes has come back in a big way. With a tale of love , sorrow and supense, All that I am is definitely a keeper and I can’t wait for the next epic Monroe romance.
