All I Want Is You
But everything changes when Cayson finds Skye at a party, drunk and incoherent. Unable to stand on her own two feet with breath reeking of alcohol, she’s easy prey to the men staring at her noticeable chest. Cayson immediately scoops her into his arms and takes her home. But when they arrive at the house, Skye doesn’t want to sleep. Instead, she wants Cayson in a way she’s never had before.
What will this mean for their relationship? Is it the start of something Cayson has always dreamed of? Or will it be the end?
First of all, I really like this author. I LOVED her Beautiful Entourage series. But this book...yikes. I can really only pinpoint 3 major positives that this book has going for it:
But after that…
Here’s a list (because there’s so many I can’t put them in paragraph form) of all the crap that bothered me and almost made me DNF the book:
In case I didn’t make myself clear, I hated the heroine, Skye. She might be my least favorite romance heroine of all time. And that’s saying a lot, people. I’ve read A LOT of books. I’ve seen things that can’t be unseen.
So, long-story-short: if I were you, I’d skip this one, folks.
Does this book contribute to or help crush the romance stigma?
Contributes! It’s so unrealistic it would be funny if it weren’t so offensive.
Other reading suggestions
Read the author’s Beautiful Entourage series instead. Book 1 is particularly good. Or, for a friends-to-lovers story with a likeable hero AND heroine, try Linda Kage’s Priceless.
Haha! Love your writing voice. I wrote a review on the same book, and I had similar reservations.

Thanks so much, Jess! I enjoyed your review as well. You're much more diplomatic in your criticism than I am! I agree that this one could've been great, because I know the author is super talented. I LOVED her Beautiful series, especially book 1. I definitely won't stop reading this author's work, but I might have to sit out the rest of this series. Thanks so much for commenting!
