A Laurel Heights Novelette
Anna Godwin likes it spicy.
At least she used to. Somewhere between law school and real life, she lost her sparkle. Now she wears boring business suits to boring dates in her boring life.
The last time Anna remembers feeling that sizzle was with the one man who’s all cayenne and passion: Max Corazao, the one who got away.
Except Max still sees Anna as a woman full of spice. And Anna intends to do whatever she can to be that woman again—with his (unknowing) help…
All For You was a very light and fun read. It was mainly about trying to get back what you lost, trying to get the one that got away back. We were all young once and our priorities might have be different then. There are some of us, like Anna, who thinks that there’s that one guy that got away – that one guy that could have been the one but we let him go.
I liked Anna’s character a lot. I felt like she was a real person, like someone I could bump into at the grocery. She was funny, independent, determined, and real. She knew what she wanted and she worked hard to get it.
It’s nice of you to try, but bread is bread. You can disguise it with cinnamon and sugar, or spread jalapeño jam all over it, but in the end, it doesn’t change the taste. It’s bland to my tastebuds.”
Max, on the other hand, felt like he was a character in a story. He was an okay character, I guess. There just wasn’t enough about Max in the story for me to actually get to know him. I only knew three things about him: he’s a chef, he wants to teach, and he was still in love with Anna.
He paused to kiss her. “For the rest of your life, Anna.”
I also liked the minor characters. Freya was an awesome sister to Anna. I like their closeness. Megan was hilarious! Even Scott was an interesting character.
In summary, it was a book you’d want to read to kill some time on the bus or if you just want a quick laugh but don’t want to get into to much details and depth from novels. It’s a perfect summer read to calm down from reading something heavy and dramatic.
