All In Release Blitz & Review

I’ve spent years turning my life around.

Burying my demons in one night stands and my work as the CEO of Morgan Securities.

My routine worked for me until I met her—a temptation dressed in red.

I walked away at first, but as luck would have it, she was hired as my company’s interior designer.

Soon she became an addiction I couldn’t escape.

What I didn’t know is she had a secret that would change everything.

One that turned into everything I ever wanted. 

But sometimes when life hands you lemons, they go sour.

No matter how hard I try to fight it, my old demons would come back to haunt me in the most unexpected ways.

Holly and my son are my salvation, and I want nothing more than to be all in with them.

No matter what.

My Review

Oh My Gosh!! This book Y’all! Freakin Fantastic! It is just an amazing office/secret baby/one-night stand that later kind of becomes a second chance romance/single parent romance.  The office part added a bit of a forbidden aspect to it. Yummy! So Flippin Awesome!! Liam (he’ll always be Levi to me) Holly, and little Matty’s story will turn even the most cynical of hearts into a gooey mess.  

Let’s start with Holly. What an amazing Gal, Y’all! She is spunky and beautiful.  She has always been the responsible one. One reckless night she throws caution to the wind. A few drinks, one spontaneous encounter,  one lasting consequence equals two pink lines. Thought that night changed everything for her. 

“This isn’t me. I have never been the girl who throws caution to the wind. I’m not reckless and I don’t do things on a whim. I, Holly Jenkins, do NOT have one night stands.”

She wouldn’t change for the world, her precious little boy Matty was the result. He is the cutest, most bashful little guy.  Although she unexpectedly became pregnant with him she settles into life as a single mom, she has supportive parents and an amazing best friend, Terry. She had pretty much accepted that she would never run into the man that fathered her son again, until she arrives for her new job as an interior decorator for Morgan Securities, and sees a face she is all too familiar with. 

“Why couldn’t we just cross paths at an Applebee’s?”

Her new boss, Liam Morgan, is the one reckless, one night stand she had that resulted in her son!! Dropping the “Congratulations you’re a Daddy”  bomb on Liam, is probably the easiest part of the journey to HEA that Liam and Holly must endure. 

Liam Morgan is just so sexy and fine and comes off a bit bad and standoffish at times. He’s unapologetic in what he wants in a woman and no one has been able to change that…Until he meets Holly. Something about her calls to him, even though there are parts of him that are broken and flawed he still wants a chance with her. Given everything these two have been through you can help but to see they are inevitable. Now that’s not saying their journey is easy, it’s anything but. I mean  HE has NOT had an easy time over the last few years. Giving in to addictions and reckless behaviors, he has been constantly working hard to overcome his demons. Constantly fighting the urge not to replace one addiction with another, 

I don’t want to give any spoilers away. I will just say it was fantastic. When he finds out he is a dad, it is obviously a shock, but all the emotions, how he embraces it. He runs the gamut of feelings and it’s so believable. The way he was with Matty. OMG! Holy Don’t Forget To Take Your Birth Control Ladies! Holly never stood a chance, and neither did I. I laughed, cried, and I fanned myself and I swooned. It was sexy and sweet and everything in between. It was just enough naughty and the perfect amount of nice. IT.WAS.EVERYTHING! 

“I wish I knew where this girl has been all my life to have given myself to her sooner.”

This book has moments that will  have you going WTF is happening?! Told in dual POV, which is my absolute FAVORITE It will have you panting, swooning and fanning yourself one minute as you get caught up in their sweet and romantic whirlwind almost insta-love like romance. 

I’m not gonna lie to you my dear friends, be ready to chuck your beloved kindle right across the room at various points throughout this story ( don’t worry no actual kindles were harmed during the reading of this story. I just wanted to shout NAUGHTY WORDS from the rooftops) and I may or may not have texted Erica and had to vent!!

Prepare yourself my friends… you won’t want to stop until you’ve devoured every single syllable of this great story. Holly, Liam, sweet Matty, Sam,Terry, River and even Jax. All the amazing secondary characters. I love them all.  I absolutely can’t wait for more from this crew.

When it comes to relationships, I’m a magnet for attracting all the wrong men.

I need a date—desperately—when I find out my lying, cheating ex is going to my best friend’s wedding.

Trusting the stars, my meddlesome Grams places a personal ad in the paper for me with one stipulation:

Leos need not apply.

While taking care of her, an all too familiar pediatric nurse with startling blue eyes asks me on a date.

But he’s a Leo. Not only by name, but by birth date.

This patient, caring, determined man wants me, but my heart has paid the ultimate price in the past.

Will he be the one to mend my heart or will I pay the price once again?

This is the 4th book in the Written in the Stars Series but it is a Complete Standalone (every book in the series can be read on it’s own and covers each horoscope sign)

My Review

Ladies Love Leo!! He’s MINE Though! Leo Price OWNS my heart! Put a fork in me I’m done y’all, I’m all gooey and soft inside. I didn’t think it was possible to love Leo Price and Claire anymore than I already did. But clearly I’m obsessed with them and their story. I keep going  back and re-reading some of my favorite parts and realize I somehow managed to fall harder in love with them each and every time I do this. ( it’s so good and I don’t want to let him and Claire go just yet) This novella is part of the Written in the Stars Stars Series and it is phenomenal! 

I love Claire. She burrowed into my heart from page one. This beautiful woman hasn’t had an easy road. But like the rest of us, she just wants someone to love her, and in the past that quest to find someone has only left her heartbroken and shattered from the inside out. She has a fantastic support system. Her hilarious grams and some pretty fantastic friends have supported her through everything, picked her up when she was devastated and broken. But now they are pushing for her to get back out there and find someone who will love her for who she is, imperfections and all.

They have no problems intervening to ensure the stars align and she meets her soulmate either. Claire is sweet and has so much to offer. She’s a loving granddaughter, fantastic friend, and an extremely forgiving person. She has the biggest heart, y’all. She just needs the right person to make her realize all of that. That man IS Leo Price, step brother to the last asshole that left her broken-hearted. 

Leo Price is LIFE y’all! He’s a deliciously sweet and swoony love bug. He is gorgeous and funny. As a pediatric nurse, He dedicates his life to taking care of others. He’s known Claire for a while and he’s always wanted her, but unfortunately it wasn’t in the cards, or the stars for them at that time. When he sees his opportunity now, he knows he will not lose his chances to win her heart this time. He knows that Claire’s heart is fragile. I love, love, love how unselfish he is. He handles her delicately when he needs to, but at the same time, is also pushing her in a way that’s healing to the broken parts of her, and it’s beautiful to read, I totally cried y’all. The passion between these two is crazy freakin hot and they have witty banter for days. Leo continued to do things over and over and I was like “ HE IS PERFECT.”

This book is one you will want to devour in one sitting. It’s sexy and swoony and sweet. But it’s also funny and all the secondary characters are hilarious. It’s like this smorgasbord of genres because it’s got a little bit of everything you could possibly want. It’s got the perfect ratio of sex mixed in to this great storytelling. Erica weaves together this amazing story that is so  engaging I felt like a part of it. I want to hang out with grams and watch her tv shows. Lol  

This Story flows perfectly. You will laugh, cry, fan yourself, be on the edge of your seat for a minute, chuck your panties and your kindle.( because there are a few moments of sheer frustration) I love that about Erica’s writing, she always writes these stories that make you feel like you fell down the feelings tree and hit every branch on the way down. Lol  

This book is that good! You need to read it. Point blank. Period! GAH! Leo and Claire are ultimate couple goals. They are just EVERYTHING!

 My Cr8zysockbookblock blog wrap up for this book! 

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️- I love Erica Marselas. Her writing always grabs my attention page one and doesn’t let me go until the last word of the epilogue. I know that with any book of hers I read I am going to get everything I want and more. I’m gonna get something that’s full of witty banter, heat, emotions and some fantastically frustrating moments as well. Leo Price gets all my stars! 

🔥🔥🔥🔥-Boy do I ever love the way Erica’s characters throw down in pound town! Leo Price was the perfect lover! Beyond Hawt!! 🔥🔥

Excerpt

“You still smell the same, you know. I hate you most days, but I can’t forget how fucking amazing you smelled.” I brush back her hair with my fingertips, and I can’t miss the small tremor that runs through her body. I affect her. This is good, and I plan to use this to my advantage. “Or how good you looked underneath me.” Her chestnut hair still shines like I remember, and I can easily visualize how it looks twisted around my fingers. How her cheeks heated up to a nice pink after I made her come… and don’t get me started on her legs looking like sex in these heels and how good they would look wrapped around my neck. Fuck. I’m kidding myself if I say she doesn’t affect me and doesn’t make my dick hard at the sight of her. Snap out of it Jaxson. Now isn’t the time. “Tell me I actually meant nothing to you, and I’ll go away.”

My Review

Absolutely Unputdownable! Remarkable! Phenomenal!! Erica is one of my absolute favorite authors. I totally have a fastest one-click finger in the south when it comes to her books. Barely Breathing is my new favorite book of hers (At least until her next one comes out)  River and Jax’s story sucked me in from the first paragraph of the prologue and I instantly knew I was in for an emotional ride. I was lucky enough to early read this fantastic book, yet still I keep finding myself going back to certain parts of the book, because I’m not ready to let Jax and River go just yet. That’s how much these characters will stick with you. 

From the outside one would think River has it all. She’s gorgeous and engaged to Harry, a successful executive that works for her company. However this marriage will be to a man chosen by her controlling father. River has been suffering under her father’s control. It’s devastating the things this woman has endured. Y’all my heart just hurts to even think about it all. 

When her grandfather died leaving her to run the company, pushing her father out of his CEO position. He is livid and put a plan in place to take back control. The loveless arranged marriage to Harry is a part of that plan. She must figure out a way out of this mess and out from under her shady AF father’s thumb. In order to protect Jax, River unselfishly disappears for two years, breaking her own heart while leaving him shocked, devastated and brokenhearted and furious at her. Jax appears back into her life two years later just when she has her plans all figured out flipping her whole world on its side, will River lean on Jax for help or will she forget how to breathe and shut down? 

Jax has spent the last two years broken, bitter and twisted up over one that ran away. He doesn’t know why she took off like a thief in the night , but now that he’s got his sights on her again he decides he wants revenge. He wants to punish her and bring a world of hurt her way like she did to him.

Jax is so hot y’all! Like tattoos under a business suit, smokin’ hot in the sack.GAH!! Loves his sister. Yeah! Everything about this guy is super hot. The tension that radiates off him and River. Holy god! 🔥

This book will have you hanging on the edge. Told in dual POV, going between present time and back two years ago to where their story first began. It will have you panting, swooning and fanning yourself one minute as you get caught up in their sweet and romantic whirlwind romance.

Then have you ready to chuck your beloved kindle right at the wall the very next chapter next. ( don’t worry it’s my prized possession so it’s safe. I just screamed obscenities) From one minute to the next you have no clue Wtf is happening?

 Prepare yourself my friends… you won’t stop reading, forget adulting or anything else until you’ve devoured every single word. River, Jax and the amazing secondary characters. I absolutely can’t wait for more from this crew. Can a person die of anticipation ?!?! I need Liam’s book, like yesterday. LOL

 

Barely Breathing is the perfect title…Hell,  I was breathless for most of this freakin book. Either panting cause of it’s sheer blissful hotness. I mean double damn!! 🔥😍🔥 or I was holding my breath in suspenseful outrage. 

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐⭐⭐️- Five Stars… pssh that’s NOT nearly enough. I’m throwing in a sixth one! This story deserves ALL the stars! River and Jax’s story is full of angst and suspense. It’s got tension for days, frustration and heat and revenge. Plus a super hot hero with tattoos and a sexy, sassy heroine and fabulous secondary characters. 

🔥🔥🔥🔥- GAAHH!! Jax and River are hotter than the seventh circle of hell my friends. Like the stuff naughty dreams are made of. So sweet dreams 🔥🔥🥵
