"Heartbreaking...inspiring, uplifting and raw..." ― RT Book Reviews, A 5-star Gold Pick
A broken woman . . .
Crystal learned long ago that love brings only pain. Feeling nothing at all is far better than being hurt again. She guards her wounded heart behind a hard exterior and carries within her a deep mistrust of men, who, in her experience, have only ever used and taken.
A man in need of help . . .
Then Gabriel Dalton walks into her life. Despite the terrible darkness of his past, there's an undeniable goodness in him. And even though she knows the cost, Crystal finds herself drawn to Gabriel. His quiet strength is wearing down her defenses and his gentle patience is causing her to question everything she thought she knew.
Only love can mend a shattered heart . . .
Crystal and Gabriel never imagined that the world, which had stolen everything from them, would bring them a deep love like this. Except fate will only take them so far, and now the choice is theirs: Harden their hearts once again or find the courage to shed their painful pasts.
What I thought about Most of All You
Most of All You is a story of two damaged people. They both have had a horrifying childhood for different reasons and as adults they are both struggling with the legacy of the past.
Crystal is working as a stripper at the Platinum Pearl when she meets Gabriel. He's interested in hiring her to help him get past the anxiety he feels whenever someone touches him. He's got a good reason for that anxiety too, but he scares Crystal because when she's with him, she feels something and she can't deal with that.
The emotions in the first half of this book are so consuming. There's Gabriel with his horrifying past and Crystal with hers. It's so hard to see how either one of them will be able to get past the terrible circumstances life has handed them. But the spark between them is there, and when Gabriel steps in to help her after she's assaulted in the strip club parking lot, it's not quite the easy solution to everything. They both have some much to work through.
I loved the emotions in this story. Yes, it's dark. Yes, it made me get teary eyed. Every page held my interest and I just couldn't put this down. The story is told in dual POV and I really liked that about it. I loved Gabriel and all he represented to Crystal. It takes a while for these two to work through their broken pieces and see a future this isn't full of the ugliness of the past, but that just made it more satisfying.
If you are looking for an emotional story of two broken people who find and heal each other, you just might like Most of All You.
