He ruined me.
Even though I knew he was playing games, I couldn't resist him. He was under my skin, in my blood, and deep in my bones.
He saved me.
My life was a lie and I had no idea. He forced me to see the truth. Although it hurt, he healed me.
Because of him, I was strong enough to survive.
Review—All or Nothing by C.C. Wood
“His arm wrapped around my waist, anchoring me close to him, and I lost all will to argue. It felt so good to be held that I no longer gave a dame who was doing it. I just needed the comfort.”
It’s amazing how you can picture a story going one direction and you’re taken on a completely different ride with something altogether not what was expected. That is what All or Nothing was for me. When I started reading I was pulled in by the forbidden attraction, the disgust of being openly propositioned while attached to someone else. I was convinced the good guy would get the girl…
And I guess he did. Only he wasn’t the good guy I thought he was…nor was the bad guy for that matter. I missed sleep over this story, and the torture of my stomach twisting in knots over what was, is, and will be, made each page deliciously enticing to keep going.
These pages are full of deception, envy, lust, and pure animalistic passion. Forget love, for some reason King and Jena’s story transcends that emotion all together…at least for me. She’s sassy, smart, and opinionated. He’s brooding, mysterious, and 100% alpha. He makes no apologies (except one) and takes no prisoners. She takes no crap (except his—sort of) and holds nothing back. When they collide, it’s explosive…and when push comes to shove, there are no greater feats than keeping the other safe.
So, when Jena realizes her life has been orchestrated and manipulated by people she trusted, things no longer look black and white. The man she thought was her forever is replaced by a man she never saw coming; yet can’t seem to let go of, no matter the cost.
“When he smiled down at me, I felt as though a band was wrapped around my chest, squeezing tight. I suddenly realized I was making a colossal mistake. I was falling in love with King, which could only end in one way. My heartbreak.”
