MY GOODREADS REVIEW LINK
RATING: 4.5 Stars!
The beginning of any love story starts with the meet.
I’ve known Garrett Hollis since before I can remember, and I’ve loved him just as long. I loved him while he loved someone else. I loved him when he had a baby with her. I loved him when she left him.
The greatest of love stories is that between a dad and his daughter. I should know. I’ve had a front row seat. First steps, first words, all the big moments.
Garrett was just a teenager when Mia was born. I’ve watched him braid his daughter’s hair, hold her hand crossing the street, seen her asleep on his chest. I’m the best friend, the one they can count on for everything from dance lessons to motherly advice, anything they need. I’m their go-to girl.
The best part of any love story is the happily ever after.
But what if the happily ever after doesn’t include you?
All my life, that’s how long I’ve loved him.
Of course, he’s clueless.
A stand-alone, contemporary romance.
REVIEWER'S NOTE: I received an eARC from the author in exchange for an honest review.
I LOVED this book!
This is the kind of romance I love. One that hits every one of my feels and one I felt all the way to my heart and soul. It’s got all my favorite tropes. Second chance romance. Friends to lovers. Childhood friends. And hot sexy-times.
Garrett and Devlyn just worked and their chemistry and the slow build to romance was swoon-worthy, fun and filled with emotions and fantastic writing that captured their amazing story in all the right ways.
This book has been put in my re-read pile, in my favorites pile, and in my must-read pile. I’ll be suggesting it to all my friend.
Garrett Hollis was sixteen when he became a single father. Now he’s thirty-four and watching his teenage daughter Mia, graduate from high-school. He lives in Eden Valley, the same picturesque small town he grew up in. Having forsaken a potential athletic career and the dream of being an architect to properly raise his daughter, he has no regrets. He’s a great man. He’s a fantastic father. In between changing diapers, learning to braid hair and cleaning up puke, he’s had no time for a social life and his daughter is determined to change that before she heads off to college, which gives some hilarious and sometimes ridiculous dating situations.
Devlyn Drake is Biscuit Girl. She’s lived in Eden Valley all her life, too. And she’s Garrett’s best friend. She’s also been secretly in love with him since she was five years old. The moment she found out he was going to be a parent with the girl who stole him from her, she was devastated. But the day he brought Mia home alone, she vowed to always be there for him and Mia. Now having to watch the love of her life date other women, she’s torn between keeping her vow and moving on to find some kind of happiness of her own.
These two... Gah! I loved them from the start. Garrett was oblivious until he wasn’t. Devlyn was devoted, always. It might have taken Garrett a long time to catch on, but once he did, their chemistry was explosive. In the meantime, Devlyn’s unrequited love was heartwrenching to read. There were a couple of times her devastation broke my heart and brought tears to my eyes. The author did a perfect job of capturing all those feels and delivering them to the reader.
This story is written in dual POV’s between Garrett and Devlyn. There are also Letters To Mia, from her absent mom, which comes into play later. There are flashbacks showcasing life before Mia and life after Mia. You can’t help but feel for Devlyn as she stands on the outskirts of Garrett and Mia’s life. A part of it, but not. It’s heartbreaking and lovely all at the same time.
I can’t say enough about this read. It was just amazing from start to finish. I loved Garrett. He was a strong character who had morals and values and passed them on to his daughter Mia. Mia was fun and excited for life. She was a good girl and when life comes crashing down around her, she acted the way a normal teenager would. Devlyn was unique, charismatic, selfless and optimistic, even though her love life had such disappointments. She was always willing to do what was best... even at her own detriment.
The author did a phenomenal job writing all the character in this book! I just can’t say enough about that. I fell in love with the town, with the history, with the story and definitely with the characters!
The Wrap Up:
All My Life is filled with angst, heartbreak and a boatload of feels, not to mention sharp, witty dialogue and fun, enjoyable banter, giving this story deep, satisfying layers. I enjoy this authors books, but I have to say, this is my favorite Prescott Lane book to date! I couldn’t put it down!
