A wall so strong no man could ever tear it down – tick, tick, tick!
Or so I thought.
Until I meet Detective Ben Hunt, the owner of exquisite blue eyes, a god-like physique and a seductive smirk that makes me weak at the knees. He charges into my life like a force of nature. No matter how hard I try to keep the walls up around my heart, he’s made it his mission to shatter them. I have no chance of resisting him, but I would make sure I won this tug of war.
Which was what I wanted.
Right? When did the idea of losing myself to him start to sound so good?
I wish Ben was the only battle I faced. There’s a reason this small town needs a good detective. One way or another I’m going to have to brace for impact, because no wall I build can stop the new threat thundering toward Monroe.
After all, secrets only stay a secret for so long around here.
*** I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review ***
I remember writing in my review for Be My Temptation (The Crawford Brothers #2) and saying….. Let me just take a moment to talk about Ben Hunt from the snippet that we get of him, it was just enough to leave a lasting impression. I know that I’m going to love him and his alpha ways. I can’t wait for his book.”
Well, after finishing All That I Am the first book in Rachel’s new Men of Monroe series I have to say I wasn’t disappointed. Detective Ben Hunt is pure alpha, he is domineering, sweet, cocky, badass, cool, sexy with a heart of gold. It’s safe to say that he is my favourite leading man from a Rachel Brookes book.
“Mr. Blue Eyes, who transformed into Mr. Intense, and was now Mr. Alpha”
Just like Ben I loved home décor boutique owner Sasha and her sassy mouth, she was such a great character. Sasha didn’t do serious relationships, but that all changed when Ben Hunt with his I won’t take no for an answer attitude came into her life. I adored the relationship that developed between them; they were perfect for each other.
“You gave me something I never wanted, something I tried hard to avoid, but you showed me it was something I needed. You gave my heart the chance to start over.”
“Let me be the man who gives you the life a woman as incredible as you deserves”
This book was sweet, sexy with a little bit of a mystery element thrown in. There were a few twists and turns that added to the story. Loved Sasha best friend Missy. It’s a been a while since we had had a book from Rachel and all I can say it was ALL that I Am was worth the wait. Rachel Brookes is a talented writer who writes with such passion. This book with pull on your emotions you will swoon, laugh and she doesn’t disappoint on the hot sexy scenes.
I really, enjoyed All That I Am and I can’t wait read the next book in series, My Only Reason Austin and Marnie’s story.
