He calms me. 

An unexpected long-distance friendship showed Gracelyn Dewey the ease of some relationships. Very few people could get past her walls and even then, fewer had the ability to see through her anxieties.

With him, she finds more—but circumstances wouldn’t allow them to keep it. Instead, they find an easy friendship with one another.

Until it wasn’t easy any more. 

She grounds me. 

In his line of work, Sawyer Meadows sees some gut wrenching things. He sees broken people, wounded people, fearful people. He loves his job, yet is losing a piece of himself in the mix.

But there was always her. Drawn to her quiet smile, he has always known she was meant to be something special to him.

A fact that became painfully evident when she found someone else to hold her. 

Somewhere along the way, we lost it. 

They are given one weekend together to fix their friendship.

The days can’t go off without any hitches though. When her recent past and his career collide, they’ll have to decide—is the distance enough to keep them apart? Or are they through letting everything else dictate their happiness? 

She may be my saving grace, but I plan on saving her.

She was my nightmare. Every time I closed my eyes, I watched her fall into that inferno. Over and over, I failed to save her.

I hadn’t been able to reach her, and the guilt only burned hotter over time. Four years later, I was the unreachable one.

Heroes aren’t always saints. Sometimes, we’re nothing more than jaded sinners driven by sleepless nights and hearts full of darkness.

And then I met her. She was a dreamer who managed to soothe my scars and heal my wounds.

But, as the flames closed in around us, I feared I wasn’t the right man to save her. That is until I realized she was the one woman I’d burn the world down to protect.

Synopsis:

Rock bottom. 

Liam had set up shop there. 

After an accident left him injured and unable to work, it wasn’t long before he ended up on the street with his dreams in the gutter. 

This was it. 

This was his life. 

Until the day he met Max Porter—a man who appeared to have it all. They didn’t meet so much as made eye contact as Max sneered at Liam, the bum occupying precious space on the sullied New York City street.

When Max stepped into oncoming traffic, a lesser man might’ve let him. But Liam risked his life to save Max only to be left to die without a second thought. 

When Liam woke up days later, he wasn’t himself…at least he wasn’t in his body. 

He was in Max’s.

And with Liam’s body on life support, there was only one logical conclusion: Max was trapped in Liam’s comatose body. 

Somehow the twisted hands of fate had given Liam a second chance; a chance to have it all. But with all the perks of Max’s life also came his problems. Finding balance in his new identity was challenged more so once Liam fell for Waverly, Max’s beautiful ex. 

Could Liam live out his life as another man or would he pull the plug and let fate decide? 

Would he lose his chance at true love?

Would he lose the chance to have it all?

Excerpt:

Scooting up, his body was gloved to mine, his mouth to my ear as he reached around me and pulled my left hand, placing it over the shifter, then he took my right hand and settled it over the throttle. “Think of this like a dance,” he instructed me, his voice husky. “Dance involves steps, coordination, knowing your partner. This isn’t much different.”

“Says you,” I griped. “This is hardly a dance partner. This is a death trap that could kill us.”

He chuckled, the sound low and deep, making my core clench. “You’re sitting on over five-hundred pounds of machinery here. Think about how much time and effort went into building this; the way someone had to know this bike so intricately to put it all together and make it move.”

“Just because they knew it doesn’t mean I do.” I appreciated the intricacy of the bike, but appreciating and driving it were very different things.

“I just mean there’s power here. You can make these 500 pounds of metal move if you want it to, if you trust yourself enough.”

He left my hands and softly ran his fingers up my arms to my shoulders. “It lives and moves so long as you let it, so long as you lead it, just like a good dance partner. Don’t think about the moves you need to make . . . feel them. Let the bike tell you when it’s time to shift.”

His fingers glided down my sides until they took a firm hold of my waist causing my breath to hitch as my back arched slightly. “It’s give and release, Waverly,” he went on, his voice deep and gravely. “You have to feel when it’s time to give and when it’s time to let go.”

Darting my tongue out, I wet my dry lips. How did he make shifting gears sound so hot? How in the heck was I supposed to manage this machine with Liam murmuring sexual innuendo in my ear? I wished I could somehow turn around and take him on the bike.

“You know, this would be an epic opening to a porn flick,” I announced causing him to burst into laughter.

“I hadn’t thought of that.” His body shook as he continued to laugh.

“I guess your mind isn’t as dirty as mine.” I shrugged.

“I guess not. What would the film title be?” he queried.

I twisted my mouth in thought. In my sexiest voice, I twisted my neck so he could see me as I pouted my mouth, “Shifting the Panhead. When good girls learn to ride.”

He choked he was laughing so hard. When he could form words again, he coughed out, “That does sound pretty dirty when you say it like that.”

“Anything can sound dirty when you say it the right way,” I quipped. “Sky,” I moaned. “Concrete,” I continued.

“Okay, okay,” he begged before clearing his throat. “Stop stalling your lesson with your dirty mind and your defiling of perfectly unperverted words.”

I wiggled my ass again. “You love how I defiled the word concrete. Admit it.”

“You keep shimmying your ass like that, this lesson is going to have to end while I go jump in the water.”


My Review:

To Have It All is a story about second chances. It's a journey unlike none I've read before. With a bit of suspended disbelief with a bit of a paranormal bent, this love story was unique and intriguing. At times I was shocked. At times I was awed. Most the whole time I was falling in love with these broken but beautiful characters. 

Liam was struggling. He was struggling financially and struggling emotionally. Feeling like he had no where left to turn, he was cast out on the streets of New York. But even through his struggles, Liam remained true to who he was: kind, caring and considerate. And what did it get for him. Dead. Trying to save a rich stranger from being hit by a bus, Liam took the hit instead. Then days later woke up in a life and a body that wasn't his. It was rich and powerful Max. Max also happened to be a jerk of the biggest variety. And just when Liam is trying to figure out what happened and if he can ever get his own life back, he meets Max's ex, Waverly. That's when things go from unusual to downright awkward. Trying to find his was out of this mess, it becomes clear that Max and Liam are linked and the ending might not be up to Liam at all. 

I enjoyed just how different this story was. The story was built layer upon layer giving a depth I didn't expect from such strange circumstances. Add in the secondary characters, and the story felt really well rounded. Of course there were a few bits that were definitely a bit out there and my suspension of disbelief really had to reach and I would have love some steamier sexy times but over all it was a really sweet and different kind of love story that I won't forget.

REVIEW

I really enjoyed this book! That sounds like i was surprised by that.  I'm not i actually love Chelle Bliss but i had been in a bit of a book hangover and wasn't getting into much at all.  This changed it.

This is the story Kennedy and Nix.  

Kennedy is a new undercover operative for an intelligence agency.  She's determined to do the job to the best of her ability.  She's sent undercover into a seedy underground bar.  She has a mark she's trying to get info from and during her encounters she meets Nix.

Nix is a criminal.  He's a computer hacker who can get into any system he wants.  He keeps himself under the radar stealing millions from the rich.  When he meets Kennedy he's instantly taken with her.  He knows she has secrets but he can't keep away from her.  There's a huge spark between them.  

He knows she's dangerous to him.  She knows he's dangerous to her but they can't keep away from each other.

I actually devoured this book.  It flowed so easily time just disappeared and i read it in no time.

The story is quite exciting you're worried she's gonna get caught snooping and you're worried she's gonna catch him.  Its cat and mouse all the way through.  

I loved Kennedy she's almost as badass as Nix.  She uses everything she has to get her job done.  She's definitely no victim heroine.  She fights and talks her way out of anything.

Nix, oooohhhh mmmyyyy goodness! He's hot! Dark and mysterious, quiet and humble, sexy as sin itself! Boy does he set fire to those sheets and and with the palm of his hand he can punish me any time!

The chemistry between the two was smoking from the start!  

I also loved the supporting characters.  I'm hoping Wolf gets his own book at some point! 

The plot has some twists but not so many you get confused by whats going on.  It has just the right amount to keep you flipping the pages.  

I can actually see myself re-reading this time and time again.  Highly enjoyable and i would recommend it to anyone!
