All of Me debuted on November 4th and made three different Top 100 lists. The reviews are still coming in, but among them are:

~ The story is a smooth read and has characters that we enjoy getting to know. I love how the town has taken sides and hands a blue or pink ribbon to show their support of either Ivey or Jeff. I would recommend this story to anyone who believes in second chances and happy endings. ~ Amazon Reader, 5 star review

~  The characters were all believable and the story moved along at a great pace. I especially loved how the author slowly revealed the deep motivations behind Ivey’s actions and thought process and how she was able to grow and mature through the story. ~ Amazon Reader, 5 star review

Look for the sequel, Somebody Like You, releasing December 2014.

For Billy, Brooke is the one that got away, but he won’t let her go this time. Even if it means chasing every one of her prospective suitors away. Billy’s ready to knock this one out of the park. All he needs is a second chance.
