All I Want! LOVED this anthology!!

Tour Schedule

My review

 I LOVED this anthology! It inspired me to gather a couple of my writer friends together to write one of our own. You know a book is good when it inspires you. Each story, although short, felt complete, not always true with a short story. I easily invested in the characters, could relate to their situations, and cared about what happened to them.

Pretty Near Perfect: This is my first, but not my last novel by Jolene Perry. I loved this story. The writing was smart, fun, and entertaining. The story, for me, had just a taste of the movie Dan in Real Life, one of my all-time favorite movies. Although this is entirely different story, it still had the Dan charm I joy.

Six Days of Christmas: Great fun story. Kaylee Baldwin's story quickly drew me in also and had me rooting for Natalie. It was fun and very enjoyable. Watching Natalie grow, change and become aware of the feelings deep inside her made for a tender read. Kodos Kaylee!

Twist of Fate: 
I have read a couple books by Rachael Anderson before. I enjoy her style of writing, her rich humor, her tender words, and this story was no different. I LOVED Ty. The story was fresh and fun. I enjoyed the playful banter between the characters. I even enjoyed "the mother" :}} Great job-again-Rachael.

Over all I'd give All I Want five Christmas smiley faces . The book is a steal at just $2.99, a true bargain in these tough times!
Hurry and buy a copy before they sell out...;}}}  Okay, it's an eBook and they won't sell out, but hurry anyway! You won't regret it.

Pretty Near Perfect

by Jolene Perry

The last thing Norah needs is to be attracted to anyone – especially in her deceased fiancé's parents' home. Collin’s starting a new career, and has no business getting involved – especially while staying with his roommate’s family, who very kindly offered to take him in for the holidays. Unfortunately, you just don’t always pick the most convenient time and place to fall for someone.

Six Days of Christmas
by Kaylee Baldwin

When Natalie goes home with her best friend for Christmas, she expects plenty of quiet time to work on a winning ad so she can turn her dream internship into her dream job. Instead, she gets time-consuming Christmas festivities, a house full of children, and Jimmy, her best friend’s brother - someone who makes her question everything she’s always thought she wanted.

Twist of Fate
by Rachael Anderson

When a postcard meant for Kenzie winds up in Ty's mailbox, Ty's faced with a decision. Should he tell her that her fiancé is breaking up with her and let it ruin her favorite holiday, or should he do what he’s wanted to do since he met her - make a move and hope that he can win her over before she discovers there won’t be a wedding after all.

Author Jolene Perry

Jolene Perry is an enigmatic figure. She is most often seen behind her laptop, staring at the words flying onto the screen with reckless abandon.

She survived growing up in rural Alaska, driving like a lunatic, and her husband’s careers in the military, as a perpetual student, and an Alaska State Prosecutor. She also survived as a middle school math teacher using her degree of Political Science and French.

One day Jolene was playing her guitar (probably some-thing juvenile for her kids) when she wondered what it would be like to write a song for a rockstar, and her first book was born. (that book is shelved)

She now lives a very glamorous life as a stay at home mom, elbow deep in dirty dishes and peanut butter sandwiches. She doesn’t even attempt to keep up with the laundry because non-writing time is precious, and her family is sorta awesome.


Author Rachael Anderson

Rachael Anderson is the author of four contemporary romances: Divinely Designed, Luck of the Draw, Minor Adjustments, and The Reluctant Bachelorette. She's the mother of four, can't sing, doesn't dance, and despises tragedies. But she recently figured out how yeast works and can now make homemade bread, which she is really good at eating.


Author Kaylee Baldwin

I grew up in Mesa, Arizona, and graduated from Arizona State University

with a degree in English literature.
I currently live in southern Arizona with my husband, Jeremy, and our three children. When I am not writing, I enjoy reading, starting new craft projects, and spending time with my family.
