ARC REVIEW : All or Nothing (Together #3) by Felice Stevens
A past he couldn’t forget
Adam Barton is living his dream of working as a firefighter in his small Texas town, but a tragedy from his youth continues to haunt him. He decides New York City is the perfect place to start a new life and joins the FDNY, living and loving his own way—no strings and nothing personal. Until he catches sight of Rico Estevez, the sexy chef with the mysterious smile who rocks his world. After one explosive night together, Adam craves another….And then another. The more he and Rico are together, the more Adam wants him.
A future he never imagined
Rico Estevez is living a lie. For years he’s hidden his sexuality, afraid to hurt the career of his politically ambitious father. He’s the perfect American―the best schools, top of his class and most importantly, to his father, a successful businessman. Who needs a boyfriend when sex is so easy to find? Starting a torrid love affair with Adam Barton isn’t a problem; neither one is looking toward forever. But Rico’s father is about to get the chance of a lifetime and Rico feels forced to play by his rules.
Rules are made to be broken
Adam proves more unforgettable than Rico ever imagines, but he gives in to family pressures above personal desire. When a fire reunites them, both men discover their passion for each other hasn’t died; rather it’s stronger than ever. Want turns to need and something more dangerous to their hearts—love. Adam and Rico know if they want to have it all, they can let no one and nothing stand in their way of a life together.
All or Nothing by Felice Stevens
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Once in a while, when you read a book, and you can't stop your epigastrium from aching, and wanted to dive into it and solving the problem, and makes everything's right. This book, a story about Adam and Rico did that to me.
Secrets can be a real burden in our life of we keep it to ourselves and not letting it out and solved.
Adam and Rico kept their own secrets for so long, and when they're met each other, and falling in love, those secrets holding them back to be happy.
There's something about Felice's books that keep me pestering her from the start. It always made me happy, and beaming in the beginning, ripped my heart and made me cry, cursed her for making the boys suffer, then in the end, made me happy again and let the boys stay in my heart for a long time.
Adam and Rico are definitely my new favourite couple. And since what they had been though together, it's only fair that they need their HEA, right?
So far, Felice never failed to satisfy my need of a good story and a perfect ending. And Adam and Rico deserved that. And they got it!
I have to read again after this real slow, because I missed them already.
*I voluntarily read the ARC, no high rating required in my review.*
