Book Review: Everything I Need
Two people not looking for anything more.Two people whose past is tied together in more ways than they could ever imagine.
Dominic has lived his whole life looking for a time when he could just be himself. Not having to live up to his family’s expectations. But when your family has ties to the Mafia, you don’t always get what you want. Till he meets a lone girl who sparks an obsession. It would start him down a path of danger that even he couldn’t see coming. She would be everything he needed.
Alice is just trying to get through life. A life that hasn’t always been easy. Her past leads her to the cautious friendships that she has built around her, and she’s not interested in anything more. Till she meets a man who makes her think that true love, the kind she dreams of, is actually real. He would become everything she would need.
When the twisted webs of deceit from their pasts come storming into their lives, will they be strong enough to hold on? Or will the past destroy everything they have found?
This is the third book I have read by this author. I enjoyed it. Although, I have to admit that this one took me longer to get into the story in the beginning. It was a slower burn romance for me. It was not until about a third of the way into the story that I really felt the chemistry between Dominic and Alice. Part of this also had to do with the fact that the chapters were short and thus the story seemed a bit rushed as well.
However, this is a different story when I hit the halfway point of the story. The chemistry that Dominic and Alice shared was very steamy. Also, the storyline picked up as well and grew stronger. It for sure made up for the slower beginning.
