All of You (Between Breaths #1) by Christina LeeBLURB
Avery has just met her hot upstairs neighbor. He's irresistible. Tattooed. And a virgin.
Nursing student Avery Michaels wants nothing to do with dating—she's perfectly happy single. Privy to too many of her mother's bad decisions and even worse taste in boyfriends, all Avery can handle is a string of uncomplicated hookups whenever the mood strikes.
When she meets smoking hot tattoo artist Bennett, she wants him—for just one night. But he won't accept a no-strings-attached arrangement. He lives by a straight-laced code of values based on his own troubled upbringing.
Bennett sees something special in Avery and he wants more from her. Way more. As Avery wrestles with her emotions for Bennett, danger and tragedy force them to open up to each other. And Avery must face the terrifying realization that she wants more from him, too.
So she needs to make a choice—let Bennett go or finally let him in.
All Of You is an emotional, sweet and spicy read. Right away, I could tell Avery was unhappy with how she behaved with men but her journey into finding herself was a slow, gradual process. Bennett was perfection, at least for Avery. His sensitive artist's soul eased her from her self-imposed emotional exile. The poetry was a nice touch and deepened the story, as did the tattoos and the secondary characters.
I'll be continuing on in the series... I think the next book is about one of my favorite secondary characters!
