I’ve spent years turning my life around.

Burying my demons in one night stands and my work as the CEO of Morgan Securities.

My routine worked for me until I met her—a temptation dressed in red.

I walked away at first, but as luck would have it, she was hired as my company’s interior designer.

Soon she became an addiction I couldn’t escape.

What I didn’t know is she had a secret that would change everything.

One that turned into everything I ever wanted. 

But sometimes when life hands you lemons, they go sour.

No matter how hard I try to fight it, my old demons would come back to haunt me in the most unexpected ways.

Holly and my son are my salvation, and I want nothing more than to be all in with them.

No matter what.

            **** My Review ****

I have to say that this is my first book by Erica Marselas, but certainly won’t be the last. I finished the book in one sitting, and I really want to write so many things, yet I cannot find the right words. Captivating, all-consuming, insanely hot and way unpredictable…a stunning story that left me speechless and wanting for more.

Liam was the perfect hero, burdened by his own demons, broken in some ways, the dark knight, wicked and attractive at the same time, with a heart bigger than his ego and with enough love and courage to be able to match the most famous heroes of world fiction. He on the abyss, and she his hand for salvation.

Holly, the gentle and strong Red, brave enough to reach for what she wants and fight for her happiness no matter what.

He and she together, a living fire that burns instantly from the first moment. With an incredible connection, a raging passion, they slowly write the pages of their sweet love story. A story where the past and the present are intertwined, darkness and light, pain and hope for a better future.

Betrayals and secrets surround both of them. Selfishness that rises and tries to cover everything else, and selflessness that goes beyond the imaginable. Will they sink or will they rise above and thrive after all the secrets are revealed? Will love be enough to heal wounds, bury the past, and overcome all that madness?

This is more than a simple love story, much more than a second opportunity romance… It traverses topics such as love, family, loyalty, deceptions, betrayal, envy….so many tiny pieces, so skillfully intertwined that make this book absolutely amazing. To say that this author has a gift with words is simply an understatement. When I started reading the first chapters, I thought that this was one more sweet, slow paced, and second opportunity romance…one among so many others, no angst, no drama…. I honestly didn’t see the thunderbolt coming. I literally had to re-read that part and I was like…Holy Smokes, really????

Definitely, All in is one of the best stories I have read this year, so beautifully written, with great insights, powerful exchanges and seamless dual narrative. I honestly didn’t want it to end, and simply cannot find the suitable words to recommend this book highly enough.

**** About the Author****

USA TODAY Bestselling Author Erica Marselas writes a little bit of everything. From sweet stalkers, to forbidden love, to rom comes, to young adult because she believes no love story is created equal and every story deserves to be told. Even the fictional ones. As long as she can dream it, she’ll write it.

When Erica isn’t writing she’s a wife, a mother of four little ones residing in Maryland.
Dt. Dr. Pepper is her drink of choice, but tequila keeps her sane. She’s a sucker for Christmas movies and serial killer documentaries.
