Book Description


They determine how we live, who we are, and what we want. Some choices are made for us.

Others we must make for ourselves.

Charlie Lexington is a living consequence of both. Everything about the feisty redhead represents a second chance—even her name. Though she was rescued at the age of five, her past is a lingering reminder of what she longs for most.

And the one thing she has spent a lifetime trying to find.

After a series of less-than-stellar choices, her Performing Arts Scholarship now hangs by a thread. Her sudden suspension has not only resulted in her father’s disappointment, but in the loss of her freedom as well.

She is forced to face the music: four weeks house arrest.

Briggs is the carefree, charming, yet all-too-mouthy fireman who is asked to keep an eye on the pretty little spitfire. He quickly learns, however, that his first assessment of her was off—she’s tougher than she looks. When her stubborn resolve pushes his sanity and intercepts his heart, his loyalties are put to the test.

Sometimes the hardest choice we make, is the one we must make for love...

** This is the second book in the Letting Go series, but it can be read as a standalone book **

Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This book was so great I read it nonstop- it's about God's healing power. But especially, it teaches patience and how we need to wait for God's timing in every aspect of life. If you really love someone, cherish every minute together. Grow in love, friendship, and honor relationships.

5.0 out of 5 stars amazing book May 30, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
"I used to pray for amnesia." - from this sentence on, I was hooked. I loved "All for Anna" and am so happy Briggs got his very own book! As for Charlie, I love the relatable aspect of her character. I hate spoilers so I don't want to talk about the plot. I do want to say this is a book to read when you can ignore the rest of the world until you are finished. I made the mistake of reading "All for Anna" at a conference and I stayed up way too late reading every night only to be groggy at my sessions. :)

Read "All for Anna" and then "All She Wanted" - they are amazing books.

5.0 out of 5 stars All She Wanted May 29, 2013
By Arzy
Format:Kindle Edition
I have had the pleasure of reading this book before publication. I fell in love with Briggs' character in All for Anna and was absolutely stoked that I got to read an entire book about his character. He is so real and lovable.
One of my favorite parts about the book is the witty banter between the characters. I am a sucker for that. Its just plain fun.
Deese again manages to pull off an intriguing, fast-paced book that is more than just entertainment. Her characters are real, developed, and carefully thought out. Deese is full of humor and brings life to the character's environment. She has mad writing skills.
She brings the right amount of tension to her novel, creating an experience that leaves you on the edge of your seat and rooting for Briggs. Charlie is a spitfire and has a lot of heart, she brings a painful beauty to the novel. I imagine that there will be quite a few people that might relate with her story.
It was nice to get to enjoy All for Anna's characters in this novel as well. They do not have huge parts but its always nice to see where character's progress and we get to catch a glimpse of Kai and Tori.
Well Done Deese, well done! You have managed to capture hearts again with your warmth, wit, and charm. I look forward to reading your future novels.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent love story! August 25, 2013
By marfy
Format:Kindle Edition
Loved this book!!! Excellent story-line and writing. I am a Nicholas Sparks' fan; have read most of his books; and have also seen the movies that were made from his books. I say this because Nicole Deese' s book, All She Wanted, is just as much an enjoyable read as Nicholas Sparks' books. It could easily be made into a motion picture movie.

5.0 out of 5 stars Make a sound track! July 6, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I don't believe I have read a book before that made me wish it had an accompanying sound track. This book was amazing! There were several moments in this book that made me feel like I was there in the room with Charlie and I wish I could hear her play the piano. The story and characters were believable and intriguing. What a beautiful message!

Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I absolutely loved this book, as well as the characters in it. I love how Nicole Deese takes the time to make you adore each one which in turn makes you actually care what happens to them in the story. I felt such a wide range of emotions while reading, which is what makes Nicole's books so captivating! I highly recommend it, I just know you'll love it like I did :)

More About the Author

Books have been a passion of mine for as long as I can remember. As a young girl, my favorite pastime was 'playing library'. This entailed loading every book I owned into my Radio Flyer wagon and trekking to the neighborhood park. Once there, I would carefully place each masterpiece onto a blanket. When my friends wanted to 'check-out' a book, I would first tell them the synopsis of each story and why I loved it.

Not much has changed since then.

I am obsessed with the art of what makes a great story, great. I can and have talked for hours about the fictional characters, scenarios and plots found within the pages of my favorite books. However, at the age of 30, I decided it was time to share my own world of make-believe.

I wrote my first novel, All for Anna, soon after that.

I have been a wife to my hunk-of-a husband, Tim, for nine years, and a mother to my two crazy boys (Preston, 7 and Lincoln, 4). I am a cherished daughter, an advice-giving big sister, and a very grateful friend. But first and foremost, I am a picture of redemption.

My life has been transformed by grace.

Though I no longer pull a red wagon, my stockpile of books has grown exponentially. I am never far from my next read. And yes, I still push them on my friends every chance I get (along with my commentary). Old habits die hard.

Thank you for reading a piece of my world, and for sharing in a piece of my heart.

'My flesh and my heart may fail, but God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever.'
Psalms 73:26 (NIV)
