Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

In this improbable contemporary romance, 10th in the Grayson Friends series, beautiful and successful resort event director Skylar Dupree gets tired of yearning for handsome, stoic security director Rio Sanchez and decides it's time to be more proactive. Dressing provocatively and trying to entice Rio with delicious food has little effect, however, since Rio has no interest in a relationship. Despite his obvious lack of interest, Skylar continues to throw herself at him, refusing to take no for an answer. As Rio slowly begins to cave to his colleague's unceasing efforts, Skylar's safety is threatened by an unknown source. When Rio realizes just how much danger Skylar is in, he begins to reevaluate what she really means to him. There's no appeal in the too-perfect cast of talented and rich players, nor in Skylar's over-the-top infatuation and aggressive behavior, which makes Rio's love for her look like Stockholm syndrome. Agent: Elaine Koster, Elaine Koster Agency. (Nov.)

Review

"Skylar may intrigue him, but he knows that when she learns his history, she'll run as fast as she can. However, Skylar is made of stronger stuff. Against the backdrop of an auction to benefit Mrs. Grayson's music school, Rio realizes that he not only wants to protect Skylar, but love her as well. Threats to her life, made by an enemy from Blade and Rio's past, motivate him to keep her with him forever." Sensuality: HOT with 4 and a half stars~ Reviewed By: Jacqui McGugins-RT Book Reviews

"This is a delicious romance about two equally stubborn individuals, one determined to have a relationship, one just as determined not to. Evil intent frames the story, adding suspense to the emotional turmoil. This mixes into a romantic tangle between these two smart proponents of self-defense and getting-the-job-done types." Robin Lee-Romance Reviews Today

"If ever a pair were made for each other, it's Skylar and Rio. Skylar is out to prove that she has made good choices for her life, yet she's tired of being single. So she's ready to take a few chances, to be a bit bold and brazen- everything Rio is not-to win her man. Rio, for all his seriousness and quiet strength, exudes sexiness with a touch of loneliness, and readers have been wanting to see him matched up for some time. In fact, he meets his match in Skylar, resisting her until he can resist no more. ALL THAT I DESIRE is a smart, romantic, sizzling, and fun read."- Fresh Fiction

"Ray's ALL THAT I DESIRE gives great closure to a wonderful series but I'm still sad to see it end.  The characters were all so alive and real even with the affluent background almost all of them came from.  There was a richness to their families, friendships and get togethers that I just wanted to join them wherever they were - whether at the Castle, the various restaurants or resorts or one of their homes. Jo-Romance Junkies Reviewer ~4 stars

I was very excited for the release of this book. It was bittersweet because this is the story we were waiting for and Mrs. Ray isn't here to enjoy it with us physically. I'm sure she is looking down and smiling!!! She outdid herself with this one. Rio and Skylar's story was a beautiful end to an awesome series. Mrs. Ray is a profound writer!! I laughed, cried and I wanted to fight along with The family!!! Mrs. Ray will be greatly missed. This is an amazing story you won't be disappointed.

RIP Francis Ray. As with all the others in this series it was a great read. I cried tears of happiness at the end. So happy that Rio found love with his own Little Warrior.

I always like the Grayson family and friends books. And this one was no different. But it was missing passion. I was saying to myself come on do it and get it over with. Just kiss her, will you. Still a very good read.

Nothing can stop a woman like Skylar Dupree once she makes up her mind. Defying her family and leaving law school, she's landed her dream job as an event director at the prestigious Navarone Resorts in Arizona. It's all that Skylar's ever wanted--until she sees Rio Sanchez, the resort owner's bodyguard. He's the hottest, sexiest, most striking man she's ever met.

SOMETIMES IT'S EVEN BETTER...

When Skylar starts planning a huge charity auction at the resort, it's Rio's job to keep an eye on the prized art she collects from donors. He's not blind to Skylar's beauty, brains, and other charms--but Rio is nothing if not professional, and he refuses to make a move. It's enough to drive Skylar crazy...with desire. But when a mysterious stranger enters the picture--and puts Skylar's life in danger--Rio has no choice but to protect her...and never let her go.

I absolutely love All That I Desire by Francis Ray. Skylar being so secure in going after what she wants will strike a chord with women of any background while Rio worms his way into our hearts by not realizing that his childhood is no fault of his own. The close-knit circle of friends depicted throughout this story is realistic, fun and leave you eager to read the rest of the titles in the Grayson Friends Series, so you can revisit them - and find out what happens with their love lives. While the friendship between the men in this story (Shane,Blade,Rio) is one of the primary focuses of this series and I did enjoy their camaraderie. What I really enjoyed about this book is seeing the women find the inner strength to tackle whatever life throws at them while falling in love, building friendships and running businesses.
