The characters develop at a comfortable pace, and the story has some great twists.
It's a nice fresh look at some universal themes of good versus evil, and "will love prevail".
This is a great read for summer--or anytime!
I read it and have passed it onto my daughter to read next. I know she will also thoroughly enjoy.
I highly recommend this book!!!
(I don't want to give away the story line, so I didn't write a review of the book)
In Martha’s Vineyard there are two different groups of people, the locals and the stays. Lane has always despised the stays, he works hard to achieve his dreams while the stays just get what they want without even blinking their eyes. But when he meets Ashley she seems different than most of them. Will their summer romance just be that a summer romance or will it survive against all odds?
All In was a very pleasant book to read. The characters were really interesting. Ashley is the typical good-girl with dreams her parents would never agree with. But she learns to stand up for herself after she meets Lane. Lane is the first guy in his family ever to go to college, to top it off he’s accepted to Harvard! When there worlds collide they could have never accepted how much they would influence each other’s life’s. The chemistry between them is as obvious as day and night but they take the time to really get to know each other, which I really appreciated. Their romance feels innocent but deep-seated at the same time.
The writing flowed well and it kept my attention throughout the entire book. The settings of this book made me want to go on holiday!
Overall this book is a cute beach/summer read. All In is perfect for anyone who is looking for a fun, light read.
The story's written from the point of view of both a male and female protagonist, opening up with Lane. At first, I wasn't sure about his narration-the voice came out to me as that of a girl-but I started to feel his masculinity as the pages went by. Ashley, on the other hand, didn't really pull me in. Not that her character wasn't great, just that Lane stood out stronger to me. Both characters hailed from two completely different backgrounds that had me thinking star-crossed lovers. But what I liked about their relationship is how much Lane got Ashley thinking more for herself and stopped being so afraid of living her life and standing up for what she believed in. The overall concept of their situation was far from new, but it's always nice to read about relationships getting challenged by outside issues, not necessarily by a love triangle, but others who refuse to see the two together. The biggest test of all involving that one bet that basically made everyone stop in shock. I felt that such a factor added major interest to the story and I wanted to see how it Ashley and Lane would overcome that.
Of course, there were other characters and other aspects involved. There's a villain, a really assholic one I might add. There's Ashley's brother who was very supportive of her seeing Lane and added to the more humorous side of the novel, but besides being a carefree individual, I found him to at times caus problems for Lane and I just couldn't understand why Lane would even allow himself to get caught up. I also liked when both the main characters would share something serious and emotional with each other, like Ashley dealing with the loss of someone close to her heart, and Lane coping with his grandfather's health issues, as well as his family's financial status. In those scenes, it felt real and got me to open my heart to sympathize with the characters.
Overall, All In was fast paced, delightfully written, a breezy summer tale with a dramatic climax, and it was definitely interesting. This is a sweet story, and if you like contemporary new adult and quick romance novels, then All In is for you.
