I loved the way Chance loved El most of all. No matter what demons you have in your past true love will get you through it.
First there is Ella. She is as gentle as her name implies. She is just looking for a place to set her "roots". She has lost everyone in her family. By moving to Detroit, she hopes to be close to her two best friends and start a new life full of hope and love.
Reality quickly sets in when she arrives early from a trip and finds her douchebag boyfriend in bed with a chick. I am so glad she throws his ass out of the apartment.
Then she literally runs into Chance. The name says it all... yes he is gorgeous so we are all cheering for her to take a "chance" with him. I know, I could not pass it up. But this man is different. He is a gentleman, quiet, loving, caring, and most of all, willing to stand up and defend her from "douchebag".
This love affair is scorching hot. Steamy scenes are just the beginning. The bed sheets are on fire! And this man is a romantic at heart.
He also has secrets that he will not share. Ella can tell he has been deeply hurt and hopes he will eventually share all with her.
As the plot thickens and attempts are made to kill Ella all bets are off. Who is doing this? "Douchebag"? Someone else? Why?
I hope you enjoy this novel as much as I did. I have singing the praises of N.B. Baker's debut novel for days. If you get a chance, check out the video trailer on her facebook page. It is a gem! [...]
I'm always excited when I get an invite to participate in these virtual tours. I've gotten to read some amazing books by some equally amazing authors. Plus the people who put these tours on are always so professional and courteous to everyone.
"Everything" introduces us to Ella Stone. Just coming back from a trip to Wyoming, she attempts to call her boyfriend Hunter to find out why he hadn't picked her up at the airport. Trying to still cope with the death of her beloved grandparents, settling their estate and then finding out that there is oil on the land, she has a lot on her plate. Taking a cab to her Detroit apartment, she is shocked when she sees that Hunter has created the perfect romantic evening.
Following the rose petals and romantic music to the bedroom, she isn't prepared for what she finds. Hunter is having sex with another woman. Devastated, confused, angry and broken-hearted, she finds comfort in her best friends.
Sarah and Justin let her move into their spare room above garage. With her best friends to help her get back on her feet, Ella (El) starts to rebuild her life. Her and Sarah co-own a book store, Book Junkie, that will also help keep her mind occupied.
It's during a trip to the grocery store that she has the most unusual encounter that she could ever expect. While reading her shopping list and not paying any attention to her surroundings, she runs right smack into the back of the most breathtaking man she has ever laid eyes upon.
Chance St. John is tall, tanned, and drop dead gorgeous. When he finally introduces himself to her, his voice sends chills down her spine. It's when he shakes her hand, she fills a zing that makes her quiver inside. But it's the star fruit in his hand that draws in a conversation. After a brief conversation, he completely disappears like magic.
It's later at a club when Ella, Sarah and Justin are out having a good time, things start to spin out of control. Ella is on her way to the bathroom when she again bumps into Chance. Excited he's there, she an Sarah rush off in a whirl of amazement.
While Sarah and Justin are engaging in a slow dance, Ella heads back to their table. Next thing she knows, Hunter has her by the arm and forcing her out the door. Slamming her against the wall, he starts to throw threats around about her leaving him. He slams her so hard against the wall that she knows there's going to a knot and soreness in the morning. It's before he can land his fist against her face, Hunter all of a sudden is on the ground. What in the hell is going on with Hunter? Is he high on drugs?
When she opens her eyes, she finally realizes that she is now in the arms of Chance St. John. He has beat the crap out of Hunter and has become her knight in shining armour. Taking her back to her house, Ella invites he up for a drink and conversation. Completely amazed that this beautiful man is sitting on her couch, they start to do the awkward dance of flirting.
Things start to take off for Chance and Ella pretty fast from this point on. It's the "zing" that has pulled these two lost souls together. Finding comfort and love in one another has brough Ella to a new point in her life that she has never been too.
Chance is the dream guy that she has always wanted. He's caring, romantic, sexy as hell and the best lover that she has ever had. There's only one problem with Chance. he's hiding a deep dark secret that he's not willing to share. At times he seems to drift off into this dark dream like state, only to snap out of if just as fast. He has nightmares that he's trying to help someone, but when Ella tries to talk to him about it, he goes all quiet.
It's not until Ella starts having issues with an author that is due for a book signing, that things start to heat up in this story. Then Ella finds herself being the victim and stalked by some unknown person who is out to do her some severe physical harm. Questions start to surface about Chance and his past. Is all the problems Ella is having due to this? Will Ella and Chance be able to survive the problems that are starting to cause a rift in their relationship? Will their love for one another be strong enough to overcome all these obstacles?
I found "Everything" to be a pretty fast read. The book moves quickly though the relationships of Ella and Chance. You can't help yourself to be drawn into their world. They both are such engaging people who you feel like you want them as friends.
Now this book does have some graphic sex scenes in it, but it's nothing that I would really call erotic. To me it was just mind-blowing sex that wasn't embarrassing to read. It was hot and steamy, but nothing that I would categorize as erotic.
Not wanting to give away the ending, I can hint around that the author does throw you a curve ball that I wasn't suspecting. It was a nice little twist to such a great and loving story.
I found it highly repetitive and it didn't end, just hungs in the air and doesn't continue.
There were no breaks to signify the passage of time, events just flowed into one another and sometimes not even in the correct sequence and I get that the title of the book was Everything but the constant use of the term was quite frankly, a little pedestrian. I didn't dislike the STORY, I just found it overly predictable and a little immature.
For instance, she was in a car accident that was supposedly so traumatic, yet they released her the very day she regained conscientiousness with almost no observation time and she WALKED out of the hospital. What the heck kind of hospital is that.
Most of the issues I had could be cleared up with further editing and and ending that actually brings closure to the story. There are many unresolved points in the story-line, telling me that its over isn't as good as SHOWING the resolution, however as far as debut books go.... It was pretty good.
Ella and Chance have both had to deal with heartache. Once they meet they have that immediate connection. Although Chance keeps his passed closed off Ella has actually let him in. But the past can’t always stay hidden as much as one tries, will this end up hurting Ella or will they be able to work through this? The sex scenes are so damn HOT it was so mind blowing even when they are just dreams (makes you need to take a cold shower afterward..Lol) But seriously it is CALIENTE!! Chance is one Hot Sexy car aficionado.
Ella has best friends who are her supporters and help her as much as they can. They are wonderful Sarah and Justin are awesome.
I just want more! Definitely more of CHANCE Please <3
