All She Wanted (Letting Go #2)

All She Wanted (Letting Go #2)

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…


I love Ms. Deese's writing style!  This is the first book I've read by her and I'll be looking for more.  It's the second book in this series but it easily stands alone.  I got sucked into this story where I laughed and cried. The story of Charlie is fun and entertaining and deeper as you learn where she's been and the things that have brought her to this point.  It pulls raw emotions and struggles which many can relate to.  I liked the different points of view throughout the story and the perspective it gives the reader.  I highly recommend this book!

4.5/5 stars
