A broken woman . . .

Crystal learned long ago that love brings only pain. Feeling nothing at all is far better than being hurt again. She guards her wounded heart behind a hard exterior, and carries within her a deep mistrust of men who, in her experience, have only ever used and taken.

A man in need of help . . .

Then Gabriel Dalton walks into her life. Despite the terrible darkness of his past, there’s an undeniable goodness about him. And even though she knows the cost, Crystal finds herself drawn to Gabriel. His quiet strength is wearing down her defenses and his gentle patience is causing her to question everything she thought she knew.

Only love can mend a shattered heart . . .

Crystal and Gabriel never imagined that the world that had stolen everything from them would bring them a deep love like this. Except fate will only take them so far and now the choice is theirs: Harden their hearts once again or find the courage to shed their painful pasts.

"I don't create beauty, I just reveal what's already there."

I am always excited when I can get my hands on a book by Mia Sheridan. She is one of my favorite authors, and always delivers an emotional and original story. Most of All You was a beautiful, heartbreaking and emotional contemporary romance about two characters that have been through so much in their past. The prologue was so sad and I got teary-eyed while reading it. The blurb doesn't really go into a lot, so I don't want to say too much and spoil the story. Most of All You is about Gabriel and Crystal, two characters who are just existing instead of living, they meet in a very unconventional way. 

"I've always pretended I was made of stone, but the truth is, I feel more like I was formed from sand, as if I might crumble at any second."

I was intrigued, but wasn't pulled in from the start. The story developed and it became a much powerful story. Crystal, who carries a deep mistrust of men, finds herself in a situation where she is depended on Gabriel. I loved how open and pure Gabriel was regardless of all the things he'd been through. The way he handled Crystal was very beautiful and warmed my heart so much. Crystal definitely doesn't make it easy on him, but Gabriel is someone who doesn't give up and sees the beauty and good in everything. I loved that the author took her time to develop their relationship. It wasn't rushed and she gave the characters the opportunity to heal themselves. Falling in love doesn't mean that your broken/wounded heart is automatically mended or healed. You have to love yourself before you can really start a healthy relationship. I really enjoyed this book and felt a deep connection between the characters. I recommend this book to any romance reader.
