Release Day Review: Nothing But It All by Adriana Locke

From USA Today bestselling author Adriana Locke comes a warm and romantic novel about a marriage in trouble, two conspiring kids, and the meaning of long-lasting love.

After twenty years, the cracks in Lauren Reed’s marriage are showing. She and her husband, Jack, feel more like roommates than a loving couple. What they have in common are two wonderful teenagers, Michael and Maddie, and the same wistful When did it all go wrong? Now that Lauren’s decided to get on with her life—alone—divorce is inevitable.

Not to the kids. They aren’t giving up so easily.

Michael and Maddie have conspired with their grandfather to bring everyone together for a vacation in the family’s favorite summer getaway, a rustic lakeside cabin in Story Brook, Ohio. Awkward? Yep. A little deceptive? Sure. But as far as traps go, Lauren and Jack agree—the meddlers couldn’t have set one that was more scenic or filled with so many bittersweet memories.

This trip is going to be life-changing for the whole family. Fourteen days of hope, heartbreak, and unexpected possibilities—like maybe falling in love all over again.

**ARC provided in exchange for an honest review**

Nothing But It All by Adriana Locke is a sweet second-chance love story about Jack and Lauren, a married couple trying to rekindle their spark. Alongside the romance, the book brings in some great parenting moments.

Jack and Lauren are characters you'll easily connect with in this easy-to-read, feel-good contemporary romance. The family dynamics and the chemistry between characters make the story even more enjoyable.

“I love you,” I say, tears falling freely. “But I feel so broken. I can’t break myself to build you anymore.”

While the overall vibe is light and fun, the story hits you in the feels towards the end, adding a nice emotional touch. Jack and Lauren owning up to their mistakes adds a realness that makes them relatable.

I really enjoyed how the characters grew, and the storyline kept me hooked. Here's hoping Adriana Locke brings us more stories from this world. If you're into heartwarming second-chance romances with a good dose of humor, I'd definitely recommend giving this one a read.
