Format: eBook
 

Kristen Ashley excels is at painting a sweet and spicy romance between her hot males and kooky females, be they werewolves, Rock Chicks, vampires, police officers or bikers, and this book did just that and I devoured every page of it. ~ Under the Covers

Sonia Arlington has always been a bit…weird, her sense of hearing, sight and smell are all heightened and she an uncanny way with animals, all this she must hide, afraid that the world will think she is a freak. She also has re-occurring dreams about her wolf and a handsome man; her dream man, and even though she knows he isn’t real she longs for him. Callum is the King of Werewolves and Sonia is his mate, even if she doesn’t know it she was born for him, they even have a Prophecy stating they are one of the three couples that must meet to save mankind from being subjugated, meaning there is more at stake then just their hearts…

What a relief!! Although I worship at the alter of Kristen Ashley, I really really didn’t like the first book in the series Until the Sun Falls from the Sky, Lucian, the hero rubbed me the wrong way, HOWEVER, I would just looove to rub myself all over Callum the sexy werewolf and hero of With Everything I Am. He was a classic Kristen Ashley hero, arrogant, high handed but leg splittingly sexy and gruffly sweet.

What I love about these books (and all Kristen Ashley books really) is that although there is a massive plot to enslave all humankind what it unashamedly focuses on is the romance going on between Sonia and Callum and doesn’t really go into the whole humans-as-slaves thing. For some people I know this may sound odd, but where Kristen Ashley excels is at painting a sweet and spicy romance between her hot males and kooky females, be they werewolves, Rock Chicks, vampires, police officers or bikers, and this book did just that and I devoured every page of it.

With Everything I Am was a really enjoyable read, with humour, romance and some fabulous characters to get stuck into, I really hope this ends up being more then a trilogy and some of the secondary characters get a chance at a book as well *hint hint Kristen, in case you are reading!*

About Kristen Ashley

Kristen Ashley was born in Gary, Indiana, USA. She nearly killed her mother and herself making it into the world, seeing as she had the umbilical cord wrapped around her neck (already attempting to accessorise and she hadn't taken her first breath!).

Kristen grew up in Brownsburg, Indiana but has lived in Denver, Colorado and the West Country of England. Thus she has been blessed to have friends and family around the globe. Her posse is loopy (to say the least) but loopy is good when you want to write.

Kristen was raised in a house with a large and multi-generational family. They lived on a very small farm in a small town in the heartland and existed amongst the strains of Glenn Miller, The Everly Brothers, REO Speedwagon and Whitesnake (and the wardrobes that matched).

Needless to say, growing up in a house full of music, clothes and love was a good way to grow up.

And as she keeps growing up, it keeps getting better.

Gosh, we all seem to be admitting our ages…and I hate that I am at the point in life when admitting my age is a “thing”…whodda thunk it? I was kind of hoping I would remain 21 forever. However, I have moved out of that New Adult stage of my life and am now strictly in the Contemporary Romance age zone of 28. I would prefer to be in an Urban Fantasy arena, but I don’t think I own enough black leather. However, I could probably squeeze into some PNR, I am fully prepared to give a horn job to my favourite demon, or suck on my sexy vamps…fangs and I am definitely up for some heavy petting with some fine looking shifters. Than again their’s always Sci Fi…I am fully prepared to do the right thing and help some poor alien race with more 6 packs than a supermarket repopulate their planet. Not that I am loose woman or anything.

Annnnnd I will stop myself there, before I start waxing lyrical about my love of historical romance and fantasy as well; no one needs to know about my elf fantasies. As you can tell, I adore and day dream about most romance genres, and my three big loves are 1) reading about romance 2) writing about romance and 3) talking about romance with my gals. Which, is why I love Under the Covers so much, I get all my bookish needs satisfied and don’t get judged when I talk about my favourite characters like they are real people. Which they are right?
