Book Review: All of You by Christina Lee

It is not often you find a book where the guy is the virgin and the girl is the player, and I have to say it is a very refreshing change!

Avery Michaels does not do boyfriends or relationships. She much prefers a one night stand or calling her "buddy" Rob for a quickie. When she spots a gorgeous guy at a frat party, she sets in for the kill. But for once, the guy doesn't take the bait. Bennett Reynolds knows a mean eater when he sees one and Avery is most definitely one. So he flat out ignores her advances. He is a virgin not because he is waiting for marriage, just waiting for love.

Imagine both their surprise when they find out the next day that they live in the same apartment building. Despite their differences, they are still drawn to each other and their chemistry is palpable. A scary night had Avery leaning on Bennett for comfort and she struggles with that since she makes a point to never need anyone. Though they try to fight it for a while, inevitably they want to spend more time together.

Make no mistake, just because Bennett is a virgin doesn't mean there isn't any hotness in this book. He happens to have a very skilled mouth and fingers. The sexual tension between them is crazy hot and it makes their eventual coming together that much better. I really enjoyed the role reversal in this book and loved the sweet guy who knows that he wants to wait for someone special. And while Avery certainly has her issues to work through, I loved that she was respectful of Bennett's choice and never tried to pressure him. I highly recommend this read!

But I chose to disappear behind the trunk of the tree instead. I caught my breath and had a good talk with myself about burying my feelings for Bennett once and for all. Focusing on school, and Adam, and my career. It was quiet and dark, like I was in my own little secluded world. Until the rain came down in hard sheets and drenched me. I pushed away from the tree to make a run for the tent.

All at once I saw a blur of red as I was forced against the tree trunk, the bark digging into my sweater. Bennett’s soaked hair swung against my forehead, his hands gripped my face, and his mouth sealed over mine, fusing our wet lips and tongues together.

I scraped my fingertips up his chest to his hairline and felt him tremble against me. My heart thudded against my rib cage as Bennett’s mouth devoured me—like he was pouring all of his frustration into me.

We were sopping wet, our clothes clinging to us, and the rain wasn’t letting up anytime soon.

I swept my tongue across his lips and the hottest fucking growl erupted from his mouth. He flattened his body against mine, crushing me with the weight of his passion.

“Is this how you like it?” he mumbled, but my mind couldn’t register what he was asking. It had turned into a foggy haze and I couldn’t even remember the letters of the alphabet at that point.

Bennett was entirely lips and fingers and raw passion and I felt his arousal pulsing against my stomach. His hands were rough and they rushed down my body to palm my ass. He lifted me off the ground, and my legs gripped his waist.

“Tell me you want this.” He slid down to the grass with me straddling him, and all I could do was moan into his lips. It was as if all the pleasure receptors in my brain had expanded and then shot rapidly into my core, setting me on fire.

When she meets smoking hot tattoo artist Bennett, she wants him—for just one night. But he won't accept a no-strings-attached arrangement. He lives by a straight-laced code of values based on his own troubled upbringing.

Bennett sees something special in Avery and he wants more from her. Way more. As Avery wrestles with her emotions for Bennett, danger and tragedy force them to open up to each other. And Avery must face the terrifying realization that she wants more from him, too.
