Avery has just met her hot upstairs neighbor. He's irresistible. Tattooed. And a virgin.

Nursing student Avery Michaels wants nothing to do with dating—she's perfectly happy single. Privy to too many of her mother's bad decisions and even worse taste in boyfriends, all Avery can handle is a string of uncomplicated hookups whenever the mood strikes.
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.

So she needs to make a choice—let Bennett go or finally let him in.

All Of You is one of the best NA novels that I have read so far. I couldn't wait to get my grabby hands on it.  I mean, after reading the blurb I was sold. Who can resist a hottie, tattoo-artist, sweet hero who happens to be virgin?  Seriously, how many authors have done that before? I devoured the book in matter of hours. 

For the first time ever, I read a book where the roles are reversed, where the girl is the wild one and likes to hook up a lot with guys, and where the guy is super sweet and kind of innocent (not really), waiting for the right girl. Bennett and Avery are the opposite of each other but when an almost tragic incident brings them together, life plays a little trick on them. 

Avery wants nothing to do with relationships and commitment, while Bennett wants someone to share his life with; so different yet so perfect for each other.  The story doesn't have that insta-love that is so overdone with other NA novels.  The relationship between the main characters develops throughout the story and you really don't know what is going to happen next.  Bennett is really sweet, protective, honest, hot and handsome. He made me feel all kinds of butterflies in my stomach.  Avery hasn't had an easy life, she has a lot of trust issues and she doesn’t open up too easy to strangers, but in the end, she found her way throughout the book and came to terms about her future. 

I think the story was something new.  It gave me a different perspective about what being a “virgin” really means. This book has a lot of scenes that can be uncomfortable for readers that are not too open about other options that don’t include sexual intercourse. I loved every single part of the book! Avery and Bennett had a strong chemistry going on between them. 

Christina Lee did an excellent job at creating such good characters and an amazing story that readers can relate to. From the scenes to the plot to the characters, this book is one of the best NA books that I have read. I totally recommend it. 


  1. It is always good to hear about good NA books! I feel like they usually get a bad rap. :)

  2. This sounds fun! I've added it to my to-read list :-)
