Review & Giveaway: All I Want Is You by Sherrill Bodine

SYNOPSIS:

SHE'S STEALING HIS HEART . . .

Vintage boutique owner Venus Smith is stunned to realize her newest acquisition comes with a larcenous legend. Stolen years ago, the antique mermaid brooch belongs to the Clayworth family. The right thing to do would be to return it, but that means facing Connor Clayworth O'Flynn, the sexy department store heir Venus has had an unrequited crush on since childhood-and the man who helped ruin her father.

ONE KISS AT A TIME

Connor knows that Venus has never forgiven him for what happened between their families. But business isn't personal, even though Venus's father's betrayal still cuts him like a knife. So when Venus proposes a deal-she'll return his family's brooch if he helps clear her father's name-he reluctantly agrees. As action-packed days turn into flirtatious fall nights, it isn't long before old memories resurface . . . and new desires ignite. Can two young lovers leave the past behind? Or must they first admit that all they've ever really wanted . . . is each other?

MY THOUGHTS:

As a woman, I can't help but get caught up in a good love story.  Filled with fiery passion and betrayal, All I Want Is You makes for an enjoyable reading experience.  The characters are easy to relate to and you can't help but cheer them on.  Sherrill paints romantic pictures with her words unlike anything I have ever seen before.  This would be the perfect book to read to get in the mood for Valentine's Day.
