Review Time: ALL THAT I AM by Rachel Brookes

Title: All That I Am 
Author: Rachel Brookes 
Release Date: May 19th, 2017 
Genre: Contemporary Romance 
A kickass home décor boutique – tick
A sassy mouth and absolutely no filter – tick
A wall so strong no man could ever tear it down - tick, tick, tick!

Or so I thought.

Until I meet Detective Ben Hunt, the owner of exquisite blue eyes, a god-like physique and a seductive smirk that makes me weak at the knees. He charges into my life like a force of nature. No matter how hard I try to keep the walls up around my heart, he’s made it his mission to shatter them. I have no chance of resisting him, but I would make sure I won this tug of war.

Which was what I wanted. 

Right? When did the idea of losing myself to him start to sound so good?

I wish Ben was the only battle I faced. There’s a reason this small town needs a good detective. One way or another I’m going to have to brace for impact because no wall I build can stop the new threat thundering toward Monroe. 

After all, secrets only stay a secret for so long around here.
I've been highly anticipating this release and dying to dive into the men of Monroe. And let me tell you...it was so worth the wait. These men of Monroe will be the death of me. I just want a sexy, hot, beautiful man, and detective from Monroe...is that too much to ask for? Sigh. 

Rachel always delivers such a good, fun read and she definitely delivered with this book. I found myself actually sighing when Ben Hunt would grace the page. He's such a dreamboat. 

"You don't look like a mistress. You look like a woman who would be the best kind of forever." 

Sasha has built a good life for herself in Monroe. She's got the best of friends and runs an awesome business. She's always lived in Monroe but she's never ever seen the face of Ben Hunt. And oh man, she would remember seeing that face. Even though she doesn't date ever, she definitely wants to get in his pants. 

These two quickly realize that they can't stay away from each other. Something electrifies when they are in the same room and Sasha doesn't know how to handle the emotion she feels around him. It's something she has never felt. 

"Ben was my calm, and I was his chaos." 

But when bad things start happening to Sasha and her business, Ben comes to the rescue but it seems he is keeping secrets from her. Secrets he wants to tell her but can't. These two quickly find out that living without each other may be worse than trying to not live without each other. But can Sasha give her heart to someone after holding onto it for so long? 

This book is so fun, so sexy, and so many feels. I found myself devouring this book page by page but never wanting it to end. These are always the best kinds of books.
