Hawke Vance will do whatever it takes to protect the family business, even if it means protecting it from his own father, a man who’s just gotten hitched in Vegas to wife number nine. Growing up seeing how much chaos wedded bliss creates, Hawke’s sworn never to fall into the matrimony trap. But to get the all-important controlling shares of the company, he does need a wife.
Being caught skinny dipping is not the way ballerina Amy Powell planned to start her vacation. When the hot biker who catches her turns out to be the owner of the house she’s staying in, she’s mortified. But embarrassment soon turns to confusion and a good dose of lust when Mr. Sex on a Stick offers her the money she needs to save her brother if she’ll agree to marry him and play pretend for two months.
Only this game of make-believe quickly starts feeling too real…
All I Want Is You is my first book by Candace Havens. It’s a short, sexy, and fun read. I enjoyed this story of finding love in the most unexpected places. It’s the perfect feel-good book after some heavy, angst-y reads. It will have you entertained from page one to the epilogue.
Due to Hawke Vance’s father just having married wife number 9, Hawke is scrambling to secure his family company from what he fears are the hands of another gold-digger. He’s worked hard the last few years to expand his company and make it a success. The past however, has taught him that his father’s taste in women is not the most reliable. And he fears this hasn’t changed this time around. He has one way to change this; he needs a wife.
This is where Amy Powell enters the picture. The beautiful ballerina is Hawke’s newest step-sister and roommate for the summer, nursing her insured ankle and knee back to health, before she goes back to Paris in the fall. This makes her the perfect fake wife.
What neither one of them has counted on however, is the insane attraction they share. Their fake relationship soon turns real, but can two people with trust-issues let go of their past and learn to trust? Or will the past rear its ugly head and ruin what they were building?
Hawke and Amy are perfect together, even if they don’t see it. I enjoyed their banter, sexual chemistry, and stubbornness. When these two got together sparks fly! Both of them had their issues and reasons to be weary of relationships. And one misunderstand just about cost them their future together—which made me want to shake both of them. But, I loved how as soon as they realized their mistakes, they found the strength and forgiveness to move on.
If you are in need of a quick read that will have you laugh out loud, swoon, and cheer for the characters, All I Want Is You is the one for you. I enjoyed this book and will pick up more of Miss Havens books whenever I’m need for a sexy read to cheer me up with its story line, loveable characters, and angst that will break your heart.
