When the hot biker who catches her turns out to be the owner of the house she’s staying in, she’s mortified.

Only this game of make-believe quickly starts feeling too real…

All I want is You is my first book from this author despite featuring her on the blog previously.   However when I read the blurb, I knew I had to squeeze this book into already busy packed date as  I wanted to know the story of Amy and Hawke .

What would happen when a tattooed biker  meets a ballerina …..

Out of all the scenarios I have reader over the years. I don’t think I have come across this scenario. Yes I have read some biker books featuring a heroine  that is a  dancer but not a ballerina.  And this didn’t disappoint.

A fast quick novel that packs quickly a punch, It was hard not fall for Hawke and Amy two total opposites who are thrown together because of their parents marriage and forced to adapt with some surprising results.

Hawke may be a grumpy tattoo biker who is trying to keep everything together and doesn’t have time for relationships. His dad is doing  plenty for his family and Hawke’s life revolves around him. He doesn’t know anything else .  His dad is up to wife nine and seeing plenty of chaos as result of his dad’s decisions. Hawke has thrown himself into company and making sure that  is everyone else  is alright.

Wedding Bliss is never in his future. Until finds Amy in the pool and thinks that he got another problem on his hands. Little does he know how wrong he is going to be  as Amy isn’t exactly what he expects.

Amy is there to recover, she got her own life in Paris.  She doesn’t expect to find that  she will playing make believe with Hawke. He hot but he isn’t her type or is he ?

All I want is You maybe written in the vain of the classic category romances. But this a very modern romance and I loved the story of Amy and Hawke. It was fun, wild and totally a little cheesy. But I enjoyed this sort of a story and Havens didn’t disappoint.
