A broken woman . . .
Crystal learned long ago that love brings only pain. Feeling nothing at all is far better than being hurt again. She guards her wounded heart behind a hard exterior, and carries within her a deep mistrust of men who, in her experience, have only ever used and taken.
A man in need of help . . .
Then Gabriel Dalton walks into her life. Despite the terrible darkness of his past, there’s an undeniable goodness about him. And even though she knows the cost, Crystal finds herself drawn to Gabriel. His quiet strength is wearing down her defenses and his gentle patience is causing her to question everything she thought she knew.
Only love can mend a shattered heart . . .
Crystal and Gabriel never imagined that the world that had stolen everything from them would bring them a deep love like this. Except fate will only take them so far and now the choice is theirs: Harden their hearts once again or find the courage to shed their painful pasts.
Roxie and Jen’s Review
“What must it feel like to process such a gift? To be able to reveal beauty in your own hands?”
If ever a quote was fitting for a Mia Sheridan book, this is it. She knows how to create beauty with her phenomenal storytelling ability, the way she creates these flawed characters, her written words, the spell she puts you under as you read. There’s just something about her writing that is magical.
“…Writers…painters…you start out with a vague vision, and the details emerge through the process. The more you do it, the more you trust your own hands to lead you in the right direction.”
Mia certainly knows how to trust her heart and her mind because each word, each action is strung together like a strand of pearls.
“I don’t create beauty… I just reveal what’s already there.”
That you do, Mia Sheridan.
If you’re new to Mia, you are about to venture into a love story so incredibly beautiful, you’ll be mesmerized. If you’re already a Mia fan, this book will fill your heart with love, yet crack it open at the same time. It’s what we’ve come to expect from her novels and Most of All You is breathtaking and had moved into one of our top favorites of hers. This story is truly incredible filled with so much, feelings galore.
Sometimes we feel like we can’t do justice to a book with our reviews. This is that book. How do you even begin to talk about such perfection and beauty that this book was?
Crystal and Gabriel love story is one that we will never forget. It’s imprinted in our hearts. Two souls looking for love, they are so different. Painful paths of life made them survivors, fighting or maybe just surviving, till they meet.
This is not just a love story, it’s a story of strength and overcoming. It’s a story of healing.
It’s a story of conquering.
Mia Sheridan once again took us on heartbreaking journey of love that’s complicated yet so rewarding.
After Archers Voice and Kyland, Most of All You is in our top Mia Sheridan reads and top 2017 read for us. Having highlighted most of the book, we sat back and reflected. Reflected on life, on everything. Mia does that to us often. She gives us stories that make us think, makes us want to make a change for the better.
