All for This (Hanna’s story concludes)

All for This (Here and Now) (Volume 3)


Synopsis: **ALL FOR THIS is book three in the Here and Now series

I won’t go into any more detail about this book except to say that it was amazing. Again no matter what team you are on, the ending was perfect. All For This will leave you on the edge of your seat, needing to know what happened in those days leading up to the accident. Wondering who she will choose. This book will put you through the ringer, and take you on a roller coaster ride of emotions. It will take you on a journey with a few twist and turns along the way. There were people I thought I liked and ended up not being a big fan of in the end. Then there were people who surprised me and in the end I wanted to see happy. Lexi Ryan took us on one crazy ride filled with so many emotions. I felt it all, from the happy moments to the moments of anger and frustration. There was mystery, suspense, drama and plenty of angst. And above all a beautiful love story with an ending that will have you smiling. Lexi Ryan has a way of just sucking you in to her stories and you capturing you from the very first page. I have read all of her books and she just continues to blow me away each time. Her books just keep getting better and better. I am a forever fan and cannot wait for the ext one. Another amazing job.

Hanna was injured and has amnesia. She doesn’t remember the last 11 months or so of her life. She wakes up and is engaged to her crush since childhood Max Hollowell. He is HOT as hell and she never thought she could have him. Hanna has always had low self esteem, so when she wakes up to see she’s engaged, she can’t believe it. She soon finds out Nate Crane was the man she was having a secret summer affair with. She loves both Max and Nate and wants to understand why she chose to marry Max. She still doesn’t remember the last 5 days prior to her accident in All for This. Hanna tries to piece together the last 5 days to understand what pushed her towards an engagement with Max.

Thank you so much for my copy of All For This. I read it all in a few hours because I couldn’t put it down and now I want to go back and reread this series and stay with the characters that I have come to love over time.

I think this book did come up with some genuine surprises as to Hannah's accident and the final five days prior to that event. At the very least, I'll give Ryan credit for those revelations, for the writing in general, as well as the realism involved with Hannah's ongoing pregnancy and issues pertaining to it, e.g. how Nate and Max would factor into the raising of the kids. However, I imagine this would've been a much shorter novel if we weren't going back and forth between the sex scenes (again, like the last two novels - there were just too many of them and it was distracting and tedious rather than establishing the chemistry/connections between the characters) and the repetitious, sometimes very superfluous drama that occurred between the characters. It was a bit ridiculous after a time, and I mentally just said "You know what, I'm reading on to see what happens, but I honestly couldn't care because I know this is trying to milk my emotions and I'm just not buying into it." And that's a problem because if the events of the novel are just throwing conflict after conflict at you and it's not really plausible for the characters and realm of the novel - you run the risk of losing your reader. "All for This" almost lost me, but I kept reading on to see what exactly happened with Hannah up to the day of her accident and why/how she ended up with Max's ring on her finger.
