A shocking tale of romance and deception, N.B. Baker’s Everything is an impressive debut that proves no secret is ever really buried.
Ella Stone is struggling to pick up the pieces of her life. Abandoned by her parents when she was an infant, both of the grandparents who raised her are now gone. Facing her future for the first time, Ella decides to move to Detroit in order to be near her two best friends.
After a misguided relationship with a man she finds in bed with another woman, Ella begins doubting her life-changing move. That is, until she meets Chance St. John. When Chance fends off a brutal attack, Chance and Ella share an instant connection.
As the two get to know each other, their passionate exploits both in and out of the bedroom make way for a deeper connection for which neither one was quite prepared. But despite their increasing closeness, Ella can’t shake the feeling that Chance is hiding something from her. His frequent nightmares and skittish responses point to a secret in his past that haunts him still.
While Ella attempts to uncover Chance’s mysterious past, her own life takes a turn for the strange. As Everything builds to its explosive climax, Ella must discover the truth before Chance’s dark past consumes them both.
REVIEWThis book will blow your socks off! It is a love story, with a big dose of mystery, suspense and thrilling sexy scenes.
First there is Ella. She is as gentle as her name implies. She is just looking for a place to set her "roots". She has lost everyone in her family. By moving to Detroit, she hopes to be close to her two best friends and start a new life full of hope and love.
Reality quickly sets in when she arrives early from a trip and finds her douchebag boyfriend in bed with a chick. I am so glad she throws his ass out of the apartment.
Then she literally runs into Chance. The name says it all... yes he is gorgeous so we are all cheering for her to take a "chance" with him. I know, I could not pass it up. But this man is different. He is a gentleman, quiet, loving, caring, and most of all, willing to stand up and defend her from "douchebag".
This love affair is scorching hot. Steamy scenes are just the beginning. The bed sheets are on fire! And this man is a romantic at heart.
He also has secrets that he will not share. Ella can tell he has been deeply hurt and hopes he will eventually share all with her.
As the plot thickens and attempts are made to kill Ella all bets are off. Who is doing this? "Douchebag"? Someone else? Why?
I hope you enjoy this novel as much as I did. I have singing the praises of N.B. Baker's debut novel for days.
