Entering the kitchen, I find Chris leaning on the marble countertop by the coffeepot, shirtless and in his pajama bottoms, the long strands of his blond hair a wild, sexy mess I’m pretty sure I created last night.

He glances up from the paper he’s reading, then picks up his coffee cup. “Morning, Ms. McMillan.”

“Morning, Mr. Merit,” I reply, grinning as I join him.

He offers me his coffee cup and I happily accept it, taking a drink of the perfectly flavored coffee and creamer. Sharing a cup with Chris has this sexy, intimate feel to it that always does funny things to my belly.

“Your last day as a free woman,” he comments.

“Why? Are you planning to tie me up sometime soon?”

He covers my hands on his cup. “Is that an objection, or wishful thinking?” He tilts the cup and drinks, his eyes never leaving mine.

“I plead the Fifth. It’s more fun that way.”

“That it is,” he agrees, but a sigh follows. “I wish I could do the same, but you’d better look at the newspaper.” He sets the cup on the counter, then hands me the Arts section of the local paper.

Dread fills me as I read the headline: “Acclaimed Artist and Philanthropist Chris Merit to wed Sara McMillan on Valentine’s Day in Star-studded Event in Sonoma.” I set it down. “We went to so much trouble to get the press off our backs before the wedding, and now they’ve found us! I knew when all these famous people showed up on the guest list, it was going to turn into a zoo.”

“Walker Security anticipated the press, and they’re staffed and ready for it. It’ll be fine. We’ll be shielded.”

Nerves the size of birds, not butterflies, attack my stomach.

“We should have eloped.”

“We still can. Let’s do it. Now. Today.”

“We can’t elope,” I say, sounding appalled, as if he’d suggested it, not me. “People who respect you are coming a long way to see us. And Katie has planned this for months.”

“Baby, we can do whatever we want. This is our day.”

“No. We can’t. Not this far into this. Which reminds me— you can’t stay here tonight. It’s bad luck to see the bride the night before the wedding.”

“I told you how I feel about that. We make our own luck.”


He kisses me. “I’m staying here tonight, and I’m fucking you like I won’t see you ever again, just to be sure you walk down that aisle.”

“If you’re waiting for me at the end of that aisle, I’ll be there. And if you’re staying here tonight, we can use separate bedrooms.”

“Does today count as part of that eve-of-the-wedding rule?”


He scoops me up and I yelp. “What are you doing?”

“I’m a renegade, baby. Let’s go break the rules.”

Reviews by the Wicked Reads Review Team

I loved this series, but I hope this isn't the end. I need Ella's ending so maybe she will get her own book. This was beautifully done, and I really enjoyed it. We've come so far in these books that's it's only fair we get the HEA, and this was definitely that. No spoilers here but I can't wait for this to come out in the box set, so I can buy it and read it all together. The series is just that good. Overall entertainment is five stars.

This was a great book, I love Sara and Chris. This book brings some closure to the entire story but there are still things that need to be answered and I sure hope there are at least a few more books or a spin off series. I don’t want to spoil anything but for those that have read the entire series up to this point, you will not be disappointed!

Characters: The characters were well written and believable.
Sex: Yes
Religious: No
Would I recommend to others: Yes
More than one book in the series: Yes
Genre: Romance
Would I read more by this author: Yes

I have to admit that this story felt like an Epilogue to the entire series. I was expecting a recap of Chris and Sara's story, but this was so much more.
Many questions that were left unanswered in book #5 were touched upon in this, and for that I am thankful.

Chris and Sara's relationship is evolving, we've experienced them growing together and learning each other. This story shows how just how much they've gained with and for each other.

Rebecca's story has come to an end, not happily, but there is finally closure. As well as closure in the Mark & Crystal story.

Overall, I was pleasantly surprised by this book and am so glad that Ms. Jones gave us an extra book as I felt disappointed in the last book – this certainly made up for it!

4.5 stars
I think this was the perfect ending to this series. It left Ella's story open, which I am a bit sad about, but at the end Lisa does make a note that Ella is getting her own books so that was okay with me even though I REALLY wanted to know what happened with her.

We get closure on a few things from all the other books, including Mark and Crystal, not just Chris and Sara. Just like every other book, I couldn't put it down because Lisa just sucks you in and you can't escape.

The only reason it wasn't five stars (besides not getting Ella's Story) was that the naughty scenes seemed repetitive and just thrown in when in the other books they were more important I suppose because of Chris and his 'coping methods' so to speak.

It has been a pleasure following Sara, Chris and Mark throughout this series. All of Me is sexy, a little emotional and joyful. Ms. Jones gives us a lovely conclusion to Sara and Mark's storyline with a tiny splash of Mark and Crystal. We are also given a tiny hit of Ella and I look forward to reading the spin off series which is coming our way this year.

All of Me was a sweet and satisfying end to the series.
