Is it time for a second chance at love?

When Lily left her home town – and the love of her life Wade – 8 years ago to start her acting career she had big plans to make her dream a reality. However, a few dead end jobs and one dead end relationship later she is back to make a fresh start with the only good thing to come out it all – her unborn baby.

Lily soon realises however that the heart wants what the heart wants, and hers clearly still wanted Wade Copeland! Can they overcome the hurt and pain of the past to allow themselves a future?

The third novel in the sizzlingly sexy Copeland Ranch romance trilogy from Kristina O'Grady

All For You is the third book of a trilogy, normally I wouldn't start a trilogy at book 3, but there was something about this that caught my eye about this release and I thought why not. Thankfully it is a standalone, although because of the common setting there were references to the first two books, but not in a way that I felt like I was missing huge parts of the story. 

Lily and Wade are both very likeable people, and from the moment they saw each other again after 8 years, the outcome was pretty much obvious. However its the story in between that I was interested in, as its all about the journey, and this has a good journey. 

Lily has arrived back in town after 8 years, as she is pregnant and can't stay with the father any longer. The problem is she has been lying about what her life is really like to those back home, so she has no idea what her reception will be, and she walked out on Wade too all those years ago. 

There is some clear sexual tension in this book, especially while Lily is in denial about her feelings.  However the will they, won't they aspect of the book does keep you interested as does Lily's best friend Charmaine and her brood of kids. Some of what the children get up to not only has Lily laughing hysterically but had me giggling too. 

I really liked the setting of Copeland Ranch, in Canada, and the road trip at the start of the book took in a very friendly diner that is what I would imagine a diner in that part of the world to be like. 

All For You was very enjoyable, and easy to read story, that felt a bit shorter than I was perhaps expecting it to be. I found it to be a fast read, and I loved the way Lily was referring to her unborn baby at times. 

Thank you so much to Netgalley and Carina for this review copy. This was my honest opinion. 

About Kristina O'Grady:
Kristina O’Grady has always loved telling a good story. She took up writing at a young age and spent many hours – when she should have been doing her math homework – scribbling romance stories in a book she hid in her sock drawer.
She grew up on a cattle ranch in Western Canada and loves reminiscing by writing about cowboys and their horses.
In 2000 Kristina met her own knight in shining armour/cowboy who swept her off her feet and across the world to New Zealand, where she now lives on a sheep and beef farm with her amazingly supportive husband, three gorgeous young kids, seven working dogs and one very needy cat.

All for You is her fifth book.
