"Prescott Lane breathes new life into single-dad romances with the young and devastatingly sexy Garrett." - USA Today
"Hot single dad devoted to his daughter? Second chances? All the tension you could ask for? Look no further! Devoured this gem and you will too!" - #1 NYT bestselling author Rachel Van Dyken
The beginning of any love story starts with the meet.
I've known Garrett Hollis since before I can remember, and I've loved him just as long. I loved him while he loved someone else. I loved him when he had a baby with her. I loved him when she left him.
The greatest of love stories is that between a dad and his daughter. I should know. I've had a front row seat. First steps, first words, all the big moments.
Garrett was just a teenager when Mia was born. I've watched him braid his daughter's hair, hold her hand crossing the street, seen her asleep on his chest. I'm the best friend, the one they can count on for everything from dance lessons to motherly advice, anything they need. I'm their go-to girl.
The best part of any love story is the happily ever after.
But what if the happily ever after doesn't include you?
All my life, that's how long I've loved him.
Of course, he's clueless.
Great Friends to Lovers story
My first read from Prescott Lane was an enjoyable one. All My Life was extremely well written, and I will absolutely be reading more from this author.
Garrett is an amazing father. While I thought this story would be one with a little girl, his daughter actually has just graduated high school. He’s raised her all alone, with the help of his small town, including his best friend Devlyn. Devlyn, of course has always been in love with Garrett.
It was a good story, although parts felt like Devlyn was being walked all over, and she just let it happen. I don’t really want to give too much away, but ultimately I enjoyed it and would recommend it. His friends to lovers romance was sweet and sexy in one.
HEA but it took too long to get there. I’m not sure if Devlyn was patient or stupid for waiting forever for Garrett to finally notice her ... and when it happened, it took just as long (in terms of time, not really; in terms of emotions and tears, definitely!) for Garrett to “out” their relationship. Always got an excuse for why “now is not a good time”. Never mind that they enjoyed the behind-closed-door aspects (yes, THAT!) of it. Garrett used Devlyn - emotionally and physically - and she let him. Is that love - on either/both sides? Grandpa was the best part of the story. He was the only one with something worthwhile to say or do, every time he popped up.
Review: All My Life
All My Life by Prescott Lane is a standalone contemporary friends-to-lovers romance. Told in dual POV between Devlyn and Garrett the book opens with the high school valedictorian speech given by Garrett's daughter Mia and takes the reader on a wild trip into the lives of Garrett, Mia, Devlyn and how they came to be where they are at this crossroads in all their lives. Passionate, well-written and well-paced, this story was epic and awesome and I loved every minute of it.
Devlyn has been in love with Garrett since the moment she laid eyes on him and they were best friends ever since. At fifteen, Devlyn experienced a switch in their friendship when an outsider came to their sleepy town for the summer. Garrett fell for Sheena and left Devlyn on the outside, still his best friend but she felt the loss of him when his romantic interest was turned to this newcomer. When Sheena returns months later, pregnant, Devlyn knows that is it for her. Determined now to be the best friend he could ever want - she is there for him the entire pregnancy and all the years he raised his daughter.
Garrett was the one the town thought would get the football scholarship and go away to a great college, but when he becomes the teen parent and pariah of the town only Devlyn is there for him. Thanks to her solid friendship the town softens towards his outcast status and when he is left to parent alone, they all start to help in whatever ways they can. The whole town becomes "adoptive" parents of Mia. When things shift between Devlyn and himself he starts to question everything he thought he knew about the past 18 years. He sees everything in a different, much clearer light. Finally he is ready to give Devlyn everything she deserves and more and then a blast from the past shows back up ad throws everyones lives into turmoil.
Loved this! Enjoy!
