From the New York Times bestselling author of Archer's Voice comes an "uplifting story of two broken souls" (Corinne Michaels) in this "exquisite, beautifully written romance" (Samantha Young).
A broken woman . . .
Crystal learned long ago that love brings only pain. Feeling nothing at all is far better than being hurt again. She guards her wounded heart behind a hard exterior and carries within her a deep mistrust of men, who, in her experience, have only ever used and taken.
A man in need of help . . .
Then Gabriel Dalton walks into her life. Despite the terrible darkness of his past, there's an undeniable goodness in him. And even though she knows the cost, Crystal finds herself drawn to Gabriel. His quiet strength is wearing down her defenses and his gentle patience is causing her to question everything she thought she knew.
Only love can mend a shattered heart . . .
Crystal and Gabriel never imagined that the world, which had stolen everything from them, would bring them a deep love like this. Except fate will only take them so far, and now the choice is theirs: Harden their hearts once again or find the courage to shed their painful pasts.

This book was unforgettable!
Most of All You was a breathtakingly emotional story of two broken people trying to make it through life and the life altering hurdles it threw in their way. This story is one that is filled with unimaginable pain and anguish, yet in the same breath is filled with the most soul touching love and healing that you will ever experience. As much as this story is about hurt and darkness and things that threaten to take the life out of you, it is just as much, if not more so about love and light and the things that make life worth living for.
Mia Sheridan continues to be one of the most talented authors I have ever had the pleasure of reading. The way she so thoughtfully weaves together stories and characters that are deep, so unforgettably real, and that sear themselves to your heart is what continues to make her one of my favorite authors. Her words, the feelings and emotions behind them, and the beautiful and powerful meaning she crafts behind them are so much more. They are more unforgettable, more amazing, more consuming, and more all-feeling.
She just makes her stories and characters and everything with them mean so much more, and that truly sets her books in a league of their own.
Most of All You follows what happens when two people with a world of hurt and pain in their pasts, find themselves on the same path trying to find a way to heal, to find themselves, and to be who they were always meant to be. This story follows them through every struggle, triumph, and moment in between with them as they fight against each other and what they know is right, as they fight for themselves, and as they fight to end up in the exact place they know they need to be. Most of All You gives you their highs, their lows, and every moment in between as they try to find their way through the darkness that threatens to surround them. This book has a story within it that is bursting with so much heart, so much varied emotion, and so much hope. Hope for the future, hope for healing, and hope for what could be if fate finds a way. Getting to experience that hope along with everything else in this book was extraordinary.
Every page of this book, every sentence with these characters, and every word I experienced while reading put me right in the thick of this book with these characters loving and feeling and breathing and living everything that they were.
The way that Mia Sheridan once again puts you in the heart of her story will pull at every one of your emotions, and will have you rooting with all that you have that Gabriel and Ellie will find a way to get to the place they both deserve to be. Through every page of this book my love for those two grew exponentially, and the way that Mia Sheridan gave me them, as their messiest, at their most complicated, at their most broken pulled my heart to them a million times over. She allowed me to get them, to understand their pain and their journeys and why they guarded their hearts the way she did. She also allowed me to see and feel how it all started to change, and to understand the fears and worries and vulnerabilities that went along with that.
Through every page and word of what I read and felt, I got these characters. I got them, their fight, their falls, and every moment of the two of them seeing what could be if they could only find it through that darkness to the light they both wanted. Ellie and Gabriel’s story was beautiful. It was raw and intense at times and so breathtakingly real, and getting to fall in love with them both while I got to experience their incredible journeys of fight and healing was everything.
Gabriel was a man who melted my heart from the very first page. His honesty, his sweetness, and his patience blew me away. That man had a heart of gold that shined on every page, and the words out of his mouth and the meaning behind them had me loving him with all that I had. Ellie and her hard exterior, her blunt nature, and her fiery self pulled me in, even when that girl did all she could to push others away. Getting to see that exterior of hers crack, getting to see her walls fall, and getting to be there with her as she tried to figure out who she was and what she wanted was amazing. It was real and genuine and it was her, and that was everything to get.
Most of All You was one of the most perfect love stories I have ever read, and what’s funny is it probably had two of the most broken characters in it, yet it was their brokenness, their cracks, and the dings in their armor that made this story so beautiful, so right, and so epic. Every word of this book wowed me. Every emotion behind it all moved me and had my heart melting and my eyes tearing up more times than I could count. Every moment I got with these characters gave me it all, and in the end I know that I will not soon forget what this story so exceptionally gave me.
It was breathtaking, it was emotional, it was healing, it was pain and hurt and love and light all mixed into one, and through it all it was a story about what can happen when you learn to embrace the cracks that let you see the light.
I cannot say enough how much I loved this book and what it gave me. Ellie and Gabriel’s story will move you in ways you didn’t know possible, and will give you a love story you won’t soon forget, and it truly does not get better than that!
