Most of All You : A Love Story by Mia Sheridan
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: October 17th
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 about 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 that 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.

Amikor egy könyv olyan mélyen megérinti a lelkedet, hogy olvasás közben arra eszmélsz, hogy egy könnycsepp észrevétlenül legördült az arcodon, akkor tudod, hogy valami különlegeset olvastál.

My Review in English
When a book touches your heart so deeply that during your read you suddenly feel that a tear rolls down your cheek, you know that you read something special. Something unique. Something unforgettable. Mia Sheridan always manages to create something extraordinary, but Most of All You was exceptional among the other amazing books by the author, and it became one of my favorite books by her.
Ellie and Gabriel’s journey was breathtakingly beautiful. Maybe it was a fairy tale, but it was a soul-touching, beautiful fairy tale. Ellie and Gabe meet an unexpected place and an unexpected situation. Both of them had a really painful childhood but they try to live, try to move on, only sometimes it’s not easy. Some scars can’t be completely healed, they stay inside you permanently. Gabe is an amazing person. While what happened with him is unimaginably tragic, he still tries to find the good in everything and everyone. And he sees the good in Ellie from the first moment even if she tries to hide it. For her own protection she buries her emotions deep inside her and she tries to keep everyone at arm’s length. But Gabe sees her, and he doesn’t give up easily…
The plot of the story was truly unique and unexpected, and I found both of the characters extremely complex. I loved the contrast between them, and it was so amazing how the author started to peel their layers off one after another, slowly revealing the amazing souls hidden under the surface. Just like Gabe’s hands created beautiful sculptures from a hard stone, Mia Sheridan created something beautiful, too. Gabe and Ellie’s healing was a journey of heart-ache and love, and I’m so honored that I could follow them through it. Gabriel is one of the most amazing characters I’ve ever met in a book. His past broke my heart into little pieces, but he was incredible, brave and he had such a big heart! It was amazing how he believed in Ellie, how he helped her, how he put away his own struggles for her. I fell so hard for him!
This is a story that breaks your heart but heals it at the same time. A story that makes you believe and gives you hope. A story about survival, healing and love. An unforgettable journey that I recommend with all my heart.
My Favorite Quotes From the Book
“But that’s what solid stone is made from, Eloise.
Sand and pressure”—he squeezed me lightly with the arm still holding me —“and time. That’s all it is, my sweet love. Just sand and pressure and time.”
She’d said something similar to me at the Platinum Pearl and I’d questioned my own motives. But looking at her now, I knew that had never been my intent. I wanted her to heal, and I hoped I could be a part of that. But no one could fix anyone else. We could only fix ourselves. “No, you’re right.
I can’t fix you.” I can only love you. And I truly want to try.”
