A sexy, emotional New Adult romance about a bad boy on the edge and a good girl about to lose control... A college baseball star isn’t supposed to have skeletons in his closet. But Daniel Quinn is hiding a guilty past so dark he refuses to let anyone get close. Except there’s something about gorgeous, studious Ella Abrams that goes beyond the electric attraction between them—something that makes him want to open up. Ella has suffered enough heartache and guilt to fill one of her psychology textbooks, but she keeps that part of herself hidden behind a bubbly exterior. Until she receives an anonymous call while working a suicide helpline and the voice on the other end touches something inside of her that she can’t ignore. Soon Ella and Quinn’s physical connection heats up, even as their deep and revealing hotline talks intensify. But by the time Ella realizes that her seductive jock and her sensitive caller are the same guy, it might be too late to save him—or to stop herself from falling too far... Raves for Christina Lee’s All of You:

4 solid stars for a sexy, emotional book full of hope!

We first met Ella in ‘All of You,’ as one of Avery’s best friends.  She’s the straight edged, normal, good girl who is currently stuck in a relationship for all the wrong reasons.  Enter the sweet, tortured, baseball player Quinn — oh, this boy just tugged at my heart!

Ella is a psychology major, and works at a suicide prevention hotline.  Quinn has suffered major loss in his past, which bring him to call the suicide hotline one fateful night.  Ella and Quinn have no idea who each other are, but after this first phone call, their anonymous phone relationship blooms right along with their ‘real life’ relationship.

I really enjoyed these two characters, and empathized with them so much!  They have both have suffered such loss, and are so deserving of real love.  It was great watching their relationship shift and develop.  My heart was broken at times, and so full at other times!  Oh, and the sex….HOT!  For being such a lost, sad soul, Quinn sure was sexy and sensual!  This book was one hot, emotional ride.  I look forward to the next installment in the series!
