Love could prove fatal in N.B. Baker’s thrilling and titillating debut, Everything. A seductive tale of romance and deception, its twists and turns lead to a shocking finale that proves no secret is left buried forever.

No one would ever mistake Ella Stone’s life for a fairy tale. Abandoned by her parents when she was an infant, Ella was raised by her grandparents on a vast Wyoming ranch. When they both pass away within a year of each other, Ella must contemplate her own future for the first time.

Upon moving to Detroit to be closer to friends, Ella is immediately swept away by the passionate, up-and-coming artist Hunter. But their romance comes to an abrupt end when she catches him in bed with another woman. Struggling to move on, Ella meets Chance St. John. Their coincidental run-ins seem almost comical at first. Until the night he rescues her from a brutal attack.

As they get to know each other, Ella and Chance embark on a passionate journey that neither had ever thought possible. But Ella can’t fight the feeling that Chance is holding something back, something from his past that he’s just not willing to share.

Ella must discover the truth before Chance’s dark past destroys them both.

What a fantastic book!!! Really just a wonderful read!!! Please be sure to get this one - it’s so good. I can’t say anything bad. The beginning was great, the middle not too long but enough substance to keep your attention and the ending…..OMG! So good!!!! What a wonderful debut novel!!! N.B. Baker has now a fan for life!!!!

Ella is sweet and charming and I have her in my head as a tiny little cute pixie type thing. But she’s got fire…..she’s passionate in love and extremely loyal to her friends (aka Family) and fierce when she needs to be. 

After coming home from home (she’s from Wyoming) and finding a girl riding her boyfriend of two years she’s heart broken. Well…..not really. More just pissed that she wasted two years. She moves into an “apartment” at her BFF’s house and tries to move on with her life. She’s at the grocery store one day and runs into Chance….

Chance is amazing. He’s a gentleman, he’s caring, loving, funny and HOT!!! He’s very sweet and romantic but in a manly kind of way. He’s wonderful and definitely book boyfriend material. However, his past will haunt them both. The things they will have to overcome, heartbreak, injury, gun shots, etc. Will Chance open up to her and finally tell Ella about his past? Will she be ok with it? What about Chance’s family, will they support them? 

     He raises his head slowly, and I can see the concern etched in his face. Looking me directly in the eyes, he says, “Baby, if something were to ever happen to you…..” He pauses and takes a deep breath before he continues, “That would absolutely destroy me. It’s my job to keep you safe. Do you understand that? El, you’re my everything. I love you.”
     My heart instantly goes into overdrive, feeling like it’s going to burst right out of my chest, and tears fall from my eyes. I put my hands on each side of his face and lean up so we are just a few inches apart, looking directly into each other’s eyes. “I love you too. From the bottom of my soul, I love you.”

I mean really? How great is that? There’s mystery in this book, a lot of it actually. There’s fun and lots and lots of ROMANCE!!!! I loved this book!!! Such a quick summer read for the beach or vacation. You will only be sorry if you don’t read Everything!
