*****Mel’s Review*****

5 “All I Want Is You” Stars!



Rowan Dugas is a pregnant widow from New Orleans whose whole world recently fell apart when she lost her husband in an MMA fight. Since his death, she’s just been trying to function one day at a time but continues to feel completely broken and alone. She lost her parents years ago & the only family she has left now is her in-laws & her sister-in-law Savannah.


Savannah wants to cheer Rowan up & take her mind off reality, so she arranges for Rowan to attend a show and a meet & greet in Houston to see her favorite band August on Fire. Rowan has been obsessed with their music for years, & it’s helped get her through some of the hardest times in her life. It was like her own personal therapy. Growing up she also had a huge crush on the lead singer Zane Larson. He was her favorite singer ever, & starred in many of her fantasies. She never thought she’d actually meet him, & was shocked by how approachable & kind he is.


Zane Larson is a super hot rock star from Houston who spends his time making music, touring, and hanging out with his two brothers Mike & Damien. He’s the middle brother & the lead singer of a popular rock band. His older brother brings his girlfriends sister-in-law Rowan to one of his concerts & from the moment he first see’s her she is all he can think about. He wants to get to know her, show her some fun & make her smile. They become friends & begin talking on the phone. Soon Zane suggests they get together & offers to fly to New Orleans.

“The” Zane Larson wants to take her out, & Rowan accepts. She can’t figure out his interest in her, but she could definitely use a distraction, so if this gorgeous celebrity wants to take her on a date she’s game. She figures he must be taking her out cause he feels sorry for her, but she’s still excited to get out of the house and have a good time.


The more time Rowan spends with Zane, the lighter her spirit feels. He’s practically a stranger, but oddly his presence always felt comforting. She could talk to him about things she couldn’t with the other people in her life. When he’s around she can escape reality & she’s happy. She begins to feel a little guilty as her feelings grow for Zane. Her heart doesn’t hurt as bad when she’s with this beautiful man. She laughs, smiles and can just live in the moment. He makes her feel cherished & cared for. She doesn’t need any complications in her life right now as a mother to be, but she doesn’t know how she can ever give him up.

Zane is completely enchanted with Rowan. He absolutely adores her & wants to be with her. Their timing is awful, but you can’t pick when you fall in love.


I loved this book so much! Sexy rock star Zane Larson finds the love of his life in Rowan Dugas. The situation isn’t ideal, but he goes for it anyway. He wants her to be his & fights for his place in her heart. This story was beautiful & this man totally stole my heart. He was so tender & swoon worthy with a heart of gold. Then you throw in the whole rock star aspect and I was a goner. I’m completely obsessed with these Larson brothers! Bring on Damien next!!! ;))
