All I Ask by Corinne Michaels

All I AskAll I Ask by Corinne Michaels
My rating: 2 of 5 stars

I was sent this book from the publisher/publicity team. My ratings and reviews will be my own personal opinions and are in no way influenced by publishers or authors who may have sent me books to review.

First, I am a huge Corinne Michaels fan and was super excited for this one. Second, this cover is beyond gorgeous. However; this one fell a little flat for me.

I love second chance romances, but I just could never get into this one for some reason. It was a little too slow and repetitive. There was not enough going on to keep my attention. There were too many things that were unrealistic and things just felt forced. I just never bought into their romance or anything going on.

I was also just waiting for that gut wrenching moment that I have come to love from Corinne Michaels. It just did not come in this one.

Overall, this one just did not work for me.

I actually picked this one up a while back prior to the release. I was really enjoying it, but was just not in a reading mood. I am so glad I picked this one back up. I cannot believe that this was the authors debut novel!

I really loved learning more around the Indian culture. We get to see several sides within the culture from both families.

This does start off with parents who are trying to arrange a marriage for their child, Liya. I loved how Liya did not want to just accept some of her cultural expectations and fought for what she wanted for her own life.

If you love hate to love romances, I definitely recommend checking this one out. I really enjoyed how Jay and Liya meet and how they have several encounters before a romance begins to build.

This also deals with some heavier topics such sexual abuse. Jay is also dealing with some past trauma. Liya really has her walls up but Jay really sticks by her side which I loved. The sexual abuse did not wrap up the way I would have liked, but the author still did a good job ensuring support for Liya was in place and ensuring she was not left feeling responsible for what happened to her.

Overall, I really enjoyed this one!
