Alec Winston is a famous, best-selling author of a horror series, with horrors of his own in life; his writers block threatens to ruin his career. Frustrated, he returns to Wilmington for his brother Jake's wedding to Covington princess, Lacey. With hope that his writers block will shift, he tried to find inspiration to help him return to writing. When Faith Armstrong comes along, with a voice like a mermaid and timid persona, he finds himself intrig

Kelly Moran’s latest contemporary is a tender story of unrequited love and forgiveness. All of Me is another story that had me in tears due to the raw emotions expressed from both main characters and how they dealt with love lost, and their own personal demons that still haunt them years later.

Faith Armstrong is a breath of fresh air as she comes to life on the pages. She is strong yet fragile, perceptive yet clueless, and selfless to a fau

"There is nothing you need to do or say. Love is a gift, one I knew little about before you, and like any gift, all you have to do is accept it. It doesn’t need to be returned.”
I'm a bloody watering pot. An emotional roller coaster read. One moment I was bursting into fits of laughter and the next I was a bloody watering sobbing pot. Be prepared with at least a box of tissues.
Well developed characters and aligned correctly with the direction which the author intend

Alec Winston is one of the main characters, he is an author who is quite famous, but he has writers block, and his career is at risk. His brother Jake is getting married so he decides to return home to Wilmington beach.

We all have baggage. Novelist Alec Winston and tutor Faith Armstrong are no exception. It is the way they manage to work through their baggage together, helping and complementing each other that is the best part of this book. I swear that Kelly Moran has a direct feed on what makes people tick and an amazing ability to put that insight down on paper in such a way that you just don't want to stop reading!

This was such a great book. I was hooked from the first page. The characters are so well written they feel like friends. I didn't want to put it down. This is Alec and Faith's story and I found both to be very likeable characters. I really wanted to see both of them get their happily ever after. Of course there is some baggage from the past that gets in the way. It was a fun, emotional ride to see if they could overcome the obstacles in their way.

All of Me by Kelly Moran is the second book in her Covington Cove series. Alec Winston is our hero, as he returns to Covington Cove to attend his brother Jake and Lacey’s Wedding. Mia and Cole, our heroes in the first book are already married. This is certainly a family affair, and turns into another wonderful romance. The best part of Covington Cove is being able to spend time with the Covington’s.

This book is a sequel book, and I unfortunately didn't get the chance to read that book before reading this book. I was extremely happy to find that the first book wasn't a necessary read to understand this book, but I do want to go and read the first book now! Kelly Moran did a great job of making this book understandable for people who were reading this as a stand alone. I really enjoyed her writing style throughout the entire book. She did a great job of intertwining humor with realness.

This book is AMAZING. I LOVED it.
This book is about Alec and Faith. Alec came to Wilmington for his brothers wedding and Faith came for a job. They both got more then they expected when they met. Alec has stuff in his past that keeps him from wanting to open up and have a forever with someone. Faith has always felt invisible and afraid to want more because she never feels the love. If these two can over come all of their heartache from the past they can have a wonderful life together.

The more books of Kelly Moran’s I read, the more enthralled I am with her writing. I just finished her latest work, the second novel in the Covington Cove series - All of Me – and I was truly stunned. A poignant tale that caught me off guard emotionally, All of Me was the first book in nearly ten years that touched my heart and made me weep throughout the story.

Alec and Faith were both such wonderful, wounded souls. Alec has finally hit the wall and it has manifested as a huge case of writer's block.

All Of Me is the second book in the Covington Cove series by Kelly Moran, which began with book one: Return to Me.

Though characters from book one are a big part of All Of Me, it centers on two new people not in Return To Me, Alec, who is a best-selling writer of horror fiction stuck with a bad case of writer's block, and Faith, a young woman starting a new beginning for herself, away from her home.

A really eye-opening story! Faith Armstrong has never been loved, valued or invited to be a friend to anyone. Faith feels isolated, like she doesn't belong anywhere. Why- because her selfish, self-absorbed parents conceived her to be an organ donor for Hope, her terminally ill sister. After Hope dies, Faith's parents simply ignore Faith since they have no more use for her. How sad. As a one-on-one tutor to a special needs student, Faith moves to North Carolina to begin a new life.
