A man in need of help . . .

Then Gabriel Dalton walks into her life. Despite the terrible

Most of All You is another awe-inspiring story by Mia Sheridan. Mia is a true story-teller and always writes meaningful books that leave my heart happy. This book had the emotion, romance, and unique plot that always comes with a Mia book.

I don’t want to talk at all about Gabriel or Crystal’s story. Their pasts play a huge role in their present and I loved how that was incorporated in the story. Gabriel was such a fantastic hero. I felt for him, adored him, and fell for him. Crystal
➳Two people living through their pasts that have brought them together within different purposes in a way that are filled with passion, love, and admiration…

➳Ellie, being the main female character in this emotionally compelling love story, has characteristics in the fictional world that create such a raw intensity of understanding towards anyone in the real world. Her childhood past did not just bring her towards the negatives in life, but also the slight positives that turn into a full cir

What a sad and depressing prologue, we are introduced to Eloise/Ellie as a little girl and read how she loses someone very close to her and how that will change the course of her life.

Chapter 1 starts with Ellie/Crystal (I'm just going to call her Ellie) 'dancing' at a strip club, she notices a very out of place good looking guy sitting in the back of the bar, doesn't think much of it until he approaches her.

Aww, this was so sweet. And the feels. Oh, the feels.

It was a bit overly sentimental at times, but that’s exactly what I needed. A balm for my heart which is still bruised after my last read.

Beautiful writing, beautiful story, beautiful characters.

I'm a very luck lady to have received an ARC. Stunningly poignant, "Most of All You", is now one of my favourite Mia Sheridan novels! I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, Mia has this wonderful and agonizing ability to make my chest physically ache for her characters and their tragedies and joys. Heroine, Crystal, is a revelation. In a powerful and skilfully-crafted evolution, she buried her way under my skin with her aching complexity. And if she wasn’t heartbreaking enough, Gabriel!

I enjoyed this story it’s a bit different for Mia Sheridan. I thought she did a wonderful job with the progression of love between the characters and most definitely the heroine’s evolution to become unto herself worthy of the hero’s love.


The story has just enough drama and angst to keep it for me not on the boring side and Gabriel and Eloise make a very sweet book couple.

We touched and kissed with loving hands and open hearts, and I’d been right to think I’d never experienced anything like this before. It was tender and generous, and it was everything. Everything I’d never known.

MOST OF ALL YOU is a hauntingly beautiful love story that grabbed a hold of my heart from the start. I have been a long time fan of Mia Sheridan and this book solidifies why she is one truly gifted author. I found it hard not to high

Such a beautiful,emotional and sweet story. I literally read it in one sitting.I fall in love with the story from the first pages and I couldn't put it down.Mia Sheridan completely drew me into Ellie and Gabriel's story.


Both characters were broken and they found to each other what they really needed.I loved how they met and how things started for them.It was nice watching them developing slowly a relationship.There were moments I wanted to cry and I was aching for them.

Overall Opinion: Mia Sheridan will remain one of my favorite authors, because she always has a unique story to tell that taps into my feelings. This probably isn't my favorite book of hers, but that's just because she has such amazing stuff! I feel bad for rating this as 4 stars, but for me that is a pretty high rating. I feel like she could re-write the phone book and I'd still enjoy her take on it and eat it up! I love her perspective on life and how that shows through in her character

HOLY WOW!! This book was captivating, beautifully-written, and heart-felt! Over the last few years, I've fallen in love with many of Mia Sheridan's books and this was one of my favorites! It was a deeply healing, slow-burning love story about two incredibly damaged people who fell unexpectedly into each other's lives and helped mend each other's broken pieces. It was a story about never giving up on the ones you love and care about and holding on to that love even through the darkest of times. I

I honestly just don't even know how to review this book. I don't mean that as a bad thing but I just don't think any words I can string together for a review will do this book justice. These pages drew me into the lives of Gabriel and Ellie and made me live with them. Mia Sheridan never fails to write something so spectacular that it encompasses my world and turns it into the one she created and it's why I will forever be a fan of hers.

Mia Sheridan brings together two lonely people in a unique story of acceptance, recovery and the discovery that love comes in all different shapes and forms, not all of them painful to experience.

I will be honest and say straight off the bat that this sort of story lately has been like reading kryptonite for me, high levels of angst and drama have definitely not been floating my boat, but something about the synopsis for this one ur

Mia Sheridan is a legend in this biz, and Most of All You is a good example as to why. Gabriel is my perfect Hero. Kind, broken, but with a heart of gold. Crystal is strong, despite a harrowing past,and the two of them together are perfection.

ETA forgot to add my favorite thing: Mia has a way of capturing every moment of how her characters respond to each other. Every word, look, gesture, is described in beautiful, nuanced reactions and I just flipping love that.

“Our pasts-and our hearts- aligned in such a way that we were meant to heal each other”.

From the moment I saw that Mia Sheridan was releasing a new book, I knew I had to read it. This was the same author that broke my heart and mended it back together with Archer’s Voice and I was prepared to go back on that same crazy whirlwind emotional ride.

Anytime I come across a Mia Sheridan book, I just know it’s going to be a very good read and this was no exception. I only wish she’d release a book every month. Lol.

“His breath against my neck was a calming wind, his smile the sunshine, his touch was a thousand rainbows dancing on my skin, and I loved him so much I thought my heart would burst.”

There hasn’t been a book of Mia Sheridan’s that I have not loved with all my heart, her breathtaking stories brimming with so much emotion and intensity, that I never quite know how to move on from all they’ve made me feel. I often end up re-reading chapters, time and time again, desperate to stay in that

Crystal is a woman whom from a young age has experienced life’s cruelties. Ever the survivor her defence is to cut herself off from all delusions of a possible better life for herself. Experience has taught her harsh lessons and she has become accustom to a life of disappointment after disappointment. She earns a living by stripping and is reminded on a daily basis of how fragile and disposable the life she has clawed together for herself is.

This is by far the sweetest book I've read all year and it's definitely romance to the core. Gabriel and Ellie both have had horrible pasts. Your heart will hurt for these characters...especially the hero. Their past haunts them every single day. They both struggle to make sense of life and love, but when they find each other it's like two pieces of a puzzle coming together and fitting perfectly. Gabriel and Ellie help each other work through their past and they get stronger in eac

I received this book for free in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.

Kidnapped and locked in a basement for six years, Gabriel managed to physically escape but years later as an adult, he is still somewhat mentally in that dark place.
Ellie lost her mother young and with a disinterested father, she slipped through the cracks.
Two lonely souls are about to connect.

Most of All You will make you feel. This is an amazing story. I loved it!

Review: Most of All You is a standalone contemporary romance novel. It was one of my most anticipated books of Fall 2017 and I devoured it in one day. I was hoping that it would be as amazing as some of the author's previous books. And I was not disappointed.

Ellie didn't have the best life growing up. Her mom loved her very much, but they never had enough money. And then, when Ellie was still little, her mom died and left her with her dad - a man she had never met before - a man who wasn't happy to inherit this little girl.

Gabe's life growing up was just a bad. I'm putting what happened to him in a spoiler thingy ... (view spoiler)

Every time I read a book written by Mia Sheridan I time it so that I can have uninterrupted reading time, past experience dictates that my undivided attention will be required. And I am so glad I did that because OMG I think I highlighted 2/3 of the book! The writing was incredible and so many times I read a sentence, went back and re-read it and then said 'wow' out loud." Here is just one example of one of those moments…

“I don’t mind chasing you, Ellie. Just let me catch you once in a while.”

Gabriel is a man who is trying to find a way to deal with his issues stemming from a childhood trauma. This leads him to an unconventional method and to a stripper named Crystal.

Except she's not really Crystal, she's Eloise (Ellie for short)...and while she has a tough exterior, she's really a softie. It just takes Gabriel to bring it out in her.

5 stars – Contemporary Romance

This is such a profoundly poignant, beautiful, heartrending, soulful, and redemptive romance! There’s no way I can possibly do it justice with a review. And honestly, I’m glad that I didn’t know much about the story/plot/characters before reading it because I think this is one of those reads that’s best when its angst, beauty, pain, surprises, heartbreak, hope, and healing are revealed without preconceptions and expectations.

Most of All You is an unforgettable roma
