Amazing and fun read, loved every moment of the growing Connection between Stephanie and Ace as their story unfolded. Ace is so sweet and sexy, Alpha male with a huge heart. Stephanie is so strong and delicate all at the same time crazy balance but she pulls it off. These two have just found the second chance at forever love that they both were trying to avoid for different yet the same reasons.

Visiting Harper’s Crossing is always a pleasure and this visit sure does not disappoint. Great

Wow. I have read all the books the author duo Melanie Shawn has published, and after each book, I am still in a state of awe with the freshness of the tales, the deep complex emotions they create, and the sensual scenes they draw on the pages.
The feeling of falling in love is so complex and the thoughts, doubts, desires, and joy of falling, tumbling into love are not easy to capture adequately, and then comes All He Needs, and in nearly poetic matter, the hesitation, disbelief, fear, glee, and

"All He Needs" is written by Melanie Shawn, and it is the 10th book in their Crossroads Book series. It can be read as a stand-alone book. It features Ace Elliot and Stephanie Holland.

There are just some stories where you can tell you're reading something special just after reading the first few pages. This is one of those stories. It's so beautifully well-written. Very heartwarming and touching. And I simply adored Ace and Stephanie!

Another great book in the Crossroads Series. Stephanie Holland is a nurse that not only takes care of her patients, she also takes care of her loved ones and friends before herself. She has been raising her twin brother and sister since she was about eight years old. Her brother needs special care and she pays for the facility that he lives in. One of her fellow nurses had a code to determine if the guy was worthy of a relationship. She is asking everyone she knows to use her code and report ...more

I never get tired of my trips to Harper's Crossing and this one was no exception!

Former Marine Andrew Charles Elliott IV, otherwise known as Ace, has recently moved to Harper's Crossing looking for a new start. After a broken engagement and many, many years in the service, he's looking for a new lease on life and when he lays eyes on his new neighbor, he thinks he might have found it in her even though they've never even met.

Nurse Stephanie Holland has always looked out for everyone else. She's

OMG, I loved this book! I read 3-4 books a week and rarely does a book cause me to experience so many emotions. I absolutely fell in love with Ace, a single ex-Marine who at the moment is working for a security company owned by a fellow Marine. He strives for little drama but once he sets his eyes on Stephanie, life as he knew it, is no longer an option.
I wanted to hug Stephanie and tell her what an awesome individual she was. She was forced to raise her younger siblings without the help of her

Ace is so yummy you will want to eat him up with a spoon!

Ace has been burned by love and isn’t willing to partake in anything remotely resembling a relationship. So he can’t explain why one look at the pretty girl next door has him wanting to get to know her better.

Stephanie has had to be an adult from a very young age. When her mom left her to care for her twin siblings she as carried the weight of the world on her solders. Stephanie cannot afford any sort of distractions the first being the

I've read the Crossroads series from the beginning. Ace and Stephanie's story is heartwarming. Stephanie never had a chance to be a child herself because since she was young she's been the caretaker for her younger, twin siblings Simone and Scott. Scott is disabled. Her father abandoned the family and her mother decided she didn't want the responsibility and left the burden of their care to Stephanie. In fact, she eventually took off and left the twins with her. Stephanie, a nurse, works long ...more

All He Needs is the 10th book in the Crossroad Series. The fact that Melanie and Shawna can create 10 books in this series and keep it fresh, sweet, sexy and filled with so many likable characters deserves a standing ovation.

In this book we meet Stephanie who is the most giving and nurturing person not only with her job as a nurse but with her friends and especially her family. Stephanie at an early age has stepped to the plate and taken care of her twins siblings and her mom. She does this

Stephanie is a nurturer. She's taken care of her siblings from basically the moment they were born. Her dad walked out & after a few years, so did her mom. The character of Stephanie is the epitome of a strong loving woman. She managed to become a nurse while taking care of her sister & managing to earn enough to keep her brother in the specialized home he needed. She takes care of everyone except herself.

Ace has been interested in Stephanie since the day he moved in next door. He's a

Everyone needs someone to care for them. In All He Needs it turns out to be two people, Ace and Stepanie. Stephanie has always put her needs aside and took care of everyone else. She spends her days and nights working as a nurse or taking care of siblings, one who is inpatient. Ace sees his sexy neighbor and can't get her out of his mind. Stephanie sees the alpha male neighbor shirtless and working on his bike. Both spend nights dreaming of each other until one fateful day when Ace and Stephanie ...more

The Crossroads series will always hold a special place in my heart. I've followed the series (along with Melanie Shawn's other series) and it seems that each story is better than the last.
Ace and Stephanie's relationship blossoms even though they both try to resist their attraction to each other. Stephanie is a hard working nurse who has not been dealt the best cards in life. She grew up raising her siblings and has dedicated herself to taking care of them while trying to make a life for

Loved, Loved, Loved this latest book by Melanie Shawn. This is only the second book I have read in the Crossroad series and I can't say enough about the characters and the town. It can be read a lone or in order of the series. It is great that I am not lost in the book since I have not read them all. I will definitely be going back to catch up on the rest!!!!
Ace and Stephanie are neighbors who see each other in passing but don't really say much to each other until the Grand Opening of a

Another wonderful story from the writing duo that is Melanie Shawn.

Whenever I delve into a book series, I am always a bit wary. Many of them start out fresh and become stale as the series progresses, making you think – enough already! Then there are the pleasant surprises, where the stories and the writing get better as you roll along, or at the very least stay consistent. The Crossroads series definitely falls into the latter category, with fresh ideas and characters.

Wow each time I read another Crossroads book I find another new book boyfriend. Ace was such a bad-ass but he was just as romantic, sweet, sexy and oh so much more. He treated Stephanie like she was the most important person in this world. Stephanie had so much love in her heart and she put everyone's needs before her own. She was so sweet but also very unsure of herself. Add in all the other Harper Crossing people and Ace and Stephanie`s family you

I loved this book way more that 5 stars! I was beyond thrilled when I knew Ace was getting his own book. He definitely had me curious from his appearances in previous books. This book definitely did not disappoint. Melanie did a fantastic job with his and Stephanie's characters. Ace is the perfect dark knight character. He is a little mysterious and a little standoffish. He isn't close with his family. He doesn't really let anyone get too close, especially after the things that have happened to ...more

Another addition to the Crossroads series by Melanie Shawn and as always it was great! Stephanie is used to taking care of everything including herself. It's all she's ever known since she was a child. She not only raised herself but also her younger sibling twins one of which is special needs. Along comes Ace, ex military turned security specialist and business partner in the local restaurant, and Stephanie's new neighbor. They have an attraction that won't be denied but Stephanie is too busy ...more

I just love the Crossroads series. Every story that is written is just completely it's own, yet just feels so familiar and just sucks you in right from the beginning. The characters in this book were so well written and made you feel all the emotions the whole way through. Stephanie is such a strong person and overcame ever obstacle in her way.

This was such a fun, sexy, sweet read with a bit of mystery thrown in to it.

Ace and Stephanie are seriously the perfect couple. Their personalities compliment each other so well, and Ace is the epitome of sexy with a huge side of protectiveness. Stephanie has been kinda stepped on all her life, and I love that it didn't affect her attitude towards life too much. The anxiety I felt towards the end of the book was crazy (and I couldn't figure out who I wanted to smack the most). The authors gave

If anyone deserves a happily ever after it is Stephanie, the main female character in this book.

So good. I couldn't wait for this story once I meet Ace and Stephanie. This romance is full of ups and downs, miscommunications, loss, manipulations, but above all else love. This story isn't just about Ace and Stephanie though. There are many key players that make up their lives. Ace might have had an easier childhood growing up, but his family has there own issues. Stephanie had a hard childhood, but above all of that she has her siblings.

Every time I read a book by Melanie Shawn I think there is no way I will love it as much as the last book I read but yet I find myself unable to put this down until I finished it. Ace is a hot likable hero who is not looking for any romantic entanglements after a failed relationship. Stephanie is a nurse who takes care of everyone except herself. They meet and have crazy chemistry. Will Stephanie realize she does not have to do it all alone? A very enjoyable well written addition to the ...more

I absolutely love reading anything that comes from Melanie Shawn. The stories draw you in and keep you entertained throughout the duration.
I love the romance that budded between Ace and Stephanie. Both of them had difficult things in their past that they needed to overcome, but in their relationship with each other, they were able to become stronger individuals.
The foreshadowing of the next relationship to come was clever.
This book shows that fate always has it's way of working out!

More like a 3.5. It had its moments but I couldn't get into it like the other books in this series. Maybe because the 2 main family are done and it's just their friends now not sure but I'll have to see how the next book goes.
