Hunter Cabot deeply loves two things: the international tea company he’s helped his father build, and his wife, Sara. From the moment he first saw her wide smile on their college campus years ago, Hunter fell hard. Yet now, with other family members pushing to sell the thr

All We Knew by Jamie Beck is an emotional and heartfelt read.

The writing is well done, the storyline brought out the feels and the characters Hunter and Sara were passionate people who needed to take a step back from real life and remember that without honest communication their relationship would never survive everything that had been thrown at them.


All We Knew is the second book from The Cabots series by Jamie Beck, each book can be read as a standalone and I highly recommend

It’s too heavy, u r telling us our daily life, how we struggling, how bad the life is, how worse the business, family, society, world are.

I read because I want to escape from the world, to have something that I never will have in the real life, then imagine fairy tale will happen on me some day some time, then at least I will have hours good time in my ugly life.

But the book is real, a mirror shown my life which i seen every day.

This wasn’t exactly a romance novel. More like women’s fiction. I read for escape and this book was more about falling out of love than into it. It’s about saving a marriage where most of the book it was falling apart. In fact maybe 5% of that is happiness. So must so it felt like the ending was rushed. But seeing that it was my assumption that this was romance I won’t base my rating on the fact that it wasn’t. The writing was good. The characters were colorful and real, but a little too real fo ...more

All We Knew is the 2nd book in The Cabots series. I think it would be fine to read as a stand-alone.

Hunter Cabot deeply loves two things: the international tea company he’s helped his father build since he was in middle school, and his wife, Sara, who he fell in love with at first sight. Now it looks like everything he loves is falling apart. His father is looking to sell the company after promising Hunter that it would be his one day to lead. The failure to start a family and the stress of work

He has worked alongside his father since he was in junior high. His dad promised him to one day hand the company over to him to continue the legacy.

Oh my god, reading this book stressed me the fuck out. There was constant tension between Hunter and Jenna, Hunter and Sara, Hunter and his dad, Gentry and Jenna, etc. This book was definitely not an escape from reality, that's for damn sure. There were several sweet, tender moments between Sara and Hunter, but the many passive-aggressive comments and misunderstandings/misinterpreted conversations that lead them to despair over the state of their marriage made my head hurt. I hated Jenna in pret ...more

I love this author, but I couldn't even finish this book. Some of the characters are the most annoying depictions of humans I've read. Gentry is a pseudo adult and one of the whiniest least mature women except for Sara who needs to just stop talking. Can she ever think of anyone but herself or what she wants? Does she even care about what her husband wants even a little bit? No.... Ugh. If I were her I might knock myself unconscious! Just can't finish as my head is going to explode from the ridi ...more

I was given a free ecopy of this book from @Netgalley and @AmazonPublishing #partner for an honest review. This is the second book in The Cabot series but can be read as a stand alone. As with the first book the writing is good as is the character development. I thought Hunter’s character was the most well written. Sara’s character is also well developed but I think she was portrayed as a little too kind and sweet. I also would have liked to learn a little more about Colby and Alec, the main cha ...more

This isn’t terrible but I’m just not interested enough to carry on and I don’t want to get into another reading slump by forcing myself to finish.

I loved the angst from Hunter and Sara’s relationship but the plot wasn’t going anywhere. They would argue then leave things unresolved and then we’d get 5 different scenes about the family business that I just don’t care about. I skimmed a lot of those.

Also this book is stressing me out with the drama between all the characters. Sara is mad

I received this ARC from Net Galley for an honest review. I wish that I could give this book more than 5 stars, it was simply amazing. I was constantly on pins and needles or sobbing over the events occurring in this book. This heartbreaking story of so much loss was so beautifully written it made your heartache for Sara & Hunter, as we watch them go through one heartbreaking loss after another. Add to the sadness of Sara & Hunter was the distance between Hunter & his father over the differences ...more

I absolutely love stories that show us what happens after the HEA, or after the proposal and during the tenure of a marriage. ALL WE KNEW shows us that sometimes being in a committed marriage isn't a failsafe, and hearts can break even when love abounds.
Must, must read.

This book was fascinating! It kept me riveted until the very end. All the feels are here, elation, despair, hope, anger and desire of revenge. In the previous book, I loved Hunter and Sara, so I was very happy to read their story. It was as angsty as the previous one, with the happy addition that the characters in this one are much nicer, and the general vibe is happier with a side of angst.

Hunter and Sara have been married for fifteen years and have had a fantastic marriage. Hunter is very invo

4.5*s of moving, emotional and complicated real life

This is the second book in the series. I would definitely recommend that you read them in order, as you will understand the family dynamics better, and meet Hunter and Sara before the story focusses on them. It is also a very good emotional read about Colby's past, present and future.

What Ms Beck has a great talent for as a writer, is getting under the skin of the lead

As a birth mother myself, parts of this were very hard to read... But that is actually saying something positive about Beck's writing. I think about my daughter somewhere out there every day, but I DON'T often relive the difficulty of making the choice I made and sticking to it despite the intense love I felt and desire to keep that sweet little bundle. I don't often let myself acknowledge the fear that I gave her up to offer her stability I couldn't provide, but her adoptive paren

I received a free copy of this book to read and review for Wicked Reads.

This book was a true and honest look at relationships and how, at times, love does not conquer all. I thought the emotions portrayed by both Hunter and Sara were genuine and real. Each person had an unique view of how other's behavior affected them yet not seeming to realize that their behavior could be hurtful to the other.

Seeing Hunter and Sara work through their problems, the realness of it all, came through loud and

Why in hell is this book labeled a romance?!?! GAH! This gut wrenching, heartbreaking story of family dysfunction and infertility had me unable to turn my Kindle off. If you’re looking for a fun, lighthearted, amusing story about a couple finding their way back to each other, you’re going to be sorely disappointed. What you’ll read instead is a page-turning, angst-filled drama of epic proportions.

I have so many mixed emotions after reading this story of Sara and Hunter. There were times I was happy with what I was reading; times when I was so sad with what I was reading; and times when I wanted to throw the book out the window. That is in no way a reflection of the writing of Jamie Beck. If anything, I think that proves that she told their story perfectly.

This was an amazing, raw and emotional journey unlike most romances that I've read. One of the biggest differences is that we already start our with our couple, Hunter & Sara, married. They have been trying unsuccessfully to have a baby thorough IVF, so naturally there is a great deal of stress on their marriage. Add to that the changes being brought up at the family business Hunter runs with his father and things are quite strained for these two people who clearly love each other. Can Sara and ...more

His Father is thinking of selling the company and Hunter has to come to a decision, whether to go find another job or go along with his Father. He decides to fight instead.

All We Knew is a wonderfully crafted story of a couple's emotional journey through the highs and lows of the struggle with infertility. Never is the love between Sara and Hunter questioned. They've been together for 14 years but never have they been tested the way they are being tested now. First the infertility which is breaking apart Sara's dreams then Hunter who has put his heart and soul into the family tea import business discovers that his father is entertaining a buyout offer he's furious ...more

I wondered what was going on with Sarah and Hunter when I was reading the first book in the series Before I Knew (Cabot, #1) Definitely recommend this book to read.

I find the opening of the book heavy with emotion and a struggle for the couple Sarah and Hunter. ... his work schedule and the difficulty for Sarah to get pregnant.
