When I first started reading this I was thinking I'd be ending up in the Box of Shame because I really wasn't feeling the love. Rico was an arse and I loved Adam and was getting all irritated about how he was being treated.

This went on for some time but then, around the halfway mark, things started to change and Rico slowly started to worm his way into my affections. He was still being an arse but his rationale for being so started to become more sympathetic.

Fortunately, it also happened ar

Felice Stevens really surprised me with this wonderful story. I was impressed with how she brought Rico around. Even more impressed with Adam and the way he embraced who he was. But, thrilled with how they both came to terms with their problems and found out that it’s easier to stand together than fight their feelings apart.

Adam was cute when he was nervous. He was hot in the bedroom. Adorable facing his fellow firefighters about Rico. His loyalty to family was amazing. And, his love for Rico wa

I am slowly reading my way through all the books that Ms. Stevens has written and she has yet to disappoint. I was particularly looking forward to reading this book since "Learning to Love", Gideon and Jonah's story was the first book of her's that I read and definitely one of her best. I loved Rico from that book and couldn't wait to read his story, especially after it had been hinted at in the 2nd part of this series "The Way to His Heart". All I can say is "Well Done Ms. Stevens... Very Very ...more

I read this one as a stand alone but did not have any trouble getting to know the characters from the previous books who are side characters in this one.

Rico Estevez is Gideon's partner in their catering business. He is a work-a-holic, private, closed off, and not looking for a relationship. He comes from a conservative family with Cuban heritage and his father is a politician. So Rico is not out to his father or family and just goes about life with discreet, casual flings. But when he saw Adam

This was so worth the wait! I was so looking forward to reading Rico’s story after finishing book 1 and this was absolutely more than worth it.
I loved the connection he had with Adam right from the get go. At the end of Learning to Love, you could feel the chemistry there even in that short piece. I have to admit it was a struggle to not dislike Rico in the beginning while it is so easy to like and love Adam.
Let me include the part that troubled me most. Despite understanding Rico’s r

Originally reviewed at Sinfully.

Finally!! I feel like it’s been so long since we first met Adam Barton in Beyond the Surface. Then he showed up again in Learning to Love where we met Gideon’s secretive friend and business partner Rico (this story definitely works as a standalone though). I always worry that my expectations are too high when I’m waiting for a particular story, but I can absolutely say it was well worth the wait for these two. Their chemistry jumps off the page from the start and

Earlier this year I read The Shape of You by Felice Stevens and instantly fell in love. I wanted more of the author’s work. I wanted to read more of the wonderful stories. Thus, I jumped at All or Nothing as soon as the chance came about. I may not have loved All or Nothing as much as I loved The Shape of You, but I still found it to be a wonderful read.

Despite being the third book in the Together series, All or Nothing works perfectly fine as a standalone novel. I do now wish to go and read Lea

This isn’t just a love story, Adam and Rico offer a glimpse at an imperfect world where LGBTQ people still struggle to come out and, those that do, still face persecution. I enjoy getting wrapped up into Felice’s world. Her writing brings the world in which her MCs live to life, so that you find yourself immersed in their world and feel like you’re a part of it. Adam and Rico’s story is no different.

Both Rico and Adam have successful careers, neither one is looking for a relationship despite the

This story has something I really love in a book—true, limitless passion between it’s main characters, Adam and Rico. As in you should keep a fire extinguisher on hand every time the two of them are on the page together, because you’ll definitely need it.

Both Adam and Rico are guys who are not looking for anything permanent, just to have fun and fool around (and we all know how characters like that wind up right?). When they first get together, things between them are absolutely explosive—they s

Uhhhhh yummy. A firefighter and a chef. Have I died and gone to heaven?
Felice Stevens makes me wonder with her new novel All or Nothing.

Rico Estevez is living in constant fear of his, running for senator, father finding out he is gay. He is only hooking up with one-night stands and is not ready to commit to anything else.
Adam Barton is a fireman that is out and isn’t ashamed of it. He is also very interested in Rico, and they hook up. After their night together they both realize that

I literally just finished reading this book and even if this review ends up a bit messy I need to write it down straight away or there'll be no sleep for me tonight.

Ever since Gideon and Jonah's book I've been looking forward to Rico's story. I was so excited when Felice announced that it was just around the corner.

When it landed on my kindle I paused my reading of another book to dive into this one. Honestly, I could have finished it sooner but I stalled as I didn't want it to end.

I fell in love with his book and the two guys Adam and Rico. the writing had me captivated and interested. My heart kept rooting that they would get their act together and make it work.. and it happened.
Julie   (*Happily Ever Chapter*)
This one just wasn't for me, I guess. I didn't like Rico's behavior towards Adam and it made it hard for me to root for them as a couple. It took a long time for Rico to start changing the awful way he was treating Adam, and by that point, if I was Adam I would have tried to move on. I also hated that every time he decided to push Adam away h e ended up making out with a different person. He was a very hard character to like!! The turnaround in Rico's father's feelings about him coming out felt ...more

I Floved this book! So I'm giving it five glorious stars. It was swoon worthy, hot & a little bit angsty. It wouldn't be a Felice book if I didn't cry a few times. Had to take a break at one time so I could calm my tears... I so loved Adam & Rico(even though I wanted to kick his butt a time or two). It so worth a read!
Barb ~rede-2-read~
A sweet, easy to read love story. This one features Gideon and Jonah from Learning to Love and Gideon's work partner, Rico. Adam, the fireman who was on hand for the fire that occurred in the first story, becomes Rico's one-night stand and then much, much more.

Both men carry a burden-- Adam's is the death of his teenage boyfriend, Wayne, who committed suicide when his family wouldn't accept him. And Rico's is a politically ambitious father who fights against LGBTQ rights and who doesn't even kn

Every once in a while I read a story that makes my heart break. Felice has given me one of those books with this story. We have Adam and Rico, 2 men who have survived heartbreak and have come out the other side but not living their best life. You know from reading about their pasts that it will take a special person to help them be whole again. The pull towards each other is instant and if they can both move past their barriers they can be so good together.  I rooted for their happiness from the ...more

This is the first book that I have read by this author and all though it is book three in the Together Series, it can be read as a standalone. I did not feel as though I was missing out on anything by not reading the prior two books, if anything, I now need to find the time to read more of Felice's work.

I know I have said it a million times, well maybe not quite that many, but enough times anyway, I am a sucker for a good M/M romance and I love getting the opportunity to read work by new-to-me

I fall each and every time for Felice's boys! In All or Nothing, NYC Fireman Adam Barton stole my heart. He's the perfect combination of boyishly sweet and tender, mixed with sexy, domineering alpha. He had me swooning all over the place and heating up! When he meets closed off, workaholic Rico Esteves, he knocks him right off his feet. Their undeniable animalistic attraction is intense. (Very hot sex scenes!!!) They give into their carnal desires with no strings attached... Forming a mutual fri ...more

A Joyfully Jay review.

All or Nothing is the third book in the Together series, but fine to read as a standalone.

I liked the story, though I wasn’t wild about Rico for roughly 75% of the book. I’m not one to complain about sexytimes, but a lot of it didn’t engage me. I think I had a disconnect because Adam and Rico couldn’t stop telling themselves they weren’t building an emotional connection while they were dropping into bed and making passionate love at every conceivable moment. So,

It all started with a redheaded fireman he couldn’t get out of his mind. And just like that, Felice locked me in again. Rico and Adam, featured main characters, were two lost men drawn to each other through want and need. Yet, they denied everything due to fright.

Felice does not pull punches with her men. They may be strong internally and fight for their freedom, but they are human and their weakness are felt and understood.

Once in a while, when you read a book, and you can't stop your epigastrium from aching, and wanted to dive into it and solving the problem, and makes everything's right. This book, a story about Adam and Rico did that to me.

Secrets can be a real burden in our life of we keep it to ourselves and not letting it out and solved.
Adam and Rico kept their own secrets for so long, and when they're met each other, and falling in love, those secrets holding them back to be happy.

Sweet romance.

Adam is a great caring guy. Sexy fireman who is trying to move on from the past and guilt he has from it. He doesn’t feel he can do a relationship so meeting Rico another non relationship guy to him is good. Only they do fall for one another and they need to fight to be together. Or Rico does for Adam believes in him.

Rico is the chef that is not rocking the family boat. He is a talented and amazing guy but afraid of losing the family he has left. He sees that his dad isn’t exactly

My heart hurt for the characters with the way they had to hide the way they felt and who held there affections but behind closed doors . Some of the characters I liked right away but others it me time to worm up to them overall this was a great story with semi likable characters .

However, let it be known that once again Felice Stevens has not disappointed, finally giving us Rico's love story, and oh what a story it is.

Felice Stevens always take me on emotional journey and this one was no different. However, I will admit that this one took a little longer to get to the happily ever after, because of the behavior of Rico Estevez, the chef and co-owner of who is Gideon's partner and best friend, and who we first met in Learning to Love. Rico refused to completely admit his feelings for Adam Barton, a firefighter, who we initially in Nick and Julian's story, Beyond the Surface, until the very last minute because ...more

I have always been a romantic at heart. I believe that while life is tough, there is always a happy ending around the corner, My characters have to work for it, however. Like life in NYC, nothing comes easy and that includes love.

I live in New York City with my husband and two children and hopefully soon a cat of my own. My day begins with a lot of caffeine and ends with a glass or two of red wine
