All We Want… wow. This one hit me right in the feels. I laughed, I cried, and I loved it so much. Sometimes the books you relate to the most are the ones that hit you the hardest. I’ve always loved Luke and Tessa as a couple. They love each other fiercely and even through this struggle, they have each others backs.

A great short story, following up on Tessa and Luke from book 2 in the Alabama Summer series. This one can not be read as a stand-alone...You need to read "All I Want" first.

I really enjoyed reading this one, even though I had to suspend my disbelief a bit. I have always liked all of the characters in this series but Luke and Reed are most definitely my favorite "Bama Boys".

It was good catching up with all of them and I am very glad that Tessa and Luke finally got their HEA.

a beautiful addition to the series in general and a heart wrenching, sometimes really saddening but beautiful homage to one of my fave couples in this series; Luke & Tessa.

Seeing them living through their own nightmares and working towards a HEA was intense and emotional, especially considering I'm living a lot of it myself as well at the moment. This story hits close to home which is probably why I've been an emotional mess right from the start. But I couldn't just not read, you

This series is one of my favorite so I know what Luke and Tessa went through until the got the family the wanted. This reading was so sweet and heartbreaking at the same time. I loved their bond and how powerful their love was to overcome everything even the the only thing that was missing from their lives. So as much as I liked how things turned out, I think some of the events could have been avoided, some parts were over the top and only broke Luke and Tessa's hearts more th

This was a sweet little novella detailing the struggles Tessa and Luke are going through to have a child. I enjoyed it a lot. You will need to read their individual full-length book before going into this one, though.
All We Want was J Daniels’ sixth book in her Alabama Summer series. It was the continuation of Luke and Tessa’s story in their pursuit to expand their family.

It was a mixture of emotional and sweet. Daniels reminded us why we loved Tessa and Luke. They were each other’s other half of crazy and balance. They click like no other couple in the series and it was perfect for them. Daniels took us through their fight for pregnancy and beyond. It was a real life issue that couples experience daily and

I can’t get enough of the Bama series and was pretty excited to read this novella about Tessa and Luke. There’s no doubt that they’re crazy about one another. Their love is truly forever . They’re struggling to get pregnant and have been for the past books. It’s been difficult following them and the author captures and depicts it with so much emotion that my heart broke for them numerous times. I enjoyed their journey cause it and their reactions felt real. It takes a toll on a marria

For those who are planning to read this one, I suggest reading All I Want FIRST. This is the second book in Tessa and Luke's love story and if you read them out of order you won't get the full effect of their story. With that, this is an emotional story and it deals with infertility. The journey was a hard one to read about because it affects so many. J. Daniels clearly poured her heart out with this novella and I

YESSSS!! This is exactly just what I needed and have been waiting for for my babies—Luke and Tessa! These two have always been my favorite, and when I got wind that we’ll finally be getting more of them, my heart just about flew off the rails. J. Daniels has absolutely granted our wishes with All We Want and gave us the perfect sequel we’ve all been yearning for.

This was such a wonderful surprise. I was so happy to get another glimpse into the BAMA life, and check on all the amazing people form this series. Also thank you J. Daniels for the emotions.

I wanted to write this review, and put this post up yesterday but I honestly needed a bit to process all the feelings that I had surrounding this book, and emotions that were coursing through my body. This book hit me right in the gut, and was so spot on with the feelings that can come with the struggle of having a baby, that I wept through a majority of the pages. Many people don’t know because it’s just not something that I speak of often, but my husband and I struggled for three years to have ...more

The Alabama Summer series was one of my first interconnected standalone series that I ever read. I love the family feeling of the all the books, the ribbing, the support, that drama that comes with a family is what constantly brings me back. I love this crew, and Luke and Tessa are one of my absolute favorite couples from the whole series.

With two words, Luke Evans stole my reader heart. ASK. ME. That is seriously all it took. Two words and I was a swooning mess. My love for him o

I think we all had been missing the Bama world. And we all wanted more Luke and for him and Tessa to have babies. That's what this book was all about - Luke and Tessa. And babies.

And omg you guys it was amazing. I had missed this bunch so damn much. I had forgotten how fun these two were and how hot too. I loved getting reacquainted with it all. But my damn this book was not for the light of heart, it was pretty emotionaç and a tiny bit hard to read at times and even so it was

I'll forever marvel at the way J. Daniels manages to skillfully and effortlessly write this series. As with the others that came before it, All We Want was the perfect addition to the Alabama Summer Series. It's smart and hella sexy, but it's also funny and deeply, heartbreakingly emotional.

That Ms. Daniels can move between those emotions, those feelings, so seamlessly . . . amazing.

This series is a favorite of mine, and the continuation of Luke and Tessa's story was beautiful. With cameos from

I can’t even, y’all! J. Daniels hit it out of the park with ALL WE WANT. She easily and effortlessly goes from romantic comedy to deeply emotional with the turn of a page and it was a beautifully written story. Well done and worth the wait!

I. CAN’T. STOP. SOBBING. All We Want was so beautiful and heart-wrenching and special. The Bama gang is one of my all-time faves to read about, and J never disappoints, but WOW... Luke and Tessa’s novella was on a different level. Boy did J Daniels deliver with this one— I’m not sure when I will recover.

OH MY fucking GOD! I'm not crying YOU'RE crying. Ugh, All We Want has literally broken and consumed me in the BEST possible ways. Tessa and Luke will forever hold such a special place in my heart. I literally have TEARS in my eyes writing this. Holy shit, what is happening to me?


All We Want is EVERYTHING. I didn't think it'd be possible to love Tessa and Luke even MORE, but it's happened. I don't even know what to say at this point. I'll just wait a few days and

This series is one of those that you just never want to end, the characters have become like family and you never want to have to read that final chapter. I was so excited for All We Want, more time with Luke and Tessa and this book delivered in spades. In saying that, this book was emotional, I cried and I don't just mean here and there I mean nearly at every chapter. The tears I shed varied from tears of happiness to tears of loss. I jumped on this roller coaster of a journey with these two an ...more

5 Fantastic Stars!!

I have been waiting...and maybe stalking a bit....for Luke and Tessa to finally get a family that they so desperately love. They will get a baby right? OMG, my eyes were wet so many times while reading this story. There is so much heartache, and so much sadness.

Tessa is so frustrated and she feels her inability to get pregnant is her fault, even though there is no proof of that. Luke is so upset that Tessa has so many feelings of inadequacy and all he wants

All We Want is Luke and Tessa's follow up novella. I loved it! It was a little emotional and beautiful. This is one of my favorite series and this novella just made me love it more! Definitely recommend this series. I love Luke and Tessa!

I honestly don't have words. I'm just sitting here crying all the tears! Like, I feel stupid for crying this much. But this book was EVERYTHING. Everything I wanted and needed for Tessa and Luke, even if I didn't know it! Thank you J. Daniels for giving us this wonderful, amazing, heartfelt surprise!

J. Daniels never fails to brings all of the emotions to a story, whether sadness, joy, love of family, and more so it’s no surprise that she’s a NY Times and USA Today best-selling author. Out of this Alabama Summer series, Ben and Mia have always been my favorites but I love each character and couple in different ways.

Tessa is such a spitfire and a good friend and sister. When I first read about her and Luke in the second book of the series, it was sad when they were apart but they worked out

There has never been a series that I go back to over and over like J. Daniels Alabama Summer series. Every single book, every single couple just absolutely takes my breath away and I'm drawn into a world that only Ms. Daniels can write. Every single books is sexy, funny and emotional and leaves you with a smile on your face and All We Want was no exception.

It was nice to finally catch up with Luke and Tessa and learn that all they want is a family but all they really need is each other. This sto

Tessa and Luke were a lot of fun to read about in All I Want and when we saw them in the other books. They didn't have the easiest start, but it's clear they love each other. So this made me excited that J. Daniels continues these stories, so we can see how things continue for all of our beloved characters.

Tessa and Luke just want a child to add to their family, but it's been a year and still nothing. That makes hearing that nothing is physically wrong so much harder to hear. This book is so emo
