Coming face-to-face with my past changes EVERYTHING.

I’m at the top of my game. All my struggles have finally paid off. Life should be great.

I mean, life is great.

Except for the fact that I can’t stop thinking of her. The woman who mangled my heart into a bloody pulp and never looked back.

If I could free myself of our shared memories, my future would be golden.

*****Spoilers Ahead*****

Since I knew how this shit was going to go probably before the author decided to write it. I’m not going to rate it. Not because I want to spare the author’s feelings, I really could care less what she’s going to feel when and if she read my review.

Anyway.. Let’s begin, shall we?

Hero is engaged to his costar, if you read my review of book 1 then you know he was starting to have feelings for his co-star until his drugged up ex fuck buddy aka heroine overdosed and he ran t

After that ending in All We Were, I was expecting a whole more angst in All We Are, but to my surprise this book turned a lot more kind of a slow burn than I expected! I loved it!

I wont say much about the story in this one, because everything I might say it will spoil the surprise of reading it and discover for yourself the beautiful love story in this duet.

I've said before and say again:
*ARC received in exchange of an honest opinion***

All We Are really surprised me. The story took a whole other direction than what I was expecting after the end of All We Were and I liked that.

This second book in the duet is less angsty than the first, but I liked the change of pace and the change in the story. The story turned into a second chance romance and one I enjoyed reading.

Jimmy went through a LOT in the first book taking care of Lilah and now, years later, he has everything set in his l

I wonder if this kind of plot is the only one author know to write about. I always thought they had a wonderful imagination, they were always thinking about amazing stories about love but it’s been a while since an author wrote a worthy of my time, intelligent and captivating story. #sorrynotsorry

A book I anticipated for as long as the wait to receive it, once it hit my kindle I dived in and was reaching the finishing line quicker than I would have liked. These authors don’t create short reads but they have the ability to spin a brutally emotional and raw tale that ensnares the reader and makes time fly faster than normal.

Review by Jen Skewes

I could not wait for the conclusion to Lilah and Jimmy's story. especially after that cliffhanger that left me with broken heart. I think I was just as broken as these two characters were after what had happened. I think in my mind I had an idea as to where this story would go, but while one part may have been true the rest of this story was not how I thought things would go. And for the record I am not complaining at all. It had drama and angst and as I started read

I loved everything about All We Are by Elisabeth Grace and Michelle Lynn!!

By the time I finished the first book, All We Were I was completely invested in Lilah and Jimmy. Their tremulous relationship put me through the ringer, but through it all I always felt their love. Egh, they were so close to having it all. I desperately needed them to get their HEA. Needless to say the end of the book ripped my heart out! I was literally distraught. I couldn't imagine what book two would have in store for

Omggggg this story!!!! Just WOW. All We Are by Elisabeth Grace and Michelle Lynn is the STUNNING conclusion to the Ex-Factor Duet. It cannot be read as a stand-alone, so you’ll need to read All We Were first. I had been waiting to get my hands on this story for what seemed like forever. And it seriously was so worth the wait. After that ending, I really had no idea where this story was going to go. Full of second chances, regrets, and forgiveness, All We Are was so beautifully written and

"You cannot run from your past."

Jimmy had his heart broken once, but he recovered. After witnessing Lilah's alleged betrayal, he had a difficult time. Six years later, his career has consolidated and he is about to get married. However, the shadows and doubts of the past still haunt him and make him seek Lilah for closure.

5 Star Review All We Are (Ex-Factor #2) by Elisabeth Grace & Michelle Lynn

Wow, where do I start? This is one of those little gems that you hope you to find. All We Are had me from the first chapter and I was riveted until the last. This was a book which I highly anticipated after reading book 1 and I was not disappointed with the it in any way. This is a great conclusion to a duet which has become one of my favourite reads so far this year.

This is the conclusion in the Ex Factor duet. All we Were left me hanging wanting to find out more. This story is a great slow burn ,second chance love story. Six years later Lilah and Jimmy have to face their past to finally move on. They soon learn that trying to forget the connection between them and everything they’ve shared will not be easy.

All We Were was an emotional rollercoaster that left me dying to read All We Are. I couldn’t wait to find out what was going to happen with Lilah and Jimmy.

With that explosive ending in book one that gave a blow to our hearts, this wasn’t as heavy on the angst, but the emotional aspect was in full force.

I loved watching Lilah’s maturity and seeing her strength and growth.

All We Are, the second book in the Ex Factor Duet, is an emotional rollercoaster! This is the conclusion to All We Were, the story of Jimmy and Lilah, six years into the future. Jimmy needs closure and to do that, he’ll need to show up on Lilah’s doorstep and get answers….answers she’s not expecting to give. This story was not what I was expecting. Where book one was full of angst, this was full of a beautiful love story/slow burn! I won’t say much more so I don’t ruin the story but you definite ...more

I was lucky enough to receive an ARC of this book, and I devoured it in mere hours. I was riveted, unable to do anything else until I found out what happened. There’s no way to write anything without spoiling something, so just read it. (After you read book one, it’s not a standalone). It was everything you want in a book and then some. The angst, the push and pull, the true love, the other things I can’t say for fear of spoiling it, It’s on my top of list for this year, for sure.

This is the second book in the Ex-Factor Duet which was an emotional beautiful story about first loves and second chances. Jimmy and Lilah's story continues six years later with numerous jaw-dropping and shocking moments that will have you enraptured with each page it will become unputdownable! I absolutely adored this duet and would recommend this beautiful story to anyone who loves an amazing second chance romance!

After the ending of All We Were I couldn't wait to get my hands on this book.

I was devastated the way things ended for Jimmy and Lilah in the first book. But in the six years that pass before Jimmy and Lilah come face to face again. Things have change tremendously.

Will they be able to find closure?

Will they be able to move on?

This book was another emotional read and a great ending to the duet.

“She tastes like heaven. Like home.”

Ever since the scream-inducing cliffy at the end of the first installment of the EX-FACTOR duet, co-written by the exceptionally talented Elisabeth Grace and Michelle Lynn, I have been waiting with bated breath for the long-awaited conclusion. And it sure did not disappoint! ALL WE ARE consumed every part of me, put my heart through the wringer and healed it in the most WONDROUS OF WAYS!!

Confronting the past and making peace with it sounds like a good plan, even a necessary one when it comes to moving on from a multitude of bad memories, but it’s so much more complicated than most people believe, especially when it comes to the pain and the heartache that people experienced - feelings that may have receded but even dormant, they still can scar and fester like an open wound, which is exactly where Jimmy and Lilah are when the second book in their duet begins.

Excellent Second Book!

After All we Were, I wasn't sure if these ladies were going to be able to "bring it" for All we Are to my satisfaction, but they did and then some. I was instantly hooked on the first book and this one was no exception. Jimmy and Lilah didn't disappoint. This review may be vague as to protect the storylines.

If you saw my review for All We Were, then you know that I am not a fan of duets. I am pleased to say that this one is done well and I am so glad that I got to read both books in the set.
All We Are completes the story created in All We Were (Book 1), but is not just more of the same. In this concluding installment, we catch up with Lilah and James six years in the future. While authors Grace and Lynn let us know what happened in that time frame, the time hop is what really made this work for me
