Book 2 will NOT disappoint!! I love how Lauren and Max's storyline seamlessly picked up from that of All I Know. Even better, these fresh characters were completely distinct from the couple in book 1 (nothing is worse than cookie-cutter characters + plots in series). The strife that Lauren goes through as she grapples with her online life and reality is beyond relatable. I laughed, fanned myself from the heat of the steamy scenes, and finished the book wanting more! I can't wait for the next ins ...more

“Welcome back to Paradise Beach. The Hastings brothers are waiting for you.

Tamara Lush did it again, she wrote a masterpiece. A mind-blowing, addictive, funny and romantic story with the perfect mix of erotism. I highly recommend yourself to be prepared cause once you start this book you aren’t gonna stop until you reach the end.

Paradise Beach is celebrating a marriage. You’re officially invited to Kate and Damien' weeding. Families and friends, welcome to the resort.

I loved the story of Lauren the best friend of (Kate) from the first book. I love the way that Lauren starts out saying that she doesn't do relationships to seeing the best man nude and then just completely falling for him. I was saddened by her relationship with Max at one point but glad everything worked out in the end. I love the fact that Lauren is a social media influencer.

As with all of Tamara's books, I loved this one and I can honestly say I'm never left disappointed!

Giving this book 4.5 stars, actually.

* Warning: contains spoilers ahead, so back out now while you can ;) *

This book is a story about family, friends, love, life, and highlight of the book is the story about the best-friend of the bride and the brother of the groom—who happened to be the maid of honor, and the best-man at the wedding. At first, you’d think it was that typical wedding weekend fling story, but you’d be surprised!

Okay, here it goes. I love the story, the continuation from Kate an

I really liked Lauren and Max's story! This was even better than the first book! The Hastings brothers have me falling in love with the whole family. Kate & Damien's wedding is the back from for Lauren and Max's story. I must say, I kinda loved their story !

All I Want was a very good and enjoyable story.
While I was reading the previous book I thought the older of Hastings' brothers was cold-hearted and a little too snobby for my liking, on the contrary I've completely changed my mind about him after this novel...maybe he did need of the right woman to show his true colours.

Lauren and Max are both invited at Kate and Damien wedding at Paradise Beach resort,the first is the bride's best friend and the latter the groom's older brother.They are a litt

Once these two are clothed and meet they are attracted and have a “wedding weekend fling”. Lauren breaks an ankle before the wedding and ends up staying longer than expected. Can these ...more

Could not wait to read more about Kate and Damien, and we got more with Lauren and Max!! Lauren and Max’s story is instalust and chemistry that builds into something more. They both breakdown each other’s walls and realise that they are both more than the other thought. These two both have many issues to overcome to make a relationship work, but when they do….. it is all worth it!!
4.5... Amazing stars... OH I loved Max and Lauren's story. He is one dirty talker that makes you smile at the way he cares for Lauren in her time of need ;)..

Hot fun in the sun. All I Want is a heart scorcher. Lauren and Max aim to stop a wedding. What they don't expect is the attraction that sparks between them. Funny, flirty and spicy collide in the most unpredictably, delightful way.

As with the first book in this series, Tamara Lush did not disappoint! This book was hot and sexy, and I enjoyed every minute of it. I am excited for the next book in the series. So glad I picked up that 1st book!!

Loved Max and Laurens story. Could not put the book down.
I have become completely immersed in this series! I love the Hastings siblings and the people they bring into their world. We were introduced to Max and Lauren a little in Damien and Kate’s book, All I Know. Max was the jerk oldest brother who was skeptical about their relationship from the beginning. Lauren was Kate’s best friend who travels the world as a social media influencer, quite possibly everyone’s dream job. They seem totally different from each other but their instant attraction was v ...more

I couldn’t put down All I Want by Tamara Lush. I had to read what was happening with Kate & Damien, but also Lauren and how her stay unfolded. Tamara Lush has a flair for her descriptive story telling beach style and I truly hope there is more to the Paradise Beach Series.
Lauren the nomad is quick to try and help her best friend Kate, but there is a longing that she has, but with a faux pas mishap at her friend’s dinner party, the man of her dreams, can she find the solace and the true life she

I'm really enjoying this series from Tamara Lush, this is the second Paradise Beach book that I've read in the last few days and I don't think that it will be the last. While the first book focused on Damian and Kate who fall in love after reconnecting years after they knew each other at high school, this second book is about Damian's brother Max and Kate's best friend Lauren.
Max is a workaholic who owns a real estate business in New York. Lauren is a social media influencer. After an accident a

I absolutely love this book, the second in Tamara Lush's Paradise Beach series. The female MC, Lauren, is this amazingly complicated strong heroine who also has a very vulnerable side. She travels the world as a social media influencer, and it was really fun getting a look at that job and lifestyle - let's just say it's not all fun and glamor, and behind the face Lauren show to the world there's some real anxiety and a good bit of loneliness. She's my ideal heroine - someone who is used to solvi ...more

The second part of the Paradise Beach series is actually partly about the same story as All I Know, only from the perspective of Lauren (Kate's BFF) and Max (Damien's brother).
When Lauren gets a Skypecall from Kate that she is getting married in three weeks, Lauren knows something is wrong. Kate even took longer to decide which coffee machine to buy for their shared room, so this can't be Kate's own decision.
Therefore Lauren packs her bags and changes her destination from Europe to California .

So, this is the second book of All I seriers, and just like the first book, All I know, it wont disappoint you. The book is mind-gripping, comedy, romantic, erotic and realistic if you will ask me. The very fact that the author has so beautifully written the not so known and the hard hitting reality about social media and the very concept of influencing in social media, is truly appreciable. Also I am very happy that how all the characters in the book are balanced and can be highly associated in ...more

"​​​​​All I Want" is the second book from Tamara Lush's Paradise Beach series. It is a well-written story that is both hip and modern. It takes place on a small island off the coast of Florida, where the locals are very welcoming. This was an immediate read for me after I finished book one.
