Liam had set up shop there.

After an accident left him injured and unable to work, it wasn’t long before he ended up on the street with his dreams in the gutter.

This was it.

This was his life.

Until the day he met Max Porter—a man who appeared to have it all. They didn’t meet so much as made eye contact as Max sneered at Liam, the bum occupying precious space on the sullied New York City street.

When Max stepped into oncoming traffic, a lesser man might’ve let him. But Liam risked his life to save Max only to be left to die without a second thought.

When Liam woke up days later, he wasn’t himself…at least he wasn’t in his body.

He was in Max’s.

And with Liam’s body on life support, there was only one logical conclusion: Max was trapped in Liam’s comatose body.

Somehow the twisted hands of fate had given Liam a second chance; a chance to have it all. But with all the perks of Max’s life also came his problems. Finding balance in his new identity was challenged more so once Liam fell for Waverly, Max’s beautiful ex.

Could Liam live out his life as another man or would he pull the plug and let fate decide?

Would he lose his chance at true love?

Would he lose the chance to have it all?



Alexis says…

So, the second I read the synopsis of To Have It All by BN Toler I knew I wanted to read it. This one sounded so different than the books I’d been reading lately.

Liam has literally hit rock bottom. After an injury has sidelined him from working, he ends up on the streets. When he tries to save Max from being killed, he finds himself being hurt. But instead of waking up in the hospital, he wakes up in Max’s body. From the outside it looks like Max has it all…but appearances can fool everyone.

While occupying Max’s body, Liam learns that money does not always bring happiness. This book is told in both Liam’s and Waverly’s POV with a few chapters from Karma.   The first thing that Liam learns is that Max has a daughter and an ex-wife. His ex, Waverly, wants him to sign over his rights to their daughter. Waverly can see the difference in Max right away but she can’t really figure out what is is. Instead of signing his rights over, Liam starts to spend more time with Waverly and Prim. For the life of him, he can’t understand why Max would just cast them aside.

While Liam is in Max’s body, his own body is lying in a hospital in a coma. Liam connects with his sister Helen and convinces her he is who he says he is. Together they are on borrowed time as they don’t know what will happen to Liam when the plug is pulled. Will he die? Will he stay as Max? Will they both die?

This book was so unique and not many authors could’ve pulled off this storyline. Sure, I would consider this a romance but I just love the theme of this book and the lessons you can gleam from it. This is the first book I can remember in a long time that I was actually racing to read so I can find out how it ends…I was that on edge.

I highly recommend this one for many reasons. It’s a beautiful story that will make it to the top of your faves of 2017!
