**ALL FOR THIS is book three in the Here and Now series. It is not a stand-alone and it’s intended to be read after LOST IN ME and FALL TO YOU.**

What if you would never remember the day you made the most important decision of your life?

That’s what they’re telling me about the day of my accident—the day I put on Max’s ring and chose him over Nate. I’m counting on the wisdom behind a decision I don’t remember making.

Max is amazing—sexy, sweet, and kind. I was starting to believe happily-ever-after might be in my future after all. Then the unthinkable happened and my world imploded. If I’m going to make this work with Max, I need my missing memories, or at least answers from about those five days before my accident.

But what does my future hold if those answers aren’t anything like I imagined?



Stacia Says…

**WARNING– this is a series that NEEDS to be read in order! I know some series have books that can be read alone, but don’t read this final book in the trilogy until you’ve read the first two.

ALSO– I will try not to have any spoilers in my review- but I can’t promise anything.

I knew going in, especially with the way that book two ended, that this one was going to gut me. And I’ve made it pretty clear from the beginning which team I am on when it comes to who belongs with Hanna. Well before the first chapter was over my heart was already hurting and I was ready to throw something. Hanna’s choice should be so simple- pick Nate. He loves her and the two of them belong together. But then Max transformed into this loving, giving man because of his love for Hanna and he wants a life with her too.

“You might love him, but you need me. And if you choose him, you’ll always wonder if you and I could have made it work.”

Nate or Max…Max or Nate? Gah… This is so hard. I felt just as torn as Hanna did (well almost—my heart belongs with Nate always).
I think if Max was a bad guy this whole thing would be so much easier for me to swallow. In book one I thought he could be and was kind of a jerk, but in book two he really came around and showed how much he truly loves Hanna and would do anything for her. Then there is Nate. I have been in love with him since the first book, but now I think it is more of an obsession. He is so swoon-worthy, says amazing things to Hanna, he is a good father, and is sexy as hell.

“Because life was this crazy, chaotic disappointment and then Hanna came along and everything got quiet. Everything slowed down.”

I can’t imagine being truly in love with two men and having to pick one- especially with all the circumstances and consequences attached to picking one over the other. So for that reason I really felt bad for Hanna. But, on the other hand I felt like she went back and forth too much and kind of strung them both along. I think most of Hanna’s issues about picking one or the other steams from her insecurities, her self esteem issues, her long-time love for Max and believing that Nate doesn’t want to be with her when it really counts.

“Don’t you see? You save me. Over and over again.”

Emotional roller coaster, check. Sexy tattooed rocker who loves with everything he is, check. Love triangle that makes it hard to choose sides, check. Buckle up for this one- it’s a roller coaster ride from beginning to end… literally every time I thought I had everything figured out another twist would come up. This was an amazing conclusion to a brilliant trilogy! You really MUST read this series.
