All I Want is You, Patricia Mar

All I Want is You,  Patricia Mar

All I Want is You by [Mar, Patricia]

Genre: General Fiction (Adult), Romance

I thought I’d love this, but found that it a bit disappointing.
Set in Rome I’d have like to have fell more of that, to me it could have been anywhere, and yet that part could have added so much romance to the atmosphere. Apart from her Tour job there was little to make Rome stand out.

I expected to sympathise with Sara, instead I didn’t like her most of the while, she seemed “woe is me” constantly, and was always looking for ways to see that Daniel was playing her.
He was sweet about that, kept telling her he loved her for herself, didn’t want all the models etc, the people that just wanted to be seen with him, just wanted her for himself. Yet she seemed to disbelieve him the second he left the room….I wanted to say “c’mon girl, enough whining now, appreciate what you have instead of looking for ways to tear it down.”
I did feel for her over some issues, I would find it hard to remain “its just a job” when someone had their hands all over my almost naked boyfriend – it did make me wonder just what he was modeling for, seemed a bit OTT for usual stuff.

I didn’t feel that much of a connection between the two and I guess that coloured my enjoyment, I love to feel that sizzle between a couple and here it was just missing. I hate too when a book is described as “laugh out loud/hilarious/side splitting” etc. Please publicists, just don’t do it. Its a let down, this had some genuine humorous moments, but as I often feel too many episodes felt forced.

Stars: Three, its a cute read, one I thought I’d love but which proved to be not quite right for me.
