All I Want Is You

All I Want Is You - Sherrill Bodine All I Want is You was kindly provided to me by Netgalley for Grand Central Publishing.2.5 starsThe StorylineHer father was forced out as treasurer of John Clayworth and Company and since then things have been more than a bit terse between their families even though her sister Diana still works for the Company and her other sister Athena is marrying into the Clayworth family. When her father refuses to disclose the reason for his termination, Venus decides to take matters into her own hands and find out what happened, even if that means befriending Connor Clayworth O'Flynn, who she's had a crush on since childhood. The two end up teaming up together anyways when Venus ends up in possession of a mysterious brooch that was stolen years ago from the Clayworth family.Overall ThoughtsI was in the mood for a contemporary romance and decided to pick this one up. It was a bit more focused on this big mystery and the romance actually took the back burner in the story overall. I didn’t feel that the 'romance' was really up to par either as Connor and Venus went from hating each other to doing a complete flip and are suddenly madly in love with one another. Suffice it to say the 'romance' just wasn't there in my opinion and I would've loved to see it take a more central role and also maybe more of a buildup so that it would have been a bit more realistic. I had a slight issue with the writing style with the points of view. The POV was written from Venus/Connor's perspective but it would often switch up without even a paragraph break to signify the change which I found didn't work well in the least.The mystery ended up being a bit predictable but it was still nonetheless enjoyable. The romance was steamy and entertaining despite it being a bit cliché. This was an entertaining read for when you’re in the mood for something light and fluffy. All in all, I think I fell victim to a pretty cover.
