Vintage Boutique owner Venus Smith is stunned to realize her newest acquisition comes with a larcenous legend. Stolen years ago, the antique mermaid brooch belongs to the Clayworth family. The right thing to do would be to return it, but that means facing Connor Clayworth O'Flynn, the sexy department store heir Venus has had an unrequited crush on since childhood~~and the man who helped ruin her father.
Connor knows that Venus has never forgiven him for what happened between their families. But business isn't personal, even though Venus's father's betrayal still cuts him like a knife. So when Venus proposes a deal~~she'll return his family's brooch if he helps clear her father's name~~he reluctantly agrees. As action-packed days turn into flirtatious fall nights, it isn't long before old memories resurface...and new desires ignite. Can two young lovers leave the past behind? Or must they first admit that all they've ever really wanted...is each other?
This is the first book I've read by this author, Sherrill Bodine. This was one of those light, bubbly romance novels with an underlying mystery to solve, which made it a very enjoyable read. "All I Want Is You" was a rousing good time...dishy, delicious, and utterly delightful. I'm a fool for romance with a bit of mystery thrown in so I found this book quite entertaining.
I won this book a year or two ago from another book blogger, but sorry I can't remember who. The book is now a part of my personal library and I enjoyed it enough to award it 3 lovely stars.
