All My Life by Prescott Lane
Release Date: October 10, 2018
All My Life, an all-new standalone contemporary romance by Prescott Lane.
The beginning of any love story starts with the meet.
I’ve known Garrett Hollis since before I can remember, and I’ve loved him just as long. I loved him while he loved someone else. I loved him when he had a baby with her. I loved him when she left him.
The greatest of love stories is that between a dad and his daughter. I should know. I’ve had a front row seat. First steps, first words, all the big moments.
Garrett was just a teenager when Mia was born. I’ve watched him braid his daughter’s hair, hold her hand crossing the street, seen her asleep on his chest. I’m the best friend, the one they can count on for everything from dance lessons to motherly advice, anything they need. I’m their go-to girl.
The best part of any love story is the happily ever after.
But what if the happily ever after doesn’t include you?
All my life, that’s how long I’ve loved him.
Of course, he’s clueless.

As far as dates go, this one has been good. I like her. She’s attractive, funny, smart, seems to have her head on straight. All the boxes are checked. This should be the point where I kiss her, ask her out again. I should be devising ways to get in this woman’s panties, but instead I’m thinking more about yanking down the tutu of one very sexy Biscuit Girl. I should be thinking about how to get this woman to fall for me, but it’s me that’s fallen. I should have one thing on my mind, and I do — Devlyn.
There’s just one big ass problem. She’s my friend. I can’t go there. There are so many reasons why I can’t go there. The town would have a field day. We’d have no privacy. Everyone would have an opinion. If we broke up, where would I get a decent cup of coffee? How would Mia react to this? Then there’s Scott, who’s actually the least of my concerns. Devlyn seemed pretty sure it was over, and if it’s not, I plan on convincing her.
I don’t want to lose Devlyn.
Staying friends guarantees her in my life. Dating her doesn’t.
Love doesn’t come with a guarantee.
Love is a risk. I used to be a risk taker, but teenage fatherhood buried that part of me. Stability became the name of the game. It had to. I look towards her diner, wondering if she’s back.
Sunny Shelly’s Review: 4 Stars
Devlyn has been in love with her best friend, Garrett, all of her life. She’s helped him raise his daughter, Mia, has been his best friend and his go-to. Even when their small town turned against him for knocking up his high school girlfriend, Devlyn was the one who stuck by them, and eventually got the community to see Garrett in a different light.
When Mia’s valedictorian speech goes viral, women literally come knocking down Garrett’s door. He agrees to a handful of dates to appease his daughter, and it’s then that he realizes that the woman he’s been looking for has been standing right in front of him his entire life.
Based on the book cover, I expected Garrett’s daughter, Mia, to be a toddler; not a teenager graduating from high school. So the troubles that Garrett and Devlyn experience have less to do with him being a single parent and everything to do with the sudden return of Mia’s mother. With unrequited love stories, you have to, as a reader, just accept the fact that yes, so-and-so could have said something years earlier about their feelings. But if they had, there wouldn’t be a book to read now, would there? So, yes, maybe Devlyn could have told Garrett how she felt years earlier, but then that would have completely changed the dynamic of their friendship, how she was the one who understood his love for Mia because she loved Mia just as much. And that’s why I was crying when Devlyn decides to take herself out of the equation in order to give Mia — the child she loves as if she was her own — the life that she’d always longed for.
There were many times that I thought Garrett was a dope, and he could have treated Devlyn better. Especially once they started dating. But this book has a nice arc to it as they go from friends to secret lovers to splitting up — and he got his head out of his butt in the end and made the grand gesture that Devlyn deserved after loving him all her life.
I received an advanced copy and voluntarily left a review.
