Teagan Berkley is trying her best. A single mom raising a precocious teen, she may have given up on her dreams, but she’s accepted her life in her small beachside hometown. Now the one person who abandoned her when she needed him the most has returned, bringing back memories of what might have been.

Derek Hartz arrives in town with a teenage daughter – and he’s full of guilt over his failed marriage and the way he ended his friendship with Teagan. He’s determined to set things right with her, but first he needs to gain her trust. Something he’s not convinced he deserves.

As Teagan and Derek open up to each other-and confess their deepest secrets-it’s impossible for them to deny what’s always been between them. But just when their happily ever after is within reach, their complicated history surfaces again and threatens to keep them apart. Forever.

Sunny Shelly’s Review: 5 Stars

All I Ask is full of everything I love about a good romance novel. It’s heartwarming, has just a touch of angst, and the perfect best friends romance. This book pulled me in from that heartbreaking prologue, and had me waiting to read chapter after chapter so I could see how Derek and Teagan’s story ended.

I love that Derek and Teagan were unlikely best friends back in high school. He was a nerd, she was a cheerleader, but they formed an unbreakable friendship when she tutored him. It wasn’t long before they started to develop feeling for each other, but since Teagan had a boyfriend, they each kind of ignored it. Eventually, being in love with each other and keeping silent is what led to the end of their friendship.

The story goes back and forth in dual POV between the past and the present, and we really see how Derek’s feelings for Tea impacted his marriage, and how torn Teagan was about whether or not she should tell Derek how she felt about him. In the end, Teagan loved him enough to let him go.

Thirteen years later, Derek and Tea are reunited when he reluctantly moves back to their small town. They are forced to face their feelings, and their teenage daughters (who are complete opposites) are instant enemies. CM wonderfully navigates this tentative reunion as they hash out their hurts and hidden feelings, come to terms with their new realities, and attempt to move forward as a couple. And when Teagan gets a once in a lifetime opportunity, it threatens to destroy everything that they’ve been working toward.

From start to finish, All I Ask was a page-turner that left me feeling happy. I received an advanced copy and voluntarily left a review.
