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.

I read the prologue and I knew I was going to like this book because those words made me fall in love with a character I hadn't met yet. Through flashbacks, we are introduced to Garrett and how he coped being a single dad to the coolest daughter Mia. Life is about to change for this family of two, getting to read this from a dads perspective was unusual and poignant. Mia wants to find someone for him but has that someone been there all along.
I loved Garrett Mia and Devlyn the author writes their characters perfectly. I really felt that I knew them and can picture than in my head. It's s beautiful my written story with a different take on a single parent romance one I feel has been sadly lacking in this genre. Although there is slight drama this was a gentle love story that I adored.

All My Life...
Not many of us can use that phrase and be honest.
All My Life...
This book is pain, love, and friendship. It is happiness at what you have and dreams of everything you knew you never could. It is everything that's ever been in your face and never been noticed. It hurts. Not at first, no.
At first, All My Life is smiles, laughs, and train wreck horror (in parade format). With a speech that launches tourism for a sleepy town, the train wreck that ensues is awesome...as a bystander. It's amusing. It's sweet but it's bittersweet. Seeing both sides creates a gap in our hearts. A grand canyon of hopes.
All My Life...
Powerful words. A devastatingly accurate phrase. A curse. A plea. A whispered promise.
All My Life...
Did I mention I'm a soggy, crying mess? Oh yeah, I forgot. Prescott Lane eviscerated my poor bruised heart with a selfless act that would even make the black heart of Satan turn red and start beating. Love is beautiful. Love is hard. But it's also easy. So easy to love this book and the characters in it- most of them!
Hard would be to ignore this heartwarming, smile-inducing chance at a kiss under a rainbow.

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.
