All In by LK. Simonds

Cami Taylor: a blackjack dealer, a bestselling author, and a fraud. Cami’s boyfriend, Joel, loves her in spite of her flaws. He wants to marry her, buy a house on Long Island, and raise a family–a life that’s a million miles from Cami’s idea of happiness. Her therapist suggests compromise and trust, but Cami bolts like a deer. She breaks off the relationship and launches on a new quest for happiness, not knowing that a nasty surprise waits around the corner. What follows is a fight to the death. Who will be the one left standing?




My Review

When I first started this book I was not sure if I would like it. It is about a women who is living life to the fullest in today’s standards. Within the first five chapters is a sex scene that is not explicit but more discriptive then I liked. There was only one other. Overall, the book is clean in that regards.
I decided to keep reading and found myself more drawn into the story. Cami was an interesting person to get to know. Written through her perspective, I found it to be a fresh look at someone searching for Truth. Many questions even Christians struggle with were mentioned. She also is a writer and that was cool to read about. References to the book she wrote about a blackjack dealer is sprinkled throughout the boon. I found her to be realistic and relatable to readers.

This story has a wonderful redemptive message. It was a little more charasmatic then I’m used to but that is ok. The message of Christ’s love & forgiveness is clearly shown and that’s awesome.

I think the reader can learn along with Cami valuable truths.

I recommend this book to most everyone.

I received this book from the publisher to read and give my honest opinion. All thoughts are my own.
