Reeling from her loss, Kacey Dawson is grieving and heartbroken, her addictive demons hauling her back into the alcohol-soaked abyss she worked so hard to crawl out of. Kacey teeters on the edge of oblivion and must fight her way through the pain, to build a new life for herself with her music, and somehow fulfill the promise she made to Jonah...one she feels is impossible to keep.
Theo Fletcher has a secret burning in his heart, one that he holds close, while he struggles to keep strong for his family, which is falling apart. His mother's health is fragile and his father's disapproval is breaking him down. Theo is afraid if he follows his heart, he'll fail, and not just himself but also his brother, who believed in him when no one else did.
Drawn together by their pain, Theo and Kacey slowly build a friendship, re-forge old ties, help each other to heal, and give one another the courage to reach for their dreams. Together, from the depths of grief and guilt, they learn to laugh again, to trust again, and quite possibly find something beautiful and lasting amid the shattered pieces of their broken hearts.

All In was a excellent heart-warming follow up to book one (Full Tilt.) After having my heart broken in book one, I was happy Kacey and Theo were able to find solace, and love in each other.
Book two picks up closely where book one ends. Kacey's is having a hard time dealing with her loss, and can no longer handle being in the same city. Without telling anyone, Kacey moves to New Orleans, and reverts back to old habits, music and booze. She's drowning in sorrow, and drinks to numb the pain. She writes, sings, and plays her guitar at a couple of the local bars, and becomes known as the drowning girl.
Theo isn't doing much better. He's struggling with the pain of losing his brother, Jonah. He also carries the guilt of not being able to uphold one of the promises he made to his brother, and for the rejection he feels from his father not accepting his career choice. Theo is a tattoo artist who goes to college to earn a degree in business management in hopes of opening his own tattoo shop. Theo's brother believed in his skills, and left him the money to start the tattoo shop, but his father doesn't approve of him being a tattoo artist.
Six months after Kacey vanished, Theo receives a call from someone concerned about her. He finally has the opportunity to uphold his promise.......to take care of Kacey. He flies to New Orleans, and helps Kacey recover, and kick her drinking habit. They become close, develop feelings for each other, but try to fight them. When they finally give in, they start a long distance relationship. Theo's family, and Jonah's closest friends are reluctant to accept their relationship, but do come around.
This story was filled with many heart warming moments, but the most touching scene, and my favorite was Theo's dad visiting his tattoo shop..... that scene was priceless!
The narrators did an awesome job, and delivered on the different emotions. All In is well worth the time, credit or sale. While this story can be listened too as a stand alone, if you have not listened to book one, I recommend listening to it first. Both audios are great, but book one was amazing.
I Love a great supernatural tale, a Love story, PNR, a Cool Mystery and Most Sci-Fi....if there are vampires, weres or witches in it, that's a plus! Basically I am a 40+ y/o young at heart woman rediscovering the wonderful world of books and am now addicted! Lol I LOVE AUDIBLE!!!!!
Wonderful, beautiful, fantastic!!!
Dad at the end!!!! And the blue butterfly!!!
Lots of Caitlin, I just love her, she is so wonderful to listen too...I can not recommend her enough! First time listening to Jeremy..and he was just fine...I would listen to him again...but I cant say I would seek him out...
This would make a beautiful movie...combine both the books....and give us a movie....It would surely be a hit!!
