Nursing student Avery Michaels wants nothing to do with dating—she’s perfectly happy single. Privy to too many of her mother’s bad decisions and even worse taste in boyfriends, all Avery can handle is a string of uncomplicated hookups whenever the mood strikes.
When she meets smoking hot tattoo artist Bennett, she wants him—for just one night. But he won’t accept a no-strings-attached arrangement. He lives by a straight-laced code of values based on his own troubled upbringing.
Bennett sees something special in Avery and he wants more from her. Way more. As Avery wrestles with her emotions for Bennett, danger and tragedy force them to open up to each other. And Avery must face the terrifying realization that she wants more from him, too.
So she needs to make a choice—let Bennett go or finally let him in.
Bennett didn’t breathe a word as my fingers raked softly against his thigh. He sucked in a breath and brushed his hand up and down my back and against the nape of my neck. The fire between my legs only intensified. I resisted the urge to squirm and moan into his chest.
Once the end credits began rolling, Bennett straightened himself. But I was still against his shoulder in a feigned state of sleep. When he removed his fingers from my hair, I lamented the loss.
“Avery,” he whispered. “Ready for bed?”
“Mmmm . . .”
He shifted away for a moment before I felt my body being lifted by strong arms. He smelled liked coconuts and white sandy beaches. My eyes remained closed but I nuzzled into his neck, my lips resting against his smooth skin. He stifled a groan.
His lips brushed against the top of my head as he carried me to his bed, and a wave of euphoria pulsed through me. He laid me down facing the wall, the same position I’d slept in last night. I heard his labored breaths as he stepped out of his jeans and removed his shirt. Then he slid in beside me.
He hesitated for the longest time before finally scooting forward. His hand came around and braced my stomach, so warm and strong and protective that I couldn’t hold in my gasp.
“Is this okay?” he whispered. I could only nod, my limbs felt so weak.
His breathing intensified and I felt his bulge growing against my back. But Bennett said nothing more and made no other moves. I got the feeling he was trying to hold himself back, and there was no way I was going to throw myself at him.
It was the single most sensual moment of my life.
We lay there for some tense and aroused minutes before I finally heard his breaths soften into sleep.
5 of 5 All Of You
All Of You is one of the MOST AMAZING books I have read in 2013. I absolutely LOVED LOVED it! I mean who would not want to read about one of the main characters being a virgin and said main character is a guy! Holy shizz I knew I had to read it because I have never read anything like that before. Let me tell you this Christina pulled it off and then some. I could not put this book down and man when it ended I was mad because I wanted no I needed more!
Avery is my girl. She is such a spit fire and a hot ass mess because she is a nursing student doing her thing in school. She focuses on her studies and hooks up with guys when she has an itch that needs to be scratched. Then she meets her new neighbor and holy frizz she wants him for one night. Her new neighbor Bennett is hot as hell and a tattoo artist and a virgin. Yes you read right he is a virgin and wants it that way until he finds the right girl.
Avery wants Bennett in a bad way but Bennett is not having any of that because he wants Avery and he wants her in every way. Bennett wants her to be his everything and not a one night stand. He does not want to be a hookup. He wants her to be his everything. Can Avery give her heart to Bennett or will she walk away because she can't handle it?

I needed to hold him. Kiss him. Taste him. I was nearly blinded by my desire for him.
When Bennett pulled open his door, he seemed bowled over to see me. “What are you—”
Before he could get the words out, my lips were on his. I walked him backward into his apartment, shut the door with my foot, and forced him hard against the wall.
“Avery,” he moaned into my mouth.
Yanking his shirt over his head, I saw goose bumps swell across his skin.
I licked and sucked his neck before dragging my tongue down his chest. I stopped to flick against each of his nipples and watched how they hardened in response.
Bennett knocked his head against the wall. “Jesus.”
I felt powerful in ways I hadn’t experienced before. And it was a major turn-on.
When I continued down Bennett’s stomach, his breaths shot out fast and hard.
I kissed along the path of the tornado on his ribcage, and his stomach trembled in my wake.
Then I trailed my tongue along his hip bone, turning him to continue on to his back. I was determined to get a decent look at his hourglass tattoo.
I studied it, caressing it with my fingers. It was outlined in black, with the sand inside a burnt orange hue. The hourglass itself was misshaped—almost like it was melted—just like the one in his drawing.
“Tell me about this one.”
He was trying hard to control his breathing. “Always been interested in the concept of bending time.”
I slid my hands along his waistline while he panted.
“There’s a saying that goes like this: The hourglass freezes in moments of sorrow. Races along in moments of bliss.” He spun and pulled me to my feet. Cupping my cheeks, he gazed into my eyes. “The very concept of time is a demand. That you own it, savor it, mean it. Before you waste it . . . or it wastes you.”
Then he fused his mouth to mine, his kiss so intense, it was as if I were unraveling from the inside. Like he was siphoning my breaths out of my body.
He broke the kiss, and we stood gasping against each other.
“That’s totally hot,” I mumbled.
He reached around my waist. “You’re totally hot.”
