A shocking tale of romance and deception, N.B.
Baker’s Everything is an impressive debut that proves no secret is ever really
buried. Ella Stone is struggling to pick up the pieces of her life.
by her parents when she was an infant, both of the grandparents who raised her
are now gone. Facing her future for the first time, Ella decides to move to
Detroit in order to be near her two best friends. After a misguided
relationship with a man she finds in bed with another woman, Ella begins
doubting her life-changing move. That is, until she meets Chance St. John.
Chance fends off a brutal attack, he and Ella share an instant connection. As
the two get to know each other, their passionate exploits both in and out of
the bedroom make way for a deeper connection for which neither one was quite
prepared. But despite their increasing closeness, Ella can’t shake the feeling
that Chance is hiding something from her. His frequent nightmares and skittish
responses point to a secret in his past that haunts him still. While Ella
attempts to uncover Chance’s mysterious past, her own life takes a turn for the
strange. As Everything builds to its explosive climax, Ella must discover the
truth before Chance’s dark past consumes them both.
This was a beautiful story. The characters are well developed and the story flows smoothly. There is a lot of steamy romance and true friendships. There is also a lot of action going on that keeps you on the edge of your seat guessing what is going to happen next. The secondary characters are really great too, and very easy to like as well. I love the story between Ella and Chance. There is a darkness that Chance is battling and Ella has been through some bad stuff as well. So these two finding each other is perfect. The strength that is shown from Ella is amazing and the love that Chance has is one in a million. I highly recommend this book.
