All I Need Is You by Wendy S. Marcus

★★★  This is the second installment in the Loving You series. After reading the first book, Loving you is easy, I was very much looking forward to Neve and Rory's story.
     The Neve, I was expecting was this spunky,witty, confident girl. Sadly for me, I found her lacking the self worth I expected her to have. She was a hard character for me to relate to. I could not understand her choices, why she thought and/or acted the way she did..  and at times this really frustrated me. I don't agree with, what I took to be her whole "sex solves everything" theory and found it got a bit tiresome of watching her berating herself after for being "that girl."

    Rory was a good character. He proved himself to be caring and I loved how he seemed to make sure to show Neve that she was worth a lot in his eyes.

      I quite enjoy this authors writing style and I really hope Neve's brother Nate gets a book... there's a line or so in the epilogue I believe.. that makes me think that he just might!  I look forward to reading more from her. 

** I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.**

Here's the blurb:

As a dancer who creates mesmerizing visions onstage, Neve James is looking for the same kind of stability in her love life. Her pen pal, Rory McRoy, is on leave from deployment in Afghanistan, so she heads to Boston to surprise him. After corresponding for months as part of a “Support Our Troops” initiative—and exchanging dozens of “Read When You’re Alone” letters—Neve knows what Rory likes, and she intends to fulfill his every fantasy. But all they get are a few blissful moments together before they’re interrupted by a woman claiming to be Rory’s fiancée.
Rory has fallen hard for Neve’s letters. When he finally meets her in person, he has to have her, right then and there—until Neve takes off in a fit of anger. Forced to return to Afghanistan before he can fix things between them, Rory waits four agonizing months to prove that he’s not the man Neve thinks he is. But by the time he arrives in New York, she’s already made up her mind. Luckily, Rory never backs down from a challenge, and he’s prepared to put everything on the line for love.
