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?
A Note From the Publisher
Kindle release date May 7, 2019.
Every aspiring novelist wants what Cami got: a bestselling first book that provided the funds for her to move to New York and completely transform her life—on the surface. But she couldn’t leave herself behind.
Cami’s personal progress is oh-so-human—one step forward, two steps back, a jog to the side, then forward again. I mentally scolded and cheered Cami as her journey of true transformation took her to a place she never expected.
L. K. Simonds is an incredibly gifted writer. Her descriptions are amazing; they engage all the senses as she creates the stage for Cami’s story and guides the reader through it. All In is written in first person, present tense, which I usually find distracting because it’s so difficult to do and few writers can pull it off. But this author does it to perfection. I was never pulled out of the story by a technical error.
I received an advance review copy of All In and am looking forward to buying L. K. Simonds’ next novel.
