All I Want (Animal Magnetism #7) by Jill Shalvis

All I Want (Animal Magnetism #7)

From the “awesomely, incredibly talented”* New York Timesbestselling author of Still the One, comes a sexy new Animal Magnetism novel set in Sunshine, Idaho, where the sky is the limit when it comes to love.

Pilot-for-hire Zoe Stone is happy to call Sunshine, Idaho, her home base. But her quiet life is thrown for a loop when her brother’s friend Parker comes to stay with her for a week. The U.S. Fish and Wildlife special agent is a handsome flirt with a gift for getting under her skin. And the situation only escalates when Parker hires her to fly him around the area while he collects evidence on a suspected smuggler.

Now she has to live and work with the guy. But when they’re in the air, she sees another side of him. He’s driven, focused, and sharp. And while he enjoys giving commentary on her blind dates, she quickly realizes with a shock that it’s Parker who gets her engines going…

Review by CA Borgford

Zoe, Zoe, Zoe … I love her. Like pack her up and keep her in my pocket lovvvvvveeee her. She is just the right amount of silly, sweet, smart and sassy. It’s easy to see how she kept Darcy and Wyatt on track in their younger years. Zoe is struggling to re-enter the dating pool. With her siblings finally out from underneath her she has run out of excuses for not putting herself first. Sounds easy right? Not so much. Ms. Shalvis brings in her trademark humor and sets Zoe on a course of unfortunate encounters that will leave you in stitches.

Parker is giving Adam a run for his money in the sexiest AM Man contest. Yum, yum, double yum. I wanted to relive each and every one of his delectable smiles. Where Zoe seems like an open book, Parker is a mystery. As their story progresses I saw Parker evolve. Tears, fur and snow all point to Parker’s huge heart.  I thought his backstory was timed and developed perfectly.

When personal relationships and work further entwine Parker and Zoe, they are faced with hard decisions. Do they follow their hearts into the unknown or do they continue on the path that has always come easy to them. You’ll have to read to find out.

It’s a testament to Shalvis’ writing that the adorable Oreo and Bonnie and Clyde don’t completely steal the show. Her use of animals as secondary characters is brilliant. Their presence is always propelling the story and revealing traits about the characters effortlessly. All I Want is a must read. It delivers on every level ~ great story, suspense, sex, humor and character that are simply irresistible.
