I threw the book across the room and my husband looked over at me and said, "That bad, huh?". WTF kind of ending was that?!?!?! ( )

"All of Me" is Lori Wilde's fourth and last book in her 'Wedding Veil Wishes' series. Like the other books in this series, Wilde mixes humor and sadness, joy and despair, and always, disbelief vs love. This last book had me smiling, laughing, sniffling, and crying. Both characters had their hearts badly scarred by love, but both did get their happy ending and I enjoyed reading about their journey.

Jillian is the realist. She doesn't believe in fairy-tale love. She believes in the fight and the law and enjoys the high winning a tough case brings. But one day the joy disappears, so she heads directly for her mentor, her father figure, her boss. Only to find he dropped dead that morning of an incurable tumor that he never told her about. Feeling deserted (yet again), hurt, and angry, Jillian quits her job. Then she discovers her mentor left her a lakeside cabin in Salvation, Colorado. It must be fate.

Tuck used to be the 'Magic Man'. His architectural skills won him fame and fortune and his beloved wife. But when she was diagnosed with cancer, he spent his fortune trying to find a cure...only to discover none. Her last wish was to die at her estranged father's lakeside cabin in Salvation and so she did. After her death, his father-in-law deeded the cabin to Tuck and he's never left it. It's his last link to his dead wife. It's the place where they had planned to raise a family. It's also the same cabin Jillian has 'inherited'.

There's so much more to this story and these characters than the brief description above. They are both carrying so much pain and loss around, at times I wondered how they could move with such a weight on their hearts. Yet, slowly, slowly they each begin to change. They are both strong characters and fighters and neither is willing to back down so they do clash at first, and second, and third! But somewhere in those clashes, they find a friendship that leads to caring that leads to love.

I enjoyed reading about Jillian and Tuck. From their initial banter as they trade quips and insults through their growing camaraderie and understanding of each others 'sore spots' and faults. All four of Lori Wilde's books in this series featured a different 'type' of heroine and hero. It wasn't the same story written four times with different names or locations. This tale was about risking hurt, taking chances, and second beginnings. There are bumps aplenty and hurts too. But in the end, the happiness outweighs the sorrow and I ended "All of Me" with a big smile on my face. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0446502057, Mass Market Paperback)

Can two broken hearts become one? Attorney Jillian Samuels doesn't believe in true love and never, ever wished for happily ever after. But when a searing betrayal leaves her jobless and heartbroken, a newly inherited cottage in Salvation, Colorado, seems to offer a fresh start. What she finds when she arrives shocks her: the most gorgeous and infuriating man she's ever met is living in her home! Tuck Manning was a gifted architect who left a skyrocketing career to care for his dying wife. But the life he's made for himself in this quiet town is turned upside down when Jillian appears on his doorstep. Tuck won't go without a fight, and the two resolve to live as roommates until they can untangle who owns the cottage. Yet as Tuck and Jillian's days--and nights--heat up, they realize more than propery rights are at stake...and that sometimes, salvation comes when you least expect it.
