✿ Give Me All Of You ✿ F L Jacob ✿ Review ✿

Beth Emmons would not allow herself fall in love. Shed been burned in the worst way possible, leaving her with a secret that made her the black sheep of the family. 

Jake Martin wasnt looking for love. After his true love married another, he kept to himself and lived the life of a bachelor. 

When their paths crossed in Mexico, they couldnt get enough of each other. Beth kept to her friends with benefits plan, while Jake wanted more. A pregnancy scare caused Beth to run from Jake. Jake gave Beth the space she needed even if it was going to kill him. 

Christmas at the Black Hollywood Club reunited them and made them stronger.  Now, the family Beth wanted to  forget pops back
into her life needing her full attention.

All the while, Beth
s secret is busting at the seams causing her to once
again distance herself from Jake. Jake decides enough is enough and vows to fight for the love of his life, his real true love.

Will Beth be able to give herself to Jake? Can Jakes love give Beth the
strength she needs, or will her secrets cause them to fall apart again, leaving them shattered . . . unable to pick up the pieces. 

*Give Me All of You is book 3 is the Black Hollywood Series. It can be read as a standalone.



The lightening shines again in our room and she rolls to face me. Her beautiful lips are puckered and her cheeks are stained with tears from earlier. I slide into bed and pull her close to me. She snuggles right up and my heart feels like it is going to explode. This is so right. How can she not realize it?

My eyes slowly shut and Im off into a peaceful sleep with the love of my life.

It feels as though my eyes just shut when I am jolted awake by Beth screaming out into the night. The blood curdling sound has me on my feet before I even know what is going on. I try to blink the sleep from my eyes and focus on the room.

Thats when I see her. In bed curled into a fetal position shaking uncontrollably. Beth, Beth baby, whats wrong? She doesnt loosen the grip on her legs. I dont want to scare her any more than she is.

She jerks away from me when I place a hand on her shoulder trying to calm her. If its possible I think she actually curls into herself even more. I need her to focus on me. Moving swiftly around the bed to be in front of her, I crouch down to her eye level.

Beth, I need you to look at me. I move the matted hair away from her eyes. It takes a few minutes before I see her white knuckles move and start gaining color. Then her eyes meet mine. They seem so empty and scared.
When she finally seems to focus, she lunges at me. I move quickly to catch her body flying at me. If I didnt know she was truly scared out of her mind, I would have laughed because she knocks me on my ass.

I just hold her. Caress her back and hair. She isnt crying. If I had to guess Id say she is in some sort of shock. Time seems to stand still. Then her body starts shaking again. Beth, shhhhh, its going to be okay. Please talk to me. Im right here. Im not going anywhere.

Her breathing seems to calm down and the shaking slows. Whered you go baby? Come back to me. Feeling like I can move without scaring her, I cradle her to my chest and move to the bed again. Siting her on my lap, I rest my back on the headboard.

She looks up and tries to back out of my embrace. Oh God, Jake, Im so sorry. Her hands try to cover her face. That hasnt happened to me since I was in school. Fuck how embarrassing.

Grabbing her hands I pull them away. You said you wouldnt shut me out. Elizabeth look at me. What happened?

Her face falls and she looks away.

ARC received for an honest review

Give Me All Of is a spin off of the Black Hollywood series, but could be read as a stand alone - though this is a great series, so I would read them all.

The road to true happiness is never an easy one, and Jake and Beth's relationship has been rocky.  To say it is an

**insert emotional rollercoaster gif** would be an understatement.

Beth's past is determining her future.  She can't seem to get past it, and it is playing havoc with her relationship with Jake.  Jake is holding of on for dear life, never going to allow Beth to run away again.

Jake is completely and irrevocably in love with Beth, and it pains him that she won't allow herself to be with him completely.

We all know that secrets in a relationship can't be a good thing, but what will Jake do when he finds out Beth's?  What will happen when Beth receives news that knocks her world off its axis?

I was such a cheerleader for Jake and Beth to get their relationship where it needed to be.  My heart kept breaking for Jake as he kept fighting for Beth to stay with him.  There is so much love between them but will it be enough when one loves more freely than the other?

Will the get their HEA???

Nope, you will have to read and find out for yourself!

I loved that we got more of Caston and Sabrina Black in this book.  I loved that we got a bit of a continuation of their story through Beth.

And I couldn't help but adore Beth's brother Maxx!

F.L Jacob has written a beautiful story that tackles some pretty hard issues, and she has done it well.  The emotions rolled off the pages, the story flowed well and kept me interested from the word go.

I can't wait to see what she gives us next.




I am a mommy of two, wife to an amazing man, and full time employee. Life is crazy and busy! I started writing again during a darker time in my life in a group write in a Facebook group. They brought back my passion for writing that I havent felt since high school and helped me through hard times.

Starting this process was tedious and nerve-wracking, but my amazing ladies and my fabulous husband have inspired me to take my love for writing to the next step.
