Perhaps it is just the monotony of staying indoors under lockdown in this pandemic, but lately I have been reading more and more contemporary romance novels. And All I’ve Wanted, All I’ve Needed by A. E. Valdez is one of those sweeping romances that’s been on my TBR list.
Following the story of Harlow Shaw who believes in things that are meant to be and happily ever afters (ahem…sounds a lot like me if I am being honest), All I’ve Wanted, All I’ve Needed by A. E. Valdez is a beautiful story about new beginnings, and discovering what you really want out of life and going for it unapologetically.
