Jacket Description:

Temptation Treachery Passion

Haven Moore fled to Rome a year ago, leaving behind the Ouroboros Society and its diabolical leader, Adam Rosier. Now she's back in New York City with her beloved Iain. But Iain's supposed to be dead. And if they blow his cover, Adam won't give them any second chances.

Meanwhile, Beau Decker is missing. His life rests in Haven's hands. The Horae, a group of mystical sisters, hold the key to Beau's fate. They want to lock Adam away forever, and Haven is his only weakness. To save Beau, Haven must seduce Adame and lure him into the Horae's lair.

But Adam Rosier has always had a funny way of seducing her. And the closer Haven gets to her enemy, the more she succumbs to his spell. Beau's life hangs in the balance- but this time, Haven can't even trust herself. Every decision she makes will shape her destiny.

How far will she go for the people she loves?

All You Desire was everything I look for in a sequel. It was a realistic continuation to the previous novel, The Eternal Ones, and it pulled together strong characters, strong plots, strong settings, and strong emotions. It also threw in many surprising plot twists, that left me wondering who to trust, and who to believe in. This book had me so emotionally attached to it, that I had to stop reading it at some spots and tell myself "Breathe, Brandi. It's just a book. An awesome book, but it's still just a book."

So, onto my [spoiler free] summary of the story:

*Warning: This summary assumes you have read the Eternal Ones. Some minor spoilers for the Eternal Ones might be included in this summary

All You Desire begins with Haven and Iain living out their fantasy in Rome. But that fantasy is quickly disrupted when Haven's best friend, Beau, goes missing after he travels to New York to find his soul mate. Haven, desperate to find and save her best friend, goes back to New York, and there the main plot unfolds. Haven finds herself caught up between to ancient forces in her quest to find and save Beau: Adam Rosier, the man/demon who has been trying to make Haven his wife for the better part of two millenia, and the Horae, a group of 12 sisters who are determined to destroy Adam. Haven is in over her head more than she realizes, but she's willing to do anything to save Beau (besides give up Iain, that is).

All You Desire ended on a bit of a cliffhanger, and I can't wait for the third book. Kirsten Miller does such an amazing job of pulling you into her story and never letting you go. I would definitely recommend this novel to anyone who loves YA Paranormal Romance.
