Fall for the small town where the sky is the limit when it comes to love in this Animal Magnetism novel from New York Times bestselling author Jill Shalvis.

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...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Jill never disappoints. Just lost my job today–restructuring\outsourcing (yep, it sucks)–so what did I do? I got lost in "All I Want" and it completely obliterated any worry for a few wonderful hours. Thanks Jill! There's another upside to this 'lay-off,' now I can get back to my own writing efforts, which I've set aside for many years while reporting-editing for a newspaper.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Jill Shalvis is a sure thing! Every time I pick up a book by Jill Shalvis, I know that I'm in for a heartwarming, sweet and sexy treat and ALL I WANT certainly delivered on its promise. Meet Zoe Stone. Ace pilot, very independent, somewhat snarky, a bit bruised by life, the oldest Stone sibling and de facto mother of the brood. Now that her siblings are settled in their relationships, Zoe plans on working on a few things on her list like fixing up the home they inherited from their grandparents, learning to bake and getting back into the dating pool. Then she opens up her door to Parker James and that list gets a re-shuffle. Parker James is on forced vacation after being wounded in the line of duty (who knew that there was so much danger working with the Fish & Wildlife Service?) and he chose Sunshine, Idaho. Lucky for him, his old college buddy Wyatt lives in Sunshine and he'll be sharing the old family home with Wyatt's older sister. Her enthusiastic welcome and the instant chemistry between them are completely unexpected but welcome and for the first time in his life, Parker has found the one person who can distract him from his absolute dedication to his job. Meet Parker James. Investigating agent for the Fish & Wildlife Service and the sexiest man to ever grace Sunshine (sorry, Wyatt!). He's attractive, caring, confident, protective, has a great sense of humor and when it comes to his job, which is his real reason for being in Sunshine, Parker is extremely driven and focused. Two people with reason to shun commitment. Zoe has been played for a fool before and Parker feels that his single-minded devotion to his job means that there is no room in his life for anything or anyone else. But sizzling chemistry like Zoe and Parker share is not something they are used to so, even though there is no future for them, they don't mind enjoying each other in the time they have together. ALL I WANT was such a fun book. The flirting, the witty banter, the verbal foreplay, the humor - it all felt so good! The antics of the animals also added a playful element to the story. What I loved most was the lack of angst. Jill Shalvis always makes me smile, laugh and fall in love with her characters!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love Abounds In Sunshine, ID Zoe Stone has always been the one to keep things running smoothly. A lifetime of her parents being off doing their thing has made her the solid one, the one that made sure that her younger siblings had what they needed, that life looked somewhat normal. But now that her brother and sister are out on their own, Zoe's ready for a life reboot. Parker James has always wanted to be the opposite of his parents, to live a life different from the one mapped out for him. An agent for the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, he's happy to go wherever the job takes him. There's no room in his life for settling down... Any time that Jill Shalvis releases something new, it's an automatic top of the TBR for me. I will shuffle things around just so that I can read her books, because I love them so much. Having met and loved Zoe in previous books in Jill's Animal Magnetism series, I was excited to see what was in store for her. As the eldest of three kids that have spent their lives in far-flung corners of the world due to their foreign service parents, Zoe has found that she loves being back home in Sunshine, Idaho. She's finally found a rhythm to her life, a steadiness that makes her happy. When Parker shows up, that equilibrium is more than upset, and it isn't long before her life is turned upside down. Oh God. "You're not Newman Taylor," she whispered in horror. "No," he said. "But if your next guess is Parker James, you'd be right." Oh God. Wyatt's friend, to whom she'd agreed to rent a room for the few weeks he was in town... "You're my brother's old friend." "Not all that old, really," he said, and looked at her mouth. The mouth she'd kissed him with. Good God, I kissed him. He grinned. And...she'd said that out loud. Perfect. She covered her face. "I'm sorry, I-" "Don't be sorry," he said. "That kiss was the best thing to happen to me all week." I love these two. Determined not to get involved, it isn't long, of course, before good intentions are rethought, and all kinds of sizzle ensues. And, when I say sizzle, I mean hot as all heck. The chemistry between Zoe and Parker is the swoon-inducing, fan yourself type, and there is plenty of it. One of my favorite things about reading one of Jill's books is the sense of community, the family ties, the knowledge that the places she writes about are home, in the realest sense of the word. ALL I WANT has all of this, along with the suspense of the back story surrounding Parker and the requisite wonderful cast of supporting characters, making for an absorbing, can't put it down read. 5+ stars, and a recommendation to grab this one, settle in, and enjoy. ***ARC generously provided by publisher for an honest review.***

Rated 5 out of 5 by from endlessly entertaining Shalvis repeatedly had me laughing out loud with this intricately written and endlessly entertaining novel. She brings her setting forward through constant yet subtle descriptions that work their way into your subconscious, creating a picture for the characters to walk through. This small town really comes to life in a big way. The smooth & inviting narrative really takes the story to the next level, highlighting aspects of the plot and characters in minute ways that you can’t miss. I like how Shalvis tackled many difficult subjects while writing a fun, upbeat novel that I wanted to become part of. She also shows how romance in in the small things: a look, a touch, a whisper. There was a contradiction within Zoe – to follow her dream yet to guard herself closely, shutting herself down from others. Conversely, Parker’s caring nature, yet not wanting to care too deeply put him in a similar, if also very different boat. Not only that, but these two were just plain fun individuals to get to know. Both had exciting jobs, yet at the same time they were both common enough. Their personalities drew me in as well. As individuals they were the type of people I could see myself being friends with, yet together, oh boy! I won’t do them justice to describe it. The secondary characters were also a blast. You really get a sense of how much family matters throughout. Zoe’s sister, well, I don’t think she hit the page without making me giggle. I love how Shalvis brings people and their pets together in this novel. Oreo, for example, was priceless. He’s one of those rare pets who really comes to life in a story without becoming more than simply a loveable pet, making an unforgettable secondary character. And let’s not forget Parker’s sweet sister. I like how Shalvis developed her. I could empathise with and feel for her, without feeling pity for her. This is one of those fantastic novels that builds on the series that came before it while also giving readers a great standalone romance in and of itself. I could barely put it down and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend it to others. Please note that I received a complimentary copy of this work in exchange for an honest review.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Another great animal centric story “Got your 911 freak-out text.” Zoe is freaking out, that is true. After raising her brother and sister pretty much on her own (tell me – what kind of parents tell their twelve-and-under children that they will meet them in Budapest, and then don’t show up for three days? Even if they are diplomats, surely they could have sent someone from the consulate to watch over their kids!) Zoe is finally on her own in the home she inherited from her grandparents. She is going to fix it up and live there. Finally have a normal life, with dates and everything. Of course, it would help if she actually had any carpentry skills – at all – and it would also help if she didn’t get stood up for her first blind date. But she has a dog, a rescued Bernese mountain dog, and her brother and sister love her. She adores her life as a private pilot and flight instructor, so everything else is pretty much OK. Even if she does get lonely sometimes. But back to the date. Zoe opens her front door and, taking her younger, engaged sister’s advice, gives the hunk on her doorstep a peck on the lips. Only. Oh, snap. It isn’t her date. It is her brother Wyatt’ best friend, Parker James. Parker James, who is to be her tenant for a while. Embarrassing! Parker sort of likes that kiss. But he is only there for a while, and then he is back to DC in his job as a supervisory special agent for the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service. He is supposed to be on vaycay after the death of his partner who was murdered during an attempt to arrest a wildlife trafficking ring. A trafficking ring that is behind a large part of the thirty thousand elephants slaughtered last year for their ivory, thousands of rhinos slaughtered for their horns, and countless tigers, leopards and other endangered animals whose very existence as balanced on a razor’s edge due to poaching. Now, Tripp Carver, the man who killed Parker’s partner and nearly killed Parker himself, is planning to move 4.5 million dollars’ worth of death and agony from a hidden location in Idaho, a place called Cat’s Paw. Parker isn’t supposed to be there. He is supposed to be resting someplace warm and far from Carver. The FBI and the ATF, and multiple other alphabet agencies, apparently have a ‘deal’ with Carver to turn in his brother, the head of a dangerous militia group. Carver is to go free. But Parker won’t have it. All that death, all that horror, his partner’s life. No. Just No. This is, of course a romance novel, and Jill Shalvis is good with those, especially when you bring animals into the story. Oreo the Bernese is a favorite character of mine in the story. Rescued from a brutal situation, he is absolutely hysterical as he deals with a new person in the house, two new rescued kittens (he is terrified of kittens, go figure!) The story of the cruelty and uncaring slaughter of rare animals by monstrous human poachers is heartrending, and I really appreciated Ms. Shalvis addressing the situation in an intelligent and knowledgeable manner. And the clown show of the ATF, FBI and other agencies all tripping all over themselves to give Carver an out in order to capture “bigger fish” shot my blood pressure through the roof – because I know that nonsense is spot-on. If you enjoy romance novels with strong women characters (I loved Zoe’s strength) and great animal characters, this is the perfect books for a lazy Sunday afternoon. I received All I Want from the publisher in exchange for a realistic review. All thoughts are my own. PS - That dog on the cover? Not a Bernese mountain dog. Just sayin'.
