An Alisa Review:All He Needs (My Truth #1) by Ann Grech

Rating:  4 stars out of 5


When a former pro-snowboarder finds himself caught between two men who have stolen his heart, it takes heartbreak and a hit of reality for him to start believing love is truly all he needs.


I didn’t think it’d turn out this way: my life story in a nutshell. Life, Karma, whatever—it was testing me. Pushing me to the limit of what I could endure and beyond.


But in the steaming pile my life had become, I felt it. The spark. Like my soul met its counterparts, or whatever the corny saying was. I didn’t think it was possible. For a closeted guy, falling for not one but two men was never going to be easy, but I couldn’t deny its truth. Mace and Rick were….


Then I had to leave. My sister needed me. Having a baby alone was out of the question and I couldn’t wait to be an uncle. But going to stay with her in Florida meant leaving them. New Zealand and the USA couldn’t be further apart.


I’m not a saint. I’ve screwed up more times than I can count. But I was trying to redeem myself. Gracie, my niece, needed me to be a better man. If only there was a way I could have both—men to love and a family close by.


This is my truth, and this is all I need.


This was my first story by this author and I was not disappointed.  Caden is feeling lost after everything with his snowboarding career imploded and after his sister’s death he now feels like the whole world is on his shoulders.  What he needs is some support but he gets so much more and finally his father mentally comes back.


Mace has never been with another man but can’t deny his feelings towards Rick and Caden and there is no way he will let Caden push them away.  Rick has to reconcile how he has always felt about relationships but once he does that there is no holding him back.


Oh man, I felt for all of these characters.  Caden doesn’t feel he’s good enough and while he doesn’t want to hurt anyone he is struggling to find the right solution to make everything right.  Rick is ready to take them all home with him but it’s hard waiting forall the paperwork to be completed.  Mace can be more level headed and though struggles at the beginning isn’t willing to let either man go.  All of these men complement each other perfectly and there love is clear.  I was glad the Caden’s dad finally came back to earth when his son needed him most though I feel he hurt Caden a lot when he checked out after his mom’s and then more after his sister’s death.  I look forward to reading more stories from this author.


I love the cover art by Soxsational Cover Art, it’s such a great picture of Caden and Gracie.

By Scattered Thoughts

At over 50, I am ruled by my terriers, my gardens, and my projects. A knack for grubbing about in the woods, making mud pies, and tending to the injured worms, bugs, and occasional bird and turtle growing up eventually led me to working for the Parks. I was a park Naturalist for over 20 years, and observing Nature and her cycles still occupy my hours. From the arrival of Ruby-throated Hummingbirds in the Spring to the first call of the Snow Geese heading south in the Fall, I am entranced by the seasons. For more about me see my bio on my blog.
