An Alisa Review :All or Nothing by Riina Y.T

Rating:  4 stars out of 5

When shy sociology student Remington Belotti finds himself stuck on campus two days before Christmas, the handsome and untouchable Carter McCormack unexpectedly offers him a ride home. Having secretly longed for Carter’s attention for over a year, his sudden interest, along with the kind gesture, gives Remmy hope that his attraction might be returned, after all.

On their way to Remy’s hometown, they encounter bad weather and are overtaken by an unforgiving blizzard, leaving them stranded along the highway. The sparks of attraction fly in the safety of Carter’s car, where they share heartfelt confessions along with body heat and gummy bears. When they check into a motel for the night, their electrifying bond deepens, and their shared time might just bring Remmy and Carter the Christmas surprise they could only have dreamed of.

Oh I enjoyed this story, it was adorable.  Remmy needs to get home for the holidays and is willing to take a big risk by taking his bike even with the storm approaching.  He reluctantly accepts Carter’s offer of a ride but they quickly find out that they both may have been misunderstood.

Remmy is adorable and while he is shy he quickly opens up and acts silly around those he is comfortable with and Carter quickly becomes that person.  Carter has been hurt by his uncle’s family but the openness of Remmy’s family quickly soothes his worries and they quickly bring him into the fold.  I liked getting a glimpse of them together the next year and wish them all the best as their lives continue together.

Cover art by Natasha Snow is great and I think it’s prefect for the story.

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.
