The beginning of any love story starts with the meet.

I’ve known Garrett Hollis since before I can remember, and I’ve loved him just as long. I loved him while he loved someone else. I loved him when he had a baby with her. I loved him when she left him.

The greatest of love stories is that between a dad and his daughter. I should know. I’ve had a front row seat. First steps, first words, all the big moments. 

Garrett was just a teenager when Mia was born. I’ve watched him braid his daughter’s hair, hold her hand crossing the street, seen her asleep on his chest. I’m the best friend, the one they can count on for everything from dance lessons to motherly advice, anything they need. I’m their go-to girl.

The best part of any love story is the happily ever after.

But what if the happily ever after doesn’t include you?

All my life, that’s how long I’ve loved him.

Of course, he’s clueless.

Tracey’s Review

I finished this book in one sitting, I loved it. Having not read many of Prescott Lane’s stories beforehand, I have to say that is this my favourite from her.

All My Life is a simple story that doesn’t have any over the top drama that I sometimes find distracting. It is a fantastic friend to lover’s story with some pretty awesome characters.

Garrett pretty much stole my heart. The golden boy of the town, who shocked his small-town community with a teen pregnancy. From the get to he never shied away from his responsibilities even at a young age. Now a man, his priorities are still his daughter Mia.

Mia, just shy from turning 18 has decided that her dad needs to get himself back in the dating game. After her graduation speech goes viral, Garrett’s dating life becomes the hot topic off the community.

Enter Devlyn.

Devlyn is Garretts best friend. She was there from the moment Garrett become a teenager father and has always remained his one constant supporter even after she was forbidden to be his friend. Watching Garrett and Mia grow as a family and always making sure that she was there when either one of them need her.

But what Garrett never realised was Devlyn has always loved him, ever since they were teenagers and the bond was strengthened when she held Mia in her arms for the very first time.

Now that Garrett has been pushed into the dating game, he begins to realise just how much he needs Devlyn in his life, just not as his best friend. Is he prepared to step out of the friend zone?

Another element of this story that I enjoyed and found myself shedding a few tears was the relationship we see between Mia and Devlyn. They have a strong bond that was lovely to read and see evolve as the story progressed. Of course, it has a few bumps in the story that creates tension for this relationship but ultimately, I loved the moral story that this relationship highlights.

Overall this was a great read that was light on the drama but filled with plenty of love and friendship. I would recommend this book to anyone who is looking for a good feel book.
