From the “awesomely, incredibly talented”* New York Times bestselling author of Still the One, comes a sexy new Animal Magnetism novel set in Sunshine, Idaho, where the sky is the limit when it comes to love.
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…

A strong heroine. I highly recommend this book.
I really liked this story. Not only was there was an alpha male, but an equally strong female. It is about time. I am about to do a spoiler so stop reading. I am happy to finally have a realistic ending. I hate it in a story when the female character just automatically forgive the wrongs. No, she will be mad and go off. And finally, this heroine, Zoe, made the hero, Parker, work for forgiveness. I wanted to high five Zoe. Thank you Jill for writing a realistic character.
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.
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.

Every new Jill Shalvis novel is better than the last. All I Want is no exception. She once again creates complex characters you can't help but laugh, cry and fall in love with as the story progresses. I recommend all of Jill's books to everyone I know, so if you haven't read it, get to it!
