Release Day Blitz & Review: To Have It All by BN Toler
Liam had set up shop there.
After an accident left him injured and unable to work, it wasn’t long before he ended up on the street with his dreams in the gutter.
This was it.
This was his life.
Until the day he met Max Porter—a man who appeared to have it all. They didn’t meet so much as made eye contact as Max sneered at Liam, the bum occupying precious space on the sullied New York City street.
When Max stepped into oncoming traffic, a lesser man might’ve let him. But Liam risked his life to save Max only to be left to die without a second thought.
When Liam woke up days later, he wasn’t himself…at least he wasn’t in his body.
He was in Max’s.
And with Liam’s body on life support, there was only one logical conclusion: Max was trapped in Liam’s comatose body.
Somehow the twisted hands of fate had given Liam a second chance; a chance to have it all. But with all the perks of Max’s life also came his problems. Finding balance in his new identity was challenged more so once Liam fell for Waverly, Max’s beautiful ex.
Could Liam live out his life as another man or would he pull the plug and let fate decide?
Would he lose his chance at true love?
Would he lose the chance to have it all?
*Book Received in Exchange for Honest Opinion/Review*
This book was disappointing, and not in a horrible way. Usually with BN Toler, I have learned to deal with emotionally, gripping stories that will leave me in tears and this book didn’t do that for me. While the story was an okay read, I didn’t find myself emotionally connecting or falling for the characters, I think this disconnect is why I wasn’t a sobbing mess. So while I wasn’t captivated by the characters, it wasn’t a terrible story; however, it was just a meh story for me.
I find myself struggling to find the words but I think the greatest downfall of this book for me is that nothing stands out. I wasn’t captivated by a setting, I was enchanted by characters, I wasn’t swooning over an alpha, and all of these lead to my feelings of disappoint. I wanted to be moved by the storyline but I found Max to be an ungrateful, awful person and honestly…Liam just didn’t do anything for me. I wasn’t moved by his story and I think my first red flag in the story should have been when I started speed reading to get to conversations instead of being enthralled by every word.
I was bored with Waverly and the only things I will remember about these characters tomorrow are their unique names (well at least the names of the women in this book). I guess what it comes down to is I wanted more, I wanted more emotion, more extremes, more heartache, and more character development. Awesome concept but the execution left me wanting more from Toler.
