#BookReview: All This Time by Mikki Daughtry, Rachael Lippincott

Synopsis: Kyle and Kimberly have been the perfect couple all through high school, but when Kimberly breaks up with him on the night of their graduation party, Kyle’s entire world upends—literally. Their car crashes and when he awakes, he has a brain injury. Kimberly is dead. And no one in his life could possibly understand.

Until Marley. Marley is suffering from her own loss, a loss she thinks was her fault. And when their paths cross, Kyle sees in her all the unspoken things he’s feeling.

As Kyle and Marley work to heal each other’s wounds, their feelings for each other grow stronger. But Kyle can’t shake the sense that he’s headed for another crashing moment that will blow up his life as soon as he’s started to put it back together.

And he’s right.


Rating: 2 Stars
My Review: Unfortunately this one just didn't work for me.  Five Feet Apart made me care about the characters before their romance began. But All This Time just started packing all the bad at you all at once and that just made me not really care about the characters at all.  I can kind of understand why this book hasn't been picked up as a movie.  


"Daughtry and Lippincott (Five Feet Apart) have crafted a fairy tale romance for readers who believe in second and third chances, as well as improbable but destined love. That the pair has built it atop the book’s first half—a fundamentally realistic story of Kyle’s maturation—makes the twists more affecting and, for the right readers, more romantic." -- Publisher's Weekly ― August 2020

"Readers who loved the writing team’s Five Feet Apart will eat this one up." -- Booklist ― 
September 2020

"A modern-day fairy tale about two teenagers suffering from loss who find healing in one another."
  -- Kirkus Reviews ― 
August 2020

"The authors of
 Five Feet Apart have taken their affinity for writing fairytales and crafted a page-turning narrative that will return hope to your heart....Mikki Daughtry and Rachael Lippincott are brilliant storytellers with a knack for perfectly balancing heartbreak and hope.....There truly is no better time to escape into a dream-like romance where love can’t break your heart, tragedy can’t steal your joy, and everyone gets the happy ending they deserve." -- ― September 2020

"An emotionally charged contemporary romance that is as much about finding self-worth as it is about falling in love....Using flawed characters flailing to become whole again, Daughtry and Lippincott show the long, difficult road to healing and self-growth. ... 
All This Time is more than just a romance; it is a lesson in working through trauma and tragedy to understand oneself better." -- Shelf Awareness ― October 2020
