Jack rubbed the back of his neck. “Right. Well, if you’re determined to do this, Veronica has the guest room all set up for you in the apartment until you leave for the chalet near Scranton at the end of the week. Do you have everything you’ll need?”
“I have to pick up ski equipment, but the rest is in the truck Tim provided. By the way, what did your operative have to say about all this?”
Greg watched the color seep into Jack’s face. Obviously, the mighty Livy wasn’t as happy with the situation as Veronica had said she’d be. He frowned.
“Nothing yet, but she’ll be fine. Don’t worry. You’ll meet her shortly. We’ve got a great cover story established for you both.”
Greg gawked, and fought not to lose his temper. Something in Jack’s voice told him things were definitely not fine. “She doesn’t know yet, does she?” His voice conveyed his irritation. “It’s too late to back out now and come up with another plan.”
Jack ran his hand through his hair, disarranging it. Greg could see the man was worried, and it didn’t calm his own unsettled nerves. Lord, this has to work.
“I know. Believe me, I know.” Jack’s frustration was evident. “I expected her early yesterday, but her plane was delayed because of bad weather. I couldn’t speak to her about this over the airport phone. Veronica’s convinced we have nothing to worry about. She says she won’t let us down, and since my wife knows her better than anyone, I’ll have to take her word for it. Livy’s been after me for assignments with more meat to them, and she won’t find anything more exciting than this cloak and dagger business. That’s what’s bothering me. Not only am I convinced this plan is full of holes, not knowing who’s behind the threats makes it almost impossible to eliminate them. You’re still convinced it’s personal and not political?”
“I am, and the note proves it. For what it’s worth, you don’t have to worry about me. I’ll play my part. Marrying a stranger is the last thing I want, but I’ll do what I must for my daughter. Let’s hope your woman is as good as you say she is and as agreeable as Veronica believes.”

Bethany-Kris's Review of All For Love
****Five out of Five Stars****
Greg Simmons, a famous author constantly looking over his shoulder, has lost everything he holds dear ... except his daughter. A tragic accident took away his daughter's mother, leaving him to raise the girl who blames him for her mother's death alone. But, someone is out to get Greg and destroy what he haves left, but he's not willing to give it up. For his daughter, he'll do anything to keep her safe safe. Even marrying a complete stranger--for real--to keep up the facade.
Olivia Marshall has also lost those she was close to in a terrible skiing/avalanche accident. Her once promising career in competitive skiing ended that day and she vowed to never get back on the slopes again. Her new job as a bodyguard to Greg Simmon's daughter will put her front and center to her greatest fears again, but she's nothing if not determined. Can these two make it through together, and alive?
Susanne Matthews tells a great story and All For Love was no exception in my case. She has yet to fail me with her romantic suspense's. I would say All For Love was a little different from her norm, considering there is a bit more religious undertones to this one. It was done without being a focus or overbearing, so I didn't mind. It wasn't the overall story teller, but rather, pieces of the character's persona that was important to them as a person.
Nonetheless, Mrs. Matthews keeps a reading turning the page, wanting to know what comes next, who is behind it all, and why. I read this book in two sit-downs (I only break for life, you know). Greg will tug at your heartstrings with his love and devotion. Olivia with tug,too, but she also makes the reader want to cheer for her throughout the novel. Sometimes, you just want to hug them, too.
Descriptive writing that makes the reader believe they're a part of the action, seeing the book through the character's eyes, a great plot, and awesome characters makes All For Love one of my favorite Matthews novels yet ...
Then again, I've said that before. Until the next one.
