About this ebook

Stand-alone Crossroads Bodyguards romance, complete with HEA—and plenty of heat and heart along the way! 

Sexy, newly single, former Marine Andrew Charles Elliot IV, aka Ace, was ready for a life with no drama and no one to answer to. After a broken engagement and twelve years in the Corps he hoped his fresh start in Harper’s Crossing would be just what he needed. But after laying eyes on his new neighbor, he knew all he really needed was her…


Stephanie Holland excelled at taking care of others both at work as a nurse and as an incredible big sister to her twin siblings. The gorgeous redhead had no room to think of anyone else…that is until he moved next door…


After years of putting the needs of others before her own, would she be able to surrender to the idea of someone taking care of her? Would Ace be able to convince her that he wanted to be there for her—mind, body and soul? Could he make her see that she was All He Needs?

Melanie Shawn manages to write a fantastic book EVERY SINGLE TIME! This writing duo never disappoints. I adored this story. I loved sexy, swoony, southern accent Ace and the way he fell head over heels for Stephanie. Stephanie is probably my favorite woman in the series. She is simply incredible. Strong, resilient, focused, loyal, caring, the list goes on and on. She is someone to admire! These two were beyond perfect for each other. I loved how they complimented each other in just about every way. I loved that Ace didn't see Stephanie's loyalty of caring for her siblings as a burden, but as another reason to love her more. What a sexy, fun, perfect read!!!!!!

This was such a fun, sexy, sweet read with a bit of mystery thrown in to it. Ace and Stephanie are seriously the perfect couple. Their personalities compliment each other so well, and Ace is the epitome of sexy with a huge side of protectiveness. Stephanie has been kinda stepped on all her life, and I love that it didn't affect her attitude towards life too much. The anxiety I felt towards the end of the book was crazy (and I couldn't figure out who I wanted to smack the most). The authors gave us a look in to what some parents/guardians deal with when it comes to disabilities, and I feel they nailed it. This book is definitely a must read!!

If you want to read an outstanding example of love at first sight then you must read All He Needs by Melanie Shawn. This is book 10 of The Crossroads Series, which is located in Harper’s Crossing, and a standalone story,. Stephanie Holland was the responsible one. She excelled at taking care of others at work as a nurse. She also was an amazing big sister to her twin siblings after her mom checked out of parenting. Andrew Charles Elliot, aka Ace, a former marine and is given a fresh start on life after a broken engagement, which didn’t break him up. After Ace sees Stephanie, he next door neighbor, he knew all he really needed was her. Once Ace moves in next door, Stephanie can’t think of anyone else but him despite thinking he is trouble. After years of putting the needs of everyone else before her, is Stephanie ready to give in to the idea of someone else taking care of her? My favorite part of the book is Ace reflecting on relationship advice his Grandma Lulu gave him. “If you want a good relationship you gotta have the four Ls: love. lust, laughter, and loyalty. And if you’re lucky enough to find that, then you gotta have the four Cs to build on that foundation: communication, compromise, compatibility, and conflict.” I enjoyed All He Needs and was delighted with the way Melanie Shawn allowed Stephanie and Ace to discover each other as well as learn to trust one another. The characters were well written, authentic and complex. The story line was riveting and kept my attention to the very end. I genuinely enjoyed reading this book and I highly recommend this book to other readers. I am looking forward to reading the next installment of the Crossroad Series. I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this book.
