Seventeen-year-old Kari meets Neil Mars. “Neil as in Armstrong and Mars…as in Bruno.” A boy who beats every vampire, werewolf, highlander fantasy Kari has ever had. But she knows she can’t get close to him. Not ever. Because that would mean telling him everything. Coming clean. And Kari can’t bear the idea of changing the way Neil looks at her. Like she’s the only girl in the world. His reverence is something too precious to lose. Perhaps even at the cost of losing him.
But Kari doesn't know why Neil calls her his ‘Angel’ and when she finds out, she realizes what love is all about. Boundless joy, unending longing and a fuckload of heartache.

“I can take care of myself,” I tell him.
His lips twitch in response. “Oh, I’m sure you can, little shrub.”
“You are warned!” I take my voice down a notch and point my ring at him, “I’ll tunnel your leathery knighthood right out of this galaxy!”
Neil suddenly halts in his tracks and pins me down with his eyes. “Batman vs. Green Lantern? Batman wins. Every. Single. Time.”
“Ohmygod! So not true. In the…”
He cuts me. “One word…yellow.” I stare at him with my mouth half-open.
“‘Nuff said,” he says smugly and then tugs on my hand.
All My Life is a story about a teenage girl who falls in love with the wrong guy at first so that she can fall for the right one further down the road. Sounds cheesy and typical right? Wrong. What you'll find in this story is a girl who unfortunately is introduced to love with a slap in the face but has the most unlikely path to finding out what real love is all about. I thought Kari's story about pain and suffering was one that all girls will relate too, even if her story has never happened to them. Will Kari find her happily ever after with Neil? Or will her past cause her to run off the tracks forever?I really liked Kari as a character. I thought her transition from young and naive to paranoid and quite was something that I completely understood. Obviously considering her situation with Eddie, she had life really tech her a lesson in what trusting someone meant. I thought you could clearly see the change within herself right on the page, meaning there was a difference in the words written defined by what was going on within the story. That was refreshing. I always love to see a characters growth during a story and Kari went from good to bad and back again a number of times, and you could tell. That is not easy to accomplish. Plus, you can tell what her emotions are at all times during the story, which is a lot on insight into a character. Bravo.
