From the Back Cover
A broken woman . . .
Crystal learned long ago that love brings only pain. Feeling nothing at all is far better than being hurt again. She guards her wounded heart behind a hard exterior and carries within her a deep mistrust of men, who, in her experience, have only ever used and taken.
A man in need of help . . .
Then Gabriel Dalton walks into her life. Despite the terrible darkness of his past, there's an undeniable goodness in him. And even though she knows the cost, Crystal finds herself drawn to Gabriel. His quiet strength is wearing down her defenses and his gentle patience is causing her to question everything she thought she knew.
Only love can mend a shattered heart . . .
Crystal and Gabriel never imagined that the world, which had stolen everything from them, would bring them a deep love like this. Except fate will only take them so far, and now the choice is theirs: Harden their hearts once again or find the courage to shed their painful pasts.

Mia’s books are so meaningful and exceptionally beautiful you are frequently in tears or just need a moment to absorb the words. My heart absolutely ached for both Gabriel and Ellie and their traumatic pasts that they both dealt with in extremely different ways.
If you've read the magnificent ‘Archer's Voice’, you'll adore Gabriel and his intuitive observations. Gabriel is kind, gentle and has this sense of calmness about him. He has such a warm disposition and a positive outlook on life. His interactions with people leave them feeling valued. He also has a very vulnerable side to him and he wants to explore that more so he can take more steps to move forward in his personal life. This is how he meets Ellie.
Ellie lives week to week, struggling to get by in a job she hates but she has no choice in staying as she needs to survive financially. Gabriel is a customer and she catches his eye. It is not her beauty that grabs his interest however rather he can sense something else in her, an ability to mask pain and he really wants to get to know her...
‘If eyes were the windows to the soul, I’d witnessed the CLOSED sign being flipped over within the speed of a single blink. How long had it taken her to master that?’
Once again, like all of Mia’s books there is drama and angst galore in ‘Most of all You’ and although a love story, this is one very much based on the building of a very beautiful yet fragile friendship.
‘Our pasts-and our hearts-aligned in such a way that we were meant to heal each other.’
From the heartbreaking prologue to the very last page, I was held captive by the beautiful words that Mia weaved into such an incredible story. It truly is a work of art... 5 beautiful Stars.
What I liked about 'Most of All You':
1. As usual, Mia was patient and sensitive regarding the unfolding of the plot and the MC's growing relationship.
2. Links and questions all came together in the conclusion (except, I wondered about William 😁).
3. The plot was multilayered, unique and thought-provoking.
4. Gabriel, oh Gabriel!
5. Mia's natural story-telling skills.
6. I am always impressed by how Mia shows the cathartic power of love.
My only criticisms: the final third(ish) seemed a little crowded and it didn't engage me quite as much as the preceding chapters.
Was it just me, or did Mia change her style a little in this book? Admittedly, I need to be in the right 'head-space' to read Mia Sheridan because I know I'll be moved and the experience will stay with me. My favourite remains 'Archer's Voice', but 'Most of All You' was certainly a good read.
