All Or Nothing at All is my first novel by author Jennifer Probst. I liked this novel, I loved the way the story flowed and kept me entertained however I had trouble connecting with the characters in the middle and towards the end.
This novel is told in the POVs of Sydney and Tristan.
Sydney has loved Tristan practically her whole life but has always felt that loves was unrequited. One night Tristan reaches his breaking point with his father’s pushy ways and judgement so he decides to leave and head to New York City to pursue his dreams and find himself. unbeknownst to him leaving a pregnant Sydney behind. Now six years later Tristan is back and all of Sydney’s lies are about to be uncovered.
When reading novels, I tend to like them more on the realistic side of things and this novel had flaws that made it unrealistic. I also really loved Tristan in the beginning but towards the end I found him to be a typical asshole male. He was also a tad bit childish. I felt sorry for Sydney and the shit he put her through. No matter how much wrong a person does, you don’t fight fire with fire. Tristan acted like a baby with his ‘it’s my way or no way now’ mentality.
I did however, love the connection between Becca and Tristan, I found myself tearing up during their scenes. It was sweet and everything I expect out of a father/daughter reunion. I also loved the fact that no matter what Becca was looked after and cared for. Tristan and Sydney’s drama never touched her.
Overall, I did enjoy All or Nothing at All but had trouble connecting with characters and actually seeing their reason for acting the way they acted.
Peace Love and Happy Reading,
