Navy SEAL veteran Grant Anderson is no longer the same golden boy he was when he left his small town of Dale, Georgia. An IED took his lower leg, and his wife didn’t stick around long after he was discharged. He’s not ready to come back to Dale and face the past and how far from it he’s come, but his dad is sick, and something’s not adding up in the family business.

Ellie Hall has had a crush on Grant for as long as she can remember. She’s no longer the gawky little girl next door, but having Grant back in town sure makes her feel that way. Helping Grant figure out what’s going on with his father’s business gives her the opportunity she needs to show him just how much she’s grown up.

Grant doesn’t think he’s the man for Ellie. She deserves a hero, not a broken man. But Ellie has her own ideas about what she needs and wants.

Between 3 1/2 and 4 Stars.

I really liked Giving It All, but I wasn't blown away by it. It was sexy as hell at times, which I loved. Grant was a wonderful hero, and I could relate to Ellie. And the cover? Well, the cover is just pure yummy. All in all, it was a quick read for me, and I'd like to try ...more

I have to say it has been ages since I have read a book by Arianna Hart and yet she is still so talented and imaginated I just loved Giving It All. Grant is like all soldiers coming home fighting for the brave and crippled feeling well helpless. His whole life ...more

~~I received a free copy of this book to read and review for Wicked Reads~~

This is a really good read. It has a good mix of romance, a dash of mystery, and some lovely touches of humour. The sexy bits are definitely on the hot scale. Although Grant has issues from his time in the SEALs, he is a well ...more

One of my favorites of 2015!

The premise drew me in and the author delivered one read but then I'm a sucker for a Alpha male, military hero who helps his parents.

The characters were well written and likeable. Both Ellie and Grant survived different hardships but we're able to be be there for each ot ...more

ARC received for review

Great story. Smoking hot former SEAL coming home and the girl next door. Great chemistry between them. Yeah, there was a little angst with him realizing that she loved him even though he wasn't whole. Oh, and a bad guy to catch. Loved her friend Peter. There's previous book th ...more

By Book Gannet August 28, 2015

I love Ellie. I can’t help it, I ended up a total fangirl for her throughout this book. She starts off as a gangly, too-smart teenager who no one ever sees, raised by her grandmother and working as many jobs as she can fit in. As an adult she’s a little less gangly, but she’s still super smart and d ...more

By Romantic Reads and Such September 01, 2015

I can’t believe how much I enjoyed this story. It seemed pretty straightforward – a mixture of tropes that I like (PTSD, returning hero son, childhood crush, popular boy/unpopular girl, a mystery) – but Hart brought great emotion and depth to the story. Some people might get a little tired of Grant’ ...more

Unrequited love, a wounded warrior, an altruistic young woman, and a failing business all add up to having to give it all.
Grant is a former Navy SEAL who lost part of his leg to an IED while deployed in a war zone. He was fortunate enough to be able to purchase an artificial leg that takes advantag ...more

*ARC through NetGalley in exchange for an honest review*

Wounded Warrior comes home to girl next door. Both Ellie and Grant were well-developed characters, well-rounded with plenty of backstory, flaws, redeeming qualities. Human. Relatable. Likable. This was a great read for me in the sense that even ...more

By Katherine September 27, 2015

Really good. Kind of a second-chance romance, the hero and heroine are great people - I’d love Grant to be my boyfriend and Ellie my BFF. Ok, I’d settle for being friends with both of them. The supporting cast are all interesting and good people too. The story showcases all the great things about li ...more

This was a very heartfelt and emotional read, I enjoyed the storyline and the characters were both likable and very relatable.

I highly recommend this book, looking forward to reading more from Arianna Hart in the near future.

A nice woman and a nice man. It's sounds so simple yet seems to be rare in romantic fiction, but Giving It All gets that simple combination just right. Read this - it's good. ...more
