All I've Wanted All I've Needed by A. E. Valdez

This was just the cutest story. πŸ’œ

Harlow's boyfriend and a long-time friend proposed after two years of dating. She said no. For the past two years, it was all about him, never about her. She wasn't even sure if she loved him like that.

To escape heartbreak, her best friends recommend joining them on a trip to Bali for yoga teacher training. She decides to and has a blast. At the end of the training new opportunity comes for a job in Seattle and she takes it. New job, new city, new start. :) She lives at her uncle's guest house, helps out at his coffee house sometimes, and starts to discover her passions.

 There she meets Acyn. They kind of start on the wrong foot when he comments that her coffee is burnt. Acyn has done his share of sleeping around but wants... more. A true relationship with someone and it just happens that that new someone is his sister's new friend. :)

It's a beautiful story of standing up for yourself, discovering your worth, going after your dreams, true friendship, and about finding the person that supports you in that, instead of holding you back.

The story is very hot, extremely romantic and the kind you just can't stop reading, till the end. :) The love story evolves slowly, it's very, very slow burn, but so worth it in the end. :)

Higly recommend it!

Harlow Shaw feels naΓ―ve for believing in happily ever afters but she craves a love that lights her up.

She thought she had it all with her boyfriend. Until his promising baseball career overshadows their relationship and he asks her a life-changing question. It causes her to wonder if what they have is all she ever truly wanted.

Harlow is yearning for more than the curated life she is living.

A trip to Bali, a move to Seattle, and a “burned” cup of coffee lead her to a friendship she didn’t know she needed and a love so deep she can feel it in her bones.
