Narrator: Eva Kaminsky
Come for a visit to Walker Island where you'll find stunning Pacific Northwest ocean views, men too intriguing to resist...and five close-knit sisters who are each about to find their one true love.
Paige Walker loves her life on Walker Island—teaching dance classes, spending time with her family, and enjoying the beauty all around her. The last thing she's interested in is the spotlight. One fiery brush with that a few years back was more than enough for her! Still, sometimes she can't help but secretly long for more than her quiet life on Walker Island...
TV star Christian Greer has finally gotten his big break starring in a major motion picture. The catch? He needs to learn how to dance like a pro, preferably in a studio far enough from Los Angeles that the paparazzi won't be able to catch any of his stumbles along the way. Walker Island seems like the perfect place to learn to dance and beautiful Paige Walker definitely seems like the perfect teacher.
From their very first lesson, attraction sizzles between them. Christian has never met anyone like Paige and wants their dance to continue beyond the studio. But will he be able to convince her to step into the spotlight with him, and his love, at her side?

It’s quite a project, trying to read all of Bella Andre’s novels, even ones written under a different name. She has quite a back list. But I am determined because, in general, I have enjoyed her books. All for Love was written under the pen name Lucy Kevin, and while it’s more on the sweeter side, with fade to black bedroom scenes, it still has what I expect from a Bella Andre novel, and that is definitely a good thing in my book.
All for Love is the 4th book in the Walker Island series, and focuses on Paige Walker, who is a dance teacher in her small island town. Paige is a talented dancer, but she does have some insecurities, and doesn’t want fame. She doesn’t feel as pretty as her other sisters, and she likes feeling safe on her island home with her family. Paige was an easy heroine to love. I wanted her to be happy, and even take a risk or two, but at the same time, I did understand her caution.
The hero of All for Love is Christian Greer, who is a famous actor. He’s been given the opportunity to star in a remake of a Fred Astaire movie, so he needs to learn to dance, and pretty quickly. He ends up coming to Walker Island to get lessons from Paige. I am happy to say that Christian (in a typical Bella Andre form) is a nice guy. He takes an immediate interest in Paige, and recognizes that there is something wonderful about her.
Also in typical Bella Andre form, Christian and Paige fall for each other super quickly, but for some reason that never bothers me in her books. She always makes me believe it. I wanted Christian and Paige to be together; it was so easy to see how perfect they were for each other. However, some of the aspects of the story I didn’t buy. For example, Christian learning advanced dance technique in a week. I don’t care if he worked on it 24/7, it’s just not possible. But, to be far, that really wasn’t why I was reading the books.
Overall, All for Love was a sweet, adorable, contemporary romance. It’s a very quick read, and I recommend it to those looking for this kind of story.
