All or Nothing
Rules are made to be broken...
A past he couldn’t forget
Adam Barton is living his dream of working as a firefighter in his small Texas town, but a tragedy from his youth continues to haunt him. He decides New York City is the perfect place to start a new life and joins the FDNY, living and loving his own way—no strings and nothing personal. Until he catches sight of Rico Estevez, the sexy chef with the mysterious smile who rocks his world. After one explosive night together, Adam craves another….And then another. The more he and Rico are together, the more Adam wants him.
A future he never imagined
Rico Estevez is living a lie. For years he’s hidden his sexuality, afraid to hurt the career of his politically ambitious father. He’s the perfect American―the best schools, top of his class and most importantly, to his father, a successful businessman. Who needs a boyfriend when sex is so easy to find? Starting a torrid love affair with Adam Barton isn’t a problem; neither one is looking toward forever. But Rico’s father is about to get the chance of a lifetime and Rico feels forced to play by his rules.

Adam proves more unforgettable than Rico ever imagines, but he gives in to family pressures above personal desire. When a fire reunites them, both men discover their passion for each other hasn’t died; rather it’s stronger than ever. Want turns to need and something more dangerous to their hearts—love. Adam and Rico know if they want to have it all, they can let no one and nothing stand in their way of a life together.
“You know what’s funny, though?” Adam’s slight Texas twang had become a bit more pronounced, and Rico couldn’t help but smile.
“Now that I’m here, I miss New York.”
“Yeah? What do you miss?”
“You’ll think I’m crazy.”
“Nah,” he said jokingly. “I already know you are. Tell me. It’s the coffee, right? Or the pizza? Oh, wait. Must be dirty-water dogs from the cart you said were your guilty pleasure?”
“None of the above.”
Rain began to patter against the windows, and Rico stretched out, enjoying the back-and-forth with Adam, hoping that their talk might help ease some of Adam’s heartache dealing with such a tragedy.
“It was you.”
Rico’s smile faltered, and his heart began to pound. No one had ever said that to him; he’d never gotten close enough for anyone to miss him when he left.
“Me?” He couldn’t help his voice cracking a bit.
“Funny, right? I mean, yeah, we’ve fucked around, and I know we said no strings, but—”
“It’s okay. I get it.” Shocked at how...
