All You Desire (Eternal Ones #2) by Kirsten Miller
Genre: Young Adult (Paranormal Romance)
Date Published: August 9, 2011
Publisher: The Penguin Group


Haven Moore fled to Rome a year ago, leaving behind the Ouroboros Society and its diabolical leader, Adam Rosier. Now she's back in New York City with her beloved Iain. But Iain's supposed to be dead. And if they blow his cover, Adam won't give them any second chances.

Meanwhile, Beau Decker is missing. His life rests in Haven's hands. The Horae, a group of mystical sisters, hold the key to Beau's fate. They want to lock Adam away forever, and Haven is his only weakness. To save Beau, Haven must seduce Adam and lure him into the Horae's lair.

But Adam Rosier has always had a funny way of seducing her. And the closer Haven gets to her enemy, the more she succumbs to his spell. Beau's life hangs in the balance - but this time, Haven can't even trust herself. Every decision she makes will shape her destiny.

How far will she go for the people she loves?

All You Desire is the second book in the Eternal Ones duology by Kirsten Miller. Why does Haven always trust the wrong people? I was a little disappointed with this book. As a reader, I figured things out way before Haven did, and then it was frustrating watching her scramble about when things seemed so obvious. Adam intrigues me though. I know he's king of chaos or whatever, but he is probably the most interesting character in this story. I'm not sure why he is so hung up on Haven. The book never really explains that, but I'd like to know, because I think he'd get bored with her. Maybe it's the old "always want what you can't have" thing. I do feel the chemistry between them though. I don't really feel it between her and Iain. I enjoyed all the glimpses into the past within this book. It seemed like we got even more of them this time than in the first book, and they always grabbed my interest. The story flowed nicely, and it was fast paced for the most part. We're left with a wide open ending. It makes you think there will be a third book, but when I looked at the author's website, she says this is the last one. I don't feel like it's over though.

Check out my review of the first book in this duology!

Like all writers, I live in Brooklyn. (I’m only half kidding—I see Martin Amis in the grocery store twice a week. I'm pretty sure he doesn't see me.) Sometimes I work in advertising. My eight-year-old daughter thinks this toothbrush commercial is my greatest accomplishment in life. (For the record, I didn’t direct, write or produce the spot. I’m only responsible for the strategy that inspired it. But seriously—you can’t go wrong with a Philips Sonicare.)
