    This was a perfect ending to the series. I fell in love with Billy and Katie since book 1. The good, the bad and the hell they went through for the past 2 books was unreal but I could not wait for this book to have my happy and closure for this couple. At the beginning of this book I was thinking that Katie was gonna give up but then by the middle of it when Billy shows up it just seems like FINALLY there is communication and so freakin happy that they make the decisions they make.

    This was a perfect ending to the series. I fell in love with Billy and Katie since book 1.

At the beginning of this book I was thinking that Katie was gonna give up but then by the middle of it when Billy shows up it just seems like FINALLY there is communication and so freakin happy that they make the decisions they make. Im happy that they finally get all their answers out in the open and focus on themselves together as a couple. This book had exactly everything I love to read which is boy meets girl, they fall in love, have happy at the beginning, struggles begin throughout which just shows that no marriage is perfect, tragedies happen throughout, heartbreak, sadness, therapy, happy again and a perfect ending for the whole family. This was well worth waiting : )

    This was a wonderful end to a wonderful series! I was an emotional read because some of it touches close to home, but I was truly impressed with the loving and thoughtful way Karen takes us through Katies journey of self discovery and recovery. I loved her new friends and the way they helped her to be herself again and enjoy life. And Billy, he needed to grow up, he manages to do so and finally finds peace within himself. This books shows us that love can be forever, but it has to be maintained

    This was a wonderful end to a wonderful series! I was an emotional read because some of it touches close to home, but I was truly impressed with the loving and thoughtful way Karen takes us through Katie´s journey of self discovery and recovery. I loved her new friends and the way they helped her to be herself again and enjoy life. And Billy, he needed to grow up, he manages to do so and finally finds peace within himself. This books shows us that love can be forever, but it has to be maintained with hard work, communication, compassion, patience, honesty, trust and forgiveness. And of course, I loved Joey and Tom with all my heart. Amazing series, Karen Cimms has a flawless writing style. And she can make you fell every emotion deep in your soul. I will read anything she writes.

    Author Karen Cimms leads readers on a beautifully written journey about forgiveness and unconditional love. There are so many books about falling in love, but it is difficult to find stories where staying in love is explored. This book showcases the personal journey back from heartbreak and despair and delves deeply into the causes of the characters' pain and how they must fight to live through all that they've endured. Love isn't a fairy tale, and Karen Cimms explores all of the darkness present in the love shared between Katie and Billy. Their relationship is flawed but real, and this book offers readers so much more than a typical romance, it is about the healing process and learning that in order to forgive others, one must learn to forgive themselves. I know that Billy and Kate will stay with me for a very long time. I loved every minute of All I Ever Wanted!

    Review to follow

    I finished this series late last night and wanted to take a few before I started my review. First let me say that I REALLY like this series. It spans 25 years, two people find each other and we watch them fall in love, have that love tested time and time again to come whole at the other side.

    The one thing that I liked about this story is while the two main characters. truly love each other, sometimes that is just not enough.

    I finished this series late last night and wanted to take a few before I started my review. First let me say that I REALLY like this series. It spans 25 years, two people find each other and we watch them fall in love, have that love tested time and time again to come whole at the other side.

    The one thing that I liked about this story is while the two main characters. truly love each other, sometimes that is just not enough.

    Both of them have childhoods while different, are similar none the less. One emotional and one physical. They struggle to stay together until drugs, alcohol and their insecurities get in the way.

    We watch our female character find her way back and in the process helps her man and her family heal as well.

    I enjoyed all the books but I think that I liked the second....We All Fall Down the best. Recommend these books for anyone that enjoys reading about characters that struggle through hard times and come out whole on the other side.

    Ugh. I am not sure where to begin. All I Ever Wanted is the third and final book in the Of love and Madness Series. This book will give you all the feels. And, I am not just saying that. Over the course of the series, I have felt right along with the characters: anger, sadness, grief, betrayal and joy.

    Ugh. I am not sure where to begin. All I Ever Wanted is the third and final book in the Of love and Madness Series. This book will give you all the feels. And, I am not just saying that. Over the course of the series, I have felt right along with the characters: anger, sadness, grief, betrayal and joy. The first book was an introduction of sorts into the young lives of Billy and Kate and the struggles they faced personally, together as a couple and professionally. The second book was a continuation of those struggles, only exemplified since they had their own family, were older and faced unthinkable tragedies. But this book, this was my favorite. Because it was how Billy, Kate and their family found their way back to themselves and each other. It was so beautifully written, I could not have asked for a better conclusion to their story. I was proud of myself for not shedding a tear and then once I finished, I cried. I cried for all they lost, for all they went through, for their strength, for their love and for the the fact that their story is over. I encourage you to read it and I dare you not to cry.

    Wow oh wow, after trying to clean the house and take the kids to sport and carrying this book around the house just trying to finish, as I just COULDN'T PUT IT DOWN.

    It's the conclusion to "At this moment" the first half of the book finds Kate with post traumatic stress trying to cope day to day and seeing a Psychiatrist not much is really mentioned about Billy and her family. Then finally the book comes together when Kate gets in touch with her son. I didn't cry through any of the books but at 7

Such a beautiful love story. ❤️Just loved Billy. Just read it, I'm sure you will love it as much as I did.

    Their love was just over the top for me! It was love at first sight, to heartbreak, to overcoming unimaginable obstacles, to being there from a far because that is what the love of your life NEEDS from you. God, it was just so emotional! I laughed, cried, cheered, sat on edge, clenched my fists, held my breath and watched everything come full circle.

    The writing was spectacular! Character development was on point! It was written in 3rd person and I didn't even realize it until I was almost done with the second book because I was that hooked on their story I didn't care how it was told just as long as I could keep turning the pages!!

    I will definitely recommend it to all my friends! Simply amazing!!

    Ok I didn't want to write anything until I finished all three books in this series. Now I have to say, wow this was really amazing. It made me laugh and it really made me cry.

    Sometimes I really wanted to smack both Billy and Kate and say "WTF are you doing??" "Can't you see what the hell you are doing to each other?" But whew thank goodness they finally got it together.

    I did feel like we were missing a lot between the second and the last books. I'm hoping that leaves the possibility of maybe som

    Ok I didn't want to write anything until I finished all three books in this series. Now I have to say, wow this was really amazing. It made me laugh and it really made me cry.

    Sometimes I really wanted to smack both Billy and Kate and say "WTF are you doing??" "Can't you see what the hell you are doing to each other?" But whew thank goodness they finally got it together.

    I did feel like we were missing a lot between the second and the last books. I'm hoping that leaves the possibility of maybe some novellas to fill in the blanks. (Hint hint please)

    I didn't want to say goodbye to these characters, and maybe I'm grasping at the hope that we may have a spin off??

    I noticed the possibilities with some the supporting characters getting a second

    chance at a HEA (*cough,cough* Tommy)

    Thank you for a great story
