~ Synopsis ~
WARNING: This book is not intended for anyone under the age of 18, offended easily by steamy sex scenes and/or foul language. A sex-god’s story will most definitely melt your panties off, so have an extra pair on standby…maybe two pair.
Ethan “Blues” Sloane tells all about his time on the inside of the Southeast’s most notorious drug cartel. The chaos that comes with being the second in command of the deadly X’kapz is nothing compared to the anarchy that ensues when Blues meets Angel.
Baptized into the world of the southeast’s leading drug cartel, Ethan Sloane lives an existence riddled with betrayal. Raised the eldest son of the Lieutenant in the infamous X’kapz cartel, Ethan’s grim reality is accepting his fate of walking in his father’s footsteps. Buried beneath deep layers of trained acceptance and lies, lurks a decent man needing escape. Ethan breaks through the hard surface of deceit, extracting his covetedfreedom.
Resurfacing exactly the opposite of what he fears the fates planned, Ethan becomes a well respected Atlanta Police Officer, finally on the right side of the law. Even living the good life, he is driven with a relentless desire to inflict punishment for the wrong committed against his family. Deciding that retribution is worth throwing away the good, he goes undercover toinfiltrate the deadly X’kapz. Almost immediately, Ethan “Blues” Sloane is promoted to second in command, the same role once held by his father.
Unexpectedly, Blues discovers that drugs aren’t the only thing in this world that is addictive. Angel is the erotically beautiful woman with thegood girl history mixed with a bad girl attitude. She is a major distractionfor a man whose one constant is obtaining the truth. Evading Angel’s allureso that he can finish what he started and get everyone that he cares about out alive becomes a difficult mission. In his shadowy hell, she is the lone beacon guiding him toward something better.
Lies can drown a person, consume and erase one’s soul. Nevertheless, if used properly they also hold the power to save. Keeping his undercover role a secret is paramount to everyone’s survival. Unfortunately for Blues, withholding the truth from Angel equals giving up all hope of a life that promises true love. Blues discovers that giving up something that youdesperately crave is easier said than done. This isn’t a pretty story, nothing about drugs ever is, but the romance that surfaces within the dark life of a cop submerged under the criminal’s lies is Ethan’s, and can only be called All Blues.
~ Excerpt ~
“Blues…watch me,” she encourages as she wraps cool fingers around the base of my dick. I hiss, bringing my attention back to her. She looks up at me and then back down to watch her hand stroking over the length. I study her slow, torturous tempo and feel my self-control unraveling as my cock strains to grow bigger in her hand. The tip of her thumb edges along the thick vein on the front, stroking upward to the tip. And then it circles, pressing roughly over the head, massaging in the wetness. Longing to sink deeply inside of her pussy, my balls tighten, and I watch as she tips her head downward.
Her eyes flutter closed as she seals her velvety lips around my erection and groans. “Jesus Christ, your mouth…oh baby.” Slowly, the words fall softly from my mouth, barely containing my self-control. “So. Fucking. Good.” I want to insist that she keeps her eyes on mine, but I know that she’ll only use her taunting mouth, mesmerizing hands, or that perfectly round ass to distract me, so that she can take control over me again. What can I say? I am a sucker for all things Angel. Tonight though, I want to prove to her how good it can be between us, without her being afraid of losing herself. My soul already knows that we are perfectly matched. She just needs to understand that we should take this once in a lifetime chance. We deserve this love.
Life for neither of us was easy. It has been shaken, stirred, faulty and hurtful. The flaws in our lives are all part of our journey, and despite that brokenness we were blessed enough to find each other. Every decision, even the painful ones, led our pathways to cross back at the jazz club in that perfect moment in time, where her allure intrigued me. Later, her love-making crazed me, and then without even knowing it, she has captured my heart with every other enticing aspect. I was the darkness, forged by a filthy world. Until this angel crossed my path, I never knew that I needed rescuing. When I thought that I could be nothing more than a man with a black heart, her radiant energy busted through the murkiness, illuminating my world and becoming the focus of my future. I’ve fallen, and I plan to remain at her side, holding out my arms so that I can be the one to catch her when she falls too.
~ Review by Angela ~
*I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.*
All Blues is a fantastic, gripping, sexy, roller coaster of a ride. Ethan “Blues” Sloane is a manly hunk of a man that’s not going to let anything or anyone get in his way of taking down the people that wronged him. But, he doesn’t plan on meeting Angel, an enticingly volatile and dangerous woman that Blues can’t stop thinking about.
Marie’s writing just gets better and better. Her sex scenes are intense and are very vivid and imaginative. However, this story isn’t just sex; there is a lot of mystery, intrigue, drama, etc going on at the same time. Blues is a very demanding character in everything he does and he is definitely the kind of man that women want in real life. He is caring, giving, loving, but troubled as well. Angel is mysterious, sensual, head strong, and can’t keep popping up when Blues least expects it.
This is an amazing story to go along with the All series. It is a hefty read, but it doesn’t feel like it when you are reading it. You are clinging to the pages trying not to rush ahead to see what happens because then you would miss the lyrical writing style that is all Marie’s. I don’t like romance novels, but I’ll read any that Marie writes. 5 books

My top faves are Game of Thrones, Persons of Interest, Sons of Anarchy, True Blood, Walking Dead, and recently I’ve added StarCross & the 100 to the lineup. I love Facebook, but hate to overload the news feed with posts about me, so you’ll see more shares than original posts, unless they are about my books. I have a blog, but I suck at updating it. I hope to find time to connect and use it as an outlet for my insane ramblings, but don’t count on it. If you love my books, please follow my fan page Marie Wathen Author.
