All of Me: Starlight Hill Audible Audiobook – Unabridged
What would you do for a second chance with your first love?
Welcome to wine country and the small town of Starlight Hill, California, where the wine flows freely and so does the gossip. The town has never quite forgiven Ivey Lancaster for leaving their favorite son, Dr. Jeff Garner, when she met a man on an online dating site. But while the people of the township took sides, the truth of her absence is something Ivey doesn't want anyone to know.
When a sudden change of plans forces Ivey to work with her hunky ex, she must keep it professional or risk her heart all over again.

Still it is a really good story and I thoroughly enjoyed it. I didn't read this version just to get to the sexy parts but the story is a second chance romance. Teenage lovers right through college. Then he enters med school. He wants to be a doctor more than anything. It is hard, studying until all hours, interning in hospitals for very little pay, long hours and no sleep. The stress has a lot of students dropping out at this stage. He is determined to be a doctor. His parents struggled to get through all the schools and he is wants to make them proud.
Ivey is the ever faithful girlfriend. She discovers she is pregnant but before she can tell Jeff he tells her he needs a break all the responsibility and pull on his time and energy has him at his wits end. He just feels like he needs something to give. Ivey hears him saying he wants to break up with her. She knows if she tells him about the baby he will marry her but he has indicated he is just not ready to add that to his already stressed load. She is crushed but she loves him enough that she wants him to finish school and become a doctor. Her aunt pays for her to go to L.A. and have the baby. She plans to do that and she will keep the baby and raise it herself. Somewhere after he is a doctor she will tell him about the baby and he can decide if he wants to be in his/her life. so she leaves town. Well, I just realized I am telling too much of the story. So, I am going to stop and just say this. I definitely recommend a very good read. Lovely love story and great characters.
I was not paid for this review. I am not a writer nor do I know one. I am not kin to this author. I am a reader and this is my opinion, nothing more, nothing less. 8/5/2020
If you want to sit back and relax, this is a good afternoon read or can be a good bedtime story. You might find yourself siding with both main characters, Jeff and Ivey. Their reasons are credible, but if only one of them had spoken up, they would have missed a lot of pain.
The book is listed as a RomCom but I didn’t see it that way. Yes, I giggled a couple times but it just didn’t seem like a romantic comedy. That doesn’t mean I didn’t like it. I did. But what was meant to be funny didn’t come across that way. Actually, those small town residents were more petty than funny. Pink and Blue Ribbons to show which side you’re on? Leaving a woman stranded on the roadside because you are a blue ribbon supporter, and she was a pink? Don’t think so.

I liked the interesting community interaction and the details about the blue and pink ribbons representing the involvement of the small community in the relationship of Jeff and Ivey, and also thought the young doctor's life was truly depicted and including various patient stories did a lot to add interest to the story.
Overall, it was a reasonably well written and an easy read (only 14 chapters), but I didn't really feel that I got to know the characters very well.
Jeff and Ivey have such a strong connection just like magnets. Even in a town of ribbon localities, white colour ex husbands and wine you'll find a compelling reason to laugh and cry with this couple.
