Reviewed by Vernita Naylor for Readers' Favorite

When you think about love at first sight, what resonates with you? In All At Once by Vera Mae, meeting Lyle Baird, a hot TV celebrity, in a stuck elevator was fate for Jayne Ross. During their time together in the elevator, an instant love reaction occurred. All At Once is a love story, an up close and personal look at love at first sight. Jayne couldn't believe her luck. Could she and Lyle really be in love? Could this be a dream? Did Lyle feel the same way as Jayne did? It was surreal how she and Lyle had established such a great connection. One day everything changes when Lyle suddenly disappears. Jayne begins to revisit her relationship with Lyle to help her to work through Lyle’s sudden disappearing act. She questions if it was really love at first sight or just a passing phase?

All At Once by Vera Mae is a great book for those readers that enjoy romance novels. Love can be lost, found, or pose as a missed opportunity. In All At Once, watching through the eyes of Jayne and Lyle as they each navigated through their own life hurdles while trying to blend their beings with another can be challenging. The story shows that we are all searching for that connection with a special someone, no matter who they are. As the old adage by Alfred Lord Tennyson goes: “'Tis better to have loved and lost than never to have loved at all.”


I read the book and found it very captivating. Well written and seductive. It allows one to go inside the characters and feel their feelings. Well done, a great read. Looking for more from Vera.
