This is the complete duet of ALL I WANT & ALL I NEED. BOOK 1: ALL I WANT Right time. Right place. Right woman. I was blowing off steam when a guys’ trip led to a hot fling. She was exactly what I needed for our ten days together. I said I’d never fall in love. I said I’d never get attached. We were never supposed to see each other again. We were never supposed to be anything more. But when she comes back into my life, I remind myself of one thing: Wrong place. Wrong time. Wrong man. ______________________________________________________ BOOK 2: ALL I NEED Right time. Right place. Perfect woman. Can a leopard really change its spots? Normally, I’d say there’s no way. But then, she has been the exception to my rule from day one. We weren’t supposed to see each other again. We weren’t supposed to fan the spark into an inferno. There’s no turning back now. All I have to do is convince her of one thing: Right time. Right place. Right Man.
