    All In With Him is book three in the Men of Summer series by Lauren Blakely. This is the continuation of Grant and Declan’s journey together. You need to read this series in order. I don’t know how Lauren Blakely seems to know just what I need when I need it. Because I needed this book! I was already in love with Grant and Declan. But she still found ways to make me swoon, to make me love them even more. “Live well and play hard. But I’m adding a third. Love big.” Grant and Declan are back to All In With Him is book three in the Men of Summer series by Lauren Blakely. This is the continuation of Grant and Declan’s journey together. You need to read this series in order. I don’t know how Lauren Blakely seems to know just what I need when I need it. Because I needed this book! I was already in love with Grant and Declan. But she still found ways to make me swoon, to make me love them even more. “Live well and play hard. But I’m adding a third. Love big.” Grant and Declan are back together and they are in love. Declan moved in with Grant when he returned to San Francisco but now comes the hard part, learning the things that makes each other happy, or not happy. Declan is the private one, the quiet one, where Grant likes to live his life bigger, louder. He likes to dance, be around people, all things that Declan struggles with. These two are determined to do whatever it takes to make the other happy. Do they struggle along the way, yes! They both suffer a bit from the fear of losing the other. Of not being enough for him. But they also learn. They learn to communicate, they learn to listen. They learn to compromise. But most of all, they just love. “He is my calm.” Even though they live in the same city, they play on different teams. And a professional baseball player’s life is spent largely on the road during baseball season. So while Grant and Declan are learning how to be a couple, they are having to do a lot of it long distance. That means not being able to be there at times when the other needs him. But they make it work. And they always come home to each other. “Though we can bend, though we can buckle, we can’t break.” Maybe it’s just my current state of mind, maybe it’s just because I already loved these two so much, but this might be my favorite book of the series. My heart was in a constant state of swoon all the way through. Neither of these men had ever been in love with anyone else. Learning how to navigate their feelings is something they are doing together. And I loved that they did just that, did it together. Up until now, I had a favorite MM couple, Conner and Rocky from the In Midsummer series by Jessica Frances. But I’m afraid they are going to have to scoot over now and share that podium with Grant and Declan. Like Conner and Rocky, I’m not going to forget Grant and Declan. And wow, the epilogues! Yes, that’s with an “s!” We get a beautiful look into the future of what their lives look like and it was amazing. As I said at the top, you have to read this series in order. And I hope that you do, so you can fall in love, just as I did. “I want all the somedays with him.” For more about this book and so many others, come and visit me at Carol's Crazy Bookish World. https://www.facebook.com/groups/Carol...

    Five stars for the epic conclusion of Lauren Blakely's Men of Summer series!! A story that spans decades with heartbreak and life's challenges Declan & Grant finally got their true HEA!! Quick note, you do need to read book one Scoring With Him followed by book two Winning With Him before you get into the final book All In With Him. These three books span a course of five years and longer in the third book. If you don't read those two first, you will be lost. For Declan and Grant getting to their Five stars for the epic conclusion of Lauren Blakely's Men of Summer series!! A story that spans decades with heartbreak and life's challenges Declan & Grant finally got their true HEA!! Quick note, you do need to read book one Scoring With Him followed by book two Winning With Him before you get into the final book All In With Him. These three books span a course of five years and longer in the third book. If you don't read those two first, you will be lost. For Declan and Grant getting to their happily ever after was not easy but now that they have started their loves together, they are starting to realize that finding love isn't as hard as keeping it. Making a relationship work is hard but with constant communication and consideration for one another they are making things really work. When Grant poses the question about children Declan is taken aback. Children was not something he has ever thought of, and he wants to give Grant everything he could ever want but how can he be a good parent when his own dad messed up his life so terribly? Grant is in love and life is great but as their relationship starts to slip past the "honeymoon phase" he realizes that this is when real life starts to settle in. Real world decisions have to be made about what they both want out of their future and Grant wants everything with Declan he just isn't sure if Declan wants the same. Teddy Hamilton and Jacob Morgan were just perfection!! I fell for both of them with WESMIE, but they have won my heart all over again with Declan and Grant. One of my favorite things about Jacob Morgan is we really get to hear his emotion in the intense scenes. Hearing a narrator choking up over a scene raw or because they are a fantastic actor just adds so much more depth to the story. Then Teddy, his voice is just everything good in this world! It is rare in a novel and even a series where we as readers get a long look at the future of our favorite characters. Lauren Blakely gave us a whole epilogue in this book, but it wasn't without its problems and for me that was so beautiful. Declan and Grant had already made it past the big fights and the staying angry part of their relationship this is where we get to see them communicate and work out their problems. Honestly, for that alone this book is unlike anything I have ever read. These two guys reside in my heart now, especially after the tears I shed for them. The audio version I pre-ordered had a brief interview between Teddy & Jacob which gives you their outlook on Declan and Jacob's story, but you also get to hear them as they are which was fun.

Just as she predicted, Lauren Blakely delivered an epic love story I adored from start to finish! I savored the prequel novella and first two books, and they would have been wonderful had Lauren decided to end it there. But then she added ALL IN WITH HIM, which picks up after Declan and Grant get reunite. They’ve moved in together and have realized that falling in the easy part. Now they have to figure out how to keep it, especially when Declan tends to be quiet and private while Grant is loud and outgoing. But the one thing they know for sure, is that they’ll do anything to make the other happy because they were so deeply in love. Even though they struggle, suffer and need to face their fears the angst is low while the feels are spot on. They learn to listen to each other and voice their concerns, they discover that they can trust each other further. It was also sizzling HOT, I mean burn your eReader up sexy, and swoony with all its epilogues. And let’s not forget about those great secondary characters, some from previous books, some I hope will get their own book in the future.

The plot turns interesting towards 40-50% of the book with all the drama with the pitching signals scandal, then with all the kids drama and the marriage too. But I guess this book was unnecessary really, nothing too important happens, apart from that they decide to get married and have kids, the typical thing. And in the Epiloge Grant wins THREE!! more WORLD SERIES while Declan only wins one in the end (do you see the injustice here 🥸). If you want to read this book have a go at it, I will for sure not reread this book again but still I wish you all a happy reading!! 💗💗❤❤🌈

    If you are a fan of epilogues and cringe when a book ends abruptly, then you will love All In With Him by Lauren Blakely, because it’s over 300 pages of all the good stuff! Grant and Declan continue their love story in the third and final book of the Men of Summer series, but this time, they are living together, both playing baseball professionally on opposing teams in the same city, and navigating all the joys and tribulations of making their committed relationship work. And I would guess about If you are a fan of epilogues and cringe when a book ends abruptly, then you will love All In With Him by Lauren Blakely, because it’s over 300 pages of all the good stuff!

And I would guess about 25% of this book is filled with detailed sexy times so there is no shortage of STEAM! I just loved how Blakely wrote their characters so beautifully and relatable. Not necessarily the part of them being professional athletes, but how they struggled with being the child of an addict, being abandoned, and coming out to the world in a profession that is revered around the world. Feeling an all-consuming desire to be with one person, and doing whatever it takes to be someone’s everything, including having deep personal discussions, and making your partner’s needs a priority. Learning to compromise and make sacrifices and cherishing the time spent together, knowing that family is the most important gift of all. Loved their giving back to their community and being role models. I loved their growth and steadfast commitment with each other, and how Blakely moved us through their relationship over a 20-year period through all three books. I loved their spirit and competitive nature and all the baseball talk which didn’t overtake their story. All In With Him is one giant swoonfest, heart-melter, and panty-melter and I couldn’t get enough.

You're my happily ever after." In this book, we pick up from Winning with Him where Declan has moved in with Grant, and it's that treading of new relationship/ending of the honeymoon period where your own doubt comes trickling in, the 'am I enough' thoughts, and whether the person you love more than anything wants the same things in life as you. They are polar opposites in the sense Grant is a social butterfly, he loves the dance, the atmosphere of being in crowds, whereas Declan is more quiet, more private, so when they try to merge the two, you can see the struggles. But instead of fighting, instead of allowing the doubts to fester, they talk. It's not a typical book that's kinda the 'will they/won't they' sometimes books are, it really is a beautiful ending to their beautiful love story so far. Because really. That ending? I'm not going to say anymore... but I will say my heart swelled with so much love and pride for the two of them. And also, Lauren... if you're reading this... If there was a fourth, or a fifth.. or even a tenth book for Grant and Declan, I would one-click that so fast I could probably create a new speed. 'He's mine, and I'm his, and that's just the way our love story was always going to be.' *Arc kindly provided by author in exchange for an honest review*

We get to see the ups and downs of a relationship we get to root for them we get to celebrate their wins and we feel for their loses.

We get the real and raw parts of what a relationship looks like when you’re two very different people trying to make it work. I liked that we get to see them work through things. It isn’t always easy but as we see taking it out and wanting to make it work is half the battle. I am sad that the book is over and but so happy we got Declan and Grant for as long as we got them. I think these two might just be my favorite couple Lauren has ever given us. The narration, WOW, I said it before and I will say it again Teddy is fantastic and I always want what he narrates. Jacob and Teddy together is perfection in my ears, they just work so well together. I loved it.

This third instalment picks up from book two, and gives us more on what their life is like after their reconciliation. And I cherished getting more about them so much. The pain they went through, to get to this point, was worth it for the stronger bond they now have and the things they learnt along the way. Like, life is full of dilemmas and hard choices, but having the right man standing beside you and encouraging you with every step, and lifting you when you need it – that’s what we all want in a relationship, right? I know I do! Yet, sometimes we all have doubts, not on our other half, but on ourselves, and if we are good enough to be with such an amazing man. But every relationship takes work and time and patience, to listen to each other and learn from previous mistakes and to let down boundaries so you can love fully and have trust and faith in each other. That’s what these two guys do and have, and its sensational. This is one love story that I know will give me the biggest book hangover for some time.

Grant is happy to be back with Deck and is eager to show him off and be seen with him. He wants to go out and do fun things. And he wants Deck to be there for it all.

I have such a soft spot for Grant and Declan. I loved Scoring With Him and Winning With Him so much, so I was thrilled when the author wanted to give us more of the good stuff. Grant is happy to be back with Deck and is eager to show him off and be seen with him. He wants to go out and do fun things. And he wants Deck to be there for it all. Declan is still a bit more shy about being in the public eye, especially where he feels more exposed. He has been working through issues from his past, but sometimes they sneak back and bother him. He is happy being a homebody and keeping things more private. He has restarted his life again in San Francisco to be with Grant. But they are both still coming to terms with their pasts while living in the now and trying to see what their future might look like. And they both still have some intermittent, but realistic anxiety and worries. And sometimes life throws you curveballs. And they are now in the public eye so are always aware of media speculation. It is not full of unnecessary angst, but is nicely layered with real-life situations and a few concerns weaved in, but they are finding ways to work through them together. This brings the fun, flirt, friends, banter, and beginning to build their lives together. But they do still have differences, vulnerabilities, and fears. They are still learning to communicate more effectively and to not get in their heads so much. Any new couple has some challenges, but this is them working them out, developing more intimacy, and getting more comfortable in themselves and with each other. This is real life and long-term love that sometimes requires adjustments along the way. Their chemistry and passion just seem to grow and become more intense, intimate, and emotional. And sometimes one needs support and the other has to try to be there for them. I loved getting to see more of this stage of their lives and seeing them work on their happily-ever-after. This one had everything in it that I needed for these two guys I have come to love. They have come so far through this series. They are seriously my fave LB couple now and I have loved spending time with them. This brings all the smiles, feels, steam, and swoon. I enjoy seeing these guys with their posse of friends. Being back in San Francisco gives them more opportunities to hang out. This just perfectly tops off this amazing series and just made my heart so happy. I would like to see more of River and his friend, Owen. I really like them too. Follow Me: Blog: Reviews by Tammy & Kim (Rachel and Jay) | Facebook | Twitter | Pinterest | Instagram

    While Grant and Declan are being very much and love, they realise that just being happy and having amazing sex is not all what it takes to make a relationship. For both of them, having baseball careers in the major league, their busy schedules make it difficult for them to be at home at the same time. So, when they are making it matter is a top priority. But “Sometimes, I just want to be alone with you. I don’t always want our relationship to be a cause. I just want it to be just . . . ours.” Book While Grant and Declan are being very much and love, they realise that just being happy and having amazing sex is not all what it takes to make a relationship. For both of them, having baseball careers in the major league, their busy schedules make it difficult for them to be at home at the same time. So, when they are making it matter is a top priority. But “Sometimes, I just want to be alone with you. I don’t always want our relationship to be a cause. I just want it to be just . . . ours.” Book three in the Men of Summer Series is one of romance, it is emotional and sizzling sexy. After Grand and Declan got their HFN in Winning With Him, I did not expect how amazing this would be. It was a fantastic evolution of their love story. I loved reading how their lives together evolve, they were just so much fun, playful even somewhat competitive. And the sex, oh my, the sex of these deeply in love men was off the charts hot!! Part of the Men of Summer Series and must be read in order

    Almost Too Much Heat This conclusion to the baseball romance of Grant and Declan is both lovingly handled and overdone. You have to have read the previous books in the series to understand that author Lauren Blakely is not an expert on MM relationships--most of her books are MF is appears. And because of that she has overdone the sex at almost every turn in an almost cliche way for those who are not gay. Otherwise it's a viable conclusion to a series in which the names of the Major League Baseball Almost Too Much Heat This conclusion to the baseball romance of Grant and Declan is both lovingly handled and overdone.

Otherwise it's a viable conclusion to a series in which the names of the Major League Baseball teams are changed, the circumstances of how all-star catcher Grant from one league and all-star shortstop Declan from the other league, both of whom play for teams in the Bay Area, maintain their relationship. It even offers a projection deep into the their future which is nice and sweet. Please don't get me wrong here: Blakely does a very good job with the intimate parts but there is just a bit too much torridly intimate innuendo along the way that seems like filler at times.

    LOVE! What a great ending to Grant and Declan's story. In this last installment of the Men of Summer series, Grant and Declan are faced with some new challenges in their relationship. This was a lot shorter than our first two books, but these guys have come such a long way. Without giving any spoilers, I thought things wrapped up nicely and I really enjoyed how they dealt with improving their relationship. I'm very sad their story is over, but I had the best time. I highly recommend this series i LOVE! What a great ending to Grant and Declan's story.

    I tried, but I just wasn't a fan of this series. This book felt like Exhibit A for why authors don't write what comes after the HEA. I was alternately bored stiff, and heavily sighing because the drama (what little there was of it between the two characters going at each other like rabbits) felt manufactured to try to give the book purpose rather than something that might actually happen to two people living in this situation. And THREE epilogues? I can't even dignify that with a pithy comment. I tried, but I just wasn't a fan of this series.

    5 STARS! As a romance reader, there’s a few things I expect when reading a romance novel. First, I expect a love story. Insta-love, hard-fought, sweet and swoony or a good old second-chance romance, it doesn’t matter to me as long as I get swept up in the couple’s love. Second, I expect heat—I need to not only feel their chemistry but I want to see it play out. For me personally, that means I don’t read closed-door, fade-to-black or “clean” romances. Finally, I expect a happily ever after, or at 5 STARS! As a romance reader, there’s a few things I expect when reading a romance novel. First, I expect a love story. Insta-love, hard-fought, sweet and swoony or a good old second-chance romance, it doesn’t matter to me as long as I get swept up in the couple’s love. Second, I expect heat—I need to not only feel their chemistry but I want to see it play out. For me personally, that means I don’t read closed-door, fade-to-black or “clean” romances. Finally, I expect a happily ever after, or at the bare minimum, a happy for now. After spending a few hours connecting with the characters and becoming invested in their stories, I absolutely need—no require—this closure, this ending on a high note, in order for me to move on from their story to the next one I pick up. It’s a non-negotiable, a hard limit, my personal, literary line in the sand. A happy for now can absolutely be a satisfying end to a story, especially in one like Declan and Grant’s which spanned five years. Just knowing that they made it back to each could have been enough. But sometimes it doesn’t shake out that way. Sometimes a happy for now winds up feeling more like it’s just the beginning of a couple’s story regardless of the long and bumpy road they traveled to get to that point. This unfinished, just-getting-started feeling is what compelled Blakely to add All In With Him, the surprise third book to her Men of Summer Series. While Declan and Grant’s story was technically complete at the end of Winning With Him, it was, in a way, just their starting point. While I was definitely happy that they were riding off into the sunset together, but like Blakely, I too felt as if there was more—something even more significant—to their romance, so I was beyond thrilled that she decided to continue their story. Declan and Grant had a lot to overcome just to be together in the first place, but their real challenges began after they got together. It’s one thing for a couple to come together, but it’s another thing for them to actually stay together. That’s the hard part, that’s the test—that’s the story. So still flushed with all that heat blazing between them, Blakely gave her readers a real, raw and unvarnished deep dive into those early days, weeks and months of this couple’s relationship as they opened up to each other about their wants and dreams, faced their differences and hashed them out. Every couple goes through this, it’s part of the process of committing oneself to another and merging your lives, and this peek into Declan and Grant’s process secured them as one of my top favorite Blakely couples. Romantic, sexy and emotional, All In With Him was a wonderful expansion of Declan and Grant’s love story. This couple was playful and fun, a little bit competitive, blisteringly sexy and deeply in love. I was invested in their story the moment I met them. A full-spectrum, consuming love story, the Men of Summer series was my most anticipated read of the summer. It surpassed every expectation that I had, and it is not only a new top favorite romance from Blakely, it’s also a top favorite for the year. Five smooches from me for All In With Him by Lauren Blakely! ~Danielle Palumbo

    Overall Series Rating: 3.7 The prequel and book 1 of the series definitely hook you in to this second chance romance story and were enjoyable reads. However, book 2 of this series was my least favorite. The seperation between Declan and Grant went on for too many years, which I found unnecessary.

This third book was also unnecessary like other reviews for this book have said. It felt like a very long epilogue. The story could have been really wrapped up as a duet in two books. The author really dragged the story with 3 books. This final book didn't really have a plot. It was just Declan and Grant finally living together and having a relationship that should have happened somewhere in book 2. There was some baseball drama that I didn't really care for. Having said that, I did enjoy the cheesy romance between Declan and Grant. They are loveable characters, especially Declan even though at times it felt like the author favored Grant. Declan is definitely a beloved character. The couple definitely deserved that ending after being separated for so many years 😬 This series also introduces us to Owen and River who are the main characters in the Bromance Zone story which is a standalone. We also get introduced to Asher who is a MC in the upcoming book Lauren is co writing with Sarina Bowen. Will definitely keep an eye out for that story. All in all, it was an alright read as a series.

I was thrilled when it was revealed we were going to get a third book for them! We pick up with the two baseball players right where we left off in book two. They are now back together and are working to build a life together. They are definitely stronger together for all that they went through while they were apart. We are treated to a glimpse of the things they are dealing with both personally and professionally and how their upbringing and past relationships, especially for Declan, play into the future that they want and are going to have. All relationships are work and it was so wonderful to see how much these two love each other and how they want to do right by the other. They have their struggles, but they are bound and determined to live the best life they can together. They listen, they discuss and they love hard. I'm so glad we got this third installment for such a terrific couple. Another fantastic job by Lauren Blakely! **I voluntarily read an early copy of this title in exchange for an honest review**

    Soooo Ima be honest here. I'm not in the mood at all for angsty stories right now but I really wanted to read this whole series. After reading almost every comment on all the books I decided I'm going to skim the first 2 books and just read this one in its entirety. So that's what happened and I'm really glad of it too! (view spoiler)[ The 5 year separation was ridiculous as all hell and I hated that. It was stupid and I wish that the mcs "grew" with each other instead of on their own.

It was a little mushy, a little serious and had all the feels! I'm doubly happy with the multiple epilogues :)

    Oh my heart, this book! My heart was soaring the whole time while listening to this delicious EPIC conclusion in The Men of Summer Series, All In With Him (Book 3). It picks up where Winning With Him left off…leaving me wanting to know more about this blissfully in love couple Grant and Declan, and where their story was headed. Not only did Lauren bless us with this amazing story, she also included a SUPER HOT MM novella, Thirst Trap narrated by Joe Arden and Shane East after the epilogues. Scor Oh my heart, this book!

Not only did Lauren bless us with this amazing story, she also included a SUPER HOT MM novella, Thirst Trap narrated by Joe Arden and Shane East after the epilogues. Score!! Double the pleasure… I really enjoyed where All In With Him took us. You can have your HEA, but it’s natural to think how long that will last. That’s where we are taken. Grant wants to make sure that Dec will be fulfilled in their life together long term, for life. He begins to doubt if they are compatible for the long haul. Declan starts to worry that he might not be enough for his outgoing, social, and outgoing “Rookie”. He’s more of a private and reserved guy. I love the real, raw dialogue between them. It’s believable in any new couple. LB did such a superb job detailing several situations that took each of them out of their own comfort zone to please the other, but sometimes not communicating that to the other. Kept me on my toes that’s for sure. I should also mention that this has a very high percentage of steamy, dirty talking sex scenes that were just ON FIRE 🔥 Again, Teddy Hamilton and Jacob Morgan brought Grant and Declan to life. Teddy was so wonderful again playing Grant. He’s both so good at portraying both Grant’s worries, insecurities, but WOW… he was so good with the dominant,kinky side that started to come out. Jacob again blown me away with bringing Dec’s insecurities to life in such a believable way. I felt that he was the more dominate on in the previous 2 books, but it was role reversal in this. Now, Jacob just like Teddy did an amazing job coming in with the gravely sexy dirty talk that I just love! Whew, these two are my favorite MM narration pair! I absolutely adored every second of this book, and my heart is so full of love for them and their journey to pure happiness! Ok, so let me tell you…Thirst Trap is a MM novella (that will knock your socks of) is after the epilogues. Joe Arden and Shane East aka “Eadon” bring this quick,fast,sexy,witty,funny novella to life. They have such an amazing chemistry together, and I so enjoy them together in this! Can I start a petition to make this a full length book please?! I am OBSESSED with this short, dirty, get down to business story of love at first sight. It certainly got my heart racing and my blood pumping just like all 3 books in The Men of Summer Series did! my goodness! 🔥💋🔥

The Men of Summer series is one of the best I've read this year. Lauren delivered an epic love story that took us on an emotional journey that proved that love does conquer all. Grant and Declan's story wasn't an easy one, but that's what made is so real. All in With Him is about Declan and Grant's relationship after they finally got back together. In this book we see them navigate their professional careers as pro ball players while trying to make their relationship work. I feel that this time around Grant was so much more confident than Declan, but they were both a bit apprehensive about their relationship working out. They didn't necessarily doubt it, but there were still some obstacles they needed to push through. Declan had more reservations and I completely understood where he was coming from. I related to Declan so much. I am very private especially about my relationship. It doesn't mean I am hiding it, I'm just private. Sometimes it hard to be with someone who is an extrovert because you feel as if you always have to match up their energy. I'm not saying this was the case for these two, but that's the vibe I got from Declan. I think he was afraid of letting Grant down, but at the same time I love how honest he was about the future. The communication between Grant and Declan was so important. The two of them were a perfect combination of chemistry, passion, professionalisms, and competitive. They were fierce in both their personal and professional lives. I can gush so much about these two, but I feel like I will just spoil so much. Listen, if you are a fan of M/M Romances this series is a MUST READ. If you are not a fan or have never read any M/M - START WITH THE MEN OF SUMMER SERIES. It is absolutely amazing. While I know this is the last book in Grant and Declan's story, I'm not overly sad because Lauren gave us not ONE, not ANOTHER, but a FINAL EPILOGUE and let me tell you it left my heart so filled with love. This entire series have left me in awe. It is truly perfection.
