Liam had set up shop there.
After an accident left him injured and unable to work, it wasn’t long before he ended up on the street with his dreams in the gutter.
This was it.
This was his life.
Until the day he met Max Porter—a man who appeared to have it all. They didn’t meet so much as made eye contact as Max sneered at Liam, the bum occupying precious space on the sullied New York City street.
When Max stepped into oncoming traffic, a lesser man might’ve let him. But Liam risked his life to save Max only to be left to die without a second thought.
When Liam woke up days later, he wasn’t himself…at least he wasn’t in his body.
He was in Max’s.
And with Liam’s body on life support, there was only one logical conclusion: Max was trapped in Liam’s comatose body.
Somehow the twisted hands of fate had given Liam a second chance; a chance to have it all. But with all the perks of Max’s life also came his problems. Finding balance in his new identity was challenged more so once Liam fell for Waverly, Max’s beautiful ex.
Could Liam live out his life as another man or would he pull the plug and let fate decide?
Would he lose his chance at true love?
Would he lose the chance to have it all?

To Have It All is my first B.N. Toler read, and it won't be the last. Words can't describe how much I loved this book. How utterly breathless it left me. This story was weaved into the most beautiful piece of work, and I loved being there watching how everything unfolded and came to be as it was supposed to be. Unforgettable, mind blowing, epic are just some of the words I would use to describe this. I was very intrigued about this story with the whole body swapping. I knew this was going to be an important story with a few life lessons we needed to learn.
There is magic in this world beyond any explanation. It exists only because a scale steadies the universe, and it is the unknown that keeps the balance
Waverly was such a strong character. She has been through so much with Max being the cause of most it. He really did a number on her. It was so hard for her to let those feelings go. Her anger, hurt and pain. Having those feelings made it hard for to open up to anyone. But she started opening up again to the new Max. And I loved seeing this side of her with him. The flirtation and banter was off the walls. She was so sassy, a fiery one. Loved it!! The truth though is hard for some people to understand. Waverly couldn't comprehend what was going on with the whole body swapping with Max and Liam. Didn't want to believe, because let's face it, that would be hard to believe. But she had that one moment when she realized everything Liam was saying was the truth. And she didn't waste what remaining time she had with him since they didn't know what was going to happen when that one decision, that one turning point happens.
Hate is love's nemesis, yet the two are so closely linked; almost hand in hand. You can only hate someone if you love them
Liam stole my heart and soul in this book. If there was such a thing as the perfect guy, he would be it. He always puts others before himself and loves with his whole heart. He always tried to see the good in everyone. I loved his relationship with Pearl. They have stuck with each other through thick and thin and would protect each other no matter what. The scenes with Liam and Pim had me literally swooning for this guy. Made me love him even more. That little girl became his little girl. They had that connection, and even though she wasn't his, they were so much a like. Both loved their bikes! I loved watching Liam's and Waverly's relationship slowly progress. Liam didn't want to get attached, because he didn't know how his story was going to end. But he couldn't help that it happened, and he didn't waste another moment.
Sometimes it is in the plainest of moments we find the most beauty
Max was a selfish human being and so mean and hateful. But there are so many secrets about Max. Why he is the way he is. At the end though, he does redeem himself and does what is right twice. He has a long road ahead and a lot of healing to go through. I was so happy to finally see a different side to Max at the end.
The human race needs miracles; it needs the unthinkable to happen because without it, hope would not exist
Karma plays a part in this amazing, epic story, but what form does karma come in. I was shocked so many times during this book. Halfway through, I thought I figured out how it was going to end. I didn't see this book ending another way. Then bam, got a little twist. Completely changing on how I saw the ending playing out. This story had so many twists and turns that left me completely shocked and in awe. I had so many of those awe, shocking moments. Then that ending!!! Geesh!!! Left me a bawling mess!!! I got teary eyed several times during this book, but the ending I was a mess.
I'm known by many names, but most know me as karma-the bitch. What goes around comes around. You reap what you sow. You will get what you deserve. The expressions are endless that describe what I deliver.
To Have It All was a beautifully written, heart-stopping, awe-inspiring story that will always stay with me. I still can't let it go. Miracle really do happen!! And it shows us not to take anything for granted. Not knowing what you had until you lost it. This book is a story that everyone needs to read. It is an emotional read so have the tissues ready!! A MUST read!!!
Scooting up, his body was gloved to mine, his mouth to my ear as he reached around me and pulled my left hand, placing it over the shifter, then he took my right hand and settled it over the throttle. “Think of this like a dance,” he instructed me, his voice husky. “Dance involves steps, coordination, knowing your partner. This isn’t much different.”
“Says you,” I griped. “This is hardly a dance partner. This is a death trap that could kill us.”
He chuckled, the sound low and deep, making my core clench. “You’re sitting on over five-hundred pounds of machinery here. Think about how much time and effort went into building this; the way someone had to know this bike so intricately to put it all together and make it move.”
“Just because they knew it doesn’t mean I do.” I appreciated the intricacy of the bike, but appreciating and driving it were very different things.
“I just mean there’s power here. You can make these 500 pounds of metal move if you want it to, if you trust yourself enough.”
He left my hands and softly ran his fingers up my arms to my shoulders. “It lives and moves so long as you let it, so long as you lead it, just like a good dance partner. Don’t think about the moves you need to make . . . feel them. Let the bike tell you when it’s time to shift.”
His fingers glided down my sides until they took a firm hold of my waist causing my breath to hitch as my back arched slightly. “It’s give and release, Waverly,” he went on, his voice deep and gravely. “You have to feel when it’s time to give and when it’s time to let go.”
Darting my tongue out, I wet my dry lips. How did he make shifting gears sound so hot? How in the heck was I supposed to manage this machine with Liam murmuring sexual innuendo in my ear? I wished I could somehow turn around and take him on the bike.
“You know, this would be an epic opening to a porn flick,” I announced causing him to burst into laughter.
“I hadn’t thought of that.” His body shook as he continued to laugh.
“I guess your mind isn’t as dirty as mine.” I shrugged.
“I guess not. What would the film title be?” he queried.
I twisted my mouth in thought. In my sexiest voice, I twisted my neck so he could see me as I pouted my mouth, “Shifting the Panhead. When good girls learn to ride.”
He choked he was laughing so hard. When he could form words again, he coughed out, “That does sound pretty dirty when you say it like that.”
“Anything can sound dirty when you say it the right way,” I quipped. “Sky,” I moaned. “Concrete,” I continued.
“Okay, okay,” he begged before clearing his throat. “Stop stalling your lesson with your dirty mind and your defiling of perfectly unperverted words.”
I wiggled my ass again. “You love how I defiled the word concrete. Admit it.”
“You keep shimmying your ass like that, this lesson is going to have to end while I go jump in the water.”
