All For One: 04/12/21
All For One by Melissa de la Cruz is the conclusion to the Alex & Eliza trilogy. It focuses on two things: Eliza's first pregnancy and Alex's relationship with Mrs. Reynolds.
For the Reynold's affair, Alex is written in an overly sympathetic manner. Essentially she puts all the blame on Mrs. Reynolds. Alex takes her on as a client, gets her a room where she can hide from her abusive husband, and she proceeds to seduce him.
I honestly don't know how complicit either person was. I also honestly don't care. I don't however believe that it was the near tragic hiccup in the Hamilton marriage.
As with the previous two books, I found the chapters written from Eliza's point of view the most engaging. Throughout the author seems to have had a clearer sense of what she might have been thinking and feeling. I honestly wish that the three volumes were cut down to one slightly long one focusing only on Eliza's half of the story.
