For Hunter and Sara, getting married was easy. It’s staying together that’s the true test of love…

Hunter Cabot deeply loves two things: the international tea company he’s helped his father build, and his wife, Sara. From the moment he first saw her wide smile on their college campus years ago, Hunter fell hard. Yet now, with other family members pushing to sell the thriving business and Sara grieving their failure to start a family, he’s suddenly facing the crushing loss of both.

The relentless ambition that Sara once admired in Hunter is now driving them apart. Each missed doctor’s appointment, neglected dinner date, and family squabble accentuates their differing priorities. Still, Sara struggles to create the home life they’d envisioned, until unsettling developments—both personal and professional—push them to the breaking point.

When love is put to the ultimate test, can Hunter and Sara stop fighting each other long enough to fight for their marriage?

All We Knew by Jamie Beck was a heart-wrenching read about a married couple and their path to strengthen their marriage. This book will definitely give you the feels.


Hunter and Sara whom we meet in Book 1 (Before I Knew), are a real couple with real issues. It wasn’t clear in the first book about what their supposed tension was about, but it was pretty obvious they had their problems. The juxtaposition between these two characters is what really sets the tone of the story. Sara is desperate for a child and family, Hunter is career oriented. He might come off as cold (not sure if I really liked him to be honest) but his idea about family is to secure their future. Admirable but at odds with Sara’s ideals.

Their constant battle with each other was at times hard to read. The story is so emotionally packed that I had to take breathers from it. Not in a bad way though. It’s a family drama that will grab and keep your attention. It’s interesting to read about the family dynamics of the Cabots. It’s a reading roller coaster that I can’t wait to ride again with book 3.

I recommend reading book 1 first just to to understand the whole story and to better appreciate the drama.


How to you feel about family drama driven stories?

This sounds like my kind of book. This actually seems more like women’s fiction than straight-up contemporary romance and sometimes I love a more realistic slice of life story.

Depends on the story but I like a story with family drama in it. This sounds pretty good.
