Review: All I Ever Wanted by Kristan Higgins

I totally adored this contemporary romance! Really!

Kristan Higgins' writing is very smooth and fluid. She does a wonderful job of building up a story and keeping your interest.

Now while I do enjoy a good "love" scene it was surprisingly refreshing to not read any explicit details. It really was a book that was all about the story.

It was also interesting to take in these characters. No "super alpha dudes" taking over...only a shy guy who's not sure if he wants to love again.

Definitely a sweet contemporary romance that leaves you with a happy *sigh.*
About The Book:
(From FSB Media)

One Happily-Ever-After Rocking Chair . . .

And no sign of any forthcoming babies to rock in ol' Georgebury, Vermont. For Callie Grey, turning thirty means coming to grips with the fact that her boss (and five-week fling) is way overdue in his marriage proposal. And way off track, because Mark has suddenly announced his engagement to the company's new Miss Perfect. If that isn't bad enough, her mom decides to throw her a three-oh birthday bash in the family funeral home.

Bad goes to worse when she stirs up a crazy relationship with the town's not so warm and fuzzy veterinarian, Ian McFarland, in order to flag Mark's attention. So Ian is more comfortable with animals. . . . So he's formal, orderly and just a bit tense. The ever-friendly, fun-loving and spontaneous Callie decides it's time for Ian to get a personality makeover. But, dang, if he doesn't shock the heck out of her, she might actually fall for Vermont's unlikeliest eligible bachelor. . . .

  1. I really liked this book. There were a few times I wanted to tell the heroine to put on her big-girl panties, but for the most part I loved it! Kristan Higgins is an auto-buy for me :)

  2. Hey Patti! I think I'll be checking her out more. It's the first time I've read her and I really enjoyed her style.
