All He Ever Dreamed is the sixth book in Shannon Stacey’s Kowalski Family series and, start to finish, I couldn't put it down!

A little back story: I’ve absolutely loved every book in this series, but there’s been something about Josh that has been tugging at my heartstrings since I first set eyes on him. He’s the youngest of the Kowalski siblings and as each of the others left home to build their own lives, Josh’s life has seemed less and less in his control. Everyone’s assumed he’d run No

I loved this book. Katie has loved Josh forever, but in typical guy fashion, Josh has always thought of her as his bff, until one day he wakes up and realizes she's a full grown woman and his attraction to her tilts him sideways. Suddenly everything is different between them. Funny, romantic, emotional, and I got teary-eyed at the end. Another winner for Shannon Stacey in her always awesome Kowalski series!

Tentada estoy de darle las 5 estrellitas pero supongo que me las estoy reservando.

De toda la serie ha sido uno de mis favoritos. Había estado esperando el libro de Josh durante mucho tiempo y debo decir que fue más de lo que esperaba.

En el libro anterior Mich me decepcionó un poco, pero con este la autora me conquistó totalmente.

No sé si soy yo, que estoy muy receptiva últimamente o si es la historia. Porque bueno, decir que es de las que me gustan es poco.

¿Una historia donde la prota es tipo ch

Josh has been the Kowalski stuck at their family’s lodge for years, the one left to run the business while his siblings all went out and explored the world. Josh is bitter and he wants out. The Kowalski’s have all pitched in to get the lodge spruced up and back on its feet and now they’re ready to put the lodge on the market so Josh can have the freedom he’s always longed for. It’s mixed emotions though because the lodge and home have been

All He Ever Dreamed is the last book in the newest Kowalski trilogy, and as usual, the best brother goes last. It’s a strong addition to the series, perhaps not the best in this new trilogy, which I think ended up being the second book, but it maintains the quality Ms. Stacey has us used to. At this point I should be ready to say goodbye to the books, and making noises about never-

You ever had it bad for someone and they didn’t know it? They walk into a room and just looking at them makes your heart skip a beat? Well that’s what Katie has felt for Josh…forever. Another case of unrequited love, poor Katie! Fear not, Josh wakes up and gets his head out of…well, you know.

Katie and Josh have been best friends forever. She knows Josh wants nothing more than to get out of Whitford and away from his family’s lodge. Josh wants to get out in the world and follow his dr

Average. No story. Small town characters with small town conversations.

This had a lot of potential but it just wasn’t happening. Josh was stuck running the family business when his siblings moved away. He resents not having a choice. He dreams of a new and different life. I remembered my own thoughts when I was in my twenties, go to a big city, get a neat job, learn new things, meet new people, find out what I’m good at, what I want to do. Here, when Josh gets a chance to get away, he does nothi

I think I've run into a case of the "it's not you, it's me"s. I used to love Shannon's books. Yours to Keep was a five star rating from me, and you know that's hard to come by. The first two in the series weren't as great for me, and these last few haven't knocked me off my feet, either. As far as I can tell, her writing hasn't changed, so alas...it's not you, it's me.

While All He Ever Dreamed was a cute, fun, light read, it was predictable. Ridiculously so.

“There wasn’t an official rule book that he knew of, but he was pretty sure a guy didn’t bend his best damn friend over the kitchen table.” 1 likes
“She either looked like a glamorous movie star or a cheap hooker. It depended on how deeply she was panicking when she looked at her reflection. The black dress was soft and snug. It was V-necked and long-sleeved, so perfectly respectable. But Hailey had gotten her to wear one of her high-dollar bras and the boobs were not respectable at all. Even decently covered up, they demanded attention.” 0 likes
