Cute story - may contain spoilers

This was a low angst story about a couple on the verge of divorce. The still loved each other but he was a TV personality and was never home. I really didn't get the whole divorce thing though. They had a cute little girl, they loved each other and it just seem concocted. They meet up after 11months separation and she has her own small restaurant and he is going to help another restaurant get fixed up. Colorful characters abound. I really liked the small town

Lost Coast Harbor Holiday Novella #5.5

The two lost sight of their dreams and grew apart though they both still loved one another and had chemistry to spare.

This was given to me to read and review by the lovely Ms Eve Kincaid and I am so excited to tell the readers that I read this and enjoyed this story very much.  I have read the previous Lost Coast Harbor novels and the reader doesnt need to have read them in order to understand whats going on in this one.  The author gives enough background information that the reader will be able to follow along just fine.

I loved being back in Lost Coast Harbor.  I got

I missed Lost Coast Harbor, and I LOVED this book. A second chance holiday romance with a pinch of suspense.

I have been reading so many books lately where the H and h were supposed to have chemistry, but I just was not feeling it.

Parker and Ivy had chemistry. Their relationship wasn't combative, even when they were competing. They loved their daughter, Gigi. They were ex's who supported each other. Then, there was the sexual tension that increased as you got further into the book.

There were so

Will she give him a second chance?

As I write this review, I'm a bit torn. I liked so much about this second-chance novella, but my dislikes were a turn off.

So as to my likes:
Eve Kincade is a good writer, and All He Wants is a character driven story of deep love, understanding and second chances. I really liked all the main characters (Ivy, Parker and GiGi), as well the secondary characters. The story was easy to step into and I could feel the emotional warring of both Ivy and Parker.

So as to

I love the Lost Coast Harbor series and have been waiting for another story in the series. All He Wants was worth the wait and I was sucked in at page one! Ivy and Parker's second chance story was hot and romantic with drama and a little suspense thrown in. Parker returns to Lost Coast Harbor determined to win Ivy back, but Ivy is reluctant to give him a chance and possibly be hurt again. I love their road to understanding what went wrong the first time around and their path to forgiveness. I ...more

What a beautiful story and brilliantly written, I was hooked from the start.
Ivy couldn't stand living with Parker due to his work commitments as a tv chef she was so unhappy and he had failed to notice.
She was bringing up their daughter solo as she barely saw her husband and she hated living in the big city with no friends.
Ivy and Parker had both been chef's but she had giving it all up to look after their daughter.
She wanted a quieter life and set up home near her in laws.

There isn't much I enjoy more than a touching second chance at love and this is one of the best. A single mom is surprised when her almost ex husband shows up in town and finds every excuse to spend time with her. They have an adorable daughter who is so happy to see her wonderful dad. It is so heartwarming to see these two learn to deal with what caused them to separate in the first place and realize they are still in love. Throw in the suspense and a grumpy old man doing everything in his ...more

All you could want in a heartwarming read...

All He Wants takes us back to Lost Coast Harbor and a delicious new tale of romance and intrigue. I like that this couple is "almost" divorced, but neither has moved on, will true love prevail? I like that we get to check in with a character or two from previous series books. But most of all I loved getting lost in this small town "world" because the storytelling captures your heart and imagination for a truly satisfying read.

You can't help but like both Parker and Ivy as well as their family and friends. They have a history and have to overcome past hurt and fears to be able to move forward. This book has romance and a little Christmas magic. A very enjoyable read.
I received an advance reader copy of this book and am voluntarily leaving my honest review.

This is a fast fun read. Lots of drama and romance. The character are so real and their problems are ones that readers will connect with since they may have gone through them too. Highly recommend!
