Shannon Stacey is an author I’ve always wanted to read. In all honesty, I’ve read one of her Christmas stories a few years ago but never one of her full length novels. I’ve heard great things about the Kowalski brothers and wanted to give the books a try.So I’m going to make this review short and sweet. I didn’t have any problems keeping up with the book so the series doesn’t have to be read in order. Did I have some issues with the book? Yes. But not enough to not want to read the other books in the series. That is good since I bought the first two before I read this one and had another one gifted to me.Mitch Kowalski is the oldest of the Kowalski siblings. He owns and runs one of the countries most successful demolition companies. His job requires him to travel a lot and he loves it. He’s back in his hometown of Whitford, Maine for a couple weeks to help his youngest brother, Josh, out with the family resort, the Northern Star Lodge. Paige Sullivan has always wanted a place to call home. By accident, she found it. She refuses to be anything like her mother, so she has sworn off of men. Paige is happy running the town’s diner, Trailside Diner, and living in her little small trailer behind it.Mitch is a man who has a well deserved reputation with woman. He's upfront about not wanting a relationship. Once he is done, he's done, and there's no looking back. Paige, because of her mother and upbringing, has the attitude that men are not necessary.Mitch is only in town for six weeks. When he meets Paige, he pursues her pretty hard. Every time, she turns him down. Mitch, a man not accustomed to be being told no, isn't exactly sure how to deal with that. Eventually, however, Paige gives into a short, no strings attached relationship with Mitch. The only problem is they each start to realize they want more than they agreed to. All He Ever Needed is the story of what happens when two people actually find the one person they truly need.I LOVE watching guys fall and none fell harder or faster than Mitch “I’m not going to call or text you” Kowalski. The book even brought tears to my eyes.Rating: 4Release Date: September 10, 2012Book Length: 304 pagesSource: NetGalleyReviewed by: KimReading Format: Available in eBook and Paperback
