All He Ever Dreamed - Shannon Stacey Title: All He Ever Dreamed

Series: Kowalski Family bk 6

Author: Shannon Stacey

Genre: Contemporary

Josh Kowalski is tired of holding down the fort—better known as the Northern Star Lodge—while his siblings are off living their dreams. Now that his oldest brother has returned to Whitford, Maine for good, Josh is free to chase some dreams of his own.

As the daughter of the lodge's longtime housekeeper, Katie Davis grew up alongside the Kowalski kids. Though she's always been "one of the guys", her feelings for Josh are anything but sisterly. And after a hot late-night encounter in the kitchen, it's clear Josh finally sees her as the woman she is.

Katie's been waiting years for Josh to notice her, but now that he has, she's afraid it's too late. Giving her heart to a man who can't wait to leave town is one sure way to have it broken. But Josh keeps coming up with excuses not to leave—could it be that everything he's ever wanted is closer than he could have imagined?

There is so much I can/could say about this book. How I've been waiting for it ever since All He Ever Needed, how Josh is simply delicious, how much I love Josh. Josh. Josh. Josh. In fact immediately after I finished reading it I tweet Shannon that she was a Goddess for this book.

Ok so I'm just going to say it. In my opinion Josh is Shannon's best hero to date, and I've read almost all of her books. If you have read All He Ever Needed and All He Ever Desired then you know the premise for this book as the set up begins there. Josh resents being stuck in charge of the families snowmobile lodge and wants a chance to leave and do other things.

Josh also has the problem of he's finally noticed his best friend is a woman, and an attractive woman at that. Now he's suddenly thinking lustful naughty thoughts about her. While the rest of town breathes a sigh of relief that he's finally doing something about it.

There is so much I want and need to say about this book and yet the only thing I can think to say is READ THIS BOOK. I'm serious. I've been trying to write this review for a week now that is all I can come up with without giving away a ton of information about the book.

Overall I think this may be my favorite book in the series, and we still have one more Kowalski sibling to go.

Grade A+
