All He Ever Dreamed | [Shannon Stacey]

All He Ever Dreamed

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.

Publisher's Summary

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?

    Story
    "Love a romance between long time friends"

    All He Ever Dreamed is a sweet and steamy romance between the couple that has been best friends ever since they were children.

    Katie has been in love with Josh for years but he had no clue even though everyone else in town knew.

    I love it when the crusher gets the crushee and Shannon Stacey wrote a great story for Katie and Josh.

    Lauren Fortgang as always brought Stacey's characters to life like no other narrator could. I really enjoy the partnership of these to ladies and I can't wait for audios in the series.

    "The Kowalski Family Book 6 Series-Warm & Fuzzy"
    Where does All He Ever Dreamed rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    It is like a cozy blanket. A nice romance that tugs your heart in a few directions. It's nothing more or less than it is meant to be.

    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?


    What was one of the most memorable moments of All He Ever Dreamed?

    The push and pull as the family decides to do with the lodge. The ending is fantastic.


    Any additional comments?

    NOTE: Some mature scenes.

    Story
    "Meh..."

    I was expecting a short and sweet romance to get my mind off from work. This story felt incredibly long. I just didn't feel the romantic connection between the main characters. Josh's desire to go on a road trip to do nothing interesting felt selfish and immature and then the heroine is waiting with arms wide open for him to return when he pleases? A big disappointment! The narration was unremarkable too...

    Story
    "The Kowalski's....where did the humor go?"

    I loved the first Kowalski clan books I purchased. This one was a little flat compared to the past stories. Katie and Josh discovering is ok...but all the practical joking and the funny dialog was missing in this book. This seems to be a different branch of the family I don't remember these characters or the second tier of characters. However, it was a nice diversion.
