All He Ever Needed: The Kowalski Family, Book 4

Mitch Kowalski lives out of a suitcase - and he likes it that way. Traveling for work has the added bonus of scaring off women who might try to tie him down.

Determined to stand on her own two feet, she lives by the motto "Men are a luxury, not a necessity". But when Mr. Tall, Dark and Hot pulls up a stool in her diner and offers her six weeks of naughty fun with a built-in expiration date, she's tempted to indulge....

Publisher's Summary

He won't stay put for a woman, and she won't chase after any man...

Mitch Kowalski lives out of a suitcase - and he likes it that way. Traveling for work has the added bonus of scaring off women who would otherwise try to tie him down. But when he's called home to help with the family lodge, he's intrigued by the new girl in town and her insistence that she doesn't need a man. If there's one thing Mitch can't resist, it's a challenge.

After a nomadic childhood, Paige Sullivan is finally putting down roots. Determined to stand on her own two feet, she lives by the motto "Men are a luxury, not a necessity". But when Mr. Tall, Dark and Hot pulls up a stool in her diner and offers her six weeks of naughty fun with a built-in expiration date, she's tempted to indulge.

They're the perfect match for a no-strings fling. Until they realize their sexy affair has become anything but casual....

    "A yawner for Paige and Mitch"

    I've cherry picked my way through Shannon Stacey's Kowalski family. I really liked Keri and Joe, bypassed Kevin and Beth, LOVED Sean and Emma, and then made the mistake of reading Mitch and Paige. Bo-ring. I really liked Mitch's character, he was a strong and funny male lead. Paige was wishy-washy, boring, slightly cold, and mostly indifferent. Her backstory did not make me believe she was "oh-so-damaged" enough to have a sticky note on her fridge that read "you don't need a man" or some kind of rubbish like that.

    It took me a long time to finally finish their story, and at the end- it was just ho-hum. Definitely not a re-read, or credit worthy. Sigh, should have read other reviewers- and will continue to cherry pick my way through the Kowalski family series!

    "For a Predictable Series This Books Ending...."
    Would you listen to All He Ever Needed again? Why?

    For a predictable series, I didn't 'see' [guess] the ending of this book until about 2/3rds of the way through.

    Yes, see next answer.


    Would you be willing to try another book from Shannon Stacey? Why or why not?

    Yes, it is a sweet, feel good, 'vanilla' romance series. She also left a couple characters stories open to continue this series.


    What three words best describe Renee Werbowski’s voice?

    Steady, smooth, professional


    Any additional comments?

    This is MUCH MORE TAME than I usually like, but I got them on sale and it was nice filler while I wait for my favorite authors...Shayla Black, Maya Banks, etc.

    This was a cute, sweet romance. A good vacation book. I've listened to all the series and will continue to do so.

    "Reviewing Before I've Finished"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    Meh. Probably not. I got hooked onto the Kowalski family series largely bc of the original narrator's delivery, so it was jarring to have someone else's voice telling a continuation of the Kowalski story. I also got the Kindle version (thinking I should just read it so I could get thru the stories in order) but I think I've just gotten used to having these stories read to me by the original narrator. It was like I was missing the jokes and the witty nuances of the dialogue on my own.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    Skipping to the next in this series that has the original narrator (Lauren Fortgang)


    Would you listen to another book narrated by Renee Werbowski?

    Probably a non-fiction. Performance of a fictional story with a variety of characters doesn't seem to be her thing (just based on this).... However, her reading was straightforward & basically good.


    Was All He Ever Needed worth the listening time?

    No. Even though I know better, I should never ignore other people's reviews on Audible!

    "Excellent Listen!"

    Enjoyable but better listened to in series order. I've enoyed other books in the Kowalski series hence downloaded and listened to this one when it popped up in new releases. Unfortunately I spent a lot of time at the beginning trying to understand the connection to the earlier books until I realized I had skipped book 3.

    "Great series. Best narrator."

    My husband and I are enjoying this series. I like Renee Werbowski as the narrator. She has brought great voice to the characters.

    "Love Books In A Series"

    I enjoyed it and wish she had given us a little more in the epilogue on how they are doing. Maybe it will in the next book about the Kowalski Brothers, which I am ready for. I checked Shannon Stacey's website. Ryan and Josh's story will not be about until next year--like I said I am ready to listen.

    I don't think the narrator was as bad as the previous reviewer, but everyone has their own opinion. She is not LKing, but she was fine. I will listen to her again. I have held off reading Kevin's book because of the ratings, but think I am going to go on and purchase it.

    Story
    "Sometimes taking a chance on love is worth it."

    This is book #4 is the Kowalski Family series. OK so I started with book #4, but I don’t think starting at this point detracted from the story. I took a chance on this one because it was a great price and I wanted to start a new series. It was totally worth it. I really enjoyed listening to the story of Mitch Kowalski and Paige Sullivan. These two are lost and don’t even realize it until they embark on a no string attached dating adventure. This is what I love about Romance Novels. It’s so exciting to watch these two realize they need each other. All they needed to do is take a chance on each other. The romantic scenes are tastefully done with the right amount of spice thrown in to create some very steamy scenes. Not to mention, the narration was on point. Now I am going to get the rest of this series and will listen to the rest in order. I just love it when I get a great book!!!!
