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?

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.

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...

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.

liked the story, but......

A little too vulgar for my taste when I'm trying to listen to a good "Christmas" story -- not something I can play when I'm trying to listen with my family within listening distance. 😕

Lovely narrator & story -- a great combination!

This was a fun book. I've only read book 1 in the series a while back & have only picked it back up again after I subscribed to the romance package. This series alone makes the whole package worth it.
