Review: All He Ever Desired by Shannon Stacey

All He Ever Desired
The Kowalskis
by Shannon Stacey

A second shot at first love

After college, Ryan Kowalski decided to leave Whitford, Maine, rather than watch Lauren Carpenter marry another man. Now his siblings need his help to refurbish the family-owned Northern Star Lodge and he’s forced to face the past sooner rather than later when he collars a vandal—and learns the boy is Lauren’s son…

The last person Lauren needs back in her life is Ryan Kowalski. With a bitter ex-husband and a moody teenage son, she has enough man trouble already. But her son needs to learn a few lessons about right and wrong, even if Lauren has to escort him to Ryan’s door every day to work off his crime.

With all this close contact, Ryan and Lauren can’t deny the chemistry between them is as powerful as ever. But can a few searing kisses erase their past and pave the way for a second chance at true love?

New York Times and USA TODAY bestselling author Shannon Stacey lives with her husband and two sons in New England, where her two favorite activities are writing stories of happily ever after and riding her four-wheeler. From May to November, the Stacey family spends their weekends on their ATVs, making loads of muddy laundry to keep Shannon busy when she’s not at her computer. She prefers writing to laundry, however, and considers herself lucky she got to be an author when she grew up.

You can contact Shannon through her website, where she maintains an almost daily blog, or visit her on Twitterher Facebook page, or email her at


As you might have noticed I'm a little behind on Shannon Stacey's books. It's not because she isn't a great author, it's because I read way to many great authors. All He Ever Desired is part of the Kowalskis series. It's one of my favorite families. You won't be able to help yourself, once you start the series you'll be lost. I really enjoyed Ryan and Lauren's story. Both of them had baggage from their past. But I liked how Lauren dealt with it. Ryan being a man tried to ignore it all but we all know how that goes. But of course by the end we have a happily-ever-after! My goal is to try and get caught up on this series do I can start her next two, Boys of Fall & Boston Fire. Both look so good! If you'd read All He Ever Desired I'd love to know what you thought! Happy reading! 


  1. I really loved the first 3 books in the series. Looking forward to trying the May book. I'll hopefully get there in the next week :D
