He showed great love and compassion for his ex, but turned around and treated the heroine like a convenience. The guy behind her is upset at her “verbal diarrhea”.

A note about Steamy: To everyone who loves romantic stories!
I laughed and cried more than once, sometimes both at the same time, and when I turned the last page a most wonderful thing happened. I’m giving this two stars because the writing is excellent, the secondary characters really delivered and there were some very fun LOL moments. I loved Hester and her daughters, but it freaked me out that Hester got with Louis the creepy mortician. Callie Grey just turned thirty, is living with her grandfather, and is in love with her boss-slash-ex…who is now seeing another woman in the office.

Published August 1st by Harlequin Books first published July 27th It should be the kind of story I adore, but Higgins couldn’t make it work for me.
I remember grinning like an idiot at one of their first few “moments” together. In this case, our hero Ian is a quiet, withdrawn, difficult to approach man. Higgins plays for laughs, but never really at the expense of her protagonist.
Callie Grey – short for Calliope Homer’s muse – is turning thirty. I liked seeing him go from the formal, stiff, shy vet to the smiling, lovable, somewhat open man in love. There were some bumpy parts in this book.

Leave A Comment Cancel reply Comment. She goes to the DMV and upon waiting in line, calls her sister to cry and vent, meeting a seeming impatient man. I think the first half of the book was spent with Callie angsting about her relationship, or lack thereof, with Mark. The two really need time to develop a believable relationship and to sort out some inevitable “opposites-attract” type conflicts. It was poignant and sad, and I thought Higgins was finally coming around because she made me cry.
There wasn’t anything of value between them outside of their fantastic sex life. While I didn’t find it quite as modernly witty and wonderful as those two a few scenes describing characters’ weight and a few other things rubbed me a bit wrongit was still a really enjoyable read.
All I Ever Wanted by Kristan Higgins – Book Thingo
Callie offers to do some public relations work to make over his image. But then Mark announces that he has a new girlfriend – a client’s daughter – and he is bringing her to work for the company. She’s not married–or even dating–and now her boss, Mark, whom she’s loved for years, is marrying Muriel, a perfect specimen from California.
I love watching their feelings evolve from hate to friendship and at last to love. These two together are just stellar. The thing she had going with Betty Boop and Michelle Obama as the romantic and logical sides of her conscience just seemed kind of silly.

If you’ve read one, you know the drill: Aug 29, Angelc rated it really liked it Shelves: Feb 22, Elle rated it liked it Shelves: I can see why it is important for the story but to make the important scenes which occurred after he died, I am sure, Higgin could have written something else hide spoiler ]. A note about Politics: I don’t think Kristan Higgins is the author for me. I hate when I have to skim. Callie is funny, sincere, and strikes utterly true.
