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…
Shannon Stacey’s book, All He Ever Needed is definitely a book worth holding onto and revisiting again. The Kowalskis are an interesting lot. I for one, can not wait to get to know them all.
Mitch’s sweet charisma pours of the pages. Thank you, Mrs. Stacey for giving us a male character like Mitch. His tough guy attitude is hawt as well as his softer side. He does have his own share of problems. when he returns home to find Josh in a bad mood, Rosie warning him off Paige, as well as his past as a misspent youth coming back to haunt him.
Paige is a true darling of a heroine. Strong, intelligent, and huge heart all tie in well with her love for the town and townspeople who adopted her into their lives. With her own family a bit on the unstable side, she needs the town and it’s people. Even if one of the towns resident came with a sleek sexy Harley Davidson.
Shannon Stacey created a wonderful, sexy, sweet story that had my heart racing from the moment I cracked it open. I could not truly put the book down. Mitch and Paige heat up the pages from their first meeting. Based on their “Agreement”, can these two truly keep it simple, or will those hot smoldering nights prove to be to much for them to keep their hearts safe?
The supporting characters added to the fun, and intensity of the plot line. All He Ever Needed has a small town feel where everyone knows everyone, as well as their secrets. I for one can not wait to dive into the next edition.
