All He Ever Desired by Shannon Stacey

3 stars

Kowalskis #5

This is my 3 Kowalskis series that I have read. I enjoyed the first two a lot more. All he Ever Desire is a good story. The extended family does show up at a wedding in the book. But family interaction is not a big as deal in this branch of the family.
Thier seemed to be more foul language in this book too. Thier are a few love scenes too.
Ryan Kowalskis comes to his hometown to help get the family lodge in better shape. He brings with him two of his workers to stay at the lodge during the week. He has left his business in his forman hands while he stays the two hours away at the lodge to work.

Ryan left home for collage after he graduated he tried to get Lauren to leave her husband and go with him. Now he is embrassed to see her again.
Lauren works in a office in her hometown raising her 16 year old son Nick. Her ex-husband used to be good friends with Ryan. Lauren never told her ex about Ryan's offer. She has thought of Ryan a lot over the years. He looks better than ever to her.
Ryan catches a vandal and calls the cops. He learns he is Lauren's and offers him a chance to work off the damage instead of having him arrested.

Ryan starts dating Lauren and just wants to see where it is going without making plans or even realizes that he lives ways away from her and her son.

Thier is some humor in the story. Mostly character driven. I like the characters and would like to read more of the Kowalskis family and see what happens in thier lives.
I was given this ebook to read in exchange for honest reviews from Netgalley.

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.
