Book review: All He Ever Dreamed (Kowalski Family #6) by Shannon Stacey
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?
I've been reading this series for a while. Been patiently waiting for Katie and Josh to get together or something. If you read the previous book you knew it wasn't going to be a pretty and neatly wrapped up love story because Josh wants out of Whitford and away from the family business. Katie is a hometown girl though and so when the time comes that Josh can go out and find himself finally Katie won't and can't go. She's got responsibilities and roots in Whitford and he needs to go and do whatever he needs to do on his own. I wanted to slap him up the head a time or two and show him the error of his ways. Loved both characters though in spite of Josh ticking me off a time or two. Another great read by Shannon Stacey. 4 out of 5 stars for All He Ever Dreamed.
