Now, I understand that this is romance and that bestselling romance often follows a formula all everyone knows yet still loves.
Third, the pacing seemed a bit off. They communicated perfectly well after the event.
There were plenty of interesting conflicts around, and this one was just to easy to pile on top of those, more so because it shoved all other conflicts under the carpet. Best of all though, Callie and her self-deprecation.
I thought it was great that Higgins incorporated online dating in with the heroines search for a mate But dang, if he doesn’t shock the heck out of her, she might actually fall for Vermont’s unlikeliest eligible bachelor Feb 22, Elle rated it liked it Shelves: Call it women’s fiction, call it chick-lit, call it “Fiction with strong romantic elements,” whatever, I really enjoyed it.
Then I m All I ever wanted — at least, at that particular time — was a nice, fluffy novel to sink my teeth into. All I ever wanted — at least, at that particular time — was a nice, fluffy novel to sink my teeth into. In this case, our hero Ian is a quiet, withdrawn, difficult to approach man.

All I Ever Wanted by Kristan Higgins
Callie offers to do some public rela Callie Grey has a great job in advertising, wsnted only problem is, she’s still in love with her boss, Mark. For months now, a stone had been sitting on my heart.
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. Apr 05, Nefise rated it really liked it Shelves: Michelle Obama was on one shoulder. Because of like to read Ms Higgins’s plots and story development, I’ll read her u books too. However, I struggled with both the heroine and the hero.
The next day, Ian still hasn’t gotten in contact when Callie is summoned to the family funeral home where her parents tell her and her siblings that they are getting remarried to each other. It was very enjoyable story. But then Mark announces that he has a new girlfriend – a client’s daughter – and he is bringing her to work for the c Callie Grey – short for Calliope Homer’s muse – is turning thirty.
Also, although we still don’t know exactly what’s going on inside Ian’s head, we get a better view than we ever did inside Malone’s. You know, this was really classic Kristan Higgins aside from the fact there was no quasi-incestuous romantic relationships in this book I think that’s a first.
Honestly, What’s not to like? If I could have had any respect for Mark, I would have lost all of it when he started letting Muriel run the show. I’m really into those arrogant, jerks and bad-boy and oh-so-hot heroes. I am in awe of a writer who not only writes great adult characters and realistic families and friendships – but who also gets pets and kids just right! And is Ian ready to move on himself?
What a wonderful find!

All I Ever Wanted by Kristan Higgins
I danted see a lot of people loving this, and I can even see why people love Higgins, but she just isn’t the author for me. Yes, I know, it sound so familiar. Ian was a bit on the stiff side, but he came around by the end, and was totally lovable!! Otherwise, I whole-heartedly recommend this book.
She clings to those words and wastes spends the next year pining after Mark. All I Ever Wanted: I hated that the relationship with Ian did not develop until later in the book.
