Review: All I Ever Wanted – Kristan Higgins

One Happily-Ever-After Rocking Chair… 
and no sign of any forthcoming babies to rock in ol’ Georgebury, Vermont. For Callie Grey, turning thirty means coming to grips with the fact that her boss (and five-week fling) is way overdue in his marriage proposal. And way off track because Mark has suddenly announced his engagement to the company’s new Miss Perfect. If that isn’t bad enough, her mom decides to throw her a three-oh birthday bash in the family funeral home. 
Bad goes to worse when she stirs up a crazy relationship with the town’s not so warm and fuzzy veterinarian, Ian McFarland, in order to flag Mark’s attention. So Ian is more comfortable with animals…. So he’s formal, orderly and just a bit tense. The ever-friendly, fun-loving and spontaneous Callie decides it’s time for Ian to get a personality makeover. But dang, if he doesn’t shock the heck out of her, she might actually fall for Vermont’s unlikeliest eligible bachelor…. 
My thoughts:
Edit:This review was written 2 weeks ago when I had that little reviewing funk.
I am still feeling the urge to review in another way. Maybe the same old same old just wont cut it for me anymore.
The Good:
Callie was real, she was warm and she was nice and I liked her. And yes Ian was the opposite, cold, hard to get close to and guarded. But that is why I liked him because he was real too. Everyone is not open and cheerful and willing to fall in love, even willing to go around kissing people. Together they seem like a mess that wont happen, but it’s a romance book and it happens and I felt it.
The story:
Crushing over someone who seems like an ass. Trouble at work. Family time and family drama. And taking the step to meet someone else. That is what this book was about and I enjoyed it.
The Bad:
I don’t know here. There wasn’t anything bad about the book. It was fun, it was cute and at one point it even made me want to cry. So nothing bad. But hey I needed the category anyway.

Fans of romance and small towns.
