'All He Ever Desired' is Ryan Kowalski's second chance at love with Lauren Carpenter, a woman he was in love with but who married his best friend instead. Now Lauren's been divorced for years, has a teenage son and has been thinking what could've happened if she had said yes to Ryan all those years ago.

What I loved:

-The return of my favorite Kowalskis from book 1 to 3. Seeing glimpses of what they've done with their lives and what they'll keep doing.

What I liked:

-The progress of Ryan and Lauren's relationship. They both knew they were not the people they were years ago and instead of clinging to that image, they got to know each other and fall in love with who they were now.

-The issue of Lauren rejecting Ryan years ago was talked early so both hero and heroine moved on from it and could focus on the now.

What I didn't like:

-Ryan and Lauren talked the issue I mentioned above early but when the "conflict" came, the progress they've made throughout the whole book, vanished. And they (especially Lauren) overreacted.

-The "conflict" is resolved nicely and too fast. Ryan, Lauren and Nick (Lauren's son) are about to make a huge change but everyone agrees about making the change as if it was no big deal; especially Nick. The kid's been in trouble, he is a teenager and he just agrees on a blink of an eye.

-And talking about Nick. Lauren was worried that if Ryan left, Nick would be heartbroken but they barely spent time together to actually form a strong bond. Ryan also said he loved the kid but again, the moments they spent together were few. I believed he cared about him but didn't believe the loving part.

OVERALL

I enjoyed reading 'All he Ever desired', it was an entertaining reading but my issue with it (and with the previous book) is that the stories get build up and once the end comes, it doesn't deliver.

Everything gets wrapped up in a pretty paper, but the paper's got wrinkles and it's missing a bow.

As a fan of the Kowalski series I was very disappointed with this installment. I'll start by saying that despite the impression given that this is a story about a "second chance at love" -- it isn't really. There was never a romance between Ryan and Lauren earlier, just a one-sided interest on Ryan's part. The whole past relationship was a bit strange but mainly it was less than we anticipated. But beyond that, the story of Lauren and Ryan didn't really hold together well: the past wasn't such that it would lead to immediate attraction now and the passion between them didn't come across at all. Other than the lust we are told about, I couldn't see why these two people belonged together or what ties would lead to a real HEA. And the build up of the lust itself was a bit flat.
Ms. Stacey usually writes a good story but this one felt choppy and was full of extraneous details that didn't seem to serve any purpose or help develop the plot. One example of this is Lauren's cold: we had to read about how bad she felt, how Ryan brought her soup, and how she felt better fast -- and we had to hear about the recipe for this magical soup for pages. I kept expecting this to have some bearing on the plot or on the relationship or something, but I couldn't see what it had to do with anything and why we had to read so much about it. This type of thing happened a number of times throughout the book. I don't know if they were included to make the book longer or whether it was poor editing and someone took out the important parts that would explain why these things were left in the final version. In either case they were distractions and not particularly interesting.
Also, H/h had some interesting problems to overcome before they could have a believable HEA but they were raised late in the story (just one of a number of these, was Lauren not wanting kids; it doesn't come up until almost the end of the story!) and were resolved way too easily or quickly with little insight into the characters' thinking.
One thing that IS fun is the Kowalski family relationships and the dialogue between the brothers. These rang true, as did the behavior and dialogue of Nick, Lauren's 16 year old son.
This book is part of a series so I won't complain about the plot lines which are raised and left unresolved: I assume these will be resolved in the next installment (e.g. constant references to Rose's cough, the relationship with Andy, etc.) Because of these unresolved threads, I think this book might not stand alone very well for a reader who hasn't read the earlier installments.
In all this was a disappointment. If you are a Kowalski series fan you'll want to read this in order to keep up to date on the happenings in that family even though this one is a miss. If you aren't, this is definitely not the book with which to start.

I liked this book. Unlike the other readers, I don't have a problem with the past relationship not having a traumatic breakup. A missed opportunity seems more realistic. The character of Ryan avoided most hero stereotypes, which I appreciated. He's not commitment-phobic, a man-whore, or walking sex no woman can resist. Lauren is also a good character and I appreciated her relationship with her son and her ex-husband. The HEA was mostly intelligent and since this is book five of a long series, we'll definitely hear what happens next. Shannon Stacey is good about following up with previous characters so although I prefer an epilogue, this wasn't a problem for me.

Shannon Stacey does it again. I don't think I'll ever be able to get enough of this Kowalski family. They are funny, boisterous, caring, loveable, and so dang HOT!!! Each and every one of them. And who wouldn't want to be raised by people like Mary, Leo, and Rosie. Yes they can be and most times are--- a bunch of busy bodies, but mostly they they just love their family so much and they all want the best for each & every one of them. What I wouldn't give to be apart of a big close-nit family like the Kowalski's.

Would I recommend this book? Yes! Most definitely.

This book was good, but too short. I really liked Ryan and Lauren, but I thought the story ended too quickly. This book needed an epilogue. I would have liked to see Lauren and Nick move in with Ryan and see the everyday interaction. Maybe we'll touch base with all of them in one of the future books. It was still a good story though.

I stumbled across this series (have purchased them all) when I was looking at recommendations by Amazon. I would recommend reading them in order as this is the 5th book. (I didn't realize that at the time or wasn't paying attention.) I have since read the others and really have enjoyed them. No dramatic plot twists, but great afternoon read.
