All I Ever Wanted by Kristan Higgins {Stephanie’s Review}


I had a prompt for my Monopoly TBR board to read a favorite author. It’s no secret that Kristan Higgins is my go to favorite so I picked one of the few remaining back list books that I haven’t read. I chose to read All I Ever Wanted by Kristan Higgins.

I really liked this book. This is what I love about Higgins’s writing. There’s the main character and her love struggles, her sister’s struggles, her parents’s struggles (which spawned the sister’s troubles), and her grandfather’s struggles. It is usually a family affair and so much of that is reflective of actual life.

I think we all have a Mark Rousseau in our history. The guy we loved from afar just waiting to realize how wonderful we were? Thankfully mine wasn’t all that aware of me! (Thank you!!) I loved watching Callie and Ian work through all of their garbage to get to their HEA. Also? I have some strong feelings about Mark, Muriel, AND Fleur. Callie is a bigger person than me.

I loved Callie (plus I learned how to pronounce Calliope by listening to the audio!). I loved them all. I’m a sucker for a grumpy Grampy and this one was no different. The supporting characters were fantastic and added so much to the story.

I’m not as in love with Ian as I typically am with Higgins’s leading men but I’m going to chalk that up to him taking a lot of time to open up. Ian required more time than most but I still ended up loving him!

I’m so glad to still have back listed books that I can go back and pick up. They’re always the right amount of sweet that I need!
