All I Ever Wanted by Kristan Higgins

★★★★  I gave this book 4 stars. I thoroughly enjoyed the characters,  the humour,  and the feelings that Higgins evoked. It's sometimes refreshing to read a story that you can feel the passion and desire... without reading about any sex.

I docked a star because this story was written in the first person (Callie) and while she was witty and told a good story.. I really wished I could have heard Ian's side. Ian was a great character, quiet, almost dispassionate, but knew what he wanted.  I think the two made a great pair.  I would recommend this book.

Here's the Blurb:

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....
