Review: All He Ever Needed, by Shannon Stacey
Mitch's job requires him to travel, and he likes it that way. But when he's called home to take care of the family lodge, he finds himself intrigued by the new diner owner who seems to want nothing to do with him. Paige spent her whole childhood moving from one place to the next. So when she found a place she loved, she finally set down the roots she dreamed about. Until Mitch comes along to disrupt her new life, and throws her possible future out the window.
This book was more about two people finding themselves and that illustrious place called "home" than anything else. Most impressive was the conclusion. This wasn't wrapped in a tidy bow, and neither character gave up what they wanted. Perfect compromise. Realistic. The romance was good, the plot decent, but once or twice I found the hero and heroine's actions uncharacteristic. Regardless, this was a great read with a delightful setting and secondary characters.
