Also, I could have done without Callie’s internal conflict. So of course to witness the clash of these two completely different personalities is quite the show and what entertainment! You get the gruff but charming Ian and all these wonderful scenes that make you smile.

In this case, our hero Ian is a quiet, withdrawn, difficult to approach man. Aug 29, Angelc rated it really liked it Shelves: This book followed the recipe mentioned above and while one might think it would get redundant, it doesn’t.
I loved her interactions with Noah, Freddie, Annie, Bowie, and all other members of her family, and Ian. The Michelle Obama Betty Boop thing was taxing on me. Callie has been in love with her boss for ages, and when Sigh.
All I Ever Wanted
kristxn Written in first person from Callie’s point of view, we don’t get to see the alternate viewpoint from Ian like we would in a typical romance.

Even if it doesn’t make sense. Otherwise I think that after a time her characters and books will start to blur together for me. When that didn’t happen I was so relieved, even though the sad emotional moment was still ruined. It was fun reading how the two of them stumbled around each other, like putting together a puzzle where some pieces didn’t seem to fit at first, until you find their perfect place.

He showed great love and compassion for his ex, but turned around and treated the heroine like a convenience.
Since this was told in first-person, we learned a lot about Callie and her family, but I think Ian was underdeveloped. I loved Hester and her daughters, but it freaked me out that Hester got with Louis the creepy alk.
At the wedding the next day, Ian comes and tells Callie that he loves her and cannot live without her. Her parents were crazy but I loved them, too. What’s the Name o The only thing I didn’t really like about her character was how hung up she was on her boss, Mark. The heroine is often a little quirky, maybe over pleasing, often self-deprecating.

Overall book rating
I loved that they got along so well despite their obvious differences. And I was right! Until one day, her thirtieth birthday as a matter of fact, when Mark tells her that he’s dating someone else. Somehow, I had to move on.
I totally adore Ian when kristzn declared his love for Callie. Enter Ian, the new vet, who’s very different from Callie, as he is serious and standoffish though that’s mostly because he’s shy. But Mark may want her back. This is another of my books that has definitely benefitted from a re-read. I have almost forgotten, I loved the moments when I felt that the writer laughed at me.
