I know she finally “got over” Mark, but only because she was in another relationship with the hero who IMHO, wasn’t really great hero material. Ian was definitely an interesting character and I enjoyed seeing him develop over the book. In addition to the strong connection I developed with Callie, there are also some very emotional and difficult moments that ground this story and keep it from being too cute.
Since this was told in first-person, we learned a lot about Callie and her family, but I think Ian was underdeveloped.
This time, I just really wanted something fluffy, something that wouldn’t really make me think too much but I would still enjoy. I like the kind of stories, romances that she writes. I was so kristna After finishing reading it I just wished the characters were real. Krsitan can Callie put the past behind her to find her own happiness?
On the day before her parents’ wedding, Callie gives Ian her precious Morelock chair, and that, more than anything, is a declaration of her love. I really liked All I Ever Wantedif it’s not obvious yet. My favorite quotes will confirm why I like it so much: Callie and O catastrophically awesome combination of sparkles and prickles filled me with joy. This book was my refuge for an all too short, very enjoyable time.

They also tackles other relationships that involve the family, friends, and even dogs! At the DMV she cries in line and makes phone calls to her sister and friend. Perhaps you think you have enough of this. The dog is still annoying. She is happily married to a heroic firefighter and the mother of two higtins children. Overall, this is just a fun, enjoyable book with some depth to back itself up.

I heard not the voice of the performer, but the voice of each individual person as it breathed and lived.
Her father, meanwhile, is trying to win her mother back, des Callie Grey is turning thirty, and her life simply isn’t going as planned. The point is, we really get to know the characters –their flaws and foibles plus their good sides–and it just helps make the story. They communicated perfectly well after the event.
My heart gave a nearly painful squeeze. All in all, this was a good read. And then I didn’t like wnted it was solved either, because of the magnitude of the BM, the get back together speech should have been way more powerful. I care about them.
Overall book rating
Sometimes, being an optimist was quite the fucking effort. Australian edition US edition Title: Her parents are divorced, although her father is trying to win back her mother, and her sister Hester is a total riot.
A Million More Pages: It has a chick-lit feel and is wnted from the first person, but the romance features heavily in the second half of the book.
Callie is likable and has the requisite quirky hobby! I love watching their feelings evolve from hate to friendship and at last to love.
All I Ever Wanted
The ever-friendly, fun-loving and spontaneous Callie decides it’s time for Ian to get a personality makeover. Not because I have anything against the particular plot point that caused the BM, but because Ian and Callie didn’t need it.
