All he ever fought for...
Aspiring congressman Miles McAlister has dreamed of representing his hometown of Chances Inlet, North Carolina, since he was a boy. So when he’s asked to help run his mother’s bed and breakfast he moves home and rolls out his campaign at the same time. But political stardom isn’t a given, especially when he’s expected to compromise the very ideals he’s trying to uphold. Making matters worse is the inn’s stubborn, and distractingly beautiful cook. He’s loved and lost before, so falling for Lori Buchman is not part of his plan.
All she ever feared...
Lori just wants to do her job and be left alone until she can safely move on. The last thing she needs is to get involved with her boss’s son. Miles proves to be too sexy to ignore, however. Their heated fling elicits feelings deeper than either anticipated. But everything about Lori is a lie. She’s harboring a secret that’ll destroy Miles’s career, and when the truth gets out it’s going to shock Chances Inlet to its core, forcing Miles to make the hardest decision of his life.
I wasn't sure I would like Miles and it took awhile for him to grow on me but I eventually wound up liking him. All They Ever Wanted was sweet, it was witty and it was fun. More than just for the romance and the cast which carried the story very well. Lori was a character I liked very well and the lesson in the story about dreams and holding on to your determination to achieve them and how dreams change as you get older and reality affects the path on their way to having them. Its a really good read and I enjoyed it.
