Publisher's Summary

He won't stay put for a woman, and she won't chase after any man...
Mitch Kowalski lives out of a suitcase - and he likes it that way. Traveling for work has the added bonus of scaring off women who would otherwise try to tie him down. But when he's called home to help with the family lodge, he's intrigued by the new girl in town and her insistence that she doesn't need a man. If there's one thing Mitch can't resist, it's a challenge.
After a nomadic childhood, Paige Sullivan is finally putting down roots. Determined to stand on her own two feet, she lives by the motto "Men are a luxury, not a necessity". But when Mr. Tall, Dark and Hot pulls up a stool in her diner and offers her six weeks of naughty fun with a built-in expiration date, she's tempted to indulge.
They're the perfect match for a no-strings fling. Until they realize their sexy affair has become anything but casual....

Bad Narration

It's so sad to get a book and not be able to enjoy it because of the narration. It's a waste

Could not finish--narrator is that bad.

What disappointed you about All He Ever Needed?

The narrator. It was hard to tell if the writing was cheesy or if it was just the way she read things. Bad inflection, bad acting, bad reading of dialogue. Little differentiation between voices, really awkward stressing of words, and the "smile in her voice" was uncalled for when telling me about vacuum cleaners--a hint: they aren't that exciting.
Bad bad bad.
Maybe I'll go grab the book from the library and give it a try that way.


Would you ever listen to anything by Shannon Stacey again?

Maybe, depending on the narrator. I have read her paper books and enjoyed a few of them.


Would you be willing to try another one of Renee Werbowski’s performances?

Not if you paid me. Nails on a chalkboard are probably better.


If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from All He Ever Needed?

Some of the excessive "tell and not show" stuff.


Any additional comments?

Please don't waste your credits, readers. Go buy or rent the book and listen to something else. Stacey's books are usually enjoyable in print form, not the best but not awful either, but this was just baaaaaaad.
