Book Review: "All I Ever Wanted"

All I Ever Wanted by Kristan Higgins
"Bad turns to worse for Callie Grey, who's about to turn 30, when her boss (and five-week fling) announces his engagement to someone else. To get Mark's attention, Callie stirs up a crazy relationship with not-so-warm-and-fuzzy veterinarian Ian MacFarland. Original. One Happily-Ever-After Rocking Chair...and no sign of any forthcoming babies to rock in ol' Georgebury, Vermont. For Callie Grey, turning thirty means coming to grips with the fact that her boss (and five-week fling) is way overdue in his marriage proposal. And way off track because Mark has suddenly announced his engagement to the company's new Miss Perfect. If that isn't bad enough, her mom decides to throw her a three-oh birthday bash in the family funeral home.Bad goes to worse when she stirs up a crazy relationship with the town's not so warm and fuzzy veterinarian, Ian McFarland, in order to flag Mark's attention. So Ian is more comfortable with animals.... So he's formal, orderly and just a bit tense. The ever-friendly, fun-loving and spontaneous Callie decides it's time for Ian to get a personality makeover. But dang, if he doesn't shock the heck out of her, she might actually fall for Vermont's unlikeliest eligible bachelor...."

OK I have to say... there are so many freakin' good books out there! THIS is definitely one of them!!! I laughed so much as the pun of her thoughts. I mean... she would use Betty Boop and Michelle Obama as her inner voices of reason (playing devil's advocate, of course). Then said she was 'fluffy'... which I often have said about my own body. I actually LOL when she used the term 'food baby' to describe her tummy. OMG, I thought to myself. That is what I have... a chocolate food baby! hehehe So the book was great and the setting was Vermont, which makes me want to visit in the Fall. The career she had was amazing and totally something I could have done... if I have the degree. lol OK So back to the book.... typical girl likes boy; boy plays girl; girl defends boy; boy gets engaged to another woman; girl goes ballistic! hehehe LOVED IT! Even mentions... Bono!
