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....

I think the book was as good as the others but it was very hard to keep track who was taking. There was little change in voice from person to person and there was no pause between scenes. I'm glad the rest of the books went back to the original narrator!
Renee is horrible. Her voice just made this book a bust. Should redo this book with Lauren. Very very unhappy
Struggled to finish this book. Very bad narrator and just an average story. Big letdown after the other books in the series. Very disappointing
I'm a busy mom who loves to listen to books. Mostly I listen on my way to and from work.
I liked the overall continuation of the Kowalski brothers/family
Just the overall small town feel of the book.
I liked the other one better who did book 1-3. Renee's performance was just ok! Often times you couldn't tell when one sentence ended and another began. She read it to close together.
Another fun love story and continuation of the series.
I've cherry picked my way through Shannon Stacey's Kowalski family. I really liked Keri and Joe, bypassed Kevin and Beth, LOVED Sean and Emma, and then made the mistake of reading Mitch and Paige. Bo-ring. I really liked Mitch's character, he was a strong and funny male lead. Paige was wishy-washy, boring, slightly cold, and mostly indifferent. Her backstory did not make me believe she was "oh-so-damaged" enough to have a sticky note on her fridge that read "you don't need a man" or some kind of rubbish like that.
It took me a long time to finally finish their story, and at the end- it was just ho-hum. Definitely not a re-read, or credit worthy. Sigh, should have read other reviewers- and will continue to cherry pick my way through the Kowalski family series!
No spoilers! Love HOT, sexy books w/a plot. No vampires, paranormal, teens 4 me. I also review in exchange for books-lots of fun surprises!
For a predictable series, I didn't 'see' [guess] the ending of this book until about 2/3rds of the way through.
Yes, see next answer.
Yes, it is a sweet, feel good, 'vanilla' romance series. She also left a couple characters stories open to continue this series.
Steady, smooth, professional
This is MUCH MORE TAME than I usually like, but I got them on sale and it was nice filler while I wait for my favorite authors...Shayla Black, Maya Banks, etc.
Meh. Probably not. I got hooked onto the Kowalski family series largely bc of the original narrator's delivery, so it was jarring to have someone else's voice telling a continuation of the Kowalski story. I also got the Kindle version (thinking I should just read it so I could get thru the stories in order) but I think I've just gotten used to having these stories read to me by the original narrator. It was like I was missing the jokes and the witty nuances of the dialogue on my own.
Skipping to the next in this series that has the original narrator (Lauren Fortgang)
Probably a non-fiction. Performance of a fictional story with a variety of characters doesn't seem to be her thing (just based on this).... However, her reading was straightforward & basically good.
No. Even though I know better, I should never ignore other people's reviews on Audible!
Enjoyable but better listened to in series order. I've enoyed other books in the Kowalski series hence downloaded and listened to this one when it popped up in new releases. Unfortunately I spent a lot of time at the beginning trying to understand the connection to the earlier books until I realized I had skipped book 3.
the story line - it was so predictable
narrator was fine, not my favorite but she did a good job
