When Keri Daniels’ editor finds out she has previous carnal knowledge of reclusive best-selling author Joe Kowalski, she gives Keri a choice: get an interview or get a new job.
Joe’s never forgotten the first girl to break his heart, so he’s intrigued to hear Keri’s back in town—and looking for him. Despite his intense need for privacy, he’ll grant Keri an interview if it means a chance to finish what they started in high school.
He proposes an outrageous plan—for every day she survives with his family on their annual camping and four-wheeling trip, Keri can ask one question. Keri agrees; she’s worked too hard to walk away from her career.
But the chemistry between them is still as potent as the bug spray, Joe’s sister is out to avenge his broken heart, and Keri hasn’t ridden an ATV since she was 10. Who knew a little blackmail, a whole lot of family, and some sizzling romantic interludes could make Keri reconsider the old dream of Keri & Joe 2gether 4ever.

"Stacey’s writing is sharp and sexy and this second-chance story is perfectly hilarious... I enjoyed this book so much - if it were printed on paper I’d hit people with it until they read it." (Sarah Wendell, Salon.com)
While I'm finding myself enjoying Shannon Stacey books and loving the Kolwaski family the plots are ok. But it's the characters that you fall in love with. How Ms. Stacey covers every aspect of an "Utterly Ideal Family". And I thinks it's beautiful how they sick together. And to see how the outsider, here it's Kerri, is slowly but surely turned in to a Kolwaski. And they all love every minute of it. Fun and enjoyable.
Not the best story, very weak characters and seemed rushed. There was one main story and 2 sub stories all wrapped up too quickly, neatly and just didn't flow smoothly. Still a cute (very light) romance. The narrator was good so I gave it 3 stars.
Loved it! Narrator was fantastic! Enjoyed the story and all the details of the characters lives. Definitely a book I'll listen to again! Great job, Ms Stacey. I can't wait to check out your other works!
I am the definition of a contradiction. I am a tomboy but just can't seem to get enough of romance books!
I love this book, it has lead me to a rapid read of the entire series! Its a sweet book for all who remember their first true love. The Kowalski family makes me want to be part of their family and that is why this light leisten is perfect for anyone who wants to just lighten their heart. I must mention that Lauren Fortgang is officially my third best narrator! I can wait to listen to her narrate the rest of this series for me.
I'm a busy mom who loves to listen to books. Mostly I listen on my way to and from work.
Joe was my favorite. An easy going, fun loving, and humble guy.
There was a scene with mud and four wheelers that made me laugh.
This would be a lifetime film.
An entire book about a family's MANY emotional relationship-issues with a LOT of whining and only a few laughs. Reminded me of the awful movie, Couples Retreat...(cringe.) Narrator was pretty bland but then, so was the book.
