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)
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!
It was a nice story with interesting and funny characters.
Not quite up to the level of Sophie Kinsella or Marian Keyes-but fun.
She did a great job with male and female characters-hard to do, but she did it!
Sure, but I could leave it and come back
I will probably buy the remaining in the series but only on sale.
The story was light and funny.
The entire family and the similarities of real life.
Great narrator. Engaging and funny.
The story would make me laugh, cry and I couldn't wait to listen more.
Halfway through this book, I went ahead and bought the next book in the series.
This was a good romance with plenty of substance in the story, as well as many loveable family members to follow. Just enough detail to keep it interesting and not too fluffy, with some steaminess as well. The narration by Lauren Fortgang was fabulous!
Lauren is great
The characters just meshed. Love the interactions between them.
Will read her other books.
Goodreads recommended this book for me and I had it in my Wish List for quite awhile. I didn't like the description of the book, felt it wasn't something I wouldn't enjoy. I was wrong! I ended up reading a free novella from Shannon Stacey, which I liked (it was part of the Kowalski series) and decided to give it a try. It wasn't what I expected from the description. I don't want to give away any of the plot, so let me just say I was pleasantly surprised by the book and will be reading more of the series.
I love books, it's my great escape.
Keri and Joe were young lovers, separated by almost 20 years and too much water under the bridge. They find each other and love again. I loved this story because it’s usually the woman who is left by the man and this is a great twist because this time the man was left by the woman. Keri has to eat crow so to speak because she comes back to Joe needing a favor to save her job. Like the old saying goes, where there is smoke there is fire. These high school sweethearts reunite after 20 year and find that it’s better with time. I am really starting to love the Kowalski family. This is the first book in a great series. I am definitely going to get them all.
The narrators voice was always pleasant and the story was very sweet.
It is fine just the way it is.
The scene where they get into the mud and the girls get soaked and muddy.
Childhood friends are the best friends.
I have found myself really enjoying romantic stories recently. This one was great. I listen on my commute (1 hour each way) and found myself looking forward to getting back in the car and back into the story. I cared about the characters and thought about them even after I'd finished the whole audio book. The acting/reading was excellent. (That's really important to me.) I would recommend this book highly to anyone who enjoys this genre.
Light, Fun, Frivolous
This book is by no way a masterpiece, but for a fun listen it hits the spot.
The narration was wonderful, and believable, and not all the characters sounded the same.
Joe, he was stable, successful and madly in love without being a pushover.
