Exclusively Yours | [Shannon Stacey]

Exclusively Yours

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.

Publisher's Summary

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.

What the Critics Say

"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)

    "Fun!"

    This was not only a good story but was just flat-out fun to listen to. Very pleasantly surprised! I look forward to more from this author.

    Narration could have been better.

    Story
    "Sugar and spice and everything nice..."

    This is book 1 of the Kowalski Family series. Keri and Joe are high school sweethearts. Then Keri goes away for college and to find professional success as a writer for a magazine. Joe ends up being a very successful horror novel writter. Fast forward 20 years and Keri's boss finds out she has history with Joe and forces her to interview him or lose her job.

    I liked many things about this book. Keri was a realistic heroine. She had her flaws, her attitude and a good sense of humor. Joe, was a real man and I loved his determination to get a second chance at love with Keri. The story was interesting, the passion hot and the situations that happened were very relatable. I really liked the POV that the author uses for this book. She lets you know what both Joe and Keri are thinking and feeling. Best of all, the next two books are even better that this one. This is a sweet, funny and sexy contemporary romance and I loved it.

    Narration: Lauren Fortgang does a very good job! Every character had a distinct voice and she definitely added life and emotions to the story. Will look for more books narrated by Ms. Fortgang.

    "Excellent"

    Great plot and character development and engaging sexual and personal context. This was my first exposure to this author and I am anxiously awaiting future publications.

    I ignore genre labels. Some of my favorite books are outside my genre comfort zone. Listening to audiobooks is still reading. Not theater.

    "Interesting Introduction to Series"

    I enjoyed other books in this series more, but this was a nice introduction. There were sibling characters I would like to have learned more about but later books jumped to another branch of the family so the interesting characters in this book didn't develop.

    The author skillfully let you get to know the characters gradually. At times the plot seemed a little forced. But overall it was an easy read.

    The narrator did a good job. She is well suited to the series.

    Story
    "Where there is Smoke there is Fire & Hot Romance"

    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.

    "Fantastic narrator and very good story"

    I love it when the narrator makes a good story great and that is just what happened here. I think Lauren Fortrang is my new favorite narrator (beating out a 2 year record of Lynn Redgrave who I still think is amazing. I listen to audio books while I work and pull out my ereader to read a different book on breaks and lunches but I was enjoying this book so much I actually sat and listened to it during my breaks instead of reading. And when I got home I went and purchased 5 more books with the same narrator because she is just awesome! I also purchased the sequel to this book and I am enjoying it just as much (same narrator too). I think Shannon Stacey and Lauren Fortrang are an amazing power duo!

    "what could go wrong on a camping trip?"

    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 am a sucker for a series...."
    Would you listen to Exclusively Yours again? Why?

    I would have to say no. This was a fun and light listen, but not my favorite in the Kowalski series.


    What other book might you compare Exclusively Yours to and why?

    I would compare this to a Harlequin romance novel. A little farfetched, a little contrived but everything works out in the end with a happy little bow tied on it.


    What about Lauren Fortgang’s performance did you like?

    I enjoyed her narration, she is not the best that I have heard, but not nearly the worst either!


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    No extreme reactions. It was a nice little story that kept me entertained in traffic!
