Sean Kowalski no sooner leaves the Army than he's recruited by Emma Shaw to be her fake fiance. Emma needs to produce a husband-to-be for her grandmother's upcoming visit, and, though Sean doesn't like the deception, he could use the landscaping job Emma's offering while he decides what to do with his civilian life. And, despite his attraction to Emma, there's no chance he'll fall for a woman with deep roots in a town he's not planning to call home.
Emma's not interested in a real relationship either; not with a man whose idea of home is wherever he drops his duffel bag. No matter how amazing his "pretend" kisses are....

There is just something about "pretending to be in a relationship" story line for me that will never get old. IT always sets up impossibly hilarious situations, awkward moments, and just straight up fun. Emma and Sean do not disappoint in this scenario. When grandma gets in on the fun, I just couldn't stop listening. And as per usual, the ending was worth the wait. But readers- be warned. Not all Kowalski family books are created equal. Kari and Joe was good, Emma and Sean is better! But please, skip Mitch and Paige. I forgo'ed Kevin and Beth because reviewers said stay away- and i'm glad i did.
So do yourself a favor- Jump into Emma and Sean! But be wary of the series as an entirety.
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 is based on a fun premise...girl needs to fill position of 'made up fiance' to ease her worried grandmother's mind.
Maybe a deeper/darker storyline
I really like Lauren Fortgang's performances. She gives each character their own voice.
The subplot of the meddling elders was a lot of fun and made me chuckle throughout.
Happy, hilarious and hot
Emma -she was not whiney, could take care of her self and vulnerable at the same time.
Yes but I would have to make myself stop
I love how the author ties the characters together in her books.
Definately not worth the price even though it was on sale. It was very clicheic and there was nothing unsual about it. I could already guess everything that was going to happen before it did. Not my cup of tea, I'm afraid.
I would definitely recommend. It was fun, fast, and had a fantastic narrator.
The whole story was simple, fun, and totally endearing and kept me listening even when I should have been doing something else.
She is just a great reader and actor. She's great with intonations and just taking her time. Pausing to get a point across and so on. Probably one of, if not THE best narrator I've heard for romances.
I've found a new narrator that I love and an author who I'll continue to read as much as I can! Loved everything about it!
Cute story, easy listen. Kept me entertained
I liked Emma and Sean, Grandma Kat was funny!
Yes big fan and another great performance
No, it wasn't a deep read, but I enjoyed as I like to listened to feel good stories
No tears for me but a lot of laughs. I liked the Kowalski family dynamic and both of the main characters had there own charm. I did predict the ending but it was such a perfect note to a great book. Thank you Shannon Stacey.
Books Make Me HAPPY
Loved the story! Very Entertaining. Love the Kowalski Family and the women they love!
When Sean decided to go along with the plan!
Made me laugh out loud!!!!
Wonderful way to spend my day driving!!!!
This story was the best so far. It was zesty! You'll have to listen to it and decide on the degree of zestiness, but I think it deserves five stars.
The "fake" stuff becoming "real" was well done.
The "fake" couple acting as the "real" couple was nicely conceived. And the grandmother was awesome too. She definitely adds an extra measure of zest to the experience.
Very nice ending. Just like I thought it would end. Nice details.
This book has a lot of details. They are interesting. A woman would probably enjoy all those details more. For me, it was more like a documentary. It's educational. There is revelation in those details that can only be ascertained when you dig a little deeper.
