Yours to Keep | [Shannon Stacey]

Yours to Keep

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.

Publisher's Summary

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....

    "Melt-the-heart kind of good!!"

    I LOVED this book. This is actually a series although Audible does not say it in the description. This is the third book in the Kowalski Family series.
    This is the right order:
    - Exclusively Yours
    - undeniably Yours
    - Yours to keep
    This is the first book I've listened to by this author and it certainly will not be the last one.

    Emma convinces Sean Kowalski to be her fake fiancé while her grandma comes to visit her so that grandma can stop worrying and enjoy her own life in sunny Florida. This is a light, funny and very romantic story. The ending is quite emotional. Great narrator also. I've you have listened to Susan Mallery books (like the Buchannan series), you'll love this book and this series. Shannon Stacey has just been added to my authors-I-love-list.

    I enjoy historical, paranormal, and contemporary romance. Also steampunk, sci-fi, fantasy, suspense, and fiction. I'm open to about anything

    "I'll keep it"

    I loved the plot and the characters. The humor is also great (I'm sure my neighbors think I'm a little whacked from seeing me all alone on the patio, giggling), and although you know that love stories always have a happy ending, the getting there was interesting. I want more Kowalski's! The narration was also very pleasant. Lauren Fortgang is becoming one of my favorite narrators.

    "an enjoyable read"

    I really enjoyed this book, it's pleasant and an easy read; I'm in the middle of a trilogy right now that is not an easy read and I needed to take a break from it and listen to some thing that would make me smile and believe that there are really good people out there and this book did that. The narrator was fine, I have never listened to her before which always concerns me as a bad narrator can completely ruin a book.
    I can recommend this book if your looking for a nice romantic love story with mild sexual content.

    "An Amazing Read"

    In life we all expect or hope our lives will have one of those happy ending. "Yours to keep" is definitely a book that allows the mind to relaxed. If your interest lies in romance that has some level of passion and desired.

    Emma who is one of the main character is searching for stability unconsciously and it happened for her. totally amazing.

    A must read for individuals who are in love, about to fall or just into happy endings.

    "Awesome"
    What did you love best about Yours to Keep?

    Love those Kowalski boys.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Yours to Keep?

    When Sean realized he loved Emma.


    Have you listened to any of Lauren Fortgang’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I have listened to most if not all of Lauren's performances. She is awesome, she is always good. As a matter of fact I search out the book she performs because I like her performances so much.


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

    Definitely made me laugh in some spots and cry in others.

    "Easy Romantic Read"

    First for this author. I found the concept to start the story a bit quirky but completely believable. Author guides you through plots, people & situations with ease. I found myself visualizing many of her scenes because of her descriptions. Story line held me and the ending was just as you would hope it would be! Narrator carried perfect cadance and emotions for the themes. Not a waste of time. Great listen!

    If you could sum up Yours to Keep in three words, what would they be?

    Funny, Romantic, Sweet


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

    Safe Harbor. It was a sweet love story of two people that tried their hardest to tell themselves that they didn't need another person in their life. Later realizing that they couldn't live without each other.


    What about Lauren Fortgang’s performance did you like?

    I liked her voice acting.


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

    Laugh and Cry. I caught myself smiling while listening.
