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....

I love books! Audiobooks take stories to the next level. I'm obsessed with Audible and will try to rate all of my books. Happy Listening! ;)
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.
Mother of 3, grandmother of 6, retired nurse and substance abuse counselor. Thrilled to have the time to read or listen to books again.
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.
I tend to get into grooves where everything I read is historical romance, mystery, light romantic comedy, thrillers, or whatever. I used to read (in print) 2 or 3 books at the same time, switching one to the other, depending on mood. But there are medications for that now, LOL.
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.
To relax I listen to my books. It's like yoga but better, you don't have to bend your body!!
It is a great book it had all the good stuff in it, humor, drama and love.
The fact that they both were very indepent people and they found that they really did need each other.
Sean was believable.
You bet it made me laugh and cry it did it's job.
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.
Love those Kowalski boys.
When Sean realized he loved Emma.
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.
Definitely made me laugh in some spots and cry in others.
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!
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.
