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 succe..Show More »ss 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.
I like Shannon Stacey but this is really bad. Beth, the main character is so unlikeable (a real #itch) that you do not pull for her or them as a coup..Show More »le. After 20 chapters of her being "prickly" she realizes she is in love with Kevin tells him on a napkin and they get married - all this in the last 5 minutes of the audiobook. Beth pushes him (and everyone else) away for no explained reason, holds on to this for 98% of the book and then instantly (again for no explained reason) decides she loves him and wants to get married.
There was no character development to show how she changed and what made her break her though and open herself up to the relationship. The dialog between the brothers, sister and parents was ridiculous and the author should be embarrassed. I know if it were me I'd change my name so no one knew I wrote such a bad bunch of trash. The narrator was okay.
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..Show More ». 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.
