Bar owner Kevin Kowalski is used to women throwing their phone numbers at him, but lately he's more interested in finding a woman to settle down with. A woman like Beth Hansen. If only their first meeting hadn't gone so badly. Beth's tending bar at a wedding when she comes face-to-face with a tuxedo-clad man she never thought she'd see again. She tries to keep her distance from Kevin but, by last call, she can't say no to his too-blue eyes or the invitation back to his room.

I knew that after listening to the first of the Kowalski series that this books would be light and cute listen. Because I am sucker for series of course I had to download this one right after finishing the first book. Again it was a cute listen. I loved Kevin but was a little put off with Beth's character. I get it that she was written as an independent strong women, but let the man help you bit! Especially one that was trying to change his way's and do everything right just for you! Even though I was slightly frustrated with the female lead, I still liked the story enough to move on to # 3 in the Kowalski family series.

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.

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!

Nothing sucks the romance out of world travel like a boyfriend who may or may not have broken up with you in a hotel room in Brussels. Jane Jameson's sexy sire Gabriel has always been unpredictable, but the seductive, anonymous notes that await him at each stop of their international vacation, coupled with his evasive behavior over the past few months, finally push Jane onto the next flight home to Half Moon Hollow -- alone, upset, and unsure whether Gabriel just ended their relationship without actually telling her.

Once a devoted children's librarian, Jane Jameson now works at a rundown occult bookstore. Once a regular gal, she's now a vampire. And instead of a bride, she's an eternal bridesmaid -- which leads her to question where exactly her relationship with her irresistibly sexy sire, Gabriel, is headed. Mercurial, enigmatic, apparently commitment-phobic vampires are nothing if not hard to read.

Maybe it was the Shenanigans gift certificate that put her over the edge. When children's librarian and self-professed nice girl Jane Jameson is fired by her beastly boss and handed $25 in potato skins instead of a severance check, she goes on a bender that's sure to become Half Moon Hollow legend. On her way home, she's mistaken for a deer, shot, and left for dead.

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

This is my first download and I got this one because of the price. It is a quick story with a pretty predictable plot, but for the price I would recommend it.

Who was your favorite character and why?

I think more than anything the narrator made the story interesting with the different character voices.

Would you try another book from Sydney Landon and/or Allyson Ryan?

I would have to say no. I was frustrated with the story line.

What could Sydney Landon have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

Given some depth to the actually story.

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

She was ok, not the worst, not the best

If this book were a movie would you go see it?

No

Any additional comments?

One thing that I cannot stand is a weak female character and a dominate jerk male character. The other thing that I cannot stand is when the characters just LOVE each oh so desperately but just cannot talk to each other about the issues that are apparently keeping them apart. Their relationship was flat, boring and felt forced. I honestly thought I was getting a cute romance story but no…it was a contrived story about miscommunications and childish behaviors.

Sadie Hutchins loves her job at the Kentucky Tourism Commission. Not only could her co-workers double as the cast of Parks and Recreation, but she loves finding the unusual sites, hidden gems, and just-plain-odd tourist attractions of her home state. She’s a shoo-in for the director’s job when her boss retires at the end of the year…until hotshot Josh Vaughn shows up to challenge her for the position. Josh is all sophisticated polish while Sadie’s country comfort, and the two have very different ideas of what makes a good campaign.

I am a huge Molly Harper fan and only became addicted after downloading her Nice Girls Don't Wear Fangs as my first audible book. You cannot go wrong with any of her titles. She is a great writer that keeps you laughing and engaged in the book. Amanda Ronconi is one of the best narrators and I love her performance as the different characters and the way she reads the dialogue. Promise you will not be disappointed with this download!
