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....

ZESTY Romance Story

Would you listen to Yours to Keep again? Why?

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.

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

The "fake" stuff becoming "real" was well done.

Which character – as performed by Lauren Fortgang – was your favorite?

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.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

Very nice ending. Just like I thought it would end. Nice details.

Any additional comments?

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.

Silly Premise but A Cute Story

What made the experience of listening to Yours to Keep the most enjoyable?

The characters were fun and the love story was cute.

What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

It was very, very cute.

What aspect of Lauren Fortgang’s performance would you have changed?

Her depiction of Sean's voice at times. She didn't give him much of a vocal range.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

No

Any additional comments?

This was pretty darn adorable. Though the overall plot was a bit silly, I liked that she didn't portray any of the characters as boneheads which, with such a goofy premise, could have been a major issue. It was definitely a cute, quick and very entertaining read that will leave you smiling.

Enjoyable

This was an enjoyable book with likable characters and some humorous moments. The overall plot of "be my pretend fiance" is eye-rolling, but the author does manage to give that a new twist, so I went with it. The book isn't as sharp-edged, or as funny, as the first book in the series, but it also doesn't have characters I wanted to put hits out on. ;-)

It doesn't get a better rating because, all-in-all, not that much happens in the book and too much time is spent in the characters heads while they repeat the same thoughts over and over. So, a book worth the time, but not unique.

Narration on the audiobook is quite good.

Light-hearted, Sweet & Funny

With all the paranormal stories, that I truly adore, I wanted something light for a change. This didn't disappoint. It was funny & romantic without the cheesy parts. Although the storyline was a bit predictable it's still a Must Read or......Must Listen to, whichever. The writer & author did a wonderful job.
