  1. It s customary to offer a squeeze to determine if breasts are real or not, you know Don t you watch TV She laughed and shoved the retrieved ballcap back on her head Nice try, Kowalski You ll have to take my word for it Exclusively Yours is the first book in the Kowalski Family series, and wow Just WOW It s one of my absolute favorite Contemporary Romances that I ve read, and I loved every single word, every heartbreaking, heartwarming, funny, sexy minute of it I laughed, I cried and I stayed up [...]



  2. 3.5 starsSo the first thing I need to say is that I don t read a lot of contemporary romance I read a few Sophie Kinsella, Jane Green, and Helen Fielding books when I was in college, and maybe a half dozen sports romances, but it s only been the last 18 ish months that I ve really started reading straight up romance and if it s not Kristen Ashley, Julie James, or a handful of others, I don t know much about it.So know upfront that I m not any kind of authority.But I liked this It had depth than [...]


  3. This one was OK, but, for me, it wasn t up to the same standard as the other books by this author I guess most of my reasons for not liking it much are down to me really, but I had a number of issues with it The hero and heroine dated in high school OK, they spent most of their time in each others pants It was the best sex of the heroine s life So far, so good Then we re told she s always carried a torch for him, and he s the same about her Hmm Why I ask Why would two nearly 40 somethings still [...]


  4. 4.5 stars In short, it s a fun laugh out loud steamy contemporary romance set in the backwoods of New Hampshire complete with mosquitoes, ATVs, bath houses, and marshmallow roasts This is an author to watch as her humor is sharp, the sexual tension tight, the romance believable, and the characters all well developed The premise High school sweethearts Joe and Keri went separate ways when Keri chose to move out west to attend Berkeley and make a name for herself It was the toughest decision she h [...]


  5. One of the debut releases from the brand new epublisher Carina Press, Exclusively Yours is a contemporary romance set in the exotic, mosquito infested wilds of New Hampshire, where the ATVs roam free and the riders all work at giving love a second chance.Keri Daniels ends up in this mess when her boss, the editor in chief of an LA based celebrity magazine, gets a hold of a compromising photo from Keri s past In the photo, she s cuddling with her high school sweetheart, Joe Of course high school [...]


  6. I started reading this as an accident of fate Yes you read it well Me and my friend Aly decided we should do a group or whatever you wanna call it read We picked a couple of books, numbered em and then used an online random number chooser thing to pick what to read This was the result It was actually a nice experiment Worked for my friend, didn t work for me.This review will be a bad one I hated the book I won t be nice so in case you re into this type of books you should probably stop reading n [...]


  7. Everything just worked really well for me right from the start on this one.The writing was engaging, the whole family dynamic worked really well, you got just enough of everyone that it made you want their stories too, it was never over the top in silliness there was just enough, the build up for Joe and Keri didn t drag on too long and reading about their relationship before and how it ended was really bittersweet.Joe gave me the worlds biggest emotional boner, honestly that man The way they al [...]


  8. 4 stars Contemporary RomanceThe Kowalski family is a kooky, fun bunch who take camping and ATVing to the extreme while also dealing with realistic marital struggles, kid stress, and a blast from the past This is a fun, light contemporary romance that had me seriously cracking up at times I just wish there had been a bit romance between Joe and Keri and that the heat level had been turned up a few degrees.


  9. Re read April 2016 My opinion abouthis hasn t much changed but still have some others in series that not read so gonna bite the bullet and give series another go.Originally read November 2011I had seen than a few raving reviews from friends on GR about this story and had high hopes and was really looking forward to reading it Although I enjoyed the story I can t quite see what all the fuss was about Don t get me wrong I enjoyed the story but I just didn t feel the connection between Joe Keri I [...]


  10. With full disclosure, Shannon is a good friend of mine That being said, this book was wonderfully written A great contemporary romance that held me spellbound I couldn t put it down It was fun, with tons of humor, incredible secondary characters I grew to love, and a fantastic romance between the hero and heroine Shannon writes characters you root for, characters who aren t perfect, a compelling story, and her voice simply captures you It wouldn t matter if we were friends or not, I d still sing [...]


  11. Joseph Kowalski and Keri Daniels were high school sweethearts but Keri left Joe broken hearted in order to chase her dreams Now 18 years later, he s a reclusive best selling author and she s a reporter for an entertainment magazine whose editor has just discovered her past relationship with Joe and demands she get the scoop on the guy If she refuses she ll risk losing her job and any chance of moving up a rung or two on the ladder Keri s worked hard to get to where she is and leaves behind sunny [...]


  12. I really enjoyed this story It s been a long while since a book has grabbed my attention and I didn t want to put it down Keri and Joe were high school sweethearts Keri needing something bigger in life left her home town and Joe for California to become a writer for a magazine Fast forward 18 years, Keri s boss demand she gets the inside scoop on Joe or lose her job I really fell for Joe, he was sweet and lovable The secondary characters were a nice addition I m looking forward to Kevin s story [...]

  14. 4 stars Boy, did I like this.One of my favorite tropes is a guy who really desires her and pursues her That is here It felt good He cares for her He does things nice for her He orders food that he remembers she liked He does not cause pain When his sister was mean and covered Keri in mud Joe covered his sister in mud as payback Another couple is separated and in pain I liked Keri s advice to the woman She said tell me the 5 most common things you say to your daughter Now tell me the 5 most commo [...]


  15. Grown ups are awesome Yep This is a romance about adults Funny adults but adults nonetheless And this is a book about families, relationships, history, challenges and some awesome dialogue More to come


  16. Exclusively Yours is a masterpiece of contemporary perfection.Yep, I m still giddy with excitement over reading my first Shannon Stacey book and I literally have heart palpitations thinking about reading the second book in the series Yes, it was that good Was there suspense No Was the story action packed No Was there paranormal shifters or sexy vampires Well, its contemporary so obviously not But what it did have was witty dialogue, a HUGE dose of sweetly simmering sexual tension that made my kn [...]


  17. I listened to this book in the car on a trip The characters made me so angry I was yelling at the iPod adapter Thank goodness I was alone In short, except for Joe, I thought most of the characters were shallow, immature, vindictive, pushy, and stuck in middle school Keri sort of redeemed herself in the end, but then again, the fact that she was so adamant about not being somebody s girl wife mother that her turn around didn t ring true to me I just wanted to know why Joe fell for her, not once b [...]


  18. One star, only because you can t give a minus five star rating.I nearly gave my husband a heart attack when I finished reading this book It was late in the evening when I got to the end and I was so disgusted with the story and its ending that I threw the book aiming for the bin in our room but missed I rarely throw books in disgust, but this one just really pissed me off.Never read anything before by the author, but that doesn t matter because I usually buy the book for the plot, so when I read [...]


  19. More like a 3.5 stars Exclusively Yours is a funny, light and contemporary read that will leave readers wanting a little bit .Lately I ve been reading new books by new authors or at least they are new to me and while I m always a bit reluctant and leery, I have to say that I ve been finding some really good books Exclusively Yours by Shannon Stacey was another good read High School sweethearts Joe Kowalski and Keri Daniels were wildly in teenage love, planning a future until Keri bolted without [...]


  20. 4.5 starsI ve seen this book for so long now and even though I don t read much adult contemporary, something about this book always made me so curious I guess my gut reaction was spot on, cause I really ended up just loving Exclusively Yours Keri Daniels works for spotlight magazine when her boss gives her a choice between getting the dirt on Joe Kowalski a famous private author and Keri s high school ex boyfriend or loss everything she s worked her entire life to achieve But Keri hasn t seen hi [...]


  21. The thought of a family vacation with extended family members would put fear into the hearts of many people I know, even those blessed with loving families Don t get me wrong these vacations can be a lot of fun But consider the outsider invited into this chaos 4 unruly boys nicknamed Mass Weapons of Destruction, a despondent teenage girl, adult siblings married, separated, and divorced, and the grandparents Add in one reclusive and a bestseller list author, and the results are very entertaining. [...]


  22. What s so wrong about leaving your hometown to pursue your dream If Keri gave up her ambitions to stay with her high school sweetheart, she would ve spent her life asking herself what if and blaming Joe for her regrets Also, how can you still be in love with your high school sweetheart twenty years later


  23. I so cannot dig this story I didn t like Keri for being a career orientated woman through and through, first when she was 18 and even now 18 years later And I didn t like Joe any better either for not learning any lesson at all regarding Keri You d have thought he d be a bit guarded this time around too I had a very hard time finishing this off.


  24. 1 to 2 StarsUnfortunately, there wasn t much about this book I enjoyed I ll let my shelves do the reviewing for me Moving on


  25. I wanted to read for a little bit before I went to bed last night, so I opened this up I had heard great things about this series from Sophia She loved how the whole family was so important to the series and since I enjoy the same, I was eager to give it a try well, unfortunately for me, I really got into the book I say unfortunately because I had to go to work in the morning and I ended up staying up way too late because I wanted to read it all I may be cursing myself today, but it was worth it [...]


  26. Genau das, was ich gerade gebraucht habe Eine schlagfertige, romantische, etwas kitschige und sexy Geschichte.Die Story ist nicht neu und bietet auch wenig berraschungen, aber zwischen Keri und Joe fliegen die Fetzen und Funken und manchmal m ssen so seichte Geschichten auch mal sein.Ich bin ein Fan der liebensw rdigen Familie Kowalski und werde bestimmt noch das ein oder andere Buch aus der Reihe verschlingen


  27. Short, sweet, with a touch of spice, and just the right fit for my brooding moody self after another disappointing read I m not a big fan of second chance at love with the same person I figure, when it is over, it s over In fact, I chose this one to fullfill a National Pet Peeve Week requirement in an October Challenge But, this was well done and the Kowlaski family is down to earth fun.
