When Keri Daniels’ editor finds out she has previous carnal knowledge of reclusive bestselling 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.
He proposes an outrageous plan—for every day she survives with his family on their annual camping and four-wheeling trip, Keri can ask one question. Keri agrees; she’s worked too hard to walk away from her career.
But the chemistry between them is still as potent as the bug spray, Joe’s sister is out to avenge his broken heart and Keri hasn’t ridden an ATV since she was ten. Who knew a little blackmail, a whole lot of family and some sizzling romantic interludes could make Keri reconsider the old dream of Keri & Joe 2gether 4ever.
Exclusively Yours is my first Shannon Stacey read. I’ve seen her website, and heard things here and there about her writing, and I kept meaning to pick up one of her books. However, when someone is as unorganized with their reading as I am, some intensions fall by the way side. Well, ever since I finished chapter one of this book, I’ve been kicking myself, with much force and repeatedly. Shannon Stacey is fantastic!
This contemporary romance has every element that I look for in a book. Good, believable plot. Relatable characters that you want to sit down with over coffee. Tight, well written dialogue that pushes the book forward, forcing you to read just five more minutes. My emotions held throughout the book, as I was completely engaged with each scene.
I love a good paranormal, suspense, and sometimes even a dark thriller, but my love is contemporary and like Jennifer Cruisie, Shannon Stacey brings me back, full force, to the uninhibited joy of reading a well written contemporary romance.
You may all consider me a new fan, and can bet on your best Christmas present that this entire series will be in my house soon. I didn’t mention that it’s a series? Well heck, THAT IS THE BEST PART.
