Exclusively Yours (Kowalski Family, #1)Exclusively Yours by Shannon Stacey

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is a love story of high school sweethearts reuniting, Kari Daniels is a reporter for a celebrity magazine, when her boss finds out she is a friend/high school sweetheart of Joseph Kowalski, bestselling reclusive author, Keri gets ordered to get the story or lose her job.

The love story between these two is hot and you want them to reunite at least to have hot steamy sex. But will Keri sell Joe down the river, will she fall back in love. Can the Kowalski family forgive her for breaking their son/brothers heart. Well you will just have to read it.

This is the first book in the Kowalski family series, and it was funny and had many laughable moments. I would recommend it.

Shannon Stacey writing is easy to read flows well, her books for me are the kind you read at one sitting as I don’t want to put down. In this series I have noticed and really like that she always includes a side story of another couples struggles or love life. Like I said earlier I really like her writing style.

18% Gray

18% Gray18% Gray by Anne Tenino

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I really didn’t expect to enjoy this story as much as I did. I kept seeing it and would pass it by when I read the information on it. Then I saw a review from a friend here on Goodreads who rated it 5 stars.
It was then I considered maybe I should take a look at it again.
I still figured I wouldn’t enjoy it as one it is a futuristic book and the other is I am Canadian and reading about USA being separated and fighting wasn’t something I thought I would enjoy in a m/m romance story.
But in saying that I was really shocked at how much I enjoyed the book, it kept me interested and I wanted to know what was going to happen next. I liked both characters the sex scenes were hot, the story was comical at times and made me laugh out loud.
It is a well written book and the way the author wrote the book to be funny, cleaver and a bit over the top at times it was a great read. It was not to confusing for a futuristic novel, I am hoping for a sequel.

In a future where the United States has split along party lines, Agent Matt Tennimore's job is to get people out of the Confederated Red States, whether they're captured special ops agents from his own country or gay CRS citizens who've petitioned for asylum. He never expected to have to retrieve his high school crush, aka the guy who ostracized him for being gay.
Rescuing James Ayala isn't going to be easy: he's crawling with tracking nanos and has a cybernetic brain implant that's granted him psychic power he isn't sure how to control. That's the good news. The bad? The implant is compromising James's mental stability.

So they're on the run, avoiding surveillance by AI aircraft and hiding from enemy militia. Then James confesses he tormented Matt in high school because James wanted him. Matt can't resist the temptation James offers, but he wants so much more than sex, assuming they ever make it home alive. Is James really a good bet when he's got a ticking time bomb in his brain and there's the question of how much he's actually changed?

Blind Items

Blind ItemsBlind Items by Kate McMurray

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Drew is a journalist and is assigned a job to find out information on the son of an anti-gay Senator who is in the running for President.

Johnathon is the son of Richard Granger, Senator and Presidential candidate, who is deeply in the closet and the fear of what would happen if his father or the press finds out his secret.

This story is well written; I really liked both characters and how they were portrayed as intelligent sexy men. As the story develops Drew knows he won’t go back in the closet and Johnathon is still terrified to come out of his. I kept turning the pages to see what was going to happen, if you enjoy m/m romance novels this one is for you.

So the downfall to the story is the ending, there was no epilogue and it left me wanting to know how the father reacted how Drew and Johnathon are? I am seriously hoping for a sequel. And I definitely will buy it when it hits the shelves.

Undeniably Yours (Kowalski Family, #2)Undeniably Yours by Shannon Stacey

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Opening Line: "Every time the New England Patriots chalked one up in the win column, Kevin Kowalski got laid."

The story of Kevin and Beth starts off with a one night stand to finding out she is pregnant to moving into the apartment across the hall from him, and then meeting his whole family. Nothing will ever be the same for Beth. This is a funny, sweet story and made me laugh.

Undeniably Yours (Kowalski Family #2) is the second book I’ve read by Shannon Stacey, though I’ve been reading the series backwards starting off with...Yours to Keep #3, and then Undeniably Yours, the Kowalski Series is funny, romantic and heart warming. 

Shannon Stacey’s writing keeps you going back for more. Now I will go look to read the first book in this series (Exclusively Yours (Kowalski Family, #1).

Great author of contemporary romance.

Publisher: Carina Press
How I got this book: NetGalley

Yours To Keep by Shannon Stacey

Yours To Keep (Kowalski Family, #3)Yours To Keep by Shannon Stacey

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Yours To Keep is one of the better books I've read this year, it was funny, romantic and it is also one of those books once you start to read it very hard to put down.

This is the first book I've read by Shannon Stacey and her writing is superb, when a writer can make you laugh out loud and feel emotions that make you shed a tear you know the writing is good. This is the 3rd book in the Kowalski series, and now I have to go back and read book one and two.

Sean Kowalski has just been released from the army, when Emma Shaw knocks on his door to tell him he is her fake fiancé. Emma has told her grandmother that she was engaged to stop her from worrying about her so much. With her grandmother coming to visit she has to convince Sean to go along with the plan.

Neither one is interested in a relationship, but the attraction and chemistry between them is harder to ignore then they both imagined.

His pretend kisses .......
