Sean Kowalski no sooner leaves the army than he’s recruited by Emma Shaw to be her fake fiancĂ©. 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…
I saw Yours To Keep on netgalley, loved the cover, and requested it. I had no idea that it was a series, and that I would be reading book three. But, no matter, I understood everything perfectly, because it seems that each book is about a different member of the family, so you don’t have to read the books in any kind of order.

I loved Yours To Keep. It was completely adorable. It was fun and fresh. Reading the summary, I’m sure you can tell what the outcome of this is going to be, but Shannon Stacey added some hilarious surprise twists that I absolutely loved!

Sean was amazing. He’s strong, capable, hot, and a military man. But he’s also sweet, funny, kind and respectful. He was definitely swoon-worthy! Emma got herself in such a predicament that I couldn’t help but feel bad for her, but she carried herself in such a way that was believable. I was rooting for Sean and Emma the entire time, but they were both so freakin’ stubborn, I thought they would never get together!

I have nothing but awesome things to say about Yours To Keep, and I have been gushing to my friends about this book for weeks now. I recommend downloading this book onto your nook or kindle ASAP and spend a night curled up in bed laughing your ass off and enjoying a wonderful story.

And for those of you who read it, how adorable were those post-its!


  1. I've seen a few people say this one was really cute and fun! Really glad you enjoyed it - I find it's nice to read something adorable to take a break from all the paranormal stuff :P. Great review!

  2. I loved this book too. The whole Kowalski family was so much fun to read about. I am hoping to read the other books in the series soon. The post-it notes were so cute!!!
