Review: Exclusively Yours by Shannon Stacey

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.

Never having read a book by Ms. Stacey, I wasn't certain what to expect.  Once I finished Exclusively Yours, I shouldn't have worried.

What a wonderful story.  Sweet, a little bit sexy, yet wholeheartedly (and wholly) passionate.  Real characters and true-to-life situations (with the exception of Joe's ex-girlfriend, because that seems somewhat ... odd ...).  This is one of those stories that sticks with you, minor issues and all, long after the end.  I enjoyed it very much. 

And where is the sequel featuring Joe's little brother, Kevin? 

(Thanks to NetGalley and Carina Press for providing me with an ARC of this novel.)
