Genres: Contemporary, Fiction, Romance
Bar owner Kevin Kowalski is used to women throwing their phone numbers at him. Even if lately he's been more interested in finding Mrs. Right than Miss Right Now. Enter Beth Hansen.
Kevin and Beth may have started out all wrong, with an impromptu passionate encounter at a wedding, followed by a walk of shame. Yet Kevin knows there's more to their relationship than a one-night stand. Especially when Beth turns up pregnant.
Kevin may be ready for the "next step," but Beth doesn't want a relationship with a former playboy, however irresistible he might be. And it's going to take a lot to convince her to go on a second date with the father of her child....
Loud, rowdy, and oh so fun!
Thoughts on Undeniably Yours
Shannon Stacey writes the really sweet, sexy contemporary romances I get a hankering for upon occasion. It isn’t even just the main characters that do it for me. It’s the rowdy, overwhelming family that surrounds them and grounds them and drives them both a little crazy.
I love big, crazy families. They’re so fun! (and loud. and overwhelming. Hey. Someone should ask me about the time MY family went into intimate detail about how to properly slaughter a pig over a holiday dinner once. THAT WAS FUN. I’m lying. It wasn’t so much on the fun side. On the other hand, I get to pull out that story every so often and remind people that there are those in my family who would totally survive an apocalyptic societal meltdown because they have mad slaughtering skillz. Good times. Good times.)
What was I talking about again? OH. Right. Rowdy families. And Kevin and Beth. I’m going to say that I REALLY enjoyed this book overall, but there were times Beth’s stubborn refusal to accept any help made me want to give her a good shake. I totally get not wanting to be dependent on anyone and trying to do it alone because she’s afraid of not being able to do it at all, but Kevin was so refreshingly patient with her. He put up with A LOT. And his balls weren’t thanking him for it.
Not at all.
Anyway. I liked it. I liked Kevin and the respect he showed Beth even though it killed him a little inside to stand back. I liked Beth and how panicked she got whenever someone mentioned family. And I liked those Kowalskis. They’re loud and sometimes pushy, but they love with all their hearts.
