Exclusively Yours is rated 4 out of 5 by 2.
When Keri Daniels's boss 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. He proposes an outrageous plan—for every day she survives with his family on their annual camping trip, Keri can ask one question.

The chemistry between Joe and Keri is as potent as the bug spray, but 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?

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fun And Light This was a great book, I entered a contest to win the third book in the series and thought it sounded interesting and then I found out this was a series so I thought it would be a good thing to check out the first book before I went ahead and got the third ( as a side note I lost the contest to win the third book grrr ) Anyway I'm very happy I have been reading these in the right order because this was a great story, it was light and fun and very easy to get in to. I thought the concept of the book was great and I really liked both the characters, Joe was really fun and I thought it Keri was a great match for him. Overall this was a great book and if you like contemporary romance check this out I can't wait to get my hands on the second book. :0)

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Family Dynamic Exclusively Yours in the first book in Shannon Stacey’s Kowalski series. A series about the kind of family you would totally want to hang out with. They are kind and loving but also don’t mind having fun at each other’s expense. In this book, they all go camping together for two weeks. All together. At the same camp ground. Mom, dad, sister, sister-in-law, three brothers and four kids. For two weeks. Wow. One of the brothers is Joe. He’s a famous writer of horror novels and leads somewhat of a secluded life. You see, there was a very public ‘incident’ and now he just doesn’t feel like going out and being scrutinized by the public. So he stays in his little town and writes his awesome books. Keri is Joe’s high school girlfriend. They were pretty hot and heavy back then and Joe always assumed they would end up together in a HEA sort of way. But Keri left him after high school to pursue the career she really wanted. She now works for a People sort of magazine as a reporter. Joe is on the magazine’s ‘most want an interview with’ list so when Keri’s crazy b*tch of a boss discovers that Keri and Joe used to date, she tells Keri to either get an interview or get lost. So Keri, who is totally in love with her job, goes back to her hometown to search out Joe. There are so many ways that this plot could have gone. The most likely one would have been Keri hiding the true reason for her wanting to meet up with Joe and it all blowing up in her face but it didn’t go like that at all. I loved that Shannon made Keri up front and honest with Joe. It made their relationship able to bloom without secrets and sneakiness. In order to get her interview with him, Joe ‘convinces’ Keri to go on the two week camping trip with his family. Great idea Joe! Alone in the evenings, interaction with family and old friends…just a great set-up for a romance story. I enjoyed Keri and Joe immensely. They had incredible chemistry! Their moments together as well as their moments with the others were really well written. In fact, this whole book is really well written. I also liked how, even though the book is about Keri and Joe and their newly-budding romance, you see what is going on with the rest of the family. No, none of it is especially good, but it’s interesting to see how these issues were resolved – to see how important communication is in any relationship. The only character I didn’t like much is Terry, Joe’s twin sister. I liked her storyline, but she bugged me. She’s the type of person that has to make everyone around her miserable when she is unhappy. And she’s a snot. I just don’t like characters like her, in books or in real life. I found what she was going through was well written and quite relatable (as in I think it’s a situation many married couples find themselves in) but I just didn’t like her. Or how she treated Keri. Did she ruin the book for me? Not even close. But I could have done without her scenes. I loved Loved LOVED the last scene in this book. Just darling. The cabin and the confusion and the confessions and of course Joe and Keri…all of it perfect. Overall, I really liked Exclusively Yours. I love Shannon’s writing voice. Her lead characters are always wonderful and her books full of heart. They make you *sigh* and the make you smile. And, as I’ve said before, isn’t that what we all want from a contemporary romance read?

About the Book

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.

Read from the Book

"You got busy in the backseat of a '78 Ford Granada with Joseph Kowalski—only the most reclusive best-selling author since J. D. Salinger—and you don't think to tell me about it?" Keri Daniels sucked the last dregs of her too-fruity smoothie through her straw and shrugged at her boss. "Would you want anybody to know?" "That I had sex with Joseph Kowalski?" "No, that you had sex in the backseat of a '78 Granada." Keri had no idea how Tina Deschanel had gotten the dirt on her high school indiscretions, but she knew she was in trouble. An exceptionally well-paid reporter for a glossy weekly entertainment magazine did not withhold carnal knowledge of a celebrity on the editor in chief's most-wanted list. And having kept that juicy little detail to herself wouldn't get Keri any closer to parking her butt in an editorial chair. Tina slipped a photograph from her purse and slid it across the table. Keri didn't look down. She was mentally compiling a short list of the people who knew she'd fogged up the windows of one of the ugliest cars in the history of fossil fuels. Her friends. The cop who'd knocked on the fogged-up window with a flashlight at a really inopportune moment. Her parents, since the cop was in a bad mood that night. The approximately six hundred kids attending her high school that year and anybody they'd told. Maybe short list wasn't the right term. "That was like two decades ago,
