Book Blurb

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....

My Thoughts

This is a Contemporary Romance Novel. This one was a little different than others because almost from the beginning the two were thrown together because of the pregnancy. Kevin Kowalski is a Sports Bar owner and former Boston Police Officer. Beth is a secretary who's boss fired her when he was arrested in Kevin's Bar. Paulie is Kevin's bar maid. Sam is Paulie's ex. Kevin and Beth have a one night stand as a result she is pregnant. When she tells Kevin he is really excited. Beth is hesitant on getting into a relationship which makes for an interesting story.

My favorite character in Undeniably Yours is Kevin. He was blind-sided by the pregnancy and willing to make the most of it. He was willing to admit his feelings for her instead of run from it all. One of my favorite parts of this books is: “Will you miss me?" he asked, probably hoping to distract her from another French fry grab. "Hey! You're stealing food from you baby. You realize that, right?" "Honey, that baby's not starving. At the rate you're going through Jasper burgers, his-or her- first word will probably be 'moo'.”

My least favorite part of the book wasn't a scene, but a person. Beth's hesitation to form a relationship with Kevin was understandable in the beginning when she didn't know much about it. However, as the story progress's and she gets to know him more and more it seems like she just gets more forceful about them not being together. It just seemed like a little much to me and she was really frustrating to me. I really enjoyed the writing style of Shannon Stacey, with the romance taking center stage and there also being a good bit of humor to go along with it.

Aside from Beth's attitude towards Kevin being a little too much, I really enjoyed this book. Some of the lines really made me laugh. I will continue this series and would also recommend the Kowalski Family Series to anyone who enjoys family focused series'.

  1. Beth was definitely a bit of a pain. She got angry that everyone wanted to help her out and make her life easier.
