I read the first Kowalski Family, #1 novel by Shannon Stacey and quite enjoyed it. Since then I have been meaning to catch up on the series but we all know how that goes. When I saw, she had a brand new series I decided to begin there instead. Under the Lights is the first book in the Boys of Fall series centers around the “golden boys of fall” Stewart Mills High School’s legendary championship football team. Now while the cover may scream young adult or new adult, this is in fact a contemporary adult romance with small-town charm and a little football.
As you know I am not a huge fan of contemporary romance, but there are a few exceptions; small town romance series, cowboys (I am a sucker for a man in cowboy boots) and families. Over the summer I read Slow Summer Kisses and picked up this series. Exclusively Yours is the first novel in the Kowalski Family series. It had all the elements I love in a contemporary romance and I quickly consumed this. If you are looking for a feel good, clean romance surrounding a fun, quirky, tight-knit family Shannon Stacey has just the series for you.
Slow Summer Kisses by Shannon Stacey was a heart-warming romance. While this is a novella, the story felt complete and I enjoyed every minute of it. I quickly became wrapped up in this tale and consumed it in one sitting.
It isn’t often that I enjoy all of the stories in an anthology, but Holiday Kisses delivers. The novel contains four contemporary romances surrounding the holiday season. This is the first time I have ever given a 5 coffee cup review to a collection of works. Each story could stand on its own, and I would gladly read the full length version.
