Review: Undeniably Yours by Shannon Stacey

 

Undeniably Yours
(Kowalski #2)
by Shannon Stacey

Beth Hansen’s life turns around when Kevin Kowalski walks into her life. As a man who is used to having women throw themselves at him, Beth knows that Kevin is a good time. But despite her initial uncertainty about him, she just can’t resist his charm. So she follows him back to his room for a night of hot sex and nothing more. When she slips out the next morning, Beth finds the threads of her life intertwined with the man she was wrapped around last night.

It seems that Kevin has the special recipe for baby batter because Beth becomes pregnant with his child. While Kevin isn’t allergic to the idea of being a father, it seems that Beth is prone to hives just thinking about being in a relationship.

It took me about a month to read this book and this is not a good sign. Initially, I thought it was because I just wasn’t in the mood for a contemporary romance so I set it down for awhile, thinking to come back to it when I wanted something light and uplifting. Nope. Even weeks later I found myself dragging through these pages.

First off, I did not like Beth. At all. Shortly after starting this book, Beth was giving off warning vibes and I had a feeling she would be one of those heroines I wanted to strangle. I gave her time, I really did. A month in fact, and yet she was still the same. I didn’t like her attitude about the “no relationship” thing. That didn’t fly with me. Her constant rejection made me angry. I just don’t like the girl.

Which leads me to Kevin Kowalski whom I did like, but felt he was wasting his efforts on a woman like Beth. He was sexy, fun and sweet but I thought he could have done better. Her rejections burned and I felt sorry for him more than I actually liked him. I hope that makes sense. I think it was because of Beth that I found myself not liking this book. I have read romances where baby drama is a big factor but this one just didn’t work for me.

It dragged and I found it very hard to like or care about the characters. And when I don’t particularly care about the characters in a book, it’s hard for me to want to know what happens with their story. Maybe this book will be different for you.

I appreciate what you are trying to say. I'm not big on unnecessary angst either. And just as in real life, sometimes you just don't like someone. (-;

At least, you tried to finish it.
Thanks for the review!
