Hailey Genest has seen most of her friends marry and have babies, and she's happy for them, but it was a lot easier before she hit forty. She's spent her entire life in Whitford, Maine, and if she hasn't found her Prince Charming by now, she has to accept she's probably not going to. When a new friend suggests they go on an adventure and embrace being single, Hailey agrees.
Surviving in the woods is game warden Matt Barnett's idea of a relaxing vacation. But when he meets two women in need of help, he leads them back to safety—a task that proves more fun than expected, thanks to a certain hot blonde. He can't resist pushing her buttons, even though she's made it clear that the rugged, outdoorsy type just isn't for her.
Hailey is glad to see the back of her tempting-tour-guide-slash-pain-in-the-ass. When he shows up in her life again, she's determined to avoid him, no matter how good he looks in his uniform. But that's easier said than done in Whitford, especially when he's renting the house right next door….
Fabulous book and series!
This is one of the best series out there. I have loved everyone of these books and I highly recommend you give them a try. I recommend you read them in order to enjoy it to the fullest.
Matt Barnett comes to the rescue of Hailey Genest and her friend Tori when they are lost in the woods. Matt sees Hailey as a very pretty city girl totally not his type. Who has done everything wrong for an out doors adventure and Hailey sees Matt as a "Jeremiah Johnson" wannabe dressed in flannel and the ugliest hat she's ever seen and way to much facial hair. When they met again at the library and Matt's clean cut and dressed in his Game Wardens uniform the real adventure starts. They find out that they maybe everything they didn't know they were looking for.
As usual Shannon Stacey doesn't disappoint. A great easy, funny and happy ending book that keeps the Kowalski family alive. I loved it!
A great read!!
'Taken With You' is book 8 in The Kowalski series by Shannon Stacey. In this book we get to know Kowalski family friend, librarian Hailey Genest and the new game warden Matt Barnett. This book needs to come with a warning 'caution you will crack up laughing several times while reading this story'. I loved Hailey and Matt's story. The characters in this series, the town, the stories are all wonderful. You can't help falling in love with it all. I highly recommend the entire Kowalski series as well all of Shannon Stacey's other work. She never disappoints! I can't wait to see what happens next in the Kowalski series with Max's story 'Falling For Max' due out summer of 2014!
