TAKEN WITH YOU                                   SHANNON STACEY
Posted:  April 28, 2014

Taken with You by Shannon Stacey 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...

     Okay, by now if most of you have been avid readers of our blog or even my reviews you know I am a sucker for these family dramas.  Well, Shannon Stacey doesn’t disappoint in this story which is an off shoot of the actual family, The Kowalski series, friend Hailey Genest the librarian.
     You see she is 40 now an see her life passing her by and her clock ticking loudly, and all her close BFF;s have become traders by marrying or shacking up. It’s worse, because of those sexy as hell Kowalski Boys.  So, she befriends a much younger woman who swears/vows never to marry only to bed her men.
     Tori is a young woman of 2014 who seems bold and frisky.  They sign up for a single woman’s hiking weekend.  Something new kind of, “I am Woman hear me Roar!” But, they are not out doorsie.  Hailey being the worse.  Going on Pinterest to make her own bug spray that only attracts them, buys new hiking boots, and puts on make-up.  At least their one saving grace being that Matt was out hiking when they got separated from their group and lost.
     First impressions are hard to break especially by him looking like a cave man with hiking gear.  Off the bat she wouldn’t gave him the time of day.  Little did she know he caught the look she gave him and he wrote her off too?  Which is now hard because one week later he is her next door neighbor.  Life and fate are fickled ladies.  Not only did they want each other they needed each other.  Would they be able to work out their differences? 
     Come and see what happens when the town tries to help but ends up causing problems.  Mas has old hurts from past relationships to get over in order to make it work. 
I give this 5 stars.  Provided by netgalley.com
