Kink Level- None
Series- Kowalski #4
Reviewed by Anne
I love Shannon Stacey’s Kowalski series and this is another solid entry. Mitch Kowalski returns to the small town he grew up in. His younger brother, who manages the family inn, broke his leg and needs some help. On his way back in the town he sees the diner has been reopened and stops by and meets Paige, the new owner. He isn’t thrilled to be back in his small home town where everyone knows everything he ever did. He’s attracted to Paige and hoping she’ll be interested in a no strings attached fling.
Paige is immediately attracted to Mitch, but she’s not ready to break her man-fast. However, she’s heard ALL the rumors about Mitch. All the women he’s left behind. All the very satisfied women. None of them are unhappy. As he pursues her, she starts to think maybe it wouldn’t be so bad to be one of those women. She’s not looking for a relationship, but that means Mitch is just the right man for her.
I love low conflict contemporary. No one is trying to kill someone else. There’s no villain. It’s just two people finding their way to be together. Paige and Mitch were a lot of fun. The other inhabitants of the small town provided for a lot of humor. My favorite thing throughout this book was meeting all the women Mitch had been with and hearing what local legend it had sparked.
The book does a nice job setting up the sequels. I can’t wait!
