Days after releasing this statement, the whole band appeared for a broadcasted interview with Tom Tilley on his radio show Hack run out of Triple J, a prominent national radio station. Can you explain to me why that is? Frost: I guess I am not that good in interviews, you know? In the past… you know… my violence in my past under the influence, I guess boys will be boys, you know? I promote peace and love. Frost: I do, mate. I really do. I just find it hard to talk about this stuff. By this point, Frost and the Sticky Fingers have been chastised by the public, undergone rehabilitation, relapsed, and tried to change again.
They failed to hold onto lovers, and at times, struggled to pieces together themselves. It is hard to say with any certainty if the many controversies that have plagued Sticky Fingers are indeed true. But what is true is that till the end of , STIFI were one of the biggest music sensations to come out of Australia, until suddenly, that fame and adoration were whisked away in a cloud of public scrutiny.
Yours To Keep shows a band coming to grips with the lifestyle that has both bestowed stardom and cursed them with many inner demons. The band does not show same fire and spiciness that they did in previous albums, but the lyricism is sensational and their sounds continue to be flecked with many different genres and sounds that only they can produce. But what really takes the album over the edge is its emotional vulnerability.

They show that they are no longer reckless rockers, but older, more introspective musicians. Super cute romance, it made me laugh out loud. Shannon Stacey's writing voice is very New Hampshire-ish And I loved that the granny got a sweet romance, too. Grade: A- I wanted an extra chapter at the end! She has a raspy voice that lends well to the masculine voices, yet she still does a very nice job on the female ones, especially the not so dim-witted grandmother, Cat.
There is nothing of monumental complexity in this little love story. However, it is sweet, fun, and has another of those H. Sean has just left the Army after a tour in Afghanistan. I love this family, set in a small town in beautiful New Hampshire, and enjoy their banter. View 2 comments. It was melt-the-heart kind of good. Sean and Emma made a great couple. The romance felt believable, the heat was just right steamy! A great feel-good romance.
Apr 06, Karla rated it really liked it Shelves: sweet-romance , favorites , laugh-out-loud-funny , scrumptious-hero. I loved mixing it up again with the Kowalski's. Just a fun story, with a cute plot, a crazy, sweet h, Emma, and hot Kowalski, Sean. Some terrific dialogue, laugh out loud moments, and very sensual. My favorite part of the book was the inclusion of the Kowalski's from the previous books.
The family element just brought so much to the story. My only complaint I think it needed an epilogue. Especially since we have to wait until September for Mitch's book Apr 24, Angela James marked it as edited. I'll refrain from rating this, since I edited it :P You can extrapolate what I think of it it's awesome and the best Shannon Stacey book yet. View all 9 comments.

I had never read anything by Shannon Stacey before, but reading Yours to Keep made me want to check out her backlist and the other books in the Kowalski Family series. The thing I loved best was the humor; some parts had me laughing out loud and there was one particular scene Newlywed game anyone? Alwa A light and fun novella-ish romance that provides some great laughs 3. Always great when a book does that Yours to Keep what I would term "novella-ish," because while not as short as most novellas, at pages it is definitely shorter than most romances and one feels that in the relationship development.
Regardless, Stacey did a great job of making the romance believable in such a little number of pages. Both Emma and Sean are likable characters, though I do feel that we're given more insight and make more of a connection with Sean than we do with Emma. Compared to him, she seemed a little flatter and not as well-rounded or three-dimensional. I liked Sean's forthright personality, but loved how whenever he would stumble because he all of a sudden worried that Emma might get attached or misinterpret something, she would call him on it and make fun of him.
Throughout the book, he's a sweetheart and that final scene - ::grin Kind of thought that was coming, but was still super, super cute. The "pretend relationship" ploy can go either way for me, depending on how the author has the characters deal with it and how it impacts the development rate of their relationship. While there is instant attraction, they don't act on it for awhile and it is instead just the normal initial reaction one has towards a good-looking person. I greatly appreciated that Stacey did that, because I cannot stand the instant lust scenarios and rarely enjoy romances that have them.
That being said, the tension build-up between the two of them was well-done and I did think there was some nice sizzling chemistry. One of the greatest things about the book was the secondary characters. They provide a large number of laughs and the back and forth between everyone is fun to read.
I loved Emma's grandmother, who gets her own nice little romance. Because she's so great though, the whole reason that Emma has to invent the fiance ends up seeming very contrived and her nagging and worrying seems somewhat out of character. I had originally given it 4 stars and then read another CR right after it that made me knock this one down to 3. I think it's hard for it to compare to most other romances due to it's lack of length - by definition, it makes it so that there is less space for you to get to know the hero and heroine, for them to get to know one another, and for their relationship to believably develop.
That being said, for what it was I really enjoyed it and would highly recommend Yours to Keep when you're in need of a light, fun, and sweet romance. May 01, Elle rated it really liked it Shelves: sexy-subplot , family-series , light-beach-read. Me and this book had a fabulous time together. This is the first Shannon Stacey that I've finished and I absolutely loved the premise and how the plot progressed.
I didn't find that the family aspect in this book was too overbearing or gag worthy, which is a nice change from a lot of other books. Sure the premise is a bit ridiculous, but it's great that the plot plays out in a way that really highlights how ridiculous of a predicament the characters are in. I Love Love Loved this fun, quick Woooo! I Love Love Loved this fun, quick, relatively clean read. The pacing of the story was great and the subplot was written in a way that was just right! I'm thinking that fans of Shannon Stacey are going to love this instalment of the series.

Though this is my very first book by Ms. Stacey, I had no trouble identifying with the fact that she can deliver a fantastic romance, and this one definitely makes it into the list of my favorite reads for This book is going to follow the I-Review format which I introduced earlier and would follow a question and answer format which will hopefully do justice to the wonderful romance this deliver Yours to Keep is the 3rd book in the Kowalski Family series by the very talented Shannon Stacey.
This book is going to follow the I-Review format which I introduced earlier and would follow a question and answer format which will hopefully do justice to the wonderful romance this delivered - in spades. Question 1: What made you pick up Yours to Keep? I have always heard good things about Shannon Stacey though I have never had the opportunity to try out her work prior to this. You can always blame it on the hundreds of new books that find their way into my TBR pile sneaky things these books.
And this time when I found Yours to Keep up for grabs on Netgalley I didn't hesitate to procure a copy and here I am grinning from ear to ear and nearly purring in complete satisfaction at the end. And of course, fellow blogger Pearl's fantastic 5-star rating of the book helped things along as well. Question 2: Tell us a little bit about the hero Sean Kowalski. Sean Michael Kowalski finally returns home for good after having served the army for the past 12 years. With blue eyes and a smile that can do serious damage to a woman's insides, the one thing that Sean wants is to have the freedom for the first time in his life to do whatever he wants before even contemplating about settling down.
Question 3: Now tell us a little bit about the heroine Emma Shaw. The owner of Landscaping by Emma, Emma Shaw is an only child who was brought up her grandmother Catherine Shaw after the death of her parents at the age of 4. Emma has her roots tied down in New Hampshire, owns a business doing something that she loves and her only discontentment arises from the fact that her grandmother who finally managed to move to Florida still keeps on worrying about Emma. Whilst Emma doesn't see the harm in conjuring up an imaginary live in boyfriend to keep her grandmother placated, what she doesn't realize is the fact that it is indeed a tangled web one weaves when they intend to deceive.
State of Mind
Question 4: How does Sean and Emma meet for the first time? Sean and Emma's first meeting is a memorable one in the story. Though Sean thinks Emma to be tall, hot and batshit crazy in that very order, that doesn't stop him wanting to say yes to Emma's offer or prevent his body from hungering for hers in the worst way possible. Question 5: What was it that drew you into the story with Yours to Keep? Even though I have never sampled Shannon Stacey's work prior to this, I totally fell for her style of writing which drew me in right from the very beginning. I loved the concept of the story which was one of the reasons that had me saying Yes to Yours to Keep in the first place and it is the way that Ms.
Stacey pulls the right emotions from the reader at every turn that had me reading this in one sitting, something that rarely happens these days. Question 6: What was it that you liked about Yours to Keep? Throw in a hotter than sin ex-military hero whose vocabulary at the moment does not have any room for the word permanence in it, and a heroine who is his match in every way possible; call me fickle but I love the way two people who aren't looking for love find it in the last place they are looking for.
I loved a lot of things about this delectable contemporary starting from Sean who is definitely hot enough to melt any woman to a puddle of goo in mere seconds. His whole character starting from his sinfully good looks to the way he tries so hard to keep his desire in check where Emma is concerned made him a hero I enjoyed in every way possible. Emma is loyal and intense to Sean's laid-back attitude and the way that she is unafraid to grab whatever it is that is simmering between her and Sean made me root for her even more!
Sticky Fingers – Yours To Keep: Album Review
I loved all the side characters, some of whose stories of happily ever afters have already been told, lending Yours to Keep that extra edge which was why in the end it ended up in my list of favorite reads for The sexual tension between Emma and Sean was sizzling hot at all times, the combustive culmination of their surrender that much more sweeter because of the fact. And I absolutely fell in love with Sean the moment he started leaving little bits of notes for Emma all around the house and the final scenes in the story just made me want to bawl my eyes out - with happy tears. Question 7: What if anything would you want to change in Yours to Keep?
For me, Yours to Keep is just damn perfect as it is! Question 8: Who would you recommend Yours to Keep to? Fans of the Kowalski series should definitely read this one.
Its a keeper! And for fans of Shannon Stacey who haven't yet delved into the Kowalski world, you definitely ought to, even if it is with this one. Yes, it is that good! And for fans of contemporary romances, this one should definitely end up on your pile of books that MUST be read! I loved the notes that Sean kept leaving for Emma to find. One of my favorites comes from the list he gives her during the final moments in the story: You don't take any crap from me.
You make me laugh. Missionary is my favorite position now because I can see your face. View all 7 comments. Dec 12, Maggie rated it really liked it Recommended to Maggie by: Sarah. Shelves: , i-ve-just-read-you-and-i-love-you , crushworthy-guys , hot-sex-on-a-platter. Love means never having to say you're sorry. Love means a magic penis, a pink shirt, and Post-its! And yes, it is as awesome as it sounds. Like, to the point that Shannon Stacey has temporarily ruined other fictional men for me. Trust me, after you read this, Exclusively Yours , and Undeniably Yours , you'll have Kowalskis on the brain too.
Yours to Keep is the 3rd book in the series, and the first one I read. Thanks, Sarah! It centers on Sean Kowalski and Emma Shaw. Sean has just left the Love means never having to say you're sorry. Sean has just left the Army after 12 years and is keen to explore his new civilian life.
You already know where this is going, right? What pleasantly surprised me was how FUN it was getting there. And how HOT. Sean is tall, dark blond , and handsome. Not only is he well-mannered, but he also reads! He's Alexander Skarsgard post-Generation Kill. Emma is no shrinking violet either. She, according to Sean's first impression, is "tall, hot, and batshit crazy.
Both Sean and Emma are probably in their early 30s, but what one of the many things I love about this book is that age isn't a point of emphasis. It's a breath of fresh freakin' air to read about a single woman who isn't bemoaning her biological clock or her eggs. I personally believe that the word "ovaries" should be banished from all non-medical text.
Say "Fallopian" to me: What was I talking about before I started mentally slapping people? Oh right, Sean and Emma. I read this with a stupid grin on my face. I loved their chemistry and their cuteness. I loved watching them go from faking a real relationship to hiding a real relationship masquerading as a fake one.
This is the strongest of the 3 Kowalski books even though I'm partial to Kevin Kowalski in Undeniably Yours , and a fun read even if you're not a romance genre diehard. Do I need to show you Sean again? First of all, it was really unbelievable right from the beginning. I mean, most fake marriage romance tropes tend to be unbelievable, but some are better than others. I adored Emma, she was fun a quirky and did all of this because she loves her Grandmother so much that she was willing to do all this just to keep her happy.
Yes, Sean may have bit a bit sexist but underneath that, he was a good guy. I did like the book, and the writing a dialog was spot on as usual for Shannon Stacey. This is a really fun series, and a really fun family. I love visiting with them every time, and outside of the few issues I did have, it was highly entertaining and very, very spicy! Rating: 3. View 1 comment. I enjoyed it. I had no problems. The logic and rational worked for me. The couple ends up hot for each other and that worked for me.
The formulaic separation was reasonable. DATA: Narrative mode: 3rd person. Story length: pages. Swearing language: strong with religious swear words but rarely used. Sexual language: moderate to strong. Number of sex scenes: 4. Setting: current day New Hampshire. Copyright: Genre: contemporary romance. The first half is boring. The second half does pick up a bit. As for me I enjoy it if such a story is well done and entertaining. But this one just felt a bit May 16, Mandi Schreiner rated it really liked it Shelves: contemporary.
Favorite Quote: She snorted and looked out her window. Emma wants her Favorite Quote: She snorted and looked out her window. Emma wants her grandmother to be happy, and enjoy retired life and to stop worrying so much. So she makes a small white lie about dating, telling her grandmother she was dating and now engaged to Sean Kowlaski.
But now grandma is coming up for a month long visit. And it just so happens Sean is back home, out of the military. Yours to Keep is so darn adorable! Everyone in this book is so likable, but no one is too perfect. Although Emma is deceiving her grandmother by pretending to be engaged, she is really doing it for the right reasons.
What unfolds are two strangers, thrust into the same house, heck the same bedroom although Emma starts by sleeping on the couch next to the bed and they become friends. Their sporadic touches, or glances, even conversations are awkward and stilted at first.
Yours to Keep
Emma is a total ball of nerves that they are not going to be able to pull this off. Sean is a little more low key, and well — horny. So eventually, both of them bring their tense emotions together, and a very hot romance develops. There is a great mixture of sweet and funny moments in this book as well. He could do this. He could survive broccoli. Later that night, Sean put a sticky note on the bathroom mirror that said, I hate broccoli and peas.
This becomes a habit, little post it notes on the mirror. Sometimes they are more likes and dislikes, other times he leaves an encouraging note if Emma is having doubts about the charade. But Sean also has a gruff, rougher side to him. The end is just made of sweetness. For a cute, very enjoyable story, pick this one up!
Sean Kowalski is finally home from a year stint in the Army, most currently serving overseas in Afghanistan. Not ready to go to the family lodge in Maine, Sean makes a stop over in New Hampshire to visit his aunt, uncle, and cousins. To his surprise, he finds out that Emma Shaw considers Sean her "fake" finance, telling Grandma Shaw in Florida that Sean is living with her and helping take care of her large New England home.

Emma and best friend Lisa Kowalski made up her fake relationship to pacify Grandma Shaw's concerns over leaving Emma alone when she moved to Florida. Now Grandma is coming to visit for a month and Emma wants Sean to move in with her and pretend to be the fiance Grandma believes he is.
I cannot express how much I absolutely adored Yours to Keep and continue to enjoy the Kowalski family. I was a bit concerned that moving away from the original family after only two books would be too soon, but Ms. Stacey intergrates new-comer Sean perfectly into the Kowalski fold. Emma and Sean's story is utterly adorible and simply lovely. While the fake-fiance trope could have been silly, instead, the story was full of humor and heart. At times I was laughing uncontrollably at the antics of trying to keep the various secrets straight and in place.
The light-hearted humor and Kolwaski antics make this wonderful romance a perfect story. After getting over the initial shock of suddenly being with one another under false pretenses, Emma and Sean realize that they cannot hold back their mutual attraction. Of course, spending so much time together, coupled with indulging in some extracurricular benefits, the pair begin to fall in love, all the while ignoring and denying the obvious signs they are happy being a couple. The pace of their romance and the overall story is perfect, keeping my earbuds firmly planted in my ears.
I fell in love with the couple as they fell in love with one another. The side plot involving Emma's grandma, Kat, finding potential romance with old friend Russell is sweet and adds dimension to the overall story. The best side plot, however, is Aunt Mary and Kat coming together with their own, well-intentioned scheming. At more than one time I was laughing so hard, and it reminded me of my favorite Friends episode when Phoebe and Rachel figured out Monica and Chandler were secretly dating. While Yours to Keep is near perfect because of the building romance and side antics of the characters, what makes it one of my favorite books is that it also packs a powerful emotional punch.
As time grows short for Emma and Sean's faux engagement, my heart was on edge waiting for each to admit there was more between them than "pretend.
Once again Lauren Fortgang narrates a wonderful cast of characters, giving each his or her own voice. She hits all the right notes and I seriously can't imagine anyone else behind their rolls. When I started the book, I thought Yours to Keep might have been cliche, but I should have known better with Shannon Stacey penning the tale. Yours to Keep is sublime mix of sweet love, genuine humor, family antics, and most of all a beautiful romance. If you haven't checked out the Kowalski Family yet, I strongly recommend this delightful contemporary romance series.
Simply amazing. I marked this one as one of my favorites for the year before I was even half-way finished. Let me get this out of the way first - I loved this book so much that I started writing my review on sticky notes. She loves her grandmother to bits and wants her to be happy in her retirement to Florida but Grandma Cat worries about Emma managing her business and living in the big family home with all the responsibility all alone. It was a good plan Ahhhh the best laid plans Emma seemed perfectly sane, were his Kowalski cousins setting him up?
Where were the hidden cameras? I believed the set-up. The Kowalski siblings, their respective wives and children were up to their old tricks again They are one of the most enjoyable families to read about. Shannon Stacey brings them to life on the page and makes them seem like one big happy family anyone would be lucky to be a part of. Sean was a real trooper. Funny, charming, loyal and sexy. Sean choking down the broccoli during dinner when he detested the green vegetable was LOL funny and showed just how far he was prepared to go to play his part.
And now for the sticky notes. I loved how Sean used them to communicate his likes and dislikes on the bathroom mirror. And the final pink sticky note - broke my heart, got that lump in the back of my throat growing and made my eyes well up.
