Book review: Love a Little Sideways (Kowalski Family #7) by Shannon Stacey
Liz Kowalski is heading home to Whitford, Maine—this time for good. Eager for her family, a fresh start and some fun, she doesn't count on being rescued by the chief of police her very first night back in town. Drew is everything she's not looking for…so why is she still so attracted to him?
After a brief, forbidden rendezvous at her brother's wedding, Drew Miller expects Liz to return to New Mexico and stay there. He's searching for someone to settle down with, not a casual fling with his best friend's sister. But when they're stuck together on the annual Kowalski camping trip, things start going a little sideways. Keeping their hands off each other proves just as impossible as keeping their secret from becoming public knowledge.
Amid family, mud and melted marshmallow, Liz and Drew try to fight what's growing between them. But a little time alone, a lot of chemistry and too many opinions might be just what it takes to bring together two people so determined not to fall in love.
I was pretty anxious to read Liz Kowalski's story for me she was a bit of a mystery. Never really read much about her. Of course that intrigues a person. lol Liz has finally decided to move back home for good. She's dumped her lazy going no where boyfriend and is looking to start anew. Doesn't take long for her to get herself on Facebook when she has to be rescued by the town's sheriff Drew Miller when she crashes her car on the way into town. Drew and Liz had a little run in affair at Liz's brothers wedding months before and didn't expect to see each other again but sparks fly right from the start. Big problem is Liz and Drew think they are both looking for different things from life right now and even possibly bigger Drew is Liz's older brothers best friend. You don't pouch on a friends baby sister right? Things get sticky when the two of them being forced to go on a big Kowalski camping trip. Hard to keep things a secret in the midst of something as big and boisterous as this. This was a fun book. I enjoyed all the by play from all the Kowalski's but i thought Liz was just a bit immature and Drew was taking things a little to fast. Every now and then it was a little annoying but over all i enjoyed it. I can't imagine going on a camping trip with that big a group without gaining a few grey hairs but it's fun to read about it. Shannon Stacey knows how to keep it all straight thank goodness. The Kowalksi's are a big rowdy bunch. I think the first few book of this series are still my favorites.
