It was fun to see everybody all together again... And to remember their stories. Meanwhile, following along witha new couple. Dirty scrabble still makes me laugh!

This book was a sweet romance for Ben and Laney. Ben moves back to Whitford to be a paramedic . Laney moves there to take a seasonal job after a divorce . There was an immediate attraction between the two. The struggles to the two are going through make for a great story. Love the whole clan and reading of their camping trips together .

I always love camping with the Kowalski family and in What It Takes by Shannon Stacey, it was great fun to see it from an outsider’s view. Laney is the newest heroine of the series, recently hired by the Northern Star Lodge to help out around the new campground and assist Rosie in taking care of the lodge. She is also fresh off a divorce and trying to find herself this summer. Ben, the local paramedic and best friends to Sean Kowalski (Yours To Keep) ends up spending a lot of time around the campground and lodge this summer. While the romance between Laney and Ben was not my favorite of the series, it’s was still an entertaining read and fantastic by contemporary romance standards. This romance starts out slowly and while the book moves along at a great pace, I was frustrated with Laney putting the breaks on the relationship so much. I adored Ben and how he handled it though. He is so easy going and every woman’s dream really. Stacey does a nice job writing an original romance in the midst of the annual Kowalski family camping trip. While Ben and Laney could have easily been overshadowed by the Kowalski reunion, that didn’t happen. In this story, we are also treated to a side story between Sean and Emma and their current challenge in their marriage. It’s amazing how a simple worry can cause such an emotional pull. Stacey does a fantastic job bringing all the Kowalskis back together and giving the reader to catch up with them all a little. Complete with lots of doom, post it notes, and dirty scrabble! It was so much fun! What It Takes is a great story to extend the Kowalski family stories for all those that love them. If you are new to the series, this is a fun one that will have you falling in love with the family and will make you want to go back to the very beginning of the series. It’s is a story filled with everything we love in a contemporary romance – love, family, friends, kids, sexy scenes, camping, and ATVs. Pick up your copy now, but be warned, once you start, it will be hard to put it down until the every end.

When I found out there was a Kowalski Family reunion book coming out I was doing cartwheels (well in my head anyway)!! I'm happy to say that Shannon Stacey did not disappoint! This is truly one of my favorite fictional families and catching up with all the characters I love was incredible. Add to that a fantastic romance between town newcomer Laney Caswell and returning local boy Ben Rivers and I was one happy reader with this one. If you haven't read the Kowalski series yet do yourself a favor and do it! If you have, you'll enjoy this one as much as I did. I definitely recommend this one either way.
