Bar owner Kevin Kowalski is used to women throwing their phone numbers at him, but lately he's more interested in finding a woman to settle down with. A woman like Beth Hansen. If only their first meeting hadn't gone so badly...
Beth's tending bar at a wedding when she comes face-to-face with a tuxedo-clad man she never thought she'd see again. She keeps her distance from Kevin but, by last call, she can't say no to his too-blue eyes or the invitation back to his room. She slips out before breakfast without leaving a note and, despite their precautions, pregnant.
Kevin quickly warms to the idea of being a dad and to seeing where things go with Beth. After all, he's not the player she thinks he is. But she's not ready for a relationship and, given his reputation, it's going to take a lot to convince her to go on a second date with the father of her child...

As the second installment of the Kowalski Family Series, UNDENIABLY YOURS was an immensely fun read about how your life can change forever with the actions of one night, but as Kevin Kowalski shows us, that doesn't have to be a bad thing.
Kevin Kowalski has been warming his bed with one-night stands since his divorce. The bar owner is now hoping to get a girl he can have something more long-term with. He wouldn't have minded finding something with Beth Hansen, but she's a little mad at him for making her lose her job.
Beth has a new job tending bar at receptions when she just happens to be working at Kevin's brother Joe's wedding. Seeing Kevin in a tux does crazy things to her libido, and although she tries to stay away from him, she ends up going back to his hotel room. They have a night of wild passion, but a misunderstanding in the morning has Beth slipping out of the room without a word.
However, a month later, Beth comes to Kevin with a surprise from their one-night tryst...a baby. Kevin's not all that adverse to the idea of Beth having his baby, in fact, he'd love to see more of his soon-to-be baby's mom. Maybe even forever. But convincing Beth is going to be the hard part.
Ok, I have to say my most favorite thing about this whole book was Kevin Kowalski! He was absolutely so fantastic throughout this entire book that it made him even more drool-worthy. From the time that Beth told him that he was going to be a father until the end of the book, he was a stand-up guy who was willing to do whatever he had to in order to take care of his surprise family. The unbelievable sweetness and unconditional caring he had for Beth was absolutely amazing, and he made the book for me.
Now, Beth on the other hand made me roll my eyes more than a few times. I understand the sacrifices she was making to have the baby--the way that her life was being turned upside down. Believe me, I absolutely do. But at some point, I feel like she needed to get over herself and understand that EVERYONE's life was changing with the baby, and she needed to stop being so selfish about it. She did turn around in the end, but it really took a long time.
Besides the characters, the plot and dialogue were not only great but very realistic. There were plenty of laugh out loud moments as well as naughty gigglesespecially about chocolate cake. I loved the way the book progressed. And while nothing was easy about their relationship, I felt that the way it developed was the way it should have been considering the people involved.
Also, I'd be remiss if I didn't talk about the entire Kowalski family. They are an absolute hoot. With their "Wedding Pictures of Doom" and the way they just surround those they care about with support, I think they are just a family you can't help but love. I look forward to reading more about them.
So, UNDENIABLY YOURS is a great story with lively characters, realistic plot, and funny dialogue. It was one of those books that you look up at the clock and realize you've been reading for hours. I have been thoroughly enjoying this Kowalski family series, and I can't wait for the next installment.
