My First - Melanie Shawn || Review

Jason Sloan is known as Harper’s Crossing’s resident Romeo, and he’s never had to work too hard to live up to that nickname. With his easygoing charm, whiskey-colored brown eyes, and sinfully sexy half smile, women just seem to fall all over themselves when he’s around. Well...most women, anyway. Katie Lawson’s the one woman who isn't putty in his hands, and she's the only one he’s ever wanted in his arms. Katie Lawson left Harper's Crossing in the middle of the night ten years ago, immediately after her high school boyfriend Nick's funeral. She left behind all memories of Nick, and she left behind her life-long best friend, Jason Sloan. Now she's on the fast track to junior partner at one of San Francisco's top law firms. She's made a life for herself that's all about maintaining order and sticking to the rules. Rule #1 is keeping herself WAY too busy to think about all that she ran away from. If she can do that, after all, she can keep everything under control. But that rule is about to be broken. She’s headed back home to be the maid of honor in Nick’s little sister’s wedding. It's time to face the truth she's been avoiding all these years, the same one that sent her running ten years ago - that maybe she didn't lose her first love the summer after high school. Maybe her first love has been waiting for her all this time, at home in Harper's Crossing.



Review

When you have so many books on your tbr its always hard to pick what to read next, so i literally went to right near the end and opted for something that has sat for a while. I think i picked this up for free from amazon about 3 years ago now.

Katie fled Harpers Crossing 10 years ago after the funeral of her high school boyfriend, and every time she tried to return a panic attack kicked in and then thats that, another reason to not return. However when her best friend and Nicks little sister asks her to be maid of honour, she has to return - its only four days really. All she has to do, is try and make amends or if not, just be neutrel to Jason.

Jason is nicknamed Romeo, and his heart has always belonged to one. When he finds out she is returning, could things be fixed?  My First is a cute small town read about high school loves and real love. The characters were all well written, and it was a perfectly light read that filled the gap from a heavier romance i had just finished.

It took me a couple of hours, but in that time i felt i met alot of new people, discovered a new town and made plans to return. If you are after something that is light and sweet then this is the read for you.

Rating 3.5/5
