Review - My First by Melanie Shawn

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.


This was a good book. I loved the idea of best friends falling in love! That is what drew me to this book to begin with. I thought the two characters were very well written and I enjoyed reading about them. The hero, Jason Sloan was super hot! I liked the character of Jason the best. He seemed so sweet and caring. I didn't care too much for the Heroine, Katie Lawson. She was too immature in my opinion.

There were a few things that I didn't care about in this book. The first thing that I didn't like was that the heroine, Katie seemed soo whiny! She was also soo excited about everything. There were too many capitalized words in this book. That was weird.

I also didn't like the fact that Katie called her friend Sophie Sophiebell for the first half of the book. It seemed very childish. Then all of a sudden she wasn't calling her Sophiebell, just Sophie for the rest of the book. Stick with one name and go with it for the rest of the book!

The last thing that I didn't like about this book was the fact that the timeline of the story was so short. The book was set in four days and everything seemed to happen so quickly. I think it would have made more sense for the first four days to happen and then have the heroine decide to stay for a while longer and then have the rest of the story play out over the next few weeks. That would have made it seem more plausible.

Overall it was a good book. It was a great summer read. The storyline had some problems, but nothing that stopped me from finishing the book. I would recommend this to someone looking for a quick read. I am interested in reading more books in this series.
