I really enjoyed this book--and I was glad to know ahead of time that it was the first book in the series! The main characters, Reese and Josh, are front and center the focus of this book; but Reese's friends and relatives also come in for their share of the action--hopefully setting the stage for the next books in the series. I certainly hope so, because I would like to see Nikki and Julia receive their own Happily Ever After.
The characters are very well drawn--multi-layered and complex even in such a short book. There were times I wanted to take Reese and shake her, because she tended to lose her temper and fly off the handle way too easily. Unfortunately, I've known people like that in real life, too, so she definitely felt real. Josh---well, what can I say about Josh except swoon. He was almost too good to be true, but that's okay! :-)We'll take more men like Josh!
Kudos to Ms. Esdon for a quick, entertaining read and I'm looking forward to reading the next books in the series.
