Book Description

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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Hot, Sweet, Well Written Story August 29, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
This story is full of sweetness and lots of yum-yum action.

Meet Katie Lawson: an independent, powerful, San Francisco attorney with a tendency to get panic attacks. These panic attacks get even worse upon her return back `home' to Harper's Crossing; the town she fled ten years ago as a way to get away from some painful circumstances.

The second she gets home she comes face to face with the object of her pain and fears: Jason Sloan. Jason was her first (kinder garden) crush, her knight in shining armor, and the reason she left town. The guy is all kinds of sexy, and just his simple touch and scorching eyes are enough to send our little Katie to the edge of madness. Katie does her best to stay away from Jason, a task made even more difficult by the fact that they're the respective best-man and maid-of-honor at her friend's wedding.

The author does an amazing job at establishing great chemistry between these characters. She uses well-timed flashbacks to help us understand how their childhood love grew, and what obstacles and misunderstandings kept them apart over the years. It's easy to see, without a doubt, that Jason is absolutely crazy about Katie. As the story develops, we get to see that Katie has just been as crazy about him.

4.0 out of 5 stars Cute Summer read July 11, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
My First - Jason & Katie is a story about forgiving yourself and going after what you want. After leaving ten years ago, Katie Lawson is back home for her friend's wedding and forced to face her past and the reason she left. Jason Sloan has been in love Katie his whole life, and now that she's back he wont stop until she knows how he feels.

This is a great summer read! It's cute and sweet, but also gave the characters some depth that lets you connect with them and feel for them. I would suggest it to anyone who wants a cute, easy read. The only thing that wasn't so great is that the whole story takes place in just a few days, which means things have to be sped up quite a bit. Also, it's written in a third person narrative, which I don't usually like, but I didn't have a big problem with it this time. But overall, I liked it; it was good, not great, but I still enjoyed reading it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Sweet Story October 3, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This book had a nice story line regarding the reunion of two "friends." Overall the book tells the story of two friends who should have been so much more. There were times throughout the book that just seemed silly and you wanted to shake both characters and say "Get on with it already and say how you really feel!" But of course it seems to take forever for them to realize what they really mean to one another. It was a quick read and had some steamy encounters that made me have to hide my kindle from my kids while I was reading. I was definitely entertained and it held my attention throughout the book. I'll be reading the remaining books in this series.

3.0 out of 5 stars It was average.... good effort though.... July 20, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This book had me tearing my hair out a bit. I really liked Jason, but I didn't like Katie so much. She kept running away from her dealings with Jason much like a child would.

The storyline seemed a bit far-fetched too. Why wasn't Jason more mad at her for running away all those years ago? It just didn't seem plausible. They went from being best friends to nothing all in the space of a few minutes. I thought it was very cowardly of her.

Also a tip for the authors - no capital letters for emphasis please! There are far too many examples of this in the book. Put things in italics for emphasis. The caps kept screaming out at me and dragging me out of the story. Just my opinion anyway.

4.0 out of 5 stars Sweet Story February 23, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I really enjoyed this story! Katie Lawson return's home to Harper's Crossing after leaving suddenly 10 years prior. Upon her return to runs into Jason Sloan who was not only one of her best friends, but her deceased boyfriends best shirt. Jason and Katie have always had a chemistry that was fairly obvious, but with everything that happened in the past Katie refuses to face reality. While the two are forced to spend a ton of time while they are getting ready for a family wedding, many truths are revealed. I have to say I really love Melanie Shawn's writing style. I fell in love with these characters. Not gonna lie I really want a follow up on Jason and Katie!!
