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.

    2.0 out of 5 stars Flat.. August 4, 2013
    Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
    I was looking forward to reading this purchase, the synopsis was very interesting and I love reading about reuniting love etc, but I found this novel fell flat. I could not get into the characters and their angst, I found myself skipping pages and skim read to the finish.

    The whole book was over 4 days, and yet everything is sooo drawn out. The plot got boring, the characters became dull esp Katie.

    2.0 out of 5 stars Disjointed and boring June 15, 2014
    By Marie
    Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
    I wanted to like it, I really did. But as others have mentioned, it was boring and repetitious. Ending rushed and came out of nowhere. Characters had no depth. Did not make me want to rest of the rest of the series.

    2.0 out of 5 stars Repetitive, boring book October 29, 2014
    By Briddle
    Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
    Personally, I didn't care for it. It seemed that the book pretty much just repeated the same thing over and over and over. Katie dated Nick when she was young and he died in an accident. Her BFF was Jason, who was secretly in love with her. Katie was pretty annoying. I got so tired of reading about the accident and how she felt. I get that people want the formula of girl loves guy, something bad happens, girl runs away, both pine over the lost love, then girl and boy get back together....ta da! HEA. But I couldn't get past the repetitiveness and how much of a wuss Katie was. I started skimming just to get to parts where Katie and Jason actually spoke to each other for more than one line. Storyline just didn't pull me in. Sorry :(

    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.
