A great start to a new series by Kathryn Shay. Wow, six blond sisters in one family and they all get their own book. This is the story Of Paulina Ludzecky, who lost her husband tragically three years ago and is ready to move on in life, she thinks. She meets Adam Armstong , an architect, very rich. They are complete opposites, but the one thing they have in common is their attraction for each other.

The beginning of the story was a little confusing, but what big family is not confusing. Lots of people to meet right away. I really enjoyed how close the sisters are to each other. It was great to see Paulina, work through her grief and begin to live again, she married very young.

I highly recommend this book to all readers that love romance and family saga. I am now off to read the next book, Primary Colors.

I was really looking forward to starting this series. Being introduced first to the brother when he was under cover I thought they would be at least interesting. The authors writing style however, is stilted and just doesn't flow well. I had forgotten that and didn't remember until I was about 3 chapters in. First let me say that my husband is an Architect and Attorney and as such I am well versed in the personalities of most Architects. They are kind of like Engineers, a different breed altogether and Ms. Shay did not get the personality down at all. I think that if u are going to write this stuff get as close to the truth as u can. Second, as much as I liked the Ludzeckey family when first introduced I didn't like them much in this one. They were depressing and I found the fact that they were all living together kind of creepy after 3 years. Being there for your family is one thing but living together is just not a mentally healthy situation. It allows for them to wallow in their combined misery so it's no wonder they haven't made any effort to move past their combined tragedy. I also didn't believe that Paulie was the type of person to enter into a sexual affair with no intentions of anything else. Maybe if she had been a former party girl before her marriage but the fact that she had only been with her deceased husband does not lend itself to this type of behavior. Her twin Nia came off as a controlling B word who REFUSED to move on, not as someone who wanted to and just couldn't. All in all I was disappointed in this and I won't be reading any more of them. This book came off as something that needed more editing as well. Lots of stops and starts and skipping to the next scene without any flow.

I really enjoyed Paulina and Adam's story! I have several of Kathryn Shay's books, and I've loved every one of them! Paulina and Adam are so good together! Paulina is widowed with young children. Adam and Paulina are introduced to each other when they begin working on a job together. They are instantly attracted to each other, but Paulina agrees to a relationship with Adam only if the relationship stays outside her family life which Adam agrees to. Although the relationship develops into something a little more than what Paulina thought it would, she is still reluctant to let her young children know about. As the story goes on, the two people develop feelings for each other. I enjoyed how the story played out. I loved the closs family ties Paulina had with her sister and mother which helped her with her decisions she had to make. Highly recommend this romance!

It was an okay read. Found myself skipping through the pages. Story did not hold my interest like the O'Neils series.

First book in the Ludzecky sisters series

Twin sisters Nia and Pauline Pettrone lost both of their husbands in an accident three
years ago and now Pauline is dating again because of Adam Armstrong, an architect
that she meets in a job that her contracting business is doing. She just wants to have
some fun and is not looking for anything serious, but what happens when things
change between them? Must read

Typos

should be up with the rest of the paragraph

Location 590 - "Really? You started it!" - the sentence should be separate from the previous
paragraph

(Has previews and summaries from the rest of the books in the series

(Adults 18+ only for sensual scenes)

The beginning of the story was a little confusing to me, but what big family is not confusing. There were lots of people to meet right away. I did love the playfulness between Adam and Paulie, though. They seemed to get along about everything, except Paulie couldn't get over the difference in their life status, which if you really and truly love someone...it really shouldn't matter.

I thought the ending was a little too abrupt, too. I know this is just the first book in the series, but what's wrong with adding a short epilogue at the end, rather than leaving the reader's wondering if things actually turned out for these two?

I was really taken by the title of this book because my favorite song has the same title. I expected the story to be good from reading the summary. But I was surprised to find that it was not great. I am all for the power of starting over and finding happiness again. But the author does not have this down in this book. I get that fiction is about fantasy sometimes, but if you are writing about something in detail I think it is important to research it thoroughly. It’s like watching a TV show where they are all about business but they miss all the real world business principles. The story does achieve what it set out to, but it is so badly written that it was a drag to read; but I read on because I finish what I start.
