Ben Belliston did not have a great childhood. His father was an abusive alcoholic and his mother was the punching bag. She refused to leave his father and Ben had no choice but to deal with the abuse. With role models like his parents, he refuses to ever get married or have a family. He will not take a chance of ever turning out like his father. Little did he know that one phone call would change his life forever. When his niece, Felicia, comes to live with him after her mother's death, he has no choice but to turn to Maddie for help.
Will these two ever realize how perfect they are together? Or will the past and their pride ruin what could be the best thing to ever happen to all of them?
First Crush was a fun addition to the In the Garden series! I loved seeing all the characters from Hello Again! And the addition of little Felicia was perfect! I have actually been on a single parent finding love kick lately and this book did not disappoint! There is just something about little kids pulling at the heart strings of big alpha males that just melts my heart! I love it!
Heather Tullis has become an auto-buy author for me! She has a way of sucking me into her books and not letting me go until the end! I am definitely looking forward to the next book in the series! If you haven't read anything by her yet then you are missing out! I highly recommend this series as well as the DiCarlo Bride series. So fun! :)
This book follows "Hello Again" (Book 1 of In the Garden) and it's not necessary to read the books in order if you happened upon this one first. The first one does give background on getting the location for the garden secured and the fun and problems that entailed, but if you missed it you can totally enjoy Maddie's story. But of course, you should go back and read "Hello Again" because it is fantastic.
I'm also a teacher so I could really feel Maddie's love for the garden and her students and the heart that she put into the project hoping that it would be a success. The push-back from the gang had me captivated and I knew in my heart that the good would overtake evil (that's what we all hope for) but the tension kept me on my toes.
Ben is a little clueless at first when it comes to Maddie and accepting help to care for his niece Felicia. The eight-year old moves in with him at the beginning after her mother dies and Ben becomes her guardian and he has to shuffle his bachelor life around to become her full time guardian as well as deal with some unexpected challenges that pop up out of the blue.
Ben and Maddie have been friends for years, well been in each other's lives for years because Ben is best friends with Maddie's brother Jason. I enjoyed their relationship and seeing them fall in love with each other.
I love series because I can get more involved with characters and you feel my addiction :o)
I'm already totally looking forward to seeing Jason & Adelyn and Comfry and ????
Maddie is a fun girl who's been pinning for Ben for way too long. When Felicia joins her class she is so sweet to her and Ben. I loved learning more about the green house project. She has some spunk for sure I loved when she finally told Bed don't you ever wonder... great writing!
I loved this story overall. I was so impatient for things to be wrapped up in the end. Love this series.
Little Felicia is adorable and I love how Ben really steps up and takes seriously his role of father and protector,
Really great hills and valleys in their journey - but a wonderful resolution.
I love Heather Tullis and am a great fan of the Di Carlo series - so I am loving this new "neighbourhood".
