    6. I m sure that this novel will be fine for most of my GR friends that many of my GR friends may actually enjoy it I, HOWEVER, spent 3 4 of this book curled up in the fetal position I was so incredibly devastated incensed by the way in which the heroine Lorelei was treated by the vast majority of society Lorelei never stood a chance against this small town a town that had prejudged her WHILE LORELEI WAS STILL IN HER MOTHER S WOMB The narrow minded hypercritical people inhabiting this town took eac [...]

    7. 3.75awwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwThis was a super cute, sweet, heartwarming story I really enjoyed it, and even though the main character kind of made me want to slap some sense in to here wasn t altogether ridiculous Spencer I love him, and every time he said Darlin swoon There were a few things that I didn t think were altogether necessary to the story, and some of it was kind of weird and maybe a little unrealistic, but it was still a good story, and I really enjoyed it.

    11. Ahhhis book I borrowed it on Kindle It s truly a five star story that just didn t sit right with me It was adorable, cutesy, Sweet Home Alabama the movie with Reese Witherspoon type of tale Lorelei Spencer returns home years after she pretty much tells the town where they can stick it Needless to say, not everyone in town is happy she s back Her grandmother welcomes her back with open arms and a place to live until she can get back on her feet I think the other other soul who was truly happy she [...]

    12. I ve enjoyed Osburn s Anchor Island stories but this first book in her new small town series is a terrible disappointment The story is well written, but chock full of every truly ridiculous small town stereotype character and stock cliche known to man The h of the book, Lorelei, is supposed to be spunky Unfortunately, she comes across as alternately bitchy and pathetic Spencer deserves better.Although I m holding out some hope for the next book about Snow this one was a completely unoriginal, ho [...]

    20. All in all, I liked His First and Last, even though it was a bit of a shift to move from Anchor Island to Ardent Springs and start over with this series But by now I trust Terri Osburn enough to just run with it The story does start a little slow as we establish whom Lorelei and Spencer are and whats their story, and then it starts to build in layers But the author keeps Lorelei and Spencer in the center and actually takes the time to explain why Lorelei hates the town so much and kind of why Sp [...]

    21. His First and Last was a true second chance story This book was heavily layered with drama and tension on all sides Unfortunately, it was a thumbs up thumbs down book, in my opinion The characters were somewhat wooden and in some moments, they even came across as immature Several plot points did not seem to be fully flushed out, which frustrated me a bit With that said, I liked the story well enough to finish it The ending for the main characters was positive, and the author left a dangling thre [...]
