First Light by Isabel Jolie is now live!
He could be my savior…or my downfall…
I am living a lie.
No one knows who I really am. Letting someone in could be devastating for my family.
For the most part, isolation isn’t a hardship. I haven’t been looking for love or any kind of serious relationship.
But then I met Logan.
I tried to keep my distance. He won’t let me.
Logan is gentle, kind, and loving. Everything I never knew I needed in my life.
He’s also a cop—exactly the kind of man who’d never understand my truth.
So, while he has shared his deepest, darkest secrets, I keep mine hidden.
Too bad I can’t keep my heart locked away, too.
Because now I’m falling for a man who can never be mine. Not truly, anyway.
How can I ask him to be my future when I can’t even let him help me survive my present?
MY REVIEW – 4 stars
An enjoyable read with a bit of suspense, a few steamy scenes, and some heartbreak.
First Light starts out a bit slow as the author sets the scene. I enjoyed the town of Haven Island, even if I did find the neighbor, Poppy, to be a bit too bright and bubbly. There was just enough interaction with the secondary characters to add a bit of depth to the story. The main characters had an instant attraction to one another, even though neither seemed inclined to act on it. The sexy police officer isn’t sure he’s ready to date again, and Cali is hiding a big secret. I loved the interactions between the two, and Cali’s dog Nym was all kinds of awesome. My heart broke for the couple when Cali’s secrets came to light, and I worried for a moment they wouldn’t get their happily-ever-after. I did find Cali’s character to be entirely too naive when it came to her brother, and Officer Logan let her get away far too often without answering his questions. While I understand the necessity for both, those parts came across as a bit too unbelievable for me – even for fiction.
