Summary

Like his parents Andy and Laura Friessen, Gabriel knows what it means to face an impossible situation. When he puts up an ad looking for a roommate, he never expects to meet a down-on-her-luck gorgeous single mom with a meddling family, a crazy ex-boyfriend, and enough chemistry between them to heat a county. The only problem is she doesn’t believe in happily-ever-after and sees falling in love as a mistake only fools make. But Gabriel can’t stop thinking about her, wanting her, and is determined to show her the road to love isn’t as dangerous as she believes.

Heartwarming Story

I love the stories of the Friessen and this one was no exception. It draws you in right from the start and kept me so interested I never wants to turn it off.

Sweet, yet hot story about young love.

The Friessens books are full of alpha male heroes coming to the aid of down-on-their-luck women and I really enjoy reading and/or listening to the stories. The First Time I Saw You is about Gabriel, Andy and Laura's son. He rents a room in his house to Elizabeth and her daughter, Shaunty. When he finds out that Elizabeth's ex is bothering her he begins to feel very protective even though they've only just met.

Reader's who don't care for insta-love type stories may not like this one but I know real-life couples who fell in love in less than a week and remained married until one of them passed away so this kind of story doesn't bother me at all.

This is the third book I've listened to performed by Lili Dubuque and I really loved listening to her voice. Her smooth, lilting tones were very soothing and calming and helped make the time I had to spend doing chores must less tedious.

All of the books in The Friessens series are great romantic stories and this one is no exception. I look forward to reading more books in this series.

I received a free Audible code from the author but this review was voluntary and not influenced by the free gift.
