Thanks to the publisher & Netgalley for the complimentary ARC. All opinions provided are my own.
It’s been about a month since I read & reel-ed about Kate Clayborn’s Love at First & its shine has not diminished. I LOVE THIS BOOK, its leads, its small moments of care that also feel like big moments of care, how it made me feel.
This is a true stunner & I highly highly recommend it & her other works if you haven’t read it yet.
As a teen Will Sterling first hears & sees the girl he later realizes to be Nora Clarke standing on a balcony of an apartment in Chicago. Before he can see hi his life is blown off its hinges & he doesn’t see her again for years & years.
Doesn’t recognize it’s her until he also realizes they’re on opposite sides of a battle to determine the future of the apartment building they’ve both inherited parts of. In essence, as the book makes it clear, the apartment building is a source of joyful memories for her & the most painful for him.
THIS BOOK IS SO SPECIAL & now I’m just going to throw some moments out there I love in an effort to entice you to read it if you haven’t already:
—It’s so sexy & tender. By the end of it my feelings (and my thoughts about life!) were so soft & loving.
—Some gentle enemies to lovers hijinx.
—Will wears glasses & Nora sometimes has to adjust them for him.
—Will’s use of the endearment “baby.” I L O V E how sweet it is & their mutual awareness of the fact that he used the word!
—She’s sick & he takes care of her. She takes care of him w/ her homemade spaghetti sauce.
—Nora says “well!” when someone does something discourteous while driving. (I think that’s adorable.)
—Will actually sometimes rubs his chest in emotional response to Nora. Ahhhh.
—There’s poetry, I LOLed in at least one moment, enough steam to fog up my glasses, & a freaking romantic declaration of love.
5 HUGE ⭐️ from this Kate Clayborn superfan. Love at First is available now.
Give me that HEA, please.
