"FIRST LOVE is the second book in the Angelfire Trilogy, and after reading the first book I couldn't wait to begin this one. I wasn't disappointed. Karen Wiesner has a way of bringing characters to life. With her evocative and to-the-point description, I instantly felt that I knew both Darlene and Jace personally, that I had seen them grow up and knew every step in their lives that brought them to the course of events in the story....on the first page I already had a sense of both Darlene's present and her past. The writing continues throughout the book in that same compelling style which kept me turning pages, only coming out of it to get a fresh can of soda now and then. Karen Wiesner has delivered yet another winner in FIRST LOVE!"

"This book is another classic Karen Wiesner. She took some vaguely-connected people from the same hometown and expanded on the series in a fabulous continuation. You could read this book as a stand-alone, but why would you want to? These characters were impressively written. Their multi-faceted personalities gripped my interest and never lost their pull on my heartstrings. These two main characters were so believable. It was as if I was there watching the interactions in person. I didn't want to put the book down.

This book had emotional consequences and just expanded my interest in Wiesner. She completes her books so well she is definitely on my "must-read" list. The secondary characters were introduced to the readers so that I wanted to know them even better. I couldn't help
but love them. I highly recommend this book to everyone.

The sensuality was slight and well-written. This book is complex and, in my opinion, one of her best. Kudos, Karen!"

Score: 4.50 / 5 - Reviewer Top Pick

Darlene Foxx is so lost right now, being pregnant and alone in New York City, that when a blast from the past comes through her front door she could weep with relief. But when Jason “Jace” Radcliffe comes back into her life her heartbreak is slowly trailing behind him. The scars from Darlene’s past keep making it almost impossible to believe that Jace is here for positive reasons, or that he loves her the way she has loved him since the first time they laid eyes on each other. Jace says he has changed and Darlene so desperately wants to believe him, will he stay this time or will he just follow the wind again when the restlessness sets in? With the baby coming fast, Darlene needs assurances that either Jace is in for the long haul or heading for the door, permanently. Can she listen to her heart this time?

Jace was beyond shocked to find out Darlene was pregnant, but not for the best reasons. The fact that it is another man’s baby never even entered his thoughts, just the idea that she can finally open up to him and to his love for her. Jace has been in love with Darlene since they first met at a tender age of eight years old. Restlessness has never been an issue for him, but he could only give so much to Darlene without getting anything back until he had to leave to keep his sanity. With her defenses weak, will Darlene finally let him in, because all he needs is one word from her and he would be there forever with her? But how long is a man supposed to wait to hear the one thing he needs from the woman he loves, or are these two too damaged to make a true go of it?

This is the second book in the Angelfire Trilogy Series, and after reading the first book this book was an amazing follow up to the first story. The first story was about Aurora Mason, Brett Foxx and Nathan Jovanovich. These characters are mentioned again in First Love, especially since Brett is Darlene’s older brother and Jace is Nathan’s brother in law. While both Darlene and Jace were mentioned in the first book this is the story that really lets them shine. Usually when it comes to trilogies the second book is just filler between the beginning and end stories, but that is definitely not the case here. This was a great story that was extremely enjoyable to read, the characters were very developed-almost seemed like people you would meet on the street-and the plot line was wonderful. This is a story that I will definitely read again and cannot wait to get to read the third and final book in this series. Anyone thinking of picking up this series should just not think about it and do it, you will not be disappointed!!

4 Stars!

In this story, both Darlene and Jace have major emotional turmoil. The main trouble between them is Darlene's feelings of being unworthy and her refusal to tell Jace how she feels. I simply could not understand Darlene's stubbornness until she finally told Jace how life with her parents had been. The author clearly shows how vital communication is in a relationship. Though this is the second title in the Angelfire Trilogy, it is a stand-alone story. You do not have to read any other title to enjoy the tale. If you are searching for a light romance, something perfect to take with you on vacation, then this is it. I loved every minute with Darlene and Jace.

4 Stars! “This is a heartwarming story. Author Karen Wiesner does an excellent job of combining love and lust in this book without the need for scenes that are too graphic. She has a wonderful grasp of the emotions a woman feels about the man that she wants but is afraid she shouldn't have. The scenes were intimate in that the characters bared their souls and thoughts to one another. I really enjoyed this book. I don't read books in the Romance genre, but this book was a pleasant surprise and may interest me in pursuing other titles by this author.” ~Lori M for Readers Favorite
