Review: First String


Steamy romance with a little bit of funny thrown in! If you like Bridget Jones, you’ll love Hope Cruz.

Six months ago, Hope’s childhood-sweetheart-turned husband Matt left her for a grad student. Worried her daughter is seriously depressed—she won’t even pick up her guitar!—Hope’s meddling mother insists she see a therapist, and Hope’s shocked when the therapist suggests she have a wild affair.

After being with one man her entire life.

And she needs to do everything differently—find a new hobby, mix up the routine, get a little adventurous. She has to figure out what she wants out of life without Matt in it.

Hope’s in for a wild ride.

As soon as I saw the Bridget Jones comparison in the blurb, I knew First String was exactly the kind of book I was in the mood for this week. Believe me, the cover for this one doesn’t do the story inside justice! This was a quick read, but it made me laugh more than once, and I fell totally in love with the story and with Hope, along with her family.

This is the story of a woman whose life gets completely flipped on its head, but it turns out these things that at first looked like disasters may have been exactly what Hope needed.

I can’t wait to read the next one!
