Summary

Overwhelmed by the neighborly attentions of the cheerful and vivacious “girl next door,” a man burned by love finds his passions reigniting in #1 New York Times bestselling author Nora Roberts’s First Impressions.

Entrepreneur Vance Banning took a residence in rural Maryland to escape business pressures—and relationships with women pursuing his bank account. To the community, he’s a moody, out-of-work carpenter with a chip on his shoulder. To next door neighbor Shane Abbott, he’s just a man who needs a little kindness in his life. Vance’s suspicions of the stunning beauty’s intense interest in him start to fade when he realizes Shane’s compassion is honest and joyful—giving his heart permission to experience true love.

Awful narrator

The book is obviously an early work and therefore nothing special. But the narration is simply awful.

Poor character development and trigger warning

There really was very little thought into the character development of this book. He is burned by love, yet jumps straight into kissing her. On top of that, one scene borders on an attempt at r**e with her saying no multiple times and him just carting her off to bed (somehow she magically changed into thinking that was funny). This is the point at which I stopped the book as I felt it was too inappropriate.
