First Light (Project Five Fifteen #1)What do you do when you've always dreamed of a hero; your knight in shining armour, only to find when he arrives he isn't a hero at all? ... He's a killer.
Ronnie Rose is trying to cope with the loss of her father; now it looks like she might lose everything else that's dear to her too. Huge debts threaten to destroy her family, her childhood home and her future. Only one person cuts through her pain. Kalen Smith has just moved to town. He's trouble and everyone knows it. He and his mysterious friends keep to themselves and the town likes it that way. But when 

Kalen mourns at her dad's funeral, Ronnie wants to know why and her investigation plunges her into a dangerous world of murky government secrets, with deadly consequences. Ronnie knows she should walk away from Kalen before it's too late. Problem is, she's falling for him...
Can we choose who we fall in love with?
The summary for First Light immediately drew me in, especially with the mystery it seemed to suggest. Although the love interest didn't appeal to me, I loved all the action and suspense.

The main character, Ronnie, has just recently had her dad pass away. At his funeral, a mysterious guy shows up. As she gets to know him, she discovers there’s more to him that she ever expected.

I didn’t like the romance too much. Kalen definitely had the whole mysterious bad boy thing going, but nothing about him drew me in. Also, Ronnie is pretty much immediately attracted to Kalen and although things didn’t go that smoothly for them, they moved super quickly in their relationship. 

I liked Ronnie as a character. She was a great lead! Unfortunately, I felt she was over dependent on Kalen and I didn’t like how easily her emotions were swayed because of him. There were certain decisions she made in the middle of the book that I didn’t agree with it. 

The plot was very suspenseful and enjoyable. I didn’t expect the secret surrounding Kalen to be what it was and it definitely wasn’t cliche at all. It was a very unique idea, and I liked reading about all the developments that came out of it. 

Overall, First Light is a great start to a series that I’m looking forward to continuing. I’d give it 3 1/2 out of 5 flowers :)

  1. I haven't seen this book before but yes the mystery in the review sounds really appealing. Too bad you didn't like the romance. Great review :)

  2. Glad you enjoyed it! It sounds like an exciting read--I'm a sucker for suspense! ;)

  3. Hmmm. While I love a mysterious bad boy, I don't love that their relationship moves so fast. I love a relationship with a lot of that "will they or won't they" tension, so when things progress quickly, I lose a bit of interest. I'm finicky with my romance apparently:) I'm looking forward to see if Ronnie stands on her own two feet a bit more in book two rather than depending on Kalen, so I'll be on the lookout for your review of that one!

    1. I'm definitely hoping she'll be a stronger character :)

  4. Aw, sorry the romance didn't do it for you. THe suspense sounds good though and glad you enjoyed that.
