Intrigued By First Sight by Erin Miller

Freshman, Honey Elizabeth, is studying Child Study, she is determined to do well and to become a teacher. Honey lives with her best friend Jean in apartment neither woman can really afford.

Jackie Miller is a freshman and she has her sights set on being a Police Officer. She meets Honey in a composition class. For Jackie, the world spins. Jackie knows right away that Honey is ‘the one’. The one who will change her life forever. The one she wants to spend the rest of her life with. Jackie has never felt this way about any one before. But will she persuade Honey to go out on a date with her? The answer is yes. Honey and Jackie embark on the first stage of their ‘together forever’ journey.

But to be able to stay together, Jackie has to let go of her past. A past that has been filled with sadness and violence. Will she be able to? Although madly in love with Jackie, will Honey be able to accept Jackie’s turbulent and violent past?

This book is set a few years in to the future. I’m not sure that’s it’s quite far enough though for the story to be believable. But as the book is purely fiction and if you are not looking for a ‘true to reality’ book, I believe you will really enjoy the storyline.

There is a lot packed in to this book. Adventure, red hot steaming romance, jealousy, stalking, kidnapping, twists, turns and ups and downs all the way through, keeping the reader frantically turning the pages to find out what happens next.

Honey and Jackie are both loveable characters and easy to get to know. They are backed up by a strong cast of supporting characters, some nice and some you just love to hate. All are essential in progressing the story forward to it’s untimely ending. I say untimely, because I didn’t expect the book to end so soon and I wanted more. The ending has left an opening for a sequel, which according to the blurb at the back of the book, is in hand.

Just one point I would like to make, there are a few typos and grammatical errors. They were not enough to detract from the story, but I know this will bother some readers.

I’m looking forward to reading more from Erin Miller in the future.
