What an awesome book. First we have Brooklyn assistant DA Micah Sanborn. Then we have wedding planner Tessa Whitfield who runs her business out of her town house. Filling in for his sister, Micah meets with Tessa to talk about his sisters wedding, but ends up stranded there all night in a citywide blackout...alongside the most intriguing woman he's ever met.
Tessa has vowed to avoid mixing up work with pleasure, but her vow seems to be forgotten when they
get to know each other better. Neither ar

I think this whole series is a good read. Long Time Coming is the first book in the Whitfield Brides trilogy.

A Change of Heart

A “Long Time Coming” the first installment in the “Whitfield Bride Series” is a sweet and endearing romance. I thoroughly enjoyed the instant attraction between Micah and Tessa. I also thought the cast of characters to be well-developed and quite memorable. I enjoyed the camaraderie of both families during their social gatherings throughout this story. I was definitely caught up in the very sensual love scenes sprinkled throughout the pages. However, as another reviewer mentions

I had to encourage myself to finish this book because I don't like to stop halfway through. There was too much repetition in the fact that "I love him, but I've sworn off men." It seemed like that was the last sentence of every chapter.

There is also the fact that there was too much description. I love description in a book, but I don't need to know that that the cup was 3/4 turned to the left when it's not pertinent to the story.
When I first started this book I hated it and almost quit reading before I reached the 5th chapter but as the story progressed I started to get more into it. I really did not like the male character in this book, Micah. I think the author tried to write him as an alpha male but instead he came across as very controlling and borderline obsessive. Sorry but I just could not root for him and Tessa ending up together.

I could not connect with the characters. The conversations felt wooden and I didn't feel the chemistry between Tessa and Micah. Tessa was cold, in general, and I never warmed to her.

I made it to the halfway point until I realized that I just wasn't enjoying the story and called it quits.

Also, no law school at Princeton.

District attorney Micah Sanborn walks into wedding planner Tessa Whitfield's home only to be stranded by a citywide blackout. This presents them with an opportunity that will not have occurred. But will the passion that Micah unleash on her be enough without the three words she so longs to hear.

I loved this book. I'd never heard of this author and I picked this book up on a whim at Costco, but it was very good. The ending left me wanting more -- a continuation.

Sweet and sensual but formulaic storyline. Standard issue Harlequin romance. Didn't wow me enough to continue the series at this time.

The story was a little slow to me at first, but by the end I was exciting.
