At First Sight (Jeremy Marsh & Lexie Darnell #2)
Now, I didn't put this together with "True Believer" until I started to write this review, so I was pissed throughout the entire book because there was NO detail about how they fell in love, so it was completely unbelievable - it sounded like Jeremy was constantly trying to talk himself into believing he was in love.

The ending surprised me so I'd say it is ...more

Nicholas Sparks is a great author, no doubt about that. But here's the thing. His books have exactly the same plot but only with different characters; and twists that would seem to make each of his books distingu ...more
There are few things Jeremy Marsh was sure he'd never do: he'd never leave New York City; never give his heart away again after barely surviving one failed marriage; and most of all, never become a parent. Now, Jeremy is living in the tiny town of Boone Creek, North Carolina, married to Lexie Darnell, the love of hi ...more
