March 2017 - 2nd read of My One and Only and I may or may not have devoured it in one afternoon... ;) Hehe. Rereading these books is seriously making me so happy!

January 2015 - Oh my goodness gracious great balls of fire Batman!! So many feelings!! I just don't know where to start!! My One and Only was absolutely AMAZING!! I LOVED it!!

Meredith and Asher are no strangers to our town of Fircrest. I'm sure along the way you have loved them and also may have wanted to shake them a bit and say "What

Fun, sweet romance

Meredith is a new wedding planner and having a hard time finding clients. Thats when she gets the idea to start her own dating website that will hopefully lead to love-matches and potential clients. She goes into business with her close friend Asher and their friend Brogan. The problem is, now that they are in business together she realizes her feelings for Asher run much deeper than friendship. She has been burned pretty badly before and does not want to risk their friendship.

Merediths Story

Another clean, light, sweet romance from Shannon Guymon. My One and Only is book one in the Love and Weddings trilogy and takes you back to the town and people of Fir Crest, Washington. Do you know what I love about these books? Everything. :) I love that Shannon draws you into her stories so much that you come to adore her characters...or hate..if the case may be....You come to care about them and so it's like having the ultimate Epilogue, as you read all of

Great as usual with author and series! I love this growing family of characters and how old friends from previous books never go away. It was nice to see Ash finally find his love. Clean romance. I can't wait for the next book!

This is the first book in the series, but it's really not. There have obviously been other books in Firecrest, and by the number of other characters we were supposed to know, there have been a lot of them. Many issues from other previous books were brought into this one. I think I kind of caught on to what had happened in the past. At least some of it. Not knowing made this book harder to enjoy. I'm not even sure where the Firecrest books start. It seems that there are several series set there. ...more

Shannon Guymon has done it again!

I down loaded Shannon newest book My One and Only the day it was released. I had been waiting what seemed like forever!!! It was well worth the wait. I have been trying to read it for three days. I finally finished it in the wee hours this morning. Whew!!!! What a ride. I have said before that Shannon is the queen of the love triangle, and it is still true!!!! She has woven friendship, relationships, and love into her stories that constantly pull at your heart

This is the fourth trilogy that takes place in Fircrest, WA and by now, I really feel that these characters are my friends. The characters come and go throughout each of the books and I love seeing them beyond their stories.

I have to admit, I didn't like Meredith or Asher much in previous books, but getting to know them better and watching their transformations changed my mind about their characters.

Meredith is a very strong willed woman and she throws everything she has into relationships,

Missed the mark...BIG TIME!

First off, readers should have been told up front that this is like book 10 in a series of books about a group of characters in fictional Fir Crest, Washington. By calling it Book 1, it seems like it should be a stand alone, or the first of a series, but it's really not. There are so many references to past relationships and previous books that It doesn't truly stand alone. It may be Meredith and Asher's story, but it's also about a busload of other background

I haven't read the others in the series, so it felt like the first bit was catching up on characters I didn't care about. Add that in with the unrealistic nature of the beginning and I can't really get into it to see if it improves. Maybe I'll give it another try after I've read the other books.

Such a cute book. I'm glad Asher was normal in this book. I really was starting to not like him in the last one. I love pule. He needs someone.

I do enjoy Ms. Guymon's books. Can't remember which of her others I've read but I'm a fan when I do!

I like Meredith, no lie. She is stubborn and in her own way of love. She has a good reason. She's protecting her heart. I get this heroine.
Asher is easy to like and so is Pule, though for me the triangle didn't last long. I was team Asher from the beginning. I would like Pule to get his own HEA (happily ever after.) As its a series, I bet he will, and she'll be awesome.

All the wonderful emotional

One of my favorite kinds of books is one that you get transported in as soon as you start reading; this is definitely one of those. From the minute I started reading until the very last page I was hooked. I couldn't nor did I want to put it down. The sweet romance developed right before my eyes, and left me grinning ear to ear. I mean what more do you want a swoon worthy guy and a sassy woman, and when they are together lots of fireworks are created!!

I love this story and the plot. It is

My One and Only is the first book in Shannon Guymon's newest Fircrest trilogy. I haven't read all of the previous trilogies so I was more familiar with Asher than Meredith. After reading "Dreaming of Ivy" I was hoping the author would do a book about Asher. He seemed spoiled, and I wanted the right woman to come along and unspoil him.

By the time this book starts Asher and Meredith have both grown up a lot. They've been through a lot (some of it caused by their own actions), and they are ready to

I had to catch up to who the people were in the book. I personally could not stand Meridith. I can understand that she is a passionate person, but I really did not like her. I liked the end, though, finally.

This was my first book by Shannon Guymon and I wouldn't suggest it. Even though it is the first book in the love and weddings series, it is not the first book in Fircrest Washington. I don't know which series starts this town, but I suggest finding it and starting there because there was way too much going on and too many back stories that were only alluded to that I spent more time trying to keep everyone straight instead of enjoying Meredith and Asher's story. I did like their story, but ...more

Throughout the book I kept wondering if I had jumped into the middle of a series, but after checking and double checking, it clearly says it's book #1 . Events kept getting referenced to, even the relationship between the two MCs was referenced (kissing and dating and what??? when did all that happen? how did they go from that to not really knowing?), that left me as a reader like I completely missed something.

My One and Only

Sweet romance. Enjoyed Meredith and Asher. The only problem I had was the referring to things in the past that I guess if you had read books in the previous series you would know about.

This is Meredith's story...

I got to admit, I didn't love Meredith's characters through most of the book, but I love a good triangle and Asher & Pule were great characters, patient men.

Fun read though, can't wait to read the whole series.

These Fircrest books keep getting better and better! I had a binge reading weekend and read 3 of them! Meredith needed her own story..... After all she put herself through for Kam it was only fair that she have her own story. She is so hard headed though I wasn't sure if she was going to get her happy ending. It takes a lot of effort to learn to open ones heart to other people after being hurt and that is just what she has to learn to do. After Ivy and Cleo Asher was due for a happy ending as ...more

Another good quick romance to read when youre feeling down. This story is set in Fircrest, Washington (like many other stories by this author). There are many side characters in this that have their own books Ive read earlier. Meredith, Asher and Pule are the three characters in this romance. Meredith isnt looking for love. Shes loved twice and crashed and burned both times. But shes struggling to make ends meet and when she runs an idea by her friend, Asher, about an online dating site, hes all ...more

This is Meredith's book, she was in other stories but she finally gets her happily ever after. But she is Meredith so not without a bit of drama. I love that Asher, Brogan and Meredith come up with such a cute name! As it always seems to go how can Meredith fall for Asher if she is working with him. Asher really mellows out in this book doesn't have as many moments where you are smacking your forehead thinking "Asher? really?"

As I read this book, it felt like many of the characters were presented as if I should already know them. This confused me some since it was the first book in the series. Afterwards, I looked it up and there are other series that precede this book. I would suggest reading those first. I think I would have enjoyed the book more if I had done so. I liked the overall story and the characters did grab my interest. I will probably read other book in this series and the series that precede it. The ...more

A sweet story bursting with characters

I enjoyed this book, although I think I would have loved it more had there not been so much focus on so many characters. I have read other books from this author that have the same characters, and while it's nice to hear about then, I wish the author had spent more time with the main characters in this book, rather than having so many other characters talk about them.
