Reviewed for Chick Lit Central (www.chicklitcentral.com)

After locking eyes with a handsome stranger during a night out with her girlfriends, the last thing Maddy expected was ever seeing the handsome stranger again. Not until he shows up at her office first thing Monday morning.

In First Sight, we watch two people, destined to fall in love with one another, trying hard to resist their temptations. Maddy isn’t sure she should be getting involved with someone she works with, and really, how well do

First Sight by Laura Donohue was a great book. I love that this was a shorter book to read and that makes it easy for me to fit into my schedule. This was such a great story and I can’t wait to read more books by her in the future. This book was easy to read and understand. Her writing also made me want to keep reading because I had to know what happened and how the story ended. I loved the characters and the setting of this story. I think one of the reasons I loved this story so much was becaus ...more

Maddy is instantly attracted to Travis, but this is more of a connection at first sight story than a lust at first sight. It is obvious to everyone they work with that Maddy and Travis like each other, but will they realise?

This sweet, clean, slow burn romance was a pleasure to read. I liked and related to both Maddy and Travis, and hoped they would figure out how the other felt. The characters and situations all felt realistic. I enjoyed this debut novel from Laura and look forward to her next

I'm surprised that this is the first novel published by Indie Author Laura Donohue. It is carefully written and the editing is exceptional! The story line flows effortlessly with all of the action taking place around Washington DC. This was a fun, Chick-Lit read, and I couldn't put it down! You will definitely fall in love at FIRST SIGHT with Maddy and Travis. Sophie Kinsella fans will enjoy. Great first book from a new author!

A wonderful story about the sort of relationship we wish would happen to all of of. An instant connection, a solid friendship and the chance for something more. I loved both of the main characters. They're easy to connect to and root for and their relationship progresses extremely realistically.

Short and beautifully sweet, a love story for all to enjoy!

Cute Read

Sometimes it's nice to read a story not riddled with tons of raunchy sex. I appreciate a romance built on friendship and attraction

I've just finished reading this book and Ilove Marissa- she speaks her mind and is keen on the sparks between her friend Maddy and the new guy at work Travis.
