From the First (The Moorehouse Legacy, #3)
All Alex could see was her long, thick, copper-colored hair. Pale smooth skin. Lips that were naturally tinted pink. Eyes that were green like sea grass.
He stopped himself. His best friend Reese might be dead. But in Alex's mind, Cassandra was still very much the man's wife.

It was weird. No, not the book. Me. Anyone who knows me knows that I hate continuous push/pull in characters' relationship, but for some unknown reason, I had no problem enjoying this one. This book just did me right in a way that I still can't believe it myself! There was a lot of push/pull from the beginning, and it took almost the whole story for Alex to finally pluck up courage to tell Cassandra his feelings for her. Normally, this kind of thing would really piss me off, but to my amaz ...more
I loved this book! Give me a good, strong, tormented hero and I’m in literary heaven. Toss in a heroine who is tormented for the exact same reason, and well… there are no words.
I fell in love with Alex back in Beauty and the Black Sheep and have found myself being pulled deeper and deeper into his heartbreaking story. Unable to save his best friend’s life during a storm at sea which pulled Reese from the boat they were sailing, Alex Moorehouse carries a heavy burden of guilt for Reese’ ...more
I've absolutely fallen in love with this series and From The First is now included as one of my all time favourite romances ever. It is book 3 in the Moorehouse Legacy which I discovered through being a fan of JR Ward and her Black Dagger Brotherhood. Each book just gets better and with this instalment we finally get wounded and grief stricken brother Alex`s story and wow its smokin good.

Loved this!! From the First is the third book in Jessica Bird's (a.k.a. J.R. Ward) Moorehouse Legacy series. It was the first Moorehouse Legacy book I read, as it was the only Moorehouse book available from the library. I enjoyed this one so much that I went ahead and ordered the OOP copies of all the Moorehouse Legacy books and look forward to reading the series (in order now) and re-reading this one.
I'm not a big fan of Harlequin Romances (even though I read a ton of them in my late t ...more
I’ve very much enjoyed all of Jessica Bird’s (aka J. R. Ward’s) contemporary romances, but From the First is now my current favorite of the ones I’ve read so far. When it was first published by Harlequin, it was the last of the three-book Moorehouse Legacy series that follows the three Moorehouse siblings, two sisters and one brother, as they navigate life and find love. After the death of their parents, the three inherited the White Caps Bed & Breakfast on Saranac La ...more
Alex aka "The Sinner". Well what could be a greater sin than falling in love with with your friends' wife.
“I want you until I hurt. Until I sweat.
I love you with a raw, bleeding need that I've never understood.
And all I know for sure is that you can never be mine.”
Cassandra Cutler, widow of Reese Cutler had always thought that Alex hated her or why else would he go out of the way to avoid her at all costs. But why the hell was she attracted to him. H ...more
A hurricane caused Reese’s death while he and Alex were sailing. Alex survived and feels guilty. Catherine is Reese’s widow. Alex has secretly loved her for years. Catherine secretly desires Alex.
For almost the entire book Alex wants her but pushes her away. He does it in ways that are insulting and hurtful. She thinks he hates her. She wants him badly and sadly. I was frustrated with Alex over and o ...more
Cassandra has never understood what she has done to make Alex treat her so venomously, but she has lived through worse and plans to not let it stand in her way. As the work on th ...more
This was the best Moorehouse book yet! You know I love a good strong, tormented hero. And Alex Moorehouse (brother to Frankie and Joy of books #1 and #2) was no exception.
We find out in book #1 that Alex was in a boating accident that killed his partner/best friend and left him devastatingly injured. For Alex, who has captained a competitive ship crew (I don't have too much knowledge on the book, forgive me) and who has an independent streak a mile wide.
He's also wracked wit ...more
Yes, shocking! This is a J.R. Ward book and it’s getting a 3.5 star rating. Not to say I didn’t enjoy it, it just wasn’t as wonderful as I was expecting it to be. Let’s rewind a bit and say that I’ve read the first two books in this series and I’ve enjoyed them quite a bit (the second being my favorite so far). I love the small town feel of the books even though they are not the typical small town romance. They mix in a bit of the traditional Harlequin billionaire romance (some of them ...more
However FROM THE FIRST came as a pleasant surprise. A fellow reader encouraged me to try it despite my reservations, and the nudge was greatly appreciated. The story is engaging and I felt a connection to heroine as well as a strong understanding of the hero.
A good read.
Alex and Cassandra's story was more enjoyable than Joy and Gray's. Yes, there was back and forth pushing away and self-pity, but the plot was more interesting. Alex has always ...more
This final book was a quick read and was a great ending to the Morehouse trilogy. As Alex deals with his own demons, Cassandra has to deal with the fact that she may just be in live with A ...more
This is a fun Romance, chic lit, family owned B & B & falling in love.
Looking forward to reading more about this family and the B&B as it continues the Moorehouse Legacy
This book is more about Alex.
The third and final book in the saga was as good as the first two. All about the HEA for these siblings after a hard go at life. Alex and Cassandra make an amazing couple. It was a decent read all in all. I want a book about spike I want to know who he is and why does he have yellow eyes??
