First, I Love You by Genevieve exceeded all of my expectations.  Sound like a love story, right?  It is, three love stories actually, but so much more.  Police, federal agents, and....mobsters!  I was left wondering who the bad guys were, I loved them all.  It's a crime drama that tries to answer the question of nature vs nurture.  If a good person is in an evil position, is the person not still good?  I am so excited to have read this, and hope you all will be too.

Sometimes when I sit down to read a book I think to myself this is never going to work there is no way I am going to be able to stay awake and read this story.  I thought that would be the case with First, I Love You.  This book is not told from on person's point of view  or two people's points of view... but a total of six different people.  At first I couldn't figure out what all these people have in common you  have Tommy Gates a detective, his mother Mary Gates, his father Michael "Mickey" Downey, half sister and daughter to Mickey Downey  Kiki, and two FBI agents Ginny and James.  I was like say what now???  I thought for sure that this was going to be a story about how  a father abandoned his son who he had with his mistress Mary Gates who also happened to be a gangster and her son turned into a detective to bust his own father.  But I was surprised to find that this story was so much more than that.  This story had a bit of everything, gangsters, special agents, a daughter who appears to be a mod daughter/princess, a human trafficking ring, a son searching for a way to connect with the father that he never had in his life but never stopped loving him, and the best part? You don't get to see one love interest story develop here but three!!!  In any other book I would have had to buy three different books just to get the three stories I got in this one it was like a three for one special.   I don't want to give anything away about the book (since I have a tendency to start rambling and then give away too much...) but let me say that this story intrigued me enough to WANT to read the second book.  I've never seen anything done like this book before and I thoroughly enjoyed it unable to put it down and reading the entire night until I was done with it.  The story may have been told from multiple points of view but all the characters were connected to one another and it made the story work.  I look forward to reading the second book and learning where these characters go with their stories and especially what happens with Mary and Mickey, I give it four stars!

Amazing character development! Six different points of view but it never gets confusing. Definitely want to read the next one.

I like how the reader gets to know each character, gets their perspective and voice in each chapter. Gives it kind of a Noir feeling sometimes. Looking forward to the next book, for sure.
