About the Author

USA Today bestselling author Julie Anne Long originally set out to be a rock star when she grew up (and she has the guitars and fringed clothing stuffed in the back of her closet to prove it), but writing was always her first love. Since hanging up her guitar for the computer keyboard, Julie has penned books that frequently top reader and critic polls and have been nominated for numerous awards, including the RITA®, Romantic Times Reviewer's Choice, and the Quill, and reviewers have been known to use words like "dazzling," "brilliant," and "impossible to put down" when describing them. Julie lives in Northern California.

Ohmygoodness, loved. It's an interesting coincidence that the last Julie Anne Long book I read also featured a single mother heroine ( It Started With a Scandal ), but OMG, no one else quite writes single mothers the way Ms. Long does--or the why-is-this-guy-fictional heroes that they find their HEA with. I mean, just read this bit of evidence here: "You will be willing to fight ugly, and risk failure and embarrassment or anything else that makes you wake up sweating, heart racing in terror, in the middle of the night, to make sure someone you love is safe and happy. And you'll know it's love when you do it without even thinking." Mr. Gabe Caldera, ladies and gentlemen. Sigh. In case you can't tell, I absolutely adored Gabe and Eden's story from start to finish. From their absolutely adorable--yet somehow also totally hot--long game that involved interrupted Q & As that got decidedly more risque as they went on and included more than one bare chested moment ("It's so cool! His stomach has squares. You could play checkers or tic-tac-toe on it!" ahhhh, from the mouths of babes...) to their eventual, very hard won HEA, it at turns made me swoon, come to near tears, and laugh out loud. Somehow I knew Ms. Long would be as amazing at writing contemporary romances as she is historical... First Time at Firelight Falls is the fourth book in the Hellcat Canyon series, but it worked just fine as a standalone. The prior book in the series ( Dirty Dancing at Devil's Leap ) is loosely connected, since it features Eden's younger sister Avalon, but you definitely don't have to have read it already to enjoy this one. (I make no promises about how quickly you'll be adding it--and the two books before it--to your TBR, though. Be careful of possible whiplash, though...) Fingers crossed that Eden and Avalon's annoying cardiac surgeon brother Jude gets his own book, though--surely he can make me snort-laugh as much on his own as he does trapped inside Eden's head? ("Lust isn't measured in kilowatts. For Christ's sake, Eden,"--Dr. Jude Harwood.) My copy of this book has So. Many. Highlights. :) Rating: 4 1/2 stars / A I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book.

3.5 stars I had read and enjoyed the previous book in this series, so I couldn’t resist this one. Eden and Gabe are both great MCs. They’re both loving and maybe a bit stubborn and it works. Annalise straight up steals every scene she’s in and I loved reading her questions and reaction. Plot wise, it was okay. The underlying theme is that Eden doesn’t have time and it definitely comes across. Eden and Gabe fall in love in 5 minute increments because that’s basically all the time they have to be around each other. I would have liked to see a bit more from that side of their relationship. The secret wasn’t a surprise, but I did enjoy how it was handled. Overall, it was a quick read, I really liked these characters, and the epilogue was fantastic. **Huge thanks to Avon Books for providing the arc free of charge**
