At First Light - Mari Madison

4.5 Stars!

At News 9 San Diego, relationships don’t get canceled. They just go on hiatus...

After five years of reporting in war-torn Syria, Troy Young has returned to his hometown of San Diego. Readjusting to civilian life is proving difficult. He keeps having panic attacks during live shots. But he’s given one more chance as an entertainment reporter doing a “He Said, She Said” review segment. It’s not what Troy had in mind—especially when he discovers who his new partner is. 

Movie-obsessed Sarah Martin loves her gig at News 9...until the man who broke her heart enters the studio. Still, the desire between Sarah and Troy has not subsided even if he did pick his career over her. She doesn’t want to trust him again but they’ll need to overcome their off screen tension if they hope to handle the drama that’s about to unfold...

Another great romance from Mari! Geez - I almost hate to call it a "romance" because it (the whole series) is so much more than a romance.

Mari really has a way of hooking you in with her characters. Absolutely great character development! In this one I actually found myself liking Troy, the male lead, even more than Sarah. But Sarah kind of got a bad rap in the last book so - we weren't really meant to start off liking her. I just found it hard to switch over even after a while. Oh I did though - I did end up liking her. she turned out to be a real sweetheart, and she was great for Troy! I just really loved Troy right from the beginning. 

I thought the parts with Troy and his suffering from PTSD were excellent! And once again I really enjoyed the whole news room drama!

This is the third book in the series and I have enjoyed each one! A mix of suspense, drama, angst, heartache and a little bit of steam, Mari Madison again puts together a great read! I will definitely be reading more from this author!
