Publisher's Summary

Lexi O'Connell has secretly been in love with Ian Callaghan for more than 10 years. So when she returns to Pine Ridge and he turns those sexy crystal blue eyes her way, she doesn't have a hope of resisting, even if she knows it can only be for one night. Even if it will break her heart. Because while she would know him anywhere, he doesn't even recognize her. Ian Callaghan is mischievous, playful, and irresistible to women. When he sets his sights on the attractive young woman who has been discreetly staring at him, he doesn't think twice about seducing her. It wasn't supposed to be more than one night. And falling in love with her was definitely not part of the plan. A few days is all Ian needs to know that Lexi is The One. His soul mate. And he doesn't understand how she can just walk away. But what Ian doesn't understand might just kill her. Contains mature themes.

Great storytelling

I enjoyed this audiobook very much. The story was original and well written with great characters. As a nurse, there were a few things I found wrong with the medical portion of the story, but overall it was a fine story in this series. Aiden Snow did a great narration!

Aiden Snow is wonderful

I have all the books in this series and have read them multiple times. I am so excited to see them coming out as audio books and Abbie picked a very sexy narrator for our sexy Callaghans! My favorite brothers are Michael and Kane. Can't wait for their stories narrated by Mr. Snow!

One Night Isn’t Enough!

Ian Callaghan can’t believe that Lexie can just walk away from him when he knows that she is his soul mate. Lexi has been in love with Ian for years however she knows she cannot be with him for more than just one night of passion. Ian doesn’t have any idea that the secrets Lexie holds can kill her. The relationship between Ian and Lexi had a lot of bumps and there were many things they had to overcome. My heart went out to both of them, though at times I felt like shaking some sense into Ian! Lol! I really enjoyed this story and Aiden Snow’s narration always adds to that enjoyment.

Had potential

I have loved you for years books are my favorite. This started out good and it should have ended sooner when the first conflict about Kaylee came to a conclusion. No, they added more for no reason than to drag on the story. I won't read the rest in series. Not worth my credit.

very disappointing

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

No. This second book in the series was lacking in character development. I liked the lead male character from this book in the first book, but found him disappointing in this book. The lead female character was not to be liking.

What could Abbie Zanders have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

Based on the first book, i expected a similar type of story w/a strong female character and it just wasn't. For someone who lived w/her condition all for years, she wasn't very smart.

Which character – as performed by Aiden Snow – was your favorite?

I liked Aiden Snow's performance and will seek out his books.

Did First and Only inspire you to do anything?

yes, finish the book asap, so I can move on to another book.

Better than the first

We first met Ian in Dangerous Secrets (the first in the Callaghan series) But this could be read on its own. Ian sleeps around, charming women everywhere. He meets Alexis on a bus back to their home town. They spend a very passionate night together and Ian becomes absolutely captivated with the mystery woman. Turns out, this woman is none other than Lexi, his younger brother's childhood best friend. His entire family always saw her as the little sister they never had. She was always secretly in love with Ian, he never really realized his attraction to her until he had already made a huge mess of the situation.

I loved this one so much more than the first in the series. If I could do it over again, I would have read this one and just skipped the first altogether. The storyline and the characters had so much more depth. I found Lexi and Ian's relationship believable and honest. I really felt for Lexi because she had to deal with the evil step sibling/ mother and a very rare illness to contend with. I also enjoyed the interesting family dynamic. It's so cute how all the brothers embraced Lexi even though she had been gone for so long. Ian was so clumsy and messy throughout; I spent most of the time wanting to slap him upside the head. They were able to get it together but it took a lot of time and angst to get there.
No complaints about Aiden Snow. His performance was spot on.

Love 💘

I have fallen in love with the Callaghan brothers. Abbie is an awesome author. These books have everything I want in a romance. Love, honor, adventure, family, understanding, forgiveness etc...and especially very steamy sex scenes. I have always enjoyed aiden snow as a narrator!

First and Only

First and Only is the second book in the Callaghan Brothers series by Abbie Zanders. Another great book. The love and passion between Lexi and Ian is so powerful it grips you and never lets go. I had this pre-ordered as soon as it was listed and can't wait for the next book. HEA and no cliffhanger.

Narration by Aiden Snow was perfection. I absolutely love his deep sexy voice. He also captures every aspect of the characters and story line so completely it feels like you are living it. If I could give more than 5 stars for the narration I would!!!
