Review ❤️ Love At First by Kate Clayborn

February 23, 2021


Sixteen years ago, a teenaged Will Sterling saw—or rather, heard—the girl of his dreams. Standing beneath an apartment building balcony, he shared a perfect moment with a lovely, warm-voiced stranger. It’s a memory that’s never faded, though he’s put so much of his past behind him. Now an unexpected inheritance has brought Will back to that same address, where he plans to offload his new property and get back to his regular life as an overworked doctor. Instead, he encounters a woman, two balconies above, who’s uncannily familiar . . .
No matter how surprised Nora Clarke is by her reaction to handsome, curious Will, or the whispered pre-dawn conversations they share, she won’t let his plans ruin her quirky, close-knit building. Bound by her loyalty to her adored grandmother, she sets out to foil his efforts with a little light sabotage. But beneath the surface of their feud is an undeniable connection. A balcony, a star-crossed couple, a fateful meeting—maybe it’s the kind of story that can’t work out in the end. Or maybe, it’s the perfect second chance . . .

This is the first time that I am reading a book from Kate Clayborn. I found Love At First a very cute contemporary second chance romance. If you enjoy reading books from Lucy Score you will really enjoy this book. It hits all the feels with great character building with the main characters. It really seemed like the complex was its own little world that only a select few go to inhabit. I felt like I could connect with all the characters in this book and really enjoyed learning about each ones quarks. I was delighted in the detail of the apartment complex and its inhabitants. I feel like some authors gloss over a few details and some just go into way too much detail that I want to just skim over the intricate details. I love how you are introduced to the younger main characters in the prologue and learn a little about Will’s life before he is reintroduced into the present.

Eleanora Clarke is the quirky resident of her late Nonna’s apartment and loves living there. I felt for her because she hung on to everything that was the past with sentimental items and trying to make the other residents happy. I loved how the complex was her family and they all helped and there for each other. I enjoyed how they would stand up for each other and defend what they thought was how things should be exactly like it was in the past nothing ever changing.

Will Sterling was the new resident of his late uncles unit and just wanted to move on from being willed this place. He had a complicated childhood and just wanted to focus on the present. My heart felt for him being put thru so much as a kid and teenager. He is now an adult and has a career and his life already planned out. Then he gets a unit and just wants to rent it out for his own personal reasons. I thought the little disruptions that the other tenants gave Will while trying to clean out the unit were too funny. They were trying to show him how the complex was a “sorta” family.

I especially enjoyed reading when the two main characters interacted it was instant attraction between them both. Her trying to convince him to not rent out his place and causing little distractions but finding something between them neither could fight. Both characters were perfect for each other with learning of what to let go of and what to hang on to. I absolutely loved reading this book and look forward to looking into more books from this author.
