I REALLY loved this story...it came so highly recommended, and it did not disappoint. I was my first m-preg book as well.
It's a beautiful love story, the main characters are gentle and true to each other...so caring. It reads like fairy tale, cinderallaish story where the main characters have to overstep a lot of intrigue and misunderstanding to end up together.
I love the world the author created and just really loved the story. I'm really tempted to read the second book, but from the reviews am a little reticent, that Rio certainly pissed a lot of people off.
I recommend this one though.
