The First Word


To stay sane, Andie Tilly must keep her mind on her work. Her job as a pediatric occupational therapist is the perfect distraction from the unspeakable tragedy she experienced as a child. But when she meets alternative-energy magnate Rhys Griffiths and his autistic toddler, Will, she quickly realizes her heart will never be the same. Especially when her name becomes Will’s first word.

After accepting a position as a live-in therapist for Will, Andie steels herself against the appeal of the disconcertingly attractive—and attracted—Rhys. But their chemistry can no longer be denied, and their heated affair seems destined for happily ever after. A destiny Andie’s terrified to embrace.

When Andie’s guilt, Rhys’s awkwardness, and the abrupt appearance of an erratic ex threaten to dismantle their delicately blooming relationship, they must decide if love is worth the challenge. Can Andie and Rhys find their way back to each other? Or will the demons of the past simply prove too strong?

    I like it so far, but I must say that the first few chapters read like 50 Shades, but with Autism rather than S&M. Filthy rich, quirky stud; young, beautiful brunette living on-site - what's the worst...

    The main character Andie had a traumatic experience as a child and it still haunts her in the present day. She still tries to put on a brave face most of the time. She is an OT and has one special pat...

    I got this during a free Prime trial. However, my review isn't exactly fair. Somehow, I missed that this was a romance, and it's not my favorite genre. Even so, the book held my interest and was an ea...

    I was lucky enough to be given an advance copy of Isley's debut. Normally, this type of women's fiction/romance novel wouldn't be at the top of my to-read list. But I'm so glad I read this one! The wr...

    Amazon Kindle offered a deal to read a selection of books released to Kindle prior publication. Normally, I give these a pass as I have so many chosen books to read. And, to be honest, I enjoy gentle ...

    This was a very interesting story, and I received it for free as a Kindle First selection. We have an occupational therapist, Andie, who has just lost her job, but in assessing almost three-year-old W...

    The plot of this story promised a refreshing change from the usual romance novel: an autistic toddler speaks his therapist's name as his first word, and his filthy rich single father wants said therap...

    The First Word's synopsis intrigued me and I was in the mood to try a new author so off I went to read without any real expectations.There were some good points and not so great. One thing I did enjoy...

    Romance is my genre of choice, and this was an enjoyable Cinderella type story with characters that have some dimension to them. Andie is beautiful and intelligent, but drawn into herself because of t...
