First Impressions Trilogy by Josephine Myles

First Impressions by Josephine Myers 4*
BLURB When ugly socks attract.
Surly artist Jez just can't help staring at the brightly colored socks of the businessman who sits opposite him on the train every day. He weaves a whole history for the mysterious stranger in a vain attempt to stave off his attraction, but it only ends up feeding his bizarre obsession. Then one hot morning, Jez finally snaps and starts sketching...

My Review: Sweet short story that had a lot going for it. I loved the characters and the way the got together. The artistic view of the world a seen by Jez helped make this a great story.

Fuzzy by Josephine Myers 4*
BLURB When sofas attack!
When Jez gets home early and discovers his incapacitated lover hiding something under the sofa cushions, he expects it to be porn, but what Steve's really hiding is something both embarrassing and strangely sensuous!

My Review: This had a lovely humorous turn to it that left me with a smile on my face.

Last Chance by Josephine Myers 4*
BLURB: Finding the strength to face up to your past is much easier with the love of a good man.
Surly artist Jez can hardly believe his good fortune in ending up in domestic bliss with a warmhearted man like Steve, but one morning a letter arrives, stirring up old hurts. Jez finds it hard to believe Steve will still want him when he reveals his sorry history. Steve, however, is determined to prove that he loves Jez just the way he is — and he’ll even do it before he finishes knitting his first pair of socks…

My Review: This one had a much darker feel to it but I was delighted with the way the author faced the death of a family member and still managed to produce a really romantic story.
