Blurb:From New York Times bestselling author Katy Regnery comes her first duo of paranormal romances! ONCE UPON A TIME… the most beautiful boy in the world kissed me. I’ve never been able to forget. Perhaps it was his jet-black hair, or the changing copper-color of his eyes, the intense way he looked at me… or the fact that he awakened my passion for the first time, at once otherworldly yet heartbreakingly real. But after that kiss, I never saw him again. His name was Jack Beauloup. Jack, my “Beautiful Wolf.” Twenty years passed. He has returned. For me.
It’s You, Part 1 is Katy Regnery’s first paranormal romance. It is also the first book that I have ever read by her, so going into this I didn’t know what to expect. The paranormal genre has always been my favorite, and up until last year it is the genre that I read almost exclusively. Therefore, I have read a lot of it in my lifetime which makes it hard for me to come across a story that contains elements that seem unique or different. However, Katy Regnery managed to do just that.
Originality in paranormal romance is something guaranteed to impress me every time, and that was hands down the thing that I enjoyed most about this novel. What made it seem fresh and different was the mythology she created dealing with a supernatural natural being that even readers never having read PNR before know something about. Sure, it shares some similar characteristics that I have found in other books, but she managed to put a distinctive spin on a story that we have all heard many times before. If it seems like I am being a little vague, that’s because I am. I don’t want to lay everything out for you, because I don’t want to spoil anything.
The writing style was another aspect of this book that stood out to me. I can usually fly through PNR pretty quickly. This is a much slower moving novel than I am used to in this genre, mostly due to the descriptions being heavier and it taking a long time for the heroine, Darcy, to learn/accept the truth about the hero, Jack, and their relationship. I have to be honest and say that was an aspect that turned me off in the first half of the book. Your mileage may vary. This might even be a plus for some readers. I just want to say that, for me, this was not a book that sucked me in from the beginning. There was definitely a period where I had to force myself to keep reading. I don’t regret it now, but I think it is something worth mentioning because it did affect my enjoyment.
Insta-love is present in this story, but there is a supernatural reason behind it. By the time Jack and Darcy get together, 20 years have past since they first discovered their feelings for one another. They have been consumed with thoughts of each other for every day of those 20 years. The combination of the preternatural reason for their love and the length of time they spent apart leads to all of their interactions being extremely intense. The way they feel about each other is profound and overwhelming, and the author does a wonderful job of making that come across to the reader.
When they finally get to be together the way they always dreamed, Darcy finds out some information about Jack that freaks her out to put it midly. There is a huge obstacle in the way of their happily ever after, and it has them separated for the majority of the second half of the book. My heart broke for Jack. Then, it crumbled into little bitty pieces. Darcy reacts in a realistic way to this issue, but I still wanted to smack her. Why couldn’t she just give him the benefit of the doubt? Is that so much to ask for? So what if said information was slightly terrifying?! Jack is so sweet, selfless, and completely devoted to her in every way that I couldn’t help but be angry with her no matter how irrational it was.
I thought I was going to hate the part of the book where Jack and Darcy are separated. I am usually not a fan of that at all, but that was not the case this time. There was a few reasons for that. We finally get Jack’s perspective. For the first half of the story we were limited to Darcy’s point of view. It was a welcomed change for me, especially because I like his character more in general. We get to learn more about him, his past, his family, and the missing pieces of the story up until this point. I wish we could have gotten even more of it. The book ends in a cliffhanger, and I can't wait to see how everything turns out in the end.
Overall, It’s You, Part 1 is a beautiful love story that is sure to tug at your heart strings. Original, magical, and romantic, it is well worth the read. I recommend this to fans of paranormal romance that are looking for a little something different and don’t mind a slower read.

About the Author:New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Katy Regnery started her writing career by enrolling in a short story class in January 2012. One year later, she signed her first contract and Katy’s first novel was published in September 2013. Twenty-five books later, Katy claims authorship of the multi-titled, New York Times and USA Today Blueberry Lane Series, which follows the English, Winslow, Rousseau, Story, and Ambler families of Philadelphia; the six-book, bestselling ~a modern fairytale~ series; and several other standalone novels and novellas. Katy’s first modern fairytale romance, The Vixen and the Vet, was nominated for a RITA® in 2015 and won the 2015 Kindle Book Award for romance. Katy’s boxed set, The English Brothers Boxed Set, Books #1–4, hit the USA Today bestseller list in 2015, and her Christmas story, Marrying Mr. English, appeared on the list a week later. In May 2016, Katy’s Blueberry Lane collection, The Winslow Brothers Boxed Set, Books #1-4, became a New York Times E-book bestseller. In 2016, Katy signed a print-only agreement with Spencerhill Press. As a result, her Blueberry Lane paperback books will now be distributed to brick and mortar bookstores all over the United States. Katy lives in the relative wilds of northern Fairfield County, Connecticut, where her writing room looks out at the woods, and her husband, two young children, two dogs, and one Blue Tonkinese kitten create just enough cheerful chaos to remind her that the very best love stories begin at home.
