You never forget your first time…
A brand new anthology of original, never-before-read stories from today’s hottest authors, including:
Alessandre Torre, Kim Karr, Jen Frederick, Alexa Riley, Lynda Chance, Sarah Castille, Nina Lane, CJ Roberts, Anna Zaires, Nikki Sloane, Cynthia Sax, Avery Aster, Pam Godwin, Skye Warren, Julia Sykes, Cynthia Rayne, Jenika Snow, Debra Presley, Shoshanna Evers, Tamsen Parker, and Nina Levine!
From young heartbreak to a virginity auction, from the chance meeting to the happily ever after, twenty-one exclusive stories explore first love in all its forms. This set includes almost 200,000 words of steamy encounters and sweet romance.
Worldbuilding: This short story takes place in a smaller town and one that is on the wrong side of the tracks so to speak. The setting is the foster home where the teens are staying.
Characters: The main characters are Blue and Hannah. Blue is the ultimate bad boy with the scary and dark reputation to match. Hannah is just a girl that bad things have happened to who is just trying to survive her situation.
Plot: This is a story of first love and finding comfort for the first time in an unlikely source. I loved the way Hannah and Blue were able to connect in such a short amount of time and how deep that connection was.
Writing: Everything thing I read felt so raw and real. This story was told in first person point of view of Hannah and there were definitely a couple sentences from her that just made my heart break and eyes prickle.
Curb Appeal: This cover is great! And the blurb is very intriguing! I don’t think I’ve read a story about foster kids before but I really liked this unique situation.
Ultimately: This was a great snippet on how Blue and Hannah met! This short story is the prologue for Blue and Hannah’s story in the Stripped series called Better When It Hurts. All in all, I would definitely recommend checking out this story in the For the First Time Anthology!!
I couldn't have said that better myself! Reading is huge passion of mine. And I'm glad that books not only expand my world view but that they bring the wonderful people who created them into my life. You can always find me with a book and an eclectic mix of music on. I am a HEA junkie extraordinaire! I am a Beta reader, who loves helping authors bring their characters to life. As well as an avid romance reader (every and anything ;D) turned aspiring author.
