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 Las Vegas!! I always like the Sin City back drop although this tale focused more on the characters than location.
Characters: The main characters are Tiffany and Ethan. They are so freaking sweet and innocent in their own way. But at the same time hot and sexy when they finally reconnected!
Plot: This is such a sweet second chance story! This is an adult romance story and takes place 10 years after they lost one another when they were teenagers. This story, their reuniting, just made me grin like a loon. It was primarily sex but it worked. I just wish there was more of their story/life.
Writing: This story was told in first person points of view of both Ethan and Tiffany. It is also its own short little story, and it is not part of any previous works by Alexa Riley. From the get go you can feel their heartache and how much they miss each other and yearn for one another.
Curb Appeal: The cover of this Anthology is gorgeous and simple! There is a teeny tiny blurb at the beginning of this short story in the Anthology. It gives you just enough to get the gist of the characters and what is going on.
Utlimately: This was a sweet and smutty read! I fell in love with these characters and I wish their story could have been a full length novel!!! I seriously urge you to go check out this Anthology and come fall in love with Tiffany and Ethan too!
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.
