STEPHANIE: ★★★★

There’s something about your first time that you will never forget, unless you got drunk one night and gave it up and to this day can’t remember who it was with… there’s that… But for those who remember, you remember who, when and where and what you were thinking and feeling. This book takes a look into several characters’ first times. It’s not just the first kiss… it’s the first love, the first boyfriend, the first time you felt something more. Something you just wanted to reach out and remember.

This is a series of stories about first times and it is fun, flirty and sometimes full of romance. Sometimes wedded bliss, sometimes the best friend, but always something to remember. I loved reading this because there are so many snippets of memories and feelings… I loved reading this because it was more than just giving it up, it was about what was felt when it happened, regardless of what it was.

I also loved that it wasn’t something that had to be read all in one sitting. For those of you who are like me it is nice to actually put a book down and be able to come back to it later. Of course, that’s not how I read most books. I am so anxious to find out what happens next so I keep reading until 2 or 3 in the morning and then I get cranky if it is a cliffy. I don’t want several books to end, but that was the beauty of this, it’s a glimpse of full lenght books, but hitting on that one moment that changes everything. Several books and several stories, condensed into one. I loved that after I read one, I could put it down and come back to it and read a different story. It was a refreshing break from reading an entire book straight through. But I didn’t feel like any of the stories were lacking. Sure I wanted more of several of them because the brief look into that one part of the characters’ lives wasn’t enough.

I also felt like I discovered authors that I hadn’t read before as well as favorites of mine. There were several authors when I reached their stories in the book, I paused and went, why haven’t I read more of his/her books before? It is a great way to find new authors to love and new stories waiting to be told.

But is also a reminder of what that first time was really like. It wasn’t all hearts and roses… it wasn’t always the perfect moment, sometimes rooms catch on fire (figuratively and literally), sometimes the first time doesn’t even happen when you are expecting it to. It is a reminder of that first kiss, that first I love you, that first boyfriend… It is a nod to all of the first times that we experience and I loved it!
