Title: First Comes Love
Author: Emily Goodwin
Publication Date: February 11, 2016
Genre: A friends to lovers romance...with a twist
Noah Wilson isn’t exactly “life partner” material, and he sure as hell isn’t “father material”. He’s my older brother’s best friend, and has been off limits, sworn off, locked in the highest tower and out of reach since we met over ten years ago. With his devilish good looks, tattoos, motorcycle, and trail of broken hearts and tears, I’ve had good reason to stay away from the bad boy my mother warned me about. Until one night.
One stupid, regrettable night that changed both of our lives forever. And now I only have nine months to decide our fate, to see if Noah’s rebel heart is capable of anything more than a one night stand. This isn’t a love story. This is a life story. And life doesn’t go according to plan.
First comes love is a cute, sweet story about an unconventional start to a relationship. The attraction has always been there, but neither Noah nor Lauren had acted on it. In fact, both had been completely closed off to acting on it. But one night, one moment of letting go, changes everything.
The journey to love was enjoyable, and I found myself hooked and wanting to know what would happen. How other characters would react, how this couple would eventually make peace with events, and if everything would finally fall into place for them.
It wasn't an easy journey, and there were times I felt worried for Lauren and told her to cut her losses, but the author managed to bring me around, and I was really pleased to have the epilogue. This isn't a heartbreaking story, it's a story of hope and promise, and a sweet read.
