Title: Last First Kiss
Author: Jane Anthony
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: August 8, 2019
Jesse Dylan was my best friend, my first kiss . . . and my first heartbreak.
Watching him walk out of my life almost ruined me. But years have passed, and the pain of losing him has long since faded.
Or so I thought.
One glimpse in his cobalt eyes and those old wounds reopened. Jesse wants a second chance at what might have been, but it’s too late. I’m with someone new. Someone safe. Someone who can’t break me.
Yet, the heart wants what it wants, and mine has only ever beat for the one who got away. I can’t deny him. I can’t resist him. He consumes my every waking thought and invades my dreams.
After all these years, I find myself wondering if I’ll ever truly stop loving the boy who taught my heart to hurt.
Jesse abandoned me when things got too difficult once.
I’m about to find out if lightning can strike twice.
3 1/2 OUCH, My Feels Stars
Okay y’all, let me start into this by saying I was dumb and went into a Jane Anthony romance expecting the expected. When I hear “friends-to-lovers” or “second chance” romance, I’m not usually expecting the sheer punch in the gut I received from this novel.
Holy guacamole, that hurt.
If you’re looking for a sweet friends-to-lovers romance, be prepared – this book is real and down-to-earth and has no rose-colored glasses about what love should be. Considering it’s partially based on real events, I guess that’s to be expected.
That said, the book was written beautifully and delivered the feels I expect from a good Jane Anthony book, even if it wasn’t the way I expected them. I will definitely continue to look out for her books in the future.
