“How long do you last in bed?” Those were her first words to me, swiftly followed up with, “And how big would you say you are?”
Persephone Alexander. Math genius. Lover of blazers. The only girl I know who can make Heidi braids look sexy as hell. And she’s on a mission. Lose her virginity by the end of the semester.
I walked in on her interview session for potential candidates (who even does that?) and saw straight through her brave front. She’s got a list of Firsts to accomplish like she’s only got months to live. I’ve decided to be her guide for all her firsts except one. Someone’s got to keep her out of trouble. I have one rule, no sex. We even shook on it.
I’ll help her find the right guy for the job. Someone like her doesn’t need someone like me and my massive…baggage for her first time.
Drinking at a bar. Check.
Partying all night. Double check.
Skinny dipping. Triple check.
She’s unlike anyone I’ve ever met. The walls I’d put up around my heart are slowly crumbling with each touch that sets fire to my soul.
I’m the first to bend the rules. One electrifying kiss changes everything and suddenly I don’t want to be her first, I want to be her only. But her plan was written before I came onto the scene and now I’m determined to get her to re-write her future with me.

“I’ve been dreaming of you every night, and if I’m still dreaming, I don’t want to wake up. I need you.”
The Perfect First is wonderful heartwarming opposites attract romance. Told from dual points of view, The Perfect First follows the story of Seph & Reece. Seph and Reece couldn’t be more different if they tried. While Seph is young, she is smarter than her years; the total nerdy girl. And then you have Reece. Reece is the experienced jock who could have any girl he wanted. Their first encounter might have been rocky and definitely unconventional, but totally unforgettable. Reece will quickly find that there is more to Seph than meets the eye and will do anything to continue on with this unexpected friendship…..
The Perfect First was such a fun and entertaining read. It was so fresh and so unexpected. I couldn’t help but read it in just a single sitting. Seph and Reece pulled me in from the very first page and left me hanging on every word. Reece & Seph had amazing chemistry. I loved how different they were and how they brought out the best in one another. I loved the slow burn and build toward their something more. The took the time to get to know one another and really let the tension build. And once the lines began to cross, all bets were off and I just couldn’t get enough.
The Perfect First is a really sweet story filled with fantastic humor and lots of great firsts. I laughed. I swooned. I totally fell in love with these characters and their story. The Perfect First was a joy to read, from beginning to end. I thoroughly enjoyed getting lost in these characters.

Inspiration also strikes when I hear a song, meet someone new or daydream while at soccer practice.
