She’s forbidden.
Too young, too pure, and not mine.
I’ll break all the rules to be with her.
She belongs to me, even if she doesn’t know it yet.

He’s taboo.
Too old, too experienced, and my stepfather.
I’ll cross every line to be with him.
He’s not mine, and never will be.

It’s not about the danger of what’s forbidden,
it’s about the pleasure we get from it.

All consequences be damned.


The moment I heard about this story I jumped at the chance to read it because it seems that I have been in a forbidden romance mood lately and I am absolutely loving every freaking moment of it. Let me just say that this book was no exception and I quickly found myself captivated by Silas and Leia’s intensely addictive attraction. My heart bled for these two and I was in a trance throughout the entire story.

Firsts by C.L. Matthews is one of those stories that you cannot help but LOVE and HATE all at the same time. I loved it because the writing was unbelievably beautiful and the characters spoke to me, but in another sense I hated it for that freaking epic cliffhanger. Yes I have been known to love cliffhangers in the past for the intense angst that I feel anticipating what will happen next, but lately I have been rethinking that stance. My heart is still racing over this story and I cannot even fathom what state it will be in after I finally get to my hands on Lasts. I seriously want to fast-forward to the next book like RIGHT NOW…if you don’t believe me just check out below what I was thinking just moments after finishing it!
OMG…NO…YOU…CAN…NOT…LEAVE…US…HANGING…LIKE…THIS! I cannot wait for the next book in the duet. GIVE IT TO ME NOW! I mean RIGHT NOW!!!
