You always remember your first time...

Whether it's the couple who decides not to go through with it, the two boys who finally aren't ashamed, the newlyweds whose wedding night could very well be their last night together, the deaf pair who have no choice but to take body language to a new level--or, of course, the two young lovers fumbling and laughing, getting everything wrong. These are the memories that will never fade.

Join nineteen fantastic authors as they pull back the curtain and give you a peek inside that one intense moment in their characters' lives when everything changes and nothing will ever be the same again.

Featuring stories from some of the hottest names in New Adult, Young Adult, and Romance including New York Times Bestselling authors J.Lynn/Jennifer Armentrout, Molly McAdams, Sophie Jordan, and Carrie Ryan.

NOTE: These stories are works of fiction. If you want to know about our first times, you'll have to buy us a pet monkey first.

 

Fifty First Times was a book that grabbed my interest as soon as I looked into it properly. I’ve recently started reading the new adult genre, and figured this would be a good way to scope out a few new authors, and gosh, was I correct.

With its title, you expect this book to be all about sex. And, to some extent, it is. But it’s also so much more than that. These stories aren’t just about people losing their virginities. There’s a couple faced with the reality of losing one another the day after their wedding. A former soldier learning to live again after experiencing a horrific attack whilst on duty. And that was what I loved so much about this novella collection. It would’ve been easy for the authors to simply write about nineteen couples going through their first time together.

So, don’t let the title and cover fool you. This isn’t just a bunch of novellas about sex. It’s a bunch of nineteen short stories written by some fantastic authors whose works I cannot wait to read more about.
