fiftyfirsttimesYou 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.

Reviewer’s Thoughts

Fifty First Times: A New Adult Anthology is a fantastic collection of short stories written by an stellar line up of authors. These first time stories are not a typical first time encounter and all differ so much that you don’t feel like you are pushing the repeat button.  Like all anthologies, the stories vary but I have to admit I enjoyed all of the stories which is a rarity for me.

Fifty First Times has an outstanding line up of some of favorite authors.  I highly enjoyed seeing some of my favorite characters in their own stories.  I especially enjoyed J. Lynn’s story about Ollie and Brit.  If you read Wait for Me and Be with Me, you were left wanting more of these two characters and this short story was amazing.  I wish it had been a full book.  I enjoyed Lisa Desrocher’s taking a character that you loated from her best seller A Little Too Far and gave him his HEA.  Tracy Wolff gives us a little taste of her snowboarding word with Gage’s story.  Molly McAdams’s gives us Sharing Firsts: a A Sharing You prequel which made me add the soon to be released book to my must read list!  So many good stories packed into one book!
