Title: Firsts
Author: C.L. Matthews
Genre: Erotic Romance
Release Date: May 22, 2018
She’s forbidden.
Too young, too pure, and not mine.
I’ll break all the rules to be with her.
She’s mine, 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, he’ll never be mine.

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

All consequences be damned.
Four ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ stars from Ari

Holy freaking crap. What did I just read? Mind officially blown. Firsts by C. L. Matthews serves up a naughty, dirty, taboo story about love between a young girl and her stepfather that will have you squirming with each of the pages.

Firsts follows the torrid love affair between Leia and her stepfather Silas. With him she experiences first love, first heartbreak, and first hate. I found Leia to come off as a tad annoying at times, but what young adolescent isn’t? Silas’ lust for her is all consuming and yet I didn’t find it predatory or feel like it was wrong. It felt like an all consuming and unavoidable connection between two people with seriously screwed up circumstances. It’s a love story that I shouldn’t have been rooting for or devouring each page like I was starved for words. But I did! I loved every single dirty, depraved, and oh so delicious moment of it.

If you’re into taboo, insanely sexy writing, and can handle a cliffhanger ending than run and pick up Firsts. It’s so delicious you won’t be able to set it down until you’ve devoured every single word C. L. Mathews gives you. I can’t wait for the next book, Lasts! 4 Stars.

C.L. Matthews resides in Utah, the state with the best snow on earth. She is not a fan of the snow but loves her state just the same. She is known for her swag business and creative pieces. C.L. Matthews is a swag maker, reader, and a fairly new author, it isn’t an easy task but she wants to succeed in many things. Her hobbies consist of crafting, drinking coffee until she can’t consume any more, and reading until she falls asleep with books in her lap. C.L. Matthews is married to her childhood best friend, she got her happily ever after.
