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.
