The First Lights - Christy Pastore


Blurb:

Hannah

One minute we were a family of four—then, in the blink of an eye, half of my world was gone.
Nearly two years after I received the phone call that changed my life forever, we’re living in a new town and facing new opportunities.
All I want is to be a strong parent for my son and build a good life. I’m still fighting to figure out how to be okay. Falling for someone? Not in the cards for me. I had my happily ever after.
Until he appears.
One look from the ex-NFL player turned high school football coach brings my soul to life. But the man tests my patience with his arrogance. He knows how to manage his players and his students, but he needs a major ego adjustment.
Every night when my eyes close, I tell myself there’s no way I’ll fall for Wyatt Hamilton, I can’t . . . he’s my son’s new coach.

Wyatt

She’s the last thing that I expected. But I’m drawn to her.
When she stepped onto my field with her long sexy legs, arms covered in tiny geometric tattoos, dark hair and her perfect kissable lips—she stoked a fire inside me. I never dreamed that I’d feel that spark again.
Hannah Richman understands my anguish and emotional turmoil, because she’s been through the same hell.
Wanting her is taboo—forbidden. She’s the mother of one of my students.
No matter how much I crave her . . . there’s no way I can have her, it would be inappropriate.
We’re about to redefine that word.

My Review:

It was my first Christy Pastore book and GOD, I don’t even know where to start. I mean, besides the obvious that I need to have that book in paperback (twice, so I can lick the cover of one) and read it again. It started gut-wrenching and then it became healing and incredible.
Seriously.
Wyatt and Hannah are love. I usually want to keep the book-boyfriends for myself (and holy shit, Wyatt’s hot!), but Hannah and Wyatt belong together. There’s no other way.

The writing is gripping and I sat the whole book in one sitting. I didn’t want to stop, and I didn’t even pretend I could lie to myself about ‘just one more chapter’. It had to be read at once, and I do not regret a single second of it.
Also, this book makes me want to read all the sport romances, all the sweet firsts of other couples. It made me long for a Friday night in a high school football stadium, and quiet moments on the back porch. Mrs. Pastore, you truly wrote a heart-touching story there. I so much recommend it at all times.

BBF's Rating:


Five out of five handsome book-boyfriends.

Everyone, grab this book the moment you can.

xo,

Sam
