The First Last Boy by Sonya Weiss
Release Date: October 20, 2015
Genre: New Adult Contemporary
Sex was the plan. Falling in love wasn't.Eighteen-year-old Montana "Tana" Shaw has a plan for her life and she follows it to the letter. That includes losing her virginity to her best friend, Ryan Collins before she leaves for college. He's wild, tattooed, and oh-so-tempting. She never meant to fall for him. But when Tana learns that Ryan's past is responsible for her family's heartache, she's not sure her heart or their relationship can survive.
Ryan Collins is the foster boy from the wrong side of the tracks. He's scarred, no good, and knows with a past like his that he shouldn't get involved with Tana even if the sparks are hot enough to drive him crazy. But when the past rears its ugly head, he'll become the guy he hates in order to save the girl he loves.
I loved this book from the very first page. The characters leaped off the page to me, and their chemistry was evident from the start. But let me assure you. This wasn't insta-love. It was longtime friendship with denied sexual chemistry that both parties had ignored from the beginning until finally Tana decides she wants to lose her virginity to the person she trusts the most, her friend Ryan. When you throw an idea like that into a great friendship where both people have been trying to ignore feelings, you end up with feelings.
This was a great relationship based story, but also had a wonderful external conflict too. Ryan's past involves some pretty bad people, and he has to figure out a way to keep that from touching Tana.
Only, he can't.
Both of these characters were amazing to me in different ways. I lovd Tana for her sweetness and spunk, a combination you don't see often. I loved Ryan for his sexy, sweet, and caring side that he works so hard to keep people from seeing, but also he's got that reckless but brave and selfless side that just makes you fall in love with him.
There was a wonderful mixture between external and internal conflict in this story, as well as romance. The romance had my toes curling. The book was very fast paced to the point where I looked up and it was over before I knew it and I was wishing I had some more. Excellent book!!
