Title: First Comes Love
Author: Emily Goodwin
Publication Date: February 11, 2016
Genre: A friends to lovers romance...with a twist
First comes love. Then comes marriage. Then comes a— Hold up. You’re joking right? As if life works off a neat little list like that, moving down, checking things off before jumping to the next task. We’re not married. We’re not lovers. Hell, we’re hardly even friends. Noah Wilson isn’t exactly “life partner” material, and he sure as hell isn’t “father material”. He’s my older brother’s best friend, and has been off limits, sworn off, locked in the highest tower and out of reach since we met over ten years ago. With his devilish good looks, tattoos, motorcycle, and trail of broken hearts and tears, I’ve had good reason to stay away from the bad boy my mother warned me about. Until one night. One stupid, regrettable night that changed both of our lives forever. And now I only have nine months to decide our fate, to see if Noah’s rebel heart is capable of anything more than a one night stand. This isn’t a love story. This is a life story. And life doesn’t go according to plan.
Review by: Tracy
First comes love, then comes marriage, then comes a baby in a baby carriage. Yeah not the path that Laurens life took. One night with Noah, her brothers best friend, was all it took to set her life on a different path. Now she needs to figure out what road she is going to travel and whether or not Noah will be along for the ride.
I liked this story. It wasn't a typical "love" story. It was a life is tricky, unplanned road that you hope takes you in the right direction. But that's what you want out of life right? You want to keep living only to hope that fate takes you through all the twists and turns. Because those twists and turns are what makes it "living".
Review by: Dawn
This is my first time reading anything by this author. I quickly became a fan of hers though. This book pulled me in right from the first chapter and didn't let me go till the end of the book. The emotional ride you take in this book is one that I have taken myself. So I really connected with this book on a lot of different levels.
