An unbelievable, hot, lust-filled first time.

Connor hadn't intended on hooking up with anyone at the beach. But ever since his girlfriend had dumped him a week ago, he'd decided to stop lying to himself. So when Jake, the hot and sexy dj from the club 'Crush' started cruising him, Connor knew this was going to be the guy. Jake was going to be his first.

Wanted to give it a try to a short one, now that I'm more at eased with the gender... and I have to say that It was pretty good, more acceptable than the others I read at first.
It was kind of funny, given that looked like everybody knew his preferences except by him, who was still struggling to come to terms with his sexuality... but at the end... he embrace it fearcely haha.
Liked it
what I didn't like( 'cause I'm not sure a guy would like to be called like that) was the calling names from Jake

Pretty much just a short porn scene worth passing up.

For such a short story, parts of Connor's first time were hot, and parts just didn't really do it for me. It was ridiculous that Connor "knew" that he could trust Jake to not take being rough too far just from the little contact they had, and the vibes that Jake gave off. But overall, it was a fun, sexy short story.

More of a short story than a novel, My First But Not My Last is a fun beach romp and a fab way to end the summer! Conner's upset about his girlfriend (she dumped him), and he's so not interested in sun and fun. But then Jake walks into the picture. 'Nuff said right then and there. A little experimenting leads to a lot of great sex. Wish it would have been longer, but it wet my appetite for more of Mr. Black!

2.5 stars rounded up for being free

It surprised me a little that the story isn't much longer than the blurb and contains just about as much information.

It was still a fun read, although I really wish it had been longer so we could have seen more of Connor's relationship with his brother and how it changes after what Connor reveals that day at the beach.

cute story. Glad Conner came to terms with his sexuality.

Short sexy and to the point

Not a bad short gay erotica. Nothing all that unique, but it suited my mood at the moment. Be aware of what you will get before you buy. If you want a full romance, this is not it. If you want a sexy erotic short story that wastes no time getting to the point (quite literally) then I recommend it. Just don't expect it to be something it isn't.

This was just what I was looking for. It was hot. But yet still kept me captivated with a decent story. And not bad at all for a free book on Amazon.
well, it is hot, but seemed like i was watching a detailed writing scene of a porn.

This is short, gay erotica pure and simple. A guy gets dumped by his girlfriend and finds himself exploring his gay desires going all in.

A short story...not a book!

Basically one sex scene between a couple of guys who meet on a beach after seeing each other in a club.

It was there all along

This didn't happen quickly for Conner, he knew he was gay for a long time. His girlfriend was a ruse and just a habit. When Jake comes into his life he realizes that it's time to grab what would really make him happy. All the toys can not replace the feel for the real thing with a really hot sexy man. Now he gets to live out his own porn. They were both decent stories and it's free.

Super short

This wasn't a bad story but super's about a recently broken up Conner from his long time gf but the his brother and friends get him to come with them to the beach but after a bit he sees the really hot guy that he was check out when his gf broken up with him, so Connon and Jake go hangout but this.vs will be come intense with virgin Conner.

I liked the basic concept for this story but felt it could have been drawn out more and not rushed. I always find it hard to believe when characters have sex yet not all the parties involved know the other's name till afterwards.
Way too short. Not another jump right to the sex story. Could have benefited by being longer and seeing MORE than Connor's first time with a guy. Speaking of, being the first, I expected more prep even with personal play when alone. It wasn't non-existant just skimmed over a bit.

This was a story about a guy whose secretly gay. He meets a boy on the beach and they have sex.
I thought this was okay, but I didn't love it.
I really like this story and want to know how it end, but probably wait until the whole story bundle come out and then buy it so I can read them all together.... can't wait!
