“So I met this guy. Miles Dane is the trifecta of awesomeness: he’s hot, built, and amazing in bed. The best part of it all is that he loves me. Did I mention I puked all over him when we first met? No? Well, that’s a different story. Things have finally settled down for us. We are disgustingly in love and, let’s face it, the cutest couple on earth. Dillion, Miles’ son, is ...more

Attention: First Comes Love needs a WARNING LABEL that reads: Warning this book will bring you to tears from laughing so loud. Z.B. Heller, I bow down to your awesomeness on making such a fun romantic comedy book! First Comes Love was absolutely funny, witty, sexy, and dripping with sarcasms that I LOVED every moment of this book!!


Although I didn't read the first book of Moxie, I was able to understand the gist of what I missed from the first book and in this second installment

The first book was good but this book was great, to see how Moxie and Miles relationship grew it was great to see that. They are both so funny I saw a new side of Miles that I loved he was way more funnier in this book. Dillion was so adorable he was a great character and Moxie's bestfriends where great characters too I want Ryan to have his own book. My goodness I never thought that Moxie's stepmom could get more evil. She was way worse in this book then the othe

This book was the highlight of my weekend. If you haven't read the first book I highly recommend it. I laughed out loud so many time reading this book and I just want everyone to read and experience the goings on in Moxie's life.

Moxie is dating Miles, a widowed father of a sweet boy called Dillion. Moxie used to be his kindergarten teacher and that is how they met. Miles is keen to move things forward in their relationship, he is so in love with Moxie and plans to keep her in their lives forever

The story of Moxie and Miles continues...and I laughed through most of the book!

The story starts with Moxie, Miles, Renee, Raj, Ryan and Tom enjoying some oriental dining...whereupon Tom runs headfirst into someone else he has been seeing behind Ryan's back. It gets ugly from there. Suffice it to say, Moxie refers to it as "Koi Gate." If you want to know - get the book.

Moxie is now teaching first grade, and seems a bit more irritable (than usual). Miles plans a surprise vacation for her, but th

~I was given this book from the author~
This book is more of Moxie and her crazy ride with Miles! Things have definitely changed for Moxie since the last book. Miles and her are still going strong minus moving to the suburbs. Moxie has moved up to First grade even though she wanted 5th grade. Her stepmom is still crazy and carries out her wild assumptions which in turn, gets her into a heated agruement with Moxie. Anyway, things are changing for Moxie and she's not quite ready for them. Between

I loved the first one so much I got and finished the second one!!! Moxie is back with all her pzazz! She is still effervescent and Miles and Dillion are a hoot! Ryan and Renee the besties are even greater in this one as well! Just fantastic!!!

Miles is a saint. His love for Moxie really comes through in a way that was kind of missing in the first story. We still have the outrageous characters and personalities that we know and love for the first book. The writing was great and things flowed very well. I really enjoyed getting to see things from Miles's point of view. There were a few spelling and grammatical errors but nothing major and it did not impact the story.

If you love to laugh as much as you love to read, then do yourself a favor and pick up the hilarious The Chronicles of Moxie, and follow it up with this equally funny sequel, First Comes Love. I'm not lying when I say I had hilarity-induced tears rolling down my face as I read this book. Oh, and it made my gut hurt from laughing.

Moxie and Miles haven't had the most conventional courtship. From their technicolor first meeting to the meddling of a certain monster stepmother, they've borne it all

This book is hysterical. A fantastic and perfect continuation of the first. Here Moxie is happy and with Miles. Miles is so sweet and laid back. He loves Moxie with everything and all the things he does for her are so adorable and amazing. Moxie is still living up to her name. She is as sarcastic as ever and as neurotic as ever. Now these two are about to embark on a different time in their lives. Miles wants her to be his happy ever after and Moxie is pregnant. First how the pregnancy comes to ...more

Hilarious romantic comedy

First Comes Love is the second book of the Chronicles of Moxie novels and just as hilarious as the first.

Moxie, the ever witty Jewish non-princess, and Miles her number one man, continue their never-a-dull-moment relationship in this installment of the Chronicles of Moxie. Endearing secondary characters, Renee and Ryan, Moxie’s best friends, are also along for the ride. Each one of these characters add to the humor in this book with their wit and loyal friendship.

If you haven’t read ZB Heller’s debut, The Moxie Chronicles you need to stop right here and go #OCTB. First Comes Love is the zany follow-up, which opens up with Moxie and Miles settling blissfully into their newly minted couple-dom. BAHAHAHAHA. No. In the Moxie-verse, bliss is a relative term – there are some hilarious and game changing developments in this book.

I loved the we get an alt-POV from Moxie and Miles. Because Miles? Oh, damn – he wears his whippedness like a badge of honor. His comp

I love to read a good book that will make me laugh, and First Comes Love fits into that description. When I read The Chronicles of Moxie I loved it, and I knew that this new installment wouldn't disappoint either. Both books will make you laugh a lot.

Moxie and Miles are such a great couple. In this book they go through some changes in their relationship, while still having to deal with Moxie's evil stepmother. Moxie is such a great character and

Book two picks up right after book 1, pretty seamlessly. Miles is still the sexy alpha dirty talker who wets her panties. Moxie is still the smart mouthed snarky teacher she has always been.
With all new relationships there is the "honeymoon" phase, but then you move into the ups and downs of a relationship. Add in the sass of her gay friend Ryan and bestie Renee and it is a great combo. I liked the normal progression of the relationship and how everyday fears to not ellude Moxie. I like that sh

Miles is still the charmer, "well, maybe after I drain my pip, the snake would still like the play," I whispered into her ear and nipped her earlobe." Dillon I loved that little boy even more in this book, he's quite informative, "I just heard Uncle Ryan whisper it to Aunt Renee. I thought you'd want to know just in case you did eff up and didn't realize it." Miles he's um... willing to go the length for his woman, "I was pi**ed I had to stand there with my balls overheating in this costume! At ...more

I love RomCom books. They're my absolute faves. God bless Ms. Heller for creating Moxie Summers! Our girl is back & sassy as ever in this hilarious follow up to The Chronicles of Moxie. She & Miles are settling in as a couple when they experience a few speed bumps in the road known as life. Moxie deals with them in her usual no-holds-barred fashion complete with a thesaurus of swear words and possibly a few death threats. Come see how this gorgeous couple deals with these recent events and enjoy ...more

So here goes. growth and a clean slate should come with a warning label. I fell in love with Moxie in her chronicles but in this book she held nothing back. In true Moxie fashion we got to the root of her problems that not only ended a relationship but also allowed another to rebuild and regroup.

You still got your humor and more additions to the family we all love but ZB Heller also delivered with bonds, meetings, and open closets. I know there is more to come because I wasn't finished with my

I don't even know where to begin with this book. I adore Moxie. Everything that comes out of her mouth brings a smirk to my face or forces a giggle snort to erupt from me. Z.B Heller has easily become my favorite rom-com author, hands down. I love the way serious issues were tackled, how loving Miles was but he knew how to be there for Moxie when she needed it. Martha needs a good C*?! Punt. My god that woman. This story and it's crazy cast of characters brought out so many emotions in me, that ...more

If you want to read a book that is quick, funny and has a main character with a outspoken personality then this is the book for you!

Moxie definitely did not have a filter on anything that came out of her mouth. Plenty of times I found myself laughing out loud just because of the outrageous things that she said.

This is a love story; the story starts with Moxie and Miles already in a relationship which was a refreshing change. Moxie finds out so news and she doesn't handle it tell

Omg...the first book was awesome. I laughed my ever-loving ass off. But First Comes Love: A Chronicles of Moxie Novel was even BETTER! I fell head over heels for Miles (even if he has goat hairs in his nose...bahahahaha) and Moxie was amazing! One of my favorite heroines ever! I want so bad to talk about a part that made me cry like a baby, and then the part after that gave me crazy warm fuzzies and brought tears to my eyes. I'm a bit in awe of the author for this story.

They give us another hilarious ride on the crazy train, also known "As the world according to Moxie" Moxie is given an unexpected surprise..she's pregnant.

First Comes Love reminded me how much I loved Moxie, Miles and Dillon and made me fall in love with them all over again! Moxie with her crazy mouth and over active imagination. Miles and his love for his family, his dirty mouth and innuendos. And Dillon, what can I say? I love that he is 7 going on 70. Moxie and Miles face new obstacles in this next chapter of their lives. ZB had me laughing out loud and even had me in tears at one point. This is a truly great book and I can't

Ladies, get your boxes of kleenex ready . Z.B. Heller has once again captured my heart in this deliciously romantic love story of Moxie and Miles. Their story continued and along with their beautiful story, their little family became larger. Moxie had me smiling, sniffling and cheering all at the same time. This is a wonderful story of LOVE all around, some hate and definitely a very happy ending. Reminds me of a real life situation as it seemed to be so real. Definitely a must

I really, really enjoyed First Comes Love....This is a refreshing read, I laughed out loudon many occasions. Moxie is a BIG, she is no waif, thin frail woman.....she reminds me of "I am woman, hear me roar"....she is loud, sarcastic and real.....and she is loved by those dearest to her....thankfully in this book, she puts her step-monster Martha in her place and on her ass...literally.

I loved it! First Comes Love is a hilariously funny yet amazingly touching read. With this follow up Mrs Zeller didn't disappoint at all!
The only missing star (which in reality is only half a missing star) is because of the actual grammar and spelling nazi living inside of me. There was some editing mistakes that made my right eye twitched as much as reading about Martha the step-monster!
Still a book I warmly recommend when in need of cheering or big laughs!
