Ah Calla Lilies on the cover. Now I’m not gonna say that it reminds of a COCK, but it does make me think of SEX.

How appropriate that these fabulous authors who know a thing or two five about sex scenes put that on their book cover!

Anthology: 21 stories.

FOR THE FIRST TIME is an ANTHOLOGY collection of published-for-the-first-time-shorts by a plethora of incredibly talented and highly rated authors. Twenty-one to be exact.

HOLLYWOOD DIRT is one of two books that made it to the very TOP of my favourite read list of 2015. Cole and Summer won my heart as they navigated their way towards love with their flirtatious banter, sexiness and comedic timing drawing me to the warmth of their love story. In FOR THE F

For the First Time is a collection of Twenty-One Brand New Stories of First Love. I was truly ecstatic to dig into this bundle of goodness! Alessandra Torre, Sarah Castille, C.J.

So far I read only a few stories from this collection of short stories, and it was my first such a publication, but it really is great. It allowed me to quickly meet new authors. In addition, good to have such a collection at a time when you do not have time to read full-length book. I will write my impressions about the stories that I've read so far, but it's very possible that I'll be back to add something further.

I gave this anthology 3 stars overall, because out of a possible 105 stars (5 stars possible for each of the 21 stories) this anthology accumulated 56 stars (53%).

Each story in this anthology has a little synopsis before the story actually starts. I really appreciated it, especially since a lot of readers have certain triggers, and it would be super helpful if you were planning on skipping some of these stories. The masochist in me made me finish all twenty one, including the ones I assumed woul

For the First Time is a fantastic anthology featuring 21 different authors. I absolutely loved this anthology, for a few reasons. First it’s a great way to try new authors. It’s also fantastic for catching up with some of my favorite characters. Most importantly, it’s freaking hot as hell!

The first thing I did when I started this one was catch up with Summer and Cole in Sole by Alessandra Torre. I was so excited to see that we would get more from one of my favorite couples. It has been three yea

"Sole" by Alessandra Torre

description

It was nice to revisit with Summer and Cole and see how their family has grown three years after Hollywood Dirt ended. While Summer’s life-style changed considerably, it was comforting to know she remains a humble woman with southern values. I like how the title of this extended epilogue includes a Hollywood trend of naming couples: Summer + Cole = Sole. This short will warm your heart and make you swoon for Cole all over again.

This anthology is crammed full of morsels to devour, but I admit that I'm partial to a select few. We all have our idols to worship, right? ;o)

For me, that's primarily Skye Warren. She writes with so much soul, you can taste it even after a few sentences. I already knew the story as I'd read Better When It Hurts, as dark and painful as a romance comes. Yet reading first-hand how Blue and Hannah's drama started was too much of a lure to me to deny myself.

And here I am. Again, I'm soaking in the s

4.25 stars!

This rating and review is only for Alexa Riley's story.

Quick, smutty, sweet story with a fantastic alpha hero who wouldn't touch another woman while he searched for the heroine for 10 years. LOVE him. LOVE that. As usual, I love Alexa Riley's set-ups and romance ideas.

Heartbreak by Skye Warren.
What can I say about this one??? We are taken back in time, back before Better When It Hurts, when Hannah first met Blue. Dark and gritty, the story of Hannah's love with Blue unfolds as we are taken back in time. Their first meeting brings a new light on how their story began.

Review for His First and Only by Alexa Riley
omg so perfect! 5 stars for the hero! 4.25 stars because I need more it was too short! I absolutely love this and had it been a full novel 5 stars for sure!:)
safety gang safe!!!! seperated for 10 years and they still saved themselves for each other!

I will continue to read others (maybe not the menages ) but couldn't wait to read this one :)

I've been thinking about how I could do reviews of short stories written by so many awesome authors. Newly receiving an ARC with little time left, I decided as I read I will just add little tidbits of what I finish under this instead of individual reads.

Naughty Wishes~~ SARAH CASTILLE *4 STARS*
"I'm just here to have fun"

Mrs. Castille... leaves me asking "Where's my coupon?"

After three-years, the story continues with the "IT" couple of Hollywood, Cole Masten & Summer Jenkins, as they prepare for the celebration of their daughter's birthday. With complete entourage from the pages of Hollywood Dirt and yes, Cocky is still alive and kicking.

Though this is a short story, Alessandra Torre never fails to give us a HOT scene between Cole & Summer. Which I love, by the way! *smile* Thank you for letting us peek into the lives of Cole & Summer once more.

I figure I'll make a note about each story as I read them, so far as a whole the book is definitely worthy of 5 stars!

Sole by Alessandra Torres- This can be read by itself, but it's about the couple from Hollywood Dirt which I haven't read yet. But reading this story bout a birthday party they have for one of their children only served to make me want their WHOLE story and to know how they got their HEA in the first place!

If you're looking for a quick steamy fix, For the First Time is the perfect pick-up-put-down read; with some great stories, it has authors both familiar and new-to-me and I've already been on a bit of a one-click spree.

This would be a tome if I tried to review each story, so I'm not. I read each one and there were those I loved and those that weren't my cup of tea. But the beauty of this collection is that there's something in here for everyone, and I've picked a couple that stood out for me.

What an amazing group of authors and for just 99c!

I read both Dead of Eve and Blood of Eve (5 Star story) in 2015. These books crossed over several genres and really took me by surprise. So I was happy to hear Pam Godwin was writing a short in this anthology, I've been missing these characters. I jumped straight into Heart of Eve by Mrs. Godwin. Heart of Eve revolves around Roark and Eve's relationship and ultimately their first time together. Just like the full length novels mentioned there wa

This is a perfect book of short stories to have on your kindle to dip into between reads I think. I read the Alexa Riley story - not her smuttiest I'm sad to say but still gloriously hot - the Alessandra Torre extended epilogue to Hollywood Dirt, the Kim Karr (I'd forgotten how much I love her writing) and a few others and I've enjoyed the variety, the romance, the crazy insta love and lust and the angst.

Each story in this is a short story, but the ones I've read so far still packs a punch and
