“This was going to be the year of perfect firsts.”
Persephone (Seph) Alexander is an eighteen year old mathematical prodigy. She is attending Fulton University for two years before entering a PHD program. She’ll be there an even shorter amount of time ...more
For once I am keeping this review short and sweet, the reason being is because this is a first novel that I have read by Maya's that has a lot of ups and downs from my point of view. At first Reece is not my favorite that's for sure, and the reason being is because he is actually kind of a jerk and very cocky in the beginning. Not something I am really i ...more

“Let’s get started.” Just rip the Band-Aid off. Clearing my throat, I tapped the cards on the table. A few heads turned in our direction at the sharp, rapping sound. “When were you last tested for STDs?”
Are you ready for a spit take? Cover all electronics! Ke ...more
Maya Hughes everyone. Writing another hit sports romance series. The Kings were amazing but so are the Wolfs. Man oh man, I am going to enjoy this series so much.
Persephone is such a particular character. Math nerd, very sheltered, unexperienced and lonely. She's an angel with clipped wings at her father's hands. It was so sad to read about her wanting things for herself and being forced to do what her father wanted for her. But Seph wants to make the most of her last months ...more
Seph is a smart and sheltered college girl with very little real life experience. Everything has always been about p ...more
The Perfect First had me laughing, giddy and had me on full-on smile mode. This book was exactly what I needed. There were times when I couldn’t catch my breath because I was laughing so hard, I mean tears in my eyes snort laughing. It wasn’t pretty, but so what, who cares? And I for one was elated that there wasn’t over-the-top drama. Can I get an amen? Sometimes it’s just good to sit back without getting antsy and wondering at what ...more

Her childhood consisted of high expectations academically, advancing intellectually, but in turn, not having the fun typical childhood she ached for. So, with her future mapped out, in a few months, she's set to graduate college, she wants to experience all her firsts.....things we may take for granted, but she never was able to ex ...more
Seph - she is a genius about to start her Ph.D. at age almost nineteen. She has achieved this level of dedication through her father's control of her life. Having been homeschooled, she has never had a friend, enjoyed play dates, or lived any kind of normal social interaction with others her age. Now that she is away at college trying to finish her Masters, she is bound and determ ...more
Reece is a senior college football player that is getting ready to have everything he ever dreamed about- being d ...more
Reece and Seph are such a great couple. I enjoyed how they first met, even if I found it a bit cringe worthy when she asked him a certain personal question!!! Then I burst out laughing and continued on reading.
What I enjoyed most was how much Seph grew as a person. To some extent Reece was responsible for this, but I thought th ...more
That first glance, first touch, first butterfly and emotion in your belly, that first thought that you can't stop thinking of someone, the instant chemistry and lust and love. This book surely has all of them.
Having a very strict father, haven't let Seph live her life as a normal teen but now she is in her junior year and wants to live a bit and also has a list of first things to do and try.
Then comes Recee, a sexy student that by mistake they get to know each other thr ...more
Also, experiencing all the firsts with Seph, was like watching a child open presents at Christmas. The magic was infectious. Reading The Perfect First was infectious, unputdownable, complete romantic fun.
I happened to really loved the personalities of the heroine and hero in this book. They each excelled at certain things in life ...more
Hes confident and sexy, a one night man no strings no commitments. A glory stealer on the pitch with the Trojans trying to secure a future.
A mix up has them sat together at the same table him answering her invasive sexual questions.
Can they forget each other and move on to where they ...more
Follow awkward Persephone, or as she likes to be called Seph, as she navigates college life. She's been home schooled her entire life, never had play dates, no friends because her father ruled with an iron fist. Now she's at college, rooming with the roommate from hell. She wants to experience life, everything it has to offer, she puts an ad in the school forum for someone to take her virginity and it all goes haywire from there.
Reece is meeting ...more
Watching the unlikely friendship and relationship develop between football star Reece and quirky & nerdy Persephone (also known as Seph) was so much fun. They couldn't have been more opposite, but Reece saw something in her that drew him to her. And it wasn't your typical nerd / jock story - it really was so much more th ...more
But let me tell you, I was happily surprised by this story from Ms. Hughes.
The story was about college aged characters but there was a depth to them that you don't normally see, and I greatly appreciated.
I enjoyed Seph's maturity and her wide eyed innocence. I could empathize with her social awkwardness and wanting to be a part of something. Her earlie ...more
This slow burn friends-to-lovers romance was PERFECTION! I absolutely loved this story. The love that developed between Reece and Seph was filled with banter, fun and sexual tension that was incredibly HOT!
She was the nerdy girl. He was the jock. Their first meet up was hilarious and unforgettable. The friendship that developed was everything. He was protective, she was sheltered. He was a ladies man, she was completely clueless. They fit together like missing puzzle piece. All sh ...more
These characters are so darn lovable. Seph just completely broke my heart and had me cracking up. She is such an odd girl that I immediately loved her. She's never had any friends and she's awkward and blunt and learns everything by reading about it. I couldn't have loved her any more. I just wanted to befriend her and show her there are good, genuine people out there.
Reece is such a good guy. The fact that he meets a complete stranger and wants to save her ...more
Persephone (Seph as her friends call her) is a math genius, socially awkward person. She didn’t interact much with people, as her father raised her with an iron fist, und dictated how she has to live her life.
Reece, football player, star of the school and the girls, kind of stumbled upon Seph by accident.
This is an absolutely great story. I loved the writing, the flow of ...more
I can honestly say this story was wholly satisfying and I was sorry it ended. Seph is adorably awkward when it comes to social situations, to the extent she posts an ad on campus for someone to deflower her. Reece is the BMOC who mistaken s her for someone else. Sparks and humor, combined with sad insights into Seph's childhood, create a story hard to put down!
I absolutely loved Per ...more
