It was completely forbidden, and yet, I couldn’t stop myself.

But I wasn’t alone.

Everyone crushed on our high-school coach back in the day.

Strong. Dominant. Hot as sin.

And completely off limits. Or he was back then.

Now I’m finally grown up, and I’ve come back home.

Life feels directionless, but one thing is dead center.

My old crush.

Now I’m finally old enough to do some

Just rushed

Didn’t enjoy the book. Every part of it felt rushed and not put together. I understood the romance part but it felt like characters were thrown together for a quick story.

Ms. Chloe Morgan has completely captured my heart with her latest release.   My First Crush might be an older man romance but these two amazingly crafted characters are so uniquely beautiful together. 

Marley returns back to her small town home after discovering that life in the big city isn't for her.  Not only did she miss her Family but also her best friend, Parker.   Parker and Marley grew up together and as they grew, so did Marley's love for Parker's Father, Shawn.    Upon seeing Marley, at

Oh my star's! Wow! Talk about a ride on the wild side. Chloe definitely threw caution to the wind with her no holds barred, no pulling punches and take no prisoners attitude that really brings this bad boy roaring to life spectacularly. A whirlwind of emotions and events that feed from the exposure and promises made pull you deeper in this raging storyline and hard hitting plot that takes things a step further. Throw in all the drama, uncertainty and a little intrigue and y

Marley’s been away from her hometown for several years and done a lot of growing up in that time. When she encounters Coach Shawn at dinner with her best friend, she realizes that the crush she had on him has turned into something bigger and more powerful. And even though they both try to resist, their chemistry is too strong to deny. This is one of the lighter, sweeter takes I’ve seen on falling for the best friend’s father. I think that’s what I liked most about this book. While there’s some d ...more

Hot Romance!
My First Crush by author Chloe Morgan is a modern day, small town Texas romance. It involves an older man, high school coach, Shawn and Marley, best friend of coach’s daughter. They haven’t seen each other in a couple of years and when they do there is hot chemistry that they instantly act upon. The heat remains high in this short storyline. It held my interest throughout so I’m definitely recommending this for your reading enjoyment and fun.

I know it's been done before, but Chloe nails the older man/best friends father taboo romance...pun intended! Marley has had a crush on Coach Shawn since high school. Being away at college may have made her forget for a bit, but the minute she steps into her best friend's childhood home it all comes back! Shawn has given up on women after his wife took off. His life was simple, until he gets a look at Marley all grown up! This is touching, sweet and steamy...the perfect combination!

I'm giving this book a total of 3.5 stars. I felt that this book was a bit like the other best friend dad books that I have read lately which surprised me from this author. I just didn't like it as much as this authors other books that I have read recently. Having said that, just because it wasn't my favorite doesn't mean it won't be yours. Please read all reviews as well as the authors synopsis to see if this book is the right one for you.

My First Crush by Chloe Morgan has written a great sexy and exciting story. In this story you have Shawn aka coach and Marley his daughter’s best friend. When these characters come face to face after a few years they are both taken aback by their instant attraction to one another. But their are a few obstacles in their way that sends these two on an emotional ride, well worth the read.

I was hoping to like this one, but all it was was sex. There was absolutely nothing showing any sort of relationship between the father and the younger woman. They just made eye contact and then had sex. Ridiculous. Poor character development and plot development. This read more like an outline than an actual story.

A great read about two people who love with no perceived notions of any barriers - not even age. Beautiful and sexy story of Shawn who notices for the first time his daughters best friend who moves back home from college - but she notices him too! Marley has always had a crush on the handsome Coach.

Gotta Love A HEA

A very well written easy to read, unexpected romance. Drop in a heap of drama, and a healthy dose of lust, mix it all together, and eventually you’ll end up with your own HEA. I really enjoyed reading this book!

How could you not fall in love with the coach - I think we all do it especially if he's cute - but we all don't get the coach when we move back to our hometown. Marley and Shawn have a lot of hurdles to overcome before they can get a happily ever after.
I think it could have been a better book if it was longer. I didn't get to know or even like the characters, it was really quick. They meet again, sex, sex, the end. This is my first book by Chloe Morgan I like her style of writing just wish there was more to the book.

The blurb drew me in
The characters and backstory were on point and yes I know it’s a short story but everything was rushed .
The couple had little to no chemistry and the sex scenes were meh .
I really wanted to love this book

I kind of liked the author’s writing style but just a bit more character development would have been great. Overall I’d probably read more by her—I’ll be sure to put her books on my “I need something short and sexy” shelf.

Never too old to have that first crush and romance. A quick thought provoking story

Just okay.

Timeline of plot unclear. Unbelievable and unrealistic characters. Overly simplistic conflict resolution. Other authors do this trope much, much better.
