First Came Forever (The Angelheart Saga #1)
by Annie Woods
First love. A promise of forever. A lie that changes everything.
Every girl dreams at some stage of becoming a princess.
It all starts off with Erica backpacking with her friends before their final year in school. They are having a great time partying but all Erica want is to visit the Temples and see all the historical sites in Vietnam. In the end Erica leaves her friends and heads off to see all the wonders before meeting up with her friends to go back home.
While on her trip she meets Sasha, and they decide to join up and see the Temples and historical sites together. Their relationship develops and they have a wonderful time together.
Erica does not realize that Sasha is keeping a secret from her. Once she finds out, can things between them be the same.
Erica moves to America with her dad to finish her schooling and to be closer to Sasha. Erica meets some great new friends there. The school geek becomes her best friend, but does he want more from her then just being friends. She joins the school cross-country team. Tyler the sports jock likes winning everything but will Erica be able to beat him.
Erica and Sasha’s relationship throughout the story was one that was sweet but I personally was wishing for Tyler to win in the end. Sasha was a bit of a downer at times with his jealous moods. He might be the prince but he sometimes didn’t act like one.
The characters are well written and you find yourself relating to most of them easily. The plot in this book was interesting and kept me captivated and turning the pages wanting to know what was going to happen next. There were a few twists and turns that I was not expecting.
Wow, what can I say. The ending was not what I was expecting!
This book had it all, love, friendship, laughs, heartbreak and twist and turns. Is there anything else you could want? Well maybe a cliff-hanger.
Looking forward to the next book in this series, wish it was ready to read now!
I have to be honest in my opinion of this book and say for a young adult book (which is aimed at the age group of 12–18), I personally believe that some on the sexual content might be a bit much for the younger audience. Yes, don’t get me wrong I know there are a lot of kids out there, that will probably read this, but as a mother I can say that I would not want my daughters to read this at the younger age. There is M/M relationship representation in this story as well.
I would recommend this book to YA Contemporary Romance fans. But as said above I would have to say at least 16 or above due to the sexual content.
I was given a copy of this book from Annie Woods for an honest review. Which I believe I have given.
