Football is life.
Growing up, my family loved to cheer me on, and after my parents accident, I vowed to be the best I could be to honor their memory.
After a while, life starts to pile up, college, football, and helping out my brothers.
I just need a small reprieve, especially if she’s five foot five, brunette and has legs that go on for miles.
Fun is fun... Not like anyone’s going to fall in love.
Star football player..... Check.
Spoiled brat..... Check.
Just when I think I have Tyler Owen’s all figured out; he knocks me on my ass, literally.
I wasn’t expecting him to help me up, or the little shock that I felt when we touched, but then I didn’t think I’d fall in love either.
1st Time Love is a complete standalone novel with a happily ever after and no cheating.

5 Stars from Brianna!
Oh my goodness.... this book was so so good! We always promo for Sapphire Knight so I'm fairly familiar with her books yet I've never read anything by her... until now. Just wow, not what I was expecting from her (because I hear she is pretty kick ass in mafia and motorcycle club romances) in the best kinds of ways possible.
1st Time Love was a sweet and sexy college sports romance that literally captivated me cover to cover. I devoured this amazing book and now I'm dealing with a massive hangover from Tyler and Kadence. These two, gash, simply amazing. The roller coaster ride with all those first love feels... swoon swoon swoon!
Tyler is a cocky football player with the world at his feet. He might be a good ol Southern boy but he's a guy who doesn't do commitments... his mind only focused on football... until she crashes into his life and gives it not purpose and direction, that is if she'll take a chance on him.
Kadence is a sweet, shy and incredibly smart girl who likes to read, keep to herself, and collects book boyfriends.... basically my girl crush times ten. But when she crashes into Tyler... she'd not interested in" " Freight Train".... she's heard the stories and knows his reputation... to bad her body and heart disagree.
These two are pulled two each other, despite what they think they want. Their connection and chemistry... risky undeniable. I loved their banter... and they moved cautiously but not too slow. Everything about them was just.... perfect *sigh*.
I am stoked for this series to continue with Clyde and Nate... though I'm secretly hoping *fingers crossed* run across those football boys again too because they deserve a "pretty girl" thrown their way ;)
I highly recommend this book.
4 Stars from Renee!
I was pulled right into this short story. The story has laughs, sweet love, secrets, and football.
This is Kadence and Tyler’s story. Tyler is all about football all day every day. Kadence is a book nerd. She hates the spotlight and Tyler is in the spotlight all the time. He is smitten from the start. She is a challenge. They have chemistry but it will take a lot of convincing on his part to get her to be with him. Can he overcome all her hiding to get her not only to open up and be with him but to allow him into her world? Can these two oh so different people make it being together?
I loved these characters and the side characters. I felt I could connect with the characters and the story was a great read.
I highly recommend this book.
