This book, this series I guess just isn't for me. I can overlook editing issues, but I never really got a grasp on the story. Some questions were answered, but each and every aspect of the storyline feels incomplete to me. Why did Angel try to kill herself? What is Romans deal? Is he in the mob? What? Kevin is the only one I can get some kind of reading from, but even that is jumbled mess. Angel is probably my least favorite character, so weak, so easily manipulated, so easy. I never knew anybody to cry so much! For me, this book would have been better if it had more clarity, instead I'm left wondering what I just read.

***WARNING*** This is NOT a standalone novel, in order to fully understand this story you will need to read Not At First prior to reading Always At First

Always At First picks up where Not At First left off. Angel is now under the watchful eye of Roman. Roman will do anything to keep his woman, even if that means eliminating the competition Kevin. Kevin will do anything for Angel, he's loved her for a long time. He's loved her from afar and just when he has her in his arms, everything goes to hell and back and she ends up in the clutches of the enemy.

Roman is a domineering man who wants everything done his way and he'll do anything to get it. Make matters worse, Angel finds out she's pregnant with Roman's baby. Now Angel knows she must give up her love for Kevin in order for him to remain safe. Issue is, no matter how much she tries, she cannot let Kevin go, she loves him too much. She knows she should give him up and let him go, but the heart wants what the heart wants, and her heart wants Kevin.

It was easier for a while being out of the country, but the second they return, Angel is right back in the path of Kevin and he will do anything to get her back and keep her safe even if it puts himself in harms way. Told in dual points of view and the reader given a view into the past, this story is heartfelt and will pull at the strings of your heart and will make you fall even more in love with these characters than before.

I was always a fan of Kevin and Angel's love story. Phalla gives us a whole new view into the characters that we have grown to love and adore and even gives a better understanding into Roman.

I read the first book because it sounded interesting and was free. I read the second because I was hoping it would answer all of my questions Not only did it not but neither the writing nor the characters behavior improved. This review is for both books.

Where do I start? It is hard to root or care for any of the main characters when no one is faithful. The title of the book is ironic because no one is put first nor an only. Angel slept with both men and neither could keep in the pants screwing other women while sexing her. I think I was most disappointed in Kevin who I initially thought was a decent, loyal guy but I was wrong. He claimed to love Angel beyond all reason but screwed Angel's roommate so loudly that Angel had to leave her bedroom. He also screwed other girls. If that is his idea of love then it is meaningless.

The writing and grammar never improved even though one book was published in 2013 & the other in 2014.

Instead of the love triangle being resolved by Angel, one of the men walked away because he did not want her anymore. Talk about a let down. Some of my questions were never answered. I do not believe the HFN ending will last because one or both will smex another person when times get rocky. There is no way I will be reading anymore books in this series. I suffered enough reading these two.

I had a really hard time to try to like Angel. Really hard time. I despised her weakness. As for Roman, zero compassion. One expects, even requires imperfection from a character. But when their faults are so utterly extreme, it's difficult to like them. Otherwise a good read.

"Let the fear you have be the push you need to fight harder for what you want."

When I finished Not at First a few months back, I was left with quite a few questions. Thankfully, I got the answers I wanted from Always at First. Throughout the book, we are being taken back and forth through time in both Angel and Kevin’s points of view, and while it could get a little confusing if you aren’t paying attention, it really helps us learn what Kevin and Angel went through growing up and how they got to where they are today. If you haven’t read Not at First, you may want to before picking this one up…

The book picks up with Angel under Roman’s control (if you haven’t read my other review, I really don’t care for Roman at all). Angel’s heart belongs to Kevin, but Roman says if she doesn’t forget about him, that could cost Kevin his life. In order to save him, Angel finally decides to give in to Roman and pretend to love him, but it’ll never be true…or will it? Despite how much she hates him, she can’t deny what feelings he evokes from her body. And under all that evil? Somewhere deep down is a loving, sweet, caring, protective side that she brings out of him, and it could make her love him.

We finally get in Kevin’s head and learn more about him – where he came from, his life growing up, how he got started working for Angel’s dad, and how long he has actually been in love with her. His sister tried to talk him out of caring for Angel, Angel’s dad forbid him to even look at her, but he learns that you can’t help who you love. He had several “run-ins” with Angel over the course of several years, each time breaking his heart, but he still couldn’t let her go. Now he’s determined to get her back, but will it cost him his life? Does she even want him?
