Editorial Reviews

Review

"For women who don't think men are romantic, Shawn Inmon's "true life love story" will prove that isn't true. If nothing else, he's the exception that proves the rule. As much as I liked the love story, I also found the nostalgia in the first part of the story almost as much of a draw." - Big Al's Books and Pals

From the Author

     Feels Like the First Time is an intensely personal book for me. 
     In 2006, I ran into Dawn, my first love, completely by accident. At the time, I hadn't seen her in 27 years. I hadn't spoken of her to anyone for almost that long. Seeing her again shook me to my foundations. I needed to talk to someone, so I reached out to my best friend and sister, Terri. As we were exchanging emails, I asked her why the events of 30 years ago had such an impact on me. It was her idea that I write out what had happened to Dawn and I "back then" and send it to her as a series of individual stories.
     Three years later, Terri called and asked me if I would do her a special favor. She had done so much for me in my lifetime, I didn't hesitate - I agreed without asking what the favor was. She surprised me when she asked me to publish the "story" I had written and sent her three years earlier. Reluctantly, I agreed, although I was hoping she would forget about such a crazy idea. Instead, less than a month later, Terri died. What had started as a favor had just become a life-promise. 
     I published a very rough draft of that story online, hoping to find critiques. Instead, I found Dawn, who I again hadn't spoken to since 2006. This book, then, is the story of a first love - the innocent flirtations, the first date, the first kiss - and the consequences in human terms when love is taken forcibly away. It is also a story of hope and the enduring power of true love. It is my story, but if you grew up in the seventies, or in a small town, or if you remember your own first love, I know you will recognize much of Feels Like the First Time.
     Thank you for taking the time to look at it, and if you decide to read it, thank you again. This book changed my life in more ways than I can count. If you read it, you will be a part of that.

I'm not usually much of a romance reader, but I absolutely loved this one. The story is touching, engaging, and well written. The characters draw you in - you really care about and root for them, and I couldn't wait to see how things turned out. The best part, though, is the fact that it's true. It gives you hope for love and life. If their fairy tale came true who knows what can happen.... I highly recommend this book if you enjoy romances, reliving a teen-hood set in the 70's, or just want a wonderful, uplifting story. I look forward to seeing where this author goes in the future!

An intense and moving true love story that will keep you up until you finish it. I laughed and cried right along with Shawn and Dawn. If you have ever been in love, lived in a small town, or tried desperately to do the right thing and failed, you will love this book!

I could not put this book down. I spent my entire Sunday morning reading it. Shawn's pure honesty and passion for his and Dawn's story comes through beautifully with his incredible writing. I experienced so many emotions while reading it. I laughed and cried with and for Dawn and Shawn. I grew up in Mossyrock and live there today, so all things, people and places were near and dear to me. Including my brother, the roadie/chef. :-) A must read for all who love a well written, honest and heartwarming love story. Thanks to Dawn and Shawn, for sharing it through Shawn's words and both of your hearts.

Shawn Inmon's "Feels Like the First Time" inspired laughter and tears alike as I read. Having grown up in a very small town myself, I related to many of the situations (and yes, challenges) that come with an environment where everyone knows everyone and tends to get into your business.

Inmon tells the story of his growing affection for the literal girl next door, Dawn, and how their relationship develops. At one point, her parents demand that he never see her again -- and he doesn't, for thirty years. The book begins with him walking away from Dawn, as directed -- and then he tells the tale of their relationship and what happened when they accidentally found one another again.

Each chapter head is a song title, which lends even more to the nostalgia (the book takes place in the late 1970s). I remembered each and every song and found that some memories of my own were triggered by the music. As a result, Inmon not only put me directly into his world but allowed me to relate it to where I was at the time of the events. Dawn and I were the same age at the time this book took place, and (like her) I had strict parents. I found myself chafed on her behalf as I remembered similar situations from my own life!

This is a true love story, one with drama and delight in equal measure. Highly recommended.

What a beautiful story and what makes it so amazing?? It is a TRUE one, and no offense Shawn, a wonderful love story written from a boy/man's perspective!! WOW!! What more can I say that hasn't already been said??

Shawn & Dawn's journey...thank you so much for sharing, it was so beautiful. I read books all the time about second chances and redemption, I have to say THIS read is my favorite for "second chances".

I too am a music lover (from the same era) that seems to put a song to the occasion and I love that music plays such an important role in this book.

This book deserves every star and more. Am going to recommend and share this title with pleasure.
