When I first started reading this story my only concern was the age of the characters. I tend to prefer older characters I can relate to and at the ripe old age of 28 I hardly can relate to high school students. I wanted so badly to love First Kiss but the age thing kept holding me slightly back from full on falling in love with it. By the end of the book I was head over heels for the romance and I felt this new age Romeo and Juliet connection to the story. Aly is the younger girl who knows she is in love and Jake is the older boy who is utterly drawn to Aly's innocence. The tale becomes them against the world and I loved it.
I couldn't stop myself from devouring First Kiss in less than two days. First Kiss is an emotional journey of first love and first heartbreak. I found myself balling my eyes out while reading this book, which was a difficult task all in itself.
Now here is the thing I feel like Skid Out is a tale out slightly before it's time literally by a few months. The novella debuted just before this new craze of New Adult broke on the scene and I think if this story was New Adult it would blow stories like Thoughtless, and Beautiful Disaster out of the water. That's right I said it! This novel is currently being marketed as a mature YA, and it is, I recently learned that the series will be in the NA genre by the next book.
So watch out Jamie Mcguire Travis might have some competition from Jake.Read more ›
I've literally been waiting on First Kiss for over a year. I read the prequel, Skid Out, in March of 2012, and loved it. I loved Jake, loved Alyssa, and was so, so excited --and anxious-- to see their new and fragile relationship develop.
Take away the fact that Jake is an up-and-coming musician, and First Kiss is essentially the story of a first love. Now that's not to say that Jake's music doesn't play a role in the story and relationship --it does-- but for me, the focus was simply Jake and Alyssa. And that was more than enough considering that she is only fourteen (I think) and Jake is eighteen. And here's what the author did so well: she portrayed all of the emotions, questions, frustrations, elation, confusion, and heartache of a first love. The story took me back to that age and reminded me of those feelings of being so overwhelmed by feelings that are hard to name, much less to control and express. This aspect of First Kiss was so well done.
First Kiss, as you might be able to tell from what I've given thus far, is a character-driven story, and not plot-driven. Other than a few parties and the beginning of the school year, there is not a lot that drives the story forward, other than the impending pull of Jake's career. So given that, the story does tend to focus on every little moment with Jake and Alyssa, and their feelings that come from that. When you take into account that First Kiss is nearly five hundred pages (including Skid Out) the story does become a bit long and drawn out. I did feel that the book could have been shorter, and still have the same impact. But still, I did truly appreciate the honest, not overly romanticized, portrayal of teens and relationships.Read more ›
Jake is overcome with feelings for a girl he has known his whole life and he couldn't be happier. Every second not spent practicing or preforming with his band is spent with Aly. And no matter how cliquish it sounds...Aly makes him want to be a better person. But while surrounded in their little bubble they don't notice the outside forces that are coming at them until it's almost too late. Relationships will be tested and families torn apart. Sacrifices will be made in order to make things right once again. But in the end one question will have to be answered...was it all worth it?
There was a lot of dialogue between characters and usually I find that a bit annoying. But I think with this book it was necessary to establish that history between the two MC's and to back up their growing relationship. Also thought the author would jump from one scene to the next without any type of warning and I would be left a little confused for a moment. But I did have an advanced reader copy, so edits were still to be had.Read more ›
