RELEASE BLITZ, Book Review + Giveaway | FIRST COMES LOVE by Emily Goodwin (@0emilygoodwin)

Title: First Comes Love
Author: Emily Goodwin
Publication Date: February 11, 2016
Genre: A friends to lovers romance...with a twist

First comes love.
Then comes marriage.
Then comes a—

Hold up. You’re joking right? As if life works off a neat little list like that, moving down, checking things off before jumping to the next task. We’re not married. We’re not lovers. Hell, we’re hardly even friends. Noah Wilson isn’t exactly “life partner” material, and he sure as hell isn’t “father material”. He’s my older brother’s best friend, and has been off limits, sworn off, locked in the highest tower and out of reach since we met over ten years ago. With his devilish good looks, tattoos, motorcycle, and trail of broken hearts and tears, I’ve had good reason to stay away from the bad boy my mother warned me about.

Until one night. One stupid, regrettable night that changed both of our lives forever. And now I only have nine months to decide our fate, to see if Noah’s rebel heart is capable of anything more than a one night stand.

This isn’t a love story. This is a life story. And life doesn’t go according to plan.

It’s your familiar plot of the girl crushing on her brother’s best friend – but of course with a dash of surprising twists.

The first time Noah Wilson saw Lauren, he was already mesmerized by her. She was everything he wasn’t. He was nothing but trouble, at a young age, he already has a chip on his shoulder. And her? Besides being his best friend’s sister – she was too good for him. So instead of pursuing, he left her alone.

Years later, while Lauren was busy waiting for the reply to the vet school she was applying to, Noah was still busy making trouble. One bad date led them to each other’s arms one night. And that one single night have changed their lives forever. Now, it’s up to Noah to prove to Lauren that he was more than just some bad boy. That he can change, that he can be good to Lauren. Perhaps this was a blessing in disguise. Something that he had been secretly waiting for a while. It’s up to him not to ruin it.
I want an epic love, one that can stand the test of time and a villain or two, and come out stronger in the end.
Lauren was a dreamer. She wanted a prince charming and a happy ever after with someone who would slay dragons for her. Would she ever settle for this bad boy?

You can’t deny that there was already attraction brewing between the two of them. Nevertheless, they allowed their relationship to grow as they get to learn more about each other. Noah still has some issues concerning his past, his childhood and his parents – and getting him to open up was pretty much hard when it comes to this topic. But besides that issue, you can certainly feel how much he wanted her in his life, and how much he wanted to show her that he was worthy of her. That alone made me fall for him.

I enjoyed reading this story, and finished this in one sitting. Clearly, their love story didn’t really started out right, the journey was a bit bumpy ride – nevertheless it was a memorable, sweet ride that will melt hearts.
