Reunions are hell. I’ve managed to avoid three of them, and I liked high school. I was luckier than some – no need to pretend I invented post-its, like Romy – or was it Michele? My claim to fame was being voted half of the “Most Affectionate Couple,” along with my future husband.
EXCLUSIVE EXCERPT & CONTEST TODAY!!! Read an Exclusive Excerpt from "Feels Like the First Time" here !“Reunited, And it Feels So . . . Bad?”
Even if reunions make you break out in a rash, Tawny Weber’s red-hot-and-romantic “Feels Like the First Time” reminds us that revisiting the past can also bring scorching surprises – and who doesn’t wonder about the guy who got away?
Zoe Gaston’s peers voted her Most Likely to Die a Virgin, and ruined her life. As the “pudgy-cheeked brainy Goth-girl,” her only real friend at Central High had been Dexter Drake, a younger guy as studiously hopeless as she was. The football jock she’d had a crush on was the source of her humiliation – their theme song could have been “The Way We Weren’t.”
Going to her reunion has as much appeal as chewing on glass, but Zoe’s brother needs to contact the mysterious creator of a hot new video game. There’s a rumor “Gandalf” is one of her old classmates – and one of the characters in the game looks suspiciously like a sexy version of Zoe’s high school self. Reunion? Game on!
Dex appears, morphed from geeky to gorgeous, and Zoe is tempted to play. But she can’t forget her hunt for Gandalf. Is he the football hero? The masked man who sweeps her into his arms? Or could it be that Gandalf isn’t there at all?
Caught up in a torrid masquerade, beguiled by bedroom eyes and a stranger’s seductive ways, Zoe is distracted from her goal. It should have been her worst week ever, but she’s having the time of her life.
Tawny Weber’s name on the cover guarantees a blistering hot read, and “Feels Like the First Time” is no exception. It’s not just flash-and-sizzle, though – this book has plenty of heart, too. Zoe’s lusty, go-for-it exterior hides the soul of a teenager who was labeled a loser and has spent the rest of her life trying to convince herself it isn’t true. We feel her outrage and cheer on the dashing hero who helps Zoe embrace her true self.
In Weber’s dexterous hands, the familiar tale of old friends and new lovers becomes brand new, and all the more reason to -- Buy the book!
