Football is life.
Growing up, my family loved to cheer me on, and after my parents accident, I vowed to be the best I could be to honor their memory.
After a while, life starts to pile up, college, football, and helping out my brothers.
I just need a small reprieve, especially if she’s five foot five, brunette and has legs that go on for miles.
Fun is fun... Not like anyone’s going to fall in love.

Star football player..... Check.
Spoiled brat..... Check.
Just when I think I have Tyler Owen’s all figured out; he knocks me on my ass, literally.
I wasn’t expecting him to help me up, or the little shock that I felt when we touched, but then I didn’t think I’d fall in love either.

1st Time Love is a complete standalone novel with a happily ever after and no cheating.

Title: 1st Time Love
Author: Sapphire Knight


For my first books by Sapphire Knight, 1st Time Love was a great start. The story about Tyler, the football star, who can't get the small brown haired girl from his mind after knocking her on her butt and of Kayden who has her eye on the college player hoping that he'll notice her after that moment of pure electricity passed between them, captivated me. And the last thing either expected was for their fun to turn much too real.


It was a beautiful story - one that I didn't expect after hearing about Sapphire Knight's usual genre. However, like I mentioned, 1st Time Love was the perfect start to what this author has to offer because it showed me that she was able to take two characters and bring them to life and make them realistic, I absolutely enjoyed watching Tyler and Kayden find their footing around each other, it was a story that grew on me, taking roots in me the further I delved into the book. It's one author that I will look forward to reading more from in the future!
