I received this book for free in exchange for an honest review.
Andrew Beckwith has already devoted his life to one girl—and as far as he’s concerned, she’s all he needs. The rough-around-the-edges bad boy left his reckless ways behind six years ago when his daughter Bell was born. To the female population’s dismay, he’s unapologetically single. When Bell’s mother walked out on them years ago, he vowed never to let another woman close enough to hurt them again.Review:
Amelia Van Ecken isn’t just another woman. She’s an independent, smart, and savvy businesswoman who doesn’t have time for sex, much less love. In the midst of a drawn-out, bitter divorce, all she wants is to bury herself in work. But when sharp-tongued Amelia and stubborn Andrew cross paths, sparks fly—and burn. Two things are obvious in an instant: they want each other, and they’re from different worlds. It’s the perfect formula for an off-the-charts one-night stand. After all, it’s not as if opposites ever attract.
Alright, so I was first introduced to Andrew Beckwith in the book Slip of The Tongue. That book completely ripped my heart out but Andrew played a very small role in the story. I was so insanely excited when Jessica Hawkins announced that she was giving him his own book. Even with such a small role in the previous novel, he was easy to fall for. I mean, what's better than a badass, sexy man that happens to be great in the bedroom and is an awesome father to top it all off? Yeah, he was easy to fall for
In this story, we also get to learn a little more about another character that made an appearance in Slip of The Tongue, Amelia, who is the boss of Andrew's sister, Sadie. I admit that I wasn't crazy about her before reading this book but it was so great to learn more about her character and begin to understand exactly why she has the personality that she does. She was a much more likeable character than I had originally given her credit for and it didn't take me long to fall in love with her as well.
The First Taste was an amazing book. It was a beautiful story of two people with nothing in common but their broken hearts and how they manage to find love and happiness in the most unlikely of places. I absolutely loved this book and I couldn't get enough of Andrew and Amelia.
Rating: 5 Stars.
