            Tara Hinkson has no time for herself, as she works and takes care of her mother who is brain damaged from an auto accident. Her job as a hair stylist doesn’t pay enough for extras with the cost of care for her mother while she’s at work. The only fun she allows herself is being part of the Tombstone acting group.

            Soon after she returns to her shift at the salon, her first love, Josiah Reardon, walks into the shop ten minutes before closing. After the two had been intimate from the time Tara was fifteen, and Josiah was sixteen, he up and left for college at the end of her junior year without further contact. Now, he’s back in town working with the same acting group, and their chemistry is as strong as ever. Unable to deny the attraction, they tentatively make a go of it again. But Tara finds it hard to trust him after what he put her through, while Josiah remembers Tara wanted nothing to do with God and Christianity. And though both are Christians, they find it difficult not to stumble into their old ways again.

            First Love is a fantastic story depicting the rocky journey that two Christians embark upon when they have been intimate before, and determine to do what’s right and honor God. The road is extremely bumpy.

            Anyone who has read other works by Michelle Sutton knows they will get a down-to-the-nitty-gritty story, with raw-truth characters. Michelle pulls no punches in describing those steamy scenes that are essential to its authenticity, but are in no way gratuitous.

            This book is not only entertaining, but is useful as a tool for older teens to learn why they need to keep themselves pure before God; it also shows the consequences of giving in to the body’s desires before marriage, and how God can turn them into blessings when we begin to be obedient to his commands. I highly recommend First Love.
