Everyone remembers their first love

Luke Parks was mine. My first kiss, my first love and my first broken heart. He swept me off my feet with just one look and after a summer of awakening my body to passion left me broken. He was twenty-four and to a girl of sixteen, I'd never been prepared for the devastation of loving and losing so completely. Time, like all things moves on, but my heart never fully recovered from watching him drive off down that country road out of my life.

Fate. Can you really escape your past?

I grew up, finished college and moved to the big city. I thought I'd left all those memories behind, but fate can be a real bitch. I'm a journalist now and my first real assignment throws me face first back in front of Luke. He's opening a new tattoo parlor in Chicago and they want me to get his story. One look into his blue eyes and I'm remembering drinking strawberry wine and the summer nights we spent sharing everything but my virginity.

It was inevitable that he'd be my first lover.

The last summer night we'd spent together, I was determined to give him the one thing I'd kept from our relationship. At the last moment I'd balked but like I said, fate. There was no doubt in my mind that now that he was back in my life, I'd end up in his bed. My only sanity? My best friend and roommate, Jake. He's that guy that you can always depend on, the one you have to call your friend because he's just too sweet to be anything else. Fate was impossible to resist, so I could only hope when Luke destroyed my soul again, Jake would be there to pick up the pieces.

Sometimes your heart has to be broken before you can really understand love.

Meet the Author

I'm a wife and mother to five incredible kids and a former singer/songwriter. I began 'borrowing' Harlequin romances from my grandmother at eight years old and fell in love with the happily ever after stories. My career in writing started with paranormal and the Tears of Crimson vampire series, but then something changed. My muse was flooded with all these great ideas for contemporary romance and I just couldn't stop!

When I'm not being mom I write. I've always loved entertaining and doing it from the comfort of my home while still helping support a family has been the biggest blessing. 2014 started off great with Five Nights hitting the top 100 paid on Amazon and having Whore climbing the bestseller charts as well. I'm probably the most down to earth person you'll ever meet and love talking with my readers, as well as other authors. If you'd like to find out more about me, all the information is on my blog. www.tearsofcrimson.com

Thanks for all the support and most of all for proving that dreams can come true as long as you continue to work toward them.

The storyline was decent. There were some grammar errors and at least two occasions where the wrong character name was used (Jake is called Luke). The main reason I gave the story 4 stars instead of 3 was I really liked Jake's character (I was hoping Mia would get together with him even before Luke's true characteristics completely showed) and I liked what was said at the very end of the story.

The story was okay but definitely not one of Michelle's best.I'm not sure if I recommend this book or not. It's about 131 pages. But the book needs alot of editing I gave it two stars because I loved the character Jake.
