I received an eARC, from NetGalley and the publisher, in exchange for an honest review. 'First Match' by Lynne Silver is book six in the "Coded for Love Book" series. This can be a standalone book but it will reference some of the previous books. Also this book is about 70 pages so it will be a quick read. This is the story of Peter Shepard and Allison Macclesfield. Peter was born and raised on the military compound and his protective parents and commander didn't want him to leave the base. But Peter was able to talk them into letting him attend a concert where he meets Allison. A 18 year old just out of high school who wants to be a signer in a band. Peter is quickly attracted to her and she is the first female he has really interacted with. We get to watch how they have to make choices they didn't think they would have to make. This was a nice short read that you can easily read in one sitting. Please follow more reviews at the below sites: https://romancebookreviewforyou.wordp...

First Match is book 6, however it goes back in time to the very first enhanced soldier match. This is the commander Shep's story when he was just 20 years old. This is a very short novella. This one made me a little sad. Shep, being the first enhanced soldier didn't have a great life. It sounded more like he was a prisoner and then when he meets his match, Allison, he has a very short time with her. She's only 18 and wants to be a famous singer. Shep, being the honorable man that he is, didn't want to tie her down to his life so he let her go to pursue her dreams and waits for her return. I liked learning the start of the enhanced soldier program but it did make me a bit sad. ARC provided by NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

Peter grew up on the Program campus, his future mapped out for him as a soldier, before he begins basic training he decides to sample the outside world. He meets Allison and the attraction is instant. Their futures have very different paths, will love find a way? This is a fast paced read with a great story and excellent characters. A great addition to this series.

Peter was twenty years old and was at his first rock concert. But with his enhanced hearing he wasn’t really enjoying himself. Peter had been bred to defend his country , he was an enhanced soldier. He had also begged to be let off campus so he could learn about his country.s culture first hand. Then two girls offered him some cannabis. He could not admit he was from a secret military base so he had a cover story that he was a son of farmers in rural Virginia and it would cover why he was so innocent in many things.He learned one of the girls was named Allison and he asked her to help him chill out and she agreed. Peter and Allison slept together and it was great especially since Peter was a twenty year old virgin. As the month progressed Peter snuck out to see Allison and he realized she was his match. One evening the doctors called Peter to them and he found they had kidnapped Allison. Peter was really angry whereas the doctors were excited he was the first soldier to be matched. I really enjoyed this story other than I felt it was too rushed. But other than that it was great, Although hard to believe anyone would wait ten years to sleep with someone. But I did love the story and the characters especially Allison and Peter and all the twists and turns they went through. I recommend. I received an ARC of this story for an honest review.

Title: First Match - Coded for Love 6 Author: Lynne Silver Published: 5-2-2016 Publisher: Beyond The Page Publishing Pages: Unknown Genre: Erotic Romance Sub Genre: Military; Suspense; ISBN: 9781840846873 ASIN: B01F2AQY5W Reviewer: DelAnne Reviewed For: NetGalley My Rating: 4 1/2 Stars . The Program: an organization of elite soldiers with superior strength, agility, and intellect. These men put their lives on the line to execute the government’s most dangerous missions. Did you ever wonder how Shep became involved with the Program. You can now learn for yourself. Peter Shepherd was the first child born of in the genetic program. A sort of prototype. He was raised on the campus and on his first trip off on his own he meets Allison Macclesfield. He is shocked to find she is his match. Knowing this beautiful girl with dreams of her own can never be his he prepares to walk away, but the pull between them is too strong. Then the unthinkable happens and duty tears them apart. what will become of them how does Shep survive without his match? How does Allison go on with Shep? Does She achieve her dreams? First Match is the latest title in Lynne Silver's Coded for Love series, but I hope it is not her last. Ms. Silver prove short does not necessarily mean abbreviated. She managed to fit a full story in a few pages. Would I have liked more? Of Course, but I felt that way about each of the books in the series. Shep and Allison come alive for the reader. If you have not read any of the books in this series do not worry, they can be read as stand-alone book with very little difficulty. My rating is 4 1/2 out of 5 stars.

First Match was a quick, but emotion packed read. It tells the story of Shep and Allison, their whirlwind romance, the challenges they face and of course their HEA. I think that there was perhaps a little room for developing the in between years, but overall this was a great story!

I enjoyed reading about Shep and his story. Being the first genetically created man in The Program, Shep is the one they look too when they want to see what happens during certain scenarios. Never leaving the "base", Shep wants to go out and be "normal" and that is when he meets Allison. Sparks fly instantly but when she is brought in because of being a perfect match to Shep, he can't let her give up her dreams to be with him. Ten years later, their love for each other never has faltered.  This was a great prequel to the Coded for Love series. I loved the story and enjoyed getting the background on Shep. The story was well written and I couldn't put it down, I had to find out what happened. I definitely recommend this book!!
