A love story sure to melt your heart…

I’m not a mahoosive lover of Sports Romance. My one and only exception to this is J. Nathan’s For Finlay – a couple of months down the line and I’m still oooooooh-ing and aaaaaaaaah-ing over. Swooning like a little girl over their favourite popstar. It’s sickening – I know, but whatevs! Anywho, when I read the blurb for Sapphire Knight’s 1st Time Love I don’t know what came over me but I just had to have myself a slice of that pie! And, I’m so glad that I didn’t let the sports theme put me off, I really REALLY liked this book. It threw me for miles. Maybe I’m becoming more of a Sports Romance fan… but, I don’t think so. This story was just genuinely good. It was a massive bowl of my favourite comfort food and a large glass of wine… it just made me tingly in all the good ways.

I found the characters really stocky and well-rounded. They’re refreshing and their chemistry really draws you in. Ty has overflowing buckets of charisma that’ll have you giggling like a little school girl in front of her crush, and even though he and Kadence are polar opposites they meld so beautifully. Their romance is a testament to the whole ‘opposites attract’ malarkey, however, I’m still of the belief that their similarities were what bonded them to one another and solidified their feelings.

1st Time Love is an earnest demonstration of Sapphire Knight’s splendidly impeccable writing skill. I don’t know how she does it, but she draws you hook, line and sinker. She doesn’t give you the option of falling in love with her books – from the moment you lay your eyes on that first word you are guaranteed to be a goner. I can’t even begin to express how excited I am about this new, Dirty Down South, series… I just want more… NOW!

About the Book


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.
