"Like his name, Gray is dark and stormy. Dylan, a girl always searching for what's next, seemingly unable to settle down, is the exact opposite: full of light and life. On the outside, they seem like an unlikely couple. But looks can be deceiving and besides, opposites attract.
What starts as friendship, turns into admiration, respect and caring, until finally these two lone souls find they are truly in love with each other.
But staying in love is not as easy as falling in love. If Dylan and Gray want their love to last, they're going to have to work at it. And learn that sometimes love means having to say you're sorry."
After reading this story, I feel like this is good point of view of falling in love and not even knowing it. It all happens so fast and yet you can not get enough of it.

So this is typical love story with a twist. For me, this story is much more realistic than intsa-love. They take their time getting to know each other. Going out on trips, taking a stroll down memory lane, telling secrets they never told before. They shared their hurt with each other, allowing the other to be a good friend and be comfort to them. I really loved this part.

Now for the part that bugs me. It may be a bit spoilery, so I apologize in advance. Why would you leave something good behind? That's all I'm going to say. I really dislike the ending. It got me furious that someone can be so dumb! UGH! Moving on...

This story is much more, how can I say descriptive in their love. They are real, in your face, completely honest with the their feelings and actions and that's what got me hooked. I guess you can say with the ending, after I think about it, people do get scared and leave. It happens. 

I recommend this book for 18+. Given that their is sexual activity, drinking, and such going on.

First Comes Love is a great adaption of what happens in real life. Their no love-dovey romance and all flowers. It's real LOVE, formed by two people taking the time to get to know each other.They fight, kiss and make up like a real couple does. And that people is a real relationship. First Come Loves is an solid story with lots of emotion. Landing a crowd please, First Comes Love is great!

I give it 4 BITES!

Happy Reading!


  1. I really like how this book has real, raw love and not the mushy "true love" that we see so often that doesn't convince me. I should check this one out. Great review Savvy!

  2. I enjoyed this one too. And I know what you are talking about at the end. Was that necessary? Seriously????

  3. Oh, just freaking great. I know, I KNOW what Kacvinsky is capable of as far as romances go, but dammit i don't want a harsh ending. I don't want something that's going to make me rue the day I ever picked up the book. *sighs* Now, I'm all worried and shizz...

  4. Oh this sounds like a good romance book, but that ending scares me. Okay, I know not to get this on my ereader so I can pitch it across the room when I get to the end. :)
