Her First Time is a short novella (just 56 pages) about Dakota, a twenty-one-year-old virgin, and Owen, her childhood neighbor and longtime crush. When Dakota lets it slip that she’s a virgin at her sister’s bachelorette party, the group of women won’t let that stand. They enlist Owen’s help in deflowering her – the sooner the better.
Both Dakota and Owen were good characters. They felt real, even though the situation they were put in most definitely did not. The writing is good, as always, but I felt disconnected by how fast the plot moved. I suppose that’s to be expected in a book this short, but I wish we’d had a little more time to get to know the characters.
Final rating: ★★★☆☆
I received a free ARC of Her First Time from the author in exchange for my honest review.
