FIRST & FOREVER Excerpt:

We walked off into the darkness, and I held her hand firmly in my own. I’d never been a big hand holder, but it’s like I needed to have hers in mine. I needed to touch her constantly, and I wanted her to know she was always safe with me—even if I was far from safe to most anyone else.

She tugged on my hand, and I gladly followed her down closer to the water.

She took in another deep breath. “There is nothing like the beach at night.”

“You like it at night, too? I was worried you wouldn’t like it without the sun.” I wondered if I was unique in craving the quiet shadows of the dark beach.

“I like the beach during the day, but I love it at night. There is just something about listening to the waves in the darkness and the soft glow of the stars reflecting off the water.”

“Yeah. It’s nice.” I moved behind her, and she leaned into me. We stood that way for several minutes before I turned her to look at me.

She looked like a dream standing there in the glimmering of the moonlight. I studied her face, looking for a sign that she was something more than the beautiful human that had attracted me from the moment we met. Every part of me knew how significant she was to me, but I wanted more proof. “You’re so beautiful. So unbelievably beautiful…” I trailed off as my lips gave in to what they had wanted to do all day.

 My Review of First & Forever:  I am a huge fan of Alyssa Rose Ivy's and her Crescent Chronicles Series is one of my favorite paranormal series....seriously.  I got kind of burnt out on the paranormal for a while and was oh so pleasantly surprised when I began this serious.  Not only is it fresh, unique, and captivating, it is also so well written and different from many of the books that are labeled New Adult.  First & Forever are from Levi's point of view, which I loved.  It is a novella, so it isn't really long, but it also isn't just a retelling of the events in  the series in Levi's words.  It definitely has it's own spin, and then there is Jared and I LOVE Jared.  I think you will to.  If you are a fan of paranormal romance then this series is a must read.  If you are burnt out on paranormal romance, then this series will give you that push that rekindles your love for the genre, and if you've never read paranormal romance, you couldn't pick a better series to try out.
