Title: The Perfect First

Author: Maya Hughes

Genre: New Adult Romance

Cover Design: Najla Qamber, Qamber Designs

Release Date: April 25, 2019


“How long do you last in bed?” Those were her first words to me, swiftly followed up with, “And how big would you say you are?”


Cue the record scratching, what?!


Persephone Alexander. Math genius. Lover of blazers. The only girl I know who can make Heidi braids look sexy as hell. And she’s on a mission. Lose her virginity by the end of the semester.


I walked in on her interview session for potential candidates (who even does that?) and saw straight through her brave front. She’s got a list of Firsts to accomplish like she’s only got months to live. I’ve decided to be her guide for all her firsts except one. Someone’s got to keep her out of trouble. I have one rule, no sex. We even shook on it.


I’ll help her find the right guy for the job. Someone like her doesn’t need someone like me and my massive…baggage for her first time.


Drinking at a bar. Check.


Partying all night. Double check.


Skinny dipping. Triple check.


She’s unlike anyone I’ve ever met. The walls I’d put up around my heart are slowly crumbling with each touch that sets fire to my soul.


I’m the first to bend the rules. One electrifying kiss changes everything and suddenly I don’t want to be her first, I want to be her only. But her plan was written before I came onto the scene and now I’m determined to get her to re-write her future with me.

My Review

HOLY CRAP WAS THIS GOOD!!! I was immediately sucked in by Seph and Reese. I read this whole book in one sitting, only about 4 hours. Seph was someone who I could someone relate to, I’m in no way a nerd like her, but I was also naive beyond belief. I love how blunt she spoke, how incredibly smart she was and her amazing sense of humor. I also loved how Reese was her perfect match. When we got to see these two together for the first time, I just knew they’d be perfect for each other! Their mistake meeting, his alpha tendencies peeking through and his weeding out people. The whole thing was HYSTERICAL! The fact that Seph and Reese were so different made everything so perfect. They were the perfect jock/nerd match up in so many ways. He was so perfect for her, because although he was the jock, he was just so genuine.

One of my favorite things about relationships like this is how they were friends before they were lovers. These two became really good friends and I loved that! I also adored how his friends totally adopted her as one of their own. Berk, LJ and Nix were hysterical when it came to her. I love how she went toe to toe and wasn’t afraid to be around them. Melissa was such a great addition too, she made it a little easier for her to be around the guys.

My absolute favorite part of this story though, was how Reese helped her become strong woman. Seph was so good at just letting people walk all over her when we were introduced to her. She was so used to being told what to do, that her rebellion was a lot different. Her rebellion was hysterical, but I loved how Reese really helped her out of her shell. He helped her believe in herself and show her how proud she should be of herself.

I cannot wait to see what is going to come from this series. Berk, LJ and Nix were hysterical and I can’t wait to see what she has up her sleeves for them!

Author Bio

Maya Hughes can often be found sneaking in another chapter while hiding in the bathroom from her kids! 🙂 I’m a romance writer who loves taking inspiration from everyday life, namely my husband and biggest fan. Inspiration also strikes when I hear a song, meet someone new or daydream while at soccer practice.

I’m the mom of three little ones, the wife to an amazing husband and also work full time. Some of my favorite things are cinnamon rolls, white wine, laughing until I can’t breathe and traveling with my family.
