That First Kiss by J.C. Valentine

This author asked me to review this book and OH MY GOD so glad I was able to read it.. Here are my thoughts on: 

Mercurial and charming, Tate Larson is a rising author and playboy who has a different woman on his arm every night of the week. Focused on his work, Tate has no plans to settle down any time soon. That is until he meets his pretty new assistant, Piper Donovan.

Desperate to escape the promise of backwater living, Piper ditched her Alabama hometown and never looked back. That was almost two years ago. Now that she is out of a job and her bank account is running on fumes, she’s desperate to find a job, fast. She finds the break she is searching for when she lands a position at Bookish Temptations. A little dancing and a lot of drinks with the girls seem the perfect way to celebrate. After a brief but explosive encounter with a man she was never supposed to see again turns out to be the same man she will be bending over backwards to please, her every instinct tells her to run. But when running means leaving the life she has struggled so hard to create, Piper decides her only option is to continue working for the devastatingly sexy Tate Larson...even if it kills her.

Unable to deny their growing attraction, they struggle to keep their distance in a relationship that requires anything but.

*This book is intended for mature audiences.*

My Thoughts

Three words to describe this book... HOT HOT HOT!!! 
It was also delicious, funny, angsty, and I really enjoyed it!!

Piper was an amazing character full of humor, wit, intelligence, and a backbone. She told people where to go and was not afraid to tell them either. Tate was an asshole and not just any kind of asshole he was an asshole author.. 
He was temperamental, angry, HOT, and even  a little softy at heart. 

Piper and Tate meet in the most romantic of ways.. She spots him across the room, their eyes lock, her nether regions tingle with satisfaction and he eventually bends her over the bathroom sink, never tells her his name and leaves her just as fast as he fucked her.. 

Now this one night stand was supposed to be just a little fun and nothing more but when Piper lands her job as an assistant to a very mercurial young author, she never expects it to be the one and only Tate. She decides that they are both adults and can work past the awkwardness and they do...sort of.. 

They can't deny the fact they are both hot for one another and if it wasn't for the fact that Piper was his assistant he would have done her in more positions than even the karma sutra has invented ;)....

Working for Tate is hard work. He is always mad, throwing tantrums and calling her all hours of the night for stupid things that could wait until the morning. They fight more than they work but you see a certain amount of chemistry and passion with one another that you can't help but swoon at and wait patiently for it to completely explode. I was panting with need and want, waiting for these two to rip their clothes off and screw each other all sorts of ways..

I really liked this book. I loved the build up and sexual tension between Tate and Piper. Tate was my favorite type of book boyfriend, an asshole with a soft heart and Piper put him in his place but wasn't a bitch, she did it with class when I would have probably stomped on his balls. The story was great, they both had sketchy pasts with crazy EXes and they were a little jaded but eventually got over their fear to pursue each other. 

I loved Tate's mom she seemed like a winner and didn't feel as if the sun shone out of Tate's ass like most moms with sons feel. I just wish there was more background on both Tate and Piper but other than that this book was really good and worth the sexual frustration There is also an epilogue AND it is a standalone with no cliffys so it is one complete story!

I give this book a 4/5 **** and if you want to read about feisty characters with walking hard-ons for one another but also funny and a great story then pick up this book today!!!
