Title: First and Last
Author: Rachael Duncan
Genre: Contemporary Romance
We’ve been inseparable since she moved next door when we were six years old. Then it all changed.
I don’t know when or why, but suddenly I want more. I want her. The problem was she didn’t.
But everything changes when you cross that line between friends and lovers.
I thought convincing her to give us a chance would be my biggest hurdle. Little did I know that was only the beginning.
Mia consumes all of my thoughts when we’re apart, and all of my senses when we’re together. There’s no going back to the way things were and I’ll do whatever it takes to make sure she isn’t just my first, but also my last.
Will we be able to hold on, or will our relationship go up in flames?
“This was the second book I've read by Rachael, and she found a fan for life in me.” -A.M. Madden, USA Today Bestselling author
“Duncan slayed this novel!”
“This story was AMAZING! I started it last night before bed and honestly, I could not put it down.”
“Rachael, I have to say, this is your best work to date. BRAVO!! Definitely a 5 star read with a major book hangover!”
I'm like a kid who has seen fireworks for the first time. I'm both amazed and so damn happy.
When you're weak, I'll be strong; when you're sad, I'll bring you joy; when you're down, I'll lift you up. I will forever be there for you and I'm honored that you chose me to share your life with. I'll love you forever in this life and the next.
I want to go back in time and kick my own ass.
But instead of wishing you could take the pain for him, be his strength so he can get through it on his own.
My first response every time I see her is to smile. I can't help it. There was a moment in time where I never thought my eyes would land on hers again.
New beginnings and second chances... My first friend. My first kiss. My only love. My first and my last.
First and Last was MY first Rachael Duncan experience, but certainly not my last. I consumed it like a starved and cheating dieter, and I adored every chapter, despite the angsty periods and catastrophic events. I was extremely moved and entirely engaged with this sweet, insightful, and thoughtful love story. The plot was relevant, realistic, and heart squeezing. The characters were well drawn, lovable, and down to earth. The writing was full of feels and occasionally sensual. Ms. Duncan squeezed my cold heart and had me sobbing, yet I still wanted more! Say what? I know - it's not my usual reaction - I am stunned... But this gal has remarkable skills! I want to read every single thing she has written or plans to write.
