Read full description of the books:
First Time: Ian is a contemporary adult romance written by Abigail Barnette. Note: This novel is based off of characters featured in Ms. Barnette's amazing The Boss series, but I don't think you would be missing out horribly if you were to read it as a standalone novel. (Although, I highly recommend the series - it's one of my favorites!!!)
As soon as I read that Ms. Barnette was publishing a new book, I one-clicked the preorder without any question. I am a loyal follower of her The Boss series and when I saw this was Ian's story I was sooooo excited. Ian isn't necessarily a main character in the series but he has had his moments in the spotlight and his character has definitely worked his way into my heart ♥. First Time: Ian adds gorgeous layering to Ian's character via family and spiritual elements and he is without a doubt the leading man in this book.
Ian's character is not ego-driven, he's not a millionaire or some cocky bastard...he's a fifty-three year old, down-to-earth man who is generous, loyal, protective, and just an all-around great guy. So as a reader, I want the best for him. His love interest, Penny, is a beautiful, sweet, and honest gal who I immediately liked. It's hard not to.
Oh...did I mention she's twenty-two?
Yes, I just wrote that bit with a raised eyebrow and cocked head. I'll let you know up front that I'm a hypocrite for judging. The main characters in The Boss series have a huge chunk of age difference between them and I have yet to bat an eye. The difference? Maturity. Sophie is a young but emotionally strong woman. Penny? Well, I started out loving her. After all, anyone who can make sweet, self-depreciating Ian feel like a superstar gets a thumbs up from me. But after the initial infatuation wore off and I got to know Penny a bit more, I was like...Ian, are you serious???? She is a sweetheart for sure, but for a twenty-two year old, she has got some major emotional baggage and overreaction tendencies. As a reader (and huge fan of Ian's), I don't support this pairing. She's a young, hot thing with a good heart, but she needs to grow up some before I approve.
Regardless of some negatively noted above, I still gave First Time: Ian four stars. There was a lot of humor and for a good portion of this book, I literally could not put it down. Crushes and new love can be so intoxicating and all of that positive energy was palpable - I was in a constant state of smile. That kind of experience is damn hard to ignore :)
Disclaimer: Ms. Barnette has published two different perspectives for this story: one in Ian's (First Time: Ian) and one in Penny's (First Time: Penny). I have not yet read Penny's perspective, but based on Ms. Barnette's storytelling talent, I won't be surprised at all if I change my mind about Penny's character once I'm done.
My favorite quote:
"Sometimes, we want to love a person more than they deserve to be loved by us. And we'll do a lot of rationalizing to fool ourselves into believing that they deserve it."
