You always remember your first time...
Whether it's the couple who decides not to go through with it, the two boys who finally aren't ashamed, the newlyweds whose wedding night could very well be their last night together, the deaf pair who have no choice but to take body language to a new level--or, of course, the two young lovers fumbling and laughing, getting everything wrong. These are the memories that will never fade.
Join nineteen fantastic authors as they pull back the curtain and give you a peek inside that one intense moment in their characters' lives when everything changes and nothing will ever be the same again.
Featuring stories from some of the hottest names in New Adult, Young Adult, and Romance including New York Times Bestselling authors J.Lynn/Jennifer Armentrout, Molly McAdams, Sophie Jordan, and Carrie Ryan.
NOTE: These stories are works of fiction. If you want to know about our first times, you'll have to buy us a pet monkey first.

Fifty First Times: A New Adult Anthology features a diverse enough collection of those memorable experiences we call 'first times' to satisfy every reader. What's an added treat is seeing the list of authors--ranging from popular traditionally published and indie authors in YA and NA--and ranging from short stories based on a series or stand alone tales. I thought the list of authors was impressive and I was thrilled to see so many of my favorites offered something in this rich collection. As usual, there were some I loved. some I liked and some that were okay. And that's all right since this is an anthology. Unfortunately, there were some I wanted to read more of, and some I couldn't really get a feel for due to the brevity of the story. This anthology has a wide scope of settings and ranges from teens to college age characters. My advice: take your time and enjoy each story individually instead of plowing through. The experience will be more satisfying and memorable, kind of like a 'first time.' I enjoyed it.
A bit too dark and unexciting for me.
