Feels Like the First Time
by Ciana Stone
When Clint Marsh pulls a woman from an overturned semi on a county road in Florida, he expects only to do a good deed then get back on his motorcycle and head home.
It doesn’t quite work out that way. The woman turns out to be Lily Ridenger, his first love, and the one woman who has the ability to turn his thoughts to sin with a single look. She’s in need of a place to stay and he has room to spare. So what if they have unfinished business between them? So what if there are still unresolved feelings? Chances are they’ll hook up, have sex hot enough to start a fire and go their separate ways. At least that’s what Clint thought…
He thought wrong.
Feels Like the First Time by Ciana Stone is a novella that never felt like a short story. This was my first book by Ciana Stone and I was so impressed. Novellas usually leave me feeling like I was so rushed and couldn’t just absorb and enjoy the characters and the plot. That was so not the case with this book.
Clint Marsh has a pretty good life. He runs a successful ranch with his brothers and enjoys life as it comes. Love isn’t a factor. He just has never seemed to be able to get his first love off of his mind. They had one amazing night years before and then went their separate ways. He never thought he would see her again, until one fateful night he stops to help a truck driver that was in an accident.
Lily Ridenger has about had it with all of the curveballs life is throwing at her. Her good for nothing soon to be ex-husband cheated on her, gambled away her money and childhood home. In some serious need of cash she takes a job driving truck. This could be her chance to get back on her feet and create a new life for herself. Some idiot causes her to wreck her truck and she knows that she is out of the job that she so desperately needed. To make matters even more complicated a man comes to her rescue. But, this isn’t just any man it’s Clint Marsh, her childhood love and a man that she has never been able to get off of her mind
The two quickly realize that the flame hasn’t burnt out between them. What follows is a series of twists and turns that threatens to tear them apart once more
When life kicks you to the dirt, you’ve got nowhere to go but up.
