The Perfect First – Maya Hughes

43802284. sy475

“How long do you last in bed?” Those were her first words to me, swiftly followed up with, “And how big would you say you are?”

Persephone Alexander. Math genius. Lover of blazers. The only girl I know who can make Heidi braids look sexy as hell. And she’s on a mission. Lose her virginity by the end of the semester. 

I walked in on her interview session for potential candidates (who even does that?) and saw straight through her brave front. She’s got a list of Firsts to accomplish like she’s only got months to live. I’ve decided to be her guide for all her firsts except one. Someone’s got to keep her out of trouble. I have one rule, no sex. We even shook on it.

I’ll help her find the right guy for the job. Someone like her doesn’t need someone like me and my massive…baggage for her first time. 

Drinking at a bar. Check. 

Partying all night. Double check. 

Skinny dipping. Triple check. 

She’s unlike anyone I’ve ever met. The walls I’d put up around my heart are slowly crumbling with each touch that sets fire to my soul. 

I’m the first to bend the rules. One electrifying kiss changes everything and suddenly I don’t want to be her first, I want to be her only. But her plan was written before I came onto the scene and now I’m determined to get her to re-write her future with me. 

So this is not the first book I’ve read by Maya Hughes I read some of the Kings of Rittenhouse series which includes: Shameless King, Reckless King, and Ruthless King. I really need to finish that series which I do plan on doing this year. Anyway onto this book, I was really excited when Maya announced a new series because I love her work. I had high expectations.

Seph I felt really sorry for her when we learnt how she had been brought up and that she hadn’t made friends or didn’t really know how to interact with them my heart really broke for her. Although Seph was sassy, funny but she was also incredibly protective of herself and didn’t like to trust or rely on anyone else.

Reece is so cute and I loved him so much I also loved that he was willing to help Seph with her list and although he should have known better he was willing to do everything to help her.

I loved the idea of the list and Seph trying to do everything before she had to go and do what her dad wanted her to do. Seph just wanted to live her life before he dad controlled the rest of it and I loved Reece for helping her with it.

I really liked Reece and Seph’s relationship it was cute how fast he became obsessed with her and wanting to help her. The way their relationship built it was so cute the way they were there for each other. I love how fast they begin to fall for each other and finally give into what they were feeling.

I loved the side characters in this book, Nix, LJ, Berk they were just so lovely and it did make me excited for there stories I just love how supportive they all are for each other. Just supportive friend group. We also meet Alexa in this book which she begins to play a bigger part later in the series which I found very interesting.

I loved Reece’s family they were cute.

Also I feel like an honourable mention from this whole book was Reece’s gift which says ‘you are enough’ and honestly it was so cute and I loved that he did that for her and let her know that she is enough it filled me heart so much it was perfect.

I loved this book it had so many cute moments that Maya is definitely known for and it was a great start to the new series. Although the series is also ending (7/1/21) with the final book so I’m behind on posting reviews.
