SYNOPSIS


Fate has kept them apart for twenty years.

Their roads hadn't crossed and the stars didn't align until now...



Matured, more experienced, pierced, tattooed and hot as hell, Adrian steps back into Mia's life to reclaim his first love.

And the moment she sees him she can't even remember her own name.



Adrian Reed had always remained in Mia's heart. After all, he was her first boyfriend and the man she'd lost her virginity to, but that was twenty years ago. His sudden appearance at a bar, on a girls night out, has Mia acting like the fifteen year old girl she was when they parted.



But life now is not as simple as it was twenty years ago. With two kids, a hopeful ex-husband and new insecurities, Mia finds opening up to a new relationship more challenging.


Will she give her first love another chance, or will she push him away, this time for good?


 
EXCERPT
 
Stepping over the threshold, within inches of his reach, I removed my shoes and waited. He simply pulled me inside, shutting the door, and set the wine bottle and my purse aside on the hall table.

His silence buzzed through me with pleasurable tingles.


He cupped my face, tilting my head to the side. I closed my eyes, breathing in his scent. Adrian’s mouth brushed mine and my hands fell to my sides. His lips traced along the bow of my upper lip before his tongue dipped inside. I opened wider. He slowly walked backward. My foot brushed against his every few steps. Keeping my eyes closed, I followed wherever he led me until a hard surface touched my back. By this point there was nothing innocent about the way his mouth was dominating me. I heard myself moan and whimper pure lust with each breath. My hand lowered to his jeans and curved around his arousal, stroking the hard length underneath. I wasn’t sure what came over me, but I was so desperate for him, for us, I could no longer control my body. His hips pressed in as he groaned inside my mouth.


When he pulled away, his gaze bored through me with penetrating heat. If he had wanted to, he could have melted those buttons right off my dress. Adrian took me by my waist and lifted me up to the kitchen counter. His fingers slowly trailed down my nose, over my lips and chin, and then along the middle of my neck and upper swell of my breasts until he reached the buttons on my dress. My chest swelled, and all I could think about was how fast he could get this dress off me. With each passing second I found it more difficult to breathe. The fabric was restraining me as if I were locked away in a coffin.


Unfasten these damned buttons! my mind screamed, but my mouth couldn’t form a coherent sentence. 


But the eager fingers from our teens now had unbelievably arousing patience and experience. Adrian undid the top button open and I looked down, following the movement of his hands.

He stole a lingering kiss again, and then flicked open one button after another, trailing a downward path until he reached the hem. Parting the fabric to the sides, he took me in, slowly scanning my body.


“You wore white the first time we made love.”


“I know.”


Everything inside me turned and twisted into knots of nerves. As he watched me, my chest tightened inside yet swelled on the outside. The heat coming off his breath and skin was too much and not enough at the same time. My cleavage and stomach were partly exposed for him, and I couldn’t help but hold my breath.


The skim of his fingers down my arms as he admired every inch of my skin sent beautiful tingles through my body. Adrian seemed in no hurry. I grasped the hem of his shirt, lifted it up and off his torso, and then pushed my dress from underneath me and moved it to the side. It fluttered to the ground, freeing my hips and legs.


And as we stared at each other, I knew that there was no one else I had ever wanted more than him. He was the soulmate I’d once lost and been lucky enough to find again. That little piece of my heart I’d locked him away in had begun expanding the moment he reappeared in my life.


Looking at him now, I couldn’t believe how much his body had changed over the past twenty years. I held my breath, admiring the marvel of a man he’d become. His naturally toned torso and sun-kissed skin mesmerized me. The tattoo weaving up his upper arm hid beyond his shoulder and all I could think about was the need for my tongue to trace those dark lines and for my lips to kiss the new patterns inked over his skin. I wanted to throw myself at his hips, wrap my legs around him, and feel him dive into me. 

How in the world did he have so much control? Or did he do this on purpose? It was as if he compelled me to inspect his pecs and abs and that beautiful path, sprinkled with a shadow of hair, that led beyond the buckle of his pants, just to excite me. I devoured his taut body as he leaned forward, splaying his hands against the counter at the side of my thighs. His thumbs gently brushed against my hips. The flex of his arms and that sexy way he had of focusing just on me—really, really looking at me—made me hungry for more than just baked apples.


“There, that’s much better.” He leaned in and kissed me. “Hi, Thumbelina.”

“Hello.”





 REVIEW
(By Trish)


4 SECOND CHANCE AT LOVE STARS

First love – can it last forever?  Even when there has been 20 years since you last saw each other and your lives have taken completely different turns.


Well Lacey Silks makes you believe that Fate is real and that first love is stronger than anything you have.


Two teens in love, twenty years ago.  They were each other’s first and true loves.


Mia stole Adrian’s heart 20 years ago.  Circumstances were difficult when living in different countries, but they wanted to be together…


It all came rolling to a stop when circumstances broke them apart.  Long distance was not easy and it was heartbreaking.   


It was hard to stay in touch.  It was painful for Mia not to be with her true love.  The only way she could move on was to stop contact with Adrian.  Even though this broke Mia’s heart and Adrian’s – they both made sure they knew what the other was doing from a distance.  They both moved on, but always kept a place for each other in their hearts.


Then one momentous night out with the girls, she sees him and all the feelings come flooding back.

The history between Adrian and Mia seems so long ago, but this fateful meeting in that bar has Mia feeling every single emotion she did when she was young.


“He lived in Europe and I lived in Toronto. So imagine my surprise when the man I’d lost my virginity to stood less than three feet away from me, in a bar on my girls’ night out.”


Why was Adrian here?  So many questions to be answered.  So many explanations to divulge.


Mia was truly speechless when seeing Adrian in that bar.  He had grown up.  Now a sexy, gorgeous tattooed well-built man – she was lost for words.


“It’s our universe, “he said as if reading my mind. “It is ours, isn’t it? And you found me.” “Every time I looked up into the sky I thought of you, especially the Little Dipper.” He pointed toward the constellation. “Why the little Dipper?” “Because you’re my little Thumbelina, and the Little Dipper is…little”.


I loved the way Mia dealt with her situation.  One minute she wasn’t sure, the next she couldn’t get enough of Adrian.  I also loved the extra tension and diversity her ex husband and mother added to the mix.  


And I just adored Adrian.  So patient, so loving and caring and just beautiful.  He was there for her, to win her back.  He took in her family like it was his own.  He loved her and has always loved her and now it was their time to be together.


Adrian

"You're my everything"

Ich liebe dich uber alles - I love you more than anything


Are Mia and Adrian destined to be together?  Can they make it work?
 

Or have they grown too far apart to rekindle anything they may have felt?


Who is lucky enough to get a chance at love a second time around – with their first love?


The characters were amazingly real.  The storyline was perfect.  The sexual tension and chemistry between Mia and Adrian was amazing.  


It was a sweet and wonderful story of second chance romance.  Full of truth, tears, love, passion, hurt, sexual tension and coming back to your one true love.

10 Fun Facts About Lacey Silks


1. Although very shy in life Lacey’s dream was once to be an actress. As a teenager, Lacey took on the work of an extra in movies and TV shows. She’s been lucky enough to meet Shirley Maclaine, Ricki Lake, Brendan Fraser, Jerry O’Connell, Matthew Broderick and Marlon Brando.


2. Lacey has a secret crush on actor, dancer and singer Derek Hough (it’s not a big secret so she doesn’t mind sharing this). She recently had the chance to watch Derek and Julianne Hough perform on their Move on Live Tour and came within 10 feet of him when he jumped off the stage and ran into the crowd. Lacey nearly fainted, but luckily had her husband by her side for support.


3. Lacey’s dream vacation is the Atlantis in Bahamas. She hopes to surprise her family with the trip within the next couple of years.


4. When writing My First, My Last Lacey used her own name, her hubby’s name and her first boyfriend’s name in the manuscript later replacing the names with current characters. She fully imagined herself in Mia’s shoes, making some scenes quite difficult and emotional to write.


5. Lacey likes to take risks (not life risks). She doesn’t like the sentence “This can’t be done” and believes there’s always a way out of a difficult situation.


6. The mention of flying or going on a plane gives Lacey goose bumps. She has an unbelievable fear of flying that has developed after the birth of her kids. She will stay buckled up the entire flight, will not go to the bathroom and will pray during take-off and landing. Please be gentle if you ever find yourself sitting next to her.


7. Joking around is part of Lacey’s daily routine. She will prank her family, giggle on the floor and snort if there is a need.


8. At twenty, Lacey shared a bottle of Goldschlager with her best friend on a New Years Eve and hasn’t touched it since.


9. Lacey has a long bucket list she’s been crossing off for years. Some of the items she’s done: Vacationed in Jamaica, swam with dolphins, rode a horse on a beach (and in the ocean). Outstanding: Las Vegas, Tour of Europe, Australia, Bahamas, having a small roll in a movie. While she may not be able to cross everything off in her lifetime, dreaming big is part of who she is.


10. Lacey’s first boyfriend actually does live in Vienna, Austria (as described in My First, My Last), has a barbell piercing in his brow and a tattoo on his right arm. He is a good friend of hers and Lacey thinks he blushed when she told him about My First, My Last. She hasn’t seen him (other than via Skype) in 20 years.
