The First Time in Forever by J.C. Amato

My edition: Kindle Unlimited
Series: Songbird series #1
Rating: 3 stars


For seventeen year old Melody Williams, life is a constant struggle to stay alive and one step ahead of those who seek to reclaim her. In one brief instant, her solitary life is turned upside down when Issac James, a member of one of the world’s hottest singing groups runs into her, literally with his little blue Porsche. Along with his band mates and best friends, Tyler, Jesse, Tristan and their manager Damon, her life is no longer lonely, but just got a whole lot more complicated.


I saw this as a recommendation to anyone who loved the Academy series by C.L. Stone. I thought I would give it a shot. But one thing I can say is the title, I hate. Reason why… well…


All I can think about is this stupid song. It’s stuck in my head.

Anyway. It was an okay plot line. The characters were okay. This needed some series editing. There were quotation marks when there shouldn’t have been and then there were no quotation marks when there needed to be. A few misspelled words. Just need some editing.

Heroine wasn’t buy able. She suffered abuse at the hands of her uncle and aunt but did not show signs of being abused mentally. After she shares her story with the guys I couldn’t help but think magic penis syndrome times five. She connected with the guys way to fast for my liking.

Other than that, I was on autopilot. I am going to read the second book because the ending to this one made me curious. I don’t know if I will continue with the series after that. I guess we will see.
