Like his name, Gray is dark and stormy. Dylan, a girl always searching for what’s next, seemingly unable to settle down, is the exact opposite: full of light and life. On the outside, they seem like an unlikely couple. But looks can be deceiving and besides, opposites attract.
What starts as friendship, turns into admiration, respect and caring, until finally these two lone souls find they are truly in love with each other.
But staying in love is not as easy as falling in love. If Dylan and Gray want their love to last, they’re going to have to work at it. And learn that sometimes love means having to say you’re sorry.
I heard some mixed things about First Comes Love by Katie Kacvinsky before I ever picked it up, but I decided to give it a shot anyway.There were a few things that I liked, but for the most part the book just wasn’t for me.
The concept of First Comes Love is firsts, obviously. First meeting, first kiss..etc. I really liked that. I liked seeing a relationship unfold that way. I just didn’t like the characters too much. Dylan was a little over the top and unbelievable. Gray just fell flat for me. I couldn’t fully get behind their relationship because I didn’t find Dylan appealing at all. It’s hard to like a romance book if you don’t like the romance.
My other big problem with the book was there was a lot of telling instead of showing. A lot. That’s something that I don’t notice too often, so it had to be a lot for me to take note. Overall, I just wasn’t a fan of the story. Lots of people have enjoyed it though. So don’t take my word for it.
