My POV: First Comes Love by Katie Kacvinsky and HAPPY RELEASE DAY!

Hardcover, 224 pages
Expected publication: May 8th 2012 by Houghton Mifflin Harcourt 

 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.--Goodreads


What a beautiful love story! Gray and Dylan will forever be in my Love Story Hall of Fame.

Meeting at a community college in Arizona they never thought they would end up in any kind of relationship. Gray and Dylan are polar opposites. Dylan is awkward and artistic but very comfortable in her own skin with an enthusiastic out look on life. Gray is in a very dark place in the beginning of the book. Depressed, moody, distant, and confused he's lost his enthusiasm for life because he has lost someone extremely close to him. Preferring not to share anything about himself he’s closed himself off to the world. He never talks to anyone or never smiles and I guess you could say that curiosity is what drew Dylan to him at first. She knows it will be hard to get Gray to open up but she likes a challenge and has tons of patients and understanding . She never let's anything get her down.

The chemistry between these two is undeniable and beautiful. Dylan is such a free spirit you will lover her right away. She so positive and upbeat you can’t help but adore her. Grays devotions is refreshing and surprising it makes me love him so much. Dylan says she loves everyone freely without regard or hesitation but she's no fool. She knows Gray is someone special. Someone that means more to her than anyone else ever has.

Guys you have to read this book. It’s so good and fun you will regret missing out if you don‘t. Wonderful characters, a passionate relationship and a one great story. Pick it up today! It’s now available
"You know you love someone when he makes all the ordinary moments feel extraordinary. When doing absolutely nothing feels like everything. Gray assumed he wasn't enough. And what I didn't admit, what I didn't realize at the time, is that it's just the opposite. He was too much."
