‘Wow! I have been blown away… I am struggling to express in words how much I enjoyed this, which I devoured in less than a day. Perfect for fans of Mary Jayne Baker, Portia Macintosh and Holly Martin.’ Netgalley reviewer ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ What if you met The One on his wedding day? Izzy doesn’t believe in love at first sight, but when Sam walks into the cafe where she works one cold December morning, she knows without a doubt that he’s The One. Too bad Sam’s getting married. Today. Nearly a year later, Izzy still can’t stop thinking about Sam, the one that got away, but she knows it’s time to move on: he’s a married man and probably wouldn’t recognise her if he passed her on the street. But Sam has never forgotten Izzy, the funny, gorgeous woman who asked him out on his wedding day. If the timing had only been better, he knows they could have had something wonderful. When Izzy and Sam’s paths finally cross again, everything has changed. But with the Atlantic Ocean and decades of baggage between them, they are about to find out whether some obstacles are too big for even true love to overcome. An unforgettable love story about what happens when the stars finally align. Fans of One Day in December, The Day We Met and Jojo Moyes will fall head over heels for The First Time We Met. Readers are loving The First Time We Met: ‘WHAT. A. STORY… Ever had to take a book chapter by chapter because you couldn’t see through your tears? Funny, light-hearted, but absolutely gut-wrenching at times. You’ll laugh, you’ll cry, you’ll be completely engulfed in Sam and Izzy’s story! A perfect cozy up in a blanket and read on your front porch story.’ Goodreads Reviewer ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ ‘Oh this book!! I've laughed and cried! This really has given me all the feels.

A love story which will completely stay with you.’ Little Miss Book Lover 87 ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ ‘There were points when I felt unable to breathe because of how much I loved this… I loved Izzy… At times it felt like I was reading my own thoughts. Sam was perfection… I laughed so much… it was the best combination of insta love and a slow burn romance I've ever read… It made my day. Just a perfect heart-warming romance.’ Hawthorn Book Reviews ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ ‘Keep the tissues handy for this one as it will make you cry buckets… This will break your heart but is a beautiful read with a pair who I really invested in and will miss now I have finished the book.’ Goodreads Reviewer ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ ‘Oh my god!!

From former football player and star of The Bachelor and The Bachelorette comes a fascinating and eye-opening behind-the-scenes look at his drama-filled season on the hit reality show. Before Colton Underwood captured the hearts of millions on The Bachelor, he was a goofy, socially awkward, overweight adolescent who succeeded on the football field while struggling with personal insecurities off it. An All American gridiron hero, he was also a complex, sometimes confused, soft-hearted romantic wondering how these contradictions fit together. Old-fashioned and out of step with the swipe right dating culture of today, he was saving the most intimate part of life for the love of his life. If only he could find her… Now, in The First Time, Colton opens up about how he came to find himself and true love at the same time via the Bachelor franchise. Unencumbered by cameras and commercial breaks, he delivers a surprisingly raw, endearing, and seriously juicy account of his journey through The Bachelorette, Bachelor in Paradise, and The Bachelor, along with what has happened with him and Cassie Randolph since his season wrapped. He opens up about being dumped by Becca, his secret dalliance with Tia, what it was like to be the world’s most famous virgin, his behind-the-scenes conflicts with production, and how his on-camera responsibilities as the Bachelor nearly destroyed him after he knew he had already fallen in love with Cassie. A memoir for Bachelor Nation and anyone who believes in the magic of love, The First Time carries a simple but powerful message: It’s okay to laugh and cry and occasionally jump over a fence, if it means coming one step closer to the right person.

|Author||: Rosemary Catacalos|

Again for the First Time was originally published in 1984 by Tooth of Time Books in Santa Fe, and almost immediately received the Texas Institute of Letters Poetry Prize. Catacalos went on to become a Dobie-Paisano fellow, a Stegner fellow, a recipient of an NEA creative writing fellowship, and numerous other honors. This book is unique in that it pairs and often plays against each other the mythologies of Catacalos's mixed Greek and Mexican backgrounds. At the same time that it is populated with characters like Ariadne and Theseus, it is very contemporary in its settings and the issues it addresses, including San Antonio street life, racism, mass killings, and foreign wars. It is a strongly feminist work as well. As Texas Monthly put it, For precise balance in tone and form, and for surprising resonance throughout, Again for the First Time is a superb book of poems.

A healthy marriage is the result of much more than a stroke of good fortune, the accidental meeting of two "soul mates," or a conscious commitment to stay together no matter what. Studies have found that romantic, passionate love is often just a memory by the wedding, or within the first year of marriage. Creating an intimate, satisfying, and stable marriage is by no means easy or guaranteed--it requires thought, communication, planning, and true commitment to each other (though luck and compatibility never hurt). The window of opportunity in which to build the foundation for such a relationship is narrow, and does not often last too long after the first two years of a marriage. Getting it Right the First Time provides the information every couple needs to know to understand what really makes a marriage work. Husband and wife team, Barry and Emily McCarthy share clear, helpful guidelines for creating a healthy marriage and reveal the strategies, skills, and attitudes that can help prevent disappointment, resentment, and alienation from entering the relationship. Ask any happily married couple whether the time and effort spent in creating a healthy marriage has been worth it, and you should get a universal answer. Getting it Right the First Time can make getting there a little easier.

The author looks at God's patterns in the Bible and His great saving deeds, and finds that the Bible is about telling and retelling the story of the God of promise and covenant who keeps working toward His ultimate goal--the restoration of Eden. He concludes that Jesus fulfills the longings of the Jewish Scriptures and explains how the law brings freedom and how our assurance of salvation flows from God's justice.
