My Review 

I really enjoyed this book by Dawn Stanton. 

The story is about  Hailey, Cory and Marcus. It's a story of discover and firsts. This is the debt novel by Dawn Stanton and you wouldn't know from reading it. It is well written and has a good pace. What I loved about this was that it made me feel the emotions of the all  the characters. It was a great story of love- who will win Hailey's heart- Cory or Marcus. It's mainly told from Hailey's POV but we do also get Cory's and Marcus' which I think really added to the story. Once I started this one I was hooked and didn't want to put it down. I really hope the losing guy as such gets a book but I'm not saying who as I don't want to spoil it. 

Overall a great debut novel and I look forward to future books by the author. 

* I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review

I open the bathroom door and hold it for Shelby. We are walking past the men's room at the same time Cory is exiting it. We barely miss bumping into each other and share a laugh over our close call.

"Hey, can I grab you for a sec?" He asks me.

"Sure, Shelby I'll meet you on the dance floor in a few." Shelby nods and smirks as she walks away. She knows about my "Cory crush" and how hot I think he is.

"So what's up Cory?" I ask, wondering what he could want to talk to me about.

"Come here," he says, wrapping his warm hand around mine. He walks us back toward where we just came from, before continuing down the hall and around a sharp corner. He fluidly turns me to face him and tucks me back into the alcove on the right side of the hallway. The small space is deep enough to offer some privacy as he maneuvers his body close to mine. My breath stutters from the contact and I suddenly feel nervous. I'm not sure what to do with my hands so I place my palms on the cool wall behind me, bracing myself against it. He runs the top of his index finger slowly down my cheek and back up again.

"It seems like such a cliché' for you to be turning sweet sixteen and you've never been kissed. I thought I could help you out with that." He says with a sly smile on his handsome face. Before I can reply that I have already been kissed, he is softly pressing his mouth to mine. His lips are warm and sure. It feels different than kissing Marcus. Maybe it's the fact that he's eight years older than me and he has a lot of experience, whatever the reason, I feel as though I'm kissing a man. The kiss is over almost before it's begun, yet I can't help but feel as though my destiny has been irrevocably changed as a result. One small kiss from Cory Marshall and my life would never be the same.
