Firsts - Rosalie Stanton
Savannah is looking at entering college as a virgin. After getting her heart shattered by one of the high school’s notorious playboys, she turns to her best friend, Thorn, and implores him to help her solve the tiny problem of her virginity.

What she doesn’t know is Thorn has been in love with her since the second he laid eyes on her, and asking him to touch what he can’t have is nothing less than torture. After succumbing to her advances, Thorn makes it his mission to convey everything he hasn’t been able to put into words into touch, hoping Savannah will feel in his hands and mouth what she has never seen in his eyes.

It's a nice story to pass some time on, but nothing terribly memorable.

I liked Thorn, with his British accent and the (IMO) bad boy image. Although it was mentioned he moved to USA when he was 4 or 5, I'm not exactly sure that he would still have it, but that's not terribly important.

One of the things that prompted me to read the book is the theme - friends-to-lovers. And the book definitely delivered on that count.

Unfortunately I didn't like Savannah much - she came across as an indecisive, selfish wimp. She so didn't deserve Thorn.
