Review: First Verse (Second Verse #1) by Emily Snow

Rating: ★★★★★ stars
Date published: July 10th, 2015
Publisher: Emily Snow Books
Synopsis: From the moment Kinsey Brock walks in on Emmett Hudson in the shower, she knows he’s going to be trouble. He’s sex with a Southern accent and a guitar, and he makes her heart go from zero to sixty just by darting his intense moss green eyes in her direction. But he’s also the grandson of the woman who took Kinsey in when she had no one else—and that means he’s off-limits. 

Too bad for Kinsey that word isn’t in Emmett’s vocabulary.

But want, need, and more sure as hell are.

**NOTE: Set eight years before the standalone novel SECOND VERSE (Coming July 2015), this prequel novella tells the story of Kinsey and Emmett’s first moments together. Both stories are intended for mature audiences.

What I Thought:

I am so impressed with this prequel novella! Emily Snow has always done a great job at writing angst. Her characters are ridden with it for various reasons. They love hard, fall hard, and always find a way to live with their pain. She tells phenomenal stories. First Verse is just as amazing as the other books of hers I've read. 

Kinsey stole my heart from the very first page. I felt her uncertainty, pain, and worry about her current situation. I felt so bad she was being judged by others for her circumstances in a bad way. However I really liked her spirit and her response to the haters. She was honorable and determined to do the right thing. I liked Emmett too. I thought he was bad news at first, but as it turns out, he wasn't. I loved how he took care of his grandmother and I loved how he cared for Kinsey.

I loved the chemistry Emmett and Kinsey had. It felt effortless and electric. I was on the edge of my seat for most of this book, and not just because I was waiting for the other shoe to drop, but because of how hot they were together. I got so caught up in what was happening between them I completely forgot a separation was coming. That's a testament to the writing and story. This novella had so much packed into it, I felt like I was reading a full length novella. 

I may or may not have yelled, "No!" at the end of this book and tried to click to the next page when there wasn't one. All I can say is, the sooner I have my hands on Second Verse, the better I'll be. Emily Snow has done it once again. In 70 pages she wrecked me. I'm looking forward to seeing how she puts me back together again.
