Akako Kurosawa, from Osaka, takes a trip to Yokota Air Force Base to visit her girlfriend. The plan is to go to the NCO Club together and practice their English on the GI's. Akako's girlfriend does not show up at Mos Burger, their meeting location. Akako goes to the club alone and works on more than her English when she meets Robert and Tyrone, two black security policemen.
Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?
Yes, the book is an a perfect description of the Yokota NCO club during the 80's. I was there and it was exactly the way Cici described it in the story.
What other book might you compare First Taste to and why?
This is a unique stand-alone story that nothing compares to it.
Which scene was your favorite?
The bar scene when Akako first enters the crowded bar and meets Miko.
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
The ending on the train when she is cleaning her eyebrow and eating chocolate.
Any additional comments?
This is the first of the Akako Kurosawa series, and this is Akako’s story. How a Japanese girl raised in a traditional family goes over to the ‘dark side?” A must audiobook, the foundation of the series. A fun and sexy audiobook. Akako has a spark and a kink with her sense of loyalty.
