Publisher's Summary

Derrick and Trevor used to have an incredibly passionate relationship, full of spontaneity and sizzle. Now that their son is off to college, they want to put their days of routine, vanilla sex behind them and bring back some of that spark.

Realizing that they're emptynesters, Trevor begins to notice their age difference. He suddenly feels old and unsure of himself, and isn't confident Derrick still desires him. When Trevor decides to keep his health issues and gray hairs down there to himself, Derrick is hurt by his partner's secretive behavior and thinks Trevor must be having an affair. Nothing could be further from the truth, but Trevor doesn't know how to communicate his fears to his partner. He desperately wants to reconnect with Derrick and rev up their sex life, but will it be enough to reclaim their marital bliss?

First time...

This book was cute. It had a good story line, kept you wanting to know/hear the rest. And The narrator did a good job. Glad I took the time to listen to this one.

Get Over Yourselves

I usually love KC Burn's story. I'm not sure why I couldn't get into this one. But there were times I felt like yelling at the playback or just stop already and talk to each other. These are two men that have been together for a while, they have already weathered some tough changes, and yet now all of a sudden they seem so insecure not only in themselves but in their relationship. I'm glad they finally started talking but them seem to waste so much time getting there.

Very enjoyable

I was hesitant at first as it’s about relationships and openness. However I came to enjoy it fairly quickly. Sometimes we all assume the worst or our insecurities gets the better of us. Just being open and honest and straightforward and trusting of the other can make things less scary. I like how both of their own insecurities, similar to one another’s, were what kept them from talking outright. It all really comes down to how receptive each individual is when all is said and done. I like this story.

Ok short story with good narration

One of those plots driven by lack of communication and false assumptions, which can get exasperating, but thankfully this was such a short story, so resolved without too much drama. Though the story felt very contrived, the characters were pretty well developed and their relationship and deep love for each other was sweet.

Narration was good and added to my enjoyment of the story.

short cute little angsty story

Any additional comments?

A bit short for my liking, but otherwise a cute little story mostly focused on sex and insecurities about growing older.

Short and Sweet

I love how this story is short and romantic. Even though it's less than three hours long, nothing is lost in the plot. Charlie Belmont did a great job narrating this book. I would highly recommend it.

Delightful Short Story

This is a great little short story about the fears and insecurity of an established couple when they become "empty nesters." It is really sweet and I enjoyed listening to it. The narrator did a excellent job, but Charlie Belmont always does; he is one of my favorites. I wouldn't use a credit for it, but if it is on sale, worth it.

Thank you Charlie Belmont

I LOOOOOOVED this book. Truly. I did. Enter Trevor and Derrick. They've been married for several years and Trevor is hitting the big 4-0 and he suddenly starts to feel old. Derrick is 6 years younger and completely unaware of Trevor's fears. So, the story goes back and forth with Derrick and Trevor giving their perspective of different issues, fears, wants, desires. I cannot say enough about this wonderfully written story. I was entranced. K.C. Burn enveloped me into this world where I felt like I was experiencing EVERYTHING with both of them. The love and intense feeling that each had for each other was so beautiful. It made me love how people who've been married for a while could still feel that intense love for one another. And isn't it important to retain the passion and lust in a relationship when you've been together for a few years?

I do have to say that the video scene. *sigh* had me perspiring, but also feeling a bit sheepish. Perhaps I'm just not ready for sex tapes. LOL But, the sentiment was appreciated. HA.

I laughed whole heartily at so many scenes and as I was listening to it on audio, I know people couldn't help looking at me as I laughed out loud like a crazy person. OH WELL. They didn't know what they were missing!!! Charlie Belmont is a fantastic reader!!! He can come whisper in my ear anytime!

I for one will be reading more from K. C. Burn.
Thankyoumuch.

Wonderful. Invigorating read.

WOW...

What made the experience of listening to First Time, Forever the most enjoyable?

It had a lot of heart and the voice actor was good.

What other book might you compare First Time, Forever to and why?

There's really nothing to compare it to.

Which character – as performed by Charlie Belmont – was your favorite?

I liked Derrik.

Any additional comments?

I can't believe anyone gave this a 1 star. That's insane. This story was SOO SOO SOO sweet. I was very apprehensive about the whole 'aging' thing, and age difference. And don't get me wrong, some thoughts were brought up one time too many here or there but it was a cute story. It had me saying 'aww' very often throughout the book. The sex was interesting but I swear, if this book had no sex, I'd still have enjoyed it. Very enjoyable. Good pace. Well done. I look forward to more from this author. Also, the voice actor was surprisingly good.
