The year is 2135 and young women are bid upon at the Virgin Auctions, a city-wide event that allows wealthy men to purchase young brides for an exuberant price. They are trained to be the docile and submissive wives that will please their future husbands. Once they are bought, they are at the mercy of their owners

Veronica Dubois doesn’t know what to expect when it is her time to be in the Virgin Auctions. When she is purchased by Kristoff St. Michaels, a man twice her size and age, Veronica fears her new husband is as cruel and heartless as the other wealthy men that come to the auctions. When Kistoff reveals a part of him that goes against every horror story she’s heard, she has hope that maybe her life isn’t over.

The first time doesn’t have to be grit-your-teeth-and-bear-it, not with Kristoff St. Michaels around anyway!

This story is set in the future, 2135 to be precise, and women are now trained in submission and then auctioned off to be married. Once bought, often for ridiculously high prices, they are at the mercy of their new husbands. Their lot in life has been carved out for them.

Veronica Dubois is one of these such virgins and as she stands naked on the platform at the auctions, waxed, and creamed and primped to look her best, she is understandably nervous. What if a cruel and mean man purchases her? Her life will be nothing but misery.

But fate is kind to Veronica and she is snapped up by the handsome Kristoff and whisked off to his mansion. Kristoff may be kind but he is also older than Veronica and huge! Luckily though all goes to plan…

I really enjoyed this book by Ms Snow. Lately I’ve had a run of so-so books but this one caught my attention and kept me reading long after I should have turned the light off and snuggled down to sleep. Why? Because it is well written, the characters are believable despite the slightly unbelievable premise and the sex is h…h…hot! Some really unique lines and descriptions that I haven’t come across before of an act written about a million times.

Also there is nothing else to distract from what the plot is all about. No annoying extra characters or murder mystery – you get my drift – it is just about Veronica and Kristoff spending their first night together in the most deliciously sexy of ways.

So if you want a short-ish read, that’s full of sex, a little different and artfully crafted, The First Time might just be the book for you!
