Romance Contemporary

Trey Christopher returns to Edna Falls, N.C. as a

recovering prescription drug addict which was caused by

the use of needed pain

killers from an injury. With a reputation of a stud in

school he was also discovered by the sports scouts and

recruited into the pros. Following a serious injury, he

comes home unable to play sports anymore and requiring

physical therapy only to be pulled over by a jealous cop


attended school with him and has a grudge to fulfill.

Needing to hire a housekeeper and personal assistant,

Baylee Westring fits the bill. Trey doesn't remember she


the younger school girl whose virginity he would have taken

if not for passing out from too much booze. Baylee knows


doesn't even remember her as she wasn't one of the popular

girls and he didn't even know her. The flame she still

holds for him makes her super cautious. Baylee believes

it's too good to be true when she has her " first time"

again with Trey and they end up in bed. She surprises Trey

that he is, in fact, her first! Feelings are getting


serious until Baylee's brother is blackmailed by the cop

into framing Trey, and Baylee who has refused his advances,

with drugs to get "even" with them both. Convincing Baylee

it was a setup and he hasn't lied to her about being

rehabilitated, as well as his feelings for her, is not to


an easy task.

This is book three in the Braddock Brotherhood


Although the first I have had the pleasure of reading, I


assure you, certainly not the last. I thoroughly enjoyed

this story which is filled with nostalgia and full of

emotions. Barbara Meyers is a talented author composing a

unique plot with equally unique characters. THE FIRST TIME

AGAIN will leave

you with a good warm feeling to see justice and

vindication following for the lovers.

Learn more about The First Time Again


Once Trey Christopher was the small-town golden boy. Now

he’s just another burned-out, washed-up ex-quarterback with

a bum knee, a tarnished reputation, and a simple wish. To

be the kind of man he can face in the mirror.

Moving back home is a start, as is hiring a down-on-her-

luck local woman to help him out around his grandparents’

old homestead.

The last thing Baylee Westring wants is to clean house for

a high school crush who barely remembers her name, but

Trey’s money will finally top off her get-out-of-

Hendersonville-forever escape fund.

Before she hits the road, though, Baylee’s got something

for the man she still finds wildly attractive: the

virginity he almost—but not quite—took during a drunken

teenage party.

Neither is prepared for the emotional impact of that

encounter. But just when Baylee dares to believe in happy

ever after, an old enemy turns up to even the score. And

Trey finds his heart left in the red zone, with his last

chance for love ticking down to zero.
