Author: Katie Kacvinsky
Pages: 224
Publisher: Houghton Mifflin Harcourt/ Thomas Allen & Sons
Release Date: May 8, 2012

Summary: (Goodreads)

Like his name, Gray is dark and stormy. Dylan, a girl always searching for what’s next, seemingly unable to settle down, is the exact opposite: full of light and life. On the outside, they seem like an unlikely couple. But looks can be deceiving and besides, opposites attract.

What starts as friendship, turns into admiration, respect and caring, until finally these two lone souls find they are truly in love with each other.

But staying in love is not as easy as falling in love. If Dylan and Gray want their love to last, they’re going to have to work at it. And learn that sometimes love means having to say you’re sorry.

*Received for review from publisher for honest review*


This was a refreshing read, and it was a great read because of the cover and the summary that drew me into reading. I loved how Dylan and Gray each had different point of views in the book because it was a different perspective seeing and what they were thinking. Kacvinsky is a great writer because she catches your attention of the novel from the beginning. It was enlightening to read a good contemporary about a girl and a boy who fall in love under different circumstances. Each character grows under the number of months the couple is together. 

First Comes Love is one of those stories that is really well put together and Katie Kacvinsky ability to create these two opposite characters together was very well done. Everyone will enjoy Dylan and Grays personalities and the way they also fall in love. Gray is closed off from everyone because his family is falling apart due to tragedy. Then he meets this open minded girl who opens up the world to him during this time. I loved the chemistry between them and Dylan is one of those characters that will make you think about life and how you want to live it. 

During some of the novel Gray and Dylan go through many things that brings them together since their first meeting at his school then following the course of their relationship they have a very strong connection. It was a fun read with how Kacvinsky lets her characters fall in love and they go through the ups and downs of the relationship. The characters felt real once you read them and the event leading up to their relationship lets them care and respect the others personality. It was fun, fast and the ending was cute! These characters will make you laugh, cry and see that these two can make it.  Overall a great read! I am looking forward to many works by this author!
