You always remember your first time…
Fifty First Times is a collection of fictional short stories from a variety of published Young Adult, New Adult, and Adult Romance authors aimed at a New Adult audience. Each story magnifies a moment in two characters’ lives that shows the reader their decision to take physical intimacy to a new level, the events leading up to this moment and in some cases, the events that follow. It’s about the couple who decides not to go through with it, the two boys who finally aren’t ashamed, the couple whose wedding night could very well be their last night together, the deaf pair who have no choice but to take body language to a new level, proving that love can exist underneath the external layers of humanity, and of course the two young people fumbling and laughing, getting everything wrong yet making a memory that will never fade.
Short stories by the following authors are included
Julie Cross | J. Lynn | Sophie Jordan | Mark Perini | Carrie Ryan | Molly McAdams
Roni Loren | Cole Gibson | Gennifer Albin
Just to name a few!

“Well, I started this insane projected and was hit over the head with the idea during the Romantic Times convention last year. Luckily, I was in the presence of some amazing authors and able to walk right up and pitch the idea to them. Which is literally what I did, “Fifty First Times, A New Adult Anthology…are you in?” And to my complete surprise, it totally worked. I still can’t believe the authors we have onboard. And I can tell you, the stories are just fabulous. I loved every minute of reading them!” – Julie Cross, International Bestselling author of the Tempest Series and creator of Fifty First Times
“I was really excited to join this project because I loved the concept from the first moment I heard it. First times. Firsts are so full of intense emotions–angst and joy and fear and excitement–whether it’s someone’s first time ever or the first time with that special person. So I knew it would be a blast to write a story about—in the case of my story, “Two in the Morning”—two guys who have been best friends forever but who may be developing feelings beyond that. As for writing with this group of talented authors, what’s not to love? There are so many fresh perspectives and original concepts in this anthology that I can’t wait to read all of the other stories!” –Roni Loren, bestselling author of the Loving on the Edge series
“I saw “Fifty First Times” as a unique opportunity to tell a different type of story than the fiction I’m accustomed to writing. Julie was very encouraging and helped me push the story in some interesting directions I hadn’t anticipated.” –Andrew Shaffer, author of Fifty Shames of Earl Grey
