The First Lights by Christy Pastore

Release Date: September 26, 2018

Cover Design: Hart & Bailey Design Co.





One minute we were a family of four—then, in the blink of an eye, half of my world was gone.

Nearly two years after I received the phone call that changed my life forever, we’re living in a new town and facing new opportunities.

All I want is to be a strong parent for my son and build a good life. I’m still fighting to figure out how to be okay. Falling for someone? Not in the cards for me. I had my happily ever after.

Until he appears.

One look from the ex-NFL player turned high school football coach brings my soul to life. But the man tests my patience with his arrogance. He knows how to manage his players and his students, but he needs a major ego adjustment.

Every night when my eyes close, I tell myself there’s no way I’ll fall for Wyatt Hamilton, I can’t . . . he’s my son’s new coach.


She’s the last thing that I expected. But I’m drawn to her.

When she stepped onto my field with her long sexy legs, arms covered in tiny geometric tattoos, dark hair and her perfect kissable lips—she stoked a fire inside me. I never dreamed that I’d feel that spark again.

Hannah Richman understands my anguish and emotional turmoil, because she’s been through the same hell.

Wanting her is taboo—forbidden. She’s the mother of one of my students.

No matter how much I crave her . . . there’s no way I can have her, it would be inappropriate.

We’re about to redefine that word.




Review by Susan:

This is a new to me author, I was drawn to this book by the blurb, the fact that both the H/h were older and also the seriously hot cover!

The story follows Wyatt and Hannah, both have suffered through immense loss in the past and are starting to move on and live a little, their first meeting ruffles both their feathers but both are a little bit intrigued about the other. Both have a lot of baggage and pain in the past that makes them wary of acting on the chemistry between them also the fact that Wyatt is Hannah’s son football coach makes anything between them forbidden. But rules are meant to be broken and they both know how fragile life is so they grab onto each and hold on for the ride!

This was a wonderful, sweet read, a second chance at not just love but also life. I loved both the characters, both being older and having lived a little was a breath of fresh air. They chemistry between them is off the charts hot, they sizzle the pages! At times this was a painful, emotional, little bit angst, read but it does have its light moments that make you smile. A fab read, but keep tissues handy as you will need them. 4 Stars
