You always remember your first time…
Whether it’s the couple who decides not to go through with it, the two boys who finally aren’t ashamed, the newlyweds 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–or, of course, the two young lovers fumbling and laughing, getting everything wrong. These are the memories that will never fade.
Join nineteen fantastic authors as they pull back the curtain and give you a peek inside that one intense moment in their characters’ lives when everything changes and nothing will ever be the same again.
Featuring stories from some of the hottest names in New Adult, Young Adult, and Romance including New York Times Bestselling authors J.Lynn/Jennifer Armentrout, Molly McAdams, Sophie Jordan, and Carrie Ryan.

What motivated you to join up with other authors for this project? Do you like collaborating with writing peers?
“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 thought the concept for the general story was so fun, and definitely something I would normally love to write anyway. The fact that it would be with a bunch of other authors sharing their stories as well just made it that much more fun. I do [enjoy collaborating with peers]! It’s not something I’d ever done before this, and it was such a fun experience.” –Molly McAdams, New York Times Bestselling author
“A huge motivation was being a part of an awesome group. Plus I was able to give readers a story with Brit and Ollie.” –J. Lynn, #1 New York Times Bestselling author
“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
“I love a challenge, and once the story idea came to me, there was no turning back. Writing it was an absolute blast!” –Melissa Landers, author of Alienated
