Can you let go of the past when you know what is in the future?And when you know that every kiss is a countdown to goodbye?
This is the story of a love affair, of Ryan and Molly and they how they fell in love and were torn apart.
The first time Molly kissed Ryan, she knew they'd be together forever. Six years and thousands of kisses later she's married to the man she loves. But today, when Ryan kisses her, Molly realises how many of them she wasted because the future holds something which neither of them could ever have predicted.
Each chapter begins with a page detailing a type of kiss, these include; The Kiss to End All Kisses, The Remorseful Kiss, The Judas Kiss and The Tell Me It's Not True Kiss. Some of these kisses are kisses that Molly and Ryan have shared and some they haven't. It's such an interesting part of the book, it really makes you think of the kisses you have taken part in in your life and the moments when they took part.
I felt that Molly and Ryan's relationship was very realistic. It's not all hearts and flowers, they show how much work a relationship takes and the compromises that have to be made. There were times when I disliked Molly a little as I felt that she was sometimes selfish. Yet I think that she changes a lot throughout the book and her regrets are heartfelt.
The First Last Kiss is a heart warming read. It had me laughing and crying but most importantly it made me think of the bigger picture and be grateful for my lot in life. You will not be disappointed with this book, Ali Harris has given us a modern day love story that I highly recommend.
