    1. Im such an idiot for trying this without waiting for more info. Never again.Stopped reading in the moment when they break up and start sleeping with other people. They maybe were each others first and last but well the between should count too. When i read the title i really had some expectations.Also adding that they are faithfull when they are in relationship together, at least that 50% of book i read.Edit 18.8.- I just found out that there are 2 endings one official with HFN and one "original [...]

I can't survive without you. You're the blood in my veins and the beat of my heart. I live for you.I've been following Rachael Duncan ever since her debut book Tackled by Love.

    3. My heart is a little bit of a mess right now. In a good way, of course. I went into First and Last slightly apprehensive, despite my love of all things Rachael Duncan. And honestly, I have no idea why. Maybe because the blurb didn’t give me a lot of clues. Maybe because I was reading it off the back of another excellent book. Maybe because I’m just plain ol’ moody. Whatever the reason, it turns out I had no reason to worry. This book was beautiful. It was smart, and well written. It had hu [...]

    4. This BOOK!!!! OH MY GOD Outstanding!!! I had every emotion going through me while I consumed this unbelievably amazing book. I loved how the story was told through the perspective of Blake, but what really got me was the flashbacks to how they first met all the way up to the present. Showing us how their relationship was not always perfect, but absolutely beautiful when it was. I loved Blake and Mia's characters so much. They really drew me into the book and I felt like I was watching it all tak [...]

    5. 5 A-MAH-ZING starsWOW that was one hell of an emotional read but what an amazing read that I absolutely inhaled in less than 12 hours, I could not put it down.I first fell in love Rachel Duncan's writing when I decided to check out Hopeless Vows. To say she writes beautiful romances is an understatement. I absolutely was spell bound by her writing in Hopeless Vows so when I saw she had a new book releasing soon I had to check it out. The synopsis intrigued right from the moment I read it. Knowin [...]

    6. Favorite Quotes:I'm like a kid who has seen fireworks for the first time. I'm both amazed and so damn happy.When you're weak, I'll be strong; when you're sad, I'll bring you joy; when you're down, I'll lift you up. I will forever be there for you and I'm honored that you chose me to share your life with.

    7. "You were my first, Mia." "And my last."This was not my first and will not be my last Rachael Duncan book (I actually said these words for my review of Hopeless Vows). This is actually my second book and I can now say I am officially obsessed with her books.Told from the male POV, the chapters go back and forth from present to past and it is done beautifully.

    9. First and Last Rachael DuncanI loved this story sory much. Blake steals my heart from the beginning and now I don't want to let him go!This is a beautiful story about best friends moving on to another level in their relationship and the fear of losing each other. The story is told in Blake's POV and the chapters alternate between the present time and the past. I don't want to give away any details; there are obstacles that surface and insecurities that make their journey take a detour. There are [...]

    10. 5 Perfect and Amazing Stars"You were my first, Mia. And my last."First and Last by Rachael Duncan was an emotional, beautiful, heartfelt read. I've read all of Rachael's books and loved them all, this one by far my favorite one. She continues to blow me away. This story had so many feelings for me, I cried, laughed, swooned, gasped, and wanted to toss my kindle at times. This is Blake and Mia's story who quickly became friends at the age of six, inseparable from their on out. To Blake realizing [...]

    11. Ugh, you know, I really wanted to love this story. I read the blurb and decided to read it since I tend to enjoy the "friends to lovers" trope. But sadly this book did literally nothing for me. I hate writing negative reviews. Despise it. As a writer myself, I know what's like to have your words criticized, but to be honest, this book angered me. Firstly, it was very anticlimactic. The prologue pulled me in. I was thinking that it was going to be really good considering the suspense it provided [...]

    12. This is a beautifully written love story. It is told from the point of view of Blake. I love how Duncan was able to go back and forth from the present to the past. I was on the edge of my seat at the end of each chapter wondering what was going to happen next. This book pulled on many emotions for me, hate, fear, love, you name it. I even cried during pieces of the book because it hit home. Blake and Mia live next door and are the best of friends but what happens when one of them wants more? Can [...]

    14. ****ARC provided by author in exchange for an honest review****First and Last by Rachel Duncan is the first book I've ever read from this author. And I can tell you, emphatically, it will not be my last. Written in Blake's POV and in flashback, you are taken on journey of Blake and Mia's love story. Through their happiness, loss, pain and sorrow. You will root for them, you will feel their heartache and you will fall in love right along with them. That epilogue, MY GOD!!!!!

    15. Wow! First and Last is one of those books that takes you on a rollercoaster ride of emotions. This is a friends to lovers story that is full of highs and lows. If that’s not enough, it also takes place in the present and the past. Will we be able to hold on, or will our relationship go up in flames?I didn’t realise the significance of this sentence until I read this book and it summed it up perfectly. And just like that sentence, I didn’t know how Blake’s and Mia’s story would end.This [...]

    16. 4.5 Mountain StarsDuncan shows more of her range in this unique novel of love through time, trials, and tender hearted moments. First and Last was not what I was expecting, not that I knew what to expect with Duncan's previous works being filled with twists and turns. It is a contemplative look at love as it grows between flawed humans that also change and grow themselves over time. If you are in the mood for a book on a lazy afternoon, this may be the perfect mellow read for you. Even with its [...]

    17. Male POV (you could tell it was written by a woman)Crazy in love with our heroine, his childhood sweetheart.Makes a stupid mistake, not entirely his fault and they break up in college. In the "between", they are with other people.They make up and stay together for life and get married, pop out kids. He's a firefighter and smokejumper so risks his life. They are each other's firsts and last. Pretty self explanatory.

    18. Beth's ReviewWOW that was one hell of an emotional read but what an amazing story. I was very interested in reading this one so when I saw that the ARC had landed on my kindle I decided to immediately jump in and I absolutely inhaled it in less than 12 hours. I first fell in love Rachel Duncan’s writing when I decided to check out Hopeless Vows. To say she writes beautiful romances is an understatement. I absolutely was spell bound by her writing in Hopeless Vows so when I saw she had posting [...]

    19. First and Last is only the second book by Rachael that I have read. The first book was Hopeless Vows and that was when I fell in love with her writing. The stories are completely different but equally amazing. Ok. to Mia and Blake's epic love story. I don't want to spoil anything so I will try to make my review short and sweet. Blake and Mia have been best friends since they were six years old. It wasn't until they were fourteen when Blake is hit with the realization that he wants more. He doesn [...]

    20. I wish I could give a book more than 5 Stars – I would prefer 5 Million Stars. This story was AMAZING! I started it last night before bed and honestly, I could not put it down. I finished the book maybe 5 minutes ago – I still have tears flowing down my face, I don’t even know if they are happy tears or sad tears. Rachael Duncan – this was the first time I have ever read a book from you, I am beyond impressed – you have such talent. I’m actually overwhelmed with emotions and cannot b [...]

    21. I was prepared to writte a glorious review and recommand this book to everyone Until I reach the last pages.If you read it do not, I repeat DO NOT READ THE EPILOGUE !! It will ruin everything ! :(This book was about the sweetest, purest love there is. Both characters were perfect yet they felt real. The story was perfect, the flashbacks were perfectly chosen and used Until this damned epilogue. Seriously ! I don't understand authors who feel the need to add extra drama just for the sake of it. I [...]

    22. 5 out of 5 starsSeriously, this book has left me with one of my worst book hangovers yet this year. Ms Duncan did a fabulous job of crafting a story that was virtually impossible to put down -- I hated having to go to work everyday and not being able to just read it from start to finish. I don’t want to give away much of the story because not having more than the synopsis is what made part of the reading process so enjoyable. I’ll just tell you how I felt while reading and hopefully inspire [...]

    23. From the very beginning, Rachael Duncan, captured me as a reader. I exchanged sleep in favor of pages and sent hatemail to her when I was worried about certain situations (Don't worry! I always followed it up with a heart. It was loving hatemail). You'll know which parts once you read it.Blake and Mia's friends to lover story had me holding my breath through most of the book because of the way its told alternating the present with the past. It's filled with heartache and plenty of moments for wh [...]

    24. Reviewed on Behalf of Give Me BooksFEELS! All the Feels! This book will give them ALL to you! My heart was in my throat most of the time and my emotions were on a rollercoaster. And I wasn’t getting off this rollercoaster willingly. “When did my best friend go from this nerdy girl who always wore those stupid dresses to this hottie with a killer body?”I love a good friends-to-lovers romance and this one was exceptional! Blake and Mia have been best friends since they were six years old. It [...]
