About this ebook

Everyone said they were too young to love.

“Best family series ever! I love the dynamic of this powerful close family. Three brothers, a cousin, and all the spouses and children make for an interesting, spellbinding story you won’t want to put down.” Amazon Customer

“This is a series that you will go back to time and again to reread. Lorhainne Eckhart is that type of writer. Love her stories about family and their journey. This is a great read, full of love for family that sticks together.”, Joann Moore

“I have read all of Lorhainne Eckhart’s Outsiders and Friessens books. In fact, I rarely read the same book more than once, but I have read the entire Outsiders series twice and some of the individual books more than that. Ms. Eckhart’s books are so filled with raw emotion and family relationships and all of those dynamics.” Aherman

“This is a tight-knit family, along with their cousin Andy, his wife, and their children. The kind of family we all wish we had.” Susan H.

Katy and Steven have planned out their happily ever after: marriage, family, and a place of their own. A simple life in a small town with big dreams, just like Katy’s parents, Brad and Emily.

However, life’s hardships soon threaten the future Steven and Katy have planned together.

I enjoyed this but want more. This is a review of the audiobook. Overall 4 Performance 4 Story 4 This is a shortish audiobook at just over 3 hours long. I enjoy this length of book when I want to finish a story in one evening or while driving for just a couple of hours. This is my second audiobook by Curt Bonnem and I really enjoy his voice. I hope he does more books in this series. First Love is book 6 of The Friessens series but you don't have to have read the others to enjoy this one. Katy and Steven are young and in love. Katy is a high school senior while Steven has graduated and is now an apprentice electrician. They want to get married in August but both sets of parents are against it. This book really resonated with me. My husband and I got engaged while I was a senior in high school and he was a freshman in college. Out parents never really spoke out against us getting married but I know they all thought we should wait until we were older. All of the passion of young love in this book brought back many memories. It's a good story about Katy and Steven asserting themselves as young adults and getting ready to start their lives together. The story ends with an HEA but I really want to learn more about this couple. The next book in the series, Family First, is also about Katy and Steven and I'm looking forward to reading it. I was given a code for the audiobook by the publisher but this did not influence my opinion of the story or my review.
