A First Time Gay Romance
It was supposed to be a joke--hiring a male "entertainer" for my buddy's bachelor party. We'd have some fun, a few laughs and go home to our girlfriends. But that's not what happened.
I haven't been rising to the occasion lately, and now my girlfriend's questioning our whole relationship. She's convinced I'm batting for the other team (or catching) but I keep telling her we're just going through a rough patch. Every relationship has its ups and downs...right?
The only problem? Even though I'm with her, I can't stop thinking about him, Tristan, the dancer from the other night--thinking about him in ways that I never thought I'd think of another man. And what's worse? My girlfriend knows. She knows, and she wants me to try it.
And why not? I just might like it...
HIS FIRST TOUCH is a first-time gay romance between a reluctant, inexperienced young man and a worldly "male entertainer" who's seen it all but is ready to settle down. Features a perfect blend of sweetness and spice with a dash of humor and a HEA. You can't go wrong with this one!

He was in even better shape than I remembered—which seemed impossible as right now he had his clothes on—and I felt myself getting jealous as I looked at him.
He had perfect blonde hair like a surfer model and a tan that looked like delicious caramel. His chest was threatening to pop out of the neck of his loose t-shirt and he had a necklace hanging right between his enormous pec muscles to draw even more attention to it.
Christ, I’m looking at his pec muscles!
I turned to look away, but that’s when it happened. Tristan reached out and grabbed my chin with a firm hand and pulled my eyes back to his. I felt my cheeks blush as I stared into his beautiful blue eyes. They belonged on a magazine cover and he had to have known it.
“Don’t be scared,” he told me. “There’s nothing to be scared of.”

His First Touch by Aspen Gray is a contemporary m/m romance about Bryce finally realizing his sexuality with the help of a male dancer, Tristian... it only takes a little encouragement from his girlfriend. This book is fun, sexy, and just a bit of drama mixed in. I really liked the characters and felt drawn in by their story.
I received an advanced reader's copy of the book and I am voluntarily leaving my honest review and recommendation.
Wow what an interesting story! I was at first turned off because of a women being indirectly involved but I mustered threw the story. The m/m sex scene was well written. I loved the two characters Bryce & Tristan who got involved. The only other thing that bothered me was the non use of safe sex so I’m assuming that isn’t a concern in this storyline.
A very quick read & an overall good book.
